what schedule bug?
The schedules are the same from last season save for 2 games. They didn't add anything to Online Franchise so EA had to go out of there way to f*ck this up.
Now let's say the Vikings kick an overtime field goal during the playoffs in Madden 12's online franchise, and the Saints march back down the field to score the game winning touchdown. Due to the bug, the team that kicked the field goal--the Vikings--are still the winners. It's a significant enough bug that our league has had to ban field goals during overtime in the playoffs, which will have a big impact on the overall strategy in that situation. Now, a team facing fourth down in the redzone will have no choice but to go for the touchdown or try and punt.
Then there's the scheduling bug. This one hasn't been completely confirmed, but there are reports that team schedules will remain more or less the same from season to season in online franchise mode. If that proves to be the case, then I will never able to play my good friend during the regular season, because the Seahawks aren't on the Vikings' schedule. It's a big letdown for me, because I was really looking forward to playing him in Season 2.
No kicking field goals in overtime in the post-season.
EA needs to fix the scheduling for Online Franchise.
