    So with me being new to bb2 I was kinda wondering how the players market works in the BC or if it's used at all

    At this point it is not used at all. I don't even remember it being discussed, but there is a slim chance I missed something.

    We have it kept off. I believe in the Munch cup they are going to try it.

    It is not implemented in the game yet.

    What? Seriously?
    I am pretty sure I read @Lembocha's post that they have it enabled and use it in their league, although with some custom rules.

    Either way I highly doubt we'll ever be using it in the Big Crunch.

    I'm not sure why you would use it if it were in place. To get rid of a player with injuries and hope someone needs a skilled up player and is willing to take the injuries? Why wouldn't they just start with a rookie?

    I feel like in a long term developed league you might use it to cut TV

    Cutting TV is easy, you just sack them.

    I could have seen a team low on cash and players selling a star to a younger team to be able to afford to rebuild - but the younger team is unlikely to have so much money it matters any.. and might not want to buy an old fart either..

    I think a players market can work but you need to be able to build your league round it. Possibly something like the OFL. But that would require us to have much more flexibility in league structure.

    I suppose it could work in COL as it would allow you to sell a couple of players to get some of the expensive cosmetic stuff that the bank rule prevents anyone from getting.

    The 150k softcap on gold makes it difficult for coaches to afford star players and realistically use the market.

    But it'd be handy if, for example, one team had a player which rolled doubles or stats for their first lvlup, and wanted to sell to a higher team so that they could get more gold to buy additional rerolls/positionals etc. Or even for some coaches, they might simply want to sell their lvl2 players which didn't roll doubles/stats, and then either buy a lvl1 or look on the market for players which did roll doubles/stats.

    Also I think that the market would work best with aging on, so that high level players which are old could be sold off to newer teams who wanted a star, and replaced with a younger, although possibly lower level player.

    Market works if no leagues are currently active and an admin turns it on. But since the minimum bid is the player price + 1k per increased TV of skill/stat, you would need to make several swaps to make it work: aka I will buy your unskilled lineman for 100k even though he is only worth 70k if you want to buy my injured star-player I would like to replace for 200k. This so you have the money to make the minimum bid.

    Yeah the market is at cross purposes with cash above 150k counting towards your TV.

    I'd like a market if only to try to get the last of the achievements!
