Rules explanation, pasted from the general chat thread:

The rules are different from official fpl but not difficult to understand. There's a few key differences:

You don't have subs. You just select your best eleven from the 100m budget. You have 40 transfers for the whole season. These can be used at any time, with the exception that no more than 5 can be used in a single game week.

You can set a captain for every day there's a league game on(granted you have a player playing on that day).

Points are allocated for goals assists and clean sheets but there are also extra points on offer for passing, tackling and shooting counts(it makes some of the more defensive minded midfielders more viable for example).

3 bonus points are given to whoever's awarded man of the match.

The nature of how the transfer system works along with the ability to have multiple captains in a gameweek is a key part of the strategy. You can set your captains in advance for each gameweek so it's not so stressful - however if you make a transfer during the gameweek(which you can do, right up until the earliest kickoff on any given day), you may wish to change your captain as part of your strategy. Just for example, you may have Salah and captain him for the Saturday game. Then, before first kickoff on Sunday, you may transfer Kane in for him, thus having 2 really good captain choices over those 2 days.

I like the captain every day rule, it makes watching games more interesting.

This is my team at the moment:
Ederson
Coleman VVD Zinchenko Guilbert
Jota(Wolves) Maddison Fraser
Auba Salah Sterling

It's much easier to make a strong team in this game if you sign up a cheap enabler like Guilbert.

Yeah I like the idea of a cheap enabler. Boly was good last season. This season I’m starting out with Norwood.

Also worth noting you get a wild card in week 5 so you are only picking a team for the 1st 4 weeks now.

Big fan of the SS and have played it for about 10 years.

... but the motm points awarding drives me mad. There's no rhyme or reason to it and if your players happens to be playing in a sky televised match then good luck unless they happen to be the media's latest darling for the national side (insert Kane, Lingard, Rashford, Alli, TAA here) as it's decided by one of the match commentators/pundits.
