    Fantrax General Information and Announcements

    Morning all,

    Now that the Euros is done and dusted, I need to get cracking on this.

    First order of business is to once again congratulate our league winners PS and Dmac, and pour one out for our dead homie Zero who now enters Div 1 in search of redemption.

    It's gunna be trickier this year seeing as we now cross 3 major timezones, so we may have to start drafting earlier than I would normally like for a season start on August 13.

    However, first I have to gauge exactly who's coming back for another tilt this year. Please comment yes or let me know some other way (Facebook/whatsapp/homing pigeon/interdepartmental memo) and I'll stick a yes next to your name.

    I'm also kicking out Marshall for inactivity, so we have one spot in Division 1 going free. However if you steal the spot, don't keep up activity I will fucking break your legs and I mean it, so if you're interested please comment and I'll put it to a vote.

    Premiership
    Nash - Yes
    PS
    Simmo
    Sykotic
    Crocker
    Ed - Yes
    Regal
    Dmac

    Division 1
    Zero
    Jon Snow - Yea
    Order
    Mikk
    Blonde
    Shake
    DE
    [spare]

    Scoring changes this year are as follows:
    Keeper GP down to 1
    Dual Eligibility kicks in after 10 games not 5.

    Also, Order, due to the timezone issues, can I request that you act as the draft intermediary for the Prem and I'll do Division 1. Basically, if people are next up and need to sleep so send a list, Prem goes to you, Div 1 goes to me. Impartial judges and all that.

    As soon as I get a full round of yes's I'll do the order. I'm looking to start the draft at some point around the 25th-1st week. I think the 1st may be a bit late, don't forget I have to input over 250 players into squads as well.

    Also, just FYI, the leagues have updated on the website if you wanna check out the new signings etc.

    Happy days,

    Nash

    I'm in.

    North American Derby Hype

    I think Euro 2016 isn't a good indication of how well I'll fare. If I finish top 2-3 here, I'll accept shedding the underdog banner.

    On this occasion I'll be voting remain.

    wonder if there's enough Interest in a 3rd league for Nash to go crazy over.

    I'm interested. Sent you a message on Facebook since you don't seem to use Twitter anymore and you mentioned it in the OP.

    Three-way North American Derby?

    Kinda also want Big Papa to sign up (in addition) but I doubt he will.

    Nice bro! Classic return of a fantasy sport God.

    I dunno why I suggested Facebook seeing as it's banned in China, I'll take a look when I get home to the security blanket of my VPN.

    Re: Fantrax Sign Ups 2016/7

    I personally think the first is more than enough time, didn't we do it in about five days last year?

    That was when I was on GMT and not 8 hours ahead of England. Granted we don't have Zero this time, but I wanna do both drafts together anyway so it doesn't really matter. I reckon the Wednesday 27th is fine.

    I still think 17 days is way too much, the first draft should be the most important draft but by having it too early you have so many players missing out on the first three weeks of the season.

    Re: Fantrax Sign Ups 2016/7

    3 weeks is 8% of the regular season but yeah I see your point.

    Meh we took 8 days last year and Div 1 took 10, that was pre China. The 1st is a Monday and the first of the month so that seems like a decent time to do it and a nice cut off date, providing everyone is on the ball.

    There's no way we're gonna take almost 2 weeks to do the draft Nash. August 1st is plenty time

    Last year division one was done with people in the UK, USA & Australia in it.

    It would be great if Shock and/or CGS sign up for this.

    No promotion for you.

    You guys should pm Shock/CGS/BP and see if they want to join too. Though I guess that reduces my chances of winning.
