In Topic: New Game World Names!

February 14, 2019 - 01:07 PM

Although I like creative names, they aren't often easy to remember.  I suggest instead maybe naming each league by a country or region?  Country would be obvious (Sweden, Germany, France, United States...) but regional could be (Europe, North America, etc.) or even more basic and one I like better (Northern, Eastern, Southern, etc.).  Could even go into North Eastern, South Western, etc.  


In Topic: Game Plan Hockey Manager 2.0 - Release date announced!

Good to hear from you Hurja!  

 

In the UAT, the teams at the GHL level were starting with about 1-2 90+ level players and the rest were 80-89 and had much more unique spread on skill ratings and profiles.  Thus, I hope this will benefit "good" managers more than the current field of players.  However, none of the UATs open ran past 1-2 seasons, so hard to determine the effect after 10 seasons, when Biscuit started to go off the rails.  Obviously, the GPH 1.X had tweaks that slowed development and decreased the drafted players OVRs, which is a good programming note that is being carried into 2.0.  Also, I believe there were further tweaks in the new version.  I know Anders has also stated that the hidden trait(s) that determine the overall peak ability and progression rate is a bigger factor in 2.0, which makes assuming a 85OVR 23 year old will be a 90+ by time they are 30 years old possibly less likely.  

 

I'd like to hear if testing beyond the UATs for Seasons 10+ proved that the new programming has resolved this problem.

In Topic: Which game world are you joining after the release?

Slow and low.  Debating between sliding back over into GHL or to go back down to one of the lower levels.  Have enjoyed playing with like minded managers the past several seasons, but also like the idea of new challenges and some different competition.
