Heart Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Cross post in MTTC and Fantasy sports.

Pending someone else stepping up and agreeing to run it and do escrow on Stars I will run the leagues again, last year's thread is here:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/15...-16-a-1546162/

As per last year there is an admin fee of 2.5% I ran it for free for 2 years but am not prepared to give up the many hours without an admin fee. If someone reputable wants to run it for free than be my guest...

If you haven't played before, the basic premise is that you select a squad of Premiership players and get points for their performance. I'll be running the leagues at http://fantasy.premierleague.com/. The rules can be found here: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/rules/

This year I will not hold the money on Stars. As my bank accounts and Paypal are in Pounds Sterling so will the buy ins be. Post Brexit it’s a great time for you foreigners to be buying our worthless currency!

For smaller buy ins in other currencies it doesn’t matter if you use Paypal or Transfer Wise since the rates are very similar. (expect it to cost about $3) If you are entering the high roller leagues then it should be much cheaper to send with transferwise if your PP or bank isn’t in Sterling.

I'm going to run the following leagues – buy ins are approx the same as last year, just converted to Sterling:

£35 classic
£150 classic
£400 classic


£75 head to head
£35 head to head


£20 last man standing – Despite bubbling this last season I will run it again! In the LMS the lowest scoring player(s) for that week (and that week only) are eliminated. If we had 40 players then it would be 1 out each week and 3 left in for the final (with 2 paid) If there are more then 2 go out for x number of weeks at the start. If less then none go out until week x - I will post a weekly update in the thread showing who is knocked out.

This is a forum league for forum members. If you have a 2016 reg date or very few posts then post to ask if you can join. There were lots of begging requests to join from people with 1 post last year, don't bother this time, I won't answer them. The main reason we don’t let randos in is to stop people multi accounting the leagues. In contrast if you have lots of posts then you don’t need to ask to join, you are welcome!

If you want to play one of the leagues then PM me for Paypal address or bank details. They are the same as last time so you can go ahead and send if you know them already. Deadline to enter is Friday August 12th (the earlier you do it the easier it is for me!). If you leave it until the last minute you will most likely get shut out since I have to receive the payment and get you the league code.

Note that if your team does not show up as waiting to join by the time the first games kick off then you will be refunded and deleted from the league once you join. This is to stop someone regging 10 teams week 1 and only joining the league with the highest scoring one. There is a lot of money involved and this rule will be strictly enforced, once you are deleted the site doesn't let you rejoin the league so don't bother complaining.

I held $20k+ for this league the last 2 years and paid out promptly, have also escrowed MSNL March Madness and 12x/LMS many times before and have a flawless rep so no worries on the money going anywhere.

After you have sent please post the following in the thread:
1) What leagues you are joining
2) Your team name on the FPL site. If you do not do this then you won’t get a PM if you win a MOTM prize since I won’t know who you are!

Payouts

Here are the payouts from last year
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...6LU/edit#gid=0

This year will be similar, I will post all prizes in the thread after the 1st deadline has passed.

If you have any questions then go ahead and ask, hope to see as many if not more in again this time round!

Will probably be in the small stakes. Played fantasy football for about 10 years. And maybe this time I'll still be in it and keep playing after September. Here's to hoping.

this is already a popular belief amongst my IRL friends. Don't worry, I won't spoil it by backing them.

Could you do stars?

Id love a sidebet, usually out of it by week 3 or 4, this way I'll have some action at least 7-8 weeks in :P

Save your hustle for someone else lol, I'd be in even if you won it the last 3 seasons.

Stars is my least favourite with the new rules, fees and possible confiscating of money! Do you have any web wallets or if possible a bank transfer end of season after some vouches.

Not many signed up so far. Assume we get less runners due to me not taking stars though. Still 2 weeks to go also
