I'm not part of the league but randoms prob best idea anyway. Keeps things interesting. No one knows if they'll be rebuilding or competing yet. Like real GMs you don't choose your team, you kind of take first job you can get unless you're a stud GM. So there's some realism to it.

Randomizing the team's players. That removes some realism but might make people happier because it will auto fantasy draft and everyone should get a star of some sort. The only issue is the amount of trades will likely be enormous as people will try to make links and get favourite players and so on and so forth.

My suggestion: Keep it simple, random teams, same players. Again, i'm not part of league though.

If we do go random, this is what I'd prefer.

You're both in. Still a few spots left, since some GM's haven't PM'd me back for the activity check.

If we do go the random route, which seems to be what's going to happen, we will definitely go with the current rosters, and not do a fantasy draft.

Thanks for the input, makes a ton of sense.

I am sorry I just saw the PM now. I'm still down.

Can two players be on one team? Or is it one person per team? I dont really know how GM Connected works fully, but I'm stoked for it... lol.

Let's do this!

BTW: Random sounds great, or picking a team sounds great, either way... Im fine with it!

It'll be one person per team, unless every single team can find another player, and even then the logistics of organizing 2 vs 2's will be much more intense.

Since the league is leaning towards random teams, I will be selecting the teams either this evening or tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Just wondering, if people agree to play 1 vs 2, can we do it?

If they agree, I suppose we can, although I would want to avoid it, to keep things fair.

I'll go through the list tomorrow to confirm everyone that checked in for the activity check, and then I'll let you know.

Yep, random seems like the best choice at the end. Adds realism to it. Can't wait for the picks.

Just lost my PC, so I am going to go buy a new one, set it up, and then randomly choose the teams.

Anyone have a random number generator website I can use? Something that goes up to 30.
