PostSubject: Madden 13 Season Kickoff Info   Fri Sep 07, 2012 9:49 am

The opening day rosters should be released by early next week and there should also be a patch on the 11th. EDIT: rosters were delayed So we started the franchise on Friday the 14th. Once I set up the Connected Career CC I will invite you all via PSN and also post on the forum. Please join as soon as you can after invites are sent.

The final rosters will only have 61 players on it so we won't have to make many cuts in the first preseason. On the 16th we'll advance to week 2 of the preseason. After that we'll advance once a day for the rest of the preseason. People that want to play the preseason games can play them but if you don't want to you won't have to and the league won't be held up for it. Everyone should have a chance to at least run practice and progress players.

That means the regular season should kickoff on the 19th and we'll advance every 3 days during the regular season.

We will have 2 rounds of free agency draft here on the forum though. The draft will begin after the CC is created. We need to move through it quickly though to avoid delaying the start of the regular season. The order of the draft will be worst OVR to best based on the roster update. If we move through the draft quickly and it seems we could use a 3rd round then we'll do that. Otherwise FA will be on a first come first serve basis after that.

After the CC is created, I will start a new thread under Player Transaction Central > Waiver Wire and list the order of the teams for the FA draft. Teams then should either post the player they want when its their turn and the player they will cut or post 'PASS' if they don't want anyone. After they post they can sign the player in game. The list here will help make sure things move quickly without people going out of order or having to wait until someone else signs a player in game before making his choice. And remember you must have a minimum of 48 players on your roster to keep things fair in free agency so don't start cutting players right after joining the franchise/CC.

Also, before posting your choice you should check their desired salary either on the maddencareer website (http://www.easports.com/madden-nfl/connected-careers/) or in game to make sure you have enough under the cap to sign them.

I have also sent invites to an Online Community in game. About 20 have already signed up for it. The Community allows us to have an online lobby for friendly games/exhibition matches where we can use the same sliders and rules that we'll have in the CC. The rosters in the community are just the standard current online rosters, so once we get further into our CC it won't be as relevant. It's not mandatory to join the community but its a good place to start getting some practice in user-user games and to get a feel for the sliders we'll use.

So again, we have a full 32 teams right now. The Pre-Season will start on the 14th and the Regular Season should start on the 19th.

you should enter the league when its made though.

other wise if you start with cpu controlled teams they will act on their own and cut and sign players.

league should start will all 32 owners in it.

Good point Tru. Anybody who is around on the 12th but will be gone soon after the league is created should still join as soon as possible and just set your team on auto-pilot. That way the CPU won't make any crazy roster moves for you but other owners will be able to play the CPU as usual.

Unlike last year with XFN (which probably won't be compatible with M13 for a long time, if at all), the commissioner can't control roster moves for other teams and the CPU will automatically make roster moves if the team isn't human controlled before the first preseason advance on the 15th.

I'm not sure yet boboclark. The devs have said the option is in the game but I haven't seen it. I think since I'm commish I don't have an autopilot option but it should be there once you join the league.

So, EA actually did release the second patch today as scheduled but it was mainly just stability and GameFace fixes. However, apparently Friday counts as early in the week for them. They posted last week that the CCM rosters would be updated early in the week but today they posted that they won't be released till Friday now.

So unfortunately we're gonna have to push back the league start to friday now whenever the roster updates are available. The whole timeline will be pushed back in our league then. Invites should be sent Friday night the 14th. Advance to week 2 of the preseason will be Sunday the 16th and the regular season should start on the 19th.

If the CCM roster update is the same as the play now one then we will also have the practice squad players in the original rosters so we will have to make a few cuts to get down to the 53 man limit.

So that is THE patch? No fix for the D line coverage bug? Just stability? Cos that single bug is killing my enjoyment of this game big time.

Yea Brza look after his team and trade me Janoris Jenkins Laughing

PS.

Seeing the patch list not include editing players I'm not sure I can be bothered to wait for 53 man rosters... Lots of useable players such as Danario Alexander (just one) are no longer in the game, while bums who have no Madden use have taken their place.

My 2 Cents, I'm fine with either outcome but I'm disappointed with the delay and the rosters.

I'm just waiting for a patch for the damn coverage bug when user controlling D linemen. I can't start my CC until that is fixed and lord only knows when that will be. Will there be another patch with the roster update this week or was this lame patch the patch EA had been talking about?

there is a minor solution for that pass rush bug lol.
but its a gamble on your behalf lol.

before snap press L2 and hav your secondary cover the pass while you go with your pass rush thing.

L2 and R3 up i think.

only downside i that your defense will play the pass and a simple draw could be very effective.

its a guessing game but it could give you a lil bit more enjoyment Razz

first patch was yesterday and CC roster update is friday and the patch you are waiting for comes in october i think.
at least thats what they are aiming at.

The opening day roster is now available. I'll set up the league and send invites as soon as I get home from work. Probably in about 2 hours.
