Had a minor hick-up when switching over to the new season. Game world is now running again. Have postponed simulation a couple of extra hours.

Ahh, I see. Just to make sureā€¦ It says the youth draft is the next in line for simulation but it also shows that the guys I've drafted previously are still on my team. Is it just showing a schedule?

TBH as long as all these old veterans I grabbed stay healthy I might be ok this season.  Going to take some work though.

Oh goodness, what a pre-season.  3 wins wasn't what I was expecting!  It doesn't count but does give me a bit of confidence that 12th is within my reach!  Not setting my sights too high that is my goal for this season!

I understand that there are aspects of this game that you want to remain "mysterious" so that everyone has to come to their own conclusions, and there is no easy-button for newbies to push.

 

But if there were clear directions, that still wouldn't guarantee things, because its hard to keep good talent assembled for a great amount of time. And even if you knew what piece you needed to fit into the hole in your team, it doesn't mean that that piece will be available!

The problem is not that some aspects of the game remain "mysterious", it's that members of the inner circle have access to this kind of information and use it for their own profit. Perhaps all this could and should be solved with a detailed  explanatory guide to the game that would be available to all users and in which more or less all keys to the game should be - in a way or another - accessible.

An inner circle- what is this, Scientology or some sort of Collusion?

I've never personally heard of an inner sanctum of GPHM masons that have access to secret constructs outside of those building the game. Am I missing something?

Of course there is no inner circle.... Haradrim you just stay right there we are going to bring you a surprise!

 

I fully expect St. Louis Topcats to have a new manager by morning...... :)

I don't think it needs rephrasing or indeed exacerbating. I am making no accusations. 

 

I only think that it's about time for the game to have a detailed and working guide so that all users - and especially new users - can have a chance to understand how the game works much earlier and in a fair way.

On a different note.  This season has been fun in GHL!  

 

Still think I will be lucky to survive even with current position but enjoy the thrill!  Now if I could just manage to beat Exxeo somehow!  Game yesterday was close in score but really wasn't in gameplay... my keeper saved me a bit.
