  1. This discussion is going better than I thought it would. I think Jer has some great points and Brutus pretty much nailed it. I don't play anymore but for a while I was slacker numero uno. I also agree with Labs. Mainly towards the end of my playing time.....just my opinion, but right around the doc and the tourney, it did seem like there was a push to "get those numbers up" so to speak. Which does make sense because it did increase interest for vets and newcomers, but damn, things were flying. You guys were going through GDL seasons like Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends. Then things just fell off......HARD. I usually still lurk on the site about 2-3 times a week. You can tell things are kind of stagnant right now when you check the site on a Monday and then check it again on Friday and maybe 3-4 threads have new content, that and aim seems pretty dead now.

    I can't speak for any new guys but I think some of the vets, at least the "B league lifers" just like me, for a while were pretty much all the same people. We kind of all built up a sense of camaraderie because the same guys played eachother all the time, so if it were me or buds like probob,witt,jaylighter,or eggink that slacked, we were all cool about it because we were cool with eachother and knew that we'd meet up eventually. Then new guys would eventually come in, and old habits die hard and some of the slack would continue, so I can see why that would be a problem.

    I'm not sure how much of a waiting list there is nowadays, but if it's slim than those "slack ass bums" (to quote Hokkee) are better than nobody.

    My last thought: Some guys here are video game guys first, Some guys are hockey guys first, maybe once the Sharks and Pens finals are over that things will pick up.

  2. Sometimes I use google to get to the site instead of just typing it in. On the side I saw an ad for repro carts on etsy.





    The 2nd says he doesn't know much about sports, hopefully he did it on his own and didn't jack someones hack from here. Wonder if they take requests. 2on2 carts would be cool.

  4. yee i'm gonna sit next season out. I think I joined about 3-4 years ago and maybe had like a 10 day stretch where I wasn't in a league, and my slacking is getting worse. It's nice to see the passion new guys have, so i'm not gonna hold up a spot. A new guy can have it and i'll be back eventually with that eager C league desire again. Time to get back to exis and 2on2.........and maybe some Haxball? ^_^

    See you thursday Brutus, gonna be a real slobberknocker.

  5. How do you guys handle losing


    I think jer is on to something about the conncetion(or at least something on that side of things) Probob and I both have windows 8 and it's not a super drastic change, but we both noticed things feel "different" now. Maybe it's too many programs running in the backround causing a slight delay.

    you still using the analog controller? You were silky smooth with that. if your old one broke check ebay and buy like 10 of em.

    That's about all I can think of for now. good thread though, the site needs it. It sucks to lose and feel stuck. Best thing to do is blame it on your gear (my go to) and hopefully it gets figured out soon.
