AFL Fantasy is here for 2013

Woohoo! AFL Fantasy has been launched for 2013! A new sponsor, a slick makeover and a couple of new games are the exciting things we’ve noticed.

AFL Fantasy has just been launched for the 2013 season with the classic Dream Team game ready to go, but joined by AFL Fantasy Elite (draft game) and AFL Fantasy Match Day (mini-DT game).

Some videos to check out:

The big news to come out of the launch is that there is a new sponsor of the game… NAB (National Australia Bank). There is no word on prizes as yet. But surely being a bank, it’ll be back to cash, like the good old days!

The site has had a nice makeover – I am especially loving the player photos on the ground! They look awesome.

So anyway, what are you doing here? Start making your team!

    Been looking forward to this for ages. Never complained about the two trades or any other changes.

    However I’m not a fan of the player faces. Dunno. Think I preferred the coloured Guernsey/flag they had there before.

      I mean when picking the team initially. I think in a way it was easier when they had the team colours instead of the player faces to find players because you could scroll down until you found the team colour you were interested in and then check the player.
      For example: When searching for rookies that are all the same price I would look at the team flag because I could identify with that instead of a small profile shot. Where as the faces mesh together a bit and make it tough.

        My thoughts exactly.

    Awkward Marc Murphy is awkward. The player headshots are a nice touch.

      Actually now I’ve seen it properly I agree with Dezza. Photos are horrible quality and the team colours are a must.

        Agreed. The faces are a waste of space and just make it harder to find players and see the structure of your team.

          It just seems that because something is new, everyone seems to make out what a wonderful idea it is – channel 7 a case in point with some of their ridiclous camera shots and angles.
          I agree with Dezza and Justin – team colours is a much easier way to find the players you are looking for. We don’t care what they look like.
          Maybe this has been done just for the girls – pick by looks (that would not be a first)

            This is dreamteam – not love making! We don’t want to look at our players faces! We just want to use them for their dream team points then trade them out for someone better.

    Just checking out Fantasy Elite.

    Finals only available for top 8?? Who the hell came up with that? The maximum number of teams you can have is 12 – and 8 finalists there is already far too many. I want to set up a 10 team league and with only 2 teams eliminted from the finals, the whole season would be a farce.

    I’m going to have to enter it without finals and then do a 2 game finals series manually.

    Why don’t people use a bit of common sense before setting these things up?
