    Gentlemen, I saw this poll over in the TLY forum (thanks Randiesel75) and thought it would be a good idea to gauge who in our league may be getting the game early with the Season Ticket. I, myself, will be doing so in order to be able to make preparations for the league online. It would be nice to find out who else will be purchasing the early download not only so that we can get some test games in, but also, so that we can get the online franchise setup how it needs to be so that we can hit the ground running when 8/28/12 comes along. Just a heads up, team selection is slated to take place on 8/30/12 (Thursday); two days following the game's physical release.


    Please reply if your answer is "YES" so that I know who will be getting the game early. Thanks!

    How are you going to handle team selection?

    We hold a random lottery with each of the owners' names in a pot to determine a team drafting order. That will take place once we have all 32 owners decided. Once the lottery is held and the team draft order is finalized, we hold a team draft a couple of days following the game physical release date to allow owners to test out teams and see what cap space will be for each team.

    I doubt I get it this year. I will be going on vacation August 18th and not returning until August 26th so would be pointless to pay for it and play just 1 day before release.

    Maybe. Need to check the cost of it first. I only buy one EA game a year so I dont knoe if it is worth it.

    I had it last year...I couldn't resist. I have a girl/friend coming in from Europe during those three days, so b/c of that and I won't be playing enough during those three days to warrant the purchase. I will say this, once I purchased it last year...I never used it again lol. I got it strictly for Madden. This year with the salary and other fun features...I already feel the urge to get it again...I'm trying to fight it.

    A definite yes, I won't be able to take off work on the 28th, so I will probably spend the weekend playing Madden.

    This is the best way to determine teams, IMO. It has worked great so far.

    Then again, I picked 7th last year. :D

    He deserves the #1 pick for sure.

    He can have the best odds to score a great pick this year, and he will still get the #31st pick. Talk about shit luck...

    How weighted is the lottery? Is that info public?

    I think CHUNKNESS should be the one to answer this, but from what I know it's not that drastic. I've already done a few mock lottery drafts and it's really open for everyone. I've seen new guys (unnamed) get as high #3, but of course as low as #32.

    everyone gets one ball for each year they've been part of the league, up to five. so all newcomers like yourself will have one, and any returning members will have as few as two and as many as five. yes, the odds are better for the tenured members, but as TJ pointed out, the newcomers will have opportunities as well.

    You have a program Doug? Curious to do a few runs to see if I get between 25-32. We all know it will happen.

    I remember when the Collector's Edition of Madden came out and I was standing in line and a GIRL asks me why I was buying it over the regular edition. So I proceeded to fill her in on all of the added features the Collector's Edition had over her "regular" edition. She says, "Yea, but you'll probably never use any of that stuff." She was right. Extra $10 for nothing...lol I don't even know where that game is!!!
    So, no more extra money laid out for Madden. I'll wait for the release and might get it the 27th if my contact in Newark comes thru again...

    This is why women and video games don't mix.
