I have not done a thorough check to make sure that this is indeed the case, but it appears to me that no players this season are improving their skills at all. 

 

Aging players are deteriorating, so skill levels are not entirely fixed.

 

I believe the problem with lack of improvement has been occurring all season. But, again, I have not spent much time ensuring that absolutely no players improved one iota all season.

 

Thanks for looking into this, Anders.

I have the same issue, no improvement at all since 2 or 3 weeks. But, worse, almost ALL my players are losing skills every week (young and old, playing or not). Are they celebrating their good season too much?

Thanks for reporting. I will certainly have closer look at this.

For info, all my players continue to lose skills (since the restart this week). All the training of the season is already lost, and it continues: not a single player improved, but my assistant worries a lot :-). The average improvement for the whole season is -1.89.

Could you provide the urls to your team and to a couple of the players not improving.

 

Thanks.

Situation since last Thursday: out of 30 players, 10 lost at least 1 point overall rating (4 players joined the team only yesterday, so these are still OK).

The worst one: Preston Descoste went from overall 77 to 75 (he did not play, but there was only 1 match in that period).

Since approximately 1 month, many players lose skills every day, and not a single one improved anything.

The problem persists this season.

Every player on my roster and throughout the league appears to be affected.

It is good that all teams are affected, but it would be nice to fix it before they all get negative skills :-)

Everyday, get an Assistants report of 2, 3, or 4 players losing skill levels.  

We're talking about regular line-up guys, ages 25-35, and training on "hard". 

 

Things are decaying fast in Mitts.

Yeah, I've got a team of primarily 22-25 year olds all with hard training and not a single one has gained a point in the last 2 seasons. Most of them have somehow declined, some by multiple points.

Seemingly at the same time as the player-decay bug started: goalie performances had fallen through the floor, with the leading goalies barely having a .900 save-percentage.

 

But now: the goalies are all all-stars, with .930; .940; and .950 performances over the first 12 games of the new season.

So perhaps the player-decay bug will be corrected alongside the goalie performances? 

Or maybe I'm just free-associating two things that are completely separate.

I hope so!

 

What is your Mitts team? I'm SHL Spartans and haven't had any players get better at all. I have noticed the goalie thing too!

 

Look forward to facing your Lumber team tonight on my quest to climb from the bottom of the standings.

I don't think it's been fixed yet...I've just had a bunch of guys in their early 20s decline.

The problem has persisted for more than two seasons. It feels like the NHL is turning into the Allsvenskan.

 

Anders, are you having any success finding the source of the problem?

All the young players I signed in free agency are starting to decline now too.

Hi MNLK.   Thanks for your message.  Didn't see it 'till now.

  We are currently managing the Blackville Blacks, GHL in Mitts.   

Having a good season with some good young talent.  Thinking of dropping team, and returning to bottom of LIHL if we can win the Gold-Cup, but hard to give-up when we get a little attached to the teams and players. 

 

How is your season going?   Weird to manage with all of the declining players eh?

For the first time in three seasons, one of my players (a 20 year old) increased his overall skill level.

Hey! Just saw this now!

 

Your team has been my biggest challenge in Mitts this season! I think you have a real chance at the cup.

My lumber team really did suck last year and I'm hoping we can get promoted now.

 

Let me know if you want to talk trades on either world.
