    Welcome to the 21st EUC Starfighter Draft, the first one in the SWC! Hark! We also have previous SWC drafts! This means this is the 25th combined SWC/EUC Draft! I will be your commish for this 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 their choice of pick position 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 20th iteration of the EUC Starfighter Draft. As in previous drafts, there will be 8 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 SWC Starfighter Draft (Winner: Gaeri)
    The 2nd SWC Starfighter Draft (Winner: SuperVader)
    The 3rd SWC Starfighter Draft (Winner: Corran10584)
    The 4th SWC Starfighter Draft (Winner: JansonYellowAces)

    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)

    Here is the pilot list. I have a lot to add, as you can imagine. They are outlined in bold. Please give me suggestions for more, or if I should take some off the list. For certain pilots in both Legends and EU, we will be using them at their most skilled, which of course means Legends for pilots such as Wedge

    Tell you what, if a GM disappears and you need someone to take over a team. let me know, and I'll be in. Or, if a judge disappears.

    @Point Given @DarthIntegral

    You know what? I'm in no position to judge this draft yet. I actually want to play it first. I'll wait my turn to judge the next Jedi Draft instead when I commish it. Hope that's cool. Also can we start the draft Monday please? I'm not going to be around much this weekend.

    And, just like that ... Imperial stock went down, Jedi stock went up, and 'sey's odds of winning went exponentially higher.

    I will mention that I now rank Darth Vader as the best pilot in the draft over Luke. That Rebels scene sealed the deal.

    And with the first pick in the SWC Star fighter draft....Darth Vader

    What about cohesion there?

    Pick him and find out. I personally find it hard to build a team around him, then again having a cohesive team isn't the only way to win a draft.

    That's not fair at all, Poe is actually damn good.
