#36994 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by EXXEO on Yesterday, 12:47 PM

Hey Team, just looking to see if there is an updated timeframe for the reboot. Are we talking the end of this Clapper season, the end of Biscuit season, or do we have a few seasons before we see the change? Just trying to calculate strategy for the current leagues. Cheers!

LittleB's squad and mine have a rivalry in some ways in that we always injure one another. In the last Clapper regular season match we knocked out his starting goalie for a long time as he entered the playoffs. The first match in Biscuit resulted in his team knocking out my best winger for over a week and then this last match in Biscuit he injured my goalie for a week. My question to you all is what conspired on this last Injury. According to the play by play, the Minnedosa Forward, Gobern, scored a goal and immediately my goalie is carted off the ice. 30 seconds later they score again...

It seems suspect...but what actually happened?

I'm still not convinced that the free league is better than others available, but it is of course yours do whatever you want. I cant pay and the free league will get boring quick (once you win what's the point) so I know where I'll be. I hope it goes well for you though. All the best.


Why is it that four out of the five comments that you have made on this fourm are negative and about the same subject matter? I don't know where your fifth is but I'm hoping it's all rainbows, unicorns, and teddy bears that give each other kisses and high fives because all those posts are such a downer. If you don't like using sandpaper for toilet paper… would you keep doing it? I surely hope not… That would just suck and sounds terrible! likewisw, if you don't like what you see, stop staring at it! It sounds like you have some better options anyway.

As for me and my Free Hockey team - we plan on bringing it! Besides, with all the changes it really sets up the leagues as if they are small NHL leagues. If someone wins the Stanley cup do they say, '...well fellas it's been great but I'm out, I can't do this crap again...'? I wish Sidney Crosby would but that's not how it goes - a challenge is as much as you make of it and I love our community so take your sandpaper butt and either get some new TP or...no, no other options - those are just nightmare-ish.

@JacobGirouard: you could always join me in the Frijoles League ;)

- we will have retried beans and microwaved can cheese after every match for our team post-game meeting! You can join that too!

.. you should give a reward to those that win for example 5 or 10 free hockey league championship to give them a life free subsrciption.


I'm not sure about a lifetime free account but earning something for winning 'x' amount of championships in the Frijoles Hockey League sounds intriguing.

And by the way - some of you guys who are asking to put up a fund to support players - what the heck?! You guys are super thoughtful! I wouldn't think anyone would have made comments like that but there are multiple of you that did! It goes to show how cool this community has grown.

Sorry about the early exit, EXXEO.  Great season - and we should have another close one next season.
 
Good luck to all the playoff teams.  I obviously have to root for the underdogs of the SHL, Musketeers and Bangers, to pull the impossible upsets here.  Go dirty or go home!


Next season should be a good (possible) last run in the current format. Our squad isn't changing at all and our young guys are developing quickly. Should be a better season than this one - hopefully....

I think I discovered the Banger's strategy for this round of Playoffs; take out the exact same positioned defensive forward early on in the match. Crafty!

It was quite Ironic that the same spot got injured but I'd have to say that the second match Injury didn't appear to be on the Banger's end. Royer won a faceoff but went too hard for it, slipped and broke his nose on his own skate! I know, it seems impossible but the video went viral after a Banger fan posted the carnage in YouTube.

Good luck with the GHL opponent Bodmin - take them out at the knees...or their face....doesn't matter who that way ;)

IMO, I'm a big fan of a total reset in terms of players/stats. Some game worlds suffer from really high stat inflation which has become, quite frankly, incredibly unrealistic. It may help reduce the average retirement age to a more realistic number as well.


I agree. Even though my team peaked at great points in development and I now have a crazy good young squad in the GHL, I'd be ok with the reset. It will ultimately level the playing field, where in some leagues that would take several seasons.

You can't be serious?

What is this, a hockey version of the Dark Knight? Yes, I'm serious - it's not like I'm working on my standup routine here - well unless my life is that comical, then maybe I should!

Listen, I was bummed that Anders lowered the $3.50 price because I thought that was a fair ask and even thought that $4.00 or $5.00 would be acceptable for how much work they do. I'm not trying to downplay that whatsoever, in fact, I'd like to think I'm in their corner on that matter.

I was simply trying to state that we can't say (or insinuate) that people are dumb for not wanting to pay to play. I'm the only income that comes into our household and I occasionally work more than one job and am in the middle of other Business plannings. Raising one ravenous kid is not cheap, let alone two. On top of that we are trying to reduce our student loans because if anyone has ever had $30K + hanging on your shoulders as dead weight, you know it just bogs you down mentally and financially! If you have like a few grand lying around Deadwing please let me know and I can make an investment in reducing that amount ;)

I'm not trying to call anyone stupid in any of my posts, just stating plainly that everyone is in a different stage of life. My family is not in a bad spot compared to others that may be here, so yes, I'm 100% serious Heath Ledger.

Let's just chill out and enjoy the game.

Ooh, another name idea:

Frijoles Hockey League: winners of the season brandish the coveted Frijole Mole Trophy and all players get a year supply of beans from Walmart!

Anders, I'm really digging that! Those are some great ideas! I'll have to see if I'll go with the 'veteran' plan but that, at the least, means one team will be attempting to dominate the FHL.

Other FHL name suggestions:

Flugelhorn League
Fire Hole League
Flaming Hamburger League
Fuego Huevos League

I don't get all the upset over the subscription. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm on here playing probably 3 times a day, spending anywhere from 5 minutes to 30min each day.
The amount of time I put into this, and how fun it is, 3.50 a month is penny change.
I know money is an issue for people, but we're talking a happy meal a month.
On a related note, can you give more than 3.50? Devs deserve more for what they're putting out.

Zinyxx, I don't disagree that developers need to get paid for how much time goes into the process but I don't feel as if we can minimalize people's situations when referring to 'penny change'. Could I afford to make that $3.50 happen - I probably could but considering I have other financial priorities, it's just not wise. Besides, I could use that $3.50 penny change to cover ONE of my kid's 'happy meals'.

I agree with both of you (ET & CC) in that I'm really excited about what you guys are producing and I do feel it is worth asking for some change to cover your costs because I know as an artist that doing what you love is great but becoming poor in lieu of it sucks. You guys are worth the time you put in this.

On the other hand I do see what CcRenegades is saying also: I got here 7 months after him and love playing the game. If I didn't have two kiddos and a mountain of student debt I'd be in a different situation. $4 a month isn't much but it's enough that I do need to evaluate a few things.

Either way, I love what you guys are doing. Cheers.

I'm a bit behind on this conversation but here we go...

I've been around this great game for a hot minute and while I wish I could financially contribute, those cards are not in my deck right now. I'm thus not in the focus group - which I completely understand and agree with. I consider the focus group as a form of investor board meeting. As I currently don't have stock, I'm not at the round table...makes sense.

Is it hard to build a team and have it disappear. I took my current Clapper team from the IHL to the GHL and have a solid group of young guys to build on (although we are sucking at them moment) but I'm ok with a new start because the reset would allow even playing ground for everyone. Through many changes in player development etc. the game has seen swings of all sorts which benefit some and hinder others. This will create an even slate and a solid foundation.

I have also given lots of ideas to the suggestions section but honestly, I don't expect that all of them be considered or employed. Shoot, once I made a suggestion that the use of PEDs be allowed and also include suspensions when random drug screenings find the culprits...that's probably never going to be implemented (ha!)...and for good reason!

Lastly, no, I did not vote or discuss this reset or change but as I'm playing this game for FREE, what complaint do I get to offer? That's like telling a stranger off for giving you free tickets to a pro hockey match because you found out they were in the nose bleed section. It's just silly.

Thank you guys for your hard work once more.

All I have to say - you guys better not go out there and steal my team names when the reset happens otherwise the original 'Slaughterville' will live up to their names!!!

More typical back-to-back matches for us this season: yesterday we beat the #1 team on the road, today we lose to the #14 team at home...
