1st NHL 360 League signups!

Legion, you and I in week 1. When do you want to play?

I'm hoping to be in the next season. I'm off on a family vacation for two weeks starting the 16th, so I didn't want to no-show a few weeks in a row. I'll keep an eye out for the next sign-ups. Good luck everyone in Season 1!

Green and I played a game which he won 6-4, but the league didn't approve of it enough to record, so I don't think we should either.

If I'm not mistaken, I think this one has a flexible schedule, wich means that we can play our games without waiting for others...

Legion, I'll be on tonight, can you play?

You will face me and finish off last season first, flyboy.

I can add that score between Psycho and Green. I played 3 against frankie. The first one crashed so I had to reset it. I accidentally left my browser on the admin edit screen, so that might have something to do with the score not recording

Let me know if you want to replay that match or have me force the score.

Are you f'in kidding me? Force it! No way in hell I can be lucky enough to beat him 2 times in a row.

Now, now Green. Let's hear him out.

Tell me more about this 'Playing again' thing.

pp: Just kidding ... you can go ahead and put the win in for Green.

Lets go with Poly instead of an abbreviation for urine

Congrats Mr Green, you win.

I think you should switch to LiquidMercury or get a new gamertag. you confuse me!

CF, whatever wierd sexually deviant fantasy you are nursing aside (flyboy?!?) , I'll be on tonight to play our week 10, then maybe we can play one of our league games?

SwampAir => flyboy. Can I help it if simple logical leaps escape you?

PP, can you please reset the Bruins WIN over Carolina? We had a disconnect.

CF and I played 2.5 games last night, what an absolute blast! I had SO many shots hit the posts it sounded like a freaking bell choir. CF and I were screaming at the same time about rebounds left out in open creases. The game was actually quite close till the end. Good times.

I look forward to our rematch, CF!

Indeed, very fun and exciting games. I haven't yelled that much since my wedding night. Sooo many open net scrambles, little trickle shots that scooted past the post and, like Swamps said, more clangs than a herd of hiefers on acid.

Green and I got ours in and he broke my heart early with a goal at 1:03 in that destroyed my spirit. Gerber, the puck handling dildo extraordinaire, grabbed a loose puck and then dropped it on the tape of Spezza who obligingly put it in. Then the one-timer happy Canadian poopyhead scored five more just to turn the screws a little tighter. If he wasn't my Condemned support system I'd be very mad.

The game speeds a little fast for my taste -- though Green should be tickled pinker -- and I cannot believe crease control has been turned off... it's such a fun and interesting game mechanic that really adds to the fun during breakaways. Polypusher gets the genital cuff for that one.

Exactly. If you can score a beelion points in Geometry Wars you should be able to handle this. Conform.

Great job on turning off that fruity gimmick PP. I don't use it so nobody should. Coldie, back to basics buddy. Pass. Shoot. When you have that down maybe we can think about integrating more buttons into your arsenal.

Another thing - While I understand the practical utility of being able to "play ahead", I think it ruins the essence of league play. Look at the lack of game arranging here, lack of smack talk, et al.

Maybe it will improve when things get later in the season and the playoffs are on the line during mathchups?

I think the flexible scheduling is pretty awesome, so far at least...

If that's smack talk you want I can help you out with that, SwampPussy.

Strong words from the guy with the puppy avatar.

The eyes, look at the manly eyes!

Carolina/Boston game was reset. There went your only win Swampy

I asked for settings preferences and heard no complaints about what was set Personally I think the default game speed has way too much in common with canadian maple syrup but if there's a consensus I can still adjust the settings a notch or two.

As far as crease control goes, its like SlamZone in MLB. It adds too much of an arcady element to an otherwise very sim game. Its fun and all but doesnt really belong in ranked or league play in my opinion... which is why it is off by default in both modes

Your league, but I disagree about the crease control. Where you see "arcady" I see "give me a fighting change on a breakaway instead of relying on the typically poor goalie positioning."

You argument would also hold more water had you also turned off the exceptionally goofy Enforcer feature. And your mother.

All fixed, from my perspective at least

Oh snap!

Bah, the worst the Enforcer does is give you a free hook or poke check every once in a while. Intimidation from it is rare, just pass the puck to someone else on your shot

I have to throw my hat into the ring of those happy with the disabling of the crease control.

I've found the best way to deal with it is to not allow breakaways.

It used to be called Turc-control

Whoa! OK, I played my game with Frankie. That wasn't hockey, that was two teams taking turns rushing the net at each other. This thing's on warp speed. There was no such thing as setting up in the offensive zone or anything resembling hockey. It was just taking the puck with one guy and S-slithering your way to the net. Our game ended 8-4 but each team could've easily scored 20 goals apiece. I vote in favor of toning that action down a bit and making it more like actual hockey.

But this is like actual hockey, the crease control is off.

(Where's that dead horse emoticon when we need it?)

The league isn't set to sim-mode? Blargh.

So I guess I have to ask for settings preferences a full dozen times instead of half a dozen to be absolved of responisibility?

That was before I thought I was going to join. Now fix it!

Commish is German for poor, under appreciated, abused bastard I think.
