Attention Gamers: First Annual Chargers.com vs. SDUT-Forum Madden Tournament!


It's On!

Do you have what it takes to represent Chargers.com and take your team all the way the championship? Our counterparts at SDUT have challenged us to bring our very best, and if you've got an XBox or PS/2, Madden '06, and some skills, we need you!

Here's how it will work; simply sign up here or by sending a PM to Thunderstruck. There will be two leagues, one for XBox and one for PS/2. Each league will be divided into two conferences; chargers.com and SDUT-Forums.

You will be placed in the appropriate conference and asked to play 2 games each Saturday and 2 games each Sunday against a scheduled opponent for 4 weeks. At the end of the season, the top players will advance to the postseason, and the rest will have to work on their skills for next year.

Games will be prescheduled by us. Final rules for the tournament are still being polished and will be presented prior to the start of the tournament. Things like prizes (if any) and other particulars are also yet to be determined. One thing is certain--the ultimate champion will receive a custom-designed signature to wear proudly until it comes time to defend the trophy. If this sounds interesting to you, or if you have any suggestions for how to make the tournament run more smoothly, post them here!

Gah! I have a ps2 and Madden 06, but I am challenged when it comes to hooking it up to the computer so I can plan it online. If I get it all set up I'll definately enter. One question. How does choosing the teams work, considering everyone will be wanting to use the Bolts?


Help LTfan enter the tournament!

I have the newer slim ps2 with the built in adapter
I have an ethernet cord
I don't have the brains to set it up :(
I do have the skills to OWN all of you! especially SDUT board members :p

The rules are still forthcoming, though I know that the preliminary plan is to have all teams use the same roster to ensure fairness. It's not about the roster...it's about the player.

well, we all know everyone will use the chargers, unless it's a troll. How bout if it's chargers vs chargers the sdut team will wear traditional colors and we wear throwbacks. That could be done online right? Either way they're going down bigtime bro!

you need a router. plug the ethernet cable into your router and connect it to your PS2. Stick in that Network Disc (came with your PS2 I think) and let it set it up. If there is no disc, than use the options in your PS2 menu (dont put a game in there, just power on the console)

Hmm...I was searching through Circuit City, and I came across this (http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/D-Link-Wireless-G-Router-WBR-1310-/sem/rpsm/oid/147496/catOid/-12980/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do). I'm not sure if that's what I'm gonna want? I figure I'll want one sooner or later. :confused:

n routers are 30 x better then g routers and you will probably want to get a wired router if playing games due to lag issues with wireless unless you detest wires.

I also want to be sure everyone in the league knows how to PM, because that's how you'll be reporting game results as the league progresses. It also makes it easier for me to keep track of people and I will be sending PM correspondance to everyone in the league as necessary.

I think we're looking at starting the league week-after next, so we'll probably have a July 12th or so deadline. A lot of it depends on how quickly and how many people sign up. It might be a little later than that.

We don't want the league to extend into the regular season.

Can't we just wait until people pick up Madden 07 and get a couple weeks to work with it?

Well, that's not a bad suggestion. My biggest worry is that it requires anyone who wants to play in the league to go out and buy a $60 game. There are a lot more people who have the previous than will have the new version right away. Also there are a lot of people who have XBox360s now, and they would probably prefer to buy the XBox360 version of '07. They may already have '06 for XBox but I doubt they're goin to want to buy both. Are the games compatible with both systems?

Tomlinson21
07-02-2006, 01:55 PM
I think it's only fitting to play 06...competition would be good and we won't have to settle being newbees! Each new madden comes out always seems to come up with new features which take months if that to get the hang of.

Everyone might use the Chargers as a rule, so there can be no "well you had (insert name) on your team". Plus, it's our board vs another San Diego board.

Sounds good...if I had a choice, I want to pick the charger powder blues as our colors and they could get the navy blues? can you imagine what it would be like with both teams wearing powder blues????? But again, you can only do this if we go unranked.

is this going to be ranked or unranked. I would hate to see a SDUT player fake like he won when he actually lost. Ranked games at least have the REAL SCORE.

Yeah...plus a rule should be if they quit, it's a forfeit, and the game ends at the score it is. I've heard of people leaving during a game so they don't hurt their W/L record.

We've already addressed disconnects in our rules. If you disconnect and you're losing by a certain number of points, or at a certain point in the game, you lose.

One group would be the old school jersey set (since they have away and home for those in two different throwback styles), and one would be the current.

I'd think a Charger fan-based Madden tournament would be strange if it wasn't Chargers vs Chargers. Remember, just because the players are the same doesn't mean you coach the same.

If you have X-Box you need X Box live subscriptions

If you have ps2, you're in my boat. You need to get a router and ethernet cord. It'll be around $50-$70 for the router and cord, depending on what brand and type you get. Basically, a little more than you pay for a new game to get an even funner experience from many games, and almost all sports games.

hey bpride, all you got to do is hook up the ethernet cord to the back of the PS/2 where your adapter should be. Then hook the other end to your Cable modem, or whatever modem you use. Set up an EA ID on EAsports.com, then you will be able to play online.

I've written about 95% of the rules and I'm just waiting on feedback/changes and default in-game settings from sdut.com. I don't want to just unilaterally write a rules system without their feedback. It'll be posted the moment I have their confirmation.

System Unknown:

Am I missing anyone on the roster?

If your name is in the "system unknown" category, you need to let me know if you're going to be in the XBox or PS/2 league.

If you have (needs to PM me) by your name, please click on my name in the window above, select "Send Private Message to Thunderstruck" and put "Sign me up for" along with whichever system you run. I also want to be sure everyone in the league knows how to PM, because that's how you'll be reporting game results as the league progresses. It also makes it easier for me to keep track of people and I will be sending PM correspondance to everyone in the league as necessary.

Okay well, we're going to leave it to you guys to meet for scheduled games, so a few practice games should make for good practice.

Don't forget that you guys will be playing each other (chargers.com vs. chargers.com) for about 75% of your regular games during the "season." It'll work kind of like the NFL, where you play about 75% of your games in conference and 25% out-of-conference. So don't give up all your secrets. ;)

Oh, that'll happen. There will be a "Superbowl" (Thunderbowl? Maddenbowl?) at the end of the season. The purpose of the season will be to determine our best and their best so the two best-of-the-best can meet in the championship.

As far as how the games will be scheduled, it will depend a lot on how many players are in the league. PS/2 is looking pretty good but we definitely need more players on the XBox side.

First Annual SDUT vs.chargers.com Madden Tournament

A word about sportsmanship:

The official rules should serve as a guideline for settling disputes and answering questions about how the league is structured. However, no rules system can handle or settle all questions. Please exercise common sense and good sportsmanship at all times while participating in this Madden Tournament.

If an opponent cannot play his game against you at the scheduled time, do everything possible to accomodate a different time so that your opponent does not have to forfeit.

Do not use cheats, exploits, or any other tricks that manipulate the game mechanics to give you an unfair or unrealistic advantage. An example of this would be players who repeatedly audible/change formations in order to confuse or disrupt the computer's ability to adjust, or inserting Ladainian Tomlinson as a punt returner. If we get repeated complaints from other players that you are somehow exploiting the system you will be suspended from the league. This should be a game of skill, not a game of who knows all the loopholes.

That being said, less experienced players should also understand that more experienced players will likely have a better understanding of which plays and formations work best to counter what you are doing. It's up to you to figure out how to counter what an opponent is doing. Do not get predictable. Do not fall into the habit of doing the same thing every time on first down, or always blitzing a particular safety and then complain if that tactic backfires. There's a difference between exploiting the system and exploiting the player.

Do not taunt your opponent.

Do not get angry and log out in the middle of a game.

Try to settle any disputes before bringing them to the mods. If your opponent did something you don't like, ask yourself if that action actually had an effect on the outcome of the game. Ask yourself if it's really worth it to make an issue out of something; then try to resolve the issue before it comes to the mods.

If the mods feel at any time that you are exploiting this rules-system to your benefit, we reserve the right to take corrective action against you. Do your best to play all games and complete the schedule.

Beyond these things we will be leaving most of the rest to the honor system. We sincerely believe everyone in this league will do their best to post accurate results and scores, win or lose, and will try their best to cooperate with other players.

OFFICIAL RULES

I. The League(s). Two leagues have been established; Thunder (XBox) and Lightning (PS/2.)
A. Each league has been divided into two conferences; Blue (chargers.com) and Gold (SDUT.) Therefore, if you are a chargers.com member and are playing on a PS/2, you will be in "Lightning" league in the "Blue" conference.
B. Within each league, the top-6 players from each conference will compete in a postseason tournament for the right to represent his/her league in the Superbowl. The top 2 players will receive a first-round postseason bye and the remaining four players will compete to advance into the later rounds. (See "Playoff Tiebreakers" for more information.)

II. System Functionality. All participants are responsible for the functionality of their own systems and connectivity. System failure or an inability to connect or stay connected to the internet are not valid excuses for missing games.

A. The following rules are intended to prevent players from disconnecting solely to avoid losing games.In the event of a disconnect, the game will be replayed from the beginning except under the following conditions:

1. Fourth Quarter: If one player has a two-score (9 points or better) lead in the fourth quarter and the trailing player disconnects, the player with the lead wins the game by whatever the score is at the time of the disconnect.
2. Final Two Minutes: If the disconnect occurs in the final two minutes of the game, and the disconnected player is trailing or the game is tied, the disconnected player loses by whatever the score is at the time (+1 in the event of a tie.) If the disconnected player is leading by a score of 9-16 points the game must be replayed. If the disconnected player is leading by 17 points or more, that player wins by whatever the score is at the time the disconnect occurred.
3. First Three Quarters: If the disconnect occurs prior to the fourth quarter and while the disconnected player is trailing by three scores (17 points or more) the player who disconnected loses.
4. Any other disconnects that occur that do not fall under any of the preceding criteria will result in cancellation of that game and will require an immediate restart.

B. If a disconnect occurs and it cannot be determined which player disconnected, the game must be replayed from the beginning.

III. The Schedule. Players will be given a weekly schedule of opponents on Tuesday. Each player is responsible for coordinating with opposing players, acquiring in-game handles as necessary, confirming online identities, etc. The weekly schedule will have 4 opponents. Players must contact their opponents and schedule a time to meet. All games must be complete and scores must be submitted to moderators by no later than 9:00 PM on the following Sunday.

A. All scheduled games will have an accompanying day and time. Players may arrange to play the games at a different time. However, in the event that two players cannot agree on a mutually satisfactory time the game must take place on the day and time scheduled.

B. Once games are completed, both players are expected to report the results (winner/loser and score) of that game to Thunderstruck at chargers.com or L.T. 21 at signonsandiego.com . If one player reports a result and the other player does not, the results reported by the one player will be accepted as final. If neither player reports results, the game will be considered a mutual forfeit, and neither player will gain points from the game.

C. In the event of a disputed score, the moderators will analyze the situation that caused the dispute and may decide to rule in favor of one or the other player, or to reschedule the game to be played subject to moderation.

D. Any player who is involved in reporting results that differ from his/her opponent (regarding the winner/loser) more than once will forfeit his/her next game. Further instances of non-corroborative reporting will result in suspension for the remainder of the season and forfeiture of all remaining games.

Thunderstruck
07-12-2006, 04:13 PM
IV. The Road to the Championship. The season will cover 16 games. At the end of the season, the top 6 players from each conference will advance to a single-elimination playoff tournament with the winner of each advancing to his respective league's Superbowl. Each player will receive 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss or forfeiture. A player who wins by forfeiture will be credited with a win, but it will be an "unearned win," a stat which only comes into play in the event of a tiebreaker at the end of the season.

A. Playoff tiebreakers; the following are the criteria (in order of importance) for determining the quality or strength of a player's final record.

1. Total points from wins and ties.
2. Most wins. (Example: If one player is 5-1-10 and the second player is 10-6-0, the player with the most wins secures the tiebreaker despite the fact that both players have 20 points.)
3. Most earned wins. (Example: If two players have the same record, the player who earned more wins by actually playing (not by forfeiture) secures the tie-breaker.
4. Most points within conference.
5. Strength of victory
6. Strength of schedule
7. Record vs. common opponents
8. Due to the inability of moderators to accurately confirm all scores, any ties that cannot be broken by the above tie breakers will be decided by a coin-flip.

B. The playoffs. Teams will be ranked or "seeded" 1 through 6 in the playoffs according to their regular season ranking. The playoffs will consist of three rounds.
1. The top two teams in each league will receive a "bye" in Round 1.
2. The remaining four teams will play in Round 1. Game 1 of Round 1 will feature the #3 seed vs. the #6 seed. Game 2 will feature the #4 seed vs. the #5 seed. The winner of Game 1 will advance to Round 2 of the playoffs and will play the #2 seed. The winner of Game 2 will advance and play the #1 seed.
3. The winners of the Round 2 games will advance to Round 3 and play for the Conference Championship and the right to represent their respecitve league in the Superbowl.
4. The Superbowl will feature the champion of each league and will be played on a neutral field with things like weather-conditions, uniforms, day/night, and other ambient options chosen by the moderators. The winner of the Superbowl will be the Champion of his/her league for the First Annual chargers.com vs. SDUT Madden Tournament!

V. Gametime Settings. The following are the rules for setup-options and in-game features for playing the games.

A. All players will use the San Diego Chargers and the default automatically updated roster from Madden '06. This is to ensure uniformity and competetive parity throughout the league.
B. The home team can choose the following criteria:
1. Uniform
2. Weather conditions
3. Day or night conditions.
C. All games must be played on all-pro difficulty level. No lower, and no higher.

D. Injuries, Offsides, and Penalties set to ON.
E. Passing-cone set to ON.
F. Quarter times set to 7 minutes.
G. Madden assistance / Advice OFF (The player must choose all plays on offense, defense, and special teams.)
(Other rules and settings to be determined.)

Thunderstruck
07-12-2006, 04:13 PM
VI.Win Lose or Tie.
A. The game itself is programmed to determine the winner and loser based upon the score. At all times the game-score when time expires will determine the winner and loser.
B. Ties. If, at the end of regulation and one overtime quarter, the score is tied, that game will be recorded as a tie and each player awarded one point.
C. If, for any reason, one or both players must stop playing before time expires, the rules for disconnect will be applied to determine the winner/loser. If the game is tied and both players decide to mutually exit the game, the game will be considered a mutual forfeiture and neither player will earn points.
D. Players who forfeit, either by failing to show up or by leaving early, are awarded no points and the record will reflect a loss-by-forfeiture. For this reason, it will be possible for two players to lose a game.
E. If a player shows up for his game and his opponent fails to show up, or if his opponent leaves the game for any reason while it is tied, the player will earn a win-by-forfeit. This will cound as a normal win except in the event of a tie-breaker where number-of-wins are idential, as discussed in Rule IV; A-3.

VII. Player Agreements. Players may agree to change or alter the following rules on a game-by-game basis and only when agreed upon by both players.

A. Quarter Legnth
B. [Amended]
C. Day/Time of scheduled game, so long as scheduled games are completed and the results sent to moderators by 9:00 PM of the Sunday following the game's scheduled time.
D. Disconnect/Forfeiture rules. (Example, if a player disconnects, the two players may mutually decide to restart the game from the beginning, regardless of the score.)
E. If both players do not mutually agree on changes to the above criteria, the default rules will remain in effect.
F. Default rules will remain in effect for all postseason games.

VIII. Other Rules. The following miscellaneous rules apply.
A. Players are allowed to change/alter the roster depth charts on a game-by-game bases except in the following cases:
1. No changes to special teams are allowed except at the KR and PR position. The following players may NOT be used at the KR or PR position: Ladainian Tomlinson or Antonio Gates.
2. No changes to default player attributes will be allowed.

B. Players may choose any playbook available within the game, but must use that playbook for the entire season.
1. Players may NOT use custom designed plays.
2. Players may NOT use custom designed audibles or hot reads.

C. Players may use defensive shifts, offensive and defensive audibles, hot reads, etc. but may not change more than twice before any given play.

D. Players may NOT use a no-huddle offense except in the final two minutes of a half or when losing by more than 10 points. This rule does not apply to a one-time or accidental use of the no-huddle for a single play.

E. Players cannot send offensive players in motion more than twice per play. If you want to motion more than two players, call an audible.



These rules are posted as is and ARE NOT FINAL AT THIS MOMENT. This league will not start for another ten days or so, so these rules may be amended before then. Beyond that, SDUT and chargers.com moderators reserve the right to amend these rules at any time.

Thanks, bro, but to be honest the "official settings" part of the rules is the one area I anticipated would probably be changed. It's hard to come up with one fast-and-dirty setting and since I have never personally played '06 (I've played all the other Maddens except '06) I finally decided to throw some setting onto the wall and see what sticks.

Rule V-A has been amended to: "All players will use the default automatically updated roster from Madden '06."

Rule V-E has offically been amended due to a consensus between both our forums. Default setting will be passing-cone "ON."

Members over at SDUT are looking for some scrimmage games. I suggest if you're looking for a game this weekend get with those guys (they have a thread with this same title) and get in some "pre-season" work.

The offical forum rosters will be posted tomorrow and the schedule for next week's games by Tuesday. Thanks for being patient while we worked out a rules system.

(Note: There are now two days left to make suggestions or objections to the rules system before the system becomes final.)

Does that mean we have to follow their Depth chart or can we have our own Depth chart? I like to have KMac and VJ as my starters, Hart and Jue as my starting Safeties, Whelihan backing up Edwards, Cooper backing up Godfrey.

Also, how many minutes per quarter? Will it be ranked or unranked?

Are audibles out of the original formation allowed (ex. I-Formation audibling to a 4 WR set sounds pretty silly). If the NFL rarely does it - why do it?

Also, are there any rules about no huddling and going for it on 4th down or are we going fair play? I prefer fair play. I'm not sure about the others, but I like the simulated feel...keeps the game interesting til the end.

VIII. Other Rules. The following miscellaneous rules apply.
A. Players are allowed to change/alter the roster depth charts on a game-by-game bases except in the following cases:
1. No changes to special teams are allowed except at the KR and PR position. The following players may NOT be used at the KR or PR position: Ladainian Tomlinson or Antonio Gates.

Also, how many minutes per quarter? Will it be ranked or unranked?

V. Gametime Settings.

F. Quarter times set to 7 minutes.

(And I'm not sure what you mean by "ranked or unranked.")

Are audibles out of the original formation allowed (ex. I-Formation audibling to a 4 WR set sounds pretty silly). If the NFL rarely does it - why do it?

VIII. Other Rules.
B. Players may choose any playbook available within the game, but must use that playbook for the entire season.
1. Players may NOT use custom designed plays.
2. Players may NOT use custom designed audibles or hot reads.

C. Players may use defensive shifts, offensive and defensive audibles, hot reads, etc. but may not change more than twice before any given play.

E. Players cannot send offensive players in motion more than twice per play. If you want to motion more than two players, call an audible.

Also, are there any rules about no huddling and going for it on 4th down or are we going fair play? I prefer fair play. I'm not sure about the others, but I like the simulated feel...keeps the game interesting til the end.

VIII. Other Rules.
D. Players may NOT use a no-huddle offense except in the final two minutes of a half or when losing by more than 10 points. This rule does not apply to a one-time or accidental use of the no-huddle for a single play.

Regarding going for it on fourth down, the situations under which it might make sense for a player to go for it on fourth down are far too varied for me to say, "you can only go for it on fourth in X situation."

Hey guys...I'm having a problem. I'm sending you this post from my boss's computer. The reason for this is that my internet connection at home has gone down. I don't want people to think that I've abandon the Us vs. Them league, but I don't have any way to get on the net for now. :( I'm not sure how long it's going to be down. The company that runs our DSL (SBC) says everything should be working fine, but it's not. I'm going to be getting a new modem from them in the mail sometime in the next couple days but I won't know if that fixes the problem until then. I'm trying to get with L.T. 21 from SDUT so the league can get under way without my conscious presence for the timebeing.

Bubba Chuck383 got game. He beat me the first game. I asked him why he bumps and runs all game and brings safety's outside the outside linebacker. I dont think thats str8 but i asked for a rematch. He didnt do it everydown but he got me on his final drive. He is good but I will get mine. First game i used different playbook then SD then he would know similar formations. Didnt matter he dont like SD playbook. Damn!! oh well it was just a scrimmage and got my games in. Im rusty and need more practice. I will tell u this he a BALLER and will be up there in the rankings.

yea man good game, the only reason i bump and run so much is to mess up your timing with your wr's especially the chargers wide outs because they pretty much suck, i dont mess around too much with bumpin those indi wr's though. I move up my safteys just enough to help in the run game and just enough so they dont get burned deep to often. some people consider it cheese some dont, i dont though because there are ways to beat it.
