OFF SEASON: Free Agency

Postby Eric - Archers GM » Mon Oct 19, 2020 1:10 pm

The league file has been updated with your new picks and we are ready to begin free agency. A few notes:

Free agency rounds will run like coach rounds. There will be two per day unless I change that schedule (which I will announce if I do).

Free agency round 1 will be held 10/20 in the morning at roughly 10 AM eastern time.
Free agency round 2 will be held 10/20 in the evening and the pattern will repeat until free agency is done.

There are 30 days in free agency.
I will sim 1 game day per round.
I will sim to the end if there are no more GM orders received.
GMs do not need to submit orders on offered FA every round if your offer hasn't been rejected.
Your offer will be rejected if you don't see an offer for them when you sync your league file (look at your current offers in the FBB3 application).
Please be diligent in syncing your league file after every sim so that your list of FA is updated as we proceed.

In addition, there were a few pre-draft trades submitted that I didn't process on draft day (due to fatigue) that need announcing:

Blaze Trade PF Noe Davis to the Sharks
Sharks Trade 2029 SeaDogs 1st Round draft pick to the Blaze

Tritons Trade C Erik Langlois to the Demons
Demons Trade 2031 Demons 1st Round draft pick to the Tritons

SeaDogs Trade 2029 SeaDogs 1st Round draft pick to the Sharks
SeaDogs Trade SF Long Foote to the Sharks
Sharks Trade SF James Nichol to the SeaDogs

HTML is updated. Please update your league file so that you are in sync.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

We are going to have to regress. Consider Round 6 undone.

TL/DR something in one of the files makes it so that when I import them, it doesn't take the orders of multiple GMs. Several GMs uploaded orders. I confirmed their import file. They imported (c.f. the date on the GM screen is today) so I know they imported into the application.

My best guess is that maybe somebody submitted orders that were out of sync (maybe an offer on a guy who wasn't there and BOOM?). Maybe it was a glitch in the matrix.
Whatever the issue, I don't have the patience nor the time (you know, that other job... my life) to go through files one by one to ensure they imported. The app takes then and, in turn, contact the GM to see if who they offered on is in there.

So here's what we're going to do... we're going to have another submission of orders for Round 6.

This time...

  • PLEASE be sure you generate orders ONLY from an updated league file.
  • Check that you are showing the right FA day... it should be 6 of 30 (see screenshot).
  • Submit your round 6 orders for the run tonight as per usual.
  • I'll have a few GMs check in so I can spot check the run.
We'll go from there.

The process has worked for 5 rounds prior so the application does not seem to be the issue so I'm hopeful that if GMs are diligent in sending orders ONLY after they have synced the league file, we won't have this problem. Hopefully, we can move forward after a successful round 6 run tonight.
