- Between Monday 27 and Tuesday June 28, 2016, ascents and descents, updates season finale, launching new season.
- Reopening of the game sometime Tuesday 28 June, 2016.
IMPORTANT: The auction market is not closed. We recommend that anyone put up for auction its players $ 0 and 72h from Friday until we close the game. If someone does auction a player for 0 and close the game before the auction ends 72h, it is your responsibility.

Players not renewed or missing: Remember to renew your players on last year of contract. Due to the difficulty of reviewing an old database to the change of season, if a user would "have disappeared players" when the season starts, only be able to serve users who demonstrate a screenshot players were not in last year of contract. The others are considered non-renewed.

Remember to renew your junior players in order to remove the "R" sign. Since last two season, only new users (less than 1 year playing) can protect their junior players with renewals.

The first matches will be played:
- The weekend of 2 and 3 July private leagues are played, so after the game opens again for the new season you can create/join private leagues.
- On Monday 4 start of the regular league season 26.

By the time the new season starts, remember these three rules:
- Players with no contract may be found using the assistant manager and scout, as usual.
- At 10 days the players who have not found a team will disappear from the game.
- During the first 3 days of league there will be no hostile clauses allowed, as usual. Hostile clause market opens early Wednesday 6 to Thursday 7 July at 0: 00h.

Note that during the opening of hostile clause servers are saturated and may have stability problems in the game. We cannot help it, so if anyone has any problem it's beyond our responsibility.
Likewise with the players without a team passing auction early in the season, sometimes auctions will end minutes later due to the large number of players out there. We have tried to put the maximum possible space to prevent this from happening, but be forewarned that can happen.]]>

UPDATES SEASON 15 http://en.ibasketmanager.com/foros/hilo.php?id=28836 Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:39:27 +0200
POSSIBILITY TO LOAN A PLAYER TO A HIGHER DIVISION

From this season we can loan our players to a higher division, both juniors and seniors.

REDUCTION OF THE TIME TO RECALL A LOAN – FROM 10 TO 7 DAYS
We had reduced to 7 days the time a player must pass without training to be claimed by his team owner. Thus we reduce the loss of quality of the player on loan without training.
The manager with pack manager can get the player back after only 5 days without any training scheduled.

TO PURCHASE SKILL POINTS
You will be able to purchase skill points or "power ups" with golden balls. Every season you will have the option to add 3 points to each player and distribute skills as you do now.
BUTTON TO ENABLE THE CHANGES IN ADVANCED FOULS
In advanced fouls screen, in tactics section, you will have a button to enable the advanced fouls.

COLOUR TO DIFFERENTIATE TRANSFERS
All agreement transfers, auctions and purchases by hostile clause will be differentiated by colours in both similar transfers screen and in transfer screen. The auctions will be shown in green, while the agreement transfers in red, which does not mean they are wrong. The purchases via hostile clause will not have any colour.

MOVE UP ADVANCED TACTICS
We fixed the bug that blocked the option to put up the advanced tactic in the list. Now you can change the position of the advanced tactic without having to deactivate and then activate it.

NEW ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES IN LOANS

We doubled the loan limit that the system offered to you when contracting a loan in finances screen.
Good news for all users because those who have never contracted a loan will get the double of money and those who have already used this option and have enlarged the limit will get the double of money.

PRESS RELEASE!!!!

Hi everyone,

Last season we wrote a sentence that said the 20 season should be a step forward in some aspects of iBasket manager, and we intend to do so.

As you know a while we decided to carry out new versions of our managers. A more consistent graphically with the current landscape of online games, with aspects that this is impossible to implement and develop a fully supported app versions. The result of this work came to light Striker Manager 2 in May 2014 and a few days APP Striker Manager 2 for Android and iOS.

We put all this in context to tell you that for a long time developing the new version of striker and iBasket has paralleled, but recently it has been decided this will no longer be the case due to lack of resources. The new version of iBasket manager exists unfinished (does not mean canceled) but there is no specific date for resuming development.

And this specifically as it affects the current iBasket? Well this means that we now have resources we can devote to re-engage the current version of iBasket.

The current iBasket is a very complete game with lots of options in these 20 seasons has evolved greatly. We have been given many suggestions-- and there are some things we cannot do and some things we can do. The game has its good points and its weak points, and as far as possible we are trying to correct these weaknesses and make improvements to the game best we can.

And to achieve this goal we must do it together, we can not do it alone! So we encourage you to continue to collaborate constructively with the game, in your comments, proposals for improvements that are possible in the day of the game. An example of this is our first update for this season:


UPDATES

1- BECOME THE PROMOTERS

It is a tool that has already been used for several seasons with pretty good results. It is a tool where you, the managers have the ability to spread the game simply with a link that you provide to, and copy it to the more sites the better.

The prize for the best promoter of each week will be the option to customize a player of his staff, both seniors and youth, to a maximum of 3 players per team.

Furthermore, this player will earn +5 points of progression. The features that can be customized are:
- Name and surname
- Country
- + 5 points progression

I leave the direct link on this page where there are also instructions to start earning visitors. The promoters button you can always find in the game's main page, under the Golden Balls button:

promoters

The first week we start to run for prizes Promoters would be from the opening of the new season 20 until Thursday, January 8th. The awards are always given on Thursdays.


2- (R) ABOLITION OF JUVENILE TO MANAGERS WITH MORE THAN 1 YEAR EXPERIENCE

From next season the possibility of renewing youth players with the R to all managers who take more than four seasons in the game, or what is the same, one year real in the game is removed.

That means that managers with less than one year of experience in the game can protect juveniles with R as now, but veteran managers can also clause players from managers who started playing recently. So before hostile clause night (within 2 weeks) will all have to be very careful to renew your contracts for Juniors.

Hopefully this initiative will encourage more market and to you of course.


3- SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS IN THE BOTS

It was a much needed improvement and highly demanded by all, but had its complications take place and we have to be alert to early season all work well. We can finally announce the following enhancements to system equipment bots:

- Teams bots system will always have 10 players on the roster.
- Players never will get injured.
- Players will not lose energy or morale (energy and morale will go back to 99 after each game), which can make them a little more competitive than before, so watch a little.
- Players will not exhaust their contract.
- Players will not age.


4- TEMPORARY PROMOTION OF YOUTH

From next season the temporary promotion of youth become 24Hour with 6 Temp Promotions possible for each junior per season.

Before this change, you could temporarily promote a player 2 times per season and the duration was 72 hours. From now on each player can be temp promoted up to 6 times per season with a 24 hour duration for each temporary promotion.


5- NEW GOLDEN STARS

They will return GOLD some stars at auction for everyone!

THE MVP of the month in the ACB have appeared in the auction market manager iBasket star. So the beginning of each month will be auctioned one new gold star. The first gold star that will be auctioned will be the following December when the ACB designate the MVP of the month. In January will auction.

If any player who repeats designation as MVP of the month in the CBA and already auctioned earlier, iBasket choose at their discretion, then the second best player of the month would be auctioned.


6- TOUCH OF ENERGY IN THE SIMULATOR

Some tweaks will be made in the simulator during the game close by the change of season.

We will try to give anything less value to the specific parameters of the players at the time of assessing the average for a player to perform an action during the match. They give more importance to energy and power ups in each. The aim is to give more importance to the fatigue of our players (and repeat again for the record, a player without power does not mean that it is canceled the party and can not do anything, then you have less chance to make things right) .

These tweaks affect almost every action of our players in the game:
- 2ptr
- 3ptr
- penetrations
- Offensive rebounds
- Rebounds in defense
- Steals
- Blocks
- assists
- defense



That's it for this early season number 20. As you see from us believe it is a good statement of intent to improve.

Wish you on behalf of U-PLAY Online Happy holidays to all and a Happy 2015!

SCHEDULE:
Discover the new schedule for next season!
- Season 15 finishes on Sunday 29th December 2013.
- The game is going to be closed on next Monday 30th December
- On Tuesday 31th and Wednesday 1st will be generated the new season and fix the updates (promotions, relegations, starting new simulator version)
- IBM will run normally sometime Thursday 2nd January 2014.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
- As you know on the auction market will not be closed. We earnestly advise you not to put your players up for auction for 0 Euros and from now until the closing game. If a manager decides to do it and the game is closed before the end of the 72 hours auction, the manager will do it under his entire responsibility.
- Don't forget to re-sign the players in last year contract before the end of this season. IF you don't, they will leave your team and go diretly on auction for 0 euros.

First games of next season will take place:
- During the weekend (4th and 5th January) private leagues can be played. Once the game is opened again you can join the private league you want to.
- The regular league is going to start on Monday morning, 6th January.

When starting the new season, remember these 3 rules:
1- Free players (without contract) may be signed via the Scout and General Manager as usual.
2- Players without team will disappear after 10 days.
3- All the players will have 3 days of hostile clause protection, so you can re-sign without problem. The hostile clause protection will last 3 days and will end on Wednesday 8th midnight, so the “hostile clause market” will be opened at Wednesday 8th midnight - Thursday 9th dawn.

Note that at the opening of “hostile clause market” servers are saturated and there may be stability problems in the game. We cannot manage this problem, so if anyone has a problem is beyond our responsibility.
The same problem occurs with players without team put up for auction at the beginning of the season. Sometimes auctions do not end at time due to the large number of players available for auction. We hope there are not any problem but we are not sure so you are warned that might happen, so do not trust during the auction.]]>
UPDATES season 17 http://en.ibasketmanager.com/foros/hilo.php?id=33344 Fri, 28 Mar 2014 14:22:29 +0100
SYSTEM BOT RESTRUCTURING

We have decided to restructure all the system bots for next season.
As you know, system bots are teams managed by the system.

We will move all the system bots to 6th division and we will try to group them in the same groups. In this way we’ll try to get the users playing matches against real managers in all the divisions of the game.

This will have a logical consequence: there will be some incomplete groups. That is why we will promote RANDOMLY some teams in third or fourth place to complete the upper groups if necessary. Note that this will be randomly decided, so please don’t claim if you don’t have the chance to promote.

TEAMS AND GROUPS MIXED
As we did in previous seasons, all the teams from the same division will be mixed in order to play against new opponents in the new season.

- From next season you will have the chance to get back to your team those loan players that do not train for 10 days straight the possibility of loan players do not train for 10 days straight. You will have to be aware of your loan players because any employee will send you a notice.
If a loan player does not train, the tenth day will appear in the player profile a button to cancel the loan. The owner of the player can get the player back without consent of the manager where the player was loaned. Once the player is completely recovered, he can be loaned again to another team.

IMPROVEMENTS IN SCHOOLS
- We have improved the time and average of players from schools. We decided to reduce the time you get new juniors and to improve the initial average of these juniors. Example: two seasons ago you got one junior every 15 days from schools in Lithuania. Last season you got one junior per month from the same school. From next season you will get him every 3 weeks approximately.

RESTRICTIONS IN PURCHASES BY HOSTILE CLAUSE
- We will apply some restrictions regarding purchases by paying hostile clause in juniors. There will be a couple of adjustments:
1. The restriction between divisions regarding transfer agreements of juniors will be removed. Remember that you should show the forecast of the player to purchase by transfer agreement
2. The restriction between divisions regarding purchases by paying hostile clause has been expanded. Now teams from 1st division can “hostile” players until 4th division, teams from 2nd division until 5th division and teams from 3rd division can “hostile” players until 6th division.

GIVE GOLDEN BALLS
- Give Golden Balls to friends! From next season you will have the option to purchase golden balls and give them to the user you want to.
Note: This option is available only with golden balls purchased at the moment of sending the gift, so you cannot give golden balls you have already in your account or golden balls gotten via free golden balls systems.

We would like to point out that we are working hard on the fully redesign of ibasketmanager. A new design that excites us so much and we are sure it will make a breakthrough in the game that all of you will enjoy. Here you have a screenshot of what will be the future of ibasketmanager!

SCHEDULE and UPDATES SEASON 13 http://en.ibasketmanager.com/foros/hilo.php?id=22741 Thu, 28 Mar 2013 15:10:06 +0100
Discover the new schedule and updates for next season!
- Season 12 finishes on Sunday 31st March 2013.
- The game is going to be closed on next Thursday 2nd
- On Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th will be generated the new season and fix the updates (promotions, relegations, starting new simulator version)
- IBM will run normally sometime between Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: As you know on the auction market will not be closed. We earnestly advise you not to put your players up for auction for 0 Euros and from now until the closing game. If a manager decides to do it and the game is closed before the end of the 72 hours auction, the manager will do it under his entire responsibility.

First games of next season will take place:
- During the weekend (6th and 7th April private leagues can be played. Once the game is opened again you can join the private league you want to.
- The regular league is going to start on Monday morning, 8th March.

When starting the new season, remember these 3 rules:
1- Free players (without contract) may be signed via the Scout and General Manager as usual.
2- Players without team will disappear after 10 days.
3- All the players will have 3 days of hostile clause protection, so you can resign without problem. The hostile clause protection will last 3 days and will end on Wednesday 10th midnight, so the “hostile clause market” will be opened at Wednesday 10th midnight - Thursday 11st dawn.

Note that at the opening of “hostile clause market” servers are saturated and there may be stability problems in the game. We cannot manage this problem, so if anyone has a problem is beyond our responsibility.
The same problem occurs with players without team put up for auction at the beginning of the season. Sometimes auctions do not end at time due to the large number of players available for auction.
This season we change the system and we hope the problem will be fixed but we are not sure so you are warned that might happen, so do not trust during the auction.

UPDATES SEASON 13

NEW POWER-UPS

One of the main updates of this season is the appearance of power-ups. Power-ups are special abilities that will be used to improve certain characteristics of our players, and make them more unique. As we have many of their characteristics at 99 already, we will be able to give them an extra boost.

Now inside the players’ info page we will have a new row that will show us player’s level progress. When the bar reaches its end it will mean that the player has completed one level more, and we will have another point to assign to any of the player’s power-ups. The bar will then reset and it will start filling for the next level.





For each level that a player achieves, the manager will be able to assign one point to any of the new 12 power-ups available. Each power-up has 5 ranks, meaning you can assign 5 points to each power-up, increasing its effect.

Quick facts about powerups

- At the start of the next season, all of the players in the game will have some points to spend in power-ups. The number of points to spend will depend on the player’s age. An older player will have more points available. This will increase the market value of older players, as they will be more effective than younger ones.
- The value “loyalty” has been removed from the player info page. It has not been deleted from the game thought; it will be hidden from now on. It doesn’t affect mental average in any way.
- Each level will be more difficult to reach than the previous one. This means it will be fairly easy to complete first levels, but it will get more difficult from that point.

- A power-up cannot be improved to rank 2 until we have 2 other power-ups at rank one. And so on with powerups at rank 5.

- After each game played, players will gain experience points. Experience points are what allow players to reach new levels and use more power-ups.

- We will have to choose wisely what power-ups we want to apply to each player, as we won’t have more than 10-15 per player.

- The impact of power-ups in games is not too big. For example, if a player currently has a 30% of 3-points made, and we get to level 5 in “3-point shooter”, it doesn’t mean it’ll make 80% from now on. Best real players do not make more than 45% of 3-pointers anyway.

Here we show you an image with all the power-ups.





WHISTLE

We are glad to present a new communication tool for all game users. It’s called Whistle, a quite similar Twitter tool that will allow all users write comments to be read by their followers and be more connected with friends.

Features:
-To write messages to your followers and be able to read them too.
- To follow or unfollow any game user.
- To create trending topics using #.
- Being able to know the 10 trending topics of the moment.
- In some game screens the Whistle icon will appear to allow the user to create automatically a new message by clicking on it.

For example: If you want to communicate a game score or if your player has been MVP, a default whistle will be created.
You could find the whistle tool on the main game screen, next to the chat bar.




ASSISTANT COACH AND SCOUT
From now on, we will be able to search players with this parameters:

- Mental average
- Physical average
- Defense average
- Attack average

These options are only available using searches+ ( they cost golden balls )

PLAYER’S INFO PAGE
This page has suffered some important changes:
- We can now see every average number with decimals.
- Total average is shown in big, on the top-right corner.
- Player’s characteristics are now shown with colored bars.
- Loyalty has disappeared from this page.

SCHOOLS
The progression of players that come from the school has been increased. On the contrary, they will take more time to create new players. So in overall we will have less good players.

TAXES
From now on, each player transaction between teams will have a tax attached.

FIRE PLAYERS
The cost associated to fire a player has been increased. It will now be multiplied for the years remaining in that player’s contract. So we will have to be careful with the years we offer when re-signing players or signing a new player.

PLAYER AWARDS
After each game played in every division group, an award will be given to the MVP of the day. This award will be money for the team. This does not include private leagues, cup, or friendly matches.

UPDATES SEASON 12

CATERING

All stadiums will gain the ability to sell food and drinks. It works in a similar as the store we currently have, but adding some new twists to make it even more interesting.

We will have to produce foods/drinks, and they will be sold every time a match is played on our stadium. There will be a list of 20 differents elements to choose from. Each course or drink will have its own characteristics, and depending on them, it will have more or less popular with the different kind of people that come to the stadium. For example, people that buys a VIP ticket, will prefer to buy wine over beer, and someone who buys a general ticket will prefer a frankfurt over caviar. Depending on how many seats we have of each type, we will have to adapt our production to fullfill people needs.

Every course/drink has its own production time, production cost, and sell value. Like the store, catering service also has 5 levels, wchih will allow us to prepare new courses. Every level decreases production times as well. Some of them will be only available with golden balls though.

Catering has some differences with our current store though. We are selling food now, and food gets bad if it stays too much time in the fridge. In Striker Manager we are very sensible with 3rd world needs, and we do not allow food being wasted. So after every match, all the food that we have still on stock will be given away to charity, so we have to be aware not to produce too much, otherwise we might lose money.

HALL OF FAME

We have introduced a way to know how many merits a player currently has, in order to enter the hall of fame. It will be placed on the player's profile, and then on the Awards page. There you will find information on how many points does he have, how did he gained them, and how many points does he still need to accomplsih the HoF requirements.


NEW SILVER STAR JUNIORS FOR THE 13TH SEASON

We are going to auction a new set of silver star juniors on 13th season starting. Not the season we are starting but THE NEXT ONE.

These silver stars will be created and auctioned as the ones created this season. To view more details on how they are and its rules you can check past season's updates.
