    Only managers and assistant managers are allowed to post in this thread!

    Here is the midseason auction schedule. Note that all start dates refer to 00:00 GMT and end dates refer to 23:59 GMT.

    Sellbacks: February 1 - February 6
    Trade deadline: February 6
    Midseason Auction: February 7 - February 11

    Teams that sell back a player will be given credits equal to half of the player's draft price, rounded down. Simply post in the thread here if you are selling a player back. You may not re-acquire or bid on a player that you sell back at midseason; however, a player that is sold back can be drafted by another team in the midseason auction.

    Unused credits do not carry over to NPA 8 and are exhumed from each team's coffers following the end of the midseason auction. All of your remaining credits go towards big bidness ventures for NPA.

    Players who are drafted during the midseason auction may not be retained in NPA 8. Furthermore, for clarity, they may not be retained for their original purchase price if they were drafted during the initial auction, sold back, and drafted by another team in the midseason auction.

    When selling a player back, please provide a reason among one of the following so that other managers are not bidding on a player that they would otherwise not want to:
    • Inactivity (either infrequently around, missing altogether, or will miss the rest of the season)
    • Disinterest (doesn't want to play anymore, doesn't want to go to another team)
    • Defiance (unwilling to work with team, teammates, or a cancerous team chat presence)
    • Other (can be anything from perceived lack of skill to harmless lack of chemistry to wanting to try and find another player, you don't need to specify)
    If you're found to be blatantly lying about this and another team picks them up, I will punish it pretty severely. Please don't try and dupe people into picking up someone who flat out isn't playing.

    How the auction works:
    • Managers may start bidding on players at 00:00 GMT on Wednesday, February 7th - if you're a manager and cannot tell time, that's Tuesday at 7pm Eastern.
    • To bid on a player in the midseason auction, post the player and amount you'd like to bid on them for.
    • To upbid someone else, please include the player you're bidding on, the previous value, and the new highest bid.
    • All money is considered spent and rests on your bid until the player you've bid on is upbid by someone else or is sold to you. You can only have as much money on active bids as you have in your coffers.
    • A bid will be locked after 12 hours of inactivity. This means that once the player has been bid on or upbid on, if there is no bid on them for 12 hours, they are considered drafted by the highest bidder.
    • Any active bids as of February 11th at 23:59 GMT will be locked. The timestamp on forum posts will be referred to if any of you are trying to snipe someone at the last second. Please try not to do this for the sake of everyone's sanity.

    All bids and sellbacks are considered final at the time of your post. Please be very careful to post correctly and only when you're completely certain you want to make the decision. This isn't a live auction, so there is no excuse for spending 35k on a player.

    Ask any questions in the manager chat (managers only), NPA discord, or in the NPA discussion thread, not on this thread.

    Aether Symbionts sell back VGC Strategy because he doesn't have much time to dedicate to VGC18.

    The trade deadline has been reached, so no more trades may take place. There may also be no more sellbacks, everything is final. All four players sold back were sold due to inactivity or lack of time, so none of them will be placed back in the midseason auction as to avoid any pressure or awkward situations for them.

    Bidding is open!

    New Bark Loud Puppies - 10.5k credits, 0 roster slots
    Celestic Stars - 0.0k credits, 0 roster slots

    Symbionts bid 17k for DynamoVGC and since no other team can outbid, we automatically get him, making him the most expensive Midseason pick of the history of NPA.
