    Greetings coaches!

    The second quarter of the year 2505 is here, and its time to host a blood bowl tournament in our legendary home stadium of Oldheim Ogres, the Goadmalice Park. The 74 year old stadium has seen it all and its time to add a new entry to the Book of Grudges, and launch the debute of The Mighty Mithril Cup! 16 great teams from afar, battle for the bragging rights and Goblin Goblet 15 months sponsorship contract. Lets see who the contenders are... :skull::skull:


    First draft tree:
    1. @mamutas
    2. @TravelScrabble
    3. @cjblackburn
    4. @Street
    5. @Brody
    6. @Orielensis
    7. @ParaDoc
    8. @Znarx
    Second draft tree:
    1. @slanesh
    2. @St Cloud
    3. @TwoScoops
    4. @TomSchnizz
    5. @Ravers
    6. @notorious noob
    7. @Regor
    8. @Martin ScoresEasy
    The available teams in both trees:
    How does this work?
    Everyone, when their turn comes; copy-pastes the team list into their post, and writes their own name next to the race they choose. Don't forget to tag the next guy of your drafting tree, so they know its their turn!

    So, @mamutas and @slanesh - you start.

    Remember: whatever the coaches in the other tree pick, does not affect your options.

    Reserves:
    @Collybear

    Enclosure for reserves: If a coach from reserve steps in, he automatically inherits the draft pick of the coach he replaces. If this is not possible due DLC-race, coach discusses the matter with the TMM-staff.

    So your top 3 picks were all Khemri? Interesting.

    On a more serious note, you may as well decide that when it gets to you as you have last pick from our 8.

    Yes this is the plan.

    My only problem right now is the in-game league system. I think I dont have any way to ensure which teams go which side of the format, which is needed to avoid having double race match-ups. I guess I have to do two seperate competitions (2x 8-team knockouts), and then make own comp for the finalists to take on?

    EDIT// And by the way, I really enjoy following this drafting phase!

    Lets go for some suffering.

    Either 2 seperate knockouts of 8 or you make a bracket and then match up by sending out tickets (more work)

    Yeah you'll need to do 2 leagues then a new competition for the next rounds I think. By the way do we get to see our opponents before making our teams as mine could vary a lot depending on which race I am up against.

    The opponents are coaches in your draft tree and I think the game randomises the match-ups once I start the comp?

    edit// oops missed notorious's comment. I guess I let the game randomise the match-ups!
