balance team is like trying to win a league without Round 1 and Round 2, it's possible but difficult.
normally i'll at least get 2 top-tier player just like how people normally get from snake. (first 2 round)
people know how important their 1st round and 2nd round pick in snake draft, that applies to auction draft too.
I agree with CS that the studs and scrubs approach is better in auction styles. We will reach a point, pretty quickly, that players start going dirt cheap. There will also be some inflated bids as guys with money fight over the last scrap at a position. I do a roto style basketball auction and balance is MUCH more important in that format, not so much in the h2h world of football.
