Roster rules
  • If you do not re-sign a player, after their contract expires, it appears they move to the free agency
  • The game does NOT automatically re-sign players, so you MUST have a minimum of TEN players on your roster in order for me to start the first regular season game

Contract Extensions/Re-signings
  • To post contraction extensions and re-signings, create a thread in the Extensions and Re-signings subforum (https://www.simfba.com/index.php?forums/extensions-and-re-signings.105/
    • (Team Name) - Contract extensions/re-signings
      • E.g. Atlanta Hawks - Contract extensions/re-signings
    • Post the contract in the following format
      • Player name - position - contract length - contract amount - year by year breakdown

How to Post Free Agency Bids
  • Create a thread in the Free Agency forum (https://www.simfba.com/index.php?forums/free-agency.104/) titled:
    • (Year) - (Team Name) - Free Agency Offers (e.g. Atlanta Hawks - Free Agency Offers)
  • Post contracts in the same format listed in the Contract Extensions/Re-Signings section above
  • There will be a constantly updated spreadsheet of the highest offer provided to the player

Pitches
  • To help benefit your chances at signing a player, you may also write a free agency pitch that Subsequent and Believer will review and determine which team has the best pitch
  • Creativity highly encouraged

Free Agency Decisions
  • The player will “decide” which team to sign with through the following factors
    1. Best offer (longest contract)
    2. Free Agency Pitch
    3. Mood towards your team (green > white > yellow > red)
    4. Position need (number of other players in that position)
    5. High roll (1D20)
  • Free Agency offers that are left unchallenged for 48 HOURS will lead to an automatic signing of that player to the team
  • It is important that you keep checking other team’s free agency documents/free agency spreadsheet
  • If a free agent bidding war lasts for 7 DAYS then Subsequent and Believer will use the above checklist to determine the free agent signing.
  • Free agency results will be posted in the #Free-Agency-Results channel

Extensions
  • Contract extension mins. work the same way as the free agency mins.
  • If a player’s overall is:
    • 70+
      • Max Contract (Max. 4 years)
      • Max contracts will be based on the below breakdown table
    • 65-69
      • Min. + $20m
    • 60-64
      • Min. + $10m
    • 55-59
      • Min. + $5m
    • >55
      • League min.
