    If he's interested then it's up to him but I'm sure the next person that signs up to the actual site gets the last spot.

    Re: WC Fantrax Division 2 Sign Ups & Discussion Thread

    Right lads, competing in the all singing, all dancing, WC Fantrax Division 2 this year we haveeee:

    Disco Pants - Mikk
    Marshall's Rangers - Marshall
    mrblonde - mrblonde
    Night's Watch - Jon Snow
    Order's Allstars - Order
    Swedgeheads - Shake
    Team DarkestEarth - DarkestEarth
    Wooden Warriors - Dmac

    For those of you who don't know how this thing works, let me spell out the basics for ya. A lot of this is copied from the post I made a few years ago:

    The Draft

    We start with a draft - meaning only one of each player is available for the whole year. It's a basic serpentine system where picks will be decided using a random number generator. It works as follows for a mock draft of, say, me Mikk and Order. For the purpose of demonstration Order is assigned 1st pick randomly, Mikk is assigned 2nd pick and I am (of course) last.

    Order - Wayne Rooney
    Mikk - Jozy Altidore
    Nash - Sergio Aguero , Eden Hazard
    Mikk - Adam Johnson
    Order - Bastian Schweinsteiger

    and so on and so on.

    There are 3 drafts a year, one starting next Monday (I'll do your order as soon as I can), one at the end of the Summer Transfer Window, one at the end of the January Window. This is because all the players signed in these transfer windows enter the player pool freely, and then it becomes a cat and mouse game of who got what free agent first rather than a game of skill.

    Important: Once the draft opens next Monday, and players NEW TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE will be ineligible for draft and will go in the player pool for the second draft. This basically means players from relegated teams (Charlie Austin, Nikica Jelavic) or foreign imports. If you break this rule, you'll be auto moved to the bottom of the draft and your player removed.

    Scoring

    Once the draft has been completed and the whole team has been picked, you face one specific opponent a weeke.g my fixtures would read:

    Nash vs Mikk Week 1
    Nash vs Order Week 2

    You go directly head to head and the person with the most points that week gets a Win.
    The points distribution is as follows:

    Goalkeepers
    Game Played - 1
    Clean Sheets - 3
    Goals Against - -1
    Penalty Saves - 2
    Saves - 1

    Defenders
    Assists - 4
    Clean Sheets - 3
    Goals - 6
    Game Played - 2

    Midfielders
    Assists - 3
    Clean Sheets - 1
    Goals - 5
    Game Played - 2

    Forwards
    Assists - 3
    Goals - 4
    Game Played - 2

    All Players
    Yellow Cards - -1
    Red Cards - -5
    Own Goals - -3

    Top 4 teams with the Most wins goes to the playoffs, and the chance to win the title and promotion to the Prem! I'm going to figure out how we're going to do it at a later date, but it's currently 1 up, 1 down with a 2nd place vs 7th place playoff.


    There's a lot of strategy in drafting and organizing a team per week, and it really flexs your fantasy brains. It requires dedication, otherwise it all goes to shit, but you guys are good skin so we'll see how it goes.

    Transfers and Rosters

    - There is such a thing as an Injured Reserve spot, which can be used if one of your players gets injured and you don't want to necessarily drop him for anyone to pick up. You can keep him, but he won't count towards your Squad Of 16, meaning you can add whoever you want.

    You can add up to 2 players a week from the Free Agent pool of players not currently assigned to rosters. Should you drop a player, say Nemanja Matic, he will go on something called 'The Waiver Wire', which means that multiple teams can bid for that player services and he will be assigned to the team who last picked up a player the longest time ago. It's complicated, but it becomes so simple to understand after a few tries. It's very intuitive.

    You must play a keeper, at least 3 defenders, at least 3 midfielders and at least 1 striker every week. No 2-2-8 formations lads.

    Trading will occur throughout the season, and have a deadline around March time. It's awesome negotiating trades, and is probably my favourite thing about the game. The more the better!

    Tips

    - Don't get caught up in hipster picks and fancy free agent pick ups. 30-40 points regularly will usually be enough to get you a result week in week out.

    - Don't be the guy that A) holds the draft up B) complains about people holding the draft up or C) complaining about bullshit scoring

    - Download the app. It's clunky and crappy and barely even works. While you're at it, remember to change a players status to 'Reserve' if you add him from 'Free Agency', if you add him under the 'Active' setting it'll think you have too many players starting and block the move. You may think I'm talking gibberish but I guarantee 50% of you will ask me about this at some point.

    - Trading can be seen as risky, but it's worth it usually. Freshening teams up have seen many people hit a huge run of form, but have also seen people lose their playoff spot.

    - Shit talking is encouraged, as are funny pun Team names and rinsing people's shitty draft picks

    - I'll be blocking out the drafts for the 2 divisions so that people don't just copy the next pick from each draft. I'll open the threads up to everyone after the drafts are complete. Any questions, I'm at the end of a PM.

    - If you have any questions, ask anyone in the Prem or just shoot me a PM and I'll answer quickly. I may even give advice if you fuckers need a second opinion, although I've been robbed in this thing for years.

    So that's it, Any questions?

    Re: WC Fantrax Division 2 Sign Ups & Discussion Thread

    When you say players new to the prem - i assume that means we cant draft any new transfers then and just players from last season who havent moved out of the PL at all?

    Edit: nvm just re read, no foreign imports got it.

    I get the rest though. Easy to understand.

    Jon Snow knows the score.

    @ Shake, just to clarify - you can draft anyone who is signed to a PL side as of the date the draft begins (eg Memphis Depay is possible to draft) but can't draft anyone who signs after draft has begun basically. They'll enter a Supplementary Draft when the transfer window closes at end of summer.

    And he scores goals...!

    Just to let you know guys that being first in this isn't always the best as you have a long way until your second pick.
