    Preseason SoCo Tourney?

    Just a thought, would anyone be interested in running a preseason tournament amongst ourselves? Since, there will probably be a week or so between release and our league starting, this could be something to tide us over until we really kickoff.

    I was thinking something along the lines of three four team brackets with each conference, then the winners would do a round robin sort of deal.

    I was actually about to post something similar to this but we can run with this. Our commish was thinkin' about a test league as well.

    We'll see where we as a whole would like to go with that I guess.

    I'm down, only I would rather not have to use the same teams as we are in the dynasty. I'm like Drunken, I wanna try a lot of different play books and personnel.

    If people want to use different teams, then we can scrap the whole conference bracket idea and come up with something else.

    Plus, I think a preseason tourney would help in tuning our slider sets.

    Guys I'm going to have to pull out of this for the following reason:

    -Time Zone- Its in my best interests to wait until the season starts before I have to stay up past midnight or later to play. Plus I'll be doing sliders and that takes longer than ya think, lol. I'll still be active as hell on the forums and will still play anyone whenever their free but can't do that on a structured arena at this time. Stayin' up until 1am most game days and having to wake up at 6am takes a toll:)

    i suggest everyone do an offline od or start an online one to use the new features on the ea site to get used to it so we hit the ground running. Feel free to run with a tourney if you want, i'm just gonna try to get into the game didn't play the demo much.

    I can start an OD when i get the game at midnight. Let me know who would be interested. The main focus would not be gameplay, but new recruiting, dynasty wire stories, uploading pics and vids, etc.

    Games would be simmed to focus on the new stuff except playing a couple qtrs and supersimming the rest to get highlights.

    Let me know...

    Onaradio count me in if its just simming. I joined the TF tourney like a month ago and forgot all about it, can't refuse to play somethin' in the league and then play that.

    This was the route I was going to take.

    As far as a tourney, not sure who all is still interested.
