    Driveball Redux (1958 Offseason)

    Name: Bruce O'Shea Age: 31 In favor of no rule changes--currently there is a good mix of defensive and offensive games and it should stay that way. Tepid on a tour of UK and Ireland--it would be expensive, there's no proven appetite for driveball outside the US, and it's hard to imagine it leading to teams there for decades, if ever. Strongly opposed to developmental leagues--the college level of the sport should be allowed to develop and become the main source of talent.
  2. The Blackbirds look is by far the best one you have so far. It feels a little atypical for the time, so I don't feel like I'm just looking at an American logo, but it's also not crazy modern looking so I don't feel like it breaks the story. I love the mismatch of name and color; one, it looks great, but two, it incorporates the "shady but glitzy" mood you're clearly going for in Moriga into the look. Loving it--more so than the others, this one really feels like the logo tells a story. 12/10, A++
  3. I do love these designs, the roundels in particular are very well executed. The idea of doing a totally fictional world, instead of a totally fictional sport, is really cool too and I look forward to seeing it evolve. I do have a criticism however. So far, these identities feel a bit... typical? Right now it seems like every team is just going to have a local animal as its name. I'd love to see in the coming identities maybe some people-at-work kinda names, references to more abstract elements of a city, and maybe even elements of the cityscape getting mixed into the logos. Right now I feel like the descriptions are making the city's come alive, but the logo isn't really reflecting it. If part of what you're doing is telling the story of Torland through its baseball league, I think having the visual elements of the series really reflect Torland would be really helpful to the series. I don't really know what that would be, because it's not my world. Also, a question: which city is the capital, and is it large like the Londons of the world or smaller like the Washingtons and Ottawas?
  4. Definitely loving separating the teams out by bullet point. Makes everything much easier to follow, especially at a glance.
  5. I think it's gonna be really tough if we're monitoring all the markball leagues worldwide, especially since you've talked about the idea of there being a world cup, which I assume means a really popular game in many countries. It creates a lot more work for you, especially since you sim every game. I think it would be interesting to get periodic updates on events in the global game but really following it all is a lot to chew, so I'd be careful of biting it off.

    The washington commanders jerseys are a dramatic improvement. They really do look very good now and are among the best jerseys in the league

    Does the NDA have no reserve clauses?

    Neo, was that supposed to be a look into the future? Is the story timeline still in 1953 or have we bumped ahead? Is there actually going to be a thirty second shot clock for the first CDA season or is that also in the future?

    I'd like to see some more white involved in the home jersey for Washington; I think the logo makes it kinda clear that white is one of their colors and I find it weird to see the home uniform just being blue with a bit of red. The LA ones in particular look amazing though

    The Dragon's tongue feels very weirdly prominent to me. I like the rest of it and I really love the decision to use an eastern dragon instead of a western one.

    That W shield is amazing. The name is pretty decent too, especially as it kinda bridges the gap between the Senators being government oriented and the Redskins name being more "braves on the warpath" style.

    Kansas City in particular looks a lot better; it's also much more clear that those are his ears. Plus it gives the logo a little more edge, so it's more clear that it's a sports logo than just a generic logo.

    I'm not sure I can put my finger on why, but it feels like Kansas City's logo is a bit flat compared to the others, without being much simpler. Is there a way to add some depth to the steer? New Jersey's feels really simple next to New York--maybe make them intertwine and add some frills? I'm sorry not to be more positive, but next to the other great logos you've done so far, these just don't quite meet the same standard (though you've set the bar for yourself very high)
  14. A team in Washington acquiring a generational prospect? I'm sure the team won't have any trouble quickly converting that into a title!

    I really love Detroit's logo too, and name. Feels very fitting. But if I may, I don't think the rival league should be called Major League Driveball. After all, the National and American Leagues of baseball are at this point still nearly separate entities, with much more power in the hands of their respective presidents than the commissioner. Football also has had upstart AFLs, though none successful yet. Considering how great your historical immersion has been so far (and really, it's been arguably the best part of this series, great job on it) it feels very jarring to see what I would consider an anachronism. Major league X wouldn't refer to a single league sport in North America until MLS, decades after our setting. I would suggest the rival league be called either the American Driveball Association or the Continental Driveball Association (or Alliance).
