Hi, in CHL, I have signed player from non-playable league. I know I have to offer contract before Day 3, which I did. He accepted my offer the next day: Season 1, day 4

Forward Donovan Chateuvert has accepted your contract offer

 

But he remained in his team and looks like he will be joining me next season. This is expected? Because when I offer contract, it says only I have to do offer contract before end of Day 3, not he has to agree before Day 4.

Weird, I just had the opposite happen in Buzzer. I offered a contract on day 2 or 3 and it was just accepted and transferred on day 5.

Are you absolutely sure Neural? I thought how it works is that the it doesn't matter when a contract is offered, but what does matter is when the player accepts the contract. If the contract is accepted on days 1-3 he should immediately join your team. If he accepts any other day, the player will wait until day 1 of a new season to join your team.

Looks like you are right Matt - now the same happened to me in Cage. If this is right - the text needs to be changed. I can confirm you can offer contract only in "Silly season" (Day 1-3), so the text is partially right, but one does not understand from it that if the player does not decide within the 3 days, you will loose him for entire season (and if you plan to move to better/worse league, it will be pretty pointless acquisition). 

Btw. Are there any help files, newbie guidance? I haven't read it since early beta (or alpha) and this forced me to care more, like read the help info again. I'm sure it is much better now and many things also changed.

With the release, lots of the help files are outdated. I read (I'm thinking on the release page) that the staff will be slowly updating the files as they have time. Right now I think they are focusing on the new bugs being noticed and crushing them to keep the user experience nice.

Absolutely sure. Look at this guy's news and then his stats that list his RUHL team. Signed on day 5.

Though if you're not in Buzzer you can't see I suppose lol

It's weird, because it says 

  • Season 1, GHL, Joined Portland Steam as a free agent and signed for a 3 year $1 010 000 per season contract

while there is his S1 line for RUHL suggesting he was in Russian league and not FA.

 

This is my player:

I suspect a bug but maybe that is my wishful thinking, for now i think im just recalling everyone during the preseason and sending them back down every night to make cap room in case they show up
