    Week 10: Lions vs. Bills

    Just want to get my schedule up before we advance after these last few games.

    Monday (tonight): After advance till about 10 pm start time
    Tuesday: Anytime after 3:30 pm central time
    Wednesday: Anytime after 3:30 pm central time
    Thursday: Anytime after 3:30 pm central time
    Friday: Anytime after 3:30 pm central time

    FYI, I usually have PS3 connection issues from 6-10 pm central time because I live on a college campus. I can usually get on AIM though (laptop will connect for whatever reason). I can start as late as 10 pm central. If I have to start later, I can with advance notice.

    Let me know what might work for you. I know you have a game this week still.

    We'll see if we advance tonight. Personally, though, I would rather shoot for Tuesday after 4:30 pm central time. I didn't get a nap in today, so staying up late would be difficult, and with what I do at work (counting items to ensure accuracy of inventory), being sleepy is a bad idea. lol I just hope that my connection won't interfere.

    Due to connection issues (one on my end, one on EA), we are retrying tonight at 10 pm central time.

    Didn't work out today/tonight. We are going to retry Thursday afternoon. Not sure what the problem was but we had a bunch of lag. I will have my new internet coming on Thursday which should help us a bit. Hopefully we can find a time where Winuvas' campus isn't downloading porn by the bunch. I know how it is.

    Well, I try to shut down MY downloads so that way the connection is better. LOL

    I have found any non-N wireless connection has trouble getting on. My laptop is wireless N built in and usually has no trouble getting on. However, my fiancee's laptop, my other laptop, and the PS3 have wireless G and from 5-10 PM they have a 5% chance of connection.

    I hope that we can get a better connection and get a game in. I would start asking the league leadership about a possible sub for me, though, just in case that I cannot connect on Thursday and play a full game (since Thursday is technically last day). I'd rather be prepared for the worst and be able to play myself than not be able to play and you have no other alternative but a sim.

    I got dritsch to sub for me after I got disconnected around 4:20 pm central. They played to the 3rd quarter and got d/ced. Matt and I have chatted and agreed to a straight sim.

    This was my fault a bit I think, as I did not have updated rosters. Apologies to Matt and the league on that.

    Yeah, dritsch and I had a perfect, lag-free game going until late in the 3rd when I returned a kick for a TD which put me up 30-17. As soon as we lined up for the next play (following the kickoff) we just got a straight DC. I assume dritsch didn't have time to screw around--and neither did I after 2 hours of trying--so a straight sim is fine with me.

    Did you use default team playbooks?

    Gaddy, I did not. I am going to go back to default now. You can still change them in the pre-game menu without a DC risk right?

    I am about to complete a PMFL game right now on the first attempt so maybe the Madden gods didnt want us getting this one in

    No I did not Gaddy. I went ahead and deleted all of my Madden 11 info again and went ahead with default playbooks. I played my UFL game without a hitch.

    Thing is, I've never had DC problems. Just yesterday I finished a game for a different league without a problem.

    I did not have updated rosters when Matt and I tried the game. I did updated rosters and played an unranked game with custom teams and non-default playbooks against Coach West later that night and had no issues.

    I really hope that the league games do not resort to having to use default playbooks. Otherwise, I'm screwed, as Detroit's defensive playbook sucks. Their offensive playbook is usable, but I rather use Houston's PB.
