Post Box Office Draft 2017 Suggestions
Here is a thread for suggestions for next years game. I'm thinking we can draft a round of no penalty replacements. And it might be fun to try worldwide box office instead of domestic l?

I feel like people who draft top 4 or 5 have such a huge advantage over people with late first rounders. Not sure how to fix that though.

A worldwide draft would be surprising. I also agree with Flava on the Top 4 or 5 predictions. There aren't 8 movies that are lock for $400m+ in a year.

It could be fixed with a cap.

Does it really matter thought? Deadpool was 17th pick in group 1, while The BFG was 10th (in front of Zootopia, Moana, Suicide Squad, The Secret Life of Pets). The Conjuring 2 was 35th pick and it will do better than at least half of the movies before it.

Similar examples can be found in team 2. The snake draft IMHO evens this out pretty well. You just need to pick well.

Deadpool was a surprise that could have brought the person right in front of the list but now the draft might be Top 4 or Top 5. Its not about surprises or breakouts we are talking about $300m+ locks.

ID4 wasn't. You are picking up all the wrong examples. I am not talking about maybes, but locks like BvS, CA3, Dory and RO.

LOL. Last year pretty much most of KJ thought Independence would be huge. BvS disappointed. To many it was a surefire $400m+ movie. As far as we know Rogue One could disappoint also. The thing is - movies might disappoint and they might blow up. And we can't tell year in advance. Which makes the game fun.

And snake draft ensures that by the time the person who had the possibility to pick the highest grossing movie can only pick 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th or whatever movie of the year basically. And even then they might pick a movie that might disappoint as by then the picks get riskier. So as their first two picks they might end up with $450m movie and a $78m movie. And player #5 might end up with $320m movie and $250m movie. So it all evens up. Look at the current game. To me it doesn't look like the first players had a better overall draft than the later ones. I was the second to last player in 2015 draft and still beat MGKC who was the second player to draft and he had SW.

I'd rather just exclude some movies (like SWVIII) than putting any caps.

I didn't talk about changing snake draft and asking to remove SW8 and similar movies essentially proves what I was saying all along.

Who says anything about changing snake? Nothing proves your essentially useless posts.

A cap is the easiest fix, I would suggest somewhere in the neighborhood of 325-350m.

These are definites for the next year's game.

What will stay the same
1. We will remain with domestic grosses for this year.
2. There will remain a 500m cap

What will change
1. We will have a set, standard seeded drafting pool
2. We will draft enough movies that replacements will no longer be needed, likely over 100

We will agree beforehand on what movies to draft and then each division will draft the same movies. And I'm hoping people will send me rankings of the pool so that we can set a seed ranking.

So you want each player to rank 100+ movies for next year?

No they only have to rank as many as they feel like, though 100 would certainly help. If they only want to rank just the top ten it would be better than nothing.
