PS4 GM Connected League

Hey guys,

New to the HF Boards here and it looks like there is some great topics and conversations going on here. Looking forward to some good discussions.

The reason for my post today is to set forward some ground work into creating a competitive, enjoyable, and well run Hockey League for the PS4 System. I am gathering interest from this forum and other social media outlets to see if we can get a full league started and running by the second week after the NHL 15 release (Sept. 9th).

As of right now, I do not have the specifics of the league to give you i.e. Name, Rules, Roster Type, ect…This is where you might come in. I would really like to have a group of 4-5 guys in place in the next week to help with some decision making in regards to this leagues set-up.

The one thing that I have seen working really well in regards to operating a league is to have the entire league signed up and actively using Twitter. This is a great way to communicate to GM’s and to set up games and trades. Also, a little bit of smack talk. I will be creating a dedicated Twitter account to this league and hope that all GM’s will too.

There is no better time than now to start setting this up. The PS4 has some great features that will benefit running a smooth league. The party chat option and to be able to send and receive PSN messages from your phone through the PlayStation APP are just a few.

If you are genuinely interested in joining this league, please send me a friend request on the PS4 system or email me. My info will be provided at the bottom of this post. Also, if you feel like you would like to contribute into the successful running of this league, please let me know.

I am very excited to be ushering a new era of NHL gaming on the PS4 system building and creating a successful league for years to come.

I've yet to join a GMco League but I've been planning on getting in one this year, depending how what the plan is for how many games played vs / simmed. I'm assuming you don't have that decided on yet.
Dibs on the Habs if we get to pick our own teams, if they're random that's fine too.

Hey dude,

It's pretty much first come first serve in regards to picking your team. Im just not sure if we will use the current rosters or have a fantasy draft.

It will be a full 82 game schedule with each GM expected to play all their games. Obviously there will be times where people vacation or just wont be able to play all their games in the specified period and that is okay.

Add me to PSN and Twitter if you got it man.

I would be interested in joining your gm connected league. I've played through multiple gm connected seasons in nhl 13 and 14, so I can help you if you need any help running the league.

I just think it may be a bit early for some guys to commit to a league since the game isn't out for another 2 months. I'm sure the interest will pick up as we get closer to the release of the game.

PS. I would like to be the Colorado Avalanche.

I completely agree with what your saying in it might be to early, but like I mentioned in my first post too, is I am looking for a few solid guys right off the hop to help with some decisions and such.

This is where people like you come in who would like to help. Which is great. Colorado is yours for sure. Add me to PSN and twitter if you got it dude.

I believe Montreal, Colorado, Vancouver, Islanders, and Leafs have all been taken. Just give me a team and I can slot you in.

Add me to your PS4 friends list.

Are you planning on starting this when the game comes out, or waiting the actual NHL season starts for a fixed roster update?

I think that is something that will need to be discussed between GM's. I mean if we wait then that would be atleast a month wait. If we do a fantasy draft for the team then I do t think it would be that huge of a deal. But definetly something we can discuss.

Hello!

I'm interested but I got a few questions, because I have never played GMC before. How are the game dates decided? I mean do the GMs agree some specific date and time that fits both? How many games there will be per week? (estimated).

I don't have PS4 yet but I will buy it as soon as NHL 15 is out.
Dibs on Jets.

Hey Raaka,

I think once again that will be something that we discuss and agree upon. In NHL14 each block of games was a 2 week schedule with anywhere from 4-7 games each block. Some leagues give there GM's 1 week to complete the games and others will give 3-4 days. So definetly something to discuss.

As for scheduling games. It will be your responsibility to contact the GM's you play that week to schedule a time that works best for you both. Whether that be email, twitter, PSN.

More will be set in stone as we get close.

Plus the Jets are yours.

How would the pick selection order work in a fantasy draft? Random? Or is it based on where the teams picked in real life?
Just curious because I've never done one. I'm not 100% against a fantasy draft, but I'd rather just keep the normal teams personally.

I believe it would be a random dispersal of players for a fantasy draft. But this is not final. if a majority would just like to keep the current rosters and play with their respective teams, then we can do that. Which I personally would want too.
