Post subject:  OFFER IS NOW OVER - Special Offer Thread - OFFER IS NOW OVER


With everybody locked indoors, I've had a few people tell me they're bored and they'd like more SS to help them pass the time, so I'm opening up a new special offer, which will be open for at least a few weeks, possibly longer depending on when the current social limiations end.

So the offer is as follows. You can take over any vacant team for a single payment of £10 for the remainder of that team's season. Some leagues are near the start of their season so will obviously be more popular, but if you see a team that you're interested in on the new list that Rich is working on, you can put your name down now and reserve them for week 1 of their new season.

There will be a few limitations. Firstly, you have to pay the £10 up front. Secondly, the usual limitations regarding transferring players and then dropping the team apply as always. And thirdly, you can't drop one of your other teams during this period and if you do, you'll lose the special-offer team too.

Also, all applications must be made here on the forums rather than directly to me by email, so that I have a permanent record of who took which team under this offer. Once the season is over, you can of course keep the team at normal prices if you want and combine them into your main account.

One extra offer for WPL teams. The WPL restarts it's season in a few week's time and Rich is willing to offer free slots in the WPL Super Cup, so you waive the £500,000 entry prize but still have an equal chance of winning any of the competition prizes. All fees will be paid for by Rich, so there's no free game-money being handed out here. This is dependant on receiving enough new teams to cover a new group being created (3 or 4 team groups can be created).

Again, if you're interested in any of the teams on the list, state your interest below.

They will be available as soon as week 31 has been sent out. :)

Post subject:  Re: Special Offer

For all requests, please also send me the request to my email on week 31/1 (i.e the gap before the new season), along with the payment as the team will not be attached to your main account. Or if it's currently early in the season and you want them now, just send the request to my email with the payment AS WELL as the request here. This post is just to help me and Rich keep a track of who's taking what under the special offer.

Once you've made the request here though, the team is basically yours on a first-come-first-served basis. So if you ask for a team here and it's week 28, you can just chill under week 31 and then send the email and payment to me at that point.

Also see my post re : SS2 and doing more turns per week while everyone is stuck indoors.

Post subject:  Re: Special Offer

Just to confirm regarding the WPL part of the offer. We have 4 teams under new management so they will make up a new group in the Super Cup, which will be updated accordingly.

I imagine all four will be changing team names so feel free to post the planned changes on the Team Name change thread in the wpl area thanks.

The new group created are -

West Ruislip - CHRIS COOK
Springfield (may relegate) - PAUL ROTHON
Willoughby (relegating) (Available no earlier than week 31) - SI HOTHERSALL
Manx Town - DAVID WOOD

Another addition, if the league is close to the end of a season (E.G The Elz is near the end of it's season), then I don't really mind giving you the remaining few weeks for free, but you need to remind me again on week 1 that you've paid for the new season. So take the team now, I'll flag the season as paid then I'll need to flag it again on week 1.

If the league is nowhere near the beginning/end of it's season, then I don't mind adjusting it to the same sort of rate, which is about 33p per turn, so if it's somewhere between week 10 and 25, feel free to pay a bit less based on that rate, e.g £1 per 3 weeks remaining.

I realise I'm adjusting this as I go along, but the purpose of this offer really is to just give people something to do while they're locked down like this at a very low rate.

Still free mate as all requests have to be placed on this post to be valid. :)

In other words, they are yours, just e-mail Glynn and he will no doubt send them to you.
