Which announced feature are you most looking forward to?

We did this poll last year, and possibly even with OOTP 16 if I'm remembering correctly.

Which new announced feature are you most excited about?

Edit: And of course I forgot the Challenge mode. If a mod wants to go ahead and add it to the poll feel free. If not, just consider the "other" option as a part of that.

Tournaments.

I think the first one I will do is a "tournament of the states" in a fictional US League.

Tournaments. No doubt. Followed by the inclusion of the Negro Leagues in the historical minors database.

None of the above: for me, it's the ability to import individual historical Negro Leaguers and minor leaguers into my fictional league. Other than a more accessible interface, that's been number one on my wish list since I started playing this game. Here's hoping the promised interface adjustments give me my other top wish as well!

Highlight reels hands down. The main thing I do is AI only sims, so highlight reels make it a lot better for me to do these quickly.

Tournaments will be the reason I buy it for the 11th straight year. I thought last year was extremely lackluster in features but I bought to support so they can hopefully one day get to an above average 3D representation. Another step forward this year, really anxious to see if that engine is somewhere more exciting in a few years.

Maybe a developer can drop in and give a short description of what 3D highlights are.
Replays with the pawns. Little movies. Something else.
I am hinging my pre order on this option.
Cheers

Pawn movements need to be completely redone. Playing a game in the Baker Bowl and a guy hits the ball to RF, it hits off the wall and come back towards 2B. The CF picks up the ball and fires it to 2B, after the runner had stopped at 2B and he is out. huh? Seen things like this very often lately.
Glad to see Negro Leaguers added also want to see more of this Challenge thing.

My top 3:

1. "OTHER" - I'm hoping the morale improvements include a GM/Manager having some other way to impact the morale of their team. I feel like in OOTP17, you just could not do enough with any of it.

2. "Promotions/Relegations" - I started a fictional league a few years ago and I might do it again based on this.\

3. "Negro Leagues" - THIS is a great addition. Wel done.

3D mode is great, but OOTP has always been about content for me. Glad they are adding these features.

The fancy new features do nothing for me, I'm all about getting a better game engine every year. Therefore the revamped injury system and improved AI trade logic are the 2 things I'm most looking forward too.

Injuries! Detailed medical reports, the grisly truth, every torn ligament listed, every broken bone in your shortstop's leg that was sheared off when he collided with the catcher. And was out, too.

Challenges could be interesting, too, but I need info on that.

I selected Tournaments hoping that it will generate some new interest.

I sure hope they improve the trading offers for the players on your trading block. Right now it's basically useless imo.

That's your right but since it is your choice, why complain? Are the announced features not sufficient?
