What if we tried to schedule a 64 man Booster draft tournament. We could have 8 different pods schedule to start at different times for the different time zones. then on Day 2 the top 8 would compete in the 2nd Draft. Anyone interested?

I guess I could just schedule it on here myself if the mods are OK with that. We could just use a different IRC channcel as to not be "affiliated" or whatever. What times work best for you guys?

And does anyone have any ideas to help this run smoother? I was thinking if we have a longer time period for the first "round" like maybe even a few weeks where the different people can complete their pods... then we have a scheduled date for the Final 8 where hopefully people can set aside 3-4 hours to do it all at once.

Suggestions? Advice?

hardest will be to draft, but then as you said, for games there will be no problem...
btw question for all staff members: is there a chance to make something like one month limited sealed league? like getting 6 boosters on the begining and then each week like new booster or smth else and all signed should play at least i dunno... some games/week
after that top 8 draft for example...
is ML able to do such a thing?

If every match was a league match then it would be possible to make it happen without judges

I can be one of the 8 hosts. I am normally free after 9pm EST. Find hosts, then have people sign up for a time and host? Cogdill will probably be in, along with nunomogg and nikoleye. nammfoodle is usually on in the morning EST.

Hosts:
dikcoop
Cogdill
nammfoodle
Sakst82
frank
nikoleye
nunomogg?

I can imagine the following:

On 2 different times, 5 drafts are done. For these drafts, whoever joins first gets in first. People that are, 9th..10th..11th they won't be able to enter. The drafts would be organized by an experienced j2 or higher. This way, 10 players win a draft. The first eight would play the final draft, the 9th and 10th player being runner-ups.

All on one day probably lasts too long. It's definitely possible that that there's not enough players if the first round of drafts were run at the same time. 64 players are required!
If only 8 drafts are run in the first round, if 1-2 don't show up for round 2, the final draft might not be able to happen due to lack of drafters.

That's my ideas, i'll ponder about it some more.

Maybe just have 8 drafts and the 8 runner-ups can have a seperate tourney to till in the missing spot(s)

edit: I will also be willing to host a pod. I am available... basically any time as long as we schedule
