    I leave for work at 11.30 your time so that doesn't work. We're only advancing to week three where I play you now. I'll put me on auto so just play it whenever you can in the next 24 hours.

    @Fro we're up after that, I should be free all Friday if you're around

    Try to log on some time from Thursday afternoon your time until Friday though or else you're trusting the AI to make your roster cuts for me.

    Beefys ghost is winning by 10 at halftime and he gets the ball back but then I looked over and realized that I was using the broken controller. Feeling very good now because I changed controllers. Looking for a huge second half.

    I think beefy is using his entire secondary against me but his defense is very stout.

    I'm on now.

    Is there anyway to see how big your roster is? its not giving me the cut option on the thing to do tab and I can't see anywhere it says how many guys I need to cut to get to 53

    So I have done a few "cheater" trades and my team rating is still below some of the other user teams.

    I'd really like to stay in the league this year, and I'm definitely in for the new game. The last 2 weeks I have faced the AI teams of Pabs and Beefy, and they were both rated higher than me, and I lost both games.

    When you guys have better team ratings than me, I can't even compete. Happy to take any advice here. I want to stay in the league but I need some help I think.

    Well for one thing it's preseason so the rosters are always a little weird. I know Beefy especially has ridiculous depth. Also Beefy only lost one game last season and I won the Super Bowl so our teams are going to be better than most.

    Where on your team overview screen are you rated below B?

    I literally just watched the game against me so I'm probably in a good position to say something here. Firstly my roster is ridiculously stacked. I'm sure there are teams with higher ratings but I put a lot of time and effort into eliminating any weaknesses in the roster. I've traded well with other players, I've signed free agents in positions of need, I went young early and piled XP into certain stats which fit the scheme I'm running and I turned up for the draft each year so I could get good young players who I could then play straight away and earn loads of XP on.

    Basically my roster is really good. It's just all fell apart for me in the post-season each year. I'd expect the AI to get 13+ wins with that roster if we simmed the season. But I had one of the lowest ratings back in September when we started.

    But I don't think the rosters are why you lost. You actually were playing well and were leading and looking comfortable late in the second quarter and then threw three quick interceptions giving up a pick six and two short fields which completely changed the game.

    You ran the ball like four times all game even though the third one of those you was a 70 yard TD run.

    There's other decisions you don't help yourself with either. I've played a lot of Madden these last three years and this is, without hyperbole, the worst defensive playcall I've ever seen:

    https://clips.twitch.tv/FaintArbitraryCakeJebaited

    Second and goal at the 1 and you take out a defensive lineman and switch to a dime defense for basically the only time in the game. My O Line didn't even need to do any work. On the replay at the end of the clip there isn't a single defender in view. Madden is probably more about play calling than it is execution as the computer will handle most of the execution for you and the play calling here was horrible.

    I hope you don't quit, maybe just use this season to play around a little bit. Try calling plays without just relying on the suggestions screen, try to run it a little more and try to focus on the shorter throws instead of going downfield so much. When you were dumping off to the running back or looking for the guys on drag or out routes you were looking dangerous but then it looked like you'd get bored and decide you'd need to bomb it long to my secondary.

    We're underway in the regular season. Good luck all.

    Reminder that we're looking for circa 48 hour advances.

    it really does come down to these kinds of things. this isn't the real nfl, where if you trade for some star players or a few key pieces you suddenly start winning games, cause in the end it's still you holding the controller. obviously having better rated players will help, but it'll only take you so far.

    madden 15 and 16 were terrible for me. i think i won maybe two user games over the span of those two years, and ended in a tie two other times. this was back in the real wild west days of trading. at one point in madden 16 i had a 90+ peyton manning throwing to a 90+ brandon marshall and i couldn't make shit happen between them and was constantly losing games, user and AI alike. wasn't until last year that i somehow managed to not suck, and i cant even tell you exactly why that happened. i did pretty decent with bortles, then traded him to mmh for stafford and really found my groove from there. stafford would never have been one of my top choices for QB, but it worked out amazingly. i traded with you for leveon bell and ended up benching him for cj anderson and winning the super bowl against mikey. the top talent and high ratings arent always going to be what's best for the team we create or the style we play. and sometimes the style we wanna play just isnt going to work. madden 15 and 16 in this league was big on the deep ball, and i couldnt for the life of me accomplish those. but i felt like i was missing out, so i kept pushing it. madden 17 came around and despite having a long ball receiver on my team in arob, i went more conservative in my passing, never gave up on the run game, and things started to click. and then once i got stafford and found a play or two for a deep bomb that worked for my team, i started to connect on those. and i didnt find those by the suggestion menu during a game, i went in and ran a bunch in practice mode. it's a bit of an annoying process to get good at this game when it clearly doesnt come as naturally or as easily as it seems for others.

    i'd definitely suggest for this upcoming season you try and do shit you wouldnt normally do, just to see how it feels. rush on every play and only throw on a third down if you need to. do different shit on defense. pass exclusively to the middle of the field for a quarter. see if anything works. once something starts working, even if it's not your instinct to do it, finally seeing some progress and forward momentum will override that instinct pretty quickly.

    @Pablo Diablo any action tonight? Otherwise I can go closer to 6p your time tomorrow. Or just play my ghost. All good.

    I guarantee that my ghost is better than me.

    Sorry was a busy weekend and holiday for me so knew I wouldn’t have made a later start. You play my ghost. Compare your play to how you played against me in preseason.

    @GOLDBERG'S BEST FRIEND

    we should play an exhibition match since we are of similar skillsets in this game. maybe throw a tenner on it. you can pick your team first and I will pick a team of equal or lesser OVR rating.

    side note @CWE I can probably play tonight if we haven't advanced yet

    Streaming my week 3 game against the Pats. I'm 0-2 and could use a win.

    Golden Friend has been ok. I drop a ton of passes that look like they should be caught. Looking to tighten it up.

    Also Duke Johnson has Had a few huge run TD plays. Like 60 yard type stuff, however after last game he regressed 4 points. Might make a move for a good RB.

    I finally won a game against the lowly pats. I took some of the advice here and tried mostly doing new stuff and relying on running more. Huge game out of the freshly regressed Duke Johnson. Friend had a hideous game. 168 yards and 0 TD'S but a win is a win.

    @Fro Maybe we get a 4th of July exhibition tomorrow in honor of America easily defeating England in the fucking revolutionary war and declaring our independence?

    I'm around all day grilling/flag waving/swilling beer and hanging.

    And he's a QB. He's getting 5,000 yards this season
    5,000 yards is the aim. He's on course for a lot of TD's as well

    That may have been my best game of this version. I still gave up 21 points but my offense was beastly and I had control the whole game for the first time since the previous edition. I got an easy win and I immediately face them again after my bye next week.

    We've been advanced to Week 5

    My players XP points have been spent, despite the setting stating it shouldn't affect user teams. Anyone else got this issue?

    I need to get my week 6 game in by Tuesday 10am/UK 6pm if possible. I'm then traveling for a week. Actually I may bring my PS4. More to come on that. Otherwise I will miss 6 IRL Days.

    Hahaha. Can you go tonight? I'm conscious there's some football matches coming up

    Edit - actually Pabs has to play his game and is going to do that tonight. Maybe we can go Thursday?

    Picked up another fairly easy win against The Cardinals. I had a rare audience(pabs was watching) so I started doing dumb shit at the end and nearly screwed up but I held on. 3-2 now. Better start for me. I'll see you chums next sunday. If you can please leave me off auto and force me, I will play my he Sunday when I land.

    We advanced this morning, Fro was still on auto so they simmed his game (he won)

    If you're putting yourself on auto it's best to set it to only be one week.

    That was intentional. I can't play over the coming days but will hopefully be able to jump back in later on.

    I'm all wrapped up now. Had a very fun game. I'm in a winning streak and every game I go life and death against the computer. I still love this.

    Mikey is left to play. Also I traded for L'veon bell. Wasn't even really a very dirty trade.

    I'll check tonight. My PS4 has been overheating so I need to find somewhere else to put it.

    This is the most humiliating game I've ever played. The winless 49er's Are beating me 35 to 17 at halftime. Jimmy Garrapolo is 12 for 13 with 292 yards and 4 TD's at the half.

    Let us know if you can't play this week. We can advance now if you are out. I think the official advance time is in around 12 hours.

    I've got no trade to accept. That said I'm assuming you were trying to get my second CB for your second WR. It's a decent offer but I really like my guy so going to pass. Sorry.

    We're about to advance

    Going for 7 wins in a row against the Packers. Turns out having better players has helped me rattle off a little winning streak vs. AI Teams. I appreciate you fellows allowing me to make some catch-up trades after years of hideous management biting me in the ass.
