Free Agency
« on: July 12, 2015, 05:56:39 PM »
Theory: We all get $40 extra for the entire season, plus whatever we did bid for the players who then left the EPL. As agreed before the draft, we'll give Billy (Leicester) the $23 extra his team "saved" during the automated draft, so that he can snatch some bigger names and get more competitive that way. I've done that already.

Practice: Not quite sure just yet. There should be free agent bids appearing somewhere on the Fantrax page, because we must be able to see them and overbid. More on this when I find out myself. They will be processed each FRIDAY at 2pm ET, I think.

PS
This is also the place to post your current players who left the EPL IRL. I will then proceed to remove them and add whatever you paid during the draft to your Free Agency budget.

I think I got it now.
You go to Players, then try to claim one while typing in the amount of your bid.
I have now bid $5 on Schweinsteiger, can somebody overbid so that we learn how it works?

Hmmm, a bit tough from here, shtoopid Fantrax won't let me switch off the Commish Mode.
I have now removed my bid on Schweini. Are you able to start the bidding yourself somehow?

OK, had to change one setting, but now it's officially working! Anybody can go to Players and press on that green plus sign to make a claim, while conditionally dropping another player if your claim is successful.

In Transactions => Pending Transaction you can find the high bids. I'm leading on Schweini already :disco:

(Btw if you guys feel like it, I could change the settings so that not only the amount, but also the team making the claim is visible.)

Yes, when you click on that green plus sign next to Schweini's name and you're on that screen where you select your bid's value, you also simultaneously select a guy from your team you WOULD drop WHEN your claim is successful. (We are still bound by the max team size of 20.) Otherwise, nothing will happen, and hopefully your employee will never find out he came very close to unemployment :rofl:

Nice to see both Schweini and Firmino open already!

Meanwhile, :Swansea: officially lose RVP and get $10 back :agent:

OK I put 6 on Schweinsteiger and it seemed to work. I don't see Firmino coming up tho. Did you know RVP was leaving or was that a cagey strategy to get more FA funds?  :thumbsup:

Go to Transactions => Pending Transactions, you click on the player's name and place a bid from there:

  • Vik: On second though almost no point for BOD unless it's just top 4 teams or something as of the freeze but probably best we just enjoy ball/hockey in real life assuming they finish it off

  • Colby: I have a big project closing out tomorrow. I've had two leagues in the making for the past few months. One is a futuristic baseball league with MLB on an international scale. The second is a salary cap league where you start anyone you want but your cap can vary based on franchise performance and market incentives. DM me if interested.

  • Colby: Also, I am looking for someone to get the Invitationals ready again. It may have to wait until 2021 due to COVID but that gives us time for planning and we can assess the top people to be invited.
