Snoopdog RL: May 29th San Francisco - The Vortex has come under some scrutiny recently regarding their choice to not go after a high ranked goalie but instead to keep what they have, the GM of the team released a statement moments ago "while we do wish to ice the best team possible, and we realize a elite goalie will be necessary to win the cup, our focus is to develop our prospect..." Whether this decision was based off their lack of funds or desire to ice a "Home Grown Team", the message is clear.

METROHO is a browser-based multiplayer hockey game that combines an interactive hockey simulator with an engaging web community. In METROHO, you own, manage, and coach your own team. The advantage METROHO offers is enough statistics and features to make the game all that it should be, without any overwhelming complications. [Screenshots]
Key Features Include:
Ability to play games manually.
You start off by creating your own team which will consist of 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goalies, each with their own age and skill level. Next, you sign these players and other free agents to your team while staying under the $65 Million salary cap. Once you're ready, join a league.
Public Leagues consist of 10 teams in a season that lasts 20 days. Your team will play each of the league's other teams 8 times for a season total of 72 games. Half the games will be played at home, while the rest will be played on the road. The advantage of home games is that you can manually start the game any time during its scheduled day. This is a key feature of METROHO, as during a home game simulation, you can select the lines you want for each round.
If you can't find a league you like, you can create your own league of 10 or 15 teams. Leagues can even be made private so that only your friends can join!
The top 8 teams in a league's standings, after the season is over, advance to the playoffs, following a one day hiatus. Playoffs involve three series with each series being a best of 3, 5, or 7 (depending on your league's settings) to determine the league's champion. Playoffs last nine days. This means that once your team joins a league, the league's season and playoffs will last a grand total of 30 days.
Competition is fierce as there are both team and player awards to be won, not to mention the bragging rights that go with a large fan base. All teams start off in Level One and strive for promotion into higher level leagues which feature progressively bigger trophies.
