In Topic: Young Players Still Declining

Those players generated on FA are likely completely random, including their hidden potential. When they get a generated with a much higher overall than their potential would otherwise allow, that's when they don't develop or start dropping for no apparent reason.


In Topic: Ridiculous results (sometimes)

It's also the very nature of simulations to come across as random sometimes. Under normal conditions, I'd say any given team within a league has at least a 20% chance of winning any other team within that league on any given night. That percentage is an extreme example, and even that leaves quite a bit of room for upsets.

 

And the better (player quality) team wins more often than it loses. For that I've some stats derived from the Biscuit power rankings over the 5 full seasons it's been there. Bearing in mind the power rankings only take into account player overalls, and there is always much more at play.

 

Between S10-S14:

67,5% of available playoff spots have been filled with top-8 teams.

Regular season winners have been ranked: 1st, 1st, 1st, 10th, 2nd.

Cup winners have been ranked: 1st, 7th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd.

 

The take is small, but it gives a hint as to that the materially best teams do prevail most of the time over a long enough time frame.

 

 

tldr, I think this game does a pretty good job when it comes to better teams winning games. There is always the random element that is present in sim games, as it should be.


In Topic: Offering contracts to prospects?

June 29, 2018 - 10:34 AM

CPU teams can offer contracts to prospects. You still hold the rights until 21. You can offer a contract to your prospect that is signed with a cpu team at any time, and he'll join your team at the start of the next season.

 

Human managers can't offer contracts to prospects they don't have rights to.

 

Edit: It appears that gators type faster than cats.

Wondering if Mandrykin will retire before or after he turns 100  :rolleyes: :D  

Oh snap, good catch  :D

There might've been a slight error there. It's fixed now.


In Topic: New Season Fatigue

Thanks.  Is the potential benefit to your team worth the extra fatigue for one preseason game?

I would recommend playing the full three preseason games to build confidence, but reduce training or ice-time for the fatiguing players if necessary.
