    I am happy to announce that we are ready to hold the drawing to determine where we all pick in the Team Draft. Rather than a random draw, we have devised a fun new way for all of you to influence what pick you get in the draft. I have created a Deal or No Deal type game, where you can pick a case and then have the opportunity to swap your case before you open it. We think it will bring a lot of fun to the process, and allow everyone to actually have a hand in where they draft. I will even host the individual games on my Twitch channel for everyone to see!

    • We will give owners first opportunity to play, based on their records in played seasons of M15. Those with the best records will play first and work towards those with the worst. We hope to have the order wrapped up this weekend, so we may have to go out of this order at management's discretion. Ultimately the odds won't change a whole lot from 1st to last.
    • There will be a game board with 32 "cases". Each case will contain a pick number from 1-32.
    • The owner that is playing, will select a case and that will be "their" case, but will not be opened.
    • They then have the opportunity to open up to 3 other cases (one at a time), and see the picks within those cases.
    • If they choose to open a case, they then have the opportunity to take the pick that was in that case, throw that away and open a 2nd case, or take "their" case and whatever pick it contains.
    • If they open a 2nd case, they can take the pick within THAT case, throw away that case and open a 3rd case, or keep and open "their" case (they cannot go back to the previous case).
    • If they choose to open a 3rd case, they can keep the pick in THAT case or throw it away and keep "their" case. If they choose to open "their" case and reveal the pick inside, THAT is the pick they get.
    • Once an owner has played the game and "locked in" a pick, that pick will be removed from the game, so that no 2 owners can get the same pick.
    • Once all 16 owners have played the game, we will eliminate the 16 picks that are not owned, and that will give us our Team Draft selection order.
    • Remember; there is no guarantee as to what pick you will have when your game is over (unless you have 1 or 32). For example, 2 could become 1 if nobody gets the 1st pick. You can only move up, you will never drop (because we will be eliminating 16 picks).
    *Edited...we have decided to allow 3 cases to be open, since there are a total of 32 picks. Remember, anytime you open a 2nd, 3rd, or your own case, you are discarding the cases before them.

    I hope everyone has fun with this! I spent about 9 hours today working on the game console! It is an excel file, and if anyone is interested in the file, I will gladly share. Also, all cases/picks are randomized and will be re-randomized before each owner plays the game.

    Here is the order we will try to play the game in (based on M15 played record):
    1. Lawon (MrWitness36)
    2. Reis (Mugga)
    3. Curtis (thafuture3886)
    4. Troy (redlishus)
    5. Jim (LtJustice)
    6. Doug (CHUNKNESS)
    7. Moe (CaptMoe)
    8. Chris S (CSteud)
    9. Carl (Casino)
    10. Avery (AveryB)
    11. Chris M (MoonBBad)
    12. Jon (Warhawk AKA dreadman)
    13. Michael (Michael Overman)
    14. Quentin (Triple111's)
    15. Nasir (Nasir)
    16. A.J. (Xandozer) (No complete seasons in M15)
    Thanks everyone! Let's have a great season!
