***IMPORTANT: DRAFT WILL BE AT 9PM EST ON 3/3/13***

Well folks, we have one league going for the PS3 users, I say, why not have another?

This time, I'd like for us to utilize a fantasy draft. This will enable most teams to have a relatively equal playing field (unless you risk it with a 1 year contract top player then lose him...) with the talent spread across the league.

League Info

Association Name: fffantasy
Association Password: ffrules
Season Length: 29 games
Difficulty: All Star
League Pace: Fast
Trade Deadline: ON
Allow CPU Trades: ON (If the CPU wants to trade amongst itself, I don't see a reason why not)
Injuries: OFF (I heard that the injuries only occur during played games, so basically only for Users)
Fantasy Draft: Serpentine (I can't control draft order, so this makes it fair)
Playoff Format: 3-3-3-5
Quarter Length: 7 minutes
Sim Quarter Length: 10 minutes (to make it more in line with our games played)

Given that no one team will be 'stacked' with talent, I'll have to install a trade regulation: Teams cannot trade for more than 1 single player on a CPU team per season. If you want to swap players with another user, post it up in the thread and if no one objects, you guys can do so. But I do not want to have the CPU teams being raided.

Also: For the first season, NO TRADING FOR FIRSTS. This is to prevent teams abusing the fantasy draft (I.E. "Good" teams like the Heat and Lakers might end up having the worst rosters, but still don't value their firsts highly at all, while 'bad' teams that have users have 'inflated' value for their firsts). I think after the first season we can trade for a first from another team, but once we get to that point we'll discuss it.

IMPORTANT: This league is intended to be FAST. I will be advancing Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so get your games done as quickly as you can.

ANY user vs user games that get simmed WILL be reset so you guys don't have to worry about that. If you have a CPU game simmed, just post in the thread and I'll erase it so you can play. But I want to have this league rolling along, so get your scouting done every 48 hours and you should be fine.

Free Agency
For a FA bid, you must first post your bid offer in this thread. If no one objects within 12 hours, you can go ahead and make the offer in the game. If the player rejects the offer, you are free to make additional offers at higher rates than what you initially proposed.

During the offseason, I think we should allow only 1 FA signing of 85+ per team. But this is really up for discussion.

Trading
As with FA bids, you must post your trade in the thread for at least 12 hours prior to offering in the game. You may only trade for 1 player on a CPU controlled team per season. The point of the fantasy draft is for people to all get at least 1 star, and build their core the way they want to.

IF YOU MISSED THE DRAFT, YOU MAY MAKE ONE ADDITIONAL PLAYER TRADE IN SEASON 1.

Difficulty
We're going to go with All-Star, or whichever one is the one below Superstar. I'll tweak with the sliders to get the CPU to play well.


Current Signups
RuskieTitan - Ruskie89 - Bobcats
nlesthought - nlesthought - Timberwolves
ravens_rool28 - ravens_rool28 - Nets
JetLife51 - BASEDGOD51 - Grizzly
Ice_Dude_2008 - Bismarcke22 - Warriors

Forgot to add this into the OP, but I will add it once we have determined the best options (and I've created the league).

29 games (Seems like a good amount, play each other team once per season)

7 minute quarters (I liked the flow in the other league, so we'll stick with this)

Playoff Format: 3-3-3-5

Feel like if two users get to the Championship they should really duke it out. I thought about 1 game for the first round, but decided to have each team a home game opportunity.

Difficulty
Here is where I'm uncertain. We're all struggling mightily in the other league in Superstar, but (at least with my team) it is a talent difference. Some of you guys with better rosters could make a better call on whether we should stick with Superstar (and adjust sliders), or go with All-Star and bump up the CPU sliders (so that the CPU can still win games). I really don't want this to become Madden / NCAA where the CPU is just a practice game, but at the same time, playing against a 'cheating' computer isn't fun either. So input on this is VITAL!


Also: Does anyone know if you do a fantasy draft in online association, if you are able to set the draft order like in offline?

Reason I ask is because I would take the list of User teams, randomize it online, then make sure that is the order at the top of the draft.

OR we could do a 'full random' with me not touching the list at all (probably what the option is) and use snake draft. If we decide to manually set the top of the draft, I would then leave that order as is.

So we need to decide the difficulty, and the way we format the draft!

I'm ok with either order.

How does the cap work when doing a fantasy draft?

The only two things I struggle with in the other league are:

-most if not all CPU shots seem to drop

-number of deflections vs user/CPU

Cap factors in after the draft is completed, so you might want to keep an eye on player contracts as well.

The CPU shots and deflections is probably due to the Superstar difficulty. We'll most likely go with All-Star and just really boost up the CPU.

What about those other guys who aren't on FF but are in the other league?

Have them sign up so they can keep up!

IIRC, once I start the league up, it'll be the fantasy draft shortly after, so I don't want to start it too soon and not have enough people in it.

If we can get a solid core of 6-8 players who are active that would be ideal.

Ok, so we've got a Grizz and a T-Wolves player.

I have to drop my father off to work tomorrow evening, but afterwards I am free.

Would everyone be available for a Fantasy Draft tomorrow night?
