PS3 Poll Reminder

Just reminding you to read this, and vote as it expires Tuesday, Oct 9th @ 8pm Mtn. Commisioner will make a decision if there is a tie or no one votes.

Hey guys. I talked it over with the Commissioner and he said it would be alright if I did a poll and he would agree to do this based on the results. I was thinking of doing a poll where we get to decide to:

a) Sim to playoffs.
b) Sim to 2 weeks before playoffs
c) Leave it as it is. (Sim every 2 days.)

The PS3 is not as active as it once was and I feel if we sim up to playoffs or 2 weeks before, it might become more interesting and people might start to play more. After the sim tonight, it will be the trade deadline, correct me if I'm wrong. Also, this poll will expire Tuesday, October 9th at 8pm Mtn. If you like your answer to remain anonymous, you can send me a PM, or you can post it on the forums with your opinion. I think PM would be the easiest way for me to track it. Just put the title of your answer PM / Post "PS3 Poll". At the end, I will tally the results, and hand them over to Evil Oilers.

Deadline: Tuesday, October 9th 8pm Mtn.
Voting Process: PM / Post with Title: "PS3 Poll"

Please notify other PS3 GMs if they are on your friends list so we can get the best possible result. Thanks...

I am for this poll. I really feel the activity has gone down significantly and some people who are active are finding it hard to play games now. I will listen to the answers from Ronik and I'll do what the majority wants.

I sent my PM to Ronik.

My problem with a mass sim is that the computer changes your lines and then you can't control your player development.

Anyone with games against Toronto, I will be on all day. I believe I have 6 or 7 games against players only so I would like to play a few before the sim. Also, just a reminder to pm me with your answer for the poll I posted so we can get the best answer. It
expires: Tuesday, Oct 9th, 8pm Mtn.
I will do another reminder tonight at 8 Mtn. Thanks...

PS3 Poll

Honestly don't care too much. I think the league isn't very active because most GMs didn't realize they'd have to play five or six games every two days just to keep up with the league. I think a sim to the deadline is preferable to a sim to the playoffs.

I have said that those who are active can trade with the cpu as long as they accept the trade and I wouldn't veto it. Only veto I would do is if the trade was like Crosby for a 7th round pick. If you missed out on the trade deadline, I did give like 4 days to do some trades, but only san Jose and Toronto did anything.

Being GM of the PS3 Islanders, I think we should just leave it as is since the sim will kill any chance of my team making the playoffs.

I honestly think I have a legitimate shot of going deep into the playoffs if my team actually makes it and everytime a sim is done, my team is falling out of the top 8 in the conference.

New poll:

You have until 5pm today to msg me if you are still active and want to still participate in the league or I will do some kicking. Players who haven't been on in 3 or more days will be kicked unless you send me a PM on forums that you still are active and will play your games. I'm sorry if I am giving short notice but I'm getting fustrated that I keep finding the same people never on to play a game.

I (Toronto) have a game against you, when do you want to play it?

Ah **** it, I'm out. I can't really keep up with the league at the pace we're going, and I think you'd be less frustrated if you could play the games at your convenience.

Sorry, its just i keep getting people in game complaining about not getting this done faster. We have like 15 years to play....and in order for us to get through it all, i need to make some decisions. If you cant play but want to control your team, just set it up for cpu. I set my cpu up and its pretty crazy. People would find it fustrating to play them lol.

Is your league a 25 year league? Why are you tripping out? The shelf life of an EA sports game is roughly 1 calender year. The way things are going, both leagues would probably hit 6-7 seasons before everybody moves onto NHL 14. I'm all for speeding up the process and playing games when you can.

Simming is part of the process, I for one feel the roster movement (trades, waivers, FA, draft) is the most important part of this gametype, playing other GM's is just the bonus for me.

If I want to play others online, I just hop on the online play. In GM Connected, I don't have the time and patience to wait for others in the league to be on at the SAME time to play 82 games per season. Not going to happen.

I understand the need to sim and am all in favour of simming.

The consensus in this league is if you can't play, you need to let others play against your CPU. I don't really find that fun. I'd rather games be mutually simmed than be them vs my CPU or me vs their CPU.

PS3 Trade Deadline

So the trades with the computer GM's are done and it is what it is. My big concern was the Trade deadline was Feb 23 and the commissioner (Evil Oilers) simmed that segment as was to be done. All Good.

But Evil Oiler then somehow trades for Phil Kessel and then Zach Bogosian in the next 2 week schedule and instantly sims that segment so no one else can make trades.

I thought the trade deadline was Feb 23? How is it fair that you saw Phil Kessel was sent to a CPU GM and then traded for him and Simmed ahead so no one else could even have a chance?

This seems really fair that the commissioner has first choice at trades and then sims ahead to guarantee those 2 trades. Rather then just saying I'm a complainer can Evil Oilers please explain how only he got a chance to make trades in the March 6 segment.

That does sound shady if that's how it happened.
