Ultimate FPL 2014/15

Post by quizking »

After last year's false start, this game has now properly launched;

http://ultimate.premierleague.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

£5 entry, £25k first prize (up from the £15k originally mooted last season).

More than one entry per person does appear to be allowed, but each entry has to be made using a different user i.d. - seems a bit odd, and at variance with the strict one entry per person rule in the regular FPL game. Anyway, at least there is now an ISM game with a prize.

I'm in and paid up. I enjoyed the beta version at the end of last season and am looking forward to it in full this season.

That is until I go away in September, miss three GWs and lose interest :|

Where are you reading that?

In the rules section it says "In the interest of fair play each person may only enter one team".

Terms;

12. While there is no limit on the number of entries per household or organisation, only one entry in respect of the Game per unique registered user of the Site is permitted (concerning which the decision of ISM shall be final). Each unique registered user shall be based on a unique email address provided by the Player but nothing shall prevent a Player submitting more than one entry by using different unique registered user accounts.

Ha ha. Well I suppose they will need to clear that up. I suspect that the 'terms' bit is the real answer and the FAQ section of the rules is just a hasty copy and paste job from the standard game.

To be honest, this probably extinguishes my already dwindling interest in the game (for this season at least), especially since the loan system is still for me too expensive. :(

Yes, you are taking the gamble that the player brought in will score more.

I suspect (hope) that this will be clarified to keep it to one person one team, but allows for families to have an entry each.

Otherwise, combined with only one overall and one monthly prize it will reduce my interest (unless I win of course)

I couldn't care less if some individuals decide to enter more than one team using different accounts.

The beta version last season was enjoyable but one team was quite enough for anyone to manage properly. So managers looking after more than one team won't enjoy any unfair advantage. Although I'd look at them slightly askance, it would be more with pity than annoyance.

So I don't see why managers multi-entering, whether or not it's against the spirit of the game, should reduce anyone else's interest in the game.

Here's the relevant british law for this stuff - I can't be bothered to argue the toss, but briefly put as I remember it (and it's partly to do with my real life work running quizzes/games/competitions etc.) - since 2005 free entry comps can specify one entry per person only, but if there is a paid option as in the national lottery for example, then there is no restriction, section 2 is probably most relevant.

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/PD ... 202009.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Whatever, good luck to all - I have always been nonplussed by the appeal of the FPL game seeing as it hasn't ever had a cash prize incentive, hoping that UFPL works out, looks good to me.

Had this at first - the problem is that your team name is too long even though it fits in the box provided. Use a shorter team name and the age verification box becomes active.

Asked UFPL about this and got the following reply:

Hi,

"In the interest of fair play each person may only enter one team".

"Each unique registered user shall be based on a unique email address provided by the Player but nothing shall prevent a Player submitting more than one entry by using different unique registered user accounts".

This is saying that although there is nothing stopping an individual from making multiple accounts using various email addresses (i.e. there is no software in place that detects two entries from one user), it is against the rules and we will try our hardest to make sure that no individual has more than one team.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Ultimate Fantasy Premier League


Looks like a bit of a gap between intention and ability to police it.

Only one team for me anyway.

ah! clever!
thanks

Now passport required!
is it a ukip inspired plot to prevent aliens entering?
it was fun entering 44 character long detail required.
but the photo on the passport they show looks nothing like me. I hope thats not a problem

Why don't they just say in the rules that they only allow one team per person but cannot enforce it legally? Then the fiso-thought-police could swing into action................
a bit of timely knee-capping would soon ensure compliance

I just had a brief look at the game. Bit rubbish from what I've seen now in terms of prize structure. I mean, everyone competing is paying money and in the end only 11 players (10 monthly winners + overall winner) will see some cash? That's bogus. They should at least have a winner per match day as well.

5 in each of the first 3 game weeks and they are carried over if unused so 15 in total then transfers cease till xmas

As many as you like as long as the player you are bringing in is on your bench and has not already played in the same game week. So in effect you can mess around with all 18 of your players, i.e. excluding your eight reserves, as frequently as you like as long as the incoming player hasn't already had a fixture.

@UPS - he asked about manager substitutions not transfers.

Cheers folks!

Shuffled everyone onto the pitch for the matches on the 16th leaving some of the 17th/18th match day big hitters on the bench then had a panic attack re-reading the Manager Substitutions FAQ as "One player only (plus captain)." :D

Just wondering your reasoning as to why there would be similar teams?

In my opinion you can't make transfer between GW3-GW20 so it wouldn't make sense to get rid of say Ramsey for a 7-9m mid who has good games at the start and is ahead by a few points.

Also even if 2 squads were exactly identical thats where player selection, subs, captaincy comes into it and the scores could be very different

exactly, thats what I like about this game, its not just about transfers, but also captaining and selection, hardest decisions last year were along the lines of do I replace a midfielder who scored a solid 4pts on the saturday with an arguably better player who is playing on the sunday but in a difficult fixture etc
