    We usually advance every two to three days and we do an untimed draft for the first two rounds because it's hard to get a time for 32 people to all be available. We're setting a time to do the rest of the rounds (it's a fantasy draft)

    played my first game saturday night. thought the breaking tackles animation/results are a little silly this year.

    also haven't had a chance to really dive in but did they add the option to have a CB shadow an assigned WR the whole game or is that still a big fucking miss?

    Also hoping there's no restrictions on moving teams bc if this horrendous tank season paves way for a new start the Ravens are going to Austin

    The bats are very similar to the Ravens. They even have the same purple and black color scheme. what's the gripe with mascot changes? we had that complaint in the other league bc of daddy leagues site not recognizing it but Brian figured out how to fix it

    Same reason we banned it in M17. By the end of M16, it was impossible to tell what division all the random, and largely gimmicky, mascots were playing in.

    Just not interested in taking the league in that direction. I'd much prefer for and user to look at the Ravens on their schedule and know if it's a divisional/conference game. Makes everything smoother

    The bats are a 3 year old franchise that have become a household name. Nobody even knows who the Ravens are anymore

    Is EA ever going to fix the missed PAT issues when you sim or play offense only? My kicker misses at least one a game and he isn't named Roberto Aguayo.

    Had an extra point attempt blocked last night

    Guy was returning it for 2pts, but blocked in the back on the return.

    I accept penalty.

    Madden then gives him 1st & goal from my 1

    It was neat

    its so fucking irritating

    you can edit a kicker with 99/99 power/accuracy and he still misses 10-15 XPs a season

    I do the moments sim thing and I got a TD to tie the game with seconds left and the kicker missed the fucking XP.

    This happened to me. I threw a pick 6 inside the 10. Around the 50 there was an illegal block in back on the return. So they should have the ball around their 30-35.

    Nope, 1st and Goal from the 1.

    played in a franchise game last night.

    rv12 got 3 or 4 consecutive plays with facemasks called against him. It was such a joke I declined the last one. There were at least 7 total facemasks.
    Also had a starting DT, DE, and WR get knocked out of the game. With 2 other players getting injured but me being able to and deciding to keep them in.

    Both injuries and penalties seem to be a little fucking retarded in this years game

    and fumbles - it seems like the games are all or nothing with penalties, injuries, and fumbles.

    I have injuries set at 20 (40 is default). Even 20 may be a little high.

    Haven't seen the issue with facemasks. Sounds like an odd tangent for Madden.

    Also, we're up this week. When do you want to dance? I'm available any time tonight. Tomorrow night is doubtful

    Kopped an XBone for the kid for Christmas and got a fiending for some football.

    Seen a lot of griping about glitchy shit. Should I wait it out until September, or just dive in anyway? You guys still have a league running?

    If you're going to play in September you may as well start learning the game now. May look into EA Access, as Madden will be free soon (if it isn't already with that sub). I have an active league going that's currently full, but if you end up getting the game and want in, I can add you to the waiting list
