Oh, and as a result of that pick, Jason, I've added to your list of responsibilties. Now, you're also in charge of (if necessary) restoring Beli's old reviews that, according to EmP on the interest thread, are still in the database. So if, by chance, the friend of the Mutant Camels doesn't write like he's never written before, I don't get screwed over by that turn of events.

Oh....and my floor needs vacuumed and the dishes need washed. I'm far too deep in "Genius In Planning" mode to bother with trifles such as that, so.....well, I'll be expecting you on a plane ASAP.

I have a feeling what's hurting me is most people have more than twice as many reviews as me.

I'm starting to wonder why I even bothered in the first place.

Felix can't make it to the computer right now, so I'm taking this show over and picking as the amazing interim captain...

Mister_E

(note to Felix: hahahahaha take that, biatch)

If you don't believe me about Felix being unavailable, then go ahead and wait three days for him to log on again! So add MISTER_E to the team and finish up this draft. Nothing more to see here, folks. We're off to an exciting start!!!

No surprise there. The only question that might (or indeed, might not) remain is the mystery man or woman's identity.

Uh, I can make my own draft pick, Zig. But I guess we'll go with Mister E since it's clear who you're pulling for . . . Good grief. You better not let me down, M_E.

All right, there are two picks left and five people to choose from. Here are my thoughts on the five:

BigCJ34 - I remember critiquing this guy's reviews in the past. He's willing to listen and obviously wants to be in this competition (has posted in this topic to prove it). An underrated writer!

Randxian - Another guy who's relatively "new" yet has shown that he's more than willing to take advice and has just started to become a regular around here. Has good upside if he can land on a team!

Golden Vortex - My man Vorty has a ton of good reviews, so you won't have to worry about finding a quality piece in his catalogue to go against the competition. Plus, he has TT Championship experience!

Sashanan - Sash writes about games that usually don't get too much coverage, so you probably won't have to worry about the judges remarking that the subject matter in his reviews is stale.

Turducken - I remember liking one of this guy's reviews. I'm sure the other 7 or so that he has posted contain equally entertaining values.

For the reason Felix outlined, I'm shocked Sash is still on the board.

Thank you for drafting M_E, Captain Zigfried.

I will get to work.

I will take Vorty, because anyone that is commonly referred to by an abbreviated form of their full username simply must be good.

Laugh's on Felix if I remain unpicked. I joined the roster at his insistence.

Whoever remains unpicked, the three would make a good spoiler team.

But I suppose it is much too late to add in bye weeks and such. (Not that I'd mind. I could use the extra proofreading time.)

Now if someone can just poke Willthegreat to leave HGWars a minute...or maybe he is playing HGWars to postpone a tough final selection.

That's a good point about how people known by abb. forms of their username have to be great.

And that concludes the 2009 Team Tournament Draft. Schedules will be posted today or tomorrow. Remember, competition begins on Monday, June 22.

To those who weren't drafted, you are still eligible to compete in the event if a draftee gets waived. That has happened in the past. It may happen again . . .

Some of these teams are frankly frightening in their potential.

Of course, none even come close to matching the Zipp, Will, and Sashanan combo, but I have to acknowledge some good team picks.

Our fates are now intertwined. This should be an interesting tournament.

Good luck everybody!

This topic is now locked.

To those not drafted, don't lose heart: every year, unfortunatly, someone has to be left out, and in previous years it's even been people who have won the tourny before like Honestgamer or Golden Vortex.


For us. For them. For you.
