Random doesn't always mean more fair


The web site says random roster does create the teams more even.

I like that idea, so its a crap shoot who gets Sid or Geno or other players in high demand. ANd it up to you to build your team not just be given a starting roster of Vancouver or the Pens, to the 15 year old kid who knows the game inside out and can score with his eyes closed. Its up the the Gm to build the team and play the games to their ability with a roster concisting of good players and ones you are unfamialar with that you have to learn their ability.

I wonder if the Commisioner has the ability to change the sliders int he game to make it more realistic. I hate seasons with players scoring 200 points or getting 100 goals.

a random draft makes everyone relatively balanced and would promote the most amount interaction between everybody in the group, in my opinion.

One on condition. You have to upload a custom soundtrack so the game plays nothing but It's so cold in the D.

I definitely like the randomized rosters idea. I thank "believe" for his post. I was misinformed as to exactly how that worked but now it appears that NHL 13 simply equally distributes rosters on a "relatively even" playing field. That surely sounds fair to me. Let's do that.

Basically the commish decides how much of the NHL season at a time you play in real days. For example the commish can say we have 5 REAL days to play 2 weeks of the NHL schedule. You play your games vs whatever teams you are scheduled to play in any order. Whichever games don't get played get simmed.

I think if we only have say 20 user controlled teams and they are going to be random rosters anyway, we should try and have people pick teams that condense them into divisions as best as possible to limit the amount of games everyone plays vs CPU.

So what you're saying is (if we do use both conferences (which we should, there's 22 if you count the latest poster)), people should try to stay within divisions?

22/30 is pretty big, I don't think there would be that much of a problem.

Are you guys doing a fantasy draft? If you are.. I would check and make sure it's actually in the game, as fantasy draft is not in Madden 13.

"NHL 13 will have a randomize team rosters option. This will randomize the team rosters so that teams will start out relatively even. That way you can avoid arguments over who gets what team, and nobody has an automatic advantage because of the strength of the team they pick."

Yeah I didn't realize we were that big already. We should still make sure that the divisions are as balanced as possible.
EDIT: like I just looked at the op and nobody is the rangers, islanders or flyers. That would leave 2 people playing the CPU more than others. That is what I want to avoid.

Are we allowed to invite our own friends onto our GM controlled team? Or are we just staying with 1 person playing per team?
