In this series I have started with $25, and through Vulcun I hope to make some teams that end up in the money. Follow along with my drafting strategy and see if I turn out to be a big winner, or a bust!
Welcome back for day 2 of the Vulcan challenge! If you missed out on day 1, I have it for you right here. In this post I would like to outline how I did on my first day, and I would like to talk about the team that I have drafted for day 2!
This was the team that I drafted yesterday. I honestly couldn’t believe the caliber of players I was able to draft for so little. The biggest steals were the players of Gravity and they produced staggering points. Unfortunately TSM was too dominate with their map control, forcing an early forfeit, so I missed out on a lot of points that could have propelled me higher in the standings. However, I was able to win something in each of the three competitions I entered. After day 1 I have gone from $25 to $36.05! I tripled up in one contest and doubled up in another, while winning 5 cents in the free to play contest (told you that I don’t make much through those)!
Overall, this week had a very high potential for points through the players of TSM, CLG, and Gravity. There were pretty clear cut victories on paper, but not every week will have such great returns.
My New Team
This is the team that I will be running with for day 2. Sadly I don’t have nearly as much confidence in this team as I did in the one from day 1. However, I am still entering 3 contests with this team at $5, $1, and free. I really wanted to snag some more members from TSM for this setup because they are playing a floundering Team Liquid, but their dominating performance against Team Coast priced them out of my range! Instead I decided to take the players from Gravity that really showed up today. I doubt that they will put up massive points again, but they should still do really well and their price point fits what I expect from them.
Link has been playing better and better as the split goes on. Yesterday he was at a price point over $3,000, which was insane! Dropping down to under $2,000 made him much more worth while. This week I feel like I am taking a much bigger risk with the team, and I am certain you see why. I have two players on Team 8, who are currently tied for 8th place. Why am I doing this? Easy, they are playing Team Coast! Team 8 isn’t a bad team but make mistakes that the top tier teams punish…hard. Team Coast is not a top tier team. Therefore I expect a fairly high point output from Porpoise and maplestreet.
For my shot caller I selected Cop. He is easily the player with the highest potential, and until he gets priced out of my range I expect to see him on my roster a lot.
How did your last week go? Let me know below!
