Progressive Pick Timers

Recommended Posts

I've come to accept the long how long some of the slow drafts take, but I hear people complaining about managers letting the clock expire on an 8 hour pick and then turning "Auto" off and doing it again the next time they come up. 

I don't know if that is true because I can't find a timestamp in my drafts, but I thought maybe a progressive pick timer would help with a situation in slow drafts where people keep forgetting and letting their pick expire.  I like being able to miss one and then turn auto off, but maybe there is a way to have them only get 6 hours the second time they miss an 8 hour timer, 4 hours the next time they miss a pick and then stay on 2 hours the rest of the draft (or go to full auto). 

Just a suggestion.

Totally agree.   You are actually being too nice, compared to what I had in mind.

Another suggestion would be to have a "chess clock" kind of time limit, so you have 6 hours (or whatever) for all of your picks in the draft.  Therefore if you draft relatively quickly most of the time, you never have to worry.

All of these suggestions make sense when you're dealing with a single league or a couple of leagues but when you're talking about hundreds and even thousands of leagues and thousands of team owners, a complicated timer will only make things more difficult, not easier. For everyone, including us trying to explain these new timers.

We now have a 2-hour clock option for Slow drafts so anyone looking for a faster Slow draft experience has the option to join these drafts. They tend to finish 2 to 3 times as fast as the 6-hour ones.
