I used to love playing LG. Played quite a bit. There are two reasons I lost interest and stopped putting energy into it: 1) Small changes, year after year, while keep game-breaking aspects and bugs while adding more of them. Being a goalie is a joke. It is a shame because as someone who plays goalie in actual hockey, I LOVE it. 2) Cliques and skill. I won't name names. But I've found that people in the NHL and AHL levels are more interested in playing with their friends, regardless of skill level, and dictating how it goes from there. I think a re-evaluation of how people qualify for the AHL and NHL may be an idea. Or at least the NHL. I could see the CHL and AHL being more casual levels, but then making the NHL highly competitive for the people that like that sort of thing. It really reminds me of X1 (yea, shoot me now) back when they had their population surge and had an NHL and AHL. Where anyone could be anywhere and a small group of people won it all from the start. It is nice we all want to play with our friends, but there are times where is just doesn't fit. TL;DR: I think we need to make a competitive level and a casual level. (Competitive could be more cutthroat, like produce results or risk losing spot). Beats having game requirements and very similar rules applied to all three leagues where the difference is the LG staff, team names and jerseys.
