Global Hockey League
Middle of 2002
We are currently nearing the end of the 9th season (2011-2012)(as of
Commish: Steven Hicks
Jeff Emack (also a simmer)
Simming Speed, Length & Presentation:
Regular Season - 7 EHM days simmed 3 times weekly (Sun, Tues and Thurs)
with gameday results posted on the boards.
Playoffs - 2 EHM days per real day are simmed.
GMs, Nationalities and Language Nationality:
A wide mix of GM's, coming from Canada, USA, England, Italy, Australia
and several Brazilian GM's.
English is the language used on the boards, though some of us have been
learning a few Brazilean and Italian phrases.
We have 9 GM's who have been there from the 1st season, and many more
that have been there for 3 or more seasons. It is an excellent set of
GM's, the league's biggest strength.
The forums is where the majority of communication occurs. All things
GHL are discussed here, as well as a lot of non-GHL topics. MSN and
Yahoo messanger are also used, depending on the GM.

Trades and Consistency:
There is a trade committee in place to prevent any one sided deals.
Consistency is restored based on a formula (found in league rules) which
take into account the players age/experience. Lost points can be restored
based on players performance.
As we are one of the older leagues, the roster pack used was a (now
quite) old version of Smetena's.
None at the moment.
EHM Knowledge/GM Profile:
We accept GM's of all knowledge level. One thing we pride ourselves
on is teaching the how-to's and such of online EHM life. We have a significant
amount of GM's whose first league was GHL and we have a post on the
forums about all things a newer GM needs to know. We also have many
friendly and helpful GM's that are more then willing to answer any questions
and offer advice.
