Just a thought I had: what if there were a league of laser tag teams? Now, to flesh that thought out a bit: This is a sixteen-team league, with two conferences, each consisting of two four-team divisions. The top two teams from each division make the playoffs (although the bonuses given to players and coaches differ between divisional winners and wild cards). The season consists of forty games, played on Saturdays only, typically one per week (winters are off, as that's the worst time to travel). Players and coaches are strongly encouraged to have other jobs, as nobody makes more than $40K in a season, and healthcare is very bare-bones. In short, this straddles the line between pro and semipro. It's a new startup, so it has to be this way at first, right? Contrary to what you might think, home-course/arena (I'm calling them courses) advantage plays a big role. The courses have different designs and obviously the home team knows its course better than the visitors do. That said, there are certain basic rules relating to course size and structure that all teams must follow. Rosters are eight men per team, but only five play at a time. No in-game substitutions may be made except in the unlikely event of an injury. Those with more experience playing laser tag than I can help iron out other rules. (While I've greatly enjoyed the game when I've played it, there are no facilities in my hometown so I have only played a few times.) League setup (names off the top of my head; feel free to claim a team, change its name and/or location, and submit designs for it): Eastern Conference: Southeast Division: Atlanta Agitators Miami Neons New Orleans Turtles Charlotte Eels Nashville Twang Northeast Division: Columbus Cobras New York Volt Hartford Stags Boston Beams Detroit Electrons Western Conference: Northwest Division: Portland Thorns Denver Peaks Boise Beavers San Francisco Shockers Casper Frighteners Southwest Division: Los Angeles Jedis Phoenix Scorpions Las Vegas Rollers Santa Fe Rattlers Houston Explosion
Hey guys! I think I have a great idea, and i want all of you to be apart of it. I want this to be fun and enjoyable for everyone who participates. I have come up with a fictional basketball league called the "United States Premier Basketball League" or "USPBL" for short. Yes i know there are a lot of these but i wanted to try my hand at it with suggestions from all of you.There are 12 cities, 6 teams, 2 conferences and i want you guys to submit nicknames for these cities. I'm still working on the backstory for this league but i want to start getting you guy's suggestions ASAP. The 12 cities i chose were (I have already chosen their conferences) ; Albuquerque, New Mexico- WESTNorfolk, Virgina - EASTBoise, Idaho - WESTTucson, Arizona - WESTEl Paso, Texas - WESTOmaha, Nebraska - WESTAustin, Texas - EASTBirmingham, Alabama - EASTLas Vegas, Nevada - WESTLouisville, Kentucky - EASTLittle Rock, Arkansas - EASTDaytona Beach, Florida - EAST The logo for the league is pictured below. The first thing that will probably be noticed is the obvious nod to the United States with the (Red, White, Blue) color scheme. The next thing is the 6 stars in the Blue "U" and 6 stripes in the Red "S", those represent the 6 teams in each conference and there respective color (NBA esque) and last would be the black background it just made it pop for me. I kept it simple and didn't want to over do it. I'm looking forward to everyone's participation and input.Thanks for looking (Borrowed a basketball design just as a test) Edit: i do plan to make logos and uniforms EDIT 2: Voting closed: thanks to everyone who participated your choices for these teams after voting are as followed; Albuquerque - Desert Dogs Norfolk- Captains Boise- Thunderbirds Tucson- Saguaros El Paso- Stars Omaha- Stampede Austin- Outlaws Birmingham- Vipers Las Vegas- Aces (changed to "Silver Aces" because "Aces" was too plain) Louisville- Riders and of course i chose the Little Rock and Daytona team names again a big thanks for your votes these concepts will be a lot of fun (Moved From page 3)
