    Who's ready for some football???
    The 2nd season of Quality Simulation Football is officially underway and week one is now open for business! I want to thank everyone for completing all the tasks that were required to get us to this point in a timely fashion! As always I want to give a BIG thank you to Doug and Michael for all of their hard work and dedication to get things going for Madden 15. We once again have a fantastic group of owners, and I have no doubt that this is going to be a great year of Madden football here in The QI

    As I said, week one is now open and the deadline to get your week one games played is Monday 9/8/14 @ Midnight EST.

    REMEMBER: Game recaps for any divisional games are required and must be posted by the winner in the Game Summaries & Team News forum. Of course recaps of non-divisional games are much appreciated as well!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As we begin, I wanted to address a couple of topics:

    GAME SCHEDULING

    It is an ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT that EVERYONE uses the Game Scheduling forum to schedule games with your opponents.

    While everyone is encouraged to use YIM, a league requirement, for direct communication; you still MUST post in the scheduling forum. This also goes for the use of GroupMe, texts, e-mails, PMs, whatever; no other form of communication is an acceptable substitute for posting in the forum. Even if it's simply to inform league management when a game is scheduled to be played, you MUST post in the scheduling forum.

    This is something that we will be monitoring very closely, and anyone not doing their part could be subject to disciplinary action.

    FRANCHISE SETTINGS

    The franchise settings can be found in the League Rules thread.

    Everyone should now be aware that due to issues with desyncs (disconnects), for the time being we will require that ALL owners play with the following "Team Settings"; all owners must turn Kick Aiming Arc & Camera Toggle to ON and Defensive Graphics to FULL. If they fix the desync issue, we will lift this requirement.

    All other "Team Settings" (ball hawk, heat seeker, switch assist, etc) are up to each individual owner. These are user specific settings and are at each individual owner's discretion on whether to use them or not.

    ROSTER REQUIREMENTS & FREE AGENCY

    There are a handful of teams that still do not meet the league roster requirements. Doug has addressed that issue HERE. If you are mentioned in that post, get your roster fixed BEFORE you play your week one game! Again, teams are only permitted to sign the LOWEST RATED player available to meet roster requirements.

    ***NO OTHER FREE AGENTS MAY BE SIGNED IN WEEK 1***

    Upon completion of week one, regular season free agency will open on the traditional first come, first serve basis starting in week 2.

    DEPTH CHARTS

    Everyone please make sure your depth charts are set up appropriately. The computer loves to put players in positions that we don't allow (LB at DE, CB at S, etc). Everyone is expected to be in compliance starting with their week 1 game and going forward.

    To make everything crystal clear, we have a list of ALL allowable depth chart substitutions by position (click button):

      • 1: FB
      • 2: FB, TE, HB
      • 3: FB, TE, HB
        • USE OF HB OR TE AT FB POSITION SHOULD BE USING SPARINGLY, IF AT ALL, AND ONLY FOR BACK-UP PURPOSES
    • WR

      • 4: CB
      • 5: CB (MAY BE A BACK UP SAFETY, IF ONLY 4 CORNERBACKS ON ROSTER)
    • FS
      • 1: FS, SS
      • 2: FS, SS

    That is the full list of allowable substitutions via the depth chart. Anything else would require an off-season position change request.

    LIVE STREAMING

    As was previously announced; live streaming of ALL GAMES, via Twitch, is REQUIRED in The Q. All owners' Twitch IDs can be found in the Owner Contact List.

    Again, live streaming is NOT A SUBSTITUTE for required game recaps.

    STADIUM REBUILDS / TEAM RELOCATION

    Stadiums rebuilds and team relocation WILL NOT be permitted until SEASON 2 at the earliest. We will announce the parameters/requirements for rebuilds and relocation at a later date.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With that, I wish you all well as we embark on year two of The Q! Let's remember to be respectful at all times; have some fun and good luck everyone!
