Whole team 👍

That's right, the 200m is for all 4 players (GK, DEF, MID, ATT) but it doesn't mean that you have to spend all 200m, you can leave some for later

Wait 4 players? We don't need 11 players? 

This changes things!

That's right, you're not actually building a team, the 4 players will remain in their respective teams as well

Oooooh. Okay. That's much clearer. Thanks. And we can choose any position now? Not just attackers?

This round is for attackers only (Players that have at least 'dark green' in ST/AMC/AML/AMR)

Just the first pick, so the second player in the house will choose a midfielder?

Each Vibe ’student’ (e.g. you) will draft 4 players across the 4 rounds, with a total budget of £200m. Your House teammate (Stuart) will also draft 4 players across the 4 rounds, he also had another £200m to spend.

In this round, both of you will draft an attacker, and it happens that you have first pick of the eight Vibe ’students’ (1 of 😎 while Stuart had the last pick (8 of 8). Both of you will pick an attacker.

In the next round, all eight Vibe ‘students’ will pick for another position (e.g. perhaps midfield?). @Kun Aguero will strip a different order, but all eight of us will pick a player in that position.

After 4 rounds in total, we will all have 4 players each (so your house has 8 players total). 

E.g. if you draft Mbappe, he costs £149m of your £200m, so you’d only have £51m left for the other 3 positions, plus any spells/potions you’d like to buy later.

E.g. If your teammate Stuart drafts Messi, he costs £33.5m, so Stuart would have … er … £166.5m left for the other 3 positions, plus any spells / potions he wants to buy later.

Does that help? 🙂

Yes, brilliant.

Okay, I will get back soon please, let me check the game for a nice attacker. Is it compulsory we chose a striker?

Escorted by Monsieur Delacour & a team of aurors from the French ministry, this young Raven is in the center of the Paris wizarding district, receiving his highly expensive, completely unique, custom-made wand.

Made with a core of the last remaining legendary thunderbird feather - this elderly retired wandmaker knows his last creation is something truly world class.

Expensive? Unique? World class? It must be …

Spoiler

Mbappe!

Yes. I know I only have £51m for my remaining 3 players. This is a risk which we are hoping (?!) will pay off. 
 

@Titjes - your Slytherin team is next.

That's 3/4 of your budget gone, at this rate, you might be using Guangzhou or Pohang Steelers player soon 😅

What made you choose Pohang out of curiosity? Over teams like Suwon or Jeonbuk

I didn't choose the teams, I just used the database created by @Pete123

I'm gonna add another rule in case someone did pick players from Guangzhou or Pohang that's very likely to be relegated.

  • If the player you picked was relegated, you get a compensation and will be able to pick a replacement from the 3 promoted teams from the lower division. The replacement must have a value either 20m lower or 20m higher than the relegated player.

I'd say it's extremely unlikely for either to be relegated, but if Everton can do it, anyone can!

Two (edit: three!) similar questions @Kun Aguero - others feel free to suggest better options 🙂 

What happens if one of our players (i) gets loaned out, or (ii) gets sold - in both cases, to another team that isn't in this top league? 🤔 Edit - or gets moved to the reserves / B team. Examples in the spoiler. 

Spoiler

Loan Example - Mbappe gets loaned out (!) to a League 2 team (or a team in a European / non-England league) for a season?

  • I'd guess Mbappe would score zero points for that season + I couldn't replace him because he'll return back to his parent club?

Transfer Example - Mbappe gets sold to a League 2 / or non-England team.

  • I guess he'd score zero points until the next transfer window, but then am not sure what would happen.
  • I'd have to buy a replacement, but with what funds - would it be (a) with whatever available funds I have left, or (b) I get given a fixed amount to add onto my available funds - like if a player is relegated, or (c) I get Mbappe's transfer value back into my available funds (e.g. if he was sold for 10m, then I get an extra 10m to replace him).
  • I'm guessing the last option is best (i.e. we're least able to exploit), but would like your feedback.  

[Edited in] Demotion Example - Mbappe gets demoted to the PSG reserves, or Fati gets demoted to the Barcelona B team.

  • I'd guess he'd only score points for any league games he'd played in for the senior side (not the reserves nor B team).
  • Then am not sure if (a) we'd have to just keep him until he's promoted back / sold / retires ... or (b) if we get to replace him with the same three funding options suggested in the transfer example above.

In case of a loan to a club not in 1st division, the player won't be included in the leaderboard during his loan period and will contribute 0 house points.

In case of transfer to a club not in 1st division, you will get a compensation equivalent to the in-game transfer fee of that player, and you can get a replacement for him.

In case of demotion, since it's quite difficult to keep track of demotion, I'll just ignore that and count whatever is shown in his player stats page. That means if your player is demoted and the season target is goals/assists related, whatever number of league goals/assists shown in his stats page will still contribute to the leaderboard (won't be too many I guess). In case of season targets related to team goals conceded, even if he's in reserve team, the goals conceded by first team will still contribute to the leaderboard.

Cool - makes sense 👍 edit - does that demotion example include B teams as well as reserve teams? 

One (last?) question - is it possible for house-mates (e.g. Broodje and I) to seamlessly transfer funds between us? E.g. if later, his player retires and he's got no funds left, can I transfer him my remaining 5m for example. Or even in the draft right now, can Broodje transfer me 0.5m from his funds for example. Am wondering just how much of a 'team' our finances would be 🙂

Isn't that the same thing?

I'll say no, player transfers are possible but not funds, but there may be some potions/spells available for that.

Hogwarts: Battle of the Houses

“Fans and alumni are excited to see each houses’ 1st round picks of attackers … with some huge surprises + shocks!” 
 

Drafted Player List:

Spoiler

Gryffindor 
@LordArezo + @Gbuyiro Samuel

  • Attack = Fati (48.5m) + Lukaku 🏆 (£98m)

Slytherin 
@Titjes + @vizardjr

  • Attack = L. Martínez (99m) + Benzema (62M)

Ravenclaw 
@broodje kip + @DanEnglish

  • Attack = Mbappe (149m) + Marega 🛡 (9m)

Hufflepuff 
@hhooo+ @StuartM

  • Attack = Vlahovic (65m) + Alvarez ⁉️(42m) 

 
Expert Analysis

“While the Daily Prophet is known for its accurate + unbiased reporting (!) - just occasionally our journalists share their own personal opinions…”

Spoiler

🏆 Best Pick

  • Probably the top league’s best all-round target man - Gryffindor’s £98m Lukaku gives guaranteed goals!

🛡 Cheapest Bargain

  • A surprise pick, @broodje kip selected bargain attacker Marega for just £9m!

⁉️ Biggest Risk

  • @StuartM’s choice of Alvarez seems great. Affordable, scores goals, great player. The risk is about what happens after season 1, when he returns back from loan to his parent club Man City? Will he play games + score goals ever again?!
