USA Madden 15 5th Annual PS4 Blu-ray Online League - Season 2




  • This is now a Free Franchise League. No donations required. Before you sign up. Please make sure you're committed to playing one (1) game a week based off the 2014-2015 NFL Season. If can't play an entire NFL season, please don't sign up. This makes my job easier keeping track of the League. Post your PSN ID and NFL team on this thread.



  • At the end of the Season. A $25 Amazon Gift Card will go to the Super Bowl winner and a $10 Amazon Gift Card to the runner-up. To qualify for the Amazon Gift Card. Owners must play majority of the regular season which includes playing against the CPU and ALL of your playoff games. Owners that join during the middle of the season must play ALL of their games to qualify.
  • League Rules are located on Post #3 of this thread. Please read before you join.
  • Post your PSN and NFL team on this thread to sign up.
  • I'm going to appoint a Co-Commissioner to help advance during the week and to help with general issues during the regular season.
  • Post #2 of this thread shows current Owners and current NFL teams.
  • We'll probably begin the actual Blu-ray Franchise either the 2nd or 3rd week of September. Those that signed up, I will be sending PM's to confirm your reservation. Until then, I'll advance each Week (Preseason Franchise) everyday @ 7 pm EST.








Here's what we're doing today....

Exclamation League Rules


LEAGUE RULES






How to schedule your game with your opponent

  • Private message, or PSN your weekly schedule when you're available to your opponent during each week. You may post your schedule by posting on this thread, but that doesn't mean your opponent will see your post. Sending a PM should be your first priority, or a PSN message.
  • If no response after 2 messages via PM/PSN/Thread post. Contact Me by Private Messaging on Blu-ray.com, or you can post here. From there I will determine if you can play the CPU for that Week.
  • Whoever contacts me first stating that they are having trouble contacting their opponent. That person who contacted me will have the slight advantage playing the CPU if it comes down to that scenario.
  • Owners that have 3 consecutive games simulated (and or 5 in total) will be booted from the League, unless you have an explanation why you cannot play your games. I will not hunt anyone down for inactivity. You'll simply be removed and the League will move on.
  • If both owners don't contact me. Your game will be simmed. Please do not wait the day of the due date to contact me if you're having trouble about scheduling your game.
  • Blu-ray.com is headquarters for League info, and game scheduling. If you need League info, don't expect me to post on PSN, or text message any League info.


League Settings

  • You are committed to play one (1) game a Week based off the 2014-2015 NFL Schedule.
  • We will advance each Week every Sunday at 10 pm EST. (Eastern Time)
  • Schedule your games with your opponent via thread post, Private Messages (PM), and or PSN.
  • Trades: Trades are only allowed between human owners. CPU trades are not allowed. You are limited to trading a maximum of 3 (three) players per season. Draft Picks can be traded but only from Rounds 1-3. The League Commissioner will have final word on all trades. Both participants need to PM me, or post the details of the trade in order for it to be approved.
  • Free Agency: Each Owner can sign 1 player each Week. Once every owner selects a player from Free Agency. We can move on and do a 2nd round so on and so forth. There is no particular order to which Owner goes first to selecting Free Agent players. Just make sure it's 1 Free Agent per week. Cut players necessary to maintain the 53 man roster.
    During your Free Agent transaction. Please post on this thread so I can document a list on the 1st Post.





Playing the Game
  • Since there's so many scenarios in a Football game. There's always going to be a different outcome for each game. If you're thinking of doing something extreme, or even doing something to retaliate against your opponent knowing that it's not right. Please don't do it. Please use your best judgement as if this was a real NFL game. This is a friendly community where personal attacks anger issues are not tolerated. Those that try to take advantage of the actual game and, or your opponent will be booted without notice. If you make a threat towards the Franchise in any way. You will be booted without warning. You have been warned!
  • If youíre up 30 points or more in the 4th qtr. Please show some Sportsmanship and respect by not running up the score on your opponent. This includes playing the CPU as well. Run the clock! Anyone that runs up the score will go against their 2 strike policy. (Please scroll to the Discipline & Suspensions section down below for more information)
  • If you're in the 4th qtr up 30 points or more already, and your opponent, or CPU reduces that lead to 15 or 20 points in the 4th qtr. You're allowed to keep scoring. This prevents any comeback attempts from your opponent, or CPU gaining any momentum. If you know that your opponent, or CPU is not a threat to make a comeback, please follow the rules regarding Sportsmanship and respect. (See rule above)
  • If you're up 17-10 with 2:00 in the 4th qtr for example, and you have the ball and you're guaranteed the victory by running out the clock down to zero. I EXPECT YOU to run out the clock. If you decide to call timeouts to try to score a last second FG, or TD. That's considered running up the score. And that's against the rules! Please run the game clock down if you're guaranteed the win.
  • You MAY GO for it on 4th down anytime when you're playing ONLY against the CPU.
  • NEW 4th Down Rule vs. Human 9/3/14: If you're playing against a Human Owner, you have a limit of three (3) times to go for it on 4th down from quarters 1, 2, and 3 during the game. 4th and inches is also included in the 4th Down limit. Please manage the amount of times going for it on 4th down when you play a Human opponent. Anything exceeding that amount during those 3 quarters will result in Player suspensions the following week.

    4th qtr exception: During the 4th quarter and you find yourself losing. You may go for it on 4th down. There is no limit. Please look at game stats to see the number of 4th down attempts for tracking purposes during your Weekly game.
  • You CANNOT run the PLAY CLOCK down to ZERO unless itís under 2 minutes of the 2nd and 4th Quarter. Otherwise, the ball must be snapped preferably between the 6 to 8 second mark on the PLAY CLOCK. Utilize "Game Flow " mode if you're having trouble getting the ball snapped before the 6 seconds play clock approaches. I understand that there's key situations in a game that takes an extra few seconds to select an offensive play. This is acceptable. However, please don't take advantage of taking your time calling a play each down. Failure to follow this rule is also a strike against you.
  • Added 9/26/11: Nano-Blitzing has been banned on Defense. The term Nano-Blitzing means the Defense exploits, and takes advantage of the games CPU/AI by stacking in most cases, a LB right behind a Defensive Lineman. Sometimes a Safety, or even a Free Safety is also stacked behind the Defensive Lineman to shoot the gaps past the Offensive Line to get to the QB within a split second before the play has a chance to develop. Remember, this is a video game so there will be times when your opponent who's on Defense that selects a Blitz Package gets to your QB in a second doesn't mean he's Nano-Blitzing. Please be aware that the games CPU/AI will automatically have LB's, and Safety's move up to the line and blitz. The best way to determine if your opponent is Nano-Blitzing during your game is if he's constantly getting to your QB before the play develops. If there's any post-game controversy in the thread about an Owner Nano-Blitzing. Player Suspensions, and League Strikes will be handed. Please play the game against your opponent without the need to take advantage of the games CPU/AI.
  • Added 12/30/12 Squib Kicking: Because the A.I. of the receiving team does not react to ball appropriately during a Squib Kick due to a Gaming Glitch. Squib Kicking will be limited to where the Kicking Team will only be allowed to kick the ball short & straight ahead. The Kicking Team is NOT allowed to recover the kick. If this happens, the Kicking Team must punt the ball back to the receiving team on the very next play. No Exceptions! For Onside Kicking Rules, see below.
  • Onside Kicking is allowed anytime. However, playing mind games with your opponent by switching to onside formation, to kicking formation is NOT ALLOWED. Stop wasting your time. Please note that using the "Game Flow " option on the receiving end will automatically pick onside formation just in case your opponent wants to play mind games with you


Playing the CPU / AI (Computer)
  • If you are playing the CPU as your opponent during the week. You are allowed to play the CPU one (1) time each Week. I will keep tabs on everyone that plays the CPU during the week. This is against the rules, and will serve as a 1st warning. If you commit the same violation the 2nd time, your QB, top offesnive, and top defensive player will be suspended up to 2 games. See picture below for example.
  • Due date for each week is every 7 Days. If you play the CPU this week. You may play them anytime before the due date. You are NOT allowed to pad stats with a particular player against the CPU. This prevents that player, and owner skewing stats for League MVP. Player Suspensions & League Strikes are in effect. Please treat the CPU as if they are a human opponent.
  • Playing the CPU more than one (1) time in my humble opinion is considered cheating. There should be no excuse if you have lost connection in the game because when you're playing the CPU, there should be NO lag and no internet connection to a human opponent. YOU ARE EXPECTED TO FINISH THE GAME vs. THE CPU regardless what the outcome is.
  • There will be NO CPU fill ins with any existing owners.
  • Another reminder when you play the CPU as your opponent during the week. Please play the CPU as if you're playing a "human" opponent. You cannot abuse the CPU, or treat it as a contest who can score the most points in a game. I will look at each game stats, and if I see anything out of the ordinary. Your players may be suspended the following week. Again, use Sportsmanship and treat the CPU as if you're playing a human opponent.


Game Disconnects/Pausing
  • You are not allowed to quit or disconnect your game!! Youíre opponent should not be running up the score if they are up 30 points or more in the 4th qtr. Be a man and take a loss. Everyone here will have their bad days.
  • If the game disconnects/freezes up and youíre winning the game 17-10 for example in the 3rd qtr. You have the following (2) options for example; You and your opponent need to either (A) replay the entire game starting at 0-0, or (B) start the game over by running the clock down to the 3rd qtr with the same score 17-10. When the game is disconnected, and you have an option screen where you have the following option to choose either (A) "Quit, and Count Game", or (B) "Quit, and Don't Count Game". PLEASE wait for your opponent and communicate via PSN, thread posts, PMs, or Text. DO NOT select any option until both of your have agreed how you want to approach this issue. Remember, please communicate with your opponent before making your own conclusion. If this rule is broken. It will be a strike to that owner.
  • I understand that there can be lag at times. It's very frustrating for both owners, but please remember that lag, or some lag is part of the game. I really can't make decisions during your game, but if both of you are experiencing some lagging issues during your game. You and your opponent must communicate to resolve this issue whether it's playing later on, or starting over. Both of you need to be the judge on this one.
  • Pausing Rule Added 9/17/12: If your opponent pauses, don't immediately resume the game. Give your opponent some time. We all have non-madden responsibilities (wife, kids, parents,.. etc) and/or emergencies that may need our attention. If your opponent is gone for an excessive amount of time, then contact the Commissioner immediately. If you are unable to get in contact with the commissioner then you have the right to quit the game. The game will need to be restarted from the same spot in the game just like there was a disconnect.


Discipline & Suspensions
  • There will be a 2 strike policy. Any rule that's broken the first time. I will suspend your QB, your other top Offensive player, AND your top Defensive player for 2 games.
  • The 2nd time you break any rule(s), I will determine if there will be any further extensions to Player suspensions or whether you will booted off of the league completely.
  • Please remember that I can't police everyone, and every single game. If you feel that there's something wrong. You need to contact me.


Time Away / Vacation
  • It is your duty to contact Me, and your opponent that you're going out of town, or you won't be able to play your game during that week. If you don't contact me or your opponent. You will set to Auto-Pilot so your opponent can play the CPU, OR the game will be simmed.



Internet / Network Trouble

  • If you're having trouble with your home network, and you can't play for a week or so. Please contact me directly and you will be set to Auto-Pilot so your opponent(s) will play against you as the CPU until you get your network at home resolved.
