General Rules

Madden City League is an Xbox One Madden 17 Connected Careers Mode league that is looking to build an active community of gamers who enjoy a simulation-like experience while also realizing that this is, in fact, a video game.
We look for players that are mature, reliable, active, fun, and possess some common sense (defined below).

Settings

  • Skill Level: All-Pro
  • Quarter Length: 8 Minutes

ADVANCE/SCHEDULING

If your opponent isn’t responding to messages, screenshot your attempts to contact them, and we will put them on auto or give you the sim-win (your choice).
Teams that repeatedly miss scheduled games and/or are hard to get in touch with will be booted for inactivity.

In-Game

ADVANCE/SCHEDULING

If your opponent isn’t responding to messages, screenshot your attempts to contact them, and we will put them on auto or give you the sim-win (your choice).
Teams that repeatedly miss scheduled games and/or are hard to get in touch with will be booted for inactivity.


Offense

Hurry Up
Using hurry up offense sporadically is legal. A drive with all no huddle is fine; but not on every drive. Down 3 scores in the 4th? Feel free to no huddle every play. Again, common sense.

4th Down
Allowed when past the 50 yard line if it's 4th and 2 or shorter anytime of the game.

Allowed in any situation if you're losing in the 4th quarter.

2-Point Conversions
Allowed any time 

Chew Clock 
Allowed at all times

Play Selection 
You are expected to play with a variety of formations and players. Do not use the same two or three plays consecutively. 

CPU

When playing a team run by the CPU, you must play the whole game. No offense/Defense only or play moments. 

Defense

No defensive restrictions

 

Special Teams

Onside kicks may only be attempted if you’re tied or trailing. Consecutive onside kicks may only be attempted in the second half.

Fake field goals and fake punts will be governed according to the rules regarding 4th downs in the Offensive section below.

 

Trades

  • Trades with a CPU team are not allowed. 
  • Team can make 4 trades per season
  • All trades must be pre-approved by the trade committee
  • A player over 90 that is traded cannot be traded again in the same season
  • A team can only trade away 2 players in a season rated over 85
 

Position Changes

Position changes should be kept to their group set. OLB to ILB, CB to safety, RB to FB, left to right tackle. guards to center and vise versa. DL is interchangeable. Any other changes must go through Admins. 

quitting

Quitting at any point during the game is not allowed. If an emergency comes up during the game anytime before the last four minutes of the 4th quarter, you will be asked to forfeit the game, even if you are up by a large margin unless your opponent decides you deserve the win.

 

FAQ

  • What are the penalties for breaking the rules?
    • Each situation will be handled on a case by case basis. However, there are certain rules that if they're broken will almost certainly cause a player to be banned. For example, if a player quits in the middle of the game with no communication, they will be banned immediately.
  • What if the servers or internet goes out?
    • The players should communicate with each other. If both players agree on who should get the win, you are expected to communicate to the commissioner and that player will be granted the win when we sim the week If the players cannot agree on how to handle a situation, the game will be replayed. Any player with multiple connection disruptions will be banned from the league.
  • When are weeks advanced? 
    • Mondays at 9PM EST
    • Wednesdays at 9PM EST
    • Fridays at 9PM EST
  • How do rule changes work?
    • All rules can be changed if the league agrees to it. If 60% or more of the league agrees to a new rule, it will be added. However, if only 40% or more of the league disagrees with a rule, it will be removed or replaced. All rule changes are done via Slack using a polling system.
  • How do we communicate?
    • We use Slack (a chat app available on all platforms) for all communication, scheduling, rule changes, trades, etc.
