New bidding rules Dec 7th 2015

We would like to announce that a few adjustments have been made to the bidding process. We strive to make Franchise Ball a game of growth and sustainability for all teams, especially expansion clubs, and the new rules in place should create a more balanced environment to this effect.

1 : The bid protection duration has been raised from 30 days to 90 (3 seasons). This will give expansion teams more time to hold their talent, while money is accumulated through attendance and rewards.

2 : The bid protection limit has been reduced from 600k to 500k. This will guarantee that new teams can hold onto talent players (FTV 9 or higher), without need to promote these players early on.

3 : And finally, we have established a deadline for when top bids can be removed, the 15th of each month. So from the 16th, until when bid players rewarded (the day after the world series), the top bidder on any player will be forced to keep their bid intact, until they are not the top bid anymore. This will promote bid integrity as bidding heats up toward the end of the season.

Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions, and good luck to all in season 32!
