Every new release of Madden we will conduct a draft for your team for the upcoming CFM.
We will position you, randomly inside of 8 groups.
1st group - Veterans that did not make playoffs all of previous edition of Madden.
2nd group - Veterans that made playoffs less than 50% of previous edition of Madden.
3rd group - Veterans that made playoffs 50%-99% of previous edition of Madden.
4th group - Veterans that made playoffs 100% or more of previous edition of Madden.
5th group - Veterans that did not play in ALL seasons previous edition of Madden.
6th group - Rookies who played in previous edition (Rookie = any coach who has not played 16 regular season games in MOF).
7th group - Returning veterans who did not play in MOF previous edition of Madden.
8th group - Rookies who never played in MOF before.
Coaches must start AND finish every single season of CFM without any unapproved leave of absences, to be considered in the first 5 groups of the next edition draft. Approved leave of absences include vacations, work leave, and personal reasons. If you leave the league abruptly without an approved leave and come back, you will not be eligible to qualify for a full edition completion.
From there we will have a draft lottery. Depending on which number you fall into in your group, you will get a default set number of lottery ball chances. So if you are a rookie coming in, you will be in the 32nd position only receiving 1 lottery ball. If you are in the first group you will get a chance at the 1st position receiving 32 lottery balls. The more lottery ball chances, the better your draft chances will be. There are multiple ways to increase your lottery chances before the draft takes place:
You will be able to purchase more lottery ball chances through Venmo with all proceeds going towards the league. It will act as a donation, and you can purchase 1 lottery ball for $1. Remember no matter how many chances you purchase, it does NOT guarantee you the #1 pick. It just increases your chances.
We will have contests throughout the year where you can bet lottery chances to win more. NFL Super Bowl box pool, MOF Super Bowl box pool, NCAA March Madness tournament to name a few.
You will have a deadline of the day of the draft order release to purchase lottery chances. We will broadcast the draft order release live on YouTube!
Once all the lottery chances are final, we will conduct the draft order through a lottery system using: http://www.draftpicklottery.com.
The draft will begin after the draft order is released. Once the draft begins you will have a max of 2 hours once the clock has started, to make your selection. We prefer that everyone makes their selection through Discord. If you feel like you might miss your deadline, you can always send us your top teams that you would like. (We will not count the hours from 12am-8am EST)
If you miss your selection, you have until the end of the draft to make your pick at anytime.
