    Reverse Alphabetic Draft

    Hi guys, time for the reverse alphabetic draft.

    The rules are the same as for the alphabetic draft, except everything is done in reverse alphabetic order. That is, from Z to A.

    The first round player order is determined by the reverse alphabetic order of your forum username at the time of sign up (Milenko47 is going to regret becoming ataraxia ).

    After the first round, the next person in the draft is determined by the most recent players picked. The person who has drafted the player lowest in reverse alphabetic order picks next. A large part of the strategy of those draft is deciding when to jump ahead to snag a marquee player and when to pick a player close to your existing players.

    You may only have one player from each letter (no Sobers and Smith in the same side).

    If you want to pick Bradman, you must pick Mahmadullah and counting Mahmadullah have a minimum of 9 players in your side already. Bradman must be your 10th or 11th player.

    People had a blast with the last alphabetical draft, hopefully this one is just as much fun.

    Who is in?

    Given the importance of each pick, time to pick will be 16h in the first round and 8h in every round thereafter.

    As this is arguably technically a revamp of the Back Draft, I will take it to the court that my username for the purposes of this draft is Milenko47.

    Haha fair enough since you played under that username for the alphabetic draft you will henceforth be known as Milenko47 for the reverse draft.

    That was a joke but nevermind your ruling is fair.

    But in all seriousness, it's only fair that I play as ataraxia in this draft so keep it that way.

    One rule I forgot to mention is that your own picks must be in reverse alphabetic order. You can't pick Pollock and then Smith.
