    I'm curious to see how communication is in your experiences. In the LIHL and from what I've heard, the IHL in Howitzer, it's dead quiet.
    You send trade offers and never get any reply, what's up with that?
    Where are the real gm's at?

    Reset your entire team. That's the secret. Scout rosters ahead of time and see what ratings are needed to be competitive. Keep those guys only and release the rest before the season ends. If you have folks already signed to new deals and are not competitive, assign them to your affiliate and/or trade them.
     
    Some people like to keep their players and stick with them, but the truth is most game worlds suffer from high rating inflation, which makes keeping old rosters difficult.

    OK I was wrong... LIHL to IHL is just double in cap so is only times 2.  However a base salary is 25k in LIHL and 50k in IHL.
     
    as 69k is already above the IHL base... it will be times 1.25 like you had said

    I have to agree as far as goalies are concerned. There are so many times I see fit and higher rated goalies have a percentage less than 0.900.
     
    However for the sake of trying to work through this, examine your defense to see what you can do to improve the coverage.
    What are your defense's strengths and weakness, what strategy are they on?

    On another management game I play (Soccer Manager), there's a game world feed when you enter your team's management page, and it allows you to comment on happenings. Maybe something like this could be added? I think it would boost interaction a bit.

    So the general consensus is biscuit is pretty lit.
    I just doing understand why you would play a game that's this immersive, and not take advantage of the community and communication.
    I wish there was a way to get people more active

    Rainsilent, Fangowolf, and Wendel Clark, thank you for all of your input. I've made a few changes now. I had no idea players would get exhausted, I was only monitoring that for goalies.
    I signed a defenseman, but he won't show up till tomorrow. In the meantime, I scratched the most tired defenseman and put in a serviceable guy from the minors (although his skating is still garbage) but it will work to get the guy back healthy.
     
    I'm also going to spread out the icetime a bit more and put 4 forwards on the pp and hopefully that will guard against fatigue. 
    I'll come back to this thread with any updates or questions.
    Thanks again for all of your help

    So the primary issues are that your checking line only has 1 decent checking type player and you have no two way defenders. Never mind the role that you set for your players. Basically you got players trying to do things that they aren't good at doing. Also all of your defensemen are defensive defensemen. You can set them to match line but stay at home would likely be best for most if not all of them. Only one of your forwards makes for a suitable player on a checking line so scrap the checking line for a two way line and adjust players as necessary.
     
    Finally team tactics wise set it to what you want it to be. The players will develop into the tactics that you choose. Just know that it may take time to do. Also you don't necessarily need a 7th defender however seeing as how most of your defenders have relatively low endurance ratings if you find your defenders getting tired a lot it may be an option worth exploring. That said only playing 1 on each PP would almost do the same thing as it will actively cut down the amount of time on ice the defenders are getting and that alone may be enough.

    70% scoring is probably way too much. Checking line is very difficult to get to work, and you only have 10% two-way line. Depending on what kind of players you have in your two-way line(s), two-way line is a good option for both preventing opponent goals (with defensive skilled players) and scoring some of your own (with offensive skilled players). You probably should either use some of your current players in two-way line(s) with more ice-time and/or get some more suitable players for this purpose. Every two-way line players should have decent DEF ability. I personally like them to have a green bar in two-way role even if they play playmaker/sniper/powerforward, if possible. I would try to balance the lines with 40-60% scoring and 40-60% two-way(/energy/checking) focuses.
     
    You also might want to consider changing your defensive tactic. My advice would be to consider between spread, conservative trap and aggressive forecheck, depending on how you want to emphasize what your current players are good at, what kind of game you want to play and build the team that way and what kind of tactics your opponents use. All these tactics are quite good against three different offense tactics and have only one obvious weakness each.
     
    Player should always fit into a role you want him to play. It does not necessarily need to be his best role bar (if it is, great), but preferably green bar nonetheless. Then the individual roles should fit into the line, so that the line has a good mix of different roles. And finally different lines should form a balanced whole.
