How is your team doing?

Recommended Posts

I'm in the World Alfa, in the bronze league and just took this team before the start of the new season. We are currently 3-0 and first in the bronze league. I had a hard time bringing free agents, but I have able to got get a 4th center and some depth players.  My objective is to get promotion this season and be able to be in Golden League in maybe 3-4 seasons.

I'm playing in the Alfa word also. Last season i won the bronze league with my team Pe Ell Coolcats and got promoted to the Silver league. The players and the tactics i use seems to work as i'm currently in the lead of the Silver league also.

Pe Ell Coolcats, i remember that name, your team did really well in Alpha Season 2.

 

I'm the former manager of East Rockaway Rhinos, i left the Alpha world to join the Bravo World. I heard that team isn't doing well anymore since i left  :(

I joined the LIHL in alfa world a game into the seaon, as the 0-0-0-1 Wailua Homesteads Vipers.  I'm currently sitting in 9th with a 4-0-1-5 record and I own the co-highest point scorer in the league.  I'm currently trying to find the right formula to put up consistent points but my forwards are struggling to score goals.  Fortunately 4 of my top 6 scorers are D-men, though I don't know how long that can be sustained. -_-

I took over part way through the second season in Alpha World IHL (Iron Hockey League) with the Portland Winterhawks and was cruising along in first place until I started to mess with some tactics and then right as the playoffs hit, I had 4 players on the injury list, and we didn't make it out of the first round.

 

I am pretty new to the world of hockey having bought my first set of season tickets to the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL (Portland, Oregon, USA) who are Back to Back to Back to Back Western Conference Champions of the WHL, and are gearing up for another run at the playoffs this season.  We have the likes of Nic Petan (Canada), Oliver Bjorkstrand (Netherlands), and Chase De Leo (USA) who all played in the World Juniors just a bit ago with Nic Petan's Canadian team taking Gold from Russia.

 

My #1 player is my Line 1 Center Owen Dugdale

I have three excellent Goalies who I could start any day and feel like I will win, with my 19 year old getting the Starting Job.

I took over Palm Harbor Wild Cats a game into in the second season (Delta World). Currently in first place with 105 points. Main thing that I have found is that this sim does a great job of valuing strategy and team chemistry. Your best bet is to not bet on only your highlight players to win through big games. Best example I can give for this is Olexandr Pimenov, one of my forwards who leads the league in points currently. He is 4th or 5th best forward on the team overall and starts in my 4th line but plays a vital role in my special teams. Yet he leads the league in points while being 11th on my team in average time on ice per game. 

 

That essentially is why I enjoy this sim. Strategy > A couple dudes

Was in the IHL when i first started on day 77, and I didn't recieve a notice that I had to sign my players. More than 2/3s of my team was no where to be found and I was demoted. Guess challenges make this game much more fun. Just hate waiting for players to sign with my team.

I took over the Mount Cobb Wolverines in Game World Duster in the middle of the first season and barely was safe in BHL by the playoffs (finished 14th). In the second year, the Wolverines absolute dominated the League with a record of 52-1-0-7, being 1st in GF, GA, PP and PK and two of the players in the top 2 of scoring with 75 and 74 points.

 

My other team, in Game World Clapper is the Kaukauna Black Flag, and has been struggle with a lot difficulties, and finished 9th in SHL the first season. I think the team deserve much more, so will see in the second year.

The success is starting to hurt my financial position. I'm close to the cap and a couple of players are starting to get unhappy about their contracts.

 

Some hard decisions will have to be made sooner than i would like  :(

It's good see some success stories.  This game is all about getting good talent, and getting the team to play together nicely with cohesive lines and good tactics.

 

My team (Mount Healthy Young Guns in the GHL/ Game World Biscuit), were in dead last place when I took them over.  The 16th spot with 1 win and 6 or 8 losses.  I couldn't get any free agents to sign with us, because they obviously consider the team record when deciding between multiple options.

 

But we finally managed to pick up a couple of players by offering really high salaries, then managed a couple of wins, and now that I've worked our team up to the 7th spot in the league, I'm able to actually choose guys that fit my needs.  I have just recently signed an awesome goalie and forward, and I'm looking to improve our position even more.

 

Last to first in one season is my current goal.  :)

Started since last Wednesday in Game World Biscuit, playing in the GHL with the Deadwood Vandals. So far I'm super excited and already asked lots of friends to join as well. Normally I don't reply on forums but I'm so exited about this game that I wanted to share this!

 

If this is the beta, I can't wait for the upgrades! Amazing work and kudos to Anders. Usually I try a lot of different managergames and I end up playing none... Since hockey is my passion I'm always looking for a great hockey manager game and hope to stick with it. So far I never found a decent one, except GPHM! This is a keeper for sure!

Thank you so much for that feedback! Your story sounds just like how I ended up creating this game in the first place, how it felt like I signed up for all online hockey manager games out there - but didn't really play any of them. Not saying that GPHM is the perfect fit for everybody. But I'm really glad you like the game so far.

For me it's the best there is at the moment and if I look at what's coming, then I'm really thrilled. Please never stop with GPHM!  :)

Lost 3 games in a row now and 3 times with better stats and 3 times my goalie is playing really bad. Despite the fact that I have 2 top goalies (one is the best in the world). I hope it's just bad momentum.

@ koekefix:   Make sure your goalie isn't tired. (Fitness bar is blue, instead of green)   I find that unless their Endurance is very high, that they are only good for about 2 games, and then they need to rest a game.

Good job, Yann Rock. I can't erase the 13 point deficit in 5 games left, so you will be first. Congrats. But next season in GHL, I will keep (trying to) beating you :P

About 20 games in I had one of the worst teams in the SHL record wise. I bottomed out I think 13th or 14th. However since week 24 (thanks due to some critically needed signings, mostly on D) I have managed to go 22-1-1-8 and climbed from the bottom to 4th in the league. That means through the first 23 games I had a record of 7-2-1-13. That may not look bad but the previous 9 games prior to game 24 my team went a disastorous 2-0-0-7 against mostly mid pack teams with very decicive losses. The league was still rather tight at that point but those kind of losses really drove home the need for immediate help that my team needed. Makes me wonder if I had a more respectable team to start would it be a 3 horse race at the top?
