NFT: Madden 18 Online Franchise Xbox One

COLTS and BOLTS : 8/9/2017 4:22 pm
And here we go again. Looking to get people together to do an online franchise. I know of several people and what teams they want to use, but I'm getting our page started.

I will be the Chargers again.
well guys

count me in back in not sure what team I want yet but I know I want to get put in the same division as Bad intel so we get more games in with each other.

It's almost tempting to try to get everyone into one conference so we don't have the usual 2-4 players in the NFC by themselves waiting until the playoffs to play anybody.

jtfuoco : 8/9/2017 10:32 pm : link
it not a bad idea especially for the real active players who we can count on being around to play there games. I could see putting the new people who are not full committed over on the side almost like a audition.
How does this work?  
trueblueinpw : 8/9/2017 10:42 pm : link
Not sure I can get in because it's such a time suck but would love to know how it works. How many games per week, level of play, just BBI, etc.
TrueBlue  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/10/2017 12:24 am : link
It's 2 games per week (Sun-Wed and Wed-Sat). Sim style and there's a spectrum of players but most are above average. It's a combo of BBI people and some other people.

It's a lot of fun and doesn't take too much time with o my playing two games per week. Comp games are quick and if need be can be sinned and most people here are easy to plan games with.
Team selection  
mik999999 : 8/10/2017 12:53 am : link
Though I'd like to stick with my Giants they are pretty highly rated and thus not likely a good idea for me to be. Right now I'm looking at one of the weaker teams and will likely end up taking the bears but will try out a bunch of teams when it comes out.

The conference stacking would be fine with me but two major drawbacks. 1. The super bowl would be pointless against a comp and the biggest game should be fun. 2. It's tough to find enough teams to interest people in one conference. I'd vote NFC if we go conference.

COLTS and BOLTS : 8/10/2017 1:15 am : link
True. I'm going to watch who picks what and I may jump to the NFC depending on how many people go where
Teams  
Mr. B : 8/10/2017 2:20 am : link
I'm in, barring something crazy, I'm calling Browns
Sounds good  
BTNasty : 8/10/2017 8:05 am : link
I missed this last year so I'm in for this year if there are any open spots. Don't really care which team I get although I wouldn't mind having the Jags. This is my GT as well.
BT  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/10/2017 12:17 pm : link
Plenty of open spots so welcome to the league

Thanks mik. So you guys play head to head live? Why would it be two games a week? Also, what do mean by good players? If I play on All Maden, I can hang with the computer and win probably 70% using the Giants. Does that mean I'm good or would that put me more in the ordinary group?

Sorry if these questions are stupid.

Hey True, been playing in the league for a few years now.

We do play head-to-head in our human games. I.e. If you're the Giants and you play the cowboys and there is a cowboys owner you two will work out a time to play and get your game in. If you are playing a team controlled by the CPU, you can play it at any point.

We play two games a week to keep the level of interest up. Often people get their games in quickly and we want to be able to keep the league moving and avoid any luls

Good players are people who run sim style offenses, i.e. People knowledgeable of the sport. If you are beating the CPU that amount on all madden, you should do just fine.

COLTS and BOLTS : 8/10/2017 3:05 pm : link
If you're playing mostly on All Madden then you should be fine. We play sim style (so punts on 4th down, kicking field goals where appropriate, etc). We generally don't run into problems with people being dicks. It's just like playing an offline franchise (drafts and everything) but people will control some of the teams.
Cool.  
trueblueinpw : 8/10/2017 4:04 pm : link
My wife will probably kill me, but I'm in. How do I sign up? How do I claim a team?
true blue  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/10/2017 7:04 pm : link
Consider yourself signed up. Just post what team you want and I will let you know if someone else has claimed that team.

Otherwise when the game comes out I will create the franchise and send you an invite and that's it.

Yours if you want them
I am back in  
WTH_Jackson : 8/11/2017 1:42 am : link
For another season and going back to my Redskins
true blue  
jtfuoco : 8/11/2017 10:06 am : link
if you have any friends or family interested in playing let them know the more human players the better and we can stack you all in the same Division if you want.

I am going to call the Carolina panthers at this point since it looks like most are going to play in the NFC this year
What new feature  
WTH_Jackson : 8/12/2017 7:41 pm : link
Is everyone most excited for?

That Longshot story mode looks interesting
I'm excited  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/14/2017 6:03 pm : link
for some of the new strategy stuff they supposedly put in to help micro manage your defense. At least that is how I am interpreting some stuff I've read.

Also, the goal is to start the franchise after the usual post-preseason roster update (as usual).
Bump  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/16/2017 11:10 am : link
If you know people who want to play, get them to post here
Another year another madden  
v0rT3x : 8/17/2017 2:14 pm : link
And many more Super Bowls for Mik9999999.
I think if Mik99999  
jtfuoco : 8/17/2017 5:22 pm : link
takes a really bad team then there is a chance for some of us to get him
If everyone's taking an NFC team I'll drop the Raiders...  
trueblueinpw : 8/17/2017 5:53 pm : link
Are we sticking in the NFC?

Take whatever team you want, we don't stick to one division. People bounce around from team to team every new madden edition. Some of us stay with our favorites.

Yes he took the Bears but they have a beast RB in Howard and he is a very run oriented offense. It will definitely be an interesting year.
Trueblue  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/18/2017 12:26 am : link
We have people in the AFC too. I'm Chargers so I'm in the division with you and we will more than likely have a Broncos owner too.
Ok, I'll stick w/ Raiders  
trueblueinpw : 8/18/2017 9:04 am : link
I know they're pretty stacked with talent but I have a feeling most of you will mop the floor with me anyway.

It's pretty competitive, hardest opponent is Mike999999. Just start playing on all Madden with the cpu beefed up and you should be good
Just a few more days  
COLTS and BOLTS : 8/21/2017 1:57 am : link
until the game is out. Also, bump
It's a lot of fun  
mik999999 : 3:38 am : link
Don't let these guys scare you. I have had a good run the last few maddens but generally all my games are close. Never blow anyone out. I have been fortunate to be on the right side of the close ones recently.
