Default Nation-state draft 2?

Anyone interested and any input on changes in criteria?

Draft selection is too small. Waste of time.

what we should do is take the nation states drafted previously and pit them against eachother in allout warfare, and we somehow decide who will come out on top

OK blondie... you've had your fair share of positive comments on the pete thread... so just cool off now, OK? No need to start taking part in normal threads as if your opinion matters... cause ... it doesn't.

I'd be down.

Also, I was thinking about a slightly different draft, something like "draft 10 current persons that you'd send as a delegation of the Earth to an interplanetar assembly", if that has any sense at all - I've been watching too much Star Wars lately

that could actually turn out to be pretty bad ass.. particularly if people were too go off the grid and select some eccentric types..

'relax baldy' ...

... shows how immature you are. I gave you a compliment. You should be appreciative and keep quiet.

Instead ... you talk shit. Was I wrong in thinking you stepped your 'posting game up' ... I'm starting to take that statement back.



Some kids... you give them an ounce of praise and they think it's a barrel.

I like this idea. I'd be down.

I'd also like to do a nation-state draft, though I'm somewhat apprehensive, I don't have a terribly large knowledge of historical figures, at least compared to some other posters here.

Edit: I also know MasterDurant wanted to do another NBA draft. If others want to do that then I'll set it up and shit.

My thoughts on the delegation:

Pros: we can maybe also choose a certain item, resource, art to also draft to bring.

Cons: biased against military minded individuals, takes away the aspect of competing against your other managers since you wont worry about having to defend against them, no geographical areas to draft.

Biggest pro is that it would be something new instead of a "sequel".

I agree that we would lose the competition between ourselves but this is what has also happened in many recent drafts (writers, cinema, art, sneakers?)

Also, I don't think that removing the geographical aspect is a relevant setback, though it did add a nice tweak in the original draft.
