Re: Map out your 6 hours of early access...

Heres my theory and thinking of how this timer thing is going to work. Bare in mind this is strictly theory and has very minimal basis.

I feel that once the 6 hour timer runs out, that it wont just abruptly kick you from the game. I beleive that once the timer expires itll wait for you to exit the game or turn off your Xbox, than once you attempt to get back into the game itll prompt you with a message that your time has expired, thanks for trying madden 15 make sure to buy it on the 26th blah, blah, blah. Now my strategy is to simply not exit the game or turn off my xbox. If you were familiar with ea season ticket I beleive I played well past the 12:01 cut off simply because I never went to the dashboard and kept the game running. I recall pkaying well into tuesday afternoon. It's prbably wishful thinking but I have a feeling this is a possible work around. Heres hoping.

lol. Really? You're going to spend 4 hours simming??? To each his own. I would wait for the actual purchased game for that. Get in there and check out the skills trainer! Play some games!! Test drive that bad boy!! Don't just sim it, play it!!

start drinking beer about dinner time, checking on the DL progress continuously.

make sure the wife and kid are soundly asleep.

urinate, as to not waste any clock time.

play Chiefs vs. Chiefs, 6 min quarters, 1 game, go to bed.

that's day 1.

I'm going the crash course route. I'm jumping right into starting my CFM player and learning the game through the pre-season games and drills. I'm hoping that it gives the game more of a grounded feel and when I'm doing much better in the later years it feels like a more authentic arc.

Re: Map out your 6 hours of early access...

Thursday, download it and play 1 game. Then going to a banquet for the Arky State Red Wolves

Friday, fantasy draft after work and wife's birthday - ZERO hours.

Saturday, work then maybe put in 2 hours in my CFM getting through preseason.

Sunday, watch some NFL, and put 2 more hours in on CFM preseason.

Monday, finish up what time I have left and be really pissed off about 6 hours again and will be glad when I have the game in my hand, and call Xbox to get my refund for EA Access.
