History Tag Team Draft Sign Up/Discussion Board
Itís time again to do another history draft game. The winner of the last game, HollywoodNightmare and runner up, AlienBountyHunter chose not to run the next history draft so they gave me the okay to run this one. Got to say thanks Chan Hung, AlienBountyHunter, and Jamjam22 for being great hosts in this game, hope I can make this as good as the other ones. Also make sure to check out Awsmashís Auction draft which is similar to this. I will be in that one and it looks like a lot of fun when it gets started.
For the people that played this game before, it is really the same game with some changes. For the people who havenít played before, what we do is we draft wrestlers from all wrestling promotions, present and past; alive and dead wrestlers all can be drafted. And we take the wrestlers we drafted and we write PPV cards using our roster. And we compete against other peopleís cards, then users on WF will then vote on whose card is the best. And we do this until we are down to one winner. In the past we have had 1 on 1 matches and sometimes triple threat matches. This time it will be 2 on 2 matches. This will be the first ever Tag Team History Draft. That means every player in the game will be matched up with another player. You will take your roster and combine them with your partnersí roster and work together to make a card. An example would be AlienBountyHunter and Chan Hung will work on a card together and will plan out which matches would work best for their card. That means one of ABH wrestlers can face one of Chans wrestlers on the card. There are spots for 16 people in this game. There will be 16 rounds in this draft, so that means there will be 8 rosters of 32 wrestlers each. I know 32 wrestlers is a lot for a roster but that means there will be more matches on the card. And like last time, when the draft is over, you can get rid of as many wrestlers off your roster as you want and someone else can pick them up. Also for the first time, there will be a consolation bracket for the teams that lose in the first and second round. I will get into more detail on that later in the rules.
PICKING A PARTNER
You guys can pick your own partner. I know there might be people mad if you were paired up with someone you donít like, so you guys can pick your partner. If someone signs up and they donít have a partner, then I will pair guys up. When you find a partner, send me a PM of who you are going to partner up with. Also come up with a creative name for your tag team. If you donít come up with a name for your tag team, then I will.
This draft will be very similar to the other ones that weíve done. One difference is you and your partner will be opposite from each other in the draft. For example letís say ABH and Chan are a team. ABH has the 1st pick in the round so that means Chan would have the 16th pick in round. Whoever has the 2nd pick in the draft means his partner would have the 15th pick, and so on and so on. We will work on the order when we have the 16 people.
This will be a snake order draft. It will go from 1-16, and next round will go 16-1, and back to 1-16.
You will not be able to be able to draft tag teams like the last draft. Since the rosters are bigger, drafting tag teams as one pick will be allowed.
Same rule as the all of the other drafts, if you pick a wrestler like Mick Foley who has multiple gimmicks, you can use all of their gimmicks. Once some picks Mick Foley, no one else can pick Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and Mankind.
When it is your turn, you will have up to 8 hours to draft a wrestler. If the 8 hours are up then the next person can go ahead and make their pick. BUT, if you havenít picked within the 8 hours yet and your partner is online, he can pick for you. So make sure you two work on a roster together so your partner wonít be upset if he drafts someone you donít like.
Also the last draft went very quickly when everyone sent in lists of wrestlers they want on their roster. Make sure we can do that again, so send me your list of guys you want and send a list of wrestlers to your partner so they could draft for you.
If you want to do a trade, both partners of both teams to send me an PM when you want to do a trade. If one of the partners doesn't respond back to the offer within 24 hours then it is up to the other partner if he wants to do the trade.
I know we talked about doing were we face every team at least one time and the top teams face each other at the end. I just think it would be easier to just do what we did in the past. Here is another thing that is new; there will be a consolation bracket as well. So if you lose in either round 1 or 2, you will be put in a consolation bracket and have a chance to be a consolation winner.
Our bracket will look pretty similar to this.
Since the rosters will be bigger this time, you have to have a minimum of 10 matches on the card.
You will be allowed to do 4 gimmick matches. Gimmick matches include matches like tables, ladder, TLC, cage, hell in a cell matches. I don't count tag team and triple threat matches as a gimmick match.
If you win your match will be able to pick 2 wrestlers of your opponentís roster and put them on your roster. That also means you will have to drop 2 wrestlers off your roster. This goes for the consolation bracket as well. If you are in the consolation bracket, you canít use the 2 wrestlers that your previous opponent took away from you; the two wrestlers that your opponents dropped will be added to your roster.
Here is an example. Lets say ABH and Chan defeat the team of HollywoodNightmare and Jamjam22. ABH and Chan pick up Stone Cold and Triple H off of HM and JamJams roster and they drop Kofi Kingston and R-Truth. That means Kofi and Truth go to HM and Jamjams roster for the consolation bracket.
That means the teams in the consolation bracket will not have as many top star wrestlers as the other main bracket.
Well that pretty much sums it up. If there any questions just PM me or ask it in the thread and Iíll try to explain it to you as best as I can. If there are any newcomers to this games, they will probably lot of veteran players in the game you could ask to. So I need 16 people to play this game. Just reply in this thread if you want to play.
