Position Updates

The flexibility of TheBench platform and the removal of position restrictions means that we are able to change player positions mid-season.

The rules that we have set aside are that if a player starts three games in a row in a position they are not named as eligible for on NRLCEO then we will change them AFTER their third game.  This allows us to be responsive fairly quickly to changes, but also removes the need to change players if they are only filling in for a position temporarily due to injuries in their squad. Please note that players starting from the bench do not qualify for position updates as it’s hard to determine their position for sure.

We will also update their positions if they play five games non-concurrently throughout the season in another position. This is to reward those flexible utility players that fill in other positions throughout the year.

With all that in your melon, we now list all of the players who have had positional changes throughout the year so far:

2017 NRLCEO Season Guide

This 2017 Season Guide is just the potion needed to dominate your private League on NRLCEO.

With 50 pages jam packed with information and statistics, it is the only preparation tool needed prior to your NRLCEO draft on www.TheBench.com.au.

Big thanks to our guru graphic designer Scott Beeby who took on the challenge for the first time and has taken “The Bible” to the next level. It’s looks fantastic! We couldn’t have done it without you Scott.

As you will see, your NRLCEO Season Guide is jam packed with player and team information as well as tips from the gurus.  But NRLCEO revolves around one thing – numbers.  Every successful CEO peruses the stats and there is no doubt that they are the life blood of every fantasy fanatic.

This Season Guide is specific to NRLCEO and the stats that we have compiled should help you gain that edge over your competitors – a necessity for private competitions against mates!

 

Can’t get enough stats???

For the second year now we have another bonus!

We’re also offering a downloadable spreadsheet which contains the most important data. Unlike the guide which we are limited by space, it includes average minutes for all 502 players as well as the all important workhorse averages and Stats Per Minute Average (copyright Geoff Adams aka the Workhorse Watcher).

For the first time this year we’ve also included total tackles for the season, total runs and average metres per game.

Metre Eater – what’s it all about?

Metre Eaters

We have implemented a new scoring option on NRLCEO for the first time in 2016. It’s called the “metre eater” and it’s there to help boost the value of the hard working runners in the NRL.

We know that different positions have varied opportunities to make more runs so we have used different requirements for each position.

 

So how can a player get a Metre Eater?

Metre Eaters:

Fullbacks: 150+ metres run
Wingers: 150+ metres run
Centres: 100+ metres run
Five-Eighths: 100+ metres run
Halfbacks: 100+ metres run
Front Rowers: 150+ metres run
Hookers: 100+ metres run
Back Rowers: 150+ metres run

 

Double Metre Eaters:

All positions: 200+ metres run

 

You can customise the metre eater to whatever points your competition wants to use. But as a guide we recommend each metre eater to be worth two points. So the new rule would have been worth an extra 80 points to RTS last year! Taking his total of 92 points to a mammoth 172 points which would have seen him become the highest scoring NRLCEO player in the game ahead of Semi Radradra (170), James Tedesco (158) and Paul Gallen (151).

Taking a look at the statistics it’s pretty easy to see who the big winners will be for this new scoring option: fullbacks, wingers and front rowers. Hence why we have split the requirements for each position so that each different type of player and position have a chance to hit the mark with this new requirement.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is head and shoulders above the rest of the field when it comes to metre eaters. His metre returns are incredible. He had some games where he returned over 300 metres! So if you are going to use the new rule, then his selection is a must.

Paul Gallen is already gold on NRLCEO but under this new scoring option he has become much more valuable! Gal racked up 200m on a weekly basis which meant he qualified for the full double metre eater regularly. His metre eating will make him extremely valuable.

Aaron Woods and Ben Matulino each scored very well based on last year’s stats as well with 23 and 22 metre eater efforts respectively. Both will keep the same role this year and you can expect much of the same again this year.

Coming in as a rookie last year Cameron Munster quickly established himself in the Storm line-up at fullback, but with Billy Slater returning he will go back to the centres and struggle for the same metre returns.

As you creep down the rest of the list you notice a bit more of a mixture of positions but it is dominated by front rowers who take the kickoff returns and full backs and wingers who take the kick returns.

It isn’t until you get down to 19th position that you see Simon Mannering, Anthony Milford and Boyd Cordner in different positions to the trends.

We’re always interested to hear what you guys think about our new improvements. Is the metre eater what you want? Or are there still tweaks we need to make to perfect it?

Sold? How do you add it to your competition?

As with most things on TheBench, this scoring type is optional. The first thing you need to do if you want to change any of your scoring options is go to your League Settings.

  1. Click the drop down tab at the top right of your screen and click the third option from the top which should read (Your Competition Name) Settings.Top RIght
  2. To get to the League Settings, click Edit League (the third option in the left hand side menu column). You should then be presented with the screen below. To edit the scoring click Edit Positions and Scoring.Edit Positions
  3. Then you can edit the scoring of a metre eater for each position as you like by clicking the Edit icon next to each position as required.Positions
  4. Lastly you need to add the formula to the scoring. The first thing to do is click $metreEater below the scoring expression text box which will insert it into that players scoring expression. If you want the Metre Eater to be worth one point you can stop there. If you want it to be worth two points or more then add 2* in front of the $ dollar sign.Scoring Expression
  5. Important – if you are using the Metre Eater scoring this year you must also use the double metre eater. You cannot pick one or the other.  If you wish to reduce the value of the Metre Eater you can make a single worth 0.5 points and a double worth 1 point. It will round up to 1 point anyway.
  6. Email us at [email protected] if you have any more questions.

How to locate your Trade Deadline

Not sure when the Trade Deadline is for your league?  The below steps will help you work it out:
Step One:  Select “My Profile” from the team menu at the top right-hand corner of TheBench.

 

 

Step Two:  Select the edit icon under the “Action” heading.

 

2

 

 

Step Three: You can view your Trade Deadline down the bottom left under the heading “Last Trade Round”.

 

3

 

What does this all mean?

  • You can make trades and drops up until the end of your Last Trade Round.  That means that if your Last Trade Round shows as Round 19, you can continue to trade and drop players right up until lockout at the start of round 20.
  • After your Last Trade Round, you can no longer trade (obviously!) but you also cannot ‘drop’ players.  This is to prevent coaches out of the running dropping players for another coach to pick up.  However you can still pick up free agents if you clear a roster spot before the deadline (recommended).

 

 

 

New head-to-head features

You may have noticed we have recently updated the Head to Head page on the iOS app.  You can see the Head-to-head page on from the Home page by clicking on any of the games.

The main difference is the page now shows you forecasts.  The forecasts are based on historical averages.

Up the top, under to total score and the count of players who have played is the total forecast score, labelled “Forecast”.  This is a sum of the averages for all the players that are picked in the team.  The best thing is as the round progresses, this forecast is updated with the actual scores as each player plays.  This means you can keep track of the likelihood of you pulling off a win or a loss as the round ticks through.

For each player, their forecasted score is shown in light blue.  As they play, their actual score is updated in a dark colour.

All about the Waiver Wire

Waiver Wire

Waiver Wire

One of the most voted for feature on our suggestion page this year was the Waiver Wire.  The Waiver Wire is a feature imported from the American NFL Fantasy Games and is a play on how the real world NFL Player contracts are managed and traded throughout the season.  Check out more about Waivers here.

In our game, Waivers are a better and more fair way to manage the drafting and delisting of players during the season and is really made up of three main parts:

  • Waivers: Players dropped from any Squad are temporarily flagged as being under Waiver, preventing them from being drafted to another Club without a Waiver Claim Request.
  • Free Agent Window: This is the period where any player, unless under Waiver, can be drafted.  Outside the Free Agent Window, no player can be drafted but a Claim Request can be submitted for processing upon the start of the Free Agent Window.  The Free Agent Window opens a few days before the start of the next Round and closes once the Round starts.  You can see when the Free Agent Window opens on the Fixture page.
  • Claim Requests: A request for drafting a Player under Waiver or outside the Free Agent Window.  The system will process requests nightly during the Free Trade Window and in the order of the lowest ranking coach first.

The following guide provides some information on how to use the Waiver Wire and what to expect. Excuse the Aerial Ping Pong references. We have copied this article directly from our parent website TheBench.

 

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 12.56.12 pmDelisted Players

With the Waiver Wire enabled (which your Competition Manager can do for custom Leagues), all players that are delisted and under Waiver will be shown on the Home page in the Waiver Wire panel (see screenshot).

The Waiver Wire panel will show the time when the Player will return to the free market and will also give all coaches a chance to request a Claim Request to draft the Players.

Coaches can also access the “My Waiver Requests” page to view and manage all of their submitted Claim Requests.  See below for more about managing your Claim Requests.

A player must remain in the Waiver Wire for at least 24 hours.  Realistically it is 24 hours plus the time until the Waiver Request processing job runs.

 

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 1.05.30 pmSubmitting a Claim Request

To submit a Claim Request, a Coach need only click the plus sign next to the Player on the Waiver Wire panel to open the “Create Waiver Claim Request” page. A Coach can do the same from the Players profile page.

When submitting a Claim Request, a coach can also, optionally, nominate a Player from their Squad to drop in the process.  This saves a coach having to drop a Player in advance to make room on what might be a speculative request.  Clicking Submit saves the request and adds it to the queue for processing.

 

Managing your Claim Requests

You can manage your active Waiver Claim Requests from the “My Waiver Requests” page.  You can delete them or change the priority order.  The up arrow will push a Claim Request up the priority order which means it will be processed first.  A Coach can also delete their Claim Requests at any time by hitting the bin icon.

The information on the page also shows you when a request is due for processing and when the Claim Request job is next due to run.

Coaches cannot see other Coaches Claim Requests, and for a good reason, Coaches would want to keep this sort of stuff private.

The Competition Manager however, as per everything else on TheBench, can see other Coaches requests so they can manage the Competition.

You just need to trust your Competition Manager, easier for some than others!

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 1.09.16 pm

 

 

Processing Claim Requests

Claim Requests are processed every night at around 8pm during the Free Agent Window.  It will also run just before the Free Agent Window opens to process the Claim Requests before all Players are released to the open market.

Claim Requests are processed in reverse order of the Ladder.

That is, the Club at the bottom gets their highest priority Claim Request processed first, then the second bottom etc up to the top.  The system then returns to the bottom and processes the second priority Claim Requests and continues until all Claim Requests that can be processed are processed.

If a Coaches highest priority Claim Request is rejected for any reason, the Player is already taken for example, the system will try to process the next priority Claim Request.  It will continue to try to process at least one request for the given Coach before moving to the next Coach.

Coaches will be able to view the outcome of their Claim Request from the “My Waiver Requests” page.

 

Summary

So that is the Waiver Wire in a nutshell.  We hope you like it.  The Waiver Wire is new for us too so if you have any feedback on how to improve it, we are all ears.

In summary:

  • Delisted players need a Claim Request to be drafted for at least the first 24 hours after being dropped
  • All players can only be drafted during the Free Agent Window without a Claim Request
  • Claim requests are processed each night during the Free Agent Window, in reverse ladder order

iPhone App Update

First posted on TheBenchNews by Ben our guru developer

I have been hard at work over the off season giving the iOS App a bit of a face-lift (actually it is more than a facelift, it has been a complete re-write of every single line of the code, but lets not let details get in the way of a good story).

You might be familiar with how the App works but it all looks a bit different so I thought I would take you through it and introduce you to some of the new features.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 9.52.59 pmLook and Feel

The first thing you will notice is the look and feel.

The whole thing has been updated to be more iOS 8’ish (if that is a word), ie. updated to align closer with the new look-and-feel introduced by Apple in recent releases.

Clean lines, nice fonts and automatically resizing of the user interface so the app will look good on any size iPhone from the original screen size of iPhone 3 and 4, the longer form of the iPhone 5 and the new bigger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

 

Widget

One of my favourite features of the recent Apple IOS updates is Widgets.

A Widget is one of the handy little panels that you can access from anywhere by just pulling your finger down from the top of the screen to reviews the “Today” page.  It means you don’t need to open the whole App (and close what you are doing) to access some quick info.

Well the good news is now TheBench has a widget! Yeee harr!

When you first load the App, open the “Today” page on your phone by dragging it down from the top.  At the bottom of the page, you will see an edit link when you can customise which widgets you see.  Click edit and you should find some options to add the TheBench widget to the “Today” page so you can get super quick updates to the scores as things progress through the weekend.

Beauty!

 

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.30.49 pmThe Draft

We have previously never supported any draft functionality on the iOS app so I thought it was time we did something about it… so I did.

The app now not only lets you add and remove players from your squad during the season (see the Squad section below), but also lets you do it during the draft.

The bad news is that you now no-longer have any excuse for holding up your draft.

The biggest change you will see is the new Draft Tracker page which will load in place of the Home page when the draft is running.  The Draft Tracker page lets you see who has the next pick and also gives you a running account of who has recently been picked.

Front and centre on the screen is a timer which will either count up, if you have no time limit, or down if you do have a time limit set on draft picks.  This tab is a great little heads up display to sit on the table during a live draft.

 

Picking a Team

Picking a team is not all that different to previous versions of the app other than a lick of paint.  If you support a bonus position like Captain or Kicker, you will see the option at the top of the list.  You can also Sort the list by the players average score for a positions.  As on the Website, your Competition Manager can edit which Positions are used for the sorting.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 9.28.13 pmScreen Shot 2015-01-27 at 9.28.18 pm

 

Squads

The Squad page has been rebuilt to add a couple of features that have been asked for on our Feature Request page (which is here by the way: https://thebench.com.au/feature-requests), specifically the ability to add you your squad and the ability to drop players.

Firstly, dropping players is now as easy as, well, a swipe of your finger.  As is common on iOS Apps, simply swipe your finger from right to left across the player you want to drop and the “Delete” option will be reviled.  Simply touch the Delete button to drop the Player from your Squad.

With a Player deleted, you can now also add players to your Squad by touching on the + at the top right of the screen.  This will take you to the Add Player page from where you can search for and add players to your squad.

The best news is, as mentioned above, this functionality also works during draft so you can now make your draft picks on the run.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.52.26 pmScreen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.52.34 pmScreen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.52.42 pm

Home Page & Ladder

I have given the home page a touch-up or two as well.  Functionally is largely the same as you have seen in previous years but it is now better.

You can click on any of the games to view the head-to-head page to see exactly who your opponent has picked in their team and who is scoring all the points.

An then there is the ladder… not much to say about the ladder… still there…

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.27.11 pmScreen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.27.08 pmScreen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.48.46 pm

So that’s about it as a very quick walk through.  A few new key features, a lick of paint and you should find better performance and stability all around.

As always, if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them so post them up on our suggestions page here: https://thebench.com.au/feature-requests

What is NRLCEO?

Coaches Box

Warning! NRLCEO is the most addictive fantasy rugby league game you have ever played.

The reason our game is so much more addictive than other games is simple; the draft and our scoring system.

The preseason live draft allows for you and your friends to join and competition and create a unique team.  Unlike the regular versions of Supercoach and NRL Fantasy, if you decide that you want Corey Parker or Cam Smith, he’s yours!  No one else can have him in their team and that means that when he succeeds on the field, you are the only one that is cheering because you are the only one who benefits from his success. You can complete a draft over a few weeks or it can be all over and done with in under an hour. It’s up to you.

Secondly, our scoring system makes each week like a real life NRL game.  Instead of a game finishing 742 to 643 points against your mates, our game makes Monday Nights great!  Imagine sitting there watching Monday Night Footy, knowing that you are only 7 points down and you have three players to come against your opponents zero.  Just two tries, or a try and a workhorse will take you to victory.  Now that is excitement!  Depending on the point scoring options you choose, our scoring ranges from 30-70 points each week on average; a much more manageable score.

Some of the features of our game include a Rolling Lockout, Waiver Wire and an iPhone App.

Our game platform on TheBench is the most customisable fantasy rugby league game around, and better yet it also looks great too!  So if this little introduction is enough to get you interested, I suggest you head on over to www.TheBench.com.au and sign up to play today.

Get your mates involved and you will never watch a rugby league game in the same way again.
