    2018 World Cup Fantasy Football DRAFT - Discussion and Table

    Time is of the essence so I'm banging everything in 1 post for time being on rules etc

    Will be same process etc as the one we just finished

    RULES
    1 – 11 players to be picked by auction - 150m fake “budget”. If you overspend then the player you have "won" by overspending will be void and the next highest bidder will have him. There is no benefit from NOT spending your full budget
    2 - Players ONLY from this list - https://www.dreamteamfc.com/g/#tournament/stats-centre
    3 – Allowed formations are 343, 442 and 433 ONLY
    4 – Only 1 player from a Nation allowed in your team. e.g you can only have 1 Spain player. This should mean we can fill teams without breaking the site "budget" and also make it a bit harder/interesting
    5 - There will be a transfer window(s) during the tournament - TBC when, I need to look into this!




    POINT SCORING
    Players will earn point for your team the following ways:

    All players
    Player Rating of 7 or more: +3 points
    Star Man: +5 points
    Each Goal Scored (excluding own goals): +5 points
    Hat trick (3 or more goals): +5 points
    Assist: +2 points
    Yellow Card: -1 point
    Red Card: -3 points
    Penalty Takers
- Penalty Save or Miss (as defined below): -3 points

    Goalkeepers
    Penalty Save or Miss (as defined above): +3 points

    Clean Sheet (no goals conceded): +5 points
    2 Goals Conceded: -1 point
    Each Goal Conceded Over two goals: -1 point



    Auction Format
    EVERY DAY (sorry for those who do not access the site at the weekend but we are up against time) there will be an auction of approx "x" players. I WILL UPDATE THIS ("x" from each nation). It will run similar to DTL auction

    1 - I will put up a list of players (depending on numbers but at least 20 players - I WILL UPDATE THIS) by randomiser early morning on Saturday 9th June. All managers can submit their bid to me (by Private Message) by 10am the next morning.
    2 - I will put up the results the next morning and then a fresh batch of players (again by randomiser) will be listed. This will ALSO include those not chosen in 1st auction (like DTL Auctions)
    3 - You must NOT bid more than your available budget which I will calculate and put in the Auction post (again, like DTL)
    4 - You can only bid up to 5 players each day. If you "win" more positions than you need then only your highest bids will count. e.g you need 2 more defenders, you bid on 4 defenders. You win 3 auctions. The lowest winning "bid" will be discarded and whoever was the next highest bidder will win him (if applicable).
    5 - Although you are only allowed 1 player per Nation in your Team XI, you can bid on as many (for example) Germany players as you want. If you are successful in more than 1 then your highest bidded player will be yours whilst any other players from Germany you "won" (with lower bids) will be sold to the next person in line
    6 - 1m MINIMUM increments on bids. You CAN bid 0 if you want but after that it's 1m as a minimum from there



    Hints & Tips (AKA where I teach you to "suck eggs")

    I would suggest not bidding on a player in the following circumstances………..
    1 - Your bid puts you over budget – bad gentlemanly conduct and your winning "bid" will be voided
    2 – You already have 1 players from that nation – Feel free to create your own "office" to keep tabs on it but if you buy 1 Brazil player then you really need to remember not to bid on others going forward! (unless you do not own a player from a nation and bidding on multiple club players in 1 auction). This will get tricky for you the later this goes where you will be very restricted which clubs you can bid on!
    3 – Your bid for a player may mean you have an invalid formation (check the players position from the website and ensure it can fit into a valid formation) - 343, 442 or 433. If it doesn't fit, he'll get thrown back in the pot and you'll get your cash refunded
    4 - The player is an auction "filler". Given that I am doing the auctions by randomiser, it's going to bring up a bit of "guff" as well (e.g 2nd 'keepers at a nation, players that are nowhere near 1st teams etc). I wouldn't bother bidding on these because they can be free or cheap as you may as well wait until later on when prices will be lower and you can pick up cheap bargain for some quite good players.



    I would suggest bidding on a player who………..
    1 – May have a decent chance of coming through group stage
    2 – Is a “First team” player – i.e – maybe better off picking a first team player for regular points rather than a supersub for a "big" nation that may not play
    3 – Nation Captains? – Likely to play so always worth thinking of buying them
    4 - In my experience, a lot of managers "blow thier budget" early doors with excitement etc and further down the line some top players go for less money - is it worth hanging around and snapping up some cracking players even though you may miss out on any "big guns" early on in the process?

    FYI - there are best part of 800 players

    I was looking to cull some but no idea who people will/not go far - so I may post up a bigger list every day but a lot could be "guff" players and I will also make it easier for you to read (as shown by example below) where they are "sorted" by Nation and also a "value" on there (this is from Telegraph newspaper site) just to show if "rated/popular" so can maybe help you if you are not that au fais with other countries players

    Looking at the "value" scale (just to give you context) the worst players are 1.8 and the best player is a 7

    As well as putting a screenshot of the list in each auction, i will make it more user friendly and put a sendspace link to the excel sheet as well so easier for you to navigate your way around a bigger list etc when deciding who you want to go for

    Yeah. I'll jump in.

    800 players means there are 60ish players that are not even going!

    1st Auction will go up soon with a deadline of Saturday morning 10.30am (UK time)

    If everyone comes back to me by PM before then we can crack on with auction 2

    Prob 50 players per auction

    I'll allow late entrants tomorrow as I have a feeling Erk would like to join (I have pm'd everyone involved in this seasons FFL Draft who hadn't joined as of yet)
