Draft night: Wednesday 16th October PS4 start date: Monday 21st October Xbox start date: Tuesday 22nd October
NO height limit
Based off of what we've seen so far in FIFA 20, we've concluded that 6ft+ builds are no longer the meta across all positions, and thus have made the decision to abolish the height limit that was initially put in place to encourage more variety in player builds. Thankfully we've seen that there are benefits to playing at a shorter height for the first time in 3 years, which means we should naturally see more variety.
Golden, Silver and Bronze Manager badges are up for grabs.
The way we award these badges is based on a points system. Your score as a manager is based on the following:
(+ 0-100 points) The percentage of players who play at least 2 games. Players who don't bother showing up can be removed from the roster via a ticket, or replaced in the secondary draft. (e.g. if 16/16 of your players play 2 games, you get 100 points)
(- 0-100 points) Any valid complaints we receive from players will deduct from your points or possibly even disqualify you from earning the badge. You will lose points based on the severity of the issue. All complaints will require proof. (e.g. if you're being very disrespectful to players/other managers or you're showing no interest in giving players a fair go)
(+ 1-10 points) Where your team finishes at the end of the group stage.
Minimum age of 18. Exceptions could be made if you've shown that you're a mature person for your age.
Experience in managing a Draft or AVPL team in the past. Exceptions could be made if you have prior experience in leading and/or have shown that you're committed to EGN.
This is an incredibly important competition for the growth of EGN, and if we want to ensure that there's constant growth in the Aus/NZ Pro Clubs scene then we need to be constantly bringing new players into the scene.
The big focus this competition is on player enjoyment, and if your only interest is in winning badges, then we respectfully ask that you don't sign up as a manager.
The draft will be livestreamed on Wednesday 16th October @ Twitch.tv/MisterSam, starting with the Xbox draft at 8:00PM AEDT, followed by the PS4 draft at 9:00PM AEDT. Team managers will be required to join the EGN Discord during the livestream and will take turns in picking players in a snake draft. All teams will draft 16 players each.
If you'd like to manage a team, please post in this thread with your platform (PS4/Xbox) and your preferred Premier League team. (must be a team from the 19/20 season). Once all Premier League teams have been used, we will use Championship teams for the remaining teams.
We are still looking for draft managers for PS4. Please get in touch with @Chadinho or myself if you are interested. Would really appreciate some of the senior managers of EGN stepping up and offering to manage.
