annatar Posted December 31, 2020 Report Share Posted December 31, 2020 (edited) After discussing with a few other people it seems like a great time to revive the SNES draft league (SDL) after a several year hiatus. This post is to indicate your interest and make suggestions or ask any questions you might have about the format. I would like to run this starting this winter with games starting after Classic finishes. Since it will naturally take some time to form a league and run a draft, we can get the ball rolling straight away. @dangler has some experience with editing the rom and has volunteered to help out, which is great! @TecmoJon will also help out with commish duties. So thanks in advance to those buds. Proposed format: Classic rules: 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offsides, line changes off. Draft: Snake draft. Meaning if you pick 1st in round 1 you go last in round 2, and so on. Everyone drafts 6F, 4D and 2 goalies. Players would be redrafted for any subsequent seasons (i.e., no keepers). Trading: To be determined, but in the past trades had been allowed. All teams are unique so standings and stats would be tracked on nhl94online.com site as usual, subject to approval by@chaos The player pool is all the players from the classic rom. You can pick any team you want since it's a fantasy draft format. The players will be edited into your lineup. You don't have to use all of your guys but they are available as subs as needed. I believe in the past we had edited out home/road advantages to make all teams equal. I would propose doing the same here. I don't know if hot/cold ratings changes can be edited for players in SNES and I'm not sure I would want to do this anyway. To be discussed. I'm not personally in favour of turning off penalties, or editing the duration of penalties, but am open to discussing it. Depending on the number of interested coaches, my preference would be to run two divisions with the potential for promotion and relegation in the future. Under this format we can still do 1 draft, but coaches would be split off into two leagues. The number of games would depend on the number of teams. SDL IV was 15 teams and 56 games which I think is on the high side. It would be at least 40 games with checkpoints. If you're interested please respond below, and feel free to reserve a team. First come first served. We may have to cap the number of participants at some point and move people onto a waiting list, but let's see how it goes. See you on the ice buds. Sign-ups: See the list below compiled by Tecmo Jon. As of now the league is capped at 26 coaches so we are full unless people drop out. If you want to be put on a list to potentially replace anyone in future, just let me know. Edited January 1, 2021 by annatar 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
