yeah drafting increases strategery. It's more fun.

Plus you don't get all the *****ing over the powerhouse teams.

The draft is the main thing that excites me. I've been playing fantasy sports for years, and alwasy thought it would be awesome if they could combine it with video game ball. This is like a glimpse into what a world ruled by adamcz would be like.

It's not a bad idea at all with many teams but with just a few and no draft rules...

[quote=konex]In my 6 years of online leagues (yep, since back in the 56k days), I've NEVER seen a league with more than 16 players succeed...[quote]

You must not have played in very many leagues then. I have played in at least two dozen leagues over the years that have had a every team filled and finished a whole season. Basketball, Football, Baseball, you name it. Now we didnt do 162 games in baseball, or 82 in hoops, but we had 40+ games in each. You must have been playing with some sore losers. The group I have been with has been together since 1999 on Dreamcast. It can work.....

I've been playing since the original 2K on dreamcast as well. Back when we had to enter in stats ourselves lol.

I've personally never seen it and I HIGHLY doubt it (a 30-team league) is gonna work on the first try with a new group of people. It's always best to start out small and go from there once you have an established core of players...

Don't worry Konex, the first season will be short. I'm thinking 16 games, one per week or something like that. If people aren't playing their games, we'll kick them out, and they won't be welcome for season 2.
