I certainly didnīt predict that I would take the danish national team to the quarterfinals this term! Wins over the Czech Republic and Great Britain in the last two games, led to a second place finish in the group! Germany is probably the end of the road, but considering how many young sub 300 xp players we have on the team, it is hard to understand how we even made it this far!

Apparently the difference between 300 and 400 xp isnt that great, at least not based on what I have seen the last couple of World Cups!
It would be one thing, if we getting outplayed and just had a hot goalie, but that is actually far from the case, as we havent been outshot by more then 4 shots so far! In fact we outshot our opponents in 4 out of 6 games!

Whelp, down to 13th. I could feel it coming. I wonder what the league rankings for AI and Age are. Anyone with a sponsor pack willing to show the results?

In other news I decided to scrap the current NT lineup and remade it into a new lineup of three lines. It should be interesting to see what the results of that are due to how different the lineups are in terms of the builds and distributions of players that are going from sitting to playing and vice versa.

More changes to the game - mostly to the market. They added a 1 hour market window. Wowsers...

Before this I would go to market every couple days and know that there isn't any player I'm missing with regard to them being on the market. With the 1 hour window, players can go on and off and chances are I wouldn't even know about it. I think this opens the door to more abuse by teams who collude to move players around.

They also took out the 4 days, 5 days, 6 days, and 7 days options.

Well, relegation to league V. (Ugh) is almost a near certainty now. Ran into a lot of teams who bought a lot of declining 200+AI UFA's to fill their team and my young squad couldn't hang. Wasn't going to sacrifice long term plans for quick success.

Stadium is on course to keep growing at the max rate and I plan on being back in IV. after next year. Just throwing out my 17yo goalie for the xp. Hopefully as a 100+AI 19 year old with ~25exp can be enough to keep me in IV., during the next go around.

What in the hell is the point of 1 hour sales? Selling players to friends cheaply is the only thing I could come up with.

It looks like the end of the line for my NC run, facing the Never Nudes. I will certainly take making the Final Four with the group I have though. Every team left has a great manager behind it so i'm happy to have made it here.

You trying to corner me?

I'm trying to skimp on some win bonuses now and save a bit of money. I had hoped playing on high would be enough. Didn't work out for me.

Looks like they took out the 1-hour selling option. Must have had quite a backlash - but from my point of view, it is warranted.

I can't wait for this season to be over so I can relegate. Rebuilding and getting smoked every game is boring...

The 1-hour option was stupid, but I like the 1-day feature they added.

It used to be about once a season - been a while since we've had a crash.

Not trying to corner you. Trying to figure out why my team keeps winning. And so easily for the most part. I'm pulling a Mallard for league games. I haven't changed anything since I started focusing on the WL. It's just weird that my team is playing so much better without my involvement

Thank goodness. That one didn't make any sense.

That's not what he meant. It used to be that the site was inaccessible during the entire update. It would be completely offline for an hour and a half or so.

So I have to wait one more day before I can switch franchise players to sell my current one. The reason is because Kennedy is at 0 days for contract status, so I want his contract to renew so I can put him on the regular market instead of the UFA market.

My first ever playoff series in I.1, and I've drawn Jerphish. This might not go well.

Good luck to everybody in the playoffs!

Heh, I didn't expect Ducky to fall far enough to be in the relegation mix with me!

Ok I've got a tough decision of which YS players to boost. No one looks like a surefire stud, just a whole bunch that could range from potential studs to decent train and sells.

Code:
Name 	          Age Qua (%) Pot (%) Position 	 AI 		
David Jordan 	  17 	 92 	     82 	 Offense 	 56
Norbert Hewitt 	  17 	 85 	     74 	 Defense 	 52
Leslie Whittington 16 	 75 	     76 	 Goalie 	 28
Ron Mcconnell 	  17 	 81 	     79 	 Goalie 	 54
Jordan Alvarado 	  16 	 81 	     65 	 Offense 	 25
Don Mcmillian 	  17 	 84 	     77 	 Defense 	 52
Jordan, IIRC, was pulled as a 16 year old last season and was showing 70+Q and 70+P. So I'm not sure what to think. None of these players showed an AI that would lead me to thank they are a surefire good player (60 AI for 17, 30 for 16). Jordan also was originally a goalie, so I'm sure when pulled there will still be a goalie's distribution.

I'm leaning towards some combination of Jordan, Hewitt, and Mcmillian. Probably split both boosts between two of them and hope one of them is good enough for my team instead of being just another train and sell. Would that be the same thinking for the rest of you?

I found a guy on my team today with 104 Self Control.

That shows you the level of love and care I've been putting into my team the last two years.

Don't knock it, man. That kind of self awareness only comes after years of meditation.
