Just looked at this. Got a run down / tips on scoring mechanics?
There's a lot more scoring stats than FPL, so midfielders that don't score goals can still be useful.
They follow Supercoach pricing change formula, of just using a 3 game average for price changes. Means if someone scores a goal 2 weeks in a row their price will shoot up massively and then crash again if they don't keep scoring. If you time things right you can get very rich very quickly. 42 trades for 38 game weeks means there is not a lot of room for playing the market though.
If people want to play this seriously I can probably out some BEs up for it, although I'm unlikely to play it seriously myself so no guarantees. but if anyone is keen to do it just send me a PM and I can pass on my spreadsheets and how to get the data
Because its the supercoach engine you can use the VC loophole. AEs can only replace players in the same position, so depending on where your red dots are it is more useful than the supercoach looping rules.
I don't generally purposefully have a deliberate red dot, but if you do, get a keeper who won't play. Then always start your non-playing keeper.
It gives you someone to captain if you want to loop, and your actual keeper will sub in if he gets a positive score, so its also a bit of insurance against his team getting flogged or him getting sent off. Of course if your keeper gets injured/dropped you don't have a replacement and have to burn a trade or play short. You can make your non-playing keeper the backup from the same club to help balance this.
You can also do similar things during the season if you have a red dot and only one sub in that position. Start the red dot and put the riskiest player on the bench. Just means if they get a negative score it won't count, but anything positive will.
