A bit of a rant.
With the other RA's doing a smash up job on covering all the goodies around the US Managerzone area. I thought for a fun piece maybe we could focus on the rumor mill and gossip corner of our world and see if we can't settle some rumors or just create more gossip for everyone.
Our first entry can be found on the forums I'm sure many of you read or commented on this directly but I felt it had to be brought up and milled over. <a href="http://managerzone.com/?p=forum&sub=topic&topic_id=9865220&forum_id=10&sport=soccer"> This Post</a> caught my attention the minute I jumped on the forums. We have yet another person going on about the 3d sim is a waste and how its unfair that every cup costs money and all crew cares about is making things like haircuts and boots for the 3d version of match play. While I do see a point in that its hard to attract new users and sometimes keep older ones when all of the new features have to be paid for. Its also the paid users who allow others to be able to enjoy the game free of charge. So yes maybe you can't join in cups or create friendly leagues but if your after the enjoyment of the game money should make no difference.
Since we are already on the topic of the sim lets keep it rolling. For the first two seasons I played there were constant posts about how this game is dying and in need of a new sim and how managers were sick of losing based on a sim. Well now im into my fifth season as a manger in the gae and we have more sim changes then you can shake a stick at. Before it was we need a new sim and now its how do we adjust to a sim that changes every two months. My answer to this is even if you haven't adjusted or you find it all to be not what you hoped, if nothing else the crew at least has given us something new to react to and base our squads around.
So if you feel managerzone is heading for its doom maybe your right, if you feel its striding to be a better company maybe you are right. The only thing we can be sure for certain is that there are more games to play now and a actual sim which is affected by what we do to it. As far as I can tell three seasons ago thats all anyone actually wanted.
