New Fictional League

Hi all,
I am a first time commish, but longtime player. I am going to run a small fictional league for OOTP14
If you have an interest, throw me a pm here, Thanks

Here's the bare bones of it:


The Ball of Base league will be a small fictional League. We will start with 12 teams each with 2 levels of minor leagues. Participants will be able to select thier Location/Team Name. It will take place in the present day meaning that modern rules and financials will be used.

Scouting: ON
Coaches: OFF
Suspensions: ON (normal)
Drug Suspensions: ON
Injuries: ON (normal)
Player Fatigue: Average

Ratings Scales: 1-20
Coach/Scout Ratings: 1-20

DH: OFF
Active Roster: 25-man
Playoff/expanded Roster: 40-man
Rule-5 draft: ON

Trades: ON
Draft &Trade: on
Draft Pick Trading: Only for the upcoming draft*
10/5 rule: On

Amateur Draft: ON*
Singing Bonus: ON
2012 CBA: ON

Ticket pries must remain within a set range*
Visiting team gets a 20% share
Free agency after 5 years
International Free agents: On*
Arbitration after 3 years
F/A compensation: On

All teams will get equal media contracts (not based on market size)
Owner Decides Budget
Luxery tax: ON* (thinking of doing a steep luxury tax for those who go over budget)
Cash Max: 10M

Inaugural Fantasy Draft: ON (serpentine and randomly generated)

I'm interested in your league as a first time player if you are willing to put up with a newbie.

Luxury tax applies to payrolls not budgets. With the owner in control of budget, the player will have no control, so I would be cautious on only house rules associated with budget.

Are market sizes going to be the same or just the initial media contracts?

* = means what?

Thanks

Well,

I might as well have put an (*) around the whole thing, XD
Being new to commishing, I am looking for any help I can get. What I'll most likely do is set market sizes the same (as well as anything else I need to), to make this a fair game for all, (minus the scouts, I think).

What I think you are implying is that, more needs to be done in order to accomplish this. The league hasn't been created yet, so changes can be made. I appreciate the heads up here.

My apologies, I wasn't trying to imply anything. I was looking for more detail on the league set up. A balanced league setup, if that is the objective, is very difficult to achieve in OOTP. The financial engine wants to create inflation so you will need a plan as to how you intend to achieve that. That was what I was looking for.

The "*" made me believe the option might still be in doubt. I was just trying to get clarification.

interested as well...I sent PM

I have tried to tinker with financials many times as well, but for the most part, it's just as enjoyable for me with the default settings...

Have an interest in joining. Very possible would have a very active GM wanting to come along as well. We have both been playing for a number of years.

To all who have posted, Thank you.
We are currently full, but do have plans to expand in the future. Keep an eye out here in a bit, as we will be expanding to 16-20 teams in the future.
