Are you in the elite division? Do you wish you were? Post here!

Kinda hard to regain your composure if you lost 7 in one game though. I hope most of them were scrubs. If not, yeah, you are in for a long season!

Half and half, really. C1, C2 and W3, plus 4 scrubs.

A couple more details:

I currently have 12 dead orcs and a one-orc bench, but tomorrow, that will change to 8 dead and a five-orc bench as I get back those who were killed when I played Gunner. Tolerances have been adjusted. :)

I also just picked up a couple new goalies, one that went to G1 and the other to G2, demoting one of my current G1's to G3 and selling my former G3. I'm hoping that helps. The goalies I picked up are both Goalie-3, Slam-9, Floyid (Slam) clan. They don't have any play time yet, though, so it could be that this is a build-up year for the BBs. On the other hand, the goalies I had were at 65%, 60%, 57%, 50% and 29% (one of my Defensemen thought he'd give it a try) on saves, so I guess this goalie shuffle couldn't hurt.

I'm really hoping that what Tune says is true, that I have the easy part of the schedule ahead of me now, but in this division, it's hard to believe there is an "easy" part!

I'm basing that on how I fared against the other 3 teams. I've outscored my three opponents 129-19 in those 3 games, and although I do have a good team, they aren't THAT good. Paul's Losers game me the closest games, which I won 34-5, and that is your next opponent. If you can beat him by 10 or more, I don't think you'll have any trouble until you face me. And you'll know more of what to expect against me after my game on Friday night with the Spikedrivers. This game will be a true test of how good my team is. And actually ICE, you gave him his best game, losing 45-15.

I'm thinking if I can keep within 20 and not have more than 5 deaths, I might not feel so bad. I'm just not sure what to expect in this game. Do you think I even have a chance, or are the Spikedrivers on their way to another perfect season?

Guess we'll find out tomorrow.

My best center, Horsfokweb (dead) won 1 faceoff of 6, and that was my only faceoff win of the game. If it helps any, he's a Center 4 Get 5.

In 23 shots and 16 saves, I didn't get through his first-line goalies.

He only blocked 3 of my shots. I was able to block 8. I'm not sure how this is significant. Gunner was able to block 4 shots. Daemian blocked 7 shots. It could be a weakness? I'm not sure. It suggests his shooters are letting the opposing defense get in the way.

Best of luck to you!

Well, the Spikedrivers win the battle of unbeatens, with a 32-22 victory. There were no deaths in the game.

I feel pretty good after the game, even with a loss and a 4K heal bill.

Now to see how I fare against the remainder of the teams.

What happened to the Mudboggers?

I was expecting a decent battle going into tonight, but it seems that the Mudboggers were just too tired to play.

Shooting at uncontested goals most of the game, the Enforce-orcs won the game 130-3

ICE..... you're next.

I hope you're tired from all that scoring!

I don't know what happened to Gunner. Every once in a while, he falls off the face of the earth.

That's why we play the game!!

I also started both of my veteran goalies against the Spikedrivers, but have played my young goalie against everyone else, while keeping one of the vets in. The youngster will be getting the start against you tonight, ICE. If I can get him enough game time throughout the season, he may be able to gain close to 2 levels by the time the playoffs are here

I would say I have a definate edge, but I would not rule out the possibility of an upset.

Nicely done ICE.

My young goalie got schooled giving up 9 3 point goals. Other two goalies weren't touched.

May have to reconsider who I start the next time we play, but I'm still quite pleased with where my team is and the experience I've gotten my younger orcs. And I even beat your team down pretty well... but not quite enough.

We play again after 2 more games...... we'll see if I can block that 3 point goal better!!

I thought it kindof humorous that your other two goalies faced a combined 13 shots, while your new guy faced 17. Apparently my team likes picking on fresh meat! My team got 30 shots on goal in the game while yours got 42. I was pretty lucky all in all.

The new guy I hired to take faceoffs won only 1 out of the 8 he took. I'm hoping it's just first-game jitters or something. The two new goalies I picked up were not bad - 8/11 (73%) and 9/10 (90%). My "veteran" stopped 17/21 (81%) as he works towards season 5. In this league, I'm pretty far behind the pack on goalies:

Paul has G-7, G-6, G-5
Tuneloon has G-7, G-6, G-3 (407)
Michael has G-7, G-5, G-3 (429)
id has G-7, G-4
Gunner has G-6, G-6, G-5, G-4
Daemian has G-6, G-4
Andrew has G-4

I have G-4, G-4 but one of them is not good at all, so I've been relying on my two new G-3's. In time, these two will be superstars.

I hope you enjoyed your revenge.

Tune won our second meeting by a score of 29 to 23 in what in this league might not even be considered a goal-fest. But even though it doesn't compare to Tune's 130-3 victory over Gunner, it's still a strong win.

Game three happens on Friday, after which I play fellow 4th-place Daemian's Assassins and Tune plays last-place 1-9-0 id's idiots. I am not consoled by the fact that the Assassins will be coming off a pair of games against id's idiots.
