Hey, I will be making another GM Connected League when NHL 14 comes out. As a lot of you know I started a league for NHL 13 and it went pretty well. We ended up playing through 3 full seasons (the first two seasons being very active). We are currently finishing up the 3rd and final season for GM Connected in NHL 13 and are going to be making two new leagues for NHL 14.
 
-The first league we are making is going to be the same exact thing as the league we had for NHL 13:
    .As many User GMs as possible
    .GMs play their games
    .No trades with CPUs
    .Advance Schedule ahead every week (most likely on Friday again).
 
-The second league will be a bit different. We are thinking of doing a sim only league. So basically the schedule will advance every day and GMs DO NOT play their games. This league is going to be focused more-so on the ability to GM and manage a team. So without being able to actually play the games you need to think and figure out ways to improve your team via trades, signings, waiver claims, drafting etc. Without too much thought so far the rules would be something like:
    .As many User GMs as possible
    .GMs Do Not play games
    .Schedule Advances every day
    .No Injuries
And maybe a rule about how many CPU trades can be made per season. (just throwing it out there.)
 
So anyway, I know there are a decent amount of people who played last year and there are also more people getting this years game, because of the cover athlete. I started this thread to get a good idea of who would be interested in playing. As of right now I know a few teams are already taken (NJD, NYR, Pens, Preds, CHI, Tampa). If your definitely getting the game at or around launch (give or take a couple days) and want to play Then put down your gamertag, what team you want,  and which leagues you want to be in. 
 
Also I put this in Hell cause i assumed it would be seen by more people but If it need to be moved to Off-Topic let me know.

I'd love to join either league. I plan on getting the game within a day or so of it coming out.

 

Gamer tag is Dandim56. I'd take St Louis if available.

I'd be interested, as last year, but I usually don't get the game for a bit until after its released so I don't have to deal with the bullsh!t before that first tuner comes out.

 

The second one especially sounds interesting, I really enjoy the micromanaging aspect of the game.

I'll also be a douche and lay claim on Chicago, assuming I have the game when you guys are ready to begin.

Chicago is actually already taken. I will write out a list of available/taken and gamertags later tonight. Your more than welcome to pick another team though.

I'm making up a list for both leagues, do you want to play as St. Louis in both leagues?

Well we'll be having two leagues this year, the sim-only league is much more about team building as all the games are simmed, and is also much less maintenance than the other league. Skill level does vary a lot in the regular league though so I don't think you would be too out of place in the played portion, if you're worried about holding your own playing online though and are a little short on time the sim-only league may be more for you, but of course you're welcome to do both leagues if you're willing and have the time for it :)

Do you mean the sim-only league or the league with playing games? Also i'm not sure about the sim-only league but I know Montreal is taken in the regular league.

 

EDIT: Just checked, Montreal is taken in both leagues.

The sim only league is filling up pretty quick. Im going to post league rules later tonight. In case anyone didnt notice, my brother (MartysBetter552) is going to be the Commissioner of the Sim-Only league and I will be the GM of the normal league. That way we can each focus on our own league. The early release for the game is Friday late afternoon so I will be setting the league up then and we can start once every joins (hopefully by the 11th or 12th.)

Hey, I'd be interested in the Capitals for the GM league. My gamertag is "Sergei Swagtron" (Yeah I know, I'm an a$$hole, yes, it is to troll people who hate that word, haha.) And this year I'm not on the stupid ship anymore so I wouldn't have to eventually dump my team.

Well the sim-only you said will advance a week daily? I don't think I can get on daily but I'll definitely be on multiple days per week so I was just thinking the one where we play the games.

ok sounds good. Just to clarify though about the sim only league, you don't need to be on every day. It's simming ahead every day just so we get through a bunch of seasons and keep it interesting. The league is more about making the moves necessary to get your team to win games. So if you notice that after a few days your team lost the majority of its games you can try to look into how to make your team better.

Alright, well I'll give it a shot! I'll go with the Panthers if that's available. (so Caps to play the games, Panthers for the sim-only)

Sure thing. Whats your gamertag? There will be an update about the leagues later tonight. Around 1130ish. The early release for the game starts tomorrow around 6pm so Im going to set up the league sometime tomorrow night so people can start joining. Hoping people will be ready to play by the 12th or 13th.

I'm the Commish for the Sim-only league so I'll post up the rules in here, just ask me if you have any questions

Schedule and Games

- The schedule will run on a 2 week tick, so there will be 2 weeks worth of games per schedule period.
- This is a sim-only league, so there will be no playing of games. Playing games against the CPU to get an easy win will be considered cheating, and if you're caught more than once I'll be forced to kick you from the league.
- The schedule period will advance every day, therefore we can get through a lot of seasons during NHL 14's shelf life.

Trading

- Trading between human-controlled teams is pretty self explanatory, I just ask that you be respectful to each other while talking trade. Please do not be rude to others in the league as I'd like to have as enjoyable an environment as possible.
- The only case in which I will decline a trade between two human GMs is if the trade is hopelessly lopsided. If someone gets ripped off and trades someone like Tyler Seguin for a player like Dustin Penner and nothing more, expect it to be declined. If this happens, which I hope it never has to, I will let both GMs know that way they can restructure the deal if they choose so.

- Each GM is allowed 3 CPU trades, but don't think that you can just rip off the CPU for Nicklas Kronwall. Trades with the CPU are only allowed if you are trading for Bottom 6 Forwards, Top 6 Defensemen, and Backup Goalies. I'll be sure to keep close tabs on who has made how many trades with the CPU if they choose to do so.

Other Notable Rules/Policies

- Injuries will be turned off; in NHL 13, injuries would pile up way to frequently and 30+ game injuries were very common, so I'm turning the injuries off to keep this league relatively low-maintenance.
- You don't need to sign in every day to be in this league, every once in a while I may send messages around to everyone just as an activity check, but you won't be penalized if you can't make it on to your Xbox every day.
- It's recommended that you add the other GMs in the league to your friends list, it's purely optional but it would make talking trades with other GMs much easier.

I'll likely make the league either tomorrow or Saturday during the NHL 14 Early Release, but I won't start simulating until probably either the 11th or 12th.
