Noted SPower. I never gain any advantage by running two teams as they never meet in the H2H leagues. I never set out to have both teams in the Rapids Classic. That's the bleeding website dumping both teams in there.
And also, I'll never win anything to worry others. Steps are being taken by me prevent this happening again.

An Apology ...
For the past 5 or 6 MLS seasons, I've run two identical squads with a similar team name. To get to the point, I have been rumbled in a successful gameweek one for running more than one team. I have taken steps to change Team and Manager names, plus future player selections. The MLS website placed both teams in the Rapids Classic League and I could not alter the selection.
I'm in the process of apologising to MLS players
However, the consequences could well be my removal (Rules are Rules). I await the outcome. I sincerely hope the Starting 11 leagues remain active, no matter what.
Albert
p.s New team name is Armitage

No worries, Albert. Appreciate your efforts in setting up (and advertising) both the Classic & H2H leagues. thumbsup.gif

However, I've been looking at the scoring details and player price changes after week 1, and it looks like the FMLS admins have a lot of bugs to fix. laugh.gif

It'll be even tougher this year with the new "rolling transfer" system where there is no hard deadline, and players don't lock until just before their game starts. Such a "hands-on" format would be really difficult to manage with the time difference between North America and Russia agree.gif

Not just that! It's tough even as solely a Fantasy Football game - sometimes you almost have no time to pick your team, let alone doing the searching... luck aside, you have to be skillful. One of the toughest FF games ever... I'd say the toughest! agree.gif

Still love MLS but as an observer now. smile.gif

No, not the same email address. I used a similar team name, Stokie Bloke and Stokie Fella and fielded identical squads. An obvious mistake of mine that was open to complaint. Still actually trying to sort out my two public ID's on the site that's slow to respond. But, i'll get there.

Only three gameweeks into the new MLS season. Very pleased to report bp9000 and Albert have made it into the top 5 overall MLS placings.
Albert's second team is quietly close by (but we don't talk about that)

Taught a lesson on how to select a successful MLS team in gameweek 7 by bp9000. Well done Sir and may your momentum continue. Team Brian Coral is currently second in a very strong Classic League and eighth in the Head to Head.

Cheers Albert! Just to add, the team that leads the S11 Classic league is currently 3rd on the overall Fantasy MLS leaderboard.

The H2H league has been very competitive as I have lost 3 of my 7 matches, even whilst currently sitting at 13th overall in FMLS.

Can you explain how you can wait to see if Melia gets a clean sheet and if he doesn't transfer in Seitz?

I found that odd, too, cause once a game has started, if you selected a player in that game, you're stuck w/him. Unless there's some weird mechanism where you can have two keepers?!?!

You put Melia in the keeper spot on your bench. If he does well, then simply leave a non-playing scrub in the starting keeper spot (or change out Seitz to a non-player) so that Melia will sub in at the end of the game week. If Melia does poorly, simply transfer Seitz into the starting keeper slot and as he plays you will take his score and leave Melia's on your bench. You can make any changes to the starting slot as long the player/team hasn't played yet.

This makes perfect sense if your squad has 3 goalkeepers and/or you have unlimited transfers.

If you have 3 'keepers:
1. Good 'keeper
2. Good 'keeper
3. Non-playing 'keeper

You put 'keeper 3 in your team, and have 1 and 2 as your bench 'keepers.
If bench 'keeper 1 scores well you leave your team as is and his points will come in to replace the non-playing 'keeper 3.
If bench 'keeper 1 scores badly you replace 'keeper 3 in your team with 'keeper 2.

HELP!!!

"Team Substitutions

You are able to substitute players right up until the beginning of that player's match. Once the player's match has begun they will be locked out and changes cannot be made to that particular player until the end of that game week. You can substitute players who play in the same position or change your formation in accordance with the rules of a Valid Formation. Click on the substitute buttons for the two players you want to switch. You can substitute players for any position as long as it results in one of the allowed starting formations. "

I was reading a tips thing about playing one goalkeeper then bringing in the other if he doesn't score well. But above looks like you can't substitute a player once he has played???

What you need to do for this "keeperoo" ploy to work, is put an early-playing GK who you think might do well in the bench spot, and put the later playing GK who you also think may do well in the starter spot.

If the GK in your bench spot in fact does well, then you can drop your GK in the starting spot and replace with a scrub who you know won't play. Often there is a 4.0 GK with a bye who you can slot in starter spot. But even without you can look at the lineups before each game and find a 4.0 GK who is not in the 18 for that game.

If the GK in your bench spot scores poorly, then you have another bite of the cherry with the GK you had put in the starting spot.

I have done this the past 2 weeks with the Friday home game 'keeper: Marinovic 2 weeks ago and Bono this past week. Both earned a CS, so I was then able to switch out my "atarting" GK for a cheap scrub who I knew wouldn't play. This also frees up funds to use elsewhere for the week.

You can do a similar thing with the 3 bench spots for the field players. Since no player is locked until his team's game start time, you can put 3 early playing players who you think might do well or want to take a flyer on a particular player, and if that player scores high enough for your liking, then you need to put a cheap non-playing scrub in one of your starting spots, so the bench player will sub in automatically for the scrub (known in FMLS as an "autoroo"). Better yet, if you end up with 3 subs and only 1 or 2 of them score well, the system automatically gives you the highest scoring sub's points first, as long as it creates a legal formation (i.e., at least 3 DEF).

The problem with this is that you have to keep checking the lineups before each game and making changes to your team, which of course can be a substantial issue in re: one's real life rolleyes.gif laugh.gif
