[PS3] Very Realistic GM Connected League - Sign Up *LEAGUE FULL, RESERVES ONLY*
 


GM Rules:
  • For Committed Players Only (Inactive GM's Will Be Removed and Replaced)
  • Team Sign Ups Are First-Come First-Serve (Minimum 100 posts on HF, or 6 Months Registered)
  • Default Rosters Will Be Used
  • Seasons Will Be One Month in Duration
  • Trades Cannot Begin Until There are 30 GMs (A New Thread Will Be Created)
  • Approval for Trades Requires the Agreement of Five Other GMs (Plus Commissioner)

Game Rules:
  • 7 Minute Periods
  • Authentic Post-Whistle Rules Will Be in Effect
  • Difficulty Will Be Set at Superstar
  • No Co-Ops Allowed
  • Games Can Be Coached, Played, or Simulated
  • Multiple DNFs Will Be Taken With the Upmost Seriousness
  • Complaints, and False Complaints, Will Both Be Considered With Equal Seriousness

*The Bold Proposal*:

I'm thinking of having this league run by a dictatorial approach. Having a cadre of five or more well-knowledged GM's that run the league according to a CURRENTLY undefined 'realistic factor'--vis-a-vis, that "core" or "elite" players like Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Shea Weber, Henrik Zetterberg, Jordan Eberle, etc. cannot be moved unless there are immediate circumstances that allow for it--more on that just below. Players like Mike Richards, Patrick Kane, Evengeni Malkin, David Perron, Patrice Bergeron, Brian Gionta, David Backes, Jay Bouwmeester, etc., all these and other players are open to trade. Only a very restricted group will not be open, unless that is, there is immediate extenuating circumstances either in reality (lack of performance / discontent with team) or in-game (lack of performance/ significant regression).

The only necessity for membership in the group would be adhering to a very basic understanding of NHL hockey as it progresses in reality. Based perhaps on regularly contributed restricted lists of some kind that could exceed no more players than a certain arbitrary amount--like ten. The small lists would be exposed publicly, and open to constant scrutiny. Anyone not on the list is virtually eligible for any trade of any kind. If needed, elections can be conducted to change members of the group, including all GMs and the commissioner, himself. This would prevent members of the all-powerful cadre from unfairly protecting their assets while freeing others. Of course, we could always have the lists submitted voluntarily, absent of all players being publicly sought after or of all players on one's own team.

By running the league authoritatively--or, by higher-standards, applying an even more democratic UN-style approach--we make it slightly less democratic, but also far more efficient, and infinitely more realistic. We remove the cumbersome approach of confirmations and rejections, and so on and so forth. And we also remove trades that counter the rationalistic approach to fantasy hockey. We remove arbitrary trade-caps and put an end to silly roster-freezes used to counter excessive and wildly artificial trades. And we remove the trades that make us question whether the league was created via a fantasy draft.

Hockey has its union and its cadre of owners, I say "let us establish our own super-union that attempts to make the most realistic online Be a GM Connected game yet, and for many years forward!" Again, this will not mean that trades are constantly restricted, quite the opposite. Only in the most extremely unrealistic instances will a trade-bloc be used. 99% of the league will still be open to trade. The league will merely be run in a more organized, and frankly representative and realistic manner. If people agree with this notion, please speak up. Those who disagree feel free to express themselves. I believe there are many others out there who would like to make the most vaguely realistic Be a GM possible. If enough agree to this idea, I will rename the thread "[PS3] Very Realistic GM Connected League, and I will be taking applications for membership into this all-powerful group.

Any reason for backing out? ...Just curious...

And now that I check your previous posts, I can see that you are the gentleman who pulled out of the other PS3 Connected League?

Alright, you're in! I've loosened the registration requirements to allow for quicker sign-ups...

P.S. All input from league members regarding rules and regulations are greatly appreciated!

Crimson Skorpion 08-21-2012 06:09 AM

The only thing that may need to be looked at is the 10 minute periods, as it may be too long for some. However we could try it out and see how we adapt.

No problems with the other rules.

AlexanderTheGood 08-21-2012 01:24 PM

Can we do 7 or 8 minute periods instead? I always thought that was the perfect amount of time...

Same here, all rules seem fine, but the period length seems a bit long
