Update: 11th Sept We've now passed over 1800 entries to the competition and I will be closing the submission form Friday evening GMT time so make sure you get your entries in. You should have received an email confirmation that your entry was processed if not, don't worry as we will display all entries a few days after we close submissions. If you want to check to see if your team is in, try to resubmit your team with your email address. If it says Duplicate Entry then you know your entry is already in the system.
NOTE: Confirmation emails can take up to 24 hrs to be sent out due to the large demand.
Ok, here we go. As G-Man has already announced we'll be conducting a Fantasy League for everyone on the site this year. This was in response to a large number of people who missed out on the Prediction League that we'll also be running for Season 4.
This should make watching each episode of Lost mean even more to you as each episode, event, character will be earning you points based on their actions etc.
If you are a member of any Lost Forum/Site/Board, would you be so kind as to let them know of this Competition so that we get as many entries in as possible.
1) This is open to everyone who has a Blogger account. If you have not got one, you can get one free here. Sign-up for a Free Blogger Account.
2) You pick 1 character from each of the 7 groups below.
3) Each episode your character is awarded or deducted points based on certain events, see below.
4) After each episode myself and G-Man will collate all the points and publish a league table of who is currently winning. G-Man also hopes to do a Video Podcast summarising the weekly events and points, as well as a look forward to next weeks episode and potential points.
5) You may only submit 1 entry per email/blogger account.
6) Prizes for the Fantasy League will be announced later in the year.
7) Myself and G-Man will both be entering but will not be eligible for Prizes :)
Obviously if we asked you to just pick 7 characters 99% of you would probably go with Locke, Jack, Sawyer, Ben, Desmond, Hurley, Juliet etc, so to make this more skillful and tricky we've put the characters into 7 groups. Using the submission form at the end of this post you must select one character from each group for your team.
With this grouping of characters there are over 78,000 different combinations!
As with all Fantasy Teams, your players/characters are awarded points each week. Myself and G-Man have come up with the following points allocation. So use your knowledge of Lost and a bit of luck to select the 7 Characters you think will earn you the most points.
How do you Stack Up?
