#36103 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by Jack Reacher on July 24, 2018 - 09:15 PM

So we will lose all records of our cups, records etc?

To add to the question, if the Game Worlds are reset, can the managers that won the Championships get like a little notice on their manager page. I was thinking like right under the experience bar. It could say like:

 

Manager First Name

Manager Last Name

Manager no.

Nationality:

Games played:

Record: 0-0-0-0

Experience: 1 seasons

Championships: 0 Cups (like right here)

Reputation:

Trading: Neutral

 

And after every Cup win a cup gets added so the hard work a manager has put into the previous seasons doesn't get forgotten. It's just a suggestion. Also, thank you to all the moderators as well as Anders for working soo hard on creating a more competitive and friendly environment as well as upgrading this game so that it can reach its full potential. Very thankful guys, keep up the great work!

Excellent work! Thanks for all the effort!

 

Just one question: will current leagues be reset to zero or will they be keeping their current players, stats, positions etc?

To add to the question, if the Game Worlds are reset, can the managers that won the Championships get like a little notice on their manager page. I was thinking like right under the experience bar. It could say like:

 

Manager First Name

Manager Last Name

Manager no.

#36036 Playoff Push?

Posted by Jack Reacher on July 20, 2018 - 07:08 PM

I hate my team. LOL. I thought the year would go great since I got some of my key veterans returning, but all it did was just sink me in 16th early on. It took me 10 games to actually get out of 16th only to be stuck in 15th for 5-8 games. I stayed mediocre for the rest of the season then my team finally woke up but it was too late. I made a playoff push and on the last day of games, I beat my opponent 5-2, which I thought would seal my playoff hopes, but no I lost out the #8 seed to another team that had a goal differential of +4 and I had +3. It was quite disappointing and quite upsetting since this was my second time of not making playoffs in franchise history. I just wanted to share my story...BE Prepared no matter how good you think your team is! Good Luck to all teams in playoffs and everyone BE PREPARED, I WILL BE BACK! lol :cool:




#35977 How do Computers actually decide when to accept trades?

Posted by Jack Reacher on July 17, 2018 - 10:39 PM

I mean I offered a team my GHL first, SHL first, GHL 2nd, an 87 overall dman(21 years old), and a 23 year old 90 overall goalie, and a 28 year old 94 overall goalie for a prospect who is 20 and 96 overall. I believed this trade would go through since the other team is getting relegated so I believe this would give both teams a future since all the guys I offered are signed for 2+ years, and his goalie is on his last year of his ELC and doesn't want to re-sign im presuming.

I agree with ET2018, i would assume you would utilize some common sense when doing the trade and stuff.  I don't want to rip too much into you, but I would only forgive you once I see some kind of proof you have improved and will not revert back to cheating. Like you said some managers will take more time forgiving you,but I myself will need you to start by earning back our trust, which will take more time. And proving you won't cheat again is the only way I will be able to forgive you.




#35971 How do Computers actually decide when to accept trades?

Posted by Jack Reacher on July 17, 2018 - 09:19 PM

So i have been trying to acquire a decent prospect from my team from a computer team. I tried filling all their needs that i saw they needed and what was on their "wants" list. I believe i over payed for one player, but the computer keeps rejecting.I keep upgrading my offer, but they would not accept. So the question of how and when do computer teams accept trade offers has made me curious. Can anyone tell me?

 




#35944 Adam Gundersson cheating

Posted by Jack Reacher on July 16, 2018 - 05:53 PM

Hi, my name is Ricky Jones. I have recieved multiple messages since doing the trade. I am brand new to the game and didn't know it was against the rules. I have only been playing this game for a while and i thought it was ok to do so. After the multiple messages from managers they have told me what i can and cant do in the game. Im sorry if i discouraged any of you by the trade. I was unaware you couldnt do that and for the reason of sparing myself from suspension/banishment i decided to resign. Sorry for the inconvenience and trouble i have caused all of the managers. Im sorry, wont happen again.

Well Ricky, I also had to deal with similar problems when I first joined the game world back in Howitzer Beta days. It is difficult to learn to play the game fairly although most of it is common sense, without being on forums. I hope you learned your lesson. I suggest going through the forums reading on the rules and how to play fairly. Dont be afraid to ask seasoned veterans like me in Howitzer GHL for any advice or questions you may have. Hopefully many of us dont have to run into you for a bad reason(cheating).




#35626 GHL Tradeblock

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 21, 2018 - 08:13 PM

Well it looks like the age factor of the game has caught up to me. I am trading everyone away except Kadura who is untouchable. In return for these high overall players I have, I need atleast 1 prospect(88+ overall and less than 20 years old) and a draft pick. The asking price is steep because these players can make an impact on your team instantly. Any team that cannot afford that price please message me to find out what type of trade we can negotiate. ALL TEAMS MUST message me before offering, if teams don't I will most likely ignore your offer. Thanks and let those messages come in!




#35568 Old Guys

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 17, 2018 - 07:51 PM

I have a guy named "Seb Jett"(43 years old) and he is legit a god. He has dropped a lot from being 94-95 overall, he is now 56 overall but he has been a major factor on my team. I still have him signed to a contract so that he can retire on my team, and so that he can retire a legend(yes my team is the legends and the pun was intended). He's been here since the start of Game World Howitzer.

#35567 How's Communication in Your World?

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 17, 2018 - 07:38 PM

In Howitzer GHL there are only very few messages about trades and thats about it. This game is not based on communication between managers. It is not really needed but yes some can use to discuss about trades or other stuff. You can send an offer without sending a message. You can also put in the transfer what are your needs. I dont know where Jack Reacher saw alot communications because i dont get much any message after a few seasons in there and to be honest i dont have much to say also. This is a single player game and there is nothing much to say to other managers other than maybe ask about a trade. I also dont see why we would need a place like ET2018 asked where players say useless stuff like how they feel about the game and how well they have done or not. There is the forum for this already and personally i dont have time to lose reading useless stuff lol... We can see the standings and results and dont need to see managers comment on themselves and on others.

Well Marque, many people saw my post on Howitzer forums about the GHL trade block and now teams in the GHL and SHL have been contacting me since my posts on there. There are some managers who like using messages so they don't offer some stupid trade and get themselves ignored for a while. I want to keep an open relationship with all managers, but if they don't consult me before an offer for a high rated player, I will just ignore their trade. If they do message me, I'm more inclined to accept the trade because both managers would have a back and forth negotiations going on. Just recently I have had about 3-4 conversations that have gone back and forth more than 5 times about a trade(Gator Raid, John Smith, Alexander Rasputin). I try and have at least one message to every team per season, even if it is to just talk about their team and their success and not a trade offer. I have asked many managers about their opinion on a player and that has helped me with the learning process when I first joined the game and so I want to continue it to more managers if they need any advice or anything like that. And managers like Wick (New Castle-GHL) have really improved communication in the game. He has a poll every season about the league and its players. It's fun to see what other managers think and it opens up your eyes to the possibility of learning something from veteran managers.




#35559 String of continuous injuries

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 16, 2018 - 10:40 PM

What exactly causes a string of continuous injuries to your team? I've never had it this bad before. Nearly every game I get some sort of injury. Including tonight where I had two injuries, one of them being major. My team is mostly old, but that hasn't caused injuries this consistent before, and they are all solid GHL players, so their endurance is high. I've tried reducing training to easy/medium for most, with easy going to the older guys, but that hasn't really settled down anything. I almost want to say this is some sort of strange bug or something. I recently switched the training levels down, so maybe it takes a while for training effects to settle in? Seems weird though. 

In my experience changing the training hasn't done much if the player is a consistent player that gets injured. Go to a player's individual stats and check how many games he has played in each season and based off of that determine if he gets injured or not. like 5-10 games injured is fine like once every 5 seasons or something, but if it's more frequent then I suggest either trading him while he still has value or having a backup to play his role since he will probably get hurt. One thing that has worked for me is changing the tactics. I used to play on hard and players would get injured left right and center, so I decided to to play around with those tactics for one season. For every 20 games, I switched up the tactics each time(one time "Hard", next "Dirty", and so on). From that correlation I determined player injuries had something to do with those tactics. From that experiment, I learned that more injuries occur in "Dirty" tactic, then "Hard", then "Normal", then "Fair", and then "Safe". My team had 0 injuries when playing in Fair and Safe. Hope this helped.




#35551 Trade could not be accepted [Fishbowl]

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 16, 2018 - 12:25 PM

Are there players involved that are on either waivers or in your affiliate. I have experienced this problem before. The fix to it was to take players out of the affiliate and onto the main roster. If there isn't anyone like that, then it must be a glitch.




#35523 How's Communication in Your World?

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 14, 2018 - 07:34 PM

The GHL in Howitzer is very communicative, but there are a few managers who have gone off the radar in some instances. They do log onto the game but just dont bother to read any of the private messages sent to them. I think SHL is also like the GHL, except there are more beginners in that league and most are asking for my help or some other GHL manager's help. I guess overall communication in GHL and SHL Howitzer is great, i dont know about lower leagues though.




#35442 Draft Preferences

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 12, 2018 - 06:07 PM

So Draft preferences help you to order your picks and prospects you want. So basically if you have the first overall pick, if the draft preferences are not selected, the computer will automatically take your #1 pick, but if you do have a preference, select the player you want and then go horizontally across to a drop down bar which is set to any pick. Change that to one of the drop down options, which will be "first round pick", "second round pick", or "third round pick". This ensures that the prospect you want will be chose n with the right pick. But also remember to set draft preferences to "use shortlist over rank", so the computer chooses from the players you want instead of the ranked ones in the draft. Hopefully that helped.




#35289 Playoff Push?

Posted by Jack Reacher on June 06, 2018 - 11:10 PM

There will always be that tough decision between going for the cup or staying low enough to get a top 5 pick. Since Howitzer is a fast paced world, I would risk dropping spots to gain a better prospect, but this year's draft is pretty disappointing to tank for. I would actually try to win in the playoffs so that your team can gain some reputation and so that players get used to playing in playoffs. Anyways Good Luck on the rest of the season, and possibly the playoffs if you choose to go for it!
