Draft Order

Postby chris8 » Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:01 am

kaiser is going to sort out the random draft order for us at some point this evening. As it will likely be after midnight UK time, chances are we won't have it published until tomorrow.

Ahh man. I hate picking in the last couple picks and got it 2 years in a row in this league now~ Turned it into 3rd place in the noobs league last year so it isn't the end of the world I guess but if I get last or 2nd to last next year I'll go all conspiracy theory on the league!

Hey ender...you'll be fine picking last...I had the #2 pick in the noob league last year so now my strategy changes a lot. On the plus side at least we got promoted. :)

Promoted!!!


I am not a fan of the middle in this draft, I would rather something near one end or the other where 2 picks can be somewhat structured.

I prefer to be 3 or 4 spots off an end so I can let players drop for value and still likely get them when they come around.

However in this draft specifically the ends are torture because with 14 teams and up to 12 hours between picks you can go a week or more between picks at times and you lose all focus on things.

At the 14 spot in the 14 team 2nd mock here at the Cafe, I've made my 2 picks at the turn about every 2-3 days, so a day a day and a half per pick.

Yeah could be. We had a couple owners last year in the n00bs league that really slowed things down and it was just painful picking on the end.

Yup, I remember that. Hey everybody, don't forget that PM'ing the next one up in the draft is the responsible thing to do!
