  1. Shortly after I wrote the initial post I did some research between teams who had Heroic WI and teams that had bad or just OK WI.... and.... I couldn't find anything that would solve the mystery. Over the last week I acquired 3 players. There was nothing special trait-wise about these players, but it has increased my WI to Heroic and subsequently knocked my Teamwork down a few rungs, although still Harmony. So.... I still have no idea. What I do know is that the two teams facing off in the S3 GHL Finals do not have Heroic WI. One is just OK and the other is Strong, but seems to border more on OK than Heroic. I'm sure WI has an impact, but it seems like having talented players has the most impact on winning and losing.
  2. A great Finals matchup for sure! Defending champs and beasts of the East, the Dragons against the West Chicago Hawks (formerly West Chicago Protons, and multiple time champions, of Biscuit). I can see dynasties starting for both of these teams.
  3. We need more off-topic posts around here. I am pretty boring when it comes to booze, tbh. My tastes are similar to what you listed above. My typical go-to is American whiskey/bourbon or beer. I've been getting away from beer recently as I tend to like the darker, hoppy beers, but recently drinking one of those feels like I just ate a 32 oz. prime rib on top of a pound of pasta. My biggest decision is usually whether to drink the bourbon with coke, ginger ale or straight. If I want to mix things up I'll have a vodka and sprite - or vodka and red bull. If made right, an Old Fashioned is really good. I just never have all the ingredients and don't like spending more than 15 seconds preparing my drink. If no one is looking, I'll add a splash of cranberry and wedge of lime to my vodka-sprite. And maybe once a month I'll have a glass of red wine with a meal (but not something I would drink without food and I don't think this is what you're going for). Tequila and rum are also good, but haven't had either of them in years. Amaretto, Sambuca and Drambuie are really good, but after a few shots you get sick of em. The only things I absolutely would not drink are gin and white wine... or something fruity with umbrellas in it, unless I'm on a tropical island somewhere, in which case it would be the first thing I ordered.
  4. Everything seems back to normal now. I started noticing the issue with the Messages page around January 10th and the problem persisted until yesterday January 15th.
  5. Yes. For me it has only been the Messages page which can sometimes take 5-10 minutes to load. All other pages are fine.
  6. Pending some draft research this weekend, there's a chance that I'd want to move up into a Top 10 draft position. Would be willing to package my GHL 1st (#20) + 1 or 2 younger players to make it happen. Edit: Nevermind
  7. The Hawks and Prairie Stars are both on #@*k!&g fire and about to collide!
  8. Per the "Current Road Map" post, there is apparently a new release coming this month with a new Scouting feature.
  9. Wow, so the regular season series between all the current match-ups was 2-2. These quarterfinals should be very close. I agree that the Dragons and Red Tide are the two best teams in the East - and will be for quite some time. They are starting to get a little rivalry going, which is great. The Prairie Stars and Hawks have been the two best teams out West and I don't see that changing any time soon either. But we all know that anything can happen in the playoffs, which is what keeps it exciting. And rainsilent - great season for you despite the early playoff exit. I was impressed with what you were able to accomplish with a team without much super star power. Taking nothing away from the Nightmares as Tyrod always puts together a solid team (think they are much better than 8th place btw), but the OT and double SO losses were a rough way to end it - and I still think the fact that we can't edit our SO lineup makes it frustrating at times. On paper this was more like a 3/6 or 4/5 match-up. Good luck to all remaining.
  10. I suggested something very similar to this in the Focus Group prior to the reset. I don't think I can link the post here, but here is what I stated. We should allow managers to Bid over the Cap. To clarify what I am suggesting, here is an example: Say a team has $10M in cap space and wants to sign a free agent. There are two free agents they would love to bid on, but they are both asking about $8M. My suggestion would be to allow a team to bid on both players and select a priority (or have priority be based on the amount being offered) sort of like the draft priority function. Bid $8M on Player A (priority 1) Bid $7M on Player B (priority 2) If player A signs with your team, the offer on player B becomes invalid for salary cap reasons. If player A signs with another team, the offer on player B can be processed. I don't have the slightest idea what level of effort this would take, but wondering if something like this would be possible in the future?
  11. The full stats thing was my #1 suggestion here: http://forums.gmgames.org/topic/17642-a-few-suggestions/
  12. Damn. I stated that I was determined to win this in Season 3, but came up short. Although I just realized that 2 of my players were #1 and 2 in Hits this season which makes me proud. But I am still determined to win this one at some point.
  13. Imagine your team being such sh!t that you have to hate on greatness. "Not as good as he once was". Sure, I'll buy that. He's 42. GOAT
