The IDL Winter 2010 Season Draft will be conducted Tuesday, Dec. 15th at 8pm EST LIVE! The draft will be broadcast over the airwaves of Unidoom Radio, which can be accessed from right here! (http://radio.youfailit.net:9380/stream.ogg.m3u) For those that prefer the more traditional method, feel free to log on to irc.quakenet.org #idl where all information will surely be relayed in text format.
If you are new to the concept of the IDL, it's simple to understand: IDL is the premier 3vs3 Capture The Flag league on ZDaemon, which employs certain characteristics from modern professional sports like the NFL (especially in the way players are drafted into teams). The teams are divided into two conferences as well as divisions within those conferences. A typical regular season will run around 9 weeks (one match/map per week), followed by divisional playoffs, conference championships, and the MasterBowl.
After six successful seasons, the IDL concept is here to stay. Seasoned veterans and new talent will work together or collide in the most anticipated season thus far.
The draft should end up being roughly an hour in length and will be done in multiple segments. The first segment will harbour many festivities such as the "Round Table Discussion." The other segment will be the draft of 16 players from the player pool (8 players will have franchised to a team already). Those who are not drafted will be placed on the immediate reserve list, which will be utilized in the event of inactive players needing to be replaced.
An additional segment after the draft is finished may take place, where callers can participate and engage in various discussion and offer their predictions/outlook on the season once the finished teams have been established (more info on this will be available in #IDL).
The live broadcast may have an upward limit on the number of listeners so getting connected early is the key to hearing everything live! Remember, the text results posted to the channel are likely to be on a delay so be ahead of the game and get connected to the draft early for the quickest transmission of information, and the opportunity to hear Ralphis mispronounce everyone's nickname.
