    CW Draft League

    Overview
    I am looking for eleven other players to participate in a 12-man draft league. The concept is that we draft teams in different formats just like Monk's 'quick ATG draft', for example. At the end the selection period, we vote on the best team (everyone is welcome to vote), with each person contributing three votes each. Eventually, we can distinguish who the best drafter on CW is. There will be a twelve hour pick limit. I am also considering relegation, where the last and/or second last finishers/championship contenders make way for other players waiting to join, but this is something I would like feedback on. The first round will be a classical, standard ATG Test draft.

    Points format
    First place: 10
    Second place: 6
    Third place: 4
    Fourth: 3
    Fifth: 2
    Sixth: 1

    Any suggestions as to how I can improve the draft, such as the amount of players, styles of draft, points format etc. are welcome!

    So, anyone in?

    Would people mind if I reserved a spot for watson? He has already indicated his interest and I feel like it's the right thing to do.

    Of course not. Watson definitely deserves a spot.

    Agreed, he is one of our most enthusiastic drafters. He's in, so we now have five players. Is 12 a good amount? What do you think about relegation?

    Definitely interested.

    Need some clarification on the draft itself, though. Is it just a straight ATG draft? Bradman allowed?

    The first draft will be a 'pure draft', one that is not affected by any special rules (taboo, auction etc.), but Bradman will be banned. I will randomise the order and reverse it for the second round, then randomise the order again every second round.

    I have an idea for a different type of draft, which I am calling a 'secret draft'. I'll run it by everyone soon, I'll need to think it out more thoroughly.

    I think Bradman should be included. Selecting him doesn't ever automatically win any one a draft and he played the game just like every one else.
    Please include the Don.

    Including the Don doesn't test out drafting skills though. He's so far ahead of second place that it creates such a heavy luck element that you don't want for something like this.

    At least put it up for a vote.
    Also every time we ban the Don, Sobers or rarely Imran goes first. Do we want to ban Sobers as well.
    Personally if I had the first vote I wouldn't take Bradman, but thats probably just me.

    Nah definitely not in favour of Bradman being in. It gives an unfair advantage to the guy who gets first pick because, like Eds said, Bradman was so far ahead anyone else available. Picking Bradman first involves little skill or tactical thinking, it's just an obvious easy pick. Bradman not being available makes it a better test of draft skills than luck of the draw.

    I'd be keen. Cricsimmers involved can spam me with reminders if I drift off.
