Guys I love these new NAT jerseys and I want to take the concept a bit further. I've been here for over 13 years and in my opinion the game would really benefit from monthly events. It would involve new unlock-able jerseys each month! It would make players unique. Perhaps Met|MOD or someone else would be willing to create 13 new jerseys (2 in october). Icko It would involve a slight amount of coding on your part but it's almost identical to the new NAT team jersey coding you've just introduced. It would involve you creating a player database page that lists all players who have won an event (relatively simple for you i'm sure). Sponsor pack people would be able to view that page and target those players on the market if they'd like. Think Signature series players in Madden or Legends cards in NHL20. Another reason this would be beneficial is that it would make irrelevant stats that you're already calculating, such as player Rating, relevant again. Once a player unlocks an event jersey, it stays on the player forever. NAT jerseys take precedence over all event jerseys. If a player unlocks a 2nd event jersey then the newest jersey takes precedence (almost identical coding to your new NAT jersey coding icko). There's a lot of randomness to it still so GM's couldn't guaruntee their players get certain jerseys. It works for EA in terms of building hype so lets take advantage of that idea of players being unique.

Tldr: Monthly Events with Unlockable Jerseys that provide a very slight upgrade to the player but makes them unique. These boosts are not game breaking at all. Wlll bring a new excitement to HA each month.

great idea i'm in did you check with Mat if he would be able to provide the content?

icko 02:42:41, 21.08.19 great idea i'm in did you check with Mat if he would be able to provide the content?

I like the idea but only if it's purely cosmetic. Meaning that the players get the cool jerseys but not the proposed bonuses. They seem very RPGish and I don't think that's the direction a hockey management game should take.

I don't like this from the cosmetic point of view either. I would prefer to choose jerseys for my team myself.

thanks Keiris! Just trying to make the game more exciting day to day and maybe sell a few more sponsor packs along the way. I would modify my idea to have 1 player selected per league every Sunday...just to give teams another thing to look forward too. Appreciate the support.

1 player per league selected randomly every Sunday from the eligible players. Every event has a different criteria to be eligible. For example, to be eligible in the January All-Star event a player needs at least 1 star in Hockey Arena and a Rating of great than 5.0.
