    We will be advancing to the CCG's no later than tomorrow evening, and I would expect us to get through the bowls in a day or so (depending on the number of user vs user matchups).

    Based on that we could be ready for an offseason night as early as Wednesday night.

    Please vote on your availability.

    I might not be able to do Wednesday based on my Weight loss challenge. Therefore I voted Thursday. However if it is Wed, I will try and get out asap.

    Something we've done in my prior leagues that is very helpful, is that if you can't be there for an offseason night, give your gamertag login information to someone in the dynasty you trust (hopefully most everyone after a while) and give them instructions on what you need done for the offseason (such as position changes, recruiting, etc). That way we keep the process moving and you don't get hosed out of the process entirely. We did that for the last 6-8 seasons of Trifecta and it worked great.

    If you need a stand-in, you can send me your info via pm and I'd be happy to help you out.

    Also - It's nice to have everyone in a chat for the offseason, but I've heard that the dynasty chat isn't working on this years game (shock!).

    How many of you guys could do a skype call for the offseason night?

    Hey can you PM me, or tell me where to change my login info so I could potentially use this dound the road? Also, would this stand in need to a TSO community member?

    I can do either night, if we do wed can we wait until 9:15 pac time so I can be 100% there on time?

    My preference would be to have your stand-in be a TSO guy, that way I can trust that they will know the rules of our league. In any case, any mistakes made by a stand-in you would be responsible for.

    I'll shoot you a pm, and we may not start the offseason right on time at 9pm. If we know you will be running slightly late we will hold up the first advance until you are there. As always, communication here on the forums is key. Generally, what we'll do is advance to a stage the morning of the offseason night to get a headstart, and then look to be ready to move to the next stage as close to 9pm as possible.

    Wednesday is my band's rehearsal night. (Every Wed.) It's actually the only night thats ever bad for me, other than the one or two weekends a month where we have a gig on a Friday or Saturday night.

    (EDIT: Duh, I forgot you guys are talking PST. I can do either night, as we'll be wrapped up well before midnight EST.)

    I still have a user game VS bucsfan047 to close out the season. Ive tried adding you to my friends list but yours is full. I can be on any time this afternoon. Or any time tomorrow. Just name a time and I'll get on. (I have already scheduled my USER game in my other Dynasty for 7 PM pacific tonight, could also play after that.

    Currently bucsfan047 is on AP, if we don't hear from him by tonight, go ahead and play the CPU tomorrow.

    I was speaking generally. With 12 guys you can almost never find a night everyone can attend. If a few guys can't make the selected offseason night we won't hold up the majority of the group. Just an FYI to everyone about how I run things.

    You can only live chat with 8 guys, which was why I brought up the skype possibility.

    I currently don't have Skype, although I could download it. However, my xbox is currently nowhere near my PC. I'll just play that part by ear. However, I'll be on, no matter which night we do the offseason.

    If any of you have smartphones there is an app for skype that is free, which is how I use it. Signing up and adding folks is pretty easy, it must be if I can pull it off.

    you call people on the internet, if your phone is a smart phone, you may be able to download the app. It costs like $3.00 per month

    To use skype, it is free. To get the app it is free, but not the service.
