I am fine if my preseason games need to be simmed as well. Practice is enough for me to get a feel for the team.

Ok, just got word that labelmeoriginal has to drop from the league. Apparently, his internet connection is bad and he can't stay connected in a game.

So, the Panthers are now open. Tell your friends.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

The new Cowboys owner joined last night, but he didn't create a coach. That one is probably my fault as I didn't specifically mention it in the PM I sent him. He's been booted and re-invited.

GibsonGamer and perdition(troy still haven't joined the league. I'm sending them final notice PM's right now, and if they're not joined by this evening, their spots will be given away to the first person who can actually join the leagues. I'm sure I'll get some sort of "I have real life yo" response, but 5 days to accept an invite is ridiculous. Anybody who intends to function in this league at that pace isn't going to last long anyway.

And as mentioned before, the Panthers are available. Tell your friends.

I feel the same way. I totally fine with simming preseason. If someone wants to play me then I can see if we can land on a time but it wont be a priority until we kick off the regular season.

Im the Texans so like I said if you want to play the preseason just feel free to PM me and Ill be glad to look into trying to get a time set up. Otherwise Ill just be ready to advance for the sake of the league. :)

N8, feel free to force advance me if you need to brother though I have set it to advance when the league is ready.

Also, I believe I play the Dolphins week one. LETS GET THE SEASON DONE.

So i realized after i started my preseason game with Desklaser that Brady was going to be my qb playing the second half of the game. I only threw 2 passes with him so it wasn't a big deal for this game but how would you like me to approach this for the rest of the preseason? I don't want to get in any trouble with anyone for playing Mallet the entire game, and being accused of trying to farm xp. But i also don't want to play Brady against everyones backups. So if you would, just let me know how you want me to go about this.


It really didn't matter to me, as I was losing by so much anyways, lol. For my side, I just let the game do whatever it did, I did not touch anything substitution wise. The game seemed to run at about 60-70% speed the whole time for me, odd. Not that it would have helped anyways, as I still can't figure out how to actually complete passes. Thanks for showing mercy at the end of the game too, lol.

Head coach Deevee Oh is ready to fill in admirably. And man, I didn't realize what a good defense this Bengals team has. Kind of makes me wish I'd taken a longer look at choosing them in the other league.

Signing on to do this now. Ya know, I really want to punch EA in the nuts for not being able to control this stuff online yet. All that bragging and boasting about connectivity, and their website is still a pile of shit.

Yeah, and if he didn't set himself to auto-pilot, I'll do it now when I switch BV.

For everybody else though, if you THINK you might not get a chance to play your preseason game (or don't mind if they're simmed), switch yourself to auto-pilot (My League -> User Teams, press "A" on yourself). This will make my job easier, and will let me know how quickly people are "done" with their weekly activities. I guess people could just check off "ready to advance", but at least this way, it would allow your opponent to easily play the CPU as well.

Seriously. I was just talking about this last night, I'm 100% sure that this is the type of thing they promised we'd be able to do. They do have stuff on there which is labeled "coming soon", which I'm pretty sure is there just to taunt us.

Yeah, "coming soon" as in "Pre-Order Madden 14 for these awesome new features!" I'm so over one company dominating every sports title. Hockey and basketball don't even have exclusive deals and somehow EA and 2K STILL managed to divide them up amongst themselves. You'd think there was some kind of collusion going on there.

Just so everyone knows, if you want to allow your opponent to play the cpu, you don't have to go through the hassell of turning auto pilot on or off. All you have to do is select simulate instead of play. This will either allow your opponent to play the cpu or you can select simulate as well and the game would be simulated. Remember though once you select simulate, you can't turn it off and then play. It would make it a lot easier for n8, to not have to switch auto on or off every time. The only time i'd turn auto-pilot on is if your going to miss a significant amount of time.

That's a good point. I forgot about that feature. Yeah, if you don't have an interest in playing your preseason game, just pick simulate. Then, your opponent can either do the same or play the game. Hopefully that will get us moving quicker the rest of the way...because we're definitely not taking this long for each week of preseason, haha.

I can do that in about an hour or two if that's ok. It's really crappy that it can't be done from the website.

In the 2nd half, he starts getting desperate and just airing the ball out. I was able to get a few user picks (which definitely are easier this year), and just kept piling on points.


It seems to be that blind Hail Mary plays almost ALWAYS result in a pick even if the ball is in a mob. In 12 they were almost never picks because the interceptor would usually be jostled by the mob and drop it.

Idk how to feel about it. I'm glad to see they're finally punishing the Hail Mary spammers, but at the same time a 5th-string corner making one-handed picks over four other heads gets pretty unbelievable pretty quick.



And anyone who has the Cardinals on their schedule can go ahead and sim.

I'd definitely like to play to a human, so if you could shoot me a time you think you can play i will see if it works and if not we can just sim it.
