Earning a higher salary cap
This article explains when you can earn a higher salary cap in the Citizen Sports Salary Cap games.
Managing your salary cap is part of the strategy of the Salary Cap game. You start with a base salary cap for your team, but you can increase your salary cap if players you own increase in value.
Example: If you purchase a player for $8 million and that player performs well, causing them to be added by multiple teams, that player will increase in value, and you can then sell them for $10 million. As a result, you will have increased your cap by $2 million.
This is the advantage of choosing undervalued players initially and allows you to purchase higher salaried players later in the season if you want to replace them.
Player values fluctuate based on ownership. If you have players whom other owners add to their roster, their value will increase and be reflected in your cap number. If other owners drop players you have, your cap number will decrease.
