    What's the matter, tired of Luke Skywalker going first every time in the Jedi Draft?

    Is seeing Carnage as a greasy smear becoming old hat?

    Perhaps you've had enough Final Fantasy characters to last you a life time, or maybe you just missed the boat on Neo and Gandalf.

    Maybe you were watching Pinnochio and started thinking to yourself, what if Jiminy Cricket fought Mighty Mouse?

    Whatever the reason, we've decided to give you another chance to make your version of the greatest team ever, and since DarthIntegral decided to descriminate against those
    created by pencil and paper, we've decided to give them their own draft.

    Welcome to the very first edition of the Animated Character draft!


    For those of you familiar with the Draft Game, feel free to skip reading the rest of this post, and just sign up. For those of you unfamiliar, we'll provide a quick synopsis of how to participate and all that jazz.

    The Participants

    There are three types of participants in this draft: The Commissioner, The Judges, and the GMs.

    The Commish: That's me! It's my job to make sure the draft runs smoothly. I take care of the draft list, randomize the draft order, call the matches, and keep track of the winners. I also have an open PM box for questions, complaints, and bad jokes. Also bribes.

    The Judges: There are three of these. It's their job to decide who wins the matches. They (sometimes) listen to arguments from GMs, and (sometimes) provide breakdowns on their reactions to picks during the drafting process. Also to take bribes.

    The GMs: That's you. There are either 12 or 16 of these. It's their job to assemble a good team(or bad, it's up to you). It's also their job to send in numbers (which we'll talk about in a bit), and to "pimp" their team in the eyes of the judges.

    Assembling a Team

    The bulk of the job of a GM, and the bulk of this game, is assembling the teams. This is done, mainly, through a drafting process. Once sign-ups are finished, a draft order will be published. When it is a GM's turn to pick, they should post in this thread the character they wish to select for their team. Be warned, however, that you only have 24-hours to select a character, so it is often a good idea to send a PM to the commish with a selection or two that you would like to make if your turn to pick is coming up soon and you might not be on. If your time expires, you will be "bumped" to the end of the round. If you are bumped twice during the process, you can be removed from the game.

    The draft order is reversed at the end of each round. So, if it begins this way:

    Team A
    Team B
    Team C
    Team D

    Then the next round, it will go

    Team D
    Team C
    Team B
    Team A

    And, we do that for ten rounds.

    The other ways to fill rosters for teams is through free agency and trades. Free agency occurs only in periods specified by the commish. During these times, you post in the thread a player you are dropping from your team, and a player you are dropping from the available list. To complete a trade, two GMs must agree to the deal, and then both must PM the commish for approval. If the trade is approved, the Commish will post so in the thread. Trades must be x-for-x character in terms of draft picks and characters (i.e. no 3-for-2 trades or anything of the like are allowed, also, there must be at least one character being traded. You may trade a character for a draft pick, for example, but you may not trade a draft pick for another draft pick).

    Competing

    Once the draft is complete, if 16 GMs sign up, the teams will be divided into two conferences. The teams in these conferences will play round robin, with the top teams advancing to the playoffs. The playoffs then continue in single-elimination until a champion is crowned. If only 12 GMs sign up, we'll play a double elimination tournament, with losing teams getting dropped out after two losses.

    Play between teams consists of three phases. In the first phase, the commish will announce the matches

    [Dwight]Wrong. I will know everyone because it is my job to know everyone. I will know their weaknesses, their strengths, in fact, you might as well just let me announce a winner after the drafting is done. I'm that good.[/Dwight]

    Well, if you're French, it still is.

    On a more technical note, I doubt many "american exclusive" characters will be drafted by serious drafters.

    I think you needed some stars or all caps letters in the title to grab attention for this one. I'm just now noticing this myself. Kinda blends in with the other threads a bit too much.

    Well, it seems that "What The Yak Has to Say About It" will have to be changed to something like "The Yak's Decisions..." Or something. Now for all those people who said stuff about my teams like "It's an incohesive mess" and "this team will never make the playoffs" and "I did your mother," I get to do the breakdowns now!!! MAHAHAHAHA
