You guys down for starting an online league? I for some reason have a hard time joining anyone of the online ones. I get an error message that says "This invitation can no longer be accepted" even when there are plenty of open spots.

Lets start a prive league with a draft? What do you guys think? Could be fun.

thanks guys, sorry to say as soon as I made this thread I had to leave town on short notice.

I'll join one of yours instead when I return home tomorrow.

when i tried to look at my league yesterday to see if anyone had joined, it was saying that i had no league. when i tried searching (i searched for mine and tallow's) neither one showed up. i'm betting problems on EA's side (battlefield was also laggy as hell today, for what its worth)

go_fins
08-19-2008, 09:54 AM
me and my friend were able to join. just do a search for finh and you'll see both. there were five people so far. I'm the Jags because my favorite Dolphins were taken already:boohoo:

Birdman
08-19-2008, 10:59 AM
Yeah I got in (LCMB2012) in mac's. Sent in my draft order, the league is too large though should have been 12, doubt we'll get 32 in there.

maccachief
08-19-2008, 06:24 PM
that's just the max users. i can start it with as many or as few teams sign up

Birdman
08-19-2008, 08:27 PM
well lets make the cutoff in like 6 days? I wanna start :D

maccachief

I wanna join....are there still spots?
there should be...unless a lot of people signed up recently

i know ztfan said he couldn't join until saturday...so whaddya say about starting the league on sunday? cool with everybody?

Birdman
08-20-2008, 10:12 AM
Sunday is good here.

burger13
08-20-2008, 10:29 AM
cool with me. i'll try and sign up this evening.

go_fins
08-20-2008, 10:54 AM
Sunday sounds good

BARF
08-20-2008, 08:28 PM
sunday is awesome what time? and i might have some more people to join also

BARF
08-20-2008, 08:29 PM
how many people have joined and what teams have been taken thus far

Birdman
08-20-2008, 09:59 PM
I think there are 6 or 7 people, I have the Stealers and someone took the Dolphins but were doing a Draft so teams arent really important.

BARF
08-20-2008, 10:33 PM
oh its going to be a fantasy draft also at what time will the draft be

Birdman
08-21-2008, 02:16 AM
you put the order you want rank your players and the positions that you wanna draft in order

maccachief
08-21-2008, 07:51 AM
you put the order you want rank your players and the positions that you wanna draft in order
yeah..it's pretty much the same as an offline fantasy draft

SwimminInIndy
08-22-2008, 01:00 PM
So is it like a live draft? Or do you just rank and the puter gives you your team. I MUCH rather have a live thing if it's allowed. I am also going to join today probably. Do you have to play at certain times and all that? Can somebody give me a rundown? Thanks!

Birdman
08-22-2008, 03:12 PM
yea i think we should set up play times here so nobody gets confused. But you cant do a live draft/

maccachief
08-23-2008, 02:59 PM
yeah..unfortunately you just submit your draft order and the cpu does it for you

as of now...we have 7 teams in the league. 1 more would be nice so we have an even amount of teams

and for what it's worth...i can normally play anytime on weekends, and between 7-10 pm EST on weekdays

Birdman
08-23-2008, 06:37 PM
common guys 1 more

Birdman
08-24-2008, 02:04 PM

:boohoo:

maccachief
08-24-2008, 05:10 PM
the draft went through today, but people can still sign up. i guess the game will auto draft players for them since they won't here for the draft. if we do get after-draft signups, help them out a little if you're stacked at certain positions (for instance, i have LT, willie parker, and marion barber at RB, so i could help them out by trading them one of my non-LT RB's)

also..there is no "schedule" as far as i can tell for the league. we just have 11 games to play. if you see someone online, invite them to a league game (you can see if anyone is online by checking the "league standings" menu i think). you just have to play 11 games. not sure if there are any other restrictions (ie: i don't know if you necessarily have to play against different people...i wonder if 2 teams could just play 11 games against each other and that would count...)

anyway, look forward to playing

Birdman
08-24-2008, 05:43 PM
well lets see who the teams are and set up a schedule? So there is no chaos or I dident have anyone to play crying going on. Anyone else agree?

maccachief
08-24-2008, 07:40 PM
fine by me

as of right now...we have 7 teams, with 11 games to play, so that means each team plays each other at least once

so if i play the other 6 teams once, that's 6 games down with 5 games left to play

i can try to work out a "schedule" of sorts, where everyone plays everyone else at least once, but if someone else wants to give it a shot...by all means...be my guest

patinthehat
08-25-2008, 12:33 AM
yeah that would be cool. set it up :)

go_fins
08-25-2008, 08:20 AM
cool, I'm available weekdays from 8:00 to 11:00 and weekends pretty much all day, just need to know in advance.

Birdman
08-25-2008, 09:40 PM
Ill be on in 15 mins if anyone wants to play a leauge game. Get at me in the GAME

burger13
08-26-2008, 04:05 PM
is there no schedule? i was in the league and didn't see where you would get a game....there wasn't a league lobby or anything? how does it work?

btw - every player on every team is 95+ not sure how much fun that's going to be.

maccachief
08-26-2008, 07:39 PM
the way to find a game is you have to go to the league standings menu, then just look to see if there is a player in the league online at the time, and just invite them to a league game

and i like the fact that all the players are rated so high on every team. it's more about who is better...not all about who has the better players

patinthehat
08-26-2008, 08:04 PM
i'll be on tonight (tuesday) from 10pm on.

who wants to setup at game??

cool thanks.

I can respect that. it's just that I kind of like the strategy part of the game. what weakness can I exploit? How am i going to defend his superstar? that kind of stuff. if everyone is a superstar, it kinda takes away from that. either way, I'm gonna finish near the bottom, so it's not a big deal. :up:

patinthehat
08-26-2008, 08:27 PM
hey burger since you're a site artist the person who "wins" the league should be given a little banner as a prize.

something that says like "finheaven madden 09 360 league #1 winner" or something to that effect.

i know i'm not winning, but it could definitely be a cool piece of flare for whoever does :up:

Birdman
08-26-2008, 09:58 PM
i'll be on tonight (tuesday) from 10pm on.

who wants to setup at game??
Hey im probably gonna be on around 1020 if you wanna wait around for me, id love to lose my second game in a row :boohoo:

maccachief
08-27-2008, 09:34 AM
to whoever asked me to a game last night...sorry for the no-response. i work 3rd shift (11 pm - 7 am, EST) so i was at work at the time, so my roommate was probably watching a movie or something while signed in, unknowingly, to my xbox profile

i should be around between 6 pm and 10 pm today though if someone wants to play

Birdman
08-27-2008, 10:43 AM
yeah that was me. i might be able to get a game on with you later today ill check if ur IN madden when I log in.

patinthehat
08-27-2008, 06:17 PM
i'll be on at 8 or so tonight if anyone is down.

i'm 0-2...both games ending at the last second. awesome close games though.

Birdman
08-27-2008, 06:34 PM
How many teams make playoffs?

2-4? or all? Should we hold a vote?

I'd love to have 6 out of 7 teams in there with the first round being teams going for the wildcard spot but I dont think we have 6 actives only 5 ;\

Birdman
08-28-2008, 09:26 AM
Alot of people have been saying running in madden is too hard or impossible. Well yesterday I broke the rushing record with Adrian Peterson, 301 yards :woot:
Here's some highlights of my game vs Patinthehat.

Last one is a passing play.
Scored 63 points and got to 1st place in the league last night.

go_fins
08-28-2008, 11:30 AM
do we have a schedule yet. I've played againts patinthehat and VasDeferens316, I'll try to be on tonight and would like to play someone different.

Birdman
08-28-2008, 12:10 PM
Ill play you? Are you system? I'll probly be on around 930-1030. Sound good?

go_fins
08-28-2008, 12:54 PM
9:30 sounds good, where's everyone else that signed up? common guys, hopefully get more people the next time.
wait a minute, the Dolphins game is today, so I'll probably be pusing the game time back a little...

Birdman
08-28-2008, 12:58 PM
i know pat and vas def are active so thats 4 out of 7 and maschef said hed be on alot during the weekend so he'll catchup.

maccachief
08-29-2008, 08:52 AM
yeah...sorry for not being there much this week. i usually play a lot on the weekends, mostly during the afternoon since, usually, none of my other gaming friends are on at that time

Birdman
08-29-2008, 04:37 PM
Played Maccacheif just now, great game.
Here's me taking it to the house 72 yards with M. Jones-Drew. Sick Juke halfway through the run (:

maccachief
08-30-2008, 01:08 AM
yeah..it was a good game...i made too many stupid mistakes

also...i was looking at the league standings after our game, and under the games played column, your number was 10, while everyone else's was 11. does this mean we have to play one another 11 times? if so...want me to make a new league?

patinthehat
08-30-2008, 08:09 AM
yeah i think that is what it means...

3 would be the max in my eyes. god 11 would take a year. haha.

i'm fine with it either way though.

Birdman
08-30-2008, 11:25 AM
i dont think thats the case. whoever had the ten just playes 1 game less all season.

maccachief
08-30-2008, 01:06 PM
well...the thing is...you were showing 11 before we played, then afterwards you showed 10

if someone else who has played more games can check as well that'd be nice. that way i, or someone else, can go ahead and make another league with fewer games to play

Birdman
08-30-2008, 01:42 PM
we just have to have even teams with active people and their will be no problem.

maccachief
08-31-2008, 11:14 PM
i hate to do this guys...but i kinda have to. i'm gonna have to give over "ownership" of the FH2 league to someone else. i didn't realize my live account ends later this week, and money is kinda tight right now so i won't be able to re-up my subscription :(. really sucks cause XBL is how i keep up with most of my friends...but anyway...

once i get my money situation right, i'll be able to re-up my sub and maybe make/join another league if there is still interest

so...who wants GM status for my leage?
