Manipulator's special abilities

Manipulators can be unlocked by winning the final game of the Power House League. Their trick strategy is called "Manipulated". This changes your play without you having to call audibles. For example, if you came out in I-form-Normal, HB dive, they can manipulate you to Singleback-Normal, PA Boot, then force you to snap the ball early. Know your playbook well. This also applies in Defensive playbooks. Sometimes, they can force you to run a play, leaving you no choice, such as a Superstar HB forced to run a play called by the coaches. To counter, do not bother taking your time calling audibles like Peyton Manning. If you can pick your play, come out and snap the ball. Alternately, just play as a wide receiver and break your own routes if you get manipulated into a passing play. Defensively, after you get manipulated, you can call an audible back to plays you are more comfortable with because they cannot jump snaps. If that fails, just control the safeties and hang on for pass deflections, or control anyone who has less chance of being blocked and try for a tackle. They mostly force you into two safeties deep, with everybody else in man coverage. If you are playing as Manipulators, the special abilities are initiated randomly and automatically.
