I played my first Xbox live game last night. I popped in NFL2k3 and looked for someone to play. I just went out and challenged people until someone accepted. I lost badly (41-13) though it was close through 3 quarters but then he/she ran away with it late. I do have some questions. 1)I couldn’t complete many passes , with most of them missed. I read another thread on 2k3 on this forum and think I have some good tips. Do most of you use maximum passing feature (I have never tried it before). 2)He would bring a line backer and blitz him from the sides like a corner with great success, often causing me to rush a throw or get hit while I was throwing. 3)He taunted me a lot. Is this common on-line??? I am a big boy and can take it but just don’t want to do it to others if I just happened to match up with a punk. He would do instant replays over and over anytime he scored, or interecepted me or had a big play. 4)I am a newbie but if anybody wants to play tonight (or tomorrow or Thursday night) around 8 or 8:30 E.S.T then I would love to hook up. E-mail me at [email protected] . My handle by the way is "frohlich". 5)Is it common for people to only play with the best teams?? I would assume this would be an easy edge. Thanks for listening.
