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.

    Hi,
    How about my team (2-5-3)?
    Sczesny (Given)
    Zhirkov - Strinic (Wass, M. Olsson, O'Dea)
    Shirokov - Ozil - Iniesta - Affelay - Ribéry
    Ibrahimovic - Lewandowsky (C) - Van Persie

    Subs ok? Any change necessary?

      O'Dea won't start, will prob not even play 1 minute in the competition. Good side but make sure you put your players playing 1st in before and players you have as subs.

      Ribéry, Ozil! Pick Affelay instead of Sneijder who is expensive, you could get Van Persie then too!

    I don't really get the Euro fantasy rules. So I'm allowed to substitute players during game round and change captain, loosing only given points of the player or captain bonuses?

      yea that correct, but you must chose manager substitution when the 1st round of matches is over

      2 games per matchday so changes can only be made before matchday 1 and in between matchdays not between each game.

      After both games today you can then decide to sub new players in for matchday 2 but yeah you will lose for example the 3 points for benching Kadlec and if you (c) Lewandowski and he scored 8 points you would lose half of his points if you switched the armband but kept him in your team or all his points if you bring an other player in completely.

      to be honest i get rid of him and get Pletikosa in my team
