    All -

    Time to get this thing started!

    Rules:
    - You can play up to 5 people with your Draft Champions squad after you draft your team. You must use the same team for the group stage. We will re-draft at the bracket stage.
    - You can draft as many times as you like, but once you play a game, you must continue to use that team for the remainder of that stage.
    - All games need to be streamed by at least one player. You guys can decide that. If you can't decide, home team is first choice. Please archive the streams on your individual channels.
    - We will be contacting some of you based on the match-ups for streaming. So work with us on the scheduling. The Draft champion games are shorter than what you guys are accustomed to. So it shouldn't be a huge deal.
    - Ties in group play will be broken by avg points against. So play defense folks!
    - Results for each games must be reported in this thread.
    - Standard community gameplay rules apply, but these are shorter games. So here are some additional considerations:
    [

    PS4 - Please schedule and complete your group play games by midnight Wed 1/25/17.
    Xbox One - Please schedule and complete your group play games by midnight Wed 2/1/17.

    how many players advance out of group play to the brackets? Multiple players per group?

    How are brackets seeded?

    What are game play settings? Quarter length, difficulty, sliders, etc.

    How are games that cannot be scheduled being handled?

    - Top two out of each group advance. Sorry, I mentioned that in the podcast last night, but didn't post it above.
    - My next item on the TSO to-do list is to draw the brackets. Won't be anything crazy.
    - Gameplay settings are set as defaults in Draft Champions. I don't think you can change any of them

    That works great for ps4, but would yield four 1st round byes for X1. How would the byes be determined?

    Probably break those ties the same way we would break the others by using Points against.

    To your point, there will be byes given out. I'll attempt to find the fairest way possible to do that.

    Couldn't we just go with the 4 best points against avg amongst the 6 group winners?

    That is basically what I meant. Cheez brought up another solution that I'm looking into. Just need to draw it up and figure out what works best.

    Couple more questions Drifterbub

    How are games that cannot be scheduled being handled? Disconnects?

    Do disconnects count against your 5 uses for your team? If so, what happens if you run out of uses and have to re-draft?

    Games that cannot be scheduled are going to be judgement calls by Bob or myself. If one person attempts to schedule (on the forums) and receives no response, we will award a W with a default score. If two players cannot connect then we will do a draw.

    I would imagine disconnects would count against the 5 game total. If this happens, we will likely do a redraft or something.

    What's your schedule like? I'm pretty much free every night after 630est. Like to play after 830 though but can go earlier, and weekends are just whenever
