Well I am at a crossroads now... depending on how this next round goes and who is, and is not picked I will be going in one of two very different directions with my card.

It is really a shame that Lenny missed his last pick; but we waited as long as we could. A 2nd round pick is a big loss; but of course he didn't whine about it being the stand up guy that he is. I do have a list from him just in case though, may pick for him shortly as he is currently on the clock now. 

But for the most part I think the drafting has been quick compared to seasons past, that first round went quick. I would say so far there have been no big surprises as far as who has been taken. Most of the current and recent top names went quick. 

People also have made good use of their double picks. Everyone gets a double every few rounds and it's always the person who has to wait longest in each round and not always the same person. That's why I like the rotating draft.

Crap, I didn't even realize we had made it to the halfway mark. I need to get my analysis up sooner or later here. I only just now fantasy booked my own card, and am crossing my fingers I can get the last of my picks made for the later half of the draft.

Also, while writing up my card in Notepad, I found another text document on my computer that had a whole ticket wars card I have yet to put together. It's actually pretty good. It's totally doable too, I might have to use it next season. lol

Aye, that's awesome when you find a document like that. I myself am already mentally planning things for the next Ticket Wars season as well. 

I think the picking has been quick this season, both because we have a slim eight and those eight are all regularly around and know the drill. 

I had pretty much easy pickings of whom I wanted for the first nine rounds and then all of a sudden people on my want list start to get snatched up. My 10th round pick (the one I got from Colly via trade) was actually a gut wrenching decision; as I knew that it was likely my last chance to get a certain person but I also really wanted to secure who I did pick for what I think is an awesome match. That "certain person" whom I passed on was Paige, whom just as I predicted didn't last (good pick, Lenny.) Now I think Lenny might take Paige's opponent with his next pick and I dread it Tongue  as there's more people I know won't last, and I don't have another pick to middle of the 12th. 

That's all the fun of this game, of course. In theory anyone at any time can go to the Creative section and write up an all time fantasy card with whomever they want. But the fun of this game is that you are limited to who you draft, you can't use whom someone else has, and you have to plan who to take and when to take them while worrying about loosing such and such of a person that you want. That makes it interesting I think and it's half the fun.    

And there are still a lot of names out there.

I think after this season Ticket Wars should go on a hiatus for a little while.

Its taking over the forum again and alot of people dont post elsewhere 

Plus it will give people more time to plan cards etc

Dont get me wrong im a huge fan of Ticket Wars and Kondor has done wonders creting it to be what it is but Adders has also done wonders getting this place to where it is and during Ticket Wars season - the rest of the site takes a bit of a hit

I don't buy it. Tw only ups site traffic. If wrestling is crap no o e would come here at all without tw.

In all honesty I wouldn't be posting here at all right now if it weren't for ticket wars. I don't like what I'm seeing on the main roster much at all and I am quite ready for another couple year break from wrestling in general.

But the site is a wrestling forum not a fantasy booking forum

I love Ticket Wars but its not something that should run all of the time - maybe once a year or twice a year

Whilst you may not be a fan of the current product, plenty of people are  OR they still watch it regardless because prior to this Ticket Wars starting - there was plenty of site traffic

I do disagree people will post when they have something to post my lack of activity at the moment isnt because of ticket wars its because I have no Internet and would prefer not to type all my posts from my phone.
At the end of the day though everyone will have their reasons for not posting .

Completely agree with that. I'm only disputing the claim that TW decreases site activity elsewhere.
