Default Re: Nation-State Draft 3

You have had a great second half. Really like you Hippocrates and Norvig picks. Good combo of Fermi and Sagan as well. A lot of good thinkers, but TJ and I guess Buddha are the only real leaders you have. That could make things tricky.

Lamar Odom
Only going on two additional picks since last time (Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg), I would say you did ok. I don't see how having Zuckerberg will be that big of an advantage, but Steve Jobs isn't too bad. I think I am starting to detect a good potential society forming.

Interesting slew of picks. On the one hand, you got a banker and an economist, and on the other you got two women leaders. I hope you intend for Napoleon to be King, Eva Peron to be queen, and Catherine the Great can be Napoleons fckbuddy. You have an awesome blend of people, and at a quick glance, your team is definitely a favorite.

Good job with Hegel. Definitely an underrated philosopher who doesn't get the credit he deserves. Not a big fan of Cardinal Richelieu, people like him come a dime a dozen. Like the Michelangelo pick and Subutai pick. Don't know how well he will fit into the christian society, but it would be fun to find out

Your last three picks couldn't have been further apart, but they filled a few gaps in your team nicely. Turing could form a bridge between Keynes, Hayek, and Rothschild while adding intellectual discussion. Don't know much about Saladin, but you definitely needed some spirituality on your squad. Don't love the Monty Jones pick but don't hate it either. Well rounded team that could become extremely good with a solid last two picks.

Anti Hero
Going in to the draft, I didn't expect someone to go with such a specific group of people like this. Very bold strategy to pick the best Communism has to offer and form a group around them. I actually like the strategy. Main good thing is that it is less hypothetical than the other countries, which can help greatly in arguments. Biggest problem is the flaws that Communist Russia and China have had. With a proper argument for your case, you should be in the running as well.

Smart pick with Rajan, as you needed an economic specialist on your team. I like the Walt Disney pick as well. I mean, if you are trying to keep your people happy, who better to do it that fcking Walt Disney? Interesting to see how many computer scientists have gone in the last few rounds. Frankly I thought they were going to go earlier.

Great pick in Augustus. The man who founded one of the most impressive empire in history. Not fond of the Alexander Graham Bell pick. He is smart and a good inventor, but there are still better guys out there. Goebbels pick is very interesting. He doesn't fit great, but he definitely doesn't not fit. I was mildly surprised the Nazi party was left untouched up to this point. Interested to see how you try and incorporate him in.

In a vastly polluted world, keeping the environment safe is key. For that I like your Borlaug pick. Not too high on the Pasteur pick. He was incredible for his time, but I don't think he would bring much to the table. Good snag with Giannini. Always important to have a banker.

like the Zhuge Liang pick. Played Dynasty Warriors a lot when I was a kid and I learned a shit ton about Chinese history based on interest after playing that game. Niels Bohr is a smart dude and a safe pick. Don't like Eleanor Roosevelt pick too much. I think she is overrated, but I guess if you want to use here as an accompaniment to Teddy, it isn't too bad.

Rankings (NOTE: These were very tough to do. Once again, gaps are very small)
