    Advance Rate

    We just wanted to get guys thoughts on this advance rate.

    Let me first say I was a 7 day advance guy for a long long time. I am very comfortable with 5 days, and I know that 2 or 3 days is too short and too much for me.

    I'd be willing to try 4, if the league wants to do that. So a Simple vote. 4 or 5 day advance rate.

    I say if we move to 4 let's wait to implement until the 2011 release. I think starting with a 4 day advance for the 2011 would be very appropriate.

    I'm all 4 the 4 day advance<------hehe.

    *While I don't oppose Frisk idea I actually think if we implement it some time this season it would be more beneficial. We could in essence have a trial run to see how people like it, or at least get used to the pace so next Madden we hit the ground running.

    Don't get me wrong I would love to get it going right now but I am afraid of guys getting burnt out with it being the end of the release. This would result in a failed attempt at a 4 day advance and we would scratch the idea for eternity. 90% of Madden leagues at this point in time have broken down or have slowed down extremely. I am happy with the way OMFL is currently progressing!

    moving to 4 for me is very boderlin … feels like I'm goin' to lose my mind
    You just keep on pushin' my love over the borderline

    Keep on pushin' me, baby
    Don't you know you drive me crazy

    I say we stay at 5. Theres already plenty of scheduling conflicts since only 1 person since year 1 has actually played me during the day on the weekend which is the best time for me. I just think moving down to 4 is going to up these conflicts.

    I have no room to talk since I have 3 kids and a currently dreading water business so I really have things I should get to with my time. That being said I would love it if we somehow could get 2 games in a week at some point. Would create a nice flow and seasons would take 2 months to complete, just me though maybe in the fall and winter when life sometimes seems to slow down for some.

    The more I think about it the current way is good also. I think the only reason I wanted more is so we could get more season's in.

    I refuse to lose owners over advance rate, thats for sure. with 5 days and starting a month and a half after the release we are still able to get 3 seasons in. There are more than the OMFL out there and more games than madden, so people being bored doesnt bother me all that much. I don't want to hurt us like Frisk said, I will only do this if everyone gives it a shot.

    BTW this is for next year and it will be a boards decision. Again, there are other leagues out there to fill time and other games that people play. We may do 4 days next year, but we do have to take in consideration that the OMFL is not just a 'play' league. What makes us different is that we have articles, podcast, interviews, write-ups, ect. If going to 4 days hampers that then we may stay with 5. We have to think big picture here. This will never be a faster than 4 day advance league and this will never be a 'play only' league. play only leagues are boring to me and not what the OMFL is about.

    I agree with Frisk...4 days is nice, for next season...personally, I think doing it now, especially with summer rolling in and work becoming busier for some of us...I think 4 is too much...yeah 24 hours earlier in the long run isn't a whole helluva lot, but in my opinion when I am balancing a girlfriend, work, helping my parents with shit, and personal time (which includes much needed sleep)...5 days is nice, gives me room to play with.

    If this vote is for next season only, I may rethink that I put 5...haha. I think we are adding a few new features such as the podcasts and stats...a bunch of new features that take time. Of course when Madden 11 comes out, I will be back to the college grind and will probably have a ton more time so 4 days won't be hard to get shit done in....

    Honestly, I look at a long advance rate like the interior of a car that is JUST not the right color. Sometimes it'll get to you and be bothersome. But in the over all it's not a deal breaker, if the overall package is worth the little bit of frustration. So it don't matter, really. I just have no life right now, so it's worse for me lol.
