Everyone that I have money from should have the codes, shout if not. Please if you are joining then do this tomorrow and not Saturday morning as you might not make the cut given I also have a 100 man LMS to organise too
LMS is not about what score you get, it's about what score you get relative to others.
So I think rather than picking an arbitary figure, it would be better picking something relative to say, the average score.
The average score - 20% for instance.
So if the average score is 40pts, the cutoff point would be 40 - 20% = 32pts.

But happy to go with whatever obviously.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

What about doing the first few as losing 1 a month, August, September, October then should be fine from there?

Just adding more options to confuse everyone

My solution to this would be to have a break in the middle of the season. In the example you give of 24 entrants I would do 11 weeks at the start, then go on a break, then play down to a winner last 12 gws of the season.

With this method the competition would be as originally intended and we would get the start of the season (When theres a lot of different teams about) as well as the deciders happening at the end of the season (when the crucially important and exciting double gameweeks come about).

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Prob won't be able to post payouts etc until tonight. Let's just say for now that the bottom scorer will be eliminated from lms. If people are tied for last then they all get busted, merciless. Rest of info later

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Payouts here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...x64/edit#gid=0

NOTE: I am only in the 150 and 400 to admin them, I am not eligible for the prizes.

If there is mass consensus to change the 150 or 400 payouts then I will make changes since I am not in them.

Looks like the league forums don't exist anymore so can't post them there. LMS is also there, plan is as follows:

1 out week 1-17
1 out each week 26-37
Leaving 3 for the final week and 2 paid. No chops allowed in that.

I believe the league forums are on their way. Someone I play with emailed FPL and they said they were.

Would have transferred off Okazaki and was between Negredo and Wilson. Prob would have gone Negredo because of matchup and of course he scores. Rigged, imo.

I'd protest but I'd likely go out in the next few weeks anyways so whatevs. Still kinda bs.

What would your protest be against? The transfer deadline which is written on the teampage?

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

The deadline isn't the start of the match? Weird, but ok then.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

The deadline is written on your "my team" page I think, on phone so cant check now. But its usually 1 hour before the first game. So early transfer deadline on friday.

It has been like this for as far as I can remember.

It is good because all fixtures are treated equally and you don't end up getting lineups for the early KO's.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Yeah it would be a ****show if everyone had to wait until 58mins before the first KO to make their transfers. Current system is fine.

In other news, I left 27pts on the bench in week 1. Cool.

That makes sense I guess. Here's to Hazard scoring 4 goals and saving me so I can mess something else up next week.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Lamela and Capoue in my team virtually all summer and swapped them to Deulofeu and Phillips on deadline day. Awesome. Pretty sure I do this every year!
