If there is anyway some of us can help in terms of getting the help files and guide please let us know. Anything we can do to help ease what you have to do would help I would think.

Are there any plans for a free league in the future?

That's a great idea! Thanks for suggesting this.

 

I have made a clean up of the help files section and added the new help files I'm working on. I have also made a post on how to contribute to these.

I just hope the amount of current users is enough to keep the game going. I completely agree on that the lack of help files is probably one of the biggest reasons why a new manager doesn't stick around. I remember when I started and I was lost like a cuckoo. Fortunately, I wanted to find a great hockey manager game so badly that I bombed the chat with questions until I started to get the hang of it, probably driving a few veterans on the brink of insanity in the process (thank you for tolerating me so well). A general guide is great to have, but I'd also wish to see some terms opened a little in a way they're easy to understand. I'm still a little lost with some of them. For example, the term "gritty". I know what kind of a player is gritty in real life, but how does that translate into the game. What specifics am I looking? That's just to point out one example.

 

Future plans sound very good. Let's start building towards 3.0 :)

you need more micromanagment... chemistry between players, lines playing different style, etc...

as it is now, aside from a tweak or two, once you set your team - not much to do besides trading...

There actually is chemistry between players as I understand it. That said unless your team hits it off instantly there is always some fiddling that could be done to the lineup to try to find a better performing lineup.

Yeah and at the very least if there is no chemistry built into the game engine yet there are still ways to try and improve the output of your players. The game performance average is a good measurement of if roster tweeks have helped. If I have a guy who's performing in the low 70s but I think he should be performing better I will shuffle him around to try and improve that.
