Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

I also want to keep it as even as possible as far as the conferences go. I thought it worked out great this year with how both champioship games came down to actual players going at it, rather than someone playing the COMP for the right to go to the SB. Perhaps we'll designate picks as AFC or NFC and alternate down the line.

My suggestions:

- Reverse draft order is fine.

- I first thought limiting everyone to teams 80 and lower would keep things closer for the "rookies". But now I think it might be the opposite. Think of it this way - if you were to play someone really bad at Madden would they have a better chance with a Jax vs. Houston or with a Pitt vs. NEng. I'd say the latter. Maybe new guys can pick over 80 and the returning guys under 80? Matt can decide, anything is fine with me.

- Same amount of teams in each conference.

- I still say we force teams into certain divisions, so we can all be guaranteed at least a few head-to-head games. So with 8 teams we'd put 4 in each conference with division pairs. So maybe 2 guys get the NFC North, 2 guys get NFC South, 2 guys in AFC East, and 2 guys in AFC West (for example).

- Play at least 2 games per week. I think this was key in keeping the interest level up. Matt did a great job advancing the weeks and keeping us on the ball.

- Maybe a prize to the winner? I think any cash prize is a bad idea cuz you dont want guys getting too serious, but maybe a champion t-shirt or hat or something. Id gladly donate a few bucks towards the madden prize fund.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

I was thinking the top 4 teams have to take a team 80 or under, well top 4 less the SB winner. SB winner keeps his team to try to repeat. I'll put a rules proposal together and post it, if anyone has any serious issues with it we can of course address it. Thanks for the feedback so far and if anyone has anything else to add feel free.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

Alright here's what I've drawn up so far:

Warpath Madden League

Game settings
Difficulty: All-Pro
Quarter length: 7 minutes
Injuries: On
Fatigue: On

Game rules
- There will generally be 3-4 days to play your game, with the goal of the league playing at least 2 games per week.

- Simulated games should not exceed 3 total games per season per player. Any player who exceeds the 3 game limit will be booted from the league.

- When there is a player head to head matchup, both parties must do their best to work out a time to play the game. If the weekly deadline for the game passes a brief 1 day extension may be granted on a case by case basis. Otherwise the game will be simulated.

- Games started per week should not exceed 1. It is understood that technical issues arise at times and as such this will be monitored on a case by case basis. If you do need to start a game again for any reason, please report your reason on the forum.

- 4th down: You may go for it on 4th down under the following conditions:

*You are past your own 40 yard line with 1 yard or less to go.
*Past the 50 yard line regardless of distance.
*Trailing in the 3rd quarter by more than 14.
*IN THE 4TH QUARTER YOU MAY GO FOR IT AT ANY TIME REGARDLESS OF FIELD POSITION, DISTANCE, OR POINTS BEHIND.

- Onside kicks are only allowed if trailing in the 4th quarter.

- On defense you may not move players in to unrealistic positions (D-lineman off the LOS, out of the screen, etc). Also, do not manually move multiple players in order to setup unrealistic "nano" blitzes. All shifts/stunts/coverage audiles built into the game are allowed.

Team draft
- Order is based on previous season winning %, worst to first. Super Bowl winner drafts last, Super Bowl loser drafts next to last. Tie breakers are decided by division record, then conference record. Any new players will be placed in the middle rounds to be determined by the total number of players.

- Playoff teams are then ordered by how they performed in the playoffs. The conference championship losers receive the third and fourth to last selections. Next are the teams who lost in the divisional round, followed by the teams who lost in the wild card round. Each team is ordered within this primary order by their regular-season record.

- The top 4 teams as determined by their order of finish in the playoffs will be required to select a new team with an overall team rating of 80 or below. The Super Bowl winner has the option to keep his team for one additional season to defend his title. If the Super Bowl winner elects to give up his team, he must select a new team with an overall rating of 80 or below. A back to back Super Bowl winner will be required to give up his team and select a new one with an overall team rating of 80 or below.

- In order to keep an even amount of players in each conference, depending on the first choice in the draft, the next player will then have to choose from the opposite conference and the picks will alternate AFC/NFC on down the line.

I said I would let you chose, and that's fair enough on my part, I will not disagree with that, how about just using the orginal roster's like they do in Madden Tourney's no updated one's just the orginal madden roster, like I said it makes everything more balance, guys won't be picking just on updates, they be getting the week 1 orginal roster's. Matty does' that mean since I finish in the bottom of the league, due to my unfortunate situation, I get to pick a team with rating of 80 and above?

Hey Buddy just a suggestion, you can go to your local BB and rent it, and get the code off the back of the guide, that usually on the inside of the dispaly box, or just ask them if you can have a guide book in with your rental. if you did keep it, they will only charge you the value of it right now, so if it's selling for 35 used in the store, that's all they will charge you.

Oh yeah welcome to the Madden league!

How do I get to choose which roster to use?

Why does it matter if we use the latest update vs. the original?

I like everything matty, EXCEPT, 4th down plays, anything 4 and 2 and less should be able to go for it, I dont wanna punt on a 4th and 1 or 4th and inches, that should be determine by the player, because it's puts a high limit on, when you will need to punt and to many restrictions', also, moving players out of position, well, I don't know about that one either, not to call out Monkfan, but I thought he had a great stragety by putting orakpo on the DL and freelancing him around, even a player like dwight freeny. Idk who used nano's, but I dont think anyone did in the league this year, nano's are very easy to counter, but I think for the most part everyone played fair and a straight game. I just think with to many rules, it's put a restriction on what you can do, plus in the heat of the moment, you 4th and 5 just on the skirt of the 50, depending on how i've been moving the ball, I may wanna take that chance, but thats just me. The great thing about winning the Superbowl, is repeating, and I think that person should be able to keep repeating until someone knock them off, even if it mean's they change teams, but with a equal rating.....

It doesn't Matty, I just thought, you have orginal, less people would not be so ampt to dip into free agency to fill alot of needs, with orginals, alot of the roster is filled, even with 3rd and 4th stringers, and the way you do it, is go into your memory, erase the downloaded roster and online roster, go into league with orginal rosters, or u can use the one, you used last time.

These rules all look good to me. But can we change *You are past your own 40 yard line with 1 yard or less to go.* to *You are past your own 40 yard line with 3 yards or less to go.*

I end up trying at least a couple 4th downs every game, but they would all adhere to your rules above (which are good). The only one is the first one. If I'm on my own 45, 4th and 3 or less I will usually go for it.

It's not to be a cheapskate but it's more my style of play. Often if Im 3rd and 10 Ill purposely try to complete like an 8 yard pass, cuz Im confident I can get the last 2 yards on 4th.

Anyways no big deal either way, wont have a big affect on my game.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

I'm all for changing up the 4th down stuff, I just think something should be in place to help keep things a little more realistic.

I like having specific rules in place but anything that alters the legal gameplay of any player shouldn't be considered.

Going for it on 4th down is the weakest thing you can do, I agree, but unfortunately it's something you just can't crack down on. Any person who does so is just severely handicapping their team so that is punishment enough.

If it's legal on the field then it shouldn't have to be penalized outside of the rules of the game.

...that's my contention.
