ze germans are coming!

Post by 12345678 »

have to admit some mixed feelings on fanteam recently.

firstly the pursuit games are pretty horrible and to be honest i didn't even realise the rules had changed around captains.

you always had safety net which was just as well in belarussia but it didn't make sense that captaincy didn't get the same treatment. this seemed to have changed without up front notification. personally i kept to keepers as x2 then saw this week more revolving there than anywhere! so was relieved it was there, if i had known i might have gone for more bate outfield players x2, with mixed success. @fanteamreps can you please update important stuff like this on the homepage! it wasn't clear new vice captains x1.5 would alter captaincy treatment.

yep they are great for single games but using pursuit for multi games and whole weekends is extremely poor. i'd rather be able to pick XI players with freedom than be forced into structure with 4 or 7 player games.

i fear the german monster may be needlessly and mindlessly 7 player instead of XI.

seeing stakes drop in belarussian and other games was painful whilst watching decent prizes for people playing games on their computers!

on the plus side my fear was that the computer games were here to stay so relieved to see the bundesliga getting headline treatment, even though i fear 7-player nonsense!

also to be fair to them well done on keeping daily fantasy football going when even draft kings dropped it! kept the mind occupied anyways :lol:

there is still one thing you should do to improve your game, same as it has always been. the impact points are mindless and swing you further toward blocks, with many rules there to try to stop blocks surely there is zero sense in retaining them!

hoping for an XI player fantasy bundesliga but fearing 7x pursuit!

good to see decent quality footy back and hopefully a better stake level. one thing i have found is that games will get close to filling whatever they are but if popular will fill. i don't think the low stake levels were ever going to make belarussia popular, hopefully ze germans will get better treatment!

that is a real relief, i did fear a 7-player game, 20 euro entry too, feels like proper weekend fantasy football again!

shame to see a full south korea game at 3 euros, not really worth the effort..... much better league than the belarussian.

presume belarussian will cling on in the same format.

will definitely play the german game, not sure about belarussia, will likely let s.korea go, i saw draft kings had a not particularly great $10 and will presumably do bundesliga too.

It's a challenging game - I like it. Spent an hour on this already and still haven't got a balanced team within budget.

I'm begging you Ricky - please don't leave out Lewandowski again. You've already had two warnings with the Euro games as to the amount of irreparable damage that is done by omitting him.

I think you may have done well with your usual approach last week as Lewandowski only scored a single goal with no other goal involvement. There were plenty of better captain choices out there.

If you don't like Bundesliga - I have opened a poll for league of preference once La liga and Serie A get back up and running (will be before PL resumes). Hopefully someone at fanteam will see this and utilise the very valuable results from this poll.
