#36014 Promotion impact

Posted by TheWizard on July 18, 2018 - 11:42 PM

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.

#35979 Important! Where did all the mascots go?

Posted by TheWizard on July 17, 2018 - 11:09 PM

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.

#35978 How do Computers actually decide when to accept trades?

Posted by TheWizard on July 17, 2018 - 11:04 PM

I think if you offer too many players/picks for just one player on the CPU team, the CPU will reject the trade.


BTW, Jack, I deleted the identical post you made in the Howitzer forum.  No need to double post.

Did you report Ricky Jones to support@gameplanhockey.com?  If not, I would recommend doing so.

#35710 Trade Offer Abuse by Fang

Posted by TheWizard on June 27, 2018 - 05:21 PM

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.

Welcome, bgreene21, glad to have you on board!

#35650 Historical stats

Posted by TheWizard on June 22, 2018 - 07:35 PM

Good point, Eric, I believe all the past stats are kept in the database on the server, but not visible to us GM's in game.  This may become a feature in the future.

Welcome ntn29!  It's such a gratifying feeling to go from the LIHL to the GHL!

#35521 How's Communication in Your World?

Posted by TheWizard on June 14, 2018 - 07:23 PM

The forum mimics the game world.


Biscuit communication in-game is strong, and the Biscuit forum is the most active.


Conversely, Fishbowl is quiet both in-game and on the forum.

#35260 Question about a player with mixed results

Posted by TheWizard on June 05, 2018 - 10:52 PM

I wouldn't worry in the least, Levy looks like a really good player.  Even though his rankings are better at shooting than passing, he seems like a solid playmaker for the two snipers on his line...and he can reverse and backcheck.  At every level of hockey, there are some players who are better at assisting than scoring.

#35185 Prospect development

Posted by TheWizard on June 03, 2018 - 04:47 PM

I've noticed this too, Squidonice, less contracts being offered for prospects.  I do see some here and there for my prospects, mainly coming from European teams, but I still have several unsigned prospects getting zero reps in, which stunts their development.


I have done what granpubah hinted at; I sign my promising prospects and assign them to my affiliate.  At least that way I know they'll get some reps in on my minor league team.

#35092 Waivers and contracts

Posted by TheWizard on May 31, 2018 - 05:48 PM

Only reason I noticed it was because I was tracking the specific player.


Stalker! :)


But in all seriousness, the user on holiday thing makes sense.

#34841 Questionable trades...

Posted by TheWizard on May 23, 2018 - 12:20 AM

I expect to act like a father with kids, not on an Internet message board with what are supposedly adults, but nevertheless...


I don't care who said what and when, just drop it, all of it.  Ignore each other.  Ignorance is bliss.  If you guys don't stop the bickering you'll both be off the forums completely, understand?

#34752 What to do when you get promoted

As long as you two are done.
