    I might have mentioned this before ...for S10... Since it falls in 2019...maybe add a Winter Classic game between the LG Bruins vs LG Blackhawks... Promote it as a special event and maybe play it on a Sunday afternoon or a Thursday night ? I'm not sure if there's a way to play it outside which would be awesome. Hopefully at some point they'll add it as a feature again. As for LG, I think it would be a nice touch to the season.

    For the LGCHL ... I'm not sure if anyone has talked about adding another league to even out all the brackets but maybe add SHL or any of the international leagues featured in the game. I'm in favor of this. Good way to keep the league expanding and growing.

    Happy New Year boys!

    Pretty sure you talked about it with the NCAA. Teams had like 5 TCs, expansion sounds scary.

    @Kotkaniemi that's exactly my point. If you aren't "discovered" by time your 45 games are played as a prospect why take the place of someone who may actually be better. A's and V's can get called up at any time based off their performance in the league. Prospects are the ones that everyone is looking for to get good cheap talent. Restricting this tourney to just the P's would remove some of the "buddy league" vibe and become something people will actually be more interested in playing/following. Active owners who want to scout new names will be more likely to apply for ownership, prospects who may not know a lot of people in and around the league will be more likely to join up knowing its a feeder season to get discovered. Honestly, allowing Vets and Amatures to participate just moves the focus from finding new talent to getting buddies together to "win" something.

    I think the level of trust you have in the owners is quite low. The LGWJC cause you basically get a full LG season in a few days, removing the amateurs and veterans removes a big chunk of who you play with in the C. Plus you wanna tell all them As and Vs to fuck off over the holidays? The prospects don't need to get handed a stick to get opportunities. I don't want to sound like a dick but when I play with prospects who haven't played that many games and have been around for a long time, I usually see why that is the case. Plus, when you say the owners and managers would be more interested in watching and using this as scouting, you'll have to explain to me why lowering the the similarity with the C will help. If you remove A's and V's it removes a lot of the similarity with LG. If I'm an owner and I see a prospect can do it against similar players he'd face in the CHL, I'd be much more interested than if I see he can do it against a really different group of players to what he'd face in the C.

    I guess we just view it differently. I agree the level of play is elevated with A's and V's involved. But Most of them have been Roster and involved in regular teams. I expect the WJC to be for those who maybe didn't get a bid, but think they should've. to keep TC's active and involved in the league, and to discover new talent. Vets and Amatures already know now great the league is and how much fun it can be, even if you aren't the best. Recruiting and selling the brand is what I'm thinking here. Limiting it to "new" people I think would do those things. Even tho you are right it would take it away from people who are LG regulars.

    i guess thats why this is a "suggestion" and not hard set law. I would love to see a Prospect only tourney, what ever they call it.

    If the league were to convert to 12 game weeks instead of 9 and have all 3 time slots Sunday to Wednesday each player would be eligible to play 4 games a week where 1 week the team would play 10 games where one line would get the extra game. Shrink the 9 week schedule to 7 weeks, have the trade deadline after week 5 and roster locks after week 6. Your first season on each release would finish before the Xmas break and not have that layoff in between. Taking 2 weeks off the first 2 seasons would give the 3rd season a projected finishing time of late July or early August and give people a month summer break from the game but for the diehards you can run a World Cup tournament for 4 weeks til the next season starts in early September.

    Add CHL league to the LGCHL to even things out... Done call it a day... imo I don't think an ECHL team should have a bye week in the playoffs while everyone else in the league is grinding it out to the next round.

    I don't think saying pretty much the same thing over and over makes them want to adopt your idea. You realize if we have expansion it's not one more league, it's going to be more ECHL and what you don't like will be gone. You need to understand that they couldn't add too many teams at once in order to keep a decent experience.

    Current League:LGCHL PSN

    Situation That Occurred: WHL Scheduling for the East and Central, along with the other two divisions, were a rotation of the same 11 teams every week. So for the 9 games a week it was pretty much the same teams, and mostly on the same nights every week. This is not fun, especially if you were assigned to certain nights. EXAMPLE: A Wednesday only line would face about 4 or 5 teams all season.

    Suggestion for Change:Schedule teams from all WHL divisions and possibly one week that is a OHL vs WHL and Q v ECHL week or something to mix it up.

    I haven’t thought this through much but

    Eliminate one of the CHL conferences and expand the ECHL to the full 28 teams. Put the ECHL where it belongs in between the AHL and CHL creating a 4th tier. This would expand the league slightly depending on which CHL conference was eliminated.

    Current League: LGCHL PSN (and probably every single league)

    Situation That Occurred: This may not be a thing that many people would agree on, but i think its important to mention it.

    The fact that some teams are having ''official'' scouting games without first of all ;
    1) Not having the confirmation of the owners and their gm's for the next season
    2) The Playoffs are not even over
    3) With most players being 1 season contracts, they are still a part of their organisation untill the season is over (Leaves a shades of gray spot when considering tampering players)

    Gives an unfair advantage to teams thoes who are still in the playoffs. A team who knows they're out of the playoff race in November has a net advantage on the team whos still in the playoffs in January, thus giving them more time to scout players.

    Correct me if im wrong, but there is no date written anywhere where management could officially talk to other players when the season is still undergoing.



    (For thoes who say that the teams that are out would need that time to get good.. Even in real life, days before free agency, players cant go out talking to other teams freely unless they have the authorisation of their owners)

    **There will always be behind closed door talks, its inevitable, but i think we shouldnt just ignore the whole case either.**

    Suggestion for Change:


    To clarify, level out the playing field, and to also give more of a realistic approach to the online simulation experience, i recommend to do one the following:

    1) Nothing
    2) Forbid the official ''early bird'' scouting and clarify when it is acceptable to do so
    3) Any other suggestion that could be useful

    Personally I would love to see a seniority for owners in any league be allowed to pick a team of their liking before new owners get assigned new teams it would be an awesome way of rewarding the owners who stay longer

    Allow two agm’s or create a new title called coach or captain to allow for a fourth member of management if wanted, as long as they are prospect so that they are not just given this as protection from call up , it would be an option owners could choose to do allowing one more player to gain some management experience. I currently have a unofficial agm as I did last season also but this would allow him to assist with any site stuff and be able to be involved even more in trading as they would have access to the lgchl managers discord.

    Current League: LGCHL PSN

    Situation That Occurred: Two seasons in a row the WHL Standings have been incorrect according to the WHL Playoff Format, causing a team who thought they "clinched a wild card spot" to find out they were actually eliminated. While a team who thought they were "eliminated from playoffs", found out that they had indeed qualified, and now have to scramble to get their players active again.

    Suggestion for Change: The WHL is a Division/Conference hybrid, meaning the East/Central Divisions make up the Eastern Conference. The B.C./U.S. Divisions make up the Western Conference. Two teams from the Eastern Conference earn Wild Card Spots, and two teams from the Western Conference earn Wild Card Spots. The League Gaming website currently mixes both Conferences together in the following image.
    WHL Standings.PNG
    This part of the standings needs to be divided into a WHL Eastern Race and a WHL Western Race, so that teams in each Conference will accurately know who is actually in the Wild Card race and who isn't.

    The league should make use of the New Player Information forum and move or copy pertinent stickies into there. Xbox CHL does it so I don't know why PSN doesn't do it. I also think that posts have been deleted from there as I remember responding to them, so what's the point of the subforum if nothing is in there?

    Can someone please make a single true guide for new signups for the New Player Info forum? I don't think the tiny things in the "How Do I" tab (which is a tiny unnoticeable button in the top left) or the current stickied posts do this site justice. I've said it before, I'll write it if I have to and a staff member can look through it. If not a single post, something less jumbled than what is currently the CHL Stickied section.

    This all goes back to one fact: LG is so confusing upon entry that is a real turn off for many new signups. And it's even worse if you sign up mid season. Sure, you can ask for help, but why should they have to? Why create more work for seasons to come when you could just link a single created post (if they don't find the thread themselves)? It just seems more efficient to me. If you are not personally recruited by a friend, you will be confused on so many levels. I myself was recruited by charmingdonut back in season 6 from Reddit (we were not friends at all before that) and almost left immediately because I had no idea what the fuck was going on. Like seriously, charming must have thought he was a BOG based on all the questions I asked him in a matter of like 48 hours. The only thing that's changed for addressing new players is that there's now 200 million stickies on the forum page instead of like 10. No one wants to join a league that's supposed to be fun and have to go on a treasure hunt to find basic info about the league. I had a player quit in round 2 (maybe round 1) of the playoffs because he had no idea the league was supposed to be competitive and he didn't like it when people highlighted his mistakes; I guess he thought this was like Facebook where no one gives a shit and everyone sucks. People don't even know they have to actually sign up for the league after registering an account to play. If the league wants to continue to grow in player count (and maintain that player count), making things more clear and concise via a single post (versus having to read multiple posts) would go a long way in making things more understandable. EA putting out trash NHL games repeatedly certainly isn't gonna help keep numbers up.

    TLDR: I think the site needs a makeover for all things new player info related and could benefit from having one complete guide vs. having to read multiple posts for information. If new players want to be kept it should be much easier to find basic information/what to expect than it is now (for a very new signup). Everything is findable right now, but I think new players currently can have a hard time navigating and finding everything, thus discouraging them from wanting to stay active especially as a TC.

    How about any players bid 5m or 6m+ are exempt from getting waived in the Chl. This will protect players from not losing out on their season just because of a dumb owner. Owners need to be held accountable for their big bids.
