It was quite clear from Steam users that this wasn’t good enough. So I went back to the drawing board. The next screenshot is from February 2017. In this case, I changed the home screen to show the standings by default instead of a dashboard-style approach as I had done previously.

The teams are all parody/knockoffs of NHL teams, instead of randomly chosen city-nickname-logo combos from previous iterations.

Better. But not good enough. More polish (November 2017). “1993 Vomit Brother” suggested I use more material design techniques, and they seem to have helped. Many of the graphics are now procedural instead of from files.

Is this adequate? Time will tell.
