  3. yea 2 is fine...and randomizing it kinda takes the fun out of the whole "draft" thing but it is what it is...has a decision been made then?

  4. I have the teams picked on PLB but not posting them for another hour or two until I know 100% that the PLB snake method isn't argued by anyone in it and wants to back out, etc. I think this is fair though and as random as anything else.

    PLB is pretty random and just a titch fairer than pulling names out of a hat, at least now there should be no excuses for "how my shitty team out of a hat was"

    Teams will be added to OP

    +1 to everything. Please use the randomizer Gags had linked to.

    Id rather teams be random then PLB method. Some of the higher PLB guys joined this without intention of playing all the events if I am not mistaken. (edit - foutight is the only guy i can find in the thread who said this but still.... whomever gets him as there top plb player is at disadvantage since he said he wont be putting in volume. )

    Winner take all too imo but ok for 2 paid. Fuck 3rd place.

  12. I am not doing it again, and already picked teams using PLBs. If going with the hat method, then jtj will have to do it. I don't care, since I am not in the contest, but impartially speaking, I don't really see how this is less fair than random since you wont wind up with 3 top 11 PLB players on the same team this way. Maybe I am missing something though.
    Add wackyJaxon to Rail
  13. yeah not sure how PLB is unfair, i'm fine with doing it the way it's already done
     
    Add I Drastiq I to Rail
  14. Prefer the original method of a snake draft and nothing else really, its what makes this fun for me and the fairest. Random is w.e. when you are a good player but middle of the pack or lower than its not as much

  15. It doesn't matter who does it, its a matter of copying and pasting the list of names here http://www.random.org/lists/

  16. Move me into In favour of PLB as i think it is probably the fairest for everyone, thanks

    We should have a time limit on this vote. Perhaps 5pm? To avoid one side just waiting to be in the lead and saying ok its settled.

  20. looks like 4-3, since sqydro never said random was preferred. And maybe 5-3 if you consider that donkabomber prefers plb, but said it doesn't matter and just wants it done.

  21. the problem with PLB is that some sickos that dont put much volume are going to be ranked really low since they rarely play anymore but are going to grind hard during SCOOP . the other problem is that I am ranked decently but am not going to play much so my team would be slightly at a disadvantage like GotSkills mentionned.

    So if we are voting , I would vote for RANDOM teams but really I dont care that much either way.

    Pretty excited to see the teams and pretty excited to start grinding SCOOOOP

    glgl everyone

    Seems to me this means its preferred to him.

  23. hmm i'd like to change my vote to random. foutight's convinced me
    Add donkab0mber to Rail
  24. So i say we close the voting at 5pm est since thats when the draft was supposed to be.

    upadated in my quote post above. voting is at 6 - 4 in favor of random

  25. I think the people that prefer the PLB method are less animated by the others, so probably best for jtj03 just to do it random to keep the most people happy even if you might wind up with some fairly sick teams and others that won't have a players in the top 11 plb wise on their team. GL all.

    Either way not popping back into this thread until tomorrow to update the OP with the teams that are posted by jtj later today.

  26. Move me over to plb's, its already done, and I really dont understand what all the fuss is about over a 100 dollar comp....its not like the fields sizes are gonna be tiny and there arent that many people in here that suck and have no clue what they are doing....its already done as well....I can understand some of the higher ranked guys not wanting this and hoping to get paired up together thru a random draft but thats just withered on their part.

    Ill check back for an update gotskillz in 45 minutes, see where we are at with the vote on what the majority wants. At 330est I will post teams either by the list I have or doing a random team generator.

    It is not that. Read foutights explanation.

    Updated count is 6 -5 in favor of random.

    It is irrelevant that it is already done imo, if it was done arbitrarily without support of the majority of people in the comp

    Wacky, not saying you would, but pls dont tell anyone what team they would be on in your method, so it does not influence there vote.
    If you have told anyone, then i suggest if that method wins it gets reseeded.
    If you have not mentioned any team info to anyone, then we can just take your word for it and go with what you have already done, in the event that method wins the vote.

  28. I have intentionally not posted the teams for this reason.

    I do think if the vote is a tie to go random since the people that have posts PLB won't be upset if its random, while a few people that voted for random might be upset if its PLB.
