I have had no responses from Edmonton or Detroit. I have messaged them both on Xbox live and also posted in the forum. Detroit has been on at the same time as I have also. I think they need a warning a boot.

Yea.. I lost all my simmed games too... you can't actually play a person as a computer opponent unless they set their team that way....

be a Gm is a very difficult, highly ambitious mode by EA, everyone just has to realize that a lot of your games may need to be simmed in the first season or 2... Just try looking forward to your prospects improving and your team being good enough to win the sims while we fill the league up.

I lost 3 D in 2 simmed games last week. Had a forward default as a D all last week.

Uggh hopefully be on soon, bought a new xbox and I am having a hell of a time trying to get the port forwarding working (wtf seriously, the old xbox wasn't half this hard).

With such a big group of people it's kinda hard to do it will cause a bunch of simmed games which people already don't like but it's up to everyone. If people are wondering we have a few openings.

I second advancing at least twice per week. I am very active and last night was the first time I have gotten a game invite from someone not named commissioner. It really is frustrating but at least if its simmed sooner the truly active players get to at least play games rather then stare at the load screen hoping someone joins the invite they sent.

I agree. I play most of the games after an advance within 1 or 2days. I have been waiting to play my 2 remaining games for over a week but they dont come on and don't even at least reply back to let me know. Can't we play the computer if the players don't come on instead of us just leaving it to sim?

Some people including myself just don't have time for it so someone else might have to take over.

Edit: We also might lose majority of our players with such a change SPAM invite its annoying but effective.

We don't need to have advances at least twice per week, as Shniper is right there are people who are busy and having so many advances in a short amount of time may result in fewer games played for them and everyone else who they're scheduled to play against.

What I'm proposing is that we keep the 5 or 7 day advance time but instead of having that be worth 2 weeks of the schedule we make it worth 1 month. That way there are twice as more games for us quicker people to play and it still gives the slower people some time to play theirs. Moreover, the season becomes a little bit quicker so we could possibly get 4 or 5 seasons done by NHL 14 (so draft picks and prospects will matter). Granted, not all of us will be able to play our games so we will all have to suffer from some simulated ones but that's what we were doing anyways so that's not much of a change.

Just an idea.

Also, I agree with CM Punk in that we should be able to play the computer if the players don't come on. BUT, we should only be able to do that IF AND ONLY IF the other player hasn't responded back to any messages and we only play the CPU the last day before the advance (i.e. a last resort sort of thing).

I was under the impression you could not set up for 1 month of the schedule at a time but if thats the case that would work. With playing the computer the team has to actually set up there AI to enable play. I dont see teams doing this as they would have a better chance for a win if the game is simmed. I was in another league on PS3 before switching to X box and if your team wasnt set up before the last day of the sim you got a warning and second time got the boot. I dont know if you want to try something like that?

If we would lose players I would rather just leave it the way it is. For what it is its not bad. Advancing every 5 days seems good.

Oh I didn't know the amount of games per session had a limit. And yes, if we were to lose players we might as well just keep it as is.

While I'm at it, the Nashville Predators are looking for a 1st line forward -- preferably a centre. Will trade a Colin Wilson (young, 4 gold star power forward signed at $2M/yr for the next 3 years) package for one.
