PostSubject: M25 - Season 3 Offseason Schedule and Draft Date Poll    Mon Jun 02, 2014 5:31 pm

Our second season of Madden on PS4 (10th season overall!) is coming to an end. Now there are only 4 teams left alive so its time to look forward to season 3 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 Friday at the latest and able to begin the offseason by the weekend.

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 2-3 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: Begins June 6 around 10pm ENDS June 8 9am 
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: ENDS June  9 9am
Free Agent Bidding Phase 1
Trade Players Enabled

The following players are reserved for owners that joined the league after the CPU bungled negotiations. Only the team in parentheses is allowed to bid on them during the offseason:
these players are off-limits during the FA period.

LT Nate Solder (Patriots)
RT Marcus Cannon (Patriots)
HB Stevan Ridley (Patriots)
TE O. Daniels (Texans)
LOLB B. Reed (Texans)
MLB J. Mays (Texans)
CB K. Jackson (Texans)
SS D. Manning (Texans)

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

Stage 4: ENDS June  10 9am
Free Agent Bidding Phase 2
Scouting

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

Stage 6: ENDS June  11 9am
Free Agent Bidding Final Phase
Scouting

Stage 7: Ends shortly before advance to the Draft - June 11 7pm
Scouting - Spend all remaining Scouting Points by the end of this week because SP won't carry over after this point.

Stage 8: Wednesday June 11th Night 7pm Start time
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.

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: Begins June 12th 9pm ends June 14 9am
Free Agency - 3 Round Free Agency Waiver Wire/Draft
We will advance to the Preseason so we have an up to date list of FAs. However free agency will not be a free for all until Preseason Week 2!! In Week 1 we will have a FA draft/waiver wire.
All teams who want FAs should send me a list of all possible FAs you want by * 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. There will be 3 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 will be able to find the available free agents on or in Madden after we advance to the Preseason:
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. Only players assigned to you in the FA draft may be signed in Preseason Week 1. If you need more players because of roster minimums you must notify me and then you may sign only players rated less than 70. Please make sure you meet the minimum requirements before starting a preseason game or else the CPU will randomly sign players for you. Those players could be reserved by other teams which generally causes a bunch of problems and delays.

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.

My first half-season in SML has been very enjoyable. It appears to be well organised and people are surprisingly active for this time of year, it's also my first European league.

Just wanted to say I'm enjoying it, and I hope it continues.

Each person should vote for as many dates/times as you can be available. Not just one time. That way it will be easier to find a date where most everyone can be involved.

Also, since the Superbowl will be played tonight at 7pm we will start the offseason about an hour afterwards which should give me time to sync everything before advancing. The first offseason phase (Player Resigning) will start tonight and will end on Sunday morning around 9am.

I updated the schedule with real dates. It looks like the majority prefers Wednesday June 11th Night 7pm-10pm so the schedule will be geared towards that. We are still waiting for some votes so if the majority votes the draft for another date I will change extend advance dates on the fly but I wanted to post the potential schedule as soon as possible so that everyone is informed.

Hi brza,

As per our discussion during the previous season can you please remind everyone that these players are off-limits during the FA period.

LT Nate Solder
RT Marcus Cannon
HB Stevan Ridley

As we discussed previously the CPU attempted to resign these players and they rejected the CPU. Didn't give me a chance to negotiate.
