Alright, one more judge and we can get started.
I waited too long... oh, well.
I am sure all those GMs of the Jedi Draft will keep us all updated in the Jedi Draft in the Community thread.
Bravo to Corran-Horn for getting this set up here, where it actually probably will do better.
Good luck, Corran, and to all the GMs.
But, if Corran, if you are GMing, who is the Commish?
Corran isn't a GM, Madine.
Anyway...I guess I can judge. If Corran wants me.
Yay! This is the fastest this Draft has ever filled up. I knew it was a good idea to bring the game here!
Anyways, we are all filled up and we have our final judge, GrandAdmiralJello.
So, here is how everything stands:
This should be quite an entertaining game
I'll post the Draft Roster later this afternoon, at which time, I will gladly take any suggestions about pilots you would like to see added to the list. Remember, they must be Starfighter pilots. Depending on how quickly I can get suggestions, i'll then post the draft order, which will be randomly generated. By that I mean I will literally draw names out of a hat to make the list There will be 6 rounds of Drafting, meaning each team will consist of 6 Pilots.
For the time being, feel free to talk amongst yourselves, and if you have any specific questions, send me a PM, or ask any of those in the game who have previous Draft experience.
On With the Draft!!
EDIT: Sorry, SecondBest, but Jello actually took the time to PM me, which is what I asked for on the first post So too bad for you.
Do judges post their decisions in here, when the time arises?
Yes, once the competitions start (which will be a while from now), I will be posting the match-ups in the thread, at which time the judges will post their decisions.
Also, though it's not required, judges usually give "end-of-round" breakdowns of the GM's selections.
Blast! no more spots.
Oh well, if someone drops out I'd be glad to take their place.
Cool! Its filled up.
LET'S GET IT ON!!!
Alrighty then! How about we get that Draft Roster up? Here are the pilots that are currently available to choose from, in no particular order...except alphabetical...
Hohass ?Runt? Ekwesh
Baron Soontir Fel
Derek "Hobbie" Klivian
Daviish "Pops" Krail
Garik ?Face? Loran
Koobis ?Target? Nu
Voort ?Piggy? saBinring
Mara Jade Skywalker
Eurrsk ?Grinder? Thri?ag
Darth Vader (separate from Anakin)
Jon ?Dutch? Vander
Remember, this is just the list for now. If anybody has any pilots they would like to see added (or subtracted) to the list, please send me a PM. Depending on how many new names I can fit into the list, i'll probably post the Draft Order sometime tonight.
Dash Rendar as a starfighter pilot?
last I checked the Outrider was a freighter. and if you're going to try to justify it with the fact that he flew with Rogue Squadron at the Battle of Hoth, I would like to remind you that a T-47 is an airspeeder (snowspeeder), and not a starfighter.
Yeah, Dash has garnered some debate in the Drafts, but it was agreed upon to put him on the list due to several reasons: His pilot training at the academy, his experiences on Hoth, and that he's said to be as good a pilot as Han, who has also sparked some debate.
Leave it to the EUC to be literal! There seemed to be no protest to Rendar in the first SFD (I went and studied up...). I think we should leave him in- would make for an interesting argument with the judges.
If Nunb and Rendar are going to be on there, put Chewie on as well.
Here's a few suggestions:
4 of those 5 are considered to be rather incredible pilots, and 3 of them are actually Starfighter pilots.
Then, don't forget Rookie One.
EDIT: Don't forget Octa Ramis, Kyle Katarn, or Jan Ors.
EDIT2: Or the Vong pilot(s) from EL.
I'll concede the Rendar point then, I guess. Didn't know about the past debate on the matter. Why not Han then, though?
Good ole Rookie One. Reminded me a lot of Luke Skywalker for some reason...
Ooh, PF brings up a good point, we should consider some Yuuzhan Vong.
My growing list of suggestions, some dependent on if anyone is dropped from the list:
Sarkli (from Rebel Strike)
Rookie One (the Revan of this draft)
* = Fly something other than Starfighters.
I don't know about all of those... I think if we kept Rendar in, we'd have to accept a lot of them, but if we took him out, we wouldn't have to deal with some of those people. Han Solo is the same way.
Yeah, I don't know about all the bounty hunters and other freighter-based pilots. Solo and Rendar were orginially placed on at the request of GMs, if I recall. I'd like to here some opinions from the rest of you on the matter.
Also, the only problem with putting Vong on the list is if people will actually pick them. A Vong on a team with a group of Rogues wouldn't exactly work.
Then again, it would probably just be like having Jedi and Sith in the Jedi Draft, so it might work.
Okay, let's get this thing started.
Do we need to be PMing our squadron names to you?
No, nothing is required of GMs as of now. When the time comes, you can just post your team names in the thread.
Leia Organa Solo
Just trying to think of candidates. I think all of those actually fly starfighters, so they might actually be okay.
Sorry if I'm jumping the gun here, but are there trumps in this?
I haven't decided if I'll allow trumps or not. We haven't included them before, but I might change my mind before we start.
