    Welcome to the first edition of the Wrestling Draft.

    Like to argue about who the best wrestler ever is? Ever wonder what would happen if your favorite wrestlers faced off against each other? Well, now you have that chance.

    Anyway, this is not a very exciting opening post, but if you're a wrestling fan, or just a draft fan, I'm sure the arguments will be. So, without further ado, Let's get it on!

    Participants

    There are three different types of participants in this (and any) draft game.

    1. The Commissioner That's me. It's my job to enforce the rules, update draft lists, generate matches, keep the game flowing, randomize draft lists, and basically take crap from everyone else when things don't go their way.

    2. GMs It's the job of the GMs to assemble their teams, mainly through drafting, but trades and free agency can be used as well. It's also the job of the GMs to send in numbers (we'll discuss this later), and, optionally, argue as to why their character(s) should win matches.

    3. Judges It's the job of the Judges to, well, judge. They decide who will win matches. They also are encouraged to provide breakdowns of teams and grades for draft picks as the drafting moves along, but this is not required.


    Those are the participants, now let's get into mechanics.

    Step 1: The Draft

    Once all the positions are filled, I'll randomize the draft order and post the list from which the GMs will draft their teams. There will be ten rounds of drafting, which of course means that each team will consist of ten characters. The draft order will also reverse after each round. This is so that the people in the lower part of the first round aren't getting the shaft by giving them picks that are closer together.

    Example:

    Round 1
    1. Team A
    2. Team B
    3. Team C
    4. Team D

    Round 2
    1. Team D
    2. Team C
    3. Team B
    4. Team A

    And we'll do ten rounds like that.

    STEP 2: THE MATCHUPS

    Once all ten rounds of drafting are completed, I'll post the first round of matchups. Each GM's squad will face off against another GM's squad. Once the matchups are posted, I'll ask each GM to PM me a set of numbers. Basically what you do here is assign each character on your squad a number from 1 to 8, and when I randomly call, for example, the number 6, whoever you placed at number 6 will square off against whomever the opposing GM placed at number 6. Fairly simple, right?

    Now, this draft is a little bit different than other drafts, so please read the following, even if you've played in a draft before.

    For this draft, there are two lists. A wrestler list, and a manager list. Here's why:

    You draft 8 male wrestlers, 1 female and 1 manager(from either the female list or manager list). If it's from the female list, then it doesn't have to be specified which female is the manager. Meaning you don't have to pick a manager if you don't want to, but you'll have to pick two females in that case. That will be your team.

    Now, for the matches. 8 spots, with 1 designated woman's spot which is where your woman pick will fight. So, on your bench would be one male wrestler and your manager(or second female).

    The biggest difference for this draft is the PREPS: you have 3 options. First, match type prep. That's where you choose what match to put your wrestler in.(I will post the list of available match type options with the wrestler list)

    Then you have a couple of preps for your bench to work with. There are two different types of bench prep. Prep with your benched wrestler would give you a 2-man team on one slot(call this your bench prep). The next would be the manager prep. This is different than a 2-man team: the manager would be at ringside. If you put the wrestler prep on your woman, the wrestler would be at ringside, acting as manager(unless it is a woman being prepped with a woman, in which case it acts like a normal bench prep).

    So, that would be three preps per match: Match Prep(Choose your match type), Bench Prep(a tag

    If you need someone, I can fill in, but I'd rather leave the spot for someone who is going to be more knowledgeable and probably passionate.

    I couldn't find the YJCC's wrestling thread, and the search was not up there because of the anniversary banner.
