I strongly considered the suggestion offered by Crazy Canuck, that we should exclude the Eagles, Vikes, Falcons and Pats. I'm sick of playing against all those teams. But I feel like if someone thinks they need to use one of those teams to be competitive, then they're probably not much of a gamer anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Pick whoever you want, as long as it's not a team that someone's already picked.

Krills missed the window.

Sactre77, you're up!

You've got until 4:30 am tomorrow to pick your team. Please post your selection here.

Krills and kingerock, you can still pick your teams at any time.

If anyone else wants to join the league, you're more than welcome.

We seem to be having a hard time getting folks to follow through here.

If you're interested in joining, just post your XBox Live gamertag here.

FRPLG, you're up!

Please sign-in to the league page on EASports.com to make your team selections official and get the season underway:

might we want to send some PMs to the others to let them know this is happening? It has been a while since we started this discussion and I am guessing some of them have forgotten and not checked the thread in weeks.

Yeah, FRPLG, I've been PM'ing everybody since the team selections started, reminding them to make their picks, but for some reason, it hasn't helped. I also posted a reminder in the Locker Room, hoping folks would see it there, so I don't know why we've had such a poor response.

I'll say it again, if you're interested in joining the league, please reply to this thread with your gamertag, so I can put you on the league invite list.

If you already gave me your gamertag, go to the league page and select your team:

http://www.easports.com/games/madden...eagueid=223891

I'll post another reminder in the Locker Room, and PM the folks who haven't shown up again.

Those of you who have already signed in to the league page (DrDrayne, Frplg, sactre77), I went ahead and created a 4-man league, so we can get started.

Sign-in to the 4-man league here:

Play Ball!

The 4-man league is full, and we're ready to start the regular season.

Let the inaugural season of the Warpath XBox Madden League begin!

http://www.easports.com/games/madden...eagueid=228879

1st round matchups:

Bengals (Crazy Canuck) vs. Titans (aehs77)
Lions (joecrisp) vs. Saints (FRPLG)

Rounds last 72 hours, so you should have until 9:00 AM Wednesday morning to complete your first-round matchups.

There are 15 rounds in all, so we should all play each other 5 times.

The two teams with the best overall record advance to the championship game.

Good Luck! (You'll need it!:thumb: )

Hope you guys are practiced up and ready!




To play your league matchup, schedule a time to play with your opponent. At the appointed time, start up Madden Live, go to Game Modes-->Online Events-->My Events-->TheWarpath.Season. Enter the league room from there and challenge your opponent.
In order for the game to count for the league standings, you must issue the challenge from the league room on Madden Live.

The best way to set up a time is through easports.com's challenge system. If you and your prospective opponent have both setup your calendars on your member profiles, you can simply click on your opponent's name from one of the league webpages, and it will take you to their profile page. On that page, there is a 'Challenge User' button, that will allow you to setup a time based on the playing schedules that you've both slotted on your calendars.

I strongly recommend that everyone use this feature, since it makes it much easier to find a time to play your league games.

Otherwise, you're probably best off using the private messaging service on the Warpath to contact your opponent and set up a time that way.
