Default Group Break Basketball Association. Season 1, Break 2

Group Break Basketball Association

The Rundown
• The Group Break Basketball Association! There will be 30 slots, 1 slot for each NBA team. There are 10 regular season breaks using the “GBFL” point system, which I’ll show a little bit later. Each break is a random team break and there’s a random done for each break, so you don’t keep the same team throughout the breaks. After the regular season, there’s one playoff round featuring the four highest scorers going head to head and then a Championship game with the 2 winners in the 11th month.

Finances
• $10.50 per slot to cover bulk supplies at the beginning of the season.
• $21 per month per slot for cards for a total of around $600 per month (after paypal fees).
• An additional $2 per month per slot goes towards the Championship game.


GBFL Point System
What the cards are worth in points

Hit Values
• Jersey hit – 1pt
• Patch hit – 2pts
• Auto hit (Includes manufactured patch autos) – 3pts
• Jersey/Auto – 4pts
• Patch/Auto – 5pts

Serial # Values
• Anything over /100, inserts, rookies, parallels - .1 pts
• Anything between /100 to /51 – 1pt
• Anything between /50 to /26 – 2pts
• Anything between /25 to /11 – 3pts
• Anything between /10 to /6 – 4pts
• Anything between /5 to /2 – 5pts
• 1/1 – 10pts

Values are added too, so if you hit a patch numbered to /99, you would get the 2pts for the patch and the 1pt for the serial numbering.

The Regular Season
• The regular season runs strictly on point accumulation. So, there are no head to head games, just points. You get all the cards from your randomized team in the break, Plus 1st place gets to pick the products for the next month’s break, so there’s incentive to winning. The regular season will last 10 months and feature 10 breaks. There will be a different randomization done for each break. Also, points from different slots won’t be combined, so if you buy 2 slots, they’ll be run as separate slots. The winner of the last regular season month will pick the products for the playoff round. The GBBA will need at least a 11 month commitment from participants, so we don’t have people dropping out halfway through if they fall too far behind or something of that nature. At the end of the regular season, the top 4 points getters from the regular season will meet in head to head matchups in the playoffs. Which takes us to:

GBBA Playoffs
• In the playoffs, the top 4 scorers from the regular season will meet in head to head matchups. The #1 in points vs. #4 and #2 vs. #3. The 4 playoff teams will get to draft their teams for this break with #1 drafting 1st, 2 drafting 2nd and so on. The remaining 26 teams after the draft will be randomized among the remaining 26 participants. So, the playoff round will be a group break for everyone but only the 4 playoff teams have a shot at the championship matchup. The 2 winners from the head to head matchups will go on the GBBA Championship.

GBBA Championship
• By my calculations, there will be around $600 to spend on product for the championship. The player with the most points scored in the head to head playoffs round will get to pick the products for the championship break and will get to choose between drafting the Eastern Conference or Western Conference. The championship break is only between the 2 winners from the playoff round. The winner will be whoever has the most points. Of course, to the victor goes the spoils, which include:

1. All cards he hit in the Championship.
2. His pick of one card from the loser’s hits
3. His slot costs will be factored into the next season’s finances, so his slot will be FREE for the next season.




A few additional things

1. If you commit to the group and drop out once it has started, negative itrader feedback will be left unless someone else takes your slot.

2. If someone drops out and no one takes their place, that slot will be "absorbed" by the rest of the league, meaning that slot cost will be divided amongst the remaining members and any hits from that slot will be randomized between participants. Any cards coming from an "absorbed" slot will not count towards your point total.

3. Shipping will be calculated after each break. You will have to let me know if you want your items shipped, if I do not hear one way or the other from you, I will hold your cards here. Do not fret, I have boxes specifically for holding Group Break League cards.

*30/30 Slots Paid*

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

- Cards featuring players in college uniforms (Press Pass, Sage, 2010 and onward Upper Deck) will go to the team the player spent the most seasons with. So for instance Scottie Pippen would be a Bull, Patrick Ewing would be a Knick and so on. In the case of tie, a random will be done between those teams.

- Cards will go to the team that is listed on the card.

- Cards featuring multiple players will be randomed off between the teams on the card.

- All randoms will be done by a mod using random.org.

- Break will be broadcast live on Ustream and also recorded for viewing on Ustream.

- Shipping costs are not factored in to slot cost.

- It is up to you to let me know if you want your cards shipped. If you don't let me know, then I'll assume you want me to hold your cards until the next break. I would also appreciate you letting me know whether you want your base or not.

$10.50 per slot to cover bulk supplies at the beginning of the season.


Excuse my ignorance. I'm a little confuse by this. The way its worded, I thought this was a one time fee. Is this fee going to be added to every month. Also give me the total for the next 5 months and I will pay by the 13th. thanks

I may need you to. I don't want to give myomni's slot up if something happened to him. I'll see if I can get in touch with him.
