In Topic: Playoff Speed

February 15, 2019 - 04:14 PM

I'm sure they have discussed it at length in focus, I just can't remember the password and don't go in.  Around the 40th work password and all the others just don't stick.

Doubt I'd go slow on the second account without a quick playoff.

 

 

Um From Boston and has Def Leopard (good band) instead of Boston graphics???

There was a vote and the result was to keep things the same speed... but the vote didn't take into account game world speed.  I suggested we vote by world, assuming it would be beneficial for a slow world to speed things up, but if not, that's cool too.

 

Boston... hehe.  I never really got into the classic rock stuff.  I dig it from time to time, but Metal is more my speed (especially 80s Metal and Metalcore... and some of the melodic death stuff).

Some ideas:

 

Wrister

Chiclets

Sauce

Flow

Celly

Snipe

 

Or you could go with somewhat famous nicknames:

 

Rocket

Dominator

Hammer

Flower

 

Or some combination of the best players as mentioned above:

 

Orr

Gretzky

Howe

Lemieux

 

Maybe a vote at the end once all ideas are compiled?


In Topic: Why do players cost so much?

February 08, 2019 - 10:32 AM

The title of this post is a bit misleading.  I think the real question is why does it seem players are asking you for a higher salary in comparison to what similar players have signed for with other teams.  Rainsilent is correct - there can be quite a few reasons for this.

 

I understand what you mean as I am dealing with this after having promoted from SHL to GHL.  I've had to overbid on players by $1M, sometimes even $2M just to land a player.  In one case last season, a player who I offered a contract to signed with another team for $1.5M less.  That is all related to team or manager reputation, I forget which one.  It is what it is - and it's going to be fixed after the release anyways.

 

Rainsilent also touched on the other two scenarios.  Either the other team signed the player long term when their rating was much lower and the player has improved quite a bit, which the other manager should be praised for.  Or the other team swung a trade with a higher league team and the salary was greatly reduced, which IMO should not be allowed.

 

Lastly, there is a greed factor in the game, so there is a chance you are just dealing with a greedy player who is asking much more than other players.  I've come across a few of those every season.

This was voted on a bit ago.  I had a recent post in the focus group that voting should take place per game world.  I can't really speak for fast or normal since I will be joining the slow world, but I'll give my two cents anyways.

 

Fast - No need to speed up the playoffs for obvious reasons.

 

Normal - I wouldn't want playoffs sped up here either.  A game every 12 hours is good.  A game every 6 hours and you are possibly sleeping through 2 games.

 

Slow - Yes, I 100% believe the world should be sped up during the playoffs for quite a few reasons.  If you are not involved in the playoffs, or even if you get eliminated quickly, you are waiting forever for any action.  If you are in the playoffs, I don't see why you wouldn't want quicker results.  A game every 12 hours seems reasonable.  I mean, even if you are a lazy A-Hole :D that sleeps 10+ hours a night, you still won't miss an opportunity to change things up between games, if needed.  I also have 3 kids and work 60 hours a week on average, so I'll never buy the "too busy" claim.  Keep it moving!
