#46534 Cage Season 2 Individual Player Awards (GHL)

Posted by AlexanderRasputin on October 02, 2019 - 03:34 PM

To celebrate the beginning of the 2019/20 NHL season today, the second annual Cage Awards are up!

I added some categories based on feedback from last year, split the D-men awards, and adjusted ratings for others (i.e. removing +/-). 

 

It was once again tough to get into detail, as it is impossible to sort lists bottom up, and only top 20 players by each category are visible, but this should be accurate nevertheless. Including runner-ups as usual. 

 

Scoring was down this season in general, so competition was tighter than last, but goalies still seem to rule the Cage world. 

 

Have at it.

#45333 Retire

Posted by Paul T on August 09, 2019 - 08:24 AM

This will be an unpopular opinion - which I totally understand - but I kind of like the way things are now in terms of player development and retirement.

 

Currently player development is all over the place.  I have a 22 year old that has only improved 1 rating (+1 shooting) in two seasons with no additional improvement in sight.  I also have a handful of 22-27 year olds that have improved almost every single rating over the first two seasons.  Also a 34 year old that has improved skating, spirit, endurance and +1 overall this season.  That all being said, I like the slower rates of improvement as it doesn't allow teams to stack up with younger players and end up with all 90+ players in a few seasons (like the old game worlds).  The truth is most 22-27 year olds, on average, will still improve +1 "overall" every 2 seasons (i.e. if you sign a 22 year old 88 overall, when they are 26 they will be 90 overall).  Obviously there are exceptions to this, certain players improve faster, slower or not at all - which is where scouting becomes important.  I suppose it's less exciting to see those development messages in your inbox less frequently, but I'd rather that than GHL teams with all 90 rated players.  The way things are now also values older veteran type players, which is how it should be.

 

As for early retirement - age 23 is a bit excessive.  I can agree with that.  But I personally think the game is more fun when the occasional curve ball is thrown your way and you have to react... and manage.  Key word being occasional.  If we start seeing 23 year olds retiring every year, then it should probably be changed.  Then again, if it's "lazy" players that retire early, then this adds a ton of strategy to the game when signing players and I'm all for more strategy.

 

Just want to avoid the game becoming "who can obtain the youngest team possible and keeping that team in tact for the next 10 seasons without any bumps in the road".  Because that was the case in the old world and the same teams won over and over again without much change year over year.

#39571 Top Jerseys

Posted by Deadwing on May 29, 2019 - 06:19 PM

Okay, so I've been rebranding a lot during this season. First I found the colors I want to have, then I found my old town name from Fishbowl, freed after a manager quit. Now I'm still wishing my old team name would become available, but maybe it was removed being "Wings". So now I'm Pixley Flame, which sounds pretty nice. Hopefully it's the final incarnation and lasts through seasons to come. Reposting jerseys. Like I declared earlier, Pixley is playing playoffs using away jerseys. They go in order of Home -> Away -> 3rd special.Pixley%20Flame%20Jerseys.jpg

Hopefully things will settle down the upcoming week.

#39669 Cage trash talk

Posted by Erzac on June 02, 2019 - 01:25 AM

Congratulations to Erzac on a good series. Every game was very close and decided on one goal.

Cheers. A much more even series than what the wins show. Could've easily been a sweep the other way.




#39641 Cage trash talk

Posted by MattBerserkers on May 31, 2019 - 04:33 PM

I'm not done with the game, I've just been busy with life. Honestly I've been checking about once a week so Im not sure why I was booted. Myabe its because I havent checked my fast team in so long that I got booted from both worlds.

 

 

 

I should add, I'm a little bit peeved I didn't have time to make deadline deals :P and also I'm glad my team wasn't immediately raided.




#39630 Cage trash talk

Posted by Paul T on May 31, 2019 - 12:07 PM

This probably isn't the best thread to post in as it is the exact opposite of trash talk, but it seems to be the only Cage discussion, so what the heck...

 

First, congrats to the Bangers, Plastic Attack, Patriots and Owls for promotion from SHL to GHL.  I am personally looking forward to battling with the Bangers and Plastic Attack again (BHL/SHL Biscuit days).

 

Second, good luck to the Flame, Savage Storm, Dragons, Defenders and Giant Strikers in your playoff quest for promotion.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't pulling for the Flame as I enjoy competing with active managers.

 

Third, good luck to the Elite, Blue Thunder, Battlin Bears and Supersonics, who are all currently battling to stay in GHL.  That's gotta be nerve-wracking.  It's amazing the way the Elite were able to turn their season around.

 

Last, and definitely not least.  Huge kudos to both Fango and Antti (Claws & Kamikazee).  Currently in relegation, but sticking with it.  Too often the only managers that get recognized are the top of the standings, but there's a huge something to be said when things aren't going your way and you stay with the team and keep battling.  I see too many managers who just bail if their team starts losing.  Think more people need to really enjoy the game for what it is.  It's a manager game with a huge element of luck/randomness/chance, whatever you want to call it.  It is just as fun, if not more, when you actually have to put more effort into it or get creative.  The only unsuccessful managers are the ones who leave.  Their loss.  Regardless if your team is doing well or not, you still get to enjoy what the game has to offer.  It's cool to win, but I personally have much more respect for the managers who still have fun even when they don't.

Wasn't really sure whether I should start a new thread or not, so here goes.

 

Anyone played around with the editor to create an away jersey for your team as well. While we don't have the option to wear an away jersey "officially" in game— at least not yet, I'm thinking about following the idea of my home town team and play all playoff games wearing away jersey by simply changing the design for the said period just for shits and giggles.

Here's some alternate jersey ideas I came up with.
