Hi guys,hj wrote: Here comes the fun part: we go all fantasy football draft (don't worry if you don't know what this means) on this thing. There would be 2 team captains and we can host a live draft on a replay server or somewhere where the captains draft their players in order 1 by 1 from the sign-up pool until each team has 14 players (starters + alternates). We can make each captain be 'on the clock' for 45 seconds max to make his or her selection. Once the teams are formed, we can have the best-of-3 matches a week or two later.
to open with, this is my first post, the time has come.
I wanted to say that this is a really good idea to bring back exciting and epic matches. Concerning the drafting I believe it works rather like 1-2-2-2-2... than 1 by 1, it is far more fair this way, otherwise the captain starting the draft has a noteworthy advantage.
On another note, I believe that Rikers was a great tradition, even nowadays with EU losing big time. I played one time in Rikers, not sure when, but was great fun even if I knew we would be losing. As an EU player I would be always up to lose against NA in the Rikers games til the time EU rises again. Would be a pity for Rikers to end. I might be totally late on this one, but I recommend holding them both.
