Notes
This Achievement for winning an online Association can be done by yourself. I just made my Association private with a password so random people didn't join and screw me up.

I posted the minimum settings above but yea i did the whole association by myself with the Miami Heat on a 14 game season, 1 minute Quarters, and 1 game playoffs. Now i played all 14 games but i can confirm through my friends and other people that you can just simulate the 14 games.

I played all my games with the heat in a couple of hours but the league pace is ridiculously slow (it takes 6 hours to complete 1 in-game day) so i had to wait about 3 weeks for the league to complete all their games and playoffs to begin.

*****MOST IMPORTANT NOTE****PLAYOFFS***********************
The playoffs is where a lot of people get screwed over for this achievement.

** A risky option is If your losing in a playoff game pause the game, then pull out your Ethernet cable or shut off your modem a message will pop up that your disconnected from the server and it will boot you out to the menu and it acts like the game never happened so you replay the game. (this happened to me once when i lost internet at my house so try it at your own risk)


I played 1 game per round, but make sure when the playoffs start that you pay extreme attention to the schedule because if you don't your game might be simulated and you could be knocked out.

So for every round of the playoffs its 2 in game-days so you have play it within 12 hours to be safe or risk it being simulated.

Another thing the 2kservers have been having some problems lately so you could be hit with a "failure to communicate to server"
and this could screw you in the playoffs too because the timer is still going and it will sim the game. ( this happened to me in the Eastern Semi's but luckily the simulated game had me winning so i got to continue)

The best way to avoid this playoff issue is to make it a Best of 3 series it may take you a couple of days extra to get the achievement but its better then getting screwed because you cant get in to your association and have to start the 3 week process all over again.
