#2540597 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 14 October 2014 - 03:19 AM

All in all, considering how few complain about the moderation on this site in comparison to how many lacked the need to even open this thread, I think it's safe to say that things are run pretty fair. It's impossible to please every member of every community on the internet. There are rules, and rules are left to interpretation. People like myself and the other moderation staff here are constantly faced with decisions to determine whether or not something is out of line or not, in violation of the site rules, and feel the need to edit or censor some of the posts here. Even beyond that, predicting when a comment or a thread is headed in a vicious direction before it even reaches that point in efforts to prevent an awful scenario. No site in the history of the existence of the internet has a community 100% in agreement that things are run entirely in perfection, there will always be conflicts, disagreements, and arguments about how forums are run, moderated, and censored. There will always be members that attempt to push the limits and aggressively debate the result when they are told they have gone too far.


We are one community of many, are in consistent communication with each other to improve, fine tune, and moderate ourselves on the job we are doing on maintaining a successful discussion forum that appeals to the masses and remains friendly and accessible to hockey fans of all ages. This is one of the best online sports fan sites online for a reason, and there are other options out there if you are displeased with how it is run so badly that it's reached a level of intolerance with you.


I trust in Matt, and the rest of the moderation team here to fully enforce the site rules and maintain a great community. 

#2538456 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 October 2014 - 02:19 PM

I am unsure if I should buy Destiny or not, I've heard some mix reviews on it.

This is my take on it. If you are going into it expecting it to be a true console MMO like World of Warcraft, you will likely be disappointed because the content just isn't there.


If you approach it like a shooter with RPG elements that has co-op play and competitive multiplayer, I feel like it shines in both areas of the game. to get certain gear and equipment, you must participate in online modes like Strike and Cruicible, which is like mini-raids and online deathmatch/objective based gameplay. Each mode gives you unique rewards and access to things that only those modes offer. 


There is a lot to do, a long way to progress up to level 30 if you want to dedicate the time, and it really shines cooperatively. I wouldn't be enjoying it if I was attempting to go at it alone, I don't think Strikes or Raids are really possible to finish single player as they are extremely difficult as it is doing them cooperatively, but you at least have the team mates to revive you and continue the battle. 


I would say go for it, because I like it a lot personally, and I think a lot of the negative reviews from people come from those who thought it was going to be a lot more and larger than what it turned out to be. 

#2536041 NHL 15

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 September 2014 - 08:24 AM

The annual glitches started coming out  for me today. Some guy kept firing clappers from the corner and they went in about 25% of the time. Give it enough time and everyone will be doing them once they  catch on. 

This was an issue in NHL 14 also, if you skate up the ice and through the circles going at a wide and bad angle, and release a slapshot between the bottom of the circle and the goalie line aiming high short side it will go in 90% of the time if executed properly. My friend has shown me a video of a guy he played against in HUT that went 5 for 6 attempting this shot from the same spot in the same game. 


It is also insanely easy to score on the one timer if you aim your shot at the direction the pass came from, the goalie always over-commits.

#2535900 Jonas Gustavsson - Monsters Hall of Fame new mask

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 September 2014 - 09:13 PM

I love it, the cryptids on there like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster are a nice touch. I think it's cool how the white areas look like a pencil sketch, along with his number on the front part of it. 


All it's missing is a big almond-eyed alien and a UFO or two. I know they aren't technically "monsters" but a weirdo can dream.  :alien1:

#2535480 Howie's ready to go

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 September 2014 - 06:43 PM

Hoping for a great year out of Jimmy this season, new year, fresh opportunity to play some confident hockey and maintain the standard that we know Howard is capable of. 


Glad to hear he feels like he is in top shape going into the season. That can only do positive things for his attitude and confidence levels.

#2535268 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 31 August 2014 - 03:34 PM

You left out the part where you went running after him, pen and paper in hand, screaming "Danny, Danny!" trying to get an autograph.


We know how much you love your Danny Cleary.

#2535218 potential team names for las vegas!

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 August 2014 - 03:27 AM

Las Vegas Show Girls Crosby will be the C of that team. He will demand a trade immediately.

Sounds like a solid FlashyG photoshop opportunity.

#2534989 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 August 2014 - 10:48 PM

Yeah, I mean Phoenix is doing so well, let's toss another team right next to them. 


So what fun and exciting name are they going to slap on this one?


If any of those cities was going to be the first "lock" to get an NHL expansion team, Vegas is the last one on the list I thought would be receiving one. Seattle or QC makes the most sense.

#2534802 NHL 15

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 22 August 2014 - 04:10 PM

Oh but of course their cash cow HUT will still be there, so they can have their $20 player card pack deals and bank on those every week. 


EA has proven time and time again that money is top priority. 


I've been playing versus since Sega Genesis hockey games. For me it's run it's course, that's why I loved EASHL so much because it was an entirely different way to play the game. With full human control, there is no "glitching" or exploiting the AI goaltender all game with short side high corner goals that go in 100% of the time if you shoot from the right area of the ice. With the human element there, 6 human players versus 6 human players, it's true competition and team work to succeed and win games. 


NHL 13 and 14 combined, I had about 2,700 EASHL games played, got my Legend 3 card within the first 6 weeks of the games release and played it around 5 times a week. Now I gotta find something new to binge out on when i'm bored at night and looking to game.

#2534741 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 August 2014 - 10:19 PM

I'll be the minority here and say Datsyuk. I won't deny that Feds was super skilled, but he also had a pretty tremendous team around him. Datsyuk would have better numbers if he was playing with the team that Fedorov was playing for back then. Again, no discredit to skill level, sometimes the quality of players around you make you play better.


Fedorov, there is no reason why he shouldn't make the HOF.


Datsyuk, I feel like he absolutely should, I feel pretty confident that he will, but I understand if he doesn't.

#2531747 Hidden Logos

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 July 2014 - 03:38 AM

Surprised there was no inclusion of the Minnesota Wild logo, it's both a nature scene with trees and a river, and the head of a bear.


Cool share, I haven't seen/noticed a few of these.

#2531405 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 July 2014 - 10:06 PM

Yeah I just added 8 games this week due to the "Ultimate Summer Sale", including Forza Horizon, Payday 2, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, Halo: Spartan Assault, and a few others. The backlog seems to grow more than it shrinks.

#2530277 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 July 2014 - 04:35 PM

Any HFBoards users out there, please support Flashy here and get your vote in. He puts in countless hours into GDTs not only there, but here on LGW also. This is an opportunity for us to give back to someone who dedicates a lot of time and effort for free just for our entertainment.


Let's bring him to the final and get him the recognition he deserves.

#2530109 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 July 2014 - 01:07 PM

Last season, Buff scored 56 points in 78 games, 256 shots, 213 hits and 80 blocked shots. For someone that plays that physical, still managed under 100 PIM. 


Just saying, heavy point shot PP guy that rips it on net a LOT, will take the body and put up points like a top 6 forward, i'll take him in a second. Sounds like he has a lot of attributes we were severely lacking last season, especially in playoffs.

#2529241 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 July 2014 - 11:07 PM

A fan perspective and a player perspective are two entirely different things. Who knows what the feeling is in the locker room, how Pav and Zett feel about the current condition and standing of the team. 


We are on the outside watching, they are the ones playing the game. Considering the respect levels, the commitment by both players, no. I don't see a thing coming from either player as an effort of protest because the first day of free agent signing didn't go our way. The offers were put in place, some guys took less to play elsewhere. I'm not sure what good it would do to have our most valued players start turning against the organization instead of trying to make the best of a bad situation and win games as they are paid to do.
