Interesting comments ET.
Does anyone remember the old Foxsports Fantasy from about a decade ago? IIRC Foxsports used to have their own fantasy games for NRL, AFL, and EPL, which all worked like the current FPL (Fantasy Premier League). It was a simple game, and fun to play. I would call that the T20 version of fantasy.
VSDT and SC have virtually the same level of functional difficulty, and they are much more complex to play than FPL. I haven't tried NRLF since 2016, so I can't compare it's complexity with VSDT/SC. I would be interested to hear people's opinions.
I preferred the foxsports version to any of the current implementations.
The first couple of seasons were brutal though. The had no subs. So if one of your players didn't play, you copped a zero.
4 trades a week (and 6 for origin) meant you could just about keep up, but man it was hard.
Last season or 2 before they dies they at least gave you some subs in case someone didn't play.
The most bizarre thing was when they had coaches, who would give you 5 points if their team won. But they were priced roughly the same as actual players, who would score 40-50 points if they did well. So there was no reason to do anything other than buy the cheapest coach.
