    Did you hear the one about the three time draft champ that walked into a bar? He said ouch. Then they asked him to run a draft instead of win one. And then he proved how much of a glutton for pain he really was by agreeing to. So here we are, the 13th EUC Starfighter Draft!

    Rules:

    1. VIPs - Colors - Titles: Once again, the winner of the Starfighter Draft will be awarded VIP status and colors for the duration of one week. The winner also gets automatic entry and first pick in the next draft. Also, all losers will receive 24 hour game bans.

    2. Leave Your Problems At the Door: If any personal problems or disputes arise in the midst of the Draft, please refrain from playing them out in the thread. Take care of things outside the Draft, and if problems persist, contact either myself, or one of the Mods, and we'll see what can be done.

    3. Obey the Forums Rules: Talking and discussions is encouraged, so long as nothing gets too heated. Just follow the normal forum rules, (no flamming/spamming/trolling, etc.) and you should be fine. Please respect everyone else in the game; it'll work out better for everyone.

    4. No Replacing the Commissioner: If I'm going to be out for an extended period of time, then I'll arrange for someone to act as temporary Commissioner until I return. GMs and Judges will not take it onto themselves to find a new Commish to fill in if I happen to be absent.

    Welcome back to the 13th iteration of the EUC Starfighter draft. It?s been well over 8 months since the draft has been up and running, in part to give leeway to the Ultimate Draft, and in part because all the fools that were previously duped into running this beast found excuses to get out of doing it again. But seeing as we have a serious draft drought going, I think the time has come for a revival of our classic EUC institution! As in previous drafts, there will be 12 GM positions, which are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Simply assign your name to a spot on the draft list, in thread, to claim your spot. Judging positions will be filled via PM application, and announced in thread by myself. New drafters are recommended to begin as GMs, as the judging positions are demanding both in knowledge of the pilots, and the draft itself.

    GMs will be responsible for assembling a competitive draft team consisting of 8 pilots (Make your picks within 24 hours or you WILL lose your draft pick positioning. Missing three consecutive picks can lead to your removal from the draft altogether!), providing a team name, and managing their team for the duration of the draft. Judges will, in turn, be? judging matches, which sounds deceptively easy.

    It is highly recommended that all newcomers to the draft, as well as those who feel a little rusty, review previous drafts to get a feel for where to start, and what was successful for past draft champs:

    The First Ever EUC Starfighter Draft - 2004 (Winner - Saber Leader)
    The Second EUC Starfighter Draft - It's Official!! (Winner - Talon_Kenobi)
    The EUC Starfighter Draft - Episode III: Revenge of the TIEs (Winner - Codename_Targeter)
    The EUC Starfighter Draft - Episode IV: A New Hot-Shot (Winner - Shadow_of_Durron)
    The EUC Starfighter Draft - Episode V: The Shovel Strikes Back (Winner - Jaina Byrd)
    The EUC Starfighter Draft - Episode VI: Return of the Pilots (Winner - Corran10584)
    The EUC Starfighter Draft ? Episode VII: Heir to the Hanger Bay (Winner - TypoCelchu)

    You're going down, Hav!

    Also, can we just make it that Mods have to have hideous colors if we lose instead of the ban? That way Hav and I don't have to play with a sock?

    Sure, I think we can manage that. Obviously game bans aren't really viable for Mods, but I think we can manage the horrible colors, and possibly a "Draft Loser" title to go along with it...

    As long as I get to choose the colors. [face_mischief]

    Sure you can choose the colors. Yeah, I'm sure there will be smack talk in the title too.

    It wouldn't be worth it without the smack talk!

    Spread the word to your friends, chil'ren. This probably caught a few off guard, so I'm sure a few people would like a heads up that we're back up and running.

    Asking Havac not to be sour is like asking Trip to enjoy the EU.

    Not that it would particularly increase your chances at success.
