NHL 10 PS3 Club READ
I already posted this in the other thread, but I'd rather everyone respond here, so everyone can see it and it doesn't get pushed back a few pages.
I want to say that to the couple of you asking me to make you a GM, I can't just do that. There are 3 other GM's on the team: Benkido, ambassadorofkwan, and dyvps. Personally, I don't care. But we got 3 other GM's and the final decision isn't up to me. You gotta ask each of us individually. We can't have everyone being a GM and adding random players. Don't forget that this is Team LGK, meaning members from this message board. We already have good chemistry for the most part and we know exactly how each other play, and I don't want extra people on here being puck hogs or not playing their position...etc. The only exception I have is finding a GOOD human goaltender. I think that would be awesome. The 6 on 6 game the other day was great until some of you guys disconnected.
Speaking of that, I can't believe we finally got the trophy! Not only that, but we won. Kwan really didn't have to move lol, it was a great team game by all of us, the other team didn't even get into double-digit shots.
Cardiac- Keep playing your game. The last week or so you have been really solid. Your play from 09 on up till now was so-so (not to sound like a complete dick,) but lately you have been damn good. Keep it up buddy. One knock on you though, please watch the offsides! :P
Sportstsar- You are great on RW, you win faceoffs, and when we are on the PK you play LD pretty damn good. Once you hit legend, you will make this team even better. Please don't get those after the whistle penalties anymore though. You can only hit a player ex amount of times after the whistle, and you can only slash someone twice. Also, don't poke at the opposing team's goalie after the whistle. Getting these penalties will not help your grades and will hurt the team possibly.
David- Your game hasn't improved at all. ...and you know why? Because you have been our best player since you joined the team. You hardly make any mistakes, you are there to help on D, you have that deke move which kills the goalie quite a bit. Without you on the team, we are much worse.
Kwan- By far our best defensive defenseman (whether you play as offensive D or not.) What I love about your recent game is that you are finally taking shots! You still don't score as much, but I swear...every time you score it's a win. EVERY TIME.
Ben- Ideal defensive partner when Kwan isn't on. We switch sides pretty well. You are similar to me joining in on the rush, but you stay back when we are losing and I go crazy acting as a forward trying to get us a goal.
Edit- You at center, well the last few times you have been great on faceoffs and you know where to be. I don't blame you for quitting games when we are down 4-1 or so against cheesers, because the same thought crosses my mind too lol. You are a great team player, and you score some goals I really didn't think had a chance.
Savnok- I like that you can play any forward position. I told Kwan (and I meant it) that you are the best tipper in the league that I've seen. I will shoot from the point and you always manage to be in the perfect spot, I just can't believe it. You never accidently block my shots, you just got the tip down better than anyone I've seen.
Mike- Glad to have you back. I prefer you to play LW if we have a full team, especially because you shoot right handed. Just like Jon though, watch the offsides please. And don't take those dumb penalties! :P You have great pressure sometimes, and can lay some sweet hits out when needed.
Not sure if I'm leaving anyone out, but here's my take on myself:
palffy- My defense is probably the best behind Kwan's. My slapshot is awesome. My poke check is effective. I don't wanna be concieded, but I think I am the best player on the team switching positions. I can play RD pretty damn good most of the time, and RW...my forecheck is great at times and I pass back and try to be a team player. My flaws: Missing hits, going all over the place at the end of the game, missing a poke check and allowing a 2 on 1 for the other team, shooting in lanes that are blocked and ****ing around with the puck too much in our own zone and turning it over.
Also, to the whole team, please dump the puck in more. I'm guilty of it too, but if you see a player coming to hit you, just dump the puck in. It's better to shoot the puck in further back rather than getting hit and turning the puck over, letting the other team get a quick break. AND PLEASE USE THE OVERHEAD VIEW! It took me a little while to get used to it, but when I play RW, I can see so much more of the ice and see more open lanes, including the defense and shooting lanes. It is the best view to use, and we will be a lot better if we all use it. I know most of you prefer the Be a Pro "High" camera, but it just isn't good for online play for ANY position. Please try it out...and not for just one game. You will get used to it and in return enjoy it more and it will improve not only your game, but the entire team's. Don't be selfish! :P
I know I have flaws that cost us the game. Compared to when NHL 10 first came out, I decided I want to pick apart my game and improve on every aspect I do wrong, which is why I am a better all-around player now. I am still going to imrpove and in turn try and help make this team better. I think everyone should do the same and not just sit here and read my negative comments and think I'm just trying to be an ass. I just want to help make the team better and not keep repeating the same mistakes every game. LGK IS ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE WHOLE EASHL and we deserve to be up in the top ranks.
We all need to improve and we will. Just take a look at your own game and realize what you are doing wrong, and what you are doing right. I really love playing with this team every night and even though it's just a game, I hate when we lose because once again, we are a GOOD team. I took of requests for a reason. Well...two reasons. One is because I was sick of all the ****ty players who joined when this thread started. Two is because everyone plays as much as possible and it actually feels like a team. We don't need some random players on our team, good or bad. Because we are TEAM LGK.
I know this sounds reallllllllllly corny and over-dramatic, but my point is, I like the team we have now and I want us to improve as a team. We've been together for almost a year now, (since NHL 09,) and this is the team I love to play with. Let's keep it this way and keep improving.
I know I sound like I'm taking the game too seriously, but we are on every night and I really enjoy playing with the team. I know we all get really frusterated with the game and we also are satisfied when we win...but I want to help this team get as good as it should be. I'm not the type of 19 year old kid who goes out and parties every night because I've been there and done that, so this is something I look forward to later on in the evening. I apologize if I sound like an ******* at any point in this post, but like I said, this team is good and should be better. That being said, you guys all kick ass and I'm glad we got the team we do.

I agree with everything you said 100%. My offsides bug the crap outta me and I have been better, my average went from 1.50 a game down to about .75 a game, but sometimes I get like 5 a game and it drives me nuts! I am trying to get used to passing back to d when in the offensive zone, I am honestly thinking about changing my view to Overhead when I play forward like you all have suggested, I already do it on d.

Over the last week, your play has been getting damn good though. Idk how it happened, but I can see a huge difference and I think you play more of a team game. You make smarter decisions. You cover my ass quite a bit on D. I love it haha.
Oh and I forgot to add (before making myself look like the whiny loser on the internet :P that you guys an criticize me too. I'm sure I didn't put everything I do wrong up there, but I covered all my ****ups I could think of.

As i've been filing your PS3 mail boxes with comments and suggestions--things must be said and understood. I'm sorry for the long rant, but I need to get this off my chest:
GM's must COMMUNTICATE and figure stuff out--that's your job right?
I asked to be GM again, after i left the team the first team, on a journey to get my game back (due to slow internet connection lag and small sd tv).
I came back and wanted what was already granted to me 2 months ago: GM status...but aparently that was a Huge request to want my standing back.
I've asked all the GMs for permission to re GM. All I hear all day is....um, ask other GM...blah...blah and blah. Ok, so i msg all those concerned and they say um, ask blah blah and blah...ANNOYING AND FRUSTRATING!!
So, now I as a member of the team back from 09, I wanted to add my FRIEND and NOW LGK member into the mix...I play OTP with him all the time and he's great!
What happens? Benkido outright says no, which is fine. But i don't like the arrogance and reasons he said. "I dont want any new members" and "I need my power kick". Joke or not, thats real d-bag move man-- and something a ducks fan would do.
So, I then turn to other GM's and no response or action is taken. Um ask blah, blah and blah the other GMs. Same static. So, this leads me to believe our little club isn't really that organized or interested at all.
I was showing iniative and ambition trying to add a friend and great player and I get IGNORED...or worse, have the BUCK passed to another GM? Not cool..and not respectful.
Is this how we treat fellow members? It might seem silly and all but I had MY FRIEND leave his team and sit out in the cold asking me "am i on yet" and I have to tell him no and pound sand.
If I was a GM of yours, i obviously gained some trust, but now that trust and respect seems misplaced.
In closing, GMs communicate and actually talk sometimes in the dressing room and address issues, strategies and CLUB ISSUES for God's sake! Otherwise dont be a GM, plain and simple.

here is what I know. If I get online and I get a bitch fest coming at me about how you don't get this or you don't get that, and how you don't get any respect. Let me make it clear, it has totally made me not want to do **** for you.
you left the team without saying a word, took people off your friends list, even challenged us to games, and you want to come right back and get GM status? seriously?

video game drama!!!!!
it's like GTA:V ice city up in hurr!!!

LOL! lucfan, that was funny.
Mike- If you are trying to compare this to being a real life GM, well how about this: You play under us, the GM's. Players don't get to make requests to get their friends on the team. I said I don't care, ask the other guys. If they say no, then stop bitching! They gave you an answer, so get over it. Don't ask a question and because you don't get the response you wanted, start attacking us. It's a video game.

the crazy part is that I had no knowledge of any of this, I just come on to blow off post work steam, play a game and I get this freaking incessant whining and bitching about not getting respect.
this is what I want to hear after working for 10 hours? hahaha.
