END AUTOMATED TEXT. THREAD CREATOR INFORMATION BELOW.

I believe I've owned every Madden on a Nintendo console since 2001 (with the best being 2005, I might add) and this is the version I've looked most forward to in a long time with the launch of the Wii U. I even owned it twice in 2006 when the Wii was released! It's unfortunate "we" won't be able to play with the new "Infinity Engine" they are using with the 360 and PS3 versions but it seems like it's going to be a massive upgrade to the Maddens we have played on the Wii.

"EA is bringing many of the key Madden 13 features to Wii U, which is being developed by a dedicated team. Ideas like Total Control Passing, Girdiron Club and the new commentators are on the way. Plus the integration with Wii U's GamePad will allow players to make faster play calls, substitute players and create custom hot routes on the fly, changing the way sports fans will interact with a Madden game. Another key feature being brought to Wii U is Connected Careers, which allows up to 32 players to form a league. Bialoskursky noted that online is a big emphasis for Nintendo this time around, aligning with EA's own interests for its sports titles. On the downside, however, the Madden Ultimate Team feature will not be present this time around."

I can't wait to use this game with the GamePad!

The Madden NFL 13 Wii U version will utilize the tablet controller in various ways. During a match, players can quickly swift through the interactive playbook to call plays on the fly. They cal also use the Wii U stylus to trace the route for a player to run on the field. The Madden NFL 13 Wii U version will also include most of the regular game modes, including career, manage a team, Connected Career mode, and online multiplayer as well. However, the game will not support the new Infinity physics engine, as developer EA did not have enough time to implement this feature.

The idea of being able to choose your play without your friend in the room being able to see or draw pass routes on the GamePad is awesome. I can't wait. See you online with the RAIDERS!

What has you on the fence? Do you have concerns?

@Mr_Mustache
I joined the forum but then got distracted for a bit and forgot about it.

I've just started getting annoying freezing problems with the game and it's not in the middle of a marathon session. It happens at the intro screen after connecting to the EA Server...it happened four times in a row upon starting the game! Once I prevented the game from connecting to the EA Server, the game seemed to work just fine.

Other than the random freezing issues, I'm enjoying this game a lot! I can't wait to get going with the online connected careers

I had a similar problem with NHL 12 on the PS3. I think it's an EA thing with trying to connect your user name to their server, etc. Once I disabled online, it worked fine.

I have not had any problems with online for Madden on the WiiU though.

It seems like the only way to safely connect without a freeze is to check my pending league invites

Have you guys checked out the Connected Careers website yet?

http://www.easports.com/madden-nfl/connected-careers/

I tried to....but I seem to have forgotten my password. I think I had it reset, or something, and it gave me a stinky one.
Confusing, because I'm obviously logged in on the Wii U, and I don't remember entering "521idb4db" or something.

I just logged into there for the first time but I'm only apart of one online league where it hasn't started yet so the site isn't really useful yet. Looks like it's going to be pretty cool!

@MasterSandman II

Were you able to actually get on and tinker with stuff? I got to the "choose a league" or Platform? screen (remembered my password), and I can't advance at all. Using Firefox (THANKS A LOT, FIREFOX). What did you do?

I can't do much right now as the league hasn't started. I can look at stats, schedule and all sorts of things like that. It looks like I can look at trades and free agents in the league too. I'm not sure if I can add them from the website and do things like modify my depth chart though

I'm actually using Firefox, haha. Just found out how to put players on the trading block and release them!

@MasterSandman II

NO! Why won't it work for meee?!

EDIT- When it says "Welcome to Connected Careers" and you see this thing
and the "Select Account" banner, what do you do?

On my screen, I can only see the tippy top of the Wii U letter because F'n PS3 and 360's HUGE F'ING BOXES are pushing it out of frame, and I can't scroll down. What do I dooooo?

EDIT AGAIN - UGH, I had an awesome idea and it worked. I had to "Zoom Out" under my View Tab, and it worked. THANKS A LOT, FIREFOXBALLS. --Haha, "Chan Gailey - 150." Tied with the guy that The Blind Side is based on.

I wonder if I want to fire him and put myself there. Will it give me long hair? I want my awesome beard out there. AND A HAT.


HA!!! "Throw less than 10 INTs - End the season throwing no more than ten interceptions. 1000XP" NOPE.

Hey other league guys!

TheBigG told me today via PM that he'll also be playing over on Hobbs' site. YES!!

That makes FIVE NW reps! (going on 6-7!)

I'd be happy if I threw less than 10 INTs through 3 games
Posted: 12/14/12, 02:03:14
@MasterSandman II
Seriously. I'm 7 games into my offline career and I've thrown 20 INTs. That is on pro, with the CPU INT slider turned down to 30 or so after the first few games. It's helped a little but not much.

I signed up on Hobbs site too. My career is in the shitter.

Hey, you guys should start getting some reps on All-Pro! And 6 minute things!

I don't know if Hobbs invited you guys directly yet (his old HMFL Vets get preferntial treatment, sorry!), but he has a FANTASY DRAFT league in the works, too. Not sure if that stuff would interest you in addition to the SIM league. And I gotta do that GameFace stuff today. GOTTA.
