  • 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.

  • Yeah, people can still join after we've started. I don't know if the roster update can be applied though, because the league's already been set up.

    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 also forgot to mention, I heard there is no salary cap for Online Franchise, if that is still the case, I am setting into effect a salary cap of $127m for our 2009 season, so then there will actually be a reason to have a FA competition!

  • 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.

    I'm not sure what exactly the problem is, but do you know what your NAT is at? Sometimes if its at moderate or strict, you'll have connection problems with others. You'll want it to be "OPEN," and you do that by opening up some ports.

    The ports you should open, according to the Microsoft support, are

    * TCP 80
    * UDP 88
    * UDP 3074
    * TCP 3074
    * UDP 53
    * TCP 53

    Here, this is a good guide for port forwarding:

    Yeah, I just thought I would give it a shot......but yeah if anyone is willing to give up one of their staring guards let me know. Its hard to trade with the hawks because they do not have great depth in Madden this year.

    I'm disappointed with the situation regarding trading for picks. If you can't trade for picks, and there's no salary cap... getting difficult to really consider it a "franchise". If there's no picks, is there no draft, either? I like the idea and will stick it out, but some of the features that seem to be lacking are kinda big deals to my admittedly micro managerial long-term planning preferences.

    You can join after Wednesday, only you'll be taking over a team that the computer was controlling before- thus your record might suck to begin with, depending on who it is.

    Better deal, yes. Though nothing really interesting at the moment (Shame draft picks can't be involved...). All that does is downgrade my O-Line for a better backup DE. Naaaaah.
