16 teams is way too many. 8-10 is about right. I just did an draft with 8 and it was hard to find forwards...

Ok, that seems reasonable, so I set it to 10 (we're at 9 already).

Also changed it to 60 seconds at Netley's suggestion so that it won't take forever.

Now for Date/Time of draft - it's 2 am for BoomXhaka, and at an awkward date/time for BP.

I set that hour so that VSB could make it, but he's not playing, so Xhaka and BP, if I moved it forward 3 hours to:
1 pm East Coast US time, it would be
6 pm London time, and
11 pm Dhaka time.

Would that allow everyone to participate?
Or would Sunday be better, assuming nobody is at work - I can shift some of my students around if need be.

Open to suggestions and bear with me as I figure this stuff out.

So:

Noon East Coast US
5 pm London
10 pm Dhaka

Does that suit everyone?


Just changed it to 30 second draft intervals

10 managers, 15 players:

10 x 15 x .5 = 75 minutes, if we all take the maximum time per player selection.

So we'll be done in under an hour.

Comments?


And who is "Ben Dover"?

If there are S11 regulars who want to join, gotta give them priority - we are at 9 at the moment.

We have 10 right now, plus you and RAPID - get four more, and we'll have two groups of 8, which is supposed to be ideal.

Ah yer all on here. laugh.gif Tried a mock 30 sec draft with 6 yesterday, wow, got in a right muddle. Need a proper watchlist, manual dexterity and basic grasp of what is really happening with the clock & order, struggled.

Oh 10, that makes it easier, a watchlist of 150 guarantees you won't get Costa, like I did! laugh.gif

9 AM Pacific works for me, but I think :30 is a bit too short... I'd foresee many undesired autopicks occurring. :60 may be better.
