Does it matter how many teams I have?
If you have an odd number of competitors participating, an Ambition Phantom player will be created to ensure there is always a matchup between two players with no competitor sitting out.
What is the Ambition Phantom?
When an odd number of competitors are being used, the Ambition Phantom is a headless competitor to ensure that no competitor get a "bye" week, or a week with no competitor. The Phantom's score will be the average score of all competitors. We recommend multi-user style Grouping and average Metrics especially if the Phantom will be participating as a competitor.
Can one team be in two different Fantasy Competitions?
A competitor (for example, Team A) cannot compete in simultaneous Fantasy competitions.
In the case of desiring two full Fantasy Competitions back-to-back, the current Fantasy Competition will have to finish before a new Competition can be created.
Note: A User can compete in a User vs User Fantasy Competition while also being involved in another Fantasy Competition as a part a competing Group.
Ex. Joe Smith is competing as an individual in Fantasy Competition A, and also competition as a member of a Challenge Team in Fantasy Competition B.
I built the Competition, but where did it go?
When you build a competition (season) it takes ~5 minutes to process, don't panic if everything doesn't show up immediately.
You can see any Fantasy Competitions you've built -- left navigation > Competitions > Manage.
Filter for Competition Type = Fantasy.
What is used as a tiebreaker?
In the case of a tie, the winner is determined by the competitor with highest daily score across the entire competition. If both competitors have the same highest daily score, the winner will be determined randomly.
Can I compete on Objective Score instead of a specific Metric?
If you wish to compete on Objective Score you can only do so if the Objective Score time frame is set to Weekly.
Do I have to keep up with and create brackets?
Nope! The schedule is determined automatically.
What happens if a Team/Group/Role that's competing is disbanded or deleted during the Fantasy Competition?
In a case where a Team/User is deactivated or deleted during the course of an ongoing Fantasy Competition, the Phantom will take the place of the deactivated entity. If the Phantom was already participating in the Fantasy Competition, a second Phantom competitor will be generated as well.
