I'm gonna simplify the essentials list from last year's game so you don't have to endure a wall of text.
To join, just make a post with your gamertag and send an in-game join request. If you don't post here, I don't know if just some average joe not from HF sent a join request to a league that sounds cool. You don't need to send me a friend request, unless you think I'm a really cool guy.
The league will sim every 2 days, excluding holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
There are only 2 general rules here:
1. There will be random activity checks every week or so. You get 2 days to respond or you get booted. There was some dispute on this last year for people being here but not responding to the activity checks.
The bottom line is, if you don't pay enough attention to the league to notice something that causes a wave of "I'm still here" posts both in-game AND on the forum, then you're not dedicated enough to warrant keeping. If you won't be around to respond to the activity checks, let me know.
2. Preserve your integrity and don't do anything cheesy. This is a blanket rule. If it's something that 90% of the league would be angry at you for doing, don't do it. If you know something is sleazy, don't do it.
I mean no automatic goal breakaway moves, pinning yourself to the board to magically go from 30 mph to 0 to turn what would be a humongous hit into harmless boardplay, quitting out of games to prevent a loss, etc. I shouldn't have to tell you what's cheesy and what's not. You should be making plays because they're good hockey plays, not because they work in NHL 14. Having said that, I acknowledge that there's a difference between cheesiness and a high percentage play like a one-timer in the slot. I ask that if you call someone out for an exploit, you provide a replay with the handy in-game replay uploader that EA has provided us.
3. No trading with CPU teams. The trade AI is dumb as a bag of bricks and it would ruin teams for the players to take their teams over in the future.
As far as quitting out of games goes, I will be monitoring people's DNF. I won't tell you the boot %, because that would allow people to beat the system.
Finally, I ask that to confirm that you read the rules and understand, with your join post you add some mention of the fact that you read the rules.

just a couple of months ago i cleaned up my friends list and deleted 3-5 of these gamer tags thinking we would never have a reason to communicate again, i guess i should have looked a little further into the future lol.
Most of the people here right now were in the original Hyper League from a very early stage and may remember the fact that you were banned from the league last year after you were booted for failing 2 activity checks in a row, showing that you either:
A: Saw everybody else posting "In response to the activity check, I'm here" and thought that you were just better than them and didn't have to post like they did.
B: Didn't even check the league at all to know there was an activity check, showing that you didn't really even care about the league at all.
When I detailed why this was unacceptable, you actually said:
too long didn't read.
If you want to dispute this further, show some courtesy to the other people that have come to this thread to join up with a GMC league that they feel they will enjoy and don't clutter the thread with angry rebuttals about something that happened 9 months ago, and take it up with me in a PM. I will not speak of this matter again.
