PermalinkFootball interested ? Look here (friends)
This is according to the Premier League starting on the 11th of August.

I dont know if you ever heard of Fantasy football ?

https://www.premierleague.com/home
Sign up in top right corner.

Basically you are handed a sum for buying players, £100 in this case.
Every player is given a value based on earlier performance,although "newcommers" to the premier league is given an estimate.

This can differ,you might end up with a bargain,or you might end up with a loss as long as value of the player can increase/decrease based on playtime/performance.
We have all seen in the past that players with a proven record in another league might not have the same success in PL.
Different environment/physical demands/language barrier etc.

Game is built by real time performance,there is nothing you can do except having belief in the team you setup.

I will give some quick info for those not familiar with this :

You pick 15 players,field 11 each round.
Your bench consist of subs,which you can change before a new round as you please.

Your bench does not count into the points you receive,so you got to pick the 11 you feel has the best chance to score you points before deadline.
Usually 11:30 -12:30 same day as the first match in a new round. I had a break last year,so not sure if they have changed it.

Points are as follow :

2 points for every player who has stayed on the field for 60 minutes +
If a player gets subbed halftime or in the 59th minute you will receive 1 point

Goalkeeper will get +1 point for every 3rd crucial save he does,from what I remember
(never really understood what they classify as crucial save ,cause Ive counted more than what the goalkeepers are recognised with in certain matches )

He will also net +4 points if he is able to prevent any goals.
+5 points if he saves a penalty.

Defenders will get +4 points if their team keeps the scoresheet at 0.
Midfielders +1

Now for the attacking part (goals) :

Defenders +6
Midfielders +5
Forwards +4

What the Gk gets I can't remember.

Every player with an assist gets +3 points,no matter where he plays on the field.

Other noteworthy points is
-2 points for "burning" a penalty,meaning either outside of goal or GK saves. GK will get +5 if a player shoots outside of goal aswell.

-2 points for a red card and
-1 point for a yellow card

There is also a bonus within each match. 3 additional players will receive +3,+2 and +1 point respectively.
Normally based on standout performances,man of the match etc.

I did some FAQ reading and it actually says :
"The three best performing players in each match according to the Bonus Points System (BPS) will receive additional bonus points. 3 points will be awarded to the highest scoring player, 2 to the second best and 1 to the third"

Transfers within the season is possible. You get 1 free transfer each round. If you want to transfer more you will get a -4 point withdrawal for each extra transfer within that week.

You can also save your transfer for upcomming round meaning you have 2 free tranfers the next round. MAX free transfers you can have saved is 2.

Each round you have the option to captain a player on your field,and vice-captain one.

This means,whoever you have as captain that round will score double points.

Example : Kane slots 3 goals against Arsenal as I believed he did this season ?

You would get +2 points for playing 60 minute +,+12 points for 3x goals,most likely 3 points for man of the match totalling 17 points.
With him as captain you would net 34 points.

Vice captain steps in with the same effect should your captain suddenly not play that round.

If there is a player among your choosen 11 who should not play.
He will be traded automatically with your 1st option on your bench,after round is done,and points are beeing calculated.

There is also a couple of bonuses you are limited to,which is :

1.Wildcard
The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season, once in the first half of the season (before 23 Dec 14:00) and once in the second half of the season.

Earlier they had 1 wildcard for when the january transfer market was open and 1 you could use whenever you wanted through the season,changed this 1-2 years back.

2. Bench boost
Self explanatory ,your bench will receive points the round you play it. 1 time bonus.

3. triple captain
Your captain is tripled instead of doubled upcomming round. 1 time bonus.

You can setup your team how you like within some restrictions:

4-4-2 , 3-5-2 , 4-5-1, 5-3-2 or 4-3-3 from what I recall. Experiment,just try changing what you want and game will either allow or disallow.

You are restricted to 3 players from the same team aswell.
Along the season players will increase/decrease in value.

Say you bought a player for £5.0 and he does good,he might increase to £5,6 within a couple of months.
IF you want to sell this guy you will get half the increase back,meaning you will get +£0,3 of the £0,6 he has increased.

This might open up possibilites for you on other players you could not afford in the start etc,if you are willing to sacrifice.
I think the value is increased/decreased based on how many % of the people playing the game has this and that player on his team.

I've been running leagues with friends/co-workers for 5-6 years,but had a break last season.
Normally we had a entry fee of £45 each person. cap limit of 20-30 people.
Got payed up front and put them on a different account.
Over the course of the season its not much considering there is 38 rounds to be played.
Payout was this :
1. 70%
2. 20%
3. 10%

What I will do now,is just for fun,but I will donate 1 360 game for each round based on the ones Ive allready completed.
Will make a list of what games there is to choose from over the season+ I'll be doing some more 360 games to add to that list.
I'll throw in a $25 gift card for usage on U.S server aswell (x1)

If this is of any interest I would like some inputs on the rewards.

1 spot Im thinking will get to choose first.
23 games + the gift card.

2 spot
10 games

3 spot
5 games

How do that sound ?
Same will go for me,If I get 1st spot,I'll choose what games I want to keep from the list etc.

Im setting up my team as we speak and I've called the league :

"Quest for glory" , had to implent a gaming reference.
You can change back and forth how much you like until the season starts.

MAX cap limit is 25 people. Free league
But im also considering a head to head league with no rewards,if interested,just fun.
Max 20 players I think that is,cant remember.

People allready on my friend list here on TA will get first priority,and if there is not enough football interested among you,friends of allready friends will hopefully fill up rest of the slots.

I have named my Team Freebirdx3,and would like whoever joins up to join with their Ta nick aswell,but some might have allready made their account,so no biggie.
Just more fun knowing who we all are,points rewarded is down to luck many times.
Its not to point fingers on anyone. There is hit and misses.

If there is anything Ive forgott or you have questions feel free to ask.

If not there is also a FAQ on the site giving you answers to stuff I might have forgott or did not explain well enough.

Cheers
Ivan

Well,as you have seen,Im still scoring points.

Why ? you may wonder.

I allready spoken with some of you,others Ive delivered messages through.
I will quikly explain in case there is something Ive forgott.


Yeah,I should have a break,and Im looking forward to that break,BUT.

As long as we are still in Gtasc,I refuse to give up without a fight,its just the way I am.
On my vacation I had time to reflect,look at what I neglected etc,took some coffe visits and spoke with people I cheerish.

From my stand,I was ready to call it.
Get back to my relaxed life,pick up on appointments/stuff Ive delayed.

Touching the xbox gave me no satisfaction at all when I got home.
I needed to switch focus,move my attention towards other goals.
I just wanted to finish Battle Island : Commanders before I tossed the towel.

Then after non-stopping that 20 hours last week,I took a break leaving me even further away from the 3000 medals needed.
I was tired and pulled out another quick game to get me motivated.
In Gtasc there was this bonus last week,where you had to start and finish 7 1000 G games within the week.

I looked at my backlog and figured,"what the heck,all these games got to go sometime anyway"
Our Team pulled through ( forgott to collect the bonus though :)

So we are still here.

As some know,I rented this apartment for 1 more month.
Landlord did not have anyone new before August.
I spoke with him last week and he offered me 1 more month,cause the new ones had gone back on their agreement. Propably found something cheaper. I said I would think about it.

Ive taken some classes this week,and will do the same next week.
Week after Im travelling along the shore of Norway speaking with ppl in the fish industry.

I looked at the calender and thats actually the last week of July,so I might aswell just do that.
Im getting it 40% off, from what I originally payed,so there is no point stressing atm.

I dont have a full time job waiting yet,but Im determined to land that soon.
Fishing is something Ive always been curious on,and I like hard work.
I always reach my goals,so I dont see why I should not land this.

There is 1 personal achievement I would like before Gtasc is done though.
And that is 1st spot on weekly TA scored,just because.

I was going to go for that this week,but seeing there was some crazy kangaroos bouncing all over the place,netting 15K TA within 2 days I figured this was not the week.

Shifted gear and slowed down,jumped on D4 instead which was imo an amazing game.
I do understand why this game got voted as best in its genre here on Ta in 2014.

I really enjoyed the look/feel of the game.
Story telling,music,the japanese touch. (Ive had love for japanese movies etc,in the past)
Some characters reminded me of MGS in a way.
Relaxing,no missables as you have the replay episodes option available to mop up.
You can just explore,discover and take your time enjoying the game.
The satisfaction of getting some of the diamond achievements is so much better when just going about your own buisness.

I did some research,and got alittle bit dissapointed when I saw the announcement of Hidetaka Suehiro resigning from Access games.
Letting us all know there would be no second episode of D4,what a bummer.
Hope this will change in the future.

Hidetaka Suehiro is also the director behind Deadly Premonition,which Ive been meaning to play for years.
I dived it years ago and my first impression of this game was really good,not the best of graphics,but the story seemed very interesting.
I wanted to play more,but continued my dive.
As a result,its just been stuck there.
After playing D4 I cant keep on delaying it for much longer.



If we manage to stay in gtasc this week,Im going for 1st next week.
Any challenge is welcome,guess I will start preping Adventure Pop etc,to see if I can get myself a good start.
Hopefully the Kangaroos are done puking out games by then.
Competition is getting fierce,but it is also enjoyable.

Theme for next week will be "Eat my shorts".
As long as nothing unforseen gets in the way,I'll push.

Will get back to agreements eventually.

Have a nice weekend peps.
