Folks:

As PK would say in his inimitable style, my call for some F1 racing went over about as well as a wet fart in church, so here's my backup plan for staying indoors during the blizzard tonight: an Ice Dragons blowout spectacular!

Since PK is out tonight with band practice, we can set aside all of our hand wringing about "why does PK hate us and refuse to join our wonderful game sessions?" and just get down to brass tacks and play a crapload of hockey games.

If we get enough guys, I'd love to sneak into our "private" ranked matches. "Enough" would be six total so that we can play three on three. Otherwise we can just do what Jimmy, Vader and sometimes GameSeven and Ace or even the rarely sighted Naples and I do and play league games. They are so, so much better than they have been in the past with far fewer shady, cheesy blowouts.

I'm sure I'll be on by 9:30 or so, so look for me and join my party.

Who's in? Note when you think you might be on if you could.

I just got the game. If you are taking new (and very raw) recruits, I should be on live tonight.

Pete, you are absolutely welcome to join us. The more the merrier. As always!

Please check your PMs. I sent you a sort of primer to the EASHL mode so you can get your basic setup for your guy in order. It takes some time, but probably not more than ten or fifteen minutes to get the initial dose of attribute points distributed for all four positions (each forward position and one defenseman). Ignore goalie.

Of course, you can just roll one sole forward and the defenseman to get started more quickly and still have a minimal amount of flexibility as to where you play in any given game, but if you take the ten minutes to get them all set with the initial dose of points before you jump in, you will be better off later tonight when you will surely level up at least once or twice. :D

Again, check your PMs.

Enjoyed the games last night, thanks. I always loved the OTP, but got away from NHL for a few years since I no longer had a friendly group to play with.

One thing I can do without in this and other online games is the leveling up. My game time has been limited lately and I like to play a lot of different games. So I can never really keep up.

Agreed mike but if you like to play the game its not that hard really to get a decent rating all i did was instead of playing single player games i do drop in games. I dont do much gm or seasons any more so for my time it fits fine and as you can see last night being lowly rated its not that bad and you can still compete coughPKcough and have a good time.

Good fun last night lads and great turn out too.

Mike you can still have fun. My guy is still a rookie and I got 3 goals and 3 assist the other night in those games. You end up being slower than a lot of people but you can pick your spots and have fun.

Yes, being a rookie is not a crime.

Being a selfish puck hog is :lol:

I swear every year I try a few games of the OTP and I get so frustrated that I can't stand it anymore. I played more GM Connected games in this year's edition than any in the history of the series...and enjoy it the most in single player or 1 vs. 1 online play, without a doubt.
