Season 3 introduces Disc Tycoon mode. A select few will have the chance to recruit players by negotiating salaries and bonuses, while managing their salary cap and fending off rival disc tycoons who are trying to sign the same players. Noob Cup uses smackeroos as its currency but we use the dollar sign and refer to this currency as money.
This season, the salary cap is $5.8 Million. It’s important to note that the cap applies only to salaries. Any bonuses that are paid to players will be taken from the disc tycoon’s cut of the prize money. You can sign up to 5 players and although there is no minimum roster requirement, you are required to have 3 players on your roster in order to qualify for the Team Sportsmanship prize.
In order to prevent an unscrupulous disc tycoon from making side deals with shady players, disc tycoons can’t sign a player for a value lower than the player’s market value. For example, if Player X is valued at $1,000,000, a disc tycoon will need to offer the player at least that amount. Keep in mind that a player doesn’t have to accept that amount. Here are the market values for each player:
Disc tycoons can negotiate with players privately or publicly. Contracts are made public as soon as both parties agree to terms and it’s approved by the commissioner. While it may be advantageous for disc tycoons to use public forums to negotiate and possibly gain an upper hand on their rivals by spreading propaganda, it may also be wise to negotiate privately at times and keep their rivals in the dark about which players they are interested in.
Players are not obligated to sign with any disc tycoon, however, unsigned players will receive only 75% of their market value as their salary. Players who are unsigned will continue to compete as usual and can still qualify for the Champions league.
Disc tycoons and players will negotiate the salary that will be paid and the percentage of prizes each party will receive. Although disc tycoons are obligated to offer players their market value at a minimum, they can freely negotiate the percentage of prizes they are willing to share with players without restrictions.
