I'm trying to answer as many questions as possible, but if you happened to ask one I didn't get answer, it's not because I'm ignoring you.

Some questions I simply don't know the answer to and I don't want to simply guess, and/or it's above my level of knowledge and is something better suited to be answered by someone higher up the food chain.

However, I will definitely be striving to get you guys lots of information on this game between now and May. Between forum posts and regular blog posts, a lot of details will come out to get everyone pumped for the game, so sit tight and thanks for your continued patience!

Just curious, but you said there's 23 playable leagues in this game?? Do they include Canadian junior leagues and also US college teams or are they mostly just international leagues?? I didn't have FHM1 but definitely plan on getting FHM2.

Can't wait to hear more about tactics.
I didn't play FHM 14 but as someone that is going to be buying FHM 2 on release day this is a concern. While waiting for FHM 2 to come out i've been playing a bit of old school EHM. It's so annoying to check on a team like the Sharks and see they are struggling only to learn that they have sent a guy (Tomas Hertl) down to the minors who has 14 points in his first 21 games. Not realistic at all

In North-America we have the NHL, AHL, ECHL, FHL, QMJHL, WHL and OHL playable.

Seb - when will the Match Engine Patch for FHM2014 hit our machines?

Wating until early summer for FHM2 is just too long for me but playing FHM2014 with the old match engine won´t cut it either

Seems really great.

I've started to play fhm 2014 again after not playing it for a while (was not really that happt with it, but happy to support).

I'm really looking forward to better AI in computer teams. I mean, this save Toronto has pretty much dropped 4-5 of their best players on waivers.

Then it's kinda bugged about picks and after players are picked. For example, i tried to move up in the draft for NJ #2 pick first season, but they pretty much told me they did not want anything for the pick that i was willing to pay. That's not wierd or wrong at all since they are kinda in the need of rebuild. But then after a while in FA i saw their pick was not signed by them and i could trade the right of the player pretty dam cheap.

So they wanted alot for the pick, but when the player was pick and not signed it was pretty cheap. Unless it was som kind of arguement between the two (?) it's kinda bugged imo.

Beta tested FHM 1 liked it bought it was left with a sour taste I had plans for a 40 team league similar to the one I run in OOTP once the leagues were capped at 30 I never touched the game again. I am a huge customization fiend(I know a minority user wise) I was hoping the next release would have the ability to have more than 30 teams. Still unsure if I'll buy this edition or not as I basically wasted my money on the first one.
I do hope it continues to grow and will support and watch it grow from the bench for now I guess.

any plans to allow bigger leagues in the future?

No plans at the moment but that might change at some point.

Modern mode = real world hockey

Fictional mode = 1 to 3 leagues based on your choice with per-defined league structures.

In both modes you can do expansion (add 2 teams).

Thank you for the updates and responses to our questions. Looks like the game is coming along very nicely and I look forward to supporting this and future versions.

I did have a couple questions:

1.) In regards to scouting for an upcoming draft, will it be like Football Manager where you get a few basic stats on a player and it's up to you to scout and discover more about a prospect? Or is it similar to OOTP where you get all the stats and it depends your scouting director's attributes to tell how good the player is?

2.) Speaking of Football Manager, I've seen a few references in FHM 2 updates on how there will be similar features borrowed from FM to help flesh out the world. Could you clarify that? Is it referring to media interactions or referencing different story lines about the various leagues in the world?

I bought FHM 2014 not with the intention of spending a whole lot of time on it because I'm spoiled by OOTP and the endless features it provides.

I bought FHM 2014 to support the developers who are creating a hockey management simulation because hockey is my favorite sport and EHM is just too out-dated in my opinion.

I am excited for FHM 3, moreso than FHM 2. You will most likely still get my money for FHM 2 because I want you guys to know you are supported and I know you guys are working hard to get this game where everyone wants it to be.

I do have some concerns about FHM 2 such as not having free customization of league structures. I would really be interested in creating a custom league within the real world universe that directly competes with the NHL for talent and money. I also would love to be able to create a custom league and be able to grow that league to as many teams as I can dream of in a fictional universe.

Either way, I'm excited for the progress you guys are making. The screens look amazing and I can't wait to see what lies in the future.
