Everything you need to know in these uncertain times for football and fantasy
The end of last season was chaotic. Unfortunately, the pandemic doesn’t seem to be ready to leave us alone anytime soon. With the start of the new football season, we are already seeing some turmoil, with teams reporting long lists of players infected with the Coronavirus and some games being postponed.
We’re not here to announce the doomsday, but we are aware of the global situation and how it can impact your fantasy experience. That’s why we have a plan to deal with the problems that will arise with the postponement of matches in all our competitions.
As you know, the fantasy market is locked 1 hour before the Gameweek’s first game. Whenever features for a Gameweek are postponed before its lock, here’s what we’ll do:
- 1 or 2 postponed matches: you will get 2 extra transfers for each game.
- 3 or more games postponed: you will get a wildcard.
With these freebies, you will be able to adjust accordingly and keep your scores up there with the best. Of course, you’ll need to be an active player, but that was always the case if you wanted to be one the best.
This is the trickiest part. If one or more matches are postponed after the Gameweek is locked, there’s no way for us to compensate you. What we can assure you is that every fantasy player will be on the same page. What hurts one, hurts everyone.
Sure, you might be more affected if your squad is full of players whose games won’t count, but that’s just the luck of the game. Maybe this year the strategy will be to spread your choices among a greater number of teams.
Anyway, this is what happens with games postponed after a Gameweek lock.
- These games won’t count for the fantasy.
- Remember that your 4 worst Gameweeks won’t count for your final score, so don’t despair if you have a terrible Gameweek due to postponments.
You can complain all you like, but remember that the problems affect everyone. Keep up to date, make your choices and prove, on the pitch, that you are the best. This might be the toughest year ever. If you win, you have bragging rights for years to come!
