    Let's try and get a jump on things and try to nail down the best time for us to do the offseason. Can someone get on the OA and see when game 7 of the finals will sim if it doesn't get played?

    I'm good any night during the week after about 8:30pm EST. I'd love if we could do it Tuesday or Thursday night.

    As long as we're there before Friday anytime after 9 EST works for me every night. I could probably do it a little earlier everyday but Monday as well.

    I'm good any time before the 24th then my nights are booked for 5 days. The 20-22 seems most logical since its the weekend.

    How long will it take? If stuff isn't on sim timers the redshirt guys will make sure it takes a minimum of 2 hours.

    It takes about an hour-hour and a half. Its extremely fast paced though. FA last like 15 days and you only get like 2 minutes to do each day.

    Yes. Knicks swept the finals. From what I can tell part 1* of the off season will start tonight around 7:30 eastern once this current day ends. That will last for 24 hours according to what someone said in the other thread. It's all timed too so the slow asses won't make it last a ridiculous amount of time like our NCAA ones do.





    Live Offseason
    Once your league has crowned its first champion, the offseason will be ready to get underway. The offseason consists of three periods of time. * In the first period, you will be able to view player retirements, view player progression, accept/decline team contract options, deal with your restricted free agents, etc. Here you are merely preparing for the second offseason period which is where all the action is.

    The second offseason period consists of the NBA Draft, Rookie Signing, and Free Agency. Due to the nature of these events, this is the ‘Live’ period of the offseason, where all users are required to be present at a pre-scheduled time to participate. In Public Associations, this will generally be scheduled to accommodate both east coast and west coast users alike. If you are ever unable to attend the Live Offseason event, we do offer you the ability to login prior to this event and setup a draft list that the CPU will use in your absence during the NBA Draft. Additionally, you can also provide a free agent target list that you would like the CPU to use during the live Free Agency period in your absence.

    NBA Draft: This event looks and feels like the draft found in the offline version of The Association. That is to say that David Stern and Adam Silver will both be on-hand to announce every pick that is made. Once it is your turn to pick, you will only have 90 seconds to make your selection. While other teams are drafting, you are able to review the available players list and prepare for your upcoming pick. The NBA Draft is a very tense and exciting event. Have a good time with it.

    Rookie Signing: This period is very simple and lasts only a couple minutes before moving on to the Free Agency period. As draft pick contracts are essentially slotted per the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, there isn’t any true negotiating here. It’s simply a matter of accepting the pre-determined contracts for the players you want on your team.

    Free Agency: The Free Agency period consists of 12 ‘days’, with each ‘day’ consisting of two parts. The first part of the day is when you will make your offers. Other players and CPU teams will be making real-time bids for players as well, so you’ll want to offer the maximum amount of money that makes sense for your team when bidding on players. The second part of each ‘day’ is where you can view the players who have accepted your offers. It is here where you will ‘confirm’ the signing to have a signed player join your team. This is very useful in that it affords you the ability to send out many offers to players when you can actually only afford to sign one or two of them. If multiple players accept your offer in the same day, you’ll be able to confirm which one(s) you actually accept onto your team.

    The third and final period of the offseason is where you will send your players to Training Camps, provided you have earned enough Reward Points during the season to do so. In the event that your roster does not yet have 12 players on it, you will also be able to sign leftover free agents to get your roster to the required minimum. Once you have completed these tasks, you simply need to sit back and wait for the next season to start, which will generally happen within a day or so (this varies based on the chosen ‘speed’ of your league).

    Advance is set for 2 days it looks like. That means it looks like a Tuesday night draft/FA period

    Do we schedule the offseason or is the time and date predetermined?

    So what happens if it advances at 3 in the morning?

    I am just going off this "Due to the nature of these events, this is the ‘Live’ period of the offseason, where all users are required to be present at a pre-scheduled time to participate."

    That's the 2nd part of the offseason which we won't even get to until like 8:30 on Tuesday. I think at that point it will let me schedule the draft.

    I thought that is what we were talking about.

    Is there any kind of group voice chat or anything during the off season like there is in NCAA?
