    Mzungu is currently spelt with a capital Z in Fantasy Warnie (MZungu); should let someone know so they can fix that up!

      Ta. I’ll pass those one. Player imaging is a hard one as not all clubs have had new shots taken.

        And Watson has no picture. There has to be a hipster barista picture of him somewhere they can utilise….. Big issues being covered early..

          January 24, 2017 at 9:41 am

          Hahaha… yes! Not sure what happened there. They were sucking out 2015 pics for the banned Bombers.

          Although, how much better are the grey silhouettes rather than the harsh black ones. One of my suggestions that went through! ;) Design genius.

    Will being able to remove Round 9 as a game to play in leagues become an option? Isnt at the moment.

      January 24, 2017 at 6:48 am

      I think it’s staying as is. Sorry.

    Woukdve liked greater prize money for the weekly winner

    And disapoointed to see the Eliminator go (or was that gone previousily?)

    • Warnie


      January 24, 2017 at 6:49 am

      Weekly prizes have been that for the last couple of seasons and unfortunately, there hasn’t been an Eliminator comp for the last three seasons.

    Is Ethan Hughes’ price a mistake? Looks completely out of place at 477k

    • Warnie


      January 24, 2017 at 11:25 am

      Players who received discounts (under 10 games played in 2016) had their % discount applied to the higher of the last two years averages to avoid ridiculously low pricing – as seen in other formats. Hughes was an anomaly… however, in my opinion, better to stick with a formula and being too high than doing arbitrary pricing that got people complaining last year.

      Fiorini is one that will continue to pop up in conversation. Again, we’ve stuck to the formula to keep people happy (I have seen the same same ones sooking again!! haha)… but he does get a 24% discount on his 2016 average of 111.5. The gripe should be with him for dominating so hard in the last game!!

        January 24, 2017 at 11:53 am

        Cheers, makes sense! Not that anyone would realistically be picking Hughes anyway!

    • Warnie


      January 24, 2017 at 11:34 am

      Soon… no set date yet because we don’t know it (app store process among other things).

      • ces

        January 24, 2017 at 11:36 am

    Is anyone else having difficulty swapping their profile photo from last year to a new one? Every time I upload a new image and click update, it never saves. Not a biggie, but it’s annoying.

      Yes, me too.

      I think this is a known issue. I was able to change mine today, though.

    Hey there Warnie,

    Probably too late for this season, but could you pass on a suggestions to the game devs that we be given the option on how to rank teams on the same points on classic/draft league ladders? Currently its worked out by points for/against % (like the AFL ladder), but it would be great to have the option to rank teams by “Points For” purely. It rewards the best team, and in Fantasy (unlike in the real game) the opposition does not affect your own point scoring.

    Cheers mate.

    • barkhammer

      January 24, 2017 at 4:47 pm

      100% agree.

      Makes absolutely no sense to have % as the tiebreaker when you have no ability to affect your opponents score.

    • Warnie


      January 24, 2017 at 5:06 pm

      I put that to them a couple of years ago… no dice. Hoping to get some suggestions rolling through earlier this year so that they can be included in the 2018 roadmap. DT Talk community will definitely have a say!
