M13 - Season 2 Offseason Schedule

Post by brza37 on Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:13 pm

Season 1 is coming to an end. There are only 4 teams left alive so its time to look forward to season 2 and the offseason. Below is the planned schedule which will begin a day after the Super Bowl is played. At this rate it seems we should be done with the Super Bowl by Friday and able to begin the offseason by Saturday the 24th.

We will try to plan the draft for a date and time when as many people as possible can be there so I will post some suggestions tomorrow and let everyone vote on the date.

So heres the general plan.

Offseason Schedule:
The offseason is broken up into 9 stages. We will advance one stage per day.

Free Agent Bidding is no longer like Ebay with a countdown timer. It is more of a silent auction type of thing. FA Bidding happens over 5 stages where you can bid on players you want. When a stage is advanced some players will decide to sign while others will wait for a better offer before deciding.

Throughout the offseason you still have access to progression and roster. For whatever reason there is no list of retirements but you can check your roster and see who is not there anymore or if he was a top player he should be listed in the Hall of Fame after the season if he retired.

Below are the stages and description of what tasks you have for each stage.

Stage 1: Ends Wednesday at 9pm
Player Resigning - last chance to resign your players with expired contracts before they hit free agency. You cannot renogiate with players who rejected your contract. But you can franchise tag one player though.
Also as stated when we began the league, DO NOT resign players that still have years remaining on their contracts as this can cause a bug which will ruin your salary cap.

Stage 2: Ends Thursday at 9pm
Free Agent Bidding
Trade Players Enabled

Stage 3:
Nothing (for whatever reason this stage gets skipped automatically)

Stage 4: Ends Friday at 9pm
Free Agent Bidding
Scouting

Stage 5:
Nothing (for whatever reason this stage gets skipped automatically)

Stage 6: Ends Saturday at 9pm
Free Agent Bidding
Scouting

Stage 7: Ends Sunday 12noon
Scouting - Spend all remaining Scouting Points by the end of this week because SP won't carry over after this point.

Stage 8: Starts Sunday 1pm
Free Agency Recap
Draft

Stage 9: Immediately after Draft (around 3pm Sunday)
Drafted Rookie Signings - This happens automatically. Just an info screen showing you their contracts, ratings and your cap room.
You should also now set your depth chart

Preseason Week 1: Starts Monday 8pm Ends Tuesday 9pm
Free Agency - all players including undrafted free agents are free to sign on a first come first serve basis.
Practice
Preseason Game

I will edit in the exact dates and deadlines in this post once they get solidified.
Also since we need as many people as possible to be online for the draft I added a poll for which times and dates you can draft. The draft is on PS3 this year.

In the poll mark all the times that you could be online for the draft so that I can schedule a time that works for the most people. The draft will take about 1 to 2 hours.

Since Thursday-Friday won't be possible for the draft anymore I've reset the poll with new options. Please vote again in the new poll and let me know when you have voted.

If you guys are still unsure of what to expect here's a good video that walks through the offseason:

i think rookie signings is when you can also sign UDFA? Not sure if they're available to sign in pre season

Ok, thanks for the info. I'll add that to the schedule.

I also added a poll for the draft date up top. Mark all the times that you could be online for the draft so that I can schedule a time that works for most people. The draft will be done on PS3 this year.

TBH i think you should cap teams to 2UDFA untill every1 has had a day or 2 to sign UDFA, As not every1 can get online every day. Also IMO anyway players cut by CPU teams in pre-season shouldn't be free 4 all FA .

i think the league advances autoamtically after the draft so everyone has the same chance to sign UDFAs and FAs as each other, just like in real life.

It'd be nice if there was another week of FA with the bids but there isn't and this is the most realistic and sim way of doing it without another delay by doing an FA draft IMO.

Just think we'll just wanna get the season started.

Also, will we do one day advances for pre season?

I would like to limit Udfa signings so everyone has a fair chance but since we only have time right after the draft to do it then there's no way to effectively limit it without holding up the league. Just need to get everyone online at the same time for the draft. Everyone will have a fair shot atdrafting the players anyway so the leftover udfa shouldn't be that great anyway.

Since there's no transaction list for CPU teams it will also be really difficult to determine which FAs were cut by CPU teams unless they are big name guys which probably won't happen anyway. So I don't see an effective way we can police it.

The preseason will be advanced once per day & the games are optional. If you can't come to an agreement with your oppnt about a game time or one of you just doesn't want to play the game will just be simmed. No one will be put forced on autopilot in preseason because that can lead to strange cuts from CPU.

I'm not sure what you mean? The schedule is posted already. FA bidding is available in Stage 2. UDFA is available in Stage 9 after the draft. And first come first serve FA signings are available in the preseason.

I think a Thursday Draft won't be possible anymore. I assumed that we would be finished with the Super Bowl by Saturday. The earliest we can do now without skipping a stage of the offseason schedule would be Friday.

Just my 10 penneth worth - as the SB may not be done till Monday night - I would suggest doing the draft next Monday evening as the weekends can get pretty busy at this time of year?

I see Monday night got 8 votes also - and that would give Brza enough time to do the off-season without having to fly through it. For example, if someone misses FA (and theres always someone) due to a small window that can have quite an effect.

We have no US HC's so i reckon Monday next fits the bill.

Who else voted? Could do with a list so Brza knows how many HC cast a vote.

I'll start:

Bears voted

Yeah, I agree. I'm waiting till the Superbowl actually gets scheduled though before creating a new poll. No use in making a new one now that may also be obsolete if the SB doesn't get played today.

The SB is being played right now guys. Inf, messaged me on PSN that they're playing and they're both still in game. That means we could have the draft as soon as Saturday. It seems Monday night got the most votes though. But 5 guys haven't voted at all yet.

Also I just simmed through a test season and found out the following:
- In Stage 1 you cannot renogiate with players who rejected your contract. You can franchise tag one player though.
- In offseason Free Agency Bidding you can't see players ratings so you'll have to check the maddendaddy site for that.
- In Stage 9 after the draft you can't sign undrafted rookie free agents. Its just an info screen showing your drafted players and their automatic contracts. You can sign UDFAs during the preseason though. All the UDFAs I saw were rated 68 or lower so it shouldn't be a problem going on first come first serve basis.

I'll update the schedule with this info.
