I know there are several people that have expressed interest in doing a madden 13 in the madden thread so I thought I would start a separate thread and begin organizing this. My gamertag is evoxphoenix Xbox 360

We've switched to doing a fantasy draft. I will rearrange teams a bit so we have 3 in each division.

I'd like to have at least 16 teams before we start so that we can fill up 4 full divisions.

All-pro settings on 6 mins quarters with clock runoff, identical to online exhibition play. Please post your gamertag and team desired and I'll get things set up and emails sent off.

So that we can play user controlled teams most often lets pick from certain divisions first so that we can ensure those are full.


AFC East:
-Jets -Casper Bronco (ClintVCP)
-Patriots -Rulon Velvet Jones (Shankolicious)
-Bills -Ratboy (unkopantsu)
-Dolphins

AFC North:
-Steelers -vancejohnson82 (KingMuggsy)
-Ravens -phibacka31 (Realmusician31)
-Browns -stevo3099 (locostevo07)
-Bengals -KouPilot (Joeyselfimage)

NFC North:
-Packers
-Bears -TheElusiveKyleOrton (youngrockwell)
-Vikings -Frisian (whitech0c01ate)
-Lions -Ramblin' Bronco (M4d3 of Sc4rs)

NFC East:
-Giants -Rabb (rabbmast3rflash)
-Cowboys -hookemhess (All Bout Tx)
-Eagles
-Redskins -srphoenix (evoxphoenix)

hmmm, surprised we haven't gotten more interest in this already. I'd like to start with at least 3 full divisions, but would prefer 4 if possible. If anyone has any friends or family that would want to join in and don't play cheap like flaming dingleberries than post their gamertag and what team they would like and I'll add them to the list.

I'll go ahead and create the league itself today and start sending out the invites.

Thanks!

So it looks like they changed how madden 13 career works a bit, you have to choose coach mode then select the active coach of the team you want to control. I.e. for the redskins I took shanny. Invites were sent out, league name is orangemane, password is taco

I enjoy the game, but don't know how much time i'd have to play...

Would we have to complete a game every week?

srphoenix
08-31-2012, 08:46 AM
I'd like to complete a game each week if possible. I saw online though that they have an away setting though so if you're not going to be available then the cpu will just play for your team against your player opponent.

If your interested we could use as many people as possible.

I added the nfc west since the new poster below wants the rams so that means two teams of the four will be filled up. What is your gamertag and i'll get you an invite out this weekend.

Thanks.

Grabbed a copy at Redbox as I'm thinking I'll be able to find it lower than $60 after I gather some older games for trade.

Can I grab the Pats instead? I don't run with the QB much and just figure controlling Vick would be a pain in the ass.

srphoenix
09-01-2012, 06:57 PM
switched you to the pats, I moved over to the Packers as well, RG3 sounds fun, but not really my playstyle anyways.

I'm going to relaunch the league once the rosters update to the current nfl 53 man roster too, so I'll be resending invites to everyone once that occurs.

thanks

How does the league work? Do you play as a coach, create your player, or what?

Not really sure.

srphoenix
09-02-2012, 06:23 AM
Broncos have already been taken, the first thread post shows which teams are still available. I'm honestly not sure how the created player things works with the new connected careers so I'm just limiting it to the coached mode which is essentially online franchise mode.

You can either pick the coach of the team you chose, i.e. shanahan for redskins or create your own coach and pick the team you chose on here. Once the updated 53 man rosters come out I'll launch the league and send out invites.

Added all the new posts into the board and opened a new division since the other ones were starting to fill up.

I'm hoping there's a 53 man updated roster for tomorrow and then I can go ahead and make the league and get invites sent out to everyone. Send me a pm if you want to switch to a different team in the meantime.

I'm coming to find I kinda blow at this game. I think I try to play too much "straight-forward"-type football and don't do all the shifts, audibles, silly schemes, etc. I also hate when those little 13 yr old ****s talk crap when they're beating you, even though they don't know two things about the real game or its history.

Am I ranting like an old man here, telling people to get off my lawn? You bet I am.

I suck too. Most of the time I let the computer pick my play and I never do anything special. I always blitz too.

I am 1-1 online though.

same, although I haven't played a random online, I always reserve my embarrassment for people I know

and I am not just limiting that to Madden

one thing that is nice is you can put yourself on autopilot if you are out of town, I will be on vacation from Thursday this week through Sunday so if it starts around then I will put myself in that mode so the league can move along

New 53 man rosters are going to be released Saturday morning according to EA. Once they are I'll set up the league and get all invites sent out. We have plenty more spots available if anyone is interested or has a friend or family that wants to jump in.

Thanks.

All invites sent out. Rams and Bears came up invalid as you must not have your user names signed into madden yet. Once everyone gets signed in I'll start it up.

Sorry man, had to leave town on a family emergency, so I'm not home to play. I'll be back at home next Monday... if that's too long for everyone to wait, I'll understand if you move on without me.

Agreed, I'll wait until everyone is signed in. We'll skip the preseason anyways so that we can get caught up more quickly.

Hope everything's fine!

So Madden's received a ton of complaints over getting rid of the fantasy draft option and they have now decided to add it back in as well as update the online "franchise" rosters finally.

I would be interested in switching over to a fantasy draft if others don't mind. It means we could all grab a Bronco or two and really design the team to our own liking. Plus I could then reshift everyone into a couple divisions and have us playing each other more.

Let me know if this is something everyone would be interested in changing to.

09-14-2012, 07:13 AM
I switched the teams around a bit so that we basically have 4 full divisions, 2 for each conference. Would something like Sunday night work for the fantasy draft or is a week night better for everyone?

Here is the updated teams (remember you just have that team for the jersey since it is a fantasy draft). I'll delete myself from the old league and get this one set up tonight.

AFC East:
-Jets -Casper Bronco (ClintVCP)
-Patriots -Rulon Velvet Jones (Shankolicious)
-Bills -Ratboy (unkopantsu)
-Dolphins

AFC North:
-Steelers -vancejohnson82 (KingMuggsy)
-Ravens -phibacka31 (Realmusician31)
-Browns -stevo3099 (locostevo07)
-Bengals -KouPilot (Joeyselfimage)

NFC North:
-Packers
-Bears -TheElusiveKyleOrton (youngrockwell)
-Vikings -Frisian (whitech0c01ate)
-Lions -Ramblin' Bronco (M4d3 of Sc4rs)

NFC East:
-Giants -Rabb (rabbmast3rflash)
-Cowboys -hookemhess (All Bout Tx)
-Eagles
-Redskins -srphoenix (evoxphoenix)

Let's do it this Sunday night at 8pm central time/ 7pm mountain time if that works for everyone.

I did a test league and they actually do a good job picking players so if you absolutely can't make it I don't think you'll hate your team. I'll send out invites tonight.

thanks.

Not sure if there is still interest in doing this or not, but I thought I'd post the details one last time and see if we can get enough people to try drafting this Sunday at 7pm mt, 8pm ct.

League name: OrangeMane
password: taco

I've sent all invites out, but in case that didn't work, just search for the league name and enter the password to get in.

Thanks.
