"All Captains and Vice-Captains must be selected prior to their team's game and your selections for Captain and Vice-Captain CANNOT be altered after their teams begin playing."

So if the vice capt has played, you can't change the captain? It's all Greek to me, and I'm Greek. angry.gif

I've emailed them, but I'd be surprised if they reply or fix it (if it is a glitch).

There's no mention that if either has played, neither can be changed.

The pts are wrong as well. KDB doesn't have his CS pts. I think many players don't have their tackle pts or successful pass pts either. They're a shambles. They'll fix it too late.

Anyway, they haven't got back to me. We Aussies are a joke at FF games. Couldn't organise a chook raffle.

You Aussies are also a joke at explaining obscure rules in FF games too.

If I hadn't fallen for your antipodean shenanigans, Lukaku would have been my captain, and Macey wouldn't be my second GK...

Had to look up the meaning of "chook" = chicken.

Is that where we get the phrase "chook your chicken"?

I think that's 'choke' your chicken.

OK, got a reply. Game still locked so they're aware of the issues, one assumes.

I noticed also that they're putting my Ake pts (2), instead of my Valencia pts (5), even though Valencia is first in my order.

The rules say nothing about which sub gets put on, do they?

Send a screenshot of my team, they ask me to send a screenshot. rolleyes.gif

Reply that I sent one in the previous email, but have attached it again.

Get a reply on why I couldn't change my team, "This would have been because once the game week has started, the game is in a lockout state, meaning that you are unable to make any changes to your team."

WTF? angry.gif

Have sent them a copy of their rule #5, "Rolling Lockout".

"Hi VS

We are aware of this issue and are going to have it fixed ASAP. We are sorry for the temporary inconvenience, but please bear with us.

Cheers

Team FanHub"


Yeah, well that won't give me back my Valencia and Captain Lukaku pts. angry.gif

Is everyone's team still locked?

Not locked anymore, but I'm prevented from dropping Macey due to some quirk in the pricing.

Getting closer to ABORT on this idiot game.

Yeah, it's not locked, but it's locked. I try change Zaha and it tells me something about needing 4 defenders. rolleyes.gif
If it's not sorted by this the weekend, I'm aborting too. Great concept of a game, ridiculously poor execution by the organisers.

WTF? You need to change to a 4-4-2 formation to make transfers. angry.gif

I had $1.8m left in the kitty, but some of my players dropped in price, so they took it out of my kitty.
Are these guys serious?

Kane was $11m and I had $1.8. Now if I sell him, I have only $10.97 to play with. $0.5m decrease for one bad week?
We'll be playing with $50 by week 8. angry2.gif

OK, so you actually get punished by having your team appreciate. WTF? rolleyes.gif

If your team goes up by $5m to $105, you have to drop a big player for a donkey in order to get it back to $100. rolleyes.gif
So much for planning your transfers. You get forced into a transfer you don't want if your team does too well.
Never thought I'd see true communism in a game of fantasy football. laugh.gif

Like Suarez mentioned some postings back. I also intend to keep it simple and treat the game like the official Premier League site. I accept that there may be a disadvantage with this action. Anything to avoid the stress.

From the T&Cs, 6d)

Captains and vice-captains

Each participant must nominate one player in their Fantasy team to be captain and one other player in their Fantasy team to be vice-captain. The captain will score double the number of Fantasy points he would usually have been awarded in that Game Week. If your captain does not play in any matches during a Fantasy Game Week, the vice-captain will take over the captaincy and will score double the number of points he would usually have been awarded in that Fantasy Game Week. For the avoidance of doubt, the vice-captain will only score double Fantasy points if the captain does not play in any matches during the Fantasy Game Week.

For example, if a captain scores 10 Fantasy points during a match, he will be awarded 20 Fantasy points (10 x 2). This also applies if a captain scores a negative number of Fantasy points (for example, if a captain scores -10 Fantasy points during a match, he will be awarded -20 Fantasy points (-10 x 2)).

If both the captain and the vice-captain do not play in any matches during a Fantasy Game Week, the bonus will be lost. No other player will take over the captaincy in their place.

Participants are not permitted to change their captain or vice-captain on a match-by-match basis within a Fantasy Game Week. Any changes made after the Fantasy Game Week deadline will take effect for the next Fantasy Game Week.

Who puts the rules in the T&Cs? rolleyes.gif

Too late now for me. Zaha injured and other players taking up my spare kitty have meant I'm forced to make 2 transfers I wasn't counting on. Can address the 2 non-starters another time. angry.gif

I'll try my trick one more time. Got nothing to lose. I doubt it'll work, but you never know.

One thing about these guys, they did reply to me every time, even if it took some time. Kudos for that.
