It would be awesome if we could get an OM online franchise going. If you're interested in joining, post here with your PSN and the team you would like to control. If you have any suggestions for the league (settings, etc.), feel free to post them. There are a few users that said they are picking up the game this week, so we won't be starting until they're good to go. More players are better.There's still time, sign up! :)

We can decide on the rules once it's determined that there are enough people interested in a PS3 online franchise. I think the standard settings will be fine, though I wouldn't mind turning off the accelerated clock. Fantasy drafting will be difficult to coordinate with all the different time zones unless we do it on a Sunday afternoon or something, so we should probably use the default rosters. It is expected that football etiquette reflective of the real NFL will be followed (ie. not going for it on every 4th down).

#1: teknic93 (Eagles)
#2: Drek717 (Broncos)
#3: CanUdigIT420 (Patriots)
#4: Wolfpack682 (49ers)
#5: Hartreq (Packers)
#6: bronco27dw (Giants)
#7: robertisyourface (Dolphins)
#8: Donaldflamenco (Redskins)
#9: den2329 (Panthers)
#10: Atwater27 (Falcons)
#11: jw449 (Seahawks)

Teams are tentative, you can pm me to request a change.

I'd be interested.

Drek717 - if I can't have the Broncs I'd settle for the Rams or the Pats.

My xbox disc drive is toast and I refuse to pay any more money for XBL, which I barely use. If I pick it up it will be on PS3. I'll let you know.

You should all wait until after the rosters are set. Otherwise it's goofy.

You guys are gonna have to have a lottery for the Broncos. I'd be down, but I haven't bought it yet... is the new Madden worth it? I've been burned out since 2010.

A lottery for the Broncos sounds like a good idea. I was going to pick them too, but I thought that would be unfair to claim them considering I started the thread!

Should we have a lottery for the Broncos, or just go with the current team selections?

The gameplay is a lot better this year, but I do miss some of the things from the old franchise mode (better trade process, ability to edit players). The AI is still quirky, but at least they cut down on the defensive backs defending passes that they can't see. I've heard mixed reviews for the game from my friends, but I like it.

Unless the league fills up really quickly, the roster update after final cuts will likely be available before we start. :thumbs:

As a non online player, is it possible for everyone to play as the Broncos?

That would make the teams even...

Its better but still has its issues. I had a leaping one handed pick with Champ last night. Its almost pointless to play D, especially against a team with a top TE. I usually ask Madden..thats has worked out ok.

Overall, so far its much better than last years. Doesn't seem as easy to pick the same plays over and over again and be successful.

What is the time commitment

I think playing two games a week would be ideal. We could do one game a week though if people have very busy schedules, that just makes for a very long season. Once all the interested players have signed up, we can work out a schedule.

Mixed opinion on the fantasy draft... I'll put it to a poll when the league is finalized.

It might be difficult to coordinate a draft with this many players, but I'm not opposed to it.

Doggcow
09-05-2012, 12:21 AM
Denver will have a huge advantage every year then because no one will play a whole chiefs/raiders/chargers roster... So they will get 6 smashing wins vs CPU.

Doggcow
09-05-2012, 12:23 AM
Also, we shouldn't allow CPU trades. If we do, ONE CPU trade max BEFORE Season starts. And it has to be legit. No Colquitt for Adrian Peterson crap. We all know Colquitt is way better and that's just not fair to the rest of the league if they only give up AD for him.

I wish there was a spectate option so that I could pop in and watch your games. Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to have time for this this year. Plus, I'm not very good. I only beat the raiders by 18 points.

Unfortunately there is no fantasy draft in Madden 13. They took it out. And EA has said there will be no fantasy draft in any of the upcoming patches.

We should really wait until the patch to come out before we start. That will also allow some other guys to join up.

I wasn't aware that the fantasy draft was removed. I guess that solves that problem though. :)

LOL We could try to consolidate the divisions if we get a nice even number (12,16..etc) to get the max number of games against each other.

We would have to play the CPU I believe. Not %100 sure, but I think whatever teams are not chosen will be replaced by the CPU.

I'm playing a private online CCM as Broncos HC with only 1 team. Reason for playing online is that my CCM can get tuner updates, therefore having best gameplay available. So CPU is controlling the other 31 teams.

You can only edit for play now mode. Which doesn't make a lot of sense. 99% of the people that play Madden don't care about editing rosters for a single game mode. Its got to be the most stupid thing EA has ever done with Madden.

i'm quite ticked about the exclusion of fantasy draft. figuring out draft strategies then running a season with those picks was about the most fun madden offered. It's not like it would take anymore to code it in... just stupid.

At least the defensive coverage schemes are finally ironed out and corrected. No more getting beat by the same pass over and over again with no way to stop it. (at least not yet, lol)

Wait what? Champ gets smoked every game for me, repeatedly. Spotlighting receivers does nothing. Blitzes don't get there, and zones get shredded by TE's.

If you know tricks, I'd gladly like to hear them.

I've played games both on All Pro and All Madden.
And 1 online match. I've only been burned for 1 TD
With Champ so far. And that's because the ball was
thrown perfect. And Champ was in press trailing.
Safety couldn't get there and they got outrun.

Try shifting the DL. Changing what gaps they attack.
Same with LB's. And if you blitz with no help over
the top, think about playing your corners off their
man. Also try re-blitzing players. When you do this,
they blitz straight down, versus whatever angle
they were originally blitzing.

Watch out if you spotlight a WR while
playing zone.It seemed like it would throw
The whole defense out of wack in Madden '12.

Champ hardly ever gets torched if ever for me. I use a 4-3 on first down unless the guy has 3 WRs or more on the field. I switch it up between man and zone. If I'm winning and the guy has 3+ WRs on the field, I almost always use a dime package. I blitz once in awhile. Last but not least and because D is so hard to play in this game. Once the ball is hutted, i don't touch any of the buttons..i let the computer do the work on D. Only had 1 game where i got torched and i think the computer played a roll in that considering the guy audibled and threw a ball to Joe Staley for a 15 yard reception.

Also, I'm sure you have but make Harris the nickle corner. He's a beast.

Edit: If you go over the Broncos DBs...Champ, Porter and Harris have better stats in man to man than zone and aren't very good at press coverage.

I blitz A LOT. So I play almost only man coverage. I put Woodyard in as the Will for Speed. I've found this game is won exclusively on turnovers (I'm speaking purely online btw). After a while defense has settled in, but corners still get blasted left and right, even in off coverage and cover 2 WR's are running free on 3rd and 20... Really frustrating.

And yes, of course I use Harris as #3! Bolden as #4.

I think a Fantasy Draft would be fun, and balances it out a bit. Then we can also load up the same divisions/Conference for more PvP games.

Just switch it up. Most guys are pass happy in this game so use nickel. My strategy is to have one more CB than WR on the field unless he picks a 4 WR set. You gotta have a good combo going. If you blitz a lot you'll give up big screen plays or plays down field etc.

Most points I've given up in my last 10 is 13 with two shutouts.

No way you're playing the same caliber players I am. Everyone I've played has at least a small grasp of offense and can shred zones and man. Every game is 50+ total points. Unless you start running the clock out in the first quarter... then maybe.
