PostSubject: 2014 (Season 4) Offseason Schedule   Tue Apr 10, 2012 7:05 pm

The Super Bowl is likely to be played by Thursday this week so I wanted to get the offseason schedule out there so everyone knows how to prepare.

After the Super Bowl I will need a few days to set up the draft and free agency. In order to set up the draft and free agency I will have to advance the league to Week 1 of the next year. It is important that no one plays a game on PS3 or does any roster moves on PS3 during the entire offseason. Doing that, even if its a mistake, will result in an immediate ban.

After the Super Bowl is played and I advance to the offseason you will be able to check which players have retired and also check the current ratings for your players.

Once i have that set up teams will be able to resign their own players who are in the last year of their contracts. I will give everyone 2-3 days to do this. All players that currently have only 1 year remaining on their contract that aren't resigned by the end of this period will be released from their teams to free agency. You must have a minimum of 35 players on your roster before free agency starts though so keep that in mind during the resigning period.

After the resigning period, the new league year will begin along with free agency bidding and trades. We will only have one free agency bidding period before the draft this season. The first free agency bidding period will last 2 days.

Following Free Agency we will have the live draft on XFN. The CPU for some reason still automatically drops players from your roster if you have more than 48 players so make sure you don't have more than that on your team before the draft or else the CPU will automatically drop someone.

If for some reason you cannot be there for the live draft you can still set your draft board on XFN and send me a copy if you want me to make your picks for you. If you don't send a list of players you want or the list is too short then you will just get the highest rated player available at the time (Ks and Ps excluded). You can also send the list or communicate your draft wants to someone else you trust. Just please let me know who that person is ahead of time.

I also suggest that everyone logs into the chat here so that if there are any problems you can notify me immediately so that I can pause the draft. If anyone wants to do a draft day trade the chat is probably the best way to try.

After the draft another free agent bidding period will start that lasts 1 day. After FA bidding closes everyone will have another 1-2 days at the latest to get their roster to the roster requirements of 50-55 players. If you get your roster done earlier and want to play then just PM me so I can ok your roster.

I will edit in the exact dates and deadlines in this post once they get solidified.
I think the tentative schedule will look like this though:

Administration Period for setting up the Offseason April 12 – 15.
New League Year Begins April 15th (Trades and Free Agency Bidding Allowed)
Resigning Period April 15 - 17
Free Agency Bidding Period 1 April 17-18
XFN Live Draft April 19 8pm GMT (21:00 CET)
Free Agency Period 2 April 19 – 20
Regular Season Kickoff April 20
Final Roster Restriction Date April 22
Advance to Week 2 April 24

If you have any questions or feedback go ahead and fire away.

Its just a tentative schedule so we can change the time or date a bit if its not good for everyone.

Also we should be advancing to the offseason by saturday night, I just have to clearsome things at XFN. Please don't make any roster changes or cuts until then.

Yes, you can now resign your players on XFN.

If you go to Front Office > Sign/Release the expiring players will be outlined in red. To re-sign the player just click on the green + button. You will see a drop down box to choose the years. When you select the amount of years you want a random offer will be filled in. The amount that is shown is somewhere in the ballpark of the player's asking price. It could be lower, higher, or the actual asking price. To make the offer just click submit. The player will immediately respond to the offer. If he accepts the banner will stay green, the box will close, and the red outline will disappear. If he has a problem with the offer the banner will become red and there will be a message letting you know they either want a larger salary, bonus, or both.

Salary Caps are also updated correctly now. You can also now cut players on XFN to make room for resignings and the draft. Remember that you must have at least 35 players on your roster once resigning is over to make free agency fair for everyone and ensure that no teams get gutted.

EDIT: WAIT I TAKE IT BACK. Please don't resign players yet. The League needs to be advanced to the offseason on Playstation as well before players can be resigned. LT will post here as soon as he advances to the offseason on PSN.

Its ok. It was my fault but there shouldn't be that big a difference between the contracts before and after progression.

Now everyone needs to make sure you have 48 players or fewer on your roster. If there are players that you don't want to resign whose contracts are expiring then I'd suggest cutting them first to get under the limit. If you don't get your rosters under 48 the CPU will randomly cut players for you.

You will not be able to resign players right now. We need to first get under 48 for each team. Once that happens we will advance to week 1 on PSN. After that we will have the resigning period on XFN. That will be followed by Free Agency on XFN and then the draft on XFN too.

So the faster we make our cuts to get to 48 players or less the faster we can get on with the offseason. We will move on by Monday at the latest.

by the way I imagine there is aquite a bit of work for you doing all this so thanks from me for all your efforts

No, we can't bid on FAs yet. That one bid is just a hold over from last season.Apparently someone must have bid right after I processed the bids but before I could close the bidding.

Again the process looks like this:
1. Cuts to 48 players (Advance tonight)
2. Resigning period (1-2 Days)
3. FA Bidding Period 1 (2 Days)
4. Draft (1-2 hours)
5. FA Bidding Period 2 Final Roster Restrictions of 50-55 players met (1 Day)
6. First Week of Games

You can now resign your own players. You will have until Thursday evening to do this. After that we will advance to free agency.

I will post the full schedule later tonight.
