Welcome back everyone, good to see the old faces biggrin.gif and hopefully we'll get a few new ones and old ones returned.

Might be a good idea to sum up what was discussed at the end of last season and perhaps continue it on here inbetween the registrations so it's all together in one place.

The 11 starters in 4 ranks got a bit overwhelming for some, including me and it's been suggested and to some extent endorsed that we go back to a simpler 1 - 2 - 4 with maybe 3 or 4 subs per team, a squad approach. The highest scorer forming a 5th Horseman to keep the bench keen and meaningful. Obviously this can only happen if we kept to 6 teams with around 60 players so more caps and teams would ideally be the solution.

I will be doing less, the teams will do their own scores so just a little bit of tabling and collating should suffice as admin.

Warriors appear to need a new cap so that should be interesting.

LCN will need to sort their own captaincy and VC issues out too.

2 VC's has been suggested btw, seems a good idea.

Stuff like in-season transfers and perfect order bonus could go in the bin to keep it simpler.

The weekly awards seemed popular, bit fiddly but can be kept if wanted.

Arena cup was fought quite hard and tactically - perhaps more than some managers liked! laugh.gif

There must be other things like player allocation, retention, new teams etc that need discussing too so feel free to speak your mind, change is not a bad thing and all views are welcome.

Ah welcome aboard mate! Villarg and I have battled grimly in s11's Fantrax Div 2 for a few seasons, always trying to avoid relegation to the 3rd! I believe he had his 1st go at FPL last season and did quite well so teams will no doubt be keen to recruit him come allocation time.

Arena is a simple concept mate, teams competing against each other each week to win the title. Each team consists of players allocated into ranks, each rank totalling an equal weighting but consisting of more players as you descend the ranks. So the top rank consists of 1 player scoring 100% of his/her FPL weekly score whereas the bottom rank, if 5 players, score just 20% of their score, so 5 x 20% = 100%. The captain decides the ranks each week and puts the order on the gameweek thread. Each team has a team thread where bants, discussion and players' teams can be posted (or PM'ed) so the cap can decide the order.

That's basically it but pre-season is always tricky as we don't know how many players or teams we'll have until basically the last minute so we have to make a call on how it's to be run and be a bit flexible and pragmatic re latecomers and allocation etc. It should all be sorted by or soon after gw1 but we do get started gw1 so it's often a bit tense and erm things can get interesting. Then it settles down for the season without too much fuss. Hope you enjoy it and have a great season. thumbsup.gif

Unconfirmed Groupings, please let me know if any are wrong. Obviously early doors and the numbers are already good so just a matter of waiting for captains and numbers to bulk up before we can sort things out. I'll see if NoNayNever will really join and dunno who the heck Beanflicker is (Bertie?)! ylno is Villarg and his allocation will occur once we get the captains, game and an idea of numbers sorted. I'd expect around 60 but could be more or less so best just wait for now.
