EHM early access vs EHM2007?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Can a developer or someone tell me if there is any official posting about what is currently different in EA version over old 2007.

Here are a few things I noticed that are different (someone can tell me if it’s true):

I noticed the game is faster (at least I think it is) I played EHM2007 a few months ago on the same computer and I swear its faster siming, and saving is faster as well.

The young players (draft eligible) and other minor league player’s stats have been reduced as to what it used to be in EHM2007 of draft players.

Anything else?

Thanks for the reply, I didn’t see a response to the speed of the game, unless I misread.

So the game is faster, in terms of simulating between matches, right compared to EHM2007? I am not just thinking that? If it is I think that’s a big thing you should add on the very front on the Steam store page, it’s certainly a big thing for me, faster simulation makes the game more enjoyable.
