We talked a lot about friendly challenge without explaining why they are important.



Here are  the main reason :

  1. A friendly game give you extra cash, you get half of the profit of the ticket and souvenir sale, so it you play on a good arena that have a lot of seat you can make a decent amount.
  2. Winning a friendly game increase (a bit) the general valuation of your team, which will increase the offer from your sponsor.
  3. Your players gain some chemistry and experience, it can be a good idea to have a different line-up for friendly game so you can send your younger player in friendly game and keep your main line intact for big game.

How it works ?

You can challenge up to 30 days or 120 days is you have a propack, once you find another owner that actually accept friendly game, try to keep their name somewhere to ask them again later.
It’s kind of hard to find decent team when you are not on a propack.
Propack however have an auto-find friendly game for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.


Remember that friendly challenge use less energy that normal and playoff game but they still use it (that another reason to have 2 line-up) You can read more about how intensity impact your energy in my other post about tactic.

Main line-up

Friendly line-up

Hope that covers everything you need to know about friendly game in ppm manager.
If you have any suggestion that you want me to cover or other game you want me to review leave a comment below or drop me a mail…

Odin Quest Server 21, Excalibur, will be released on July 24, 2013 5:00 PDT.
Welcome all braves to save this broken world.
In Welsh legend, Arthur’s sword is known as Caledfwlch. In Culhwch and Olwen, it is one of Arthur’s most valuable possessions and is used by Arthur’s warrior Llenlleawg the Irishman to kill the Irish king Diwrnach while stealing his magical cauldron (Irish mythology mentions a weapon Caladbolg, the sword of Fergus mac Roich. Caladbolg was also known for its incredible power and was carried by some of Ireland’s greatest heroes. The name, which can also mean "hard cleft" in Irish, appears in the plural, caladbuilc, as a generic term for "great swords" in the 10th century Irish translation of the classical tale The Destruction of Troy, Togail Troi. Though not named as Caledfwlch, Arthur’s sword is described vividly in The Dream of Rhonabwy one of the tales associated with the Mabinogion:

Then they heard Cadwr Earl of Cornwall being summoned, and saw him rise with Arthur’s sword in his hand, with a design of two chimeras on the golden hilt; when the sword was unsheathed what was seen from the mouths of the two chimeras was like two flames of fire, so dreadful that it was not easy for anyone to look. At that the host settled and the commotion subsided, and the earl returned to his tent.

Now, this missing sword of legends is discovered in World of Odin Quest. Only the Real braves could lift it from the Stone!

Gold and Gems


Let the game run and do stuff when you have enough money. It mostly a wait and see game so let it run in background and have some fun when you come back.

From the Indie game blog:

“You start with an empty landscape and few options, but soon your kingdom will flourish. Each new structure increases your opportunities for interaction and helps prepare you for your next excursion. Manage your resources, increase your production, upgrade your equipment, and then fight your way through the next location. It’s always fun to see what comes next, and there is a satisfying sense of progression. It’s meant to be played in short bursts, in between other tasks, and kept running in a background tab when you’re otherwise engaged. There are a lot of locations to visit, so Gold and Gems should keep you occupied for a while.”

to try :

Time travel knight

Time travel knight is a html 5 made for the molyjam by Glitchy Pixel, the game pretty neat considering it was made for a game jam and has simple control.

UPDATE More game here :

This is the part 2 of our previous Tactic post. You can check the previous post at this address : tactic part 1 and you can check out our article about line management.


Rotate three lines


The main advantage of rotating 3 line is it give more ice to your best player, however it will drain your player energy and they might not be fit enough for the playoff (particularly if you are playing with a very high game importance like we talked in the last post.

Ice time percentage by line


You always wanted to manage your team like most NHL team, give your top player more ice time and use the other line to give them a break ? You can do that by setting the ice time per line in the tactic.

This option is really cool and it might reduce the need to rotate 3 lines, by simply giving the 4 lines a really low percentage.

Like I said many times be careful not to overuse your player, you want them to be able to stay up in the playoff too.

I can be a great way to balance out your team , like going 30/30/30/10 or 25% every where, then rotate 3 line if you are losing.

Changing the goalie



If your goalie is having a bad game get him out of there and put the backup goalie. Since my goalie no1 is usually my best goalie and wait until there is a 3-5 goal difference to remove him.

Reduce to rotation of three lines


You’re losing and you don’t like that, they drop the 4th line and put your best guy on the ice.

This option give a nice alternative instead of the rotate three line option, your top players won’t get too much fatigue when you are winning but they will take thing in hand and maybe make you win a couple of tight game that you might have lost if you stayed with 4 line.

React to the opponent’s withdrawal of the fourth line


This is a counter to the rotate three line and reduce rotation of three line by the opponent. If he’s putting only is best player on ice you might has well give him a decent challenge by doing the same thing.

Pull the goalie


If you’re trailing behind by a goal or two at the end of the game you can remove the goalie and put a extra forward to put pressure and try to score a goal. You have more chance of getting scored but you are losing anyway…


pull the goalie because sometime he won’t help anyway
