    The new season is imminent and with it a new era. For the uninitiated this means a reset for all teams and a fresh race draft.

    NA Timezone leagues:

    Squall - Necro
    Remthar - Vampires
    Travelscrabble - Goblin Circus (Slann)
    Timdog - Norse
    Larkstar - Goblin Circus (Slann)
    Orabbi - Chaos


    European Timezone league:

    Ken - Chaos Pact
    Danton - Skaven

    I'd say "Late" picks - low picks sounded like they had low numbers = early picks = free choice.

    But it seems they might want to trade something?

    I'll be trying to trade up. Reckon i'll need at least top 20 to get Pact. If that fails where I am works as I can focus on trying to pick up extra cap.

    Hmmm, no idea what race I want! I had been thinking Nurgle, but I'm getting worried that I might have to sit out season two of the era due to travel plans. Which would suck for a slow developing team.

    I feel like trying something with a little bash rather than more elves, so maybe Undead, Dwarves or Amazons?

    Might even see if I can trade even lower in this case, as I doubt all of them will go fast!

    I doubt any of those will max. There's a few decent FAs in the undead pool - I have them shortlisted so I've drawn up a hit list for each of the races I'm looking at.

    Yeah, starting with 2 AGi5 vamps looks pretty sweet! I don't have the guts to go for Vamps this season, so good luck if you go with them.

    Well the position I'm in puts me out of the Slann race I think, but it should give me everything I need to go the Necro route so I think that will be my plan.

    How come TS?
    Do you know of three other AFC/WFC coaches above you in the draft who are going Slann then?
    I only know of Thul having shown some interest.

    No but there's also you and Charlibanks. AFC/WFC is only guaranteed 1 racial spot if LFC maxes out and I'm kind of assuming that people who want Slann are going to trade up, whereas I want them but not badly enough to sacrifice all my cap and flags. If you do trade up and need to pick up some extra cap let me know, I've got 50 or so to spare for a flag or two :)

    Thanks, I'll bear that in mind.

    Problem with trading up is I'll leave myself unable to re-recruit more than 1 of my players from this season.
    I've got a Block/Guard/SF Krox (210k), and a couple of lvl 2 & 3 blitzers (130k & 150k who I'd probably choose from.

    Even if I were to take just the Krox & the 130k blitzer that leaves me with just 50k and flags to trade.

    The other thing is if there's only 1 spot left for an LFC Slann coach then I don't think I'd want to deny Charlie the chance to continue, he'll represent for Slann much better than I can currently.

    I'm also don't have a stand-out 2nd choice race at the moment.

    Well see what kind of price you can get for your flag. I'll certainly give you 40k for an A maybe even 50, not sure if genuine but Ken seems to have got 90k for his three.

    I'm pretty sure Thul is going Slann if he's doesn't get Chaos again, which might be something to keep in mind. He hasn't drawn a spot yet.

    You sure? I thought it was 4 spots per race, LFC gets at least one, and at most two?

    That's correct, the max race cap is 4, split either of the following ways:

    2 AFC/WFC + 2 LFC

    or

    3 AFC/WFC + 1 LFC

    That's why I asked if TS knew of 3 other AFC/WFC coaches who could beat him to slann, because Charlie and I both have a low draft spot... for now. ;)

    Remind me, who are you again? :p

    Hmm maybe Slann is back on the cards :)

    Ken what you need to worry about is the sense of expectation, with a draft pick like that you'd better make it count ;)

    Hey guys, posting this here because I don't think Thul has an account...

    Has anyone in the OFL tried organizing some type of gift for the guy? He does sooooo much. I want to send some type of thank you, but the thought of just sending him money/donations seems... blah. What are chances we could try to organize $5 from everyone to pitch in for some sort of gift? Anyone have ideas on what he likes? What he needs? Am I being silly? =)

    If I sent a mass PM to everyone except Thul, what kind of chaos would I be starting? haha
