    Sup PS3 Owners of the TSO,

    We are trying to get enough quality guys to start an OA for the new NBA 2K14 that's dropping in October. We have permission to get a league up and running, but first we need to get the users. Please sign up here with answers to the following questions. Looking to recruit 16 owners, 8 in each conference. This is a Non-Premiere League so all are free to apply.

    We promote an active community and prefer that our members check in on a nearly daily basis; do you anticipate any issues in being active on the forums and contributing to the league and the TSO community in general?

    What is the general schedule when you would expect to be available to play league games?

    I'm the commish of Chompions League

    Chompions League

    Why do you want to join the WAH B-Ball league?
    2k is probably my favorite game to play but it can be very cheesy. Think this league has a lot of potential with a good sim structure.

    Why would you be a good addition to the league?
    Well I'm going to be a co-comish ;)

    We promote an active community and prefer that our members check in on a nearly daily basis; do you anticipate any issues in being active on the forums and contributing to the league and the TSO community in general?
    Not at all

    What is the general schedule when you would expect to be available to play league games?
    It varies on the day but I'm never out of pocket, just text me and we'll figure it out

    With the next generation of consoles on the horizon; do you foresee circumstances where you would stop playing NBA 2K14 on the PS3 in favor of one of the new consoles?
    With me being in 2 leagues on the PS3 (CL and this) I don't anticipate being an early mover when it comes to buying a PS4, no

    What does “simulation” B-Ball mean to you?
    Running plays, but varying play call. Hedging screens, not trying to draw charges all over the court. Not going for cheesy steals. Using your bench and calling timeouts. Making realistic trades. Varying shot selection by distance and by player. Man-to-man primary D. I could go on..

    What is your favorite team? And is having them a deal breaker for you or are you willing to play with any team that is available?
    Big Cavs fan would really like to play with them. Getting the Cavs, Warriors, or Grizz would be really nice

    What is your previous league experience (if any)? I have run in NBA 2k12 leagues on the 360 and briefly in a NBA 2K13 league here at the TSO

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in. Currently in (2) Madden 25 lgs, and an NCAA 14 OD

    Why do you want to join the WAH B-Ball league? Looking to ball in a Sim B-Ball league, NBA 2K puts out a good game yearly, it's only right that I get to enjoy it without the lobby cheese...
    Why would you be a good addition to the league? I'm active, plays the game the right way, win or lose. Co-Commissioning also most likely. I like to keep the leagues I'm in live with content contributions, color commentary, and sarcasm...it's all in fun and making for an enjoyable experience.

    We promote an active community and prefer that our members check in on a nearly daily basis; do you anticipate any issues in being active on the forums and contributing to the league and the TSO community in general? None at all

    What is the general schedule when you would expect to be available to play league games? Usually via schedule, Mon-Fri 730p - 1030p est, Anytime on Saturdays and Sundays (accepts when my 'Skins are playing)

    With the next generation of consoles on the horizon; do you foresee circumstances where you would stop playing NBA 2K14 on the PS3 in favor of one of the new consoles? I bought a PS4 and have a Xbox 1 reserved...Looks like all my leagues are sticking to this gen for the cycle, so I'm keeping the PS3 throughout.

    What does “simulation” B-Ball mean to you? Personally, I like to run plays, and use tactics that you'd see in a real NBA game. I prefer user control on ball defense...NO exploiting the games flaws, such as spamming doubles, full court pressing the entire game, running and gunning, etc...

    What is your favorite team? And is having them a deal breaker for you or are you willing to play with any team that is available? No problem, plenty of teams to run with.

    What is your previous league experience (if any)?
    Played in NCAA Football Chompion's League for parts of two seasons. Quit the first year because of school, and this season because I realized I no longer enjoy college football titles like I used to. Any of my league mates could confirm that I was active and easy-going.

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in.
    N/A
    Why do you want to join the WAH B-Ball league?
    As of NBA 2k12, I really enjoy 2k's basketball titles and I would not mind stepping up the competition and getting more out of the game than just playing my friends around town. I enjoy what TSO has to offer, and I think an NBA 2k14 league would be awesome.

    Why would you be a good addition to the league?
    I am a competitive, friendly and active gamer that would bring a great franchise to the league. I also work in professional sports, so I bring the background and experience to create awesome content and keep the league engaged with my franchise, both on and off the court. I also am very flexible and can always make time to play games.

    We promote an active community and prefer that our members check in on a nearly daily basis; do you anticipate any issues in being active on the forums and contributing to the league and the TSO community in general?
    As I mentioned earlier, I have the background and the passion to make this work. Gaming is, and will always be, an important part of my life.

    What is the general schedule when you would expect to be available to play league games?
    I cannot confirm where I am working this fall/winter, but I'm very flexible and can find time for a game morning/noon/night, whenever necessary.

    With the next generation of consoles on the horizon; do you foresee circumstances where you would stop playing NBA 2K14 on the PS3 in favor of one of the new consoles?
    I do expect to get a PS4 around Christmas time, but I will be keeping my PS3 for Grand Theft Auto V, and I have no issues playing 2k14 on the older system as well. Planning on using the PS4 for graphic-intensive games like Destiny and COD.

    What does “simulation” B-Ball mean to you?
    Simulation basketball to me is realism on the court and in the stat sheets after the games. That means varying shot selection, moving the ball around and not exploiting the game by mashing the steal button, full-court pressing 24/7 and other tactics which lead to unrealistic results. I'm not much of a play caller myself, so I don't think that's required as long as one is working the ball themselves for realistic looks. That means not exploiting weak transition D's by turboing past defenders on a regular basis.

    What is your favorite team? And is having them a deal breaker for you or are you willing to play with any team that is available?
    My favorite teams are the Pistons and Warriors. I would prefer to play with the Warriors (favorite player is Draymond Green, and Curry/Iggy are way too much fun), but I would happily play with the Pistons, if necessary.

    What does “simulation” B-Ball mean to you?

    Not taking advantage of the flaws of the game. I have no problem with teams that chooose a certain style of play like uptempo fast break or a team that depends heavily on the 3, as long as its not taking advantage of a flaw of the game.

    What is your favorite team? And is having them a deal breaker for you or are you willing to play with any team that is available?

    My favorite team is the Bucks but I will play with any team.

    I mean the game isn't out yet and I think a league like this would really get its legs more toward November-Dec, wouldn't scrap hope just yet

    CTfromDC maybe you should go on OS or something and try to recruit some people to come over here. We've got 7 signed up, I think 12 could make it work

    Why do you want to join the WAH B-Ball league?


    I like NBA but don't really have anyone to play it with. I like the franchise aspect and like sim gaming.

    Why would you be a good addition to the league?

    I like doing content and stay active on here every day.

    I'm pretty open right now.

    What does “simulation” B-Ball mean to you?

    Not really sure. I know much more about football than basketball. But, I hate when guys go to the same thing over and over and exploit obvious flaws in the AI.

    What is your favorite team? And is having them a deal breaker for you or are you willing to play with any team that is available?

    I'd like to play with the T-Wolves being from Minnesota originally but could possibly play with the Kings or Suns or any number of better teams.

    CTfromDC There seems to be a solid interest in doing this. We've got 7 signed up and several others have been tagged and suggested to do the same. 2K is a solid game to play the CPU in, so we don't need to completely fill with users. When you think about it, an NCAA OD generally has 25% games against users and 75% against the CPU during a season. Even if we only had 10 users in this, it would be a pretty similar ratio.

    You could add me to a wait list. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get a copy this year. Probably a few weeks after release.
