ETH Thresholds Update

2022-05-20

Hi Managers,
ETH Thresholds Update
In our Community Event, we announced our plans to peg ETH thresholds to a dollar value in August.
To mitigate Ethereum’s recent volatility and to improve our community’s SO5 experience, we are accelerating our plans to peg ETH thresholds and with a temporary bonus!
Starting Game Week 272, Managers who hit ETH thresholds will receive:

When 0.01 ETH is less than $25 in value
- 205 point threshold will offer $25 worth of ETH
- 250 point threshold will offer $50 worth of ETH
However, if 0.01 ETH is valued at $25 or more we will not peg the ETH value back to a $25 value.
When 0.01 ETH = more than $25
- 205 point threshold will offer 0.01 ETH
- 250 point threshold will offer 0.02 ETH
What does this mean?
For the next two months, you will always earn a minimum of $25 for hitting thresholds and sometimes more! If 0.01 ETH is more valuable than $25 we will not peg back the value. This means that Sorare Managers will not be impacted by decreases in the value of ETH and will benefit if the value of ETH increases.
Locking ETH rewards to a dollar amount ensures we can continue to grow in a healthy and sustainable way. Once the European football season returns in August, we will follow our initial plan of pegging rewards to $25 and $50 for hitting 205 and 250 points.

Daylight Savings - GW256 / 257 ⏰

2022-03-24

Hi Managers,
Central European Time & Daylight Savings
For those of you who may not know, our Game Week calendar follows the CET daylight savings calendar. 
On Sunday March 27th, Central European Time (CET) will move to Central European Summer Time (CEST). 🌞
As a result the clocks will go forward 1 hour for everyone living in that time zone.
What does this mean for Game Week 256 and Game Week 257?
As published, Game Week 256 will close at 13:00 CEST. All fixtures that kick-off before 13:00 CEST on Tuesday 29th will be included in Game Week 256.
This includes the Japan vs Vietnam fixture at 12:35pm CEST on Tuesday.
Game Week 257 will be one hour shorter. It starts on Tuesday at 13:00 CEST and ends on Friday at 12:00 CEST.
If you have any further questions on the changing clocks, please contact us through our Help Center.

Game Week 252 Update

2022-03-17

 Hi Managers,
Thanks for your patience with our closing of Game Week 252. Below you will find details on how scoring will be resolved. Our goal is to always have accurate and complete stats for every fixture. Although rare, there are sometimes issues outside of our control that impact our ability to receive stats. Unfortunately, this was the case for the Daegu FC and Ulsan Hyundai FC’s AFC Champions League fixtures.
For every player that featured in the Ulsan & Daegu fixture we will apply the following rule:
40 points to players who played 60 or more minutes
20 points to players who played fewer than 60 minutes
0 to those who didn’t play
The 40 - 20 point scoring is from our existing fall-back system solution. You can find out more about it in our Reddit post.
We have also published a Help Centre article that explains our rule in more detail. 
 
Thanks for your patience and sorry for the delay. Good luck in Game Week 253! ⚽



Game Week 252 delay ⚠️

2022-03-15

Hi Managers,
Opta faced technical issues which affected their coverage of the Daegu FC, Vissel Kobe and Ulsan Hyundai FC ACL Champions League fixtures. 
We will keep Game Week 252 open until we have more information from Opta. We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience. 
Thanks,
The Sorare Team 



Special Weekly 250 Update ⚽

2022-03-02

Hi Managers,
Game Week 250 - Special Weekly and L5 issue ⚽
We are invalidating lineups that were submitted to Special Weekly 250 before the last 5 average score for players was updated with their GW248 scores.  
We want the rules to work as intended and we want the competition to be fair for everyone involved. All future Underdog Special Weekly team submissions will follow the same rules. 
Managers will only be able to submit their teams once the L5 average score is updated. We are working on a long term solution so that L5 average scores update more quickly. We're sorry for the inconvenience we have caused managers who got their teams in early. 
Thanks,
The Sorare Team
