Plus, four of the better US teams are in the WL/NCHC. And we're very close to getting 4 teams in the WL next season. Although I honestly don't expect that. Now is a great time to go for it. But you'll probably lose to smetana.

Or Mallard
Don't have any 22 or 23 y/o's, but I do have a 17, 19, and 21 year olds. I was already leaning that way, but you convinced me as I'm starting to lose ground on 8th.

It looks like my next NC match is against primetime too. That will be fun.

Decided to make a change to the NT lineup, unfortunately it's costing me in chemistry. On the positive side, tujague your player will get to try to live up to Matthew Cagle.

I won my World League group

I think the guy who was in first was working with the guy in 3rd to try to knock me out. He lost 2-7, I won 9-1. We're tied with 8 points, but I easily have him on goal differential- 26-6 v 23-15. Woo!

I lost 4-0 to primetime. I played on high with a very large win bonus.

I get primetime next week. To my best recollection, it's my first trip to the round of 16, but I don't expect I'll beat him.

does anyone know how stars of the week are calculated? I always assumed it was the best sv% for goalies and most points for dmen and forwards, but my guy had more points than the forward who won this week, so I'm not sure anymore.

I assumed the same. Perhaps it's figured by best game rating?

Other Guy:
Game 1: 1G - 5.2
Game 2: 5G, 2A - 14.5
Game 3: 3G, 1A - 10
Game 4: 1G, 2A - 8.5

My Guy:
Game 1: 1G, 2A - 8.2
Game 2: 2G, 3A - 11.5
Game 3: 4A - 8.7
Game 4: 4A - 9.4

Seems to be the case

I think it's goals first with assists being the tiebreaker.

Makes sense, never really paid attention to it until my guy put up 16 points and didn't win it.

Vagrant, Humes is injured and my only backup is 23-24 and has limited experience. And I'm playing on Low with a 200K win bonus to build TS for the World League. Now might be a good time to attack

My centre had another 6 points today and now has 33 points in his last 9 games to catapult him into the points lead and me into 5th.

So close to 13th and the bad line. It's going to be close to not relegate this season, and probably a certainty for next season.

Energy is screwed on a few players due to accepting a friendly playoff game which ended up going six OT periods.

Haha, I didn't even see this until today. I played that game on low with no win bonus. I have no idea what it is about my team but they always manage to get a good number of shots on net but have trouble finishing. I was also TS stacking for the National Cup but that proved to be pretty fruitless as I handled the Red Terror 7-1. I have the unlikely Kerry Kings up again for my ticket into the Final 4. I have a 50+ AI advantage so it should be a winnable game.

Right now it's looking like me, Ducky, the Paulavets, and the winner between Nanook of the North and the Central Blue Devils. Not discounting any of the other options, just doing a bit of spitballing here.

Made the top 8 in the NC. Never would have expected to make it this far. I feel like I got lucky with the matchups.

I felt the same way last season, but still good on your part.

Sweet 16 in the World League

If you're wondering how to win in the World League, play on High and offer 3M win bonuses The games are once a week on sponsor day. So it's not like it's costing me money. At least that's what I keep telling myself

Yeah. I knew it was kind of late. I haven't been paying much attention to who I was playing. My strategy doesn't change. So I didn't even realize it was you until it was too late

In case anyone was wondering how to win in US I.1, play on low and offer 200k win bonuses I started that just to keep most games close while focusing on the WL, but I'll be damned if I'm not winning them all.

That was what I was doing this season, except I used more than 200k. It worked great until I put more kids into the lineup.

Damn it. I was really hoping to sneak by herrdoktor into first place today. Oh well, at least I saved the win bonus

Smetana, how did you play that one. If you don't mind sharing I'm sticking with Low and 200k and just destroying people. I haven't even looked at my league opponents this season. No game planning at all. What the hell's going on? Is Heavenly that effective? Or is no one else offering win bonuses?

High. No bonus. Close game, but you're right, you've been on a major roll. I'm just trying to hold down a top 4 spot, now. I'm probably due for a slump...
