I'm a little later on this than I had hoped, but whatcha gonna do? Nonetheless, the beta of Fantasy League 2.0 is now open and I ask you all to please sign-up or login and give it a test drive.
Redline Derby Racing Fantasy League 2.0 beta
If you played in the Fantasy League last season, your same login and password will work, you don't have to sign-up again. If you're new, please register for a new account.
Please read through the How to Play page to get the basics on how the game works and plays. I will be expanding the rules and FAQ as the beta progresses and new season starts. At this point I'm still not sure what needs to be outlined and what doesn't, so right now it's the essentials.
I have scheduled the first FAKE beta tournament for next Wednesday. Again, it's fake - I will not be racing any real cars. All results will be random and points earned during the beta will NOT be carried into the season.
The tournament is scheduled for Wednesday because each tournament has THREE PARTS or stages and the tournament opens on this Friday (7/9).
1. Car entry - This is the period when players can enter a car into the tournament. First 16 cars only.
2. Bracket picking - At this point car entry is closed and the tournament is seeded. Players can then submit their brackets for tournament winners. You earn points for each pick you have correct.
3. The race - The last stage is the race itself. Results will be submitted and points rewarded.
There are also achievements as previously mentioned. Right now there is only one achievement, that being to submit a bracket. When you do so, you should get the trophy and extra points added to your score.
I've done a lot of testing myself for this game, but obviously THERE WILL BE BUGS and other problems I didn't find or experience. I ask you to PLEASE REPORT ANY PROBLEMS here in the forum on this thread. Anything that you find as not working, working weird, or just any major confusion, please report.
I'm hoping this beta period can be short, hopefully through next week and that's it. I'm as anxious to get racing as you are.
Thanks for all the support for this and for all the suggestions while I was building v2.0 - I think you'll find a lot of fun things in this version, and it should be open to a lot more people so the competition could be fierce.
