Updated: EZA Forum FantasyCritic League 2020 Season Thread



  • Changing the draft order is done by clicking "Edit Draft Order" in the sidebar when you are looking at your league. There's no setting to randomize it, although I'll consider adding that. You can implement a "random" yourself with a random number generator if you like.

    Sorting by hype factor is not a thing yet, but I am planning on working on that over the next few hours. I'll post a tweet when the update goes out.



  • Gonna get on more of this later today when I am at home, and I'm more than ok with a 9pm start time for the draft this Saturday.



  • @elitefusion said in EZA Forum FantasyCritic League signup EDIT: My league is full! (you can start your own though!):

    I don't have that option right now. Is that something that shows up after you click Start Drafting?



  • How does everyone feel about allowing early access games?



  • Right now the default is set to NOT allow them. But a dissenting opinion was brought up. So we need an official vote.



  • Shouldn't we be sure that they're gonna have the official release then in 2019 in order for them to have scores for this whole thing?

    Or, hmm, yeah, I guess we shouldn't, it's not needed. If someone goes with the risky business option and chooses an early access game and it doesn't get released with a review score in 2019 they'll just end up empty-handed with that pick. Right?



  • I'm mostly against early access.
    Though if someone makes a good argument for a game, and is passionate about it, I would let them have it.



  • LEAGUE UPDATE:

    9pm PST tonight is our draft. We have 13 confirmed teams and one pending team. If, by 8:30 if @GMan hasn't accepted the league invite he requested - I'm gonna cut him loose and I will announce a first come first serve window to fill that final spot that'll last until 8:45. Have your email accounts ready.

    I'd also recommend downloading discord, since that's how we are all coordinating this outside of the forum. If/when you're accepted into the league I'll send you the link to our discord group.

    I'd also recommend going over how the draft and league work. I'm not going to have a lot of time to answer questions between 8:30 and 9pm.

    If @GMan is around, then he will get that final slot. If nobody else is around before I push the Draft button at 8:45pm on the dot - then we just roll with 13 teams.



  • So we're getting the draft order at 8:45?



  • @inustar yes



  • Alrighty then, We have ONE OPEN SPOT. First come first serve for the next 15 minutes.
    BE READY TO DRAFT at the top of the hour. Open enrollment ends at 8:45PST and draft begins promptly at 9:00PST

    Don't PM me, first person to post in this thread in reply to me will get it. I don't want to have to sort out time-stamps if multiple people PM me at the same time. :)

    If nobody is around, we move on!



  • Aaaaaaand nobody got in. But @elitefusion stepped in and he's gonna be our 14th

    I got counterpicked twice, which I expected.

    Everyone forgot about Metal Wolf, which was hype.



  • A three-hour long draft session, that was. Didn't feel that long, I had fun. And stress. We saw some solid picks there. Also bold picks. Even a few dumb picks? In any case this really spiced up the year, a cool meta game to play. Thanks everyone! Slim especially.

    Now to wait and pray that Anthem is good and The Last of Us Part II doesn't come out. I'm also a tad worried that Griftlands won't come out.



  • @Sentinel-Beach Dumb picks add to the fun! :D



  • I'm sorry I missed the draft. Thanks Tokyo for taking care of me. I actually think TLOU Pt II will release in 2019 and it'll be like 98 on Metacritic, so I think I'm pretty set with this pick alone. I don't think Anthem will score low either.

    What's funny is that I have a bet for a $25 PSN card that Days Gone will score in the 65-70s so now Days Gone is a pony in two races and I need different results for both.

  • @dipset Well your best outcome I guess is that it scores low 70s, so you still get the gift card and a couple points. Just gotta hope Nintendo and Sony hit it out of the park.... this year.
