Proposal: Training and Trading

Reaches quorum 7-0. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 23 Apr 2017 21:38:32 UTC

Enact the following rule “Training”:

As an action (without limitation of time), any manager may spend $(DICE100*1,000) to train a player. Training is an Atomic Action consisting of

1. Declaring a primary and secondary stat (including a player’s level)
2. Rolling 1 DICE6 in the GNDT.
3. If the result is 1, decreasing both the primary and secondary stats by 1.
If the result is 2 or 3, doing nothing.
If the result is 4, increasing the primary stat by 1.
If the result is 5, increasing both the primary and secondary stats by 1.
If the result is 6, increasing the primary stat by 2 and the secondary stat by 1.

Enact the following rule “Trading”:

Managers may not have negative cash or take any action that would cause them to have negative cash. As an action (without limitation of time), a manager may trade a bloggsball player (from their team) with a bloggsball player (from another team), with the approval of the other manager. The managers may also pay each other money in this transaction. A payment consists of decreasing the cash of one manager by a certain amount, then increasing the cash of the receiving manager by an equal amount.

As an action (without limitation of time), a manager may put a bloggsball player (from their team) up for auction. The auction duration may be of any length they choose and need not be stated in advance. The auction is begun by the manager posting a story post including at least the player’s name and stats. An auction may not be ended without selling the player. Players put up for auction do not count as one of a Manager’s three Bloggers for the purposes of all rules.

Any comment on an Auction that contains the string “I bid $X” or “I bid £X” is a valid bid of value X if X is an unambiguous positive integer and the commenting Manager employs fewer than three Bloggers. After the Auction has been posted for more than 48 hours, the Manager (of the team on which the player currently plays) may close the auction by noting this in a comment. When the auction is closed, the Manager who had the valid bid with the highest value X spends X from their Cash to employ that Blogger, breaking ties toward the first bidder. The amount X spent is added to the cash of the Manager (of the team on which the player currently plays).

As an action (without limitation of time), a manager may offer any other manager a sum of money for another player. If the other manager accepts, the player is moved to the team of the first manager and the sum of money is paid by the first manager to the second manager.

I copied text from “Recruitment” to allow for an equivalent process.

I really like having it be at-will instead of daily because avoids grind.

Also economics will really make shit crazy.

Cuddlebeam, I thought about having it be daily, but I didn’t see any real advantage.
