    Players will no longer be unhappy with their current contracts before the last year when their contracts are expiring. The year when an extension is also allowed. Adjustment of player happiness impact on team culture (decreased). Adjustment on player role and roster demands. Fixed bug where the player role dialog could crash. Fixed various shortlist bugs. Various layout fixes. Please note! Sending PMs the old way is no longer possible. The new chat should be used instead.

    Player roster and role demands.
    Players will now evaluate and react to their assigned role and given ice-time. A player will present their demands/expectations of player role and roster status when negotiating contracts. In addition to salary, contract length and clauses you must now also offer the player which role and roster status you have in mind for him. The player will take the offered role into consideration when considering the contract offer. If a player is given another role or less ice-time than his contract suggests he can become unhappy which will impact his game performance, team culture and prevent a future contract extension with the team. The player profile will also influence how strongly the player may react. Since no player has a contracted role assignment at this time, players will evaluate their role and ice-time based on expectations alone. Their happiness reactions will therefore be less severe than if they actually had a contracted role.
    To see what role and roster status the player expects or has contracted you can visit the player page and select Player role from the action menu. You will also see a report from your assistant with the player's last 10 days game participation.
    Rookie status
    Young players are now given a rookie status when entering a new league. To be considered a rookie, a player must not have played in more than 25 games (15 for goalies) in the same or higher league level for any preceding seasons. Only players 25 years of age or younger are considered a rookie. The rookie status is displayed on the player's page transfer tab under the league reputation section. You will also see an asterisk on the player stats for seasons where the player was considered a rookie. Top 5 rookies in the league are displayed on the league home page.

Larger impact of player happiness and contract concerns.

    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.

    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.

    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.
