    so far it appears that this style is the majority, although i'm still not too sure what ken's answer meant. i think i may return to the original stratagem of making it all drawn from the same pool.

    i appologize for the flip-floppyness of it all, i vow to be more solid in the future.

    What I'm saying is, if we switch back to a single pool for all 12 GMs, then ditch the 8 player idea and just have 6. Because with one pool for 12 people, you're already gonna be digging deep for those 5th and 6th picks, and those 7th and 8th guys will just ride the bench the whole time. And that kind of defeats the whole purpose of having a bench option.

    If we stick with the separate pool for 6 GMs, then keep the 8 player idea. Then people are going to actually have quality guys in the 7th and 8th slots to have to choose from, and that's the challenge factor of having a bench option.

    Since it looks like most folks want one single pool, then I think we should return to simply having 6 players with no bench option.

    but the benchies come out for the team battles. in the super-hero draft i've got nightcrawler and forge, whom i'd never use individually, but it adds to the trump pool and i'm glad to have them on my team. if we do it this way we might actually see people pick up jedi like aayla or tholme, or maybe even zett jukasa!8-}

    Well, you're teh Commish, Maxle.

    This is gonna be one crazy drafting process, though. Should be exciting. :D

    Only 3 more spots... [face_mischief]

    Believe it or not, I like Maxle's general idea. Here's what I propose:

    The 'bench' option as a nonfighting position. There is where you put your strategists, your BM and mind meld masters, and what not - just as a new 'intangible'. They would not directly affect or participate in the combat of team battles, but they'd be assumed to be in harm's way of some sort(so you could, if you wished, put the lover of someone on the bench to spur their fighting abilities if you wished). I think it would add something to the game - but maybe it would be decreased to one spot. Either way.

    Interesting idea, Zookie. That could work.

    Or, howza bout this: Ditch the whole "bench" thing. Have 8 rounds of individual combat.

    "But the guys at the bottom are so crappy! They won't ever win!" You say? Well, maybe draft those last two with trumps in mind. Make some of your better guys better with teh power of teh trump. With 8 per team, double-trumping isn't nearly the crazy risk it is with 6 per team, and even those bottom-of-the-barrel picks can give a better fighter just enough oomph to overcome a superior opponent.

    Or don't trump them. Fling poor Tionne out there as Vader-bait. That used to be Kam's job, so maybe Tionne could take over for him. ;)

    And as I was telling the esteemed KenKenobi a little earlier, sure, someone like Xanatos may go up against Vaders or Lukes or Kuns or whatnot and get sliced a lot, but he also might land on... Brakiss! It's no conflict of Earth-shattering proportions, but the outcome would affect the entire match, that's for damn sure. And watch as GMs scramble to find ways to argue for freakin' Xanatos! Fun stuff, man!

    What's 2 more lousy rounds of individual matches? It's not going to take that much longer... and is anyone really in any particular hurry?

    Just my $0.02

    (Of course, we need to fill the spots first. ;) )

    And with 8 individual matches, there'll be a lot less matches that go to teams. And a lot less hinging on who you drafted than on what numbers you get.

    I say go with Maxle's original proposal, even if it dulls the point of having to make a choice in benching/starting certain players.

    You get all the perks of a 12 GM draft, with some extra drafting prowess needed at the last picks and the larger possibility at hand of having them tip the scales when they come off the bench for teams. That's gonna be fun, both in the drafting process and in the matches.

    So let's get 3 more GMs and get this thing rollin'! :D

    I say we don't seperate the pools, but do make it 8 individual rounds and eliminate the bench idea. If that's even up for vote, I mean.

    I like eliminating the bench idea, that could get real interesting.

    So is there any word if the "real" Jedi Draft is ever occuring again or will it just be in the fanforces. I rather don't mind because there has been no problems in any of these drafts. Although I was looking forward to that huge draft.

    i started talking about that in the swc "games suggestion" thread and then strilo yelled at me. he told me that if i ever brought it up again, or did anybody else that he'd ban us and then thanked us not to "de-rail" his thread again.

    but if this draft turns out to be a success, i'd certainly have a larger draft the next time around.
