Operation Sports is a pretty popular sports sim forum. You might find some reach there. You could also consider advertising on places like Reddit or other Hockey Sim communities like Eastside Hockey Manager.


In Topic: Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Yes, and I doubt it.  I don't think many are going to look at the current world and decide not to go to the updated one because it's still available, especially if, as you say, some of the current are "beyond screwed" (I assume you're referring to bugs and lacking features, specifically? Because while that's pretty much the case, it's still more than playable).  As I said, if you're given the choice between a free, old version of a game that is not being updated and a low-cost, feature-heavy updated version of that same game, most are at least going to consider the latter, and I highly doubt any that wouldn't would take it if the old version is no longer available.

 

Moreso, it'd be a touch of goodwill towards those of us unable/unwilling to pay for the new release and could be a potential way to keep people around the site while it gets its feet wet.  If the impressions from users are good enough, and payment options are manageable, I could potentially decide to give it a go, personally speaking, but if all I get is a 30-day trial and a really crappy free play option, I'm probably gone completely within a couple days, and I doubt I'm alone.

 

Perhaps I'm wrong though, and that's just me.  :huh:

 

I can't buy your argument if you are going to stamp your feet and threaten to leave while saying there are others.

 

The game will be fine regardless of who decides to pay or leave. Throwing a subtle tantrum just makes you look bad.

Not sure what you are getting at. Are you suggesting the current worlds be kept open and free? That would just eat away from paying subscribers for the new worlds and game re-launch, and that wouldn't be a sound strategy IMO. Some of the game worlds are beyond screwed anyways.

And how often does it happened in GPHM? I have seen many players retiring around 40-45, not so many active older... And that is not that rare age these days. Also we are not talking about NHL level, with 55 OVR the player cannot even play in LIHL and trust me, there are hockey players in age 45-50 that still want to play, but they are in local semi-pro leagues most of us never heard of. 

 

The average NHL retirement age is 37. For some game worlds like Lumber, the average retirement age is closer to 40 or 41. I just think it can be toned down a bit.

What do you mean by unrealistic? 49yo players exist and were playing in the past for much higher leagues than what 55 OVR can pley here. 

 

For proof I need just one word - Chelios. 

 

Even if not resigned, he might not retire yet - I think the retirement is random in here and does not really matter if the player is signed or FA. 

 

Yes...but how often does it happen? Especially in the modern era. I just think it's a bit silly.
