FAST BREAK BASKETBALL 2001
(released October 2000)
What puts Fast Break apart from the
rest is the many unique features. Below is an example of some great
features that Fast Break has to offer.
Multiple Options for starting a new league
Fictional players with full league draft creation: This option allows for a draft made up entirely of fictional players.
This allows for a more challenging atmosphere since you don't have
popular names to set players apart from each other. A great option
for someone looking for a little extra difficulty.
Real players with full league draft creation: Here Fast Break allows for real names with full draft creation.
This gives you that extra edge of knowing that some people may perform
better than other and not having to judge everything strictly on
Real players with default rosters: Take any team to the top. If you would rather skip the draft then
this is the option for you.
Fast Break gives you the ability
to change team or player info throughout the default league. This
can be done with the detailed Default League Editor in the Tools
Full team and player statistics
Fast Break keeps record of every major statistic category for both
players and teams. Each players statistics are saved by year and
can be viewed at any time. Any awards that players have won over
the years are also saved and can be viewed at any time. Team statistics
can be viewed at any time during each season. Team statistics are
not saved for every year, however, records in all major categories
are saved over the seasons.
Unique team finances
The Fast Break financial philosophy is simple. Team owners are rich
enough to spend whatever they want to barring league rules. There
are salary cap rules that must be abided by but beyond that you
are free to go hog wild. Whatever your team's cap can handle you
can bust it. But always be weary of your spending habits, for you
may still run into a little financial trouble with no cap room to
get more talent.
Great trade AI
No simulation game is complete without the ability to trade. Fast
Break trade intelligence has been thoroughly tested to near perfection.
The trade artificial intelligence is rough to get around bust rest
assured it is still possible to trade for anyone. But you better
be willing to give what it takes. Fast Break gives you the ability
to trade your draft picks up to three years in advance which opens
up so many more possibilities for trading.
Hall of fame
Only the greatest players are good enough to be inducted into the
hall of fame. Fast Break keeps a record of all players inducted
into the Hall. From there you have the ability to view any awards
won by each player over the course of their career, the year they
were inducted into the Hall, as well as the ability to view each
players statistics for every year of their illustrious career.
In depth free agency
Fast Break features an in depth free agency period. You can use
low and mid exception when you're out of cap room. This is a great way to get some
quick talent for your team. Watch out though, those computer teams
tend to fancy the same players you do.
Everybody loves the All-star weekend. This is one of the most unique
features of Fast Break. The All-star weekend encompasses the Rookie
all-star game, the 3-point shootout, the Slam Dunk contest, and
the All-star game. It's a wonderful thing to see your star shooting
guard tear it up in the 3-point shootout.
