    Agree with Howe's concern. Thanks Jimmy for adressing it.

    Alrighty then, I think we may as well kick things off here. To make up the numbers I will also participate. And so with random seeding, the tournament bracket looks like this.



    The following lucky souls have won the toss, you may choose to pick first, or choose the draft parameters. Once the winner of the toss has made their choice, those who lost the toss may either make their first pick (if their opponent chose to set the draft parameters), or set the draft parameters if obliged to do so. Only when the parameters of the draft have been set can the battle begin.

    Ankitj - H
    Howe_zat - H
    Magrat Garlick - T
    JOJOXI - T
    morgieb - H
    Milenko47 - H
    AndrewB - H

    -

    To clarify:

    - Each 1 v 1 battle will commence once the person who has person who has rights to the opening pick makes their first selection, from that point on the draft clock is active.

    - 12 hour time limits apply to to each individual battle, per turn.

    - One selection per turn.

    - If you are required to do so, please ensure the draft parameters you set will ensure both parties are able to select a full, conventional XI.

    - No Bradman!

    - Voting will commence at the end of the round once all teams have been selected.

    Good luck everyone. If there is anything that is unclear at this point please bring it up. Let the games begin

    Nah bro, as I said in the post above, only when the parameters of the draft have been set can the battle begin. So you need to decide to either choose to pick first (in which case Teuton will be obliged to choose the parameters), or choose to set the parameters yourself. Any picks made by anyone before their respective parameters have been set will be considered invalid.

    Hmm rules say 1 pick per turn. Is that unfair?

    To clarify is going pick by pick unfair.

    Yeah, only one pick per turn. Howe might have seen Bresnan's name & gotten confused. He'll have to decide who he wants to keep.

    Nah I’m erroneously thinking of how drafts have been done elsewhere. Edited
