So, here's the rundown of the normal reward structure:
- All league champions get their team free in 2010. They also earn a free team that can be used in a new league or to pick up an orphan team.
- All winners of the other post-season tournaments - the Gore Cup and the Bottomfeeder Open - win a free extra team that can be used in a new league or to pick up an orphan team.
- The winner of the Benchwarmer Bash gets 2 free seasons for that team. The Bash runner up gets one free season (this is added on for future seasons if they were a league champ and already getting the team free in 2010).
The "bonus" teams are just that - and are meant to seed new leagues. They cannot be used to cover payment for existing teams.
New Owner Specials - For brand new people who have never played Benchwarmer before, we're currently running a special through the end of October. They can sign up and get their first team in new leagues for free (normal prices apply for teams beyond the first). This is being advertised currently in USA Today Sports Weekly. The goal is to pull in more people and get them hooked (and become paying customers!) for future seasons. It is possible that in November and December we may have some reduced rates for new owners. Tell your friends - this is a great opportunity for them to try out Benchwarmer for a year at no risk!
