With the way injuries are in the game the only thing I am more worried about losing a player to an injury for a long time in a completely simmed game to just losing the game in general.

The policy would have to be something like no vs CPU games allowed until the day of the deadline (not including vacant teams). And EVERY effort must be made to set up a time with the person before going that route. If they give you permission to just play the CPU, that's different. But in general, people still need to be communicating to schedule times to play. None of this is ideal, but hopefully it'll address some of these problems that we've been running into. Now, if we could just do something about injuries.


That's the key part to that in my opinion. I have done that twice now with NYR for this past period and Edmonton for the previous. I just prefer to play the person that way they are having a chance to actually win with their team.

What is the CPU set at again for difficulty?

Also just curious JZA, earlier in the week you said you were going to be on between 12:30 and 2 (or 2:30 don't remember) and then 3/3:30 and 4:30. Did you end up getting on most of those days? I ask after someone made the comment about people not showing up online. I got on each day about 1 or so and was looking to see if you were online, at least every 30 mins. So I'm wondering if maybe that's why I never saw you because EA wasn't picking it up.

Well I officially quit the other league I was in so now I'm all yours... :)

I will probably get on by 11:30 PM EST tonight if not a little sooner if anyone needs to play Chicago.

If I'm playing something else don't hesitate to send me a message and I'll switch over.

Somehow I lost Michael Del Zotto for six games. So I've lost three of my top six defenseman in 17 games played. Lovely.


I never saw anyone get injured in the games I played against the Rangers

Don't worry about it, I'm sure he tripped in the locker room or something after the game.

I doubt I'll be on that late tonight (well, most nights). How does tomorrow look for you? I haven't checked in-game since advancement, but if my dates are correct, you and I should have a 2 game set to play.

I have a Madden league game at 6:30 P.M. Eastern, but I can play any other LA opponents who may be on after that game ends.

Some of the injuries are strange... When Cole got injured for me, they never said a word about it during the game, he played the whole game as he was on the ice for the last shift (I remember because I hit the post with him with a few seconds left), and then back at the main menu he was day to day with a "Stomach Injury". I don't know if players can get the flu or something, but that's the only thing I could think of.

More about aggravating previous injuries, I was actually thinking about this the other day. I have seen quite a few players who have had serious injuries in the past few years suddenly get hurt with the same injuries in my offline GM. Example: In both this league and my offline Horton is injured with a concussion, in mine Eaves is hurt with a concussion, and Helm has a wrist injury, Crosby and Steen both have concussions as well. I wonder if EA was somehow smart enough to put this in there or if it is just a a crazy coincidence that 4 guys with concussion history all have them again.

Glad you posted this. I knew I had two games that were CPU and two that were players this week. I only remembered I had to play Detroit. I sent you a PM.

Tampa and 'Nucks... Let me know when works best for you. Tonight I may be on, but if so only until 7 or 8 EST before I head out. Otherwise tomorrow I will be on during the day.

Fuck you EA. Playing an AHL team in HUT. Outshot the AI 35-13. doubled their time on attack and had a better passing percentage. Lost 5-3. Fuck off EA.

Bear in mind that I had a trained up Cory Schneider in net, 86 overall before boosts.

Here's the GW goal by the way.

Ouch... I've been there a couple times in the Right Rockets Tourney. I had a game a few days ago against Buffalo where I out shot them 38-1. Yes, 38-1. They scored in the 3rd period to win 1-0 after I hit the post a few times and Miller came across the crease 3 times in one possession to make desperation saves.

To those who have shot me PM's this week: Sorry about my lack of response. Been dealing with some drama this past week.


I'll be on XBL later tonight though.

Anyone looking for Dmen, I'm interested in moving three of my Dmen: O'byrne, O'brien, and Wilson.

Ideally looking for third/4th line forwards, preferably a center.

I know how you feel. Hell I dropped back down to rookie and stopped playing in the tournaments for not just to build up pucks. In the tournaments I get my ass handed to me and pro is about a 50/50 chance of me being able to win. Rookie outside the tournaments I have a better chance of winning however I have had some odd losses even on that setting. After talking to a buddy about some UFC game from EA, and how he knocked one of the top fighters out in 16 seconds I'm not sure EA knows what they are doing when making the games.

Yeah that to me just shows disrespect to your customers. I feel that the Hercules Check is a bug and should have been fixed instead they make a joke out of it. EA and Capcom are why I think after this generation of systems I might be done.

LA still has 3 games left to play, 2 being against Chicago and 1 against Detroit. I can play at the usual time- 3:30 Pacific/6:30 Eastern and after, but I usually go to bed around 8-8:30 Pacific.

Predators - 4
Oilers - 3

Just played a great game with Captain Obvious. Three lead changes in the game. I was up 1-0, then he pulled ahead 2-1, then I pulled ahead 4-2, then he mounted 3rd period rally that almost brought him all the way back. I ended up outshooting him 26-16, even though he had about :20 more time on attack. Really, a pretty close game, with nothing blatantly horrible...which is as much as I can ask of an EA game, lol. GG, Captain Obvious!

Only game I have left is against Dallas. I PM'd him a day or two ago, but haven't heard anything. I'll give him some more time...but if we don't get something set up, I'll plan on playing the CPU before we advance. Not that even games against the CPU are a given (considering the two I split with Columbus), but I'd really rather not subject myself to random sims anymore after taking two on the chin simming against St. Louis.

EDIT - Man, that would be an excellent skater name for EASHL. "Two On The Chin", haha.

'Nucks, I'll be on after I'm done with my basketball game. Should be about 7:30 EST, and will be on until probably 1 or 2 AM. If you see me playing something else shoot me a message and I'll switch over as soon as I can.
