How come during the winter Olympics there no mail messages after games? I cannot even find a group standing screen either. Am I just missing it? Also when I hover over the calendar during the winter olympics I get the wrong team showing up

Do you have the Winter Olympics news subscription off? (see Manger Options, news settings are at the bottom.) They do generate stories like normal games would.

To see the standings screen, go to World-Select Tournament and select the Olympics, then click on Standings in the world menu. If the tournament is underway or completed, you'll get the standings. For previous years, you can see them on the history tab (tournaments completed in-game only, we're working on adding the other histories.)

We'll check the calendar problem, we had those issues in a couple of other places but hadn't seen that one yet.

playing a game

Is there a way to see who the opponent's lines are on the ice so when coaching a team, you can line match? It would be nice to see all the info on the game screen. Thanks.

Is there a way to get a player to stop feeling isolated?

You can either bring in more players that have a language in common with him, or wait for him to learn the local language (the time that takes will vary from player to player, although an average player should pick up the lowest useful level in a year or so.)

I had been messing around with tactics in order to match up better with teams in the playoffs, and now even though my global passing setting is set to medium-high, my individual units all have their passing bar set to the lowest and i cannot adjust it back up during actual games.

I let the AI reset my tactics but its still happening, anyone know what I did here or why that is?

As far as I know, as long as you don't have "Use these settings" checked it doesn't matter and that the AI uses the global settings.

It's a display bug in the unit tactics screen, we're aware of it and will be fixing it.

Hi Jeff,

The release change list mentioned that you'd started re-rating historical players in accordance with current rating standards. Which seasons have been re-rated so far?

I've been going in the approximate order the players were originally created, so starting in the late 40's and I'm up into the 70's now. But I also often make changes in specific players if I see something that looks really off in a test, so there are many players in other years who've had improvements. I'd have liked to have been a little farther along at this point, but the staff database took me longer than I expected, so that ate into the time I had for the players this summer.

Shouldn't the Takeover Team button be removed? I'm already GM of my team!

The events cannot be edited at this point, correct? I want to use the Memorial Cup in an historical league. Sorry for asking again....

You still have the option of taking over other teams.

Is there a way to change my news settings so I’m notified when someone has an injury and they’re not available for games? I get news every time there’s a long term injury or a Short term injury for a 3 star player or not but I’m not getting anything for short term injuries for depth guys.

Manager - Options - Exit Auto-Play (bottom-right corner), then you can adjust which injury lengths you get warnings for and, on the next line, whether you get them for minor injuries and, if so, how serious the minor injury needs to be to trigger the warning.

I noticed this in 5, and it still persists in 6 - perhaps there's a reason for it.

During the regular season you can click on the score in the box (lower left mgrs home page) (see circle on attached image) and it takes you to the score sheet for that game.

During the playoffs, the link does not work. Clicking does nothing.

Why is that?

Tks, awesome game.

How do I pull my goalie? Love the game although I'm looking forward to
the drag and drop getting fixed.
