FFS Head to Head leagues 2019-2020 – Update Part 2

Further to my article on the 15th August, please see a further update on the FFS Head to Head Leagues below.

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to release the leagues and fixtures by GW 2 as early we had hoped, but as I’m sure you can appreciate there have been a couple of teething problems. With just under 6000 entries there is a lot of data to process and condense to show correctly on the site!

There is one important change since the last update and that is the naming of the leagues: we have swapped the wording of Divisions and Leagues around, so the top league is called League 1 rather than Division 1 and the next tier down is now called League 2 Division 1 and Division 2 rather than Division 2 League 1 and 2.

So the structure is now as follows;

League 1 – 1 Division

League 2 – 2 Divisions

League 3 – 4 Divisions

League 4 – 8 Divisions

League 5 – 16 Divisions

League 6 – 32 Divisions

League 7 – 64 Divisions

League 8 – 173 Divisions

Some of the issues currently being worked on are as follows:

1. Geoff is busy working to get the landing page sorted so that everyone can view the data.

2. Soon each team will have a link to their gameweek history.

3. At present all 38 fixtures for all 300 leagues are shown in one document but behind the scenes we are working on getting these filtered, so they show per league.

4. At some point in the season we will be looking to obtain each teams FFS username. This information isn’t needed to show the leagues or fixtures but is something that will be needed to a) help identify the team for the FFS community and b) makes it a lot easier for me to administer the promotion and relegation for next season.

As advised all the leagues and fixtures have been created and are updated to reflect the GW1 scores. If any of you wish to know your league and GW1 result I’m happy to advise but you’ll need to direct message me on Twitter – @sparkymir.

For now, we really appreciate your positive feedback and patience. We would have ideally got everything out on site before the GW2 deadline, however we are committed to having everything showing correctly before we release it.

Hopefully we’ll be able to reveal more this afternoon.

* If I’m unable to make significant visual improvements I’ll still release the URLs so people can check in. The bulk of the work is done and we know it’ll work, now we need to make it easy for managers to use and understand! – Geoff

      Great work all of you!
      When do you need us to start linking our FFS names with our teams - or will there be a call for that later?

        Yeah, that's not necessary right now. Once we get the other things worked out we can go for that

    Thanks for the update!

    Are we safe to remove ourselves from the ML we needed to join to enter this now?

      There are two answers to this really but yes, the first is that you can leave it.

      The second is that the mini-league will stay open as that's how managers will sign up for next year. The mini-league will be renewed next year (with everyone in it auto-signed up again) and anyone who has left it will need to join again, for GW1, to get their spot back.

      This will be to avoid having a bunch of managers who are uninterested, not following the league, or unaware they're still in it from taking up spots.

      So everyone can leave the league but just a reminder that for next season you'll need to remember to sign up again to keep your league position.

        Christ, I really empathise. I only had 7 H2H leagues, tacked on to the main league, and it nearly did my head in! But this ... 🙂

      The fact that Matt has still been in contact about it whilst sitting on a beach says it all!

      Cheers! Wish I could have changed the ranks so I was in the top League but unfortunately I'm in League 2!

        If you are placed in League 2, I wonder where will I be ? Somewhere down in League 7-8? 😀

                Hey Mir, in the previous update you mentioned you were in League 3, Division 1 with a HOF rank of 547. Does that mean only about 70 odd of those ranked above you have entered these leagues?

                1. Jarvish
                  • 4 Years
                  26 days, 2 hours ago

                  Sorry to interject, but my maths says there must be between 60 and 139 ahead of him, as he must be ranked between 61st and 140th of the entrants to be in League 3.

                  1. Fitzy.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    26 days, 1 hour ago

                    Well, he’s in Division 1 of League 3, so that leaves the 60 in Leagues 1 and 2, as well as possibly some of the others in his league that are ranked higher in the HOF? Or are the divisions within each league random and not rank based?

                    1. Fitzy.
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 7 Years
                      26 days, 1 hour ago

                      *some of the others in his division

                    2. Jarvish
                      • 4 Years
                      26 days, 1 hour ago

                      The divisions within the leagues are of equal strength I believe, so I think the strength of League 3 Division 1 is the same as League 3 Division 4.

                      1. Fitzy.
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 7 Years
                        26 days, 1 hour ago

                        Yeah, I understand that for relegation & promotion the divisions within a league are equally weighted, but thought that HOF rank would be used for the initial placements.

                      2. Jarvish
                        • 4 Years
                        26 days, 1 hour ago

                        They probably did something like rank 61 goes in L3 D1, rank 62 goes in L3 D2, rank 63 goes in L3 D3, rank 64 goes in L3 D4, rank 65 goes in L3 D1, rank 66 goes in L3 D2, etc etc, though with 6000 people to sort out they may have had to do it a simpler way!

                        26 days, 1 hour ago

                        Correct Jarvish, this is exactly how we did it.

        If you're already at the top then you can't improve. being in league 1 is for losers with no ambition.

        Unless I'm in league 1 then of course it's the division to be in.

      Wildcards are tempting but my team is just too good to ditch:
      Heaton
      Lundstram - Holebas - VVD
      Cantwell - salah - Sterling - Trossard
      Pukki - Wilson - vardy
      So many of them at home as well

        If you team is too good just don't think about wc. There will be fire down the line. International breaks will hit hard.

                Yes sorry that I.D is not showing. You had to enter an entry league prior to GW1 deadline. We used this league to collect the data needed. Hope to see you in it next year.

      This is fantastic work.
      I'm so annoyed with myself on missing out on entering.

      I suppose if you choose to run it next year I would start in the bottom league... is that how it works?

        Yes anyone that joins next year will join in the bottom league regardless of rank. Hope to see you nexy season.

        If you have all the data on one spreadsheet and it can be transferred to MS Excel, it should be possible to write a macro that solves the filtering issue (3rd point) and creates database needed for every id. After that a simply query with team id would show future opponents.

        I know this isn't perfect fix, but should give everyone the main info for time being?
