My World league run is over. Dammit. At least it wasn't an embarrassing loss. Only 0-1 to what has to be one of the best teams in the game. My guys just couldn't stay out of the box for most of the first period or two. I guess my SCo is too low for these types of games.
It is ironic that we both were undone by penaltys in our semifinale´s . Taking 10 penalty´s to their 3 and conceding 3 PP goals in a 4-2 losing effort is rather frustrating. I guess the old saying live by the sword, die by the sword is fitting here, as I would never compromise my Hack and Slash approach.
We gonna get hammered vs Slovakia, as the team is completly banged up at this point. Massive energy problems along with our best dman out of the line up is a recipe for disaster, but this WC has been a success regardless of what happens.
I was thinking the playout was lost already, but if I can somehow beat both the Kings and Capitals there is a chance. Only 2 points down from 4th and 3 points from 3rd. However beating the Capitals would probably be a miracle, and ez42x10's Kerry Kings are stronger than a typical 15th place team.
Haven't paid much attention in months, but I finally did one week ago and bought a 90Q/53P (max-3) 21 year-old goalie for half a billion. He turned out to be +3 and has these specs: 102 GOA, 16 PC, 69 SPE, 12 SCO, and 18 AI wasted on DEF/OFF/STR. Plus 104 EXP.
Promoting into league II now, I would like to get to league I soon but some of my lineup is too young. Either way I'm going for the jugular with this team makeup and I'll quit once it's over.
Took the Capitals to OT and lost 4-3. II.2 here I come.
Not sure I want to even bother with the next NT election with how this term went, although once I changed things from the original lineup the team has been undefeated. That actually makes me happy and depressed at the same time. Perhaps the team would be in promotion position if this setup was used from the beginning.
Actually nevermind, I can't think like that. Hindsight is 20/20 and all.
One of these days I'll put some effort into this again. (probably not)
1 goal away from I.1, but oh well. I have a top line with a bunch of guys in the mid 300's AI carrying my team. My other lines all have guys that don't play for me anymore but I'm too lazy to assign lines so it's just a bunch of substitutes getting 1 skill of like 150+ because I'm too lazy to change the training schedule. I'm contemplating giving I.1 a run this season because I know if I rebuild I'll never play this game again.
