CBS Commission Auction Draft\format

Postby SecretAgentMan » Tue Feb 28, 2012 5:56 pm

Can anyone give me some insight into what you can setup in a CBS Commissioner auction draft? I want to effectively do a slow auction using the draft room (say give people hours to bid on a player). Barring that, can you suspend the auction online and pick k it up days later? Can that be setup? Usually we do in person auctions, but this year the owners are all being a pita and we can't agree on a date and time so it is either disband the league or do it online slowly or over multiple times.

The CBS Draft Options are as follows ==

Draft Type (Learn More)
Wait to select a draft type (return here at any time to select and configure your draft type)
Offline Draft (enter rosters manually)
Online Live Draft (Standard Draft Format)
Online Extended Live Draft (Standard Draft Format conducted over multiple days)
Online Live Auction Draft (Owners bid on players and highest bid is awarded player)
Automated Draft (Players will be automatically drafted based on owners' player ratings)

The extended Draft might be what you want. I am not sure of the length that it can be extended.
== You can always do it via email. Give everyone 24 hours for their pick. This whole thing sounds like a mess. You should try to get the guys together or else have them drop out.

we do extended drafts(not auctions) that take 10 days, I'd bet you could do 1/3 of it 1 day, suspend and so on. It doesn't cost you anything to find out, they are good about refunding if it doesn't work out.If the auction works the same at the snake it'll be fine
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post
