All Pro Football 2K8 Legends League - 3rd Try's a Charm?!

You should see a list of leagues. Then you can search for ours by hitting the right bumper and typing in GWJ for your search.

I can't even figure out how to join it. I go to leagues on the website, it says "Click here to join a league" and that just refreshes the exact same screen.

Thin -- I think you have to join from within the game. Not 100% sure of that, but that certainly worked.

Ok, so I signed up with one of my teams. Now, will any changeds I make to my team be reflected in my online team. Now that I am signed up, I cannot see my team, or wnyone else's team.

This is indeed true.

No. I don't believe so. I think you have to be cool with your team before joining. So that way you couldn't change rosters in season. I think you *may* be able to change playbooks midseason, but I doubt you can change major things. If you want to change them you can always ask me to bounce you from the league and then you can re-add yourself I think.

Questions like this being why this is the "Toe in the Water" league.

Yeah, there are definitely things worth figuring out here. Right after I joined, I started re-messing with my team. So I may drop and then re-join, if that is cool. Otherwise, I am happy enough with my team as is.

Once you find GWJ and click on it, press the 'start' button to join.

Once I joined it, and then you click on the league name, it say's you can't look at anything till the admin set's up the schedule. So we just have to wait till everyone joins up and DS' can then make a schedule. When I check tonight it said we still were waiting for 8 people to join.

Yep. We need the league to fill up before we can begin. So get on it.

OK, I'll join soon. If I have Earl Campbell (I had him on my team *before* it was cool) is everyone gonna bitch and whine?

Yes. But, that shouldn't keep you from it...

For some reason, if I look at the 2k website for our league, it says Im the owner of St. Louis Gunslingers, when Im pretty sure thats jayhawker. My team doesnt seem to show up (Kansas City Crusaders). Not sure if its just a website issue with 2k, im at work now so cant jump on the xbox to check out the actual league online.

I actually saw the KC Crusaders last night, though I don't remember if they had it associated with you, Bean.

Yep, something is fishy. 3 people, including our Admin. DS Gamer and myself have the same team listed: Kailua Sharks. As Bean mentioned maybe this is a 2K problem in that they don't pick up the team we have as default. Or there is an extra step that is not obvious that we had to take. I had heard there was some quirkiness to the Leagues, but thought it was over with. But again, maybe a step not taken.

Maybe all is well and it's just posting wonky until the season get's underway or something. If someone spot a correct entry or etc., try and copy and send the link so the rest of us can hopefully gleen what's going on or all is well:>) (maybe in game it is looking good. I'll take a gander tonight). (or maybe just trying to see it thru the 2K site is what's wonky).

Someone from the XBL forums for the game said that indeed, once the schedule is made, everything works fine.

I let a friend borrow this to try out last weekend and now he's out of town. I'll have it either this weekend or early next week. I'll sign into the league asap.

So you guys know, the league site can be wonky as hell and 2k does not seem to care. In the hockey league I had a unowned team but for love nor money, neither I nor the player who had volunteered to take them over could get him an invite to take it over or get it in any way. It would only list Anaheim as an "available" team even though they were not in the league at all!

Point is, you may have issues with the league page, but it should be servicable enough to get the league played. Hopefully you won't have any drops.

I should have my box back in time for season 2.

Thanks for the heads-up on this Swampy. Looks like we are stuck at '8'. Hopefully more folks will join over the weekend. I wish the 2K site wasn't so wonky so we could 'really' see who has joined and who has not. (yesterday, although I was part of a 4 team common ownership, today I'm not even found:>) and frankiemumbles 'owns' 4 teams (he definitely wants to win this thing!...:>)

I'll be joining some time this weekend. Sorry for the delay; I still can't find the cables for my 360. (They're still packed in a box somewhere.)

Yeah, I hope people join up soon. What we can do, which is a bit messy but works, is if we don't fill up soon we can all agree to knock the number of people down and restart the league. Everyone would need to sign up again, but that's fairly painless.

I'm in, but I may drop and rejoin after some rejiggering. I've seen all your teams. They scare me.

Assuming my day goes as planned I'll be signed up sometime tonight.

Tonight or tomorrow for me. Still excavating boxes.

PM me for the password.

Just sent you a PM, assuming there's still some open slots. (gamercard: ubrakto)

Well we are still 4 short. Maybe it's best to bag this league and start another with folks that have sign up thuse far. Maybe someone is on vacation or something. But we still have Grumpicus to sign (so I consider that a 'firm' and one other. But two folks seem to have 'left'. Certis is sure playing allot on-line. Maybe he'd like in? And there's that friend of Beans too.) I'll be out of town myself next weekend thru Tuesday. So it will be just my luck it'll start then *Chuckle*

Yeah, I want to play some league games, but this is a little crazy. Soon Madden will be out and I'm afraid interest will dry up further. I deleted the league and switched it to 12 teams. Join up again with the same password if you want in. Hopefully we can start *this* league soon. The name of the league is the same. Password is the same. Please join if you want to get this going. First 12 in play.

Sorry for the inconvenience. There are at least 10 people who want to play with 2 more that say they want to. So if we can't get 14, we can't get 14.

I'm in. Thanks for setting this up!
---Todd

I'm in the new one now. Go Gunslingers!

I'll sign up this evening...let's get this thing going! Thanks for all your work, DS...being the commish can be a pain (be forewarned).

On the bright side, this gives me a chance to tweak my color scheme...

I'll join up again tonight. I hope you all see that I dropped Earl Campbell to placate all the whiners and put Natrone Means Business in his place. FEAR
