30 Day Eligibility
Just a quick one guys.
Say I buy a player at 5pm and they have a match exactly 30 days from now that kicks off at 8pm, would the futures be eligible
for G+A for that match?
Basically, are you covered for the whole of that 30th day or would the cut off be 5pm as that is when I purchased?
Well if you guys don't know, I've no chance! haha
That's a really good question!
I believe the timeframe for eligible G&A divs is always the full day, rather than a cutoff based on purchase time. This is because when you buy a player, regardless of the time you are eligible to win G&A divs from that day.
So in your example, a purchase at 5pm would make you eligible for G&A divs in that day between 00:00 and 23:59 (midnight to midnight), essentially making it day 1. You can then work out the full 30 days that those futures will be eligible to win G&A divs.
Hope this makes sense
@Rhymenoceros I don't trade for G&A so wouldn't know - but is that genuinely how it works? You can, for example, wait until someone has scored a hat-trick and then buy them after the fact and collect the divs?
That seems insane.
That day you buy is day 1 i imagine, so the next 29 days would all qualify.
@lotsofgoats I don't trade for G+A either but if I wait until later in the week I can sneak another match day in on the 30th day so that was my thinking! But yes you can buy after the event (in your example a hat-trick) all the way up until midnight on the day it happens and still reap the dividends for that performance. This is why some players suffer a drop after the midnight deadline has passed.
I think @Rhymenoceros is right in what he is saying and it makes perfect sense, thank you!
