HOW DO I PLAY REALFEVR’s FANTASY GAME?
In RealFevr’s World Cup Fantasy game you have a budget of £100m to build a squad with two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three attackers. In the group stage and the round-of-16, you can have a maximum of three players from the same national team. In the quarter-finals the maximum rises to four, in the semi-finals it’s six and in the last Gameweek (the final plus the third and fourth place match) you can have up to 12 players from the same national team.
After completing your squad of 15, you can prepare your starting XI for the first Gameweek. You can use seven different tactics: 3–4–3, 3–5–2, 4–3–3, 4–4–2, 4–5–1, 5–4–1, 5–3–2. To change your tactical formation you can simply substitute someone from your starting XI with a player from the bench. If you’re in 4–4–2 and change a midfielder with an attacker, the team changes automatically to a 4–3–3. If you use manual substitutions (more on this below), you can change your tactics during the Gameweek.
For captain and vice-captain you should pick the players that you believe will have the higher scores of the Gameweek. Your captain’s score will be doubled, so the greater the outcome of his performance, the more you’ll benefit. If your captain doesn’t play in the Gameweek, the vice-captain will have his points double; otherwise, the vice-captain has no benefit. If you use manual substitutions, you can change your captain during the Gameweek. In this case, the best strategy is to give the armband to the player who plays first and keep changing it for every game, until you have a captain with a good score. This means that every player — not just the stars — is a potential captain when you use manual substitutions.
By default, your team will have the automatic substitutions turned on. With this option, if a player in your starting XI doesn’t play, he will be replaced by someone from the bench who has played. As mentioned before, if your captain doesn’t play, the vice-captain will have double points. The order in which the bench players will replace the ones that haven’t played is the order in which you organized your bench. This automatic changes will only take place at the end of the Gameweek.
In the manual substitutions mode, you’re in charge of everything. To activate this mode, you just have to make a substitution or change the captain. With manual mode on, you can change your captain in every game — but beware, once you change it, you can’t go back. You can give the armband only to players who are yet to play. You will also have the advantage of being able to take off the pitch someone who has already played. If you have someone with a disappointing score, you can replace him with someone from the bench. The substitute must be someone who hasn’t played yet. When using the manual substitutions, the best strategy is to leave on the bench the players whose matches will take place in the later days of the Gameweek. You’ll give a chance to the ones who play first and replace them when they disappoint you. Beware: if a player is sent off with a red card, you won’t be able to replace him, nor can you remove the armband if he was your captain.
For each new Gameweek, you can transfer players to and from your squad. For Gameweeks two and three, the group stage, you can make two transfers. For Gameweek four, the round-of-16, you have sixteen free transfers. In the remaining Gameweeks, you have eight transfers. If you don’t use all your available transfers, you can have 2 more in the next Gameweek. Every transfer you make beyond the free limit will result in a 4 points penalty on your score.
You have access to a WildCard that you can use in whichever Gameweek you choose. When active, the WildCard allows you to make unlimited transfers for the next Gameweek. You can change all the squad as many times as you want until the market closes (1 hour before the first match of the Gameweek). When the market for a Gameweek closes, you can start making transfers for the next one. (however, this is a bad idea: you should wait for to make transfers, because of late injuries and other problems that arrive).
HOW DOES POINTS-SCORING WORK?
Points-scoring is largely similar to what we are used to on Fantasy Premier League.
The only difference for all players is that are a minus one deducted for conceding penalties.
Meanwhile, goalkeepers earn extra points for every save, instead of three. Defenders, midfielders and forwards win a point for every four tackles made, every five balls recovered and for every two shots on target.
WHO ARE SOME OF THE BEST PLAYERS TO SIGN?
In the goalkeeping department, Jordan Pickford (£5.5m) is a key-player in England’s attempt to erase their latest World Cup performances. Getting off the blocks with a double-header against Tunisia and Panama is a divine combo, which should not be ignored.
Group G is also the best place to look for quality defenders. The tactical change promoted by Roberto Martínez in Belgium, now playing a 3–4–2–1, made Thomas Meunier (£6.0m) one of the best heavier options for your back-line. This Belgian tank covers the entire right flank and collected five goals and eight assists on the Belgians way to Russia, impressive numbers for a defender. He also banked five clean sheets (of eight possible) and 49 recovered balls. Playing against the likes of Tunisia and Panama from the get-go may prove to be a gift to the defender with more big chances created during the qualifiers, on a par with Germany’s Joshua Kimmich.
The most expensive player in the game is forward Lionel Messi (£12.5m) although Fantasy managers could look to the supporting cast of Angel Di María (£9.5m), Sergio Aguero (£10.0m) and Gonzalo Higuain (£9.0m) for help. Defending European champions Portugal will be lead by Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.0m) who bears the hope of a country trying to win its first ever World Cup. But Ronaldo is not alone. The Real Madrid attacker has a lot of young talented company in the national team in the likes of Bernardo Silva (£8.0), Gelson Martins (£6.5) or Gonçalo Guedes (£7.0) and the one with whom Ronaldo established a fruitful partnership in attack, AC Milan striker André Silva (£7.5).
But don’t forget about Brazil. Gabriel Jesus was their top goal-scorer with 7 goals, and Neymar was king of assists, with 8 goals created. Both of those attackers will have great Fantasy value in Russia.
