Fantasy Premier League 2016-17
« on: July 27, 2016, 09:30:52 PM »

After a small delay, the perenial LazioLand Fantasy Premier League has returned! I hope all those who entered last season will want to compete again and, of course, anyone else who wants to join is most welcome. I'd encourage you to enter at:

http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

If you played before then you will be recognised once you enter your email and password, if you are new to the game then regestration is easy. Once you have got your initial team sorted (don't worry if you want to change it afterwards, free transfers run until 11:30am GMT on the first day of the season - 13th August) then use the following code to enter the LazioLand League:

Code to enter LazioLand league: 511349-151316

It doesn't appear that there are any changes from last season but I will repost my (hopefully useful)
explanation of the 'chips' incase we have any new entrants:

> 'Chips': These were obviously seen as successful because they remain in the game. Ignore the silly name and think of them as new Wildcards, the original of which has now become a 'chip' too. Essentially you have three new one-off bonus scoring options available. They are the following:

All Out Attack - Allows you to play a 2-5-3 formation in the next Gameweek.
Bench Boost - The points scored by your bench players in the next Gameweek are included in your total.
Triple Captain - Your captain points are tripled instead of doubled in the next Gameweek.

Only one 'chip' can be used per gameweek. I assume that these have been added for a bit more jeopardy to give some tactical advantages and try to split teams that become all too similar after a while. Make sure you check the full rules page.

> Wildcards have become 'Chips'. There are still two Wildcards available where you can make as many transfers as you like in a gameweek BUT no longer is there one for any time and one in January. Now there is one available until the 31st of December, and one from then until the end of the season.

Other than that, here are some points to consider for any new players:

> 15 players in a squad, initial value 100mil.

> Choose 2 Goalkeepers, 5 Defenders, 5 Midfielders, 3 Forwards - Maximum 3 from any PL team.

> 11 players in starting line up score each game week.

> If a player doesn't play then one of your substitutes will automatically score in his place.

> Nominate a Captain and a Vice-Captain each week (can be any player in your starting 11). Your Captain scores double, unless he doesn't play in which case the Vice-Captain will score double.

> You are free to swap players between your starting 11 and substitutes before a game week starts in order to have in-form players playing, or to account for injuries.

> You may make 1 free transfer each week, any more will cost you 4 points each.

> If you don't use your free transfer it will roll over to give you 2 free the next game week (but further unused transfers don't roll over ie. 2 is the maximum you can make free any week).

> Remember to save your team once you have made ANY changes to it, for example moving players from the bench or changing captains. The save button is below the pitch image and the 'chips' buttons.

The Eivind monopoly was finally broken last season but now we have a new champion to try and knock off the top. Hopefully it will be a tight and interesting league again so good luck.

 :ops: What a way to kill the enthusiasm for 'The Lounge'; zero posts since I started this topic! Hopefully everyone is busy preparing their teams, although with only 14 views I doubt it...

Find it really hard to make a decent team this year, have already remade it many times and whenever I seem to be happy with my team I see players that aren't in my team and become doubtful.

Also no Mahrez for 5.5 anymore  :razz:

Didn't notice you started a new topic Ed but enthusiasm must be low due to me participating this year again. I mean, who wants to compete for second place?

Must say that the new lay out is horrible and that might throw my concentration and patience off  :ohnoo:

Ed, since you put so much work into this I think I'll give it a go and try to beat both you and the enthusiasm killer Rizmo  :beer:  haven't played any Fantasy for a long time so I might need some help but I think I'll figure everything out on my own...
