    Glawing reacted to Paul T in How much do you think about your team away from GPHM?   
    There are times when I think about the game quite a bit and others where I am just buried with real life that I can't.  Probably a bit less obsessive than I used to be when I first started.  For me, I check in once a day at the very least at 1pm EST to check scores (and I am interested in scores around the league even down to the SHL level, not just my own).  I don't read the assistant reports much anymore, unless a specific player is not performing well and I'm trying to figure out why/test new things.  Early in the season I will look for a trade here and there.  Where I spend the majority of my time is scouting the draft and for free agency... and that's more for fun than strategy.  Early on, my decisions were more calculated and was trying to find the perfect formula for tactics, players, roles, etc.  That took a lot of time.  Nowadays, I manage more off emotion and try to have fun with the game.  I've realized that there is a lot of randomness to it all, as there should be, so I get pumped after wins and when I lose, I say "oh well" and move on.  Don't really try to justify things with ratings and formulas, etc.  As you said, it's a nice release from the stress of real life, so I try to balance wanting to win with just having fun with it all.

    Yes, it has sneaked into my thoughts every now and then. Walking the dog is the most common time when I find myself sorting out future plans for my team.

    Putting this question out there to see what other managers perspective is. I find this game a good release from work, studies and the general nuances of day to day life. With how much planning ahead I do with my team and in some regards I go a bit overboard with the notes I have on my team and others in the league, I find myself thinking about the game a lot. 

    Anyone else find this game has weaseled its way into your stream of day dreaming? For what it's worth I am in my third season of a rebuild so much of how I'm playing this game right now is geared towards the future which would lend itself to pondering potential outcomes. But just curious on how immersed others get in their roster building.

    Hi!
     
    Thanks for reporting!
     
    This is an issue we are aware of. This is from the old game we’re we only had one conference. We will of course sort it but it’s alittle bigger bug to solve.
     
    We will announce when it’s fixed.

    Glawing got a reaction from Deadwing in [SOLVED] Jersey customization - again   
    Hi!
     
    We are aware of this issue. Plan was to lock jersey customization after a while because we didn’t want managers to change jersey all the time. We thought it was better if you could recognize the team by its colors.
     
    But we listen to you all and decided not to lock it because you really like it and we do also. But when stuff like this happens we do not prioritize this over regular game performance.
     
    We have some issues at the moments which we need to adress first. But we will fix this and I also like the idea with saving multipel jerseys for home/away etc.

    Hi!
     
    Really good suggestions! We are reading this carefully and will try to make the game more live of course. We have plans to extend the experience for more recognition when winning and player trophies and such. Even an "all star game" are things we look at.
     
    About play by play there is a bit more into it and we are looking how to implement such a thing. We have heard rumours that if it's not good it could ruin the game so we want to make it as good as possible from the start. Can't promise anything right now. A lot of focus right now is to fix minor bugs and help new managers joining the game because we get more and more coming everyday.
     
    Hope that satisfied a bit?! 
     
    We are listening to all your suggestions and we together will make this the best manager game!
     
    PS. About the interview thing, if anyone want to be our official ingame reporter with interviews with managers and stuff. Feel free to take the role as "Game Plan Hockey Managers Reporter" Could make a new section here on the forum if anyone up for it?! DS.

    Glawing reacted to Paul T in Message Reply/Delete buttons   
    Minor suggestion, but can the Reply and Delete buttons be moved to the top of messages instead of at the very bottom?  I've recently had some lengthy conversations with other managers and after about 8 or so messages you are scrolling down quite a bit to hit reply.  And if you're using a phone, forget it.

    That’s correct we don’t have a free option after your free 30 days trial. I’m sorry you can’t continue to play but we thought we put a fairly reasonable price to play.
     
    Hope you change your mind and come back!

    This isn't so much my problem, but another teams problem.
     
    In attack, the Glenmont Jaguars have earned a promotion through the playoffs but have not yet switched their LIHL picks to IHL picks. Considering the GHL and SHL draft rounds have already come and gone, it seems like a bug has prevented the switch otherwise the pick switch seems super delayed.

    Lately, I've noticed multiple "stealth patches". An update happens with clear improvements to the interface, yet it's not mentioned anywhere. I'd like to see the changelog brought back to life with information given what has been done. This should be a far higher priority now than ever since everybody is paying to play.

    Glawing reacted to Deadwing in A Question about Focus Assignements   
    It's a lot of trial and error. There are no definitive help files, just general guides and they're under construction as a result of 2.0 launch. Every manager wants their team to play their own way and be successful, and it's absolutely possible, but may take a few seasons to build up to what you want it to be.
     
    Think of your grand vision. How do you want your team to play? Then start building toward that. It can be very frustrating and downright depressing, but when things begin to click, it's better than mediocre sex.
