Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

As we prep for the sprint to the finish here, there are a couple of notes I'd like to make really quickly.

First, the Key Committee had a little bit of turnover; Brian Maher is replacing BrennanB.

Second, we are down to the last 5 days of drafting, but they will be packed! 3 drafts per day will be the norm this week. Hang in there, if you can get through this you can get through build season.

Third, I plan to open Waiver #3 As Soon As Possible, possibly even as early as tomorrow. I may be "less available" on Friday than I thought... But fear not, we will get this one done before Kickoff. After Kickoff, the next activity draft-wise will be after build season when Waiver #4 (to be scheduled) happens.

Happy Almost New Year (you know, that weird holiday that falls on January 1?)!

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

In preparation for Waiver #3, I've been doing my usual hunt for missing and waiver teams. There's quite a few out there in both categories. Waiver teams will be listed in that thread, not here, folks.

The MISSING teams are (with their owners):
Code:
Central Valley       1553 (DFrostU), 4904 (TBC)
Great Northern       1714 (FIRST Pick), 7300 (Cup of Joe)
Utah                 2465 (Hammerheads)
St. Louis            2838 (Cup of Joe)
Kansas City          3082 (NASUH)
Palmetto             3459 (WCNC)
Rock City            4490 (QD), 4764 (FIRST Pick)
SBPLI #2             5202 (TSIMFD)
San Francisco        6039 (FIRST Pick), 6935 (Cup of Joe)
Lone Star Central    6133 (Blucifer)
Shenzhen             6354 (NASUH), 6980(DFrostU)
Arizona West         6478 (FIRST Pick)
Monterrey            6853 (QD)
Las Vegas            7057 (Hammerheads)
El Paso Tier 2       7140 (Hammerheads)
Istanbul             7304 (Hammerheads)
Hammerheads and FIRST Pick are tied for the most questionable decisions on the list, with 4 each; Falcon already cleared their missing list.

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

TBC has the basis of an auto-scorer complete. My goal is to have some sort of method to auto score and live update a sheet and log the points. Not sure what QD is/was working on, but if we wanted to collaborate that would probably make sense.

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

jlmcmchl(Jordan) will be taking over the NC draft for me tonight. I have forwarded him lists from the following: Blucifer, TSIMFD, DFrostU, WCNC.

If your name isn't on that list it means I didn't have your list already and you need to send it to him instead.

That's the draft runner (AKA Joe) who is responsible for that.

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

There's a high chance I won't be able to run the final NE draft tomorrow night, and I'm not going to "risk it for the biscuit" (in the words of Joe) because that's not fair to the rest of yall.

I'll forward everything over to jlmcmchl as he's volunteered to run it on my behalf.

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

As a reminder, I'm running NE Day 3 and MAR Day 1 today. I'll have the post for NE up soon.

Players: JosephC had his HDD / SSD array fail today, and is working on rebuilding it. He should be all good to run FiM Day 3 this evening, though it will start late. We'll have an update for you once we know more about the timeframe.


For the time being, please be prepared to forward me/the new runner your FiM lists. In the unlikely situation that Joe is unable to run the draft tonight, the show must go on.

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

We made it! All drafts are complete, at least for the time being.

Upcoming Schedule:
After Build Season, Waiver Draft #4 will happen. I think I've got that on the Saturday or Sunday after Bag Day. This will be a waiver draft, and the last one under "newly added teams" rules (we'll cover the mid-season waivers later).

During competition season, we'll be drafting the DCMPs shortly before they happen. To be determined is just how many drafts MI (4 divisions) and Ontario (2 divisions) get.

Trading: At this point, all teams on the free-agent lists are fair game for trades, or players can trade teams with each other, all that fun stuff.

So, as you might have noticed, there was a hiccup in Waiver #3 tonight due to an edited claim. How we're handling it for Waiver #4 goes like this:
--If the edit comes through before the updated waiver draft status (by timestamp/runner noticing), and does NOT affect any other claims on that update, whoever's handling the waiver updates the update to reflect the change in claim.
--If the edit comes through before the updated waiver draft status, and DOES affect another claim on that update, the message is something to the effect of "we apologize that you can't make up your mind before you post", and no change will be made.
--If the edit comes through after the updated waiver draft status, regardless of effect on other claims, whoever makes it needs to wait for their next waiver cycle.

I'll try to get the mid-season waiver draft rules ironed out before we hit those...

Re: [FF]: 2018 Season Long Fantasy FIRST

Good Evening FF Players!

(Er, early morning for some of you.)

Anyways, Waiver Draft #4 is currently scheduled for Sunday, 2/25, at 7 PM Eastern. I plan to do my darndest to be ahead that deadline with a team list, but it could be a little close.

This will be the final waiver run under the "added team" rules, and the final draft before competitions start.

If you want to make trades with the free agent pools, you have until 2/28, at midnight EST, when all lists lock. After that point, the only way you can make changes to your list is through waivers that will be held weekly, most likely on Tuesdays. Details are To Be Determined but essentially everybody will have a chance to make changes once a week.
