Out of position penalty during gameplay

The penalty for players outside the special team was raised again, as part of the plan to force managers playing their guys in the right spot.

Experience costs money

Step one to raise the influence of the players experience to the salary was taken. We will continue in raising this influence step by step during the next 2 seasons.

Day trading

We raised the taxes on selling players. The tax calculation is now based on played official games for the selling team. Details can be found in the manual.

Getting rid of retiring players

Once a player announced his retirement, the manager cannot fire him or cancel his contract, once the season kicked off. This means, managers have to make their decision until the seasons first Saturday morning (midnight server time). If the player offers to not retire for money, and the manager has taken his chance to avoid the retiring of a player, he is technically no retiree anymore, and can be fired, sold etc.

Playing odd playbooks / Tanking

We enabled the checks for tanking, for playing odd offense playbooks. These checks were active long time now, but only for friendly games. We liked what we have seen, and therefore activated the stuff for all games.

Once a manager was found guilty for Tanking, his "tanking level" raises by one. There are several things to happen once this hits a certain level. You can find more information in the manual. The tanking warnlevel is shown on the teams homepage, and is visible for all. The manager should take warning very serious. The most harsh penalty a manager could face is the permanent loss of income from tickets for the whole season due to the fans not liking odd football on the field.

Out of position penalty during training

We enabled an out of position penalty for the training as well. So, if the number of players to have training in a certain position group hits a certain level, the training progress of each player of such a group will drop to almost nothing. One coach cannot take care for too many trainees. The limits per position group are very high at the moment, and subject of further changes. Once a manager hits those limits, the training report will contain notices.

Automatic contract prolongation to meet roster requirements

If a manager "failed" to negotiate contracts for players, the season rollover script was manager friendly in the past, and prolonged such contracts just to meet the roster requirements, the minimum of 38 players. Since some managers were abusing this heavily, we decided to stop with this kind of friendlyness. From the next rollover on such players won't receive new contracts, and will leave the team. We will fill the holes with worse players instead.
