To keep all the info in one place as well as to allow non-managers to see how it works, here are the details of the upcoming team selection process etc. Keep in mind that this is all very new so there will probably be some teething issues here and there and we'll roll with the punches. I encourage managers and players to ask questions about the process! Summary * Before Thursday, the managers have to pick a team they'll be using for the upcoming season. * There are three blind bidding windows, where managers bid on a selection of players. The winner is whoever bids the most for that player. * After those three, anyone who has not found a team goes into a 48 hour open auction. * If there are still players without a team at that point, they'll be assigned by me.

National teams 20 June 2014 http://sofifa.com/teams?v=14&e=157669&tp=national Managers need to pick a team and post in this thread before 8pm on Thursday. Before the first competitive match, managers have to ensure all players have transformed their pro into one of the chosen team's players. That means their pro: * has the same height * has the same weight * has the same position * has the same text and commentary name * has the same shirt name * has been altered to resemble the RL player they are to represent Players must stick with that pro for the entire season. They can be played in other areas, but must retain the above attributes. (eg a RB can be played at RM, but he will still be a RB!) Timeline Thursday 1st by 8pm - Managers have posted their chosen team in this thread. 9pm - List A is posted Friday 2nd 8pm - List A window is closed and results are announced 9pm - List B is posted Saturday 3rd 8pm - List B window is closed and results are announced 9pm - List C is posted Sunday 4th 8pm - List C window is closed and results are announced 9pm - Auction thread is opened Tuesday 6th 9pm - Auction ends * times are approximate How the blind bidding works At the time stated on the timeline, a post will be added to this thread which will list the players available for bidding in the opening window. These players will be displayed with a minimum bid amount. The lists are balanced between value and last team so, for example, not all of the most expensive players will be in one window and nor will all of Rovers players. Managers then have until the window closes to submit a PM to me with the amount they wish to bid for individual players on that list. They can alter their bids all the way up until the closure. Once closed, I'll collate the bids and announce in this thread who had the highest bids for each player. Anyone who isn't subject to a valid bid will be placed in the auction, which follows the three windows. There are some rules to be aware of when making a bid: * You can only have a max of 10 players in your club (including yourself). * You can bid on more players than you can actually sign due to that player limit. Once you reach your limit, all your remaining bids will be ignored. * You cannot bid using money you don't have. You are responsible for ensuring this. If you do bid and win, but can't pay, you'll be starting the season with a points deduction. The Inside Man A new feature is available to managers... Once during the entire transfer period (and only once!), a manager can utilise their contacts at the FA to find out if one of their bids is the current highest for a player or not. So if you have that player you really want and can't bare the wait to see if you get them, you can pull some strings and find out. Best used late on in a transfer window (but not too late, you still need to rely on the FA being manned!), just send a PM to your contact in the FA (ie me) and ask: "Am I the highest bidder for [player name]?" The answer you get will be a single word, "Yes" or "No". How the auction works [tba]
