Deep Dive on season0 Salary Cap
In professional sports, salary caps have been a long standing tool to help maintain competitive balance by restricting richer franchises from signing more top players than their rivals. We hope to use the same mechanic in the VBA to level the playing field.
To start, we plan to have a salary cap of $18,000, with salary tied to player rarity.
  • Underdog: $2000
  • Special: $3000
  • Rare: $4000
  • Elite: $5000
  • Legendary: $6000
We chose this structure to keep things simple while still providing enough room for GMs to test different combinations of players. For example, users can create lineups that consist of:
  1. 1.
    2x Legendaries, 3x Underdogs
  2. 2.
    1x Legendary, 1x Elite, 1x Special, 2x Underdogs
  3. 3.
    2x Elite, 1x Rare, 2x Underdog
  4. 4.
    1x Elite, 2x Rare, 1x Special, 1x Underdog
  5. 5.
    4x Rare, 1x Underdog
  6. 6.
    3x Rare, 2x Special
  7. 7.
    and much more!
