Hi Matt, I have a problem with my Dreamfooty, Mario Balloteli played on Saturday and I didn't get any points at all.... Please I would appreciate if you can help me with that.

Thanks mate
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Balloteli did not play on Saturday and therfore did not earn any points
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 years ago
I checked out the top players list, and it includes (quite logically so) the points of August as well. Perhaps that can be edited out some way? If not, no problem, I kind of like the fact it is included.

Another thing: I made Kompany, Iniesta and Messi my stars, but while Kompany and Messi did get double points, Iniesta did not (yet?). Could this be looked into and solved please?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
We thought we would Include all the points to give a fairer reflection on the players themselves. I will look into you issue and update you on your wall
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 4 years ago
Disagree.... It is meaningless if it doesn't co inside with the actual game.... Anyone could have had a great week or so before the game started.... So what. This game should start with the first game of the season in the leagues picked.... Makes more sense.... I know.... I know.... I'll go away now....

Hey Matt I'm confused, I still don't have my star midfielder?! Blaszczykowski isn't appearing as my star maestro. Can you fix it please?
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Make sure to save the team after setting the star. If it still doesn't work, try a different browser. And if it still doesn't work.... Well only Matt knows
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 years ago
And if Matt doesn't know, God only knows. And it's kinda hard to speak with him these days I heard
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated. Let me know if after trying the helpful advice from Hithere you are still having issues
Cebolla (FC Porto) 4 years ago
Thanks a lot for the tip guys. It worked great Matt could you please correct the points allocation for Kuba, as it still shows 8pts instead of 16pts
BlueMoon420 (Manchester City) 4 years ago
The transfer window closes in 5 days so hopefully someone can help me out before then. I picked out my team and saved it, but in a fit of madness decided this year would be the year Pato stays healthy. A few days later he inevitably was injured again, but now I can't seem to change my team at all.

I can sell Pato, but when I click the Buy Players tab he reappears on my team-sheet. I can't change my team at all. I've tried other players and basically my team is locked in. Any ideas?

Much Appreciated!
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I seem to still be able to edit.... Perhaps clearing your cache or using an alternate browser would help
Hithere (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Quite a few people seem to be having trouble saving their teams. Like Zhenwei said, just try a different browser, it worked for most people
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Can anyone experiencing 'saving' issues please state which browser they are using so we can see if we can replicate the error. Thanks

This isn't a bug but it is a problem I keep having. Most games I try to watch highlight the video section, I get a notice saying *sorry THE video can't BE played FROM MY current location*
Tony (footytube staff) 4 years ago
It means your country is blocking your attempt to watch it, not a lot we can do about that mate
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Hey, I believe I found a small bug, not sure what caused it though.

First off my point total is correct, the problem is that 4 of my players didn't get an update for their point totals for the March 3rd fixture. I waited to see if the next point update would solve it, Zieler got 2 points today but the total did not fix itself

After reading a couple of other comments the problem seems exactly like Innocious's

The players who have this problem are Zieler, Badstuber, Boateng and Alexis.

The correct totals should be: Zieler (203), Badstuber (495), Boateng (181), Ilicic (148) and Alexis (45)

It isn't a big issue, just wanted to let you know that there was a problem
Saalsi (Barcelona) 4 years ago
The transfer window is open - that is great. But some of the players are missing from some of the teams. I'd especially like to see the AC Milan midfielders to be updates, as well as the Schalke 04 attackers. Is possible? Cheers
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Players are fixed in the clubs they are registered with at the start of the season
Saalsi (Barcelona) 4 years ago
And new players who started the season in other countries, but are bought into the dreamfooty leagues do not get into the game?
Ant (Liverpool) 4 years ago
This is correct. Likewise if a player transfers out from any of the four major leagues to an unsupported league, he will not get any more points. However, if a players transfers from one supported league to another, such as Fabregas, he will continue to get points at his new team
Saalsi (Barcelona) 4 years ago
Ok. Thanks for the answers! Have to buy players accordingly then...
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Ashley Young is my star midfielder yet I'm not receiving double points from him. It's been so since I sold my late star midfielder and changed him with young. Somebody kindly please check.
Tony (footytube staff) 4 years ago
I'm not recieving any points for him either mate 'cause he's injured.... Lol, he's my star midfielder as well.
I'm sure matt will check it out, are you sure you made him your star player and saved it?
I know its a stupid question, but its a common mistake with our users
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Thanks Tony and sorry for the delay (I was on a trip) Yep I did he is my star player, and no it was the same from the beginning. When Matt comes around, hopefully he will take a look at it. It's frustrating though, seems as if I jinxed him since I bought him. If it's be the next my next target will be David Silva
Cheers mate
Ant (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Matt should be able to see exactly when you got him, and when you made him a star player. Hopefully we get an answer soon
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Right here is your history:

You bought A. Young on the 30/08
You made him your Midfield Maestro on the 1/10
You have benched him since the 1/11

For the 2 games he has played since the 1/10 he has received double points for you:

Match: Manchester United 1-6 Manchester City Points: 3 you received 6
Played full match + 3

Match: Liverpool 1-1 Manchester United Points: 1 you received 2
Played part of this match + 2
Drawn game + 1
Yellow Card - 2
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Matt there must be an error. I clearly remember that I made young my star player since day one. If you check I actually spent one of my emergency transfers to buy him and I'm sure that I made him a star then.
Thanks for the insight in the matter but please double check again this one month delay is my actual problem.
Ant (Liverpool) 4 years ago
All Matt can go by is the data stored in the tables in the database, otherwise its your word against the fully automated system. Perhaps when you made him star back in August, you closed the browser before it had actually saved, or similar.

I fully understand your belief that you had his starred from day one, but the system can't accidentally set the dates wrong for a single player. When you click star player, the webpage sets a date in your record, and that's what Matt is looking at.

If Matt was to go, "Ok, I have awarded you double points for every game august to November" then believe me every single player in the game would make a post here asking why their highest scoring player didn't get set as star player back in August, and tell us they clearly remember setting him that way.

I'm sure Matt will check again, but I wouldn't hold out hope of getting those double points because 99. 9999% of the time it has to be user error. There's no code in the system that tells the database to log the star player as happening in October, not August
Ant (Liverpool) 4 years ago
This is assuming of course that there is no glitch in the system affecting everybody, but I think we would have 500 reports of it by now if there was
Pioneercolonel (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Thanks Ant and I totally understand your point. It could be of course my forget to save after as you said and if Matt also thinks so I'm obliged to accept.
So thank you all guys for spending time on my problem.
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Sorry about the late reply but I was of radar for a few days.

I can only go by the information I have and the date of 'starring' Ashley Young. We can only assume at this point that it was a fail to save your team after you made the initial changes and that you went back and reaffirmed the selection later
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I think I encountered a bug. I have Messi in my DF team and he didn't get any points from the champions league match against FC Viktoria Plzen. I read in the FAQ that champions league match is included in point calculation. Is the point updated on certain day? Isn't it supposed to be updated directly after the match?
Sumdumfu (Los Angeles Galaxy) 4 years ago
I got those points. Sure you didn't have him subbed off on tuesday morning or something?
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Nope, I would never sub my Messi
Ant (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Matt will be able to see exactly what happened here when he gets on
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
I am seeing that you got these points:

Match: FC Viktoria Plzen 0-4 Barcelona Points: 26

Sometimes if you are logged on before an update it can take a while to see the changes on your team. Can you confirm you can see these points?
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Yes, indeed I got the points, but the total points doesn't match. My Messi currently has 31 points from Barcelona vs Mallorca + 26 points from Barcelona vs FC Viktoria Plzen + 9 points from Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao, making it total 66 points. He's my star striker so it should be 132 points in total, but the current point he has is 80 points. I assume it's (31 + 9) x 2 so the FC Viktoria Plzen match was not included.

Btw I also tried logging out few hours ago but there's still no change. I'll try logging out again later and inform you.

Edit: Tried logging off few times, still no changes
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Can I get any update about my bugs?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Sorry Innoxious your reply was lost amongst a couple of others I will look into this and get back to you
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Ok, thanks Matt, take your time
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Sorted reply on wall
Innoxious (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Ah I see, that was a weird bug. Thank you for clearing this up Matt
Mauijim (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Tuesday morn line up change did not save. Still on weekend team line up. At least as it is displayed in the current starting eleven?

I am certain I saved the new line up in time, which is Hawaii time 8pm Mon night. Any thoughts?
Already bummed about leaving points on the table over the weekend so I was looking to recover some mid week
Mauijim (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Ahh, oh well. Life aint so bad.  
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Check, check, double check! It's up to all of us to make sure our team has saved
Mauijim (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Well, it seems the four pints have done the trick. The starting eleven are right.
Now if they could only get on the bloody pitch I might get a couple points. Lol.
Cheers guys!
Mauijim (Manchester United) 4 years ago
This has happened on a couple of times now.
On each occasion, I had opened up the emergency transfer window. Made some changes. Then cancelled out the changes. In other words, playing around.
I've done this several times now, and on a few occasions, not every time, it seems to revert to the previous save date. But then corrects itself by the next day.
Maybe it has something to do with clearing the browser or system cache
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
You are spot on Mauijim the system caches your team view whilst you are logged in/have the browser open. This is a necessity to keep the site nice and fast(ish)

If you are ever worried some changes have not taken effect simply log off then on again

I didn't get any points for Kaboul for the final result between Stoke and Spurs before the penalty shoot out.

"Clean sheet and result points are based on full time (90 minutes) scorelines"
Matt (Footytube Staff) 5 years ago
My records show that you have Kaboul on his full total of 65 points which includes the Stoke v Spurs points.

Match: Stoke City 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur Points: 11
Played full match + 3
Clean Sheet + 8
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 5 years ago
I'm talking about the result point that is missing. Which should be 1pt, since both teams drew at the end of the 90 mins.

DreamFooty FAQ: "Clean sheet and result points are based on full time (90 minutes) scorelines"
Matt (Footytube Staff) 5 years ago
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you.

Thank you for pointing this out. We did in fact change the system for this year so that result points are based on match completion including extra time and penalties. We did however overlook the information in the FAQ which was out of date.

The FAQ has now been updated
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 5 years ago
Allright then. Thanks
AlphaPlus (Manchester United) 5 years ago
F. Rodríguez, a defender from VfB Stuttgart hasn't received his well deserved 6 points against SC Freiburg =P
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
1. Was he a sub at any time for you
2. Please wait 7 days for points to appear as they are sometimes delayed
3. Matt will check the details once both of those are satisfied
AlphaPlus (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Yes he was a sub, but I always keep to the deadline. He was in the starting 11 before last Saturday morning's update. Yes I will wait and thank you ^^
Matt (Footytube Staff) 5 years ago
He became active for your side on the 17/09 that game was played on the 16th    F. Rodrí­guez  In::17/09/11
Vivsarkar (Chelsea) 5 years ago
I didn't got the points for Buffon in Juventus opening fixture.... He's my permanant goal keeper.... Never did I sub him off...
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Sometimes points take a few days to get awarded. Check back in a few days and if they still haven't been given Matt can investigate

The link for Dreamfooty league two rankings (100 mil - 115 mil) mistakenly shows the list for the 115 mil - 125 mil rankings.
