Hot Chick draft prelim (UPDATE - DRAFT IS WED 10/24

UPDATE: So it looked for awhile like we were shooting for this Wednesday, but vfn and Clutch City can't make it then and the rest of you seemed (to me anyway) to indicate that next Wednesday is as good as this one, I'm moving it back to the 24th to accommodate at least vfn. I'll try to get the posts up and start the check-ins by 7 CT, and hopefully we can start drafting at around 7:30.

(Also, Darcouth has dropped out so we're down to 9. Draft order stays the same, just minus him.)

So counting myself, we've managed to fill the arbitrary 10-drafter quota I said I was going to try to fill. Here's hoping we don't have as many of you dropping out on us as we did last year.

Now we need to talk details. First of all we need to come up with a date and time that works for everybody, so hopefully all 10 of you see this and we get that hashed out in the comments below straightaway.

Second, the actual mechanics this year are going to be a bit different. Last year it was pointed out that this should probably be a snake draft, but wishing to avoid confusion I decided to go with a straight order. This year, in the interest of not boning the guys Random.org decides to put at the bottom of the list, I was thinking we'd invert the order every round.

In other words, since we draft in designated subthreads within an LSB fanpost, we'll basically go down the page in the first round, up the page in the second and so on. Assuming there's 11 rounds, this would give whoever goes first and last the benefit of 5 sandwich picks. We could roll with a standard 1-2-3-ext like last year if you guys prefer, but I think this is the way to go.

I'll re-do this if there's any late signups in this thread, but right now the unofficial draft order would look like this:

Now, as to drafting theory: things are going to be a bit different this year. Based on a suggestion by LSU Ranger we're going to spice things up a bit by creating five categories (sports, actress, model, singer/musician, and pornstar) that you'll have to fill a quota in, and by adding a couple free spots to the categories I came up with an actual 11-man "team" we'll all have to fill out with our drafts:

  • C (sports) - 1 spot
  • 2B/SS (singers/musicians) - 2 spots
  • OF (actresses) - 3 spots
  • 1B/3B (models) - 2 spots
  • Closer (pornstar) - 1 spot
  • DH (free) - 1 spot
  • SP (Round 1 draftee/free) - 1 spot

The first round basically remains untouched in theory from what it was last year - there's no constraints on who you can take, the objective being to simply to draft whoever you want the most. The only catch is whoever you take in round 1 can't be applied toward your other quotas, so you can't get a jump on the competition by say, drafting your sports pick in the first round while others are focused on their BPA's.

I think that about covers what I wanted to cover in this post. The other rules, carried over from last year are basically goes-without-saying rules: you'll need to include a picture with each selection, but you need to keep them safe for work. I suppose this year we'll make an minor exception to the first part of that rule if you can't find a SFW picture of your favorite pornstar in time. Oh, and no GIFs. The drafting thread will get bogged down enough as it is with all those jpeg's.

Any other thoughts, questions, late signups... put 'em here. And again, the time/date is kind of entirely up to you guys so I need your feedback on that, at least.
