Triforcemaster3 Posted September 24, 2016 Share Posted September 24, 2016 (edited) Welcome to the brand new home of the gaming world's longest running role-playing game, the Nintendo Baseball League! For those of you who do not know me, hello. My name is Triforcemaster3. As my name suggests I am a huge Legend of Zelda fan and a fan of everything Nintendo, and have been since my mother bought me an SNES back in 1992. I was only 5 then. 12 years later I created this RP, and from our launch in 2004 we have stayed strong through the years, connecting Nintendo fans and sports fans from across the US and internationally too. Founded in 2004 on the original Nsider site, the Nintendo Baseball League, or NBL for short, is a league in which the people of Nsider2 act as baseball managers and GMs. The players on the teams are video game characters from the various games and franchises, mostly Nintendo first-party franchises but some are third-party as well. The people battle their teams on the field against one another by creating their rosters via trades, free agency, and drafting, as well as making daily coaching decisions about whom to play. Joining the Nintendo Baseball League is simple. If you would like to join, simply pick a team below! You can also join by PM'ing Triforcemaster3. I'll respond with that team's roster and team performance breakdown. There are a total of 82 teams in the NBL, arranged into 3 tiers, similar to MLB, AAA, and AA. Nintendo Baseball Premier League - 32 teams - the top division, akin to MLB Nintendo Baseball Championship League - 32 teams - the middle division, akin to AAA Nintendo Baseball Reserve League - 18 teams - the lower division, akin to AA One aspect of the NBL that is very different from the MLB and minor leagues...teams have the ability to go up (promotion) or down (relegation) the three tiers based on performance. In that sense the NBL works in a similar manner to the English Premier League and other top European soccer leagues.

The first series of the week is played Sunday through Tuesday, the second series from Wednesday through Friday, with Saturday being the designated off day (although sometimes makeups and other competitions are played on Saturday). NBL games typically start between 9pm & 9:30pm Eastern, 6pm & 6:30pm Pacific, and last roughly 45 minutes to an hour. There are 3 types of games in the NBL: A.3 updates & final score - This is the most common game, and is like using the full simulator in a sports video game. In these games I give score updates at the end of the 3rd, 5th, and 7th innings, and then a final score at the end. These are games in which you can use little coaching posts to try to nudge your team on to victory, but too much detail is counterproductive. B.Quick final score - This game, which is utilized when very few managers are around at game time or when I'm very busy, is one in which game outcomes are based mostly on pre-game coaching as no scores are given in-game. This is like hitting the quick sim button in a sports video game. C.National TV Gamecasts - This game, which is the least common, actually goes through each inning, and each at bat, and records the outcome of each. This game type is like playing the actual game yourself in a sports video game, and is usually a "game of the week" situation during the regular season, usually played on Sunday nights (though sometimes on Tuesdays or Thursdays as well). It is also used a lot in the postseason and in special tournaments like the C-stick Cup or Video Game World Baseball Classic. Here, you can make coaching decisions on who to bat in certain situations after each inning, and/or take players out if they aren't playing well early. There's a lot more lattitude in a gamecast game for the manager to rule their own destiny. Winning games in the NBL is a partly an art form, and part science. We've seen the quietest of managers win championships, the most brash have won too. We've had old school gamers win, we've seen new school gamers win. We've had people from Rhode Island, Illinois, California, Texas, Michigan, Colorado, Florida, Ohio, and even from overseas win our RP. We are even free of gender bias as women managers have won championships too. This is an RP that is all inclusive, and a ton of fun. We'd love to have you! List of NBL Competitions: Nintendo Baseball League - This is your typical MLB-style regular season. Unlike MLB, in the NBL we play a split season format, with two champions crowned annually. The spring (Apertura) season begins February and concludes with the playoffs in June. The fall (Clausura) season starts in August and concludes with the playoffs in December. The C-stick Cup - This event started in 2013, and is similar to that of the NCAA basketball tournament, or for those that know soccer, the English FA Cup. Each major and minor league team is placed in a single elimination bracket and the sole survivor wins the trophy. This is a competition that is played intermittently within the normal NBL spring and fall seasons. Satoru Iwata Memorial Power Glove Championship - This event was started by Xanderthegreat in 2014 as a memorial to the late Satoru Iwata. This event merges rosters between major and minor league clubs within the same organization, and organizations battle to determine a champion. This event typically takes place in late January and early February. Video Game World Baseball Classic - This event was started in 2013, and pits the best teams from the Nintendo Baseball League against the top teams from the two rival leagues representing Microsoft and Sony. Nintendo teams qualify for this event by winning the Miyamoto or Yamauchi League in either the fall or spring season preceding the tournament, or by winning the C-stick Cup. The VGWBC is played in July/August of each year. Allied Competitions: The Nintendo World Cup / Confederations Cup - This was a competition started in 2014, and is a soccer/association football competition. Teams play a regular season of matches, usually somewhere between 14 and 20 matches total. At the conclusion of the qualifying season, the best teams will qualify for the final tournament. The World Cup is played every 2 years in even numbered years, the Confederations Cup is played in the odd years. The Nintendo Olympiad - This was a competition started by DonkeykongX in 2008, and takes place every 2 years. This is a showcase in which the players contest Olympic events and battle to win gold. The Toadstool Sports Spectacular - This competition was started by Fuzzer1 in 2016, and takes place annually. This is a showcase of the various Mario sports games plus Super Smash Brothers, in which the players of the NBL qualify for and then battle through the various sports until both an individual and a team champion is crowned. This event is played in the fall of each year. Edited February 29, 2020 by Triforcemaster3 Quote Link to comment
