So Vancouver (Gary Garoo) rage quits, 2 - 0 in the 2nd period, and the game doesn't count.

Then, he un-friends me and blocks communication.

What's up with that ?
You only want to play games where you win ?!

Gary, you'll have to replay the game, and pull your goalie to give Detroit the 2-0 lead they had.

Also, no more of this. If someone disconnects they have to re-start the game and re-adjust the scoreline to what it was before the disco.

It's really not sportsmanlike and if it happens too much I will have no choice but to replace the GM that quits. I understand a disconnect here and there, but quitting mid-game is not acceptable.

He's lucky to be getting a second chance. This is a good, organized GM Connected league, not some random HUT game.

I blame Alex Burrows.

Because I rage quit when you beat me 5-1? My daughter was playing downstairs with my wife when I was playing, she pulled my ethernet cord out of the front the of my xbox, I unfriended and blocked you because you were being a *********, btw.

Refer to my post already, so no, I won't need to replay the game because I won't continue playing in this league. I've lost two games already including a 5-1 game, why wouldn't I "rage" quit in that one?

Way to go, champ.

Maybe in the future Niwota will tell you how he scored that second goal, which is because I put my controller down to stop my daughter from pulling and yanking on my xbox.

But yes, rage quit all the way, I'm a very angry guy after all.

Why are you being an condescending arse?

I said quitting mid-game is not acceptable, but I understand a disconnect. There's been a few people that quit/disconnect and I want to clear up the rules about it.

Anyways, no problem, I'll find another GM.

Sure hope he doesn't ever lag out of a game, if he does that I'll make sure to have a pitchfork ready for you.

Pitchfork?

Did you even read what I wrote?

I said the game has to be replayed (which is standard for all leagues) and then I said disco's happen, but if someone quits too much we will replace them.

Take a breather.

Cool story, Gary.
But I'm afraid it's not accurate. The goal was scored, and not a nano-second went by before you quit. Not only that, by the time I pressed the Xbox button to ask 'What's up?" I noticed you didn't show up in my friends list, so I went to see the "recent players" tab, your name was erased. You didn't go offline , you blocked me. I know a thing or two about Xbox live. The only way I was able to access your profile, was from an old msg you had sent me. There I saw you played Colorado about 2 minutes after our match. After that, you were "Navigating Menus". Usually, when someone unplugs an ethernet cable, that's not how things unfold.

Looking for a new GM for Vancouver.

I was insulted via PM by the Vancouver GM, which isn't appreciated so I booted him from the league and blocked him on here. I was pretty soft when discussing disco's, but let's be clear, this applies to everyone.

If you disconnect (either by accident or on purpose) you HAVE to re-start the game at that score.

I've heard all the excuses before, but they are all moot in the long run. Daughter pulling the ethernet cable at midnight, power outages, dog chewing on xbox cable, they all happen (with a very high frequency may I add) but that doesn't change the fact that we still need to re-do those games with the same score as it was before the disco.

As for everything else, the league is running extremely well at the moment. Lots of activity, a very high level of competition, it's great!

So for the Vancouver spot, the first HF member that asks for it will get it.

Also for those asking, the trades and free agency signings only get process once we advance the schedule. So in essence they'll be processed every 5 days or so.

Absolutely, everyone's been very cool and nice. Competition is tight, and makes for a great league.
And I'm with you on the disco - if ever it happens, no worries, a quick msg to re-schedule, and all is good.

Another thing I would like to suggest, is that many GM's are posting in-game the matchups they are looking for.

I strongly encourage this type of activity, and I think will definitely help arrange the match-ups.

Someone at EA must love Grabner. In every single NHL game he's a freaking monster.

I think his speed is at 102.

I call Haxors!

Also, Phoenix, do you think it's a good idea to trade away Doan and Sullivan?

Pysyk is a decent prospect, but that's about it. The other two parts aren't exactly game breakers.

Seems like a one sided trade. Maybe if you guys can explain the trade, I could understand a little more, but as it stands it seems pretty lopsided.

I'm not trying to be a dictator, but I just want to make sure the trades make sense and are relatively fair.

Damn i would have traded Buffalo for Vancouver in a heart beat.

I got my ass handed over to me by Detroit and seriously i tought about rage quitting but instead i took it like a man haha. I just hope it don't happen too much since i looked like a complete fool in the game.

Grabner beat me in ot he started all the way from his zone and managed to get a breakaway that was pure bs from ea but **** happens i have Gerbe who is fast but couldn't hit the net if his life depended on it.

Fo the phoenix trade he proposed it to me you can cancel it if you want but i would be a fool not to accept.
