Re: AltLB Design Thread

We are very close to the AltLB Owner Draft. Expect it to be happening in the next couple of weeks. In preparation for that time we want to take a roll call for owners to make sure that you are still interested in owning a franchise. We have a number of current teams in the Alt Sports Universe that are unattended or minimal participation. We are looking to avoid that for the AltLB. We are only looking for owners who will be active in setting their lineups on a regular basis. 

Therefore, please PM me by next Wednesday 2/23 to lock in your position.

Re: AltLB Design Thread

And that's it! We have our AltLB! 

I wanted to thank everyone for their hard work on this project. We have only just begun the AltLB, but this has been the most aggressive undertaking that we have ever attempted. 

We have a few loose ends to tie up this week. A few color adjustments to be made but the uniforms that you see are all now available in the AltLB Store. 

From my post yesterday we are currently taking a roll call for the league. That roll call will conclude next Wednesday. On Thursday of next week we will have the ever famous Draft Lottery. At that point the draft order will be revealed. Then on Friday, February 25 we will begin the AltLB OWNER DRAFT.

After the draft is complete. There will be another draft; one that sorts the teams into their respective leagues.

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Amazing, I wish I could own most of those hats. The designers really knocked it out of the park (hehe). There's several teams I could see myself trying to go for in the draft, though I'd probably be happy with any of them

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Sorry guys, wok has been killing me. I have not had time to run stuff and my future is really busy. Unfortunately, I’ll have to pull out. Thank you guys for the opportunity, though.

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Now that we have our AltLB franchises fully outfitted we have one more matter to take care. During the design process the issue of color palette was brought to the table. One of our guiding rules has consistently been that uniform designers are not to add colors to the design put forth by the logo designer. 

However the nature of baseball design created a grey area of this rule. Traditionally colors such as cream (off white), grey and powder blue have been used as uniform colors even though they are not part of the teams official colors. During the uniform design round there were a few winning designs that utilized cream / off white colors for the home uniform. 

To honor both the spirit of our rules and the nature of baseball we are going to have one final vote. I want to thank DireBear for graciously adjusting the uniforms to give the community options. Today we will vote on both Boston and Arizona. The options are to keep the winning designs as is or to opt for the white option. Additionally, I am putting forth my Squirrels design and their two color options. Just after the submission for the Oakland we adjusted the logo for the Squirrels to eliminate the gold (to avoid the similarity with Cincy). So your options are Squirrel Grey or keep the gold to reference the Oakland flag (swapping yellow for gold of course). This will be a one day poll.

Just a reminder: 

WEDNESDAY - Deadline for owners to submit intention to play
THURSDAY - Owner Lottery + Draft Order
FRIDAY - Owner Draft Begins

Here's my Squirrels design with the gold that was submitted, and the option with silver swapped in for the gold.

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Squirrel Grey reminds me of Earl Grey tea for some reason, not sure if the reference was intentional or not, but I got a kick out of it in any case!  Can't wait to see the finals results, as I think all 3 of these choices are going to look good no matter what wins out!

Assuming that baseball happens sooner rather than later, I'm really excited for this!
