There's a host who has the power to boot in every game? That's completely retarded.

Are these ranked games or unranked games that you guys are getting booted from? I'll be pissed if I get booted from a ranked game just because I'm winning.

I was booted once last night. I've played 5 games including the one I was booted from.
The only thing I have to do is stay black and die.

Are you guys sure you were booted from the game? Perhaps EA servers were just really clogged up since Madden came out yesterday.

In fact, it's common to no-huddle all the way down the field (don't worry, hardcore players, there's a "fair play" area where this can be turned off, along with other cheap tricks, and that is also available online), using just one core play and destroying the defense with customized air attacks. This is the one true feature that Wii has over the 360/PS3 builds of the game, and it's a big one. Just like Pro Evo Soccer's pointer control, Madden's Call Your Shot has evolved football to a whole new level. In this reviewer's opinion, it's the single best gameplay advancement I've seen in Madden for years, and I'm talking any version of the game.

from IGN, WII actually finally has something that is better in a sports game than the 360 or the PS3

(soccer isnt a sport)

These disconnects are really pissing me off. Also, my first game online was against the exact opposite of a person I want to play. He was the Patriots, bombed it every time, went for it on every 4th down, and took up the entire play clock every time even when he threw an incomplete pass.

I regret buying this game now. I should've just kept playing Madden 08.

Things that suck about this game:
1. Computer AI being retarded when catching a ball by the sidelines. Even if they have 15 yards of open field in front of them, if they catch the ball by the sidelines, they'll purposely run out of bounds.

2. Online leagues. Apparently, online leagues are basically broken in here. I've read that most people have had trouble finishing a game in their league.

3. To go along with this, the game always disconnects me when trying to play online. Why is it so hard to finish a game?

4. Player progression is shit. My rookie CB that's rated a 78 won the best CB award in the Madden awards screen. He gets rewarded by getting bumped up to an 81. No one on my team got an increase of more than 3 points. Also, my players don't progress at all when I sim the preseason. I don't know if they would if I played the preseason, but there should be some progression whether you sim or play.

5. The My Skill difficulty is pretty shitty. If the computer goes 18-21 against me, don't move my difficulty against the pass up. It gets frustrating that the computer's always completing passes against me because they only throw short and my linebackers suck in coverage. For some reason it's thinking I'm doing a good job too, when I'm not.

Everyone should just buy COD and we can have a COD tournament instead.

2 on 2 tournament...me and ryan are a team.

best 2 out of 3, one team picks one map/gametype, the other team picks another, and then we vote on the 3rd one which stays the same.

I'll probably buy CoD4 next week. I have a pretty huge paycheck coming, so maybe I can spring for it.
