Before anyone bites my head off, I am not naming names nor a particular game -- just wanted to tell the members of the site about an alarming trend, and how two incidents have been handled in divergent ways.
Which one deserves to get the second spot in the nat'l championship? Both are 1-1, oklahoma state has a conference title and more wins against ranked opponents, but alabama plays in a tougher division and had only lost to the no. 1 team, LSU. What do you guys think?
A gunboat variant where you could see who had joined but did not know who played each country. That would allow you to screen who you played with and could avoid obvious cheating red flags. Just a thought.
I thought of a good idea, arrange a face to face game via Skype or gmail chat. It would be fun and ann another dimension to the game and make it close to a real face to face except yo arn't next to one another. Post about ideas thoughts or interest.
I'm playing in a few anon games (well, more than a few), and I've noticed that the game has changed over the years. It got better for a long time, then towards the end if this year, something has happened that has taken some fun away.
Anyone still interested in having their signature added to the CREATOR OF DIPLOMACY's birthday card needs to send me a message ASAP. Even if you can't get me something handwritten, send me an email with your location.
Personally, I like the change. Divisions are meaningless right now. This should make some serious rivalries. I'm just worried that they're not going to go far enough. I'd like the schedule to be heavily weighted to playing inter-division games.
Here is a better pic of what will likely happen. http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/813707/NHL-realignment-map_2011-12-03.png Personally, I say you switch the Pens and Flyers with the Florida teams but you don't want to break up the Pens/Caps rivalry. Also, the Florida/NE conference can be called the snowbird division which is pretty funny.
I think the idea is to have 4 teams from each conference make the playoffs. There may be some debate over it because it gives the 7 team conference a leg up.
1 solution would be to expand to Markham and Quebec...
I agree about naming the Conferences after people. I miss the Campbell Conf. and the Smythe division. Keeping the 2 Florida teams together in the same division would build rivalry, but matching them with the north??????? Atlanta and Dallas seem a better match.
Canadian retirees need something to do in Florida. I was in Florida a couple of years ago and went to a Panthers/Habs game. It was essentially a home game for the Habs. You could actually hear the anthem being sung in French.
The issue is that there aren't two team to take out of the other conference. You need the NY and PA teams together and you don't want to break up Pens/Caps.
QC can just join Toronto's conference when Phoenix moves there. It just switches the 7/8 team conferences.
This will also make the playoffs awesome. The first two rounds will be inter-division before the teams are reseeded based on regular season standings. Fantastic rivalries will be made.
I like the idea of a east/west conference and two divisions within the conference. I know the NHL wants 4 divisions, but I miss the way it was when I was younger. The east/west would be named after people who weren't players and the divisions could be named after players. The fans would get to choose the players names that would represent the divisions, kind of like the all-star voting system for baseball, and the owners would get to vote on the conference names.
