Preseason 47 FA & Schedule

Preseason Schedule is as follows:

  • Advance to Pre-Week 2: 11:59 PM Eastern Friday 01/11
  • Advance to Pre-Week 3: 8 PM Eastern Saturday 01/12
  • Advance to Pre-Week 4: 10 PM Eastern Saturday 01/12
  • Advance to Regular Season: 11:59 PM Eastern Saturday 01/12

Do not sign ANY FA on Friday! Make sure to cut down your roster to 63 (53 plus 10 practice squad players) by Saturday night.

If you have roster minimums you need to fill contact an admin and they will supply you with a really bad player from FA (no handouts, so don’t think just because you don’t have a punter you get the best in FA).

FA Rules

We will NOT be doing a FA draft this preseason. Instead, we will bid on players. The best contract gets the player!

This will take into account contract length, bonus amount and salary amount. Winning contracts will be posted Friday night at 11:59 PM Eastern. These players will be reserved to that team until advance to the regular season – if not signed they’re fair game week 1 of the regular season.

Activity Bonuses

In addition, we’re rewarding everybody who played at least 14 games last season (and did not miss any other events) with a single player bump from normal to quick development. Please alert an admin of your choice and we’ll make the change. Full list of eligible people and selected players is below.

  • Brown (Camp)
  • Titans (Bolivian) – RG Dixon Bryant
  • Seahawks (Mamba) – CB Roosevelt Bradshaw
  • Eagles (Phenom) – CB Avonte Maddox
  • Raiders (Rain) – LG Jatavious Graves
  • Steelers (Violent) – CB Artie Burns
  • Broncos (War) – LE Duncan Duckworth

This is incentive to get active and stay active!

Offseason 46 Schedule

Congrats to Warren on his 20-17 EOTP Madden Bowl XLVI victory over Ismith!

We’ll tentatively be following the below schedule for the offseason. I will be tagging everybody in chat to update you on the schedule as we advance.

If everybody completes their re-signings quickly we’ll be able to advance to free agency early.

RE-SIGNINGS

We will be advancing past re-signs Tuesday (01/08) night at 11:59 PM Eastern.

FREE AGENCY

We’ll be doing free agency a little different this season. Make sure to follow the below rules or your will be directed to release any players you sign:

  • The maximum contract length allowed is five years
  • The maximum bid amount is 150 points
  • The minimum bid amount is 30 points

Get your bids in early and often leading up to the first advance if you’re really worried about losing out on players – many high profile players now sign on the first FA advance.

All listed advances are within 15 minutes of the posted time to avoid blatant sniping.

  • First Advance: Wednesday (01/09) 8 PM Eastern
  • Second Advance: Wed. 10 PM Eastern
  • Third Advance: Wed. 11:59 PM Eastern

ROOKIE DRAFT

The 2020 NFL Draft will be held at 9:00 PM Eastern on Thursday Jan. 10.

The first round I will be giving people 5 minutes per pick if they want it to negotiate trades. If you want to pick quicker feel free. Each round after that I will skip people who either A) did not show for their first round pick or B) did not RSVP for the draft and are not active in the chat at the time. Rounds 2-7 will proceed at normal pick clock.

Remember that all trades require approval from the committee so be prepared for late trades to take some time to be approved.

Changes Coming to EOTP Madden

As most of you are aware, we’ve taken a few days to re-evaluate our rules and league membership since the Super Bowl was played.

The big news is we have re-written much of the rules in a much needed update. Every member must read and agree to the new rules. I would recommend taking the time now to go over the rules thoroughly and indicate in the announcements thread of Discord that you understand and agree to abide by the guidelines.

We have also removed some inactive users and freed up spots for new users. Coordinating with the shutdown of Laces Out Football League, we will be bringing over a few trustworthy people for EOTP.

I’ll have a further update on the offseason schedule as soon as everybody has indicated they have read the rules and our new members have joined.

Preseason 46 FA Draft & Schedule

Preseason Schedule is as follows:

A FEW NOTES

Regression Has Been Updated

Seeing as we’re in the playoffs and development regression has already happened, it’s about time our revised regression system was posted.

To see the full specifics and to submit regression review please see the Player Regression page.

As a rough overview, development regression now happens as soon as the season ends – most of you should have noticed this by now by looking at your roster and specific player cards. These regressions will be immediately available for review!

The typical ratings regression will happen as soon as we advance past the Super Bowl and may be a shock for some people as it’s much more aggressive than in Madden 18 in some areas.

We will be reviewing both rating regression and development regression. I will leave the regression page to fully explain it as everyone will need to submit properly if they want to have their players reviewed.

Draft Pick Trades Required Before Start

In earlier posts I referenced trades that required everybody’s cooperation to get draft picks on the correct teams. The reason for this is that EA did not process several trades properly for rosters and all trades since the NFL Draft were completed with players but NOT with the draft picks (ex. Khalil Mack is a Bear but the draft picks are still on the Bears).

To fix this, we’ll need everybody’s cooperation. Below is a list of trades to be completed. Whatever team is receiving a pick in those trades will need to sign a low overall player from free agency and send a trade in game to the other team for the correct pick.

I will not allow anybody who doesn’t complete a trade for their team to make any trades, so the quicker you can get it done the quicker you’ll get back to normal.

Please notify me as these are completed so that I can update it.

Completed trades are in bold.

EOTP Madden 19 Franchise Start & FA Draft

Teams are set and invites have gone out! I’ll keep this short as we’re mostly here for the FA Draft. Scroll down for info on the FA draft and full results – this page will be updated as players are picked – but bear with me as we cover a few things.

Please review the rules as they’ve been updated for Madden 19.

We will also need a few people’s help in getting draft picks moved to the proper teams. Preseason Week 1 doesn’t allow user trades, so we couldn’t process them ourselves. We’ll try to simplify it as much as possible but expect everyone’s cooperation.

I fully encourage everybody to play their preseason games, but understand a compressed schedule may mean people don’t have time to play.

Preseason Schedule

  • Preseason Week 1 Advance: Thursday 10/04 11:59 PM Eastern
  • Preseason Week 2 Advance: Friday 10/05 11:59 PM Eastern
  • Preseason Week 3 Advance: Saturday 10/06 11:59 PM Eastern
  • Preseason Week 4 Advance: Sunday 10/07 11:59 PM Eastern

At that point we will return to the normal 48 hour advance schedule. We will not wait for people to join up, so I advise you join as quickly as possible.

Franchise Start FA Draft

The FA draft order is based off an admin group vote on the worst to best teams, however the order will snake each round.

Picks will advance as soon as people start selecting players. I will not start skipping players quickly until tomorrow night at 9 PM Eastern, however if you’re up for the draft and are unresponsive for an extended period of time during the day you will be skipped.

The solution? Send me a list of players you want in the FA draft and if you’re not around we’ll go off of that for your picks.

EOTP Madden 19 Starting Up

Hey everybody, we’ve been quiet on here as we evaluate Madden and watch what’s going on in the NFL, but it’s about time we got started up.

The league has been created and everybody will be getting invites shortly. We’ll need to adjust a few teams’ draft picks for trades that EA did not process properly (as they do every year). I appreciate that everybody cooperates with this as it will make the process go much quicker.

We’ll be doing a free agent draft to start up – I’ll post more information about the draft as we get everybody into the league. I still wanted to go over a few things for this Madden that we’re going to be doing to reward activity and loyalty to the league.

First off, we’re going to let people adjust their rosters a bit by giving them the option of making five of their players quick development instead of normal. One player who is already quick on the roster may be made star as well. Please send me a message with your list and bear in mind I will not allow you to change your mind later, so maybe take a few days to make sure that’s who you want to boost.

We’ll be announcing other bonuses as we move along, but foremost among my concerns right now is getting everybody in the league, starting up the FA draft and getting moving towards roster cut downs and week 1.

More updates are coming, stay tuned!
