  6. Welcome to the WSBA Sim Recap – a weekly blog piece to talk about the latest happenings in the WSBA – the first ever online league run by Wolverine Studios. If you’re looking for all the details on the league or to even join yourself click the button below and check out the league for yourself. Check Out The WSBA Homepage Can Anyone Stop The Bison? Chicago entered the sim with an 8-0 record and continued their unbeaten streak with seven more wins and even more impressive all of those wins were double digit victories. SG Ben Greer has been amazing leading the team with 26.3 PPG but he’s not doing all the heavy lifting. SF Justin Brown has been no slouch himself averaging 20.1 PPG to go with 10.9 RPG, 7.3 APG and 1.9 SPG. As long as these two are healthy I’m not sure anyone can stop the Bison this season. Charlotte Gets A W! Charlotte, on the other hand, entered the sim looking for its first victory and they didn’t wait long – dispatching of the Boston Irish 112-102 – at the beginning of the sim. The Wasps would go on to win one more game but at an overall record now of 2-13 their hopes are clearly of ping pong balls bouncing their way and not of the playoffs. OKC Makes Their Move… While the attention of the league has been focused on Chicago, Oklahoma City has been kicking up some dust in the West. The Twisters are 13-1 themselves and have a big three that would make anyone jealous. PF Shon Roberts currently leads the league in scoring at 29.9 PPG (to go along with his 11.3 RPG, 3.2 BPG and 2.2 SPG) and is possibly the early leader for MVP. The Twisters also rely heavily on PG Shota Sumbatashvili and C Noel Bishop. This overseas dynamic duo from Estonia and Australia respectively provide the perfect compliment to each other and while either one could be a top option on any team here they represent the second and third options in the pecking order which is a fantastic luxury for the Twisters. Could we be heading to an OKC/CHI final? That’s what it looks like after the first two sims. Want To Be Part Of The Fun? The league sims our games live on Twitch every Wednesday night at 7:30 PM EST. Join our Twitch channel and watch the excitement for yourself! Maybe you will even want to join up and be part of the league – we still have open teams to manage.

  7. Welcome to the WSBA Sim Recap – a weekly blog piece to talk about the latest happenings in the WSBA – the first ever online league run by Wolverine Studios. If you’re looking for all the details on the league or to even join yourself click the button below and check out the league for yourself. Visit the official WSBA homepage Two remain unbeaten… There were two teams who survived the first month of the season unbeaten. The Chicago Bison ran all over their opponents to a dominant 8-0 start while the Houston Blast were no slouches in the West running off victories in their first seven games. The keys to victory for both teams lie on opposite ends of the floor. Chicago leads the league in PPG allowed per game with a stingy 93.5 allowed while Houston has been running up the pace and the score on their opponents with an impressive 121.9 PPG scored. These two teams will meet in our next sim in a potential preview of the league finals. Roberts, Riggs honored… Oklahoma City forward Shon Roberts and Dallas guard Jerry Riggs both took home player of the week honors in the first two weeks of the season. Roberts is averaging an impressive 28.3 PPG with 11.0 RPG, 3.9 BPG and 2.7 BPG – he’s a massive force on both ends of the floor early on for the Twisters. Riggs is living up to his “bucket getter” attribute with 31.3 PPG in the early going here including a beautiful 53 point performance in a 129-117 win over Portland. When will Charlotte win? The other big story from the first month of the season is the lone team on the wrong end of the standings as the Charlotte Wasps started off 0-7. Wasps GM AJ Rizzo knew the season would be a challenging one as the Wasps were projected for last place in the East in the season preview guide but an 0-fer start has to be a disappointment still. Charlotte will look to upcoming games against Memphis and at New York (both teams currently sit with two wins) as opportunities for that elusive first win. Catch the action LIVE That’s it for the WSBA recap this week. Be sure to catch the action unfold LIVE every Wednesday night at 7:30PM on our Twitch channel.

  10. The Franchise Hockey Manager series returns for the 2020-21 season with plenty of new additions. A return of the deepest, most authentic hockey strategy gaming experience you can find. Choose one of dozens of leagues around the world and select a team to guide to glory, including a chance at the ultimate prize: FHM7 is licensed by the NHL®, allowing you to take the reins of your favorite franchise to capture the Stanley Cup®. [This press release is made courtesy of OOTP Developments] Take control of a national team and try for international supremacy. Choose a historical game, where you can begin in any year in NHL® history right back to the beginning in 1917. Or if you’d like to create your own customized league, you can do that as well. However you choose to play, you have control of your team and can oversee finances, select strategies, hire your staff, make trades, sign free agents, and draft the newest generation of stars as you try to build a championship team – and then make it into a dynasty. 2D Engine The game simulation has been rebuilt from the ground up, and now shows games in a top-down, fully-animated view that lets you see every second of the action. All new for Franchise Hockey Manager 7: Historical International Tournaments: International games have been added to historical play, so you can control a team in legendary events like the 1972 Summit Series and the Miracle on Ice in 1980. We’ve also added a large number of non-NHL players to the historical database, so if you want to see what the cold war-era NHL would’ve looked like with the stars of the Soviet bloc added, that’s now possible. More Customization for Custom Leagues: Custom league setup much more flexible – you can now add as many leagues as you want, all of them fully customizable. The playoff editor also has a new custom configuration option in addition to the pre-set default systems. Redesigned Scouting System: The scouting interface has been simplified and made a little more visually appealing with the addition of maps showing the coverage your team (and individual scouts) have. Scouting reports have also been changed to provide more useful and relevant information, and Scouting Levels now include an estimate of the player’s likelihood of reaching his potential. Reworked Draft Screen: Mock drafts, a draft review, and scout recommendations have been added. Additionally, we’ve moved the draft dates in modern and custom games – they now occur in early July, as they do in historical, which allows expansion teams to participate in them during their first season. Configurable Historical Evolution: When when you opt to turn on historical editing, you can now specify if you want changes like league foundings/closures, team expansion and deactivation, and rule changes to continue as they did historically or not, in any configuration you want. More Farm Team Control: If you want more control over your farm team, you can now have direct control over their depth charts and staff hiring. Schedule Editing: A long-requested feature, schedules can now be exported for editing, and then re-imported. Waiver and Intraleague Drafts: The beloved Waiver Draft has been added to historical play in the years it existed, along with its predecessor, the Intraleague Draft. Additionally, both are also available as options that can be activated for any other type of league. Other significant changes and additions include: Reworked the news screen to show more headlines and flag personal messages and those which need a reply. Real-life full-career stats are now included on the player screens in historical mode, so you can see if a player is matching his real performance…or cheat a little, if you want to see how a potential draft pick really turns out. A team search tab has been added to the player and staff search. Various international upgrades: national teams run by the user no longer clear rosters after tournaments end, so you don’t need to rebuild them, international staff histories are now recorded, and we’ve made various UI improvements and fixes to get the international screens working a little better. The continue button now alerts to you to upcoming events like drafts and trade deadlines. Database improvements like significantly expanded international stats histories for players, award histories for most leagues, and more The success of a national team now has an effect on the quality of new players generated by that country. Players can now be designated as Untouchable if you don’t want to get trade offers for them, and players on other teams can be flagged as “Not Interested” if you don’t want them to be included in trade offers to you. The Aging attribute had been split into Aging and a new attribute, Development Rate to make our modelling of player career arcs more flexible. Roster AI has received a number of adjustments, mainly in the area of how the AI determines player value; most of these are designed to take advantage of systems (line chemistry, etc.) that didn’t exist when the last major roster AI revision was done. AI teams’ free agent-signing behaviour has also been improved. The player search screen’s filter now allows minimum ratings scores to be included in the filter criteria.-We’ve made some database and player generation changes to significantly reduce the memory usage of long-term leagues, allowing much better long-term game performance for users with limited RAM. Many new things are editable on the player, team, and league screens – contract settings, favourites, foreign player restrictions, among others. Boxscores can now be exported as csv files. The later years of historical player data got a lot of re-work, fixing some inaccuracies and significantly adding to the number of post-2010 players who haven’t made the NHL yet In addition to all of that, there are the usual large variety of smaller and internal changes, tweaks, database changes, interface improvements, and the 20-21 team and player updates!

  14. Earlier this year we embarked on a project which we are calling Featured Leagues here at Wolverine Studios. We know there are a good number of online leagues out there but we wanted a program which highlighted leagues who not only were active and solid leagues but also were committed to keeping their leagues on the latest versions of our games and committed to providing a social presence as well through outlets like Twitch, YouTube and other social channels so that they were really sharing the league with the public. In return we’re happy to highlight what the league is doing and even offer members a special discount in the future. We’re happy to announce two leagues that have promised to fulfill this criteria. The first league is the Weekend Warriors Pro Football (WWPF) league. We are very excited that the WWPF has asked to join this program. The WWPF is one of the most respected Draft Day Sports: Pro Football leagues spanning more then ten years in their sim. As of writing the WWPF does have a few open slots – if you are looking for a top notch football league experience click that link above and join up today! They will be moving to DDS: Pro Football 2021 version very soon. The other league is a venture of our very own – the Wolverine Studios Basketball Association (WSBA). We are going to be running a fictional GM-only style league and we’re going to be broadcasting the sims live on our Twitch channel. The league was just announced this week and we’re taking applications for team ownership. To learn more about the league just click that link and the application to join the league will be there. We are very excited to get this started up for our Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2021 fans! Joining an online league is an exciting way to test your skills against your fellow gamers. Do you have what it takes to compete and be victorious? We hope to see you in our leagues or following them on their social accounts. You can follow the WWPF on Twitter at @WWPFInsider and the brand new WSBA account @WSBAHQ The post New Featured Leagues To Enjoy! appeared first on Wolverine Studios. View the full article
  15. Chris the co-ordinator of GM Games, takes you through the newest presentation in Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2021 (DDSPB 21) Take control of your favorite franchise and lead them to basketball glory with Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2021. With the additions of the “Slybelle Real World Mod (Team Logos, Names)” and the “GM Games – Pro Photo Pack (Player, Draft, Coach, Court Photos)” you’ll be playing a franchise mode full of graphics, realism and life. Mods are here: https://www.wolverinestudios.com/board/viewforum.php?f=328 [This press release is made courtesy of Wolverine Studios] We dug down deep into the AI for this year’s version to make sure that the AI was even smarter when it comes to things like roster building decisions and most importantly trading. We have completely overhauled trading in this year’s game not only to make the AI even more intelligent especially when it comes to valuing and trading draft picks but to make things more user friendly for you as well. You can see that now when going to make a trade you are able to see more detail about the other team in the trade. You can view what stage of build process they are at and what their biggest needs are. Don’t want to wait for trades from the AI? Use the brand new option to immediately shop a chosen player to the AI controlled teams. We even have added an option in the free agency session to replicate sign and trades to bring the realism to an entire new level! A Brand New Look… We didn’t just work under the hood either. Last year’s version saw a massive transformation in the game as we moved it to the Alchemium Unlimited platform. This year we started to show just how powerful this platform can be. DDSPB21 with Slybelle Real World Mod & GM Games Pro Photo Pack We’ve redesigned many of the areas of the game such as the player card above to make the information more vibrant, easier to read and better looking. You also see in that screenshot one of the many other new features we have added this year – player types. Players in DDSPB21 have always been created to be incredibly unique so that the job of building your roster was an exercise in putting together players that fit well as opposed to simply finding the highest rated players there are. Player types now help you to identify with badges players that fit a certain description such as a “bucket getter”.

  18. Football Manager 2021 Mobile will land on the iOS and Android stores on November 24th. To get you fully prepared for another successful season ahead, here are this year’s squad additions. YOUR WORLD JUST GOT BIGGER There are three brand-new nations for you to test your managerial prowess as we welcome Argentina, Mexico and Canada to the Football Manager Mobile series. This means there are new divisions to dominate and a fresh pool of players to scout – unearth the gems hiding in those parts of the world. TOTALLY REVAMPED TACTICS Tactics in FM21 Mobile have been finely tuned so you can get the very best out of your squad. Managers now have more tools to play with including a host of renewed tactical templates as well as brand-new player roles. Simply select a tactical style from pre-sets so you can Gegenpress, Tiki-Taka or Route One your way to glory. Within that tactics, you can now deploy Roaming Playmakers and Inverted Wingers in your team to give you new ways to piece together your tactical masterplan. This revamp also considers set-pieces, which have been re-defined for the FM21 season. Not only can you assign a list of set-piece takers, but you can now dictate player instructions for both defending and attacking dead-ball scenarios. Get your centre-backs and target men in prime positions to meet the ball in dangerous areas at both ends of the pitch or organise intricate short-corner routines to surprise your opponents. BRAND NEW PLAYER DYNAMICS Squad hierarchy and player social groups give you, the manager, the full picture of your team. Understanding squad dynamics is crucial when controlling player morale and building success as a squad. Learn how your players operate and communicate together to create an atmosphere everyone can develop in. This new feature is bolstered by the addition of Club Captains. Now you can assign a captain and vice-captain when you walk into the training ground doors on day one. In FM21 Mobile, like in other iterations of FM, the captain’s role is crucial in maintaining a relationship between you and your players. Get the skipper on your side and the dressing room will be a happier place but upset your captain and your team’s morale may suffer. You cannot afford to get things wrong with the team’s leader. NEW AND IMPROVED INTERACTION You now have far more interaction options, including both conversation topics and answers. You’ll be able to speak to players and the media on a whole host of different subjects, giving you the detail you need to control every moment and make decisions in your club’s best interest. On the other end of these conversations, most commonly, will be players as FM21 has revamped their role in interactions. Players now give far more feedback to the events they experience and will be more vocal – as they are in real life – in reaction to things they admire or are unhappy about. FEEDER CLUBS Existing affiliate links between elite clubs and feeder clubs now allow those managers to send and receive young players on loan to help aid their development while winning valuable points for the feeder team. FM21 Mobile also allows you to create new affiliate links with feeder clubs so you can build your network in order to secure valuable deals. ENHANCED NEWS AND MEDIA News items and media articles are now much more reactive and responsive to you and your club’s movements. You’ll have the ability to comment on what you see too which can come in handy when you have to defend your player’s poor performances and publicly back your squad. FM21 Mobile blurs the lines slightly between the match action and the media reaction. CUSTOMISE PRE-SEASON FM21 Mobile gives you the ability to arrange your own friendlies. This new level of customisation allows you to test your squad against the very best and work on pre-season sharpness. And that’s it, another exciting season of FM21 Mobile awaits with new features that bring you ever closer to the football world you’re creating. Join the conversation about it with the GM Games community… The post Headline Features of Football Manager 2021 Mobile appeared first on GM Games - Sports General Manager Video Games.

    Hi everyone, my name is Chris and I co-ordinate General Manager Games (the sports manager database). It's been a pleasure working with Slybelle to get the mods that bring that NBA immersion. I spent more time than I can count going through and performing visual design tasks for recent photography on coaches, draft picks, courts, and of course all decent NBA players.

  21. Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2021 is just around the corner and, after what feels like an eternity of waiting, Wolverine Studios have dropped a number of exciting new features ahead of the full release date. So how does Wolverine Studios take their basketball simulation game and improve it? As Walt Disney once said, “There is no magic in magic, it’s all in the details.” The same holds true for Wolverine Studios – it’s all in the details. With the additions of the “Slybelle Real World Mod (Team Logos, Names)” and the “GM Games – Pro Photo Pack (Player, Draft, Coach, Court Photos)” you’ll be playing a franchise mode full of graphics, realism and life. Mods are here: https://www.wolverinestudios.com/board/viewforum.php?f=328 Details Matter… Let’s take a look at the player card for example. In order to plus the presentation we’ve completely redone the player and jersey models in this year’s game to make the players more vibrant and come alive better. We also completely changed the header to provide not only a more attractive view but also make the detail a bit easier to read. As for the card itself we’ve totally redone the ratings display and added a brand new player type feature so that you can quickly see with colors and icons who are exceptionally skilled players. The end result – a beautiful and vibrant player card that delivers you the info you need in an attractive and clear manner. DDSPB21 Player Card with Slybelle Mod & GM Games Pro Photo Pack Speaking of redesigns take a look at the new dashboard screen and the new look at your team roster. Replacing simple text we have full color clickable mini cards that have all the info you need on each player. The gain here? You’re able to constantly visualize your players and that’s key. This is just one of the steps we have taken this year to bring your players to life. Not only do they still have their individual play styles that make them unique pieces to your team’s puzzle but we’ve taken steps such as this to really help you to find that attachment to them. They’re not just names and ratings – they’re YOUR players. DDSPB21 Dashboard with Slybelle Real World Mod & GM Games Pro Photo Pack Mod If you’re a veteran of the 2020 version you’ll also notice that the flow has been changed in terms of the links to make more sense. Now your left side contains the league and then team specific links while the top contains information pertaining to your player in the game. It’s little details like this that go a long way in making your experience better. Immersion Is King… One thing that felt important in making you connect with your league is telling the story of other players in the league so we have introduced milestone tracking in this year’s game. The game already contained a rich and deep almanac that you can peruse at your leisure to remember the good old days of the league but we wanted to add something new that connects you with the players and their personal quests to achieve greatness during the course of your league. Not only can you check out these milestones any time you would like but you’ll also get notifications of them while you simulate the league so that you always know when those important milestones have been reached. Speaking of those notifications do you ever feel that while simulating that you’re missing out on too many things? Now you’ll receive notifications specific to your team after each game so you know how your team and top players performed as well as notifications about injuries, trades, special events such as triple doubles and the aforementioned milestones so that you always have your finger on the pulse of the league. DDSPB21 Fast Sim & Toasters with Slybelle Real World Mod & GM Games Pro Photo Pack Mod Making Good Into Great… This year’s version is chalk full of other important improvements such as the major work that went into trading. As you can see we’ve now given you tools to make trading more intuitive for you while at the same time making the already smart AI even smarter. You now get to see what sort of building stage the other teams are in as well as their biggest needs. Don’t want to wait for trade block offers? Add a player to a trade and ask the team for an offer on the spot now. We’ve even added the ability to perform sign and trades during free agency. We’re not only increasing the realism and presentation of the game world but we’re continuing to make it deeper and deeper with new features like these.

  23. Com2uS has announced that it has acquired 100% of the stake in Out of the Park Development (OOTP), a German game company. Founded in 1999, OOTP is a German company that provides PC-based sports management games such as ‘Out of the Park Baseball (OOTP Baseball)’ and’ Franchise Hockey Manager’. ‘OOTP Baseball’ is a management game that has secured the license of MLB, an American professional baseball game, and is currently being serviced through the Steam platform and online downloads. Com2uS is expecting high synergy between the two companies with this acquisition of OOTP. Com2uS, which already has the know-how of global sports licensed games such as MLB, NBA, and KBO, plans to strengthen its competitiveness by adding OOTP’s management genre capabilities. In addition, the company is in a position to successfully lead the global market expansion of OOTP games and mobile version services through organic collaboration. Com2uS has raised its brand status through global business performances in the United States and Europe, as well as a long-established global business network, and will further promote M&A for overseas companies in the future. Markus Heinsohn, CEO of OOTP answers questions about the acquisition: Q: How long do you intend to stay on board before the next project? A: I have absolutely no plans to leave the company anytime soon. It’s my dream job and what I can do best, so why change? Andreas will retire in about 3 years, he’s already a grizzled veteran. Q: I know that COM2US has kinda good in-game graphics in their mobile games, such as MLB 9innings. Can I expect their graphic nohows can be adapted into OOTP pc? A: We do not know yet how the 3D engine of the Com2uS products work, so for the short- & medium-term future, the OOTP 3D engine will stay in place. Q: And do you expect a change in the billing policy to occur? I know that Korean games are very charge-inducing. A: No change here, shop systems will remain the same. Q: Will there be a price increase for the next product? A: I am pretty sure the answer to that is no. We have toyed with that idea in the past, since games have been at the same price for decades while everything else got more expensive, but I think $39.99 is still the sweet-spot for us. Q: I know Com2us has a different league license (eg KBO). So, do you have any plans to make other leagues a reality like MLB? A: Yes, that is the plan. Q: As you know, Korean fans of OOTP have long wanted to translate OOTP into Korean. Is it finally the moment they’ve been waiting for? A: Yes, translation work starts immediately and we hope it’ll be done in time for the OOTP 22 launch. Q: Congrats. What would you anticipate to be the biggest positive impact or difference in the game in 3 years due to this sale? A: Thanks! I think all areas will benefit, as we now have bigger resources and more experience in the background. If I had to guess though, the biggest progress will probably be made with our mobile product(s), as here our experience so far has been quite limited. Q: What does this mean for the development of PT? Will you be drawing on COM2US for development advice, given their track record in running microtransaction-model games? A: They are very happy with PT, but you are right, they have lots of experience with these kind of game modes. We’ll see if that experience can be applied to PT in a meaningful way… I personally expect this to happen more for marketing purposes than the game design itself.
