November TOTM



  • Do any of you guys have a screen shot or know where I can easily obtain the top ten from each position for previous TOTM please



  • @Dan-The-Man Persevere with it. If it contradicts their own terms they will likely, at some point, back down. Perhaps when you tell them you will escalate the issue further.



  • @Three-lions Not a screenshot but here's the YouTube link.

    Yes - they released in on YouTube :-D



  • @NewUser65276 why does it confuse you so much cuadrado was a defender at point of payment, and therefore should have won top defender @10p a share, so its a terrible decision by football index



  • @AT10 thanks for taking the time ... I have this link already ...... it was the top 10 from each position I was attempting to keep a track of.

    I’m sure there are far more efficient methods and online info but I really don’t have the time all this takes,

    This top ten graphic I have posted, which is currently on the website showing November, is perfectly simple for someone like myself who just wants to keep tabs on usual suspects in the top ten over the months.



  • FI really don't help themselves. They clearly stated what they would do in situations like this and they haven't done it, so not sure why people are confused why others are annoyed and are questioning the decision.

    Really is poor that they've encountered this scenario and immediately taken the "actually we're not going to do what we said we'd do" approach, its painful to try and understand FI at times.

    I honestly don't understand their logic.

    There's so few Cuadrado holders prior to the 21st, it wouldn't cost them an arm and a leg to pay them the 9p per share owed (he was paid 1p for being a mid) and let's face it, the money gets pumped straight back in anyway.

    They owe me just shy of £80, so far, there's been a bunch of emails back and forth, it's gone from me contacting the Live Chat guy, to another team member and now it's escalated to the complaints team, they'll have spent £80 in staff wages by the time they've paid me.

    Exactly. They'll end up issuing the correct payouts eventually but now with the added customer support headache and loads of unnecessary bad feeling for users they've tried to ignore.

    Should say I'm not going to receive any TOTM payments as it stands or if there are any corrections, I just find it baffling how they're fucking up something quite simple, and are ignoring their very own previously stated process.



  • @Rocky-Raccoon

    Their customer service team have even acknowledged that scenario too.

    "We appreciated that we had detailed this scenario previously"

    It's outright bizarre.



  • @Three-lions Apologies, misunderstood. You can find all the final standings inc top 10 on the previous TOTM threads;

    Hopefully if I've done it right the links should open straight to final standings.



  • @AT10 nice one 👍

    Thought that when I joined 6 months ago that FI would be a simple investment with a little fantasy football fun ....... how wrong was I ....... it’s like a fucking second job now

    Appreciate your time and help 👊



  • They made the right decision on Cuadrado.



  • @Mere-Mortal

    Explain that to me.

    How can it be the right decision, to change the rules at the finish line?

    If you held 1500 shares in Reece James, would you consider it to be fair that someone that's played the majority of the month as a midfielder was changed at the last moment and placed in the 10p defender slot?

    That's your answer!

    Team of the month is new and this scenario is rare, so it's a pretty sensible decision.

    Yes, of course because that was the rules listed on the TOTW website and still is by the way.

    Screen Shot 2020-12-03 at 19.29.53.png

    This exact scenario is fully detailed on the website, so we all knew exactly where we stood if a player changed position.

    If I were a Reece James holder, would I dislike the timing? Of course, just like I disliked when Cuadrado finished the night as the top PB winner a couple of weeks back, only to wake up the next day and see that Bruno had been classed as the winner...

    But that was the rules of the game.

    How would you like it if your man was about to win PB and they changed the Matrix at 11pm resulting in someone else taking over him?



  • @Mere-Mortal ffs sake don't get him started again.



  • @o_O

    His argument is... it would have been unfair to play by the rules, so instead, we should change the rules at the finish line to suit his players.

    It's just bollox.



  • @Dan-The-Man everybody can see why they did it but you just shout and scream all the time.

    TOTM is a new feature so the rules are evolving. If the player plays almost the entire month in one position, it makes less sense to change them right at the end, than it does to leave them where they are, and is unfair to the people holding the defenders, irrespective of what the rules say.

    Just let someone else have a different opinion for once.

    Its true they maybe should have paid out both positions, to be fair, but they didn't, so tough tits.



  • @o_O said in November TOTM:

    The reason we have pre-defined rules in gambling is so that we don't end up in a situation where the winners are picked based on the opinions/whims of the gambling operator.

    In this case, there's a black and white rule, there's no opinion to be had. The fact is, by the rules Cuadrado holders should have been paid out.

    Plenty of us have been openly cheated by this one time exception of the rule, so I just find it completely strange that people would side with such an obviously disgraceful decision.



  • Are you sure they wrote those rules at the start, or after their decision?

    They're not keeping players in sync with opta, so the rule is a strange one to have.
