There will be a few important changes regarding releasing, trading and signing up free agents, all changes are there to make this more comfortable for GMs to manage their teams as well as making the draft experience more enjoyable for players, so here it goes
a) Any GM can release any player at any given time, there is no need for an excuse to release anymore. After being released, player will be placed to FA pool. - this is a major change here, no players will be excluded from league anymore, even if they go inactive
b) After being released, player will have a 24 hour cool-down period, after that a topic on forum or (if sören finalizes it) website feature will be opened up for the auction for that player. The auction has no deadlines, rules are simple, a bid on player is valid for 24 hours, if noone bids higher during that period, player will be signed to that team. If someone overbids it, another 24 hour waiting period will commence. If noone bids on player, his topic will remain open for week. If player has had no bids for entire week, his lowest vp bid will be changed. So lets say a vet has been up for bidding for a week with min bid of 5 vp, after that week, a new auction will be opened with 4vp as minimum bid. Bidding rules are the same, new players bidding is from 1 to 5vp, vets from 6-9vp.
c) If a player is released from team, his old GM cannot bid or trade for him anymore, so that player is not allowed back on the same team again. This rule is enforced to avoid GMs trying to make their players "cheaper", for example releasing bunch of 6vp players in hope of getting them back as 5vps.
d) if a new FA signs up, all the GMs will be alerted of that. It will look more or less following: FREE AGENT XXX will become available on auction in 24 hours. In that way GMs can plan being online when important free agents are setup for bids. If a new player is bid 5vp on or vet player 9vp, there will be no 24 hour waiting period, but player will be signed to that team immediately.
e) Bidding will be halted for the period of scheduled games, no bids will become final during that period. So for example if someone bids x vp on player at saturday 2pm, but lockdown begins at 10pm, countdown will commense after schedueld games are over.
I will make changes to rules in near future, feel free to comment or ask questions
