Its been a while since we had a draft game so i thought I would set up the first one for 2011 and hopefully get enough people to make it work.


Here is how it will work, I need 12 players ( including myself). The players will be randomly decided and placed in a snake draft. Every player will have 12 hours to make there pick.

Everyone will then pick 16 fighters to take part in there own 16 man tournament. You will pick fighters from your own category which will also be decided randomly.

The categories are:

HW and LHW
LHW and MW
MW and WW
WW and LW
LW and FW
FW and BW

So everyone will have 2 weight classes to make there Grand Prix. You can only pick a fighter who has fought at that weight class within the last 5 yrs.

You cant choose a fighter who has already been picked or who is not in one of your weight classes. If you miss your 12 hours the draft will continue and the player who missed there pick can catch up when they log back in.

2 players will be placed in each category. Once the draft has been completed you will go head to head with the player in your own category. We will then have 6 finalists.

If you would like to take part then either add your name below or PM me. If you have any questions then please ask them on this thread and I will answer them asap.

If I cant get 12 people then I will see how many people are interested and go from there.

Ill play. Im confused about something though, if we get two weight classes, do we pick 8 from each? Or is this one mixed-weight tournament?

As long as you only pick fighters from the 2 weight classes you are given there is no rules on how many fighters you choose from each weight, you could even have 16 from 1 weight class and ignore the other weight class if you think that would give you the best 16 man Grand Prix.

I like the set-up, but I do think that anyone at FW/BW is going to be at a disadvantage.
Rabi
1/9/11 3:22:23PM
Possibly, but that is were the luck of the draw will come in, I think combining the weight classes you will be able to get a pretty strong Grand Prix though.

Is that the way we are doing it? Usually we just pick one fighter at a time.
bmaker
1/12/11 3:32:03AM
shitty post #3
Kpro
1/12/11 4:28:40AM
PM me if I'm in as I may not check the thread later, but I noticed the same person is pick 4 and 12 and may have been an accident. Let me know.
Pookie
1/12/11 4:38:41AM
So Bmaker still has to make his pick right?
Rabi
1/12/11 5:14:11AM
This has got off to a bad start LOL, bmaker has got the wrong end of the stick. You have to pick 1 fighter at a time. I will PM him, I will also correct the draft as kpro is in the draft, bmaker still needs to pick but Franklinfan can also pick as the 12 hrs are up.

Georges "Rush" St. Pierre.

Sweet me and Ncordless are LHW/MW, I hope he can make weight because I want to take Ncordless with my first overall pick if he's still available at pick 12.

It depends on how long I have until the tourney starts. If the tourney starts within the next year, I am probably not going to make weight as my workouts consist of carrying around thick books in a backpack and staring at a computer screen for hours.

Since we are directly competing, I suggest you take Sean Salmon with your first pick as he is a good approximation of my own skills.
