    This would improve the free agency for sure! I will add this to the future backlog. It's coming real soon. The new scouting feature is actually finished and I'm making some additional bug fixes and improvements. Couldn't make the release as promised in January but expect this in the beginning of February.

    I'd love a targeting option. For instance, we already have Left Wing Lock, why not have a target for certain player, etc. I also wish we could differentiate between lines the tactic they use. Some I want to be assholes, others I want to only take a punch and walk away. Having everyone on the team with the same tactic takes away the point of having different lines. But realize I am nitpicking at this point! But there are teams where all I really care about is hurting them as much as possible no matter the final score, haha. Just give us THAT option and I'll be happy!

    We are the Lords of the Overtime! We are huffing and puffing and always find ourselves in an uphill battle, and if we don't lose in regulation time, then comes the lucky escape! I have a suspicion that there will be no lucky escape against the Sebastian Storm. They have a superior squad, and Dave "granpubah" Calloway is a very experienced manager with great tactical skill. I have learnt a lot about the game's tactical aspects just watching his team, and analyzing our battles. My team started the career in the LIHL, the Storm is a well settled SHL team, so it will be a great challenge. Smashvilles4Real is going to travel to the Knights, they have a terrific team, so Smash need to dig deep if they want to steal some points!:) The Knights offered me Dawkins in a trade, and I feel some regret because I rejected the offer. That's an interesting trade: From Knights (SHL) to Twisters (BHL) SHL level 1st round pick SHL level 2nd round pick SHL level 2nd round pick From Twisters to Knights CHL level 1st round pick CHL level 2nd round pick CHL level 1st round pick BHL level 2nd round pick J. Marquardt (C) 31, years enforcer overall rating 71.

    Cage trash talk

    Truth be told I was going to trade Lang either this season or next. The core of my skilled forward group is almost all 30+ right now and he was the best trade piece I had to address it. While I could have asked for Lamoureau or Chene in return, as I would have wanted a center back if I got a player, I wanted to go the more diverse route that gave me more options. I have Grimard at where Lang was at S1 with a, for the moment, better team in front of him than Lang did during S1. I'm not expecting quite the same miracle play from Grimard like I got from Lang as the league is better as well but I am hoping to get something between last season and the season before in terms of performance from Grimard. If he gets off to a good start I should be fine relative to my expectations. If he doesn't, this could be a difficult season. While the picks I got for Lang don't add up to Lamoureau or Chene themselves the loss in the performance from not having Lang should take me lower in the standings which should improve my own draft picks. I'm hoping to pick around 12th in the draft with my pick and no higher than 25th with the other 1st round pick. If the upcoming draft is as good as the last that potentially means I will have a crack at a mid 80s overall player with my first 1st round pick. If I pick below 16th with my pick either I got shafted in the draft order or... Well, to be blunt, you all suck. Edit: I joke. If my team does end up in the middle of the playoff bracket I would be amazed at the performance from my team to have done that but I am not expecting that. I wasn't expecting to finish 1st in the conference and 2nd in points overall last season with the ~20th ranked team talent wise either though so who knows? Then again I did try this vaguely similar thing with my other team. It was looking fine with 10 games left in the season and more than 10 points up on the team in 11th place. However the players inexplicably quit playing after a sudden drop in team confidence from blue 'ok' to yellow 'concerned' after losing to a top team in a fairly respectable manner. The prior 3 games were all wins, with one being against another one of the better teams in the league, and my team had a positive record over the last 10 games, including those 3 wins. Yet for some reason the game said, "Nope, screw you" and I said "ok" as nothing I did changed anything. Granted, that team I intentionally built flawed from the outset with no proper playmakers what so ever and I went rather cheap on a few fill in players as well. However, after starting off very poorly I did actually sign a playmaker from FA and my team was above .500 from that point on until the final 10 games of the season where the players altogether stopped playing. Such is how it is. It actually doesn't bother me that much as I get to play a few players on my main roster this season that I really like and couldn't play in the SHL.

    OK, so there's a few interesting storylines heading into Season 4, but I think the one I am interested in the most is Cedar Rapids. It is fairly well documented that this team always overachieves, but after trading away their stud goalie, Lang, they go into the current season with only a single player rated in the 90s. That player being Vendelin Jaros... a 163 lb. friendly yet nervous winger from the Czech Republic. Overall rating in itself doesn't mean everything, but it does give a clear indication of how well rounded players are. This team could easily finish 1st or 10th. Only time will tell.

    I raise you my Buzzer GHL goaltender - 94 overall. The last loss was against a team near the bottom of the league in every category. He lasted 10 minutes.

    Game mechanics, imho - I've grown used to it. Identical consistency issues with my starters in both Cage and Buzzer. Both 94 overall and both can last only about 3-4 games before they have a monumental collapse and a goalie rating in the red. This sim has a bit of black humour in it when it comes to goaltending .

    Greatest Single Game Performances

    A while ago someone had mentioned a high (non goalie) performance rating and I forget what it was. Today, Terho Huhtala had a performance rating of 88. That might be the highest single game performance I've ever had from a skater position. Interesting story around Huhtala. I acquired him in an early season 2 trade that sent an all star goalie out West in exchange for Huhtala, Amick and a GHL 1st. The jury is still out on whether it was a bad trade or not as I still feel like the goalie doesn't perform up to his rating, but on paper I probably shouldn't have made it. I was hesitant to acquire him given his low Defense and Spirit, but he quickly became one of my top scorers in season 2 and always seemed to score in big moments (I guess that Heroic trait means something afterall). Going into season 3 free agency, one of the games best forwards, Joesph Rackley, became available via relegation. I decided to make a play for him, but needed to clear some cap first. Huhtala became the odd man out and the only option was waivers. I knew it was a giant risk as it left me with a smidge over 10 million to bid. But... I tried to be sneaky about it, thinking that I could put Huhtala on waivers for an hour or so and recall him if I didn't sign Rackley (I actually made a suggestion quite some time ago that players should stay on waivers for at least 2 days before being able to call them back so don't judge me ). But being on the East Coast, USA makes that plan difficult as free agents happen sometime between 2-4am. Well around 1am I threw on on waivers and within 10 minutes someone claimed him. To add insult to injury, my 10.1M bid was not enough to get Rackley as someone else ended up bidding 12+M (thanks Peekaboo... jerk). So my high risk, high reward plan backfired greatly. My offense really struggled last season and that was a big reason as I never managed to replace him. I think the team that put the waiver bid reached out the following day and asked why I had put him on waivers and I explained my reasoning. I'm pretty sure the other manager either offered to remove the claim or offer some type of trade for him, but I refused stating that I knew it was risky and that I should live with it and let it play out. Think he ended up with 7-8 bids and eventually went to another Eastern team. That team ended up relegating last season and I jumped on the chance to get him back... and it's a good thing because over the first 8 games he leads my team in points (7+4) with a +5 and 80 performance. We are currently 5-0-2-1, but would probably be 1-0-2-5 without him. Good times.

    The puck has dropped and the season's underway! The SHL is looking stacked, i don't really like my Whalers chances but we escaped game 1 with a shootout victory over a much better team so anything is possible. Best of luck to everyone!

    Good looking jerseys! :) I think the Big Ducks are going to win this derby, they have an excellent squad, Tyrod has one of the strongest team in this division, and they will have the home advantage. Off course I support for the Whalers, because I see the Ducks are preparing to fly away. :) I think they are not just Big Ducks, they are the Mighty Ducks... :)

    March is almost here but you don’t have to wait much longer to feel the madness. Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2020 will be released on March 9th, 2020 but you can pre-order right now and starting February 26, 2020 you will be able to download playable beta builds all the way up to release! [The content narrative is courtesy of Wolverine Studios] DDS: College Basketball 2020 is our biggest and best effort yet! This season we have completely rebuilt the game on the brand new Alchemium Unlimited platform which has allowed us to deliver the most attractive version of the game yet. As you can see the entire UI has been redeveloped giving you the ability to easily move around your association while giving you access to the impressive amount of data and reports in the game. Above you see the new dashboard screen in the game which gives you access to your roster, schedule, news and important information about your team and upcoming opponent. The top also contains a searchable drop down box with every team and conference – no more hunting through conferences to find a team you are looking for. Just type the name and you’ll find them. With over 350 teams to consider that alone is a huge time saver! With our brand new look comes some great innovations in function as well. One of the biggest parts of the game of course is recruiting. Last season we introduced a quick recruiting feature to try and make it a bit simpler but this year we really honed in on that feature making it THE way you recruit in the game now. A look at our brand new recruiting screen shows you exactly what we have done here to make this area much more user friendly and much faster. You now have hotkeys for not only adding players to your watch and call lists but also for the weekly recruiting functions. Each of those seven drop downs contain different ways you can filter out the recruits to your liking and your choices will remain saved. You also see we’ve added things like color coding interest levels and giving you visual reminders as to things like players you have already hosted for a visit. Our redesign doesn’t just stop at the league screens – we’ve taken the 2D screen to an entire new level with some massive changes there as well. Notice at the bottom of the screen a visual indicator for the fatigue levels of the players on the floor and you can see that all of your coaching options are now available to you at all times without having to switch back and forth between popups. You truly will feel in charge of your squad with all of these options just an easy click away. The in-game experience has never been better! Our efforts didn’t stop at just re-imagining what was already there – no way! Above you see one of the new features debuting this year – the recruit class screen. This gives you a scouting report from the in game media outlet which provides a look for each team at who they have signed, who they are offering scholarships to and who the WSSN feels is interested. It’s a new twist in recruiting and arms you with additional information when making your own recruiting plans. How about the brand new insights screen that gives you some great new stats such as the bubble chart above showing efficiency vs usage for your team vs the rest of your conference. As you can see there are a bunch of different options here including a VERY expanded lineup tracking option all to give you the most information possible in managing your team. It is not just screens, data and functionality that are new to Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2020 either. Thanks to the feedback of our community we’ve incorporated a slew of other changes as well. Here’s a short list of just some of the new features. There are now 353 teams to choose from in the game Play by play logs can be generated for games Scheduling has been redone to allow for 20 game conference schedules Teams get use of an extra scholarship immediately when an underclassmen declares for the draft The Tournament Maker feature has an option to auto generate an entire tournament bracket In game improvements in presentation for things like the selection show and playing out tournament games from the championship tournament The all new Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2020 is calling you, coach.

    Contract & Waivers claim

    It should remove the 1W designation if he moves up a league. Same way that when you promote your 1W players lose the designation.

    Can a simple toggle be implemented that stops automatic goaltender swaps in games? There have been numerous situations where I have been unable to give my starter rest for one game because he continually keeps getting pulled in. This has now happened three games in a row most recently, losing me 9 points. I, and presumably most other managers, would rather take one blowout and get back on track than getting stuck in this cycle or have to obtain a third goaltender for rotation.

    What's everyone think about Ovechkin's chances of catching Gretzky on the all time goals list? Originally a record I thought could never be broken seems to be in reach. Barring injury, he should be around Esposito by end of season. I suppose it depends on if he can play another 4-5 seasons. THEN, alls he needs is another 1400 assists to catch him in points.

    This is what I like to see. Arrogant Lazy Agitator takes a cheap shot and our guy immediately drops the gloves. And if we lose the fight, we take a cheap shot of our own a minute later. In addition to Fair Play tactic, I kinda wish Scrum logic was an option. A) Always play smart B.) Retaliate when necessary C) Get revenge at all costs

    Tales from the front office: DDSPB

    2022-2023 SEASON Current team salary is $126,608,717 and we are $5,264,417 over the cap. There are eight teams with less payroll than us, but only four of them are at or under the cap. There are seventeen teams paying a luxury tax. The Atlanta Hawks have the highest payroll of $206,278,826 and are paying a whopping $58,238,780 in luxury tax. FREE AGENCY My goal during the free agency period was to simply fill out the depth chart. I was looking for solid players that I could trust, so I resigned Baldwin and Connaughton to two year deals. Then I signed two former Bulls, Isaac Humphries and Davis Bertans. Chicago Bulls re-sign Wade Baldwin IV to a 2-year contract worth $4,307,835 Chicago Bulls re-sign Pat Connaughton to a 2-year contract worth $4,949,805 Chicago Bulls sign Isaac Humphries to a 2-year contract worth $3,762,163 Chicago Bulls sign Davis Bertans to a 1-year contract worth $2,234,164 Note: The Memphis Grizzlies signed Tacko Fall to a 2-year contract worth $20,461,034...WOW! Really!?! He has been on my Summer League team a couple of times, but that kind of money is insane. It is no wonder why so many teams are bleeding cash. Who pays $10+ million a year for a player who can't crack the top ten on their depth chart?!? The Memphis Grizzlies, that's who! TRADES Traded SF Otto Porter Jr. and our 2023 1st round pick to the Phoenix Suns for SF Cedi Osman and SF Charles Wallace. This was strictly a cost cutting measure. Porter may be a slightly better player, but he's simply too expensive and Osman can fill his role for far less money. Wallace will help fill the depth chart, but I'll probably assign him to the D-League. The Suns definitely got the better deal, but I wanted to make some cap space and I was willing to give up a 1st round pick to do it. Fans think I'm crazy, but all I have to say about this is..."Back-to-Back!" That usually quiets the naysayers.

What to do about Uncle Drew?" I would love to keep him, but he has already indicated his desire to test the free agent waters at the end of the season. He is only 30 years old, but he is also making over $36M and he is certainly going to want a big pay increase. Then again he has 3 bird years, which allow me to offer him a maximum salary, despite being over the cap. However, if I were to fail to re-sign him, I would absolutely have to re-sign Coby White, but I'm not fully convinced that White can carry the load in Irving's absence and White is going to want 20+ million next year. There is also Rui Hachimura, who I would also like to keep, but he too is going to want around $30 million a year. Also, trading Irving is almost certain to result in a huge backlash from the fans. They would most definitely want my head on a pike after I traded away the teams marque player, coming off back-to-back NBA Titles! Trading Irving for someone like a Luka Doncic, Ja Morant, Ben Simmons, Trae Young or even De'Aaron Fox, might ease the fans pain, but that is a risky proposition. If we don't win a third straight title, I will be forever known as the guy who traded away a potential dynasty. ...if...and this is a big if...If I trade Irving, it will have to be for a player that is similarly skilled, preferably younger, less expensive and with at least two to three years remaining on his contract. Ja Morant isn't an option, because he is also a free agent at the end of the season. Luka Doncic is a possibility, but he is kind of expensive, as is Ben Simmons. De'Aaron Fox is nice player, but hardly a player the fans will accept as a replacement for Irving. That leaves Trae Young. Young is very similarly skilled, maybe better. He is only 24 and he has five years left on his contract. Having said that, I find it hard to believe that the Hawks would part with him. They just re-signed him for $174.4 million, but...they are also drowning in $206 million dollars of salary, so you never know. To pull off a deal like that, I'd certainly have to give a #1 pick, but if that were the case, I wouldn't hesitate. I don't know what I'm going to do, but I do need to make a decision before the season starts. ---------------------

    Good stuff... thanks, Wendel! I am surprised my goalie doesn't bump my ranking down more. He's only better than teams 11-14, but worst out of the Top 10 teams in the East. Let's see how that plays out again. Also hope everything is good with Erzac.

    Great game Smash! That game looked like it got close in the end, but the loss really took it's toll. This resulted in nobody showing up defensively next game (possibly due to hangover). After some nights of heavy drinking back at the duck pond, The Ducks seemed to of finally snap of it, stopping our little tailspin.

    Cage trash talk

    Chene seems like a great player to me. I don't think he'll ever be a top offensive player in the league, but a great defensive asset, which can be just as valuable. He'll rack up the points if paired with the right players. Offensively seems best suited as a Two Way role or Power Forward. Would probably be perfect for a Crash the Net system... and a really good fit for Possession or Dump and Chase. Might lack a bit with Transition Rushes. Definitely a Top 6 forward, especially on a Two Way line. In my opinion, his best value is on the PK where he can play C or F, which is one of the first things I look for when building a team.

    Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, after spending 2 seasons in the SHL i just kept adding and adding more to what i had so my teams teamwork stayed really high with mostly green egos. The (Mighty) Big Ducks won't be heading south this winter, that's for sure. Damn those look really good! That 3rd jersey looks like somebody really ticked off the fisherman(king) from the home/away. Lets hope the fisherman keeps his shirt on against us tonight hahaha.

    Cage trade page

    I should show you the offer I got yesterday. It was worse than that. But would never make a human trade public. Granted it was a counter to an offer of mine, so maybe they just hated mine so bad it was more of an F off response (even though mine was somewhat fair), but still. Makes that Computer trade look like a steal.

    FBPRO98 still plays like NFL

    I'm so happy that somebody took care of making an update for Win 10 x64 systems. The game still rocks. You should definitely install the VPNFL Mod as well, it can be found in the downlaod section.

    It would definitely make free agency less frustrating. It also wouldn't be unrealistic as NHL teams or any team really can place offers to as many players as they want to, regardless of cap. The priority thing would also be nice, so that the players you don't care as much about don't take up that spot.

    Current road map

    I suggested something very similar to this in the Focus Group prior to the reset. I don't think I can link the post here, but here is what I stated. We should allow managers to Bid over the Cap. To clarify what I am suggesting, here is an example: Say a team has $10M in cap space and wants to sign a free agent. There are two free agents they would love to bid on, but they are both asking about $8M. My suggestion would be to allow a team to bid on both players and select a priority (or have priority be based on the amount being offered) sort of like the draft priority function. Bid $8M on Player A (priority 1) Bid $7M on Player B (priority 2) If player A signs with your team, the offer on player B becomes invalid for salary cap reasons. If player A signs with another team, the offer on player B can be processed. I don't have the slightest idea what level of effort this would take, but wondering if something like this would be possible in the future?

    Current road map

    Would it be possible to fix the way that contract offers is set up? Currently, if I make an offer to a player and I only have 4 million in cap space, and I offer him 3 million, I only have 1 million to offer other players. It will not let me make multiple 3 million dollar offers to players. To improve this, I think it would be better to allow it so contract and trade offers don't affect future offers you make to players unless they have agreed to the deal. In the current setup, I usually can only make a couple offers at a time since I'm a cap team, but if this setup was improved, I wouldn't miss out on other players when my first offers get declined. Basically, there wouldn't be a cap on the number of contract offers you could make. Instead, once a player accepts your offer, the other contract offers would get cancelled. Idk if this is easy to reprogram, but it would be a lot less frustrating since right now I can only make 1 offer and hope that he doesn't decline / I miss out on other options.
