    Draft Game 2016 v1

    Post by SI on Wed Jan 06, 2016 3:56 pm

    FINALISING RULES WITH 30 MINUTES TO GO, IF I MISS ANYTHING LET ME KNOW PLEASE.

    -snake draft
    -2016 NRL squads
    -17 players plus a coach that can be selected at any time
    -12 hours for picks, but no amnesty, so when the person before you has picked, your 12 hours starts
    -you can forward ranked picks to myself or someone else to pick for you if you feel you may may miss a pick window
    -if you do miss a pick window, you receive a player from the Pool of Tools
    -once a pick is made it remains
    -Draft Order is:

    Krumpy
    Welshy
    Bren
    Beast
    qs
    Standard
    Random


    -Pool of Tools:


    Jono Wright
    Rory Kostjaysn
    Tim Moltzen
    Luke Kelly



    INITIAL POST:
    Okey Cokey.  We've had a couple of Trade and Auction games over the last year.  Do we have takers for a Draft Game?  


    I will run it (starting threads and maintaining the draft order/picks/taking pre-picks etc).  If we go ahead I would not start it till mid next week. Basic rules and up for discussion as a framework:


    -Snake Draft
    -6 or 12 hours per pick (agree by consensus)
    -Draft order via a method that everyone agrees with
    -17 man squad (interest seems to wane trying to collect the scraps to get to 25)
    -Votes on best squad collated at the end, leading to:


    ...drum roll...


    The inaugural Fanatics Draft Champion being named.*










































































    *probably named a cheat, a cunt etc, but still named  Very Happy

    Sweet.  That's 3.

    For those who haven't done a draft before, it's the least time consuming.  Basically you pick 1 player and then wait for everyone else in turn.  At the start they move fast but you have a 6-12 hour window and you DON'T have to be constantly checking in, as you can forward a list of ranked picks and we will make them an auto pick for you.

    I would volunteer to play but if it even looks like I'm contemplating passing gas I get suspended. 

    Probably not ideal for a game where you need to be online every day.

    You could always do a large list of ranked picks just in case.

    Or heterosexual males aged between 25-49 on a rugby league forum can not act like 'Mean Girls'?

    I think the large list of ranked picks would be more feasible.

    It's a possibility that you get 1st pick.

    I was making a joke about your age.

    They say that being able to take a joke is the first thing to go, once old age hits
