    after you guys download the season ticket, search for the test GMC Mode.

    it really dont matter who you send a request and sign in as, if your fav team is there do that, if not no worries.

    we will be simming some weeks, testing injuries, testing settings, testing call ups, send downs, trades, etc etc etc.

    we can even just use this thread as a form of scheduling as well for all of us testing it out.

    also post issues you find, post pros, cons, etc.

    fingers are crossed! LOL

    I have felt like the normal NHL Franchise screen is bah. Don't fret until we can play with it. I think it will be a huge success.

    Maybe want to tag everyone as well!!!

    Bottom line for me is if this mode is even only good for A SEASON, then we should use this. I know some CPU games can be blah but I would rather play the season within NHL then do stuff here.

    Then at the very least we can make trades and adjust rosters and have injuries and all that jazz.

    Perhaps that can be an option instead of using league republic. All depends on the settings.

    i hear ya. basically the reason why i stated what i did at first about the GMC Mode. bc its simple! just have to deal with all the other crap if it hasnt been fixed. guys can download the mobile app, look at standings, stats, etc. i then could post standings, stats, in the forums as well once a week or so.

    so frustrating, bc its like they give us a tease with this mode. just dont go the whole way with it for whatever reason. grr!

    I would download it but would take me 10+ hours. May put me on a waiting list until my ISP situation gets sorted.

    sweet... so you accepted the invites you had sitting there, @fiddy14..?

    i'm hopping in a few minutes.

    my brother & i played 4 EASHL games last night and felt pretty smooth... i ended the night with 3g, 6a and 12PIM in the 4 games. not too bad. we went 2-1-1. CPU plays nicely off the puck.

    and in our VS games with default settings, he beat me 3-2 & 4-2, i think.

    Hey all. I don't have the season ticket package so don't let that be viewed as a lack of interest.

    As soon as the game drops, I'll get it and be ready to go. :)

    i think i may have played more EASHL games last night than i did all of NHL 13. i thought the mode was incredibly crappy and sloppy last year... even with poorly rated guys, they were even worse than their ratings showed.

    I joined up Fiddy14

    I am simming one right now myself to see what happens.

    No option for shortening the season. So 82 games or bust here. But, it looks like 5 games on average in a 2 week period on the calendar. 13 weeks can get us to the playoffs. Playoffs could be one of those things that can take a week or 3.

    If we average 15 weeks a season we can get in 3 full seasons. That is every 2 weeks of season advances every week. If we can get to advancing a 2 week season every 4-5 days that can get us a completed season in 2.5 months which could get us to 4 fulls seasons.

    The key will be people have to be willing to take a sim every now and then.

    To make this more doable, could we consider a shorter period length so playing games isn't as time consuming?

    Injuries seem high after one simulation.

    Simmed another week.

    Seeing about 0-4 injuries per team. A lot of smaller, nagging types that players could play through.

    Hard to say if this is normal or not. I keep thinking back to last season and the Blackhawks were pretty healthy but had Hossa, Sharp and other out for time throughout the year so that probably isn't far off.

    Sharp was a 30 gamer, Hossa had a couple of 10 day stints. Craw had a few.

    2 years ago Toews missed a bunch as did Sharp and Hoss and a few others so 3 guys per team doesn't seem bad.

    See a lot of 80's in the free agent pool. We may want to have a free agent draft to start this so nobody can take the Avs or Preds and then load up the team with free agent signings and what not.
