CPL Basketball 5 Discussion

Discussion in 'CPL Basketball' started by Eds, Oct 27, 2015.


How should contracts be determined?

  1. Contracts should be completely as they are in real life

  2. Contract lengths should be as they are in real life, but salary determined based on draft pick

  3. Salaries should be determined by draft pick, and contract length randomised

  1. Eds E Ames

    Who would be keen?

    I'm thinking this would be far more interesting if there were actually a hope of it going long-term. The draft would likely be very different and we'd potentially have teams focusing on things other than just winning the championship. So if we can get good numbers I'm more than happy to run it.
  2. Weeman27bob BE Force

    Keen, but probably teaming up with someone.
    [MENTION=5168]Teacups[/MENTION] ?
  3. Gazza GJ Weaver

  4. jimmy_c8 MC James

    I'd be keen
  5. Benny BS Read

    Yeah I'm down for this how would you run it though?
  6. Eds E Ames

    lemme guess

  7. Benny BS Read

    Nah more thinking what sim you gunna use? And yeah you thinking fantasy draft or pick from existing franchises?
  8. Eds E Ames

    It's looking pretty likely I'll be able to knock something up in Excel; just a case of how detailed. This would be ideal as I can easily format it to work on lineups that are copied & pasted straight from the lineups thread.

    I was thinking fantasy draft, given there's already an NBA GM type thing going on. Should be pretty interesting to see how people prioritise potential vs. ability in a draft too.
  9. Hunter AD Hunt

    You should've joined PPL Basketball.

    keen though.

  14. Eggman DA Eggman

    Fucking hell [MENTION=3]Eds[/MENTION].

    I have a massive plan for a CPL BBall reboot (mousey to c), i was holding off because i wanted to wait until my uni semester was over (in a week).
  15. Bender BG Herd

    Yeah keen
  16. Benny BS Read

    [MENTION=34]Eggman[/MENTION] to do it :p
  17. Iridium IT Lee

    Keen. Having this and GM going at the same time will be awesome. That and we're heading into the new NBA season.
  18. Benny BS Read

    So long as simming is easy to do quickly to ensure progression promptly like iridium has done with GM it should make it interesting imo
  19. Eggman DA Eggman

    I was going to do it BasketballGM but use all the rosters they have and to a all time NBA CPL. And instead of Draft, auction.

    So [MENTION=34]Eggman[/MENTION] is cool with me running it on a new sim.

    & I reckon that's enough people for it to be worth it. Ideally we'd get to 16+.

    Sign ups:
    Team Name:

    Location can be anywhere in the US or Canada, and you'll also get allocated a 'market size'. As I mentioned in the OP, the idea is for this to go on long-term and bigger market size = more attraction to players in free agency, easier to negotiate player contracts etc. But obviously everyone would just pick big market locations if that were the case so I'll give the smaller market teams more scouts (gives you a better idea on upcoming draft picks, and even when scouting current players); maybe they could even get a better chance in the draft lottery etc. too - there'll definitely be some decent rewards to going small market.

    Max. two teams in one city/location.. first come first served. Ideally not two teams from a small/medium market city either.

    If you're not sure where to pick, market size is roughly determined by these plus a few other things:

    Ideally don't pick a city + team name combo that is already in the NBA, but I guess we could allow old names. Don't be boring though.
