I think the first four places are pretty set in stone now. It won't change. And as expected, we're all in the same $100M, between Spectre at #1 and Six at #4. It was quite a race.

Well played in the first round, the rest is highly debatable. :lol: But thanks regardless!

Didn't think I'd have a chance this year after winning last year and getting that low draft slot.

So i had seen someone ask this question, but now i can't find it or the response if anyone did respond to it.

when does avengers start counting towards our new year draft?

as for our current draft only the first weekend counts right?

so do we start counting from monday, or only on friday may 4th?


i'm so confused. i really wish i wasn't first pick..... wish i was second.

Avengers counts in the 2017/2018 draft.
We only draft films that open from May, so Avengers won't be available for the next draft as it opens in April, during this year's draft.

Not true. Because of the Avengers moving to the final week of April, we are instituting a new rule. If someone wants to draft a previously released movie, they can. But, using Avengers as an example, the Box Office numbers won't kick in until the second weekend officially begins (5/4). So if you estimate Infinity war will make $600M in its total run but $300M in its first seven days, that's still $300M for the picking.

I don't anticipate any other previously released films will be selected. Any film not chosen prior to Friday, May 4, will therefore not have its numbers kick in until the FOLLOWING Friday, May 11. By that time, all the wide-release films prior to Avengers will have petered out pretty well.

Not sure we've ever REALLY done it before... I don't want to make this like the NFL draft.

Do what you want. As long as you're not cheating somehow, trading picks is fine. I think we need to stay in the current year as well, so must trade 2018-19 for 2018-19.

I had absolutely no idea we were going that way this year, I thought we were doing as usual.
It seemed fairer that way as we usually can only pick films without knowing if it's gonna be a success or not, or at least how big a success in case of blockbusters.
So this new rule now means you're drafting a film already released, already banking money, and you can already know more or less, but with a certain precision, how much it will make overall. I think I would have preferred if we had done as we always do, only pick films released from the 1st weekend of May, to remain the fairest possible for all players, but if it was decided that way, I'll follow the majority.

I don't like it either, Chien, believe me. However, the majority decided that to have a Top 5 movie ruled ineligible because the asshats at Marvel decided to start the summer season on week early would be a huge waste. It's for this reason that we would be starting Avengers' tally on the second Friday of its release rather than on the day it's actually drafted. There is every possibility that, after the OW we all expect, it may not even get picked #1. It may fall as far as #3 or even #5, depending on what everyone thinks its dropoff will be. If it pulls that $250M OW, it could conceivably make as much as $500M more, or it could peter out like Ultron and only make as little as $250M. That's a huge difference.

What worries me is I have absolutely no recollection of such a debate amongst us. I either missed it or starting getting senile. I hope it's the former.
