I just realized we are 12 days from the season start and not one peep about Fantasy MLS on the website. I think they are dropping it.

nope. They are even enacting some rule changes. Are we playing?

Idk if it’s people here losing interest or the crappy fantasy product they put out.

I enjoyed the (virtual) company but found the product to be more chore than fun much of the time, so think I am going to pass this season.

Both are true, but they aren't promoting it at all -- and its 12 days from the season start and they don't have anything up and running.

MLS Soccer doesn't have anything up and running yet. If they do, who is interested in playing?

I might be interested!
I don't understand some of the new rules (how is it locked team budgets?) etc. but I might be interested if there're enough people

the locked team budgets means you have lets say $100 to spend every week on your lineup. It doesn’t change due to good or bad player performance.

And player values will change -- it's not clear if you can go over budget if a player rises and you keep them.

I'm in regardless, though.

Oh, I understood that... I just don't understand how it'll work logistically.

think NFL DFS. You play on fan duel. In week 1 you have A $10k budget. Phillip rivers is worth $4k. Rivers has a bad year. By week 10 he’s worth $3k, but you still have the same $10k to spend each week, now you can just spend more if you use Rivers. Same thing for players like Lamar Jackson, who maybe started as $3.5k and costs $7k by the end of the season.

And the 2020 Forums H2H League is created. Code is JR5MM5R6

https://fantasy.mlssoccer.com/#classic/leagues/14575/join/JR5MM5R6

My plan is to do what we have done in the past. $75 buy-in. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd and a midseason Pigeon Cup to give everyone a second chance at winning.

Our custom is to have a meetup where winners spring for beers before the first home playoff game -- and there is a carryover beer kitty from last season that everyone who plays this year can enjoy.

You don't have to be a poster or necessarily a forum member to play. Anyone who is vouched for by a Forum Member can join.

mgarbowski mgarbowski are you willing to be Treasurer again?

I am a little worried we wont have enough players for a decent league -- I figure we need at least 8 to make it worthwhile and the numbers have been dropping. The late release doesn't help.

We need more teams in the league. Right now we have 5 signups. If we don't get 8 by this weekend we will try to start in Round 2.
