haha I don't know, I haven't looked. Awesome if I did though! I brought them in for hookers and bong hits. Guess it paid off
Seriously... I don't know where you were ranked previously but now your are Number 1 in recruit rankings with like seven 5*s and eight 4*s.... I'm nipping on your heels though with eight 5*s and 5 4*s... more to come from me on the 5*s though

My QB's first pass was about 9 feet behind the receiver, intercepted of course...I quit playing after that. Retired from the dynasty. Been fun, just don't care anymore.
Sorry to see you go. Do you want me to leave you in the dynasty in case you decide to return or are you done for good?

Nah, I'm good. Not planning on buying the 2013 version so my time would have come sooner or later anyway.
you know, so weird you said that....

My brother and I had this idea that we would like to see what Madden Franchise was all about so we would buy Madden 10 for 4-5 bucks and give it a spin. Last night I looked up on EA just out of curiosity and found this. http://www.ea.com/1/service-updates That lets you know what all servers they have taken down and are about to take down. As you can see, Madden 10 is already down.

So, I go to gamestop and get to looking at madden11 which is 14.99 or so used. I start talking to the clerk and he reminds me that you have to pay EA 10 bucks to get online. Brand New Madden11 is 29.99 so he was trying to talk me into that.

I remembered the website and said...hey do you know when they take down madden 11 servers? He said it could happen anytime around August and sometimes goes as long as December.

That's a crock. I could've spent 10 bucks for a whole 3 months of online play.

So I'm kind of pissed that my only real option to try out Madden is to buy 12.

So I start hatin some EA. I think about how ridiculously buggy NCAA12 is. I finally figured out why sometimes 2 people can't get their games to load up. It's a freaking substitution issue that glitches with custom playbooks and formation subs.

The servers are crap. Nearly every game people comment on the lag. That's not us guys. Maybe some but I'm betting most of us have internet capable of playing this football game. Does anyone have issues play MW3?? didn't think so.

I can't stand the micro-transactions that have flooded EA games. What a money grab. I understand some of the smaller guys having to do that to survive but c'mon.

If you're going to do the micro-transaction business model then just put out NCAA Football and make me buy an updated patch each year. That way you're constantly tweaking a game and improving a game that's designed the exact same way. After 3-4 years put out a new version. I would almost guarantee that's a more profitable business model then completely redoing the game every single year, new production, new marketing, new software, new physics engines...blah blah blah.

Don't do a new version every freaking year, support patches for 1 year before you even know what the glitches are and rush out a new P.O.S. buggy f'ing game.

TL;DR

I've had it with EA. I'm considering putting NCAA on a 2 year rotation. Meaning I probably won't get 2013.

So if anyone would like to consider joining me I would like to continue this dynasty instead of starting up a new one for 2013.

I should add i've been an avid EA NCAA player since Bill Walsh College football on super nintendo. I think that came out in 94. I've bought every single game they've put out since then.

I'd be down to stay in the '12 league. I just got this game in February and I'm still getting the hang of some of the stuff. '13 looks good with some of the new dynasty stuff, but I totally agree that the EA servers suck ass compared to other games. There is no way you can convince me that a game where I'm playing one other person is going to have more lag than a game of MW3 w/ 12 people connected.

EA doesn't need to make their NCAA Football games any good because they are the only ones that make a college football game. Fuck EA and their monopoly on college football. They are lucky I love FIFA so much (which I have no problems with) or I would stop giving them money all together. This will probably be the last NCAA Football game I get because they just aren't fun anymore.
