DCL Draft Selection 2022

First things first, you need to be on DCL – The Game. The FPV drone racing simulator is available on Steam, PS4, and Xbox. The entire Draft process will take place in-game. 

Here’s what you can expect in the DCL Draft Selection 2022: 

  • The Draft Qualification will take place in DCL – The Game over a period of slightly over 3 weeks starting on Saturday the 19th of February 2022 at 12noon UTC until Sunday the 6th of March 2022 at 12noon UTC.
  • Your qualifying time will be the sum of your best times on all 4 Draft Qualification Tracks. Make sure to grind on all 4 of the tracks to increase your odds.
  • Thereafter, the top players (based on times recorded) on each platform (200 Steam, 50 Xbox, 50 PS4) will be issued an online form (via email) to complete. This form will guide the team owners with their player evaluation. They are looking for pilots who are fast and reliable on any racetrack, but also in search of those who have good technical knowledge, a grasp of English and are comfortable in front of the camera. The form is also a “get to know you” opportunity where you can show your personality and experience/achievements outside of DCL.
  • On Saturday the 12th of March 2022 starting 12noon UTC, a 24-hour window opens where each of the qualified pilots will have the chance to set their fastest time possible, on a brand new track in DCL – The Game. Whilst you have 24 hours to practice, you will only have 5 attempts. This is to simulate real life racing circumstances where you cannot afford to make a mistake.
  • The password to this track will be sent to the email from the form submitted so it is vital to check your inbox. You will NOT be sent the password to join the track if you haven’t filled out the form.
  • IMPORTANT: Upon completing the form, you accept that you agree to be picked by ANY team. You are NOT allowed to sign a contract with a team BEFORE the picking process takes place. Pilots doing this will be disqualified from the Draft Selection.
  • Team owners will contact pilots directly through the contact details shared on the form. Picks will be announced by the team owners to DCL on Wednesday the 16th of March 2022. Teams will have turns one by one to announce one pick, starting with any new team, then the team that finished last in the Championship of 2021, followed by the team in 6th, etc, and ending in the team that won first in 2021. This process will continue until all teams have finished all their picks.
  • Teams are allowed to trade pilots after the picks are announced with a predefined trading window.
  • An official announcement revealing all the picks to the general public on all relevant channels will follow, in late March 2022.



You cannot take part in the Draft Selection Race if you haven’t replied to the email from the DCL Team.
