Every season in each league a draft is conducted– a kind of talent fair where the best young players of the world participate in order to get a chance to prove themselves on the highest level. These are the players of the Junior Schools who didn’t sign contracts with their teams or were released for fee.
Players participating in draft are called prospects. The quantity of prospects equals the number of the teams in the league (32), multiplied by the number of rounds. At the moment there are 3 rounds. Initially skills and some other players’ indicators are hidden. Their visibility depends on the level of the Scout Buerau and on whether the player was examined. After the examination the talent and efficeiency are assessed:
A: from 95 to 100
B: from 90 to 94
C: from 85 to 89
D: from 80 to 84
E: below 80
At the beginning of every season each team is given three draftpicks, one for each round. Draft picks can be exchanged, among other leagues as well.
In order to choose the preferred players in draft, you need to add them in the draft list in advance. The players from the top of the list will be the first ones to be chosen.
On the 35th day of each season a draft lottery is held in each league to decide who will choice first three picks. Draft lottery can be won by any team in the league. Chances of choosing the first:
32 poisition in the league: 20%
The rest of the teams chances are 0,5%. Voting sequence for following rounds will be established based on the teams position within the league standings: the lower position gives the highest choice on draft.

2. Draft lottery is held to determine who has the first choice. The rest choose according to the tournament standing.
