Draft Rules

1. Every player must have at least one full game online.
2. Initial squads will be formed of 12 players.
3. Snake style drafting.
4. You have 4 hours to make your pick, if you send your pick via PM to the next manager AND @Synco you get additional 4 hours.
5. Once the pick is posted there is no going back, in case of a invalid pick the next manager doesnt need to wait but the invalid pick and be replaced anytime.
6. One club, one nation rule. Which means if you picked Nicky Butt you cant anymore pick from - England, Man Utd, Newcastle, Birmingham and club named South China.
7. Nation rules - We going by the first cap for the national team, if the player didnt play for the national team we go by the place of birth. So in case of a player playing for multiple countries they will count/block just the first one - Puskas(Hungary not Spain).
In case of countries that dont exist anymore, if a player played for a new country after playing for the non existing one he counts as a player of the new country - Prosinecki(Croatia not Yugoslavia or Germany), if the player didnt play for the new country he goes by the place of birth(current borders) - Khurtislava(Georgia not USSR).
8. No teammates rule - to avoid pairing up players from different countries that played only for non existing one - Khurtislava and Shesternyov for example. Only big final tournaments - World Cup, Euro, Copa.
9. Career peak - 3 years. Which means 3 seasons so in a formation picture you will put Gerd Muller(71-74) which means from season 71/72 until the season 73/74, summer tournaments will be accounted on either side so summer of 71 before the season and summer of 74 after the season goes into evaluation.


Match Rules

1. There shall be no subs during the game, but tactical changes are permitted.
2. In the event of a draw, the winner shall be decided based on the goalkeeper standings from the Caf. In case both goalkeepers are not on the list the winner will be decided by a non playing draft member - @Synco


Reinforcements

QF - you can drop up to 3 players from your squad, you will get to add 2 new players. Dropped players can be picked by anyone, even by a manager that dropped them. After the RR your team should fit the draft theme, max 1 player per club/country.

8. Career peak - 3 years. Which means 3 seasons so in a formation picture you will put Gerd Muller(72-74) which means from season 71/72 until the season 73/74, summer tournaments will be accounted on either side so summer of 71 before the season and summer of 74 after the season goes into evaluation.

Added this, most players if not all dont stay the same for longer then 3 years anyways so in terms of a which version of a player you are using its as good as you gonna get + it gets rid of one season/tournament wonders.
Its a common practice to use 3 year peak but we never actually mention the peak years and plently of oldies get a free ride IMO while current lot gets destroyed. Lets even the playing field.

Can we play different peak versions during the draft? e.g. SS Scholes and later DLP Schloes

So, player needs to be played in same position as his peak? For e.g. can somebody pick Desailly's Milan peak years and then play him at CB?

Surely you can play him anywhere you want to, it's just how people are going to rate him there?

If so, what's the point of picking 3 years? Positional peak is the default rating system, right?
The point is in specifying the actual version of a player. If you’re going to misuse him, that’s on you.

@Edgar Allan Pillow when you pick Desailly you dont choose Milan Desailly or Chelsea Desailly you are blocking all clubs he played at. When is game time you can choose what ever the 3 year period you want, if you pick a 3 year period when he was a CB and then play him as DM then its on people to not rate him as high as they would if you used proper years.
