Im rather new in gameplanhockey, but not in gm games general. This game has by far most potential from all i have played. I have few suggestions that i think would make this game better.

1) Games could be spectaded live. Maybe watching play-by-play instead straight knowing the score? So simulating the one play-by-play. That would make game much more thrilling to watch. Cant imagine the mind in GHL playoff final spectating overtime play-by-play live!

2) Trophies after refular season and playoffs too. More the better, both team and player based.

3)Stats of player selected stars of the week in that week.

4)If possible, adding some pictures to headlines etc. Maybe picture of player scoring in his team jersey when selected to stars of week. Picture of players celebrating goal when opening preview of game? Goalie making save etc. They could be standard faces alltime, only changing jerseys name and number. This would make gameworld more alive.

5) interview of manager in some situations. Questions that manager can choose answer and then posted in headlines. Maybe in big trades, winning or losing streaks, player breaking trough etc.

6) feature to compare two players ratings, profile, contract everything

Just few ideas. Would like to know if some sre good and allso if you think some or all are terrible. Thanks and sorry for bad english.

Edit: 6)

Play by play is brilliant idea. I played Trophymanager way back and live games brought huge amount of activity on chat.

You can simulate the game same way you do it now, but then just play it in the next hour, not knowing result in advance. For those who doesnt want to watch, they can check the result after its done, just like it is now.

For me play-by-play live would be the most important from those too. Still can skip it if in hurry or not interested, but for most live would make this game much more alive and tell me about those feelings in important games and playoffs.

Hi all, few more ideas that I think would be relatively easy to implement. Love this game when it was free, now the subscription is required it needs to move on, the core game is good just needs some depth.

For Me, the addition of all time club records would be nice, after 10 seasons etc your club would record and remember those players that have served you the best, so top 3 appearances, points, goals etc etc. All time Winning streaks, highest wins etc would also be nice, even to the point of retiring a jersey for those that serve you well. Bogey teams\easy teams would also be interesting creating a bit of rivalry. Just means each season isn't treated in isolation. There is some history but should be pushed as part of your club identity.

My team just finished top of my ghl conference after a long 80 game season, i was particularly underwhelmed when winning the last game to seal the league win. No reward\recognition, just move into the playoffs.

I will give it 12 months or so as i fully respect and trust Anders to deliver improvements based on the game so far, but as a paid product it will need to come in my opinion. Good luck with the project!

The records and history stats etc you said is very good idea! I just love it and should be rather easy to add. Im not a coder tho. After play-by-play live this is idea that I like a most!

Play-by-play, team history and player compare(free agents) all sound like great ideas to me.

To make trades easier if we could do a search for what teams are looking for what. For example if I want a 1-2 defenceman, then I could search for all teams with a player matching that description on some team's trading block. As well, if I'm looking to move a 1-2 defenceman then I could search what teams have that as one of their transfer needs. Might make trading easier.

 

Also when looking for players, if I have "Filter out unrealistic targets' then players in leagues higher with one way contracts shouldn't be shown.

 

Just my two thoughts!

+1 for being able to filter out one-way contracts in higher leagues. Would make search a lot more efficient.

Hi!

 

Really good suggestions! We are reading this carefully and will try to make the game more live of course. We have plans to extend the experience for more recognition when winning and player trophies and such. Even an "all star game" are things we look at.

 

About play by play there is a bit more into it and we are looking how to implement such a thing. We have heard rumours that if it's not good it could ruin the game so we want to make it as good as possible from the start. Can't promise anything right now. A lot of focus right now is to fix minor bugs and help new managers joining the game because we get more and more coming everyday.

 

Hope that satisfied a bit?! 

 

We are listening to all your suggestions and we together will make this the best manager game!

 

PS. About the interview thing, if anyone want to be our official ingame reporter with interviews with managers and stuff. Feel free to take the role as "Game Plan Hockey Managers Reporter" Could make a new section here on the forum if anyone up for it?! DS.

This satisfied very much indeed and i like the thing there is good communication between players and developers! All star game sounds very good addition as does the trophies! Any indication is there possibility to have trophies before season ends in cage?

Could there be addition of national team competion? Maybe national teams could propose best managers from game world to manage them in national championship, which could happen maybe same time when draft is? Again just some idea from back of my head

I agree with the national team thing.  Since offseason is longer now, it would be nice to have a world cup or something.  Even if we can not manage it, the world cup would add something else we could follow when our team is eliminated from the playoffs
