      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Madden 13: Can you seriously NOT just play a season or franchise??

12 posts in this topic

Yeah it's really dumb what they did. You have to do the career thing and select coach. What is the dumbest shit ever though is you can't use your own edited rosters in this mode. You can't edit ratings, numbers (get ready for multiple players with the same number) and so on. It's absolutely terrible to play this as a sim football game. That said I still had fun with it.

Connected Career and selected Coach. That is franchise mode.

Is that it, though, Stream?

I mean, if I just wanted to play through the season I could by selecting it as you stated, right?

The news about not be able to use your editted teams pissess me off to the degree that I may take this game back unopenned. I really don't have the time to invest in being an online Madden player. I just want to get my giggles offline playing through a season...no RPG effect for football necessary, just let me play the season.

Pretty much I mean there are differences like the addition of the XP system. The only draw back is there is no fantasy draft for franchise. Which does suck but I prefer this year "franchise" aka Connected Career compared to prior Madden's.

You can turn off all those "RPG elements" if you like.

Is there anyway that there is a fantasy draft season? I like drafting and running with a team that is no older than 26.

And you can't play two players in franchise or season... Fucking lame. EA is always taking twice as many steps back as it does forward

Nope no fantasy drafting, no custom rosters, no editing rosters either. They took out too much IMO to implement this connected careers.

I am waiting for madden 14 for them to put those features back in plus the new physics engine will be better with an extra yet of development... Hopefully. This is EA we are talking about so I won't get my hopes up.
