Just an update from bball.tf. We are very excited with the new site that llamadillo has graciously spent his time working on! We are working on filling out the site, but the league format is all set up and ready for signups! In addition to this, Exile has put out an amazing new map to play on that is going up on the servers today. Everything is coming together quite nicely and I hope we will be able to bring the community together even further with the addition of these features, especially the new league. We are also aiming at training new players into bball with the tutorial videos currently on the site and in the works. There will be separate divisions just like the tournaments have been before this and possibly adding more depending on signups. As for more details on the rules and process of the league.

  • Maximum of 3 people on a roster
  • Opponents are assigned on Sundays while the match is completed until the following Sunday.
  • Matches for the week will be a best of 3 and all scores will be reported on the website under your team.
  • There is no scheduled match time--Each week you will schedule your match when it is suitable for you both.
  • Each game will go to 25 or time limit of 20 minutes, whichever comes first.
  • Respawns will be 2 seconds and there is no sitting on the rim.

Now for some things that we are working on/would like to do in the future

  • Player stats specific to bball integrated into the website
  • Voting and organization for frag videos on the site
  • Integrated pickup games on the website
  • Valve supported medal for winners of the league

This new website is a huge step into what we would love to accomplish with TF2 bball and would love any and all suggestions to make it better for everyone!

It's really great to see bball gaining traction and going somewhere, very excited to see how this goes.

If only my old teammate, Gibus Eugene Malone, were still with us today. I still remember the last thing he said to me before he passed onward: "Let me hit it from the back girl, I won't catch a hernia. Bust off on your couch, now you got Seaman's Furniture."

You have to receive a link to the team from the person who's inviting you.
You will be able to view a list of teams entered into the season when it begins.

If he navigates to the league page and clicks the team name, that will take him to the team's page.

Also, I believe this is the page you are looking for?
http://www.bball.tf/team.php?teamid=15

Love bball, but think I'll stick to the pub server. Didn't have a pleasant experience in the recent cup (with the players, not organisers).

EDIT: can't seem to use the original on bball.tf germany

OasisIs there going to be streams or casting for grandmaster games/matches?

Yes, we're planning on streaming the playoffs this season. We are thinking about doing a match of the week as well.

The signups are going great so far. 20 US and 20 EU teams so far have signed up. Rainman and ool have both created videos to promote the inaugural season. Let's keep the signups going!

Teams must now enter themselves into their bracket through their team page.
The owner of the team must do this. If you made a team, left it and rejoined, unfortunately you can't do this. Please either message me your steam id or create a new team.
A team list will be variable from tomorrow.

Thanks for the signups!
We've got about 100 teams so far, let's see how far we can go!

dumb question, but this only applies to your own rim correct?

Lots of people have been asking for a teams list.
Here is the list of teams that are currently readied.

Apologies for the random gaps and poor formatting, I made it fast and teams that signed up and then folded are still listed as blank spaces.

The beginning of the season is only 2 days away! Right now we have 59/111 teams readied up for the new season. If you haven't done so please do! Just go to your team page and click the ready button. This is how we will place you into matches on your team page.

Because of the large amount of signups in Europe, We have added servers in London, Paris, and Amsterdam thanks to George. Hopefully this will be better for ping and for the matches that you have each week.

Signups are still open until tomorrow!
