    PSD Flyers Forum NHL 13 League

    In the off-topic thread we had been discussing setting up a GM Connected league for NHL 13 using members of the Flyers forum. Essentially, for those unfamiliar with the mode, it allows for players to join a 'league' and take over NHL teams (essentially becoming that team's GM), then make trades and play games against other players or CPU teams. Further, each team can have 24 human players for lines (or all CPU players, making you a coach, or you can play as you normally would a Versus game, if that's more your thing), essentially combining the game's Be a GM and OTP online modes (also allowing for up to 750 players in a league).

    I think it would be cool to start such a league and get some games going between us in the forum. If you're interested - and we've been discussing setting up a league for NHL 13 on the Xbox 360 so far - post here and when the game comes out we can create the league and select teams.

    To whomever moderates this forum (I come here often but generally only post in the Eagles forum, so I'm unfamiliar with the jurisdiction), if this isn't thread worthy please feel free to merge it wherever. I just think it would be nice and easy to conglomerate all of the potential players in one thread so we don't highjack something like the Off-Topic thread or Flyers NHL 13 Ratings thread.

    I'd actually suggest this be more of an NHL forum type thing. Get all 30 teams claimed as opposed to like, 7 or so.

    I've got a 360 and would be interested in playing.

    PSD Flyers Forum NHL 13 League

    That's fair. I say we let people claim a slot until tonight and then take it to the NHL forum to get other sign ups. I'd be willing to GM or OTP for an active GM so I'm flexible.

    Or we could see if we want a purely Flyers forum league and do another with the NHL forum. Whatever.

    I'd be great with that second option. One Flyers league, one NHL one. I wouldn't mind commishing the NHL one. Might even be able to get the mods to open us up a SubForum for the NHL league. That way we could keep track of things like trade block and rules and what not.

    I was literally going to post this today if you hadn't beaten me to it.

    First come, first serve type of thing for picking teams?

    I like that a lot. Let's do it.

    As for the Flyers one, I say we set a deadline for sign ups, then figure out who wants to be a GM and who wants to join as a player (if I interpreted the new mode right I think you have the option), then do a sort of draft for teams after that deadline. Alternatively, we could keep track of who signed up for the league first and let them pick teams in that order (going back to the first three from the off topic thread).

    just a side note, what team would someone pick over the Oilers? For GM mode, they are about as good as it gets.

    They are but they're kind of boring.

    I think I want to take a more middling team in the game. With a few stars, but that it takes a little work with.

    And to MacManus....I think for the NHL Forum one shortening the league season is the way to go. I think 41 games is a bit easier to complete and easier to keep people interested in. The way you kill these leagues is inactivity. 41 games means a lot shorter of a turn around for teams who blow.
