MANAGER LEAGUE 1st season playerlist revealed: 4/19/2012 14:56:55

We categorized the players for the first season of the manager league. The categorisation is subjective and flawed, but a neccessary first graduation of players, based on recent or expected performance in teamgames. Please note that it does not represent an evaluation of the overall strength of a player, nor was such an evaluation intended.
Within each category, players are succeptible to individual salaries, that are prone to exceeding salary boundaries of their category in an upward direction, but may never be lower than the minimal salary (of their category).
Please also bear in mind, that players that find themselves underrated in this 1st evaluation, will have it easier to find employment, while in the opposite case, they may not be employed at all.
Under the current rules, players that exceed their salary category for 2 seasons, will be advancing into the next higher category. Employment for all players may have many reasons that are not skill related and it is in itself not possible nor can it be guaranteed.
There will be an option for players that due prolonged lack of employment may wish to be downgraded a category, to do so. These players are advised to contact us at the end of the season.

At the end of the first season which hopefully will provide us all with a lot of experience, additional clubs may be created, offering a greater chance of employment for all the players.

All in all there will be 7 categories.

Hi myhand first - good on you and everyone helping set this up it really is a novel and interesting idea.

My first observation on the player division is that the classes have unequal numbers of players i.e 10 class 3 players - 4 class 2 players etc.

There are 6 teams right? I think anyway. So every team can't have a player from each class. How do you plan to keep the teams of equal strength? (I know truely equal isn't possible - but i'm guessing you are aiming for fairness?)

There are only 4 clubs. Each club has to field 2 3on3 teams per game day. Restrictions are club based. Fairness is achieved in multiple ways. First the discrepancy between players of certain categories arent that big, they are shades of grey. Player Category slots (lets call the permission for a club to field a player of a certain category a slot) are working like this: A Cat1 slot allows a club to field a player of any Category. A Category 2 slot allows a club to field a player of any Category except for Cat1.
We expect the clubs to balance out via salaries.

Thanks for the clarification - so it's more IPL (player auctions) than NFL (draft) but a bit of both due to a salary cap?

Just a question about how rankings will change. Will you keep a cap on how many players can be in each level? And how would you add new players for the next season? would you expand the number allowed in each category or would you place all new players in a seperate pool at the bottom of the bracket?

Hi Ska - it is actually minimum salary, not cap. players may demand as high a salary as they like (though maybe no manager will sign them). BUT players may never have a salary below the minimum for their category - you cannot hire Heyheuhei for $1 per game.

Have another look at the wiki page (still subject to changes) for more information http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Manager_League_Season_Beta

Hi EagleBlast - no idea. I'm hoping we get through the Beta Season ok, see what needs modifying, then worry about other things.
I would guess though, that new players would be put in what was thought the best category for them. And existing players who had a good season or improved, would be bumped up a category.

But the main thing here is the salaries - what salary can a player negotiate for him/herself from their manager.

Maybe I've missed something, but what's my incentive to negotiate a higher salary? Do I actually get anything if someone pays me $20,000, rather than my minimum wage of $16,000?

Cunning thinking, John. If you want to use this thread for that, feel free (ONLY players who are on the list here, of course).
Maybe, once the payment levels of the league are fixed, you might also want to advertise your 'expected salary' to give managers an idea how much you cost?

You are also free to contact managers directly, eg by inviting them to a game, and using the in-game chat.

Or maybe you can hire an agent? :)

Once the 'legal' player signing period is known, we will announce the start and end dates of the player signing phase - please watch the forums.

Bishes - at the end of the season, we rank players by how much money they made (salary * games contracted for). You want to finish near the top of the rankings, right? Or near the top of your category?

Also, for example: "are you a more valuable team player than eg Szweningen? Yes? Then why is he paid twice as much as you?"

Hi folks - i see Evreux is already signing players. Please note that whilst you may make informal agreements at this stage, contracts will not be 'legally binding' until the player recruitment phase officially starts.

And why has it not yet started, you ask? - because we have not yet finalised all the rules, and the cash payments - we want the managers to know exactly what their incomes are, before they sign up their players.

How do we get payed? I prefer Paypal, but a cheque would be fine also. Level 3 is minimum $8,000 a game, I'm fine with that at first.
