My team is getting hit by injuries. Lost my 4 th liner Center, lost his replacement aaaand lost his replacement to.
Noone on my team wants to play 4 th line Center now. Can't blame them.

In my other world I lost my 3 top players in 1 game..

I have Deen cpu teams put Defenders in front and forwards in defence.
Have looked at the teams and most of the players are +35 and on their way down the skillslide.
You have to look at it as a challenge. There is no fun in winning a league filled with crappy cpu teams.
A human team always has the edge. Cpu teams also tend to lose a few key figures during the season..

Up 2 places Without any significant trades. Had to let Bubby go. New goalie era needed to happen.


#32045 Draft Philosophy

I choose the one who slightly better evolves.
I feel like the gamestats depend on the role they play, the pairing and the line.
Things you can invluence.

This was a smooth season. The gap is big enough to be sure of the championship.

I have quality BHL players to trade so send me a PM or an offer.
Midway Crossfire BHL.

The first hurdle to the GHL has been taken

I'm getting into a losing spree to compensate my winning streak from before.

Bublik is still slowly increasing. He is one of the main reasons I can be a bit competitive.
He broke his record in SO last season.

So many questions..

I don't think this is the right place to personally throw mud at someone.

As X points out trading with the cpu got much harder.

 

We use our place on the forum for to much nonsense en negativity instead of building a fun-biscuit-active-world.

We should be the cookie that everyone here want to eat.

See me there-> made a biscuit play on words. :cool:

I agree with Paul on many of his points.

 

The progression had to slow down a bit, but how it has been turned around now is just to far in the other direction.

When I draft i try to find some gemm deep in the draft. Last season a drafted nr 57 with my second round pick because I saw potential in him. One season later he evolved as I had hoped with 6 points overall. As I think progress should slow down with the older they get I still was hoping to get 4/3 points out of him this season. But since the slowing down he is like a snail moving on salt.

 

When playing in say the BHL one of the most fun things to do is find good young players and develop them so you can push for promotion. These are mostly the players that you can bring with you to the next league in hopes they will level up to that standard.

Making them progress this slowly will make it less interesting for teams to try to develop youth or put a youngster in the line-up in the hopes he will evolve decently over the course of the season.

 

As for my experience in the GHL, I try to always put some youngsters in my line-up to keep things interesting and to prepare myself for when the oldies are just to old. The drop in overall skill is compensated by the fact you can look for youngsters that develop well and have them grow to a full-level-teammember over the course of a few seasons.

I had the feeling that some teams were trying the same, dropping older players to give prospects a shot. Those old players all get picked up by a few teams who now have a bigger advantage although they could be playing with half a team of veterans. They stay in the league and can repeat this process every season.

Older players just stay on top of their game for way to long +35 +90 is just to frequent.

Making the development slow down this much will also hurt the teams managing to promote.

 

cheers

It is true some players in the draft were absurdly good to begin with and keep developing at an unseen pace. And I believe Biscuit is rather ok if you see other worlds.

I noticed that my prospects aren't evolving even half the way they were.

 

I try to play with young promising teams and not have to many oldies on my teams. But with the slowing down of development and the fact most old guys stay ultra competitive well over the mid thirties it will sting.

Yes Steve!

You can dominate a game and outplay the other team but still end up losing. And let us not forget the games against the (most of the time) young super saiyan goalies. It can get brutal.
