I've been contemplating the season ticket for years, but never really budged and got it. No other EA games really entice me, sports wise. But collectors edition comes with the NFL Sunday Ticket thru Directv right?

correct can be used on pc,tablets and smart phones, im getting it for sunday ticket plus the great value in u.t and well seeing i have been madden fan since the start in early 90's it's a must for me on the 25th anv to have the special edition

Onside Kicks- You can onside kick in the second half of the game if you are down by more than 17 points. You can kick an onside kick in the fourth quarter if you are losing by any amount.

 

Squib Kicks- You can squib kick at anytime, but if a squib kick is recovered without the receiving team getting possession of the ball, then you are to punt the ball immediately.

 

Hurry Up Offense-(this is one that is up in the air for discussion)- Hurry up can be used in obvious comeback situations and during any 2 minute offensive situation. You can also use hurry up during any point during the game, you just can not use it on consecutive plays and you have to wait until the play clock is down to at least 25 seconds before you can snap.

 

QB Swap- If you switch QB's in the middle of the game, just send your opponent a message that says QB. You do not have to send a message to your opponent  if you are running a wildcat formation(if the game handles wildcat as it did in Madden 2013)

 

Two Point Conversion- You are allowed to go for a two point conversion in situations that make sense. If you can't justify it, then just don't do it.

 

Fourth Down- You can go for it in the following situations.
Fourth and 3 and less- You can go for it as long as you are past midfield.
Down by 17 or more- You can go for it at any point in the second half.
Down by 9-16 Points- You can go for it at any point beyond 1:00 left in the 3rd quarter.
Down by 8 Points- You can go for it at any point in the fourth quarter
The only other time you can go for it is if you are between the 35-45 yard line and your are out of your kickers range
.

 

Gameplay Styles- Obviously, no nano blitz or cheap tactics like sending everyone deep and then running with the qb. 5 wide QB runs(unless a designed play) and hb streaks directly in the middle of the field from the backfield, if abused, will be considered cheese as well.

 

Showboating- From the Demo, it doesn't seem like diving into the end zone is that big of a deal anymore, but stick away from showboating if your playing against someone you don't know personally.

 

Player Editing/Position SwapsNo turning WR's into TE's. No playing HB's with over 85 speed at FB. To switch a player to QB, he has to have some history as a QB. No turning speed receivers with 20 throw power/accuracy into a read option QB. 

 

Running Up the Score- When you have a sufficient lead, start running clock. Doesn't mean that you have to stop passing, just stick to short passes and keeping the clock running. If your down a lot and want the game to end, then start running clock yourself. No sympathy will be given you keep throwing the ball up and end up having interception after interception returned on you.

 

Quitting- No rage quitting. Rage quitting will result in a strike against you.

 

Punishment- 1st Strike- Warning, 2nd Strike- 1 Game Suspension/additional warning depending on the infraction, 3rd Strike- 3 Game Suspension. If you go beyond that, then your really don't have a place in the league.

 

Disconnects- If a game is disconnected and the two parties can not come to an agreement to replay the game, then post in the thread the score and situation of the game. We'll discuss it and then either let one person play the cpu or have the game be replayed.

 

Rules can always be found on the Original Post. Everything is also up for discussion. If you have an opinion about a specific rule, then just post about it and we'll discuss it.

Ravens are being reserved for someone right now. Just waiting to hear back from him.

Update # 1- We'll most likely be doing uploaded draft classes. I'll be testing them out during the early release.

Update # 2- I'll be starting a groupme chat this weekend for anyone interested. It makes it a little easier to contact each other.

Update # 3- I've been contemplating starting the default rosters. It gives everyone the ability to make their own training camp cuts from the 90 man roster. Opinions on whether to do updated or default rosters? EDIT: NVM, I saw a list of the available free agents and there are just too many that are on an actual team. Updated rosters it will be.

Update # 4- I'll be doing a test franchise during the early release, if your interested in participating and are getting the early release, just let me know.

 

Updates to the Rules:

 

Late- If you schedule a game and won't be able to make that time, attempt to contact your opponent and update them. There's nothing worse than sitting around waiting for another player. I will give a half an hour window for you to update your opponent. If no attempt to contact your opponent during that half an hour is made, then the person that showed up will be allowed to play the CPU.

 

Running up the score- Against the CPU: When playing the CPU, either get a lead and sit on it or take advantage of the Supersim feature. Hopefully the difficulty sorts this out, but I don't want to see 700 yards passing against the CPU with 8 touchdowns.

 

The late rule, I honestly feel like i'm lenient by allowing a half an hour, so at least keep your opponent updated. The running up the score will most likely be more defined after I've had an opportunity to play the actual game.

So far, I'm definitely thinking all madden will be the way to go. Especially, since there will be CPU games. Firing up a franchise soon. If anyone has any questions, let me know.

You can now change playbooks in connected careers. No more having to create a new coach.

A lot less options for practice and they all give the same XP.

Defensive assignments? I'm going to guess no.

In regards to relocating, it still will be allowed, but there will be stipulations. First, not everyone can qualify. Your stadium has to meet the requirements and has to be crappy enough to justify the move. Second, you have to get commissioner approval before setting up to relocate. This can be done at any point during the preseason and the relocation occurs during the next off season. Lastly, there will only be a restriction on what jerseys you can pick. This is to stop everyone from ending up with the all black "modern" option(every city I've relocated to so far, 3 teams, have had the same "modern jersey"). Team name, stadium and location are all up to the user though.

Lastly for now, the most addicting part of Owner mode for me has been setting jersey prices. It appears that your 5 highest "personality" rated players have individual jerseys that you can set the prices for and it has been fun messing with them to try and get a top 10 seller. Plus who doesn't enjoy saying Fuck to the NFL and only charging 1 dollar for a hot dog. Also, beer apparently is not sold to virtual crowds.

Terrible. Kind of pointless for EA to focus on hotdog prices when you don't even have full coaching options. With the direction my gaming preferences have been going lately, I could see this being my last year with the game for awhile. They seriously need to get their heads out of their asses.

I'll be checking out the rosters available in the hour or so, so I should have a decision then.

Sweet, can't wait to get started!

 

On a side note, the game plays well so far. I love the new mechanics with the juking, definitely will make it fun with Lesean McCoy ;)
