One of you need to lower your NAT. Since CBJ doesnt have access to the router he uses, its gotta be on your end. Just Youtube "[name/model of your router] lower NAT xbox live" or something like that and it'll show you how to do it. If neither of you are able to do that, I don't see a way you two can play your series.
So, assuming you two can't connect at all, what's the best way to resolve this?
Perhaps you each play the CPU at home through the first 4 games, then simulate the rest of the series? At least then it isn't completely random, and it minimizes the chances that which ever advances sustains so many injuries along the way that they can't compete.
Yup, genocide went offline just before series was over...none of em would be able to play any matches then anyway. But we might have a Stanley Cup winner 2012/2013 ready by the end of tomorrow at least, and then we get draft done during the weekend, first trades before draft though, 1 day only?
