  1. Hello everyone, Just a quick update today that I meant to make after the draft but it's been a busy time so I kept forgetting. Starting in S76 we'll be changing the rules regarding GM's drafting their own players. Originally when the rule was introduced to separate GM's from their players it was done with the intention of having no link whatsoever. If you wanted your player, you had to draft them or trade for them like any other. This did get changed before being announced however to the rule that everyone has thus far known of a first round pick can be used to auto-draft your play

  2. It’s London Baby! The London United are off to an impressive start to their 75 season. As an expansion team London spend the last two seasons at the bottom of the league standings; things are about to change. When the off-season began, GM of London United McWolf made a huge splash acquiring Chad Magnum (16 points in 21 games) and Erik Killinger (19 points in 21 games). These additions have proven to be genius as they have added leadership on and off the ice as well as produced immediately. London’s star studded defence core and solid goaltending is driving this team r

  3. So on the 13th of October 2020, I had formally announced a goal of having more rep points than @VHL Games in this status update here: https://vhlforum.com/profile/4010-jigglygumballs/?status=4950&type=status And on Monday, November 23 2020 , I had achieved that goal. https://vhlforum.com/profile/4010-jigglygumballs/?status=5172&type=status Only for my achievement to be robbed by that damn bot. Nowadays, It's a back and forth between me and @VHL Games. I want to formally announce my rivalry against VHL Games in this short post. A declaration

  9. She tried to work up her nerve. She had to say something. She had to warn someone, anyone on the team. The equipment had been sabotaged. When she came in before the game the next day it was obvious that the hockey sticks had very thin, almost undetectable, slices cut into them. They would break, they would all break, with very little use. They would have a hard time winning the game if all their sticks were malfunctioning all game. So, she’d been trying to work up the nerve to say something. The problem was she was sure that if she did then the blackmailers would blame her for having done so.

Unfortuantely, we had some technical issues (fuck you, Craig), so we'll be doing a part 1 & 2 for these folks. We chat about their boomer history and life in the VHL with the portal! I'm looking forward to following up with these folks soon! @Victor and @Peace are eligible to claim this podcast for one week each, as @Spartanand I won't be claiming it.

  12. With the new month coming, we're getting the magic and fury ready for the Victory Fighting Championship #2. It was recently released that there's going to likely be only 1 event every single month with the exception to some bonus events that may or may not come in the future. With all the excitement that has happened and the anxiety behind the yet to be released, absolute dynamite cards that are coming up, the CEO of VFC continues to branch out with his investments. A few months ago, the Seattle Bears organization branched out into the restaurant business and have periodically released new men

  13. Just go back to the old way. The correct way. GMs get their player for free. If they go inactive a new player/GM is acquired for a draft pick, recreates, or joins in FA.

    WJC Commissioner Hired

    *NEWS FLASH* After the promotion of long-time WJC commissioner Acydburn to VHLM commissioner, the hunt for a new (co-) top dawg for the most prestigious tournament around began. Many excellent applicants applied, and a shortlist of the creme de la creme was created. With the original announcement being buried in the Job Posting thread, it's worth announcing this historic news in its own article. The new commissioner of the WJC is... I'm so so so pumped to be back working with the minors. Life happened this summer and I had to step away from my happy

  15. Ya, this is inaccurate in so many ways. Lots of people have friendships on this site and would happily jump ship in FA. We allow AGMs to move freely and some people choose to move to their own teams while others diversify. If GMs do their homework and ask players if they will move after their rookie year why is there any reason to restrict GM player movement? This is another case of you trying to negate what you see as potential abuse but let’s be honest you’re just infringing on GM’s player rights. If They want to find a way to their team you seem determined to make them pay, even though you

  17. I'm not sure I fully agree with this change. I understand why it was done, but I don't see why you wouldn't allow for some mitigated way to take your own player rather than fully opening it up. Could be top 8, like omg suggested, or even making it require a lottery pick. At the same time it is a 'fair' change. I suppose it just means there is no link between GM players and their teams whatsoever. Honestly, why even have FA rules for GM players at this point? That is kinda bs to me. If the whole point is to not allow any unfair or guaranteed link between a GM and their

  18. It was considered but ultimately we felt like that still means a lot of judging quality of GM players unfairly. Some may be a top 8 guy but some might not. Having them be in the market as any other player would be means the market dictates their value, not the rules.

  19. You could compromise it, like a top 8 pick is required to secure automatic rights to your own player. Means struggling teams will be able to get their GM player without much issue but playoff caliber teams would need to make some moves to get them.

  20. As the beginning of Loic Trepanier's career was not the best he ended up putting two wins in a row for his team with great stats. He played for a second time against the best team in the league this time taking the win away from Philadelphia with a 4-3 win with a .912 save percentage. His career stats are now with a percentage of0.895 and GAA of2.51, he showed his team that he was able to put up some great games and be a great goaltender, he is showing great potential as he is ranked being the second goalie drafted in the season 76 draft. Trepanier is working hard on his abiliti

  21. I guess there were two real options here: either you have to use your native pick on the GM player, or you just open the draft up completely. Both are better and harder to exploit than being able to trade down all you want and pick your GM player as late as possible. Neither is perfect and I can see where there might be some issues that come up with GMs not having their own player reserved if they want him, but opening the draft up completely is unquestionably the fairest way to handle it. I think this was the right change.

  24. I thought making teams pick your player at your original draft slot would have been fine. I have no real incentive to recreate immediately anymore so I guess this takes a chunk out of my point task workload.

    A Decleration of War

    This online reaction abuse has to stop, things are corrupt on the forum and within the ranks of the bot mainframe agency. Went on a walk down at the park today and noticed several JigglyGumballs reactions in the water, either VHLers are trying to dismantle the Gumballs or the bots are rising up. You got my support against the malicious acts of the BMA and I'm paying the best investigators in the world to figure out where the crimes are coming from.

  44. 1) London has started the year 3-0. At this current rate, they will never lose a game. Realistically, what do you think London's final record is? Well, a bit late but yes, we did! I think we finish the season in a good spot. Currently doing very well. I say we finish with somewhere between 40-45 wins. 2) Have you ever actually visited London in real life? If so what was your favorite / least favorite part? I haven’t but my girlfriend went right before we started dating. She loved it, ill go someday. 3) Who is your favorite teammate? H

    Credit to @ZP16 for giving me the idea for this with his article about a day in the life of Kankkunen. This is how Linus Zetterstrom spent his day this Friday, four days before the VHL Draft. 6:30 A.M. Zetterstrom is up before the sun in Malmo, where he is staying at his parents' house while he prepares for the draft. He gets dressed, brushes his teeth, and heads to the practice facility of the Malmo Redhawks in his "new" used Honda Civic. He still has ties with the Redhawks organization from his SHL time ther
