Welp, looks like my risk was rewarded when I took the Rangers lol. I'm not gonna lie, I totally picked the Rangers bc of their goalie and I was pretty sure they'd be getting Nash. Little over a month away boys (and girls?)!!

New info was released today.

The basics:

Regarding how scheduling works:

http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/li....page#24238105



I must say, if everyone is active, this could be really fun. Except for me, who picked Columbus . No winnin' for Mackinnon?

Also, who will be the commish?

So what are we going to do, play all games, play some of the games, or sim the whole thing? I vote sim. Playing removes some of the fun of playing a simulation, considering we're not all the same talent levels.

I'd prefer playing some games. This isn't EHM.

Shorter reveal, with the same basic idea.

The way I see it, option #4 & #5 would be dreadfully boring in a 30-team league, and will not likely be played. 5 might be okay for EHM fanboys, but the coaching thing looks like a total gimmick.


So it's essentially....

Player VS Computer (Glitching, no interaction)
Player VS Player (Scheduling nightmare for a league with 30 teams)
Co-Op (Interesting but no idea how that would look or work)


Maybe would should have a poll?

It would probably have to be VS Computers or Co-op. PvP for each game seems like an impossibility. I vote Co-Op.

I think you can play all 5 ways. If a GM of a team you are scheduled to play in the tick timeframe is online, you can play him. If no ones online, you can play against the CPU. Or coach, or sim. However I think I read that each GM sets weather he would prefer to play, sim or a mix of playing/simming but don't quote me on that...I'm not sure if it matters anyway.


Edit: Also, how many of you are planning on having a bunch of guys playing with you? Not sure I like the idea of 6 guys being able to come in and play.

Co-op shouldn't be allowed. If people are planning on being really active, I think playing all 82 games would be epic. I was gonna say we should play 30-60 games (Once, maybe twice, against each team), but then I started thinking, "Well, you're only going to play some teams out of conference once, and then when you start playing the same guy up to six times, you're going to want revenge if he beats you the first and second time. It could become really competitive and even rivalry-like".

Yea, it's going to be a little less fun for someone that isn't that good at the game, but by playing the game, you get better. It would also allow for someone that didn't get a star studded team to dominate a star studded team, assuming the player controlling the lesser team was better at the game than the user with the greater team.

TBH, I already have little faith in this panning out, mainly bc of my past experience with these types of leagues. 30 users, all needing to play 82 games, is asking a lot, even from the most hardcore and dedicated enthusiast.

Now that more details have come out, maybe we should consider branching off into new "leagues". If half of you want to just sim, while the other half wants to play all the games, it would be wiser to split up. Hell, it might even be smarter to just run a league with 5-10 players. The probability of participation will likely be higher with fewer users.

You can play and Sim. If people want to not play a lot of games it'll be fine. Im not expecting people to play more than 30 games in a season tbh. The league won't suffer from that either.

Dude, it takes like 20-30 minutes to play a game. I could easily get on and play 5-10 games a night. Personally, I'll be playing every single game on my schedule.

Actually, if you can choose to play or sim, that'd work for me. People that aren't active/or that good can sim, and people that want to play can play. Either way, I want to be in a 30 person/team league. That's the fun part of this. If some people can't play a lot of these games, then they can just sim them.

Depending on the timeframe of the tick you'll probably only be able to play 7 games a day. Then you'll have to just wait until the season advances, or everyone else plays their games.

Yeah, it's not like people that do play will have to play 10 games a night. It's a staggered process.

If you want Calgary, I'll take Philly. Doesn't really matter to me.

If Phil Kessel is going to be the best piece you get from trading one of those 2, maybe you shouldn't do it.

I was thinking kessel, grabs for #2 center, gardener, Riley, and a first. Leafs have a bunch of wingers, #2 centers, and defenseman. Plus a line of Neal cros/malks kessel would be pretty sick.

Make sure the guy knows he's not going to get fair trade for it. 1 first probably wouldn't do it for me. Plus, I wouldn't even be making deals until we see some ratings on these prospects you want.
