Madden 18 Team Draft Options Vote
Welcome back madden fans. Can all 32 users for the upcoming madden 18 league please review the 4 options below and vote as to which option you would prefer for the upcoming team draft. If you have any questions, fire me a PM and I will get back to you. The poll will close at 7am on Monday the 7th of August.

Option 1: Activity and user skill based restrictions

After reviewing last years team draft, an alarming issue was found in that many users with top picks left early or were inactive for a long stint. Out of the top 10, 7 left early or were inactive.

So to help try and limit this from happening again, a greater emphasis will be put on rewarding the following active users who stuck around and were valuable users of the last league.

1. TheRockJr25
2. danialbe23
3. eliteblackmamba
4. aooi
5. Sharky
6. lakculv
7. Zimmers
8. Bretty
9. Shrubo21
10. ArtMonk
11. Barnzy
12. Star-Lord11
13. archibaldmayhem
14. Jake
15. dperry16
16. Flaps
17. Cruz
18. Speedy
19. Papi

The above users were identified as being active from day one, as such the following restrictions apply.

Users who appeared in a conference championship cannot pick until after pick #6 (Star-lord11, Eliteblackmamba, Shrubo, Zimmers, Lakculv)

Users who won a Super Bowl cannot pick until after pick #10 (Sharky)

There are other vets of oze, however they are not included in the list above for the following reasons:

1. Did not play last madden
2. Left early last madden/extended period of inactivity
3. Joined late last madden but had 2 seasons experience.

These users are restricting from picking in the top 10 of the team draft.

1. Arman
2. Marty
3. Zim Jr
4. Mick
5. Mil
6. Upup
7. Chad
8. Smiths
9. Dsd
10. Qld
11. Tezza

The following users are new and therefore are not eligible to pick until after pick 16.

1. Crunchy hobo
2. Robertsma

Option 2: User skill based restriction

This option focuses on using the same model as last season, whereby players would be restricted based on skill level last madden and being a new user. As such the following restrictions would apply:

Users who appeared in a conference championship cannot pick until after pick #6 (Star-lord11, Eliteblackmamba, Shrubo, Zimmers, Lakculv, Mick, Marty)

Users who won a Super Bowl cannot pick until after pick #10 (Sharky)

New users who cannot pick until after pick #16 (crunchy hobo, robertsma)

Option 3: No restrictions on team draft besides new users

The only restriction would be new users cannot pick until after pick #10 (crunchy hobo and robertsma)

Option 4: fan draft and team draft run together

This option involves users being allowed to use their fan team, whilst holding a team draft for the people who either don't have a favourite team or don't want to use them. Admins will determine if a user is a recognised fan of that team and not just attempting to obtain a good team.

To help balance this out, users who elect to pick their fan team will be required to forfeit their 2nd round pick in year 1. If the team doesn't have a 2nd round pick they will forfeit their 3rd and 5th round picks in year 1.

If for example multiple users are fans of the eagles, a random generator will determine who gets to use that team.

The rest of the users will conduct a team draft once a lottery is run to determine order. To reward the teams who pick late in the draft, they will be awarded the forfeited picks by the users who selected the fan teams.

An example is that 10 users select fan teams. As such a team draft is run to determine the teams of the remaining 22 users. The bottom 10 users in the draft will obtain the forfeited draft picks as a reward for being the users who drafted later.

Pick 32 in the team draft will get the highest forfeited pick in the 2nd round, pick 31 gets the next highest pick in the 2nd round and so on.

This option allows fans to use their teams and likely increase the longevity of the league, whilst rewarding those who pick late in team draft.

New users (crunchy and robertsma) will be restricted from selecting their fan teams, so they must enter the team draft.


Just a reminder to users who vote on option 4 as they want to use their fan team. YOU MUST BE A RECOGNISED FAN OF THAT TEAM.

Anyone who the admins have doubts over will face questions from the admins. We don't want people claiming to be a fan of a certain team just so they can use them in madden.

In other words, don't be a Dick.

Forgot to put in option 4 that new members will not be granted the fan team option for obvious reasons. I've since added it in.

RE: Madden 18 Team Draft Options Vote
Just to clear, if option 1 wins are we still able to trade draft picks to switch teams like last year's rules dictated with draft picks and admin and divy permission?

Jake has come up with a good option in chat.
I'll let Jake explain how it works but it gives everyone a fair shot at the team they want and has a draft component for those who miss out.

Can we have it added to the poll before a final decision is made?
