Topics I've Started

PS4 Madden League

21 December 2013 - 11:29 PM

I didn't see an existing one on here, so I was wondering if there was any interest in doing a Connected Franchise like the one from the 360 forum. Currently, i'm trying to decide if I should go find one somewhere else, but I like the community here and would rather help start one up. If your interested just post your PSN name and the team you'd be interested in. If there's enough interest, we'll do a first come first serve so make sure you claim your team if your interested.

CAG Madden 25 Owner League

13 August 2013 - 02:36 AM

Cag Madden 25 Owner League- Season 1



Link to the Online Website- Link



With the official league doing coach only, I will be starting an Owners league for anyone interested(especially for those who love setting hot dog prices). This isn't meant to compete with the official league but to offer a place for those of us that have enough time for multiple leagues or just missed out on the official league and would like to experience owner mode with the CAG community. We will be doing sim style gameplay wise, but as this is a secondary league, we will be a little more lenient on trades and will allow Owners to move their teams. Obviously, there will be restrictions but those will be outlined before we do begin. Full restrictions to gameplay and to owners mode will be outlined below as we get closer to the games release.



Advancement- We will be doing a set advancement schedule. Advances will occur on Mondays and Fridays around 7:00 AM. Hopefully, this helps with planning your games in advance.

Team Selection- We're going to be doing a first come first serve, so get your team posted.



Rules- Guessing at what the settings/rules are going to be. These are subject to change when the game comes out.


Settings- All-Madden, 5 minute quarters, No acceleration clock


Gameplay Rules:


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.

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.


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.


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.

Maddn 13 Cag Tournament: 1000 Microsoft Point Reward, Tournament has STARTED

16 April 2013 - 01:18 PM

Posted Image

The Official League seems to be on it's final season for Madden 13, so I thought it would be a good time to see if there is any interest in doing tournaments between the end of the Madden 13 season and when Madden 25 comes out. I will be using Challonge.com to host the bracket and I will post seeding guidelines/rules below.

The target date for the first tournament to start is May 3rd. The deadline for signing up will be May 1st 6 PM EST.
EDIT: Because the playoffs for the initial league have gone on longer than expected and seeding won't be finalized for a few days, i have pushed signups out until Friday 05/03/2013 at 6:00 PM Est.

Important Bracket Links-

Here is the link to the bracket- http://challonge.com/u9sup6ac

The following link will allow you to sign up for the tournament if you don't mind becoming a member of the Challonge.com website. If you don't want to become a member, then just post below or send me a PM and i'll add you to the bracket.

Sign Up Link- http://challonge.com...gnup/PQJ6VdBFo7


People that participated in the Official League will be guaranteed a seed higher than someone that did not participate in the league. To seed people from the Official Leage, the first tiebreak is overall record(total wins, then win percentage), because there were numerous times where people just didn't have as many games played but had obviously better win percentages there were a few times i made judgement calls. The second tiebreak is playoff record(Playoffs wins, then win percentage, then playoff appearances). If they are still tied after that, then a committee of 3 selected members will vote on it. We'll have to discuss how to seed players that did not participate in the official league. My hopes are that some volunteers from the Gentleman's League would volunteer to help seed them.

These will be discussed and updated as we approach the tournament.

The Tournament will be Double Elimination. The winner of the losers bracket will have to beat the winner of the winners bracket twice to win the tournament.

Game play-

Team Selection- Each person has to submit a list of 3 teams before each tournament. These will be the only teams that they are able to use during that tournament. You can change your teams until the listed deadline for signup, just make sure to point out if you are changing your teams.

Game Settings- Will be played at the standard 5 minutes per quarter with accell clock off. Difficulty will be at All Pro. Higher seed is the home team and Weather should be set for clear. Any games not set for these settings should be restarted. If neither team notices before the end of the first quarter, then both parties have to agree to a restart. If one team wants to keep playing, then the game should be finished.

EDIT: Conventional Playcalling unless both parties agree to Gameflow.

Hurry Up-

Onside Kick-

Fourth Down-

Squib Kick-

Two Point-

Game Play Styles-


Position Swaps-

QB Swap-



Lineups- I expect everyone to set up their lineups before the game in your menus. No one will be required to keep the game paused so you can change your entire lineup.

Madden Cag Fantasy League. Wildcard Round

18 January 2013 - 06:51 PM


A new league had to be created because for whatever reason, i could not start it as a fantasy draft. I have sent out invites to everyone including Uber and Perditiontroy for the new league which i have confirmed gives me the option to start with a fantasy draft. Everyone please join in the same division that you initially signed up for.

Rules that are going to be up for debate-
Ok I had a chance to go over everyone's votes. Here are the rules.

Time- 5 minutes no runoff. Only 2 people voted for 6 minutes, the rest went with 5 minutes.

Injury- On, only one voted for injuries off.

Salary cap- For now, its on but we'll rejudge this come the offseason.

Difficulty- For now, all pro won the vote. This was probably the closest vote. This will also be looked at during the offseason. I just want to reiterate, I don't expect to see people mining XP off CPU games by running up the score.

Trade with cpu- Off, only 3 people voted to have this on.

Trades with humans- On, but everyone agrees there still needs to be a way to judge. The way I'm proposing is that every trade, if you can get 4 other users that are not a part of the trade then the trade will be approved. If the trade is outrageous, Im reserving the right to call for a community vote. Majority will decide. Also if I see a group of people just working together to get trades approved unfairly, then this will be altered and looked at as well.

Gameplay- We'll go with the official rules with the exception of celebrating. Most people seem to agree that diving/celebrating should be allowed, especially considering its suppose to be a fun league. Obviously, take into consideration the score/who you are playing. Obviously, if you know its someone who doesn't like that sort of thing or they request you don't do it then just avoid it for that game. Or if the score is out of hand, just let it be, be respectful and just run it in.

Everyone, remember that when you join the league, you have to manually turn off FILL ROSTER. I can set everything else to off but that setting.

Description of the Draft-

I just did a test draft. Each team has 45 seconds per pick to select. The draft starts with only a certain pool of players available to be selected. Starting in round 7, every 6 rounds the draft is paused and more players are added to the pool. The draft is 54 rounds long. Players are signed to new contracts which I'm guessing are based around age/ovr/position/round selected. If you're curious about the contract situation, I'm going to leave my test franchise up for anyone to join and check out. The name is cag fantasy test and the password is cag.
