Where are the points from the first round of Bundesliga?
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
You don't get them. Points start from 17th aug this year
SzakalNH (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Yes, of course. Why would I get the point of the hat-trick Abumeyang. The poor always wind in the eye and anchor in the back

I am just wondering why EPL players are priced so high.

Why is Bale 26 million? I think that is ridiculous if he is the highest priced midfielder in the EPL he should be 21 mil the most because I don't think he is head and shoulder above players like Ribery, Iniesta and Ozil.

All I am saying is I think the EPL prices need to be adjusted. It is ridiculous how some of the players are priced when the other players(in other leagues) who are just as good or better are not as expensive
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
This is why I'm rolling with no EPL players this year
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 year ago
90% of the prices are based on how well a player performed last year.

The other 10% we manually adjust to take into account transfers/injuries etc (this is generally where you get your bargains as we will miss a few). There is also a premium added to superstar players so we don't end up with 8, 000 teams with the same headline players in them.

I think it would've been nice to make Messi a 40m player and Ronaldo a 35m one, given the fact Mata, Bale and Hazard are 22-26m. Messi at 31m is actually a bargain, and that's been proven for 4 years straight now. Without him (below 40m anyway), you don't have a chance.

But apart from a few players that I think have been spotted by us hardy and thorough DF players, I think this is the best DF so far yet, concerning player pricing. Good job!

I think the player prices are fine except for the EPL prices. They are inflated. It is more than logical for Messi to be 31m and Ronaldo at 29 (if not 30 or the same as Messi). Bale is not worth 26 mil when there are other midfielders who are better that are way cheaper. Are you saying that Bale performed better than Ribery, Iniesta, Ozil, and Mata? Even Mata is something around 24-25 mil which is ridiculous. Iniesta, Ozil and Ribery are all priced from 18-21 which is logical because there is no way you can have more than one of them without downgrading your team somewhere else. Unless you find a really good bargain.

What you are doing is setting up people to buy players from the other three leagues, which defeats the purpose of having a more diverse team from players. In my opinion, some of the EPL prices need to go down in order to match the prices of the other three leagues.

To be honest, I don't want Bale and he wouldn't be my first or second choice.... The reason why I mention it is because I think it is ridiculous that he is priced so much higher than other midfielders

I think the price of plsyers sre ridiculously expensive

Like I stated before, david villa, higuain, Albiol, benzema, tevez, all have price tags awarded to them which should not have been.... They either weren't even close to their best, had the worst seasons, suffered or returning from injury, barely featured for their teams.... How does thatn justify their performance last season in relation to their high price tags....

I can understand players who were in the top 20 for their positioms + messi and ronaldo but some prices are just unnecessary; it takes the fun in gambling with them away.... Considering that they all moved to other big teams too and it's not certain they'll have a fantastic season due to the fact that they just might not fit into their new teams
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
Villa is only about 17m; very fair for the top striker of a top team. Albiol is 10m, which is actually very little for a player who plays for Napoli and will play tons. Tévez is only 15. 5m.... I'm not sure what you expect DF to be. A Messi+Ronaldo+Bale+Mata+Iniesta snoozefest? If the 100 best players in the world aren't extremely expensive, everyone will just pick the same famous 11. I would even like to see a further +30% increase to all players' prices
Ltm017 1 year ago
Jeroen I have to disagree with you on this. I think last season prices were much better and fair. Even if the prices were a little cheaper it wouldn't allow everyone to choose the same player. Setting players like Bale at 26m is actually doing that. Why? Why would I choose Bale when I can just go for any of the other top midfielders in the world for 21 mil or less? I am saving 5m there and that can go towards another player.

No, some of the prices are not fair. Especially for players that didn't have a great season or that just came back from injury. Even last season there were only so many people that had Messi and Roanldo and/or Iniesta/Mata/Ozil. Yes, people had at least one of them, but the combination was very different. This was the case especially for people who picked players that switched leagues and took the risk with the players before they were found to be good. In my opinion, this is all about risk. It would be more understandable if they were a bit cheaper now and then before the next transfer window their prices increased because they are performing well. With the amount of transfers it is not a guarantee everyone will be a hit. Also, I don't think Tevez had had that great of a season. He shouldn't be any more than 15m and that is too much he should be 13m.

Albiol? Who? LOL Jeroen I know he will play for Napoli, but he was at Real Madrid and we barely saw him. Actually, we saw him most of the time in photo's when Casillas or one of the starting 11 was on the bench. He shouldn't be anymore than 7mil.

Anyway, I hope I am not the only to see that the EPL prices are ridiculous. I know this is a primarily English site and I don't mean anything by it, but those prices show the bias
Jimmybreeze (Manchester United) 1 year ago
I wonder how many different ways to play the game there are? The different strategies?

You can buy a star player for defence, midfield and striker and hope they get the points and then try to build a team around them consisting of 3-8m players.

You can work out that you need at least 12 people and you have a budget of 120mil so you give yourself 10mil for every position.

You can take the riskier option and play players that you know aren't guaranteed starters but you hope they make their way into their team.

I'm sure there are many more.
What's your strategy?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
Buy Messi and randomly fill the slots
SzakalNH (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Messi, Neuer and coach from Juve, Bayern, Barca, Real M or BvB.... And rest
Daalayo (Liverpool) 1 year ago
Do you really mean "Goal assist 5pts*. (League and Champions League matches only)" this season? Because, I saw certain players receiving points for assist in Europa League last year
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 year ago
This has always been an issue linked to our data providers in the later stages last year they did report assist data for the Europa league. So if they expand their coverage then you will get the points
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Just curious, how many of you managed to get subs?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
I did. And my star players are worth 64. 5m together. Look hard and you can assemble a top team with great star players and subs (well, 1) after all. I'm really pleased with my squad, I just wished DF started before today. Definitely before the 17th. Because now Bundesliga players are worth a lot less, since their first games of the season don't count at all
Hithere (Manchester United) 1 year ago
My team looks crap honestly. Other than my star players plus about two more, I have no idea who the other players are, just picking them based on last season's stats lol. I don't have a single EPL player either, don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing. Can't afford a sub at the moment.

Oh well, I thought my last couple of DF teams were relatively strong and ended up doing crap so maybe this time they look crap but will do well.
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Thanks Matt and to everyone else that put all the effort in to make the new DF season available. Thanks for putting the prices up as well, the players from the very top teams are untouchable, great! As this is going to be the most competitive season till now.
Somere (Portmore Utd) 1 year ago
Kevin Gameiro is not on Sevilla either
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Neither is raul rusescu who came from steaua bucharest, he was top goal scorer of the Romanian league...

Hello Matt,    You can cancel M.Bastos from Schalke04 , he left already.  Source:https://twitter.Com/s04/status/362962327382933505
Somere (Portmore Utd) 1 year ago
Matt can you add please Adnan Januzaj to the game. Also why is zaha a striker?
Cjayzz (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
I was also wondering thesame thing...
Cjayzz (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Can we at least get to share our teams before the season starts.... Will be nice to see what other ppl teams look like as we did last season....

It helped in exchanging ideas
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
The point of keeping the teams hidden is that people don't get copied. It happens every year and people already will have 50% of the same players because they were told to buy them anyway. I really like not being able to see other people's teams, or there would be almost no competition at all
Cjayzz (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Well last year, we were allowed and were able copy the page of our line up and share on a forum....

Yes the the teams have to be hidden till the transfer window is closed and dreamfooty official starts but if a forum can be created for those of us who don't mind sharing our teams, it will be nice
Fiasc0 (Eintracht Braunschweig) 1 year ago
Last year I posted a screenshot of my DF team. Feel free to do so Cjayzz.  
Fiasc0 (Eintracht Braunschweig) 1 year ago
Btw: When I copy your team it is possible to get your team cheaper then you did
Cjayzz (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Honestly I thinkmore mony should be located for the transfer.... At least 10 million more there is no way we can even make up a decent team with this price tags....

The prices where right to be increased but there are many that were so escalated that it even seems like a joke.

1. I thought when player get transferred there should be a reasonable price tag attached to them considering we don't really know how they'll perform at their respective new club; that's what makes the gamble fun.... E. G David Villa, Wifred Bony, Gonzalo higuain, Pepe Reina e. T. See just have high inflated price tags.... Carlos tevez who was poor last season and david villa who didn't even feature much at those prices....come on
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 year ago
Your point is the reason why the those prices have been placed on the players Villa, Higuain and Tevez have gone from teams where they have been used in rotation to teams where they are going to play every week.

Bony is a class act and has moved to a free scoring Swansea side hence his price.

I know it's frustrating when you think you know a secret player only to discover we also knew about him and have priced him accordingly. Trust me there are probably plenty we have missed so just requires a bit more digging for your bargains
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 1 year ago
Hi matt,
You have mentioned above that "So from today until the 17th of August you can create and perform as many transfer as you like" - does that mean I can select players and save my full squad today and then I can completely reshuffle the team tomorrow. Or will it allow me to transfer only 4 players once the team is saved today.... ?
Thank you
Jimmybreeze (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Do whatever you want - sell as many, buy as many until the 17th when the team at that time will be chosen as your first 11 for the competition
