Anyone know of any fantasy league for the upcoming World Cup? Sadly Borisas stopped running TheSportcity.net site a few years ago.

Lithuanian krepsinis.net will be running it, actually already are. Boris was running it before he moved to sportcity, but since he was gone, the level of the game in krepsinis.net has dropped, I mean don't be surprised if some player will be missing or some prices looks ridiculous. Already now, I can see some marvellous choices for lowest 1k price :) Also lately there was no limits for positions in EL, LKL managers, you could pick even 12 centers i.e. But still better than nothing, so I'll try to built the team

Is there any fantasy for upcoming WC?
On ACB.com they likely cancelled it this year. :/
But if I'm not wrong, FIBA also used to release fantasy games for their big competitions?
Thanks.

I am also in, if there is a legit option. I saw something on Krepsinis.net but it's in Lithuanian. I understand most of it though.

I don't think non-Lithunians are allowed to join there.
As far as I know, FIBA official one and ACB (KIA Super Manager) were open worldwide.

I managed to join (translating the page in English to find my way) but it's a bit confusing. I haven't yet made a team.

I just registered. You can create a team, pick players. They give you 100k to make a team. Giannis costs 25k :D Jokic 21k :D Bogdanovic 20k. These are ridiculous prices for FIBA competition :D

My favorite has to be Melih Mahmutoglou for 13k :D

My favourite one is Ra Guna.
Back in their best days, the manager there used to be reall good. Now some prices are like joke, but it's still fun to play. Only the prizes for winners ar even more funny than player prices, but still most of the guys play just for fun, not for the prize :D

Is it the same game system as in common fantasy?
Wondering if it's worth joining.

Any news from FIBA?
They used to release official WC fantasy on the website so far, didn't they?

You can't find it cuz it doesn't exist. ;) At least not yet.
Im afraid that there are small chances to see them releasing it this year.
If they don't care for the competition itself, why would they care for fantasy game? :) It makes sense, doesn't it?

Can you explain game rules in short please?
I don't get part with 100 subs and another 20 subs after each matchaday.

If it didn't change from previous champs. You get 100 subs till start of 1st round, you can use as many as you want, but they all be gone right after and then for every other round you'll get 20 each time no matter how much you used before

So by sub they actually consider every player added while creating team? E.g. you add player, then you remove him to add new one at same spot one and they consider that as 2 subs, right?
Quite unnecessary feature imo but ok. It could be a problem between rounds in case when you have no idea what to do with your team and you would like to try different combinations. :)
Does 20 subs for every round mean that we are basically allowed to change entire team (all 12 players)?
Thanks.

Yes, if you buy and sell the same player it's 2 subs out already. Now I was creating a team, had 12 players, but then changed my mind, sold one player, added another and have 86 transactions left

Basically yeah, but I wouldn't bet now that there'll be exactly 20. At times they are just too lazy to change the rules, so it might be just 12. If I'm not wrong that was the case in Olympics, but there were only 12 teams, so for bigger number of teams they usually allows more changes

Strange how the player's positions translate into soccer/football positions.

One more question.
Is it allowed to add unlimited number of players from same position?
In game FAQ it says 5 players max per position but there's no any warning if I choose e.g. 7 centers.

This FAQ is old, as I wrote, they are too lazy to make corrections :) Typical krepsinis.net. You can have as many as you want, I have 7 forwards i.e. There were such 5 players per position restrictions before, then for some reason it was gone, maybe some technical issues, so it stayed like that

Apparently there is also interesting way of players price rise/fall calculation. From 1000 to 17000 in a single round. :D :D

Yeah. But that one is for years :) It's an easy and primitive one, at first its: (initial price + rkg pts)/2. Of course you mean Guna Ra, he is in every third team according to market stats :) So 1000+33(000)/2 = 17k, in next round it will be +pts from that game and divided by 3 and etc. I don't know why, but for some reason I like this one, maybe cause I get used to it since 2004 :)

I did not realize Guna Ra is actually Ricardo Ratliffe. Oh well. Cant seem to find an actual leaderboard. See it has my own ranking which is 2nd (just kidding).

Is there an option to undo team changes? Or it's over once they're made (that would be stupid)?

Press on "Dalyviai" (participants), then under "Taskai" (points) there is a line with two squares on both sides, drag the left one a bit to the right and you'll see it

It's over. You better do them on paper or on excel like I do and then on actual manager

Thanks. Is that you in 15th? You will have to do better in order to beat Condoms.com

If I add player that was in my roster already that is also considered as sub, right?

Ha :D No, I'm in top40, but a bit lower, so there's not much of a difference, I still have to do better to beat condoms.com :)

You mean selling and adding again? Yes, it's 2 subs out

What an idiot I am. I didn't realize that they actually count selling player at one spot as 1 sub and buying another one at the same spot as 2 subs. ;) :mad: Pretty stupid. I ended up with few empty spots on roster. Time to quit.
Good luck to all of you who continue playing.
