    Welcome to the 17th EUC Starfighter Draft! I, PointGiven, will be commissioner again.

    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 17th 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:

    However, due to the truncated posts issue, the 10th through 16th SFD's are missing (also the previous SFD links are down anyway) I can recall the winners of the 14th through 16th SFDs but could anyone tell me the 10th through 13th?

    We have our third judge!

    Also, because I can't edit the original post due to editing it a day after, I decided to post the results of previous SFD's here with the correct and updated links. Shoutout to DarkEagle for finding them!

    I think it'll actually lead to some better overall teams, and more interesting drafting. I'm for it.
