Training Camp?

We still don't have any real training camp? No scrimmages? No way to call everyone up or invite free-agents for a tryout? This was a very useful feature in EHM and something I quite enjoyed.

It feels really fake in FHM right now. You can't really treat you team and prospects in a realistic way. It's kind of a bummer and currently the pre-season serves absolutely no purpose. Is this feature planned?

We definitely want to expand the preseason in a large way, there's been a plan drawn up for it for a while. But we're going to have to make some significant modifications to the way roster management works in the game first, so it's something for the longer-term.

Perhaps some minimal things could be done in the interim? before you get Training Camp properly implemented:

1. No roster limit
2. No penalties for sending players down

Right now it's really unpleasant to properly test your players without screwing things up.

Roster size is a big part of the reason for not doing it immediately, unfortunately - it would really blow up the roster AI, as it stands now, to change the roster size mid-season. But I'll see if we can loosen up the restrictions on player movement in pre-season (e.g., temporarily shut off all morale penalties for demoting guys) so it's easier to look at different people in the exhibition games without your team revolting against you.
