Play online against your friends! Who is the best manager?
Rated the best online hockey manager game by the players! According to GM Games!
Game Plan Hockey Manager is an online hockey manager game with tremendous depth, inspired by the excellence of Football Manager. It's played in a MMORPG fashion where you act as the manager of a hockey team and compete with other managers from all over the world. It's designed to be easy to play but hard to master and we're proud to say that we're constantly evolving our game engine's AI-level and creating a very sophisticated experience where both player skills and personalities are of importance.
A clean and easy-to-use interface is important to us and the game is played directly in your browser and is designed for both desktops and phones/tablets. Game Plan Hockey Manager is NOT a Pay-to-win game — no shortcuts to bring your team to the top. Instead GPHM has a small monthly fee that guarantees an equal and fair competition for everyone. We really love the game of hockey and all development are based on four core values; Love for stats, A realistic feel, Details that matter and Play-by-play simulations.
Hockey fans love their stats. Most of us can browse hockey databases for hours and why shouldn´t a game offer the same possibility? Therefore all player and team stats are highly detailed, saved over the seasons and plays an important role in the game, not least when picking your next transfer target.
Although the game doesn´t contain real players or teams, it´s designed to feel as realistic as possible. Even with a great roster you won´t win any games if you don´t pay attention to players confidence, contract happiness, fatigue, the team spirit or even who you pick as captains. It all adds up to what makes a team a success or a failure.
Height, weight, skills, age, psychological profile, you name it - it all matters. Every detail you see in the game is of importance. Nothing is for show. And why should it? A manager game is all about the little things and it´s by paying attention to the details that can give a manager an advantage over his or hers fellow competitors.
No one wants a random game result. That´s why all games are simulated play by play. Your players will face the opponents players shift by shift throughout the entire game. The tactics you choose will be up against your competitors. This will force the game momentum to change, so choose them wisely.
Wide selection av tactics, line focuses and player roles to create a fun and realistic experience.
Rich player profiles with great level of detail including lots of different player skills and personalities.
Create your own team and jersey from a great selection of cities, names, mascots and colors.
Join our community of like-minded and share experiences, ask questions and build team rivalries.
The game is played within the context of a game world which means that there is a limited amount of teams available. Game worlds come in different simulation speed options to fit most schedules; Slow (one game every 24h), Normal (one every 12h) and Fast (one every 6h). Each game world contains of six playable league levels with 28 teams in each level. Together these leagues form the main competition where teams may be promoted or relegated throughout the league levels where the ultimate goal is to win the Golden Cup. These leagues are fictive leagues based in North America, but there are also non playable leagues, teams and players in Europe making each Game World the complete hockey experience.

In Part 1 of this blog post I mentioned something about a second meaning of the relaunch of this game. I will in this second part elaborate more about this. But to put it briefly: I’m turning this hobby project of mine into a serious business!
You may have already heard something about a big release later this fall. So what is so special about this release, you might wonder? Well, this release will not just include new features - it will improve and change the competition of the game. Besides this it will also, in two ways, be a relaunch of the game. Sounds confusing? Don’t worry, I will elaborate and hopefully bring some clarity in this blog post divided into two parts.
