    So I'd wanted to have a longer break in between drafts in order to keep the game fresh. I meant to start around the new year, but forgot until today [face_blush]

    Since the last two drafts have maxed out at 8 GM's we'll just take that as the standard, unless more people want to play.

    Welcome to the 19th EUC Starfighter Draft!

    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.

    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 18th 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 champions:

    The 1st EUC Starfighter Draft (Winner: Saber Leader)
    The 2nd EUC Starfighter Draft (Winner: Talon_Kenobi)
    The 3rd EUC Starfighter Draft: Revenge of the TIEs (Winner: Codename_Targeter)
    The 4th EUC Starfighter Draft: A New Hot Shot (Winner: Shadow_of_Durron)
    The 5th EUC Starfighter Draft: The Shovel Strikes Back (Winner: Jaina Byrd)
    The 6th EUC Starfighter Draft: Return of the Pilots (Winner: Corran10584)
    The 7th EUC Starfighter Draft: Heir to the Hangar Bay (Winner: TypoCelchu)
    The 8th EUC Starfighter Draft: Draft Force Rising (Winner: Shadow_of_Durron)
    The 9th EUC Starfighter Draft: The Last Commander (Winner: TypoCelchu)
    The 10th EUC Starfighter Draft: The New Pilot Order (Winner: Talon_Kenobi)
    The 11th EUC Starfighter Draft: Legacy of the Juffernaut (Winner: Daughter_of_Yubyub)
    The 12th EUC Starfighter Draft: Death Shovel (Winner: TypoCelchu)
    The 13th EUC Starfighter Draft: I've Got a Bad Feeling About This (Winner: s65horsey)
    The 14th EUC Starfighter Draft: Backdraft (Winner: KenKenobi)
    The 15th EUC Starfighter Draft: Ace Errant (Winner: New_York_Jedi)
    The 16th EUC Starfighter Draft: A Draft of Ice and Fire (Winner: Trimaj)
    The 17th EUC Starfighter Draft: Pigs on the Wing (Winner: GrandAdmiralJello)
    The 18th EUC Starfighter Draft: Older Than a Disney Princess (Winner: Mikaboshi)

    Each player drafts a roster of starfighter pilots. Then your team is matched-up against another player's and it becomes a "who would win: X or Y?" game/srs business; reading through a past draft is probably the best way to learn.

    Give it a try @Cushing's Admirer , these are a lot of fun. There is also a Jedi Draft in the SWC and a Comic Character Draft in the JCC, basically the same as what is here except with Jedi and Sith or comic book characters.

    @Mikaboshi Thanks for the encouragement. I could use some fun. It's been rough going and it looks like it's continuing just in a new direction in DRL. :) I will try and sort out what this is in the prior thread.

    May want to put your name down for now, just in case it fills up fast. You can always drop if you find out in a day that you don't want to try it. Super fun. Just pick the best pilots you can, and build a team that works well together and can win some dog fights.

    If you need some help just let me know, I won't tell you who to pick but I can get you some pointers if needed.

    PS: It would be kind of fun once to take the past 8 winning teams and run them through a "champion of champions" draft, no picking of teams, just using the same teams selected in that specific draft.

    Would be interesting to see which of those teams was the strongest.

    PS: Here would be the 8 most recent teams to win the draft, from newest draft to oldest in descending order.


    Anakin Skywalker, Maarek Stele, Adi Gallia, Saba Sebatyne, Tesar Sebatyne, Plo Koon, Lowbacca, Mace Windu

    Darth Vader, Maarek Stele, Horton Salm, Dash Rendar, Nial Declann, Edor Crespin, Gavyn Sykes

    Tycho Celchu, Pash Cracken, Kasan Moor, Syal Antilles, Jhoram Bey, Anj Dahl, Vindoo "The Shooter" Barvel, Falynn Sandskimmer

    Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Jacen Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Dash Rendar, "Piggy" Voort saBinring, Dak Ralter, Jek "Piggy" Porkins


    Baron Soontir Fel, Jagged Fel, Jake Farell, Shawnkyr Nuruodo, Zekk, Edor Crespin, Tyria Sarkin, Villian Dance


    Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Mara Jade Skywalker, Plourr Ilo, Kyle Katarn, Olin Garn, Tyria Sarkin, Atril Tabanne

    Gavin Darklighter, Derek "Hobbie" Klivian, Aril Nunb, Alinn Varth, Nrin Vakil, Tal'dira, Nawara Ven, Riv Nebucanezzar Shiel

    Anakin Skywalker, Saesee Tiin, Obi-wan Kenobi, Adi Gallia, Bror Jace, Carth Onasi, Oddball, Ric Olie
