World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT




Official thread to track the draft process and the scores through out the tournament.

The game is simple, pick players to score goals/assists over the course of the World Cup 2018 football tournament while not getting themselves yellow/red cards.

SCORING SYSTEM

Open play goals (including direct freekicks): 5 points
Assists (as per official website): 3 points
Penalty goals (not including shootouts): 2 points
Yellow cards: -1 point
Red Cards: -5 points
Scoring in a shootout: 3 points
Missing in a shootout: -5 point

Participants:
vruuuuk
Falconhoof
MindFckr
Yippee ki-yay
Jabonator
TallPaul
LCF_USA
Cina


Draft is run in an ABBABABA format.

Additional rules (I might add to this as we go to avoid confusion):

1) In the event of a points draw between entries, the tiebreaker is the team that scored the most 5 point goals. If that is also level, the individual player within a team who scored the most goals would be champion.

2) The most indiscipline a player can have per game is 5 points. So whether you get sent off through a straight red, a yellow than a red, or two yellows (which means a red) you can only lose 5 points that way

3) If you pick a player that doesn't make the squad/is injured and withdraws before his teams first game, they can be replaced from a list of undrafted players that I will draw up after the draft.


Buy-In: £25
Winner: 6 units
Runner-Up: 2 units

Escrow is mic_check12. Please PM him or me for the paypal info.

We will start in 1-2 days or as soon as everyone has paid.
Draft will be run through the thread, no time limits for now because we are still 8 days away from the opening game.

GL all.

Shipped.

Haven't really taken any interest in the World Cup yet. I suppose I'd better do a bit of research now, like look at the groups and squads and stuff.

I actually would have passed anyway. No time for a real draft.

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Excel Sheet

Don't mind the formating on the second page. I had it prepared for 8 people and then I ****ed up when adding 2 more, but everything is working as planned.

I will update it constantly as games progress. I have a lot of time in my hands even when at the office so it's ok.
If anyone wants editting privileges just let me know.

Yippie, Cina, TP, Andre and Falcon have paid - 5 left.

I suppose that by tomorrow everything will be sorted so I want to say:
Start time: 08/06/2018 by 2.00 PM GMT+1 aka British Summer Time.

Sounds good?

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

6th I'll take that. Didn't want the 1 spot as I'd have to take undrafted despite not wanting undrafted

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

I have no idea what I'm doing.

So it's 8 rounds, with no limitations of any sorts on the picks?
