Oh and I added everyone from LGK that was already on my friends list.
Weird, there's 6 different rooms for club play?

that way with more than 5 or 6 players on, you can split teams. great idea. why is this taking so long to load?

I already started it last night, the server ****ing sucks. I got booted from like 7 or 8 games and only played 1 full game. And it wasn't just me, 3 of us got booted last night at the same time and 2 were still playing. Don't message while in game either, it'll freeze the game. I sure hope they patch it soon cause it's not really worth playing EASHL right now.

my problems were on my side - Time Warner Cable started sucking ASS and lagged the **** out of me while they scored the second goal. I couldn't handle it anymore so I logged off...they must have dropped some ports but not others - skype was working, I could still connect to PS online and (barely) send a message to you and Fisch, but my phone was not, and then it crapped out to well past 2am.

I was wondering what happened...all of a sudden it was just me and CIkiri playing, lol.

I was out of position on a couple goals, you really gotta play defense in this one since goals are hard to come by. I don't like how slow the game is now, and not having my stats boosted sucks because I loved having a fast player with a huge slapshot in 09.

Ps3 team is pretty bad in this game, although we did ok tonight.
The one thing that pisses me off is that the forwards just forget about us defenders at the point...wide open pretty much every time. So us defenders move up to get in on some action...and we get caught out of position and get scored on. If this keeps happening then I'm done playing for LGK because it's not fun having to sit back the whole game.
On a better note, Mike kicks ass at this game!

this game typically rewards those who play hockey, for the most part, the way the positions are supposed to be played (with some loopholes here and there).

defensemen going too far out of the way to make a hit? leads to prime scoring chances by the other team.
and not playing with mics is an extreme disadvantage.
this team would do well to not play EASHL for a while and instead practice in the lobby.
We talked about last season how it was just the cheesers that would beat us, and I completely disagree. if you just watched the two top teams playing against each other, they didn't get there without some serious practice, and they had to deal with the cheesers the whole time, as well. We didn't win because we flat out didn't play as well as a team.
but on our team, personal "fun" outweighs team play, and that is the most annoying part.
