World Cup Draft Round - Order, Characters, & Deadlines

Recommended Posts

Now that initial Team Rosters have been formed by community vote, it is time for all coaches to take stock of their roster and decide if this is the best roster for their team. Perhaps you were saddled with a obscure character, or a character you don't like. Perhaps you see a better character available. Whatever the reason, now is your chance to make an adjustment. I'll break this down as simply as I can. 

  1. Find a team you want to be a coach for. 
  2. Join the team. If you have issues PM me or the Manager. 
  3. Teams will be locked from allowing new members tomorrow at midnight until the Draft is over. 

 

  1. The Draft list is your initial pool of characters. Review this list. 
  2. The Farm list are characters that didn't make the initial polls for various reasons. Review this list. 
  3. The Draft order is the order I will come to you for your decision. Find your place in order. 
  4. I will create a poll on whether or now you want to Draft a character, or your Manager can do this. Yes or No. 
  5. If Yes is the majority think about who you will want to choose. Decide as a team. Make sure you have alternates in mind. 
  6. If No you may review the Farm list for the next round. 
  7. Decide who you will release. Captains cannot be dropped. 
  8. Post the selection(s) in the same topic as the Yes No poll. 
  9. I will go team by team using the draft order. 
  10. If I see no coaches I skip the team. 
  11. If I see a No voted as the majority I skip the team. 
  12. If I see Yes I will look for your posted selection. 
  13. I will confirm if it I see a majority opinion and make the changes . 
  14. I will post the changes publicly and update the Draft list removing your new character and adding your old character.
  15. I will go to the next team. 
  16. If you are not ready you will have 24 hours to decide.
  17. At 24 hours if you have not made a decision you forfeit your decision and will be entered as Not Drafting.  
  18. This will continue until I reach the final team. 
  19. After this I will go to the No's and Not Drafting teams in the same order and I will ask them if they want to select a Farm Character.
     
  20. After I have gone through all remaining teams, the Draft is over and I will reopen teams to new coachyou deces. You may switch at this point should  you wish. 

 

Trades

Once this process is finished Trades open. Team Managers can propose trades directly with another Team Manager if there is unanimous consent. Captains cannot be traded. This will have it's own topic.

Important

If there is only one coach (other than me) I am not posting a thread. That would be silly. Just tell me what your decision is when I come to you. If you are the only one in your team and haven't been granted Manager permission, let me know pls. 

 

In the situation there is a tie, Managers become solely responsible for the decision.

PST, because Poniverse is PST. 

So right now, it is Sunday in PST. Tomorrow is Monday. When the clock hits 12:00 AM Tues 7/3/2018 I'm shutting the invite and join function off.

Later removed characters, unless there is a special case (like Grogar).

This is taking place in Luna's Dream Realm. Zombie Pones can be imagined to have cotton teeth, feast on peppermint bark, and be instantly subdued by a quickly played Hall & Oats ballad.

Just a hint at what to expect going forward. ;)

I sear, I don't know what team to join. I wanted to join Hollow Shades and try to get Tempest on the same team as Stygian, but with that rock as captain, I'm really not sure what to do Not to mention so many other favorites, I can't choose.

I might join Hollow Shades anyway cause I'm so partial to that dude though.

There really isn't any imperative for you to rush and join before the roster change. I mean you would be some control over some roster changes, but I am reopening the teams the moment I am done, so if you are unsure you can take your time and thing about it.

Addendum to the rules 

- A team can trade a draft pick for a non-captain character, so team can have two picks. This would effectively create a new round of drafts.

A word of caution though. The World Cup matches need to begin this month or it is going to spill into other events that I'm planning for later this year. I am only one person. If that happens I will have to trim some of my ideas for the final 16 and beyond. 

 

Draft trades offers can be made to teams only during  your window. If you want to propose a trade with an empty team I will automatically approve the request, however .... the draft pick we be used only to fill the spot based on the highest available voted character within that orginal teams group to prevent the possibility of the appearance of collusion. If there are no longer any players available within the original group, It will be a random selection.

So once each team is done selecting, you move on to the next team? Okay. Now I understand how it works. :muffins:

Can ponyville make a new character to the team 

I'm not sure I follow. When it is Ponyville turn you can drop anyone but Twilight for any character on the Draft list. You can pass and wait for the Farm round. You are your team's coaching staff need to decided together on what you should do.

I could've told you that. 

Wonder if The Cult Of Generosity will drop their draft pick in favor of getting Nightmarity. 

Could one team even handle so much fabulousity?

Guys, as we keep moving through this you need to have already started discussions on drafting. Being a last minute contrarian can throw a wrench into the whole World Cup and undermine the sense of community that I intended the teams clubs to create. If this goes beyond a set time .... all of the last six months won't have mattered.

I’m sorry, but I don’t understand what this means. Can you please rephrase or give me an example?

Sure. Say you decide to trade your Draft Pick with Saddle Arabia. You want Flurry Heart. Saddle Arabia has no users as Coach so I would automatically give you Flurry Heart and you would drop whatever player you want Flurry Heart to replace. I would then pick another player from the Draft list to fill Flurry Heart's position. The order I would use to complete Saddle Arabia would be the character who got the highest number of total votes so far, who was also in Saddle Arabia. If that is impossible because the list doesn't have any other characters originally from that group, I would pick the character with the highest total votes who wasn't on a team. In this case .... Thorax. 

 

 

Manehattan elects to Draft Coco Pommel for Vapor Trail. 

Cloudsdale == > On the clock

Cloudsdale elects not to draft.

Woop well I will be in it, with my zombie comrades eating the peppermint bark in everfree forest. Though if the ball was ever made from anything peppermint flavour, we might want to try and chew that or kick it around, inventing zombie football in the process.

 

You can stop me with a very fast played ballad or a simple violin solo would also suffice, though you would get lots of sleepy zombies at such a point, though we are good ball hogs.

 

so do i get a place?

Good pick @Ganondorf8 I'll make the changes now.
