    As many of you know by now, Vegas is going invade LG starting next season. There has been many debates in the forums about "How will we function with an odd number of teams?". After much debate, and several months of review and preparation, @Safety Sieve is the wizard himself whom has constructed our master piece of a schedule!

    For this schedule to work, we were required to add a 10th game time slot. Due to how popular the condensed week has been for our PSN League, we opted to go with a condense week, and an additional game for the Xbox Side. What I mean by condensed week is that rather than having games Sunday through to Thursday, we would have games Sunday through to Wednesday instead. This will allow for less weekly commitment getting players on and into, more free time between weeks for other LG events, more time for trading, and more time for staff to address league complaints and such.

    As an example, the new NHL game times would look like this;

    Sunday 9/10
    Monday 9/10/11
    Tuesday 9/10/11
    Wednesday 10/11

    Out of those ten official game times, team will ONLY play nine times! Meaning each week there will be one of those time slots where you will not play.

    To ensure each team plays a complete 82 game schedule as well, one week in the season will also be ten games. The only difference is that the 10 game week may not be the final week of the season which is something we are used to now.

    Here are a few examples of what the complete season looks like for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Pittsburgh Penguins:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~​

    In those two examples you can see a few differences, and see how the new schedule looks. As an example, for the first three week the Leafs play two games Sunday, three games Monday, three games Tuesday, and one game Wednesday. Where PIT has Tuesday at 9 off week one, Wednesday at 11 off week two, and Wednesday at 11 of week three. That is where the variation in the schedule comes into play.

    I know the majority of people hate change me included. But based off the success the PSN League is having with a condensed week as well as our desire to simulate real life and the real NHL, Vegas is a must for us here on LG.

    All I ask for is to come into this with an open mind and believe that this is going to be better for us all!

    If you have questions or comments by all means post below and tag @Tris10 and I so we can address you ASAP!

    Happy 4th of July from us all here on LG

    It adds a team without making the schedule complex. It eliminates the horrible Thursday game. Both are winners.

    Better idea just add a 2nd team to las vegas
    Seattle is going to get the next team and it would
    Allow us to keep the current scheduling

    I would just like to say that it will severely limit the overall availability of majority of teams. 3 games a night each week on MondayTuesday only makes me feel for the guys who can't play those days and their managers. That's why I liked the rotating schedule. Even if it's making it like this.
    Week 1:

    Sunday 9-10-11
    Monday 9-10-11
    Tuesday 10-11
    Wednesday 10-11.

    Week 2:

    Sunday 9-10
    Monday 9-10-11
    Tuesday 9-10-11
    Wednesday 10-11


    And continue that pattern throughout the season. That still makes you able to remove one third game each week for vegas and allows guys who can't make Monday/Tuesday's not completely screwed.



    This isn't a wreck on the scheduling and I see why it is how it is. I just personally don't think having 2specific days always having 3 games is fair to players whom can't playthat day. It'll automatically make them 4/9 each week for the mostpart.




    Since it's

    Sunday 9-10
    Monday 9-10-11
    Tuesday 9-10-11
    Wednesday 9-10

    With one missing game, I would expect availability and schedulingissues to arise at a higher rate.




    Those are my thoughts.

    If you are basing your team around being available for 1 game on Thursday that's not good... PSN has went without Thursday this season and hasn't been an issue from what I've been told.

    No need to add a 32nd team to keep the schedule running similarly to the way it is now. Adding the 10th time slot at 10:00 Thursday makes far more sense over this new schedule we're trying to do here. This new schedule fixes nothing and makes everything far more choatic. My team for example will have only one game on Wednesday's for 7/9 weeks on the season and 3 games both Monday and Tuesday (guess which day will suddenly have Aids availability next season?)

    And I have horrible Thursday avail. The point is that the majority will have better avail from this change.

    I've never been apart of a team with bad Thursday availability... Just because it works for yourself, that doesn't automatically make things better. Thursday gets a bad rep due to the increase in the amount of ff's from shitty teams who don't feel like putting a lineup together for one game at the end of the week.

    The point of me saying I have poor Thursday avail is to make a point about using your avail as an argument. Sorry you didn't pick that up.

    PSN has worked fine with Thursdays off. It gives managers an extra day off and may entice more managers that have less time to commit than what is currently required.

    Well here is the thing. When people actually sign up for a season they should actually put their real availability instead of some BS. If you can't play at least 6 of the 9 games availability wise then personally I don't think you belong in the league. You just become a cancer to the management and the league trying to juggle lineups or trading dead weight to another team saying they got availability but then turns out it's trash because they simply don't want to be there.

    @LG McDonald Hopefully this upcoming season we can see some improved bans for repeat quitters?

    It was a hypothetical example... People complain about having to get on for a single game on Thursday... This new schedule doesn't fix that given the amount of days next season that will still only have one game.

    Sure you get an extra day off, but now you have two nights where you have to get your team together for 3 games now.

    Sorry you didn't pick that up.

    Many would take having all their games done on one day. The main complaints I hear about the lone Thursday game is it sometimes leads to players having to play 3 nights a week. The likelihood of this happening with the new schedule is almost zero.

    Most manager groups have someone that is on from the 9-11 time range Sun-Wed. It isn't hard to get lines together and grab ECUs even when not online. This does give all mamagers and players a day where they don't have to be on for one game. Adding to Thursday would increase the likelihood of the "3 games in 3 days" scenario which sucks for players.

    Schedule makes sense could make avail tricky for some however improve it for others, this is the best option I've seen. Bravo to nerds who figured it out ;)
