Intro

What is Fantafoot
Fantafoot (FF) is a fantasy game based on soccer (=fantasy soccer), FF is a wholly authomatic program working on the net (soon by wap too). Everyone can play alone, joining one or more championships organized by FF, or in Groups of friends, using FF as a help for calculations, trading players standings etc.
How much do you need to pay for playing Fantafoot?
Fantafoot is FREE.

Quick Guide(tutorial)

Registration
Click on "register" and follow the instructions. You must choose an Username (nickname) and a valid e-mail address, to which FF will send the temporary password to log in. Be careful: the program recognizes upper and lower-case letters, some specials keys are not allowed. When you receive your password u can log in. The password will be immediately sent. If you do not receive any e-mail confirmation in a short time please a-mail the FF supervisor.
To log in
Click on "login", write your username and your password. Be careful with upper and lower-case letters. If you log in successfully, your "Manager page" will show up. From this page you can change your "personal infos" (e-mail address and password) and access to your teams.
Create a team
Click on "create team" and choose a championship. There are always some championships active. Every Championship has got different rules and features. You can join the championship that is active during the period yor are logged in (only active championships are showed). Then choose your Team name. If the name is accepted the "Team page" will show up.
Playing Fantafoot
Now the procedure depends on the championship you joined. If it's a "Group Championship" using an "Open Auction" you must join an exsisting group or create a new group by your own (but in some championships only the FF supervisor can create a group). If the filling market is ruled by a "Closed Auction" you must decide your bids and only after that operation you can choose a group. If you joined a "no-group Championship" (without an auction) you can immediately begin filling your team, adquiring players to complete your roster. Market and Tactics buttons will appear authomatically when the auction is over and the championship begins.

Manager

Manager page
In this page(“manager XXX home”) there are all the team you own (or the teams a certain manager owns, if you are checking his page), teams status, the group they belong and the average points. There are also the groups you supervise, if there are any, the championships they belong, the number of teams that joined that group, the maximum number of teams that can join it, the status and the kind of group (public or private, if you need a password to join a team in it). There are also a button "preferencies", to change your personal infos and another button to create a team. If you are checking another manager's page, there is a link to see his public infos.
Info manager and/or changing personal infos (password included)

The address you write on "my info" page is used by FF to communicate you important things as expiring dates, trades, results, and so on. If you are visiting someone else manager's info page (clicking on the nickname of that manager), you can check his own public data.

Teams

Create a team
You must create at least a team if you want to play FF! Click on NEW TEAM #8217; then choose the Championship you want to join (in some championships you must also decide the kind of auction you prefer. Then you can define your team name (default name "my team").
Now you can see your team page. (all buttons are at top left of the screen).
Team Status
The status of a team can be "waiting, bidding, filling, active, ghost, over, gover" (in chronoligic order approx). There could be other kind of status (promoted, confirmed, relegated) but only in "revolving championships". The first stauts of your team depends on the kind of auction you choose (see below). In the open auction the first status is "waiting": When the group is full you will receive an e-mail in which FF tells you the date of the beginning of the auction. When the auction begins the status will turn into "bidding").

If you chose the Closed Auction, the first status is "bidding"; during the bidding staus you can start with your bids until the deadline written on the group page. When you finish your bids you can click on "submit team" and the status will turn into "waiting". Now you can join a group (or create one). For more details see the Closed Auction paragraph.

To join a group
Click on "join group" or "create group", if you want to play with your friends. (see above). When you create a group you can choose among different features. You can create a public (everyone can join in) group or a private one (they need to know the password to join in), you can set the open or the closed auction, the number of teams that play in that group, the number of turns and other options will be set in the near future.
Team page
During the open auction
During the open auction (status bidding) you can see your current bids. There are special menus too check the global situation of the auction or to search for players still available. These are dynamic situations. Therefore you can see the "snapshot" of the auction only when you open the page or when you reload it (there is a special button to reload). Pay attention on special warning messages set at top of this page. These messages communicate you changings in deadlines. For further infos on the open auction see the "auction" paragraph.
During the closed auction
During the closed auction the team page shows the list of your bids (when the status is bidding or waiting) or the list of the players you acquired (status filling). To chenge the staus to waiting you must join a group and wait until the group is full. For further details on the closed auction see the "auction" paragraph.
Filling the roster
When the auction is over (or when you create a team, in no-group championships) the status og the team is filling. That means you must buy players at a fixed price, using the budget you have, to start playing. You must fill all the gaps in your team page. If you are filling your roster after an auction, you must hurry up because if someone buy an available player, that player will be no longer available for the next manager! When you complete your roster, filling all the spot, you can activate your team.
Activate team
When you click on "activate team", FF checks if your roster is valid. Be careful, this operation last some minutes; wait until a red sentence shows up. If there is a red error message and you don't know why you can't activate your team, there could be a corrupted file
