    NHL13 "GM Connected" Dynasty Signups (X360)

    Important Notice: Read whole thread, then sign up, please.

    As some/most of you are aware, NHL13 for the PS3, and Xbox360 is set to hit shelves on September 11, 2012. Shipping with this iteration of the game is the "GM Connected" mode which allows you to play the "Be a GM" mode of past games online, with 30 user controlled teams. If you are unfamiliar with the mode, here is a youtube video posted by the EA Sports guys that explains the mode a little more.

    Needless to say, I'd like to start up a league with as many active (key word) GM's as possible. To do this, I've asked McJoe and Ink to stick this thread (eventually) and maybe even start up a subforum for the game. As I own an Xbox 360 console, only Xbox users are able to join. I'm more than happy to commissioner the league, though, considering it's the first issue of the game to come with this option, I don't know everything I'm able to control and I'm not going to run it perfectly. Below, are the signup requirements, filled teams, and some basic rule guidelines. Hope you guys sign up, I think this would be a ton of fun.

    Rules:

    Schedule length: 41 games, 3 game playoff series.
    I want to play as many seasons as possible. This ensures quick season turnarounds and wont let last place teams languish.

    Injuries: Off No complaining about Crosby getting hurt.

    Salary cap: On

    Trades: Human teams only No one will build a roster because they can manipulate the computer. Trade with a computer controlled team and get booted.

    Rosters: 2012-2013 opening night rosters as of Sept 11,2012. Any moves made before the league opens will be adjusted. Any moves after, will be ignored. No roster edits.

    No blatant tanking at seasons end (pulling goalie in first period, skating around like idiot, etc). No using glitch goals. You get the picture.

    Rules for activity/inactivity explored later
    Signup:

    To sign up, please, answer the following questions:

    1) List top 5 teams wanted in order of preference (make sure to check who's taken list. Answer "any" and I'll give you an unwanted team. Just give me a list)
    2) Played an online league before? What game?
    3) Date planned on purchasing the game - want to start ASAP. If you're buying it in October, maybe don't sign up right now
    For rosters, please refer these links:

    Western Conference Teams

    Eastern Conference Teams

    Remember: I want ACTIVE GM's. This is supposed to be fun. My goal is to get through a handful of seasons.


    CLAIMED TEAMS:

    Western:
    Avelanche: 1908_Cubs
    Oilers: Blue_Ninja
    Kings: Sexicano31

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops

    I suggest posting this in the Video Game forum as well. A lot of team forums do this sort of thing too.

    1) Chicago, Winnipeg, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Minnesota, Boston
    2) None
    3) 9/11/12

    What will the difficulty be on? And on the no comp-trades, I think the commissioner will be able to veto trades. Not positive though.

    1) List top 5 teams wanted in order of preference (make sure to check who's taken list. Answer "any" and I'll give you an unwanted team. Just give me a list): Flyers, Oilers, Kings, Pens, Yotes
    2) Played an online league before? What game?: Like this? No
    3) Date planned on purchasing the game - want to start ASAP. If you're buying it in October, maybe don't sign up right now: Not entirely sure. Funds may be tight. I would hope to get it by october

    Trading with CPU: http://www.easports.com/nhl/news/art...ected-revealed

    It says that trades and free agent signings have to be approved my the commissioner. I think we should be allowed to trade with the CPU but that is still 1908_Cub's call.

    It's too easy. I know every time I start a Dynasty I deal all of my picks and create a super team immediately. Last thing I want is for CPU controlled teams to become wastelands, and then someone sign up and get shafted because 20 human controlled teams went rifling through 10 CPU teams, ya know?

    Accessibility and activity keep the league alive. Plus, the hope is we have 30 GM's.

    But you will have to approve them so if it is a really bad trade then you can deny it.

    It's easier if I just say no to all trades. If I start picking and choosing, I open up discussion. Also, what if I trade with the comp teams and people think it was unfair? I'm the commish, no one can check me. Or what if someone else makes a trade and 15 others think it's unfair? And then it becomes a race to the comp teams - they just accept deals immediately. Last thing I want to do is make any of ya'll upset. Easier if it's black and white. Then you just know that you leave them alone, and I'll do the same. It also keeps them a little better ran and managed for, if, say someone else wants to take over that team at a later date. People won't find it fun to take control of a team who's lost all of their stars and has a handful of first round picks that wont become useful for 3 seasons. Or a team full of 36 year old players that a human duped into dumping on a team with long salary obligations.

    Like I said, the goal here is to have 30 GM's anyways. We've got 9 or so signed up and it's Aug 27th, a full two weeks before game release.

    I agree, no trading among the cpu . Hopefully we can get 30 active gms. Ive signed up on here before for gm mode and only a few guys were active.
