Hey guys, bit of an announcement.

I'd like to announce that Pkbaldy is joining me as an assistant at the Swiss Storm.

You've probably seen him around the P&T boards a little and the St Kilda/AFL boards of late. Please make him welcome!  8)

Welcome PK :D. Yeah these XVs add to the forum and are nice to play and banter.

On a side note, looking most team lists, Iceland and Serbia don't exactly have a deep midfield compared to other team, probably two of the smaller midfield numbers, yet were the two grand finalists. So midfields may not win Euros anymore after the first two seasons :P.

Yep.

yeah, but they give you rookie picks at the end of your last rookie pick, not corresponding to the nat pick given up.

thats correct so if you skip nat 34 than you get the pick after rookie 34 i.e. rookie 35

your players on your rookie list resets each year too so you dont need to worry about using nat picks to upgrade rookies to the senior list.

I'm getting through these and realise that Petrie doesn't even play for Serbia anymore as they traded him for N41 to Belgium. Yet Nrich has named him as a starter since Round 4... And I'm pretty sure we've counted the score for him as Belgium didn't notice either as they only started naming him from Round 7 (the round Nrich failed to name a team the first time).

So Idk if we should do a recount there, but only spotted it now. I'm not Admin as Holz has been busy but yeah it's hard to keep up with who has who as most of the team list pages are outdated so looked at the Trades thread for confirmation. But from now on I know not to count Petrie, but there are other rounds effected by this.

We are missing Cal Sinclair in our list above. We selected him with our second pick in the rookie draft. I think our team page is correct and that one above is not, because it still says Spinking is the coach of the Titans above. Cheers

Otherwise I'll try to get to it again later next week and keep at it to keep the comp alive and running smoothly since Finals in a month!

quick question on subs, since I got a bit confused with last week.

 do we have to name what position everyone's subbing for, or is it just the subs automatically go to their positions, then if there's no sub for the position then it's just whoever was named first on the bench?

Yep, so one emg per position (D, M, R, F) and the sub comes on for their position if needed.

Yep, so one emg per position (D, M, R, F) and the sub comes on for their position if needed.

so there's only one sub for each position?

So if let's say, Ward and Mundy both got subbed, I'd only get one sub even though Mundy would be a utility?

fair call,

im personally against it in the euro as the comp is soo even that its hard to predict where the team will finish the year after. I think with only 14 teams even the team that wins is guaranteed a chance of securing a decent player unlike the comps with more players. Along with that we have the strong rookie draft.

Im personally voting no but I want to hear everyone elses thoughts.

once again the rookie draft can be used to balance out the comp and give hope to those clubs on the bottom,while top teams can still find plenty of players

C Ellis-Yolmen 68 average mid
Jake Kelly 49 average defender
Cameron Wood 58 average ruck
Adam Oxley 74 average defender
Alex Pearce 46 average defnder
Adam Saad 66 average defender
Cameron McCarth 53 average forward
Colin Garland 62 average defender
Adam Schnieder 83 average forward
Joel Hamling 50 average defender

just to name a few. Not as good as usual but still some guys I would want on my list.

23 rounds, 3 byes.

We still have the rivalry round. What do people think on that, keep it or scrap it?

We could start round 1, have the rilvary round and still finish round 21. That way every AFL team is in contention.

Im also going to start the north v south thing up again.

maybe could have something going on in round 22 and round 23.

does anyone have any suggestions.

with the new scoring system getting score up will take 1/4 the time so more time to do interesting things.

I don't mind if the season starts from Round 1 AFL instead of a few rounds in. Pre-season friendlies are just for fun, so if you guys don't want to be impacted as much from resting near finals, guess could just start it earlier.

This is just talks but what do people think about a mid season trade period with a cap of say 5 players moved to go for 2 weeks during the byes?

would obvisouly bring some interest when nothing is going on and allow people to fill holes if players underpeform or get injured.
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: elephants on February 01, 2016, 02:04:44 PM
I don't mind it, we ran it in Americas I think. I'd say a smaller cap though, 5 players might not seem like much but its essentially a third of a starting team.

I reckon 2-3 moves would be more like it imo

Love this idea. Breaks the season up and gives a bit of interest to those not competing for finals.

Consider a mid season draft?  :D
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: LF on February 01, 2016, 03:55:55 PM
Would prefer a mid season draft with no trading of picks allowed and only participate if you want to and maybe a limit of picks since you'd need to delist to take any picks anyway
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: Holz on February 01, 2016, 04:10:28 PM
Mid Season Draft Idea:

There will be two rounds of drafting from leftover players after the rookie draft finishes this year. You will need to delist to be able to enter the draft.

thinking list soley on ladder position at that time or the average of your ladder position last year and this year.



leaning towards a draft rather then a trade period know aswell. Still lots of solid guys will be available and more will identify themselves. like your Oxley Saad types.

im also thinking you can maybe sell your player for picks too. would be 1 for 1 so for example if I had enough of Mathew Buntine but i know people would like him I could auction him off to the highest bidder which might be mid season draft pick 5. So i could pick up a forward or mid instead.

Ladder positions at the time the draft occurs should be used imo and (doubt it would happen) anyone caught tanking for the mid season draft should not be allowed to participate in it.
Two rounds is fine in order to fill some holes if needed and also not sure what you think if you delist a rookie listed player then the player picked in the draft goes onto your rookie list in their place.

I think if you delist a rookie they come on as a rookie. If you delist a senior player they can go to the rookie and you can elevate another senior player.

I would assume the coaches would want at least half these guys on playing lists though. most people have a few injuries at this stage so might be a strategy to keep a LTI upgrade spot open leading into the byes.

I like the idea of a mid season trade period. Should only have 2 or max 3 movements I think though.  Wouldn't mid a draft either, but we should have to delist players to participate in it, yeah nah?

This is downside. It devalues the rookie abit but a max of 28 are taken probably less. There are more then 28 guys i like in this rookie.

Also guys like ahh chee, gray only broke out in the second half.

I don't like that it devalues the rookie either.

Tbh, I'd prefer a limited trade period.... and I know while we're a DT competition, allowing position changes with the AFL fantasy added DPPs would be alright- it accounts for scoring differences due to positional changes and it won't negatively affect anyone's team
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion

what about letting everyone delist as many players as they want, but you can only pick players up from the delisted players.

Whoever delists first gets first  pick (you have to have at least like 6 hours between each delisting or something :P )

Doesn't affect the rookie pool, but could still help people move around depth players without the rookie draft

the idea behind the mini draft is that you can bolster your lines. Its only a max of 2 players so isnt that bad.

so say my number 1 ruck has gone down and no back ups are playing im losing every week because of it. becasue of the removal of the sub vest there is a guy playing scoring 55-60 a week. I drop perhaps an old guy or an injured player and pick him up.

we could make it 1 player not 2 as to not weaken the draft too much.

was originally thinking thats abit of bad luck. But on second thoughts i think a rookie pick after the essendon draft is fair. going before essendon is a little unfair to people who are already hit with an essendon player.

I think the last pick in the draft isnt too much as if anyone wanted someone they could have taken someone. I personally would love another rookie pick as there are some guys i think people missed.

see, people who are hit with an essendon player have had more time to plan and adjust, since they knee about it pre rookie (+ the 2 years before hand), so I would think it's more unfair to go after :P

if you do this (and that's fine), you are setting precedent.

So, what's the call-  any retirement before the season means you can draft a replacement?

If not, then Jaensch should just classify under every other midseason retirement.

And ftr, I thought this was going to happen for a while- it's why my team's essendon clean :P

Yes i realised precedent set. So any retiring before round 1 is a  rookie pick. Once season starts all bets off.

It was a tough call but will be rare a retiring between rookie draft and round 1.

This is the link to the EXV. Please post your teams and scores in the Round 1 tab only. Everything else should be automated (you don't have to add it up, it will do it for you).

Just to re-iterate, go to the "Round 1" tab (at the bottom of the spreadsheet) and then find your team. Post your team like how I did the Greek Titans.
Under the players name, post their score. (I did 10 for Rampe for example). The scores will add up straight away and if you click the "Fixtures" tab, it will have a live ladder and scoreboard each week.

Cheers and good luck for season 2016!

Just added in a spot for your captains score and the HGA. If there is no HGA, you can type nothing, or a 0.

For captain, you can type 0 if you have already doubled your captains score manually, or if you don't want to do that, you can just type your captains non-doubled score in the box there.

These will be moved over one box to the right from next week onwards to avoid clutter. Any feedback on improvements welcomed!

I know we don't have preference lists or a leadership group. Maybe introduce a rule where we get last week's captain?

yeah its last weeks captains

Added the captain score for the Wolves for this round. Shiel was their Round 8 captain so this was carried over into Round 9.

The changes to the ladder (points for) have been made in the relevant threads (as it updates automatically in the spreadsheet).

yeah vic captain. All else fails i just would do the M1 then M2 M3 M4 abit unfair if thats not who you want, but really if you forget captain then its your mistake and its very unlikely your C and VC from last week isnt playing.

we will have North v South but you wont have to do anything in that.

Nige is working on a mini cup which will be a ladder system with smaller teams. This will be optional though so if your too busy you can take the 3 weeks off and then just see the results later.

Pretty proud of the Titans. Taken a team that has finished 9th, 10th, 10th in the past 3 season into potentially a minor premiership this season. Granted there was A LOT of good luck on our side (most teams managed to somehow cop injuries against us), we still put out a competitive score each week even with playing 2 OOP defenders and sometimes an OOP forward throughout the season (thanks Billings, D.Smith and Jamie Elliott)

just need a fit Tom Rockliff or trade him for loads :O

Brodie Grundy is a beast aswell. Probably the most valuable ruck in the comp.

Then you have pick 1 which is probably Will Brodie and then pick 15 and 17 so plenty of opportunity there along with rookie draft 1 which is always decent.

Sweden gets pick 2, 16,18 to rebuild with.

the good thing about the Euro is you cant rebound hard off the bottom even just be drafting.

probably should have clarified this before finals- will draft picks be determined by finals, by ladder position or by overall points

Also, I know I mentioned this earlier this season, but I'd like to see the reintroduction of the sub rule for euros next year- if a player gets injured before half time and taken off the field they can be substituted... it just mitigates the randomness of injuries dictating a game.

Finals determine ladder postion.

I will put the sub rule back in for players who play less then half a game. That rule change i have seen was a mistake.

Is there any rules you think need changing? - the sub rule is coming back

Is there any rules or tactics you would think are interesting.
I do have ideas
-for tagging
- ruck rules so that tall players dont get the 50% OOP

If people are interested I will expand on them if not then we will leave it simple.

Do people want a proper pre season comp?

What are peoples thoughts on the Byes,
- Do we want the weeks off
- Do we want North v South back
- Do we want a comp where we have teams of 2,3,4 and compete to create some alliances? we could have the Hungarian Polar Bears.

With trading slowing down and the national abit away just wanted peoples thoughts and ideas to improve the comp.

I think one of the charms of Euros is the simplicity honestly, I wouldn't want to change anything really.

Don't like the sub rule or any of the other things suggested.

Pre-season comp is fine though, should be used to generate interest in the upcoming season and test where teams stand after their offseasons.

Abolishing the rookie list is a good idea.
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: Holz on October 04, 2016, 11:35:19 AM
ok this is good it was the vibe i was getting.

i agree the good thing about the euro is that it is pretty simple.

I guess the downside is it means in the offseason there isnt much going on as really with 14 teams people dont have many glaring holes and if they do our draft is very strong.

It means though that the Euro drafts are always loads of fun with even the premier getting decent picks.

Ill put in a vote on the sub thing as adding up the numbers i can see that it destroys some teams in particular HGA. You can have a guy go down injured for 5 points when someone on the bench puts up say 70.

but then they count as the lowest scoring player with the second lowest say putting up 50.

thats a hit of 115 points which basically is the difference in a win and a loss.

im thinking

1. No sub rule take the hit
2. Normal sub rule.
3. If people dont like the Sub rule then a subbed player cant be your lowest scorer/
4. the most simple is no sub rule and then maybe like 50 points, 30 points ect... as the Home Ground Advantage.

Preseason comp is happening this year and something in mid season, I actually like the team thing as can see that being lots of fun, but people might want the weeks off so the North v South only really involves 2 coaches but if people are keen the team means everyone is involved just not watching.
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: elephants on October 04, 2016, 11:41:28 AM
Just like in the AFL, there's luck involved.

I do honestly see merit in the sub rule but I don't like it, takes away a lot of intesity/suspense in matches imo.

what do you think about them not getting involved in the HGA.

agree injuries are unlucky but its kinda a double blow if your a Home team.

do think we need to not count them in HGA or have an fixed HGA

I wouldn't mind no sub rule, but HGA minimum is also at least 30 (for example). So if you get an injury for less than 30, you'll still get 30 HGA.

Keep Euro Simple Please xxx

Good discssion though guys, minimum HGA is a great idea. I suppose 50 is about right, its not enough to be an advantage and its not enough to destroy your team. Not many teams will field a player that scores less than 50 in an entire game.

ok so a minimum HGA with the potential of more if all your players score over that number seems fine.

I do like the fact that injuries come into it just like they do in the AFL but the HGA loss was a double compound.

maybe a minimum of 50 and then more if all your players fire.

45-55 seems about the average of the weakest non injured player.
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion

Giles is on the table :P

What was your idea for the ruck rule holz? Like  a player above x height can play in the ruck for like 0.8x rather than 0.5x points or something?

I personally wouldn't mind the reintroduction of the sub rule. I feel like injuries impact euros more than an actual afl game personally. The double HGA hit is pretty significant as well... I think a min of 30 is reasonable though.

As soon as delistings finalized trades must be 1 for 1 or 2 for 2.

We could let trading run for a week or two before delistings are due, then just leave trading open as we begin the rookie draft? Then let trading run until a pre-determined date after the rookie draft?

That sounds reasonable. What about list numbers though? I guess we just couldn't do 2 for 1 trades after Rookie draft?

Yeah that's what happens normally, 1-1, 2-2 etc only after the rookie draft.

if people like it we can have a trade period running into the draft, actually would be really interesting to see some trades as people scramble to pick up guys they wanted in the rookie draft.

As soon as delistings finalized trades must be 1 for 1 or 2 for 2.

once positions announced and nat finishes i will start a new trade period with no restrictions and work on getting list up to date over the week. Then we can start the rookie draft.

If people aren't keen that's fine, was literally an idea I had on a whim haha

As far as I can tell, there are more positives than negatives. If people don't want to trade after a certain point, they just say no to offers. I can't see why I'd want to trade during and after the rookie draft but it's interesting regardless.

yep its on. love the idea, actually think it would be better in the nat. If you see a guy slipping then you talk to someone with a higer pick and get them. if it works in the rookie this year then the plan is to implement it next year. You could even have a rolling trade where there trading goes for the whole offseason.

Agree it would work well in the Nat. Only fear is how much longer it might make the draft take because you'd have to make a "we'll trade 24 and 30 for 20 if blah blah is still around" type of trade. It'd be so much easier if we were all just in a room for the draft.



Obviously never going to happen but how cool would it be if, one year, we all managed to get together in the same place and had a live draft with trade discussions, drinks, and banter?

yeah rules wont change. The way it see it working is everyone lets William Drew Slip in the draft. im on and its pick 23. I see Scrads has pick 26 i send him a message saying pick 34 + Pick 35 is yours for the next pick. He accpets its PMed to me and i approve. Basically relies on me being on all the time, which more then often i am.

But would people be willing to make that trade if it's not already pick 26? Drew could be picked up at 23, 24, or 25 and you've stuffed up your trade... Might take some ironing out but I have no qualms with trying it.

thats the risk the person needs to make. they can try for pick 23 then they just need to get in under the 2 hour rule.

we could remove me from the picture completely by using the value of picks. so they need to be within 20% etc..

Pick 23 has value of 815.

so that means i need to offer 652 to 978 in value.

so pick 37,38 is 948 etc...

or because that might not be high enough

Pick 23 + Pick 55 is 1022 so the cap is 817 to 1226

so that could be pick 31 + Pick 32

its not too hard a calculation to do.

We do pick swaps with our trades normally without taking into consideration draft points or anything.

I would guess there's 2 ways you can do it. Using Holz example, you could just do the 26 for 33 + 34 trade straight off the bat and hope your player lasts to you, if not then you pick someone else anyway. The other option is you agree to the deal with the other team, then when it gets to their pick if the said player is available they take them, then you put the trade through (picks 33 + 34 for the player). Or you do the trade of picks when it gets to that person's pick and then you take the player yourself.

the reason for the points was so that a trade can be agreed and passed without any admin approval.

which is the best way of doing it. so if its pick 23 and my guy i want lasts i go hey Scrads ill chuck yah 31 and 32 for 23 and 55. You accept it auto passes as it falls in the points cap and bang I pick up Drew.

you then have pick 31 plus pick 32.

the draft continues on and then someone Nige, Dom, Holz changed the draft order. unless im sleeping i pretty much will pick it up before it gets to pick 31.

Ah yes I see now, you want to cater for trades that might need to be denied messing up with the draft. In that case maybe yeah we could have a points threshold.

I'd rather keep it simple and keep drafting and trading periods completely separate.

I'd be worried about over complicating it and it giving an edge to the larger coaching teams or more active coaches

I'd probably prefer nat --> trades (after positions, capped for positional changes?)--> rookie

Admittedly we have what, 4 months before round 1? There's always a huge dead patch for EXV over the summer so if the rookie draft drags on a bit it will just make that shorter.

There's 2 options we could do to simplify the approval of trades. 1) we could just back all the coaches and say that all trades pass 2) we could make it that if a trade gets denied, the team that picked a player to trade them can either keep that player or pick a new one as soon as the trade is denied (they'll have to risk that if it does get denied, other people may have continued taking picks).

Sorry mate but I really dont want to be on fanfooty over my holiday at Christmas.

All good mate, I understand that. As I said, it was just an idea I floated on a whim and I won't be fussed if nothing comes of it. Regardless of whether it happens or not, we've traditionally had a trade period after the rookie draft which is in that sort of January period anyway, and obviously you wouldn't be compelled to participate at all (nor would it affect any of your existing picks) so if it were to happen, I'd hope it wouldn't turn you or anyone from the comp!

Pretty much during the drafts.

I am not on FF too much and most people know to reach me on FB if they need something done so I can jump on, as I can go missing on here for days (only been on a bit lately due to draftings). Busy time over the next few months so I'm all for another trading period with no restrictions, but like Rids said, come the festive season and holidays, we'll have to relax rules and still not punish those for not jumping on during that time of year which is just a way of life.

The rookie list is abolished but the player cap remains the same. The way it always worked was get to player cap then pick 5 rookies so it's the same as usual just no rookie list at the end

With Christmas approaching do people want to the draft to start in a few weeks and have no picking rule or have trades open for a month plus and then start draft mid Jan.  I'm leaning towards option 2

unless anyone opposes it a long trade period which means people who want to be active can and those that dont can take christmass off. then back in Jan.

also gives me a few saturdays to put a few hours in each weekend to get lists 100% up to scratch for once.

Agree with most, no rush at all. Plus I like the idea of doing some drafting next year. Keeps the interest in the comp alive over the off-season, makes Euros unique from the other comps and also gives me plenty of time to deal with the inevitable injuries of Belgium players over the off-season.

Might be worth making a poll, but I reckon most will either not mind or be happy with option 2

Since Holz is overseas, I'll be happy to take over this and try to keep it updated (once or twice a day when I get onto a computer). It is also might get the comp back up and going with the fantasy games opening up shortly!

I'll say we can officially start on the 27th of January, so gives everybody a few days to finalise their lists and spots, maybe trade for picks and whatnot. This will be the first draft where you can trade picks/players mid-draft I assume since we've never actually had a trade period besides for DPP changes, but we also can't leave this draft until too late.

I'll also circulate around a PM soon to remind people there!

In my opinion this rookie draft needs to be completed prior to the JLT Comp beginning next week otherwise people in the draft will gain an advantage over others who planned not to be there by seeing footy action and new players and roles.

So this is a quote from the draft thread but my response is more appropriate to here

We'll go Wilson


Same reason as Ruggles really, provides that defensive depth, a player about to hit his prime etc.

geez your killing me.

both my defenders gone.

This is why in future we should pump out the rookie draft and have a 1 week trade window post-draft ;)

i was just about to say i absolutely love having the draft close to the season and was thinking we go even later next year. People are getting some serious value now rather then just taking stabs in the dark. If we drafted 2 weeks ago i would have taken DBJ pick 8.

being close to the season ill be able to pick up a decent defender.

Haha, instead I'm getting some serious value in DBJ at 18 ;) People letting him slide cos Port haven't played a JLT match yet.

I don't really mind when we do it, but the absolute key is that THIS MUST BE DECIDED IN THE POST-SEASON IN OCTOBER!!! Some teams are put at a significant disadvantage by having some JLT matches played and others not played. Plus this entirely changes the value of some rookie picks (for better and worse) therefore it is critical that everyone is on the same page from the beginning of the trade window.

No surprise with the defenders getting picked up,look at the team lists and see how many teams needed defenders,this is why we grabbed Dea with our first pick so we could get our ruck backup along with another mid with later picks,could see a lot of defenders going in these rounds

I've strayed from my original plan based on picking the best players available in my opinion. Just a happy accident that these were defenders, but the Euro rookie has a history of solid defenders popping up!

Agree and apologies for the stuff up. Ill put it to vote after the draft finishes for next year.

Yeah, unfortunately it did need to be sorted really earlier. I'm all for having the draft late, but it really shouldn't have overlapped with the preseason games without prior knowledge (doesn't really affect me, I didn't trade any rookie picks, but it is an advantage to anyone who loaded up on rookie picks).

To be honest, I'm all for trading all season long (except during the drafts- otherwise people will hold up the draft while negotiating etc.). I know it's not how the AFL works (at the moment), but it is in keeping pretty well with fantasy football. Itd be nice for the teams who, lets say, have their top 2 forwards get LTIS to still be competitive, and it gives the opportunity for other teams with depth (in this scenario) to capitalise on those situations. You'd probs limit the number of trades though
Title: Re: EXV: Discussion
Post by: LaHug on February 23, 2017, 08:30:18 AM
Nah, don't limit them. Unlimited trades during the season! I'm waiting for Sam Jacobs to get sick for a few weeks towards the end of the season and have ele offer me a king's ransom for Reilly O'Brien.

I did talk about a mid season trade period. But that was generally unpopular.

its abit unlucky for spite as he has decent back up rucks in Longer English Stanley. I reckon Stanley could come back and help save him.

This is why though I always handcuff my rucks.

Goldy Preuss Daw ill always have a ruck.

Jake Spencer did go undrafted just unlucky for spite he didnt have any rookie picks or it would have been good to pick him up.

If people like positional changes, I'd happily vote on it right now. I don't think it'll affect my team in the slightest and probably just helps whoever has Dusty but I think it has merit. Of course, I understand if people pushed back and said they wanted the change but not until next season.

ill put it to a vote im not very keen for it to be honest but ill see what people think. Ill put a vote up for this season and to introduce next season.

I reckon AF doesnt get it right at all especially when they do it early in the season. So that my big reason against it. Half the mids seem to get gifted some form of DPP, reckon it makes the comp way too unbalanced and totally advantages teams with bulk mids.

its also a pretty big advantage where players dont lose status so what im saying in that is a F who is now a defender becomes a F/D rather then just a D.

im looking at a few things instead.

1. Mid Season 1 week trade period during the byes
2. Mid Season Rookie Draft (1 round) everyone has option to pick up 1 player. The worry is this dilutes rookie value for next year.

well the draft would be in order of postion on the ladder at that point. So it gives the weaker teams a leg up in this period and then they also get first pick at the end of the year so actually  might help the weaker teams.

Post by: Nige on May 24, 2017, 11:17:35 AM
Hey all, so in attempt to kind of bring a more real time alternative for members of the forum, we've gone ahead and set up a FanFooty Forum Discord server. It'll serve as a newer and more modern version of the old FF chat. All the details you need to know are below:

So, the Discord server is basically up and running. I still have to add a few things here and there but it's set up enough to be functional imo.

To download Discord, you can go here: https://discordapp.com/

The above link will allow you to either access Discord online or allow you to download the program (that's what I use). As I mentioned before, you can also get the app on your phone.

If you don't already have Discord, you'll have to create an account. It's free, quick and easy to do. It's probably best people use their FF name, but if you already use Discord under a different name or want to sign up under a different name, that's fine - we can always change your name once you get on.



The link to the server is: https://discord.gg/95UJz7f



Once you get on, you should be able to start chatting straight away in the text channels.

For anyone who wants to use the voice channels (I doubt this will be popular or interest many, but the option is there), I advise you set up push-to-talk (PTT). Basically, in the settings you can set up a key as your 'PTT' button to speak on mic if you want, this just blocks out background noise, typing sounds and other noises you might make while on mic. This obviously requires you to have a mic to speak, but you can still also sit in voice channels and simply listen to anyone conversing.

There's an @ feature to tag members. Generally, a member will get a notification if they've been tagged. Please don't abuse this feature or use it to annoy anyone. One thing I suggest is tagging an admin or mod when you get on so we know who has arrived for the first time and can help you with any basics like a name change or giving a role.

Another thing that people might find helpful is that you can still be on Discord but afk (away from keyboard). There are 3 other settings apart from online that you can mark yourself as to indicate your status. Idle, Do Not Disturb or Invisible. Might be good for those that still wanna be on and have access to Discord, but aren't around to actively chat, or are at work, school or whatever.

I'll add a bunch of rules and stuff over the course of the day but common sense and common courtesy apply. Anything that will get you reported, suspended or banned here on the forum will go for the Discord.

I plan to keep the same roles for the forum. So those who are site-wide mods here will get mod powers and those with Discord experience will also get mod powers to help assist those who are new.

If there are any other questions, let me know. KB and (I assume) a couple of others around here probably have used Discord before so I'll get them to help out with that stuff if need be.

Scores going smoothly teams almost 100% finished.

should be a big big offseason.

Hungary will be selling everyone with guys like Rocky JJK JPK all on the trade table.

Finals will be interesting its looking like Bashers v the field. If Euro history is anything to go by, always back the field. Favourites dont win in Euros there is always many surprises, so I reckon more then half the comp is a shot of taking home the flag.

I think I floated this at the start of the year, but can we bring back in a sub rule?

Like you name one substitute player and if you have someone on your team get injured out before the 3rd quarter they get replaced?

With just 15 players one injury can really dick over your whole team

We need to make sure it's clearly defined though.
Is halftime the cut-off?
What if a player scores 60 and gets injured late in the second quarter, and your sub only scores 40. Do you have to take the 40?
What if your captain is injured? Does the sub replace them and the VC become C?

etc.

This is what I think it should be

If your play is injured before half time or does not come on at half time then they are subbed off unless the guy replacing them scores lower.

This works for Captains too where the player is subbed off and the VC made the captain. My suggestion is if this losses you points then you keep it as it is. It would be very uncommon that a guy playing a half or less would score enough to make it not worth for the VC to take over.

Thoughts?

What say you name your squad 15 players + 4 emerg's with the 4th being the nominated sub. ie Play x (Sub). Saying then your sub scores say 62 & your lowest player (player D) scores say 35 then the 62 becomes added to your score & the 35 is removed.  **But** in saying that tho for HGA purposes the 35 remains.

Also wouldn't mind if we left the sub out. Yes it sucks when it happens, but on average we should all get our fair share (on both ends). Just part of the swings and roundabouts of the game IMO.

Agreed.

I don't mind not having it, as Scrads says it should even out over time and it gives the rebuilding sides a sniff against the big dogs

However if we do need to have it, emg in the possie should come in.

Re above only followed rule book.
2.5 Compensations picks are awarded when a team finishes a season with three or less wins. This means that they will receive a pick in the first round of the draft after the team's first pick or after the team all the other teams who received a compensation before you have taken their pick.

Bison are strong enough? Bison have won 6 games over the last two years - good for worst in the comp. I like out potential, particularly as a biased head coach, but we're relying on luck that our young players actually become good. Otherwise, we're stuck at the bottom for the foreseeable future.

Nobody's willing to trade away anyone over 25 that's also good enough to actually get us any wins this year. By trading in exclusively young players, we increase our chances that a few of them make the leap and then we're back in contention. A priority pick just gives us one more chance to do that. It's the only reasonable approach.

We peaked as Runners Up, a whole bunch of our players were super old and retiring. It's just how it works unless you're a draft expert and keep picking up the best young guys at pick 15 each year.

They have

a likely top 10 mid so a great captain option who is only 24.
the best ruck in the comp who is only 23
a top 10 ruck who is only 23 and has alot of value on the trade market.


A top 3 pick in Mcgluggage to go with youth in Moore Weller Sympkin Powell Pepper, Tucker

I have complete faith that with Pick 2 and 16 in the draft to go along with Rookie 2 that Lahug can make this a very competitive team next year.

The strength of the list is there. You cant go on how many wins the team has done as if that was the case then Hungary needs to priority pick and they dont need it either. I dont think Belarus are struggling at all and have significant trade assets.

1 captain option and 2 decent rucks for the 1 spot. 0 depth and 0 top end talent across backs and fwds.

I would suggest that when your best forward or back is named Jack Darling, then you require assistance. Trading Nank and the priority pick would give the team a serious leg up.

Everyone wants more competitive leagues which I think EXV is very close to achieving.

We have the 13th best mid on average and, considering age, I'll give you likely top 10.
We have the best ruck in the comp.
We have the 8th best ruck in the comp with Gawn and Mummy having down years, so top 10 is good again.

Aside from that, we have nothing but potential. Weller is the only player you listed that cracked the 70 average this year and you have "complete faith" I can make use competitive next year.

Basically, to summarise the Bison list:

The only way that we could quickly become good is to trade all of that young potential to teams wanting to rebuild and steal their stars. I don't think anyone wants to do this and, if they do, we then get a new mediocre team in the Bison, a few rebuilding teams, and a bigger gap to the top. Doesn't sound like a good comp to me...



Thanks Rids. However, if Nank keeps forward status, I think we're even better keeping him than trading him. Send in your offers though :P

I think the problem with this is that the 2016 Premiers then won the wooden spoon with only 3 wins for the year. Which means they 'qualify' for a priority pick which is not warranted imo.

I think there might be an amendment of the rule to maybe read 3 wins a year in 2 'consecutive' years or something so teams that do require a priority pick get the assistance they require.

issue is im looking at next year.

you could say a team that has back to back low years has had 2 top 3 picks, 2 early 2nd rounders and 2 early rookie picks and is on the way back up.

The team who went from flag to spoon, has 1 top 3 pick, 1 early rookie, pick and basically 2 early 2nd rounders.

thats why i think a case by case basis is needed.

see if Lahug offered to trade all his players for Hungary id consider it as it has alot more better youth then me. a bunch of 28+ year old players arent really helping my rebuild.

So can we trade players we've just taken in the national draft since trading is still open until the following Monday?

yep thats the point.

however there is still the 2 hour online rule so if its your pick and your negotiating a deal and its taking too long you will be skipped. I dont want it holding up the draft, so plan in advance and act quick.

I like trading when drafts are on but the one downside is it holds up drafts if not managed properly. If your busy and dont want to trade then you dont have to so i think its best of both worlds as long as the time restrictions are in place.

So the thread got locked, but just so it's aired here is my reply to the situation:

I see Hardwick as being on the Bears list in one of the other draft threads
And in any case admin should have been told he appears to be missing so he could be added to the draft if he isn't on a team list

Not according to 'EXV team lists by position' thread or the OP of the Bears team thread (which appears to be updated as it says 2018 and has their Nat draftees).

The rookie draft never had an 'available players list' in the past, it used to be up to coaches to do their own research. I identified Blake (along with others) as a target halfway through the year and made a little shortlist when I noticed he wasn't on a team then. I wasn't going to trawl through everyone's lists and the unlisted players just to make sure everyone was accounted for, was I?

Only bad thing about this is should have been mentioned as being missed so that he could have been added to the left over players.

Stands as Wolves pick.

If I was REALLY trying to rort the system, I would have waited until my last pick. I figured there'd be some coaches who would realise since there was a spreadsheet shared on this board earlier this year which had this info on it as well.

So the rookie draft is locked for some reason. With our last pick (24) we'll take Ben Brown who we're pretty sure isn't on anyone's list? (correct me if I'm wrong).

We'll pass on our other picks as that takes us to 40.
