Welcome to NBA Restart 2020
Anyone that has played one of my sports tournaments before knows that I like to make the CC version resemble the real sport as much as possible. This tourney is designed to take us through an abbreviated NBA season. Play: 1 vs. 1
Due to the number of games this tourney will be available to premium players only.

It will be an abbreviated 13-game NBA regular season with the playoffs consisting of Best-of-3 series.
• Game play: Each coach will play an eight-man rotation (5 starters & 3 bench players) making each game an 8-map showdown. Each player will earn points based on a well-tested scoring formula I’ve conceived.
Win quickly and you will score a big advantage at your position. If the map is a tight battle, the scoring difference will be smaller.
Percentages drop sharply as the rounds advance and play is capped at 11 rounds to prevent running up the score.
* A 5-percent uptick is rewarded if you prevent your opponent from making a card turn in.
• Because I’m using a carefully developed scoring formula all maps are preset for each position.
Smaller maps are used for the bench players.
Settings will be flat, chained, foggy.
Rounds are based on the # of rounds reached in the game.
The scoring formula is based on troop accrual during the match.
If player 1 wins in the match (not allowing player 2 a turn in the final round) troops for that round will be reduced to 33%.
Field goals — troops based on regions occupied
Free throws — Territory bonuses + owned card bonuses
3-point shots — Card turn ins + any neutral conqueredExample for a starting SG
You gain 42 armies for regions held during the game, so 42/5 = 8.4 (8 FG attempts)
You gain 7 in bonuses + 4 in owned card bonuses, so 11/5 = 2.2 (2 FT attempts)
You turn in 14 in cards + conquer 4 neutral territories, so 18/5 = 3.6 (4 3P attempts)
I then take you shot attempts and run it through the shot chart for how many rounds the game went. • Who’s your star?
Each coach will be asked to choose a star player out of their starting-five…the formula allows this player to put up more shots in a typical game. So choosing the player on the map you are most confident with is the smart move.
(Point guard in the default if you don't designate a "star" player.)
I hope it doesn’t sound too confusing…in the end winning the most maps and winning quickly should end in success.
Good luck to all and let’s have some fun with it, flex
