<b>Muzicgrl's</b> <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13356" target="_blank">post</a> got me thinking. That new Penny Arcade thing has me thinking too. Even if we don't have a draft in the "official" VRAA, we could have a Fantasy VRAA, where you have teams and a draft. The simplest method would be to have a group of people probably the same size as the number of VRAA teams and have them draft in order after some random selection. You could also have randomness by round: I get to pick first in the first round (i.e. everyone gets to pick one player), but maybe I pick 4th in the 2d round. I haven't done fantasy sports, so I'm sure there are many other, and probably better, ways to do this.<br><br>
The main issues that I see are: 1) No one wants to get picked last and 2) Some may not want to be part of these Fantasy teams. I think we'd have to respect people's wishes to "opt out" of being tracked for any Fantasy leagues.<br><br>
Thoughts?

Whoa. That's taking the VRAA to entirely new level.<br><br>
Let's see how much interest there is in this. We are open to new ideas. So far, we've followed the basic goals of the VRAA: To provide motivation, have fun, and to include as many participants as possible. Its helped that we've designed a simple system for gameplay.<br><br>
That being said, there's no limits to what we can do. Let's see.

I don't mind being drafted.<br>
Uh, as long as I don't get picked last. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Interesting.<br><br>
It'd be a weird little game within the game. Weird can be good. Or it can just be ... weird.<br><br>
One potential problem: if, say, 30 people wanted to field fantasy teams, it'd be awful tough to field competitive teams, seeing as we only have 60-80 VRAA players. If a lot of people want to play, y'all would probably have to allow players to be drafted multiple times.<br><br>
If there's a way to make something like this work without undermining the basic game, I'm with roots: I'd listen.
