Played OOTP a few years ago (great game, just not a baseball fan) and am really looking forward to this. OOTP is a great game, and if they can get this on par with OOTP from a few years ago it'll be a great game as well. I am a text sim geek so this is huge we're finally getting another hockey game. Now just need to get a new football / college football- waiting for Front Office Football to get an update.

To me it's more of a "Please, kind sir, oblige by taking my money for the awesomeness you have prepared for us."

I'm ridiculously excited about this.

I've played the EHM games since I got the freeware version back in the early 2000's. It's nice to finally have somewhat of a spiritual successor to the series.

I can't wait for this either. I've heard so much about the original game and I have friends that play OOTP Baseball and said that it would be well worth it to get this when it comes out.

Forgive me for teasing you guys, but just starting a 1984 game using the Oilers is pretty damn sick. Browsing the rosters etc. It's gonna be pretty damn cool when it's finished.

Just found out about this. I've put more hours in EHM (mostly freeware, but plenty of 07 and 05 as well) than almost everything else in my life as sad as that is. Can't believe how excited I am about this. Cannot wait. Historical mode is cool, not my thing too too much, but wow, any text based simulation manager for hockey is the most exciting thing...I resorted to buying a freaking soccer management game this year (Football Manager 2012) just to get my management fix in, and I know nothing about soccer. Hells yes.

I believe there will not be a sim engine at least at the beginning.

Really looking forward to a new sim engine for some fantasy leagues down the line.

I'm still waiting to see if it will do everything I need though. I want a Commish & GM portal pretty badly so roster management is on the onus of the other users, not just one person. Coaches, Scouting, Prospect Management/Development, Player Development, automatic statistics & game results are a must.

If I can get a game which will do all of that I'd gladly drop money to make it happen and probably even finally take the dive into a domain purchase for a league rather than just run off of free forums and community effort.

No sim engine in a sim-based game?

Text commentary only, for the initial version.
