Madden 10 Online Franchise (Who Wants In?)

For all of our NFL Fantasy and gaming enthusiasts. RATING: PG
  • My current problem is with the 'My Skill' thing. I score All Madden on rushing, only I'm not THAT good with rushing so it obliterates me when I go to the games. *hah*

  • so, after reviewing the instruction book, it looks like we make a league then draft? So really all were picking is an "avatar" for a team, because all players will be spread around, right?
    Am I reading it wrong?
    And what's with the online franchise code can only be used once??
    I think before we start this we need to figure out what the dilly is? Learn from others online that messed up the first time?

  • Just a few things......

    First, Smokey, just to be clear, gnats= giants?

    Secondly, to answer your question, yes there CAN be an online draft, where we go through all the rounds and pick our players. However, I'm pretty sure everyone, including me, was planning on playing with the original team rosters. But we can still make trades, etc. Although fantasy draft might be a fun alternative after we get bored of the regular rosters....

    Finally, I was wondering if anyone else wants to be in charge of being the commish and getting the league started. I'd definitely do it, and was planning on it (that's why I started this thread to begin with) but there's a possibility I'll be internetless for a bit (in about a month or so). I don't want to be in charge of something if I can't guarantee I'll have access to it at some point.

    So I was wondering if someone else would wanna set this up and be in charge. :th2thumbs:

    Well moving the right stick up makes it a little better, but I am still having trouble.....but is anyone else noticing that the Hawks Secondary can't cover anyone worth crap.

    Oh and watch out for Devin Moore when you play me.......

  • Here's the Online Franchise website too, where you can do all of your roster moves and stuff online:

    http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/madd ... franchises

    Oh yeah, and I think it'd only be fair to wait til everyone joins to start picking up free agents, trading, etc.

  • So far, EA won't let me log in from the website.

    I'll try again from the 360 once I get it up and running online again.

    Try doing the "forgot my password" from the Franchise link, and then just choose to put in your XBOX live gamertag, instead of your email address. Then they should send you the correct login information, including which email address you're registered with. My login, for example, ISN'T the same email address that my XBOX live account uses.


    EDIT: Oh wait, try going into Madden first, and putting in the code that's on the back of the instruction manual. I bet that could be where your problem is occurring.... I think you put in the code through the Madden "Shop" in the main menu, if I remember correctly. If you hadn't done that yet, that could be why it's saying you don't have a valid platform ID.

  • I'm in.

    So, how do things like Free Agents, Drafts, etc. work? How about scheduling? Does one just start playing games V. computer teams? Why no CPU trades?

  • My first scheduled game is against the Lions.

    There is a very strong possibility I will be playing a CPU opponent, unless we get a LOT of people in fast.

  • hmmm...okay let's set wednesday as the deadline for people to enter on time. By Wednesday people can still join, but it is free and clear to make FA moves, trade, etc. after that lets advance every week by 6PM Wednesday unless everyone finishes their games before that. Sound good?

  • Sounds good- maybe after a while we could bump it up to 2 games per week, depending on how it goes. 17 weeks seems kinda long to just finish one season, but we'll see.

    So Wednesday at 6:00 pm we can start picking up free agents, and we can start playing games too?

  • yeah nates right. that gives 3 full days for people to ante up. if its possible for people to still join after that then they can by all means but otherwise we'll move forward the 19th @ 6:00, that way we'll get the roster update fresh.

    Thanks FPD!

  • This game is the best Madden in years.. far and away the best next gen version.

    When I jump online with the Hawks though.. it really makes me hate Brian Russell. Dude is slow as all hell on the game. Which I suppose is fairly accurate.

  • FYI, I'm gonna work on getting in to Live tonight.
    What's the easiest way do you think?
    Join league through xbox live(on the xbox) or go through our league site?
    Just a bit confuse on where I need to enter the code on the instruction book.

  • Best way to do it is through the game dude. Pop in madden, go to xbox live, then join online franchise, search for our league. It will prompt you for a password, and the code on your booklet somewhere in those steps.

  • you know there is a message board on the franchise page too, as well as highlights, it would be hella cool if we used them for trade block stuff and sweet plays!

    EDIT;

    I need at CB at least 79+, LE at least 75+, and a ROLB at least a 70+. Hit me up if you want to put someone up for trade and we can work something out.

  • I would join and use the redskins or panthers but the thing is when I am playing online games it always says "connection to your peer has been lost" somewhere throughout the game and it kicks me out I know it's connection issues but the thing is I am getting 3/4 bars on my connection but it is still booting me out, anyone have advice cause I would love to join.

  • Thanks Smurf..
    Also is it cool if my friend from work joins?(he's a hawks fan and big madden head, has ncaa too.) I can give him the pertinent info upon leagues approval of him joining.

    -SH

    edit: yeah I hate it when people don't play either. He's a big gamer; so I'm sure it'll be fine. He kept playing last years fantasy team even though he was 3-8...I'll get him on tomorrow.
