    XFN PMFL Playoff Race (link)

    This is a GREAT feature as it provides us with up-to-date playoff contenders based on the NFL tie-break procedures. Please keep in mind that some of the tie-break stats won't be updated until the current week is advanced. To view the new feature with your web browser, go to the "Stats" link and select "Playoff Race".

    From there, select the link and BAM, you can see who is (or isn't) in playoff contention in order with the NFL tie-break procedures already applied! Take that EA Sports!!!! :)

    Goodness, this guy is insane....

    Are all these races accurate with how Madden actually determines tiebreakers?

    XFN tie-breakers are accurate as they use the NFL tie-break rules. Who knows wtf EA uses to determine their tie-breaks in the OF, but their's are still inaccurate.

    so essentially, it may or may not be consistant with who really is in the playoffs....

    the only inconsistency is EA's determination of where teams fall in the playoffs. the XFN program is designed to apply the actual NFL tie-break procedures. we would just shift rosters as we have in the past if EA made a significant error regarding playoff seeds and/or berths.

    swap rosters between the teams with the one that should be in the designated playoff seed. that owner would just play with the incorrect team and uniforms and it would have an adverse effect on the team stats for the post season since that owner would be using their roster, but wouldn't be playing with their designated team.

    I wasn't aware that you were able to manipulate the playoff seedings to actually put the correct teams in the playoffs.

    Interesting...

    Sci, basically he's not manipulating the "teams" that are in the playoffs but the players that are on that team. Basically lets say The Broncos and Chargers are both 10-6 and the Chargers won the tiebreaker but Madden put the Broncos in the playoffs. Basically Doug would then trade all Charger players with all the Bronco players and Aaron would then play as the Broncos in the playoffs but would have his players. Hopefully this makes more sense to you. Once the Chargers are eliminated from playoffs doug then switches all the correct players back to their correct teams.
