I would like to believe that ratings are based on longer term performance but then explain the extreme changes that take place for some players on a weekly basis. For some veteran players it is a roller coaster, leading to the conclusion that very short-term performance is the key. For example, Will Smith blows a save and he drops from the 90s to a low silver.

In comparison, MLB The Show does base ratings on historical performance and does a much better job of smoothing out changes and applying accurate ratings.

I was looking forward to player updates in OOTP, but the system is such a mess, it just becomes stupid to watch.
