Fantasy Football 2018-19

Post by Sputryk » Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:51 pm

Aye, it's back! :D https://fantasy.premierleague.com

If you were in the league last season, you should find yourself automatically included in the league when you sign up again - magic, eh?! For everyone else, use the following Access Code:

716302-191938

<IMPORTANT> Can ALL Managers, new and old, please leave an entry in this thread to announce who they are in the League. (And see below)

As usual the game is FREE to enter and you have £100mill to spend on 15 players. Either choose your own, or let the system randomly select them all for you. Until the start of the first GameWeek any Transfers you make will be free. Effective from the start of the first Game Week, only 1 (ONE) Transfer each GameWeek will be free, 2 or more Transfers in a single Game Week will cost you 4 points per additional Transfer. There are exceptions:

1) If you do not make a Transfer in any given Game Week, that free Transfer will carry forward to the next Game Week and therefore allow 2 free Transfers during that Game Week. You can only carry forward a single Transfer; it is NOT possible to have 3 or more Transfers in any one GameWeek free of charge. If you carry forward a Transfer so as to have 2 free Transfers in one week you will only be docked points for 3 or more Transfers being made.
2) Use your Wildcard. This permits, in one Game Week period, an unlimited number of Transfers free of charge. This Wildcard is only available TWICE during the entire season - once prior to 30 December, and once after the January Transfer Window opens - so use it wisely!

There are now 3 additional scoring benefits, called Chips - Bench Boost, Free Hit, Triple Captain. Each is available only ONCE during the entire season - so use them wisely!

There will (hopefully!) be a Forum Cup competition which will run independently of the Fantasy's own Cup.

IMPORTANT


Due to niggles encountered in past seasons, the following will apply:

1) Only RG forum members are entitled to participate in the RGF league
2) Non-forum members who join will be immediately suspended
3) Any Manager NOT announcing themselves in this thread will be suspended pending clarity (though I, as League Chairman, may relax this ruling for team Managers that I specifically recognise from posts in other topics. I do NOT view this as favouritism [and no discussion on this point will be entered into :mrgreen: ]) Suspensions will be mentioned in this topic
4) Any Manager suspended has the Right to an Appeal. Simply PM me with your real name, Forum name and team name (sufficient info for me to check the Forum for legitimacy)
5) The league will CLOSE on 1 September
6) Any Manager wishing to join AFTER 1 September MUST send me a PM with their real name, Forum name and team name
7) There will be NO admissions permitted AFTER 1 October
8 ) Only Managers that join BEFORE the league's closure on 1 September will be entered into the separate RGF Cup competition

This League Chairman will at all times play fair (as I am sure many of you will attest to from previous seasons). Errors are unavoidable and corrections will be made as swiftly as possible. Reinstatement following suspension will not in any way affect your points tally. Feel free to raise ideas etc - all will be considered. But most of all...

...ENJOY! :D

I am honestly trying this time round and still doing pants.

I just never seem to make the right decisions.
