I think I’m in. I never seen the play button either. The link in email kept taking me to vbulliten page. So I closed it then clicked on link in OP. Then clicked something on that page and it took me to team name.

The "play" button is on the upper left side of the forum page.

I think it says 6 or 8 of 24 teams taken. What happens after 24 people? Another league starts?

Yes, and our leauge starts. You'll get some players assigned and the draft (where you can draft players better than Brock Oswieler) will start 24 hours after that.

Hmm, yeah, we need to make that more intuitive. We're a little worried that the two-step process isn't easy to follow, but we kind of need to do it that way.

After you register, you end up on a sandbox-themed page like this. You then go to the upper left to the "Play" button, as shown.

Honest question, is this something just for Chiefsplanet people, or is this something you will market and look to make a lot of money from?

The latter. It's our path to affluence.

You'll see on the site that the normal price will be $18. We're offering a kindness rate to Chiefsplanet because people helped us a lot with the game testing when it was in development.

Can I change my team name if I already selected it?

Unfortunately, no. Per the Game Manual...

Changing Team Name and City

What it is: Impossible.

When you can do it: Never.

Where it is: Maybe in some alternate univsere

We know, it's fun to re-name your team every week, but this isn't fantasy football. This is Sandbox football, where the teams are real (kind of) and the sport is serious. Your team and league is in it for the long haul, and if you change your name all the time it really screws with our databases, y'know what I mean?

When a new team is created, you can choose from a list of cities and teams, and that's it. That's the city, that's the team. Unless you're Art Modell, you can't recreate a team's identity.

Any chance you can do a screen shot? What are you seeing?

Apparently so. See if you can find a link that says "full site". Click on that and you will see the play button.

I like my team name but kind of rushed looking through the choices, so was just curious what I missed.

Let's go Phoenix Diablos!!!!!

I've got the receipt for Interplanetary Properties LLC, but the sandbox site invites me to register, and the email links take me to the V Bulletin board.
