P.S. the next 3 games will tell you where you stack up in II.4 I would put you in the top 6 teams as II.4 is a very tough division where the top 10 teams can beat each other on any given day.
Kids?! My team is nearly as old as yours! Except for a few prospects.

I have 40 mil laying around. I'm thinking about making a few upgrades to my offense (my wingers are terrible).

Yes, I'm sure life is tough for you and your max facilities and max stadium and-

WAIT. The Teslas aren't your hockey team, they're your handball team. That makes sense. I was talking about hockey, though. Although I do have 38 mil in handball... Hmm...

I also have 40M in the Handball's bank and will have near 70M in less than a week when we get the season bonus. Wait until tuesday and 80M+

I will have 3 options
--------------------------------
1. Buy a top goalie
2. Invest on facilities
3. Buy a new full triple level section

With this new rule of having to play normal to avoid penalties I am not thinking on upgrading the stadium

I have 2 goalies with very good qualities but low OR. will probably just ride with them for a while

so i will probably just improve my facilities.

Ok, I need someone to explain something to me. How are people able to bid $0 for a FA and win him? Here's an example. Naturally the team with the FA is likely not paying attention, but whenever I've tried (because I've seen it before) the game tells me the minimum bid is $10,000.

That is a transfer out. As he was a UFA there was no compensation hence $0. Go to the buying team's page and you can see they paid $1.5M.

Ah ha! That's what I was missing! Clearly I've had limited exposure to FAs. Thanks for pointing that out.

60s max time per pick.

So for handball, if EVERYONE was online, took max time, and had 3 draft picks (the max in handball) the draft would take 42 minutes (14 teams x 3 rounds x 1m per pick). I could see handball being around 15 min on average.

Hockey there are more teams and more picks. It'll have the longest draft at a maximum of 100min and a 120 player pool.

i think i chose the best time to sell my veterans and start playing my lower otr youngsters. I knew i was going to fall out playoffs but at least i will be able to have better chance to draft a good prospect to add to the mix of starting talents.

it will also me harder to promote now as it may be finally interesting/better to stay at the lower positions of the league then relegate to be on the top.

Id much rather draft 2 top prospects than any promotion bonus. not to mention other bad things that happens when one relegate.

So, think I should mark this as suspicious when the sale finalizes?

Last game is on Sunday. You'll have them sometime around Sunday night calculations I believe.

I have to dump 46M into TF12 some time before the season ends, 20M short due to the 2 players I purchased. I deviated from the plan I set out at the beginning of the season. Once that one is done I am going to start on the triples to get a good base going for when salaries get too expensive in season 7+.

Hopefully SA11 finally gives me a player above 250OR with 2stars First 4 players have been horrible.

Football :

Here are the season goals

OG's goals this season is as follows
1. Begin building 2 TF12's Which will leave 2 more then finished (( 1st one is started ))
2. Upgrade LM, RM, RD, CDL and CFR by 100 to 200 OR per player on the UFA market. (( LM, RM,RD,CDL finished , CFR is about to start ))
3. Finish 5-8th in league standings and the same in League Cup. (( currently sitting in 4th place. ))
4. Facilities : MC11, EC4-5 (( EC4-5 finished Switched gears and built SA 6 , SA 7. MC 11 is after I pick up a CFR and start the next Triple ))

All in all a very good start for OG in II.4 14 days and I will have 47K in attendance and will be well on my way to another 81M by seasons end for the next Triple, leaving only 2 stands to be finished.

I have an unrestricted free agent on the market that I will not be re-signing. He's a 1000 OR winger (hockey) with 180+ experience. Today is the last day to bid on him, and I doubt he'll cost that much. So if anybody wants to submit a bid on him, feel free: Tobias Berger.

EDIT: I was 106 fans away from selling out my hockey stadium today. So close!

Handball I.1 - I'll finish either 2nd or 3rd. Fighting Mojo today and the winner will very likely take 2nd. I pretty much committed to finishing the regular season as high as possible, forgoing any expectations in the playoffs or getting a training camp in earlier.

Congrats you two! RCR are sitting 2nd with 22 points through 9 games. What is alarming is my PP went 0/9 today and is 2/37 (5.4%) on the season, good for last in I.1 - even worst than inactives!
