Can someone quote me once its my turn? I'm on vacation in Gran Canaria right now and my wifi connection is utter crap, so I most likely wont notice when its my turn unless the app gives me a notification.

Will do. Would a PM suffice?

Play nice Ted, let's not start that again ;)

I'm actually curious to see if people will adapt their formations after a season where systems with 3 CBs and 2 versatile WBs have grown in popularity considerably. I'm wondering if that will affect the stock of CBs this year.

If i recall correctly, he all but asked for it. I'm just saying we should have given it to him. :dontknow:

By the way, let's take a moment between the draft and the tournament to sort out the minor issues that had come up last year. I can't name any of them off the top of my head but there were a few. Do you have a link to last year's discussion thread?

I'm actually fine with the last pick. Always having 2 picks at the same time is pretty nice and it saves some time since I don't have to check if it's my turn all the time.

Let's do this!

Off the top of my head, there was a little confusion about the posting of tactics before matches, and the tie-breakers.

In regards to the tactics, basically some people posted new tactics before every match-up, some didn't, so voters weren't entirely sure which tactic to vote for. In one case I had to make a tactic for one team since they had taken so long and were holding the game up, and the polls went up slightly staggered. This one I'd like some discussion on, as I'm still not sure of the best way to go about it.

There will be no issue with the tie breakers this time around. It's head to head -> goal (vote) difference -> total votes.

There was also a minor issue in regards to voting for yourself. I told people not to do it last time around but obviously had no way to enforce it, so some did it anyway. Some said everyone should just vote for themselves by default. I'm fine with whatever, if you want to vote for yourself go for it.

Lets wait until after mercgold picks to start the clock since we never announced a start date and we have plenty of time to do the draft.

11th pick. This could be quiet difficult actually, logic says go for an attacker first but i may have to take a midfielder if everyone has the same strategy as me.

how hard is it though. Surely pick 1 is Messi or Ronaldo and then pick 2 is whoever doesn't go #1 (at least i'd say so).
