Florida can play now if any of my opponents are available.

COL, NYR, BUF, WPG, MTL, TOR

The Finnish MacInnis* 10-09-2012 10:37 PM

What happened to the old thread II?

KeslerKrony 10-09-2012 11:50 PM

So this simming stuff really hurts my team. I swear I've probably lost about 3-4 games playing online against teams, and yet i'm 17-14-6.....

mmymryk 10-10-2012 09:57 AM

Also what happens when a game gets disconnected? I (Tampa) was playing Pitt last night, it was in the shootout ad we got disconnected. It shows the game was never played. Will it just get simmed?

I'm the opposite. I don't think my computer has lost for me. I'm pretty sure it's won 9 in a row.

94eleven 10-10-2012 05:07 PM

I am putting even odds on Vokoun getting some horrible injury during the advance and being out for months. I wish the CPU would put the backup in every once in a while when it is advancing.

The Finnish MacInnis* 10-10-2012 08:06 PM

Carolina- haven't gotten to play you this season yet. Can we play tonight?

Nashville- I have game requested and PSN messaged you twice this game period with no responses. Play tonight?

Toronto, Ottawa, Chicago- play tonight?

Crows* 10-11-2012 12:58 AM

No forward tonight?

Had no time... work is kicking my ass right now.

Will do it tonight when I get home around 8-9

Colorado, Minnesota, Florida......game before the forward......?

Ottawa


Assuming any of you do actually still play here, how about a game tonight before we get simmed?

Ummm dude you really need to back off on your calling people out because they aren't able to play when you want.

Maybe English isn't your first language but the little digs you add to your comments are annoying to say the least. Earlier you got on to me about not responding to a game request and a PSN message. Well you invited me as I started a game against another player and I didn't see the other message. I played you the first chance I had when both of us were available and free to do so. Not all the times the PS3 is signed into my account is it even me on the account. There are 4 people who use our PS3 and sometimes the account isn't switched over.

I try to play as many of the games as I can but there is going to be difficulties in setting up matches due to....well...life. Snide comments and whining about missed invites and messages in a game that has bad to pathetic messaging system isn't really necessary.

putridgasbag 10-12-2012 09:18 AM

Well a month after the game is available what do people think of the GM Connected mode?

For me the concept is good but I am not impressed with the finished product. Trade and Free Agency buttons that haven't been fixed, messaging service that leaves a lot to be desired and the slowest loading game that I can remember are my main complaints.

I can get both the trade and free agency buttons to work but it can take a while and I don't know why that is. You would think that would have been an easy fix but....

The loading and the messaging are absolutely horrendous for a game in this day and age. Having to go between screens to just check who is online and any messages, the wait times are ridiculous. See a player on waivers you might like and it takes forever to go back and check his ratings and then back to the message area. Having to download everything when you navigate away from the main screen and back is...well you can fill in the blank with the appropriate words.

You would think that if you clicked on a team that everything should be available about that team. Is he online, who he has on waivers, injuries and duration, all the ratings and stats, access to a trade screen and a record of what has been discussed. Send a trade proposal now and you have no idea if the other guy even sees it. If he responds in another form like here there is no record of the proposal for you to look at. Who did I offer?! I don't remember, hell once I get into the trade section I'll throw out a few proposals to see if anything is possible. Chances of me remembering what I sent out is close to zero.

I do enjoy the game play even if I do suck at it and the league idea. I just wish it was a little easier to move around the GM Connected part. I spend to much time waiting for screens and not enough time playing but at least I win the odd faceoff now and have scored a couple of goals... small steps.

It'll be improved. It's still a great concept. I've learned to deal with how slow it is. I just have my Ipad with me and when it's loading just go on the internet looking at stuff.....:naughty:

I am sure future versions will be better as they couldn't get much slower. I find that sometimes the load speed just means I skip the GM Connected part and go straight to playing. I can't imagine joining other leagues just because of the load times.

As long as I'm not making anything up, I don't feel like I'm in any kind of wrong. Your particular situation may be different, but we have a whole lot of apathy and absenteeism going on stand here.

Point granted, however, on the imperfect communication system provided to us.

I agree with pretty much all of this.

GM Connected: Great idea, but, well, putrid execution.

I have almost totally agree, there are so many empty holes like you would think it would tell you if someone accepted your trade offer? and you could just message someone through the mailbox thing instead of having to use psn... It is seriously like they thought of it 2 days before release and just shoved it in there, they didn't polish it our make it as enjoyable as it could be, seriously i love this game mode well the concept of it, if they just took there time made it right found everything that was wrong with at and wait till NHL 14 maybe they wouldn't have rip off there customers and tell them it's a amazing game mode when it is a half as Bullsh*t piece of crap that i still seem to find fun, so what would it be if they did it right. Seriously this had the potential to be mine and many others favorites sport mode ever but it fell flat. And i sorry to say ea will never update it, whats the point they can suck you into paying 60 bucks to buy the updated verison next year.

Most likely, next years GM Connected will be much better than this, nothing is every the best it will be in its first stage. Although I hope they will make it so NHL 14 is compatible with NHL 13 so that you can transfer your league over to the new NHL.

Yah transferring the league over would really cool, thats a good idea.
