If anybody would be up for playing any pickup games before the league starts, and wouldn't mind possibly giving me any pointers, please send a friend request to me (XBL: DeskLaser), and let's set up some games. Whenever I try to play someone random online, they always cheese to hell. Maybe it's just me, but I was not aware that Aaron Rodgers scrambles all over the field.

For the Free Agency thing, it doesn't matter to me any way it happens, since I don't know enough about what's going on to really know what to do for trades and FA, etc, anyways.


I'm always open to scrimmaging when I have time. And I definitely don't mind sharing tips.

Since it's my first year doing anything like this, I see all FA talk and the trade talk etc, for Season 1 if I more or less want to go out and just play as THE Denver Bronocos. The team I watch Sunday to Sunday, is that going to get me clobbered any worse than being a complete beginner?


I don't think it'll really hurt you. Some people are just very, very into rearranging their team and obtaining new players. Personally, I think it'll be a bit amusing when the salary cap really starts to take hold and people see that they have no money at all, lol.

hey N8 not sure if u have ran into this but sometimes when u progress a player even when hes doing really good and earns a ton of xp his overall still seems to go down whats with that

i also noticed that progression even on every four weeks if u dont progress then u can wait to progress whenever u want but once u have u have to wait 4 weeks that hows it working for me atleast has anyone else noticed?


Yeah, as much as EA did for the basic gameplay, this game has a lot of bugs that need to be worked out. All the way down to fundamental football concepts. The game is a bit hit or miss when you dig below the surface.

As for XP, that sort of makes sense. It's not like you only earn it every 4 weeks. You can just only apply it every 4 weeks. So, whenever you do apply it, you have to wait 4 more weeks before you can do it again. I still think it's better than once a year...which would probably just feel like the old "potential" system. And every week just seems like it would be too tedious considering the progression that you add from one week is going to be incredibly small, and could just be undone by the next week's performance anyway.

correction 4 spots the browns will be the last team to fill i bet


That makes me wonder what happened to Ultimate Matt X. I was surprised to not see him in either Madden league this year.

Hey guys,

I was in the 'main' CAG Madden league for Madden '11, and also league 2. Bills in league 1 (was mediocre all 3 seasons) and Vikings in league 2 (playoff appearance, lost in divisionals in only season).

My brother picked up Madden '13 and I thought I'd see about joining this league. Most of the teams I'd like are gone, but I'd jump on the Seahawks if no one has them yet. My availability varies greatly, but I can usually find time after 4PM on weekdays, and in the afternoons or nights on weekends (again, varies, but I can usually work it out with my opponent).

Let me know, thanks!

Anyone love how a company like ea, still has shitty servers year after year.
Love how they take co-op franchise offline. so me and my brother buy seperate games and play on seperate televisions in seperate rooms. Guess what, now when the servers are messed we can't play together either. Great job each. Rant over.

Thanks! I'm really excited to join this league. Its the main reason I decided to pick up Madden this year. It'll be good to kick back and have fun instead of having to worry about cheesers doing there douchebag antics.

When are you guys planning to start this league up? I'm floating around the idea of signing up (if I still can), my schedule is nuts through October but I think I could find time to play a couple games a week (which would be enough I think???). If it's too late no big deal but I just got this game and have no leagues lined up and it seems with the whole CC thing this year it's kind of the way the game's meant to be played.

I tried to send everyone a friend request.. feel free to shoot me an invite if you would like to go head to head with some fresh meat.

Anyway, I just wrapped up my first online match. Steelers (me) vs. 49ers. I lost 10-28, but feel that I got really screwed. First of all, the lag in this game is pretty unacceptable. It felt as though the game was locked at 10 frames per second from start to finish. I remember the game being just as laggy back in Madden 10. How is this glaring issue not fixed yet!?

I stopped my opponent's offense pretty well up until the fourth quarter when he threw 3 deep posts, each of which went for touchdowns. What really irritates me is that, in each instance, I was running appropriate pass defense and had three defenders covering my opponent's receiver; however, I could never adjust to the lag to make an effective play on the ball. It was so incredibly frustrating.

Overall though neither of us cheesed the system (e.g., no fake punts, onside kickoffs, etc.), so that was good, and I identified two areas of my game that are extremely lacking: passing and defending the deep ball. If you guys have any recommendations for improving these areas, I'm all ears!

Did you hold y for the new ball hawk auto assist? It really helps when defending the deep stuff. You'll notice against some of the better defensive players, this game can become a defense interceptionfest.

I really need to learn to play better, anyone have any tips to play better defense? I'm not too good at reading the offense or even selecting my defensive play. I seem to get thrown all over, and they break some big runs.

Thanks for the Ball Hawk tip, do I have to be controlling the defender or can I just hold Y after the pass?

I reiterate after October my schedule should free up quite a bit but until then I will be super busy with work. I will do my best to get the games done in a timely fashion.

Yeah, glad to have both of you join! Welcome aboard! We won't be starting at least until the first patch comes out (which will hopefully fix some of the gameplay issues people are experiencing). The ETA on that is 9/11.

Only two spots left! Cardinals and Browns.

Also, just wanted to let everybody know I've got a pretty busy weekend coming up. I've got family coming into town tomorrow, so I probably won't be around except in the late evenings for the next several days. Other than general questions and the possibility of filling those last two spots, hopefully there won't be too many league issues...but I'll answer any questions whenever I get a chance.

Thats a good idea not to start until a patch comes out. A lot of bugs and glitches have been discovered over on Operation Sports, it's a little disheartening tbh.

Also this may be a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyways, I can go ahead and start a "franchise" if I want to without it interfering with this league right? I mean on this year's game you can be in a league like this one and then still have your own CC going? I just want to make sure before I think about starting my personal CC.
