One of us could just take over each unmanaged team then resign in order to block the transfers. I don't mind doing it. Don't think the 300m will get us very far if we go free for all, bidding max all over the place.

I think we can go on with the draft.

Its just that someone has to take over all the unmanaged teams once a day and then resigning. That'll cancel out the bids.

Grand idea. With, I guess a second account?

Pretty much. Just start a bogey acount Card Cheat and apply, and quit, and reapply for another

You'll have to accept your application with your normal account though. Or if everyone was to apply for an extra club if they have another account, you could accept their applications and we could stay managering them until the draft is down, then quit. I applied for Forest with another account, accept it and i'll stay as their manager to stop them bidding. Everyone else with another account, do the same.
Iknow Kesey has numerous accounts

Could also pm the likes of the Napoli, Dortmund, Milan and Juve manager in my world if they could apply for a team with their accounts. They cant partake in the draft, not on rawk? but once the draft is over they might stay on anyway

I know, since when were unmanaged teams arsed about being competitive?

I'll message those guys and see if they're interested. I've got a bit of time on my hands so will set up a raft of new accounts too.

Betty hasn't got a team? I'm getting impatient here! If we don't get a move on then I can't see this working. Everyone needs to get their picks in so that the team is ready for the big KO.

Sure, no probs.

Think he said he might not be online much. I'll keep Deportivo free for him.

Might be an idea if people are not online much to PM either me or Lawnmo a big list of preferred players or something, and we can pick whoever is still available. Get through it a bit quicker.

Good grief, Betty still hasn't picked a player or a team even?!!

If everyone could agree a 2 hour time slot then could we not at least get through a few rounds?

I would be amazed if we're done by the 3rd if we're all logging in at different times but this is my first draft.

After 3 rounds of free time so people get their first chosen preference and so people get used to the scenario (as there's newbies) we're then down to a 1hr time limit so it'll shift soon enough

Three managers from Lawnmos world want to join in the draft. I reckon yes, but we get strict with the timing earlier, from Round 2.

Thoughts?

I don't mind, to be fair it's a bit cheeky telling them they can only join after we've hoovered up all the best players! How would they make their picks though? I could proxy for Napoli guy if he's one of the three you're talking about but I don't know any of the others.

Also, that would make 17 drafters and I wouldn't go much higher than that due to the time constraints. Might be a good idea to take the 'Managers Wanted' part out of this thread's title so we don't get swamped!

Never thought we'd be saying that!

Yeah, if you can proxy for Napoli guy that'd be grand.

I've got loads of free time at the minute, so I can proxy for the other two. I've asked them to give me a big list of preferred picks to go off, and by keeping an eye on the world they can see which players are available by where the bids are going.

Kinell indeed.  ;D

I'm at the top of the draft so as long as no-one comes after Maximus and Ryan I can proxy them fine. Just do three at once.

See how the next few days goes and if its a nightmare just pull the trigger on a free for all. Sound either way.

I reckon if people are available to pick then let them go, until we get to the bottom. If betty or anyone else comes online after missing their pick just let them pick now.

Dont start the snake again until everyone has picked.

Most of us would have looked by now and would know who we're going for. The 1st pick should be pretty straight forward.
