    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    Right ladies and gents, that's everyone confirmed. Divisions are as follows:

    Premiership
    Me
    PS
    Ed
    Simmo
    Syko
    Dmac
    Regal
    Mr Blonde

    Division 1
    Order
    Jon Snow
    Mikk
    Shake
    Shock
    CGS
    DarkestEarth
    Zero

    Sorry Declan, no room at the inn this time.

    Rule Changes

    Please vote Yay or Nay on the following proposed rule changes

    1) Changing Assists to Assists (Fantasy). This will include winning penalties, winning freekicks, scoring off rebounds etc. Hell of a lot more assists to go around, hell of a lot more controversy. You can score em all seperately but I want an all or nothing approach. YAY/NAY

    2) Goalkeepers score 1 points for every 2 saves. Keeps keeper scores down, this should be [retty self explanatory Yay/Nay

    Choice of 3 options here
    3) Add -1 for every 3 goals conceded as a defender. Never sat right to me that a defender could just get 2 for showing up even if his team got battered
    4) Add -1 for every 2 goals conceded as a defender but add 1 to the clean sheet total.
    5) Keep defenders at the same and let me play a shitty Huddersfield defender just so I can get bare minimum 2 points

    My Votes
    1) Yay
    2) Yay
    Option 4

    I'll do the draw by the end of the week. In all likelihood, it'll be by Wednesday.

    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    1. Yes and No - I accept penalties, free kicks (if we must) and OG's but nothing else. Rebounded goals should never equal assists, that's ridiculous. Could also open up lots of debate as you're relying on Fantrax to officiate that.

    2 - No - keepers were fine last year, not like the year before when they dominated. Almost halving their points will make it almost pointless starting keepers again.

    5 - Seems grand to me as is.

    You can keep trying to move the posts lad, makes no difference in the long run #PSwins

    And he scores goals...!

    I agree on the first point. A rebound goal is completely different to the other types of shot, as the player missing the first shot is rewarded for failure. Off the post is fine by me though.

    Disagree on keepers though. They are still overscoring. And for me it's not the saves that is doing it, it's the higher clean sheet point. 4 saves was giving keepers with a clean sheet 10 points a game, that's overpowered. Pushing keepers to 3 points a clean sheet but leaving the saves as is would be perfect in my opinion. Clean sheet (3), four saves (4) and appearance (1) would be a decent total for a shut out.

    And I'm actually on board with the first of the final options. No defender should walk away scot free from letting in three goals plus in a game, especially when keepers get wildly punished for something they sometimes cannot avoid.

    Just my two cents on the matter.

    I think Syko and PS are right, if we could have the other types of assists but not rebounds that would be good.

    I'm indifferent (you guys know better than me). But #3 for the defense part.

    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    - Fuck yes fix the assists, it's driven me mad for 4 years that we're not more like FPL for assists.
    - No, I don't mind the keepers scoring high because it makes it a risk worth taking. If you start tying an anchor down on points Keepers can score, but still keep them at -2 every time they concede I predict you'll see a lot more people picking bench keepers just to take the 0.
    - 5 because I don't think it was really an issue what the defenders were scoring.

    By the way 3 for my final vote.

    Defenders get way too much leeway in this. Extra points for assists and goals which is fine as it isn't their job but defending is and they deserve to be punished for a shit show like Leicester and Hull defenders pulled towards the end of last year.

    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    Right, I'm doing the draft order today so I'm cutting off voting.

    The winning totals (with my votes added) are

    Yes for fantasy assists - I'll add the caveat that if it's clearly not working and turns ridiculous I'll re-evaluate it to take out stuff like rebounds at the Supplemental.
    Yes for a point every two saves.
    Option 3 - A -1 point for every 3 goals conceded.

    Stay tuned for the draft order.

    EDIT: Fuck it, it was taking ages to change anyway, so I have just added Assists for: Penalties, Freekicks, Own Goals and Shots off a Post. Only worry is that it may count the assist twice, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating

    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    Also to confirm, I've tested it and the -1 only counts against defenders while they are on the pitch.

    E.G You have Luke Shaw, team are down 2-0, he gets subbed, united ended up losing 4-0, he doesn't lose the -1

    Re: Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    Righto bitches, let's do the order. I originally had a better idea, but it would have taken 8 days to complete and I'm in Japan all of next week.

    This year, we will be weighing shit.

    My factory has very recently bought a new set of scales that arrived yesterday and I am yet to test it out. I have found 8 items of approximate weight that are either on my desk or around my person, my missus will assign an item to a player, heaviest cunt gets the cream, lowest cunt gets fuck all.

    Here are the items:



    1. Tape Measure
    2. Set of Allen Keys
    3. Crimp Tool
    4. Multimeter
    5. A Copy of Windows XP Professional Edition
    6. Hole Punch
    7. Hose Tail and Connector
    8. Set of 500 Business Cards.

    These numbers will be matched up with the following pairings (made using team name alphabetical order):

    A) PS / CGS
    B) Ed / Zero
    C) Nash / DarkestEarth
    D) Simmo / Jon Snow
    E) Dmac / Shake
    F) Regal / Order
    G) Syko / Shock
    H) Blonde / Mikk

    I am awaiting the text now.

    EDIT: Wow she quick:



    So that's:

    A) PS / CGS - Allen Keys
    B) Ed / Zero - Business Cards
    C) Nash / DarkestEarth - Multimeter
    D) Simmo / Jon Snow - Hole Punch
    E) Dmac / Shake - Hose Tail
    F) Regal / Order - Windows XP
    G) Syko / Shock - Crimp Tool
    H) Blonde / Mikk - Tape Measure

    Let the weighing commence
