Madden 11 Online Franchise (360) - (Week 3)

For all of our NFL Fantasy and gaming enthusiasts. RATING: PG
  • The draft is over and the teams are set. You may now begin playing games. You have 10 days starting tomorrow to finish your game for the week. I will advance to week 2 at that time. Again, Thursday September 2nd you must be done with your week 1 game.

    After the week advances I will make an announcement here and the thread title will change to reflect that. You will have 10 days to complete your game, but strive to do it sooner.





    Original Post:

    So I have went ahead and created the Madden 11 online Franchise for us.


    It is only for the 360.

    The league name is: "Dot NET fantasy Draft"

    The password is: "smurfisthebest"

    My Gamertag: Elite Smurf 88 - Feel free to add me as a friend, just add a note that you are from .NET (and give your .NET screen name if it isn't the same).

    Teams are first come, first serve (Blitzer, if you want the Seahawks, join first).

    I took the Ravens.

    as you can see, this going to be a fantasy draft league, meaning what you are picking is essentially home stadium and uniforms. We will have a live draft on a day and time that works best for everyone. Please post when works best for you. Those who cannot participate in the live draft will be autopicked according to their draft board.

  • Haha I woke up and walked into my living room and just gave my buddy the stare of death... said to him, "If I get stuck with the Rams or SteAlers because of you, I'ma kill you." He(muxpux) looked at me and said, "what i do maan?" I said, "dot net has a franchise draft league up as of this morning and people already calling their teams.. if I get stuck with a shit team cause you can't finish your you vs. PC game, I'm gonna fucking freak out!" So he finished his game and I proceeded to snag the bungals, even though all but the ravens were available.. I just didn't have the heart to jack blitzer... I saw he had called it lol.

  • What are the rules for it? (What days are game days and such).

    I may be interested, but with 2 sets of twins, if I don't have a set schedule as to when I will be playing, it may be impossible for me to play when everyone else is.

    And my Xbox Live User Tag is AaronFowler78.

  • You will have a max of 10 days to complete your game for the week. once everyone has played their game for the week, I will advance and a new 10 day cycle will start. Example, everyone completes their game after day 4, I advance and a new 10 days is opened.

    When it comes to head to head you both need to be proactive in trying to set a time. If you need an extension come to be with a SET DAY and TIME you will be playing it, if it is reasonable I will grant an extension.. Last time the franchise mode was killed by waiting too long for people to play their games. 10 days should be more than enough to get the game in.

    They can join, I would prefer they sign up for .NET first though, would like to be able to communicate with them here as well as there.

    But, yeah, the more the merrier. Get them on board.

  • I open to any weekday, and if we could start at that 6:35 time that would be awesome. But, whatever works for the most people. Im out of town this Sat. Other than that weekends could work for me too. Other than times, any day could work for me really.

  • Man, I've been playing on All Pro, which is what I normally do, and with Madden 10 I did alright, but this year, I'm sucking playing the computer.

    Looks like I will be the suck of the league and have the 1st overall pick in the draft...

    lol



    I normally play a custom setting in between All-Pro and All-Madden. On All-Pro i score 50+ Points per game on average and usually only give up like 7. On All-Madden the CPU is just insane...any strong running-back is untackleable. Even if you stuff the run he will break 4 tackles and go 60+ yards.

  • Since it appears that time is against all of us, why don't we have everyone just rank the players in their priority and do an auto draft?

    For example, if I fell that D'Brikashaw Ferguson is a must have, I would make him my #1 player, and when the auto draft is done, if he's available when I draft, I will get him.

    I know I did some ranking of players already...

    Just a thought.

    This is probably what will end up happening. I would like to get a live draft in though.

    Everyone list a time within the next 10 days that will work for you.

    Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday work for me.

    I will be back on Sunday evening (going camping) and will set the date for the draft. It will either be a live, or an auto.
