Surprise OOTP 14 Features!

Every year we like to surprise you with some last-minute OOTP features, and this year is no different. Here's what we've added to the game during its final days of development:
  • Unlock plenty of performance-based Achievements! How many can you discover during your managerial career?
  • You can set a player to a "Not Interested" Trade Status, preventing the AI to offer this player to you again.
  • A Free Agent Draft can now be scheduled from the League Setup functions screen. It's similar to the inaugural draft, but it doesn't clear the team rosters and it assigns picked players adequate 1-year contracts. Such a draft is useful if, for example, you want to have contraction and draft the players released from the contracted teams. Or if you import several historical players into the FA pool and want the teams to draft them.
  • The new optional Font Size Setting allows you to adjust the interface to your liking.
