    If I understand correctly:
    I have now a master planet lv. 65 Lebron James.
    I buy him as Wof at lv1... he merges and he is at lv.17.
    I don’t improve him and don’t renew him... he gets back to master planet at lv. 17... instead of 65, as he was.
    I don’t think it’s fair.
    Merge system should be work also in the downgrade mode, not only in the upgrade mode.

    How much will cost renewing a player (coins and/or money)? It's the same for every player? Thank you.

    This is complete and utter bullshit, new planets sucks big time.

    I just bought Westbrook for 972 coins and I got him just for 60 days, 60, not even 120??? and you want me to extend him for additional 60 days for another 972 coins?????

    Also, now I have to improve him, and if I don't renew him he will lose all improvements.

    If you don't work something out to fix and change this system this will be the end of  playing this game for a lot of players.

    Wow I upgraded Westbrook for nearly 1000 coins. A renewal would be cost again 1000 coins.

    Brino: Are you serious?

    Yes they are serious. Because people apparently were not spending enough, they developed a way to get us to spend even more. Every couple of months, prepare to have about 10,000 coins ready if you want to keep your team that you improved. Like I have been saying....a complete money grab by the developers.

    Hey @EJ Lee,
    That's right. If you have Lebron James at level 65 (Master) and you sign him at level 1 (World of Fame), he will merge and become a World of Fame player at level 18. (The 17 levels are added to the 1).

    If you don't renew his contract on the World of Fame planet, then he will move down to the Master planet at level 17.

    @Sandro,
    You should be on the World of Fame planet already if you were previously on Master. Can you please confirm when you have a moment?

    @Josemariaexposito,
    Unfortunately, the price depends on the player. There isn't a fixed price for all of them.

    @DNK and @Angelo,
    The price to renew a player isn't necessarily going to be the same price as when you signed him. It could be less expensive or more expensive depending on the amount of time on the contract you're renewing. You can also receive extra days on the contract by completing jobs in the game. There are different options, not just the one.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Seriously, combining diamond planet to master planet? x100 vs x128. If just knew this would happen. I should have stayed at platinum or gold planet. Its now time to move on.

    You guys need to write some instructions, when do we get something, what something will cost, how much do we get, etc.

    I did 2 jobs and didn't get any extra days!?

    I’m in the wof planet now....since Westbrook was avalaible in the direct market, at level 25, I bought him for coins, to test the new system.I had him previously at level 65, master planet, now he’s been converted to level 44, but the contract expires in 60 days ( out of the maximum of 120 days) only. I’m not very happy about that, I’m considering to leave the game.

    I also wanted to inform the other fellow managers of the whole experience, so far, in the wof planet.... I received Rondo as a ‘gift’ (I had him already I’m master planet, level 20) and now he is at level 5, but he has a contract of 120 days....I wish that was granted for Westbrook in the planet transition (read my previous post)!
    I also noticed that the ‘contract system’ doesn’ apply to all the other players in my roster, which of courses are still ‘in the master planet. I hope that my experience can clarify a little the confusion....

    About this new feature of the contract renewal, now appeared a pop up message of a limited time offer (8 hours) to buy extra contract length of Westbrook for 60 days more, for about 1000 coins.
    As for me, this is a very bad direction the game is going through as is clear that to have all these coins it will be mandatory to spend real money.

    Hi @Brino,

    more expensive than 1000 coins? THat was a joke, wasn't it? On a screenshot I saw a renewal of Lebron James for 250 Coins, but even that is a lot. You make it IMPOSSIBLE to have a roster of 20-30 players. If we have to renew every player for 1000 coins, we need 20.000 to 30.000 coins every 60 days. Now you will say that it depends on the player - but please don't say that since you know what I mean. And I am not talking about the legend players, they are even more expensive.

    You said that we can get renewal days by finishing tasks, I did a lot of tasks today I didn't get any renewal days as reward. So is it not activated, or is it a rare reward which happens every 5 days once? So how do you want me to renew 20-30 players every two months without paying real money?

    Please rethink your system, I don't want to leave the game but you are forcing me to do that. I spent already a lot of real money and are willing to spend more, but not for such a stupid gameplay.

    And Brino, if you just want to add your default responses to my posting, just leave it. Talk to your manager or show him the reactions in this forum.

    Thank you.

    After testing the ‘new’ game I can tell the following.
    So the mountain gave birth to a little mouse( that’s translated from Italian) .....again the tournaments, starting from level 1 south east division, and again the weekly league, starting from rookie. Nothing new under the sky, about the competitions, then.... as for the contracts feature, as I said before in my posts of today, that’s something studied as a eating real money machine....

    Funny thing, here is the announcement from last year:

    WORLD OF FAME PLANET

    This planet will arrive with one of the biggest and most exciting updates in the 4-year history of NBA General Manager.

    With this planet you’ll find a new kind of competition where your team strategy and balance will be key.

    This competition (on the World of Fame planet) will take the place of the weekly league since it’ll be closely related to it.

    We believe that with this competition, the best managers in the world will have to stay up-to-date on everything going on because the competition is going to be incredible!

    We’ll give more information about this new planet and new updates as we go along.

    And what did we get? Just another planet and loan players.

    Exactly Angelo, the weekly league is reborn like the mithological Phoenix and they just accomplished a new system to drain real money....since i’m not going to do that (I just spent 2,99€ during 1 year and a half) I’m out of the competition and I will be forced to opt out

    Question. Can I sign a player that is not in my rosters? Example player available in the market now like George Gervin. If I sign him today I'll have him at level 20 and I have 60 days to use him. What if after 60 days, i dont want to renew him anymore. What will happen to the player?

    Hi Brino,
    A curiousity: why are some teams already in the all star league?

    I see modest teams in Senior league... I suppouse it’s not about PV...

    What does best 1% (or best 3%) mean?

    Thanks!

    Agree with many of you, these changes are awful! I’ve been playing this game for years and this is likely the last straw for me, but I’m willing to give it a try. Also, I understand the situation they are in and need to find more revenue sources, but this just isn’t the way to handle it.

    I actually don’t mind the concept of the 60 or 120 day contract, but the implementation is just wrong. If I’ve got a WoF player that I’m unable to renew the concept of pushing that player back to the previous planet isn’t a bad idea, but if/when I resign them, they should go into WoF as the same level as they previously were. The fact that you get reverted back to a much lower level is a joke and blatant money grab.

    Now back to the reason I signed up for this forum. 

    https://fromthebench.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360002552467/comments/360001580588

    You are able to renew and/or extend a contract for an auction for a player, I just did it with John Wall.  If a WoF player you own becomes available in the auction tab, they do not show up in that window, but in your renew window instead. I was able to “renegotiate” a 60 day contract extension for $30M, so he is now on a 120 day contract.

    I've been at the all star level for platinum in what seems like forever and was planning on moving up to the next planet when the season ends. Even though It wasn’t my choice to move up to WoF, I’m lucky enough to have $600K+ and over 9K coins. My plan, as of now, is to ONLY BUY WoF limited edition characters for coins and use the money to extend their contracts. That way my “new” WoF character will level up higher.

    Hi @Sandro Bert,
    You can renew your players either with Cash or Coins, depending on if you're using the Renewal Auctions or Renewing the player directly with coins. You don't always have to spend the coins for this process, however, there is also no fixed price for the players.

    @DNK,
    We included all of the information in our Blog post here and even sent a message within the game for the users to check it out:
    http://www.nbageneralmanagerthegame.com/english-world-of-fame/
    The thing about the prices is that they depend on the players. There isn't any fixed price for all of them so we aren't able to provide such exact information.

    Regarding the 2 jobs you did for extra days, did you receive an error message at all? Can you please send me your User ID? Please note that if you're experiencing technical issues, I need this information to be able to check your account.

    @Angelo,
    I've found your User ID (1:6551667) from another post, but if you can put it in your message when you need technical assistance, I'll be able to look into it sooner. We're checking into this issue and I'll let you know as soon as I have more information.

    You tell me that you don't want me to say that it depends on the player, but that's how it is. I don't know how much all of the players cost. Just like in the Auctions and Buy Now section, you can see how much they cost there.

    I'm not giving any default response to your messages. I've already been showing the team the responses in the forum and I've mentioned this numerous times in the past. Please remember that I do not work on the development team and I don't work on the team the decides how the game works or what to charge for each player. I work on the Support team and there is only so much that I can do, however, I can assure you that the team already has access to the forum and they are reviewing all of your messages.

    @putoseco,
    Yes, you can still sign players that you don't have on your roster as long as you have available slots to sign them.

    @EJ Lee,
    What do you mean about the modest teams in the Senior League exactly? Can you please give me more info?
    That means the top 1% or Best 3% of the users in the ranking.

    @Mike Good,
    I've read your message and understand what you're saying. It'd be great if you could give us the chance. We know that the new planet is different from the rest and includes different features and maybe it's more difficult to maintain your best players on the top planet, but we really think you all will enjoy it in the end.

    Yes, when you have to renew a World of Fame player, he shows up in the Renewal section, not the Auctions.

    If you have any further questions, just let me know.

    Hi all.
    This update is very bad.
    I had droumoind lvl 65, at master planet. Now I get him 'free' with updating, for 120 days. It's pv is lower of corse.
    After 120 days, if I will not renew the contract, it will go master planet lvl 20....it will be less than 1/3 pv, than before your price.
    I don't want this gift nor this planet. Bruno, I know it's not your decision about the WOF.
    Please, Return Me to Master planet please.
    WOF, just decrease my power.
    Even diamond is better than WOF.
    Thanks

    @brino Thanks for the response. I do plan on giving it a chance, but never been a big fan on chance, lol

    I also have not been able to send anyone on the 12 hour job and get an error message every time I tried. Went to try it again to let you know the message and it worked, so that’s good I guess.

    Do have two question I hope you can help me with. If I buy an NBA Legend, I’m guessing I’ll have to renew them also, but how does that work? Since they are not regular content and can’t be bought for cash, will a coin offer appear before the contract expires? Second, if I were to buy the go WOF pack, I’m assuming the player offered, Magic Johnson, is not permanent, if not how long is the contract? Don’t like the idea of spending $9 for a player who’s not permanent.

    What will happen to the player if I did not renew him? Will it go back to level 1 master planet (x128) or level 1 diamond planet (x100)?

    Hi @ירון ברכה,

    As I've explained already in previous messages, the Diamond and Master planets were removed from the game. I cannot revert anyone back to any of those planets.

    @Mike Good,
    The issue with the jobs should be resolved now. Can you please confirm when you have a moment?

    When you sign a legend player, he should have a contract of 120 days. That means that you have 120 days to renew him. The max amount of days you can have are 120. Legend players, just like the regular ones, will need to be renewed as normal. We don't have any special offers that are programmed to activate when you're player's contract is running out, but there are also different ways in which you can earn extra days on the contract for free. You can also earn free days in Jobs, Tournaments, the Daily Bonus and Special competitions as rewards.

    @putoseco,
    If you don't renew your player, he will move down to the previous planet (The new Platinum planet with a higher multiplier since the Diamond and Master planets have been removed. The level will be respected, so if he is at Level 1 on the World of Fame planet, he will be at Level 1 on the Platinum planet. If he is at level 65 on the World of Fame planet, he will be at level 65 on the Platinum planet.

    @brino Yes it is working. I was able to finally select it last night, but wanted to make sure I got it after the 12 hour period ended and I did.

    I think I understand what your saying about Legendary players, but just want to verify that I’m understanding it correctly. Let’s say I buy Wilt Chamberlain, whenever he becomes available, and I have him for 120 days. Because Legendary players appear far less often, he might not be available for 70 days (just throwing out a number) and for some reason I didn’t renew him (just missed it, not having enough coins, or not wanting to then) if he doesn’t show up as an offer again, before he expires, than I’m just out of luck and he will revert back to master world? If I wanted to “keep” him I’d just need to continue using extra days until he shows up in the Legendary rotation again? If this is the case than aren’t Legendary players more of a risk? I know the same can be said about current players, but they appear in auctions almost daily and some days multiple times. I also believe they cycle through the buy now area more often than a Legendary, but I could be wrong about that.

    Hi @Mike Good,

    Great! Thanks for letting me know. To a certain extent you're correct, however, we would try to add the Legend players more often from now on. Also, if you don't renew him, you're correct in that he would be moved down to the previous planet, however, it would be the new Platinum planet since the Diamond and Master planets have been removed.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
