There really is no way of knowing how it's set up until the game comes out.

I know for NBA 2k12 you can do that, but that's a 2k game, not an EA game.

You are able to play any game in the scheduled time period (ie next two weeks or whatever it is set as).

My understanding is that each section of the schedule is going to have a handful of games based on the NHL schedule. So if you had games against the Rangers, Islanders, Wild, Bruins, and Flyers you could play those games in any order you wish but those are the only games you can play that period.

Quick question (B's GM):

Could I play with Savard? If I can, then I would look in to trading Peverley.

Thinking about the number of games we play and number of games we sim, How do we make it do each team plays say 20 games, when all teams schedules are different? What I'm saying is one team may play 5 games in one week (real schedule) while others only have two. The number of games in a period is going to be different for everyone.

So once we play 20 games, we can't play any more for the season and we have to sim them?

I like Erza's idea of 20 to start and then play the last 10 games. I just don't know how go about ensuring that teams play those 20 and 10 games since one team may have played their 10th game while the team that needs to play them has only played 9.

uhh, I'm pretty sure you can play games against the AI if the team's GM isn't on.

And if you have to play the last 10 games, some teams might not be able to due to work/school.
Depending on what you set each 2 week time period to, some people might not be able to get on at certain dates to play mandatory games.

I know that. But I'm saying, if we're only allowed to play those 20+10 and you've already played your 30 games and another team still needs to play you.

You aren't required to play 30 games but you're allowed to.

It's not that it's hard. The saying "if they're not on" made me think we were talking about different things.

So what about playoffs? Should we play 50% of the playoff games?
Like play 1 game, sim 1 game, play 1 game, sim 1 game, etc until the series is over?

Playoffs theoretically every game should be played.

That might take a while. Some series could go to 7 games.

And if time permits you could theoretically play that series in one sitting. Teams will have to set up times to play each other.

The last 10 games are the important thing here. If people really can't play 10 games in the league, they shouldn't really be in it. The first 20 isn't that important but gives you the option to play the games to boost your standings in the event simming screws you over.

I'm sure people can schedule the playoff roundings to each other schedule. I'm sure people care about the playoffs more than the regular season that they can spend some time on it. If they couldn't, they should just join a sim league.

Still looking for a 3rd pairing D man (77-81) and a top 9 forward.

On the block:
Ray Whitney
Michael Ryder
Aaron Rome
Richard Bachman
Any draft pick or prospect

Maybe we could set it to 5 game playoff series instead of 7 or something if 7 is too much. I'm fine either way.

I also like the idea of playing the last 10 games. Good for playoff bubble teams

I'd be fine with playing the last 10 games of the season as I have a pretty open schedule. But I can see how that would be difficult for some people in here.
