Haha yeah, I do that stuff too. But it definitely takes the immersive feeling away when things like that keep occurring. A few people have stated that in simming GM games that EA was starting the backups around 50-75% of the time. Definitely needs to be addressed by EA.

Hockey is not like other sports. Coaches ride their goalies for the important match-ups. If anything you see back-ups play on the second day of a back-to-back situation, against a former team, because of injury or poor performance of the starter, or just great career numbers versus a certain team during the middle of the season. This game doesn't have any logic to really implement those instances. Though a few of them should be implemented by now with the advanced systems and stat tracking etc.

I agree with you.. I'm only a couple of games into my BeaGM season and Hiller had started all 3 games for Calgary so far. I start my backup on back to back games for the most part unless it's something like Chicago and LA back to back or I'll start him if my starter had a horrible game. It would be neat if they implemented stiff like, "Elliott isn't feeling well and should sit out the next game".

AS, 10 mins, default hardcore with penalties all the way up and a few things tweaked down a notch like pass interceptions, etc.. not much from default hardcore.

Re: How's Your GM Mode Going?

Game 3 vs the Kings.. lost 4-1 just can't put the puck in the net early on.

Made some line changes for the next game against the Coyotes.

LA did start their backup goalie who has played 1 more game than Quick.. so like some have said, I hope EA is looking into it.

Maybe Quick had an injury ? I only say so because everyone seems about where they should be on mine.

Goalies do not get injured in EA's game.

Episode 11 is now live !!

I suggest if you must watch in at least 720p then to leave it a few minutes, it is however up and running and looking great in 480p right now.

As always guys, feedback and help with my new channel in the form of likes, comments and subs and even feedback in this thread would be a great help.

Thanks as always for your time
