    Well the first mock draft has come and gone and it went about as well as expected. We only had to fire three managers before we barely got through a manual auction. Here are the lineups:

    The Mumbai Menaces managed by BHARATH_THEBEST
    SM OU: thethorn
    SM OU: ojama
    SM OU: cdumas
    SM OU: ban manaphy
    SM Ubers: thimo
    SM UU: xray
    SM RU: sabella
    SM NU: blunder
    SM DOU: mizuhime
    SM LC: star

    Coming in with a draft of exceptionally OU focused players, BTB eschewed what everyone thought would be the first pick to go with blunder. An unorthodox decision, we'll see if it'll pay off for him.

    The 777's managed by blunder
    SM OU: john
    SM OU: leftiez
    SM OU: zokuru
    SM OU: gondra
    SM Ubers: hugo barrington
    SM UU: teal6
    SM RU: flamingvictini
    SM NU: hootie
    SM DOU:biosci
    SM LC: levi

    A very strong start with some left-field picks in the later rounds, this suggests manager blunder has really done his homework when preparing for this draft.

    The Jesus Christos managed by Christo
    SM OU: soulwind
    SM OU: btb
    SM OU: ctc
    SM OU: rodriblutar
    SM Ubers: omfuga
    SM UU: manipulative
    SM RU: chillshadow
    SM NU: aim
    SM DOU: edgar
    SM LC: heysup

    While starting off fairly strong with recognized players, we have to question a certain pick on Christos team that suggest he may have ran out of viable names. Also I have no idea who to put in doubles.

    The Watashis managed by FLCL
    SM OU: abr
    SM OU: njnp
    SM OU: malekith
    SM OU: zamrock
    SM Ubers: evuelf
    SM UU: pif
    SM RU: badabing
    SM NU: jayde
    SM DOU:majorbowman
    SM LC: heist

    Trying to cram a lot of OU players onto the team, FLCL definitely has what should be considered the strongest SM OU core... but falls off a bit later as I'm pretty sure half of his lower tier players have never touched that tier before. 9/10

    The COPPAs managed by GOAO
    SM OU: tamahome
    SM OU: mcmeghan
    SM OU: axel10
    SM OU: reiku
    SM Ubers: astounded
    SM UU: meeps
    SM RU: bouff
    SM NU: accelgor
    SM DOU: ez
    SM LC: OP

    Similar problems with knowing literally no doubles players, GOAO also forgot that DPP is not in the tour. Otherwise his lower tier knowledge is sound.

    The Meeps Today at 1:28 PM teal let me daft or is it too late managed by meepsvictory
    SM OU: finch
    SM OU: tricking
    SM OU: p2
    SM OU: eo
    SM Ubers: the trap god
    SM UU: sacri
    SM RU: killintime
    SM NU: flcl
    SM DOU: hantsuki
    SM LC: kingler12345

    A few awkward fits but overall not bad, FLCL could easily play in basically any spot so got shoved in NU to accomodate others.

    The Star Did Something Embarrassing in OLT Call Like A Month Ago But I Forgot What It Was And I Wanted To Reference It Here managed by Star
    SM OU: pdc
    SM OU: blackoblivion
    SM OU: gtm
    SM OU: steve angello
    SM Ubers: m dragon
    SM UU: tesung
    SM RU: lord esche
    SM NU: level 56
    SM DOU: stax
    SM LC: ggggd

    Star got some knockout picks including SM Ubers M Dragon who is incredibly dominant, overall a good team without anything really bizarre

    The Yale Attending, No Door Having, Bodybuilders managed by -Tsunami-
    SM OU: trosko
    SM OU: jamvad
    SM OU: lysergic
    SM OU: bro kappa
    SM Ubers: dice
    SM UU: pearl
    SM RU: kushalos
    SM NU: soulgazer
    SM DOU: braverius
    SM LC: zoroarkforever

    Shake managed to draft a good team w/ someone for each spot. Who knows if Jamvad will actually play lol. He also lucked out with dice as late as he did because Posho picked him R1 but we then fired posho which reset his picks and the rest of us forgot.

    The Handsome Guys managed by teal6
    SM OU: alexander
    SM OU: sweepage
    SM OU: ricardo
    SM OU: z0mog
    SM Ubers: that lance guy who always writes 60000 words
    SM UU: ironbullet
    SM RU: arifeen
    SM NU: shake
    SM DOU: kamikaze
    SM LC: goao

    The best team on the list.

    The Guy Who Replaced The First Four Fired Managers Team managed by atomicllamas
    SM OU: posho
    SM OU: reyscarface
    SM OU: nintendi
    SM OU: mazar
    SM Ubers: pohjis
    SM UU: bushtush
    SM RU: col49
    SM NU: realistic waters
    SM DOU: miltankmilk
    SM LC: zorodark

    Overall pretty good team, I have written a lot and this has taken me a while so I'm kinda out of words

    peace
