Draft Room Nightmare


Draft Room Nightmare

So last night, as I'm preparing to kickoff the 2025 MLB Experiment Rookie Draft.. The craziest thing happened, a commish's nightmare, what would have been a less prepared commish's head on a stick and I just want to share with fellow commishes, as well as Guy, if this type of thing has ever occurred for them:

So I'm about to skip the "opening pick" (FA Holding Team aka Baseball Bat Logo), and have the draft begin with Toronto having the first pick.
I (KCR) agree to a last minute deal with Joshanddez (BOS), involving all 3 of his picks coming my way. Here's where it got nuts..

I went in and did the 3 overrides. I did NOT alter the order in any way. I HADN'T skipped the bat logo team yet to "start the draft", even though the obligatory 60 sec clock was now obviously expired, no picks were made. My point is NOTHING ELSE was touched. Just the 3 overrides 1,2,3 BOS to KCR. I had no reason to resave the draft order, as it wasn't altered whatsoever.

When I came back into the live draft room, all hell had broken loose. Lol

THE DRAFT ORDER WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF ORDER !!

I know I didn't accidentally hit any of the "order generating buttons" like Team Strength, Last Yr Standings, etc..

How the heck did this happen ? Has ANYONE ever had this or something similar happen to them when draft room was open ??

Re: Draft Room Nightmare

When you went back to the draft order page, did it match the crazy order in the draft room?

Re: Re: Draft Room Nightmare

Yes actually it did, I believe..because I remember the Tigers ended up #1, FA Holding Tm was #2 .. 3rd was either Jays or Cubs.

Re: Draft Room Nightmare

It must have been an order-generating button, I am just not sure why or how it would have been triggered...

Re: Re: Draft Room Nightmare

But I didn't re-save the order. So even if I were to have hit an order generator, having not re-saved, the original, correct order should have still been the order, right? Or does it 'autosave' after any reordering? I never 'not save' an order I make, so I'm not sure. Lol

Did not recur when tested in test drive

Obviously Avila. Lol

Nor has it ever happened to me or any other draft room I've ever been in for that matter. Hence the post.
