As Flyman is off on his little hollibob soon, he has kindly asked me to set up the new CTC thread for this season, for discussion of price changes and the predictions thereof. So with kickoff in sight, here it is.
For now the opening posts are largely copied from Flyman's work from last season, but I will regularly update any changes to key info regarding the CTC site and/or calculation methods throughout the season.THE FISO GUIDE TO FPL PLAYER PRICE CHANGES
This season's Price Change Site
, aka "CrackTheCode"
, can be found HERE
*Update 19 Aug: CTC is now live! We are indebted to forum member diamondplus
for his creation of this site, to enable us to use this information. The mechanics / formulae behind the price changes are described in the next post, as accurately as we currently know them.PLEASE NOTE:!
The CTC site is (currently) updated every day at 09:00
FPL.com price changes occur between 00:30
Price drops for players with less than 1% ownership (see FPL site) can not
be deduced and are not included.!
The rise and the fall thresholds will vary over the season. Any changes to this algorithm will be reflected on diamondplus's site at his earliest opportunity. For this reason users must accept the possibility of inaccuracies on the site.!
There is a margin of error of 1% implicit in all 'Price Drops: Selected By' statistics due to the limited details FPL.com give managers. This small margin of error can sometimes result in prices not falling when predicted by the site.IMPORTANT!
1) FPL.com's algorithms are secret and may take some time to determine. Please bear with the FISO Boffins during the refining process.
2) This information is used at your own risk.
