In terms of the number of teams, how small or big can fictional leagues be?

I love you! If I pay you now will you release the game sooner? How about if I buy two copies?

As few as 6 and as many as 30 in the default fictional setups.

I like how you can hirer a Head Coach or Retired person can join a Staff or Front Office.
League E. Is needed.
Is League Structure turned so we can move Teams around or import Historical Teams?
Can we randomize Cities and pick Regions? Have Leagues feed into like the NHL for Draft? World Templates so we can add them to like a NHL League? Trade with other Leagues?

People are fully welcome of course to have features that are super important to them, or bad feelings if things don't work how they think they should. And I know there are issues with FHM 2014 as there are always going to be bumps in the road in any game and especially a new franchise ...

But, dismissing a game that you haven't even played yet and just presuming it won't work as intended is a bit over the top I think.

Can you have multiple GM's in an offline league, or would you have to play online if you wanted to have multiple GM's control multiple teams?

By the way, it sounds great so far.

Great News! FHM 2 Is coming out much earlier than I thought! I have a question, will the new training system affect historical leagues too in a way where there is more randomness in terms of development? Also, will the AI pick better players in the historical draft? lol, Great work I'm really happy with the news!

Are you talking multiple real humans, playing on one offline league file?

Or one human, being GM of multiple teams in one league?

Either way, I am inclined to think neither is possible.. but I will let Sebastian chime in conclusively on that.

There is of course option in the historical mode to have the players perform more closely to how they did in real life, or to simply let the FHM game engine take over, which would lead to more randomness and deviation away from exact history of course.

Sebastian will have to confirm whether the training system will be fully implemented for historical too.

And on your last point, yes, we would certainly hope the AI will perform better in all aspects of the game, including historical drafting. That stuff is of course constantly being worked on and tweaked and will continue to be so before release, you can be assured.

Great news! I'm sold! The historical game was too predictable in the old version and now I can have more fun with historical and definitely want to try letting the FHM engine take over for more randomness and deviation. I always wanted that and that's going to make Historical worth playing! Thank you!

Sounds good! I'm glad to see you've concentrated on the basics, if things work out as well as they sound this should be a much more satisfying release.
And late May? Earlier than I was expecting!

Very happy to hear that expansion teams made it in, I'd love to get some more details on how that works. Is there an expansion draft? If I control a team other than the new one do I have to protect players?

Will there be a salary cap in this game? Will it be the same or similar to the NHL. Will it be customisable?

1) Will there be a demo? I don't mind the $30 price tag at all if I can try the game out first.

2) All the talk about online multiplayer, but how's the hotseat multiplayer? Is it in the game?

Will expansion teams be automatically assigned to divisions ?

What about playoffs after expansion? Still the same number of teams in the playoffs or will more teams be added,
