Since it doesn't look like our big sports leagues are getting back to playing any time soon, I thought we would simulate them here on CC. First up is the NBA.
With about 64-67 games played out of an 82 game schedule, the NBA playoff picture starting to take shape before the season was suspended in early March. Four teams had already locked in their playoff berths (Milwaukee, Boston, Toronto, and the Lakers) and there were some decent gaps between the 8th place team and the rest of the field vying for those playoff spots. So, while some of the seeding might have changed over the last month of the season, the teams in the tournament probably wouldn't have changed much.
So here's the tournament. All games are 1v1, Automatic, Sequential, Escalating, Chained, Fog, Trench, 30 Round Limit. Each "series" will consist of 7 games (premium only), the higher seeded team getting the extra home game. You will need to win 4 to advance.
When signing up, I just need to know what map you want to use as your Home Court.
Once the sign-ups are complete, I will seed all players by their score at the time of the tournament starting and assign them to a team. Highest player score = team with the best record. Lowest player score = team with worst record.
