APF2k8 - Legends League S1 - Championship Fubarred?

Hey guys. So I went in like usually and advanced the schedule forward. In its infinite wisdom, 2k decided that Gumbie deserved to play for the championship. Criminy.

Needless to say I'm frustrated and I'm busy tonight. I can't figure out how to roll it back or change it.

So this morning I performed Admin delegation, giving admin rights to parties that would be invested in this (frankie and Slumberland) and a vet of these games who might know what to do (Grumpicus).

If you guys want to take a stab at it, then please do. Otherwise we might have to play this one on the side, which kind of bites because I think there is an achievement for winning an online league. See what you guys can do. I'm at a loss.

I'll hit up the 2k support forums later, but right now I'm too busy. Today is crazy.

Huh? That sounds kooky beyond belief.

I'll take a look at it tonight if nothing shows up in this thread saying it's fixed.

FYI, I looked in-game and there weren't too many options. On the website, there's a function to set the opponents of a particular game but for some reason, Slumberland (and Ruthlessmuffin, by the way) doesn't show up in the drop-down list. I've sent a message to 2k via the Support interface. I'll report back if I hear anything. Sorry I didn't have better news.

There's no reason we can't start up Season 2 while we wait though.

It kind of comes down to how we want to handle things. I'm happy to start season 2 (or let someone start if you prefer a commish change). However, I was hoping we could get closure to Season 1 first. Even if that meant the two players playing the game on the side and reporting back with the results. That is, of course, unless they'd like to wait to see if this is fixable and thus they can get the achievements for winning an online league (at least I think there's one).

I'd rather wait and see if it can get resolved. I'm no achievement whore, but that's a nice one to have a shot at.

Whoo I'm in the championship! 2k has taken pity on my horrible record!

Lol, seriously though hope it's fixable and you guys get the game in.

I don't care on the side or on the league site. It's time for me and you Slumberland, one on one winner take all,I can play tonight after 10 eastern or we can wait up to you.

Okay then!

Any chance you can play earlier?

Sorry we couldn't figure out the snafu. Either way this site will know who won. More importantly, YOU will know.

If Frankie gets the win, we can assign him as the winner on the league site and he can get the achievement. If not... we'll see if 2k ever gets back to me.

Frankimumbles... not sure of your Live tag. Mine matches my GWJ username. In any case, I want to keep watching the baseball game, so we can play it by ear later tonight, or more likely schedule something for early this week.

Frankie, how is tonight for you?

Regarding the site... is there any chance that the site says one thing, but when I log in and go to the league interface on Live, that things will be correct? It wouldn't be the first time that the website was displaying nonsense.

No. Unfortunately. I rolled the playoffs forward via the game. Inside the game the brackets show gumbie. I spent around an hour that night trying to figure out what happened. I put in a support email to 2k. I think it just is what it is. I thought about dropping Gumbie from the league since the season is over, to see what would happen. But I'm worried that would fubar the league worse. That's why I delegated to others to check it out. I exhausted all things I could think of trying.

Frankie, are you free tonight (Tuesday)?

Quick update. I emailed 2k and got this back. There's a chance that maybe this gets fixed. I'll let you guys know so you can play within the league if it does.

Hello,

What teams should be in the championship game?

Subject: HUGE Problem with All Pro Football, please help!!

I'm a huge booster of 2k sports. I buy all their games. But this is
really maddening. My friends and I (14 of us) just got through a season online
in All Pro Football 2k8. Everything was going great until the championship.
In the semi-final one of the winners DIDN'T go to the championship. The
system just randomly picked someone else from the league who didn't even
make the playoffs, when I went to advance the schedule. Now I can't roll
the schedule back. I don't know what to do. Is there anything you guys
can do?

Our league is GWJ Legends S1.

Hey, just happened to check the league page, and it seems they have fixed the game! Nice job, DS, and kudos to 2K for taking the time to correct this! What are the odds EA even responds, let alone fix something like this? Well, they would be zero, since EA can't even take the time to include online leagues!

Good luck, Frankie and Slumber!

Awesome. This is great news. Let the game begin!!! I'll be excited to see how this turns out. Good luck to both teams. Major bragging rights are on the line.

So are you guys on for tonight? I'm anxious to see who gets crowned our first APF2k8 champion. Frankie is tough. He manhandled me, whereas I barely lost to Slumberland. I will be interested to see how this goes.

I'm free tonight. Any time. Chime in, Frankie.

Slumberland, Hey sorry I sent you a friend request thought you would get in touch with me through voice mail. I can play tonight around 10 eastern. The Nets have there operner tonight, and I can play right after that it should be over around 10 or there abouts. If this isn't good for you, then I can play tomorrow at 9est let me know thanks.

10 est is good for me... I'll look for you!

Well, it's done.

The Lancers' defense showed up tonight, and led us to a 31-7 win in the championship game. The tone was set early with a three and out on the Americans' first drive, followed by a 76-yard TD run from Campbell on L.A.'s first play from scrimmage. Frankiemumbles tied it early in the 2nd quarter on a run from Ottis Anderson, but wouldn't score again. The Lancers kept James Lofton and Anderson in check, got the ball back at the half and took advantage to go up by three scores, and then were able to play if safe from then on.

I suspect that me without Earl Campbell will be a bit like Joe Torre without a 200 million dollar payroll, though.

Congratulations Slumber!!!

Great season guys. Nice to see this one go through the end....and here's looking to season 2!!!

Huzzah!

By the by, do the results need to be ratified by the commish? I haven't gotten the requisite achievement yet.

You know, I was looking into that yesterday. First I checked to see if you had the achievement. Then I checked to see if it looked like it was on the list of things not yet unlocked. I didn't see it there. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see it. So maybe I just made that up, but I thought there was one. Anyway, in the game I couldn't see any option to do anything. When you go into the season it says you're the champion and shows a trophy and that's it.

A little bit of a downer too, because I was hoping it would name the league MVP or stuff like that.

Oh, it's there: We are the Champions-Win an Online League or Tournament - 50 G - Locked

Not a big deal. I figure the 2K admin's override to correct the participants had something to do with it.

Doh! You're right. I see it now. Easier to find in my web browser. Well, yeah. Hmmm... Maybe it did have something to do with 2k tinkering around with the league to make the playoffs correct. There is really nothing I see that I can do to the season at this point. The only option it gives me (and you can check this as you're delegated currently, Slumberland) is to restart the league with the same teams. Maybe that unlocks it and we should try it. Or maybe it just wipes out all of our stats, etc. from this season. I don't know.

It'd probably wipe out the stats. Leave it alone, I guess.

Have you tried logging back into that League? Maybe to see if it had to report the results and then waited for you to get back in to communicate with your box?
