Hey all -

Stick chugging away at this thing. Still have a lot of backwork to finish up, but I'll try and do things as we go along. Like not every player needs a picbase until you talk to them, etc... until I have the time to make picbases for every player.

The draft will be the first thing we will go through. Followed by free agency/staff hiring. I am still working on the team sheets so you can plan for the draft and the future. Hopefully I can crack some out over this weekend (currently only have 1 done... yikes!).

So in the meantime I have a (what I think is) fun assignment. This is completely optional and is in no way required. It will not have any bearing on your GM success.

You will have the option to edit your home ballpark. You can choose the wall dimensions, the type of playing surface. I will make a thread with much more detail. Stay tuned!

I will begin to post each teams active roster and S5 stats. You will not have any grades until you lock-in for the preseason and receive your team sheet. Although I may leave grades off completely, I haven't fully decided yet. 

You will have to go off the stats to make any changes you see fit.

Each team will be able to have 12 scouting reports. You cannot purchase more. You can send these to me at any time.

Most teams have a complete coaching staff, but some teams will need to hire staff. However, I will allow the opportunity of each team to fire any staff member (if they see fit) for no cost to the team. Keep in mind though, that could have an impact on team morale.

As always, hit me up on Discord or PM me if you have any questions.

Next step is I’ll slowly start rolling out team sheets before coaching hires and free agency. After team sheets I will post a list of available coaches and a list of available free agents. Since Talon is a great innovator, I am thinking of doing the same “hours” approach to free agency.

I will have grades for all the free agent players, but there will never be grades for coaches.

All post draft team sheets have been released!

Next up is sort of a "mini offseason".

In this period you can terminate ANY player contract that you choose and will not have to pay any money towards. Keep in mind though, it can impact morale, the agent relationship, etc.

You can also terminate any coach contract without any money penalty. Once again, this can effect things like morale as well.

Each team will be given $15MM scouting money to use on the following:

$1MM - For each Free Agent scouting report.
$1MM - For each scouting report from a player on another team.
$500K - For each scouting report from a player on your team.

You can also interview coaches for jobs. If you decide to steal another coach from another team, it has to be a move up. PC/HC can be interviewed for Manager positions. SD can be interviewed for Manager/PC/HC.

You may begin scouting now if you wish. I will begin to assemble a free agent player and coaches list soon.

As of right now, I’m going to put a deadline for offseason lock-in for January 7th, end of day.

If you don’t think you can make this deadline, please PM me on the boards or in Discord.

Alright for preseason lock in.

You will have all roster members available (yes, that includes reserve roster) to be used.

You can break it down as specific as you’d like in terms of batting order, who is the starting pitcher, etc... or you can be as vague as leaving it up to managers.

You’d just have to post how you’d like each game to go in your lock in.

For those that were penalized for being over reserve cap, you need to correct yourself before you lock in for preseason.

When threads unlock, you’ll address the press on an open press conference. You may or may not get any follow up questions.

About spring training.

It wouldn’t let me sub in depth as manager switched it back to starting lineup. So as of now, looks like only starters can be manipulated. But I haven’t tried that yet so not 100% there either.

Thanks for being patient as we treat this season sort of like a BETA run.

Starting this week (Week 5 lock in), you MUST post your 3 game lineups.

If you want you can opt for managers decision.

Reason being is injuries have caused lineups to adjust and they don't adjust back unless I do so manually. So I can't say for certain if a manager is automatically going to play a guy recovered from injury or if the sub stays in. So choose "managers decision" at your own discretion.     

ALSO

If you read so on Discord or in the League Rules thread, salary CAN be retained in a trade.

That is all!

STARTING WEEK 5 LOCK IN

You must post your lineups for lock-in.

You can have 3 different ones for the 3 game series, you have one for all three. That is up to you.

You can also just say managers decision, but if you do this, it doesn't mean he will make the changes discussed in the team thread. The sim literally will have the manager do the lineup how he wants it.

The reason for this is because of injuries to players makes the manager do weird things and resets the lineups and it's easier for me to update it on your lock-in then to try and find your last lock-in with changes.
