Re: How's Your GM Mode Going?

Sitting at 3-1-0 right now with LA with St. Louis coming into town.

Gaborik is my leading scorer with 4 goals (all in 1 game vs the Jets).

Doughty leads in assists with 4.

I keep rotating my 3rd line D pairing between Greene, Regehr and McNabb.

Going with lines of:

Williams-Kopitar-Gaborik
King-Richards-Brown
Pearson-Carter-Toffoli
Clifford-Stoll-Lewis

Scratched forwards are Cracknell and Nolan

Defensive pairings of:

Doughty-Muzzin
Voynov-Martinez
Greene-Regehr-McNabb

Trying to find a good balance in my GM mode at the moment, so it's a little screwed up. My one issue with the game play so far is that it feels like my goalie lets in a lot of easy stuff. Regardless of 4-0 with Vancouver atm.

Totally agree!
Also, is there any way to save my strategies in BeAGM? I have to re-adjust them at the beginning of each game ...

I found that last year as well. Can it be adjusted with sliders in GM mode. Just to make sure: GM mode is basically the offline season mode, correct?

Re: How's Your GM Mode Going?

In GM mode (with sliders) I'm experiencing quite different gameplay compared to regular exhibition games, even though the sliders are pretty much the same.

In GM mode, the CPU rarely gets a shot on goal (much like older NHL games) but are incredibly effective (much like older NHL games). In exhibition, the shot totals are usually quite balanced and it seems strange to me.

The ridiculousness really kicks in when you check the hitting stats, postgame. In exhibition matches, I'm still ahead in hits, maybe by 5-10 (so if I get 15 hits total, the CPU gets around 8 or 10). In GM mode, the CPU usually doesn't land a single hit until the third period! This seems even more strange to me since it's such a huge difference.

Anyone else noticing the same things? Mainly the hitting, since I've jacked up aggression and everything and the CPU still refuse to play rough.
