What's up?

11-23-2022 The Revolution Is Over

All good things must come to an end, but also some bad ones, too.

The bad thing that we decided to end today was the existence of the "Join my revolution!" achievement, as it has caused two types of spamming - both in terms of team signups, which led to extra work for GMs, but also in-game spamming between users.

If you've already gained this achievement, you will be able to see it as a disabled achievement. However, it will no longer count in your points total and no new ones will be handed out.

11-17-2022 More Resolved Cup Draws

More cup draws didn't work as expected and new cup draws are being made for the following leagues:

*Coupe de France (France)
*KNVB Beker (Nederlands)
*Puchar Polski (Poland)
*Switzerland Cup (Switzerland)
*Cope de España (Spain)

We expect this to be done in approximately half an hour. We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

11-16-2022 Cup Draws Resolved

Yesterday, the Round 2 cup draws for Italy and Germany did not work as intended. The bug causing this has been fixed and new cup draws were made for the leagues involved.

11-15-2022 Cup Draws for Round 2

We have reports that the wrong teams seem to be getting the home field advantage in the 2nd round of the national cups. We are investigating this and will, if needed, redraw the matches for next week.

11-14-2022 Hattrick Downtime

This morning Hattrick was not available to many of our users for approximately one hour. Transfers were stopped as soon as possible and were then extended when the site came back up. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

11-3-2022 Transfer Limit Working Again

The Hattrick Anniversary league transfer limit is now working again as it should. A total of 118 transfers that had been listed in "violation" of the transfer limit have been removed. Three of these had received a bid. Some teams that have had a transfer listings removed may still be allowed to list some of their players, so it is worth checking to see if you are still under your limit.

11-2-2022 Anniversary League Transfer Limit Bug

Today, a bug affecting the transfer listing limits in the Hattrick Anniversary league made itself known, allowing teams that should no longer be able to list players to list players anyway. We identified and closed this loophole this afternoon, but for the time being all players listed by HTAL teams today remain on the transfer list. Tomorrow (Thursday) we will take a closer look at this situation and de-list any players that are being sold when listing should not have been possible. In practical terms, this means all players listed that belong to teams that were always within their transfer limit will STAY on the transfer list. All players listed by teams that have exceeded their limits will be removed from the transfer list. The teams can then choose to re-list those players again (if they have the right to sell) given the communicated transfer limits.

We are sorry for the "scare," but this way no players will be sold against the rule, and teams that may have listed too many players by mistake today will have a chance to sell them with a small delay.

10-26-2022 Maintenance on Youth and Match Archive

On Monday morning, October 31, we are doing maintenance on the databases for youth teams and archived data (like old match results).

When the archive is offline you'll not be able to transfer list or see match histories for players and you will not get correct data from old matches and stats.

10-9-2022 Application Error on Youth Players

An issue has arisen regarding application errors on youth player pages. We hope to be able to fix this at some point tomorrow. It is no longer necessary to inform your Gamemasters about it.

As a workaround, you can use the HT mobile app or go to the HT mobile website (https://m.hattrick.org). We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

10-4-2022 Release Notes - October 4, 2022

The following fixes and improvements have been released:

• It is now possible to remove your additional teams from your previous teams list on your manager page, if for some reason you no longer want to show them. Please note that this action is irreversible.

• When viewing a live match, players are no longer seen on the pitch after the final whistle. They may have gone to the dressing room, the clubhouse, or possibly home.

As always, we released other minor bug fixes and improvements to improve your experience on the HT site.

9-2-2022 Friday Morning Downtime

This morning, the site was down for a few hours due to a database issue. The site was up again around 10:30 HT-time (CET). Transfers with deadlines occurring during the downtime, as well as transfers with deadlines lasting until 12:00, had their deadlines extended. We are sorry for the inconvenience. All systems are working again now.

8-25-2022 Ladder Fairness Update

We have changed the intervals of teams which can be challenged when you participate in a ladder competition. In a ladder, you can challenge teams above you, and as you progress upward the number of teams you can challenge will narrow. By design, there have always been certain bottlenecks in ladders where it becomes harder to find an opponent, since you are a point where your selection is smaller while the teams just behind you still have a bigger selection. We have made a number of changes to make these bottlenecks less painful, primarily by adding more intervals, especially within the top 200 positions in a ladder. We also fixed a bug which caused some teams with lower rankings to get smaller selections.

These bottlenecks have been especially noteworthy in the Anniversary Ladder competition, given its size and the fact that it operates at a higher speed.

Given this, we have decided to extend the Anniversary Ladder. Teams that end at the top on the original finish date will receive their prizes, but we will also have a new end date at the end of 2022 - four more months in which everyone will get a chance to grab a new set of prizes.

These fixes are already in effect, and apply to all ladders.

7-22-2022 Double Promotion Bonus, Trophies and Fan Contribution (HTAL)

Because of a bug, some HTAL (Anniversary League) teams received the promotion bonus twice, as well as double trophies and fan contributions. This will be corrected on Monday, so be advised to be careful spending this unexpected money.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

7-19-2022 HTAL - Upcoming Season Info

All teams will play in the same cup. There will be no divisional cup for Division VII.

Only the first season for any new league has cup matches at neutral stadiums. This is because teams don't have any rankings yet. The upcoming season's cup matches will have home and away teams.

The deadline is what counts for transfer limits, so if you put a player on the transfer list at the end of the season with a deadline that extends into the next season, that counts toward the limit of the upcoming season.

In the upcoming season, the top 2 teams in Division VI will promote directly. For Division VII, the "usual" promotion rules apply.

The "usual" rules means that only the first position will have the chance to promote, with the top half of series winners promoting directly to replace positions 7-8 in Division VI, while the lower half of series winners will play qualifiers against teams that finish in positions 5 and 6 in Division VI.

7-12-2022 Release Notes - July 12, 2022

The following fix was released:

• We fixed an issue where saving training plans did not work because the spinner kept spinning forever.

As always, we implemented other minor bug fixes and improvements to enhance your HT experience.

7-11-2022 Promotion in HTAL

For this first season of the Hattrick Anniversary League, all teams placed that first and second in the lowest division will directly promote and receive the corresponding bonus. For this reason, we deleted the qualification matches that were erroneously created for next weekend. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

6-7-2022 Application Error for Youth Players

Currently clicking on any youth player will result in an application error. We will try to solve the issue as soon as possible, the latest being tomorrow morning when we have all hands on deck. There is no need to inform your Game Masters (GMs) about this. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

As a work around, for now you can use the HT app (or (https://m.hattrick.org)) and fire or promote players from there.

Update: The issue has been resolved.

5-23-2022 Youth and Archive Downtime

The server we use for youth teams and archived data (like old match results) is currently down. The hardware used for this database is not working as it should, and we are moving everything to a backup machine. This takes time - it can take up to 24 hours - but we hope it can be done sooner. We are sorry for any issues this may cause for you as a manager.

UPDATE 1500 CET: The recovery went faster than we hoped. Youth and archive pages should now be working again.

5-13-2022 Board Reserves Calculations Based on Training Week

Following user feedback, we have changed which days are considered when calculating how much the Board will retain after a player sale (something which only happens to so called "Gold Bar" players).

It used to be based on the calendar week (Monday morning 06.00 a.m. being the cutoff), but we will now instead use the Training Week (with the training session on Thursday or Friday, depending on your league, being the start and end of the week). We agree with managers that this makes much more sense, since the considerations of how many minutes a player should play are directly aligned with training planning, and to have the two mechanisms follow different schedules is confusing. This change has now been implemented.

5-2-2022 New Draw for HTAL Division Battles

Due to an error in the upcoming round of the Division Battles in the Hattrick Anniversary League, it was necessary to delete the matches for this Saturday and create new ones. We are sorry for this, but there was no way to solve the problem without recreating the draw. Any lineups already set will need to be submitted again. No other leagues are affected.
