Ok, cool. Glad we all seem to be on the same page. I do think using the real rosters will make things feel more authentic (especially when you factor in managing AHL clubs and whatnot). And for our first real franchise experience, that's something I'd like to have.



Well, we'll probably do like most leagues and wait on the first roster update (assuming there's a season). And worst comes to worst, you could trade for a better goalie. I'm sure Stamkos would generate some interest. ;)


Yeah waiting for the first update would be good.

Honestly, a salary cap would be cool imho lol. Don't forget, I have LeCavalier (who I don't like), Teddy Purcell, Ryan Malone, Martin St. Louis, Benoit Pouliot, Victor Hedman, Keith Aulie, and Marc-Andre Bergeron. Damn, Looks like a stacked team! Lol

I haven't read anything too thoroughly, but my understanding of this whole "Connected" thing is that it's basically bringing everything from offline "Be A GM" online...so, I would assume that includes contracts and the salary cap. What EA's claiming to have done between Madden and NHL has supposedly made HUGE changes to the game (even with CPU teams trading amongst themselves and competing with you for prized free agents). We just have to hope everything works properly, lol

I'm also on the authentic type of game play as well. Keeping the real rosters brings that level of "arm chair GM" that we all as fans think we are. I know of a few guys that will be going on the block as soon as the league goes live.

As for the update, If i recall correctly EA does an update on release day to make the rosters the same as they are on September 11. How ever that may be the last update we see if there is a lock out so let hope that Bettman does whats best for the fans and not his ego and "legacy" (3 lockouts)

If there is no lockout, I suggest that we start the season a week after the NHL starts their regular season as that will give EA time to get all the rookies in the game as well.

Play Fair, Game Hard!

So I just read the link about no goal celebrations not being true. I just realized, Fuck that, I want to do celebrations any time I want during any break in play; this way, I can drop to a knee and punch the ref in the bails anytime I want.

LOL...yes, I support that. If I feel like riding my stick around after somebody commits a delay of game penalty, this should completely be possible.

EDIT - Wow...Rinne's rating went down a point from last year. So, he lost the cover vote to Giroux...and went down a point... Thanks EA... <3

Glad to see all the modes in the demo. Actually surprised "free skate" is in there. That'll give us a good chance to try out the new features and see what works and what feels weird. As for the NHL Moments, based on Madden, it'll probably be something like "The Coyotes have been pushed to the brink, down 3 games to 1, and heading into overtime in game 5. Win the game, force game 6, and keep the Coyotes Stanley Cup hopes alive." Or...it could be the same scenario but from the Kings perspective. They usually either want you to "recreate history" or "rewrite history".

yeah I expect a similar setup for the Moments feature. Probably one of the few times I'm ever interested in a demo, lol

I am signing up for the San Jose Sharks and hoping that my experience with NHL 11 will be enough to be competitive. The game hasn't changed too much right? Field Goals are still worth 4 points?

lol...you got it, man. Honestly, I'm not really sure what to expect in regards to the competitive nature of this franchise. I mean, there are a lot of people here who have spent a lot of time with the game over the past few years. But we've spent a majority of that time playing cooperatively. We did a few basic leagues, but they never really lasted long enough to get a good sense of who the "best" player was. So, really, this is a pioneering effort for everybody.

All right, got an owner for Carolina. My buddy Jeremy is going to join us (he played OTP with a few of us one night, can't remember who all was on). He signed up for a CAG account this morning and plays NHL 12 a lot, so he'll be a good addition to the league.

Trying my best to fill all the teams, haha. :)

That's actually a great question. It is so good, I don't really have an answer, lol. I'm trying to remember what they said in one of the videos...I think you can condense the season all the way down to like 20 games or something (since it's based off the real schedule). To me, I'd be nervous to do much more than 20. Even if we had an owner for all 30 teams, if the idea is to do multiple seasons, we can't have each season taking too long. Whatever the shortest option is (unless it's like a 10 game season) would probably be the best.

I can play usually any night of the week after 8 or 9 EST, Sunday's I'm very flexible. Only days in the fall I can't play are Saturdays. But you can PM me or send an XBox message, I'll always see if I'm free to play any other time.

I know that the custom season lengths have been thrown out which I am fine with playing 20-30 but I was doing some research and it seems like there isnt a option to play less. It has to be an 82 game season.

Some folks on OS also displaying they are upset that there isnt an option

At least the commish has the power to basically keep things moving.

Yeah, the fact that you have to play all your games within the time period that is set should keep it moving rather quickly.

I could see people getting burnt out, but yet again there is a chance that we will not have all 30 controlled user teams, therefore some games vs the CPU can be played easily

It's all speculation right now though. I could be wrong but, I think EA lowered the games. I think they put 82 just as a example for hardcore people.

The option is also there if the GM is not available to play the game but against the CPU in place of the GM (with consent of course). That works well for the vaction times, as well if life gets busy with assignments, projects, children and such.

All right, now you guys are going to make me dig up the video, lol. I know they said you could do shorter than 82 games. There's no way they could be that short-sighted. That's a stretch even for EA, lol.

EDIT - Ok, so far, I found this from Reddit:

http://www.reddit.co...sk_me_anything/

Schnaikka
Can you choose how many games that will be played in one season? I mean if there's a league with 30 human managers, I imagine that getting 82 games played will take quite some time.

KidShowtime
Yup, you have options here. I don't believe it's a custom setting, but rather a selection. I don't know the exact selections, but something like 16-30-50-82 games per season.


EDIT 2



Well, I went back and watched the GM Connected "Dive Deep" video, and it didn't say anything specifically about changing the length of the season. The main thing they focused on was adjusting how much of the schedule is playable at one time. There was a menu shot that showed that (0:49), but it was also listed under "quick settings", so who knows. Really, unless this guy on Reddit is just completely full of crap (which would be pretty bad because he's allegedly a tester or something and has been answering people's questions for a while now), hopefully we can shorten the season.

IF we can't, I feel like we'd almost need to break the season down into the number of games that we want (ie. 82 / 4 = 20.5...so 21 games). If we had the schedule showing 4 days at a time, then people would only need to play one of those games. It would just get really confusing factoring in CPU games, users that have already played, etc...which is why I'm really hoping EA isn't dumb enough to force us to try to manage something like that. If they really think just being able to sim games is the answer to an 82 game schedule, I'd like to know how they think you should handle teams that want to play every game vs teams that barely show up, when the latter team makes the playoffs because the AI won all their games for them. Really hoping these reports aren't true because it's going to create unnecessary work on our part to keep things fair.
