[PS3] HF Habs League | Looking for 1 or 2 GMs

The actual league will start September 27. We'll do some sort of random team distribution to be fair as most of the members have been in NHL13 league that ran 7 years.

League Ends in 5 seasons
Gives people a better idea how far into the future to look when making deals. Each season takes 1-1.25 month and brings us to March when people usually stop playing. We can start a new one if enough activity.

League Advances every 3 days + All Games Playable
The inevitable missed games will essentially be the 'simmed' portion of the season.

No Injuries
Too unpredictable

No waivers
NHL 13 taught me that teams can lose some of their best young players due to ai being silly...we lost a couple GMs due to this so I think there's no harm in turning off waivers in a 5 year dynasty.

Trades
No AI trading once there are inevitable players who quit. Veto system will be in place once we have a full league

http://gmco.zikforum.com/

League is up on PS3: "HF Habs League" Deadline to join: October 4th midnight

You can begin making trades.

Trade Limit
I think the trade limit we had, aka 'Avim rule', is worth keeping. I think it was 5 per season per team


1. watsatheo/Watsatheo
2. pierre_poutine/belko
3. Crimson-Skorpion/Crimson-Skorpion
4. KazeNoKoe23/Seth Rollins
5. BureSanders/Eazy
6. Avim86/Avim86
7. rbkedge/rbk
8. TopTittie/One Trick Pony
9. Damaxforduf / habs12max
10. beaverBFP / beaverNBFD
11. strych_9_ / Habitants
12. Delat88 / Delat
13. renatobernal / Koivu2001
14. saku_all_the_way / Gally94
15. habsfan0791 / Bleu Blanc Rouge
16. Allstar_44 / ReppingMTL
17. Vyse--64 / Vyse
18. Buisse_33 / N/A
19. gamingfreak911 / The Newfoundlander
20. jeddy4/ habsfantoronto
21.
22.
23.
24.
25.
26.
27.
28.
29
30.

Hopefully we can eventually go back to the NHL13 gmco forum which was pretty active when the league was going strong: http://gmco.zikforum.com/

THERE WILL BE A CHECK IN September 27th.
I think you should make it 10 seasons at minimum, 5 seasons will only take us to March-April I think. 5 seasons makes prospects rather redundant in my opinion as well.

Trade rules from the forum.

'CBA' changes:

During season trade cap:4
Trade deadline cap:3
Off-season trade cap:3

If you do not trade during season, you do not get an allowance.

5 seasons seems most realistic based on NHL 13. March/April was when people stopped being as active.

Majority of prospects/picks are/were rather useless for the most part unless they are top end. This essentially blocks teams from getting screwed over by ea's progression system by doing a full rebuild. Furthermore, older players in their early/mid 30s will have trade value since they will be able to be used in the 5 year window.

After season 5, if there is heavy interest we can always restart league with new teams with the remaining group of GMs.

Basically I want people to join if they plan on trying to win in the 5 year window. Personally not a big fan of teams that trade all their good players for prospects/picks then quit league because they aren't progressing fast enough. Nor am I a fan of old players with high overalls not being able to return anything. 5 years creates needed boundaries IMO.

I'm all about winning now, i hate when other GM's completely blow up their teams, makes the team harder to fill once they bail

Can't wait for it to start, and will the 5 trade per season include the trades at the deadline?

You'll have to register in the forum in the OP. We used this forum for NHL 13 so disregard the usernames for now. Once we have 30 people here we will run everything over there.

When do we sign up for the forum? I assume we have to wait until we're assigned a team....

You can sign up any time. Just need to make sure you're there to check-in on the 27th. That's when the teams will be randomly sorted and the league is made on PS3.

Yea 5 in season + 3 offseason. 8/team/year is more than enough as NHL13 showed.

Avim probably hates this limit.

Yeah I was thinking something simple like that. Randomize the player PSNs with that site then give out teams in alphabetical order starting from top. Whoever ends up on top of the list gets Anaheim, the bottom gets Winnipeg.

For people stopping by. I ran the league last year with the help of some guys.

We have a working chat integrated in the website that had 10-15 guys on(half the league) on any given night. The league ran 7 years and had structure. The rules are already in place and half the league knows the drill and are coming back for year #2. This isn't a game of chance, this league is established and has a returning cast. If you want something stable and active, join.

Sounds great, all the leagues i was in last year either imploded or i got booted out of for being too good (apparently picking the corners with my wrist shot is illegal, go figure)

And as for team distribution, i think i prefer the names from a hat method, everyone has a reasonable chance of getting a good team (or one they want) or getting a trash heap like Florida or Calgary.

Just figured i'd give my input. Look forward to this starting Friday

Edit: I'm sorry i completely misread theo's post...i thought he was just going to assign teams based on whatever order we joined alphabetically, without randomizing. My bad
