CP Tracker 2023.pdf
Here's your guide to the tracker:
Because the most recent update available was before last year's winter meetings, it was necessary to reconstruct the previous offseason. So you'll see the 2021 carry over figure and 2022 earned CP as calculated by Matt. Then I worked in any CP trades at last year's winter meetings. I used the tally of CP rewards (also published by Matt) to figure the CP spent last winter, which gives us the 2022 carry over figure.
Bear in mind that 450 CP is maximum amount any team can have at any time. So any time a team's balance went over 450, it was adjusted down. For example, when a team's carry over from the previous year plus earned CP goes over 450, that amount is adjusted down to 450
before spending is taken out, which happened to some teams.
In a few cases spending appears to have exceeded the amount of available CP. There may have been CP awards unaccounted for in the last tracker published. I adjusted the carryover up to zero in those instances.
Where a GM changed teams, the carry over from 2022 for the previous team was used.
That brings us to 2023. Matt's departure midseason left us with no record for some CP award categories. Because of the time it would have taken, or near impossibility, to accurately tally winter meetings attendance (2hrs, 25 CP), winter meetings top prospect trades (25 CP), amateur draft attendance (5 rounds, 25 CP), and forum posts (1 CP per 3), it was decided to lump all of these together, along with some additional CP as a reward to PEBA GMs who put up with the transition, into a single participation award of 200 points. Yes, everybody gets a participation trophy. Writing CP is tallied separately as normal based on GM self-reporting. So, your maximum possible award for 2023 is 300 points.
Going forward, we will have an accurate CP tally for 2024.
Lastly, partly as an expedient and partly as a policy, we did away with CP penalties for 2023.
As a reminder, there's still time to claim your writing CP. Get those word counts to me.
Thanks.
