Great to see. Just when I was about to have a rest from my spreadsheet :D

11 player game and safety net certainly dumbs it down :(

Fanteam Promo:

We are happy to inform you that we today have opened our season-style tournament for the group stage of Champions League 2021, and with a huge guarantee! In the group stage there are 6 gameweeks, and you will basically have to keep your team from one gameweek to the next. However, it is far from a freeze game, as you are allowed 2 free transfers per gameweek. We kept it simple by having no player price changes, and no wildcards. Manage your team as best you can, and maybe in the end it’s you who will compete for the first prize of €50,000! It starts on September 14th.

No late registration!
Better to get this out in the open right away! You cannot relax and plan to enter this competition at some point after it has started. It will not be possible in this tournament, because there are only 6 gameweeks in total!

No subs!
This time, we skipped the subs. You only have to buy 11 players, and that’s it. It will be quick to pick a team! If one of your players does not start his game, he will be replaced temporarily for that gameweek by safety net. (Your player will return to your team in the next gameweek). As you may know, safety net looks for a reasonable replacement, from the same position, and similar price. You can find out more about it on the support pages:

Safety Net

Buy-in: 20€
This is the buy-in, but if you want to get in cheaper to compete for the first prize of €50,000, here is your chance:

€35,000 GTD satellite week!
We have set up some really big satellites for the Champions League game this week. Based on World Cup qualification matches, there are plenty of options. You can choose between playing normal satellite, or One Bullet, where players only can enter one team!

WEDNESDAY: 6 matches. €2 buy-in. 500 seats (that’s €10,000) guaranteed!

WEDNESDAY: 6 matches. €4 buy-in. ONE BULLET! 125 seats (€2500) guaranteed!

THURSDAY: 6 matches. 1€ buy-in. 125 seats (€2500) guaranteed!

THURSDAY: 6 matches. 4€ buy-in. 375 seats (€7500) guaranteed!

There will also be many satellites on the weekend, plus don’t forget, we are covering the World Cup qualification matches of South America too!

Just the 5 for me - the game is almost full so no overlay and a nice little earner for FanTeam.

Great news for the future of FanTeam imo.

Same here Si👍 Not keen on the safety net as it offers that insurance that I don’t want (and I don’t want other players to have). I know it’s same for all but I want it harder for the masses not easier. Loving this CL comp though and spent all day confirming my teams🤗

Was about to make the same observation. Really great news for them to be making a rake for the first time, as strange as that sounds.

Even better to see that The Closer has banged some teams in. Settle down with the 🍿 shortly to see if he’s captained Ramsey 😀

no safety nets puts off those with few entries as it would deter them from entering other similar comps if their player didn't start, if you have a 50/50 like Alonso/Chilwell and you picked Alonso but Chilwell started, feels like a waste of money, its a good idea imo, though not for the mass multi's, but most arent I think.

5-2-3 did seem to be the best option although did go 4-3-3 in my other team (of 2). Last min change from 5-2-3. Nice to have a Champions league comp which gives you a chance of winning some money. Shame all the rest have disappeared.

Ronaldo captains turned out to be duds - a couple of the other premium strikers could easily end up getting three attacking returns in this round of fixtures.

Well that was a crappy start😩🙂. 2 reds cost big points😏. As block said the Ronaldo captain will surely be well beaten by Lukaku or Messi or mbappe etc

in betting parlance there is an expression called 'I looked at that', when a winner comes in and you kick yourself after for not backing it

I know it's aftertiming but Haller :(

Rubbish start from me in this. Best team is in 2041st with 68.7 points, a massive 40 behind the leader already. Messi and Mbappe were massive let downs considering they were my captains in so many of my teams and I still don’t think Torres goal should’ve been disallowed. Had no Hallers either. I was fairly optimistic during FC Sheriff vs Shaktar as I had a decent enough Tuesday and A Traore my 6.5 cheap enabler midfielder got me 9.3 points in a few of my teams. I still feel like my teams are set up well so I’m not throwing in the towel yet but obviously with such a short 6 Game week competition I can’t afford anymore average weeks.

What’s everyone’s best on? Did anyone pick Haller?

best team in 1813th place on 69.3pts,

38.4pts behind top.

En Nesyri really let me down.

Natombi is dominating the leaderboard with his 80 teams, his top 2 teams are identical.

still 80 matches left to go so a lot to play for.

Best team has 80.9 Pts and is just inside the top 300. That team captained Lukaku + had everyone contribute a return of some kind bar Kimmich. Wolfsburg/Chelsea defence + Dias and Cancelo att returns. Gravenbach safety net for Klassen and goals from Haaland and Ronaldo.

Massive variance though, my worst team has 49.8 pts.

I have two Hallers.

That said: Oblak, a block Chelsea defence, Ronaldo, Haller and Haaland (c) was still only sufficient for 730th place / 75.7pts.

Nice start lonegunner😎. Excellent work getting in Haller. I knew he had scored a few at Ajax but I never really considered him. pretty much all my 75 striker spots were numerous Messi, Lukaku, mbappe, Ronaldo, haaland, El nasy or whatever his name is from Sevilla with just a couple of lewandowski, one tadic and some L traore’s for his 2 sheriff fixtures.

Very poor start for me 57.5 & 58.5 pts for my two. Only solace is not many transfers for everyone means my players could do better next time, plus a lot were away this week.

This game is anyone's, leads can quickly dissipate in short formats with a simple wrong captains pick, that's what the eternal optimist in me says anyway :D
