PostSubject: M25 - Offseason Schedule and Draft Date Poll   Wed Mar 05, 2014 3:43 pm

Our first season of Madden on PS4 is coming to an end. Soon there will only be 4 teams left alive so its time to look forward to season 2 and the offseason. Below is the planned schedule which will begin a day after the Super Bowl is played. At this rate it seems we should be done with the Super Bowl by Sunday and able to begin the offseason by Monday the 10th.

We will try to plan the draft for a date and time when as many people as possible can be there. In order to arrange that please mark ALL the times that you could be online for the draft in the poll. The more dates/times you can be available for the draft the easier it will be to get everyone involved. The draft generally takes about 2 hours with a full league. After you have voted please post in this thread and just let me know you voted. That way I know how many people still need to vote.

So heres the general plan.

Offseason Schedule:
The offseason is broken up into 7 stages (Actually 9 stages but 2 are automatically skipped by EA). We will advance one stage per day.

Free Agent Bidding is like a silent auction type of thing. FA Bidding happens over 3 stages where you can bid on players you want. When a stage is advanced some players will decide to sign while others will wait for a better offer before deciding.

Throughout the offseason you still have access to progression and roster.

Below are the stages and description of what tasks you have for each stage.

Stage 1: March 13th 11pm
Player Resigning - last chance to resign your players with expired contracts before they hit free agency. You cannot renegogiate with players who rejected your contract. But you can franchise tag one player though.

Stage 2: March 14th 11pm
Free Agent Bidding Phase 1
Trade Players Enabled

Stage 3:
Nothing (for whatever reason this stage gets skipped automatically)

Stage 4: March 15th 11pm
Free Agent Bidding Phase 2
Scouting

Stage 5:
Nothing (for whatever reason this stage gets skipped automatically)

Stage 6: March 16th 11pm
Free Agent Bidding Final Phase
Scouting

Stage 7: Ends shortly before advance to the Draft - March 17th
Scouting - Spend all remaining Scouting Points by the end of this week because SP won't carry over after this point.

Stage 8: Monday March 17th 7pm
Draft - The draft is only possible on the PS4. There is also no way to set your draft board to ensure the CPU will pick the players you want.

I've been asked a couple times about draft day trades so I wanted to update the first post with information about that. Trades will be allowed during the draft. They need to go through the approval process though too. In order to speed things up I'd suggest posting your trades beforehand if you have something worked out but making the trades conditional. By that I mean, if you want to trade up to the 10th pick, for example, because you want player X, then make a condition with your trade partner that you will only accept the trade if player X is there but you don't have to tell anyone who that player is. That way we can approve the trade beforehand and if player X is there you can process the trade immediately instead of having to pause the draft to get approval from the trade committee.
When you post the trade for approval just make sure to write CONDITIONAL in the topic so we know that the trade may not be accepted if the guy you want with the pick is already taken.

If thats too complicated or something unexpected happens and you want to trade with someone during the draft thats fine. Just know that we each only have 2 minutes to make our picks in the first 2 rounds and 1 minute for all other rounds. If a trade is agreed by two teams we can pause up to 2 additional minutes for trade approval but thats it. Without these limits the draft could take over 3 hours and most guys won't have the time for that. Again no trades are allowed with CPU teams (we don't have any CPU teams at the moment anyway) or teams on autopilot.

Stage 9: Immediately after Draft
Free Agency Recap - List of what FAs signed where
Drafted Rookie Signings - This happens automatically. Just an info screen showing you their contracts, ratings and your cap room.
You also need to set your depth chart now

Preseason Week 1: Wednesday March 19th 8am
Free Agency - 2 Round Free Agency Waiver Wire/Draft
We will have a FA draft/waiver wire before FA opens Wednesday when we advance.
All teams who want FAs should send me a list of all possible FAs you want by Tuesday night. I will then assign FAs to teams based on draft order (reverse order of standings) and the order in which you list the FAs. You will get the top player on your list who was not taken before your pick. I will post the taken players in the forum and other teams will not be allowed to sign them when FA starts when we advance to Preseason Week 1. There will be 2 rounds of FA reserving. If all the players on your list are taken by your pick then you won't get anyone, so make sure to send me a long enough list. You can find the available free agents on
http://daddyleagues.com/smleurope/players?name=&position=all&team=fa&sorty_by=OVR

Once the list of reserved players is posted you can sign the players assigned to you. There was also some type of bug that didn't allow the Bears to sign any FAs even though they were the only person bidding on some of them and bid more than the desired amount. So those few players will be reserved as well.

Any players that haven't been reserved by the time we advance to Preseason Week 2 can be signed on a first come first serve basis.

Practice
Preseason Game - (Nobody will be put on Autopilot for Pre-Season Games. No exceptions. Do not ask me to do it. Do not ask your opponent to do it. Injuries will be disabled so no stars will be lost in simmed Pre-Season Games. Also, teams are required to allow backups to play in the second half. Pre-Season will not be used to run up scores, pad stats and gain easy XP! Doing so will result in a suspension.)

I will edit in the exact dates and deadlines in this post once the Superbowl and Draft dates are solidified.

Plus, just to re-iterate what Brza said about pre-season games. Injuries are turned OFF but if anyone re-arranges their roster so their starters get more playing time to pad stats and XP they will be the recipient of an instant one game ban (your next regular season opponent will be allowed to play your cpu team). 

Stat padding is a major blight on online franchise leagues and we will not tolerate it. In the past guys have abused it, but no more. 

We will be watching. You have been warned.

If people don't post here saying that they voted I can't keep track of how many people voted. 15 of 17 is a good ratio so I could plan that date for the draft. But if its really 15 of 32 because everyone else voted but just didn't post here then we may have to try another date for the draft.

So apparently someone withdrew their vote for Sunday. And I got 4 more answers since my last post. That means we've got 14 of 21 people who can do Sunday with 11 votes still remaining.
