Someone came in and took the Caps before you posted, so I gave you the Canes. I hope that's okay haha.

I am not accusing you of anything whatsoever but how can we, the other GM's, be sure that you aren't cheating and giving yourself players, from Calgary? (Although there is nothing to even obtain from that franchise...)

Again, not accusing you. Simply making sure.

I think trades go through the commish, so that will probably keep people from cheating.

Oh sorry didn't know that there was such a feature.

Edit: Just read OP and the list of features. Also says there is league-wide news. This game mode is going to be epic but just a question. Does this mean there is no EASHL and its incorporated into this game mode?

No, EASHL still exists. And yeah, I'm willing to run it and make sure everything is fair. And Jeremyisgood, can your friend sign up so he can join discussions?

That's perfectly fine, I just prioritized the Caps as Backstrom is my favorite non-black and gold player, but the Canes are shaping up to be a good starting team, and they have some good value for the trade market.

Yeah, I'll get him on it. Just save his space, so I have a chance to talk to him at work.

I think one thread should suffice. We could run it by the mods I guess, but might as well wait til closer to the release.

Yeah, there is no need to start detailing with trades when we are months away from knowing each teams final rosters.

But I believe we should keep all league activity in one thread if possible.

maybe just run it by the mods maybe once we get closer to the release? have the thread for everything not just trade block? would be way less cluttered once and if this does happen. Have each team make a post for example:

Detroit Red Wings:

Trade Block-->
Player A
Player C
2nd round draft pick

Looking for (desired position)

Roster Transactions:
player 2c sent down to Griffins for player 4f


just throwing stuff out there. lemme know what yinz think?
also if you want to take a player off the block or whatever instead of making a new post just edit your original


EDIT:
p.s. we should take a poll once 9/11/12 gets closer to decide if we keep rosters or do the randomize

The regular BeAGM mode has a trade block feature built in. I imagine online mode will as well.

They're basically copying NBA 2k's online association mode, which would have a trading block built in. I seriously wish we could fantasy draft in NHL 13, but in NBA a draft takes upwards of an hour, and that's only 12 rounds.

Can we do a poll for original rosters vs randomized?

I really want it to be randomized and as such gives each GM a unique situation and it doesn't make it easier for those who have a beast of a team. Also note that I am not one of those weaker team's GMs but I simply think that this kind of change would keep this league enticing and fun rather than the normal moves a GM would make based on real life such as trading Staal if you were Pittsburgh.

does anyone know exactly how it works? like, do we have to schedule times to play each other every day? or is it computer ai simulated? or do we have a certain number of days to play a certain number of games? either way im super glad to join because all i do besides 6v6 OTP is GM Mode and doing it with real people sounds like way more fun. yeah i read the info page but parts of it left me still not quite understanding.

If they DO base it like NBA.

Basically the league advances a day every few hours(I think it's 8 on NBA), all games within a certain time frame of that day will be available for you to play. You can sim against computers or play them, human games sit and stagnate until you play them OR the league advances past that day(If you have a game on November 3rd, then on November 4th the game will be simmed if you haven't played it).

Edit: Just read that and realized how little sense it probably makes to someone whose never played Association before. . I can explain it differently if you'd like.

there are only 2 options in this right?

1. both users online - they play each other (control players, or coach, or be gm watching game or w/e)
2. cpu simmed if time runs out before both online

Yes, but if you let it sim your league is inactive, games are up for about 5 real days.

Man I cant believe the turnout on this, especially 3 months in advance. It's too bad you guys don't play EASHL, that's by far my favorite mode and the HF Pens team fell apart 2 years ago.

Wow, this is pretty in depth. I don't believe for a second NHL13 will be this seamless though. EA has a terrible track record when it comes to these things.

Fingers crossed though...

It is pretty insane, but I would be fine if NHL 13 was just NHL 12s Be-A-GM with 2k's schedule system. EA already KIND of wins by letting us do co-op BaGM and 6-on-6 BaGM.

A LOT of what they have said about NHL 13 is reminiscent of 2k's games in terms of presentation, so I have pretty high hopes here.
