Here are five reasons why we play FPL ..
It Makes Every Game Exciting
Stoke VS WBA at 3am on a Monday night? Pfff…
If your line-up has 3 Stoke attackers and 3 WBA defenders, then this game makes all the difference and you will get up to watch it. Playing FPL makes every game in the Premier League season exciting. It gives you a reason to watch every one of them – yes – quite possibly all 380 of them in a season.
Gambling and betting are just games of luck. There is no point, you win some and lose some and the house always wins. FPL, is, however, a game of skill. And knowledge. And hard work. And effort. Season in season out, mates who do well in FPL repeat their feats over and over again.
“Why do you think the same five guys make it to the final table of the World Series of Poker EVERY YEAR? What, are they the luckiest guys in Las Vegas?” asked Mike McDermott (Matt Damon) in the 1998 film Rounders. Well said. Well said.
Accessibility and Intuition
If you had already built your life around the Premier League, then FPL is accessible and intuitive. You build your hunches after building a human almanac of past reasons. You can smell it when your favourite striker is due a hat-trick. You just know it when your team is going to keep a clean sheet. Today, FPL is an app away. Choosing a line-up is quick and easy if you want it to be. If you want to take 5 hours doing it, so be it – it will still be hell enjoyable.
Prize and Money
“If you are good at something, never do it for free,” said the Joker. In the world of Fantasy Premier League , there are tonnes of prizes to be won. The official FPL game offers superb prizes to global overall winners and solid monthly prizes. However, anyone in the game knows how difficult it is to actual be the top of the pile of a game played by nearly 4.5 million players.
Another platform that offers prizes is of course leaguesx.com. This platform offers micro prizes for winning games and for 2017/18, is offering a swathe of impressive prizes across different game modes. Suffice to say, there aren’t 4.5million players in League SX (yet), so with good skills, winning something isn’t as difficult!
If prizes and money are not what turn you on, bragging rights may. The FPL Draft edition is launched officially this year in the official site and it offers an opportunity for managers to form small mini-leagues to take on your mates. In a nutshell, the draft version sets a universe where one player can only be “owned” by one manager and trading of players are widely encouraged.
Togga FPL Draft of course already offers this format last season. It has an easy-to-use app and a good platform that offers managers opportunities to play FPL in a Draft format, much like how many American Fantasy Sports are played in.
There you go, five solid reasons to play Fantasy Premier League – if you ever need any.
