2018 World Cup Draft Game!

Recommended Posts

Looking for 16 people to join in.

Whoever wishes to play will be drawn a number, they will then get to pick a player in the order they are drawn. e.g player drawn 5th will get the 5th pick, 6th will get the 6th pick and so on.

we will keep going until everyone has 11 players.

Players can pick any player who will be playing at the World Cup, so no Bale or Ibrahimovic. Sorry

When all players have finished picking a knock-out tournament will be drawn. Players will pick there formations and where their players will play.

A thread will be made for each match and forum users will vote on who they think will win the match between the two teams.

The winner going through to the next round, the loser leaves the comp. We will keep going until we have a winner.

Rules:

Players (you) will be drawn a number from 1-16, the number they are drawn represents the order in which they will pick in the first round. Each round thereafter they order will alternate, 16-1, 1-16 and so on.

There will be 11 rounds, and you will pick a football player in each round, thus having 11 players.

A player can only be picked once.

You can pick your players in any order e.g a striker, then a left back, then a goalkeeper.

You can have as many players for one position as you like, e.g 11 goalkeepers or 7 strikers and 4 defenders.

You can only pick 1 PLAYER PER NATION

When it is your turn to pick, make your choice in the thread like this:

1. Cantona (France), 2. Scholes (England)

When it is your turn to pick you will have 6 hours inside the game window of 8am and 11pm to make your pick and post in the thread. You can make picks outside this time but will not be punished for not picking outside this time.

If you miss your pick you will get two picks next time, miss that pick and you are out of the game.

If you pick when it is not your turn you will also lose that turn and your player will be available for someone else.

When all rounds have been played A knock-out tournament will be drawn at random, you will pick and post your formations and where your players will play.

A thread will be made for each match and forum users will vote on who they think will win the match between the two teams. You can vote for your own team.

The voting threads will last for one day (24 hours)

The winner going through to the next round, the loser leaves the comp. We will keep going until we have a winner.

Feel free to ask any questions about the game or discuss it in this thread. You can also discuss the matches in their thread, leaving a comment on why you voted.

If you think I have missed anything please let me know.

Post below if you want to join in :)

Gizzy out of game retirement, I have to participate for nostalgia purposes.

Also, you're not going to have enough time for this so I look forward to the ensuing shambles.

Another vote for playing the games in FM from me. Can you set up some sort of custom tournament in FM?

@GunmaN1905 is up first.

Remember to tag the next in line. I will look into running the matches on FM, but not sure if it will work.

The final 23s aren't announced yet though are they...

Well, I doubt anyone will pick a player that's not sure to get on the roster.

Maybe Dybala or Icardi.

Anyhow, I actually won the draft lottery.

Have to go with Messi, every simulation or voting always favors him. :D
(he'll surely bottle it at WC now)

Lionel Messi - Argentina

@Andyh21 you're up next.

What's your game then eh? :herman:

I have a plan that is almost entirely based on storming to an unlikely victory.

If you guys want the results in FM18 then I think you will have to pick 22 players.

So the choices are 11 picks and voting system or 22 players and FM.

Post your preference :)

You can speed up the process if everyone selects 3-4 players at once after starting 11s are done.
