NFL Style Game World
Hi. I am looking to create a new game world. It will be based off of american sports, taking on rules from the MLS and NFL. I am looking for people interested in a fresh challenge. Here is the idea of the game world.
No buying players from External (apart from 2 special scenarios, see below)
No cash only deals between teams, must include at least a player or draft pick) No selling players for cash
[*]Only allowed 8 foreign players in your squad
[*]Playoff and Superbowl game at the end of the season
[*]Draft at the end of the season.
If this seems like something you would be interested please continue reading for a for in-depth explanation of the rules.
Manager cannot buy players from external clubs like they could in other game worlds. There are two ways in which you can gain players from external clubs in this setup.
Firstly, at the start of every season each manage is allowed to sign 2 players from external clubs (3 players for the first season). These transfers must be cash only deals, and the players must be 24 years old or older. The transfers can not include players leaving the club.
The second reason is signing players through the end of season draft, which will be explained later on.
No cash deals between human managers
You cannot make cash only transfers between other managers in this setup. If you want a player you must exchange another player in return, or exchange a draft pick (explained later). Cash can only be sued to reach chairman's evaluations.
No selling players for cash
Team cannot sell players for cash only, ie.e to external teams. If you want/ need to get rid of a player he must be traded away or released.
Only 8 foreign players
Each manager will pick a club to manage before i create the game world, for example Barcelona
That team can then have no more than 8 foreign players in their squad come the start of the season. Therefore, if i managed Barcelona i could not have more than 8 non-spanish players. Teams will be deducted points if they have eligible players.
A salary cap will be established which every player must adhere to come the start of every season. Teams that exceed the cap will be deducted points. All player salaries in the squad will be included in the cap, however, there are three players that can be exempt.
Each manage can choose an international player (foreign player), home-grown player and rookie player (23 years old or under) to be exempt from the salary cap. 0% of their wages will go towards the cap. These players can only be changed at the start of the season.
Playoffs and Superbowl
At the end of the season the top four teams will reach the play-offs. 1st plays 4th and 2nd plays 3rd. Winners of those games will reach the superbowl, and will play for the glory of winning that season.
At the end of every season a draft will occur. This is an opportunity for teams to sign rookies (23 years old or younger) from external teams. Managers take it in turn to pick a player. They then have the right to sign that player. A draft will consist of 4 rounds.
The team that finished bottom of the league receives the 1st overall pick each round, with the superbowl winner receiving the last pick each round.
Throughout the season manages can trade away their picks in the draft for players currently in teams squads.
Each season a draft 'class' will be selected. This decides which players are eligible to be drafted. For example, season 1 will be all players currently at English external teams.
So there you go. Those are the ideas for the game world. Please provide comments with feedback on the idea, and please let me know if you are interested in playing. If you have any questions regarding teh rulesd, or need somthing explaining more let me know. I am looking for trustworthy people who will follow the rules and are up for a bit of fun that is different from normal soccer manager!
