As the great wordsmith DJ Khaled would say....another one!

The basic set up is...

5 groups have been set up, with each group consisting of 5 national teams. Each drafter will be randomly assigned 2 nations from each group = 10 overall. Each drafter then has to pick 1 player from each of these nations in whichever order they wish, as long as you use each nation.

The 11th player to complete your team can then be taken from any of the remaining 15 nations that you have not used.

    Time Limit = 4 hours

    Last time we used a 4 hour time limit, with the first round being a 6 hour limit to let people get adjusted to the draft. However, we have no newbies this time so it is a 4 hour time window from the start.

    As always, if you know you are going to be busy and wont make the time window, PM someone with your next pick. Or a pick, and a back up in case your first choice gets taken.

    You will have 2 "lives". If you miss your time window on more than one occasion, you are out and the players you had already picked are back up for grabs.

    @Dairee you are up first. You can start with whichever country from your 10 that you want.

    Being low in the list here is a huge disadvantage. Interesting draft though.

    It is and it isn't. Not sure everyone's first pick will be from a "big" nation.

    It'll be quite a tactical draft.

    Could a wildcard pick not take it though?

    Wildcard is the final pick.

    After everyone has 10 players we then move on to that.

    Quick question - would it be a good idea to remove the nations from the list of players after you have used that nation?

    What I mean is, Dairee has used Bulgaria so should we take Bulgaria away from next to his name? Might make it a bit tidier and less confusing.

    I take it you can pick players to have played for Czech Republic or Slovakia under Czechoslovakia?
