World Football Association
« on: April 24, 2014, 08:39:45 PM »
So I've been working on figuring out how to make one of these games with football, because it seems like everyone is interested in it. Been messing around with it, tossing around ideas. Here's my idea of how it would work, it'd be a little bigger than the NBL, but this is the only way that I can think of that it could work.

You'd hire a Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, and Defensive Coordinator.

Then these would be the positions to fill:

Offense
QB
RB
WR
WR
TE
FLEX
FLEX
K
BENCH
BENCH

Defense
CB
CB
FS
SS
LB/LM
LB/LM
FLEX
FLEX
BENCH
BENCH

So, the specific positions are self explanatory. The LB/LM positions would be filled with LOLB, MLB, ROLB, DT, RE, or LE. On defense, the Flex position would then be filled by any other defensive position, including Punter.

Offense then, you might be asking yourself what about the Offensive Line? There will be players out there at each of the O-Line positions, and you can place them in your FLEX spots as well as any other positions like another RB or WR etc.

I'd be making the rosters and summing everything on Madden. So you might now be asking yourself what about the 20+ other positions on the team? Every other position that isn't filled by one of your players would then be "zeroed out" for instance, if you don't have an offensive linemen, then all five members of your line are at OVR 72. But you might be able to pick up a C that's 95, etc. etc.

I'm probably leaving some stuff out, but I just wanted to get this preliminary idea out there to see what you guys think. Would it work? Any tweaking suggestions? Any interest period?

I'd be in, but I feel like it'd be a nightmare on your end.

I'm in, but I'd streamline it a bit...

Something like draft/sign the entire o-line as a unit, same with defense.

Leaves a lot fewer positions to deal with.

That's a good idea. O-Line, D-Line, Secondary, Special Teams (including kicker).

You could sign a specific player to be the "Captain" of that squad, and be the spokesperson for the group.

those ideas are great and all, but most sims arent made to do that, so then you're making a lot of adjustments etc that arent factored into your game or sim to start with.

That was my original idea but it becomes impossible with the sim I was going to use. No way to do it like that.

If you want to do it by individual and make the rest of the players a certain rating, I'd suggest doing fewer positions for you/us to deal with. I think you have 20 spots listed. That's a lot...

I've mentioned multiple times that it won't be going for a long while.

It launches at 4am your time.  Stay up and wait in line, that way you can be first to sign up.
