    I just started the game yesterday, so this will be a running dialogue and review of my impressions as I explore the game. I will go back and fix or edit previous comments, with changes clearly marked, if necessary.
    ...


    Very comprehensive, but thoughtful feedback.  I'd like to echo the non-money player comments. I fit that category. I've been playing or about a week and am finding this app to be extremely unfavorable, hostile even to players like me. My best player is Jared Sullinger. I've been trying to get money for Rondo, but have just been wasting the few coins I have in bidding wars. Just lost about 10 coins and ran out of money when the bit went to just under 50 million.  All legends cost way too many coins. It defy anyone to tell me they got Shaq without spending real money. It will take me months to get 600 coins at the rate you win them. I am now in the mid level 20's and my best player is 400 something.  Most people, who are clearly dropping real money on this game by this time have pkayers who are 2, 3, 4 or more times higher than me.  Someone in this rookie league I am in has at least twice the player points as anyone else. It is literally impossible for anyone to compete without paying real money.  Looks like a lot of people paying though. FTB must be raking it in.  Good for them, but I won't be recommending this game to anyone.

    How about also having an option where we can disable the use of boosters for a certain period of time. Sometimes we might not want to use it or save it for harder portions of the tourneys. Just a quick disable/enable feature  :)

    The booster thing is a cool option . Also if we log in for 10 straight days or say 20 , we should maybe get more coins or cash ? or even like a special booster?

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, a new bid system, it's not about spend coins it's a complete waste of time trying to bid for some players, near 30-40 minutes or more, put a system when you can put a maximum, with 1 or 2 coins every 5 million cash for example, but, like me, i think many people don't bid because we can't stay all that time watching our devices, it's like seen grass growing

    Implementing coin offers when you reach less than 10 coins, like in 2014.

    Obviously, a lot of people are extremely furious about how NBA GM stole everyone's money. So... if NBA GM is not going to return all our hard earned money, maybe we can at least meet half way. How about a compromise?

    In a later update, allow the people (all those who played NBA GM 2014) to get back at least 3 to 5 of their chosen players from their last year's roster. The players they bring back can be reduced back to level 1, I don't mind. The real issue here is that people spent time, energy, and MONEY to get the players they wanted. So if you're not going to give us refunds, at least give us back what we bought.

    There should be Bonus for Teams who have Real Players on the Team you chose. Like for me, I chose the Pelicans and currently I have Davis, Holiday, Gordon, Asik and Anderson. Earning for Evans..

    Let's say if I put this 5 Players on my Current line up, My Team Value will be x120%..

    11/18/14 - Part 2: Diving in!

    If you'd like to see how my suggestions have changed from my initial impressions, here's Part One.

    In a short week since I started playing, I've seen some very promising signs and a few worrisome ones as well. The promising signs have bumped up my rating for this game from a 3-star decent app-game to a 4-star fun game - it's heading in the right direction so I've made my investments accordingly. To recap, these are where my suggestions are coming from:

    I do pay to play out of the principle that a game worth playing will also be a game worth paying. However, a community-driven game like this is based off it's larger free-to-pay player base, so there must always be that balance where these players will be able to have fun and challenge pay players as well. I'm against pay walls and locked content, and I think FtB does a good job with that balance where legends have different advantages than regular players (consistency with high scores and injury proof). Besides, the free players are just potential pay players and boost numbers even when they're not directly paying.
    I value long-term goals over short-term for both players and the company. This does not mean that I expect the 2015 version of the game to last through next year. Sports games will have a new version every year because people will pay for it, NBA licensors expect it, and app players don’t have an attention span longer than that for the most part anyway. On the flip side, I don’t believe that companies should be trying to squeeze every drop of profit from the customer as this alienates paying customers from coming back. With such a highly competitive but captive market, it would be more lucrative to keep customers coming back – a classic golden goose example. That’s why you’ll see me emphasize the following:

    Good communication so that players won’t feel frustrated by changes, updates, or downtimes, and build anticipation for future events. The board response has been decent, but a weekly in-game system would be better. That “The League” Announcement via message was perfect.
    Coin compensations. Free stuff makes players happy. For FtB, it not only helps counteract any frustration from downtime or troubles that happens with any app game, but it also gives them the flexibility to include a lot of fun events that can require a coin to get in.
    12/28 State of the Game thoughts - I've accomplished almost all of what I wanted to in the game already. I can win the PvP tournaments if I save all the boosts from the PvE tournaments for the playoffs and get my total team score to 19,000 or so. Of course, then I don't play the game for a few days because I don't want the boosts to be wasted. The only boost I enjoy is the ones that last for 200 games from winning the All-Star tournament. This game is entertaining enough, but I get the feeling that only a small team is handling this and they just can't handle both the development and the user interactions that really help a game go viral. Ah well - it's a solid 3.5 star game so enjoy it as such.


    Game Needs
    Check game history – I have a feeling this is coming, but I’d like to know who’s been picking on me and how I can get revenge soon. Plus, I’d like to see how much money I’m losing.
    Game explanations – Do I lose my streak when someone challenges me and defeats me? How much money do I lose when I’m defeated? Is the bank of any use yet or is it just a money trap? 11/27 It tells me I can increase the size of my roster as I'm bidding, but I don't accept because I'm bidding and there's a time crush. How do I go back to that option?
    Grounded future expectations – Though it’s probably too early to tell, it was alarming to hear how veteran players and paid players were actually penalized for having legends in the playoffs last year. I’d like transparency with how playoffs and future challenges work – will buying the (super expensive) legends actually hurt me like it did to players last year? Again, this could just be helped along with communication from FtB that they’re working to make a fair and better system than they had last year.
    Better transitional rewards – This ties a bit with communication, as judging from what I was reading in the previous board and the other feedback here, players were blindsided by the new version. I don’t think players would be against a new-version ever year, since we do it with every other console game out there.  The caveat here would be there needs to be an incentive to invest in a game knowing that it will be outdated. Therefore, there needs to be good and unique transitional rewards. Players do crazy things to get a leg up on the next game, even if those rewards may eventually be marginal with power creep. Furthermore, these rewards don’t have to impact new players – with the separate servers, you’ll generally have old players versus the old and new versus the new. 
    A way to keep new and free players in it - While the % discount that I suggested earlier has problems, maybe a straight voucher toward your first two purchases could still work. Adding players is the best part of this game, and players shouldn't be alienated because of the crazy inflation. PvP might always be tilted, but the PvE (tourney) part needs to stay varied and exciting for the free players to thrive.
    Better interface - There's confirmation requests everywhere, thus making it so that I never read it - and causing me to accidentally skip a tournament waiting period for 67 (!) coins. First, that's ridiculously overpriced. Second, limit the pop-ups! Nobody likes them in ads or gameplay. Then, when you actually need a pop-up, I couldn't figure out how to move money out of the bank to bid on players - and it gave me a minor panic attack as bidding wound down. (Because nonsensically enough, you can't bid out of a combination of bank + free funds). And on that note...


    Superficial changes
    Track player changes – It’s a lot of fun seeing how my players are progressing and affecting my line-up. Unfortunately, I only get to see it once during the day’s update. I’d love an option to look back at those numbers changing.
    Reduce that news clutter – There’s way more gray than there should be on a welcome screen. Reduce the items so the exciting stuff is on top, and create a link to see all that old news (because the news update and history of the players are great and should be available to future players).
    More (Cheaper) Boosters – These should be fun, plentiful, and encouraged. I have been trying to limit my fun with these because I want to save up on players, but I hate dynamics that discourage fun features in order to promote other ones. Instead, have boosters that are cheap (and likely fewer) in each bundle (possibly with an option to auto-replenish). Things like a “In My Day” booster for legends or a “Our House!” one for players that match the team you selected would be even more versatile than the position ones we have now. Alternatively, you could have a third type of currency for boosters-only.
    11/27 - Now that I've advanced quite a ways down the tourney line, it seems as the boosts from tournaments required to further your progression. That means you don't want to battle players at all for fear of wasting boosts. I'd like an option for automatically using boosts only in tournaments so I don't feel restricted from doing PvP.
    12/28 - Continuing from above, short-term boosts are something I don't want to waste and provide an incentive NOT to play games. Having mechanisms to not play is dumb and unfun. In the end, I'd probably want boosts to last 200 games so you don't feel restricted from playing random PvP games - I haven't played a random game in over a month.
    Limit social media requirements - Stated in my previous post. Basically, it's an outdated, burdensome, and unhelpful model.

    Wouldn't it be fun if...
    Challenges from Stars and Legends – Event challenges would be a great tie-in to the sale of the day thing we have going on. A special tournament tab where stars and legends start from taking a group of scrubs against you to teaming up with stars through time to challenge you.
    Random Events – Things are a bit too static right now, even with players gradually changing to their real life stats every 5 games or so. I’d like some sort of automated and random booster, possibly a red stat for good events or blue highlight for bad, during games along with a little news byte along the lines of “Viral highlight play” or “food poisoning” by way of explanation.

    These things make me giddy, would more be better?
    Player update graphic! - Mentioned above under "Track Player Changes," but worth mentioning twice.
    The historical tidbits - If we could find a way to link them directly from the players profile...
    Real time news - Probably just the right amount of scrolling bars and updates. I do like the auction winner ticker too, and it helps keep track of what players are paying.

    I have just a few suggestions I would like to see moving forward:

    1) When adding a fan request, I know that I am getting $100,000. I don't need to be told that every time. I would rather it go back to my received requests so I can process those. It's redundant to have to go back and forth each time you approve a request.
    2) Once I get 300 fans, what is the purpose in moving forward other than the $100,000? I would keep adding rewards of some sort.
    3) Why not continue Level 10 Tournaments to include previous NBA championship teams or All Star teams to add some more variety? I only played 14 for a few months before I completed all the tournaments. There are all sorts of different ways you can go with this to progress further in the game.

    - I would like to follow players I'm interested in the auction/bid without putting 1 coin in the start just to know if I bid or not without losing a coin each time.
    - It would be cool to have strategy like attack options and defense options when we PvP. It will be much funnier and we could learn a lot about the strategy.
    Ex : Pekovic score more than Kobe but I want Kobe to be my #1 choice for scoring,  & playing the zone or man to man because great defensive player don't get their credit in the game it would be good to have them working and can you fix the assist because my center or PF have more assist than all my PG each time.

    and a active/desactive the booster please sometime I don't need to use them like in the league ou tournament
    sorry for my english I hope you understand

    ps : GIVE US COINS !!!!
