    That would make it worse, because a greater number of teams will have no players if teams can get up to five

    Just a suggestion, but once bidding is over for a player and you post what they went for, I think you should also post the next closest bid. You don't have to show what GM it is, just the price. That way we know if we could have gotten that player for 8M less, or just barely beat someone out.

    Or not, it was just an idea.

    i was gonna do it like this


    Auction Group 1
    Lebron James: 25,000,000 winning bid; $24,500,000; $24,000,000; $23,900,000
    Stephen Curry: etc
    Kevin Durant: etc
    Kawhi Leonard: etc


    show the winning bid in bold, and the next three best bids after. So essentially what you suggested but slightly more

    I like that as well because the bidding process is blind it would be helpful to get a feel for how players are being valued.

    Also if a GM wins on more than two bids, lets say 3, do they get to pick the two the want out of the 3

    in the unlikely event where that happens, they will get the most expensive players. It is impossible for someone to bid and win 3 bids in a single round (just because of the number of teams and limited cap space). But let's say someone has 1 player already won, and they win 2 players in another auction group. They will be granted whichever player they bid the most money on. (The other player they don't get, and will go to the next highest bidder)

    I went from:

    "I probably won't get any of these players"

    To:

    "It will probably be close"

    All the way to:

    "Uh oh, I think I overpaid"

    So I actually have no clue, which is what makes this fun, I think.
