So I was pm'd about the Official Fantasy Premier League game being opened and it's about time! Since the game has been fully launched, you guys can create your own teams and sign up for our private league. It seems like no rules have been changed in a dramatic fashion so the fantasy veterans don't need to read up on too much rules (although it's always encouraged).
We've got two leagues in play here. The first one is the Manchester United Forum - Classic League, where players will climb and fall down the table depending on their overall fantasy points. The one on the top is the ultimate winner.
The other one is the Manchester United Forum - H2H League, where fixtures will be automatically selected and forum members will compete directly with other forum members. You win, you get 3 points. You draw, you get 1 point. You lose, you get nothing. This is how you'll climb up and down the table. The league will end with two knockout rounds - the last round will determine who wins the league.
If you are interested in playing, I recommend you head over to the Official Fantasy Premier League website by clicking on the link below:
Select your team, read the rules (please do), and send me a message so that I may give you the codes to enter both leagues. Currently, the rules are that only actual forum members are allowed to participate. I will only give the codes to members that have made a minimum of 10 posts. Anyone can sign up for the Classic league at any time, even during the season - although you will be at a disadvantage if you don't sign up early on. However, the H2H league will close at the start of the season. I will register members in pairs (first come, first serve) so that we have an even number of competitors. So please, sign up immediately so you can have a better chance of entering.
I just want to give you all the heads up - I'm not sure if I can update this thread weekly like I have in the past. I will certainly try but a lot of stuff is changing in my life right now so I've found myself to be quite erratic with my responsibilities. But hey, I have to prioritize, so while I will do my best to keep this game going, I'd encourage you guys to keep this thread alive. If anyone here thinks they can take on the responsibility of sending reminders before the gameweek deadlines, that would be awesome. I think I can post the tables and results, it's just that I may find myself posting them a bit late every once in a while.
So please, send me a message so that I can give you the codes - let's get this game rolling!
