Other ideas not as related to the above: trade AI improvement. Mainly, declare buyers and sellers. Maybe even have a designation of buyer or seller when you look to make trades. It can be like a bar with "seller" on the left and "buyer" on the right. In April, everyone is in the middle. As the season progresses, each team moves toward one side or the other based on how their team is doing. If a team is a seller come mid July, then the AI will look to trade expiring contracted good players for prospects...
As unlikely as it probably is, my biggest hope would be the option for expanding the league. I would love to be able to do a fantasy draft.
In season contract extensions as well as opt out clauses, as have become prevalent the last couple seasons would be great.
3 team trades as well as the option to be able to trade more than 3 players per side at once.
I also think it would be super cool to be able to merge RTTS with Franchise so I can play with my RTTS player in my franchise universe. I'm sure this is very unlikely, but it would be awesome.
Does anyone have any comments or anything to add? How likely do you think it is any of these ideas make it into a future game?
