    Default Correction to Loyalty Discounts

    A very minor change here... While looking at the shawstitution for other stuff, I noticed we still had this in Section V.E.2(b)(1):

    1) Loyalty Discounts:
    2% reduction per OOTP loyalty point (2-20%, total)
    For example, pitcher Duane Sparks in the 2043 draft taken by TRI rounded up to an 11. Should we treat him as a 10 or an 11 for the purposes of loyalty discounts down the line?

    Since we have already seen loyalty ratings above 10, the implied "maximum" of 20 percent here is not technically correct unless we want to cap it at 20 percent. I don't have a good read on if people wanted that to be a max or not. Previously there was a pretty sizable bunch that actually wanted it even lower than 20 or capped at 20 for all pre-legacy discounts, but most of that took place when I wasn't around - and in a different player talent pool environment.

    I think we should change the shawstitution to read either one of these two:

    If we want it to cap out at Loyalty 10 for maximum 20% due to loyalty, change what's in the parentheses

    1) Loyalty Discounts:
    2% reduction per OOTP loyalty point (maximum 20% for this discount)
    OR

    If we don't want a cap in case there are freak cases, just eliminate what's in the parentheses

    1) Loyalty Discounts:
    2% reduction per OOTP loyalty point
    Capping total discounts is something else entirely, which I choose to exclude from the scope of this inquiry.

    I'm agree with the distinguished Morgadoodle from the DC area.

    It's that funky 200->11 rounding again. Pretty sure the routine I use to calculate uses 200->10.

    Whenever we do an omnibus correction vote, we should probably still change this language just to be sure there is no argument from anyone.

    ez, The Mike, and CJP all in the same week? WHAT THE FUCK!

    Maybe there *is* something to this Mayan calendar bullshit, because I'm pretty sure that's 3 Horsemen of the Apocalypse right there.

    You can't have five apocalyptic horsemen. Somebody has got to go.
