Fun with Fantasy!

Post by MacPhal » Tue Apr 17, 2012 8:17 pm

Welcome to my first Blog!

I will be using Manimal's 4.1b roster update, and ill be GMing the Toronto Maple Leafs. Also real names are being used and Fog of War is turned on.

As we all know its easy to get an OP team using the fantasy draft. So I will give me self some rules. I will include prospects as well.

1) I can only draft players that my staff suggests. And I can only pick 3 staff to take suggestions from.
George Armstrong (Head Scout)
Claude Loiselle (Ass't GM)
Randy Carlyle (Head Coach)

2) If two or three of my staff are suggesting a player I have to take him. I can only pick when each staff member has a different suggestion. (I still have to pick from that list of three)

3) I can't not guide there suggestions by using the filters and "From Listed Only" box

I will post each round and I'll post a screen shot of my staffs suggestions and the players Attributes.

At the end ill jump ahead to the NHL Team Power ranking for this year to see how we did and to see who the top teams have. (Because we know how good those rankings are :) )

If you have any comments or questions please feel free to PM me. Thanks for Reading!
