    Ok, so who's going to get it first? Or does anyone already have it?

    I bought mine online, and it's being mailed to me. I paid extra to have it shipped quick... will I even get it tomorrow? Anyone ever done that?

    Tell us your Madden stories... I know antcap24 has a tournament tonight to try to get the game free, Mr. Super Bowl winner. Dude is good. Keller are you getting it at midnight? I used to do it every year, but won't be this year.

    I would normally be getting the game tonight. I always show up for the midnight release, BUT I got some very bad news today in regards to custom playbooks. I am so fed up with Madden that I am not even going to buy the game this year. I have gotten Madden every year since I was 16 years old (thats 10 years).

    EA has a monopoly on this shit and this is what happens when there is no competition. I have lost all respect for the people who make Madden and I will not buy the game until they get off their lazy asses and make the game better in all areas.

    So this tournament I went to last night...

    More players were accepted than orginally thought so they decided to have the tournament as 1- 6 min quarter game. 1 Timeout only to progress the games as fast as they could to get all the games in by midnight.

    I lose the coin toss, and the rest was history. Sorry excuse for a "tournament".

    So I decide to stay up all night playing , and I must say thsi game plays totally different than the past version. Ryan takes FOREVER to release the ball and I am taking more sacks than I have ever done. The receivers do not break out of their cuts the way they used to so timing routes are harder to complete. Zones on defense seem to work better and LBs seem to play the middle with better success.

    Running the ball for me has been hit or miss. Either I have absolutely nothing and get stuffed or I break a run for the distance. I feel like I have a Barry Sanders stat line. -1, -2, 35, -1, -3, 45...

    Catching the ball in traffic has been an issue for my players as I seem to drop way too many passes as I get hit.

    These things are not complaints by any measure. I am glad they evened up the defense to catch up a little to the offense this year. I am sure in a week or so, we all will start finding routes/ Plays that we like, but when comparing things from last year, many of the plays I used do not pan out the same way.

    I had a real fun game with Fuzzylogic last night which I hope starts a nice rivarly in the NFC South. He has a nice 1-2 punch with Williams and Stewart, and Beason is a beast when it comes to stuffing the run.

    So all in all, I am pleased with the challenge of having to recreate in order to have success this year. I am glad it was not just a roster update on a new disc.

    A fun first session... 2 games ... 2.5 total quarters. They still haven't fixed that part.

    1st game... guy gets stopped on 4th down on first set of downs, I score, guy throws a pick on 4th and 15, I score, he quits.

    2nd game... guy is Vicking it up scrambling... he gets up 14-0. I get a feel for how to play him, and it's 14-10 at half, but then his connection falters.

    2-0, i guess...

    I really like the feel of the game. I think slower def players that are solid players will be more valuble this year but time will tell. Now engaging a ball carrier allows you to get a huge hit in some cases because of the new collision system.

    I'm betting it will be closer to the regular season opener, when a good roster update comes out.

    Is it myleaguemangager.net .com by itself didn't work for me. and .com.au was the first result on Google, but it didn't look or sound right.
