Free Agency Rule Changes

Free agency as we all know is a shambles. So we’ve came up with some new rules to try and get rid of the sniping and to give everyone a fairer chance. First things First

All owners are required to send screenshots of bids to a member of the FA team.

RULES

1. If there is an existing bid on a player, you can bid up to the same number of points of leading bid. If you wish to increase the bid, it must be a minimum of a 10 point increase.  For example, Team A has a bid on Player Z for 50 points. You can place a bid on the same player for up to 50 points. If you would like to increase the bid on Player Z, you’re point total would have to be a minimum of 60 points.

All owners are required to send screenshots of bids to a member of the FA team.

2. Once you remove a bid from a free agent you are no longer allowed to bid on that player for that round.  Anyone found to be intentionally (excessively) running up bids to just to drop out will be penalized. This comes under the rule of Don’t be a dick.

3. You are not allowed to lower a bid once it has been submitted. For example, if Team A and Team B are in a bidding war and Team A reached 75 points, then Team B drops, Team A must remain at 75 points. You can’t reduce your bid simply because the other stopped bidding on the player.

4. In the event a Free Agent is signed and a final bid screenshot is not available, the team
will have to release the player(s) signed and will have to deal with the cap penalty. If the cap penalty is so excessive that the team is unable to get to the required 53 players, cap penalty will be cleared. If this done, that team will then forfeit their 2nd round draft pick in the upcoming draft, and will have trade rights revoked until the following seasons draft is complete.

5. Once you bid 100 points or MORE, you are locked in on that bid until the player signs a contract. You are NOT allowed to remove yourself from the bid regardless of where you are on the points leader list.

6. In FA bidding, the final hours before advance is no longer sniping time. If advance is 10pm max bids are locked. Between 9-10 you are only allowed to match the highest current bid
