    koekefix got a reaction from Chris in Discord   
    Hi everyone,
     
    I took the liberty to create a Discord server for GPHM.
     
    What is Discord?
     
    All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life.
     
     
    The app is very easy to use and imho works better than the chat on the forum. So anyone that would like to use it, feel free to download and join our server:
     
     
    Download the app for Android, iOS, Windows and Mac on:
     
    https://discordapp.com/download
     
    and to get direct access to our server:
     
    https://discord.gg/cuxWnNJ
     
     
     
    At the moment I created a chatroom for every gameworld. Feel free to add suggestions :-)
     
    Would be cool if everyone joined!
     
    Cheers,

    koekefix reacted to rainsilent in Player profiles [DONE]   
    Ego - This can be looked at as the general disposition that a player has. It mainly impacts teamwork and how much the team likes to play with each other. You want to have a good mix of the best but don't get too concerned about having a few of the worse ones on your roster. It goes through these ranks from lowest to highest.
    Arrogant, cocky, responsible, friendly, compassionate.
     
    Dirty - This is how dirty a player plays the game. The dirtier a player is willing to play the more they push the boundaries of the rules to gain an advantage. That also mean they are more likely to take penalties, especially majors that aren't fighting majors. It goes through these ranks from lowest to highest.
    Tough, agitator, respectful, gentle.
     
    Leadership - This is a take on how much of a leader presence the player can have in the locker room. This is mostly relevant for whom you want to make captains for your team. This goes through these ranks from lowest to highest.
    Anonymus, modest, respected, role model, motivator, commander, true leader
     
    Big Games - This is a showing of how the player is likely to respond in big moments. The lower the ranking the more likely they are to make mistakes in big moments. It goes through these ranks from lowest to highest.
    Nervous, anxious, stable, determined, heroic.
     
    Ambition - This is a showing of how much interest the player has in the sport and how much they care about how good they are. This is mostly going to be used in conjunction with development to determine how good the player might get. This may also have an impact on how long of a career a player may have. This goes through these ranks from lowest to highest.
    Lazy, half-hearted, enthusiastic, purposeful, ambitious.
     
    Hidden profile:
    There is one hidden profile that used to be known. Talent. It was hidden for obvious reason. Everyone would go after the players with the highest ranking in this category without touching any of the others if at all possible. It made it too easy to go after the players that were most likely to be the best in the game.
     
    The rankings might not be fully accurate but they are to the best of my knowledge. Also, I don't think I did the best job of describing the different profile points so do not hesitate to point out what is missing or may be worth including.

    In this case that isn't likely, tho be since many teams are within 6 million of the salary cap. The only team with plenty of cap space to really use is Ottawa and I don't see them doing much, to be honest. Case in point the Zack Smith, Artem Anisimov trade. It was done to get Ottawa above the cap floor. To boot they are actually paying Anisimov less than they would be paying Zach Smith because half of that cap hit was a contract bonus that took effect July 1st.
     
    All the Pens need to do is get Pettersson resigned and their top 4 is good. They just need to get JJ's cap hit out to likely do that.

    No defensive tactic needs endurance. I'm running spread on the team with the photos above and that is the most demanding defensive tactic and lack of endurance isn't an issue.
     
    No offensive tactic "needs" passing or shooting but you need passing and shooting to some degree to score. It doesn't matter how good your team is defensively you are not going to stay in the GHL with a team with low 80s at best passing and scoring.

    I'm done as well. It's been a nice ride so far. I've lost interest the last 2 seasons. Its probably because the new game was announced way too early and it didn't matter anymore with the current team. We would lose everything and activity was decreasing week after week.
     
    Thanks to Anders, Glawing and the community. Best of luck.

    Thanks for the feedback Glawing. 
    Every reply we received from the makers have started with 'sorry for the lack of communication but we are working hard'. Don't get me wrong, we are all aware of that and we are happy with the hard work. That being said, the lack of interest is because it was announced way too early and managers are not really putting much effort. That and the fact there is no communication unless we complain about it.
     
    Trust me, it's not something I like to do but it's because I care about this game. Otherwise I would have left already. But a teaser or screenshot at least once a month would be nice. Some communication about what's going on and I'm sure everyone would be more interested. Just my 2 cents.

    Yes, you're right. We're getting tired of excuses. And the release was announced too early. But I really thought it would be ready by October. I was wrong. 
     
    So what's happening? Currently I put several hours into the new release every day and things are progressing. The new league structures and playoffs are developed and are being tested out. The design is almost finished for desktops and larger screens. Here's a screenshot: https://cl.ly/13e1bb5fe116
     
    I will from now on provide a screenshot or an update at least once a week up to time of the release. I also recorded a sneak peak on how to customise team jerseys. I posted this in the jersey discussion found here: http://forums.gmgames.org/topic/10046-new-jerseys/?do=findComment&comment=37343
     
    The release is still planned for December but probably not the first week. And as Glawing pointed out the current server will be active until the release is made with the one exception that it will be physically moved last weekend of November. 
     
    So no more excuses from now on =)
