VHLM Newsletter - 27th Edition

Recommended Posts

Hi there and welcome to another edition of the VHLM Newsletter! There's a lot of people who will be getting tagged into a newsletter for the first time, so here's a quik breakdown of what we look to cover in each edition:


Uncapped TPE Opportunities - Any time there's a one-off or once-a-season point task available to enter, you'll find out about it in the early headlines of the article.

- League Recap - The middle of the Newsletter is generally based around keeping you up to speed with what's going on around the league, be that changes to how the league works, new features or how the current VHLM season is progressing.

- TPE Earning Guide - The bottom section of the Newsletter follows the same format each week. There, you will be provided with the links you need to get to the regular TPE earning activities. 


As always, I’d like to kick things off by telling you all about the VHL Discord. A lot of you are already in this and can probably attest to how helpful it’s been, but if you aren’t in it already you should definitely give it a shot, especially if you have any questions about the league as that will be the quickest place to get them answered! Like the last VHLM Newsletter, some of this newsletter will re-tread on old ground as, with this being a VHLM newsletter, there will inevitably be new members reading this for the first time that won’t be aware of what was in previous newsletters. So what I’ll do is put a bold *NEW* next to any information specifically made for this newsletter so players who have read these before know where to go to find the new info!



Hello everyone. Once again, this is a pretty quiet week. No uncapped TPE opportunities, and the sims have slowed down a bit after a very fast first couple of days. We are slowly getting in the interesting part of the season though. The WJC is starting soon-ish. We are starting to see some teams sell their roster players to contenders. This might not be the most interesting newsletter you'll read. But we're getting there. You'll see next week! Good read, you guys!



Uncapped TPE Opportunities


No special opportunity at the moment.



What's Going On In The VHLM


VHLM Season *NEW*

Teams have now played 28 games each, as we are passed the first third of the season. We are really starting some separations in the standings, as the gap between the best and the worst teams is bigger every sim. That being said, the standings haven't changed too much since last week. The top 5 has moved around a bit, but the 5 teams composing it are still the same, meaning the same teams would make the playoffs now and last week.


1. Halifax 21st (20-8-0, Last Week: 1st)

2. Minnesota Storm (17-10-1, Last Week: 5th)

3. Ottawa Lynx (16-11-1, Last Week: 3rd)

4. Las Vegas Aces (14-12-2, Last Week: 2nd)

5. Houston Bulls (13-12-3, Last Week: 4th)

6. Yukon Rush (12-13-3, Last Week: 6th)

7. Saskatoon Wild (11-16-1, Last Week: 7th)

8. Philadelphia Reapers (9-15-4, Last Week: 8th)


Top stories this week:

- Minnesota leaps from 5th position to 2nd position. The Storm probably has the best roster in terms of TPE, so it was weird to see them only at 5th after a full week of sims. They went 10-2-0 in their last 12 games, so you know @Eudaldkp has been doing good work with the lines and the tactics since the initial rough patch. When teams move up, it also means some other teams have to move down. The Aces and the Bulls were both victims to the Storm ascent and the 21st might be next, as they look pretty much unstoppable at the moment.

- Ottawa is still hanging on. @Esso2264 thought he'd be selling by now but the Lynx are somehow still in 3rd position. Jack Lynch is scoring at an unreal rate and the rest of the team is following him well, as the Lynx are still well into the playoffs race.

- Philadelphia is selling already. While the Wild and the Lynx have both been holding on to their assets until now, the Reapers have already started thinking about season 66, as they made 3 trades in the last days, sending assets to Halifax, Las Vegas and Yukon. This brings to two side-stories: (1) Halifax added Jet Jaguar, Edward Vigneault to their already solid core as they try to keep up with the rest of the league. And (2) Yukon is... buying? That's right, @Josh thinks his 6th-placed Rush are better than the standings suggests and he's been trading for good roster players to try and make it up.


Season 65 World Junior Championship *NEW*

The World Junior Championship are once again set to start at around the midpoint of the VHL season. Once again, the event is led by @Banackock and @BladeMaiden, and they are joined this season by @FrostBeard, in what I believe is his first job in the VHL. Since the tournament's revival in S62, Team Canada has been on the winning side every time and, every time, it was @Jubo07 leading them to glory. Is this the season someone finally takes the favourites down? You could help write history, as the commissioners are currently taking GM applicants for the tournament. They need a GM for each of the 5 teams: Canada, USA, Europe, Asia and World. You don't need to have previous GM experience to be considered, as the WJC is widely regarded as an avenue for new members to hold a job in the league for the first time.

Uncapped Point Task Opportunities

-          If you haven't already, make sure to spend some of your contract/sponsorship money on the First Generation Package in the Player Store. It's an exceptionally cheap purchase that gives you five uncapped TPE.


Trivia Assistance

Hint for question 1: In the section of the forum called VHL League Discussion, you'll find a lot of pinned historic lists, one of which is called Cup-winning goals. That's a good place to look.


Hint for question 2: Head for the VHL HOF section and look for VHL Awards winners. You'll find the Shaw trophy and a list of all winners. Look for the lowest number of wins in that list.


Video Tutorial


This is a video tutorial of how to improve your player through point tasks that I made about two months ago. The idea was that we were going to have this edited to a better standard before the Season 64 Draft, but that hasn't come to pass yet, so I'll just release the raw footage for now.
