I have been considering whether to make some changes to the way we run the league for Madden 20.

For those of you who have been here a while, one thing is constant and that is that during the last season, many people lose interest and either leave or simply don't play their games. It results in Season 4 becoming a bit of a farce and somewhat devalued.

On the other hand, it gives those who do stick around the chance to perhaps make the playoffs, whereas otherwise they might not (I can count myself as one of those).

I may put this to a vote when we start up Madden 20 (and yes of course we are going ahead with it) but my thoughts were either:


  • Leave things as they are
  • Abandon season 4 altogether and allow some extra time for pre-season games, rather than the rushed daily advance we have at present - plus get a longer break between Maddens
  • Abandon pre-season completely and start at week 1 - this will add 16 days to the break
  • Keep season 4, but sim the whole season up to the Wild Card Playoffs and just play the playoff games (could get some interesting teams into the playoffs).


These are just thoughts at this stage - other ideas are welcome, together with your views on these suggestions. Please post them in the thread below.

I always play the first seasons preseason, when the game is new and you want to test things. Then I almost never play any preseason games season 3 and 4. Maybe keep preseason for year one? To be honest I won’t really care if we sim the preseason, the only thing I would be worried about is injuries.

I think that's an urban myth now. I played lots of pre-eason throughout Madden 19 and got lot of injuries!

Think people are ok with playing a losing a player,Sim more lottery.not a urban myth for some.

Also with how ratings are now spread,pre season maybe be crucial to getting XP up,which that will have to be looked at too slider wise especially. 

I would say keep as is.

If you were to aim S4 i would go week by week let user play users ,once there done sim user Vs CPU that are left.
No one plays CPU games period,can do training and scouting and contracts. Maybe if done quick get season 5 lol

I don't think this sim injury thing is still a thing. I try to play my preseason games but I still get injuries. During this Madden, after signing Le'Veon Bell, he got injured season after season, including twice in a couple. 

I think injuries generally have been greater than I have ever recalled, or maybe I have just been unlucky. In my final game of the season, I had 4 or 5 go down in one game: and that's not the first time!
