Hello Amins! Apparently, there is an issue with my formation. Looks like the starting IX hasn`t been updated. It just shows the old team, the new players aren`t included, how come?
Rubin (Inter Milan) 6 days ago
Starting IX? Didn't know dreamfooty teams were made of 9 players.

Now about your question, maybe you saved the team after the Tuesday save point?
Boloss (Manchester United) 6 days ago
Lol oh yeah ahah! Well, everything is fine now, my lastest squad has been added up. Cheers!

Hey guys,

I've got Victor Ruiz who is on loan at Villarreal, but he's registered as a Valencia player (from the start of the season). I want to get someone else from Valencia, but can't due the 2 player limit.

Is there a way to update this situation without having to lose a change by selling him and buying him back?

Thanks for the help!

Also, Luciano Vietto, among some others, are not registered for Villarreal

Please help!
My account is not letting me put in my star defender. I put Bonucci as my star defender on Aug 30, he went on to get 42 points and 3 consecutive clean sheets and it's showing that I don't have a star defender.
To make things worse, when I saw this bug 3 days ago, I went ahead and made Bonucci my star defender again and right now I went back on my DF team and yup it shows up like I don't have a star def.

Please help, I'm losing valuable points here....
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Badge, this may sound stupid on your part (sorry for that) but are you saving the team after confirming the star status?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
If it's not what Malik said, could you post a screenshot of your team when you've saved them with the star applied to a defender and the team saved? I've never heard of this bug before. If you're able to appoint a defender as the star and save the team, but it still doesn't recognise your star defender, there's something very weird going on
Badge (Manchester United) 1 week ago
That awkward moment when you realize you're a complete idiot....

Thanks guys, that was what was wrong this entire time. Thanks so so much for your help, or else it would've stayed like that forever, lol! I never knew you actually had to save your team after assigning a star player....

Sigh, lost 42 points because of this.
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
I know that feel Bro, happened with me last season but I realized it after first round of matches.

I usually revisit the team management page after any changes to team, just to confirm that changes I have done are actually done

Aw man, that blows. Well, at least you didn't have 5 Bundesliga players unfairly robbed of their DFP Pokal points eh?
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
I might have been in top 10 had that DFP Pokal points stood -_-    I still hope matt look into this and agree with majority

I haven't get the points from yesterday matches for my updated players
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
If you mean transferred players, then that update won't count until after Tuesday, so they will only gain points for matches they feature in after Tuesday

Hello Matt, there is a problem from last night`s update. I moved from 500pts to 555pts, instead of 563pts. My totals points per players are correct from yesterday but there are 8 points missing from the overall total, could you please rectify this?
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
Points from the first cup game were removed from all Bundesliga players. That's why
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 1 week ago
Hi Rubin, I guess you`re talking about the Leverkusen match isn`t it?!

The 8 points I'm currently missing come from:

- V. Ibisevic (Stuttgart), 3 points against FC. Koln on Aug 30th (his totals show 3 instead of 6pts).
- oh. Kirch (Dortmund), 5 points against Stuttgarter Kickers on Aug 16th (total: 0pts instead of 5)
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
I'm saying that points were removed from all Bundesliga teams, not just Leverkusen
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Yeah, all of us who bought Bundesliga players pretty much got screwed over
Hittash (Liverpool) 6 days ago
Jereon tell me what is the use of finding quality low cost players at start of the season and still they all in same price range. Better can we stay with established players and after the first transfer window we can easily find out low cost quality players by their performance on league and cup games

Hi Matt, I just checked my DF team's score in detail for the first time this season and I'm a bit confused as I think there might have been a mistake

My star defender was Chiellini and on August 31st, I opened my emergency transfer and sold him and I instantly put Bonucci as my star defender. I remember confirming Bonucci as my Rock in the back and being satisfied with my decision. He's played 2 games since, won both and had 2 clean sheets (14+14 points). Today when I checked my team, I was surprised to see I apparently didn't have a star CB!

What happened? Is there anything I can do? I lost 28 points because of that.
Please please let me know if there's something I can do, I had opened my emergency transfer a big part because I wanted to change my star defender early in the season, and this would be a major blow to my team.
I have no idea what happened and I'm really discouraged by this as I'm already way behind the top 100 due to this. I'd really appreciate your help!

Also, Kagawa has 10 points when he should've had 12.
He played 2 games this season: 1 vs MK dons where he played part of the game (2 points), and one with Dortmund where he played part of the game, scored and won the game (2+5+3=10).

I'm crossing my fingers in hope that maybe there's something that can be done, but I'd totally understand if you couldn't help me.
Thanks in advance mate
Badge (Manchester United) 1 week ago
Okay there's definitely something wrong with my account. Right after I saw that I didn't have a star defender 2 days ago, I went and put Bonucci as my star defender again. This morning I log in to see that, yup, I don't have a star defender! Meanwhile Bonucci went and got another clean sheet! That's 42 points (14+14+14) that I didn't get due to this bug.

What do I do?! I'm losing so many points here! Can someone please help me? This is just plain unfair at this point
Malik (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
Okay guys I got the reason of decrease in my points during the international breaks,

All my German players plus manager lost their points for the cup matches they played on 17/08/2014, initially points for this matches were allocated correctly bar that matches played on 15th, my player that played in same competition on 16th still shows correct points,

Here is the list of players in question and their points allocation

Points for my team - Total for season / correct points

-Guardiola 4 - 19
-Alaba * 10 (20*) - 21 (42*)
-Lewandowski 19 - 30

I had all of them from start.

Now even Wolfsburg played a match on same date (17th) & points allocation for my Wolfsburg player is still correct, so this can't be the issue with whole day, maybe only Bayern players have got this issue.

Or Maybe instead of Bayer Leverkusen, points reduction was done for Bayern munchen players?

Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
Yeah, in my team Alaba is also missing his points from that DFP game; 11 points to be precise, 22 because he's my star defender. Same goes for all German players (of which I have 5) I suppose!
Malik (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
I'm missing about 48 points :/
ZIZOO (Real Madrid) 2 weeks ago
So after all this the Leverkusen points are still there and the Byern Munich points and other teams which should've counted which and were legit since they were after the close window were removed. This is making the game just pure luck on what decides to be counted and what doesn't.
It is ruining the fun out of this game
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
I agree with ^. I had Bayern Munich players and no Leverkusen players and I lost points. Why is it taking so long for this problem to get fixed? Or is it even going to get fixed?
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
No zizoo , guys with Leverkusen players are saying that the extra points has been removed , only issue now is that bayern players points are also reduced , once they come back everything will be fine

I know its bit frustrating this year but I'm sure matt will sort this out , meanwhile

Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Malik, the Leverkusen game the day before DF kicked off still counts. I still have 35 pts from Kiessling too many and I lack 22 points from Alaba from that one Bayern game
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 week ago
The patch to remove the points for the cup games played before the start of the Dreamfooty opening weekend seems to have missed a few matches so I'll adjust and re run it. So you will see more points deductions over the next 24 hours.

Please let me know if you see any points missing outside of this
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
Matt, the only team that should have been impacted by the patch should have been Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile points were removed even from Bayern Munich players. Are you restoring the points to the Bayern Munich players?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Yes, exactly what Rubin said. Only Leverkusen was affected in that one game. Instead, the results from Bayern's game on August 17 was deleted from the tables, though it still appears on the points of players when you click on them.

If the Leverkusen game rightly gets scrapped, the Bayern game should definitely be added again. Guys like Malik lost nearly 50 points there, which will mean a difference of several spots if he ends up in the top 10 at the end of the year
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 week ago
What is going to happen to make it as fair as possible to everyone is all points from the first round matches are going to be removed.

Having one (counting) match before the start of the game and several after is unfair and confusing. So to clarify the matter and put an end to it ALL points awarded for the first round cup games will be deducted.

Thank you for all your feedback on this matter

Matt could you put Di Natale back in the game please? I would consider his absence a bug
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 week ago
ZIZOO (Real Madrid) 1 week ago
Sounds fair to me. Thx mate
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
I don't get it. Why even bother removing points for all teams? If this situation is unfair and confusing, then the easy solution in my opinion would be to just ignore the fact that Bayer Leverkusen played a cup game before the other teams and just count their points
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
So the patch that remove Germany cup games is activated -_-

I have lost total of 63 points and as anyone will be I'm quite disappointed, I don't its fair and if I knew this before picking my team I would never thought of having 5 players from be. Liga

I'm really not sure if I wanna continue this anymore -_-
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
@Zizoo, I would like to know how many points you will lose because of that?

@ matt, I think its unfair to wipe off points from allowed cup games, It was quite clear in DF info that match that will count will start from 16th of aug and TBH I don't see any user demanding points from that Leverkusen game, so best thing to do imo is to just remove that Leverkusen points and let the other matches count.

If you want to remove all the German cup games then it will be better if you remove EPL matches also played on same days (16 & 17 th aug) too, I'm sure lots of users considered these cup matches while picking their teams, so if you remove that cup games alone that will be one less match for user with Buli player.

I hope you will agree with this
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Lol, OK. I don't see how this is fair at all though. I lost more than the 35 points from Kiessling and on top of that I didn't get points from Alaba for his game on August 17 and from my Napoli players from last week. The Bayern game was played after everyone saved their teams here, so it should count. Oh well, I'm confident in my abilities to catch up. The season is still long.

And of course the people who think this 'sounds fair' just made a giant leap up. They're the ones who nag whenever a single point too much is given to a player they don't have, but now all is good, of course
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
Malik has a good point. How come points from German cup games are removed, but points from EPL games played on the same dates are not removed?
The only way to make this fair is to get rid of the patch and count the points for Bayer Leverkusen players, as well as the rest of the German teams. A lot of people would not invest on so many Bundesliga players knowing that points from the cup games would not count. Now that those points are removed, that's UNfair
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
Btw as Jeroen pointed it out, Zizoo who thinks that this "sounds fair" went up all the way to 4th spot
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
@Rubin, Exactly, I'm still not sure, why removing points from Leverkusen players will create confusion or is unfair, everyone had the information that match played before 16th won't count and as I said it will be only fair if points from other cup games count or all the points from matches played before 19th of aug should be removed.

I had only one EPL player that didn't played, so off course it will gave me advantage but on other hand I have already lost 63 points.
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 week ago
I agree with you, but Idk, it seems like Matt can't just take away Leverkusen's points. I'm not an IT guy, but I'm guessing that's the problem
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
If that's the case then I'm okay with counting Leverkusen's points
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
The Leverkusen points are now deducted, as are all Bundesliga points from the DFP Pokal games
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
@j, its been done since yesterday, I was sitting at 36th place after that, my current downward fall is because of ronaldo -_- well at least I have messi to rescue my season
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
Hi Matt, is the patch definitive?

- before the patch Jeroen had 412pts (including the 70pts from Kiesling).
- despite the patch having been applied, Jeroen's total shows 390pts instead of 342pts.

I'm using him as an example because on the ''Show of your Dreamfooty Team'' thread, Kiesling (5 goals scored on the 15th) is part of his team.

Yeah.... We all know it's just a game, and we truely appreciate the time and efforts that you've been investing for the past seasons to keep running Dreamfooty smoothly, but I must say that the allocation of the points to the participants has been unfair and inconsistent recently. That's a pity.

Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
I never had Kiessling as my star striker mate, so I should be down 35 points to 377. Strangely enough, Kiessling should be at 48 points now, but he's at 72 for me. Which means that if you correct his points to 48, I'm down to 366; 11 less than it should be. So some other player had points deducted for no reason it seems. This probably also explains why people like Malik (see post below) actually lost points while not having a single Leverkusen player.

That said, both players above me in the rankings have Kiessling too, but one of them (Kylesmethurst) actually gained points on me (and leap-frogged me as a result) in comparison to my loss. Something's up there I think. I wonder if the points of other Leverkusen players have been corrected as well? Many people have the goalkeeper, a defender or midfielder of theirs too
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
He was your star striker Jeroen, after that game you were placed among the top 10. Nobody would miss this opportunity to set a striker who scored 5 goals as their star player and get a comfortable start with 70pts, obviously.
Roughly speaking, as I said above you should have a total of 342pts (412-70) just like any other participant who's had him as a star striker. That's it.

Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
What? Who do you think you are assuming that?! Matt can see exactly who has been my star striker (Auba) this season. Or do you think I already used up a transfer window just to change the star? I'll be accepting your apology for pretty much calling me a liar here
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
T'as tout compris mon ptit belge comme d'hab.... Lol anyways, good luck everyone including the Dreamfooty Guru
Malik (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
There is a slight fluctuation in leader board again today -_-

Patch is still not activated, if you check top 20 strikers it still shows that Kiessling have 83 points when he should just have 48 points,

I bought two Leverkusen player after opening an emergency transfer and they both got correct points for last two matches.

With patch still to have an effect and all this fluctuation, I'm starting to think that players playing in Euro qualifiers are also getting points :/
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
Whatever. I was so honest to be the first to notify Matt of this issue on his wall, I don't appreciate being called a liar here. I had 35 points too much from Kiessling, my only Lever player, not a single point more
St1or (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
Kiesling is at 48 points for me and I have pretty much had him for every game except for that Friday game when he got 35 points. I think the points are still updating? Either way, I think those who have unfairly lost points should post here and those who have gained an advantage should too.

Because I haven't kept track of my points since the last set of games so I don't know who had how many points, etc.

And PS: I hope the patch fixed ALL games and removed all the points that were gained from other players other than Kiesling
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
I guess the patch isn`t 100% complete for the Leverkusen match since Jeroen went from 412 to 390 (-22pts) instead of going from 412 to 377 (-35pts) as he admitted it in a few posts above. (regardless of the star issue of course)
Rubin (Inter Milan) 2 weeks ago
I haven't had any Leverkusen players and just like Malik my ranking has gone down
Tanmay 2 weeks ago
@Malik - the leaderboard will always include the extra 35 points Kiessling got. (Last year, points earned before opening day were not added to player scores, but they were still counted on the leaderboard tables.)
Malik (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
This means that patch is already in effect, but apparently points from both Bayer and Bayern are deducted, I know as far as DF goes bayern players are OP but still deducting points for allowed match day isn't the solution
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 2 weeks ago
The patch has been applied but partially. I'm keeping track of how the pointw are being allocated, 'cause if the supposedly patch was 100% complete certain participants like Jeroen would be at -26 right now
Malik (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
Well he is off to 3rd place now, I'm not 100 % sure about the patch but decrease in points for bayern players mean the points still have some sorting to do.

I'm sure Jeroen must have lost more points then expected because of decrease in his bayern players points also
Jeroen (Barcelona) 2 weeks ago
Yeah, I noticed something weird was up, but I didn't know/care to find out which players lost points who earned them rightfully. Kiessling should be at 35 points less for everyone, 70 points for the people who have him as the star. Alaba and other Bayern players were robbed off their points from the DFP Pokal game on August 17, but that was a game that should've stood
St1or (Barcelona) 4 weeks ago
Just posting to see if there's an update on the Bayer Leverkusen-Friday-game-bug-thing. Any idea on when the patch will take effect?

This patch has now been applied, new points totals will appear within 24hrs.    If you notice anything odd let me know
Malik (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
Hi matt,

Just noticed that top 100 players are still fluctuating, if I am not wrong after last mach before international break I was in top 100 but now I'm down to 161st place, maybe some players are getting points from these friendlies and qualifiers.

And I also didn't had any Leverkusen player or points from that match played on 15th, so after this patch I should have gone up then going down
CrossfireKeeper (Liverpool) 1 month ago
So I'm not sure about others, but the function to click on a players points and see how much they earned from certain matches has never worked/updated for me ever since it switched from just being the list of points a couple years ago. Any way it can switched back to that system or the current function improved?
Rubin (Inter Milan) 1 month ago
I second this. This system doesn't work and the graph isn't that important. Anybody can figure out which players work and which don't without needing a useless graph

I'd love for it to go back to the old system. Everything was so nice and simple and clear!

But the points will show after 10 games played I think
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 weeks ago
OK stats are now live for this season.

I appreciate the suggestions so if you want to take a look at what we currently have now its working and if you want to see more/less then let me know
Tanmay 2 weeks ago
@Rubin I totally disagree. Later in the season the graph will show you when your players' performance plateaus, or sees a sudden upward spike. If the player in question plays for, say, Koln and you haven't been paying attention lately, that's very useful
