Hey guys. We got a lot to get through so lets get right down to it.
First off thanks to a slight miscalculation on my behalf (more of that to come later) we ended up with one player shy of what we needed. This then became 2 when one of the players we had signed up without asking decided he didn't want to play. We were able to replace one of those with crazedfan stepping up to help us out and SPA getting a seasoned PG vet as a last round pick.
Victor Rodriguez was offered the spot and was initially sceptical but is going to try out the event this weekend and then decide if he wants to stay on permanently. Moll has also expressed an interest in returning to the post-keeper system BECW world. I also suggested DankNabbot, Kings Gambit, GSPMadeMeGay etc as possible replacements and it would be nice to have a few back ups just in case. If you are interested sound out in the comments or shoot me an email.
Ohh boy was that ever fun. Most people would agree the draft is usually the best part of the whole BECW season and removing the keepers meant everyone went back into the draft meaning even more madness. You should all try and read through starting from about here.
I'll defer to Mendoza's wit and humour for this one:
PFP Kicks it off
The first comment deserving of a spot here. PFP shows off his glorious new team name.
In response to Punisher Bass drafting Katie Winter in the first round, Christian Diaz gives his analysis of the test that lies in front of KatGirl.
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 1
With his first pick, Joe Rogan's Smoking Bong selected Call Me Shark. A bit of a reach, but JRSB must know
something we don't, right?
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 2
Turns out that JSRB is so far ahead of the curb, that he stays 10 steps ahead of even himself, as he selected a late
round talent early on. Now he must beg for mercy from the next man on the draft board, PFP, who acquired that pick
in a trade with myself. A bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off.
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 3
It appears that the God of Insanity is a benevolent one. PFP has mercy on Bong and it looks like Bong just might get
his man. Or will he?
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 4
Nope, guess not. Although, I can't blame PFP. OBP appeared to veto Bong's request, making the whole situation a
bit of a clusterfuck. Can't get any worse for him.
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 5
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Never mind. It got significantly worse for him. This is the kind of stuff that belongs in BECW
lore. Will this saga come to an end for Joe Rogan's Smoking Bong? FIND OUT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF
DRAGON BALL Z!
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 6
...or right here. PFP allows Bong to re-do his pick, on the condition that Detroit Drew is still a Dickridah with
Ambitionz. Bong took LBO, with that pick. Call Me Shark kept on trucking, eventually being selected in the 4th round
by Punisher Bass, concluding this series of jackassery.
The Bong-Shark-PFP-Drew Love Quadrilateral Part 7
...buuut not before more fun would be made at the expense of JSRB, with some old-school BECW references.
Maavin wants to join in on the cockblock party
Maavin made two horrible mistakes here. The first is drafting KMcCaig, who is ineligible to be drafted, because he's
a goddamn captain. The second is actually wanting to draft KMcCaig.
Damn you, OBP
Well, I wouldn't be much fun if I didn't post any jokes at my expense. My former mortal enemy and now teammate,
Marcu$ puts out some low hanging fruit, and OBP capitalizes.
SPA was present for the draft in spirit
Sonnen's Political Advisor may not have been in the draft thread, but he made sure that his awful picks would leave
an impression on us. After drafting Forkboy in the 6th round, several of those in attendance pondered the decision,
as well as what to think of any of SPA's decisions.
The Return of TC Engel II: The Returnering.
After PFP drafted TC Engel, who is probably one of the few BECW players that should go undrafted, the picking
strategy of the British OK Cupid user was discussed.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 1
Christian Diaz put a cap on an admittedly stellar draft by taking -Neil- and Violent Newt in the last round.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 2
The fact that -Neil-, a historically good picker, fell as far as the last 13 picks was unbelievable. Diaz's choice was
met with much acclaim. You couldn't blame a captain for kicking themselves for not picking him much sooner. But
one man decided to show his love for the pick in a different, more alpha manner.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 3
Why, if it isn't our old friend, Joe Rogan's Smoking Bong? He approved so much of the pick, he decided that he
would pick the exact same guy! It's almost as good a pick as spending $10 on Steam to draft Jeremy Cthulier.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 4
Christian Diaz certainly approved of that pick. Him and Bong are clearly on the same wavelength. I bet Diaz is upset
that he didn't think of this kind of pick sooner.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 5
Of course, other players comment on the strategy of picking a guy that was already picked. Josh Hall's rating
system is certainly accurate in this instance.
-Neil-'s Odyssey Part 6
OBP decides to be a bro and gives a list of available players to Bong, despite the fact that the captains were
provided an updating list before the draft. Still, a nice act by OBP, let's see how Bong responds to this.
-Neil-'s Odyssey THE CONCLUSION
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Here we see a broken man, whose soul was taken by a long, tedious thing such as the draft.
Don't worry, Bong. The draft certainly doesn't get any easier, but it does get more fun. For me at least. Maybe not you,
considering we were laughing at your expense.
Punisher gets Punished(ment Athletics)
Punisher was a bit of a star in his own right in this draft. Not for any particular moments, just the fact that he was
completely terrible at drafting.
Oh, the ironing
Apparently, the irony of laughing at a captain's miserable failure was lost on our good friend, Bong. To add insult to
significantly more insults, he reply failed on this comment meant for Punisher Bass.
The end of the draft
Somehow, the guys who all were absent for this draft were all lined up next to each other, causing the last 5 picks to
be auto drafted. Oh wait, not all of them, because I traded my pick to auto KMcCaig, so I had his pick and was
skipped. So I'm short a player, OBP is a dick and the draft technically isn't over yet.
Post draft shenanigans
Oh hey, it's Murderfly! One of the rookie captains, who couldn't make it to the draft! Apparently, his excuse for
missing the draft is that he is some sort of mystical time traveler. Why else would he post this comment two hours
after the draft concluded, unless he's some kind of draft failure, as well?
Well that was fun. Thanks to Sugs for the recap, captains for captaining and Bong for provided the lols.
Teams and Divisions:
Right so here are the team lists and divivions starting with the reigning, champs captained by Manch1ld. Team Name to be decided but probably something about going to fuck myself.
Next up SPA. The autodrafting Gods were on his side as he ended up with a very solid looking side. Forkboy notwithstanding. Team name to be decided.
|Sonnens Political Advisor|
Now comes KmcCaig and his alphabet atrocities:
Rounding out the short bus division is ZSP
I used all my wit thinking of the name for the short bus division so here is the second division.
PFP and his Dickridah-Ambitionz.
Sugel and his one player short Memoirs of a Meisha
Christian Diaz so good we dont need a name:
|Our Bovine Public|
|Josh Hall :-)|
|Phenyl Engine Rods|
Fighting for second place in the division is Benten and his to be decideds:
The Hopeless division led by Joe Rogan and his Bong:
|Joe Rogans smoking bong|
Murderfly and his Genki Sudo's Spinning Sex Swing
Maavin and his team:
|Colonel Duke Lacross|
Punisher Bass and his Bassholes. Or something else fishy:
|Call Me Shark|
