Looking over everything throughout the weekend, with the salary cap and stuff like that even if we honor a trade here the game may not honor it and another thing to consider is that certain free agents may cost too much for certain teams to pick up, which I think all these options are cool and I think we need to honor the trades as they have been made I mean people still have players from the trades and I actually think I lost my first round pick for the upcoming draft so I wouldn't say that I am bias lol.

This contract stuff is very in depth which I may have to set my team on auto if it seems overwhelming , on another note I am happy there is a preseason, I like that.

Will the CPU actually block trades between two human players? I thought that as long as neither team exceeded the cap, they'd allow them through.

Can someone test that out?

A few known issues from the OS forums.

Man Coverage bug that triggers when you control someone on the D line. I knew something was going on there.

http://www.operation...ideo-proof.html

Fatigue issues, where backups may never come in even with auto-substitution on.

Players who are seriously injured still end up playing the next week.

Scheme settings are broken and not saving for some players.

Can't permanently disable gameflow.

Multiple players with the same number.

2 minute AI offense is still terrible.

Commentating will sometimes disappear for the whole game (might be a good thing)

...and that's why you always wait for the first patch.

Based on the video I saw, I'd say we definitely won't be starting until that's patched.

Yeah I agree. First patch is set for 9/11 but they aren't saying what will be patched.

You'd think this would be pretty hard to miss, but I never want to assume anything when it comes to Madden patches.

In the meantime, now that the game is out/almost out, if you guys still want to set up a pre-season tourney, go for it. I leave for vacation Wednesday morning, but I'm hoping I can get in a couple of scrims tomorrow night.

"Now in a series of tweets Connected Careers designer Josh Looman has laid out another important element to going “Online” with the mode. Tuning updates will apply to them – with the changes being reflected immediately upon a server refresh – while “Offline” careers will be stuck waiting for patches. Areas cited as being tune-able include the amount of XP coaches and players earn as well as the amount of scouting credits received weekly."

Not having to wait for patches would be great if they can pull it off.

Not tune-able: The AI corners being able to stay on their men. :D

That's good news though. Anyone who wants to play around with some test franchises before we get started and try to figure out what a good balance might be for things like XP/scouting is welcome to do so and report back.

Well, if Madden's going with tuner sets, get ready for the game to be unstable as hell for the first 2-3 months. The NHL series has used these for awhile, and one week, it'll be impossible to score, the next week, players will just stand around doing nothing. Basically any time the EA message boards go crazy, the entire game could change (I think NHL 11 had 7 or 8 tuner sets before they finally stopped tinkering with it). It definitely gives them more flexibility, but it also makes it that much easier to ruin the game. By the time the dust settles, sometimes you end up with a game that plays nothing like it did at launch. I guess that can be good or bad depending on your perspective.

Conversely they only released two for NCAA 12 and everyone complained.

Personally I think we should come up with a slider set and ignore the tuners.

That's the tentative plan, though obviously it will take some tweaking, especially early. After the initial adjustment period though, I think we might try to make minor adjustments each offseason.

Maybe we'll have a "Slider Committee" with the commissioners and a few league members in which we decide what the settings should be and also eat tiny hamburgers. :D

Sliders are a mess right now as well. Every time I tinkered with them in the demo, the difficulty would change to rookie. So you'd have to manually go in and change it back to All-Madden. It no longer felt like All-madden though, even after messing with one slider.



Also keep in mind the playoff overtime rules are now part of the regular season. The first team with the ball can no longer win by a field goal.

Completely forgot about that until I read it this morning.

Mine also shipped yesterday and is in my town. I wish I could just go pick it up from somewhere.

Assuming you're saying we should leave it as-is in the game, I agree. Though I'm not sure you're the most objective voice since you stand to gain the most from it. ;)

Well I've given up on the Chiefs, yes i know it is still the preseason. Hopefully I can get them to the playoffs in Madden. A few fun facts -

1. HC/DC and OC are all Browns castoffs
2. Backup QB - Browns castoff
3. Second RB - Browns castoff
4. Starting QB - never played a single down in college
5. Just got done watching Sportscenter Top 10 Preseason plays. Chiefs defense (the supposed bright spot) got owned on three plays. John Andersen refers to them as the chefs.

I haven't been in a CAG league in a while but Cru and Neworl can vouch for the ass kicking! :lol:

and of course I'm just getting everyone riled up because every league needs a loud mouthed trash talker who isn't very good at the game :)
