    Auction Draft

    this is a draft for the first five people to join only, perhaps six if you're fine with it running exceedingly long

    i made a list of players, most decent to very good, that none of you know.

    you will have one million Slims, S1,000,000, to use at the inaugural Slimdian Premier League.

    with this you must pick eleven players from a randomized auction order of these players

    you do not know who is coming next, nor who is coming at all, which is a nice dinky little twist in the tale, meaning you don't know whether you should hold out for someone better or bid now.

    the list has more than enough of each type of player in case someone thinks that being a doucheknuckle and buying all the keepers is a good idea, so there is more than enough for five entrants and i can add a few more for six.

    rules:
    -i put a player up for auction where he will be bid on
    -if you have no interest in the player you can pass, be warned if you pass you cannot rejoin the auction for that player
    -if everyone has passed or there is no bid within twenty four hours (whichever's first) then he is passed up and goes to the back of the order
    -your bid is the winning bid and you get the player if either nobody else has bid for twelve hours or everyone else has passed
    -there isn't a maximum or minimum bid per se and you're free to bid half your Slims immediately if you want but that's ridiculous
    -please try to not run out of money, if you were to put yourself in a ****ty position try to suck it up and then when everyone's got a full team hope the next player happens to be real good
    -if you are a giant douche to anyone or do anything unsportsmanlike i'll fine you
    -oh and a psa to everyone pls don't pass up every player during the first round of auctions to see who's in because then you're lame and no fun, ad hominem.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
