***Future Contenders League*** DRAFT FRED

Recommended Posts

As we are getting close to the end of the year I thought it would be a good time to see if enough people are interested in doing the FCL again or for the first time this year to see what numbers are like.

Was thinking of changing the timeframe from the entire year to just six months.

Rules are below (please list any recommended changes below)

 

RULES

1. Players select one unranked fighter from every division (I will exclude Women's Featherweight for obvious reasons)

2. No picking fighters who are already currently ranked at a weight class and are away to move up or down to another.

3. No fighters who are suspended or injured will be eligible to use. Pretty sure Machida was still ranked in the top 15 when he was suspended even though he didn't get dropped right back in to the rankings when he returned it could produce some unfair advantages.

4. Posters will be given 24 hours to make their pick. If picks are not made in the 24 hour timeframe you forfeit your pick (this will help get the game going reasonably quickly. If we let everyone pick at their own leisure we'd likely be waiting months to get started.)

5. After the initial process of selecting your fighters you can recruit one new UR fighter every week.

6. If you edit your post in any way when choosing a fighter the pick is totally voided.

7. You cannot pick a fighter who has just won over the weekend until the next weeks rankings come out. (this is to avoid people picking up underdogs who be get a big unexpected win and then jump up the rankings.)

8. Winners will be decided by who's chosen contenders can rise highest in to the UFC rankings. They will be measured firstly by who can get the most fighters in to the rankings, secondly by the combined lowest total of all your rankings and thirdly if still tied by who has the single lowest ranked fighter.

I still have no idea how this works, despite the clear instructions 

You are basically just trying to get as many  UR fighters that you think will break in to the top 15 rankings

Got a bit behind on this over Christmas so we will just start off on the Assuncao vs. Morae 2 card at the beginning of February.

 

So hopefully get a few more sign ups in the next couple days and get started.

Right with people joining and leaving halfway through the drafting process last time some picks ended up a little uneven so to avoid all of that this time we will just be going with a straight randomized list of those participating. If you are picking first in one round you will be last the next round. 

  1. Fred_Flink_Stoned
  2. Andy Wang
  3. JSW
  4. Oz
  5. Jolldan
  6. RadLad

I have also randomized the divisions (excluding Women's Featherweight & Men's Flyweight) meaning this will be the order of divisions we draft

  1. Lightweight
  2. Middleweight
  3. Lightheavyweight
  4. Bantamweight
  5. W Flyweight
  6. Welterweight
  7. W Strawweight
  8. Featherweight
  9. W Bantamweight
  10. Heavyweight

Fred you are up first to save this from going on for an age there will be a max of 12 hours between picks if you haven't made your pick by then you are simply passed over and you can make your pick at the end of that draft.

Anyone wishing to join after the draft can do so and make a pick for each division.

So Fred you get us started with your Lightweight pick

Ill play aswell

Why does everyone join as soon as im trying to get it going lol, right you three will be the last picks for the first two rounds of the draft (as it would be unfair if I took away RadLad's first pick) and I will re-do the draft randomizer with you three included after that.

also 12 hours is too long, we wont finish  before the fights saturday which could have draft implications. lets rapid fire this chit

less than 9 hours wouldn't be fair as we are a worldwide community and people often sleep for 8 hours ( not me ,but many do)

and if we tag the next player it helps tigger them i guess...

Quick question though. Wouldn't it work better if players pick fighters from a division of their liking? People that are picking in the middle wont be able to get the best contender at any division.

@Jolldan my pick is BW correct? 

No, apparently everyone has to pick from the same division until the following rd. I tried voicing my opinion, but it fell on deaf ears.

Wait what? I thought he was randomizing divisions so each player picks from their alloted division? Otherwise what's the point of randomizing divisions?

If you'll notice, everyone has picked a lw so far. I think that screws the people that draft in the middle

can you stfu and make a pick please?

 

Really? I've got twelve hours, and I'm working now, and I've only briefly checked the BW division and made a selection. Now I realise it's another fooking division. I will when I get home and I'll tag the next guy. I was only asking a question, if you're going to be a kunt about it then I won't bother next time. Smdh

Well there are 4-5 shoe ins to be in the top 7 of their division that are currently unranked, and if you’re in the middle you won’t get a shot at any of them

I just noticed this now.

There are 10 divisions to pick from and only 8 competitors so it would just be spun as unfair on working out who gets to pick in which order for the last two divisions. At least with this its totally random.

Also with this game im not going to say the draft doesn't matter, but its nowhere near as important as the camp league because a lot of fighters end up in the rankings who aren't even signed yet.
