yeah, and more rounds too
i tried to make the best out of every pick in the last build a label, i thought i came out as top IMO
couldn't find another label that had talent/style in every way. plus they all fit in what i was trying to build. it sucks we couldn't get any results -_-

Slicin
Ctorres
Mecca
Hezi
Fury
Phish

Obviously it's based on personal taste, so these rankings are therefore useless. :lol: At least I got my rankings in. Last time around at least we had some very loose guidelines on what we were judging, this team people just did the draft for the sake of drafting.
