SimCity Basketball Association

Post by Edge on Fri Nov 16, 2012 4:03 pm

So I posted a thread over at Simtropolis (to no avail) & Sim Mania (to some avail) in hopes of creating a new basketball league, and I'd love to extend the invitation to Sim Sportians.
===============================================================================================

Alright, alright, so I've started various sports leagues in the past, to various degrees of success, but never a basketball league before. Since basketball season has just started, I figure we could start one of our own!

So, I'll simulate basketball games between all the different teams in our league, just like any other league. We'll have playoffs and a championship, and we may even do an All-Star where you guys pick the lineups!!

The simulation will be done in NBA 2k13 with NBA teams, you'll use their roster. See the form for details on the logo for your team. Fill out the form below if you have any interest in having your SC4 city in a professional basketball league. You can have up to three teams in the league!!

More or less, just choose an NBA team to represent your city, and I'll sim games, and post stats, pics, and maybe even highlight reels!

I selected the Charlotte Bobcats for my team, but I don't think anyone would mind, as they were the worst NBA team ever last season.

I don't have a deadline for signup; it'll just depend on how fast we get people. Either way, I'll give you guys some advanced notice if the league starts filling up quickly.

Example:

SC4 City: Capital City
Team: Phoenix Suns
Team Name: Capital City Suns

Teams Used:
--Charlotte Bobcats (DCMetro34/Edge) [Tyros Bobcats]
--Portland Trail Blazers (Termite) [Portland Trail Blazers]
--Minnesorta Timberwolves (Republicmaster) [Rotterdam Timberwolves]
--Brooklyn Nets (K50) [New Chandler Nets]
--Miami Heat (K50) [Rockaway Bears]
--Houston Rockets (K50) [Pelham Sultans]
--Atlanta Hawks (Republicmaster) Adatan City Hawks
--Detroit Pistons (Republicmaster) Utrecht City Pistons
--Milwaulkee Bucks (simLink) Holt Crusaders
--Memphis Grizzlies (CoastRunner) [Brown River Bears]
--Sacremento Kings (Coast Runner) [Kabank Kings]
--Los Angeles Lakers (CoastRunner) [Lyon Lakers]
--San Antonio Spurs (Blakeway) [Montreal Spurs]
--Dallas Mavericks (Blakeway) [Quebec City Mavericks]
========================================================================================================
SIGNUP FORM

Team Info
SC4 City, Country:
NBA Team:
Arena Name:
Arena Capacity: (if you want)
Head Coach Name: (if you want )

Logo:
If the logo of your team has the name of NBA city on it, and you want a logo without the city name, go to sportslogos.net/teams/list_by_league/6/, and choose a logo for your team without the name, and post the link here. Since I can't post links, just copy and paste into your browser. You can use any logo or alternate logo that's on the site; they have them all! Also, you can use one of your own, however, just make sure the dimensions are close to a square. Wink
====================================================================================

It seems like that's all the info we would technically need. Looks small, huh?

Don't hesitate to post in the thread or send me a quick private message if a question or comment pops into your mind!

Well PNG's are a little less pixalated, and you said it was a bit rough...

If you weren't talking about the minor basketball pixalation, then forget what I said Razz

Thanks, Blake!! Default logos for ya?

Also, I just posted this over at Sim Mania.

Okay, awesome. Smile

Seeing as we have 14 teams, I think we can go ahead and set a deadline for this Tuesday, November 18th at 11:59 EDT.

After that, we'll go ahead and get started. Very Happy If no more teams signed up, we'd have two conferences of six, and two divisions to a conference.

However, we need to ask a few questions for you users to answer about the season!

Questions:
- How many games should be played in a season?
- How many teams should go to the playoffs?

I think that each team should play each other twice in the competition.
Maybe the top four teams could go to the finals? Very Happy

That's definitely a possibility! The only other ways I can think to do it would be to have six teams (4 division winners and 2 wildcard teams [3 from each conference].

Then, the number 1 and 2 seeds could get first-round byes. This is similar to how the NFL does its playoff system.

And, the last option would be to have 8 teams.

I don't know about Wild Card teams but that could work. I think that we shouldn't have divisions just two conferences of 7. Yes, I agree that top teams get first round byes (Its like that in the Super Rugby Competition)
8 teams mean that only 3 teams from each conference would miss out...

I think 8 teams is what we should do, as well as two conferences of seven.

I'm going to post a link to the schedule tonight! Very Happy It will be in a Microsoft Excel file. Also, if any of you guys want schedules for your respective teams, I can PM those to you, as well. See me a PM if you want 'em.

And Hey Blake, how ya doin? Razz

Also, one more question for everyone. Razz Unless any objects, I'm going to set the quarters to the normal 12 mintues. Razz
=========================================================================================================

I now have the master schedule ready for everyone!! Each team plays every other team 2 times, for a total of 26 games.

You can download the file skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=D20C3200455133B6!120&authkey=!ABFEGilElw25U7k at my Sky Drive. Very Happy Two of K50's mascots have been updated in this new version.

Games will begin Wednesday, November 21st, 2012 in the order they appear on the schedule!

I think what I am going to do is at the start of each week, post a weekly schedule of the games that will be played during that week and on what days. What I'm thinking is that results will come either that night or the day after. For example, the schedule for this week would be:

Wednesday, November 21st
Quebec City Mavericks @ Tyros Bobcats
Montreal Spurs @ Portland Trail Blazers

Thursday, November 22nd (Thanksgiving Special!! Very Happy)
Lyon Lakers @ Rotterdam Timberwolves
Kabank Kings @ New Chandler Nets
Brown River Bears @ Rockaway Bears

Friday, November 23rd
Holt Crusaders @ Pelham Sultans
Utrecht City Pistons @ Adatan City Hawks
