SIGN UP for EUDL midseason draft!

Post by handsumSnail » Sun Feb 12, 2017 7:38 pm

boring text:

As with every season of EUDL so far, we're gonna have a midseason draft, meaning players that missed opening sign up, or had time-issues that are now resolved, get the chance to play in the league for the remained of the season. After we close signups, same as at the start of the season, draft is conducted in snake order, but the priority on who gets to pick first is now determined by season standings, meaning teams that are struggling atm get dibs.

important stuff:

As of this moment we're officially opening the sign-ups for EUDL midseason draft! Link is the same as before:

So go ahead, finger bang that apply button, what are you waiting for, you know you want to!

Please restrict experienced players from the draft... If they wanted to play, they should've signed up at the initial draft.
Otherwise what's the point of trying early on, if you're gonna get a stacked team for the remainder of the season.

Plus, it removes those couple players in zhl/zhpl who played the entirety season to earn that extra spot.

I agree with this, please no mid season draft next season.
We must believe in luck. For how else can we explain the success of those we don't like?

Plz no discriminating rules! :x

I'm sure that when the midseason draft was first introduced - there was nobody (that put a thought in it) who didn't see the balance/fairness issues.
But at the end of the day - eudl is a fun event in the community while staying competitive. Those who make the rules have to balance it out :shock:
The pick order in the mid season draft event is from the last team to the first team in standings.
At the last round of the Mid Season draft team or teams with the least of amount of players will choose twice.
I do believe that this IS the best possible balance between staying fun and staying competitive.
Those who think it's better to have no midseason draft at all - you guys are too competitive. You no fun :(

Edit: One a second thought. EUDL is ~100 players having to live with the decisions that 8 owners made on Day1... for months...
Midseason draft fixes that in a way. So I like it even more now.

It can fix balance when there is a super weak team, getting a good player.
Example: Anon's Team getting Asgarr in Mid Season draft.
Didn't pay off as the whole team disbanded shortly after but there were chances.

But when we have somewhat balanced teams right now it might indeed break the balance to get former T1 players in a team to stack it up.
This will (especially in the playoffs) just break the balance at some point.

an experienced Player could have signed up for the regular draft too and make clear that he wont be able to participate until a certain Point of time. so they could have been drafted earlier accordingly to their value and not to jinx the whole season from now on.
but w/e i cant think of any Player right now who could have Impact on the actual main league besides maybe doudles and who isnt signed up already
