#36566 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by ET2018 on August 13, 2018 - 02:07 PM

IMO, I'm a big fan of a total reset in terms of players/stats. Some game worlds suffer from really high stat inflation which has become, quite frankly, incredibly unrealistic. It may help reduce the average retirement age to a more realistic number as well.

IMO, still better than loosing half of the active managers because they are not willing to pay that money... but this is not up to us. 

 

It's always better to ask for a nominal subscription fee to get the full game then making users feel like they have to pay to get more and more....

Limiting assistant reports to all star accounts would be the definition of pay to win...


#36439 new mascot

Posted by ET2018 on August 08, 2018 - 11:21 PM

For the Bucs New team colors and moved the team from Palm Harbor  to Pampano Beach.   (Florida West coast to East coast)  

For the Golden Lions new Mascot and new team colors.

For the Joshua Tree Medeors New colors, New Team nickname and a new Mascot. 

 

FYI:  Joshua Tree National Park is not nearly as well know as the other parks in California but well worth a visit!  

 

Again,  Thank you very much for the work that went into this!!!  I was only joking about a one time color change but WOW.    This was awesome!!!!

 

Agreed! Went camping there a few years ago with a friend. Beautiful place with lots of interesting geological features. We went off-roading and explored some the old mining areas in the park. Very cool.

If Anders and Tobias need the funds to keep the game alive, then a subscription fee is the only way unless they go down the route of "free to play" games which oftten turn out to be a microtransaction trap....(see Wargaming's games for example). We don't want that, do we?

 

If ad revenue is out of the question, I don't see any other solution.

 

EDIT: They could raise funs on a fundraiser website like Indiegogo or GoFundMe, I suppose.




#36202 Adam Lundberg cheating- Dangles SHL

Posted by ET2018 on July 29, 2018 - 04:46 PM

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

 

You really expect us to believe that?

 

You're wasting time creating multiple accounts on the forums now. No one believes you, and no one wants you here. Stop wasting everyone's time, and more importantly, Anders' and Tobias' time with your petty nonsense. You've been givien too many chances, and I for one, am sick of your BS.

 

 

Hey guys, this is Adam Lundberg. I know that it appears that I'm cheating, but the truth is that I haven't resigned on any of the occasions except from the Blackville Devils. Recently, my computer has been messing around, throwing emails, resigning me from teams, and adding accounts, deleting accounts and i really don't know how to fix it. I sent the computer to fix and i was told that the OS, memory and RAM are all bad. Sorry for the inconvenience caused and i hope you do accept my apologies.




#36196 Adam Lundberg cheating- Dangles SHL

This dude keeps on spamming this game with his sock puppets and cheating. It's probably that Adam Svensson guy. Pardon my bluntness, but he needs to get some help.

Lumber is full of dodgy trades and dodgy mangers. Welcome aboard.




#36044 Ridiculous results (sometimes)

Posted by ET2018 on July 21, 2018 - 06:29 AM

That's what she said.

But what annoys me is why a team even dominates me one game but not the next. Sure, there is some of that randomness, but some nights it's just pathetic how much the other team outplayed mine when in the previous matchup I won or it was more even. Yes, lots of variables and true to life, but it can certainly be frustrating.

 

I've noticed that too....

 

Results are more random/silly in Lumber due to the high ratings inflation we have. What would be a competitive GHL team in Biscuit or what not is hardly a playoff contender in Lumber because the top teams are full of 93-99 overall players. It's rather silly and I can't wait for the fall update so the unrealistic ratings can come back down to Earth.




#36043 national teams

Posted by ET2018 on July 21, 2018 - 06:26 AM

I've got a few issues that I would like to expand on as your suggestion is a bit open ended. The first is that there would be a rather limited amount of spots considering the number of nations vs managers. Who gets to manage? Would national managers get changed every season? If it's by reputation, then wouldn't it essentially just be a league for SHL/GHL managers? How long would the tournament last and when would it happen? As a GHL team, I wouldn't want to lose my entire team for a good portion of the season every year and players shouldn't be getting 2 games a day as a work around as that would exhaust them. Also, how would I know my players aren't going to end up briefly play for a rival who decides that my players should play in a way that increases the chance of injury?

 

It could be done like another management game I play. In this regard, only managers that subscribe to the Patreon might be able to manage, and all international games have zero impact on fitness and don't carry a risk of injury. Either that, or the off-season is expanded to allow for international games.




#36034 national teams

Posted by ET2018 on July 20, 2018 - 02:47 PM

I would like to see national teams implemented as well, and I think thre's several ways to go about that. Definitely something that would make things more exciting.




#35973 How do Computers actually decide when to accept trades?

Posted by ET2018 on July 17, 2018 - 09:24 PM

Computer trades are hard to do. It takes luck or for some people, knowing certain loopholes to exploit. It's evaluated cosntantly I believe, so hopefully those loopholes have been closed.




#35972 Adam Gundersson cheating

Posted by ET2018 on July 17, 2018 - 09:22 PM

I know you have your suspicions as many of the managers do, but I am Ricky Jones. I have never met, dealt, or even messaged this Adam character. And assuming from Anders in this post, he said he banned all accounts from that IP, so he is also most likely keeping an eye on all the IPs. This was an honest mistake even though it looks like common sense. I have seen other managers in Howitzer Bronze and Silver do this type of thing and in my short time and in Howitzer I was led to believe it was okay to do so because none of them got put onto forums or have been suspended. I made a mistake. I want to get back in the game as I have spent the past day reflecting upon my actions and how stupid they look now and I have also been reading up on the rules and regulations of the game. I do not want to be banned from the Game since I love the game and its intentions even though I have already violated one of the major rules. Once again, I apologize for my actions; I would also like to ask for forgiveness. I know it will take some managers more time than others because they might have had to deal with various other cheaters in the past and cheating isn't a very quick thing to get over.  I hope all of you can forgive me one day. I will love to get back into the game. I will take my time finishing my report on how to play the game before re-entering back into the Game, so I wont break any rules in the future. I hope many of you can understand. I sincerely apologize to any managers I have discouraged from playing the game, enjoying the game, and from all of those who have been pissed at my actions.Thank you.

 

If other managers cheat, it doesn't give you the right to do that. Instead, report them. What made you think offering a team a deal and then taking over that team to accept it wasn't cheating in the slightest? Common sense isn't so common I guess.




#35850 Mascot issue / Solutions

Posted by ET2018 on July 10, 2018 - 09:19 AM

I was going to make the "upload your own logo" suggestion a while ago, but then realized that would be going down a risky path.  I still think it's a good idea.  Personally, there is literally nothing in the world that would offend me, but am also sensitive to the fact that others could be uncomfortable over various images.  We would need a way to monitor it and keep the site family friendly and/or safe for work use... if that's even possible.

 

Yeah, if it's a free for all, people will definitely choose to upload questionable images. I'm sure someone will use a Nazi symbol or a Pepe frog for shock value.




#35848 Important! Where did all the mascots go?

Posted by ET2018 on July 10, 2018 - 09:03 AM

Ah should have posted here :)

 

Is there anyway to just let us upload our own?  

 

Storage is an issue, people using pictures instead of actual mascot or badge likely would too but would give a bit more freedom to do what they like with their team.  Likely would take a bit of doing as well.  Just spitballing it out there :)

 

I could finally put CCCP lettering on my jersey then! :P
