    Default 2017 Nerdery Draft - Sign Up & Discussion Thread

    It's been a while since we've done a Nerdery event, which I apologize for, but since it's around this time of year that we do the yearly Nerdery draft, I figured it is as good a time as any to do another, so hopefully we can get enough people to sign up for this... a minimum of four, though sixteen people would be ideal but I'll take what I can get.


    Draft Rules Courtesy of Voxtz

    - The draft will go in snake order (first person to start- to the last, then then next round of picks starts with the last- to the first, back and forth, round and round)

    - You will have 24 hours to make your pick

    - If you miss your pick , you can make it up at the end of the draft.

    - If you draft a mantle, you have to be clear who you're drafting- for example: don't draft "Flash", you have to specify Barry Allen, Wally West, ect.

    - If you draft a character you draft all of their incarnations. For example : If you draft Dick Grayson, you can use him as Robin, Nightwing, or Batman (but only one). If you draft Wolverine, you can use cartoon Wolverine, movie Wolverine, comics Wolverine (but only one). No cross-picks (one person can't draft movie Wolverine, and another draft comics Wolverine)

    - You cannot draft multiple characters per turn. Only one character per pick. No picking entire groups/races, ect.

    - You have 7 picks.

    - Please don't make it a habit to continue missing picks , if you know you aren't going to be on for awhile , PM your picks to someone to make for you.

    - you can draft any fictional character you want from any medium (comics, tv, movies, cartoons, video games, books, whatev!)

    I've participated the last two years and would love to do it again.

    Sign me up.

    I don't know how I'll top my Team Green or Planeteers team, but I'll start coming up with something.

    I'll give this another day or two, for any last minute sign- ups, before putting up the actual draft pick thread, sometime on Friday.

    Thank goodness I drew an early pick in the draft. Wasn't sure how long Urkel was going to last.

    I don't wanna list names, but just don't take anyone really powerful, or heck, even just slightly powerful.


    Let's be fair, guys. I wanna win.


    So, for instance, KJ. He took Superman. But that's rude. He should have left him for me.

    I had someone else in mind for my second pick but I couldn't risk Kid Jericho getting that Superman/Batman combo again.

    So glad you picked up Bats. I didn't need him for my team and I was worried KJ would get him and kill us all again.

    But then I see that you have Wonder Woman and Batman and thinking... is that any better for us?

    I really thought I was going to get Superman / Batman again, and I was just salivating.

    That said, Nightwing is a pretty damn good substitution.

    This may very well be Jeff's best idea yet, as far as a theme goes for his draft team, though, admittedly Team Green was pretty sweet as well.
