FANTASY Draft League (FDL)

Recommended Posts

Re: FANTASY Draft League

Thank you for your interest drink. Hope you have fun.

I guess it is because the game hasn't start or people here are busy, we are still short of a few more, could cut the league size depending on the next 1-2days. Where to advertise? on eBay? lol. Would like to get things going and start drafting this weekend that's why I asked about the timing. Looks like no US Time Zone though... if that's the case we could do draft at SM Time 08:00 then it will suit EU & Azn.

The initial part is the hectic part, will require about 4 sessions, but after that it is pretty easy - Trading and smaller season drafting using the forums.

Re: FANTASY Draft League

I notice there is another draft league going on. But we have no problems with that.

That draft league is based on shortlists while we're a live draft. I applaud the organiser for taking requests and a lot of time and effort to come out with his game. He is one of those that I respect with fresh ideas about the game and a mind of his own.

I'm not sure if most of the participants there think deep enough, I guess a few are starting to see it after some enlightenment from others. The idea of a shortlist is not as conceptually flawless as it is first assumed.

There is actually a prominent random factor going on no matter what size of shortlist is used, of course it gets worse if it is small because the shortlist is gonna be similar to most others anyway. In short, the randomizing comes in the form of the organiser's drafting procedures and his opinion on players.

Though I'll think with shortlist, most people will just choose to close one eye if you are not too picky about your team, after all you have somebody doing all the work for you.

The consolation is that you can still expect to see most familiar players from your shortlist. However, it will not be the same as a live draft, the order that they are being picked will definitely be different.

Simply put, the squads from a single-man shortlisting will differ from allowing every manager to pick for his own team at a live draw. It is something that cannot replace every managers individual judgment and also the excitement that comes along with live drafting. :D
