I am a fairly new manager here, and I need some information about focus assignments. I couldn't find any resource on that anywhere, but feel free to redirect me to a thread I may have missed.
My team has played a pre-season game today, and it appears that although I have made sure that each player in my lineup has its role matching the focus assignment of its lane, the assistant report for my game still mentions that some of my lines had "major problems with their focus assignment".
For instance, my third offensive line, with focus assignment "two way", composed of three players whose roles are set to "two way" had these major problems.
Can anyone help me understand what is going on? Are those "major problems" a big deal for the performance of my team? What can I do to fix these problems?
Also, if you happen to know, I'd be interested in knowing whether its considered helpful to even run an energy line? I've always had my two first lines be scoring lines, my third line a two-way line, and my fourth line a checking line, but I am unsure whether that's the way forward.
As I said, I am pretty new here, so throw all the information you can at me! I want to learn as much as possible
Welcome to Game Plan Hockey!
About the assistant manager report. Look at it as a help to compare with your own conclusion about the game. There are so many parameters to compare in such a short report. And of course he can't give you all information. There are some hints and tips and trix!
Well hope I can shed some light into this issue. We looked at everything involving signing players from rest of the world.
There is one bug if you offer your contract to late on day 3. It depends on the simulation that day. We will look into this but for now it will stay like this. So to be sure. Offer your contract before day 3 if trying to sign rest of the world.
There is a little bit more into this issue but that’s the short version.
As Alex mention above we had a long discussion about this case and to begin with I would like to say there is NO CHEATING regarding this trade. I have seen messages as proof and after new release we got some new tools helping verify some things we couldn't before. Will not mention what of course.
This particular case happened because a player signed up made some strange trades and later resigned which is sad but will of course happen from time to time. We thought it was best to revert the trade because of this. So the trade is now being reverted.
With that said we appreciate people noticing these kind of things and report them! We need your help with this! So keep reporting! This time it turned out to be legit but next maybe not.
