Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

Chilltown is right. The best drafts are one where you need to build a team of sorts and taking BPA at all times isn't the best strategy, by creating "positions" your team needs to fill you introduce concepts like scarcity/value of respective positions etc that make the strategy of picking the correct team much more interesting.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

if someone wants to take 15 dreamcast games cuz they think the dreamcast was the pinnacle of gaming excellence then let em

this isnt like a baseball team draft where it makes sense to draft a 1B, 2B, SS etc. the categories are needlessly restrictive

Dreamcast actually did have a pretty extensive collection of elite games.

I was going to say that Erin Phillips girl that NoodleMan discussed in his 15k Post Thread was hot, but then I GIS'ed her and discovered that he found pretty much the only decent photoset of her and she is not very attractive.

[undrafted] is still my favorite game of all time, and so far above and beyond anything else that existed at the time it is kind of mind-blowing.

You're pointing out the wrong people. Assani and epi are actually the exact opposite of this, and are great for Drafting purposes. They will argue actual points. Arguable points. And not just randomly take their favorite players (at least not without an argument that doesn't include: I just wanna build my favorite team/studio/album).

No offense to the following poster, but LuckyLloyd is actually a prime example of what is being stated here, ainec. Look up the Hollywood and rap drafts.

Yeah...epip's argument of Gastinaeu in the original NFL draft was so horrifically awful that it may have just ruined that whole thing.

You're referring to epi part 2...the constant troll.

Epi part 1 was genuine in his arguments.
Edit: regardless if he believed them or not, it was good for the draft. Infact, it is kindve the essence of the draft. To be able to make an argument for your player/team.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

I'm almost positive that if given the two top picks in an NFL draft he would take Brady/Moss. Then again its more likely that he was full of **** most of the time he posted about the NFL.

The Gastineau thing is his NFL peak though. Was such a stupid argument. I liked how he said "he was wrong" then would turn around and say he was right. It was pretty epic at the time and though it was kind of annoying...it was ok.

He just became unbearable in the NFL threads towards the end there and it was unfortunate because there was a point where I did defend him/enjoy him as a poster. Meh, I'm sure he, TuT and greear10 are posting under some accounts on here somewhere.

Yeah that's ridiculous, imo. It's clearly top 10 at best.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

i missed that nfl draft thread. id imagine it just mirrored his nba mchale thing.

i dont think any of those guys are posting, they just troll on skype. well, epi did try to troll bobbo with one of his old gimmicks. bobbo claimed it was already on ignore despite only having like 5 posts. good look by bobbo.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

I feel like that NFL draft did more good for the forum than any other draft. It brought a ton of attention to good stats and how to evaluate players at a level that at least the fan could try. And there was a ton, and I mean a ton, of amazing information in that thread.

Seriously, probably the best read on 2+2 football wise. It destroys everything else. I know F60 gets on me when I say the forum was better years ago, but man...that was peak NFL imo. I also wasn't an arrogant depressed ******* at that time either.

McLovin is a positive poster, a good person, and he NBAs like no one's business. He brings the up to TZ's usual down. I dare you to come at him.
