Football Manager Draft Rules of the Game - A classic snake-format draft game. Each participant picks 18 players squad. - Instead of a criteria (eg. all-time Europe, World Cup, etc) you will pick players from a custom database, found here: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/0B3S2cmjqIgJZWmZkem9XQ0JmVmM - Instead of posting your tactics and vote on the best team, your teams will compete against each other on the Football Manager 2017 engine. Database - The database includes over 400 football legends for you to choose from. - The database should cover players of every different roles and styles, however, there is not enough players of every style, to force style scarcity. - The players' profiles have been done to the best of my ability, but is still up for change. Anyone who JOINS the draft is allowed to contribute to database changes (including adding new players), up to the point where the draft begins, where there will be no more changes. - Players attributes explanation can be found at: http://www.guidetofootballmanager.com/players/player-attributes - Players Preferred Moves explanation can be found at: http://www.guidetofootballmanager.com/players/player-preferred-moves Gameplay - A tournament will be set up, and games will be played each week. The double-elimination tournament will have a UCL format where it starts with a group stage, before going into knockout with two brackets. - Before each game week, you must send in your tactics and starting lineups for the week (a tactical form will be provided for you to fill out). - Failure to hand in your tactics will result in an automatic 3-0 loss. Advantages Other than the fact that we haven't had a draft in a while, I think this draft addresses two of the major weak points in other drafts: 1. People rate players differently. This can cause frustration as you have no idea how other people rate the players in your team. I know some people even draft in such a way where they pick popular players, rather than players they think are better but less well known. With a database, even if you think players are over/underrated, at least there's transparency and you can clearly see how the players are rated in the game. 2. The voting part is easily the least fun and most tedious. People usually don't enjoy it too much, and the game usually feel likes it's 'over' at that point. In this draft, there's actually gameplay after the drafting is done. You will actually get to utilise the teams you so carefully draft.
