    GamePlanHockey got a reaction from StevieY in Quick update   
    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.
    I have started working on the v2.3.0 update. I will share some more thoughts regarding this update soon.
    Thanks again for your patience!

    GamePlanHockey reacted to Chris in Review of Game Plan Hockey Manager – Where simplicity is the key (rainsilent)   
    With limited resources to put into development simplicity is key and it is what makes GPHM shine.
    Before I start the review of Game Plan Hockey Manager I have to note a few things. First, the game has only two people working on it and they work on it in the spare time that they have in their busy lives. Second, this game has a $1.99 monthly subscription fee. It has a one month free trial though for anyone that wants a taste before they jump in. Finally, I have been playing this game since June of 2015. I enjoy the game. There is going to be some degree of bias as a result. I am going to try to remove as much as possible for the review.
    Game interface
    The game interface itself has a rather basic look and isn’t that flashy. It sticks to being rather basic, outside of the ever present faded, large team logo in the background on the left, while having a few nice touches here or there depending upon where you are in the menus. On the team page there is a team jersey in the top right with the logo and team name on the front. If you are on a player page there is a team jersey with the player’s last name and number on the back. It is a nice small touch to an otherwise simple visual interface.

    Yeah, sorry, forgot to post here as well.
    A couple of bugs have been fixed, but there's still one bug causing the dialog on Transfer page to crash if the scouting request list is empty. Posted a message in game about this. Working on a fix.

    GamePlanHockey got a reaction from Fangowolf in Player ratings/skills [DONE]   
    Updated October 28, 2019
     
    ## Player ratings
    The player ratings (or skills) are a measure of how good the player is in the different aspects of the game. The ratings display the player's strengths and weaknesses. The importance of each of the player's ratings vary depending on game situation and chosen tactics. There are 9 different ratings for players and 7 ratings for goalies. Ratings ranks from 40 to 99.
     
    ### Overall
    The overall ratings is a summary of the player's ratings. This summary is never used in any game situation, it's only used as a comparable value. Note that the overall summary is weighted differently depending on the player's position and is not the average of all the player's ratings. 
     
    ### Skating
    The skating rating is a combined value of speed, acceleration and balance. The skating rating of importance in tactics requiring speed both offensively and defensively. It's also important in different game situations like delivering and dodging body checks. 
     
    ### Passing
    The passing rating is a measure of how accurate the player can pass the puck. It's also a measure of the player's split vision and offensive smartness. Passing is very important offensively when creating scoring chances almost in every tactic.
     
    ### Puck handling
    The player's puck handling is used when the player dekes and tries to get pass the opponent. It's also used when deflecting shots trying to score goals. Even if mostly used offensively it can be useful defensively when trying to intercept passes and loose pucks. 
     
    ### Shooting
    Shooting is a value of both power and accuracy. An out most important rating when trying to score goals in almost every tactic. 
     
    ### Defence
    The defence rating tells how good the player is defensively, how well he reads and predicts the game. It is also used to tell how good the player is at positioning, intercept passes, poke checking and avoid being hit. It's also used offensively to make safe passes to prevent giveaways. 
     
    ### Physical
    This is a measure of the player's physical strength and how well he makes use of it. The physical rating is used both offensively and defensively depending on chosen tactics. But regardless it's important in game situations like delivering body checks, receiving body checks, battles along the boards, fightings and resisting injuries. Players of great height and weight will impact the physical value even more.
     
    ### Spirit
    The spirit rating is short for fighting spirit and is a measure of the player's courage, grit and with what intensity the player plays the game. The spirit value has a very diverse area of use in the game. Depending on the chosen tactic it may be used both offensively and defensively during the game. It's also used in various game situations like body checking, battling for loose pucks and fightings. It's also a vital part of the mental game and influences leadership, how well the player keeps cool when agitated and how well he can handle pressure and setbacks. It's also influences how much effort the player puts into training sessions.
     
    ### Endurance
    The endurance rating is a measure of how much effort the player can handle during the game before being fatigued. The endurance rating will also influence how fast the player will recover and how well he can resist injuries. It will also influence the effect of training intensity.
     
    ### Face-offs
    The face-offs rating is simply a measure of how good the player is at taking face-offs. Mostly used by centers.
     
    ## Goalie ratings{{skills}}
    Goalies have their own set of ratings to display strengths and weaknesses.
     
    ### Overall
    Just like the player overall the goalie overall is a weighted summary of the goalie's ratings only used as a comparable value.
     
    ### Reflexes
    The reflexes rating is a measure of how fast the goalie reacts to incoming shots. Since goalies often get very little time to react when opponents deflect shots or blocks the goalie's view this rating is vital when stopping shots.
     
    ### Positioning
    The positioning rating tells how well the goalie can cover angles and position himself in the goal. It's also a measure of how well the goalie can stand his ground which is making this value a multifaceted rating useful in most situations. Goalies of great height and weight will add another dimension to the positioning value.
     
    ### Puck control
    The puck control rating is a measure of how well the goalie handles rebounds and loose pucks in front of the goal. This is important to prevent the opponent from regaining puck possession or bang in a loose puck in front of the net.
     
    ### Puck handling
    The puck handling skills is how well the goalie can make saves with the stick and handle his stick with the puck. The latter is useful when the goalie acts as an extra defensemen intercepting the puck behind his own net both to prevent scoring opportunities but also to quickly set up plays and get the offense going.
     
    ### Athletic
    This is a measure of the goalie's agility and the ability to make those impossible saves when the goalie is out of position or down on the ice. It's also a measure of the goalie's ability to quickly move from post to post. Goalies of great height and weight will have a bigger challenge when making athletic saves.
     
    ### Endurance
    The endurance rating is a measure of how much effort the goalie can handle during the game before being fatigued. The endurance rating will also influence how fast the goalie will recover and how well he can resist injuries. It will also influence the effect of training intensity.
     
    ### Spirit
    The goalie's spirit influences of how well the goalie can handle pressure and setbacks during a game. It's also a measure of the goalie's courage when fighting for loose pucks in front of the net. It's also influences how much effort the goalie puts into training sessions.
