    Welcome to the 16th EUC Starfighter Draft! I, PointGiven, will be commissioner again, so yay and stuff

    The playoff system will be done the same as last time, so ladders will return. The cap on trades (2 per GM) remains in effect as does the ban on trading draft positions.

    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 flaming/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. But I think I'll be fine in that regard.

    Welcome back to the 15th iteration of the EUC Starfighter draft. 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)
    The 8th EUC Starfighter Draft: Draft Force Rising (Winner Shadow_of_Durron)
    The Ninth EUC Starfighter Draft: The Last Commander Commander (Winner TypoCelchu)

    Was going to offer my services as a Judge, then I noticed those spots were taken up by amateurs, so I guess it's GMing time.

    If he were wise he'd try and ignore that "benefit".

    Rules are the same as last draft so previous winner gets to choose his or her draft slot.

    Can we get some consistency then? Every OP since the 12th has stated that the winner gets 1st pick, not their choice.

    It is not unheard of to see a champ forfeit the 1 spot, but typical tradition in that situation is that they then fall victim to randomization much like the rest of us.
