Hello Matt, may I know the reason why I'm not given the prize money for finishing 18th in the Worldcup dreamfooty? Is it just me or the whole Dreamfooty thing is a sham? :/
Jeroen (Barcelona) 6 days ago
It's definitely not a sham mate. I've received my moneys from last year's DF WC and the seasonal DF too, and the seasons before I only ever didn't get my winnings once because I simply forgot I won something being 21st. Just react in time when Matt announces he'll be handing out the money to the winners. If you're only reacting for the first time now (so basically three months late), it's obvious he's forgotten you. If you did react in time, it's just Matt being forgetful. Remember that this website and dreamfooty especially are not the only things in the lives of the admins, and Matt is the only one who has to sort out all the crap too. (though a little more attention to the website would benefit all)

Nope, this is not the first time I'm asking. When Matt started this thread like 3 months ago - 'Unclaimed Dreamfooty Prizes', asking winners to send their details in mail, I sent a mail, posted in the thread, posted in his wall but absolutely no response. Maybe he is too forgetful, that he even forgot the thread asking for the details? No idea...

I thought only the guy who comes first gets the money. Am I mistaken?
Jeroen (Barcelona) Yesterday
Oh, yeah, if you're talking about the WC dreamfooty (I didn't catch that); I ran away with all the dough there. There was only one winner, me in this case, the rest didn't get anything. In the seasonal DF, there are 20 possible winners
Rockerr (Liverpool) 20 hours ago
Yes I'm talking about WC dreamfooty and Oh.... I dint know that WC DF has only one winner

Why does the transfer lineup update keep changing from Tuesday to Saturday (continually extending the time to make transfers)? Is this a new change to how footytube works? This confusion has put me at a disadvantage because I didn't know you could make changes again on this Tuesday and now again before Saturday! I planned my transfers for the longterm, when I could have made transfers based on the games between Tuesday and Saturday and then change my team again before Saturday
Hittash (Liverpool) 3 weeks ago
I don't know why? Even I thought its closed by Saturday and I picked my final squad but the its extended
RealFan (Real Madrid) 3 weeks ago
I need the window to close in order to open my emergency transfer window! Come on Matt, I need to make changes before champions league
JulioFC (Inter Milan) 3 weeks ago
Isn't the transfer suppose to be closed already?  
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
It`s still open apparently. I`m missing 14pts from my star defender now.... Seriously, does anybody know when it`ll be closed?
Zhenwei (Manchester United) 3 weeks ago
Should be closed by now. Rollback? I'm not sure if I'm missing any points cos I don't really keep track. How do you keep track?
Malik (Barcelona) 3 weeks ago
@zlatan, you must have lost pts for something else, how can open window can loss you points?
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
Dunno man.... Basically I didn`t get the double points from the star defender. Maybe that`s one of those weird bugs and stuff
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 weeks ago
The transfer window did stick open a little, this would not result in any lost points. Can you double check that your defender is saved as your star defender, if he is give me the name and ill check it out for you
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 weeks ago
Thanks for your reply, I have Bonucci as my star defender so far this season
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 2 weeks ago
Hi Matt, I`m not sure if you have verified last weekend`s missing points issue yet, but whenever you have time to check it out please let me know. That`d be appreciated

Cjayzz (Real Madrid) 3 weeks ago
Why can't I make a final signing.... I have made 3 but it doesn't let me do the 4th
Rubin (Inter Milan) 3 weeks ago
Maybe you sold and bought a player that was in your team already?
ElGaucho (AC Milan) 4 weeks ago
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) 4 weeks 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 :/
Hittash (Liverpool) 4 weeks ago
Add me I miss almost 65- 70 Points dude...
Rubin (Inter Milan) 4 weeks 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) 3 weeks 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) 3 weeks 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.

Good LUCK TO ALL !
Malik (Barcelona) 3 weeks 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) 3 weeks 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?

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) 1 month 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) 1 month ago
11Neymar11 (Manchester City) 1 month 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) 1 month 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) 2 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) 2 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
Ranno (Real Madrid) 4 months ago
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) 4 months ago
The dates at which teams are saved (so starting from then, your new players can gather points) are listed here:


Link: www.footytube.com/forums/dreamfooty-fantasy-league...

So no, players you purchase now don't get points for your team yet
Ranno (Real Madrid) 4 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
Leifg (Arsenal) 5 months ago
Is there going to be a World Cup Dreamfooty? I hope so!
Matt (Footytube Staff) 5 months ago
Yes there is coming very soon!
Leifg (Arsenal) 4 months ago
Nice!
