ya problem with trolls is you can never stop them, he'll be back under some new user name. Nice to see they finally did something about that goof though.

I'm seriously sorry about that. I never would have missed that win bonus if I was around But still. 12-1? Did you play on Low with a lineup of pinball wizards or something? I didn't think it would be possible to beat a real team 12-1 unless the other guy was trying to tank.

Whoa. I know most everyone hates him, but every once in a while he makes me laugh. I can't help it. And he doesn't affect me in the slightest, so I just let him have his fun. He seemed to get some people talking at least. The religious turn was pretty stupid. He should have saved that for his next identity.

Was the ban straight from icko? I didn't think anyone could be banned that long. And since he spammed the forums as gm667,668 & 668.1, is he now banned for multiple accounts? What a buffoon.

The funny thing is I set up the game tactics the same way as the other game. So I'm not sure what happened. The only thing that made sense to me is if you played high or with a really high win bonus.

No big deal. It would have only been 2, maybe three if HerrDoktor threw me a bone, games in the playoffs. I didn't have any TS, as I couldn't afford to save it and still get in. Starting next season I'm going to be looking at replacing my two oldest forwards and my oldest d-man. Probably that crap young player too as his AI is really bad.

On to the Semi-Finals in the NCHC

I should forget about the playoffs, right? This might be the only time I get this far in the NCHC. But my TS is down to Warm. I would love to be able to get that back to High before the next match. Freaking Paulavets are pretty sneaky, though.

I just looked at the box score for the first time. 6 goals in under 10 minutes in the 3rd? What a weird result.

Well, I sneaked my way into the playoffs on the second to last day of the season. I'll be slaughtered by the #2 seed in my matchup, but I'll take the playoff games over the playout games. If they ever need to make a Reality show about how to assemble the cheapest internet hockey team, I'm the guy they need to talk to.

Something occurred to me today. Does anyone else even bother with the 'Sponsor' thing, where you bid on these imaginary companies and then get rewarded with 46˘ at the end of each week. I feel like it's pointless and I've never so much as considered it. Is it something I should look at?

I tried the first week, and didn't win a bid even though I offered the most. After that I haven't bothered.

I'm making $10M a week - $6M from center ice, $4m from the boards. It's not a fortune, but it's something.

Its an extra revenue source coming in, I'll waste a few minutes a week going through it.

You're not supposed to offer the most You're supposed to give the sponsor the biggest bang for their buck. You want to offer the lowest price with the most appealing stadium. Or whatever that is. I've been making 11M per week for the last month.

Congrats I made it to round 2 playing both games on Low to get back to Heavenly for the NCHC match. I'm probably going to play the first game of round 2 on Low as well. I'm in such a weird spot though. I need to put my best foot forward in the NCHC(might never get back here), but I also need to win one more playoff series to get into the WL next season (are you kidding me?). So I might have to get ******** with the win bonuses in round 2

Well whatever it was, I could have sworn I purposely put my offer really low or really high to try to get as many as I could and still failed.

Now that I've secured one more season up in I.1, it's fire sale time. I'll be redefining "suck" next season.

one win away from II.1 and I'll be at home for game 2 and my TS is still in decent shape. I still throw a huge win bonus at this one and not risk this going to 3.

Seven seasons into the rebuild, the Hornets are a win away from returning to I.1.

And, barring any upsets along the way, it would seem Ducky and I are headed for yet another rematch in the championship. One of these days, I'll actually beat him.
