When testing the new version of the game I realized that the file has to start at the beginning of the season. In old versions you could start in the offseason, but it seems that's not the case anymore. Therefore, both the draft and free agency will be run still using DDSPB1. I will release the scouting info tomorrow and the draft will start sometime next week. During the offseason, caretakers will still exist but trading with CPU teams will not be available. A rough estimate:
- 07/30 - Scouting info released - 08/02 - Draft starts - 08/15 - Free Agency starts - 09/08 - Free Agency ends - 09/09 - Switch to DDSPB2018 / Recruiting new GM's - 09/10 - Training camp - 09/12 - 1996/97 season starts
We could also start recruiting new GM's now, but I think it's better to wait until we're using the new version of the game, just to avoid someone joining and being a month without nothing to do to leave the league.
