TMBL United - Player Names
Posted by Allan Sellers on Sunday, Apr. 7th, 2013 at 4:12 PM

The new simulator will not use Major League Baseball player names.

Do you guys want some ability to name players yourselves or just let the game generate player names as in MSWL United?

A few stipulations...I'd rather not see names like (yes, I'm talking to you Ian):

Phil McIntosh

Phil McIntosh Jr.

Phil McIntosh III

Phil McIntosh IV

...and so on

Since we are going with 'fictional' players I'd prefer not to see everyone trying to name a player Babe Ruth or something like that...and I can add in "duplicate name checks"...but again that's extra work that I don't need.

I'm sort of talking myself into just creating player names as in the soccer league.  But can someone talk me down on that?  ;)

Maybe we could meet 'halfway' and have names created randomly but allow managers to change the first or last name (again I'd need to check for dupes still I think).   

Please throw in some thoughts...

Thanks,

Al

some sort of option on player naming would be nice but i appreciate we need to go with what makes your life easier. so whatever you decide is fine by me.

do we want to see a play that sees Clark Kent pitching a fastball to Albert Einstein who hits it to Bugs Bunney in left field?

My personal preference is to name my own players as it gives you a greater level of  ownership of the team and allows some creativity that you don't get with the generated names.

But I appreciate the problems with duplicate names and am not overly concerned  if we went with all generated players.

This situation would not worry me  "Clark Kent pitching a fastball to Albert Einstein who hits it to Bugs Bunney in left field?"  although why Bugs Bunny is playing out of position I just don't know, he would clearly play at Short Hop. (sorry!)

I prefer the auto-generated names... we're going to have a couple dozen players on the team every season. Folks are going to run out of names really quickly. I think having auto-generated names would foster trading too - you don't have a personal tie to the player name, just the coaching you put into him. So, if you see a deal for a SP out there and Kevin wants your up and coming 3b in return, you won't be held to keep "David Wright" because he's your favorite player, you'll see the deal that can help your team and do it.

James don't know Bugs Bunny.  He plays EVERYWHERE!
