Add the following to “Debt”

The Company Equity is equal to the Company Budget minus the Company Debt. If the Company Equity is below zero the Company is In the Red (otherwise it is not in the red)

In “Equity” replace

At any time, an Employee may increase their Vesting by X, where X is the Company’s Budget multiplied by that Employee’s own Options; upon the completion of this action, that Employee’s amount of Options is set to 0.

with

If the Company is not In The Red, an Employee may increase their Vesting by X, where X is the Company’s Equity multiplied by that Employee’s own Options; upon the completion of this action, that Employee’s amount of Options is set to 0.

Divide the Vesting of all employees by 10.

Note that this is really isn’t a bampam, as if we don’t patch this severyone can take advantage of it and get super high vesting as well.

I encourage all employees to carefully consider whether their options will immediately become worthless upon the enactment of this proposal, and whether Sales could then arrange to never have the company in the black again.

Thing is, if our options become worthless you and Ty would have a clear lead on vesting. sales would need to start selling stuff if they want to catch up.

I assume something a bit fishy happened that I didn’t notice? Yeah, sure, this is fine by me.  for

With SupernovaStarbright an order of magnitude above everyone else, this has turned from a baMpam to a bampaM.

@Brendan, IDK the acronym’s actual wording. What’s the difference between the two M’s?

“bampam” = “Benefit a majority, punish a minority.” When no one had more than a few hundred Vesting, this was clearly a case of bringing down the most-vested players into the range where any other player could cash in a few options at the right time and get into contention. You only need the budget to be in the black by $10-20 and have 10 Options to get into the $100 range yourself.

But I think the state of play has changed since this proposal was submitted. The company net budget, so the budget if we were to bring things into the black, is around $25. This is now a TERRIBLE deal for the entirety of Manufacturing, who are very unlikely to be able to cash in on a $200+ budget at any point for the rest of the dynasty. In other words, it’s gone from its original proposition into “benefit a minority” (players in the $1000+ range, or with ~20 Options” and “punish a majority” (everyone else).

against This makes the dynasty straightforwardly into Brendan vs Supernova vs TyGuy.

I mean… Clucky’s a strong contender to, but I see what you mean. I don’t think it locks everyone else out quite that solidly, but either way, Work the Dancefloor should reset everything, right?
