It's On

The summer is gone and the big event we've all been waiting for - the 2013/14 draft - has been completed. It's on!

About the draft last night; it was pretty exciting, as always, and it was great to see all GM's in attendance. It's not every year that such a thing happens, so bravo to all for making it. There was some exciting moments throughout the night, with a few GMs making surprise picks, while others spent time feuding at the length of time some people were taking to make their picks. That made for some interesting chats in the chat board.

On that note however, it was indeed pretty slow going at the start, but it picked up as the night went on with the later rounds going fairly quickly. Ever still, we will likely be dropping the amount of time available per pick next year. 90 seconds is a fairly long time, and perhaps not necessary. For at least one year, considering we have the option available to adjust things, we'll drop it to 60 seconds to see how that works. More discussion to come on that in the future, I'm sure.

In the meantime, it's just about 2 weeks before the games start. Let the fun now begin!
