    Cool, although that kinda removes the element of strategy needed in knowing which decades to attack early etc & makes it all slightly more dependent on draft order. So the themed rounds might not be altogether necessary, if they were removed, the strategy would be restored. But either way, I think the idea is sound bro & I'm in whichever way you decide to run it

    We did a double size version of this a few years ago - generation draft - it was fun. Splitting it further into decades as you describe would make it substantially different

    Drafts that are the most random tend to be the most fun as they allow for more strategy and manoeuvring. Let people target their own decades I reckon.

    alright, how about we make it random for the freedom, but constrict it down to 11 eras for difficulty.

    1877-1899
    1900-1919(though nobody would pick 1910s anyway)
    and 2000-present


    20s through to 90s are all just done by decades.

    What I mean was, you can decide the cut offs, and they don't have to be actual decades so like you did we can have 1877-99 as one 'decade', etc And you can make 11 of these time ranges and after that we can all decide which one to go for when picking in our own strategic order.

    Brilliant. Luckily for us the 40's produced an absolute plethora of ATG talent with enough to go around.

    Don't think it's a coincidence when you consider this is based on debuts. The generation who should have debuted in 1939-45 pretty much all started playing in 1946-48 instead.

    Can't say the same for the 1910s. Players who should have made their debut during the war years generally had to wait until the 1920s, or just never played.

    Let's begin.

    So just to clarify for everyone, there are 11 time ranges now and you must pick one player who made their test debut in each of these 11 time ranges to make your test team.



    1877-1899
    1900-1919
    1920-1929
    1930-1939
    1940-1949
    1950-1959
    1960-1969
    1970-1979
    1980-1989
    1990-1999
    2000-present



    Round 1 everyone gets 16 hours to pick to compensate for people not knowing when this was gonna start but from Round 2 onwards it's only 8 hours per pick.


    And of course, No Bradman


    Round 1 order:

    J_C
    Saint Kopite
    mr_mister
    AldoRaine18
    Red Hill
    OverratedSanity
    schearzie
    AndrewB
    Howe_Zat
    watson
    jimmy101
    honestbharani



    Round 2 order:

    honestbharani
    jimmy101
    watson
    Howe_Zat
    AndrewB
    schearzie
    OverratedSanity
    Red Hill
