Hey!

 

Apparently me and Matt (manager of Grizzlies @GHL, Biscuit) encountered some sort of cap bug.

 

I guess the cap was changed from s8->s9 before the day changed from s8d77->s9d1, but since it was still d77 we could offer contracts that only affected the next years cap, but since the cap was already changed we we're offering the contracts for s10 I guess. But when the day changed to s9d1 I atleast couldn't offer anymore contracts due to -cap so I guess it went back to "normal" and it's just because the cap changed before the day changed.

 

So in short,

 

I was able to offer contracts on d77 that made me go negative cap in next season.

That's a big advantage this season for you. I hope we get this one sorted.

How about reverse the last players you signed and put them back in FA? For example Villasenor and Dubov, so you're team has a healthy cap space and its fair for the rest of the league.

No sorry.

 

Still looking for what may caused this bug.

 

Do you know if this only happened for teams promoting/relegating?

Nope, been @GHL for few seasons in a row now. I don't know was it my messy message or you'v already brought it to you'r thoughts, but it seemed to me like the cap changed before the day changed.

So that there was few hours when the cap had already switched to s9, but it still showed s8d77 on the upper right corner. So it allowed me and Matt (Muffet of Grizzlies @GHL Biscuit) atleast to offer players contracts for s9&s10 cap hits, but it was still s8d77. I guess it got "fixed" at some point, maybe when the day changed to s9. By "fixed" I mean the cap and day was at the same season and bug "gone".

Anders, any idea if there will be some changes for this issue or will it be for the rest of the season?

I had noticed this as well on day 77.  It allowed me to offer contracts to new FAs the last few hours of Season 8.  In my case, no one signed until season 9, so no cap issues.  It became apparent because my players I chose not to resign (Villasenor was one, coincidentally) were released about half way through day 77, freeing up cap space in Season 8.

It's going to be hard to fix already affected teams I'm afraid. I'll try to fix this bug as soon as possible to prevent more damage.
