What is the FWL?

It is basically like fantasy football, but for the WWE. All you have to do is pick a team of WWE Superstars who you think will do well over the next few months. The better they do (more wins), the more points you get. At the end of the time period whoever has the most points, wins a cash prize, and its FREE to enter!

Please note: Talk Whatever Online and the FWL are not associated, affiliated or otherwise endorsed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). To visit WWE.com, click here

Start Date: Monday 2nd January 2017 (Beginning with WWE Raw)

(Note: No new players will be accepted once the season has begun – so please share the game with friends before the start date to ensure they don’t miss out!)

FWL Rules

Make sure you also read the: Competition Rules page

* You must be a registered member of the Talk Whatever Online Forums (it’s free to register).

* You must be a resident of the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, New Zealand or Australia. (This is so that I can send you the prize if you opt for the gift voucher option, I would need to use an English language website to order the prize) If your not interested in the prize (or have a valid Paypal account), you can enter from any country.

* You must be over the age of 13.

* Your entries must be received in the times specified.

* You must pick a team with the set amount of Superstars and within the set budget.

* You cannot change your superstars after the deadline for entries has passed, although you may be able to change 1 superstar from your team during the FWL period (within specific dates, keep an eye on the FWL forum!).

The Prize

The prize you win will depend entirely on your contributions to our forum, if you do not contribute to the forum you are still eligible for the £50 prize. However if you are a regular contributor to the forum and win the league…the better your prize could be.

The winner of the league will win:

£50.00: 0 posts
£75.00: 1-50 posts
£100.00: 51-200 posts*
£125.00: 201-350 posts*
£150.00: 351-500 posts*
£175.00: 501-750 posts*
£200.00: 751-1000 posts*
£250.00: 1001+ posts*

Posts can be the Entertainment, Wrestling, Video Games, Sports, Boxing & MMA or General Chat forums

* You must have made 25 posts within the season. The post count will be taken at the end of the final day of the season. Posts will be checked so please do not spam as they will not count! Talk Whatever Online’s decision will be final.

I’ve made these changes to reward the regular contributors for their participation.

The prize will be sent via Paypal to the winner, or if you prefer we can try to arrange a gift voucher of equal value for an online store: Amazon.com/.co.uk, Play.com etc

In the event of a tie at the top of the leaderboard the prize will be split by split by the number of winners against their own prize banding. So for example if MemberA (0 posts) and MemberB (250 posts) are both joint winners; Member A will receive £25 (£50/2) and MemberB will receive £62.50 (£125/2) as long as Member B has made 25 posts during the season. If not, then they would also get £25 (£50/2).

Member of another forum/website? Create your own user group!

There are a number of user groups you can select to join in your FWL user control panel – please ONLY select a user group if you are a member of that specific website. You can choose more than one group and add/remove yourself from any user groups at anytime during the FWL.

All this does is create leaderboards for just those users within each user group (links will be in the FWL user control panel). This makes it easier for you to track how well you are doing against your fellow website members.

Current user groups: Digital Spy + F4W + UKFF + Rajah + StableWars + SquaredCircle

Note: Everyone will still be included in the main leaderboard, and the prize will only be given to the winner of the main leaderboard.

If you would like to create a new user group, please contact Kam.

WARNING!

You can only register one account! Any members caught using the same IP or using proxy servers to try and get around the rules will have all their accounts deleted. Any issues/concerns please contact Kam.

NXT TakeOver points will be scored as a WWE PPV, with the title bonuses the SAME as their respective titles on the main brand shows

The Win bonus would be added to the appearance score so for example a win on Raw / Smackdown / Main Event / 205 Live would earn 30pts (20pts for match appearance and 10pts for win). A win at a PPV would earn 60pts. A loss on Raw / Smackdown / Main Event / 205 Live would earn 15pts (20pts for match appearance, -5 for loss). A win in a PPV main event would earn 95pts. You would add the bonus points of winning any title on top of these points.

The “Main Event” points will be awarded to the final match of the evening, unless otherwise stated i.e. “double main event”.

The appearances can be anything ( interview, appearing at ringside, interfering in a match, standing in the background etc) but only 1 appearance per show can count. Trailers, clips of previous shows (this includes press events, tours etc) or vignettes for current superstars are NOT included.

Talk Whatever Online’s decision will be final.

Each week all the members that have entered – will be put into a leaderboard – the member with the most points by the end of the period gets the prize.

*The FWL is based on REAL results from Raw, Smackdown, Main Event, 205 Live and PPV’s!
