I finally found all 32. Here are some of the more obscure ones:

There's one in the guide. NOT the guide in the sports information page. But go to the PPM homepage, information, guide.

There's another in the U17 team's page. I don't remember if it's in the calendar, or players, or something else. I don't believe this one exists in the handball page since there's no U17 team. It may be there in hockey.

I don't remember which egg it was, but it was located IN the easter egg basket on the banner. That was actually kind of funny.

Other than that, just make sure you go through a lot of tabs, including the ones on the homepage.

Yeah, I used that function a lot when i was more active on my hockey and soccer teams. Handball it happens i change the teams a lot based on the opponent so I dont use it much.

You can still do this. At the bottom of your lineup page is a drop down menu. You can choose to load any lineup that you've used in the last seven days. It's not as convenient as the automatic lineup changes with the ProPack, but it's a good option. I used it all the time before I got a PP.

So, a little bit of everything. I think my expenses are less than yours though, so it probably works out in the end.

125M Player Salaries
78M Staff Salaries
77M Facilities Maintenance
78M Stadium Maintenance
31M Other (mostly extra player fees)
(acquisitions and compensations don't really count)

As far as new sports, I was really hoping they'd go with different timescales in each sport, since a 16 week season is way too long for a lot of people. I'd like to see a sport with 1 season per month or so. That'd make for a lot less real life time to catch up.

my soccer team is not much far this season from you guys ...

Income: 349M
Tickets: 140M
General: 102M
Media: 82M
Souvenir: 16M
VIP: 9M

Expenses: 209M
Player: 51M
Staff: 61M
Facilities: 17M
Stadium: 80M

Revenue: 140M
With this average revenue, it would take me more than 15 seasons to max out the facilities and arena. And during this period id have no money to buy players.

I have about the same Staff and Stadium costs. Income is about 2.5 less.
The only thing i can improve is to reduce staff cost.

Even if i was given, as gift, your great players, id not afford to pay them!!!

Actually, few weeks back i found an interview with Ludisplijto on Croatian PPMagazine and he said that seasons in basketball will be shorter.

we dont necessarily need to play an opponent 2x (or 4x)

Handball, for example could be played with 26 matches only on the same system of 4 matches per week. The regular season would instead of 91 matches be done with 46 days. Add 20 days of playoffs and we have 66 days.
Reduce it from 14 to 13 or 12 and we sure have it done in 2 months!!!!! Although i think it could be done in 60 days with the current 14 teams model.

For soccer and hockey they could change to have just one match against an opponent instead of 2. That would be the solution that would require less coding to change the system. Although i'd rather it be done in a new server starting from season 1.

Gotta have home and away. ☺. Increase it by one league game a week. Hockey I wish they did best of 5 for the playoffs. For me it is not the length of time but the number of wasted days on a friendly game. One drawback on shorter season is players and SA there will be more turnover and well the curse of a bad SA will be horrible on OTR loss.

The only delimiter is the length of time to play the nc, international tournaments.

many leagues dont have home and away matches. some have but not even number: read: NBA

Or NFL where not all matches have home and away ...

just to give example of american leagues.

soccer and hockey have tons of wasted friendlies id agree but handball i think it is on the right amount. 4 league matches per week plus champions/cup winners league and national going on reduce the friendlies earlier in the season.

As i mentioned at ppm site, D2/D3Dn should also have their versio of champions or whatever for their best teams to play at and get busy.

I hate to post my expenses because it's embarrassing that I pay 1.4M in too many player fees. But I rarely seem to care enough to do something about it. I guess because I make so much freaking money that it doesn't really matter

155M Player Salaries
112M Staff Salaries
77M Facilities Maintenance
101M Stadium Maintenance
93M Other (mostly extra player fees HOLY ****!)
538 TOTAL (minus player acquisitions)

Wow. Even with my stupid player fees, I'm still making almost twice as much as I'm spending. Excluding the market stuff.
My expenses include:
Maxed stadium with all but 5 accessories.
The four at the bottom (car park, scoreboard, etc) are all 3/5.
Big Four facilities are maxed.
Other facilities are level 12, 10 & 13.
Staff includes-
100/100 Coaches, Physios, and one sporting director.
Two managers with 100 Marketing.
SD with 100 Youth, and one with 100 Player training.
Custodians and Physicians are around 60/60.

So I'm almost maxed out on everything. Why on Earth would it be possible to make twice as much as it could possibly cost with nearly everything maxed?

That would be nice. Maybe not a month long season though. That would be so fast. Players would need to be replaced one a year. Okay, maybe that isn't so bad. I really liked Hockey Arena's 70 day seasons. Maybe a little bit shorter than that would be good.

I agree with tesco, we need the home and away. There's too much riding on some games not to give each team home field advantage.

I complained about 3 games per week in hockey almost as soon as I started playing because I was used to HockeyArena's 4 games per week. vlady said they needed those days off for the NC/IntlCup/WC type matches. It's too late to change it now. They'd have to reset everything to season 1.

112 day seasons are exhausting sometimes.

Just make those tourneys more exclusive. Or do like bulls said and make more divisions in those tourneys.

I actually really like bulls idea. I want more and more teams earning more OTR. Also, anyone participating in an Intl Cup is removed from the NC. The top teams get too much free OTR in the NC.

Afraid not. Only that there will be more league games in a week. So probably like in handball

Or they could just "pause" hockey and soccer for a week to make the transition to the newer code/system. Also one thing i don't understand why not change arena construction dates like in handball, 1k tripple only 70 days, upgrade less days. I don't think it would be that hard. Also they could just increase expenses of facilities like in handball, though construction cost should stay same since top teams already have everything built.

I wouldn't mind some tournaments for lower league teams. OR that CL/CWC teams can't play in NC, that could move those two competitions on the same day and that is one extra day in the week for something else.

On a side note, all of my players from S3 in handball kept their CL at 6/6!!
Sold some players yesterday and now i have 80M to finally buy myself a solid goalie! It would be nice if i pulled one... ()... but we all know that is not going to happen.

You know what drives me bonkers... When you search on the market for a player based on Q and as soon as you sign him they all drop 20%.... It should remain the same until scouted.... Ugggh..

Market Q% 73/77/61/80/75/77/62/71 for a nice mid 70% for a back
Signed Q% 56/60/44/63/58/60/45/54 for a nice mid 50% for a back
Scout Q%

Serious drop. I have HR 10 and scouting at 25%

That is a 20% drop across the board in every ability.

At least he was only 120k

I don't really buy unscouted players anymore (or without Qs in chat or asking manager in mail), at least not for my core players. One thing i don't like is people putting players on the market for only 2 days, and if you don't filter search the market every day you can't scout in time.

Also, i think i asked this before, does anyone know for sure when unscouted Qs change in handball? If i knew better i'd say every second Wednesday...

Sho: 25 (-6)
Def: 27 (-4)

selling Tubbs will put my team out of playoffs talk i guess.

About market ....
That is why i often scout players before buying them. the cheap ones i really dont care if quality is or is not what i expected. I go mostly for the current attributes. anything else is bonus

Shooting is skewed because my backups played 52 minutes of the game.
