    I raise you my Buzzer GHL goaltender - 94 overall. The last loss was against a team near the bottom of the league in every category. He lasted 10 minutes.

    Game mechanics, imho - I've grown used to it. Identical consistency issues with my starters in both Cage and Buzzer.

    Both 94 overall and both can last only about 3-4 games before they have a monumental collapse and a goalie rating in the red. This sim has a bit of black humour in it when it comes to goaltending  .

    Ah yes, the rare and elusive 24.00 GAA. Nothing brings people together like shit goaltending.

    Priceless!!
    That last stat line is very similar to my game against the #12 Rome Trojans earlier this season (who scored more in that game than their next 3 combined). 


    At least we can commiserate!

    What's everyone think about Ovechkin's chances of catching Gretzky on the all time goals list?  Originally a record I thought could never be broken seems to be in reach.  Barring injury, he should be around Esposito by end of season.  I suppose it depends on if he can play another 4-5 seasons.
    THEN, alls he needs is another 1400 assists to catch him in points.

    I'd love a targeting option.  For instance, we already have Left Wing Lock, why not have a target for certain player, etc.  I also wish we could differentiate between lines the tactic they use.  Some I want to be assholes, others I want to only take a punch and walk away.  Having everyone on the team with the same tactic takes away the point of having different lines.  But realize I am nitpicking at this point!  But there are teams where all I really care about is hurting them as much as possible no matter the final score, haha.  Just give us THAT option and I'll be happy!

    follow him this season.  Season 2 he was reliable.  Very rarely any great games, but no horrible games either.  Last season he would get 2 shutouts followed up by 3 games of getting pulled.  But it's going to be the same thing again this season, I'll have to out shoot opponents by 10+ in order to win.  It's just how we roll.

    We are the Lords of the Overtime! We are huffing and puffing and always find ourselves in an uphill battle, and if we don't lose in regulation time, then comes the lucky escape! I have a suspicion that there will be no lucky escape against the Sebastian Storm. They have a superior squad, and Dave "granpubah" Calloway is a very experienced manager with great tactical skill. I have learnt a lot about the game's tactical aspects just watching his team, and analyzing our battles. My team started the career in the LIHL, the Storm is a well settled SHL team, so it will be a great challenge.
    Smashvilles4Real is going to travel to the Knights, they have a terrific team, so Smash need to dig deep if they want to steal some points!:) The Knights offered me Dawkins in a trade, and I feel some regret because I rejected the offer.
    That's an interesting trade:
     
    From Knights (SHL) to Twisters (BHL)
    SHL level 1st round pick
    SHL level 2nd round pick
    SHL level 2nd round pick
     
    From Twisters to Knights
    CHL level 1st round pick
    CHL level 2nd round pick
    CHL level 1st round pick
    BHL level 2nd round pick

    This would improve the free agency for sure! I will add this to the future backlog.
    It's coming real soon. The new scouting feature is actually finished and I'm making some additional bug fixes and improvements. Couldn't make the release as promised in January but expect this in the beginning of February.

    Agreed - keep it coming! Big Ducks are my early-season favourite, I've seen them build their team for the past 3 seasons, and they should shake some things up in the GHL if they get there. Tigers are a team to watch, as well as the Fighting Knights - will be keeping an eye on them all this season.

    I think a big issue was captaincy! Guys just weren't stepping up but now they seem to be getting it together--I'm excited now that we're winning, it's pretty encouraging to have a HUGE jump in powerplay performance and everything over all.

    AlexanderRasputin reacted to Wick Schozen in Playoff Stats   
    I love this game so I don't want to rag on it too much. But it seems a little baffling that one of the key pillars of the allure of this game is supposed to be "love for stats" as stated on the home page and yet we don't have league player stats for the playoffs!
    On top of that, something I have previously brought up, if you look at the team history page not a single manager can decipher where a team finished in the playoffs based on the current description of where they finished in the playoffs. While implementing a player statistics page for playoffs may be a large amount of work to include surely just changing the phrasing of "playoff 2" or "playoff 3" to "round one exit", "round two exit", "lost in GHL Cup finals" would not be that hard to adjust.
    That being said, still love the amazing achievement Anders has done with creating this game. I just feel like some of the smaller things are getting overlooked in favour of larger projects that are continually pushed back because of the scale of work required to complete them.

    Good European absinthe (I like German, i.e. Eichelberger) - or Slivovice (Czech plum liquor).

    Fair warning - either is not for everyone. You drink a little cup, then another little cup, and very suddenly (and irreversibly) your night becomes a lot more interesting.

    Yeah, with the relaunch, we actually LOST some search ability in the data.  Ok, we got advanced stats, but whatev, I'd still prefer the old search of outgoing contracts.  
    For a game that prides itself on scouting, it seems like it tries to make it extra hard.  If you could download a game world of players which likely already exists in some sort of database in the raw data that the game engine is pulling from (but I am far from a software developer), you could include all players, including AAHL and the other non-playable leagues pretty straight forward.
