As I mentioned in my last blog post before I went on vacation, a revamp of the old Manager License Challenge was underway. And it’s now done, we have new shiny Manager License (without the “challenge”)! And well, you’ve heard me say it before and you’ll hear it again – but this truly feels like the best change ever.
The new ML is more like a tutorial then the old one, and we have focused on giving the new user better aid and more – and better – game advice. The tedious and annoying parts that existed in the old MLC are removed, and now you also have to actively finish a task to get your reward (in the old MLC some challenges were completed just by visiting a page, so often challenges were completed without the user even knowing about it).
A little bit more detailed, on the Manager License page there is a list of all the tasks (17 all in all).
Clicking on a task opens up information about what’s it about and what to do. And when a task is completed you collect your reward for the task (clicking the pile of money) on this page.
On the page where the user is meant to complete a task, there is a help box with more detailed instructions and game tips. Like this one for example:
What we’ve also done is a welcome screen (before the user gets his team) followed by a short tour around the site as soon as the team is active (team is active after only a few minutes). This tour is very linear; it takes the new user by the hand to meet his players, set up a preparation match for some instant action and also shows where to find the new Beginner’s guide (a short guide to Hattrick with tips on what to do, and what not to do, in the beginning).
All in all, with these improvements the start of a manager career has been given a much better feel and it’s much clearer what’s expected of you as a new manager. I hope it will show as well.
Great news !
This new ML sounds very good, even if we still have no such informations about it and especially the new required steps to complete it.
For sure, it will be very useful for the beginners !
Thanks! You can actually see the tasks (allthough not the help boxes on corresponding pages) if you go to /Club/Manager/ManagerLicense.aspx when logged in.
Thanks for the info. I’m going to investigate the infos.
Is a link on manager page (or elsewhere) pointing to this page for every manager ? I didn’t found it. If not, it would be good to insert it (interesting for those that are involved in helping beginners).
Congratulations. It takes a lot of work to make a clean, simple and efficient design. I love the Hattrick artwork, the cartoon-like guys, badges and avatars. Please keep them forever.
Looks awesome! Keep the good work!
Hope to see the new staff mechanic implemented some day!
Mhm… I can’t see it at all…
Did you copy+paste the link from my earlier comment, to see the list?
We can see all the challenges, but can we see somewhere the beginner’s guide you mentioned?
Sure, just visit the help section and you’ll see it in the left menu.
And? Is this new License having an effect on the stay rate of newbies? It is depressing to see the numbers of users declining after I wake up each day…
Still too early to say.
I’m gonna miss the stars in the lineup
boa noite estou muito satisfeito com novo regulamento, ficou mais deficel de conclui os desafios.
Why not make the little Manager Licence symbol next to a users name clickable to go back to the Manager Licence page, even after full completion? 🙂
– The system needs more money in it.
– Youth Academies give little to no money nowadays, while the classic pull system give no money at all. People are giving up both systems, or just keeping the academy system to enjoy the management of a “second team”. But many are loosing the interest in it.
Why don’t you rework the Youth’s systems, in order to update the system to the level of current prices and market, while injecting more money in the system?
Does any of the HTs still uses the classic pull system? You just can’t sell most of the players, because even the ones that used to be good, nowadays have no value in the market, and don’t even pay the 22k/week of costs. The training speed was updated, but you forgot to update the youth systems aswell. I’m pretty sure 80% to 90% of the people who still use to old system is loosing money. The academy is not that bad, but it’s not good either.
My 2 cents.
