Sorry for not being active here on the forum. We are giving all our hours into developing right now.
There have been a misunderstanding here. The game will not be "closed" in November. There will be a short down period. Because our server provider will move their office in the mid November. So we have to move the server also. We do hope this will be as short and smooth as possible but we keep you posted. This is of course not the perfect solution or timing for that matter.
Just to clarify! We will keep the "old" game open until the new relaunch is ready.
We understand if people are losing interest but we only hope you have a little more patience. We doing our best right now to develop the best possible gaming experience in hockey management there is. We listen to your tips and advices and trying to implement as much as possible into the game.
Once again thanks for all feedback! We doing our best to keep up to date in all topics. This thread we are a bit behind but we wanted to post this anyway.
We understand that everyone can't agree with the fact that you after the release will need to pay for this game. As mentioned before the other option was to take it offline. We can't manage the game totally for free. With that said we still offer a free league were you can try and/or continue to play.
We care about our players of course and listen to all your suggestions. And even if things can change in the future we think a subscription plan is the only way to go at this point.
Some of you are reaching out and asked about sponsoring other players as well. We are looking into this and will be sorting some kind of solution. If you wanna help a fellow teammate you should of course be able to do so. We just so happy there are so kind people out there! =)
Regarding one time fees we don't think we can offer yearly subscriptions at this point. As you, we are not sure where this new release will take us. How many will sign up and not? So from the start we will take things slow and only offer monthly subscriptions. Example below.
Lets say you pay for a year but only a few other managers subscribes. That would be so boring! So before we know there will be enough managers to make this game fun and enjoyable we will not offer a year subscription. But of course when we got enough we hope to offer you both subscription plans!
We are currently working on mascots as we speak. But at the moment we have some issues with Howitzer and Clapper than are more important. But later this week or beginning of next I think we have new mascots again.
Just for the information it will be new ones because the other company didn’t want to extend the license. We are sorry for this.
