So apperantly the guy HC'ing the team before me "Trade cheated" and sent himself a nice young defensive defenseman , and a veteran 4'th line D-man from a second account he was running.

So I finally get on to check my results, and I see a 4-3 SO Loss. No big deal, but why do I have random forwards playing where my D-men should be? Then I see the message that I lost those players, and had the original ones from my team returned to me.

I understand that this game has to deal with different time zones, but when I recieve a message timestamped at 3am my time, and the ME runs pretty early in the morning my time as well, I don't see how I was supposed to deal with this in time for my game.

Instead of waiting for the games to be played, and then switching players back, I get screwed out of a possible win, and now sit in 8th in my conference, only a couple of points up on the teams behind me.

I know it's just a game, but WTF?

Yeah, pretty ******, especially considering you're a new coach. That's an issue that certainly will need to be addressed in the future. Right now, I'd say bail out and find another team to play with, if you can.

Meh, I'll stick with the team I'm with right now, I'm enjoying trying to make this team better. But it still sucks.

George Kessog is the one who deals with trading shennanigans. However I'm not sure if he actually has the power to reverse trades or has to send something to Nik/Joe/Armann. If someone in Europe has to do it, then that might account for the when the changes happened. Just speculating don't know for sure.

PS I now know what happened to Nik and will be figuring out where to put it in message form on the TH boards.

Yeah they **** the bed lately. Messed up when I was playing my backup causing the loss to Irish and a tweak to my tactics may have caused the rest. We'll see. Our conference looks to have a few top notch teams but not much behind them, so I think I can take some time to figure things out with all my new players and still make the playoffs.

My 1.1 team's payroll is $47.8m now. That's a lot closer than I think it should be. You maxing out your flex?

How many times did we warn him about those Portuguese women?

Seriously though, I was starting to worry that it was possibly something serious, so I hope my concerns are unwarranted.

You could very well have a higher budget than me soon then. Looking to save another ~$600k by getting a new backup center and then going to move on to some other positions to try to save a few bucks. Might cut my old backup soon too if the new one plays decent his next game.

Yeah, I usually get a notice saying he's fatigued. But I just checked the tactics and he is fatigued. I don't have a choice, he's got to go into the game tomorrow fatigued.

****. If Nik didn't screw up that one game last week I would have started my backup a while back when I needed to and this never would have happened.

I'm somewhat skeptical, to be honest. He seems to get sick a lot... I've taken like, 1 day off for sickness in the past calendar year. If he wanted the holidays off to enjoy himself, he should have just said so rather than get sick. I'm gonna call shenanigans bigtime next year if he just drops off the face of the earth after Christmas and gets sick again.

He's probably one of those sickly, effeminate Euro types. He's gotten sick a half dozen times this year, at least.

I figured out who J.C. Murray is... Kuato.

You have to admit they have the EXACT same tendencies:

- trolling - especially me
- arguing for the sake of arguing with no substantial facts (and often times no opinion to support with facts)
- making backhanded insults and then playing coy after (trying to create the allusion that he is the good guy and is being persecuted)
- being a general retard in every sense of the word

More possible evidence:

- J.C. joined TH around the same time that Kuato stopped posting on HF
- Kuato easily could have seen this thread when he was here and found out about the game
- We have not seen Kuato since, as he does not want to "ruin his troll cover"

What do you all think? I am personally convinced.

I don't remember Kuato. What's his avy? That's how I recognize most people here. And for the most part I ignore trolls because the creep me out.

The only way to be sure it's him is to ask if he wants you to start the reactor.

Only for the ridiculousness of his persona. If J.C. referred to himself in the 3rd person we would all think he was funny, too.

Btw Harv, do you all play NHL anymore? I was thinking of re-upping my Xbox Live subscription soon and getting back into the game, maybe as a puck moving dman this time since being goalie with 3.5 forwards (guess who the .5 is - time is up, it is Irish) and 1 dman (still love me some Adam on D) sucks.

the team hasnt played since COD came out, and even before that we were losing steam. There will probably be another point where we all get back on. Ive been playing just a bunch of 1v1s against my brother lately.

Well, if I do get back into it I guess I will look for a new team then, no hard feelings.
