I will try to jump on after the Cardinal game, but that may be undone by my daughter and her friend, as they don't have school tomorrow and may take over the living room.

Yes, the Cards game is screwing up my playtime too. I'll try to get on afterward, and I have like 4 or 5 games vs. people.

Oh holy crap....Looks like I'm playing EVERYONE this week:

San Jose (PsychoKillerZ)
Montreal (MrGreen--I thought he was leaving the league?)
St. Louis (JayHawker)
NY Islanders (B Dog)
Buffalo (The Counselar)

Sorry boys, definitely should have checked before now

I'm online right now for the time being, but I'll probably pop back on for another extended bit around 9PM EST

Damn Crawford and his gaping five hole...Nice game, Psycho!

As for everyone else I have games with, tonight will be difficult for me to find time to get on (5pm EST - 6pm EST is about all I've got), but Saturday afternoon (~12:00 - 6:00 pm EST) will be completely open.

I'm assuming you.....Cardinals :(....fans will probably not be around tonight because you'll be busy watching your team clinch the NL Championship?

[size=1] ...I hope I'm jinxing it. I really don't want a repeat of the '06 World Series ;)[/size]

Saturday afternoon should work for me. I'll shoot you a PM once I have a better sense of exactly when.

Cool, B Dog--I'll keep an eye out for the PM

Great game, CptDomano! I had a brief hope there ate the end I might come back and tie. But alas, the Blues fell 3-1 to the Blackhawks.

I just could not get clear shots off. The game says I had zero shots in the 1st period. But I think what really did me in was passing. You had 85% passing to my 58%. It's the main reason I could not generate much offense.

Psycho and I got our game in. 3-1 Sharks. booooooo

Boston!!! Where you at?

I can be around tonight.

Cool. I will too

I should be on tonight. Got the flu. Yay.

Got three human sacrifices (eh..games) left.

Montreal
Boston
Buffalo

Going to take a Walking Dead break then back. Unless I die first from the flu.

I think all I have left is a game with The Councilor and Mr. Green which I probably won't be able to get in today or tomorrow. I'll just set the game to AI after this post.

How are we handling Mr. Green's games since he left the league? Just simming them or what?

I assumed he dropped. I will drop him later tonight so others can play the CPU Habs.

All I have left is the CPU Habs after magnus eeked out a good win last night.

I managed to get in a game with willhouse last night, but I still have games against magnus, The Counselar, and Leroyog. I'm guessing there is small chance of getting in all three tonight, but I'll try to be around.

Been moving really slow myself. I still need to get Mr. Green's Habs fixed.

And I still have six CPU games to play!

Unless someone objects, how about I wait to roll until Wednesday or Thursday?

No objection here.

Same here--I only have the one game left, but waiting until Wednesday/Thursday this week won't hurt if others need more time. One question: How does that affect the NEXT week? Are we back to Tuesday after that?

I'd like to keep it to a week. so when I need to extend, I will just use the new start day as the new roll day.

As always, I am very open to suggestions that will keep things moving forward. But we are in December in the game, so we aren't doing to badly.

To future opponents, I would like to politely request that you please refrain from taking out my skaters at the knees. I have three of my top players (Seguin, Bergeron, Chara) out of commission and all are out for knee injuries. Let's keep it clean, people.

Regards,
Bruins Mgmt

In our defense any ordinary check against Chara is, by definition, at the knees.

Raises hand. I'd like to play the Bruins next.

I'll be on tonight if I can convince my wife to abandon this desperate train wreck that is the Cardinals' NLCS.

New patch is out. Here's what is relavent to us.

GM Connected

  • New - Trade messaging has been added to the mode.

  • Speed up Hub loading times.

  • Improved responsiveness when scrolling through the Main Menu to reduce accidently scrolling past the option players want to select.

  • Improved scrolling when looking to selecting a team on the trade player screen and select team screen.

  • Users should no longer be able to adjust the gameplay sliders during a CPU game.

  • Improved responsiveness of league search screens.

  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause a crash when bringing up the player list on the Trade Player screen.

  • Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes crash while backing out of the mailbox screen.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash while loading into the GM Connected HUB.

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when proposing a trade to a CPU team (also fixed in Be-A-GM).

Gameplay Updates
  • Separated ability for backwards to forwards pivot for ‘with puck’ and ‘without puck’ and made it quicker to pivot without the puck.

  • Poke checking – fixed bug causing players to always miss to the same side of the puck.

  • Goalies will be more aware of shots right off a faceoff in the offensive zone.

  • Goalies will have a harder time dealing with screens.

  • Ability to tune shooting back against the grain so it can be less accurate/effective than shooting with your weight behind the shot and moving towards your shooting direction.

  • Ability for players to be more susceptible to lose the puck when getting hit while skating backwards with the puck at speed.

  • Prevented desperation shots from knocking the puck away from the goalie minimizing the strategy of diving at the goalie to knock the puck loose.

  • Fixed shootout logic in GM Connected to include both locked and unlocked users.

  • Allowed BAP games to resume from simulation in the middle of a shift (fixed crash when sim intervening).

  • Fixed goals screening goalie stat.

  • Goalie has a better chance of squaring up to shots from far out.

  • Improved orientation of off-puck players in one-timer situations.

  • Improved AI behavior against a back skating puck carrier.

  • Fixed hit power sliders so only the hitter’s slider value matters.

  • Fixed AI players occasionally standing around looking at the puck when resuming from simulation in BAP.

  • Fixed BAP being taken off the ice after a short shift that results in a stoppage.

  • Fixed rapidly spinning players in BAP when resuming from simulation.

  • Ability to tune players puck control coming out of a 45 glide deke.

  • Ability to tune CPU pass error on long passes.

  • Improved puck hop behavior when it hits the boards.

  • Pokechecking effectiveness range tweaked. Players with better stick checking skill will stand out more compared to players with lover ratings in that category.

  • Tuned goalies and shooting accuracy to ensure shots in the slot/middle of the ice are more effective than shots from sharp angles.

Nice update to the iOS companion app as well

The ghost of Mr Green beat me in a shoot out. Damn him.
