    Well no one got Bayern, but a lot of their players could get snatched up in the auctions. We can only tell after the auctions how strong they will remain.

    Alright now that the league's been chosen and the teams allocated, this is how we will move forward:

    The auction rounds start coming Sunday 19th November. We'll have 10 auction rounds before the season in the coming two weeks. The schedule will be:

    Auction 1: Sunday 19th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 2: Monday 20th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 3: Tuesday 21st Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 4: Wednesday 22nd Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 5: Thursday 23rd Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 6: Sunday 26th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 7: Monday 27th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 8: Tuesday 28th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 9: Wednesday 29th Nov - 21:00 GMT
    Auction 10: Thursday 30th Nov - 21:00 GMT

    So make notes, set alarms, put it in the agenda because this is what you guys are looking forward to the most I believe!

    After that I will prepare the teams and post a preview save game on Sunday 3rd December for you to check if everything's in order.

    When everyone has confirmed their squads we will start and I'll post when the squads will have to be submitted.


    I'm really looking forward to this and I hope we can make this a succes!

    I have a question about the upcoming auctions regarding the starting budget. I've now set it to 50 M and you need to buy at least 18 players with that. Do you guys feel that 50 M is enough or do you want a bigger starting funds?

    I.m.o. it doesn't really matter what the starting funds is. The lower it is, the lower the value of the players will become.

    It's just a mental thing really

    The question is, a top player (but not Messi/CR), how much would they go for - not 50/18 but if you lob 10m or more on him then you need to do some propoer wheeling dealing to fill the other 18 places but IIRC then you free dibs on players at end anyway (with those with cash that need players prioritirsed)

    I'm assuming that we can bid in decimals, so I don't think it really makes a difference how much we can bid as the more we have will just drive the prices up.

    50m is actually a lot, I gave everyone 20m to start off with in the DTL

    I want to add something to the auction proces.

    As you all know you need to get at least 18 players out of 10 auctions in your squad to start the season. Should someone in case of bad luck not have 18 players after auction number 10, we will have a final auction which consists of all the players that haven't been chosen in the 10 auctions.

    All the managers that have less than 18 players are allowed to make as many bids as needed to get to the 18 player cap. But in this final auction you will need to bid the value of the player as a minimum bid. This is to avoid that managers 'sit out' the auctions and snap all the players for free in the final auction.

    The managers that have at least 18 players will also be allowed to bid in this auction, but on a maximum of 2 players and for their minimum values as well.

    We will repeat this final auction until everyone has at least 18 players.

    Hopefully everyone will assemble a squad in the 10 auctions and there will be no need for this!

    If anyone is wondering: haggling will be allowed after the final auction, but with the 18 player cap in mind.

    There will be a couple of days between the final auction and readying the save game, so that will be the time to haggle!

    As things are now we have two tied bids already. Since I'm posting up the results in the evening and not everyone is on in the evening, this can delay the auction proces quite a lot.

    So we can do two things:

    1. I post the results, the tied bids, PM the managers that are tied and we wait until they've rebid before I post the new auction listings (like Mark does in DTL). This will slow down the auction proces since not everyone gets online in the evening.

    2. I post the results, the tied bids, PM the managers that are tied and after that I post the new auction listings. The managers that are tied will need to submit a rebid before they can bid for the next auction and can't withdraw from bidding (once committed, you stay committed).

    I'm interest to hear how you guys think about this.

    1. It's just the way it is. You don't want to give people an insight into the next auction as they should be thinking about this auction.
