What is going on with this League?

Post by GeordieAlfie on Tue 20 Mar 2018, 7:48 pm

Forgive me for asking as I am a relative newcomer to this league, but why are so many people leaving? It's making me feel like a veteran in the league already. 

I have never been a member in an online league before and perhaps I should have chosen my team more wisely, but I am enjoying the challenge of the league and enjoying playing other opponents (except Matty in my division, obviously) but I don't understand why people join the league and leave after just a few games. What is the point? And why? The league seems to be well run to me and the site is updated regularly. Is there a problem I can't see? 
Does everyone think when they join they are going to win the Super Bowl and then when they realise they are not, they leave? 

I just don't get it. I have looked back through quite a few past seasons in the garbage can and I can see that this league used to be full with people on a waiting list. What happened? Where have they gone?

It's mostly cos most have not liked last two maddens even after trying.

But also down to people just be plebs joining from another league lose a key player or two and quit.

a mixture of a lot of things.

Madden is just bad game quite frankly.
More arcade then sim and with the focus being MUT , franchise is just getting stale.
Less people  are finding it not worth the money.
If not for this league i would not buy madden.

Which also brings us to the competitive side.
There are a few contenders for the title and with the XP system the more you win the better your team becomes the wider the gap becomes.
It does not help the confidence also increases the difference.

It also does not help that the game at times just decide to royally screw people.
The randomness turns people off.

Another thing to consider is also that we are pretty strict on certain things.
The play now experience is frowned upon and some cant handle that.

But to be fair this league has been running for a pretty dammm time.
People just grew up and found other intrest or all of sudden got responsibilities like kids and such or just found other games to play.
Some are in and out.

With MUT being the big thing and the new generations see people play that crap on twitch or youtube , there simply is very little influx of old skool league players.

Our ukrain/russian friends might have other things on their mind then play games.

Sadly but as long as madden does not improve and franchise get a lot more focus it will be hard to improve stuff.

I left because I wasn’t good enough at the game to win.

But, I missed my division and a few of the long term members of the site.

It’s a lot of fun as long as you can find the time to play.
