FanTeam 20/21 thread

    I imagine there will be some interest in this with the huge increase in the prize fund

    €25 to enter a team. Game is rather similar to FPL, minus bonus points and chips, and one or two other minor differences. Had to enter my team via www.bethard.com (betting site) since the official FanTeam site doesn't allow entries from Ireland... (official FanTeam support on twitter advised me to enter via bethard as an Irish player... so shouldn't be any problem with any potential payouts)

    Anyway it'll be interesting to play it. Prize pool is massive this year: €1M total (minimum) on offer this year between all the prizes, with €200k for the winner, €100k 2nd, €60k 3rd, €40k 4th and so on down the line. €1k top monthly score (€500 2nd), €200 top weekly score (€100 2nd) etc.

    Introduction to the game: https://fantasyfootballhub.co.uk/how-to-play-fanteam/

    Anyone entered or interested in entering? That's some serious moolah up for grabs

    My team:

    Lloris (Meslier)
    VVD TAA Tierney Vinagre (White)
    Mané(C) Soucek Hojberg (Bruno, Stephens)
    Werner Ings Jimenez

    O.5m i.t.b. (I'm thinking Mané to KDB)

    looks like the overlay will be huge. any obvious points scoring differences to fpl.

    i had a look auba is an 11m striker in this. pulisic also 1m more expensive.

    Yeah there's some differences. There's no bonus points. Mids and fwds get an extra point for completing 90 mins. Players either gain or lose a point based on whether their team won or lost during the time they were on the pitch (so having more players from top teams pays off in this sense). Keepers who make more saves benefit too (0.5 pts per save I think it is). And for price changes the selling price is the actual price, so there's more opportunity to build team value.

    Anyone know what the story is with ‘Ireland’ not being available from the drop down list of countries when registering?

    I take it everyone is giving their Aunt / Uncle’s address in London for this? :-)

    Sorry, I scanned through the first post and only took “win money” from it!

    Says on Twitter there's only 7000 people signed up so far
    Is the prize guaranteed?

    They say it is. 7,521 out of 75,000 entries so far. There's a late entry option as well where you can enter a few gameweeks in and you start off with a certain % of points based off of averages.

    I’m surprised given the prizes on offer that so few have joined up so far. I thought we’d be hitting at least 40k entries at this stage.

    They do, you have to allow unknown sources.
    I have it but can't access the FPL section, goes to some weird page.

    Anyone know how to edit team name, my default one is ridiculous.

    Tempted to join this...

    The current payout structure almost guarantees a payback too unless someone has a nightmare season... if some places between 4500-5639 and they get €30 back.
