    Will check later tonight but Saturday it was down for me. Hopefully they haven't taken it down forever and it's just a problem they haven't been in a rush to fix. If they have then that's pretty messed up. It would still have been bad but if they had said, "starting so-so date we will no longer be supporting the Online Franchise feature of Madden 10" then at least we would have had a warning.

    Madden 2012, you guys are going down. :tongue2:

    Honestly, I'm done buying Madden. Don't like EA's mentality towards their customers at all.

    And if Madden 10 online is done, I'm done with PS3. It was my last game I play on my system. I'll sell it and gain 25 hours a week back. lol.

    This is unbelievable. Pisses me off. Has there been any word from EA whatsoever? What's going on? This isn't a 5 year old game we are talking about...don't they realize people get into online franchises...

    EA doesn't care about that stuff you're blah-blahing. Just blah-blah them your money and be quiet.



    LOL.



    Not me, man. I agree with you. It's not nice to yank the plug with no wraning on customers, especially when you spend so much time and money USING the ONLINE FRANCHISE as a selling point to get me INTO the game in the first place. If you plan on taking it away, I deserve to have that expectation set when I buy the game, so I can make an informed decision on what I'm getting. They used to support it for years, if that's changed, let me change where my dollars will go. Of course, they know that so they DON;T tell us they'll be abandoning us after a year.

    I would think the MINIMUM (not good customer service, but bare minimum) is to at least ACKNOWLEDGE to your millions of customers that you nolonger have servers. There are multiple places on the net people are asking EA for answers and EA is ignoring them.

    Translation: EA is saying "**** YOU, we already got your $60 bucks for this, so tough ****." then, as if we have no short term memory, "Hey!!!! Friends! Buy our NEW Madden game! You'll LOVE the online franchise mode!" -winning smile from EA-

    A lot like a rude bouncer who boots you from a bar when they decide to close up early. Then the next day they're trying to interest you in choosing their bar again for that night "C'moooon in!!!" fake welcoming smile.

    I hate when companies operate from a 'what can we get from our consumers" headspace instead of a "what can we provide for them" headspace.

    I won't buy Madden 11. On principle.

    They've lost a customer. But, that's okay because EA doesn;t give a ****.

    I agree. It's horse****.

    And I think the servers really started to slow over the course of this season as it was. I had issues. My game against Dupree(Ravens) the game froze on us with 2 minutes left in the first half. My last couple of games I had to restart because of ea server issues...so I think they slowly started to let it go.

    If this is how they treat their customers then I might be out too. When is that 2K or whatever nfl football game coming out, in like 2012, I heard about? You know anything about that game?

    I believe EA bought 2K so while it may SAY 2K on it, it would most likely reflect EA's business and customer service approach.

    I just tried logging on for first time in a week or so, kept forgetting, and I was able to get on the franchise server. Maybe whatever issue it was has been fixed... for now anyway. So maybe we can finish this season up if anyone is still left lol.

    Falcons and Broncos were able to play, with the Broncos losing there will be a three way tie for the Wildcards heading into week 17 if the Texans and Browns can win. Texans vs CPU, Giants vs CPU, Browns vs Cardinals, and Seahawks vs Panthers; all that's left for week 16. We have to get things going, after Thursday night I'm itching to see some offense. :lol:

    Just checked servers and still up. With week 16 the games that are left are Texans versus CPU so if ASU is still interested someone can holler at him. Giants (Fronasty, Boss's friend) also has a CPU game so Boss can talk to him. There's also Browns (BigDogs) vs Cardinals (amenart) and Panthers (Sick) versus Seahawks (Crappy Tipper). I tried to send messages out a few weeks back when servers came back up but may have missed some people. Long as some of us are still wanting to play we can remove those that aren't still around and finish out. Hate for things to end week 16 and right before playoffs after we've played nearly a full season, been so long since I played though I'm a little worried. :lol:

    Contact sick via phone. I asked him to pass commisionership to you. He agreed.

    Get a hold of him and let's finish the season over the holidays.

    Hey, I'll try to get in touch with Sick here soon and go from there. I've thought if Sick ever passed commish it should be to you Barry, but I have no problem doing it. I just know that it's been so long since we played I'm not sure who all is still around but if I get commish I'll advance to week 17 and send out some messages again. Week 17 has some playoff implication games so will give a little time there but would like to get the playoffs started here soon.

    Can only advance through PS3 so Sick can always do that and have people starting week 17 games or pass to Barry and he can advance. I should have a new TV before long and then I could play Dupree (week 17 opponent).
