Development Update: Mid-March

Excitement continues to build as Stone Cold Hockey© design goes into the fine-tuning stage. The game is now producing much more accurate results, while bringing the fun, dramatic narrative of a fast and physical sport.  The latest updates include:

  • Home/Away Control ratings: I tried and tried to make the team ratings work with built-in home ice boosts in the charts, but it was not enough. So the 1974-75 season was re-rated to distinctly model each team's level of performance at home and on the road. This makes seasons a bit more challenging to produce, but the payoff is already worth it.
  • Optional Assist table added.
  • A couple of new comeback-oriented results in the charts to bring more competitive balance and scoring.
  • A new 3rd period rule added for Protecting a Lead.

Below is a sneak-peek at the current layout of the team cards:
