I wanted to ask if some of you are interested in joining the SHL. It's an online-league where you don't control a team, but just a single player that you created. It's a bit like in the EHM-games we had in this forum before, but with a lot more players and a lot more fun. You create your player and his attributes in the beginning, you get drafted to a team (controlled by a real GM), can improve your player via training, can write articles about him, play in the IHF and so on...
One great thing about the league is that you have to invest very little time (maybe log in once or twice a weak) but can still have a successful player and that you can quit right away if you don't think it's fun without having people mad at you.
I'm not the only guy from this board playing there, Bikes (He's a teammate of mine actually ) and Duddy are members as well, as are a bunch of guys from other forums here on HFBoards.
The next Junior-Draft will be in a few weeks so now is the perfect time to join as we are looking for a fresh draft-class in order to start. There are 35 people in this class already and we aim to get 70.
It would be great if you could name me as your recruiter when you register because I'll get a little bonus then . I don't do this because of the bonus though, I just want to get the new season started and honestly think it could be a lot of fun for anyone who is interested... It certainly is for me !
If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread or via PM
Oh and btw. thanks to Chain for letting me open yet another OT-thread
If you want to put one of those two as your recruiter that's fine with me too . But Duddy is a scrub,it would just be a waste of effort and skill points if you choose him . Even though he is representing Team UK along with Bikes and me...
You choose your players attributes (scoring, passing, strength, skating, checking...) and improve them through training. The Simmer than takes all players, puts them into a file and simulates the games with a program (STHS, it's a bit like EHM). So you don't "play" like in NHL 12, but make your player and train him, like in manager games.
If any of you aren't sure if this is the right kind of league for you, let me say this: It's absolutely no problem if you make a player, check the league out for a few days and then never come back, if you don't like it. Right now we are primarily looking for new members so we have enough players to start the next draft (we need about 20 more), so you would already help us if you just make a player. If you decide afterwards that this isn't the right league for you, nobody will be mad, people actually will still be happy that the season has been started earlier because of you !
