Communication Rules

Our league communicates exclusively through Discord. Both Parties are responsible for scheduling with in the first 24 hours of each advance.

Owners who miss a scheduled start time may receive a force loss at the discretion of the Commissioners. We understand that life events do happen and will do our best to mediate when issues arise.

Games that have not started within 60 minutes of advance will be simulated.

The limit for sims in a season is 3. Once you reach 3 sims you will be immediately replaced. Our Goal is to assure our members they will get the most competitive franchise experience so free wins will not be tolerated.

Note: If both parties agree to simulate the game due to scheduling or other conflicts, the game will not be applied towards a player’s sim count. Missing games to participate in live events is also excusable, we encourage our league members to represent themselves in all facets of competitive Madden game play.

Disconnection Rules 

In the event of a desynced game, a commissioner must be notified. The game will be re-played from the point of desync. Any disputes regarding a desynced game, will be decided by the commissioner.

Player Ratings will not be adjusted for any reason. 

 Regression: Abilities lost prior to the advancement past the Super Bowl week will not be restored. 

Madden Underground Challenges:

By incorporating unique challenges for each team in different tiers, whether they are offense or defense-oriented, the league becomes more engaging and enjoyable for all participants. These challenges not only add excitement to the gameplay but also create a dynamic and competitive environment, fostering friendly rivalries among the participants.

The challenges are carefully designed to vary in difficulty based on the tier levels, with Tier 1 teams facing more demanding objectives compared to lower-tier teams. This balance ensures that all participants are equally challenged and have opportunities for growth and development as they strive to meet their quarterly tasks.

Releasing players: If you release a player, he cannot be signed back to your team for 2 advances (Unless it is during the off-season free agent bidding period when all 32 owners have a chance to bid)



-No Trading players away from and back to the same team in the same season.

-Players who swap teams can’t trade with one another for an entire season.

– All Trades will be monitored By League Officials. Trades done with malicious intent or that compromise the integrity of the league will be reversed. League owners that have purchased a team must be able to manage in a way that allows competition without compromising league integrity.

 Preseason & Free Agency: You may sign as many players as you can afford during the off-season free agency bidding period. You may sign 2 free agents each advance during preseason, and at will during  the regular season. The trade deadline will be week 8 just as it is in real life. We will not hold up an advance to allow a trade to go through so plan accordingly. Failure to comply with trade rules will result in immediate removal.
