    I have some holidays around the corner, and I might miss the draft sims. When is the draft pool revealed, and how does the draft work? I’m hoping I will be able to load in some rankings or something so my picks don’t have to be simed.

    According to our wiki, draft pool should be revealed February 26, or Free Agency sim 3. Best guess IRL is end of next week or Monday following.

    I would be willing to help you out via PM if you won’t be entirely out of pocket.

    I won’t have Internet access, how does the draft work with an online league? Do managers somehow rank players and then we sim a few rounds? (I haven’t experienced a draft in this league)

    When the draft pool is revealed in-game, you’ll need to make a list of guys you’d like. We hold the draft in 3 parts: a Round 1 sim, a Rounds 2-3 sim, and a Rounds 4-10 sim.

    Let’s say you have the 5th pick in the draft. For the first sim, you’d need a list of 5 guys. For the second sim, you’d need a list of 13 guys. And if there are any guys you’re still interested in for the 3rd draft sim, you’d make a list as long as you like.

    If you won’t have game access, you could probably PM your list to someone.

    So to clarify, once I was the draft pool, I could make a long list of players, do my export, and that would last for the entire draft?

    Yep…just make sure to copy the list to all rounds. We’ve all made that mistake before πŸ™‚

    Last question, I hope, if i am just not available, does the AI do a decent job drafting?

    Usually not πŸ™

    I’d get someone to draft for you if you’re not available. If you want me to do it, just send me a PM. My drafting record is fairly crappy though πŸ™‚

    Well, AI drafts for you only if you haven’t made a list for each round – if you only have a list for round 1, then your screwed for the rest. Best method – make a long a$$ list in round 1, covering as many rounds as you care about, then copy and paste it to ALL ROUNDS (as stated above). Then in the third round, your highest ranked remaining player gets drafted and not a catcher who’s a 2/3/1/2/1 and a 2 position rating…. Oh, and no arm…

    I’ve always wondered if the AI bases its choices on things that we don’t about that affect how the players will develop. I’ve never been bored enough to do a comparison of human-drafted players vs. AI-drafted players, but I wonder if the AI uses some of the hidden player development fields to select guys that have a possibility of breaking out or surpassing their initial potential, as displayed in-game.
