I’ve always said that I wanted this league to run for at least 5 seasons, and we’ve made it! Although the league turnaround has been pretty big, the league has been very healthy and active enough to be competive. I’m very happy about that.
I’m also sad to announce that this will be the last year of the Franchise. I’ve made that decision based on a few things. For starters, NCAA 14 is coming out in early July, which is just over two months away. Very excited for that game. The other reason would be that this game is getting very stale. Not just for me, but for other users as well. I know most people don’t even play the game outside of the CC. It feels like a good time to call it quits.
Welp! Season number 2 is officially over. I would like to congratulate ThatGing on his Super Bowl victory. With the amount of talent in the league, that wasn’t an easy task. I would also like to thank the participants of Season 2 for a very enjoyable, drama-free season. It makes my a job heck of a lot easier.
Anyways, now is the time I like to look over the rules and polish them up a bit. I’ve also taken into account some feedback I’ve received from several users, which I really do appreciate. I will be incorporating that feedback as well as some of my own into the new league rules for Season 3.
With the first season in the books, I want to congratulate our two Alan Bowl Champions Gr8northwest (49ers – League 1) and VinnieMac (Steelers – League 2) as well as everyone who participated in the league throughout the Inaugural Season. I had a ton of fun and hopefully you did to.
With this being my first Online Connected Career I learned a lot of things. First of all, it’s really hard to get some people to play their games. And secondly, people will take advantage of anything they can to win. Therefore, I wanted to update the rules for Season 2 to enforce a more ‘Sim’ type of gameplay that will be fun for everyone.
I will be streaming Madden 13 Early Release at 6 pm EASTERN Friday August 25th, 2012 time on twitch.tv. Come join me as I play both Connected Careers and Online Versus all weekend long. It should be fun, this is the most improved Madden since 05 on the original Xbox.
