Basically, wit the new DB/WR interaction, your guy has to be looking at the ball to react to it. I've had the same issue, try going for a swat instead of a pick, thats worked for me.


In Heisman i've seen CB's/Safety's trailing the WR NEVER turn their head around, and catch a ball flying over their shoulder for a clean pick. It's ridiculous.

if u use strafe will that turn him around? that nakes more sense now but its hard to adjust madden is so much easier to read and react


Strafing does work, but its tough to do if you're in a trail position on a deep ball with a CB. If you're driving on a ball for a pick with the Safety you pretty much and to be square with the ball. Or if its a jump ball you should definitely strafe. Then, only press Y, you can't hold the strafe or anything else, the guy won't react if you do.

I agree with that division, at least I know if one of us wins it we'd beat the hell out of each other to get there.

And Madden isn't out until the 28th. I'm up for whatever the commissioners decide.

u know what else i was thinking... another way to pick teams fairly if we do it... randomize the order but once we get our 32 users try to break it off as the 8 users with the worst records get first pick but each have to pick out of a different division.. then the next 8 randomize pick all different divisions and so forth till all the teams are filled.. just a thought

One funny thing about a team draft is that you not only get to pick your team. But with later picks you will also be choosing your most frequent opponents, based on who is in which division.

I'm finalizing the lottery date with uber and fero, but I suggested we do it next Monday (the 13th). This is the situation right now:

CAG Username (qualification criteria)
1. bvharris (1,3,4) - Checked in
2. ubernes (1,4) - Checked in
3. siradam134 (1,3,4) - Checked in
4. BigAT (2,4)
5. Mr Grand Cru (2,4) - Checked in
6. Doomtime (2,4) - Checked in
7. augmog (2,3,4) - Checked in
8. sprice8688 (2,3,4) - Checked in
9. MasterAwesome (3,4) - Checked in
10. itlnstln (3,4)
11. RamesuThe1 (3,4) - Checked in
12. Matt Young (3,4) - Checked in
13. Tanabeo (3,4) - Checked in
14. Superstar (3,4) - Checked in
15. LVPatriots (3) - Checked in
16. staticz (3) - Checked in
17. PacerPerspect (4) - Checked in
18. Deuce20602 (4) - Waiting List
18. Zurezo (4) - Checked in
19. Appleinthetree (4) - Checked in
20. Darth0ftheDead (4) - Checked in
21. pitfallharry219 (4) - Checked in

Deuce is not taking his spot, but pitfallharry does get an auto spot. BigAT and itlnstln are the only two who haven't checked in, but I expect they'll both be playing.

Lottery:
JoelyPoley - 1
theredworm - 3
og whitewidow - 5
VW Matsui - 1
bseti50 - 5
dvo21 - 5
neworlbush25 - 3
man2008 - 3
GPNinja - 5
Blade3D - 3
laboyz - 1

We have exactly 11 people in the lottery right now, so if nobody else signs up between today and when we do the lottry, we wouldn't need to do it at all (not that I expect that). Most of you guys should be in though.

As for team selection, we'll handle that after the spots are allocated.

The complete list of QB ratings has been released FYI: http://www.easports....n-madden-nfl-13

There's a link in there that'll open up an excel spreadsheet with every attribute. It's beyond retarded that they give Cam Newton a 75 deep ball accuracy...anyone who watched the Panthers last year knows that the deep ball is Cam's bread and butter! But he's pretty dominant everywhere else, so I guess they just had to nerf him somewhere so he wouldn't be like a 95 OVR.

pitfallharry posted in the other league thread that he was giving up his spot here. You might want to check with him to see if anything's changed.

88 deep throw accuracy and 95 throw power????

http://www.operation...13-other-games/


So still not other perks other than access to the game 3 days early and a discount to unnecessary DLC? Well played EA.

What do they mean by access to those packs? Meaning people have the ability to buy them 3 days early or they get them for 3 days and then have them taken away when it releases?

I took it as free packs...which almost makes it worth it. I got addicted to MUT last year and actually bought packs (for shame).

Same here. I bought a legend pack that included no legends. At least if I had gotten early access to the game, I might have felt like less of an idiot, lol. Honestly, if you're a fan of Ultimate Team in at least 2 of the games, this is probably worth considering. Between Madden and NHL, I'm actually thinking about it. Getting the games 3 days early would just be a bonus.

From what I understand it should already be done for us so we won't have to pause the draft this year.

Well if that's the case then it may very well be worth it. That mode really took off in popularity last year.
