The Franchise Experience

Season 2 Off Season Plans

Congratulations to hitter and his Atlanta Braves for being the League Champions of Season 1!

Progressions have been run. Minor League teams have had progressions run based on their budget allocations. Major League teams have had progression based on Potential. Traded Draft Picks were programmed. Once the 3pm deadline has passed I will start calculating available budgets and get that posted.

Friday 29th May 3pm CST Rosters will be cleared. Get your players signed before then. Any players not signed will be lost to free agency. Message Commissioner if you need rookie contracts placed so you don't lose your rookies in the minors.

Friday 29th May 4pm CST The 3 Round Rookie Draft will commence. Teams will have 4 hours on the clock and we will slow draft through the draft. Time will pause at 10pm CST each night and resume at 8am CST the following morning. You are still free to make your pick after 10pm but nobody will be penalized by losing time off their 4 hours on the clock.

Friday 5th June 3pm CST Free Agency bidding will open. This will run over 2 rounds. Each round will be 24 hours.
Round 1: Has a minimum bid of $50 total contract value. Only bids that are at least $50 total contract value will be accepted. Winning bids will be awarded at the end of the 24 hour period for the round.
Round 2: Has a minimum bid of $10 total contract value. Only bids that are at least $10 total contract value will be accepted. Winning bids will be awarded at the end of the 24 hour period for the round.

If a team wants players worth less than $10 they can pick them up when free agency opens to fill out their rosters.
*************Warning*************If you sign a tagged rookie in free agency he will not be eligible for a rookie deal or double progression (if your team has paid for that feature)

Sunday 7th June 3pm CST Free Agency will be turned on and teams can fill out their rosters. First come first served, so be on at that time.

Eh, I disagree that fav teams should have trades turned off -- I've def flipped either Story or Tulo for a solid pitcher when I played with Rockies.

Obviously the lopsided trades suck, but they're the lesser of two evils
