It has come to my attention that the way petty cash is handled on the site is not working as intended as of the BB2016 rules. While there is no up to date official FAQ about this to my knowledge, the grapevine is pretty clear about this. The linked website states there will be a "published FAQ" with a clarification, this FAQ has not appeared anywhere as of yet.

Either way, given this resource and the posts made on Facebook and on TFF, I think that's about as close to an official ruling as we can expect to see about this.

So, to this end, FUMBBL will be reverting back to the CRP rules for this for the competitive divisions (Ranked and Blackbox). Specifically, there are two options that will change:

- Petty cash affects TV. This will be turned ON.
- Treasury is automatically transferred to petty cash. This will be turned OFF.

This change will be done at some point on Monday morning (2018-07-30).

Edit: This rule change has now been applied.

First of all: Thank Christer for all you do for the site.

On this change: Very good news. The way petty cash is handled is the only point I disliked in the 2016 rules (I mean for the rules applied on fumbbl, I don't know yet all the 2016 rules).

Thanks again for all your hard work Christer, and good call on this. I know you've been doing a lot of hard programming work recently (love the new mobile app for spectating!), but in a way this was even more important. In essence two people log on here and want to enjoy a game; the whole point of tv and inducements should be to ensure they can both enjoy a reasonably balanced match. Glad GW, NAF and now FUMBBL have addressed the initial poor wording on inducements, which occasionally allowed silly metagaming with players getting 100s of gold in free inducements over their opponents. That was daft and I'm glad it's history!

The new "Petty Cash doesn't add to TV" rule is only meant to be a part of leagues with the SEASONS rules in place.

With SEASONS implemented the BB16 "Petty Cash no TV" rule works very well.

This rule does not work in perpetual Ranked/Blackbox style environments though. Glad it's been removed.

the only thing I noticed is that the bug that used to be in LEAGUE, now is active in RANKED -> u can get more than 2,000,000 induecemtns by hitting random numbers and I doubt it is something we want, right? I am not an expert but am I right in my assumption that getting rid of this bug would not take ages?
