Hey Fear the Fin community,
EA sports has released their demo for NHL 14 and, despite being relatively identical to the previous rendition of this franchise, I plan on buying this title as soon as it is released.
Last year, I was haphazardly bequeathed the commissioner of the FTF communities’ GM Connected group midway through the season. As a result, I was ill prepared and generally got the sense, by the lack of communication from the participants, that there was no interest in continuing the season. I have decided to organize another gm connected, this time with NHL14, for the FTF community and in light of my experience last year, I am going to try to do things differently to generate more interest in the game and retain that interest throughout the year.
I would like to produce a monthly or bi monthly media release with highlights from games played in the league. My background is in audio production/film score, so I can have some fun with this. GMs will simply need to spend a little time learning how to save highlights from the instant replay function and posting them onto the EAsports webpage. I can assist people in this regard.
-Schedule will be advanced every week on Sunday sometime. There will be interruptions during holidays and other extraneous circumstances.
- Each week, you will be emailed the GMs you are scheduled to play against and it is up to both of you to schedule a time mutually convenient to complete your games.
- If you cannot come to a mutually convenient time, there are two options:
1. One person decides to allow the computer to play in their place
2. Both players agree to allow the game to be simmed
- By popular vote, one day per week will be designated that you must be available to play your games, else you MUST opt to allow the computer or a non GM player to play for you.
-Players who are consistently unavailable will be removed from their position as GM
-Trades will not be available with CPU run GMs until 2 months, real time, into the season.
- Team choice will be ordered randomly and any GMs joining after the lottery will have to choose from what is left over.
- Non GM players will be permitted once all 30 GM spots are filled
Requirements for GMs in this league:
1. An email address
2. A ps3
3. Own NHL 14
4. No Ducks fans (semi serious)
