    What I need is for User vs. User stats, what I am looking for is for people to run games using the following settings and leave the feedback here with the stats from the guy. I want to get the best settings for us possible and this is where I need help from people.

    1. All-Pro 10 min quarters 15 second accel clock Game speed Slow 30 threshold
    2. All-Pro 10 min quarters 20 second accel clock Game Speed Slow 15 Threshold
    3. All-Pro 10 min quarters 15 second accel clock Game Speed Normal 30 Threshold
    4. All-Pro 10 min quarters 20 second accel clock Game Speed Normal 15 Threshold

    This is to give me some data to compare and contract things to get the best settings possible for us. I really need everyone's help with this. I am ideally looking for about 60 plays per game each side roughly and need a pretty good balance on offense, 60/40 is fine but as close to a balanced offense would be great.

    When you complete a game please leave stats here and let me know what settings you have used, I'm looking for 5-6 games on each setting. (y)

    This is what I use in my CCM and I love it.. I think this is the best setting IMO, but I will still test the others for ya and leave feedback when I get a chance.

    I understand not being interested in it, but with the speed threshold low it is actually supposed to balance it out so that is why I need people to test it out so I would appreciate if you at least try it and not just completely rule it out (y)

    All Pro 10 min q, 15 second accel clock, Slow, Threshold 30

    Rams vs. Ravens

    Game Time: 48 minutes

    Stats:
    Ravens Passing 29 attempts
    Ravens Runs 24 attempts
    Ravens Total Offense 357

    St. Louis Passing 24 attempts
    St Louis Rushing 18 attempts
    Rams Total Offense 268

    I ideally want to give teams around 60 plays a game, now I was close with 53 plays, Rams had 42 so the discrepancy wasn't that bad, I felt the speed overall was okay and not too fast or to slow.

    FYI NFC West, good luck with Stephen Jackson dude is a beast to try and take down.

    GG SmashMouthFB33 appreciate the help, and can I get your thoughts and opinions on the game? Settings wise that is and play number and all that. (y)

    Everything seemed pretty good overall...the speed of the game was good in my opinion...play number can be a little deceiving in my opinion because I felt like I had my opportunities I just didn't capitalize when I had the ball...threw three picks and that has nothing to do with the game...you had more sustained drives than I did so that helped your play total. I liked it...not sure this helps...I will say that I like threshold 30 better than 15

    GG kdpnutter...I will continue to improve and PM with anything you think I might be doing that is against the rules please!!

    I will try and test these out today. Normal game speed just doesn't feel right to me, so I'll work on trying out the other two.

    I realize some don't like some other settings but I need them to be tested to see in regards to it. It is for a good reason I am testing each of them out for the feel of all of them and trying to get some finalized settings and some have said they feel that normal speed with a low threshold speed works well so I need people to test this out. Just as the clock speed and things I just need them tested it doesn't mean they will be sticking around. (y)

    Haven't tested them all yet but I prefer option #2 thus far. Possibly option #4 as well. In regards to game speed - when playing someone with whom you have a good connection slow seems to be the way to go. However, when you are stuck in a laggy game, slow almost makes the game feel like slow motion. I prefer the 20 second accel clock versus 15 because if the ball is not staying in bounds or there are a lot of incompletions the game will seem to go on forever lol... And the longer the game goes in real time the higher the chance that either player will be randomly disconnected from EA's servers which myself and others have been noticing.

    15 second takes the play clock down to 15 seconds, the 20 takes it down to 20 so the 15 makes it faster (y)

    Ravens vs. Bears

    Settings: All-Pro, 10 min, 15 second accel clock, Speed Slow, Threshold 0

    Final Score
    Ravens 28
    Bears 24

    Stats:

    Bears Total Offensive: 323 yards
    Ravens Total Offensive: 333 yards

    Ravens Pass Attempts: 18
    Ravens Rushing Attempts 22

    Total Plays: 40

    Bears Rushing Attempts: 26
    Bears Passing Attempts: 19

    Total Plays: 45

    First Downs:
    Ravens 8
    Bears 11

    Rushing Yards:
    Bears 153
    Ravens: 100

    Passing Yards:
    Ravens 233
    Bears 170

    Time of Possession:
    Bears 27:38
    Ravens 12:22

    Overall I am feeling better and better about this set of settings and sliders, as I felt both teams had an equal chance with the Bears, the Bears had two really long consuming drives and a couple of mine I hit a few big plays, I wasn't happy with my run game after Ray Rice got hurt with a Broken Collarbone in the blizzard. Overall since I have 0 stats from others this appears to be the settings that we will run on.

    GG GDip besides the couple big plays I had, I felt it played pretty even across the board giving both sides pretty much two possessions a quarter except for the really long drive you had which ate up a lot of clock but gave fair opportunity to both to win the game. (y)

    I honestly could use people's help in this department and post some stats, because otherwise, when I leave the settings at this after having been the only one to try any different settings and no one giving me different data to go off of, then we will go with what I deem is best as myself and RadarRider both have agreed on these are pretty solid in our minds but we are trying to give you the chance to find a set that will work well for you but without any feedback then we will go with what I have presented here.

    It takes maybe 5 mins to post stats after a game guys, please help me out here because it's just like presidential elections, if you don't vote, then you got no right to bitch if you don't like them (y)

    LB Fitted, I saw you challenged me to a game just as I started my game with kdpnutter.

    as for the games settings, i agree that they felt just fine. The game wasn't too fast and it wasn't too slow, with both of us using a good chunk of pass/run. Overall, probably the best user game I've been a part of to date. I still think their needs to be some way to make INT's less-easy. I point to that INT by Julius Peppers over his head with the back to the QB. But it's much better than NCAA in that respect, so I guess I can't expect everything to be perfect:)

    That seems a little light on the amount of plays...I think the average NFL team runs about 63 plays/gm. So you guys ran about 2/3 of that, but you were also relatively run-heavy for this day's NFL.

    It was more run heavy, also the long two drives he had chewed up a lot of clock so that took a lot of the plays away, if others feel that the 15 second run off is not enough time in the game we can go back to 20 if that works better for people. That's why I was asking people to attempt the different settings so I can get a feel for what works best for us.

    Iv'e been playing games with others through Madden's Community of Rookie Symposium which has the default settings. I havent had any complaints about gameplay or stats. Our stats on both sides have been pretty realistic thus far.
