    From what I understand, the game would practically reset in every way. We would all choose new teams, and start over. I think this will likely happen.
     
    However Devs, I agree that in the event of a full reset, it would be great to have some kind of win loss record of what we accomplished in the old game, just for the sake of not deleting what we've done.

    Just to calm the situation and give some info!
     
    We will soon announce some big news about the game here in the forums. We apologize for the late answers and feedback to everyone but here in Sweden we do have holidays and vacation right now which make everything going a bit slower than usual.
     
    Have patience a couple of more days and everyone should be getting all info needed.
     
    Keep enjoying the game and community while waiting.

    Actually, no.  Certain topics were voted on.  There was never a vote for this topic, it was more of a discussion.  Anders is simply asking for opinions to determine what is in the best interest of the game long-term.  Nothing has been decided yet.  When information is available, Anders and the mods will notify everyone.
     
    I have no stake in this whatsoever, just figured I'd share these facts to avoid the back and forth that has been happening.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for all the work being done on this and I really look forward to seeing the results.
    I don't have a championship to my name, but I am proud to have taken my Howitzer Queenston Wolverines from 11th in the standings to IHL promotion in about 40 games, and my Fishbowl Duffield Desperados are on track to improve from ninth place to IHL promotion in my first full season.
     
    Maybe a little permanent note on my record: Good at making bad teams not quite so bad!

    Oh I'm sorry Haradrim, let me me just change my wording then and use yours. With how the game is setup now, how are the all star accounts not us giving donations? The people who give these donations don't make any decisions so it's not "two-tiered" we are just given the opportunity to join a focus group and vote on things that ultimately just help Anders & co. make decisions but are still all theirs. We have no more say then you do. The reality is that this is the world we live in where in takes money to get things done. Do you think Anders should spend money out of his own pocket for getting new servers for the game to run on only for the simple reason of making sure no ones feelings get hurt cause you might think your voice isn't heard compared to those who support the game? He still listens to everyone anyways. The only thing the supporting does is give him a group of people from the community in which he has no prior knowledge of, that he can say are serious about the game and committed to it's development without question. It doesn't mean you or others who don't support or donate don't take it seriously as well but given the idea is to grow the community, getting votes from that many people, which is only going to grow, is counter productive. We would still be voting now if that was the case! This whole sense of entitlement just because you show up and play the game which is free (he never made anyone pay for anything) is absolutely ridiculous. Forget I joined in 2015. Forget I've played 3141 games. I SUPPORT 2 TEAMS. Now by your logic that would imply that i should have more say then anyone especially given I have no knowledge of anyone else who supports more than one team, but guess what? You would be wrong. I have wanted live games since day 1. I want updates to happen faster and more frequently and anyone can easily figure out that with donations, Anders can spend more time on the development of this game. This mentality that you and some others have though where you are completely self-driven is in fact toxic to the game because it creates a hostile community like it is right now. I mean maybe you can't tell but I'm livid right now because I want to help the game and know the focus group doesn't even decide anything all the while you feel you should be heard just the same all while making no attempt at even trying to hide the fact that you just care about your vision of the game and not anyone else's (unless they agree with you). How is it supposed to make someone like me feel who does donate when you and others come on to the forums and say it doesn't or shouldn't matter? I am deeply offended and pissed off at that notion when I'm contributing to progress. Plus maybe you've forgotten but there's a forum called "Suggestions".... Now if that's not good enough for you, then guess what? ANYONE CAN BECOME A SUPPORTER. So like I said before, you wanna vote (with still no guarantee it will matter, cause guess what? I voted against a total reset and lost and you don't hear me b*tching about it) then go and donate. It's as simple as that.

    I don't think you really understand the question and the principle. It is not a matter of being cheap and, as for me, I would be ok wherever Anders chooses to take the game. It is however worrying to legitimize being part of the decision through money. True, this is the world we live in, but it doesn't mean being so ready to appalud it as you seem to be. 
     
    For the financial side, the game could be helped through donations and that way it could survive as an equal community as it does happen in some communities on the net. Keep in mind that the amount one pays for the game is - in terms of affordability - different from a country to another, so it is unfair not to take that into consideration.
     
    It has always been my impression that the main satisfaction Anders gets out of creating this game is that it could be enjoyed by anyone responsibly on an equal basis. What you support is unfortunately a two-tiered system in which decisions that affect the whole community are reserved for a privileged few. 
     
    So, again: I want everyone to have a vote, not (just) me and not just you.

    yes... and why shouldn't they be? Supporting the game enables it to move forward and if you aren't willing to pay a very small price to aid in the development then why do you feel you should have just as much say as those who do? The people who are willing to spend a few bucks a month are the ones that are helping these updates come to fruition which all of you who don't support the game, still reap the benefits of the updates regardless. Plus given every topic as far as updates are voted on by the group of supporters, it is still fair to all in the long run and I still say that even though certain votes I've made myself were not the majority and lost and yet it is no problem for me based on one simple thing: Anders and staff have done an amazing job thus far even though there's still lots of room for improvement. So let me leave you with a little reminder; they didn't need to include anyone in their decisions and yet they did and given that the all star accounts offer no perks in game other than names and numbers which don't affect gameplay, is it really that crazy that the people who are willing to pay a few bucks to make the game better for everyone are the ones used to aid them in making the best decisions for everyone??

    I made similar suggestions in the thread but there wasn't much discussion about it. I think it will ultimately come down to how much time Anders and co. have as it doesn't seem to be a priority.

    Jack Reacher reacted to Eric Welsh in Adding coaches to the game?   
    Just a thought, but this could add some good depth to the game.
     
    Instead of setting up the tactics like we do now, how about hiring a coach who is known to run a specific system.
    If you want to run a defence-first trap-style team, hire some kind of fictional Ken Hitchcock. Have fictional bench bosses to represent each of the tactics that exist now.
    Imagine re-creating some kind of Broad Street Bullies scenario where your roster is populated with tough players and you have a coach who favours intimidation?
    Like you match your players to your systems now, you would sign players to run the system your coach prefers. If you don't, he may not give proper ice time to a certain player, or may even have the authority to sit that player out.
     
    And that player would then demand a trade!
     
    Like players, you could have upwardly mobile coaches who refuse to re-up their contract after a successful season.
     
    You could integrate coaches with the existing 'traits' system. Have coaches who clash with lazy or arrogant players. Coaches who are challenged by the idea of motivating lazy players. Coaches who have a calming influence on nervous or anxious players and coaches who push those same players into mental-breakdown territory.
     
    Loving or hating the coach could add another reason for a player to sign or not sign with your team.
     
    The coach could also factor into a team's reputation.

    Definitely a good idea, Eric!  Coaches have been suggested before, along with other staff like Scouts.  There is no ETA to implement these into the game, but I know Anders and Tobias have it on their list.

    To add to the question, if the Game Worlds are reset, can the managers that won the Championships get like a little notice on their manager page. I was thinking like right under the experience bar. It could say like:
     
    Manager First Name
    Manager Last Name
    Manager no.
    Nationality:

    Record: 0-0-0-0

    And after every Cup win a cup gets added so the hard work a manager has put into the previous seasons doesn't get forgotten. It's just a suggestion. Also, thank you to all the moderators as well as Anders for working soo hard on creating a more competitive and friendly environment as well as upgrading this game so that it can reach its full potential. Very thankful guys, keep up the great work!

    Most votes are in favour of a complete reset in order to finally fix the issue of nearly all teams being built out of all stars considering their league. With player development finally (hopefully) fixed and this big update coming out, the consensus is that the update would be a good time to do it.

    I hate my team. LOL. I thought the year would go great since I got some of my key veterans returning, but all it did was just sink me in 16th early on. It took me 10 games to actually get out of 16th only to be stuck in 15th for 5-8 games. I stayed mediocre for the rest of the season then my team finally woke up but it was too late. I made a playoff push and on the last day of games, I beat my opponent 5-2, which I thought would seal my playoff hopes, but no I lost out the #8 seed to another team that had a goal differential of +4 and I had +3. It was quite disappointing and quite upsetting since this was my second time of not making playoffs in franchise history. I just wanted to share my story...BE Prepared no matter how good you think your team is! Good Luck to all teams in playoffs and everyone BE PREPARED, I WILL BE BACK! lol
