4-22-2014 Release Notes April 22
Public Forum users
It is now possible to sign up for Hattrick without also getting a team to manage. This "light" registration is mostly intended for people that wants to participate in our forums but who are not yet ready to take part in the game. Also, the limited registration will only be available for users who reach Hattrick through our public forum pages. We don't expect to see a huge impact of "forum-only users" for now , but we just wanted to point out that they do exist and that they commit to the same forum conduct rules as everyone else.
4-15-2014 Training formulae not correctly shown
We have spotted some issues in formulae relating to the Assistant Coaches in the new staff system. Currently, the training effects received from Assistant Coaches is not correctly shown in the manual. It was also incorrectly shown in the Training Estimation tool (a Supporter feature), but this bug has now been fixed. The manual will be updated with the correct numbers this week.
4-13-2014 Youth match and Facebook login problems
We are currently investigating problems with youth matches not running and not being able to login through Facebook.
Update 21:10 HT Time: Youth matches are running again. Expect delays until tomorrow morning.
Update 9:07 HT Time: Facebook login has been fixed.
4-11-2014 Bob no longer goes to the bank
It will no longer be possible to get the achievement 'Met Bob at the bank'. Those who already have the achievement will keep it, but lose the points for this achievement.
4-9-2014 Match engine fix
Yesterday we released a fix for a small bug in the match engine related to special events.
It used to happen in a few very specific cases that a team could get more special event oportunities than it should according to its ball posession.
This has been fixed now, starting from yesterday's friendly matches.
4-9-2014 Transfers stopped
We've temporarily stopped transfers because of an urgent network maintenance from our provider that might cause the site to become unavailable.
We will restart them once everything is stable.
UPDATE: Now we've started transfers again, everything should catch up soon.
3-27-2014 Release notes 27th March
We have made a major change to the way we present banners which will hopefully make browsing much faster for non Supporters. It should also fix some of the problems we were having with banners.
HT press articles are public now and can be accessed without login.
3-24-2014 Release notes 24th March
We have made a couple of improvements to the ratings:
1) The timeline looks slightly different. There are now 2 tabs for 45 minutes (and 90 minutes if the game went to extra time), one before the break and one after the break. To clarify this, there is a small divider to indicate these breaks. Also, we made it slightly narrower.
2) For live ratings we fixed the ratings shown at the beginning of the second half.
3-19-2014 Forum ignore function available to everyone
Today we have made the possibility to ignore certain users on the forums available to all users (should you have the desire to do so). Previously this was a Supporter only feature.
3-17-2014 Release notes 17th March
Starting with today's matches, you will always be able to see who the set piece taker is. Before it was only available on the "Average" view, now it will be available at each 5 minute interval as well.
3-15-2014 Downtime this weekend
23.55 - We're currently (and have been since about 15.00 on Saturday, Hattrick time) experiencing serious problems with what seems to be our connections. Everything has been running fine in the background, and as soon as you're able to log on matches and updates have been completed as scheduled.
Update (00.30) - The problem has now been solved, it was indeed a problem with our ISP. Transfers between 22:55 (Saturday) and 11:00 (Sunday) has been postponed by 12 hours.
Again, we apologise sincerely for any inconvenience!
3-3-2014 Release notes 3rd March
We have removed the tournament restrictions for Supporters whose Supporter runs out before the tournament ends. This means that you can join a tournament without having to pay credits as long as you are a Supporter at the time you join the tournament, even if your Supporter will run out the next day.
We also fixed the average match ratings for youth matches.
2-21-2014 Bankruptcy change
We have made a change to how bankruptcy works. From now on, if a team has players for sale with bids enough to reach the "safe zone", the team will not go bankrupt.
2-10-2014 Release notes 10th February
Today we have a few small additions:
- We increased the number of HT Press articles shown per page from 5 to 10.
- You can sort HT Press articles by views, likes and comments as well.
- Ongoing matches and old matches will now use the "new" match report page, this means the end of the "old" match report page.
1-31-2014 No youth matches being generated
We are looking into a problem where matches are not being generated for new youth leagues.
Update: Matches are being generated now.
1-27-2014 Release notes 27th January
This week we see a few match analysis fixes: when you mouseover the highlights on the right, this will highlight the corresponding event in the report. Youth matches are now also shown in the new match pages.
If you have avatars enabled, then you will now see player avatars instead of the shirts on the match order form. From now on we also show your player performances if you were given a walkover.
Furthermore we have increased the width of the simple skin.
To finish off these release notes we can mention that earlier we finally fixed the problem of the youth scouts not finding any prospects.
1-26-2014 Delayed matches in Germany and Poland
We are looking into a problem with delayed matches in Germany. You no longer need to notify your GMs about it.
Update: Matches have caught up now.
1-19-2014 Delayed financial updates
We are looking into a problem with delayed financial updates in South and Central America. There is no need to contact your GMs about this.
Update: The problem has been solved now.
1-2-2014 Release notes 2nd January
A few nice additions to kick off the new year with:
- you are now informed about any unsold players through the news ticker when the deadline passes
- in the club news we now link to a new Supporter or if they stop supporting you
- in the historical standings table, the teams currently in the series are now bolded
- we have added the user name to the page of supported teams
And of course we wish you all a happy New Year!
12-23-2013 No youth players found?
Apparently there are some youth scouts who still do not present a player as stated in our previous announcement. The HFA will ensure that all scouts are briefed as soon as possible. We will keep you updated.
