The Scoop Behind FanIQ Season Two

10/21/09 in FanIQ   |   Ty   |   81 respect

As we’ve announced, we’ve been hard at work developing the next generation of competition on FanIQ.  We’re calling this new season of game play Season Two.  The goal of Season Two is to make FanIQ’s competitions more exciting, easier to understand, and ultimately more fun for all fans.         

Here are the exciting new features you can expect in Season Two later this month:

Introducing Quick Fantasy – Win Cash Daily!

We’ve often been asked why FanIQ doesn’t have Fantasy.   Our belief is that the world doesn’t need another fantasy game like all the rest – long, hard to play, and frustrating (if your team sucks).  Fantasy games should be quick, easy, and above all fun to play every day, so we’ve created a game with a fun new twist – instead of playing one game against the same group of friends for an entire season, you can play a new game against anyone every day!  It’s Quick Fantasy, and it’s only available on FanIQ.

We also know that fantasy is a lot more fun when you can bet your opponent on the outcome of the game.  So, we’re enabling Cash Games as well as rolling out a new currency called Q Bucks that you can use to wager in Fantasy.  Challenge your friends head to head, and the winner takes the Cash or Q Bucks pot! 

Q Bucks are earned by winning weekly trophies in games, visiting FanIQ every day, and other future activities on FanIQ .  Q Bucks can be spent in our new Q Store on cool stuff for your profile and on gifts you can send to other fans.  In the future, you’ll be able to use your Q Bucks to buy special powers and privileges.

A New Ranking System for Being the Top Fan of your Team

We’ve simplified how you become your favorite team’s top-ranked fan.   Your team rank will now be based on just two statistics, which measure how you are contributing to your team.  We will track your “Contributions” which are your submissions about your teams (comments, articles, etc.) and the “Respect” you receive for these contributions.  “Respect” is Season Two’s version of thumbs up. 

This new ranking system replaces the more complex “Fan Points” system for determining top fans, which today tracks over 30 types of activity.
 
A Better Point System with Weekly Award Winners

We’ve thought long and hard about the best way to reward our top users, and it’s become clear that our points system needs to enable new users to be competitive AND reward long-term users for their diligence and loyalty. 

In Season Two, we’ll track both weekly and career rankings for FanIQ games.  Weekly rankings will enable new users to compete with existing users, and career rankings will showcase long-term excellence from our most dedicated users.

While your “IQ” points accumulated in Season One will still count toward your career rankings in games like trivia, quizzes, pick’em, and polls, Season Two will not have global FanIQ rankings or levels.  For the top-ranked fans from Season One, we’ll award a special “Season One All Star” badge to recognize their contributions and status. 

We’re excited at launching this new and improved season of competition on FanIQ.  We realize that change is always hard but we’re confident that Season Two is a big improvement.   As always, your feedback and questions are welcome below.  For more information about the changes, please visit the FAQs.

Jess, I don't know why, but all of a sudden I feel I should wait with my contributions for the season 2 now since the scores of now will not affect it in any way - but it will give me something to start on immediately in the Part 2 version and get my scores going there sooner with what I save for then now.

I am being frank here - I find it dull now on the Q - I mean only till the Season 2 actually dawns and sees daylight anew.

 Is it response to some "tip " you received, enjoy life now, today, as if there is no tomorrow, take care that there is no need to apologies for tomorrow for today.

Thanks, I´m slowly beginning to see the light................I think

Nope, I´m totally confused now. I just looked at my latest "pick ems" and this is what came up. I got +20 for a wrong score on some. I got +10 for picking the correct winner on others. I also got a +80 for correct winner. And on some others I even got a -50 for a draw.  There is no logical system to this for soccer predictions, why do they apply this silly system to a simple game of win, lose, or draw????? This over/under system is not applicable to soccer games as it distorts the resulting score.
Why not have a system where you score points for a totally correct result. points for a correct score with the right goal difference, and 0 points for getting it wrong? How one can get +points for a totally wrong prediction is beyond me.

 Over/Under = total score of the game.   On the soccer pickems, I believe this is always set at 2.5 total goals.  If the game is ManU at Arsenal, and you pick ManU to win 2-1, you have picked over 2.5 goals.  If the game ends up being a 1-1 draw, you will lose points because you didn't pick the winner, and you picked over goals so you will lose points there also.  If Arsenal wins 3-2, you didn't pick the winner and lose points, but you will gain points because of the over.  I think in this case you will lose overall points because you will lose more points by picking ManU vs gaining points on the over, a net loss.

For the big scoring sports on with spreads, those are produced by casinos in Las Vegas, as are the over/unders.  You can always just pick a winner, and leave the scores empty, if you want credit for picking winners vs. losers, but you would leave points on the table by not picking scores.

Well thanks for your efforts to explain. But its still double dutch to me. What s a under/over mean? Whats a spread?  It still doesn´t make sense. If I pick the right winner I expect positive points. If I get the score spot on I expect big points. If I pick the winner and they win with the same margin as I picked, thats positive too. Thats why I don´t understand why sometimes I get +10 for a correct pick. But a +20 for picking the wrong team.
Soccer is a simple game really, why make the scoring complicated? Who determines the spread, and the under/over? Is it just me being dumb, or are others equally confused?

 Pick Em Scores are based on three things basically:  Winner, Over/Under total points, and sometimes the spread depending on the sport.  Say in an NFL game you picked the loser, but had the over and beat the spread, you would probably have positive points.  Let's say you picked the winner, but missed the spread and the over/under, you would have negative points.  That's the easiest explanation i can think of.  Now go study season 2.

 you may  change the (FanIq) Seasons  but not  the people's scores,  who worked hard to make this site a brighter one. I strongly oppose the proposal idea of 'starting over at ZERO  for SEASON.

It's actually no different than athletes and teams starting over every year if you think about it that way. Sometimes athletes work their butts off to get to where they are, only to start the next season over at 0. And your stats from Season One will be displayed on your profile still - we're just starting anew!

Think of it this way - it gives people who havent been here forever a chance to catch up to those who have. The first day, we're all 0-0...you know what that means - you start with the same record as Scott! :)

As I said though - your stats from this season will show up on your profile.

The only thing I am concerned/confused about is this: "Season Two will not have global FanIQ rankings or levels."

Can anyone elaborate on this? I am concerned that the progress I have made in my FanIQ "career" will be lost.

There will be a place on your profile that will show how many Q Bucks you have, how much Respect you have (total) and then how many contributions you've made...something along those lines.

You'll be also able to see all of your Season 2 stats broken down as well as stats for the current week. (Rank in each favorite team, total respect, and contributions)

But overall I think this sounds awesome, I'm betting (pun intended) that people will LOVE the live "real" competition, and I'm kind of glad for a new team ranking system since the way it is now I'm forever going to be #2 for the Rockies behind Sparty.

First of all Sadmar, you will ALWAYS be an individual fan/member on the Q.  No one can take your place. 

The teams are all the sports teams you chose as your favorites.  For instance, I am a Padre fan (I know, none of you were aware of this *giggle*) for baseball;  I am a Dodgers fan for baseball also when my Padres no longer are in the running *sigh*.  I am a Chargers fan for football.  I am a Lakers fan for basketball. 

I'm guessing you have a favorite Cricket team, Soccer team and I'm not sure which others you may have chosen.  (If you haven't picked any favorite teams or need help picking teams or figuring out how to get your favorite team on your page, let me know.)   If you make quizzes, trivia, comments, write articles, provide Hot Links, etc., you get points towards your ranking in the fan group of your fellow members (those who have chosen the same favorite team as you), working towards being the #1 Fan for your team.  Example:  I am the #1 Padre fan.  Bad ole kteach stole my #1 spot (Way to go girl ya lil stinker you!) while I was out sick so now I'm #2.  Each time I make a comment about one of my teams on the team pages, or on my profile page for example I get *points* for commenting on my teams.

With all the people on the Q, there is a little competition between those of us choosing to root for the same teams.  So far we haven't had to hurt each other hardly at all - joking, we have lots of fun with it.

I hope this helps to explain it so you will gain a better understanding.  If there is more I can do to help, you know how to reach me. 

Also, any questions you have can be referred to Jess's poll regarding all these new changes, so be sure to check it out.  There are also Frequently Asked Questions on the HELP page available at the bottom of any page on the Q.   Link for Jess's Poll

PS - That goes for any of you!  We'll all be on a learning curve here for a while as we learn together, but if I don't know, I know how to find out .  Any of the other Mods will also be glad to help you.  Good luck and I'm looking forward to all the new fun!

That was indeed very helpful and very aptly worded, Seal.  It made simple reading and was at the same time quite interesting too.  Your pun and jokes (as you called them in your above explanation) have actually made it more easier to understand what you were getting at and also to read somewhat between the lines.

as with any changes, in whatever(form) or wherever(from), at first, there will be apprehension. but later on as one gets accutomed to, he/she will shed apprehension. and will start to embrace the change. so bring on the change guys and start the ball rollin'. LET'S ALL PLAY FANTASY!

Seems challenging, but nevertheless ready for the same.

This sounds like great fun!  I amost made 30..*sigh*.   Guess now, I will finally learn fantasy sports.   Any tutors available?  Thanks Ty and all you great techs and developers and anyone involved I forgot, for all the hard work!  Did I see next Weds as a possible start date?  Is this in time for the World Series?

Now... trying not to rain on the parade, but I need to let you know that in the new FAQs for Season 2, question #3 is missing the end of the sentence..

Is this real CASH we're talking about here? or Q-bux Cash?

Well, it is very exciting and look forward to take the challenge.  FANIQ deserves quodos for planning such a season and undoubtedly the stature in the hearts of FANIQ members stands multiplied umpteen times.  Hats off for a wise decision which gladens the hearts of all sports lovers at FANIQ.

 I think its not a good idea to drop Global Faniq rankings/levels
From which level or  ranking you are planning to award    "Season one all star ' badges?

welcome to fantasy games!

I'm relatively new here...just starting to get through the whole site, but the changes sound good to me as well

Our countryman who became the Int'l President of Lions International said "CHALLENGE TO CHANGE". Barack Obama said "CHANGE - WE NEED". I wish that Change to the next generation with new innovative ideas is a great Challenge that We Need. Change should to be a continuous process and I see that you have introduced a cash prize system as I suggested and it's welcome. Go ahead and Good Luck!

10/21/09   |   Heyhey1970   |   194 respect

I can't wait.  The idea to intensify the "competition" piece is awesome.  Since he's about to lose half of his real life bucks to his ex-wife, Steve Phillips surely desires Q Bucks.
