7-19-2021 Some User Survey Insights

Earlier this year, more than 70,000 of you answered our user survey. We got some very good insights into how you think the game is developing. We are very thankful for that.

In comparison to earlier surveys in 2019 and 2009, it seems Hattrick is gradually improving in your eyes. It has become easier to navigate the site, the training system has become a lot easier to understand, and you prefer a steady stream of new features instead of huge updates once in a while. We were especially happy to learn that 96% of you expect to play Hattrick at least through next year!

Back in 2009 the match engine was what most users wanted us to work on. Now you would prefer us to focus on player development and team economy. At the same time, more people find the match simulation harder to understand. This was the main criticism of Hattrick in the survey, and something we will take to heart in upcoming development.

If you are interested in reading more about the survey, and our conclusions from it, please head over to our Dev Blog where we have written more in-depth about it. Please bear in mind that this blog is English-only.

Again, many thanks for your feedback..
Have a great summer!

7-14-2021 Kit Designer in the App

We’ve continued work on the new Match Kit Designer, which is included in Supporter for Gold subscribers and above. We have added some of your suggestions from the 1.0 release and taken care of some bugs as well.

Here is the list:

- We have added image import, which means you can now add your team logo to your design.

- We have added a new symmetry tool, which allows you to clone and mirror across the center of the kit.

- We have fixed a strange bug which caused weird colors to be shown, which annoyed a fair number of you.

Most importantly, perhaps, we have added support for the Kit Designer to the app as well. It feels good for this functionality to have finally arrived in the 2020s!

We continue working on both the Kit and the Arena designer, so please stay tuned.

The apps are, as you all know, completely free and available for Android as well as for Apple iOS.

Downloading the app is time well spent whether you are a Supporter or not. If you like the app, feel free to give us a favorable review as well!

6-30-2021 Achieve More This Season!

With the foundation in place with our recent Achievements update, it is now time to add a bunch of new challenges for all managers out there. There are 17 new ones for you to sink your teeth into!

You'll find them on the the Achievements page, which is now divided into sections, each with its own separate scoreboard. In the “Main” section, you'll find the majority of achievements that require you to do something glorious with your team or as a manager. Achievements that are fun or interesting, but not necessarily aligned with good team performance, have been placed in the “Special” section, so as to not create incentives for users to sub-optimize their teams.

Finally, we have the new “Supporter” category, where any achievements that require Supporter or other pay features are listed separately.

In addition to separate scoreboards, each section also has its own lists for global and national top achievers.

We are replacing two achievements with new ones. First off, the old national cup achievement is replaced with one achievement that rewards progress in a single season, and another that rewards a streak of winning cup matches across seasons. This will create a better balance between small and large leagues. The new cup achievements are calculated retroactively, so if you achieved the goal in the past you will get them now.

Our new national coach achievement 100% replaces the old. Instead of being elected once, you need to be re-elected to get the achievement. This way, we hope to discourage managers who are interested more in getting elected than in doing serious work for their community.

The old versions of the Cup and NT achievements will still be visible to the users who had them, but they will not count to the point total.

Except for the Cup achievements, none of the new achievements will be awarded retroactively. New challenges such as promote twice in a row, getting homegrown players into the NT or racking up clean sheets are just that: new challenges. Get to work!

We hope you like this update!

6-25-2021 Comandante Ernesto "Che" Guevara B Grabs Masters

Comandante Ernesto "Che" Guevara B from Nicaragua and Meerkats Athletic from Oceania played the Hattrick Masters final last night. In a match between two of the strongest teams in the Hattrick universe, Comandante eventually scored one more goal than Meerkats, making them champions of the 78th edition of the Hattrick Masters.

The first half was pretty spectacular with many good chances for both squads. It was Comandante who took a 2 - 0 lead, and all seemed to go well for the Nicaraguans. Perhaps they were already dreaming of some frosty, delicious adult beverages, because in the last 6 minutes of this half, Meerkats scored twice, leveling the score at 2 - 2.

Although the second half lacked some of the sizzle of the first half, viewers kept their eyes riveted to the match, waiting to see which of the teams would turn the score in their favor. The two teams battled it out on equal terms, but eventually things went Comandante's way. The tipping point came when Comandante's coach brought 聖 (Satoshi) 長尾 (Nagao) on to the pitch, hoping to see some magic. He didn't have to wait long. The referee had hardly resumed play when Satoshi buried a fantastic free kick. Despite all efforts, substitutions, and tactical instructions, no more goals were scored by either team, and Comandante became the new Hattrick Masters champion.

Our congratulations go to Comandante Ernesto "Che" Guevara B and their manager hastalavictoria!

6-3-2021 20 Years of Making Hattrick Possible

This Saturday, June 5, HT's Supporter package turns 20 years old. Hooray! As usual, we celebrate this with a treat for the lovely group of people that we call Supporters!

* We’ve added the “Team of the Week” feature for all divisions, leagues and Hattrick as a whole.

* We now have Match Event statistics for Special Events as well!

* In the Statistics page for your series, you can now check the top teams in the series for a bunch of new criteria: TSI, salary level, power ranking, stamina and experience. Values are shown either for your Top 11 players or as an average for the whole squad. Hopefully there is at least one area where you will be able to call yourself superior to your series rivals?

* We are also visualizing your historical Power Rating in a new way - as a graph. In this new graph you can also see how the Power Ratings of your series rivals progress over time.

* The most requested addition on this list, however, is expanded Supporter stats. Goals, cards and best player now cover not just the last 3 seasons, but ALL seasons! A huge shout out to our server guys for finally allowing us to implement this one!

We know that many Supporters are stat nerds, so we hope you like this release! 

To add some sugar to this Supporter Appreciation Week for the rest of our users as well, we are running a 15% discount offer on all Supporter packages this coming week. This offer runs until midnight on June 12th.

Again, a big up to all Supporters out there - we are so grateful for you helping us developing this game!

5-31-2021 At Least in HT, Arenas are Open Again!

We are very happy to announce that the arena designer tool is once again available for Supporters. Unlike the kit designer, not only did we recreate the old Flash tool, we also used 3D technology for the editor. So while the current modules and color choices are very similar to the old system, you can now zoom-in and rotate your creations. The best part is that using 3D enables a lot of interesting options for the future.

Another new feature is that arena images are no longer only created dynamically. Stadium thumbnails are saved now, which means you can download and share images outside Hattrick if you want.

For now, the arena surroundings are not enabled. We're redesigning the surroundings to make them more interesting, and will save feature that for a later release.

We know it's been a long wait. Enjoy visiting your arenas again!

5-27-2021 The Mentor Chat

We’ve opened a new chat channel open to all new managers in Hattrick, as well as to experienced Hattrick users who have pledged to help out as mentors.

The mentor chat is a place not only for sharing advice about how to take on the game, but also for newbies to ask about how mentoring works before signing up for one.

Having a mentor is a great idea for most new managers in Hattrick, so if you haven’t considered it yet, this could be the time to consider it. It’s easy, it's free, and it will probably give you a much better chance to make the most of your first seasons in the game.

The chat is available on the Mentor page, where you can also sign up to be mentored, or be a mentor yourself! 
It can, of course, also be found in our recently added chat portal, where you can navigate between all the chats you are a member of. To open the chat portal, click the expansion arrow on any chat on the site. For example, the one on your Series page or using the shortcut in the Hattrick header.

Happy mentoring!
