Hi Matt (or any of the other gurus.... Jeroen/Malik etc....), you might be able to help me out with this one.

The Story:

I introduced Bonucci as my star defender and he appears on my current lineup (AND he was assigned as my "rock in defence" before saving). Now later on in the day - on Tuesday, after 08:00hrs - I sold him and set someone else as my star defender.

The Result?

I only got 14 points for Bonucci instead of 28.

The Question

Is this expected behaviour? Is the assignment of a star player not tied to the Sat/Tue savepoint?

The sad things about this:

I missed 14 points
I missed 14 points when I'm just 24 points off 1st place
I had Juanfran as my star defender so if I hadn't changed anything: 28 points
The player I introduced instead of Bonucci also got a clean sheet!

The curiosity:

What would've happened had I sold Bonucci but didn't assign a star to any of the other defenders?
Malik (Barcelona) 6 months ago
Lol I'm no DF guru, I am just a student under master Jeroen's wing

See the thing is that star selection takes effect immediately it's not tied to tue/sat save points, you must have gotten double points for the defender you selected as rock, who apparently either didn't played or his team couldn't kept a clean sheet, So unfortunately the points you received for Bonucci will be considered as correct allocations of points.

If you don't assign a star then you don't get any double point. Even if you rebuy the player who was your ex star, you still have to re select him as star or else he will just receive normal points.

& for missing out on points, I know the feel bro, I myself am missing 60 points from German cup matches :/

Add me I miss almost 65- 70 Points dude...
Rubin (Inter Milan) 6 months ago
I'm surprised that people, who have been using this site for years, still don't know the DF rules. Have you ever tried reading the FAQ?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 6 months ago
Yeah, like Malik says; the star takes effect immediately. Say you have bought a player before a Tuesday or Saturday morning (when the DF teams are saved into the database), but you only make that player the star two days afterwards, right before he plays a game and you save your team again. Then he'll still get double points. The same goes for getting rid of the star, which is what happened with your Bonucci, apparently. Your question as to what would happen if you didn't assign the star has the same answer: no one would get double points.

Anyway, like many of us, I got royally screwed too because my team revolved around German players. I lost about 100 points because the DFP Pokal games were scratched from the Dreamfooty scores even though they should have counted as it says so in the rules the Pokal games count, and the players I lost points from (Bayern, Wolfsburg, Dortmund and Mönchengladbach players) all played after DF kicked off. Instead of just removing the points from the Leverkusen game which was played the day before DF started, they removed ALL points from German players.

So if you want to talk about an unfair loss of points.... Well, your mistake was a mistake you could've avoided while hundreds of others lost a major amount of points for no valid reason. I don't like it, but I just remind myself it's just a game. Like a referee giving the opposition a penalty which clearly wasn't
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 6 months ago
Hi Jeroen and Malik.... Thanks for your explanations. Yeah it was my mistake indeed (that's why I'm so disappointed! ) I too lost points during the infamous August weekend but I'm pretty sure that Matt will eventually work his magic and get that sorted too.

Message to Rubin: sorry for asking a humble question. I read the FAQ mate but this part is not so clear to me. Oh maybe you're a genius, have already been through this so you don't bother. Thanks for your detailed reply, keep it up.

Malik (Barcelona) 6 months ago
@ElGaucho, TBH I'm not sure about that DFP Pokal games.

Anyone here think it will be sorted? Because apparently it over and won't get rectified
Jeroen (Barcelona) 5 months ago
No, it will not get sorted. Why? Not because it's fair this way, it is not, but because by now most people have different players. I have sold KDB, Huntelaar and Robben who lost points. It's waaaaay too much work to check who had which players who shouldn't have had their points cancelled.

All we can do is pride ourselves with the knowledge we would have a lot more points and most likely be up higher in the charts because of it too

Is the transfer window opening today?
Tanmay (Footytube Moderator) 6 months ago
Yup. It's open now

Why can't I see other people's footytube teams? I feel like this should be a simple problem you guys can fix? footytube, it would be really nice if you would fix this because it would enhance the footytube experience and the engagement between people in their leagues. Also, it would be really nice if you guys could bring in a some sort of point distribution information about how our players earned their points. It gives people more reason to check their footytube and makes it easier for new players to better understand how footytube works. Currently I check other websites to see how my players did and just check footytube to see how other people in my league did. And it sucks because I can see how many points they earned, but I don't know what players they have!
Malik (Barcelona) 6 months ago
Its not a fix, teams are hidden for a purpose and most probably you will be able to see them after first transfer window.

And if you click on the points your players have accumulated, you will get the points distribution of that player
Malik (Barcelona) 6 months ago
11Neymar11 (Manchester City) 6 months ago
Ahhhhh.... I didn't know that if you placed your mouse over the individual dots on the graphs you would see an explained point distribution. It is a pretty obscure feature that should probably be made a bit more obvious

When is the next transfer window?

Do players get points for euro 16 international qualifiers?
Malik (Barcelona) 6 months ago
No. Its a league season, no points for international qualifiers

Thanks Malik

Is there a way to see the breakdown of how your players got their points?
11Neymar11 (Manchester City) 7 months ago
I created a footytube league and no points have been given to anyone in the league yet. It is weird because in the league I was in last year my points are showing. How can I fix this? It is also confusing because when I'm on my leaderboard it says "World Cup Dreamfooty Leaderboards" on the top of my browser. Please help before everyone starts asking for their money back!
Matt (Footytube Staff) 7 months ago
OK, the leagues/leaderboards were still looking at the world cup game.

You may have to recreate your league but your points etc will count

Hi there, I have a question about making changes to your team: when you make changes to your team before the 23rd of June, will you still get the points for the players who were changed despite not showing in the squad? Thanks in advance!
Jeroen (Barcelona) 9 months ago
The dates at which teams are saved (so starting from then, your new players can gather points) are listed here:


So no, players you purchase now don't get points for your team yet
Ranno (Real Madrid) 9 months ago
Thanks for the reply Jeroen. Yes, your new players can gather points after the save dates.

However, it's possible to save already. In other words, your 'new' players are in the squad (not gathering points yet), but your old players are still the ones gathering points? Including changing the star players. If so, then you won't see the points your old players are gathering.

I hope you understand my explanation

Is there going to be a World Cup Dreamfooty? I hope so!
Matt (Footytube Staff) 10 months ago
Yes there is coming very soon!

Do loan players not get points for their new teams? Sergio Canales is on loan at Real Sociedad, but in his player stats it just shows Valencia results and says he DNP. He has made quite a few appearances for Real Sociedad, so I'm just wondering if I'm missing some points I should have, as it's not clear. Thanks in advance!

Schalke - real madrid 1-6 (points awarded to ronaldo and bale They are bad their lack one assist each.)

Ronaldo score 2 goals and 2 assists to give it benzema. His first assist is disputed on some website (ronaldo has 21 points? Ronaldo should get 26 points)

Bale score 2 goals and 1 assist it gives to ronaldo (Bale 15 points? Bale should have 20 points?) All websites assist his account?

Thank you for watching it

Hello admin. Usually don't watch out for bugs in points there is one I could not help but notice. Daniel Carvajal who was my new recruit a defender for real Madrid played 90 minutes, won the game although They conceded 2 goals and had No cards but he was given only 4 points. Why is this?
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 year ago
Played full game (3pts) + won game (3pts) - two goals conceded (-2 pts)    
CoontaKunte (Manchester United) 1 year ago
Thank you very much Jeroen, the mystery has been solved

Sorry at what time does this transfer window close? Is it already closed?
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 1 year ago
It is supposed to be closed at 8. 00 but it has been closed a bit earlier -_-    Good luck everyone!
DiegoFC (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Yeah I usually always make my transfers at 7 to avoid any last minute injuries. Looks like I just got screwed I only got to change 2 players and then it closed on me so I had to undo my changes

Will the february transfer window start as programmed?
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
I heard that it will go as planned. The only issue is that we don't know what time will the transfer window open at. And that could be crucial because if it's after 7am and we buy players then we risk of losing points as there's lots of games on saturday
Seanf24 (Real Madrid) 1 year ago
Sorry double post by mistake...
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 1 year ago
Will players` price change during the next transfer window?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 1 year ago
There are always price adjustments between each window to stop mass migration tot he same teams
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 1 year ago
Ok thx Matt. I've got a suggestion: I dunno if that's technically doable, but can the system allow teams to be hidden during the transfer window? Or can players have the option to show/hide their team before the window shuts?
That way ppl would't be given the chance to copy (undirectly included) players' new picks
Leifg (Arsenal) 1 year ago
And when will the transfer window open?
