I am interested in starting a GM Connect League on NHL 13 on Xbox Live.
I have it set up to have up to 4 players per team, thats a max of 120 players in the league. I am looking to possibly get 29 more to join, so I can have all 30 teams represented.
For those of you whom may have purchased NHL 13 already, but have not looked into the GM Connected mode yet, here are a few details straight from EA Sports:
The franchise’s most popular mode goes connected allowing gamers to manage, play, or coach with and against friends in their own 30 team human controlled league with up to 750 members. GM’s can also take their experience with them with a mobile companion app, ensuring that they’ll never miss a single moment.
The team at EA SPORTS lists 5 ways to play:
- Against the computer
- Against another GM in head to head play.
- Co-Op/Online Team Play – Up to 6 vs 6 action.
- Control your team’s strategies with all-new systems and bias sliders.
- Coach Controls (A quick shoot button allows you to control when your team has a scoring chance.)
Each league will have a commissioner who will create a weekly schedule lasting between 3 and 14 days where all games must be completed in that time frame. Any incomplete games will automatically be simmed. Trades must also be approved by the commissioner to make sure the league is running fairly. If any shenanigans are going on in the league or there’s a player who’s a problem, the commissioner has the power to kick them out and recruit someone new to take their place. Should a commissioner do a poor job of running a league, the GMs are able to vote them out and bring in someone fresh.
I am going to spread this across the Fansided Network to our other hockey pages to get a wider variety of fans to join. Hopefully we can get a full league to play.
So if you are interested, shoot me an email, tweet or facebook message and I will let you know whats going on.
