I have read and read and still got no info on how to play matches, is it automatically done or what?  
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
It is a fantasy league, you pick your players who gain points relating to how well they play in their respective leagues and continental Europe.

You do not face off against any other users but rather pick players strategically taking into consideration goals, clean sheets, assists, yellow/red cards etc.

Everything is really explained if you follow this link and click 'Confused....'

@ Ant

Well I wanna ask some questions....

1)After buying players if get some amount left.... Can we utilize it somewhere or not?


2)Well can we post football news in forums from other wibesites by pasting them or giving the links?
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Hey cool,

When you buy new players the money isn't removed from your valuation. The fan valuation can be used in several areas and there are more to come (quizzes etc). For example, if you have 120 million, you can but jerseys and logos worth 120m or less, and it does not remove any fan valuation. Similarly, if you buy new star players, your fan valuation does not go down, instead the money comes from a separate "team budget" based on your fan valuation.

Regarding posting large pieces of news and whatever else from other sites, I would personally prefer if people didn't do this. Theres nothing particularly wrong with it, apart from the fact that you could just post a very short summary and then link to the other news.

For example, in a topic about new owners planning to buy Liverpool, you could write the following

"Yes, I read something about this on ESPN, they say the new owners are billionaires

Link: soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=680935&cc=3436... "

What you shouldn't do is just cut and paste the entire article over here.

Again, that's just my opinion.

Edit: I've been informed by the admins, that if you post large articles or you regularly paste shorter artcles (clearly to influence fan valuation), then they will be removed. As you know, when a post is removed, your fan valuation goes down, so just don't do it.

The proper way to let others know about articles you have read is to simply post a brief synopsis and give YOUR opinon as to why you think it's a good read. Followed by the link.

Also, if you do not include the source of the article, it will be removed

I don't get it.... Are you allowing us to publish such articles or not? Answer it in simple words.... Sorry for the inconvenience but I really don't get it...
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Post a sentence or two from the news article, then post a link to the source article. Don't post the full thing

How do I get myself into a league?
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
See above post ^^
Hammad (Manchester United) 5 years ago
We can have 3 transfers.... Tht means we can sell 3 players and buy 3 players.... Right?
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Not sure, but I think you can sell as many as you like but buy three players. Remember that you need to have at least 11 to make a first team or else your team is disqualified
Hammad (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Thanx bro....

Ant....      Is it possible for me to beat you in dreamfooty lol
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Yes, easily! I'm in 8th place. Far better teams than mine are out there
Ender (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Are we starting our dreamfootyteam over once season is finished and the new season starts? Or are we keeping our team, and even if the prices change during summer, it doesn't affect our budjet?
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
Thinking a bit too far into the future    You will more than likely be picking a brand new team come next summer

What does "Clean Sheet" mean for a GK, a Defender and a MF?
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
If their team doesn't concede a goal
Malosaim (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Thanks Andy for replying.... What about Yellow/Red cards? Are they under consideration too for a clean sheet?
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
How are points calculated?

Goalkeepers & Defenders:
Clean sheet 8pts.
Concede more than 1 goal in a game -1pt per goal.

Midfielders:
Clean sheet 3pts.
Goal assist 5pts.

Attackers:
Goal assist 5pts.

All:
Goal scored 5pts.
Hat trick bonus 5pts.
Yellow card -2pts.
Red card -4pts.
Playing full game 3pts
Coming on as sub 2pts


There you go, your players bank points, in the sense that, if their team keeps a clean sheet but your defender gets sent off, I think you will get +8 for a CS then -4 for a SO, so +4 altogether.

I'll need that verified by Matt/Lee/Vlad or Ben though,
Malosaim (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Thanks Andy.... I really appreciate it!

How do you play this flipping game?  
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
Click Here then click 'Confused?....' link which explains how to play
Arham786 (Manchester United) 5 years ago
I still don't get it
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
The link above explains it all, this is a fantasy football league in which your starting XI earn points relating to how well they play in domestic + continental matches. The scoring is contained in the link above as well as the relevant competitions
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Essentially, you choose your favourite team and subs, and then if they play well in real life, you get points added to your score

Hello everyone Footy friends,
I got one problem with the dreamfooty kits.
How could I change the kit style? Of course I choose those with minimum of 35£ due to my fan valutacion, and it doesn't change. Help?
Another,
How to see the Fan IQ, Top Posters, Most Friends and on and on....
Thanks
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
After editing your kit within your budget, make sure you are clicking 'use this kit' button (see circled below)




The sidebar offering Fan IQ, Top Posters etc. Is still unreleased as DF is still in beta. A newer version of footytube will contain these features

Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
Not 100% sure, but probably 2 weeks
CHELSEA61 ((Footytube Moderator)) 5 years ago
Can somebody tell me what top friends are? Is this a new feature? Or is this a reward for fan valuation?
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
Forum Search is your Friend!

^^ The result for searching 'Top Friends'

The first thread result is Lee's announcement of the new feature
Franboy (Barcelona) 5 years ago
I do not understand how his fan calculates evaluation. Yesterday I had 20 million -> 10 million today? It is possible to lose 10 million a day. I log every day! ! ! I do not really thank you for an explication
Andy (Rangers) 5 years ago
I'll have a wee look but you can make formal fan valuation check requests here.

Fan Valuation is in Beta stages and errors do happen, it will be corrected in a few days, just keep contributing to the community!


-Lee answered this in here so you can ignore my post
CHELSEA61 ((Footytube Moderator)) 5 years ago
Is posting in game stats on your teams progress considered a violation. It happens on almost every forum and I admit I do it sometimes. Does it reduce your fan valuation? And is there a way to remove someone from your friends list?
Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
It's not, but make sure you don't add it to the forum thread title.

In fact, that's given me an idea, I think we should create a Match Spoilers forum, so you can chat about in-game progress.

Removing friends we still haven't done. I'll look into it right now though, expect it to appear on your friends profile tab
CHELSEA61 ((Footytube Moderator)) 5 years ago
Good idea on the spoilers forum. Thanks for your prompt answers. I really appreciate how footytube is maintained by the mods
Seantoon (Newcastle United) 5 years ago
Is it possible to take out a plare you put a star on during the transfer window?
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
You have to sell the player, then you can reassign the star. Buying him back will cost you one of the three available purchase slots for the transfer window
Seantoon (Newcastle United) 5 years ago
Oh okay, so you can sell three players and buy three players.
Sorry but I have another question.... Will footytube change the prices of players during the October 10th transfer window....
For example a player who cost 7 million would cost 9 million? Or visa versa?
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
To be honest I think the plan is that you can sell as many as you like but only buy three new ones. Remember of course you need at least one full squad or else your team is not valid.

I don't think there is any plan to change the values of players for the transfer window. Might not be a bad idea, but I don't think its in the pipeline
Somere (Portmore Utd) 5 years ago
Would it be possible for the admin to set it so that we can use 3 players from a team and not 2
Ant (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Probably not. Everyone has to live by the same rules and the Footytube Gods have decided two from each team is the figure. I'd love to have Torres, Gerrard AND Johnson but no can do
