Brutus Posted July 31, 2018 Report Share Posted July 31, 2018 Summer League has come to a limping end, but as it was designed to exactly do, it floated us through the Summer, where not many of us are online to play at the same time. Figure about a month for the playoffs to finish in the Summer League, and the whole "Back to School" month of August to end as well, and we should be ready for a solid group of buds to join in a league. This will be a short league, running for ONE MONTH, then depending on league size, a quick playoffs. It will be a great test for the state of affairs for a bigger league to setup come October, but if you won't be around in September to play your games, don't sign up. Guys with high DNP's won't be invited to future leagues. Sign up in this forum with your best version of "IN!" below here. ROM RULES: Weight bug fixed Blitz style (check rating added into equation), shortened penalties, Classic style "Hot/Cold" ratings but with accurate displays in game, 5 minute periods, Icing On, Offsides Off, Regular Goalie Delay plus no Y button instant goalie. So, the ROM itself should play just like Classic, except it will have 45 second penalties and the weight bug will be fixed, so fat dudes will hit better and skinny dudes will be wimps, or for those around back in the day, play like the Blitz Rom except the ability to switch to goalies won't be faster. Now, for the fun part: ROSTER RULES/ DRAFT SETUP: There will NOT be a standard draft in this league. A roster pool of eligible players will be created from All Time rosters, including 1994 Classic rom and posted on a Google Doc. Each player in the pool will be given a salary based on his skill/ratings. Each team will have to fill their roster with players they pick from this pool & fit their total salaries under/up to their ASSIGNED Salary Cap. Each Team's Total Salary Cap's will be based on each Coach's overall talent/previous records &&& his own desired handicap. HOWEVER, it will NOT be designed to have lesser coaches with all superstars, and top coaches w/ garbage. SINCE IT IS SALARY CAPPED, each team will have to make choices on whether to spend their money on one great player, 2 good players, a solid team, spend money on elite goalie, or save some money for a solid bench. THE Higher your Salary Cap is, the more good players you will be able to fit on your team. This will make it very easy to allow top coaches to control what level of handicap they want to play with (including AJ!) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
