Apparently you can be completely offsides, to the point you are standing right on the QB, but as long as you don't touch any opposing players prior to the snap, they won't call it. Watching my oldest son murder the other team on All Madden level right now. Anybody seen this? Couldn't find any info on it by Googling.

yeah, if he turned off offsides

otherwise, you can stand offsides all you want and they won't call "unimpeded to the QB" or anything, but as soon as the other team snaps the ball they'll flag the player for being offsides.

Quick question for the franchise mode players out there -

Has anyone nailed down a good scouting system in franchise mode yet? It's pretty much a crapshoot, imo (not unlike the real draft, i guess.) But it seems difficult to establish "scouting superiority."

When u start have control over four teams and trade all their top picks to you. Works like a charm

I hate the god damn scouting feature...

It's just too much...they went from not enough, to flat out TOO much...the scouting shit is so tacky anyways...

they did ok with some of the stuff, but the franchise mode still sucks asshole...and still isn't as revolutionary as what they did back in 04 or 05...

it still blows ass

Ya know what the most mind-blowingly retarded part of Madden 12 is? The ****ing free agency "bidding". You have 1 minute and counting to sign any and all free agents you could possibly need for next season. Just what I need...to get into a mini Ebay bidding war with San Francisco for a backup QB. Ah SHIT they outbid me with 2 seconds. Didn't see that coming. Guess I'll have to stick with that made-up free agent QB with a 36 rating and a photo that looks like a 32 year old accountant that plays too much World of Warcraft and eats too many Starburst jelly beans in his spare time. **** this game. Whoever thought that would be a good idea for free agency in off-season mode should be killed but not before he has to watch his children get eaten by meth-crazed coyotes.

there's a chance there is a glitch on his game, or your game...but I used to try and predict the snap count online in 11 all of the time and constantly jumped offsides...even to the point that if I was drunk enough after your 4th offsides you get kicked out of the game and automatically lose when you play online...that used to really piss me off.

Yeah...or when I try trading up to get the #1 pick when I have the #3 and #10...offer it, get declined...but they'll trade the #1 pick for the #8 pick and a 3rd rounder no problem...

new features, same old shit for the franchise mode...

and in all honesty, the game play isn't nearly as good as it was in '11...

this is the first Madden I've been disappointed with since the switch from the Xbox to the 360...

I still have fun playing online and appreciate the fact they give you a win when the other piece of shit player quits...and there was something else I liked a little bit (oh yeah, when you team play they don't give you the weird ass camera angle anymore, they give you the 1st person camera you're used to playing with...)

but yeah...fuck all of these new "franchise" mode options...with the in-season scouting being the worse...

and the fact that you can take a guy with C potential...get him 1900 receiving yards and 19 TDs...and he won't progress based off of stats but by some sort of algorithm the game has already decided blows my mind...

what happened to players progressing based off of team success and individual success? That was cool...this new "potential" shit is not cool...

if you don't land a guy with A potential he's fucking worthlss.

Looks like somehow all penalties got set to zero. Weird because neither he nor I even knew you could do that.

Yeah nothing beats drafting a 4th round LB with pretty good looking "stats" like speed and block shedding, then you draft him and he's like rated a ****ing 58 with a D potential.

my friends little brother used to turn penalties off but what happened (and this was like NCAA 05) was you couldn't jump offsides...but there would be an invisible wall at the LOS so your defensive player would be like running against it full speed...and as soon as the computer snapped the ball your guy was off and running full speed to the QB with a perfect jump on the snap...he'd win like 200-0 every game and somehow he had a blast doing it...

I mastered the '11 draft...

you didn't want top 20 picks...you wanted like 10 3rd round picks...all the best players were all "hidden"...you'd just scroll through their "potential" thing...and you'd find 85 rated guys with a 7th round draft grade named like "Patrick Chewing" (I kid you not)...and you could draft them in the 4th and sign them to 7 year deals with $0 signing bonus...

I could find an A potential QB, RB and WR (as well as any safety or linebacker) already rated high in every draft in the 4th-7th round...

the only thing I could never figure out were DB's...I'd use my same trick and they'd always end up being terrible...

but yeah...you'd draft the "#1" QB #1 overall...pay him $55M guaranteed and he'd be a 78 overall with B potential...

yet you could take that 4th rounder with the huge potential bubble and he'd be an 81 overall with A potential with a 7 year contract with $0 guaranteed...

that game was glitchy as hell but at least it didn't make you do all of that in game scouting...

oooh whooppeee we can unrealistically trade next years draft picks now! yay!

I won't be doing much franchise this year...I don't have much time as it is...I spend the time I do have for video games playing online...so much more fun.

Yeah they made it in 11 where you could actually find talent in mid to low rounds. Now I haven't seen that. That's Madden in a nutshell. For every good thing they add (that took them 6 years to wake up and finally add) they take away 2 or 3 great things from previous installments.

What I meant was that it's more of a crapshoot than before. In 11, you had a decent idea of what you were getting beforehand. Now it's just like every single draft pick is randomly generated no matter what. Also...sometimes my draft picks will disappear from my roster. I have everything set to USER and I'm signing them and not cutting them during preseason. So where the F do they go? Ah...there they are in the free agent pool. Well turns out they sucked anyway. Let Denver sign him.

I thought cut days would be pretty cool and that your players ratings could actually change depending on how they played in the preseason so you could find your "diamond in the rough" players. Everything is preset already if you look at your roster it has all the final ratings so there is still no point in actually playing preseason games.

And the draft day trading still sucks like you said. The entire trading system is terrible, you can pretty much get whatever you want from any team for your 1st round pick before the trade deadline, but after the season before the draft you can't trade up no matter what you package together.

I feel like the Maddens went to complete shit since PS3 and 360 came out. 2009 and 2010 were dogshit, 2011 was a little better, and 2012 I just don't really know yet. It's ok I guess. Its just kind of hard to go back to 2008 at this point. Madden really just needs competition again. I never liked that overrated hunk of shit that everyone puts on a golden pedestal NFL 2k5. But since EA got the exclusive license they don't give half a shit anymore.

I take what you say about that game with a GIGANTIC grain of salt...you once told me you were "awesome" etc... and we played twice and you quit down 3 scores in the 1st quarter both times...and blamed the "lag" that you had on your side but somehow I didn't have on my side...

Set the sliders correctly? What? I can glitch the fuck out of the OL in that game running 2 man under and getting a filthy pass rush...it's a definite form of cheesing...just like when I audible out of my scary sweep in a two TE set motioning TG out wide and then snapping and throwing a high bullet right away to him that is indefensible...

so yeah
