FrozenCherry Hockey - Relaunch for 2022
Season 21, Day 1
I am writing this message on January 16th, 2022. As you can see, the simulator hasn't been generating games for quite a few years. To the few people who were interested, I'm sorry that it has taken so long to get the game running again. I have personally written e-mails to the few members who have signed up over the years, but sadly, I never received a reply.

I've never charged money for this. I've never asked for money. I've never added a payment system to the site. I've never even added a donation button.

The game originally ran from 1999-2000. It was a small group of between 10-20 members. We used to hang out on a messenger application and chat about the game, as well as other topics and common interests. It was like a group of friends getting together to play Dungeons and Dragons or Board Games and having a fun time. My hope was that I could recreate that in 2008 with Frozen Cherry but to my dismay, it was a different internet in 2008, and it is certainly a different internet as I write this in 2022.

So where do we go from here?

I have been redesigning the entire game from scratch. I've added over 80 different nationalities to the game world, including 76 national teams in the World Ice Hockey Association. I've added new teams to the leagues. The old player profiles have been redesigned and will now be an integral part of the experience. The user interface has been completely redesigned and modernized. The simulator has been rewritten and will be simulating games again soon. I have plans to redraw the player profile photos to make them look nice on modern screens, and revamp this news section.

...and for the first time, I will be accepting donations to support the continued development of the project. I am not a corporation, or a team of people. There is no "we", it is just me. I am a designer, an artist, a programmer, and a fan of Hockey. I have a vision of bringing the world of Frozen Cherry to life for a small group of internet friends who want to hang out and play a game together. The simulator should be ready to begin generating new games and statistics within the next month or two (February-March 2022). Certain changes to the site will be made to support the new simulator. The changes to the website's User Interface, including new features, will be uploaded as soon as there are enough people interested in testing it. Until then, I am working on it offline in my free time.

If you are interested in managing a team, please sign up and write to me through the contact page! Thank you for your interest and support! It really does make the work feel worthwhile to know that people appreciate it.

FrozenCherry Hockey - New Features
Season 9, Day 1
Player Nationalities! You may have noticed that team rosters now list a player's nationality next to his name, represented by that nation's flag. FrozenCherry Hockey is a completely fictional fantasy hockey simulation utilizing fictitious player names and teams. Therefore, care is always taken to create a plausible game world. For player nationalities, nations are represented in a way that recognizes the popularity of the sport of ice hockey in that country as well as other factors such as the country's population and the location of the league in which he will play. More on this below.
There are two new hockey leagues in the FrozenCherry hockey management game! The CPHL is a new North American fantasy hockey league with nine teams to start but rumors are that the league is looking to compete with the RPIHL for marketshare and is expected to add more teams in the seasons ahead. The CPHL is named after, and inspired by the creative imagination of artist Joseph Caylor. Almost all of the CPHL team logos are based upon his sketches and all of the CPHL teams were named by him.
Fantasy International Ice Hockey Begins! The World Ice Hockey Association (WIHA) will bring international fantasy hockey to FrozenCherry! 40 countries from around the world are currently represented with rosters that include players from the RPIHL, BMHL, SWHL and CPHL. Player skill is biased toward the countries in which ice hockey is most popular. Sweden will be tough to beat while South Korea is a good choice for a manager who is up for a challenege. Management of WIHA teams is currently granted by request only. If you are interested in managing a WIHL team in addition to your current team, please click on the "Home" tab and select the Email icon to contact me.
New 2 month format! Based on feedback, FrozenCherry will be switching to a format which plays each season in 2 months as opposed to the current 3 month format. 6 game seasons will pass each calendar year, allowing teams to evolve more quickly from a bottom of the barrel team to a cup winner while balancing retirements, entry drafts and wise trade decisions. Thank you for the feedback! Your continued support helps make FrozenCherry better every day.

Atlanta Spirits - Atlanta Newspaper
Season 8, Day 74
"Fans Mourn Spirits" - Fans knew the Spirits were competing against an exorcism for the last two seasons while the team struggled. For two consecutive seasons the team just barely preserved its tradition of never missing the playoffs. The future was made even more bleak when team star Ken Woolem announced his retirement. Italian GM Gregorio Bertoncini was quoted as saying "It's like Luigi [Lopze] and I always say, is like pizza. You have to keep the toppings together or it falls apart. Make it like so and you have a working team. We are making perfect recipe. It may take a time but I always have the faith in Spirits." With centerman Margarito Kriger and defenseman Rogelio Cardillo retiring too, it looks like the Spirits might have to rise from the grave with a vengeance.

Detroit Spartans - Announcement
Season 7, Day 87
It is only a matter of time before the Detroit Spartans win the cup. Our fans can count on that. With a season title win in Season 6 and then reaching the playoff finals in Season 7, there are high expectations for Season 8 and we will not disappoint.
Today is Day #218
