Madden 10 Online Franchise (Who Wants In?)

For all of our NFL Fantasy and gaming enthusiasts. RATING: PG
  • 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:

    Shoppers, feel free to start browsing the Saints' roster -- I'm in the market for OLB and C.


    I will give you Vallos, Herring and possibly someone else for your starting LG or RG......


    That's an interesting offer... Unfortunately, I am not a raging moron. :D


    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.

  • No not really sorry, I really like Senaca. I like my back up having mobile abilities. Also I usually role with a 3-4 defense and Mebane does a fine job for me at the nose.

    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.

  • Hey smurf I got your trade offer and I'm trying to accept it but when I go to accept it says "The trade cannot be completed at this time. One or both of the teams in the trade have not completed their game for the current week." so do I just wait until Wednesday or are we both supposed to finish our week 1 game first.

    Edit: Smurf I gave you a counter offer to your trade since I just realized how old pat williams is, let me know what you think.

    I don't know, I really wanted a guard that could replace Rob Sims. Gosh I just wish the Hawks had better depth so I could make some good trades.

    I hope you're joking...

    Brian Russell is a 76, and Rob Sims is a 73. Yeah, he'd be good for depth though... but I kind of need my starting LG. Even though he's only the forth best lineman on the team, he's still an 87. So essentially what you want me to do is give you my good players, while getting nothing in return.

    I'll think about it..... :sarcasm_off:

    Dang, I didn't realize your LG was an 87....I thought he would have been a little lower overall. Just thought I would throw out a deal and see what happened. Let me know about other deals you think would work.

  • Deric when you search for the online franchise just search "Net Nation" and then it will ask for the password and I believe the password is "GoHawks" (If it isn't just look through this thread I'm sure it says on like the 3rd or 4th page. Or you can ask eldocehombre for the password.
