  1. Man, I took an Attack to team to experiment and going back and forth for 2 or 3 seasons is like best thing you can do in longterm. Right now, top prospects on Attack are insane, 94 rated defender and some brilliant 88-89 rated guys with great skills and perks. First of all, all your rookies have 3 years contract where you are not in danger of losing them. You relegate and most likely you will promote again, gaining another generational talent, if lucky with prospects. Honestly, why would any SHL team trade their best asset even for 85+ rated players is beyond reason? Those players will help you get back to GHL and for what? Only thing that matters if you return to GHL is to get that bloody first 1-4 pick. Honestly, I would ban trading in between leagues and furthermore I would just ban trading SHL picks due to their huge cinderella type value they have.

    Here, I talked to assistant to clear some things. IP: Hi mate, lets talk about the game yesterday. And some other reports from last week. A: Ok. IP: We won 5-2 yesterday. A: Yes. IP: Lets discuss your report. A: Ok. IP: Team showed no signs of underestimating our opponent. A: No, they didn't. They went in the game fierce and furious. IP: But the team captains failed to prepare the team on our opponent? A: Well, yes... IP: How so? A: I don't know... maybe they didn't prepare... uhm... maybe they didn't motivate players enough. IP: Lets talk about Hoglund. 3 points for 6 minutes of ice time. Awesome. A: Yeah, but he wasn't quite happy with his performance. His confidence is dented and he is crying in locker room now. IP: How so? A: He had 0 hits and 0 takeaways. IP: But he scored a goal and had two assists. A: No hits, no takeaways... IP: Lets talk about Breton. He didn't have best of game, but you said that his bodychecks really boosted his confidence. A: Yeah, but he displayed some very weak bodychecks. IP: Ok? A: Well, he is a player who gets his cofidence boosted only if he does weak bodychecks. IP: Oh, ok. I didn't know that. Lets talk about game against Tomahawks, where our goalie got pulled out in first peried after allowing 4 goals from 7 shots. How did he feel after the game? A: Great, he was very happy with his performance and it took his game to whole another level. IP: I can see that. I see you mentioned that he didn't fit his role good? (Role 30) A: Ah, yes. Well, he is a goalie, but naturally he is soccer goalie and being on the ice really makes it hard for him. IP: Berthellete had a fine game. You mention that he protected the puck really well in the offensive zone. A: Yeah, he was awesome. IP: He also had great checking game. A: Yes, thats what he does. I gave him 80 for his physical performance. IP: But your report states that he failed in physical play getting past the opponent with the puck. A: Yeah, he can't handle the puck. IP: But he protected the puck really well? A: Yeah, when he got the puck he protected him along the boards great, but if he skates with it then he failed. IP: Ok. One more thing comes to mind. A: Yes? IP: You said that Arnesen wasn't affected by fatigue during the game at all. A: Nope, he is incredible. IP: But you said that he had problems with endurance and failed in recovery. Recovery of what? A: I don't know. IP: How he wasn't affected by fatigue if he had problems with endurance? A: Uhm, maybe he was saving himself for last period and then, I don't know, game finished and he realised that he isn't fatigued at all. IP: Ok. Cya tomorrow. A: Bye.

    Paul, yeah... first time this season that my energy line did something :DDD Sry, doesn't feel right Do I need to tell you that my fellow assitant informed me that Hoglund wasn't happy with his game perfomance and that it dented his confidence? The boy surely set his goals high.

    Big game against Leopards today. Last time it was 7-2 for Pauls side, worst defeat in franchise (tho short it is) history. However, many players changed teams from both sides and this will be whole new game... Dragons have streak of 8-1-0-1, while Leopards are at 7-1-2-0 coming from a 6-1 win against Tomahawks. Also, both team are using different styles... a true test for my new tactics

    And the final piece of puzzle for the season is here, goalie. Now we have mighty offense and somewhat shaky defence and decent goalie. Tho current one was surprisingly good. Traded away all my picks, I guess I am way to impatient for that :DDD
  12. That. We really need some detail explanation, I am still trying to understand how things work.

    Now you set an even bigger stage for a shocker
  14. you need more micromanagment... chemistry between players, lines playing different style, etc... as it is now, aside from a tweak or two, once you set your team - not much to do besides trading...
  15. wb and Paul, you should have created Buzzer CHL team, you'd find some GHL Cage competition there
  16. I am pretty sure coding is not that complex. I think endurance doesn't matter at all. I had 40 endurance 86 rated sniper playing great two seasons averaging 19 minutes per game, 2nd line and pp, without even getting blue fit icon. All he got was that remark in assistents report, which probably just reflects on the fact that he has 40 endurance, while at the same time doesn't reflect on his actuall game performance, since he performed great. So, probably just a rating we can ignore, unfortunately.
  17. Also, here is timeline and possibilites if there is no draft switching, that I still find better solution then just stopping picks trade in between leagues. GHL - relegated team: gets top GHL picks, something to rebuild his relegated team upon. Can trade that player up to GHL for players based on clear facts and not on speculation. SHL - promoted team: his GHL pick is worth a ton as soon as season starts, since he can trade him for players to help him stay up. If relegated and not traded, he still got the best player, just not the season before, as it is now. That still sounds better and more fair to me then current system. Maybe I am wrong... I don't know. However, I am pretty sure the way you can get top picks now is wrong 100%
  18. Ok, fair enough, I understand that point. I still think it would be better for them to retain the pick, as they can trade them right away for something to help them battle relegation. However, if draft switching should continue taking place, it definitely needs to be prohibited to trade picks between the league with all stated above. edited: horrible spelling

    So... who are contenders this year? Hawks, Leopards, Cats, Prairie Stars.
  20. Also, one more thing - don't overlook this. There is no way I am trading any of my players at the moment to any of new promoted teams? Why? Becuase I am 99% sure they will get relegated. So, in a way, they can't trade their picks for players that will actually help them stay up. If they would retain their picks, that means they would be able to trade them for 90+ players right now, in a season where they actually need them. Just a thought.
  21. There is actually so much difference between GHL and SHL for example, that restricting any kind of trade in between would actually be best idea. I would restrict pick trading in between leagues anyways, its way too abusable, especially the way it is working now.
  22. To be clear - I didn't post this based on anyone's actions, just the whole logic of it doesn't make sense. Promoted team didn't gain anything much with the first pick in terms of having competetive team for the next season, becuase as things look now (something to adress as well?), it won't save them from relegation. They did gain something longterm, but in my opinion, it should be something relegated team gets anyways. I am just questioning the logic of the rule - I mean... do you guys realise what is happening? People are trading mediocre players for possibly best picks on upcoming draft. As a GHL team with some cap space, I can sign 10+ 85ish rated players on 2w contract and then trading them for SHL picks. I lose absolutely nothing here. Except a day or two to get a contract. So in the end, the GHL team doesn't end short of anything. This is super abusable and still doesn't make any sense to me.
  23. Uhm, whats the logic behind that? Except its super abusable? I am trying to figure out why would that happen? I mean, shouldn't relegated team (when losing his whole team most of the time) have something to be happy about? And also something to build upon in the future? This way most people just quit. Not to mention, how easy is to trade some 2w free agents signed by GHL teams with SHL teams and then hope they get promoted and their picks become crazy worth? What am I missing here?
