v2.9.0 - Release notes

Introducing manageable national teams, assistant lineup suggestion plus several other improvements.

New features

Managing national teams

You can now apply to manage a national team. If you're not participating in the playoffs, you have the option to submit your application to manage a team in the upcoming World Hockey Championship. The actual team assignments will be determined through a lottery, and managers with a higher reputation will have an increased chance of selection if there are more applications than available positions. See help files for more info.
