Okay. The thread about who you would pick first for a player, gave me an idea. Let's have a draft. We can pick leaders, the number of leaders would be decided on the amount of players we have. Then, if you sign up, you can be drafted to the clan for a round. You can ONLY have the players you draft in your clan. Could be very fun, if people would sign up. Only last one round, of course. See which clan emerges at the top. Anyone interested?

Sounds interesting. Is it the same as picking 2 captains in a football match, and each cap choosing players 1 after another?

If it is, it would be great fun. Though I dont think many ppl would be interested in doing so.

Unless of course, it is forced upon us by the admins. Maybe make it as an event every alternate round, or every 4 rounds once, just like the world cup (every 4yrs)

Yeah, like that. Or, like the NFL Draft. Go in order, and such. So... It would require atleast... 30 people.

Game admins should make it an actual event

I think it'd be pretty fun, considering it might get people motivated to actually try and get picked by a good clan. But then again, the "leaders" might favour their friends over good players and we could end up with the same clans we have right now.

Either way, I think everyone would find it fun, even if it is only for one round. The only one who I think this might discourage is the the guy/girl that gets picked last. :P (hopefully not me)

an actual event? How would you like it to go? I could keep score and we could do something official if people are interested.

Give us a check box to check on if we want to participate, and if we are willing to lead.

Give us a vote on who we think the best leaders will be, those of us involved vote for who leads.

1st pick is random/lottery style, after that we go 1st goes last, last goes 1st.

Make the draft finish the day before the round ends. And if possible, auto-assign the players into the new clans at the start of the new round.

I say... On the Nations homepage. Have a button you can click that signs your account up for the draft. "Click Here To Enter Draft". Then, have a link under it, where it takes us to the names of those that have signed up for the draft.

Yeh, Cap I think something like this was discussed before here. I'd consider this depending on how it's all set up.

Have all participants vote for the leaders and have them pick draft style.

only question is will it be for tech or war
_ElessaR_ said on: 2008-07-23 02:34 am
3736 Days, 20 Hrs, 7 Min, 19 Sec ago
How about 6-7 ppl in 1 drafted clan, including the leader.

If we can get at least 30 ppl to sign up, we can have at least 5 very balanced full clans (considering that its a draft syle). Whether its for tech or war, its up for the leaders to decide.

For a start, lets vote for 5 leaders. If more ppl sign up, we may need more leaders.

My answer to Wolfblack's question of would draft round be for tech or war? would be for tech. Clan make up could put some very unlikley clan mates together who may have not been in same clan before and would better suited for teching I believe.

Tech, of course. Maybe the admins could give the winning clan, via alts, maybe... a round free of VIP, or, something.

Great idea! I'd love to participate, but I do not yet know how active I'll be next round. Most likely I'll miss like 1-2 days, but it could be worse.

There's still many details to discuss and decide. For example, if a member is inacive for 3 days, the leader may replace him if he finds someone else.

Say 30 players sign up, 5 per clan.

Id say lock the clans, if someone ends up going afk or missing days or what not, just drop them.(not replace)

Stop voting for the leaders before we even have 50 players.

Go go go.

Anyone else?

but how will things work? the leaders will create new clans? if yes, what will happen to the current clans?

I think we grab about 30 - 40 players...
But I estimated the amount.

We probably have about 20 players.
