I agree with Gator Raid, I'm not huge on micromanaging the minutiae. I like how GPHM has a salary cap and that's it. It's not about being the richest team, it's about having the right players to win a cup.
Definitely a good idea, Eric! Coaches have been suggested before, along with other staff like Scouts. There is no ETA to implement these into the game, but I know Anders and Tobias have it on their list.
I always figured I was participating by posting suggestions when I think of them.
It'd be nice to be invited to a focus group, but I don't mind that I'm not. I trust that when myself or someone else posts a suggestion on the board, it is being brought up with the game designers and focus group and given due consideration.
For the record, suggestions posted in the Suggestions forum are very much considered by Anders and Tobias. Some of these suggestions have already been implemented, while other suggestions will be implemented in the future. Granted, not all suggestions make the cut, but this should by no means discourage anybody. Please keep posting suggestions!
Yes, if the offer accepted is a BHL level with one-way clause, and you will be playing in BHL, then it will be a one-way contract next season.
On the bright side, if you promote again from BHL to SHL, that one-way BHL contract suddenly becomes two-way. You can also release players with a lower level contract without ramifications. For example, have a player on an IHL level contract who can't cut it in the BHL? Release him and you will immediately have all of his payroll space.
I don't think uploaded logos are in the cards right now. I'm sure the game developers are cautious. It's a slippery slope, if they let one user upload a logo, they would have to open it up to everyone to be fair.
Personally, I don't mind using stock pictures, that way everyone has the same mix of logos to choose from.
Sounds reasonable, if only LIHL GMs in Fishbowl would return a message... ever.
I love a lot of this game so much, but 23-1/2 hours out of every day is very boring.
Try joining a faster game world that simulates multiple games per day, as opposed to one game/day in Fishbowl. For example, Howitzer simulates two games per day, and Dangles simulates four games per day.
You are welcome to join more than one game world, you just need a different email address for the second game world. Multiple teams owned by the same person in the same game world is a no-no, however.
