    Deadwing reacted to Paul T in [BUI] All Menus Struggling to Load   
    I deleted all of my World Messages and most of my World PMs and the page load time is now approximately 5 seconds compared to the previous 15-20 seconds.  A noticeable difference.  Still a slight lag from the other tabs which take about a second to load, but much better.
    Agree with Deadwing - with Discord and the new messaging system, we probably don't have a use for the World PMs.

    Thanks for the report and the info regarding the season switch. Will check this out.
    Question, the error message is displayed when trying to save your changes? Or when loading the editor?

    Since you can send PM's through the new chat as well, perhaps sometime in the future, when the new chat has been thoroughly tested and cleaned out of any possible bugs, the old PM messaging system could just go away? I mean, it's clunky to use and doesn't really serve a purpose once we have reliable, and clearly better alternative. I haven't noticed any flaws in the new chat, but I admit I haven't used it enough to really tell as of yet. However, what little I have used it, I do like the ease of use and how it's always easily available just one click away. Very nice addition.

    Chat (BETA)
    We're trying out a new chat with both public and private channels. With no second account needed we hope that more managers will participate in the in game communication so we can ease trade discussions, build team rivalries and really make the game worlds come alive.
    So what about Discord? We have no plans on removing our channels on Discord. We believe there is room for both chats. This new chat is to down the road replace the old PM-messaging system, mainly to make other managers more approachable to discuss trades and similar.
    The chat is available through the big chat icon found at the bottom right of your screen on every page. You can also start a discussion with another manager from his or hers team page, team dropdown or directly from the trade window.
    This new chat is currently in a BETA-stage and we're interested in your opinion for future development. So don't hesitate to send us feedback! More information regarding the chat can also be found in the help files.

    Removed transfer restrictions* for new users during free trial Report cheating is now only available for subscribing members.  *The transfer restrictions during free trial (previously called restricted trial) has now been removed. Those restrictions was implemented to prevent cheaters abusing the game with multiple free accounts. But they also prevented new users from getting a good first impression of the game not being able to try out the full game experience. That's why transfers are now allowed during free trial. However, if a user is receiving suspicions of cheating during the free trial the transfer restrictions will, once again, come into force.

    Deadwing reacted to Paul T in Scouting report attributes   
    Has anyone decided to try and decipher how certain attributes on player scouting reports impact a player's performance or what they mean?
    Here's the ones that I am currently curious about:  Focus, Persistence & Resilience.
    My best guesses:
      -  Focus - the ability of players to not be impacted by the other team trying to agitate or play tough - and/or a player's determination.
      -  Persistence - I could be getting this mixed up with my guess on Focus above - or it could be how well a player can endure all game situations and late in games.
      -  Resilience - I could also be getting this one mixed up with my guess on Focus - or it could be how well a player can break out of slumps over a period of games.
    I've run through quite a few scouting reports and many of my players differ in these areas, so I can only assume that they impact the game differently.
    Thoughts from other managers - and insight from the admins - are both welcome and appreciated.  Also, if there are other attributes that should be discussed, post 'em up.  I feel like the rest of them are self explanatory and can mostly be explained by looking at a player's ratings, size and traits.

    Deadwing reacted to Paul T in Current road map   
    Hi all,
    As we are currently in silly season in Cage, this crossed my mind again.  This idea gained some traction in the focus group prior to the reset.  I'm wondering if it would be a huge level of effort to program.

    Deadwing reacted to Walter A. Donaldson in Ramblin' around New Haven   
    The Ramblers Honor the Number of Retired Forward Mackenzie "Mac" Wagers before the game against the Becancour Kingsmen, Howie Mazurek was presented with the Number 8 sweater by Mac Wagers, to show the significance of the Number to be worn. Mac Wagers was touched by the gesture and gave a speech:
    "I gave a lot of my Career for the Ramblers organization, I retired after last season. I'm honored to give my number to Howie Mazurek, a future star with the Ramblers and hopefully for many years to come will carry my number as a Rambler for many years."
    Wagers played 265 games in GHL, While scoring 39 goals and adding 53 Assists, while those numbers aren't spectacular his defensive ability and spirit won him the Admiration of Teammates, Coaches, and Fans alike. In the SHL he Played 240 games, scoring 51 goals and adding 69 assists. He was a staple on the Ramblers Penalty Kill, while adding great corner work and grit to the team. Coach Donaldson said of Wagers,
    "Mac was an important part of the team while he only topped off at 21 goals in a season, he brought a lot more to the team in terms of Defensive ability, fighting spirit, and toughness. Mac now is coaching the New Haven Pegasus, but he will never be as good as I was during the past 3 seasons, because he won't be able to look down his bench and shout, 'Mac get out there!' I'll miss his penalty killing ability. Howie better wear his number with humility because he is wearing the Number of one of the finest players I've ever coached and he better live up to it!"
    Mazurek was given number 8 in training camp by Wagers, this ceremony was a public showing of it, and putting Wagers' number in the Rafters. The Ramblers have made it a practice not to retire numbers except in the case of career Ending Injuries. The Ramblers won the game 4-1, veteran Goalie Dylan Deraspe Stopped 25 out of 26 shots, to lead the Ramblers to Victory.

    Deadwing reacted to GamePlanHockey in Quick update   
    I thought I 'd owe you all a quick update on what's been going on lately. The last month has been crazy and I've been falling behind with almost everything, this game included. I have in the last couple of weeks started both a new job and a small renovation of the house. And with everything else that's going on in the world right now I have not been able to put in that many hours on the game lately. 
    So please accept my apologies for the lack of updates and not responding to questions and emails lately. I will do my best to catch up as soon as possible. But today I finally managed to make an update fixing the current bugs with scouting reports and draft preferences.
    I have started working on the v2.3.0 update. I will share some more thoughts regarding this update soon.
    Thanks again for your patience!

    The New Haven Ramblers are a storied team, however this team returned under Don Werner, bringing along his old Pal Walter Donaldson as coach. The Town of New Haven has had teams since 1926. The team moved From Dalmeny where they were known as the Bad Apples to New Haven where they started out as the Whalers at the end of Season 3. Season 4 was an extremely successful year the Signings of New Captain Veteran Defenseman Assem Stanger, strong play from new defenseman Karel Rognon Fine work from veteran Center-turned-Right Winger Mackenzie Wagers, and the strong push by veteran goalie Dylan Deraspe, led to a second place finish and a promotion to the GHL. The Ramblers had a rough year in the GHL though they put up a good fight for twelfth but fell short, though it brought new regular faces, Defensemen Christian "Chris" Jorgenson and Yanick "Johnny" Guerrier, and Center Jayden-Dubois Quentin known to his teammate's as Jay. They finished 3rd the next year in the SHL, and won the playoffs on Deraspe's excellent goaltending, earning a second chance at the GHL. That second year started out well, with the Ramblers at 7th then top Scorer Houston "Howie" Mazurek went down with a severe injury knocking him off for 35 games, the team's offense sagged and they dropped to thirteenth place, they fought hard to get to twelfth, but they were a few points out. They had many Salary Problems, the Old reliables had aged, particularly Captain Assem Stanger, Jay Quentin, John Guerrier, and Chris Jorgenson. Though the team is aging in some parts, a new addition of Youth came into the Roster, namely Alpo "Al" Laitenen, Howie Mazurek, Urmas "Jim" Nurminen, Danick "Dan" McNally, Marcus "Marc" Godbois, and Aukusti "Artie" Lipponen seemed to be coming into their own. The future is uncertain for the Ramblers, they are an old team, with the Cracks starting to show but the Youngsters show great promise, and there are new Veterans starting to take shape in Roscoe Hartshorn, Matteo "Matt" Bellini, and Nathenial "Nate" Grieco. GM Werner Feel that the team needs to grow and let their youth take flight, with a promising future, The Era of Season 4-8 will be well remembered in Ramblers' fans memories.

    Deadwing reacted to Wick Schozen in defensive tactics   
    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.

    If you're a whisky drinker and got some cash to spend I'd suggest Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Bowmore single malt is great, but also pricey. If you want something to enjoy more often, Famous Grouse is a good choice.
     
    From mixed drinks, I always choose Jack n' Coke. Better taste result than any rum I've ever tried with coke. I know rum n' coke is a thing, but I like my rum straight.
     
    From rums I like to go for the smoother ones, which means spiced mixes. Captain Morgan Spiced Gold and Negrita Golden Spice are both great ones to down while going through FA's during off season. 
     
    From whisky liquors Southern Comfort is the way to go. Sweet and easy.

    Its hard to even answer as good thread as this is. I have kept reading this post many times and wondering things around this topic. Thanks for Paul using so much time for this good thread, very good job!
    Every season i have had WI on green, so I cant compare really from season to season this. One thing I could raise above others from my experiences is goalies big games. For me clearly better goalie on paper has been always worse option than the ”worse” one with with good big games and traits overall. Also spirit can have positive effect on this but that is only speculation.
    Few other points I have given value, but again this is only my opinion to things and only thing that supports it is very good WI and ok team succes.
    - Captains have very large impact to winner instinct so not only the leadership but the whole profile and spirit is valuable.
    - Continue for latest. Is your captain more commander or true leader? How about other captains? Other players? Does they match? Difficult to make perfectly when building team but might be big factor.
    -Older players are important and could effect more with good traits and also reputation
    - Profile and big games of your star players
     
    Some mumbling from my experiences. You should approach this as a reasearch as there are not many season yet exprienced this.
