The app is gonna be available for free on all major app stores: the Android Play Store, the iOS App Store and Huawei AppGallery.
WHAT AM I GONNA WIN?
Thanks to the support of our sponsor, we’ll be able to offer amazing prizes to the best fantasy coaches.
CAN I REMOVE THE ADS?
For now you can’t, but we can assure you that we implemented ads in a way that they won’t be too invasive and won’t negatively impact your fantasy football experience on FantaMaster Mundial. As you can imagine, advertising is necessary to make the project sustainable and cover the costs that we have to run such a platform.
HOW DOES THE TRANSFER MARKET WORK?
We designed it to be very simple: when the gameweek is not ongoing, meaning that no matches are being played, you’ll have an unlimited number of transfers you can make in order to build your squad of 15 players, so if a player gets kicked out from the competition, you can easily replace him on the transfer market. You’ll start with a budget of 150 credits and you’ll have to choose the best strategy to aim at the highest scores and win the competition between fantasy coaches.
However, there’s a limit on the number of players belonging to the same team that you can have in your squad: during the pool phase this limit is set to 3, then during the round of 16 it’s increased to 4, 5 for the round of 8, 6 for the semifinals and 8 for the final round which also includes the final for the 3rd place.
WHAT DO I NEED SPECIAL FANTACARDS FOR? HOW CAN I GET THEM?
Every 24 hours you’ll be able to open a new pack. If you’re lucky, you’ll get one or more special fantacards with which you’ll be able to power up your players and add 1 more bonus point to the final score.
Of course, you won’t be able to open any pack if you haven’t created your squad yet.
I HEARD ABOUT LIVE REPLACEMENTS. HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s very simple! A gameweek is usually spread across several days, so between the end of the last match of a given day and the first match of the next day, you’re allowed to replace one of your players and pick one from the bench.
Be careful, the replacement window starts after the end of the last match of a given day and ends once the following match has started. For instance, if the last match has been played on a given day at 8pm, the replacement window will start at 11:30pm the same day and will close at the starting time of the following match. Therefore if the following match starts at 11am, the replacement window will be open until 11am.
You can replace any player, regardless of his rating or performance, however you can replace at most 4 players during a given gameweek, you can’t pick a player who has already played or has already been replaced and in your starting 11 there must always be at least 1 goalkeeper, 3 defenders, 3 midfielders and 1 attacker.
HOW DO AUTOMATIC REPLACEMENTS WORK?
In addition to manual live substitutions, the system automatically performs automatic substitution upon calculating your lineup score, meaning that if any of the 11 starting players hasn’t played or hasn’t received a rating (in case he played less than 15 minutes).
The way these automatic substitutions are performed is very simple and takes into account the order with which you have put your players on the bench. This means that the system will automatically pick the first available player on the bench with a rating, on the condition that the final formation is a valid one, meaning that it must contain 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders, at least 3 midfielders and at least 1 attacker.
CAN I CREATE TOURNAMENTS AND INVITE MY FRIENDS?
Of course! In the app you’ll find a dedicated section called “Leagues” through you’ll be able to create your own leagues and share the join code or the join link with your friends.
WHAT BONUSES ARE APPLIED TO THE PLAYERS RATINGS?
The bonuses that are applied to phe players ratings are those that are traditionally used in the italian fantasy football: +3 for a goal scored (including penalty), +1 for an assist, -1 for a conceded goal (goalkeeper only), +3 for a saved penalty, -3 for a missed penalty, -0.5 for a yellow card, -1 for a red card.
In addition to the bonuses listed above, there’s also a bonus with a dynamic value that can vary depending on the rating of your captain.
rating <= 5: -2
rating = 5.5: -1
rating = 6: 0
rating = 6.5: +1
rating = 7: +2
rating = 7.5: +3
rating >= 8: +4
HOW DOES THE SCORING SYSTEM WORK?
The scoring system is only based on the data and statistics we get by our provider. This way, the final players ratings are 100% based on data.
During the match you’ll be able to see scores getting updated in real time, while at the end of the match those scores will be converted into ratings.
HOW DOES THE CONVERSION WORK?
|Shots out of target||0,5|
|Shots in target||2|
|Save inside the box||3|
Score -> Rating conversion
|Rating||Min Score||Max Score|
