    I don't get all the upset over the subscription. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm on here playing probably 3 times a day, spending anywhere from 5 minutes to 30min each day.
    The amount of time I put into this, and how fun it is, 3.50 a month is penny change.
    I know money is an issue for people, but we're talking a happy meal a month.
     
    On a related note, can you give more than 3.50? Devs deserve more for what they're putting out.

    Ok guys, I really think Anders and Tobias did an amazing effort here. To be honest, I would probably stopped playing if the original fees would be activated. And I'm playing this game for over 3 years now. But this is a different story, they listened to our feedback and made a very nice compromise. I don't know a lot, if any, game developers who would do this. 
     
    I'm sure a lot of you would consider paying $1.99 a month now and rightfully so. And if not, there's a free league as well, so everybody happy. In my opinion there is no need to check for ads so that we can play for free. I think they deserve credits and compensation for their hard work. I always learned that only the sun goes up for nothing, if you know what I mean ;-)
     
    Just let that sink in and maybe wait until we've all tried the new engine and options. I'm sure it will be worth it.

    From what I understand, the game would practically reset in every way. We would all choose new teams, and start over. I think this will likely happen.
     
    However Devs, I agree that in the event of a full reset, it would be great to have some kind of win loss record of what we accomplished in the old game, just for the sake of not deleting what we've done.

    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.

    yes... and why shouldn't they be? Supporting the game enables it to move forward and if you aren't willing to pay a very small price to aid in the development then why do you feel you should have just as much say as those who do? The people who are willing to spend a few bucks a month are the ones that are helping these updates come to fruition which all of you who don't support the game, still reap the benefits of the updates regardless. Plus given every topic as far as updates are voted on by the group of supporters, it is still fair to all in the long run and I still say that even though certain votes I've made myself were not the majority and lost and yet it is no problem for me based on one simple thing: Anders and staff have done an amazing job thus far even though there's still lots of room for improvement. So let me leave you with a little reminder; they didn't need to include anyone in their decisions and yet they did and given that the all star accounts offer no perks in game other than names and numbers which don't affect gameplay, is it really that crazy that the people who are willing to pay a few bucks to make the game better for everyone are the ones used to aid them in making the best decisions for everyone??

    You're wasting time creating multiple accounts on the forums now. No one believes you, and no one wants you here. Stop wasting everyone's time, and more importantly, Anders' and Tobias' time with your petty nonsense. You've been givien too many chances, and I for one, am sick of your BS.

    This one is always funny when it happens... but there's a valid explanation.  The "tactical" notes aren't based on what happens in the game at all.  It is based on how well your tactics match up against your opponents.  For example, the Spread defense manages very well against the Dump and Chase offense.  The note will always read The team managed quite well tactically in defence against our opponent's offense regardless if you give up 1 or 6 goals.  I feel like a lot of the games notes are based more on how your team is set up rather than actual game results.

    You got a couple numbers off, so I'll just write it out.
     
     
    EDIT: THE FORMAT OF GAME WORLDS HAVE BEEN CHANGED, AND WHILE THIS IS NO LONGER EXACTLY CORRECT, ITS STILL ROUGHLY RIGHT. CHANGES INCLUDE THAT THERE IS NOW A COPPER LEAGUE BETWEEN THE IHL AND BHL. LEAGUES HAVE ALSO BEEN DOUBLED IN SIZE CREATING AN EASTERN AND WESTERN CONFERENCE. THE TWO CONFERENCES WILL FACE EACH OTHER DURING REGULAR SEASON, HOWEVER WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE GHL, WILL PLAY PLAYOFF GAMES EXCLUSIVELY AGAINST THEIR OWN CONFERENCE.
     
    PLAYOFF/RELEGATION CHANGES:
    GHL: TOP 8 TEAMS IN EACH CONFERENCE COMPETE IN THE PLAYOFFS (16 TEAMS IN TOTAL) FOR THE GHL CUP
    RELEGATION PLAYOFFS: TEAMS 10 AND 11 IN A CONFERENCE WILL FACE EACH OTHER IN A PLAYOFF SERIES, LOSER IS AUTOMATICALLY RELEGATED
    PROMOTION PLAYOFFS: TEAMS 3 TO 5 IN A CONFERENCE WILL FACE EACH OTHER IN A COUPLE PLAYOFF SERIES, WINNER IS AUTOMATICALLY PROMOTED
     
    The leagues in-game now also have a lot more detail and it should be more clear if you go to league page --> playoff tab.
     
     
    GHL:
    1st-8th play playoffs for Golden Cup
    9th-12th watch the Golden Cup
    13th & 14th are in relegation playoffs, they will match up against a team from SHL playoffs and winners will be in the GHL next season, losers in the SHL
    15 & 16th are relegated to SHL
     
    SHL:
    1st & 2nd are automatically promoted
    3rd - 6th play promotion playoffs
                 -3rd vs 6th -> winner plays 14th SHL team (I think) for a chance at promotion
                 -4th vs 5th -> winner plays 13th SHL team
                 -it's possible that there can be 0 to 2 teams that earn promotion through the promotion playoffs (for a maximum of 4 teams                                                 -promoting and relegating)
    7th-12th watch the Golden Cup
    13th & 14th are in the relegation playoffs and each match up against a BHL team
    15th and 16th are automatically relegated
     
    BHL:
    1st & 2nd are automatically promoted
    3rd - 6th play promotion playoffs -> the 2 winners then have to play teams 13 and 14 from the SHL
    7th - 12th watch the Golden Cup
    13th & 14th play in the relegation playoffs and must match up against an IHL team
    15th & 16th are automatically relegated
     
    IHL:
    1st & 2nd are automatically promoted
    3rd-6th play promotion playoffs -> the 2 winners must match up against the BHL relegation playoff teams
    7th-10th watch the Golden Cup
    11th - 14th do relegation playoffs
               -this isn't a situation I've been in nor payed attention too, I'm not sure if there's a mini tournament among themselves and the 2                                           -losers have to play the LIHL playoff winners or if they all have to play LIHL winners. But you should kind of see the pattern of what                                   -is happening now.
    15th & 16th are automatically relegated
     
    LIHL:
    1st & 2nd are automatically promoted
    3rd-10th play in the promotion playoffs
              -I've been in this situation before, but it's been so long that I forget exactly how it plays out. It's either all 4 winners play the 4 IHL                                        -relegation playoff teams, or there is an extra round and the 2 winners play the 2 losers of an IHL relegation round
    11th-16th watch the Golden Cup

    CPU teams can offer contracts to prospects. You still hold the rights until 21. You can offer a contract to your prospect that is signed with a cpu team at any time, and he'll join your team at the start of the next season.
     
    Human managers can't offer contracts to prospects they don't have rights to.
     
    Edit: It appears that gators type faster than cats.

    zinnyzxx got a reaction from Mattti0 in Trade Offer Abuse by Fang   
    When trading with other human gm's, I really don't worry about whatever the "trade value" is because it's often dead wrong. The trade value says all first round picks across all leagues have the same trade value.
    So when forming a trade offer, look at the team you're offering and see what might be an area that they want to improve. Messaging them as well will help offers big time.

    I am with Jack and ET2018 on this. GHL/SHL managers talk well in Howitzer - I sent a number of messages regarding trades this off-season and nearly all of them received replies, most in good taste  . Some, like from Jack Reacher and Jusu from Stony Brook Steel, being long exchanges that were excellent and resulted in good understanding and respect on both sides. It has definitely made participating a lot more interesting for me to see other managers who are invested in more than just the mathematics of the game.

    I have only managed my team for 4 seasons, but BHL and IHL were ok. Some new BHL managers like Andreas Duseault are quite communicative, but of course mostly about trades. I sent a few welcome messages to past IHL opponents that were promoted to BHL last season. So, to me, game world feed as in Soccer Manager would be a good thing - a perfect next step. This should not be a single-player game, managers should talk about a number of things, perhaps comment on standings or particular games and build an intangible layer of in-game interaction that is not only based on trades. Certainly the world has enough depth to allow it, so great to hear that it is coming in the future.
