I've had this idea for a while but never shared.
Wondering if there could be a setting for Franchise that allows users to play through the season and the rosters update when the actual team (in real life) makes a trade or a roster move, etc. and then that is replicated within the users Franchise file.
I am not sure if this is realistically possible since the save files and update files, etc. and how the information could be transitioned to the videogame world... but....
I’ve thought about this too and wondered what the barriers would be. Would definitely need to switch off in-game injuries, and there would be many players in your franchise universe that end up with off-field injuries to compensate for their IRL injuries.
Stats would differ too which means there may be some unexpected and unjustified send-downs and call-ups.
