Here's how it works.

 

We call this game the "fantasy draft" which was a term coined for it by Bigballerju

 

 

A Season

 

The game runs in a season which is probably a couple months.  There is an open draft period where players select their teams.  Following that, the teams are locked and compete.

 

 

Select A Team

 

A team has seven members.  Each member occupies a Slot which is kind of like a "position" in sports.

 

For example, if this were a "Fantasy Baseball" game some Slots might be "Pitcher", "Catcher", "Right Field". 

 

In the CBUB Fantasy Draft some example slots might be "A Cartoon Character", "A Spaceship", "A Marvel Super-Hero".

 

OK, you get the idea. 

 

The Slots will be determined season to season and will probably vary wildly.  Considering that there are hundreds of characters in the CBUB Database to use an Admin will verify each team to ensure all the characters in the team meet the definition of their Slot before the season begins.  This will happen during the Open Draft period.

 

A player may have Five active team characters and Two on the Bench.  Players may swap their characters to and from the bench during the season at will.

 

If a player has selected a character which turns out to be a dud, they can bring a character which may do better off the Bench.

 

 

Individual Contests

 

When the season begins, the player's chosen characters will be thrown into contests with other characters of the same Slot Type.  These matches are random.

 

If "A Spaceship" was a Slot, for example, all the Spaceships would have matches.  All the Slot Types will be matched up against their like.

 

The match making program will attempt to NOT have characters match-up against the same character more than once.

 

Winning these contests gets the players team points.

 

A round lasts Three Days.  The Individual Contests will last Ten (or More) rounds.  Most of the Season will be Individual Rounds.

 

Team Contests

 

The players with the most points coming out of the Individual Rounds will move to the Team Rounds.  All other players will be removed from play.  Better luck with your team choice next season.

 

There will follow Two (or more) rounds of Team vs. Team match-ups.  (5 vs. 5).

 

The player which comes out on top wins the season.

 

 

Points

 

For the Individual Match round a win is worth 10 points.  A loss is worth nothing.

 

The Team Rounds do not have points.  Winning the match is all.

 

 

Winning

 

The winning player will have

 

A. Accumulated enough points from their team to be in with the lead players.

 

B. Win both all their Team Match rounds

 

 

Miscellaneous

 

Each season will have an MVP character - the character which accumulated the most points.

 

Characters will have season win / loss stats on their character sheet for every season they were selected and used.

 

Team Pages with the season stats of each team and their members will be a permanent addition to the CBUB to be looked at and admired by future generations.

 

 

Thanks!

Man I can't wait to see how this turns out :)  It sounds like it will be pretty cool

 

One concern though, is how will match set-ups be made? Will it be like a joint effort between the two people who have their character facing off, by pming each other?

Match-ups will be made by the Match Making Program (code name: Umpire).  That is, the whole thing is automated.

 

Umpire will not be adding any great Scenarios to the opening post, so they are pretty much like rumbles.  Here's two characters, who wins, kind of a thing.

Nice the automated system is the best way to go since that's how fantasy sports do it anyways. This sounds great.

Seems my question has been quietly answered.

Depends on the time commitment you're looking for. Also the level of intelligence you need. I probably lack both, but if I don't, then

I wouldn't mind volunteering to be a Fantasy Draft Game admin. Although I'm probably too new to this site (haven't been here long enough) to be considered for it which is completely understandable if you think so also

I'm actually just going to solo the Admin this Season One.

 

It's kind of a Beta Test and I need to see the bugs in action.

I have a question. How do spaceships count as characters? Are there characters inside the spaceship controlling it?

Er...  Well, you know.  If "A Spaceship" was a slot then I guess we would just assume it had its normal crew piloting it.

Are there any ground rules about the stipulations of each fight? Things like "prep time" "victory conditions" or "standard vs special equipment"? Or is it just going to be a "bring up whatever points you want to make for your character" type thing?

The automated system will create a match, but it is not going to put any type of stipulations into the set-up.  It is very much a bring-up any points wou want to make about the character kind of a thing.

Votes, I'm sure. Seeing as that's the point of discussing who would beat who.
