1st NHL 360 League signups!

Sounds about right :> When I get home I'll switch it to Sim. It'll be a pain in the ass but I'll do it just for you guys. Now let me win games and we'll be even.

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

Don't worry, nobody's bustin' your balls. You did post the rules, we just didn't look close enough. As long as it lets you change settings post-league creation, no harm no foul.

So, who can play league games with me Wednesday night? Any time > 7:30 EST.

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

You mean the speed is higher than the regular setting? No wonder I enjoyed the f'in game. Can we at least stick with the default settings, the ones that are used when you play a ranked match?

Sim(ish) settings are now up. Tweaked the goalie settings a bit.
I played offline with the settings and there were an average of 5 goals per game so its a little more 'NHL'

Defaults, can we stick with the freakin defaults. IMAGE(http://users.pandora.be/eforum/emoticons4u/sad/106.gif)

If the defaults were worth using they wouldnt have to be called Default

Ignore Green, he doesn't like hockey if there's strategy involved.

Im looking forward to the weekend so I can get some games in. Seems that, as usual, Im working when everyone else is having fun, and having fun when everyone else is sleeping. Cant wait to get a new job :p

It just makes "practicing" easier. It's fun to play offline/online-ranked/league games and have the same experience. There are as much preferences as there are players so using the default settings seems pretty democratic to me.

I like hockey when it feels like the players are wearing skates for crying out loud. It's not my fault if you need bullet-time to use "strategy".

Well, to get away from the settings bellyaching -- myself included of course, you bunch of crease control hating turds -- I'll be on most of the night tonight and available for games.

Sorry to not respond Swamps, had a friend over last night going through Condemned and didn't see your message or I would have responded.

Maybe I'll play a few games with you, faEg.

Swampy and I played two games last night, I beat him 5 - 0 in the first game but it didn't report. The second game was much closer with me winning 3 - 2. One more game and I wouldn't have been surprised to see it go the other way.

Back to setting belly-aching. If enforcer mode means having that giant splash image coming up showing me player "match-ups" and blocking the action, turn it off. If I can disable the splash, I don't really care.

Nope, you'd have to turn off fights for that to go away. With enforcer mode you just get to have big, ugly circles under your players and have small guys quiver when big guys approach. If that's your thing.

Nope, you'd have to turn off fights for that to go away.

We have fights enabled? My god, turn it off, turn it off!

Coward.

They suck and they magically make all your players fully rested. Nothing better than poor fight controls changing the face of the game heavily in someone's favor!

Whats the deal with so many games not reporting? Is it common?

Hard to say, I've never had one not report. Hell, the botched game Swampy and I played got reported, you'd think complete games would be easier to report. I blame Certis.

Turn of fights and enforcers. That splash screen nearly cost me a goal.

I have had 2 pubtard games and 1 league game not report this past week.

CF, not tonight, Battlefield 2.

Friday and Saturday and Sunday I can do.

I couldn't care less about fights or enforcers. Los Angeles doesn't need "enforcers" to stick it to any of your guys' sissy players.

I don't mind the little splash but if others want it off, then I'll vote that way too.

Coldforged and I played both our league games tonight. The first one I won fairly convincingly thanks to a whopping SEVEN penalties against the Canes and none against me.

The second game was a barn burner, I went into the 3rd with a nice two goal lead and he scored three quick ones to put him on top and an empty netter as I missed yet another face-off. It was highly impressive!

Great games Coldy, like I said, the new version of the game agrees with you

Indeed, that was some fun. I admit to getting a bit pissed during that first one pulling all those penalties... I hate not being remotely in control of whether I win or lose -- including being down 2 at one time. Sorry for losing my cool a bit there during that one :(. The second one was starting to look the same way, with his typical 2 goal lead but somehow the Cardiac Canes channeled some Real Life Canes mojo and pulled off a comeback. The backbreaker was Whitney's backhand for the hat trick when he was all alone in the zone on the power play as my AI coach pulled an ill-timed line change. I loves me some luck on occasion :). Good luck, toots.

You got your luck when the game I was ahead on crashed, Bitch.

So....rematch tonight?

You speak truth, man :D. And these settings agree sooo much better with me over the "frenetic squirrels on crack" settings heathens like Green prefer. I'll likely be around for any and all hockey, I'll keep an eye out.

I hate you jerks more than yesterday but less than tomorrow.

I will all kick your asses no matter what. LiquidPP, could you post your fruity settings so I can adjust mines accordingly? And make me some f*cking waffles, bitch!

Just set it to Sim, Green. That scary word you don't like. But you can see all the settings on the league front page. Liquid said he set it to Sim and just tweaked the goalie settings on top of that (hopefully not too much)

Thanks sweety.

mmmmm. waffles.

Poly, can you reverse the game Swampy and I played? It was disconnected and I won the game we replayed outside of the league. Thanks.
