The thing about that is, once a spot opens in the other league, they will likely end up ghosting us in the process. So it's almost a temporary patch for the problem.


Maybe. Maybe not. By that same token, once some of the new players in the other league take some insane beatings from the top players over there, they may want to get the hell out and play in a league where they can compete. I could be wrong and maybe the new guys are really good too, but I don't know how anybody could tolerate going 3-13 season after season. That just doesn't sound like much fun to me.

Awesome! Glad to have you back, man! Though, you're going to have to remind me what your Gamertag is. I can't remember if it's the same as your CAG name or not.

quick question
whats happens if real life nfl trades are put into the game.
as in what if the rams redskins trade is put in the game so that the rams have the redskins draft picks. will we leave it as is then.
and what will we do if there is an on/off switch that u can either turn off the real life nfl trades or leave them on what would we do then?

only asking becuz i remember reading that the EA sports planned on honoring real life trades i nthe game such as that trade not sure if it was true or not but just trying to figure out what we would do in that case. i dont remember where i read it or i post the the link

also read that if our league isnt full that the computer teams will offer trades to other computer teams and even us. this game is going to be insane how great its going to be

If they're built into the game, and there's no option to turn them off, then I guess we just have to deal with it. If there is an option to not honor them though, I'd prefer that. Reason being, the teams are the teams, and people choose their team knowing what players they have.

It's not exactly fair to handicap one owner in the ability to build his team because in real life, the GM didn't care about mortgaging the next several drafts. And conversely, it's not really fair for somebody to just have more draft picks through no doing of their own. To me, it makes more sense to just start everybody out with a clean slate and say "build your team".

Oh, and if the league isn't full, yeah...we'll just let the CPU handle itself this year. I'd most likely want to bump the difficulty up to All-Madden, just to make the CPU games a little more relevant, but yeah...with them functioning in a very "human" like manner (assuming EA doesn't have them doing incredibly stupid things), hopefully it won't be as much of a bother if we have any empty teams.

And in case anyone is wondering, yes...the salary cap will be on, and it will be how teams are kept in check in terms of trades, free agent signings, etc.

well i guess we have to wait and see. but i kinda like the idea of real life trades becuz of the fact that is going to be so real with contracts salary caps. but i do get where ur coming from with the clean slate.

all madden sounds like field goals are gonig to be ruff this year. lol

Don't really know yet. We'll probably give it another week or so.

One other thing I wanted to touch on, having played the demo now, I feel like I'm still leaning toward having the difficulty set at All-Madden. Yes, there are some things the CPU does that I feel are cheap, or bounces they get simply because the difficulty is higher. But at the same time, I don't want us having incredibly stupid AI because we're playing on a lower difficulty. I know the other league was talking about sticking with All-Pro, but personally, I guess I want to see the game performing at its top level. Then, any shortcomings it has are just "how EA made it" and not because of any option we're not utilizing...if that makes sense.

well i tried both levels today in two games each. tried some things to test both AI's and well i found AM to be very cheap compared to AP. i think AP is better also for people playing in both leagues considering we might have alot of guys doing both and with the kicking being insane as always in AM people that play in the other league this one will have to adjust all the time to the kicks speeds. im starting to recruit hardcore for this league im glad i could get ahold of aftershock and get him in here i think i can get atleast 2 or 3 more people just give me a fews days and let me see what i can do

Well, I will say, if this dropped pass bullshit is a result of All-Madden, I might change my mind (I've only played one game on All-Pro and like 4-5 on All-Madden). I just went 8-19 with Flynn with 4 drops. 20% of your pass attempts shouldn't be dropped (and these were wide open, all by himself, receiver looking right at the ball drops). That's ridiculous. As much as I want more intelligent AI, if this is EA's answer to "higher difficulty", I'm not impressed.

EDIT - It appears drops aren't an All-Madden thing. Just played an All-Pro game, and was 13 of 25 with Eli with 5 drops...20% holding true. I get that some of it is timing, and the new "receiver must be paying attention" thing. But it's not a drop unless it hits them in the hands...so I'm not really sure what to make of this. Seems a bit excessive.

Wow, looks like real life trades are built into the game. I've gotta say, if EA actually understood how all of the draft day trades are supposed to work and how to implement them, more power to them. They're really pushing the envelope this year.

The Rams are his favorite team. Pretty sure he never uses anybody else. I haven't seen him around CAG since the JV League ended though, so I have no idea if he's getting Madden at launch or not.

im hoping that we can figure out a way to land atleast 10 more people for this league before the start. would be worried about going in with a low amount and trying to pull people in the league half way through no telling how much movements the cpu will make.

also curious to know will we be aloud to make trade offers to the cpu since they have a new system made where the cpu is alot smart than before?
im just really glad i could get aftershock is back brings a great player to the league.

n8 did u contact everyone on the offical league waiting list if not i could try to

Yeah, counting everybody from the "pending availability" list, we've got 11 people right now (though I did talk to someone today about possibly joining). Really, it would be nice if we had at least 20...but we'll see how it goes.

As for CPU trade offers, as long as it's not incredibly broken (ie. "Kevin Kolb for Drew Brees? SURE!!!", I'd have no problem with it. Honestly, having the salary cap in place SHOULD prevent most unrealistic trades. People are going to really have to look and see what players are even moveable.

And yeah, I PM'd everybody on their waiting list. Cool_iAM was the only one to respond.

I'm still down to play...


Yep, you're on the "pending availability" list. The only "condition" you guys will have is just not getting to pick your team until the people only playing in this league have picked theirs. That's part of the reason I'm waiting a bit before we pick teams. Just want to make sure that all the people who plan on getting this game get a chance to sign up.

well i read that the computer acutally will turn down trades they dont like or dont work for there system so it should be quite interesting i already know i have a few players from a few teams that i have my eye on trying to make trades for whether its computer or human. and now that project is way different i dont really mind trading players that have high dollar contracts and skills away since u can pretty much build a player to ur style of play pretty well.
