    Watford to win this now, I can just feel it.

    50K will be a great finish! I'm too far off a top 100k finish now, I think.

    Bench Boost went horribly wrong for me. I don't know what the average is as I haven't checked, but I will probably be a bit behind.

    You just made it inside the top 50k, then! Which also makes you our league winner! Congratulations! =D>

    I'll make a proper league winner update tomorrow, along with the league standings and gameweek winner update. Might take a while for FPL to update the game!

    Cheers for a few minutes I was genuinely devastated lol So happy I made top 50K it's something to build from, I made a lot of mistakes since restart which I hope to learn from, in fact since restart I was making the errors I made last season.

    Congrats to everyone it's been a fun season, in a month FPL will be up and running again prior to new season.

    I know the feeling, haha! It's strange what this game can do to us. I've just not been able to pick the right players after the restart; not playing the Bench Boost earlier was also something that really had a negative impact on my rank. I don't know what I've learned from this season really, other than to not second guess my initial transfer plans. So many times this season have I planned transfers, only to go through with other moves instead.

    It's been a really fun season, and an unusual one too (for obvious reasons)! I hope they don't take to long to take the game down and up again. I'd hate it if we got less time to tinker with our gameweek 1 teams.

    I learned that when playing safe and not taking hits and trusting my gut I did well, soon as I started making risky moves and taking hits it all fell apart lol

    :-S Just occurred to me I don't think people with bench boosts points have been accounted for yet, I may not finish in top 50K

    Edited: it appears they have my final score is 49,419 which is actually better :))

    It's definitely a balance; you want to play safe as much as possible, trusting your gut feeling along the way. At some point though, if you're chasing, you find yourself in a situation where you have to take risks – maybe captaining someone against your gut feeling, taking punts on players and just hope for the best. That's definitely the way I had to approach these final gameweeks!

    Yes, the LiveFPL calculations should take into account chips played. It's not always you see ranks before auto subs, but it shouldn't take long after a gameweek until you do.

    That's it then! The 2019-20 season is over! It's been quite the season for obvious reasons, but we got there in the end. I hope we've all had great fun playing Fantasy football, and that you will be ready for another season of transfers, hits, chips and captaincies when the Premier League season starts up again in September!

    That leaves us with our final gameweek winner update, and our overall league winner! First, our gameweek 38+ winner was AFC Fritzson, finishing strong with 88 points. Congratulations! =D>

    1ApUmBS.jpg

    And our overall 2019-20 winner is Team Extreme, finishing the season with 2300 points in total, and an overall rank of 49 419! Impressive! =D>

    Continuing with a separate post:
    Now that the season is over, the game will eventually be taken down, before relaunching in time for the next season. Given the short time before the end of this season and the next, I expect the game will be up and running in maybe 3-4 weeks. I'll post any major updates here on the thread – as well as giving a heads up at the Back of the net tread when the game is available again.

    When the game is available, I will also renew our league, so if everything works fine, you should automatically be part of the league once you register your teams for the next season. That will require using the same email address you use for your current teams. Anyway, I'll post any league details when that time comes.
    ________

    Also, if you have any feedback and suggestions for this thread, that will be great! I hope to post updates after each gameweek, with league table standings and gameweek winners. I also think it might be an idea to include a monthly winner as well, if the function of checking gameweek scores for each month is possible when the game relaunches.

    It is! When making the template for those banners last year, I found a bunch of old 70's football photos, and used three of them. This one is George Best celebrating, but I don't know who he celebrated scoring against though.

    Interesting read I already know most of my team for next season already, there is undoubtedly an obvious template already. I wonder how early we will get the actual fixtures... not checked when writing this.

    Haven't got that far yet, but there are a few players I'm likely to target for my gameweek 1 team, price depending.

    The price rises and drops will be interesting, Greenwood I expect a considerable jump perhaps also Nketiah. Surely the likes of Mané and Salah can't go any higher, I expect KDB to increase slightly and Aguero to drop.

    Very much so! What price do you expect Greenwood will be? 6.0?

    I expect Salah will keep his price (he's expensive enough already!), and Mané might match that price, or be 0.5 less. De Bruyne will probably go up in price (1.0 more, maybe?), and Agüero might drop a bit, I'd think. As for Nketiah, I expect a small price rise up to 5.0; we don't know yet how his role will be in the team.

    Greenwood probably around that price bracket, how Ings was though I expect Ings to have a price rise next season. Lord Lundstram will probably have no ownership as he will rise and be classed as a midfield lol

    Please do! I'll have all the banners saved anyway, but having an own copy doesn't hurt, haha!

    Interesting read I already know most of my team for next season already, there is undoubtedly an obvious template already. I wonder how early we will get the actual fixtures... not checked when writing this.

    Haven't got that far yet, but there are a few players I'm likely to target for my gameweek 1 team, price depending.

    The price rises and drops will be interesting, Greenwood I expect a considerable jump perhaps also Nketiah. Surely the likes of Mané and Salah can't go any higher, I expect KDB to increase slightly and Aguero to drop.

    Very much so! What price do you expect Greenwood will be? 6.0?

    I expect Salah will keep his price (he's expensive enough already!), and Mané might match that price, or be 0.5 less. De Bruyne will probably go up in price (1.0 more, maybe?), and Agüero might drop a bit, I'd think. As for Nketiah, I expect a small price rise up to 5.0; we don't know yet how his role will be in the team.

    Greenwood probably around that price bracket, how Ings was though I expect Ings to have a price rise next season. Lord Lundstram will probably have no ownership as he will rise and be classed as a midfield lol

    Could we see Ings as expensive as 8.0-9.0, perhaps? In the Norwegian Eliteserien Fantasy they are certainly not afraid of pushing the prices up to make the game more challenging.

    Hah, no! I expect many will stay clear of Lundstram next season. He has sometimes been a sub for Berge as well, so we can't even be 100% sure how much he will play.

    Congratulations to Team Extreme!

    I am glad I managed a mad dash in the final few gameweeks to finish in the top 10.

    Well played, @DaltonCraig007! Hope you will be playing next season as well! :-)
    Congratulations to AFC Fritzson for winning this GW.

    @Torgeirtrap on my winners banner, who is the player forefront, it looks like George Best?

    It is a balancing act with price changes, admittedly this was only my second season. FPL surely must ensure that managers can still field a good number of premium assets. City and United assets will be problematic early on due to potentially both getting to European finals, most will want Manchester assets though potentially missing the first two GW's would mean alot of adjustments early on, even hitting a early Wildcard perhaps.

    I think FPL will make it difficult for us, but not more so that you are able to still have two premium assets in the gameweek 1 squad. As always, you need to balance that with cheaper players.

    Yes, I imagine there will be many early wildcards. The good thing about that though, is that you don't have to worry about picking any of those players for your gameweek 1 team, and can adjust after the finals are played. If the structure is right, you can maybe even sort out a decent post-finals team with free transfers (though that might be difficult with the team value at the start of the season).
