Introducing your own personal Draft Sheet

[Image: c7f0f6b82750c18f7ad1e62fe1291108.png]
You can access your draft sheet from the Armor Critical lobby menu at the top.

To use your draft sheet, you will see a list of names on the right hand side and the goal is to rank as many of the names possible on the left hand side. You should rank the names in the order you would pick them if you were a Captain in a CTA match.

It can be rather tiresome trying to rank ~100 people, so we have added a Save button. You can also edit/modify your rankings as time goes on, which we encourage you to do. Hopefully in the future we can provide more incentive to keep your draft sheet updated.


What is this for?
We understand how many issues there currently are in getting a CTA match started. We want to eradicate the issues of selecting captains, or picking teams. The lists from all the community members will be combined to achieve a community ranking.

We want to move away from statistical ranking because as Drew Carrey would say "Welcome to CTA the tournament where nothing is fair and the stats don't matter. That's right, the stats are just like the plot line of a porno film. They just don't matter".


If you have any questions, feel free to ask below... if you are going to be critically negative without being constructive, don't bother replying! Smile

Cheers.

BTW: When you see him, please make sure you thank Odoacer for the time he has put in.

Similar question: Is there a deadline for us to complete our draft sheets?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the rankings will always be up to date. When you change your draft sheet, which you can do any time you want, the combined rankings will also be updated. The draft sheet will always be available to you to change your own rankings which will then reflect in the combined results.

It depends on whether the community takes a 'set-and-forget' attitude or not. The rankings will be as up to date as the community allows them to be.

Although it may be necessary to edit out inactive players from time to time.

How are the rankings compiled? Is it simply just averaging out each individuals rating based on all the submitted draft sheets? Or is there a more in-depth way you calculate them?

The reason I ask is this; I see some major flaws in it if it's just simply averaging all the draft sheets. First off, I mean no disrespect and I my intentions aren't to bash this idea in any way. Captains picking teams in CTA just absolutely suck. Teams are lopsided more often than not. So I admire the attempt. I just can't help but notice the glaring problems in doing it this way as well. Maybe I'm not entirely right though in how this is implemented, so someone can enlighten me more on the matter.

My issue:

1. Trolls/Bias - Anyone can simply make a list to purposely throw off the legitimacy of the rankings. Now this might be a bit obvious to those looking at the submitted draft sheets, and perhaps they can simply remove this kind of garbage so it doesn't affect the results. Some natural bias is to be expected though. InSoMnIaC, for example, may consider his fellow MS teammates (NormL, ProPlayer, etc.) a lot higher than the rest of the community. Thus he ranks them accordingly. This type of ranking contributes to an inaccurate list.

2. Low tier players - Obviously, anyone is able to fill out a list and submit one. Theoretically, the more you receive, the better the results. A small pool wouldn't be ideal. HOWEVER, you are including low tier players this means. Low tier players generally don't know what qualities makes a good player. That's not an insult. It's common sense. They aren't good players themselves, so they usually aren't the best judges when it comes to evaluating players. So the "worse" a player is, generally the "worse" the draft sheet would be. Not always the case, but more often than not this is true.

3. Unknown players - I myself right now don't even feel confident/comfortable making a list, thus I haven't so far. I don't wish to contribute to making things inaccurate. I looked at the draft sheet, and my first thought was "I literally don't recognize more than half of these names." So this was my thought process after I realized that. Do I submit a draft sheet with only those I do know from this list of players? I can attempt to make it accurate that way, however, if I only rank 30 players from this list and I make NormL #30 (last on my list), does that mean I'm ranking him #30 overall? I'd be ranking him higher than ALL the unknown people I omitted from my list, when in reality NormL might be more like 70ish had I known who all these players are. Obviously, I can't do the opposite and rank everyone on the draft sheet either despite not knowing them. That even more so would be wildly inaccurate.

The general consensus is having 2 captains in each CTA pick a team simply doesn't work. For one it's time consuming, and it also a lot of times yields uneven teams. This to me though isn't much different, the way I understand it anyways. It's just basically telling every individual out there "Hey you're the captain, now pick a team from this list of players". It's the same system, only on a larger scale. Like I said though, I know this is a new idea and still in the early stages.
