I agree with Ineffable in that this post was misleading and was calling you out. I was gonna say keep it to a private convo as bad things always come from drama.
But yeah, some trade offers are just insulting, no I don't want your shitty expiring prospect and a huge salary dump with no players that are an actual improvement in exchange for my 1st pick once it's looking like I will be in a good spot for promotion. Are you just hoping that I misclick agree and that you get away from highway robbery? Stop it. (My SHL promotion run only got 3-4 offers like this, so I'm probably making the problem sound worse than it is in reality.)
I think the easiest option that might get people to realize the offers that they made were shitty is to add more rejection options rather than just hitting "this offer doesn't fill any needs"
Some suggestions that avoid sounding like an asshole might be:
- I don't think any of the offered players would improve my team.
- I'm not looking to move my picks right now.
- I'm not looking to trade players right now.
- Thanks for the offer but I'd rather look to improve my offense right now.
- Thanks for the offer but I'd rather look to improve my defense right now.
- Thanks for the offer but I'd rather look to improve my goaltending right now.
- Please come back with a more realistic offer.
edit: It would be a fairly minor change, but it would give a person more info on why all their trades are being rejected, as well as give the "trade rejector" an easy way to inform the other person with what they actually want.
Another suggestion could be to attach a "send message" button to the trade screen to facilitate faster and easier trade talks than the current methods.
