So we can't get it stuck, but (nobody tell) I'm hearing a rumor that there could be a GM Connected Sub Forum coming soon. But you didn't hear any of this from me.

Do we have a planned start date? Maybe give it a full week, let everyone get the game, get set up before we start?

I'm excited about this!

I am planning on having a week or 2-3 days for people to talk trade, make trades.

When the game comes out I am guessing, I will set up the league as soon as I get it.
But I am willing to give people a week before they start playing games.

I have a questionnaire for all the GM's to fill out before the game's release, please send me this through PM for confidential reasoning.

QUESTIONAIRE:
1. How many games will you like to play? (Max is 82)
2. Rate your skill level in the NHL series from 1-10?
3. How many hours per day will you be on (or week)
4. Are you happy with your team?
5. Any vacations or where you will be away from your Xbox? Let me know.
6. Any other friends interested in joining your squad?
7. Do you have a microphone?
8. Your knowledge of hockey in general, from 1-10?

I am trying to make an even for everyone, so that we can all enjoy this league and not have any problems.

Any other questioning, let me know in this thread.

So, I would send this to every one of you, and I will eventually, but here's what I have come to conclusion on the rules.

Gameplay:
- You will have a 2-5 days to play your entire two weeks. If you do not finish (which I'm guessing most of you won't. I will sim the rest of the games)


For example, I play St. Louis twice and Minnesota, but in 5 days I can't get Phoenix or the Islanders to play me. Those two games will be simmed and we will move onto next week.

- IF I CATCH YOU PLAYING THE COMPUTER ONCE, YOU ARE KICKED FROM THE LEAGUE, NO EXCUSES.

- If I sim games, make sure you have your AI set up, and don't complain if you don't.

- I will reject/accept trades if need be and/or one of you gets ripped off, I will ask politely to the one I feel is getting ripped off is he is sure he wants to go through the trade, if he says yes. The trade goes through, if he has second thoughts, the trade will be declined.

- You will play playoffs. Depending on your activity or not, you will play as many games as you can.

- Any other questions PLEASE let me know.

Is it kinda unfair that, because I cant get my opponent to play against me(my opponent is not willing to play me) I have to suffer a sim loss?

Set your AI good, if your team is good you will most likely win. If your in a re-building squad you will lose, it's fair for everyone. I don't think anyone wants the Columbus Blue Jackets to win the cup because the guy who plays with the team is better then everyone else at NHL 13, but he has the worst team.

You understand what I'm getting at?

what happens if my AI was setup to play well against one team, but does horrible against other teams?

Please send out a message on the xbox @ what specific time you will sim the rest of the week, this way it gives us GMs a chance to finalize our AI strategies before the sim occurs.
