draft glitch


draft glitch

Several of our GMs, me included, are experiencing glitches with the supplemental draft where it is not correctly following our rankings. I've told folks to refresh their browser after they move the list around, but that doesn't seem to be solving it.

Anyone else having this problem or can think of a way to troubleshoot?

Re: draft glitch

Rasnell what is the context of the issue? Depending when the lists are being used the exact order wouldn’t always be followed. Or is the issue that changes to the list were not saving? Was this for a live draft or a supplemental?

Re: Re: draft glitch

Supplemental draft, one round at a time. Not even close to following the list. An entire round of the draft can be executed, and a #1 player on a GMs list does not get drafted.

It appears to be a problem if you move players around on the list and fail to refresh the browser before closing out.

But I'm not sure. Just wondered if anyone else had problems like this.

Re: draft glitch

I’ve heard this complaint before about the rankings not saving but I’ve never been able to reproduce the issue. I’m going to make some tweaks and see if it prevents this from happening.

Re: Re: draft glitch

It's nothing obvious. Although it looks like it helps to refresh the browser if you move players around in the rankings. Thanks for looking at this.

Re: draft glitch

I've noticed some of this too. But I *think* it only occurs when I open a new window to view my roster and/or free agents. I haven't done it enough to know for sure, but now I close the 2nd window, refresh and reconfirm my rankings. It's like if there are 2 tabs open, it doesn't know which one to save. Maybe others can confirm if that's how the problem occurs for them.

Re: draft glitch

I had the same issue over the last 2 days. Where my #1 and #2 have been skipped over. The players who followed were instead drafted ahead of them. I simply chalked it up to the first two I ranked in order having their primary position be one that already had two other players I drafted earlier whose primary position was exactly the same. I selected the other players who are being skipped for their alternate positions, which I felt I needed.

Could it just be the CPU kicking in and recognizing as you already having drafter similar players already and it just bypassing the ranking order of your draft?

Re: draft glitch

It depends which draft you’re using the list for. If this is for the live draft room, and the commissioner has not turned on “use strict ranks” then yes the CpU uses your list as a guide.

I believe the supplemental draft would only skip players if you listed limits on certain positions.

Re: Re: draft glitch

It would also skip if they had the max allowed at a position as well wouldn't it?

Re: draft glitch

@SCM yes that would apply during a Daily Draft, true.

Re: draft

When is the next round supposed to take place. Plus, I also think players are being taken out of order
