Looking to join one. Mostly in it for the compendium points.
Anyone doing a Dota 2 fantasy league?
I was looking in theses forums too, since it is limited to 10 and I don't really have a lot friends playing. I'm just in for the points too, I also need to do the 10 random heroes. Let me know if you make one, Id join. If not Ill just make one myself, I don't think the other people are required.
I thought I'd tag you in to let you know I started a league up, just in case you haven't found one yet! I'll set a draft date when it starts to fill up a bit. There's 2 out of 10 so far so plenty of spots.
League ID: 125678
Some things to think about as you go into Fantasy Dota (assuming you are attempting to win, and not just doing it for laughs).
Some tips for all you duders as I am already in a league with my friends:
- Players get points for ALL games played during the season. That means matches outside of the International count. There are numerous big LAN events coming up (ESL One, Dreamhack, The Summit - off the top of my head and I have no idea what events are going on in China and the SEA region), and there are lots of players going to these. I would argue players on those teams are more valuable than ones not attending.
- You can add/drop players later as in regular fantasy football (pick up players playing today, drop them when they are done tomorrow).
- Rat dota (a term referring to winning by attrition essentially) is great for fantasy Dota. Longer games = more points. So if every player on your team only plays 60+ minute games this can be very boring to watch, but great for your fantasy points.
Looks like the league is full! I'm going to set a draft deadline for Tuesday 27th at midday BST. Don't know why I chose then but it's as good a time as any and it gives people the long weekend to pick your squad. If anyone really needs more time I can change it a bit if you can give me enough notice, just reply to me in this thread.
I'll use the default scoring system because it lets you change it if you wanted to but I don't really want to mess it all up because I have no clue. Here's a decent guide to stuff!
EDIT: turns out you can't set the time, just the date. It says 8.45 pm for me and I'm guessing that's BST so that would be 12.45pm west coast and 3.45pm east...I think!?
EDIT 2: So I think you have to draft live at the same time. Maybe you can't choose the same players as the other teams? In this case it's probably best to set it for a weekend day right? I've changed it to Sunday 25th at 8.45.
