    Fangowolf reacted to GamePlanHockey in Player ratings/skills [DONE]   
    Updated October 28, 2019
     
    ## Player ratings
    The player ratings (or skills) are a measure of how good the player is in the different aspects of the game. The ratings display the player's strengths and weaknesses. The importance of each of the player's ratings vary depending on game situation and chosen tactics. There are 9 different ratings for players and 7 ratings for goalies. Ratings ranks from 40 to 99.
     
    ### Overall
    The overall ratings is a summary of the player's ratings. This summary is never used in any game situation, it's only used as a comparable value. Note that the overall summary is weighted differently depending on the player's position and is not the average of all the player's ratings. 
     
    ### Skating
    The skating rating is a combined value of speed, acceleration and balance. The skating rating of importance in tactics requiring speed both offensively and defensively. It's also important in different game situations like delivering and dodging body checks. 
     
    ### Passing
    The passing rating is a measure of how accurate the player can pass the puck. It's also a measure of the player's split vision and offensive smartness. Passing is very important offensively when creating scoring chances almost in every tactic.
     
    ### Puck handling
    The player's puck handling is used when the player dekes and tries to get pass the opponent. It's also used when deflecting shots trying to score goals. Even if mostly used offensively it can be useful defensively when trying to intercept passes and loose pucks. 
     
    ### Shooting
    Shooting is a value of both power and accuracy. An out most important rating when trying to score goals in almost every tactic. 
     
    ### Defence
    The defence rating tells how good the player is defensively, how well he reads and predicts the game. It is also used to tell how good the player is at positioning, intercept passes, poke checking and avoid being hit. It's also used offensively to make safe passes to prevent giveaways. 
     
    ### Physical
    This is a measure of the player's physical strength and how well he makes use of it. The physical rating is used both offensively and defensively depending on chosen tactics. But regardless it's important in game situations like delivering body checks, receiving body checks, battles along the boards, fightings and resisting injuries. Players of great height and weight will impact the physical value even more.
     
    ### Spirit
    The spirit rating is short for fighting spirit and is a measure of the player's courage, grit and with what intensity the player plays the game. The spirit value has a very diverse area of use in the game. Depending on the chosen tactic it may be used both offensively and defensively during the game. It's also used in various game situations like body checking, battling for loose pucks and fightings. It's also a vital part of the mental game and influences leadership, how well the player keeps cool when agitated and how well he can handle pressure and setbacks. It's also influences how much effort the player puts into training sessions.
     
    ### Endurance
    The endurance rating is a measure of how much effort the player can handle during the game before being fatigued. The endurance rating will also influence how fast the player will recover and how well he can resist injuries. It will also influence the effect of training intensity.
     
    ### Face-offs
    The face-offs rating is simply a measure of how good the player is at taking face-offs. Mostly used by centers.
     
    ## Goalie ratings{{skills}}
    Goalies have their own set of ratings to display strengths and weaknesses.
     
    ### Overall
    Just like the player overall the goalie overall is a weighted summary of the goalie's ratings only used as a comparable value.
     
    ### Reflexes
    The reflexes rating is a measure of how fast the goalie reacts to incoming shots. Since goalies often get very little time to react when opponents deflect shots or blocks the goalie's view this rating is vital when stopping shots.
     
    ### Positioning
    The positioning rating tells how well the goalie can cover angles and position himself in the goal. It's also a measure of how well the goalie can stand his ground which is making this value a multifaceted rating useful in most situations. Goalies of great height and weight will add another dimension to the positioning value.
     
    ### Puck control
    The puck control rating is a measure of how well the goalie handles rebounds and loose pucks in front of the goal. This is important to prevent the opponent from regaining puck possession or bang in a loose puck in front of the net.
     
    ### Puck handling
    The puck handling skills is how well the goalie can make saves with the stick and handle his stick with the puck. The latter is useful when the goalie acts as an extra defensemen intercepting the puck behind his own net both to prevent scoring opportunities but also to quickly set up plays and get the offense going.
     
    ### Athletic
    This is a measure of the goalie's agility and the ability to make those impossible saves when the goalie is out of position or down on the ice. It's also a measure of the goalie's ability to quickly move from post to post. Goalies of great height and weight will have a bigger challenge when making athletic saves.
     
    ### Endurance
    The endurance rating is a measure of how much effort the goalie can handle during the game before being fatigued. The endurance rating will also influence how fast the goalie will recover and how well he can resist injuries. It will also influence the effect of training intensity.
     
    ### Spirit
    The goalie's spirit influences of how well the goalie can handle pressure and setbacks during a game. It's also a measure of the goalie's courage when fighting for loose pucks in front of the net. It's also influences how much effort the goalie puts into training sessions.

    Fangowolf reacted to Naslund26 in Player Search   
    A nice addition to the search feature would be to hide players with a one-way contract on higher leagues. I find myself having to go thru every player's transfer tab to find out if I can claim him or trade for him. That's annoying. Another way to help with this would be to show the one-way option in the player preview pane.

    Fangowolf reacted to bouncer in Button for switch between teams   
    Since having two teams is now based in everyone's subscription, it would be nice to have the switch button more accessible on main team page. Going this way: "Manager - Action - Your career ... now scrolling because everything is now soooo big - Select" is more clicks than I would have guessed and since I do it many times per day (it's a start and it will decrease, but anyway), this would be very user friendly to have it one, max. two clicks away.

    Longtime member here, coming back. Excited to see what the game has become since I've taken a break. 
     
    With regards to why theres a fee: running servers and spending lots of time on this game is not cheap. Plus, if the game blows up, more time and money can be spent on making it better. $2 a month really isnt that much. $24 a year is less than spending on Franchise Hockey Manager/Eastside. Plus, where else can you play online vs Friends? 
     
    Can't promise I'll be here forever, but I owe it to Anders to see the release. This game has come so far!

    Fangowolf reacted to Paul T in Playoff Speed   
    This was voted on a bit ago.  I had a recent post in the focus group that voting should take place per game world.  I can't really speak for fast or normal since I will be joining the slow world, but I'll give my two cents anyways.
     
    Fast - No need to speed up the playoffs for obvious reasons.
     
    Normal - I wouldn't want playoffs sped up here either.  A game every 12 hours is good.  A game every 6 hours and you are possibly sleeping through 2 games.
     
    Slow - Yes, I 100% believe the world should be sped up during the playoffs for quite a few reasons.  If you are not involved in the playoffs, or even if you get eliminated quickly, you are waiting forever for any action.  If you are in the playoffs, I don't see why you wouldn't want quicker results.  A game every 12 hours seems reasonable.  I mean, even if you are a lazy A-Hole that sleeps 10+ hours a night, you still won't miss an opportunity to change things up between games, if needed.  I also have 3 kids and work 60 hours a week on average, so I'll never buy the "too busy" claim.  Keep it moving!
