With SC’s official launch yesterday came some dramatic rule changes to the game. Increased trades, a new “trade boost” mechanic, rolling positional updates and flexibility during lockout. Details of the major rules changes are below.
How does it impact the game as whole? Has it changed your starting picks and general strategy? Which players are you eyeing off to gain DPP? Have read and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
TRADES: AMOUNT & TRADE BOOST
– Every coach now has 35 trades over 23 rounds with a maximum of two per round and three during the byes (Rounds 12-14)
– Trade Boost (TB): Up to five trade boosts can be used in any round to gain an extra trade for that round, up to a maximum of three per round or four during the byes. These bonus trades come out of your total of 35, and you can choose to use some, all or none of your five available trade boosts.
ROLLING POSITIONAL UPDATES
At regular intervals during the season Champion Data will reassess player positions and assign dual-position status to players if their on-field role changes. For example, in 2021 Jack Ziebell was listed as a forward in KFC SuperCoach but spent the entire season at full-back – under the new rule he could become a FWD-DEF player mid-season.
TRADING DURING LOCKOUT
Change your trade plans during a round? Now you have ultimate flexibility to adjust your moves after lockout – providing the players involved aren’t locked out and don’t bust your salary cap.
