Season 44

Due to my crappy builds, my season 43 playoffs are pretty much over before they have even started, so what does the West League landscape look like for next season? Please post here if you can confirm a team will be active.

Vice City Heat and Oasis will be merging, so hopefully another team arises or is revived so we can have a full Pro A again. My other 10 players are available if other teams need players, or otherwise I will just run them as a semi-competitive auto-trained filler team.

Confirmed teams:
1. Manchester Rain
2. BM
3. Old School All-Stars
4. Pacific Rimmers
5. Team Wafu
6. Animal House
7. CR Veterans
8. NFL Blitz
9. Old West
10. The Magic Johnsons
11. Pimpolgy2

Re: Season 44

I'll be here for a little while longer.

Trying to think about how to get a Triple Double player next season, some other interesting builds for the team. This season's one was certainly interesting. Not sure how much confidence I have in it come playoff time - -But definitely some funky player builds.

Re: Season 44

I'm pretty sure the ever-name changing Pacific Rimmers will be active next season. 

Anyone have suggestions for a theme?

Re: Season 44

In planning for next season, I thought of a few things I don't want to try on my main team but that could work out really well, so I am considering running my "filler team" in an increased capacity.

Re: Season 44

We should try to attract some more users back.

Naptown - Pimp 101
Connbound - Old West
MenZ/Citi - Best in WESTeros
CHICKEN - HOODOO GURUS

Would be good if we could maintain 10+ teams. This league can be really interesting and fun with all the different builds you can try.

Re: Season 44

I'll probably run my secondary team as a full-time team again after thinking about it, though I'm not sure I can fully commit to it. But this league is really dropping off now and I wish some more users would return as well. We're already down to 9 active just based on teams who have said they are not returning, and it would be 8 if I don't run my second team.

Re: Season 44

Re: Season 44

I sent PM's to the captains of the West Season 44 teams to see if you guys would be interested in playing in tournaments/leagues throughout the season.

It sucks with only 9 teams training 42 Days to perk at the end into a completely new/more powerful team -- just to play for 3 days at the very end of the season. So I thought we could implement our own tournament/league to see who is consistently the best.

Might create some fun.

Re: Season 44

Let's do it for sure! I'm in with CRV and BM!

I could run Hoodoo, but I'm not sure I can handle 3 (2.5) teams on my own, plus helping out with FC.

Re: Season 44

Moving away from the Old School Court Rivals All-Stars theme and toward the Old School Cartoon All-Stars theme.

Pinky and the Brain
Rocko's Modern Life
Johnny Bravo
The Simpsons
The Wild Thornberrys
I Am Weasel
Rocket Power
Banana's in Pyjamas
Pokemon
Ed, Edd n Eddy

Got 10 more cartoons in the bank for next season too.

Re: Season 44

I think it would be really difficult to coordinate an in-season tournament, though I am interested. My personal preference is the preseason tourney idea. (and I am captain of two teams, so I get two votes... just kidding lol)

Re: Season 44

I would be PMing the teams to use their challenges on certain teams and such. I think it would be interesting/fun to try at least.

I would want to do both.

Re: Season 44

We have 12 teams for next season as far as I'm aware. Seeding would be like so based on Playoff finishes/Season rankings:
[1] BM (matty)
[2] CR Veterans (matty)
[3] Animal House (thunderstrikers)
[4] The Magic Johnsons (carl_johnson)
[5] Old School All-Stars (Harbour)
[6] HOODOO GURUS (CHICKEN/matty)
[7] Manchester Rain (carl_johnson)
[8] Pacific Rimmers (PeterPan)
[9] Team Wafu (jrwafu)
[10] NFL Blitz (Troy)
[11] Old West (Connbound)
[12] Pimpology 101 (Naptown)

I was thinking we could run some tournaments/leagues throughout the season to make it a bit more meaningful?

Here's the format I was thinking.

*EARLY-SEASON TOURNAMENT* [SHORT DURATION: 12 DAYS]
3 Pools of 4 Teams, Play eachother once.
Top 6/Bottom 6 Pool, Play eachother once.
Quarter Finals, Semi Finals, Finals (Single Elimination)

Pool 1: #1 BM, #6 HOODOO GURUS, #7 Manchester Rain, #12 Pimpology 101
Pool 2: #2 CR Veterans, #5 Old School All-Stars, #8 Pacific Rimmers, #11 Old West
Pool 3: #3 Animal House, #4 The Magic Johnsons, #9 Team Wafu, #10 NFL Blitz


*WEST PREMIERSHIP* [LONGER DURATION: 23 DAYS]
12 Teams, play eachother twice each
Grand Final between #1 and #2 at the end

These two would last us most of the regular season

* Then, at the end of the year we will have our usual single elimination tournament (aka official court rivals playoffs).

Ahh, I should have known that. I read through the proposal you sent earlier more carefully, and the Manchester Rain and my second team are down for both.

Re: Season 44

Cool stuff. Just need to hear from PeterPan (Pacific Rimmers) and Troy (NFL). Do we even know if Troy is coming back?

No, I only added NFL Blitz to the first post because you included them in the message about the tournaments.
