#36956 Marketing/advertise and other stuff

Posted by Red Fox on September 17, 2018 - 04:31 PM

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.

#36870 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by Red Fox on September 04, 2018 - 11:47 AM

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.

You said your last message would be your final communication...

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 Red Fox 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 Red Fox on July 29, 2018 - 04:46 PM



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.

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 Red Fox 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 Red Fox 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.
