Interesting idea about the script, but I prefer the human element and the "thrill" of the event... planning my picks, tracking other peoples picks, anxiety as my turn approaches, obscenities as my pick gets sniped, elation when my pick is available, smack talking the other competitors. I'm into this for more than just the parts.
We gave proxy drafts a try. Never where the whole draft was entirely proxy, but I think it's pretty clear people want to be actively participating in it. Perhaps if this draft is long enough we'll consider it in the future for bigger drafts, or avoid big combos entirely.
BTW, it pays once again to be on the wait list. We lost kjklock today and have now added veteran jennnifer to our ranks.
Just confirming we're still rolling @ 10am PST (which if my brain is working this morning is 1pm EST). Which means I'll almost have time for lunch after the kids soccer games before pilfering all the good parts ... well, maybe not all the good parts, I don't pick til 10th, ... but I get the 11th pick as well, and that's where I'm gonna make people CRY!! ** clearly with a touch more than 1 day to go, there needs to be a bit of banter ...
i would apologize on behalf of AT&T but I really just hate them. I however, am sorry about my internet woes and thank everyone for their patience today1
As with Draft 6 I had a great time and want to thank Chief, Onions The Lesser & The High and Exalted Mrs. Chief for their time and effort on this matter.
I got a bunch of awesome parts coming, and had a nice social Lego afternoon with a great group of people from all over the place! I can't wait for the next one =-D
So here's my question... does anyone have any other ideas for a way to do this where we can keep track of what has been picked? something where it automatically keeps track would be a lot better than Ryan or Ace entering the picks into the Gdocs spreadsheet
maybe there's already something out there we can use that would be better, I know a few times there was confusion about what was taken and what wasn't.
Maybe we should look at asking one of the coders to do something that would pull the inventory from BL (with pics) then allow the draft-master to enter quantities and break lots... if someone could do something like that decently it would be well worth covering the cost of letting them in on a draft as payment
