Alright everyone, first happy new year! We are doing some pre season last minute roster management before the season kicks off. The rosters need to be cap compliant by January 11th. 23 man limit, 84m cap. If teams do not submit proper waiver lists by this date, similar to last year a list will be posted for you. I know theres a few teams right now that have guys in the ahl that need to clear waivers first before being placed there. Either call them up at this time or you may lose them to waivers. You have exactly 1 week from today.

In other news, there will be no taxi squad as it has no impact on our game, we dont have to worry about travel thus no reason to have the taxi squad. If a player gets covid follow the proper IR/LTIR for how the league places the player. The taxi squad spots on the capfriendly pages will be used as a waivers spot. if you are placing a player on waivers you can put them in that spot and move down if he clears. If the player is claimed, you simply remove from the roster. The taxi squad will ONLY be used for weekly waiver send downs. You cannot use this space for anything other than a holding place for a player that you are placing on waivers.

Lastly we are working on changing the date back for the rosters to lock for scoring purposes. AK we will be contacting you about some formatting and other things to do with the scoring sheet. If anyone has any questions reach out to BOG.

Ok everyone, quick update. We are allowing 2 waiver claims for this month only. All regular claim rules apply, this is in hopes of competitive balancing. We will use the claim list order, but once u claim u go to the end of the line.

We will also open up phase-1 free agent signings being available for trade on Monday. Giving you that day to find trades before having to waive players.
(Phase-1 _ Meaning the league min - 1.5mil signings)

You all need to be cap and roster compliant by Monday at 12pm.

Hockey is back boys! LFG!

We're in the process of creating a Contract Database for our game, where all contracts will be stored in one single spreadsheet that can be accessible for all members of the game. GMs will now have the ability to look up any player's contract status and help keep order during trades, as well as auto-generate Free Agency lists for upcoming offseasons.

We need every GM (over the next week or so, if possible), to go to their team's tab on the below spreadsheet and enter in their player's contract data. Don't worry if you're unsure about some details - we will be auditing the team info as the data comes in. Any major discrepancies could result in fines. If you have any questions about formatting or anything about the sheet, throw a question in the ask BOG thread or send us a message on Twitter.

Update: For "AAV", put the contract's original value. If there is retained salary, you can add that under the retained salary columns. Consult the Example tab for formatting (Max Pacioretty applies to this format)

The season begins tonight and I have a final update on our scoring process for Season 2 of V4. While the calculation methods and appearance of the score sheet will look different, most of the scoring details from Season 1 will carry over. However, there are some new features that you will want to hear about.
Since this stuff is boring for most of you, I’ll start with the part you really need to pay attention to:

WHAT DO I DO?
SET YOUR ROSTER ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH - Your team page serves as your official roster. On the last day of each calendar month, your roster will lock, meaning that the BOG will (after verifying its legitimacy) enter your team EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS, and this roster will be used to calculate the scoring total for your team.

SELECT YOUR COACHING STYLE – This feature is new to v4.2. Take advantage of the strengths of your team by choosing one of the 5 categories for added multipliers. These bonuses are entirely based on your exact lineups (ex. Line 1, Line 2, 2nd pair, etc.) and are laid out in detail below in the “NEW TO V4.2” section (and can be found in the rule book). Use the first line of the “Description” section of your team page to make your selection. For example, type “January Coaching style = Balanced”. This will lock and be recorded on the last day of the month along with your roster. If you do not select a style, “Standard” will be selected by default.

NEW TO V4.2
Coaching styles are a new feature that the BOG wanted to add to make things more interactive and to allow for teams to exploit certain areas of strength that GMs have built their rosters upon. To put it simply, think of it as giving certain lines and pairings more ice and more value. There are 5 coaching styles:

Standard – aptly named, this is a generic usage strategy for a team that leans on its better players but doesn’t break their backs. 10%, 6%, and 4% bonuses to forward lines 1, 2, and 3, respectively. 10% and 6% bonuses to defense pairs 1 and 2, respectively.

Top-Heavy – this strategy is for teams that heavily rely on their top line and top pair. 20% bonus to forward line 1. 20% bonus to defense pair 1.

Balanced – Rolling all 4 lines and 3 pairs? 8% bonus to all 4 forward lines and all 3 defensive pairs.

Heavy Top6F – self-explanatory, good for a team that gets their top 2 lines out there as much as possible. 15% bonuses for forward lines 1 and 2. 6% and 2% bonuses to defense pairs 1 and 2.

Heavy Top4D – you should get it by now… 20% boost to defense pairs 1 and 2. 6% and 2% bonuses for forward lines 1 and 2.

Pro tip: Don’t stress about your selection here, these bonuses will only swing your total team score by a couple of percentage points. Just pick based on where you think your team strength lies. You may not ask the scorekeeper which selection to use.

SCORING DETAILS
Each skater will earn points for their team based on the amount of goals, primary assists, secondary assists, individual expected goals (ixG), hits, blocks, faceoff win/loss, penalties drawn/taken, on-ice goals for/against, on-ice expected goals for/against, and expected goals for/against relative to teammates, and time on ice.

Primary power play points are valued at 80% of the worth of a point scored in any other manner (i.e. EV, PK) and secondary assists on the power play are worth 65%; stats while playing against an empty net are ignored. On-ice stats are for 5v5 play only.

Each goalie will earn points for saves and lose points for goals against. They will earn or lose points for goals saved above expected (GSAx). Also, actual save percentage vs expected and vs league average are used. Goalie stats are counted for all situations. If a goalie’s stat line puts him into the negative (mostly due to small sample sizes of extreme underperformance) he will earn zero points.

Points are totaled each period for each line/pair and are multiplied by the bonuses based on your coaching style selection.

Healthy scratches earn 30% of their point totals.

The scoring formula is based on Game Score and Game Score Value Added (GSVA) models by Dom Luzszcszcsczsczczsyn, with a few tweaks and workarounds.

SCORING SCHEDULE
The scoring is broken into 4 quarters – one per month – for this shortened season. Any roster moves (including line changes or healthy scratch swaps) after the last day of each month will not go into effect until the following month.
January – scoring is tabulated from Jan 13th until Feb 13th. Rosters lock Jan 31st for this period.
February – scoring is tabulated from Feb 14th until Mar 13th. Rosters lock Feb 28th for this period.
March – scoring is tabulated from Mar 14th until April 13th. Rosters lock Mar 31st for this period.
April – scoring is tabulated from Apr 14th until May 13th (or the end of the season). Rosters lock Apr 30th for this period.

(This note is also posted in the Official Scoring Thread)

We are still in the process of completing our contract database, but we are still missing some or all of the data from about half the GMs. See my prior announcement below for its purpose and benefits. It's pretty important that we get this handled sooner rather than later. We are going to set a hard deadline of next Sunday, January 24 to have your sheet filled out or we will start handing down penalties. The link has been posted on your team pages and is listed down below. If you have any questions about formatting or anything, let us know.

If you're not sure if you have fully completed your team, the list of teams at the end of this post have completed their team.

Attention ALL GM'S:

Rosters will be imputed for scoring on Sunday Jan 31st at 12:00 NOON EST.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

SET YOUR ROSTER ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH - Your team page serves as your official roster. On the last day of each calendar month, your roster will lock, meaning that the BOG will (after verifying its legitimacy) enter your team EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS, and this roster will be used to calculate the scoring total for your team.

Use the first line of the “Description” section of your team page to make your selection

IF you do not select a style, “Standard” will be selected by default.

THANK YOU!!

Also please ignore the old rule for waiver claims, of editing your claim every time.
Just make a new post for every claim. As long as we can sticky the order to the top of each page it will still work just fine. And nobody listened anyway lol
