Of course that had to be the last post on the page, lol. So, yeah...already posting again for the new page and to make sure everyone sees it.

 

Here are the groups for free agency. For anyone who hasn't done this before, each team is allowed to sign ONE free agent. You MUST post in the thread who you are signing before doing so in game. Posting your pick in here is what "claims" the free agent (even if you're not available to load up the game to sign him right away). 

 

You also do not have to follow the order listed in the groups. Once it is your group's turn to pick, anybody within that group may make their selection.

 

Most of our rosters SHOULD be at 53 players (though I think a couple people might have been overzealous and cut too many...so make sure to count your players again). If you have 53 players, you'll need to cut someone to pick up a free agent. So, structure your post in the following format:

 

Team: Your Team

Player Added: Full Name, Position

Player Dropped: Full Name, Position

 

We have 16 members, so we'll do 3 groups.

 

Group 1 (May choose one free agent starting now)

1. Tennessee Titans

2. Denver Broncos - Samson Satele, C

3. Cleveland Browns - Jermichael Finley, TE

4. Miami Dolphins - Rashean Mathis, CB

5. Pittsburgh Steelers

 

Group 2 (May choose one free agent starting 9/29 @ 7AM ET)

6. Seattle Seahawks

7. Jacksonville Jaguars - Lance Briggs, ROLB

8. Philadelphia Eagles

9. Indianapolis Colts

10. Baltimore Ravens - Trent Richardson, RB

 

Group 3 (May choose one free agent starting 9/30 @ 7AM ET)

11. Green Bay Packers

12. Oakland Raiders

13. Houston Texans

14. Minnesota Vikings - Antone Smith, RB

15. New England Patriots - Chris Johnson, RB

16. Dallas Cowboys

Both times you posted the free agency order, it showed up on the same page for me (page 5).

I'm sure it's different on mobile...and you can adjust the number of posts per page anyway. But on PC...and left at the old school CAG default number of posts per page (30), it was the last post on page 8.

 

It's hard to have consistency with so many different formats, but I'm just going with that in an effort to keep everyone informed.

This game is...maddening...(oh boy.. i didnt just do that..)

 

Was Leading 20-9 Over the Jets (my 2nd attempt).....and the game started getting wonky. Playing Prevent Defense in the 4th with 9 Seconds remaining, i started noticing players were missing. 

 

You'll notice the RG and my LE are Missing. I'm not sure if they're "really" on the field or not...as i couldn't manually switch to the LE.....

(see Attached picture)

Finished the game..Quit out to menu, and the game didn't count.

 

Bollocks, i tell you!

Oakland in Chicago this week and in what seems to be a recurring theme for this Madden had to play 3 times
Game1 27-13 Raiders
Game2 20-17 Raiders
Game3 28-10 Raiders
Hopefully this last one saves cause the way this Madden plays I know a 4th game would probably be a lost Smh lol

Good fucking God, Madden. All right, I might be CPU'ing any time I'm matched up with a top team this season. Denver doesn't need any fucking help game. Jesus fucking Christ, I don't think one bounce went my way. Amazing that Osweiler can't throw an INT though. What fucking power up was that?

 

Minnesota - 4 pass deflections, 0 INTs, 3 penalties - 20 yards (1 defensive holding, 1 offensive holding, and I don't remember the other one...but they were all things I had no control over)

 

Denver - 1 pass deflection, 3 INTs, 0 penalties - 0 yards

 

And Kaster hitstick'd my biggest weapon into the hospital. First human game of the season... Great...

 

I'm ready for a break already, lol. Why do I do this?

Sorry about that run at the end, Nate. Couldn't find the kneel down play. Gg though. I definitely appeased the madden gods, 2 or 3 major breaks on dropped picks. I was ready to lose it when Bridgewater broke that sack if you had gotten a big play afterward, though, lol.

Yeah, that's the other thing, Bridgewater was fucking horrible. My last play of the game, and he throws it out of bounds by like 15 yards. Then the deep balls were all fucked up. I know the wind was blowing bad...but it didn't seem to be affecting those bullshit one handed catches (at least I finally caught one near the end). This game this year, man...I don't know. EA has this mastery of making things better and worse at the same time. So many people talk about this being the best Madden ever, but it has SO MANY issues. You'd think we're all just imagining shit.

 

Also, no offense, but if that wasn't defensive holding on the deep ball to Wallace at the end, I don't know what is. It still blows my mind that running into a player and preventing them from progressing in their route (ie. getting to the ball) 20 yards downfield is not recognized by this game. People in online ranked almost exclusively do that shit. I know you didn't do it intentionally that play. But if they're going to throw all those penalties at me, it would be nice if it was at least called evenly.

 

This fucking game just makes me unhealthy. I don't even want to know what my blood pressure is right now...

We have advanced to Week 5. Free agency is now closed again. Sorry if you missed it. Shit happens, but the wheels keep moving.

 

The deadline for Week 5 will be 10/4.

I also wanted to check in with the Cowboys owner and see if he still plans on playing. I know he had issues with freezing/results not counting in the first couple games. But the last two weeks, there was miscommunication with the Eagles and now just not playing his last CPU game. And after all that, he sits at 4-0 and is ranked the #1 team in the league...

 

This is something that's worth addressing even beyond the Cowboys, because it comes up basically every year anyway. Usually, I'm not a huge stickler for CPU games...but since this year's game is such a mess...and I'm having to turn off injuries before advancing the league, people not playing games also means they're avoiding injuries.

 

So, anybody who loses interest because "CPU games are boring" and then comes back around playoff time is probably going to have a healthier team than the rest of us who are playing every game. I feel like the only ways to deal with that are booting people after they've missed a certain number of games...or by leaving injuries on when we advance. The latter option isn't really fair for games that get disconnected/don't count though.

 

Which leaves us with not cutting people much slack in missing games. Considering the league is only half full in our very first season, I hate the thought of losing anybody. But I don't want to see people who play their games miss a playoff spot because somebody else is letting the CPU handle everything either.

 

It sucks that we even have to address this, but it's the game we were given and we have to make the most of it.

Uh...well, that post was me checking in with him (though I PM'd him now too). So, 6 hours between posts, when most everybody is sleeping...no, I haven't heard from him yet, lol. :)

 

You're welcome to PM him and try to set up the game though. I can't imagine that hurting anything.

Full disclosure here, because I like to keep up as best I can.  

 

Busy weekend for the wife and I, I hope to get my game in over the weekend sometime, but it's not my priority.  It is against the CPU, but if I don't play it's not because I'm trying to pull a fast one on anybody!
