  • Hooley Dooley, some pretty big changes. Hope FanHub tell us all the rules before the season starts as that will impact our team choices.

    • I think they have told us the rules – well, all that they need to – in the podcast. People will argue that the pricing formula should be spelled out, but Virtual Sports have never publicly released this and it was only ever in the public domain by people reverse engineering the formula.

      Keeping it pretty simple, a higher weighting (most likely as a %) will be on more recent games whereas the old formula for DT has equal weighting on the last three matches. To be honest, it’s not going to make a huge difference, but the price changes from their first* game will. No longer will we have two games to wait on players.

  • Great listen but Dom Tyson was subbed out in the 3rd quarter boys, still high on the list!

    • Haha! CALVIN, you had one job! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see much of the match… we were busy entertaining our new piggy friend.

  • Price change stuff was very intriguing, trying to get my head around how its gonna impact things.
