Last year Cap N Saveho and I did a small NBA fantasy league for a small sum of cash with our family and friends. Some of our friends weren't super into basketball to begin with and the league got sloppy about midway through. Cap and I were wondering if there's any big NBA fans in the guild that might want to be a part of a fantasy league for this coming season and maybe put some ESO gold into the pot to make it interesting? Like a 20k buy-in second place gets their gold back type of deal lol. Let me know and I'll start getting it set up of we can get a decent group together! RHIINOMIITE I'm looking at you

Haha I'm not sure about 100k but I was thinking at least like a 20k buy in. With like 8 people we would have a nice pot of 160k and then do second place gets their gold back. Lol unfortunately we only have like 3 people interested right now and the deadline for making the fantasy league is quickly approaching lol. I'll set it all up but we need like four more people.
- SoCo - Cap N Saveho - Rhinomite - Vundah
That's who would potentially be down for it right now. If we can get four more people I will make the league

Lies Del, you can set your roster up weeks in advance. So you won't have to get on every single day, just if one of your guys gets hurt throughout the week you will have to change the lineups. But I meant to tell you that last year Del that you can go ahead of the schedule and setup your lineups for each day and it will automatically change the lineups depending on how you've adjusted them. Technically on Mondays you could set your lineup for the entire week or even further. So it's not too bad, and the app for the ESPN fantasy stuff is pretty easy to use

Would love to get three more basketball fans to join us! I will set the league up and everything like I said, but I'm not bothering until I know we have at least 8 people participating lol so with Del and Vundah that makes 5 total people. Let anyone else know that talks in chat if you hear them discussing basketball haha

YES it is definitely something I would like to do still! Right now we've got six people I believe who will participate with possibly a seventh;
- SoCo - Cap N Saveho - RhiinoMiite - VundahCarr - Delmerik - Ghost Warior - (Possibly xiArduouss)
So if we can find just ONE more guildie as long as Arduouss is still interested we should be good to go and I can set a date for the actual fantasy draft to take place I will update this thread tonight because I'm going to basically force Ghost to participate haha and hopefully find one more guy to join us!
He's the format I was thinking for the betting. Just make it simple;
- 20,000g buy-in before the draft (probably collect it all right before or after the draft happens) - Second place gets their gold back - First place takes the pot (140,000g)
It's a super easy scoring system that ESPN uses for their NBA fantasy leagues. They have a very user friendly app as well that you can use to set your lineups weeks in advance (assuming none of your players get injured throughout the course of the season). I will give you guys the details once/if we can get our last couple participants!
