POLL: Retirement teams
« on: January 31, 2019, 04:00:18 AM »
This suggestion is directed at the GKO community as much as it is at Admin. At this point we basically set the norms of this silly game, if not the rules. It would be great if Admin would address this as well, but I'm not going to hold my breath wating.

We know that old players that have been capped on their NT cannot be released and often cannot be sold on the market even at 100G.

Therefore I sugest that - until this bug were fixed - managers should be allowed to make a "retirement team"...only used to purchase this kind of player. This should not be considered "cheating" as long as the transferred player is age 31 or over, has NT caps, and is sold for 100G on the market, and the retirement team is not used or played otherwise. I know this practice is widespread anyway, I just think it should be allowed.

Vote to have your say!
Rules can be de facto whether or not they are de jure

Totally disagree.

Managers who pay insane wages for free agents must have some sort of penalty for their decisions - old player with crazy high wage seems reasonable consequence of their actions. Wage limits are probably the last barrier for cheaters.

The only thing we need is players with 1 year left of their contacts to be released at the end of the season. Nothing more, nothing less.

By trying to make "new rules" we are going to make this game even more messy than it is now.
Having more than one team, by any reason - premium, retirement, youth training, etc., just ruins the fair competition and is shit!

And we urgently need CHEATER CONTROL!

Cheaters aren't botherd by wage limits! Why worry when they can buy low and sell high to their farm clubs? Cheaters are already doing this anyway. I didn't purchase any of the players on my squad I want to rid myself of as free agents, either. I would be happy exempting players purchased as free agents from this suggestion.

Fair enough, fix the bug and I'll withdraw my suggestion

I doubt that is possible.

This is looking decidedly one-sided (bump)

I suggest we organize these nationally. with a shared retirement team.
If we want to make it realistic, they should all be in Qatar, China and USA  :P

No selling for more than 100g!!!

But I let their contract run, and what hapenned? GKO renew them. I cant fire them now. Normal salaries, but high, more than 30k each. Now I cant buy any player because I get my top in salaries due to this. Few seasons ago, I lost 2 LA10 because I forgot renew them, and this seasons I dont want to renew, them renew them automatically ... grrrrrr. 

This is not fair. I agree with Bryan.
