Oh what? SHIT had no idea.
It's in the notes at the start of this page, it's all very confusing if you don't remember all the rules from previous years...
Yeah, not going too great. Today was fine tho, Subasic, Boateng and Kroos came through with solid sixes. But all of my forwards failed during matchday 1. At least I forgot to switch captain from Rodriguez to Müller.
I think I will stick with Rodriguez, as I'm not too confident in anyone in my team yet to play scoring more than six points.
Right, about the substitutions again. I noticed some your teams have left people just sitting on the bench even though their teams are playing. And some of you have moved people that have scored (a reasonable amount of) points to the bench. This is not how you should do it, people on the bench will not contribute their points to the Matchday totals. This might be due to y'all lack of interest in tweaking, but I'll still re-iterate.
As a practical example of subs, the above has been my lineup from the start. I left the guys that play last on the bench, and I'll sub them in only right before they play IF needed. For example, Subasic scored 6 points, so I probably won't sub Rui Patricio in, because a goalie scoring more than 6 points is rare enough, and just one conceded goal would take him down to 2 points.
However, I will for sure sub out some of my 2-point players for Alaba, Joao Mario and possibly Renato Sanchez, although I'm not sure if he'll play at all. (This last sub would be a gamble, because then I could get 0 points instead of 2 from a player)
Also note that formations don't matter with manual subs (except for the goalkeeper), you can sub in a midfielder for a defender for example.
