Euro 2012

Fantasy League Pro – The Wrap Up

With today’s deadline looming across all the Fantasy games, your lineups should be close to being finalised – your Fantasy League pro auctions now complete.

I put the final piece in my 15-man squad with the capture of Mario Balotelli on Wednesday evening, he’ll work in a dubious partnership with Robin Van Persie to carry my hopes over the group stages.

Of course, the League Chairman should now have moved their games on and paved the way for sealed bidding to start on transfers. I’ve set my league to allow transfers after every set of Group matches, with a first deadline at 10pm on June 11 – I’m limiting bids to 5 per round with 20 over the tournament as a whole. Your chairman might have done different – that’s certainly one of the interesting elements of the Pro game.

Chairman can set your sealed bids deadline for the first round of transfers via their Chairman’s Office, by clicking on Sealed Bids. Here you can set a deadline for managers to make bids for the remaining free agents. You go back to this screen on the deadline to process the bids – watch out for any bids made after the deadline when you do. By default, managers can make unlimited transfers over the tournament – if you want to restrict that, you can do so, again via the Chairmans Office. This initial screen is also where a Chairman can change the cap on the number of players per country – I’m tweaking mine to 4 after the group stages are complete.

If there are any Chairman struggling to move their game on past the auction phase, due to final bids not being made or teams failing to make bids, then they should contact prosupport@fantasyleague.com asap. Provide details of your division id (available in the url of your league page) and the team id’s effected (available in the url of the teams in question) and they will resolve the issue so you can move you games on in time for today’s kick-off.

Fantasy League Classic

If you missed out on the Fantasy League Pro action, and you’re still looking out for an alternative to your McDonalds lineup, you can still take advantage of the Fantasy League Classic game. Entry to this is £5 with over £10,000 in the prize pot, including £5,000 to the winner.

    Alert!
    Very boring / annoying question, but if you have a minute to think about it, give me your opinnion.

    a) Akinfeev & Andersen + Piszheck + Maniatis
    b) Akinfeev & Given + Perquis + Maniatis
    c) Akinfeev & Isaksson + Perquis + Maniatis
    d) Szczney & Andersen + Berezutski + Maniatis
    e) Given & Chalkias + Berezutski + Perquis
    f) Wasn't that enough?

    Risks / my toughts
    a) doomed if Akinfeev don't play - maybe too risky
    b) well I can survive first gw with given, but wc needed for gw2
    c) looks like I'm alone with Isaksson, everyone goes for Given + same things as a+b
    d) all bets on poland cs
    e) don't think either will keep cs + maniatis would be much better choice for greece

    So it's definetely not A, but D sounds right - right?

    Thanks!

      Actually Jelavic is also a slight doubt as Eduaro and Mandzukic could get the nod.

      Boateng is a pricey gamble imo - and Portugal could easily bag anyway (ronaldo and nani capable of scoring from nothing) - not worth the risk for me.

      why not downgrade Boateng to someone like O'shea and upgrade Given to a 6.5 keeper?

      Perquis got a higher goal rate, so I would rather take him. But Boenisch got lower ownership and is therefore less risky in terms of price changes. It's not really a bid difference between them. None of them got a high ownership rate, and non of them contribute anything particular offensively.

    I do not understand the captain thing.

    Can i only switch captains to someone who is on my bench? Or can I switch it to someone else who is yet to play?

      I think the group is putting everyone off. Great differential though.
