Default Official XBS GMC NHL13 League - [ 1 vs. 1 ]




We are proud to announce the first ever GM Connected League has arrived here at XBox-Sports. Although this will not be the sites first 1 vs 1 hockey league, it will be the most diverse and in-depth one we have ever had thanks to the new GMC mode in NHL13.



Commissioners
One of the most important parts of any league are the commissioners.

We have selected two of the finest examples that this site has to offer in BTW8892 (Bryan) and Tony Amonte (Rob).

Both are new to the Commissioner role but are no stranger to leadership positions. Bryan has been a member for several years who has earned the respect of teammates and opponents alike and has helped the site out in the past. Rob has been an owner in the XBSHL several seasons and has gone out of his way countless times in welcoming new members and making sure to lend a hand whenever possible.

We couldn't be any happier having these two join the Commissioners of XBS and are excited to see the league they will/are creating.



Details
The purpose of this thread is to inform you on the details of this league, and get interested players signed up.

All 30 NHL teams will be in play for the GM connected dynasty. As a team GM, you will be managing your team all throughout the regular season. Tasks such as player trades, call ups and demotions, setting lines, strategies, drafting players, and icing a team that if you do your job correctly, will make the playoffs and play for the Stanley Cup. Each season will be a full 82 game season. But not to worry, your job as a GM is to MANAGE your team to April...not play them

Your team, should you be selected, will be one that is randomized prior to the start of the first season. This is to level the playing field as well as remove any territorial problems with one team being more popular then another.



Rosters and Teams
The league will randomize rosters prior to the start of the first season.


Since the team rosters will be randomized, team selection is really not that important other than having a logo/uniform you like. We will be also randomizing the team selection process so everyone that signs up will be randomly matched up with their team. You will have the option of trading your team after the random selection process, details regarding this and the selection process will be posted at a later time.



Season
The regular seasons (up until the last week of each year) will be simmed.

Throughout the season is when you must push the right buttons to get your team competitive. The teams will be randomly assigned. This is basically for Logo purposes only, as we will be running a draft style dynasty. The draft will also be simmed. This way ALL 30 teams will be relatively equal in talent. From there is when you will start assessing your roster, contacting other GM's about trades, and prepping for the playoffs!



Playoff Push
The final week of the regular season is when you will start to get your hands dirty.

You will take over your team and play out the final week against one another while you jockey for position. The playoffs will be played in their entirety by the GM's as well until we crown a winner.



Long-Term

We expect to be able to run quite a few seasons of this for the NHL 13 title.

We are hopeful to have anywhere from 12-20 seasons done by the time the title is over with. This way you will get a chance to see your veteran stars retire, and the young guys develop into superstars.



Restrictions
This is an officially XBS sanctioned league.

This means your conduct and activity can directly effect the way you are chosen to play in other leagues here. We ask that if you sign up, you do everything in your power to honor your commitment to this league. We will have hard deadlines when it comes time to play the last week of the season, and playoffs.

We are very excited about the league, and hope to see a great group of 30 out there fighting for the cup for seasons to come! Please sign this thread if you would like to take part of the NHL GMC Dynasty here at XBS.



Sign-Up
Please make sure to read ALL the information above before signing up.

This is a big commitment so please make sure you understand what style this league is and that you are up to participating. We will likely also have a lot of committed guys wanting to join so there may be limited spots. Your status within the site, both on and off the ice, will likely determine whether or not you are selected.

So without further-ado, if you are still interested in joining please do so by signing up in this thread:

Congrats btw and TA! Solid choices!



So we just manage our teams during the regular season? We don't have to play all 82 games just the playoffs ? Is this correct?

Almost Mark. You manage all facets of your team just like a GM. The regular season is simmed with short breaks for moves/line changes/call ups etc....then yes, the final week of the regular season will be played to get you ready for the playoffs which are played in full.
