GridRival's league games have a built-in team value protection to keep the game fun and exciting. Oftentimes, if your driver/rider contracts result in significant drops in value early in the season, it can be difficult to recover. Here is how it works:
After an event has been scored, GridRival will apply salary credits to teams meeting the following two conditions:
The total team value falls below $100M
At least one position on your fantasy lineup is empty following the event in which your team's value dropped below the threshold.
Salary floor credits are applied after leaderboard entries are calculated. Therefore, leaderboard entries will reflect the true team value drop while the team will have the opportunity to remain competitive.
Following the Italian GP, a team’s value drops from $105M to $101M.
SALARY FLOOR RESULT: No credit applied. Team value is above the salary floor.
Following the Italian GP, a team’s value drops from $105M to $99.4M. Two drivers have completed their contracts, resulting in two positions being empty for the following GP.
SALARY FLOOR RESULT: A credit of $0.6M will be applied to raise the total team value to $100M.
LEADERBOARD RESULT: The leaderboard entry for the Italian GP will reflect the full $4.4M team value drop, however, the salary credit will be immediately reflected on the user’s bank balance (MyGrid).
Following the Italian GP, a team’s value drops from $105M to $99.4M. However, all drivers and constructors remain under contract for the next GP.
SALARY FLOOR RESULT: No credit will be applied as the drivers still have an opportunity to regain value over the life of the contract.
