This just isn't true, at all. It should be like 15-30 seconds to pick a player, but then its a live bid where everyone can bid/repeat bid for a set amount of time. You give 45 seconds (recommended) or 1 minute max to bid on a player (LIVE BID) and then bam, bidding on that player is over.Teroh wrote:I don't like the bidding system. Imagine it takes 1 minute for an owner to pick a player, then 2-3 minutes for the bidding and logging of the player. Then we move onto the next player, repeat. I'd guess you'll end up taking about 4 minutes on average per player. Times that by ~90 players, that's 360 minutes. 6 hours for a draft. I think that's nuts. I'd much rather come up with a better draft system where you still select your players, with owners seeded in their proper rounds. I'm not a first round player, and I shouldn't have to pick myself in the first round. I'd be happy to accept what round other owners agree I should be picked in as my own pick (3rd,4th,5th,w/e).
We did this for 5+ weekly tournaments for Star Strikers and it never took more than an hour after the start to draft (that was for usually 8-12 teams, 4 players per team). If you are drafting 10 teams of 8 people (7+captain), thats 70 selections. So 30 seconds max to pick a player x 70 = 35 minutes + 1 minute x 70 players = 70 , for a grand total of 105 minutes. 2-3 hours from start to finish should be pretty doable.
