Welcome to UniqueFC!! I'll keep this short and to the point..
We need to get everyone signed up to the main site (you need to sign up for the game separate to the blog - though feel free to use the same login details) and into the created league.
Ideally, if we can get everybody to sign up today, with use of the priority queue, we should be able to complete the draft prior to next game week’s kickoff. So once you have signed up to the site , please join the league with the code:
The sooner you sign up the better! - The order of draft selection is based on the order of players signing up. By default, the league-creator picks first ;) but Nirav and I will skip our first turn in the interest of fairness.
Once you have joined the league, reply here and we can get the draft going once all 10 players are in.
So.. Let's get cracking! Really looking forward to this!
Ps - If you have 'created'/joined a league yourself already, we will have to reset your account, in which case let me know the email address you signed up with...
Sorry when is the draft again? Am from Singapore so need to catch the timing properly so I can set my alarm
All done mate.
New league code is:
Don't wake up specially for it (even though a fantasy nut such as myself would do).
Each draft pick lasts 8 hours so you have plenty of time. And you can also set the priority queue to let the system pick your player of choice for you.
We'll see if we can get everyone signed up by tomorrow otherwise I'll post an updated draft time here.
1) Just to ensure that everyone gets all the updates on this thread, please subscribe to this post (just a matter of clicking the link at the bottom right of the article).
2) Slight issue that we need to address. It has come about due to some miscommunication between Nirav and myself (the draft started on Friday rather than on Monday as it should have), which means we will have to set up the league all over again. This will waste about about 5 minutes of everyones time and we apologize for that. I have created a new league but in order to join it I need you to send me the email address you used to register your account, so that I can reset it in order for you to rejoin.
Again, sorry for the bother! But we should have the draft done and dusted by the end of the week!
Some of you might have tried to set-up your priority list. It would not work as yet. Once the draft starts, everyone in the league will get an email notification (it may be in your spam, in that case mark it as a friendly message). Upon starting the draft, the priority list functionality will be usable and everyone will then be able to pick players (drag and drop) into their priority lists (make sure you save once you add or edit your list).
We have extended the draft start date to Monday after this coming gameweek because we are still waiting on a couple of users to join the league.
Any problems or issues, email me on [email protected]
Thanks for joining and hoping this is a cracking second half of the season.. And I'm a gooner btw!
How will the draft work? Auto-draft?
The draft has been designed to be a hybrid of live and auto. Once the draft starts, every one of us has a window in which to select players. If we wish, we can use the priority queue to automate some of this (e.g. - If you know your turn is next and that you want either Aguero or Suarez, in that order of priority, you set your queue up so that it picks whichever of the two is available).
The priority queue can be changed during the draft.. So you aren't obligated to use it for all your picks.
It should be much clearer once it begins. In the meantime, this post by Nirav is quite useful.
