    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.

    I'm done.

    Done everything possible, and was getting a little bored anyways.
    Who knows maybe I will revisit in a couple years.
    Been a blast. Thx for the work.

    The whole game has a more euro theme to it, like the relegation/promotion system. I assume it stems from the games creators not being North American.

    Just a quick update...this goalie has played 18 straight games and is just in the tired blue category! Zero impacts on performance or fatigue. This goalie also has a 99 endurance rating (along with 98+ in other ratings). I really can't wait for the reset, ridiculous nonsense like this will hopefully be FAR LESS common. It's quite sad a player would willling exploit a cheap loophole like this for his own gain, and just goes to show what types of people free management sim games sometimes attract...I wish that wasn't the case, but there's always a jerk that ruins the fun for everyone else.

    I've found that it's gotten a million times harder to make a move within the last couple seasons. I think it is due to the anticipation of the upcoming release as people have no reason to move their players for future potential as you should be in win now mode. But I do agree that Fishbowl has less human interaction than other worlds and it is making me consider a switch to Biscuit when the update is released.

    We will take second look at this. We agree a tired goalie should perform worse.

    I totally agree. Once a goalie hits "tired" there should be noticeable effects in performance on a consistent basis.

    EDIT by Anders August 7, 2018
    I have now finally finished a new blog post that will hopefully shed some light over the upcoming release this fall. 
    The blog post is divided into two parts:
    Part 1 - The features
    Part 2 - The business
    And here's a sneak peak of the new design (work in progress). (Also available in the blog post)

    Hi all of you!

    Right now we are a bit quiet here on the forums and in general.

    That’s because we working with a lot of things in the backgrounds. Not generally things you notice in game but performance and future plans are in the making.

    We recently received some new hardware so the game will run smoother/faster and more stable.

    We are reading as much reports and suggestions as possible. Because we want your opinion in developing.

    Keep enjoying the game and be fair and nice to eachother!

    Congratulations on the Cup!
    It was well-deserved, although I had hopes I could sneak a win in Game 3. However I think I lost it in Game 1.
    Good luck next season, let's hope it will spectacular for all of us!
    This is a great game.

    Hey IneffableLeafs...that was remarkable how accurate you were with your predictions! We were very fortunate that your Finals prediction was just slightly off as it did come down to a game 3 that the Hooligans fell behind 2-0 early in the first period. Keep up the good work all! Great season, Hawkeye! Good luck with the draft, all!

    Mickg34 reacted to granpubah in Affiliate hoarding.   
    I just took a look at the top team in GHL Fishbowl  and Mike Grubb deserves a major shout out.   He has 6 players assigned to his affiliates and one of those is 35 yrs old.   I'm not suggesting that all GHL level teams should only carry 6 affiliate players but Mike's team shows that teams do not have to hoard to be successful.   A limit either in dollars or in number of players is fair and necessary.

    1. Horn Lake
    2. Larson
    3. Hawkeye
    4. Wildwood

    6. Sellwood
    7. Urbancrest

    As for the playoffs, I think Hawkeye will take it over Horn Lake in the finals. No one will go down in the relegation playoffs.
    The top 5, as I've called them the past few seasons (Larson, Hawkeye, Horn Lake, Wildwood, and Cuba City) are all stacked, and experienced. They shouldn't be displaced at the top. If they are, they shouldn't miss the playoffs.
    Last season, Urbancrest was pretty much the 2016-17 Toronto Maple Leafs, unexpectedly finishing 2nd with Bonnier (Matthews) leading the team in goals, and some excellent goalkeeping from McCready (Andersen). I wouldn't expect them to miss the playoffs.
    Sellwood has a lot of tall, strong players, and they are very underrated. I have them finishing 6th.
    Me finishing 8th may be a stretch. I think 6th to 8th will be very close, with teams missing the postseason by 3-6 points.
    Pinewood and Wolfe are both good on paper, but time will tell if they can realize their potential.
    Cedar Rapids is regressing, and Wynyard shouldn't finish in the playoffs despite a high power ranking. A lack of veterans will be their Achilles heel. 
    Jolly should finish dead last, by far, while the remaining teams will likely be scrapping it out to avoid 15th.

    Breakout Player of the Year Candidates (Guys I think will break out)
    Joen Jacobsen (Horn Lake) - I'm expecting 50-60 points
    Hanus Kubacky (Wynyard) - Probably 45+ points
    Espen William Renshaw (Wildwood) - Despite putting up 17 goals and 44 points, I think he can go 30-30 and 60 points.
    Emeric Dagneault-Laprise (Larson) - In his first full season, I won't consider him a rookie, but the sky's the limit on a stacked team.
    Please don't slam me over this, these are my honest predictions.

    Here, I had some free time so I decided to once again do the Fishbowl Power Rankings for this new season.The formula is the same for total overall average as past season (offensive players + 2 * defensive players + best goaltender)/25. Rather than just chose the top players from each team, I selected players in order as your regular lineup or a swap of players if there is a stronger injured player and then filled any remaining holes with the top scratched/affiliated players. I've also done an average for height (in cm as it's easier) excluding goalies as I was curious.

    How is it that players who's status shows them as "Exhausted" still produce at an acceptable level? I've seen this especially with goalies as they continue to post shutouts with over 30 saves. Does this even affect performance?

    Just wanted to provide an update and say that this is still a ridiculously annoying issue. I just lost 5-0 against an exhausted goalie that performed at a 92 in the BHL. I guess taking a nap in front of the goal is a more effective strategy than rotating goalies and making sure they're active and healthy. Below is a link to an image to show this.
