Habs76' Auction GM Game - Discussion Thread

PLEASE READ ENTIRE OP BEFORE POSTING



First and foremost, this will not start until Monday no matter what so don't ask me to change the date.*I am only putting this up now to allow time for people to join, and because I will be pretty busy thThe first version of this*game*went really well until the last couple of days where I admittedly really screwed up by pushing back the last day a couple of times. That won't happen this time. The Division Commishes will most likely be Dabeast, myself, XXXXXXXXX & XXXXXXXXX. So we need at least two more. PM me if you're interested, but just to warn you now, it's quite a bit of work and I will only be taking people I know can handle it. If I haven't seen you in one of these games before I will not accept you.

This is a*game*where you build your roster from scratch - you quite literally start out with nothing but a name and a fat load of cash.*Your task is to build the most competitive team in the league within 5 days and ultimately win the Stanley Cup. But instead of a boring old fantasy draft or starting out with a team and making moves accordingly, you actually get to bid on players. Sounds confusing? Don't worry, it'll all be explained in detail here:

How this is gonna work is that each day, each Division Commisioner will choose one of the teams in their division, and every player on that team will be put up for*auction.*The next day, they choose another team, and so on until all 6/4 teams in each division have been auctioned off.

The actual auctions are quite simple, really. You see a player on a team you like, you wait for the day his team goes up for*auction, and you send a PM to the Division Commissioner including your team name, the player you're bidding for, and the amount you're bidding*in the title.*For those of you that need an example, look no further than here:

Just like that.*Any bid titles that are not formatted like that will be ignored, and whining about this rule could result in possible loss of cap space, and even removal as GM.*This will be strictly enforced, so don't try and get around it. It's hard enough for us division commissioners as is, we don't need you to make it any harder by *****ing because you couldn't read the entire OP.

You do not need to include any reasoning in the PM, as it will be ignored. Also, NTCs, term length, and captaincy mean nothing in this*game. Money is all that matters.

The bidding will start at 10:59AM EST end at 8:59PM EST everyday, so you have no excuse to not get your bid in, even if you're going to be out for the night or have a hot date.*

The commissioners will update it at least once an hour, possibly more, with the most frequent updates falling from 7PM to 9PM EST. The winner of each player will be announced shortly after the bidding ends.

If you check and see that you do not have the highest bid but would like to beat it, you must offer at least .25M more than the current highest bid for it to be valid, even on a lower end player. So if, say, the highest bid on Zach Parise is 8M, you have to offer at least 8.25M, or else it will not count.*Bids also need to be made with a (.00, .25, .50, .75) on the end. Anything else will be rounded up. So for example, an offer of $4.01M will be rounded up to $4.25M

Please do not post in the Division threads, as they are for checking the highest bids and seeing if you got said players only. If you want to discuss the*game*or who got who, please use this thread only. This thread is for updates on the*game*and discussion, while the division threads are for keeping track of bids only. Any posts in the division threads will be ignored.

Division Commissioners will be able to bid on players from the teams they're the commish of. However, they can't bid on a player from that team in the last hour unless they have a bid before the last hour (so before 9:00).*They must also inform me before bidding again in the last hour.*I will inform another commish if I'm doing this. This will be kind of a trust system, but I've chosen commishes I trust for a reason.*

You are responsible for keeping up your own roster, and only you. I will put up a roster thread for this.* NHLNumbers, General Fanager & Hockeyscap are more than perfect for this, and it won't take more than half an hour to put up a finished roster. If you don't post a roster, you don't play. Simple as that.*

THERE WILL BE NO TRADING.*It's confusing enough sorting all of this out, and it'd only complicate things. If you want a player badly enough, you'll pay for him monetarily. That kind of defeats the purpose of this*game*anyways, since this is about how you manage your cap. Trading a player because you managed your money poorly would really not match the purpose of this*game.

Again, do not complain if you miss out on a player or get beat out by a last minute bid. You're the only one the blame, and there will be discipline if it gets out of hand. We do have something to prevent quite a bit of sniping and make the*game*even more fun though:

Extra Bidding*

The three best/most popular (determined by Commish) players from every team will have their own thread (so 6 threads) where you can bid for an extra half hour after 10PM EST. We feel this will make it more fair and also won't be hard on time.

Bid Amnesties

You will need to be careful with your bids, but almost everybody will make a mistake. Somebody will bid on two first line centers and win both, or two starting goalies, etc.*To compensate for this, each team will have two bid amnesties.*If you win a player you don't want for whatever reason, you can use a bid amnesty and the next highest bid will win that player instead. That next person can also an amnesty if they too don't want that player. If it comes to that, the third highest bidder wins the player. The winner can't be one of the two who already used an amnesty, to prevent multiple amnesties from being used on the same player.Amnesties also have to be used before the next day of bidding.


The cap will be $200M. If you do not meet the roster requirement of at least 13 forwards, 7 defensemen, and 2 goalies don't worry. There will be a free for all after the last day of this where you can sign anybody you want for any price you want. I wouldn't count on anything but scrubs being left for this though.*Also, don't be stupid with your bids.*If you want to spend 50 million on Crosby, go for it. If you spend something crazy like $100M I won't stop you because that ruins the freedom of this*game. I guarantee you will really hurt your chances of winning if you do this though.*Somebody did this last*game*on multiple players and ended up being disqualified for going over the cap. I'm sure they regretted it, please don't make me do that again.

If you still have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll gladly answer.

Thanks to Nyquist/LatvianTwist for allowing me to use this OP.

Just so you know, the OP you posted is for a silent auction. There are OPs for live auctions floating around here somewhere, if you're good with the Search tool.

Silent auctions might be a better idea than live auctions, though.

I know. I decided to do a silent auction instead of a real one.

Oh okay, sounds good. I do much prefer them and I think the end result is a lot better, it just requires more effort.
