This Game is Really Good
This game is so incredible in lots of ways and I’m so happy somebody though of this idea. I have noticed that this game has some issues with saving. Sometimes I’ll be in the middle of a game and if I leave and my phone cuts of for any reason all my progress is lost. Same thing with trades. Also you should have the option of letting the game go through free agency and re signing for you because everybody that plays this game is not a real life general manager and sometimes it’s hard to do the right things and make the right moves in free agency which causes the team to suffer which makes the game way less fun. Those are just a few little things that I don’t like about the game. I do have a couple of request though. One is that we should be able to watch other teams play as well. Like with the Super Bowl. I wanna be able to see what goes on. Also a player creation mode would be really cool or if you could edit the players. Also you should be able to be more than just one team so you can do cool stuff like simulation leagues. And also PLEASE MAKE A NBA GAME LIKE THIS. But anyways this game is really good and much love to the creators.
Great game, some recommendations
Everything I’m looking for in a gm style game. Would make it better if you could manually scout prospects, add some hidden gems, busts, etc. Also adding things like player personalities.. ie a loyal player will ask for less salary, a tough player who won’t get injured, clutch players, leadership attributes etc. also would be cool to have a morale system, as well as an upgrade for your coach because as far as I can tell they’re all the same except for offensive and defensive schemes. Also an idea would be to be able to upgrade your abilities, such as coaching ability, making your players develop faster. Negotiating skill, ability to keep a positive atmosphere, more tactics and other things. Also, ability to turn injuries off, change the salary cap, and maybe add random off field events to give your players more life because right now they seem just like an age and a rating that’s it. One thing I also do not understand is how the contracts work.. the bonus and salary appear to have the same effect on the salary cap for the duration of the contract while the bonus should just affect the cap the year the contract is signed while the salary is the yearly cap hit after that. Just some thoughts. Amazing game however so close to being perfect. Thank you!
Developer Response ,
Hi Robert, thanks so much for the fantastic feedback. A lot of great ideas there, which I’ll add to my backlog! Player personalities and coach depth is something that definitely seems in demand so I’ll try and find a way to work those in in a meaningful way which influences gameplay - a few other things I want to do first though.
On the contracts point, bonuses are spread across the contract as a guarantee. They are only treated differently to salary in the case of wanting to trade or release a player where the team is still liable to pay all of the guaranteed bonus.
Thanks again! Jon
I own every sim there is on iOS, and none have been this complete upon release. There is plenty of room for improvement but I am enjoying it quite a bit. I have noticed quite a few suggestions and I don’t disagree with most of them, more content would be amazing, maybe the ability to customize some stuff (ie team names, players etc.). The only real issues I have seen so far are as follows: not sure if it’s a bug or not, but I seem to constantly lose to winless teams.. when I’m 5-2 and the opponent is 0-7, or 9-3 v 0-12 and I’m higher statistically, I tend to always lose this should be cupcake matchup. Also, maintaining the salary cap can be difficult at times, due to the nature of a larger (53 man) roster and no true breakdown of the cap without scrolling and literally writing them down. Overall I am extremely pleased with this app and as others have stated, it is a great game that fills the need in the manager genre. Baseball and basketball would great also (would purchase without second thought).
