    I wouldn't increase the buyout amount. As it happened, I believe I was the only person to buy anyone outright and that was at the lowest possible price (300m).

    Most of the issues would have been alleviated if we had, say, 16 participants instead of 10. A handful of us (myself to a certain extent, definitely Enn and Joga) decided to save our money at a certain point knowing that there would be more than enough talent to fill out our squads once most people were done bidding. With more managers there would have been a real risk of the talent being too depleted at the end.

    I bought Matthias I think. I enjoyed the waiting game, made it more tactical and a bit different.

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    The one big advantage this format has over the usual snake draft is the speed. However, speed, and therefore the fun of the draft, can only be maintained with sufficient number of people. This is the complete opposite of the usual snake draft format, where too many people means the draft taking forever (I remember some drafts where I get a pick every 2 days). This is definitely a format that has potential for reuse, imo. A nice change of pace every once in a while.

    Looking at the evaluation it is from 1992 onwards, and that helped to seperate the best teams (very close).
