Uhm, raise your hand if you are still here!  It seems that our league has almost vanished with few active managers and virtually no cross talk or anything for the past two months.  I know there might be some "meh" feeling until the new launch, but just curious.  Also, saw some surprising roster changes from typically very active managers.  

 

Also, let's not forget to congratulate Jusu of the Richford Rebels as Season 16 champs!  Quite the upset!

I'm still around, although not as much as I'd like recently.

 

I can also tell I'm going to have a hell of a time competing in GHL this season.  21 MILLION!  Wow.  I can't wait to see what he eventually accepts from another team.

I'm here! And getting stronger for the supposedly last season - I do not believe the transition will be happening this year :)

 

I signed him, Paul. But he asked for something 4.1M from my team and I added 400k to get him, although there is no interest in signing players anymore, apparently. What I don't get is the number he asked from you - you don't have the reputation, but still 21M is 5 times more then what is real value of his salary. That can't be real for GHL newcomer - nobody would stay in GHL with such problem to get new players through FA. I would propose to write to Anders if he can check this and perhaps start on different system for new GPHM.

It was probably just timing.  I happened to be on right around the time all players were released.  Also, I wasn't trying to complain - didn't mean to come across that way.  I probably should have posted that in the "humor" thread.

 

I do take slight offense to how the game views my team and manager reputation, though.  If my calculations are correct, I should be #1 overall. :)

Yeah, if anything, I find the FAs are still too eager to sign for too little money.  Ho hum, another season with us all with 90+ players and the two new teams barely able to scratch together a B squad, no offense!  The economic engine is broken in this and needs to be fixed before the new launch, whenever that is.  :)  

 

I'm always one FA from the title!  

 

I do think the reputation thing is now too out of control.  Rebels just signed Sontag for $3M and I offered $3.7M and was denied.  I'm fine with that, actually, as they are defending champs and all, but I got some message that I was over the cap, which wasn't the case because my other FA hadn't yet declined my other offer.  The system should default to whichever FA takes your offer first.  Now you can't make concurrent offers to FAs.  I agree you shouldn't sign more than you can afford, but if there are two FAs that are more or less equal in my book, I have to fight for one and if I lose, hope the other one wasn't taken yet?  That's not true to life.  Maybe I'm the only one that feels that way.  

 

Regardless, until the salary cap and salary requests are realistic, FA combined with the elevated OVRs make the game kind of broken.

Hey now!  The Leopards B-squad are going to come out firing on all cylinders.  :)

Yes, this needs to happen!  Although with the new auto-promotion system after the reset, I'd be surprised if you didn't either win SHL or promote via SHL playoffs in S1.

 

...and if this upcoming season last's long enough, there's a solid chance you are in GHL by the end and I am back in SHL.  Haha.

0-2 so far in GHL preseason.  But both (close) away games.  I'll take the optimistic approach for now.

I'm still here in full managerial mode. In fact, I just spent $2 Mill on a defender in the SHL as a last ditch effort to take the SHL by force. I'm there with you littleB: got beat down in round two of the last playoffs...so this may be the last go at it. Best luck everyone!
