Well, we have some issues we need to sort out. I'm opening discussion for everyone to resolve them. I've only messed around a bit and only with myself in a GM Connected league but we have a serious issue.
There does not appear to be a way to know whether or not a game was simmed or played. This is obviously a problem. Right now all that I have thought up to counteract this is to turn the period length up to 20 minutes, put it on superstar, and hardcore settings. This at least makes it hard for a team to win against the computer if they decided to take advantage of it. However, if two users play each other and decide to manipulate games like this, I'm not sure how to stop this.
Please, everyone start up some GM Connected test leagues and mess around with options and whatever else. We need to find out anything that needs resolved before we start it up. I don't want to be a couple seasons in and have to restart.
That's strange, im pretty busy tonight with a ball tournament but I'll play around with it tomorrow. But I was under the assumption that the commish of the league would choose how the league is played.
Well, I looked at my roster for NYI. I need a moment to collect myself before I start looking at the top three of this year's draft.
Seriously though, I was going to post a trade block but it's almost easier just to post who's not available. I don't even have enough real NHL players to ice a team and send Nino Niederreiter (who sucks anyway) to juniors. I have like 1 good prospect (Griffin Reinhart, who is untouchable because he has the most epic name ever) and like five good players. Will definitely need that opening UFA period Even crappy vets will be of huge benefit to me (to sign, not to trade for).
I expect to lose a lot of games
Anyway, here's some trade block info:
Unavailable: Tavares, Grabner, Okposo, Moulson, Hamonic, Reinhart
Actively Shopping: Reasoner, Jurcina, Pandolfo, Landry, Riley, Graham, Leduc
Needs: NYI LW, C, RW, D; BRP LW, C, RW, D
Draft Picks: Probably not available, though will entertain offers
I would love to be added as a reserve. My post count might not inspire confidence in my activity but I play alot and simming through GM mode is my favourite mode. Obviously willing to take any team, and I assure you I'll be an active part of the league.
