I defeated Mooseman in week 12...
Well, I am assuming that Rakarth went on an extended leave, and I also assume all the other games in this "week" were finished.....should we move along?
If you aren't playing Rakarth, feel free to start your game. I'm trying to convince Ransac to come back, so that we'll still have 8 active participants. If he decides to stay retired, I think I'll pick up Rakarth's deck myself.
Someone let me know when week 14 starts
Well, for week 12, I started a thread, bumped it a couple of times, and never got the response. I will look for who I am supposed to play in week 13 and go ahead and start that one up then...
Alright. It seems like it will be a little more complicated than I thought to pull Ransac back in and ensure that all the records remain fair. So if Ransac wants to come back, he'll just play in place of Rakarth, since their records were almost identical, anyway. In the meantime, I'm going to try and cobble together a deck out of Rakarth's cards and play in his place. If either Ransac or BPC decide to come back, I'll gladly step aside.
So here are the matchups for Week 13:
Modus Pwnens vs. Melkor
BigBlue vs. Spiderman
Rokapoke vs. DarthFerret
Mooseman vs. Turgy22
DarthFerret wins over Rokapoke in a very close match for week 13.
Is there a time when we pick a new boosters to draft or add to our decks?
I had everyone pick new boosters for the next draft when this season started. Here's the rundown of who picked what:
Rokapoke - Planar Chaos
DarthFerret - Unlimited
BigBlue - Shadowmoor
Spiderman - Odyssey
Modus Pwnens - Urza's Saga
Ransac - Planar Chaos
BPC - Arabian Nights
Mooseman - Shadowmoor
Rakarth - Time Spiral
Melkor - Alliances
Right... I'm sorry to be asking questions that were probably answered, it's just that I lose track or forget when it goes on this long So when do we draft next? I'm asking because I already played rokapoke and now am playing him again, so I guess how many rounds are in a "season"?
19 weeks in the first season and we are on week 14......
I feel like the Pittsburgh Pirates in this league.......
Wow... you're not kidding...
Well, not quite as bad as Seattle......
Actually, I meant I'm pretty much in the same boat... keeping the bottom occupied...
It's a pretty big advantage during the off season to finish last, you're picking first from all the booster packs. Although I'm wondering if it is possible that the next regular season be a little shorter.
I don't think there's a HUGE advantage to picking first overall. Sure, you get the best card out of the eight to ten boosters (depends how many people stick around for next season), but it's still only one card. And if the best card doesn't fit your colors, you're either screwed or you have to put your mana base at risk with the pick.
As far as a shorter season, I definitely think my initial plan of 23 weeks was too long. I think 17 is ideal. It makes scheduling really easy for 8 players, plus I'd like one full season to last about one real calender year. 17 games at 2 weeks each = 34 weeks, which leaves 18 weeks for the playoff, draft, trades, and other offseason activities. I could shorten things up even more (maybe get a season down to half a year) by getting rid of the week-to-week format. Just have everyone play everyone else: 3 games for division opponents, 2 games for out-of-division opponents. It would certainly cut down on the "waiting around" time between rounds, but would also lose a lot of the sports league flavor. Or I could go one step further, get rid of the divisions and playoffs and just have everyone play everyone else, with the best record winning for the season.
Either way, I'm open to suggestions. I thought this would be a fun idea and it's obviously still evolving, so I'll do whatever it takes to keep people interested and having fun.
Hey, I'm having fun. Just want some new cards to invigorate my deck I'll go with whatever you decide.
It looks like most of the week 14 games have kicked off already, so I'm going to link them here and say that this officially begins the week.
Rokapoke vs. Spiderman
BigBlue vs. Melkor
Mooseman vs. DarthFerret
Modus Pwnens vs. Turgy22
I have yet to see or hear anything from Modus Pwnens since last week. At this point, I'm going to call his current game in favor of Melkor.
Melkor wins another... argh!
Spidey manages to defeat rokapoke for Week 14.
