A Fantasy World Cup
A Current Players Draft
A Nationality Draft
As always, this thread turns into a battle of smack talk between Raoul and The Turk/pauliec.
Regarding the draft, I feel as if it should be decided via poll.
The choices will be the fantasy world cup, a current players draft, and a nationality draft.
In the world cup, each participant would be assigned one country, and create the best possible team using players only from that country.
ND=Everyone picks from one country
WC=Everyone gets one country to pick from
Sign me up for a current player draft.
Wait, wait, I'm confused here.
Someone explain to me the theory behind the fantasy WC draft. Will we each be drafting players of any nationality, the only restriction being they have played in a WC, OR will we each be randomly assigned a country (i.e., I draw Argentina, Raoul draws England, Turk draws Italy) and we have to put together the best players to fit that team.... or is that the theory behind the nationality draft?
Man I'm confused.
I voted for the current player draft, mainly because I have problems with the other two formats
A fantasy World Cup woudl be fun, but it wouldnt really be a draft, which takes away half the fun of the whole exercise, as there will be no competition for players.
Conversely, a single nationality draft involves way too much competition for players, and by the late rounds could be bogged down in mediocrity.
A current player draft, on the other hand, would involve players that everyone should be familiar with who can be easily measure against eachother. It will generate the right sort of competition in the draft, and also feature the fun after the fact of picking between teams of familiar players.
(why yes, I do have my evidence final on Thursday, but procrastination had nothing to do with taking the time to write this post)
I'm really on the fence between WC Draft and Current players.
It is true that part of the fun is fighting for the same players...
