Fantasy Football Forums | Starting 11 _ FPL Leagues _ S11 Fpl Draft - League A

Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 9 2018, 11:13 AM

Sorry this League is now full, it filled in under 24 hours! Please arrange a B League if you wish, bound to be at least 8 more, might even need a C League


S11 FPL Draft - League A

Code to join this league: 14612-4312

League Administrator: Netley Lucas

Draft Date: Sun 5 Aug 2018

Draft Time: 13:00

Draft Time Zone: Europe/London

Starting Gameweek: 1

League Size: 8

Netley Lucas XI
WALOR
Stokie Boy Albert.
Vamos Unai (MI)
RAPID
Dead Men Walking
Band of Muppets
Sleepier Jedis

Scoring Mode: Classic

Pick Time Limit: 60 seconds

Player Trades: All

----------------------------------------------------------------

Now we can trade this should be a better game. 8 is about right per League so like last season it's expected that at least another league will be needed so this is just the first one.

Please check the draft time & time limit and make sure it's okay with you. I've adjusted Trades to All, meaning you just get on with it, nobody can block or object.

If you wish to join this one it's purely 1st come 1st served, post below and join, good luck!

Let me know if draft time & date is okay bud. I've got it at 60 secs, seems too long but I know being on the turn is tricky as it can come very very quickly and 2 picks don't get twice as long so it probably needs a minute for comfort. laugh.gif

We should consider one league of 10 (more interesting) and wait for the likes of bp and TJ...

There's going to more than 10 wanting in so best have 2 x 8? Think we did that last season? Hold back and start a B League mate and if we get more than 16 maybe a C League?

Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 9 2018, 05:05 PM

What we should have done is kept all the flipping final places and done a promotion. So top 4 in each League into Prem and bottom 4 into Div1 rolleyes.gif Bit of fun though so best just enjoy it eh


Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 9 2018, 08:31 PM

Oh RAPID's joined ohmy.gif 3 spots left!

Thought he may have waited for a B team, hmmm, should be fun! dirol.gif

10 makes it more interesting to find gems every week while actively playing the game...

Plus, about 30% (and that would be a good percentage) will just leave their teams as they are forgetting the game...

Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 9 2018, 10:11 PM

WALOR, you ok with 10?

Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 9 2018, 10:22 PM

What will be interesting is when will the WC stars return and how soon will folk bid? huh.gif Kane's great but benching for a month and then the slow start! laugh.gif

Casuals!

Kane already on 37%. All these players currently in world cup will return a week before league starts biggrin.gif. I'm so looking forward to gameweek 1, world cup trap also the friday night deadline factor smile.gif.

I'm giving draft a miss this season, focusing mainly on fpl cool.gif

No, 8 offers much better chance of getting decent players.

If we have 10, and there are a lot of half-assed teams, those are the ones who will quickly lose interest.

BTW, I never totally lost interest, I just made lousy decisions, that's why I plummeted from top to bottom of the rankings...

Yeah, not sure where RAPID's coming from on this. He seemed to begin by wanting 10 for BP & TJ to join then moved onto more interesting picks.

8 it is, once filled someone can open a B League. Can we keep track of both Leagues though, because otherwise we've no idea what other folk are doing.

RAPID, you can leave this one if you want to play with BP & TJ assuming they do join a B League and not this? Up to you bud.

Been of FFS and all I see is Mendy? The guy's still on WC squad duty with 2 games left to train for. He still has to have a holiday and then do a proper pre-season and he's just got back from an injury! laugh.gif

I killed it by luck though, Kane 1st then wait ages for 2 midfielders and sadly 1 happened to be Mo! laugh.gif Only a moron couldn't win it by 200 and I even somehow got Gross quite early too. The def/gk pool is always great so with unlimited frees and a half-hearted league I couldn't lose and it killed it early.

I'll join, though I'll be on Auto draft as it will be minute here & gives me the extra challenge of make a team out of what I get .

Midnight? We can adjust the time to suit everyone mate, just let us know what a good time or window is. No good doing auto as you'll end up with the highest ranked players nobody wants for whatever reason, they may not even be in the game by then.

Doesn't it go by your watchlist ?
Thought one draft I was in last year a friend had an order for it to pick.

does draft have to be the Tuesday ? Sunday nights are good for me ? 8pm Perth time ?

Can't remember but I do know b52 missed it and got the highest ranked players nobody wanted laugh.gif I'd best check the rules, you could be right.

No the draft can be whenever we want, I just put at the end of July but it can be changed to suit everyone.

So Sunday nights? Start 8pm Perth time? What's that in the UK? 7 hours sooner? So 1pm on any Sunday? Fine by me but see what everyone thinks.

Depending on private league settings, you will be given between 30 and 120 seconds (default 90) to pick a player for your squad. If you fail to pick a player within the time limit then the following criteria will be used to make an automatic pick:

Select the highest priority player from your watchlist who is both available and in a position you still require.
Select the highest ranked available player in the draft list in a position you still require.

--------------------------

Yep, you're right, auto-selects highest Watchlist available so although it will drag it out for that 1st pick it will then get through yours fast as it assumes your on auto all the time unless you change it to online & manual. Still be great to have you around though so let's see if we can.

Yep, ideally to get everyone online to pick their teams by themselves! I don't want FF to auto pick! no2.gif

P.S. via watchlist is ok but still don't like it as you can change your mind seeing someone is picked (for example, if you want a club representative more than the next player on your list)... Watchlist doesn't allow this!

Fil Ferret is suggesting a Sunday at 1pm UK time?

Something to bear in mind, the transfer window is now open until Aug 9, although selling continues until end of Aug.

I've provisionally moved the draft to Sunday 5th Aug, 1pm UK time. The last Sunday before season starts, we should have most of the newbies in by then and it helps FF.

If this day & time is no good we'll change it and if FF can't be here then he'll have to auto-pick from his watchlist.

Posted by: Netley Lucas Jul 11 2018, 09:50 AM

Given we're over 3 weeks off the draft it's probably best if we all firm the draft time & date up nearer the time, say around start of Aug (to decide properly). I know AndyG has his pop concerts laugh.gif and FF's window seems narrow so we'll probably have a better idea nearer the time than right now.

I don't need or want to do a mock draft but if anyone does then please go ahead, get used to it.

As Sunday is a working day for me, this timing could be a bit tricky. The date is fine but can we make it an hour or two later than 1300 UK time?

As Sunday is a working day for me, this timing could be a bit tricky. The date is fine but can we make it an hour or two later than 1300 UK time?


We can make it any day or time that is good for everyone.
