    Satisfactory - 20 (37%)

    What features do you feel the FI is missing?

    Higher dividends , and better communication I'm still waiting for a refund from two weeks ago buying a player and still not entered my port

    Detailed Buzz history, even something like the player history on the Premier League Fantasy Football would be good.
    The fact that you have to pay subs to another company/website to gain info to enable you to use FI effectively will put the lower income mass market off getting involved imo.

    Treble media on Mach days and goalkeeper pb.

    Simple 12m and 6m dividend yield at current price. Given this is pretty fundamental it would be helpful to see this in a simple format.

    Analytics

    How long futures is held for / incorrect player data / improve the reserve price queue

    the platform is clunky. I'd rather see more money put in to the platform working, rather than advertising. A few people i know have seen adevrts, signed up, got involved and then realise that the platform isn;t really that fit for purpose and have left.

    Order books, which I appreciate are on their way.

    Great idea but non-existent reporting tools to analyse your portfolio (without an excel dump). It should be possible to analyse your holdings and manipulate the data
    If someone is willing to sell a £5 player for £3 then the system should allow it. The commission could still be based upon the £5 price. Demand would drive price more dynamically in this way. Instant sell should be deactivated permanently. Basically, you only sell to another buyer.
    All IPOs should start at the lowest Squad value (circa 25p), to allow as many people as possible to get in as low as possible. The good players will still rise to their 'normal' value.
    Increase the 100max buy to 250 (maybe further later?)
    Install a maximum number of shares per player (would drive a more dynamic price model), say 10,000 shares. Once a player hits £10, there is an automatic split which would allow more liquidity into the bigger players.

    Better customer support. Better customer interaction for updates. Better HR/media management.

    Integrated data,

    Drag and drop players in your portfolio and setting folders for players in portfolio

    Portfolio total based on is price.Player info on portfolio page

    1. Accurately working watchlist. One that carries over to different platforms and shows they’re price when added to watchlist. This would help to see their growth or decrease.
    2. In house data. Being able to select a player and see historical data (Pb and mb) as well as a 2 year graph/a graph we can put the timescale on.

    The ability to set a price at which a player will be sold if they hit that price (i.e. Stops)
    Sorting of portfolios into different categories. Probably better communication generally from FI but also can see why they are hands off at times so no great complaints

    To be able to see where you are in the sell queue

    Would like to be able to order the portfolio rankings on PC, can do it on mobile

    1. Date of futures purchase to allow management of 3 year rule
    2. Price setting of sales for futures
    3. Free data on historic PB/MB results for all players
    4. more promotional incentives for traders - free tickets for premier/championship league matches
    5. Contact directly / through FI app rather than heavy reliance on Twitter

    Visability of the sale queue

    Export to Excel.
    Dividend History.

    Specific searches. Teams/position etc

    Ability to search by team

    Should include data saying how long we've held number of futures in each player since.

    Searching by age/club

    I think that some player stats should be included as part of the platform, such as how many times players have won on and mb, as well as average mb and on scores. It would also be nice to see some player stats, and maybe just a little more information about each player. E.g. how many times played last season/this season, average rating, and so on. The last thing that I feel would be nice is quite a simple one, but an additional we imal place to the player prices would be quite nice.

    Shorting

    I only use the IOS app and it would be nice to have a shortlist or watchlist

    Reliable technology. Far too many tech faults at the moment and very slow customer service.

    A stats tab for each player would be good. Such a goals per game ratio, clean sheet ratio etc...

    Being able to sort players in categories

    Better customer services response.

    Able to sort portfolio.




  • Looking at the comments. People seem to want analytics built into site, a better watch list and better sorting of player search and our own profolios.



  • Good work, thanks 👍



  • Very interesting!



  • Good work and interesting results. Well done to the three people with 200%+ returns, very jealous!

    Does anyone know if the guys at FI read this forum? I assume they do, but there are some good suggestions made here which can hopefully be introduced in the future.



  • Oh yes, we read it.

    This feedback is priceless and great to see!



  • I know its not quite free but i offer a lot of data and analytics for just £1 a month guys ;). 180 happy customers and counting. I do free give aways too when customer milestones hit.
