What's up Coaches,

I am excited to announce that the regular season for Season 33 is officially over, as the deadline was midnight last night. I'm going to break down each team's reason for not being eligible for the post-season, and i understand we're probably going to have some issues with this. But i said time and time again, that you NEEDED 16 games to be eligible for the playoffs. The only exception is if you had a game or two left that was not your fault that it did not get played. I also said time and time again that the forum is the ONLY way i can determine who was trying to get their games in or not. It's been this way for a long time, and nothing has changed. I left the game threads up on the forum, so if you guys want to double check you can. If you had games vs the CPU that were not played, that will be your fault and you will be ineligible for the playoffs:

PS:> I will not accept the excuse that "I forgot to put in my game stats and scores from a week ago" if it's not entered as of the deadline, it didn't happen.

1.) Pittsburgh (13-3) - AFC North Winner
2.) Houston (12-4) - AFC South Winner

The 2nd round will be the divisional, with #2 playing #3 and #1 playing the winner of the 4th and 5th seed game. And so on.

Season 33 Rule Changes (Quick Overview)

Settings Changes

1.1.11 Allowed Playbooks - Custom Playbooks & Any Stock Playbooks except: Philadelphia Eagles, Run 'n' Shoot, & Pistol Offensive Playbooks
(If you want to use the Eagles playbook, you must add formations and plays to it and make it a custom playbook)


Gameplay Changes


+ 2.1.1 - We realize that the slogan of the MOF is to mix it up, however we understand the most recent releases of the game has been more realistic than editions past. So some teams are much better at playing zone defense than man defense, so you're going to see more zone or more man from certain teams. This undermines the mix it up guideline. We don't want someone to run the same play all game, however we do understand that certain routes, work against certain defenses. So just try to play the game as sim as possible, and we won't have any problems.

+ 2.2.1 - Draining the clock is only allowed with 3:00 left in either half, or overtime. Other than those specific times the ball must be snapped before 10 seconds left on the playclock. With the accelerated clock being 20 seconds, you will break the huddle with 20 seconds left, so that gives you 10 seconds to audible and hot route. We understand that package formations, audibles, and hot routes can take up some play clock, however you are still required to abide by the rule.
(The only exception to this rule is the Mercy Rule Section 2.5.1 and the No Huddle Rule Section 2.2.7

+ 2.2.3 - We have had issues with teams running the Pistol formation that do not normally run the Pistol formation in the NFL. We realize that this is a video game, however we try to make it as sim to the real thing as possible. So we have come up with a list of teams that are ALLOWED to run the Pistol formation. If your team is not on this list, then you CANNOT run the Pistol formation. We have compiled the list from a combination of the games stock team playbooks, and the real life counterpart teams:

 

AFC Teams Allowed To Use Pistol Formation:
1. Baltimore Ravens
2. Buffalo Bills
3. Cincinnati Bengals
4. Cleveland Browns
5. Denver Broncos
6. Indianapolis Colts
7. Kansas City Chiefs
8. Miami Dolphins
9. New York Jets
10. Oakland Raiders
11. Pittsburgh Steelers

NFC Teams Allowed To Use Pistol Formation:

1. Carolina Panthers
2. Dallas Cowboys
3. Detroit Lions
4. Green Bay Packers
5. Minnesota Vikings
6. New Orleans Saints
7. Philadelphia Eagles
8. San Francisco 49ers
9. Seattle Seahawks
10. Washington Redskins

 

 + 2.2.4 - 4th Down Rule Edit:
- Situations where it is difficult to make a field goal (ie: Wind factor, length factor, kicker skill level). Inside opponents 40 to 30 yd line only.

 + 2.2.5 - Two Changes:

  • Playaction passes are not allowed to be called in back to back plays. You CANNOT call a playaction pass on 3rd down with 7 yards or more to go. (This includes calling a Playaction pass and bypassing the RB, WR, or TE animation or hot routing the RB, WR, or TE)

  • Screen passes are not allowed to be called in back to back plays. (Any screen to RB, WR, or TE)

+ 2.2.7 - No huddle offense should never be abused. You can use No huddle at any time, as a change of pace, but you should not base your entire offense on No Huddle. In addition: When you no huddle, you have a chance to comeback from almost any lead because of the 8 min quarters. So we have created these rules:

  • If your opponent starts no huddling in the 4th quarter and you are up by two scores (9 to 16 points). This means even if your opponent ran just 1 no huddle.

  • You are allowed to chew clock to combat the time that is not being used.

  • You can ONLY chew clock with 6:00 minutes or less left.

  • To run clock you must choose the "Chew Clock" tempo by clicking L1 on offense to change your tempo.

+ 2.2.8 - There has been issues with Madden '15 with bypassing the RB animation during Playaction passes. There is no reason to do this unless you are trying to cause some sort of glitch. If you do not want to call a Playaction pass, then don't call one. Hitting R2 to bypass the animation or hot routing the RB to bypass the animation while you are under center is considered a glitch in the Madden community.

  • You are no longer allowed to bypass the RB animation on a Playaction.

  • If you see the defense audibling or bringing a blitz, and you no longer want to use the Playaction play you called, then audible out.

  • If you are caught using this by mistake or on purpose during your game, your game is subject to replay or forfeit.

Coach Conduct & Requirement Changes


4.1.5 - This league uses an AIM Blast group to communicate with each other. This blast is used to chat about anything, to schedule your games, and to have a good time. We have come up with certain guidelines that must be followed while on the blast:

  • You are no longer allowed to be on any AIM Blast chats during your game. If you have a question for a staff member, you may pause your game and message them privately. If you are found on AIM blast during your game, you will be penalized in the upcoming draft 1 spot.

  • There will be no misconduct onto others on the blast. We all bust on each other, but comments taken too far will not be tolerated.

  • If you are found breaking these codes of conduct, you will be reprimanded. We may revoke your blast privileges or remove you from the league entirely.
     

MOF Complaint System Overhaul

 

Each complaint will be treated differently, there's no set standard. If a rule that was broken by a coach affects the outcome of a game we might make you replay it or a portion of it. If a rule is broken and has no affect on the game, we wont make you replay any of it, and send a strict warning.


5.1.1 - If you have a specific complaint about a fellow coach you can file a complaint. On the website under forms you can file a complaint. That complaint goes straight to the Commissioner's email and the complaint will immediately be brought up to staff. Please do NOT
complain inside of a scouting report, or publically on AIM.

5.1.2 - We will no longer accept any complaints without video evidence with a time stamp. When sending in a complaint, have your video URL ready and let us know when the rule infraction takes place.
5.1.3 - We will no longer accept any complaints that have nothing to do with breaking a rule. If you want to send in a complaint about a coach using too much of a certain play or formation, you better do research and only send that complaint if it is clearly an issue because if it is not, we will throw out the complaint.

5.1.4 - Once a complaint is filed against a coach, the MOF staff and Commissioner go over the complaint and if the same coach receives multiple complaints on similar incidents that coach is subject to removal. The games where the incidents occurred also may be re-played with the new coach.

5.1.5 - If a coach breaks a rule during the game. You are encouraged  to pause the game and text that coach to let them know, but at no point can you continue to text and harass your opponent during the game. If you have a serious issue during a game please pause, and get a staff member on AIM and speak to them in private.

5.1.6 - If you have an issue and do not file a complaint, your issue will not be handled. When you file your complaint, make sure you are calm and collected.

 

Coach Requirement Changes
 

8.1.6 - Broadcasting your game is MANDATORY: Both home and away teams are REQUIRED to broadcast their game. Please post in the AIM blast before your game begins so other coaches can watch your game if they chose to. We will receive emails once you broadcast, to keep track of who is broadcasting.

8.1.6a - In addition to broadcasting your game. After you're done with your game, you must create a highlight of the game and title it with MOF the Week # and the teams playing. This will save your game forever on the Twitch server. This will be helpful if we need to go back for any reason and see the game. Here is a tutorial of how to broadcast and highlight HERE

 

MOF Super Bowl Changes
 

+ 12.1.2 - You must play the Super Bowl in the Super Bowl stadium in the game. Every installment of Madden has the Super Bowl stadium as a selection. If it does not, please play the game in a Domed Stadium.

MOF DONATIONS

As you all know this is a 100% free league to be a part of. All of the league fees come directly out of the Commissioner's pocket. The most recent expense is the LMS website. So I am asking for a donation for the website service, from all the coaches. It is not mandatory, but it would help greatly.
