#34338 S14 General Chat

Posted by Erzac on Yesterday, 08:18 AM

Another annoying result from the bloated overalls is that players are an indistinguishable mass.

 

As 99 marks the best of the best, currently in Biscuit GHL there are:

 

24 world fastest skaters,

11 world best passers,

14 world best shooters etc.

 

And if you'd think ~95 is "elite" in a category, then basically any player on any given team is "elite" in something. Which shouldn't be the case obviously.

And there are lots of "Yu" types out there that aren't going away anytime soon.  At least this year's (and last's) draft looks more human. 

Here are the notable 25yo or younger GHL goalies I could find with a quick glance.

 

Vojsovic, 20 - 89

Malette, 21 - 95

Cook, 22 - 90

Fricker, 22 - 94

Koivula, 23 - 95

Senko, 24 - 96

Strass, 24 - 95

Yu, 24 - 96

Keehan, 25 - 90

Ormsby, 25 - 94

 

These guys will be in the game for at least 10+ seasons. And they'll get even better still. Also, there seemed to be no immensely talented 18-19 year old goalies around.

I truly don't understand how the team manages to perform so poorly. The only trick I haven't tried is sacrificing the assistant to the hockey gods, but sadly that option isn't in the game yet.

A good start to a season remains unchecked on the bucket list. After winning the first three games, the team is now 5-1-0-10. The first line that was doing solid work last season has managed to gather a minus-12 rating in 16 games.

Got one in the first game of the season. Funnily enough, the player's name is How(i)e, so pretty much nailed it. He won the fight too!

Average age would be an interesting add.

Updated the first post. Age from 18 skaters + starting goalie.

Oh sh..., now there are 9 teams above 90 OVR... I remember S12 (not so long ago, right?), when I was the only one. This is going so fast we will soon have a full 90+ roster (I need just 4 F and 1 C to achieve that and surprisingly after long time I have no problems with cap space anymore, so it is doable - not that I want or will do that, but possible).

 

Here are the average GHL team overalls from S11-S14. Shows a pretty steady increase with no sign of really slowing down.

 

S11 87,91
S12 88,61 (+0,70)
S13 89,37 (+0,76)
S14 90,02 (+0,65)

#33617 Player salaries & cap (bug?)

Posted by Erzac on March 23, 2018 - 01:29 PM

- Increase cap space. Like you said if we want to make it more real, like NHL for example, the cap space needs a boost in every league. If the contract adjustments kick in then the current cap space is far too less. I'm not saying we would need to sign all the players because that would be the same problem, but if contracts are adjusted and you can only keep 7-8 players due to the cap space then all the building is for nothing.

- AI improvements in player accepting contracts. Right now every player accepts his new contract. At least in GHL. It's too easy to sign a player, even when you're a top team or a bottom team in GHL.

Just something that came to mind, the easiest way to probably resolve this would likely be a gradual decrease of current salary cap over a few seasons until it's at a "realistic" level in comparison to the current contracts (probably somewhere between 40-50 million). A gradual decrease would allow teams to make necessary moves and prepare in advance.




#33605 Player salaries & cap (bug?)

Posted by Erzac on March 23, 2018 - 06:10 AM

I'll keep hammering at this a little more.

 

Superstar contracts should take at least 10% of cap space making those players a real commitment cap-wise. Currently in Biscuit GHL there are exactly 2(!) players that take over 10% of cap space. (With many star players taking much closer to 5%)

A ratio of 0,125 players/team.

 

Compare this to the NHL:

In NHL there are currently 30 players that take up 10% or more of a team's cap.

A ratio of 0,968 players/team. Almost eight times higher ratio than in Biscuit GHL currently.

 

Not saying this game should try to model the NHL, but clearly a change is needed to make the cap space an actual factor in decision-making.




#33573 Player salaries & cap (bug?)

Posted by Erzac on March 21, 2018 - 06:18 AM

Would just like to bump this thread a little as I see this as a huge issue and it's not being talked about much.

 

Many players across the board in GHL take significant pay cuts in their extensions regardless of age, skill or production. It's more of a rule than an exception.

A player should never agree to a pay cut unless his production or skills are clearly declining/not worth his current contract.

 

Currently if you get your hands on a player (in GHL), you will never have to let him go unless you want to (barring relegation/retirement), which really takes away from the managing experience. Having realistic extension demands from players would at least alleviate the problem by making cap space a real issue.

14 penalties!  Including two 5-minute majors within a minute of each other.  34 penalty minutes = more than half the game on the PK!  Hahaha.  I mean, I didn't stand a chance at even strength, not sure why the refs had to make sure of it.

And ZERO for the other team?  I think there are some KHL teams that would be jealous of that level of bribery!  

Quite, but wasn't just that one game - in the entire 3 game series the Leopards had a grand total of 30 seconds of PP time.




#33059 Player salaries & cap (bug?)

Posted by Erzac on March 12, 2018 - 03:51 PM

Indeed it's way too easy to hold on to star players (or any players for that matter). Sometimes they even accept extensions for less money than what they previously got, even if their skill level has remained the same or improved, and they are still in their prime.

 

Individual stats (and maybe team position in the standings/playoffs) should also play a role when it comes to how much a player asks for. If a player is coming off a great season he should ask for more. Significantly more if he has great stats season after season.

My starter goalie has been pulled three times in the first period in his past 5 starts. 10,62 GAA and 72,56 SV% in that span.

When is our next game!?!?!?

Unfortunately that is still 14 days away.

Funnily enough, the game ended up being a 1-0 shutout win for my goalie.
