Agreed, this one was on my biggest disappointments with the game really. I want my horrible managing/GMing to mean something. If I piss off the owner, there should be consequences. I've never even had a spending cap contraction, and there were times in my 160+ year dynasty in iOOTP12 that I should most definitely have been fired.

Maybe you just add an option in line with the other options (allow DH, allow trades/injuries etc) to allow firing

Think the Devs said way back when that this was implimented to be a bit more forgiving to the newer players ...

Think the finance aspect is a different proposition. In other games (Football Manager for example) if you are way over budget then the board take control and force transfers through without you having any say in the matter to ultimately bring the account back in order .... think this might be good as I have ended up about $100M over budget one season once arbitration kicked in.
Granted I couldn't sign anyone or resign guys whose contacts were due to expire but I still had the option to continue way over budget for the entire season !

Yes, I outlived around 10 owners. I'm sure my 150 year old son would have continued on the tradition.

I'll ask Sebastian, but my guess right now is that we probably won't add this, as iOOTP's strengths lie in its simplicity. We can't include everything that's in OOTP.

Same with the player creator. Since we added a player editor this year, not sure a player creator will be coming any time soon, but I'll ask about that too.

I don't feel like a player creator is even necessary at all with the player editor. Just edit some nobody prospect into whatever player you want to add. I'd love the ability to be fired but if there's one thing I want most its a league editor for next year as a nice sequel to the player editor

I asked Markus and Sebastian about the player creator and the ability to get fired. Markus liked both ideas and asked Sebastian to add them to the to-do list. I don't know if they could get added to this version, but my guess is probably not, since Sebastian is dealing with FHM 2014 *and* 2015 right now and likely won't turn his attention to iOOTP again until after FHM 2015 ships. (Release date TBA, but sometime this fall.)

If those things are added to iOOTP, it will probably be next year.

So are we getting any more updates to iOOTP this year?

Right now, unfortunately, you should assume there won't be any more updates. Sebastian is hard at work on the FHM 2014 update while simultaneously dealing with FHM 2015 development, so he has zero time to focus on iOOTP. He won't have time until after FHM 2015 ships, at which point baseball will be done or almost done, so I don't know if it would make sense for an iOOTP update anyway.
