Trade AI Bugs

I've enjoyed playing FHM3, but over the course of my games I have come across some bugs in the game's trade AI that can be exploited to really give you an unfair advantage.

-During or immediately after the NHL draft in PtG, you can trade for recently selected prospects, and sometimes for much less value than the pick that was used to select them. For example, during a draft I traded for the player that was picked 2nd overall and in return I gave a 1st round pick of mine that was 3 drafts away, and my team had just come off a cup win so it wasn't a high value pick.

-In historical games, there seems to be a disconnect between consensus player ratings, how the AI values players when drafting, and how the AI values players when trading. Example: I got to the draft with Jaromir Jagr, and he had a consensus potential of 0.5. Based off this, I would assume he would be a late round pick, but instead he got drafted 5th overall. When I decided to try and trade for him shortly after the draft, the team gave him up for practically nothing.

-While playing in the WHL in PtG, I can trade for any underage prospects for less than nothing. I acquired Peyton Krebs (1st pick in the 2016 WHL Draft) and a 3rd round pick in the 2017 WHL Draft for a 15th round pick in the 2017 WHL Draft and a fringe CHLer. I don't know if this works in the other CHL leagues, but it is definitely a problem in the WHL.

Looking forward to FHM4 and hoping that these issues will be resolved for the next game

In PTG, didn't test other game modes, the AI seems to have very often lost reason. During the draft day, I can offer a single 3 stars guy for somthing like 2 or 3 five stars guys alongside 2-3 first round picks.

I do hope FHM 4 won't have such game breaking issues, as I can't really make any trade at all to be fair for the opposing teams.
