Well that was a bit grim.
Here are Panic Dollars standings after JLT1. The good news is that no matter how badly your player(s) went in Wangaratta you still get paid a return on your investment.
Click on the tables to make them bigger.
The new value of your investment and your new Ranking is shown in the green section on the right of the table.
An example of how to read the table.
Look at Hambo’s scores at the very top. He invested $25 in Gleeson, who had a return rate of 40%. Gleeson played ( P), so his return is $25x40% = $10. Hambo’s investment in Gleeson is now worth $35 (as shown in column 3rd from the right).
Hambo also invested in $25 in Hooker. But Hooker did not play (- instead of P) so he loses $100x1% = $1. Hambo’s investment in Hooker is now worth only $24.
The leader is @riolio after his decision to go all in on Smack. Riolio spent most of last year at the other end of the table, so this is a nice turnaround for him. @Nod and @Heptides complete the podium - both are new Gamers this year, again suggesting that sometimes it helps not to understand too much about this game.
19 different players were picked (42% of squad) which is a good spread. Hooker, Guelfi and Raz were the only selected players who did not play.
The average investment return across all Gamers was 38.2% which is just above the average return for the whole home and away season last year (37%). Although last year’s JLT1 was more lucrative for gamers with a 52% return.
There will not be much action this week, JLT2 is 2 weeks away. I will probably post draft rates next weekend to give you some idea of what they will look like before the official rates are posted on Tuesday, and investments reopened.
For those who are new, you can just cash in your current players and get as many replacements as you want. There are no transaction costs. You can spend the total value of your new investments for the next match (not just the $100 you had last week).
Using this week as a guide, investments will close when the squad is announced 4pm Melbourne time on Thursday March 8, but make your own checks.
