Question, how playable is the Historic part of the game and is it enjoyable, since that's what I have the most interest in. Also, when using the historic mode, do You have the option of using the real life draft picks or re-doing each draft as You go?

Actually, that is going to be the most interesting mode, at least for me, of course along with KHL due to my team joined KHL.

Imagine drafting, if you play with Montreal, Savard Denis instead of Wickenheiser...or losing just to get Lemieux to your team.

Historical mode will be my primary mode (along with KHL). Actually when this game comes out I am worried how my social life will look like and how the hell I will do at college.

This is the part that has me on the fence. Why pay for a beta when you don't even know if by September they decide to scrape the project and no refund would be available.
They are updating it continuously, its getting better. This is more of a question do you want to support this developer in the hopes that the game becomes like OOTPB eventually. OOTPB is a game with a long development that keeps getting better and better.

They won't scrape it, this isn't a major game studio. Its a small team that will see the game through, the guy who is making the game started this as his hobby.

I don't think there is. You will just have to play around with it and figure everything out.

There's a bunch of stuff on the forums, no complete guide yet as far as I know.

Is it still unplayable? Balls. I tried it the day it went on pre-sale, and haven't touched it since because of that. Was hoping it'd be closer to a finish product since, you know, release is in a month.

It's really irritating that they are using time and effort on historical play-mode, fictional leagues and all that ******** when the game itself has obvious lacks and the release date is near. Why not skip all that nonsense for now and try to make a workable hockey manager game? Those features could be implemented at later editions once the main pieces of the game are properly put together.

(I'm by no means bashing the game and its developers, just criticizing their priorities which are totally off IMO)

It's much better than first build. It gets frustrating, though, when I can't even complete an offseason because the game crashes everytime trying to get past July 1st.

The problem with that is that the most vocal sector of the fans/posters on the official site are the historical replayers.

I'm all about the customization stuff, but the game has to be playable first for me to be willing to spend all the time and effort it takes to create a world of leagues...I'm not going to do that if the game is just going to crash in the 5th off-season every time.


I probably won't be spending much time with it until the 3rd or 4th post-release patch as it looks right now. I still have extremely high hopes going forward, but the game has a lot of work to be done right now.

On the new build I didn't touch anything and just let it go and sim...the Penguins lost the final 38 consecutive games of the season because they kept icing 40 year-old cast-offs from Russia and 18 year-olds (Crosby flanked by Troy Josephs and Vitali Yachmenev at the end of the season), the President's Trophy was won by the Sabres, and the Stanley Cup by the Hurricanes...and then it crashed in the first off-season. Yeesh.

My experience on the latest build was the same, Big. The Pens sent their entire roster to Wilkes Barre, except Sid and Geno, and signed a bunch of scrubs. Ended up falling to last in the league.

I am seriously doubting that they can possibly get this game into a playable condition in time for its scheduled release. Too many game-breaking issues, so little time.

Yeah, I checked the roster after the draft...5 players on the NHL roster (both goalies, Crosby, Malkin, and Paul Martin) and roughly 100 players in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, almost all 35+ years of age...most of which haven't sniffed the NHL in a decade, if ever, and had played numerous games with the Penguins as part of a tryout contract.

That's not a great thing to see happening to multiple people this close to release.


My favorite was Mike Craig, a 43 year-old who hasn't had regular work in the NHL since 1996-97 and played in Switzerland for a decade before retiring a year ago, played 7 games for the Penguins.
