  1. Does anyone know when exactly a scouting assignment is completed? Under the status of the assignment it has expected finish but does that mean that the scouting assignment can run beyond when it was expected to be completed?
  2. With player roles, line pairings and line focus I find a lot of it is just trial and error in seeking out what works. Sometimes certain players work well together that you would not normally expect. My top defensive pairing on my GHL team is a 92 overall stay-at-home defenseman paired with a 84 overall offensive defenseman. Together they have 75 and 76 performance rating and the 84 overall offensive defenseman has 24 points in 35 games (23 of which at even strength). It's just about finding what players complement each other to work best as a line. I have their defensive pairing set to dynamic.
  3. Prospect Goaltender Charles-E.D-Champagne is on the trade block. 19 years old, 84 overall. Looking for a GHL 1st round pick in return Wick
  4. Well hopefully it doesn't come to you leaving the game. I'm sure there is a way for it to be sorted so you aren't screwed over by these circumstances.
  5. Giggled a little bit seeing your display picture in relation to your post. That's a tough break. I reckon probably the best thing for you situation would be to either use him this season to help your promotion effort if you're outside of the GHL and then at the end of the season offer him a contract with the added cap flexibility after it adjusts to your promotion. Otherwise you'll have to flip him to try and recoup the assets you gave up for him.
  6. It's really positive to see that the SHL in Buzzer is really active this season. Hoping the GHL can follow suit a bit. Good luck this season guys! Wick
  7. I love this game so I don't want to rag on it too much. But it seems a little baffling that one of the key pillars of the allure of this game is supposed to be "love for stats" as stated on the home page and yet we don't have league player stats for the playoffs! On top of that, something I have previously brought up, if you look at the team history page not a single manager can decipher where a team finished in the playoffs based on the current description of where they finished in the playoffs. While implementing a player statistics page for playoffs may be a large amount of work to include surely just changing the phrasing of "playoff 2" or "playoff 3" to "round one exit", "round two exit", "lost in GHL Cup finals" would not be that hard to adjust. That being said, still love the amazing achievement Anders has done with creating this game. I just feel like some of the smaller things are getting overlooked in favour of larger projects that are continually pushed back because of the scale of work required to complete them.
  8. If a player has already signed a contract extension and they are traded does that extension stay in effect or is it cancelled?
  9. How'd the season turn out for you guys? My goal was to make the playoffs this first season in the GHL. Finished 6th so I've got a first round matchup against Hazard Blizzard. Went 2-1-0-1 against them on the season, but he added Keller from Natashquan on the backend so it's going to be competitive. Regardless of how this season turns out it'll be good playoff experience for my young roster. Hoping that is actually a factor and not just something we've all just convinced ourselves of otherwise it's probably better to land outside the playoffs unless you have an actual chance of winning... That's a discussion for another day though, how was everyone's season?
  10. Good to have another active manager back. What's your team?
  11. Yeah there is a definite issue with the development screen. The career graphs a really messed up as well. I didn't even both scouting last seasons draft since there was no accurate data for their age 15 season. This happened in the last version as well and Anders never really got on top of it.
  12. Just over 10 games into the season and I'm pretty happy with how my team is performing in the GHL so far. I've had to do a little bit of juggling while trying to find a suitable left winger for my top line. Besides that my center depth is looking strong and my top 6 is driving the bus offensively. Biggest signs of youth with my team is coming on the backend with my D-core. Performance wise I only have two defenseman in the green. I've got a very curious case in my defenseman Cussons. He's been my lowest rated defenseman the last three seasons (currently only 82 overall) but has been consistently one of my best performing defenseman. He was absurdly almost a point a game defenseman in his 20 game GHL stint at the end of season 4 when my team was last place in the GHL, then put up 60 points in 80 games in the SHL last season. He's currently playing at a 75 performance rating in the GHL. I don't think I've ever had a player like him in that he's so average ability wise but performs so well. How's it going for everyone else?
  13. Started my rebuild in the GHL, demoting and promoting twice while amassing assets. I brainstormed a couple different ways I could rebuild or reconstruct the team when I came back to the game in season two. My impression was that if I was patient enough and executed it properly a four season rebuild was the way to go. Ended up with two first overall picks from promoting and in trading away all my GHL picks I managed to accumulate about 25 draft picks over the four drafts. I honestly have far more respect and impressed by the feat of bringing up a team from the LIHL to the GHL in five seasons than I do the rebuild I did over the last four. Any manager can amass assets, pulling it off requires hitting on your picks but if you put any good measure of time into scouting you can likely do that. It's a whole other level of managing to continually promote season after season, hats off to you Alex.
  14. So far Buzzer hasn't gained the same traction as Cage for game world communication but hopefully it'll start to turn. I'm back up in the GHL now. Coming out of my four season rebuild and hopefully ready to compete. I've got my stretch goal for this season being the playoffs but with such a young roster I don't think it's out of the question that my team under performs to my expectations. I've got the core of my team constructed now. When the new season starts I'll have nine players below the age of 22 that are over 87 overall, four of which are above 90 overall. I'll be looking to fill out the edges of my roster in free agency and then continue to build through the draft over the next few seasons to hopefully build a roster that can consistently contend for a title.
  15. In fairness if majority of the league uses puck possession then wouldn't adopting the spread tactic and assembling a roster of fast and physical players be a competitive advantage that is readily available?
