    Gator Raid got a reaction from zinnyzxx in Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)   
    I would just like some kind of record attached to my manager profile like Jack said. In 19 seasons as GM of the Unity Fire Dogs I have 7 cups and 11 regular season titles, and am very proud of it. I would like for that to stay with me as recognition of my accomplishments, and I know many other managers would like that too.

    I agree with Gator Raid, I'm not huge on micromanaging the minutiae.  I like how GPHM has a salary cap and that's it.  It's not about being the richest team, it's about having the right players to win a cup.

    My questions...
     
    Why were you suspended?
     
    Did you cheat?
     
    If so, I have no sympathy for you.  You got what you had coming to you.

    To add to the question, if the Game Worlds are reset, can the managers that won the Championships get like a little notice on their manager page. I was thinking like right under the experience bar. It could say like:
     
    Manager First Name
    Manager Last Name
    Manager no.
    Nationality:
    Games played:
    Record: 0-0-0-0
    Experience: 1 seasons
    Championships: 0 Cups (like right here)

    And after every Cup win a cup gets added so the hard work a manager has put into the previous seasons doesn't get forgotten. It's just a suggestion. Also, thank you to all the moderators as well as Anders for working soo hard on creating a more competitive and friendly environment as well as upgrading this game so that it can reach its full potential. Very thankful guys, keep up the great work!

    Gator Raid reacted to Jack Reacher in Playoff Push?   
    I hate my team. LOL. I thought the year would go great since I got some of my key veterans returning, but all it did was just sink me in 16th early on. It took me 10 games to actually get out of 16th only to be stuck in 15th for 5-8 games. I stayed mediocre for the rest of the season then my team finally woke up but it was too late. I made a playoff push and on the last day of games, I beat my opponent 5-2, which I thought would seal my playoff hopes, but no I lost out the #8 seed to another team that had a goal differential of +4 and I had +3. It was quite disappointing and quite upsetting since this was my second time of not making playoffs in franchise history. I just wanted to share my story...BE Prepared no matter how good you think your team is! Good Luck to all teams in playoffs and everyone BE PREPARED, I WILL BE BACK! lol

    I see where your coming from, but seeing the 8th place team lose to the 16th place team doesn’t seem unrealistic to me. I lost to the same team 2-0 while being 1st and them being last, and out shooting them 37-25. goalie must have stood on his head haha! You make valid points with the inconsistency of star players, my star center Gavrikov has 60+ points a season for 3 years straight then he was injured for almost half a season and never came back the same. I think the sim engine needs tweaking, but the development team has stated they are working on this and it will be vastly improved in the future. Nothing much can be done till then, so stay positive and hope it’s just a rough patch in your season. You have a great team going for you and can make playoffs this year, so just keep chugging along!
     
    Good luck this season, I look forward to playing you soon!

    Another good example is the game I just had against you, you beat me today when you are placed 8 and I’m placed 1, an 8 spot difference. Edson beat you when placed 16, and you placed 8, an 8 spot difference. It happens to every team, you can’t beat everyone below you and lose to everyone ahead of you, it just doesn’t work like that.

    I agree with ET2018, i would assume you would utilize some common sense when doing the trade and stuff.  I don't want to rip too much into you, but I would only forgive you once I see some kind of proof you have improved and will not revert back to cheating. Like you said some managers will take more time forgiving you,but I myself will need you to start by earning back our trust, which will take more time. And proving you won't cheat again is the only way I will be able to forgive you.

    No, he will play for them for this season, then be returned to you and you will have an opportunity to sign them this offseason. This is a good thing actually because then he will get ice time and develop faster. His rights are still yours.

    Gator Raid got a reaction from Mattti0 in Trade Offer Abuse by Fang   
    Whenever making a substantial offer, I always use the message function before using the trade window. This gives me the opportunity to explain my reasoning for the trade as well as gives the other party a chance to explain why they are rejecting. When doing this I’ve never had a negative result, regardless of whether the trade goes through or not. The reason I say the result is never negative is because I always come away with something from it, whether it be a better understanding of what that specific manager is like personality wise or what the market for certain players is at the moment. I’ve also never ended a deal on bad terms when doing this, I always ending it with a goodluck or thank you for your time, and always get a similar final reply back. I feel if every gm does this, there will be a lot less tension in the gameworlds and community as a whole.

    Gator Raid reacted to Jack Reacher in GHL Tradeblock   
    Well it looks like the age factor of the game has caught up to me. I am trading everyone away except Kadura who is untouchable. In return for these high overall players I have, I need atleast 1 prospect(88+ overall and less than 20 years old) and a draft pick. The asking price is steep because these players can make an impact on your team instantly. Any team that cannot afford that price please message me to find out what type of trade we can negotiate. ALL TEAMS MUST message me before offering, if teams don't I will most likely ignore your offer. Thanks and let those messages come in!

    I have a guy named "Seb Jett"(43 years old) and he is legit a god. He has dropped a lot from being 94-95 overall, he is now 56 overall but he has been a major factor on my team. I still have him signed to a contract so that he can retire on my team, and so that he can retire a legend(yes my team is the legends and the pun was intended). He's been here since the start of Game World Howitzer.

    Gator Raid reacted to Jack Reacher in How's Communication in Your World?   
    Well Marque, many people saw my post on Howitzer forums about the GHL trade block and now teams in the GHL and SHL have been contacting me since my posts on there. There are some managers who like using messages so they don't offer some stupid trade and get themselves ignored for a while. I want to keep an open relationship with all managers, but if they don't consult me before an offer for a high rated player, I will just ignore their trade. If they do message me, I'm more inclined to accept the trade because both managers would have a back and forth negotiations going on. Just recently I have had about 3-4 conversations that have gone back and forth more than 5 times about a trade(Gator Raid, John Smith, Alexander Rasputin). I try and have at least one message to every team per season, even if it is to just talk about their team and their success and not a trade offer. I have asked many managers about their opinion on a player and that has helped me with the learning process when I first joined the game and so I want to continue it to more managers if they need any advice or anything like that. And managers like Wick (New Castle-GHL) have really improved communication in the game. He has a poll every season about the league and its players. It's fun to see what other managers think and it opens up your eyes to the possibility of learning something from veteran managers.

    Gator Raid got a reaction from Jack Reacher in Trade value formula   
    I’ve been trying to create a formula to determine trade value, but no matter how much I tweak it, I can never get it perfect. Every time I get close, there are always one or two players that get valued either too high or too low. So that brings me to my question, has anyone else managed to create a formula that they think calculates trade value accurately?

    Gator Raid reacted to Jack Reacher in String of continuous injuries   
    In my experience changing the training hasn't done much if the player is a consistent player that gets injured. Go to a player's individual stats and check how many games he has played in each season and based off of that determine if he gets injured or not. like 5-10 games injured is fine like once every 5 seasons or something, but if it's more frequent then I suggest either trading him while he still has value or having a backup to play his role since he will probably get hurt. One thing that has worked for me is changing the tactics. I used to play on hard and players would get injured left right and center, so I decided to to play around with those tactics for one season. For every 20 games, I switched up the tactics each time(one time "Hard", next "Dirty", and so on). From that correlation I determined player injuries had something to do with those tactics. From that experiment, I learned that more injuries occur in "Dirty" tactic, then "Hard", then "Normal", then "Fair", and then "Safe". My team had 0 injuries when playing in Fair and Safe. Hope this helped.
