View Full Version : [Video] Tips for the aspiring drafter

06-20-2013, 02:37 PM
Alright so this is the follow up which I promised when I posted my video earlier this week. Part 2 of my drafting guide is pretty much solely focused on advice for the picking process. Some of what I'm saying won't make a whole lot of sense to new people unless you've already watched my first video, so I'm including a link of both here for you.

Part 2: Tips for the Aspiring Drafter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML2ZeVQeaD4&feature=youtu.be)

Inb4, "he thinks he's got jokes."

Lemme know what you all think of it this time around. We've had a few pretty interesting discussions on the forums here spurned by video's and articles which people have been posting.

I wanna say thanks to Plaga for putting together the simulator tool and letting me use it in my video. And again to Kemical for putting all the work into the database site. Do your part to support all the community members who are putting out some great content, subscribe to their sites / feeds and leave a comment or two.


Edit: It definitely winded up being a bit longer than I had hoped, I need to work to keep my videos down below 15 minutes, preferably 12. Need to find more time to go back and edit them a bit better etc...

Also, I wanna give a shout out to Jax the Hexxer, the video he posted yesterday or the day before did a really great job of describing multiple aspects of drafting as well, and in some cases I must say he did so better than I did... check his video out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZkgxG27NZ4

Good video, certainly helpful in working out what kinds of things I should be looking for in draft. Also I completely missed that draft simulator, so thanks!

Yeah, the simulator is definitely still a work in progress. So long as you keep that in mind it's definitely a lot of fun to toy around with.

Good work Funktion, +1. And thanks for the plug - I shall save you a place in my kingdom when I take over the world. :-P
