Here are the reasons why we play FPL ..
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.
Otherwise you can set up your own private leagues and make wagers among your friends. The options are limited by your imagination.
If prizes and money are not what turn you on, bragging rights may be. 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.
There you go, five solid reasons to play Fantasy Premier League – if you ever need any.
