I've heard him say it too. Have you ever played HUT?



Focus on winning too much

Ice tilt doesn't exist, nor has it ever existed. It's an imaginary theory that people default to when they feel they were wronged by a bounce. People have been trying to prove it exists to years, but to no avail, and even the producers have denied it's existence. Being that we were thrown a complete curve ball this year, something that doesn't exist is the last thing we need to worry about.

To get this back on topic:

Scott, we discussed all the different ways to go about this, including using existing clubs and decided against it. We understand that people may have social clubs that they have already built up, but we thought having the custom names would have made things confusing for most members since it could change even between seasons if there was an owner change, or etc The idea is that with these xbs specific teams we could handle any changes needed, and the plan is to keep them through all of NHL 17 (unless EA fixes this...not getting my hopes up).

Unfortunately in either case, there is a chance someone would lose a team they built up because they have to change teams for XBS. If anyone is insistent on keeping their clubs, I suggest having a second account take GM of the club so that you can always hold on to it for when you wish to play social games out side of XBS. That is how BTW, Huskies and I are handling it with our team we use in EASHL.

Ok, just wanted to throw the idea out there for discussion. Thanks for the prompt response and I understand.

I was actually texting my peeps today about this second account thing as a last resort. Now, would that just be another profile on my console, or do I have to create a new xbox live account and pay for it? I don't really want to pay $60 for xbox live just to sit and hold a spot on the club

I might be wrong, but I think that with XBL Gold you can create multiple gamertag on the same subscription

If that's the case, then my kids profile/GT should work. I'll test it out tonight when I get home.

We can also try drop in games. They have group lobbies. Captains could just synchronize the game search like you would do with friends in HUT or Draft Champions.
