    For those of us who didn't do the last 2, what does it mean to be a GM and what do the judges do?

    I'd be interested in being a judge I think. :D

    Hopefully your commissioning isn't as flexible as Sark's loyalties.

    doesn't emperor windu get the #2 spot? Or are you changing the rule that winner AND runner up get #1, and #2, respectively?

    The runner up gets to cry because he got so close to winning it all, then failed miserably in front of millions of people. He basically choked when it counted most. Thats what the runner up gets. There is no second place, just the best loser.

    Normally we let our fan force members have an exclusive chance to sign up within the first 48 hours, and then afterwards we let outsiders sign up. but that was with moron as a commish, i'm not entirely sure how Petra will run the show.

    Also, being as you were a champion of that 'other' draft, keep in mind the first line of your sig. Lots of differences between the 2 drafts. Its ok not to be mad when you lose, everything will be ok. Tomorrow is only a day away. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow, you're only a daaaaaaaaaaaaaay aaaaaaaaaaawaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

    Sign me up as soon as the 48 hour time limit has expired, and if Petra isn't keeping that rule then include me now



    And don't worry about Ghost, he's as level headed as they get at the other Draft

    Also in case there are any other questions here is MD's handy dandy draft explanation.....

    This game goes through a series of stages:

    Stage 1: Sign Ups
    Eleven spots must be filled; three Judges and eight GMs. Once sign ups are complete, the Commissioner randomly creates the draft order, and we move on to Stage 2.

    Stage 2: Drafting
    The eight GMs, in order, draft a Jedi to their team until each GM has one Jedi. Then the order is reversed, and the GM who picked last gets to pick first in the second round of drafting. This continues until each GM has a team of six Jedi. The remaining unpicked Jedi are free agents, and can be traded for until the Semi-Finals. During drafting, GMs may trade Jedi or Draft positions via PMs to each other and then BOTH PMing THE COMMISSIONER before the trade can be official. Once there are eight teams of six, we move on to Stage 3.

    Stage 3: Division Battles
    The Commissioner randomly seperates the eight teams into 2 four-team divisions: Tatooine and Dagobah. Once the divisions have been announced, the Commissioner will assign which teams will battle each other, and ask for numbers to be sent in. All of the GMs will assign each of their Jedi with a number between 1-6.

    For example, lets take two hypothetical teams:

    Team #1
    Kyp Durron
    Corran Horn
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    Kyle Katarn
    Ganner Rhysode
    Saba Sabatyne

    and

    Team #2
    Darth Vader
    Ulic Qel-Droma
    Naga Sadow
    Marka Ragnos
    Darth Bandon
    Shira Brie

    All the GMs would assign the numbers 1-6 to their teams and PM them to the Commish. So the numbers might end up like this:

    Team #1
    5. Kyp Durron
    2. Corran Horn
    1. Mara Jade Skywalker
    6. Kyle Katarn
    3. Ganner Rhysode
    4. Saba Sabatyne

    and

    Team #2
    1. Darth Vader
    4. Ulic Qel-Droma
    6. Naga Sadow
    5. Marka Ragnos
    2. Darth Bandon
    3. Shira Brie

    Once all eight GMs have PMed their numbers to the Commish, he calls numbers at random, and we have our battles. So, for example, let's say the first number called is 2. That would mean that in the above hypothetical battle Corran Horn would battle Darth Bandon.

    Here's where the judges come in. The three judges each post who they think would win in this lightsaber/force battle, and give explanations as to why they feel that way. If one judge thinks Corran Horn would win, and one thinks Darth Bandon would, it then becomes nessessary for the third judge to speak up. Once there is a winner for each battle, the Commish calls another number, and this continues until all the battles have been done.

    In the case of a 3 win/3 loss tie, those teams now participate in a Team Battle. The three judges now must decide who would win in a battle between all six Jedi from one team versus all six Jedi from another team.

    Each team in the division will battle each other, for a total of three battles a peice. Once all three battles are decided, the top two teams from each division move on to the next stage.

    Stage 4: Semi-Finals
    The Commish will assign the new battles so that each of the four remaining teams are fighting a team from the other division. Battles run the same, GMs send in numbers, Commish announces mach-ups, and the judges decide who wins. The winning teams move on to the next stage.

    Stage 5: Finals
    Here we are, the best two teams of the draft, battling each other, no holds barred. The battle works the same, except this is for ALL the MARBLES!

    You're probably asking yourself, "So what do you win?" Well, aside from the admiration from your fellow Fan Force members and personal pride, the winner gets an automatic spot in the next Draft (if he/she wants) AND automatic First Draft Pick! The Runner up gets an automatic spot in the next Draft (if he/she wants) AND automatic Second Draft Pick!

    *bows*

    I would be most honored to join you and Axia as a judge. Thank you.

    And no worries about me kids...Axia and I often disagree on many things, including Star Wars *gasp* - I promise to act as a fair, impartial, non-Axia influenced Judge. :D
