I think it's all intended. It stems from a reduction in training that occurred in a previous update that reduced player development to make it more realistic from top to bottom. This year's top prospects look a lot different than seasons prior as well as only the top few picks really stand out in the crowd of prospects. I assume that as the slower leagues progress it will be seen on that playing field also. Overall, I'm all for it - just may take some time for everything to plane out.

Funny, because i think otherwise. Last year draft was really bad. This year is much better IMO.

On a related note, has anyone noticed a drop in the regression of older players?  It seems like all the 35-41 year-olds are superstars still, like Father Time forgot their generation exists.  It's kind of frustrating, honestly.

I agree with me colome. There was an update on more chance for oldies to stop but only 3 guys did that at the end of the season.

Now we have a teams with 40 year olds not regressing at all.


Glad the draft is getting weaker it was just absurd.
Goalie prospects at 97 or more kills realisme

Re: Old Guys, I think this is just a case where an adjustment inadvertently went too far the other way.  Not that I should complain with my Centermen all using walkers to get down the ice, haha.  Before, you could set your clock to a 37 year old being worthless at the end of a season.  Now some of these guys are pushing 40 and playing like they did 5 seasons ago (or better!).  However, I have noted that there appear to be more retirements, which is a good thing.

The thing is, they don’t regress and have tons of experience.
With this you dont need to think about using youngsters.

I noticed former stars rather stay in FA for 2 seasons at the age of 38 dropping 20 points than hanging up their skates.
So little selfrespect.

If they love the game :wub:

 

I might also be wrong, but imo the change was made so that younger players have a "skillcap" and when surpassed their developement slows down a lot and also so that the older players would regress a bit slower(especially this I'm not so sure) and they wont come down Mt.Everest with a sled when they hit the age it happens.

 

E: I also love it that there aren't 30+ GHL lvl players right from the draft.

My Dangles starting goalie was 39 last year and had an amazing year now he's 40 and I feel like he dropped off a cliff had to go sign some 20 year old

This is all intended Guys. The original idea was not to have the average GHL team filled with 92 OVR players. Development was cranked back a touch a few seasons ago so now we are just starting to see the results of that. It's an equal playing field in the end...and then maybe we can finally get the average down near 85 rather than having 8 Crosbys twirling around out there...
