I used to love SLB - in fact, it is the game that originally drew me to the site. But I haven't played it in a while because it got so stale and boring with no updates. Not even a simple change in player salaries, which would at least change the playing field and drum up some temporary interest on my part.
I still have an HD team and I enjoy it quite a bit, but I won't play SLB until some meaningful change to the game takes place.
I think the developers are well aware of user frustration, and I think in large part they share it. Guys go to work for WiS because they WANT to write sports simulation games. But when the people who sign your checks say: "Write these thirty-seven pieces of software first, then maybe you can update SLB," well, what are you gonna do?
