    This one's over, folks.

    Alright, draftboy. Tired of the arguments in the Jedi Draft? Bored with the Starfighter Draft? Not man enough for the Comic Book Draft? Or do you just need even more draft action to satisfy your thirst? Then we've got a draft designed just for you.

    Alright, gamerboy. Thumbs worn down from those button mashers? Tired of looking for cheat codes and mods for your favorite games? Sick of Tom Nook and his annoying little kids? Mad that your game genie doesn't work anymore? Then we've got a draft designed just for you.

    Alright, argumentboy. Looking for a place to yell and scream about how great your favorite character is? Ready to prove once and for all that Master Chief is actually Mistress Chump? Ready to argue that solving the puzzles leading to Gannon really are the best indication of intelligence on any planet? Then we've got a draft designed just for you.

    Come all. All ye who love the draft. All ye who love the gamez. All ye who think ye are 1337. All ye who just lurk.

    Welcome, to the second installment of The Video Game Draft.

    While the first draft was far from a resounding success, we're back to try it again, with some tweaking, some polish, and, hopefully, a better product overall. But, for a reference, please check out the previous draft: Video Game Draft Tournament

    The first draft was won by Shadow_of_Durron, and as such he is now enshrined into the Video Game Draft Hall of Fame.

    Now that we have the introduction done, let me go through the basic rules of the game.

    Participants

    There are three different types of participants in this (and any) draft game.

    1. The Commissioner That's me. It's my job to enforce the rules, update draft lists, generate matches, keep the game flowing, randomize draft lists, and basically take crap from everyone else when things don't go their way.

    2. GMs It's the job of the GMs to assemble their teams, mainly through drafting, but trades and free agency can be used as well. It's also the job of the GMs to send in numbers (we'll discuss this later), and, optionally, argue as to why their character(s) should win matches.

    3. Judges It's the job of the Judges to, well, judge. They decide who will win matches. They also are encouraged to provide breakdowns of teams and grades for draft picks as the drafting moves along, but this is not required. All Judging Spots For This Draft Are Filled. No More Judges Accepted


    So that's an overview, let's look at the way the draft will shake-out.

    Step 1: The Draft

    Once all the positions are filled, I'll randomize the draft order and post the two lists from which the GMs will draft their teams. There will be ten rounds of drafting, which of course means that each team will consist of ten characters. The draft order will also reverse after each round. This is so that the people in the lower part of the first round aren't getting the shaft by giving them picks that are closer together.

    Example:

    Round 1
    1. Team A
    2. Team B
    3. Team C
    4. Team D

    Round 2
    1. Team D
    2. Team C
    3. Team B
    4. Team A

    And we'll do ten rounds like that.

    Now, I mentioned that there were two lists before. There's the power list, and the regular list. The characters on the power list are generally considered to be extremely powerful (Duh. :p) and are on a separate list so that each GM is limited in how many of them they can pick for their squad. The number of characters that each GM can select from the power list is three.

    It should be noted that characters from the power list are not unbeatable just because they're on that list. Certain characters from the regular list can exploit possible weakness of the power list characters, and certain characters from the regular list benefit gre

    Well I am definitely back for another round of goodness. After all I am top dog around here now that the top three from the first draft turned into judges. :p

    Way to work things out Inty, this is looking really good. Shouldn't be too hard to have this version run smother anyway. Good job on the last one, I never did thank you.


    Oh and yeah, I almost forgot the point of this post.

    Time to come into the conflict from the beginning, I say.

    Zounds! Your system doth crash again! - No real point, the idea of an I.T. consultant Hercules just amuses me.

    But of course. [face_monkey]

    I'll also have my little general explanation of what prep time means to me up sometime tomorrow. Bit late to be starting on that tonight.

    Isn't that what it basically is though?

    Even though we have 3 judges already, and a backup, and a spare tire, and a first aid kit.... are you going to post what 'prep means to you' too Inty?
