Shoddy Draft 2: Experience The UU [Dead In The Water]
« on: September 21, 2014, 03:29:13 AM »
As of November 16th, no new matches have occurred. I'm calling this Dead in the Water. Hopefully, we can try again in the New Year or after Touhou Puppet Dance Performance gets translated.

Details of what WAS the 2nd draft are in the spoiler.

Spoiler
So I felt inspired to post this in light of Shoddy's mildly successful first draft.

Draft Explanation:
Spoiler
If you don't know what a draft is, drafting involves building a team using a limited amount of Puppets at your disposal, then competing with that team against other draft teams. It's basically a tournament where a player selects from a Pool of Puppets. Of course, if one player selects a puppet, another player cannot select the same puppet and must go with a different one. The order of which players get to pick is randomized, and the draft goes on until every player has a full roster (anywhere from 10 to 15 puppets). The draft picks occur only once, so if you miss it, you'll have to wait until the next draft.
     
After all players have a roster, they must build teams to fight against other teams. Of course, since the team limit is 6 in standard matches, opponents can use any of the 10-15 puppets in their roster. Counter-teaming is optional, but recommended.
     
The tournament is a Round Robin, which means every contestant has to face off against every other contestant at least once in a match of best 2-out-of-3. Once the Round Robin is over, the 4 best contestants (i.e. The four that win the most matches) face off in the finals.
     
The reward is, more or less, bragging rights.
     
The previous draft was limited to all puppets used in Standard Play (nothing banned, like Speed Aya). This time, however, the plan is to have players use Underused, or UU puppets only. Puppets that are considered Underused can be found here:
http://thpp.supersanctuary.net/forum/index.php?topic=225
(All Puppets NOT Bolded are considered UU. Ubers, like Sendai and the X Puppets, obviously do not count.)

I made a visual guide for those that don't like reading through walls of text to find out what is considered OU/UU. To that end, any puppet that is NOT in the chart can be drafted (used for the tournament).
Spoiler
     
As of September 24th, 11:30 PM EDT, the draft has concluded. A list of this tournament's draft picks can be found here: http://goo.gl/33ej2G

Not mandatory, but feel free to post a log for any of the matches you fight in.

It should go without saying, but all standard battle rules apply (i.e. Evasion Clause, Species Clause, etc.). Sand Veil is also banned, so don't try it.
     
Obligatory Team Name Post: SoulfulLex reporting in as The Chentastics.

UPDATE: Anyone who drops out of the draft will have their remaining matches marked as ties, since they were technically never played...nor do I think it's fair to mark up undue victories. Sue me.

Neo reporting in as "Neo's Tiny Tornadoes". This should be amusing. My times are pretty flexible, so I should be able to attend those draft times.

I'll join if it'd alright for someone to draft my picks for me (considering getting internet during weekdays is rather painful).

So I went ahead and made a tournament page. Only the Standings page matters so far, as its a record of who's participating (i.e. Team Name / Username). We now have more participants than the last draft. Of course, there's still time to sign up. Again, the deadline is September 24th (This Wednesday) at 9:00 PM EDT. We may start a little later for any last minute sign-ups, however.

Just a reminder that the draft takes place tomorrow night at 9 PM on the Shoddy Server. There's still time to sign up if you haven't already done so.

Since this time will be a UU Draft, I made a visual guide for those that don't like reading through walls of text to find out what is considered OU/UU. To that end, any puppet that is NOT in the chart can be drafted (used for the tournament).

I guess I'll join this if I'm not too late idk

If I actually get in, I'll be team "Moriya is still the best and everyone with a different opinion is a nerd"
One day I'll be famous for all the amazing things I've achieved. But until then, I'm going to continue doing absolutely nothing.
