View Full Version : Do you play MZ Hockey regular?
I log into the MZ Hockey all the time, but looking at the forum on MZ there's only really a had full of others that do the same.
What is the reason, LIve is free, loads of goals and everybody has started at the same time, making things more fairer?
Well maybe because the sim is pathetic at the moment. It's decided by how many friendlies are played a week. If you play none you'll win! That's why the inactive teams are doing so well at the moment.
I never play any friendlies and I'm 2nd last in the league :|
better change your philosophy there, Ponte :crazyboy:
I'm a big hockey fan but the sim is pretty stupid... seriously, tactics for hockey? :rolleyes:
Maybe you should look at your league first rony...
Last 4 teams are considered inactive (Including you). Fourth placed team Handsworth have lost 2 in a row and do play nearly all midweek matches. Third placed team Predacons are playing ,at the very most, half of the friendlies they could be playing. Noticed they have won 3 in a row... started winning when the simulator came out. Second placed team Delamere FC are inactive... Wolf Pack have started to play friendlies. They have lost 2 in a row.
If you also check the hockey forums you will find 50 other people who agree with this 'philosophy' and 1 exception. Two if you consider yourself an exception but I doubt you could looking at the above info.
EDIT: Also, you have won 2 in a row and you're inactive...

head to head against larry
25 goals for... 19 against....
if i had a decent keeper... my team would be a good one..
Yeah ive sold all my guys because i was in debt. Im remaking my team now, and im trying to make them good :)
How did you manage to go into debt in Hockey? I can't help but make money!
:jambo: :jambo: :jambo: :jambo: :jambo:
Same here. I bought a player for £240k or so (now my best alround player), and now I have about the same to spend... wish it was that easy in football, well it is, but in hockey my expenses are low. :p
Hey Chris just bought my first player in hockey. 244k for a 90k player! Very good in passing, checking and excellent in skating.
Need to work on Stamina and quickness now.
:bob: :bouncy: :bob:
Mine has a few stats on 4, a couple on 2 which I need to work on, and passing and checking of 6. Two days later and it was 7 checking, not maxed. :jambo:
I'm just hoping he's not maxed out too. he's only 21 so there's a lot of time to train him up. I just need a few coaches now, none of them want to come to me. I offered one over 10k and he still said no!
Strange, some other guy must've bid even more. :S
My player's still only 20 :D
Maybe he said no because I bidded that certain coach 15k ;)
I log in once a week to check my league game. Not sure how much money I have. Probably about 50k same as I left it months ago.
Well that 15k coach can't be doing much good as I've just looked at your league and your in the relegation zone, all be it only just.
You must have a few bob in the bank, as you haven't bought anybody yet or spent much on your stadium, but at least you play friendliesmost days.
I think MZ in going to take off next season, so it's best you get things sorted out now.
PS Apart from the Hurricans, I'm kicking all the Superleague teams arses. 9-2 Ramerpool, 11-5 and 5-1 against Chris Boston and 8-1 and 6-2 against Phippard's lot. Why aren't I top of the league?
Same as Ash, login once or twice a week to check league match and accept a few friendlies to bring in some money. Only bought one player so far, a Swedish dude with 4 checking.
Well I started with a 3 puck goalie and now that goalie is close to 5 puck keeping. I'd call that major progress from my coach. The reason I am in the relegation zone is because of my players are all needing rest. This is becasue the inactive teams dont play any friendlies while teams who do end up with a team full of tired players. You will find that since the new sim came out, the inactive teams/rubbish teams have won the last 3 matches. There are some exceptions though. I have put many bids in for players including a 7 puck goalie but was outbidded in the dying mintues. I am not playing any friendlies this now until my players recover from their fatigue. I haven't spent much on my stadium because I am saving a sum of money up at the moment so that I can spend money on players when the sim is actually fixed to a reasonable level. It's garbage this now. I've only lost 1 out of the last 25 friendlies yet unable to get a win in 3 league matches. I also beat the Ice Bears in the league, they're only loss in the league up until this week. That was before the new sim suprisingly... :rolleyes: By the way, they just started playing friendlies and lost to an inactive team.
I only have 6 players who say they want to play, the rest need rest. I seem to remember Crew saying something about the form and here is what they say:-
Some of you choose not to play hockey friendlies because of your players "need rest".
The form doesn't work correctly, today it takes too long to get turn a player in need of rest into one that wants to play, and vice versa. Since you cannot do very much to affect the form, we have chosen to reduce its influence during the matches.
The form has today very little effect, and you can use your tired players in friendlies without much worry. We will keep the form effect reduced until we have resolved the issues with how the form is updated.
So there you go. If you don't play friendlies you are just losing money.
:jambo: :fluffy: :lui: :bob: :dragan: :alex: :bouncy:
Sorry forgot, that was in the news on 2003-11-14 19:44.
Hmmm I have about 70 people on the forum who disagree with that. Getting beat by the inactive bottom team twice doesn't say much for it. My players who need rest are sluggish only a few minutes into the first period. Only the players who want to play can keep up a reasonable amount of stamina. Crew have even admitted themselves it has to do with the players needing rest.
Weel that's what Crew says, horses mouth and all that. Anyway check my recent results out, I think my team is doing ok.
I've sent you a double friendly for the 11th, please accept them
I've like basically never logged in, and I'm not actually doing to badly(H) :p
As I said before you are just losing money if you don't play and therefore losing touch with the managers who started early.
I might still get relegated this season, but I should still have a very good foundation to get back into that Superleague.

Nah i only was in major debt, because when i registered Rami said since they werent charging people, i should have 16 youths, but they never came, and i never changed it back.
Then i logged in 2 months later and was 4weeks in debt :o
That's right, it took the money for the set up charge, but never took any money for the youths wages. That's because they hadn't arrived.
I think the youths arrived between the 1st and 3rd week of the season. So if you didn't play any friendly games then you would have money problems.
Rami was right about getting youths, I would say 6 or 7 of my youths were better than the spuds I had originally!(C)
In the superleague though Pauly all teams are pretty much active so all have the same advantages and disadvantages when it comes to this issue. In ym league there are 4 active and 4 inactive teams. The inactive teams are firing full pelt while the actives are struggling. I'm playing the Ice Bears at their stadium this week, I honestly think I am the favourite because of the new sim change.
i don't care, my answer to the poll would be all 4....... i registered in the top division in australia, and im coming last with no wins last time i checked :evil:
Ponty mate, I played an inactive team today in the league and beat them 9-2. :)
Don't understand it + its boring but thats cuz I Don't understand it :D
football all the way :rockman:
i log in regularly because i am in the NHL and mostly everyone is active there and the games are usually good ones, but I lost today
ice hockey is too complicated but my football team decided to "invest" and form a team in it :p I have no idea about tactics and plays so i just put players here and there and hope for the best! I am coming 2nd in my league! (div 3)
