Only one game was played. If it was just two or three people, I would sim past their games, but we're talking about the entire league. If the entire league's a problem in week 2, what will change in week 3?

The server has been troublesome, but it's supposed to be fixed now. I sent everybody a message to get their week 2 games in ASAP.

Younggrease, maybe one or both of you needs to delete your online settings file? That was the solution to a problem I once had, but I don't know if it will help you.

In general I'm pretty dissapointed with our league - it's not at all what I had hoped for. Nobody plays their games, nobody posts at our message board, nobody proposes trades. How can we inject some life into this thing? Hopefully this is just the week 2 curse, and we'll be able to pick up some momentum over the next couple days.

Konex, thanks for resetting it for them. I want to know how to do that too in case you aren't around next time it happens, so let me know.

Glad to hear that games are being attempted!

I've still got Kirilenko and Curry on the trading block. Looking for a shooting/scoring SF and a quick C.

Ok guys, I couldn't find any option to simulate games. I had to choose a winner and loser for each matchup. Not an easy decision to make, because I think EVERYBODY SHOULD LOSE!!!!!!!

rizzzay vs toneloc103 - toneloc wins for having posted on the 2k message board.

wichmae vs zombles - neither have posted in this thread this week or at the 2k message board. Tough call, but zombles wins for being an ISH member.

djphan vs cloud2k - Both have been posting at the message board, but Konex is admin, so I gave him the win.

donutking420 vs younggrease42 - Neither have posted at 2k, both have posted in this thread. I don't know. I'm literally going to flip a coin. Ok I really flipped it, screwston wins.

Lakersbob vs stunnarhombeus - Bob has posted at 2k, so he gets the win.

SoulMattic vs DBlock - Soulmattic has posted here and at 2k.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are now in week 3

Guys don't make me do this again. I want a basketball league, not the babysitter's club. We have 5 days for week 3, and I won't count today, so that means Wednesday is the last day. Don't wait - message your opponent today. Message them right now! Tell your opponent when you're available and see if you can adjust to when they're available.

Post at the 2k message board.

Propose trades to try and make your team better.

I really don't want to cancel the league, but I will if we get another week like this one.

PS - Konex I got your message the other day - I'm not particlarly interested, but I'm happy to help you out if you're short a man.

Nah, we're totally SIM so we don't let in just anyone :p

PS: I sent you an invite via the 2ksite before I read this...

Only reason I'm not thrilled to do it is because of the team it is. The league looks cool in general.

This league sounds like a failure. Hopefully Season 2 is better.

My advice? Get more established posters to play. Ones that visit the board every day.

Most of these dudes in the league I've never heard of.

Carbine that's good advice, but not a lot of regulars were interested. Kwajo's xbox got stolen, and Geewiz can't figure out how to play. I didn't turn anybody away except for you, and that's only because the league was already full by the time you said you wanted in.

Are you still interested in joining? A have a good feeling I'll have to boot somebody if week 3 goes like this.

Click the box score, scroll down and click "edit game result"

Also, I was going to go thru and adjust the Home/Away balance for all teams but I'm not going through that hassle if no one's playing. If week 3 goes smoothly, I'll do it...

You hate the Pistons or something? It'd be a great chance to get to know everyone's styles and trends for seaosn 2. Think about it before I fill the spot :)


PS: The stats are going to be showing up on the websites next week
