Fair enough guys, but one thing, I can't even get my team below 5 stars with Hasek in net, and the guy is absolute dynamite... it kinda feels like cheating!

I use Ben Bishop as my starter on my 4 star team but I can't even upgrade to SOTW Bishop because my team rating goes up even if I cut corners on other players.

It's because goalies are the biggest factor in star rating even though you can exploit a 70 OVR as bad as a 90+ OVR one.

For anyone trying to avoid ice tilt:

What do you feel more comfortable with in a game: A 4 star team or a 4 1/2 star team?

How do you combat the "tying up your center and everyone stands still" faceoff glitch?

Here's a lesson on faceoffs from a guy who has won 65.8% of his faceoffs online.

Tying-up > Backhand
Backhand > Forehand
Forehand > Tying-up

After that, faceoff rating is factored, then timing.

If you find someone tying you up a lot, then try for the forehand win. If it doesn't work then you need to work on your timing and/or get better faceoff-taking centers.

Anyone else a little pissed that EA put no thought into SOTW/TOTY players?

They literally just add the same number to every stat and end up making slow players way too fast, weak players able to check, etc. It doesn't take long to actually think out HOW a player did so well either.

SKT if the player has actually been skating better since the (massively flawed) launch stats
SHT if the player got a lot of goals in the week
HND if the player got a lot of assists in the week
CHK if the player has a lot of hits in the week (it's a stat that's tracked like the others)
DEF if the player has a good +/- in the week

Your only hope are Sens players, Edmonton flopped HARD after about 25 games.

Wouldn't mind seeing a SOTW Alfredsson or Yakupov though.

THE RULES: · 6-round draft, fill a complete team with natural positions
· Superstar rules (no line changes, auto-aim on and injuries off)
· no SOTW or TOTYs
· team changing is OK and encouraged
· 79-game schedule: 3 home and homes vs. own division, 2 home and homes vs. own conference,1 game vs. each team in opposite conference (players agree on who‘s home)
· 7-week schedule with 5 weeks of 11 games and 2 weeks of 12
· Play games in any order you please
· Weekly standings will include the first block of 11 (or 12) games, extra games “carry over“ to the next week(s)

BUY-IN/REWARD SYSTEM
· 100k buy-in, 3m pot 700k for Stanley Cup winner, 400k for runner up, 250k for Conference final losers, 150k for Conference Semis losers and 100k for the Quarters losers. Non playoff teams get nothing.

The draft is finished and games have already started.
I WAS going to post how this progresses (with rosters and weekly standings) but I don't think anyone is interested....

yeah I have no intentions of buying him for over 100k, im looking to buy one for under market value and try him out. If I don't like him i'd just sell him and continue saving up pucks.

Here is my updated team:

Toty Hall Datsyuk (c) sotw Pavelski
Toty Kunitz toty stamkos toty kadri
Zetterberg/parise La Gretzky toty voracek
Sotw jvr toews hossa

Toty suter toty timmonen
toty keith chara (a)
Sotw Gardiner phaneuf (a)

Price

So I have finally gotten myself a sid... looking to find him a home, gonna drop parise/zetterberg, bump kunitz to the 3rd line and have a second line of stamkos crosby kadri, converting stamkos to the lw. Also thinking of giving sid the captain card over dats and giving dats phaneufs assistant captaincy.

Wondering if anybody has any other suggestions?

Cheers

1st one for sure, Doughty is good but Kovy would be better on the point.
