Hoops Dynasty 3.0 Release Announcement Topic

Attention Hoops Dynasty Coaches!

Hoops Dynasty launched back in 2004. Over the years, it has evolved into the best college basketball simulation game of its kind through customer feedback and ideas from our development team. It’s about to evolve again!

Hoops Dynasty 3.0 is now ready after several seasons of beta testing (thank you to all our beta testers for their valuable feedback). In addition, we have been playing extensively ourselves and have been busy putting the finishing touches on what we believe is a tremendous step forward for the game.

HD 3.0 has a new design that can be played on any device, which is key for new user adoption, expanded marketing opportunities and will allow veteran coaches to play the game in nearly any situation.

Scouting and recruiting have been overhauled to better represent the actual real-life process, simplify the start-of-season learning curve for new users, and improve the overall gameplay for our veteran coaches.

Rather than bore you with paragraphs of text, we’ve created a couple visuals to help you digest the upcoming changes:
Because the scouting and recruiting changes affect the core of the game, the rollout of the new version is unique. As each world reaches the conclusion of its recruiting period, it will transition to the new version of the game within 48 hours and the season will continue. The first world to experience the upgrade will be the Wooden world.

Once the official update is in place across all worlds, marketing efforts will increase to bring new college basketball fans into the game.

The changes to scouting and recruiting are significant. For veteran coaches who have been following the same approach for years, this will be an adjustment. But we are confident coaches will adapt to the new system in a season or two and an entirely new web of scouting and recruiting strategies will emerge.

We’ll be closely monitoring the game, the forums and customer support tickets over the next couple months as the update is applied to each world. Feedback will be collected, reviewed and applied accordingly for future improvements, tweaks and additions.

Note: Any scheduled exhibition games will be removed when a world is upgraded to the new version.

Thank you,
