Well another year has come and gone with no update to OF mode in Madden 12. Im sure they didn't have the time to work on it due to fact they added more gimmicky presentation (that still doesn't match NFL2K5,nearing decade and new generation console later) that most ppl will just press A button to skip after first few days of playing. Im not hear to bash EA, overall they put out (giggity) a decent game.

Im looking for ppl that also enjoy gaming that would be willing to put in a few seasons in. I will have custome rules witch I am looking to implement to ensure enjoyable experience for all. So feedback is welcome & encouraged.

GamerTag for XBox Live: IncognitoKilla (BRONCOS haha first and commish)

Please include team of intrest you dont have to include gamertag at moment if you dont want to. My preference of enjoyable gamers are ppl that play more like "SIM Football" i.e. dont go for it on 4th and 10, use know "glitches" like nano blits, talk hateful (some smack talk is part of the game).

Other Teams taken: (fudge) Packers, Ravens (what do you call a bunch of owls...a parliament. what do you call a bunch of crows/ravens... a murder of crows [ironic? i think not!] )

Teams dont really matter I plan to do fantasy draft to even up the teams and make it more personal. If you hate to play in snow thats coo just pick dome team. Hate the rain? Def dont pick the Jags. Trust me this will be a blast ppl. I will be hashing out some rules that will make it better than norml OF's. Better yet WE can make some awsome rules by collectively bouncing around ideas.

We could even have a vote and be more purductive than real NFL!!!!!!

RULES IN THE WORKS
QT Length: 7 min. 15 sec run off.
Skill LVL: Want to put All Madden but thats one needed for vote.
Trades to CPU teams: More on that later.
Week progression: ASAP not wanting ppl to lose intrest (most likely vote to see what works for ppl)
Some type of rule aginst multiple restarts aginst CPU. Maybe after X amount of restarts equals auto sim of game?? Then if repeated loss of player/draft pick?? To ensure multiple restarts are not needed by turning of injury (I love to knock out ppl's players for multiple weeks as much as next man but I hate restarts worse)??

Remember in 2k5 the had highlights from other CPU games during halftime? That to me is presentation. But I wont lie that intro looks sick for the new Madden.

I do understand everyone wants Broncos. If it gets to point that no one wants to play do to not being Broncos I will choose a nother team (prob a team in whatever division that has no user in it) and no ones the Broncos. I did understand that on this website that could be a major issue. Once again I want to do fantasy draft to even up the teams (something tells me TEBOW will be gone w/ 1st overall pick :)). I also will be having some inovative rules for free agents and trades to CPU teams that we all will enjoy.

TEAMS TAKEN: Broncos, Saints, Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Ravens, Lions, Texans.

If not. Gimme the Eagles.

THOUGHTS ABOUT USER TO CPU TRADES:

So I was thinking that each year we could make 2 trades to CPU teams.

1st trade would be of some one of like position w/in 6 overal ranking. EXAMPLE I want to upgrade my DT position, I waited too long in fantasy draft and best guy overall was rated 76. Well you could trade the player to a CPU team that had a player upto 82 rating. When this type of trade is made the rule will be you cant do trade for same position for TWO YEARS. So next year you could do a WR but not DT.

2nd trade would be, I have player CB rated 86. Well im stocked at CB but lacking a good HB. You would be able to trade to a diffrent position player that is same overall rating. CB 86 traded to CPU team for HB 86.

If ?'s about any of this or better yet ideas please let me know.

TEAMS TAKEN: Broncos, Saints, Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Ravens, Lions, Texans.

I'm definitely in favor of a fantasy draft. As for cpu trades, I think 6 points is even stretching it, MJD is in no way a fair trade with A. Peterson or CJ2K. Optimally we'll just have enough people interested that we won't have more than a couple cpu's anyways.

ChrisToker

I was thinking that maybe we would cap the number of user teams. I have played afew w/ 20 plus players and we didnt make it to playoffs due to lost intrest and ppl stoped playing. I play COD but still find time for my Madden fix. Others just quit when the new COD came out.

I see your point on the 6points maybe too high so we can work out something. I appreciate the feedback.

LUL, Orton with the captain patch running out unannounced.

EA can **** off when it comes to Madden. Same **** every year with little to no innovation because they don't have to put the money in with exclusivity on the NFL license.

ChrisToker
07-23-2011, 04:20 PM
I hear you 100% UberBroncoMan. EA has done a bad job with there exclusive at fans expense. Like it or not 2K will never outbid EA for rights to make NFL game. It drives me bonkers that "if you hate what they do, just dont buy it" argument from ppl. It's all there is, plane and simple.

With that said I would prefer to not have this become a FU EA SPORTS thread. I agree like I said but it's a lost cause now.

Most leagues fall through like week 4, especially with fantasy drafts, when people realized they **** it in the draft.

Thats why I offer the couple of trades per season, that way the ppl that have a couple of holes on roster can get decent overall. I have some buddies that will be joining the league so Im expecting there to be at least a couple of seasons played.

Every year what I normally do is wait to start the OF until 1st roster update. 1st roster update happens between week 1 through week 3. So in the meantime I usually play OF w/out draft so ppl can get a feel for what they want in a team.

I thought they did work on Offline Franchise mode?

ChrisToker
07-24-2011, 09:10 PM
No this will be 2nd year in a row that EA didn't address OF. Allegedly it is the least used mode. I say thats BS, I have never meet anyone that uses SuperStar mode or UltimateTeam more than a few days. IF OF is the least used mode it'd make some sence, due to fact that its generic as ####. Few updates on rosters, no way to practice w/ team, list goes on and on.

This rant goes away from my original request not to bash EA for the evil empire it is so please lets just keep it on track w/ talking about the OF. I plan on making it unique. ProBowl selections, Offence and Defence Players Of The Year, MVP etc.

The NCAA game is so awesome, tough but awesome. Leaps and bounds better than Madden imo.

As of late, I'd agree with you big time. The NCAA games are smoother and have better gameplay. If I liked college football more than the NFL, I'd consider not even getting madden. But I don't.

This years NCAA is great, really is but hopefully Madden brings it as well. Can't write em off yet.

Fantasy Draft is really fun trust me and Doggcows can vauch for me. If you dont want to draft u can still join league and find a cpu team that drafted well and be them.

Previous Maddens have allowed 4-5 leagues u can join at a time in OF. So I plan on running one w/out the draft, so dont be scared its only football.

ColoradoBuff
07-25-2011, 01:31 PM
Not scared....i actually like to do both the Fantasy Draft and without the Draft. I just enjoy it without the draft more. But like i said...i am game!

ChrisToker
07-25-2011, 09:24 PM
ColoradoBuff I dont want you to interpret that I called you scared. It was intended for any one that my have stumbled to thread and then got turned off by draft. As anyone who has done fantasy draft knows it is best way to play. Mo more fighting to be NE because they are rated 98 or some ish.

I think walmart has this too. I think I'm doing Eb though for the Midnight release. Need my tebow fix.

Oh and EB generally does a $20+ trade in for your old madden.

The Madden 12 Demo is now out for XBL and PSN.

1) As always I whoop the CPU's ass on all pro setting 30+ point win, yet manage to get beat on All Madden when Hester breaks 3 tackles on game winning score.

2)The overly hyped presentations to start game are cool, but after 3-4 games they will be skipped when novelty wears off. That makes me wonder if time was well spent on other aspects of game.

3) On the positive side, the new offense an defense audibles and adjustments are simplified (after multiple gamesand retraining of the brain) over current system.

As the game stands right now 6.5/10 with the hope that full access to game will raise the score.

I found a pretty nasty 2-4-5 Nickel setup vs passes. Looks like this


Goodman CB - Cox CB - Moore FS - Dawkins SS - Champ CB
-------------Mays MLB ----- Williams MLB ----------------
------Miller R-OLB Veikune DT Ayers LDE Doom L-OLB------

Doom and Miller are lined up off the LOS as LB's, and they seal off edge runs like nothing. The weakness here obviously is up the middle, which you can put in Ronald Fields for if you need it as he is RUN STOPPING tendency hogger, but it seems Veikune gets in a decent amount so I was using him for passing plays and not worrying about shuffling for runs in this package.

played some offline and realized that I suck again, gonna have to get some practice in before we start, it's fun though, QB's are much more accurate meaning no laser passes on the run with faster than dan marino release. running on the other hand is quite a bit more accurate with actual lanes and holes to shoot for.
