Players on Offer

Postby Stomalomalus » Thu May 06, 2021 9:18 am

Who here pays attention to players on offer?

There always seems to be a few good players up for offer. I know I sometimes put them up, too. And not all of them are posted in the Offers/Valuations forum.

So my question is: who pays attention to these players?

Does anyone track them or search for on offer players?

Needs a search function to useful. Only players I ever look are ones that players post in forums.

Why would you put a player on offer if you don't advertise it though? Or if you haven't received an offer.

I put some of my players on offer when I don't really want to sell them right away, for example: I don't want to sell him yet but if I get a really good price I'm willing to sacrifice short-term success for long term gain; or, as a marker for myself that this is the value I'm looking to train him to.

While a list/ability to search for players on offer is certainly something I would use, I can see why it isn't present. Essentially, such a list would become just another transfer market - and, moreover, one where sellers can get away with not paying a listing fee. And that would have the potential to cause problems: I play another game where players can be sold without paying a fee, and unfortunately some try to take advantage of it by listing mediocre players at inflated prices to try to fool inexperienced or desperate managers into buying them, with no real downside if the player doesn't sell. I wouldn't like to see people start using similar strategies in Stumped.
