My bad then, you're screwed. I dont see why you have such a problem with 5 minute quaters. Its a perfect setting to have a good game with balanced run and pass attempts and it wont drain you or whomever you playng. You may be looking for more realistic stat numbers but there just is'nt anyway to do that and play over five minute quaters. So you'd better just be thankful for what you have.

I have an xbox and hate it. I would never buy fever.

Madden/Ncaa is bascially becoming an adventure/arcade game.

what happened to real football with real stats?!?!?!






Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand why you are so wrapped up in stats. I know that when I play against someone, the only thing I care about is the score. So what if my RB only has 45 yards, as long as I win. I just don't understand.

What are you talking about? You can get real stats offline with the game or online with the game in unranked mode.

Please name 1 online football game with a published ranking system that included real stats or allowed for real stats with the default gameplay setup.

it's not 45 yards, it is the fact he'll have only 8 carries all game

most NFL teams run the ball 30 times and pass 30 times per game

IMPOSSIBLE to do it in 5 min quarters

I thought this was a football sim, not NFL JAMS

Re: will online quarters be only 5 min?!?!?

Since you love stats so much, let's look at some numbers...

You say that in 5 minute quarters, your RB will only get 8 carries a game. You also say that 6/7 minute quarters are perfect...

Well, 5 minute quarters are a 20 minute game...6 minute quarters are 24 minutes...and 7 minutes would be 28 minutes...

8 (carries)/20 (minutes) = .40 (ratio)
.40 (same ratio) * 24 (minutes) = 9.6 carries
.40 * 28 = 11.2 carries

Still doesn't look like you're getting your realism So quit being so picky.


That was your math lesson for today kiddies, now take out your sex ed books...

Re: will online quarters be only 5 min?!?!?

What you need to understand is that there is no game out yet that caters to your kind. Crying about one wont change that fact. Calling the game NFL Jams wont help it ethier. Nobody has the time to play 6-8 minute q games online. The extra time just give ppl more incentive to quit when thier getting blownout. Ethier you play ranked games online or you quit crying and play your franchise to get your realistic stats. Geez, first the shoe colors, now this.

Re: will online quarters be only 5 min?!?!?

you are misunderstanding me.

i love the game, played it since '92.

just don't know why they can't get these little things right




as far as that math went, when i play 7 min qtrs i get about 60 plays, which is all i ask.

Can you explain to me how they can get it right with details.


As I don't see how. No one wants to play 8 minute wtr ranked games online.
