  1. Sorry for the late reply. The fix provided with the last release will only prevent this from happening in the future, it will not automatically revert any trade caused by this bug. I need more details regarding the trade you're referring to (if you have already provided these details, please remind me again), please send an email to support@gameplanhockey.com. I can't promise anything but we will have a look and see what we can do.
  2. See my latest post in Current road map for info regarding upcoming releases Yes, I will try to add this as soon as possible
  3. Here's a few lines about what we're currently working on. For the next upcoming release we will have two focus areas. First, we will add a few features that will help new users getting familiar with the game and some features to help the marketing of the game. Secondly we will continue to add more micro management features such as any of detailed training schedules, scouting, individual tactics/lineup assignments. And we're still planning on introducing league awards, all star game assignments, national teams as soon as possible. We will also try to improve the possibility to communicate with other managers and overall improve the online presence in the game. For a releases a little further down the road I can reveal that I've begun a rough draft (still on the sketch board) on how to implement player/manager interactions and player relations. And viewable/live games is still a relevant feature for the future.
  4. All help files section in this forum have been updated with the latest texts now included in the game.
  5. Updated October 28, 2019 ## Shortlist The shortlist is a list of players that you have an extra interest in or that you want to keep track of. You will be notified in your manager inbox for any event regarding the players in the shortlist. For example it can be wise to shortlist a free agent that you might want to sign later. If another team offers a contract to the player you will be notified and have the possibility to take action before it's too late. The shortlist is also used when scouting and selecting prospects in the yearly youth draft. See youth draft section for more information. To shortlist a player you can either use the action menu on the player's page or by using the button found on the player card that is shown when you click a player link.
  6. Updated October 28, 2019 ## Player form The player form, confidence and health, will influence the player's game performance and affect his game play. So it's wise to keep a close eye on your players' form. ### ConfidenceThe player's confidence will impact the player's game performance. At the beginning of each season the confidence value will be impacted by how the player finished the previous season but at the same time somewhat equal for all players. The confidence value will not improve or deteriorate instantly so have patience and monitor the value during the season. Pre season games is a great way to boost players' confidence and give them a jump start getting ready for a new season. Player confidence is mainly impacted by the player's performance during games. Every action the player is involved in during the game may impact the confidence. Also, achievements such as being named star of the game will boost the confidence. Player confidence ranks (from worst to best): Anxious, Uncomfortable, Ok, Good, Perfect ### HealthThe player health status will impact the player's game performance. If given too much ice-time or in combination with too hard training the player's health will start to deteriorate. The player's endurance rating will impact how much effort the player can handle before being fatigued. Fatigued players are at greater risk of being injured. Player health ranks: Injured, Exhausted, Tired, Fit ## Player happiness{{player happiness}}Unhappy players won't perform as well as happy players. The player happiness will also impact the player's development and when the player decide to retire from professional hockey. What that will affect the player's happiness will vary depending on the player's psychological profile. Things that may affect the player are, but not limited too: game performance, affiliate assignments, contract situation, club and career situation and interest from other teams. The player happiness ranks (from worst to best): Miserable, Unhappy, Frustrated, Concerned, Happy
  7. Updated October 28, 2019 ## Manager career All users have the possibility to have two simultaneous careers in two different game worlds. Managing two teams in the same game world is not allowed and may lead to the user being banned. ### Taking over a teamWhen a user takes over a team he or she will be assigned an already existing team within the game world that is not occupied by another user. The new user will then have the possibility to customise team name, mascot and colours. But all history of the team will be kept. Just like the move of a franchise in the NHL. New users may as best be assigned a team att CHL level. That means that BHL, SHL and GHL level is only available through in game promotion or by gaining enough reputation to qualify for a job in that league level. See the manager reputation section for more info. ### Start new careerTo start a new career, use the action menu on your manager page and choose the career option. Choose one of the empty spots and click the button start new career. You will then have the option to choose which game world and which league level where to start the new career. A team will then be proposed and you'll get the possibility to customise both team colors, mascot, city and name. To switch between careers use the same option from the action menu and click on the select button next to your team. Also note that your manager reputation will decide which league levels that are available to you. ### Resign from teamTo end a career click to manage your career from the action menu and select the resign button. You will need to confirm the action before finalising the action. Once confirmed the action can not be undone.
  8. Updated October 28, 2019 ## Games Each game produces a detailed game report including box score, player stats, play-by-play events and an assistant's report with valuable insights on how your players performed. ### Game previewBefore each game you can access a preview with important stats from both teams including your assistant's report about the opponent. To access these previews simply click on the preview links from the game schedule found on either of the team and league pages. You'll also find a preview link from the next game panel found on the home tab on team pages. ### Game resultsAfter each game you can access a game report with all the stats from the game including a very detailed assistant's report. To access these game reports click on the game result links found in team and league schedules and on the last game panel found on the home tab on team pages. The game report includes the following: #### Box scoreThe box score contain all stats from the game including the three stars of the game. #### Player statsThe player stats are highly detailed and also contain the players' game performance value. #### Play-by-playIn the play-by-play you get a view of how things went down shift by shift during the game. The events' timestamp is given in whole 30 seconds. ### Assistant's reportsBefore each game you can access an assistant's preview report that will reveal some insights on your opponent's style of play. Approx 30 minutes after each game you can access an assistant's game report from the action menu of the game page. This report will give you valuable insights on your team's and player's performances. ## Friendly gamesFriendly games are available on pre season and is a great way to try out your tactics and lineup. To create a friendly game simply visit the team page of the opponent you want to challenge. Choose "Friendly game" in the action menu and select an available day for the game. Note that you must wait for user managed teams to accept your invitation while computer controlled teams will confirm the game immediately.
  9. Some issues regarding the salary cap on the last day of the season have been resolved with the v2.1.0 release. When bidding on free agents on the very last day (or during the playoffs) you are actually signing players for next season, that's why the next season's cap is used.
  10. Fixed in the v2.1.0 release. However, it would do more harm than good to release or remove already offered entry level extensions. Bu the bug is fixed from causing this error again.

    New features Support for payments with Strong Customer Authentication (Already pre-released in September)Reworked and integrated help files including page guides, quick help and searchIntroducing - Advanced statsHelp filesThe help files are now moving into to the game. To the bottom right of your screen you'll find a big help icon. This is the help menu, from here you can access page guides and all help files. The page guides are a great place to start if you're new to the game while the help files section will explain how things work in a more detailed manner. The help files section also comes with a search function to easily find what you're looking for. Most help files texts have been reworked and many new sections have been added. Even so, there may still be gaps to fill, so don't hesitate to contact us if you're missing some info. On top of this, you'll also notice small help icons in the game. These icons can be hovered for a quick tip and clicked to open the corresponding help files section for further reading. Please note that you can hide these help icons by visiting your manager page and select settings from the action menu. Advanced statsIn this release I'm really excited to introduce some advanced stats into the game. I've always been a big fan of hockey stats and it has always been a big part of this game, so it's now time to take the next step by introducing Corsi and PDO stats. These kind of stats is a great help when studying teams' and players' performance over a longer period of time. It's a great tool to predict trends and spot slumps. On team and player pages you will now find a second sub menu for these advanced stats. And this is hopefully just the beginning, we're looking to add more advanced stat types and analytics tools in the future. And if you're now missing some stats from the old views, the missing stat columns may have been moved into the advanced stats section. Please note that even if the game engine always produced these kind of game situations we never extracted the stats until this point, that's why stats will start to be collected and displayed from your next game and forward. If you're new to these kind of stats and want to know more please note that the newly added help files are updated with a new section regarding these stats.
