    Gentlemen,

    Just wanted to start a thread to manage everyones expectations when it comes to Madden 17. There are quite a few changes in the next cycle, from what I am reading. A smooth transition should be easy if we all prepare well. "Failure to plan is planning to fail" lol

    What I expect to happen:
    - continue current Madden 16 as long as possible (if we are not ready for a 17 season, we could run a tournament to time us over, or stick with 16 during transition)
    - Madden 17 will have a "one week old" patch we should wait for
    - should be decent slider recommendations out prior to us starting
    - run a couple of seasons "dry runs" to work out the logistics of a sim season
    - compare the new release with our rules, and refine them
    - re-evaluate custom playbooks, etc.


    Anything else we need to think about?

    To bring everyone up to speed on user playbooks:
    Pros: Able to customize the plays you use and the ones you don't
    Able to set your own audibles
    Cons: The one person who used a custom playbook (against the rules) ran an exploitable wildcat toss play, ruining the sim experience.

    If people are varying their playcalling and not using "money" plays, in other words, following the H@W rules... Then we shouldn't have a problem with custom playbooks. However, there are sometimes a few bad apples out there who don't like to listen to rules... But in my opinion, these people will break the rules whether custom playbooks are allowed or not. Just my two cents.

    Unrelated to this, are we going to try and recruit more users for 17 so we have a full 32 team league?

    Yes, in my experience, the league will be full for 4 or 5 seasons, then start to loose members to real life or other priorities. The bast case scenario is a 32 user league as long as possible.

    Sorry I am firmly against custom play books. We tried to have the discussion once and the guy who illegally ran one pretty much showed the massive flaw in allowing them.
