View Full Version : OM Madden Online Franchise (Xbox)

Hey Guys,

This year marks Madden's first foray into Online franchise mode where you play a season with a team against up to 31 other players. We tried to start one at work but didn't get enough people. I figure the OM is the perfect place to set this up and get it going with 8 or more people (the remaining games are played against the CPU).

Rules:

You pick a team based on your preference and skill level (honor system). You play one game a week, whenever you can agree to it. The week is advanced on Monday night. If you miss your game, it gets simmed anyway.

Once we're started we'll have a vote:

Fantasy draft
Existing NFL rosters (pick a team based on your perference and skill level)

Committed players only! All levels welcome!

Friends Spencer1745

I'll send out invites once we get 8+ folks. I'm happy to be commish but the only caveat is I will be away for Christmas so that week won't get simmed.

I'll play. XBL: Doggcow

Send me a message when you send me the invite please.

I also vote we disallow Broncos usage as one of the teams. (Is there an option online to use user created teams?)

and I call dibs on Cinci/Houston because their uniforms look cool.

I'm down, Ty307. And I think Rhymesayers is down, he was for another one we tried to get going but failed. I'm down for either a fantasy draft(pretty fun and interesting) or just regular, just let me know.

PS3 is better!

I have a PS3, the game looks identical on both consoles. The Xbox community is far superior to that of the PS3. Thus, XBox wins this debate easily.

We've got 8 people guys. I'll send out invites tonight at 7 pm CST. Anyone else that wants to join before then is welcome.

As there are eight of us I recommend using the AFC North vs. the NFC North since they're the most balanced teams and we'll play each other a lot.

I'll send the invites out later tonight guys (I've had to run out so I'm thinking by 9 pm CST). No plans to draft tonight so don't worry about being there.

Since we've never played before, I guess it's first come first serve with the teams.

We should do a fantasy draft!

Chris
10-31-2009, 12:13 AM
I'll add the names tomorrow. We have 12 now. Enough for 3 divisions. 16 would be ideal.

I have no invite, whats the deal with the league?

Chris
11-04-2009, 07:06 AM
Sorry, I was sent off on an unexpected work trip over the weekend.

Everyone should be friended. If you haven't been, please post your gamertag here.

I think it will be easier if we just stick with existing teams rather than doing a fantasy draft. That way once everyone's invited you can see who you're playing and set it up independently without all of us having to gather. If people feel strongly that we should do a fantasy draft, let me know.

Chris
11-04-2009, 03:59 PM
If anyone knows which third division that matches up the best with the AFC North and NFC North schedule wise please tell me.

Everyone should have a franchise invite now even if you're not on my friends list (nadwiggy you still need to activate your online franchise before I can send).

Picking Teams

First come first serve (if you're really good try to pick a less good team to keep it competitive)

Teams must be NFC North or AFC North. If both are full go NFC West.

We have 10 right now. I took the pack.

Chris
11-05-2009, 07:16 AM
Is anyone still experiencing problems?

Chris
11-06-2009, 08:57 AM
I'm going to check who's joined tonight.

If you bought the game you shouldn't have to purchase franchise mode.. just use the redeem code on the back of the game manual.

I took the Vikings, I'll bump down to the Bengals if need be. I'm kinda good, but I never play teams other than Denver, so I don't know how I'll do without them as I am keen on utilizing Denver's players to their fullest extent, I don't know the capabilities of other teams nearly as well.

I just want em cuz I have Favre, ADP, and Shiancoe on my fantasy team :)

I figured it was too hard to organise unless people really want it. The last time I did one it flat ou didn't work.

Have you sent a franchise invite to 'Champ Dawkins' ?


I dont recall seeing one. Let me know

Yes virtually certain I have. Let me know if otherwise.

How long until we start? My Xbox just RROD and it might take me a week or so to replace/fix it...

I won't sim the first week through until Monday the 23rd.

I won't sim the first week through until Monday the 23rd.

Im going to try a manual fix, should be able to do it, got a friend with EE and CPTS experience.

If not I'm just gonna buy an elite, I've wanted to upgrade to 1080p anyway.

Chris
11-10-2009, 07:56 PM
Feel Free to play a game if you and your opponent are already set up. If you didn't pick a team in the 3 divisions I mentioned just leave the franchise and send me a message to invite you again.

nadwiggins
11-10-2009, 09:03 PM

My xbox will be dead for at least two weeks. I'm shipping it in to microsoft for a free repair tomorrow. I'll take a starting loss if theres nothing that can be done, but I'll be on daily once my xbox is back...

Jerry Curl
11-17-2009, 12:48 PM
Add me Vlad and hit me up whenever, I'm usually down.
Somehow this ban wave hasn't hit me :). But I barely played mw2 burnt before I bought it, everything else is working good for me too but I'm not gonna try and wave 4 games (l4d2/AC2) until the new firmware is out. If you're banned you might wanna check walmarts around you, I just picked up an arcade for $200 and it came with a $100 gift card...
