ICF IPL 2019 Fantasy League

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, we will be playing the Fantasy League at the official IPL site this year. I considered other sites like Cricketweb but they were even more useless than this competition. There are a lot of changes this year with Dream 11 replacing Fandromeda for hosting the competition.

 

With the change in hosting there are significant changes to the rules as well. There will no longer be a requirement to change teams before every match, instead subs/trading of players should be done for a group of 8 matches or so together. Some of the key things to note are:

 

  • Matches are separated into rounds with each round having 8 matches in league stage and all Playoffs considered as one final round
  • Subs/Trades of players should be done before the start of 1st match of each round and the trades will be applicable for all the 8 matches in league stage
  • 5 Subs/Trades are allowed per round
  • You have to select a Captain and Vice-Captain with the Captain earning Double points and Vice-Captain earning 1.5x points

 

I will try to add some more pointers here, but please go through the full Rules and Points System in the website.

 

Details of joining below:

 

Once team is created and you have joined, please post the team name here. Looking forward to see lots of you guys join, given especially that this time the competition wouldn’t require changes every match like previous years :nice:

The one good thing though is people don't have to invest a lot of time this time as you can't make changes for every match.

Yes, once the first match of a round starts you cannot make any changes for that round. Whatever changes you do will be applicable from the next round only.

Eg. Round 1 - Match 1 to 8

Round 2 - Match 9 to 16

Round 3 - Match 17 to 24

........etc......

Changes made before start of match 1 will be applicable for first round. Any further changes made will only be applicable from match 9 (Round 2)

 

The 5 subs/ trades are the number of changes you can make before each round. Makes more sense?

I see this time they have OTP to login each time. I guess it's not for folks who are outside India w/o a India simm card

 

Any ways around it? Thanks 

I am in the UK and able to login without issues. I am using my Gmail account to login. I think if you signup from scratch they are asking for an India mobile number, so use an existing gmail account if you have one.

I just used the option of logging through my Gmail account and it is fine. I am outside India as well. Try to find it, if not I will try to screenshot where you can login by Gmail.

Joined so you can forget about winning :-)

Players are costly. Tough to put together a decent XI which are sure starters.

same issue. couldn't get a team in. been down since after the toss

I had luckily made a team yesterday itself and set captains as well. Just wanted to fine tune one or 2 changes but it just was a mess having tried in 3 browsers but without any way to figure out where to click to make changes. Hope the team I made yesterday is saved. Anyways the cricinfo FL or cricket web were much better than this.

Guys, I have 209 points so far. I then joined my private leaderboard in between round 1 because ghe site was down couldn't join earlier. 

 

Now in the leaderboard my rank is coming as - and points also as -

Why is this so? Is my points not counted because I joined leaderboard late?

Not sure how it works, it could be that your ranking is showed after a game or two. Let's wait and see.

 

What's your Team Name?
