Fantasy suggestion

So I see a lot of people were not happy with Malta fantasy (me included) and I thought of this solution for next season. I'm not sure if it can be done or if it is a good idea at all but this is used on a football fantasy I play and it works. Basically, just need to create a 5 player stand-in bench. And when we are buying our team, we can also choose a player from the tournament to replace him. Of course it must have restrictions (stand in must be cheaper than the chosen player for the team, cannot be from the same team, role and boosters automatically goes to stand in and things like that). For example: I chose Deko and jemi for the pinnacle ongoing fantasy. For Deko the stand in could be any player who cost less than or exactly 242,000 and cannot be from 1 win. For Jemi, the stand in could be anyone who cost less than or exactly 160,000 and cannot be from havu. If the team decides to not play the tournament or the player is out for any reason and do not play the match (internet issues, illness or anything that keeps him out of the server for the entire match), the stand in can automatically goes into the team for that round or tournament. As I said, not sure if it can be done but since there is a lot of money involved for the winner, it would be cool to add this feature. And would be additional fun to put up a team together for all events

They are fun tournaments and I'm pretty sure the organizers support the fantasy game to make it financially viable

Yeah, the fantasy adds so much to the experience of watching counter strike. Unfortunately I'm on a bad luck streak with teams I choose dropping from tournaments. I have only 148 points for the season and Malta vibes will bury me deeper in the ranking thanks to NGL bots

Your team is probably similar to mine...I have hunter, jackz, fallen, Stan and refrezh playing. But I'm sucking on boosters so far

It is a nice team, I preferred hunter so that I could have a main AWP on the team with fallen...but overall Niko is much better

Yeah i didnt know what to do since i didnt have an awper but i just chose this team because there was no ''bad'' players who could get like 0.60 rating in a game, Grim and Jackz can easily have 1 pop off game and get like 30 points

Indeed. I hope G2 just crushes mad lions

I really wish they'd include a legacy option for the old fantasy UI. The current one is just painful to deal with. Only good part about it has been the booster stats. The rest of it has just been clunky and unfortunate. I also agree with the benching. I ended up with players from NLG which we all know are not going to win. Just ends up being a complete waste of time.

They lost first match, losing fpx players for this ended my fantasy run before it even started for this tournament
2021-10-14 23:16
Interesting idea. I like the thought of having your main 5 players and 1 sub. Then round by round you can sub in/out 1 player, either due to teams dropping out. Or if its swiss format and you have 2 players who have to play eachother, you could sub 1 out. Obviously youd only get points for the 5 players in your current team, not the sub on the bench.

Like this: 1. Pick 5 players as usual. 2. Then you are allowed, lets say 200k extra AFTER you confirmed your 5 picks for a 6th player if anything happens with X player in your original fantasy team and the fantasy auto-switches the player that is benched/sick etc etc and the 6th player gets added to the fantasy team. This would be very good.

I suggested individual stand ins to make up for the price. It would suck to lose s1mple and end up with Qikert in his place for example. And when the whole team give up a tournament, you will still end up with one player missing

This would be the best possible solution for fantasy as it's so annoying to get players from way worse teams than you selected. For example I got FPX players replaced with NLG players in malta vibes fantasy. I also think that five individual substitutes (requiring different team and the same price or lower) would be the correct way to do this.

Yep, I do not see a flaw with this system if done correctly

Actually now I realised that if you pick the cheapest player in the fantasy, you wouldn't be able to pick a player cheaper than him.

Yeah but picking the cheapest of the cheapest, you kinda expect to get negative points...so him not playing can be a bonus lol

You have 1,000,000 to put a team of five players. After picking up all five you need to choose roles and boosters for them. Points are based on rating and role/boosters triggers. Pretty s1mple stuff
