#40035 Season 2 General Chat

Posted by Naekfor on June 28, 2019 - 02:32 AM

so as a heads up, anyone looking in transactions might see me having traded the same players, multiple times, to different teams, for no one in return... yeah i was curious about trading for untouchable players and didnt know what if anything would make them go through. so... yeah... sorry and my bad for any confusion

market might be rough, people desperate to compete with a lot of cap space overspending

#38719 Signing from Europe

Posted by Naekfor on March 09, 2019 - 03:32 PM

FA is really thin, as gold youre probably worse off, i just kind of threw money at whoever is left. It isnt ideal, but at the same time, all worlds are now past the 6th, so its something they probably feel they have time to work on before it really comes into play again. yes it kind of sucks, but i think more everyday issues might have the priority. hell i might be too tight on cap to even take the players now. I gambled that that might be the way  to go and it backfired, but going through and moving player by player might be timeconsuming, let alone if there was something funky going on with the rejections. and right now i dont have cap space, so would they have to go player by player asking me who i want? making sure i move players to aahl to fit them under cap? have them letting me go over cap isnt fair either. At least i am blanking on a perfect solution. why i joked about just blaming the players agents for messing up paperwork. At the time i thought i could fit them because i would be assigning some of my signings to aahl and have signed others since, but to try to resolve this on a case by case basis seems a major headache. i dont think they can necessarily say that all certain pending contracts go into effect now, and if they did there would be cap hell everywhere. i suspect they just decided to take the time they have and try to fix it for next season.. though i was a tad surprised no one tried signing players from europe or whatever in any of the testing to have run into this



also since youre screwed, can i have your players? a lot of silver seems to have those cheap cheap gold hand me downs, so if you think youre in trouble?  ;)  ;)  ;)  (not serious, doubt youre screwed)

#38485 Game Plan Hockey Manager 2.0 - Release date announced!

Posted by Naekfor on March 01, 2019 - 11:42 AM

not a priority, but if we are listing issues. there are a few players you cant seem to place on waivers... and yes i was trying to put my 3 most expensive players on waivers to go after FAs... I'll worry more about realism in a few days... dont judge me...

#36478 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by Naekfor on August 09, 2018 - 11:46 PM

spreadsheets isnt premium, but making it easier could be a pretty big thing. what takes me a month (not constantly, obviously) to manually put in with likely errors could be done in minutes the day before the draft. also a game i played let people order id numbers and upload a draft order which would make it easier as well. with the bigger worlds, i will need the longer season to go through the entire draft...



on that note, one worry i have had since before the new ones, will juniors have simmed a few seasons before the first in the new world? my ratings are useless without that... then again if things change, as they seemingly will, they will likely be useless anyhow


the talk of community is nailing it in my mind. I am trying to convince myself to at least try it a few months, but especially if features are still trickling in and all the time ive sunk into my own (likely shit) formulas turn useless, it feels more like starting a new game than continuing. as others ive grown attached to my team, and though i have made moves to get older, the core i built when i started is just reaching mid 20s and i am in my first season after promotion. if those attachments are gone, meaningless arrays that they are, then i would be staying for the community. if littleb and other familiar names go, i will honestly spend all my time regretting money spent, which i tend to do anyways. 3.50 is doable, i do wish it was per season and not per month. 42 dollars is where it starts to get uncomfortable. i dont spend that much on games, ive loosened up to buying old games on sale. then i own them and i can go through them when i have time.  what the game has is community because 42 dollars per year, then a few years its 126 and it just starts to look like a bad purchase for me when a tenth that can get something on sale. i dont know. I had myself convinced to try it a few months and now i am swaying back the other way. i like anders, i like the game, i like the idea of anders making money, but its pretty much going to be a new game if substantial people are leaving, and if i had joined a game where i was to pay after the first month, id have at best quit after a few days if i gave it a chance at all. 



my intention was to provide things that could make the game easier and customizable rather than true advantages. i vastly prefer to spend a couple actual years as a feeder team building up resources then go win a title than pay to play. to me, i just assumed there were tons of pay to play games where there wasnt extra stuff. i have actually never, i think, paid monthly fees for a game. ive put some money into games, but generally that was when i was under the impression the things i got from that would last. when the game changed and those things went away and required monthly payments, i left, even with still some funds of a sort there. ET please dont take this personally, but from my perspective I think i have possibly disagreed with every single comment you have posted in this thread (finally made myself read it all, sorry for the spam) just different perspectives. there is separate leagues, some where you pay per month and get everything, other ones where you can unlock everything for the same price, but you can unlock some features for less or none at all for free. i might pay a dollar to not have to input all those number manually as that is where i spend the vast majority of my time in this game. a dollar every few months is more than fine by me, but i wouldnt ever change my name, even if it only cost a dime everytime,  the customization i wouldnt care about. i personally dont see a lot of these thigns as pay to win, its more pay to customize or make things easier, but i can see how to some, pay for eaze could be like pay to win, especially if they think going through whole draft classes is ridiculous. i do it and i think it is. ideal for me, is that the game would take time or money for about the same results. those who invest more time can get all the functions that aid players, they just have to put the work in. times when they can't, they will suffer. those who put work in and pay would have an easier time and probably be more prone to faster leagues or more teams. then again with some of my ideas that would cost them extra so that isnt so fair either. 

i think they nailed it when calling this a make or break move. i think, biased as i am, that is what this is, and without a lot of community help pushing it and ADs that hit the right people, i worry this is a potential break. Reading the comments i started worrying even more about people leaving. if the game becomes mostly playing it alone then 120+ dollars over 3 years is horrible. I kind of feel like i would be paying that much to send paul the occasional message. 
others brought it up, but i would strongly urge, though i am sure it is harder to do. whatever the price is, it almost has to be per season and not per month. it would likely devastate slower leagues. though if its not per team then i guess some could try to get more for there money by more teams and not faster leagues. I do share the worry that we are keeping worlds, expanding them. adding new ones, then almost assurely losing over 50% or players when full worlds transferring would only about half fill the new leagues. My first thought would be to try and cut down on leagues almost till they start to fill though that will have other problems, i think empty leagues could be absolutely fatal to this game. rather than a faster league, if i try multiple slow teams... with this model how many slow leagues can we really fill enough of? also as a#@! as i am about going through whole draft classes, for me it just wouldnt work unless there were an easier way to begin with. i am odd and not indicative, but its hard to see the changes working out for me though i think i at least owe anders to give it a chance.
again, in my experience, the best manager game i played allowed people to do it and beat and entire world of thousands of other people for free, it just took more work  and speaking to others to learn tricks. I am biased and think that is thus the way to go, because it agreed well with me, and if it didnt have 2 games a day and times i needed to be up at 5-6 am on weekends i would still be actively playing it most likely. that game has lost a lot of people but is still a much much larger game that is translated and has support in a number of languages and a much larger staff, and even then i dont think it is fully funding them anymore and they have had to start other games, etc. I tend to think bouncer is right about focusing on growth, but again i am biased and that is easier said than done. 
other comments, feed into pride. in said game international winners get press and immortalized in a sense, i got a small trophy shipped overseas to me which i dont suggest. its low priority, but a formal hall of fame for a teams great players or champions visible or listed cross world can all play into pride some. i still log in to the other game ot see if records still stand or to clear the unworthy out of my team hall of fame. I have no idea what happens in worlds other than biscuit and if i were able to, i would at least be curious enough to go flipping through other worlds looking at differences or for familiar names
edit: holy shit this started as a short response, i am apparently physically incapable of being concise. I probably need more human contact or something

#35562 Trade value formula

Posted by Naekfor on June 17, 2018 - 07:35 AM

I am assuming that it includes things that are no longer visible to us, such as greed. As such that is one I actually havent even attempted yet. I am also not sure if profile traits are linked to ranges like normal attributes or if all "motivators" or "dirty" etc are the same. then again i largely ignore trade value personally, but I know others who rely a lot on it, I just really havent looked into it. I am inclined to think its not something we can get too accurate with what we have easy access to.

Congrats littleb, you did all the work, you deserved it. Also youre active and someone needs to congratulate you before youre in the awkward position of trying to figure out if you should congratulate yourself

So... is kivinen the favorite for MVP at this point? I mean, tomcats I wish you well and all, but the whole 40 saves a night is a bit annoying  :angry:

Posted by Naekfor on June 11, 2018 - 06:46 PM

The 2.95M I am paying that goalie sure made him nervous.  He better turn things around real quick or he's going to find himself on waivers. :)


I may or may not be counting up pennies in anticipation (I seriously hope to have a goalie before then, and not that much cap space)

#35408 Inaugural Tarnished Silver Biscuit Plate PreS 15

Posted by Naekfor on June 11, 2018 - 03:06 PM

pretty sure this was my only player (save maybe my backup goalie) who didnt display weak checking. I choose to simply be happy that someone on my team can check. Getting picky over who seems a bit petty, no? 



#35405 Inaugural Tarnished Silver Biscuit Plate PreS 15

Posted by Naekfor on June 11, 2018 - 01:04 PM

since the post games are in I guess I better post my belated preview




I did this instead of something useful... like trading for a goalie


enjoy your win wendel, but even if I was at home, you should be ashamed that I took you to overtime, even by my own metrics I have the worst team.


speaking of shameful acts, did anyone actually manage to stay out of the penalty box in the other friendly

#29605 S11 Trades

Posted by Naekfor on August 31, 2017 - 11:35 PM

Looking to make a deal for my top player as I won't be able to sign him next season


A link to the player or even team might help.


I would recommend not making a habit of unbalanced trades as it will effect your trade "reputation" in the game and it could potentially flag you after repeated occasions. But like I said, person to person interactions I wouldn't worry about...unless your "friend" is really just your own alter ego :D


IDK, this guy traded me a draft pick. I am not sure any alter ego of mine would do such a thing for anything less than a fortune.
