We absolutely slaughtered the opposition to win a GOLD trophy in the first week, and moved quickly from the Rookie League (everyone started there) to the Novice League where we can do 6 free tasks if we want to, and buy a 7th one. Of course some of us have gone crazy doing extra tasks, just for the challenge!!!!!!
It will probably take a while for the neighbourhoods to settle into the appropriate league levels, but we think the future outcome should mean we play against other hoods who are about the same as us....we will wait and see.
One of the most useful new Derby features is the ability to Opt Out of Derby - this is going to be really useful for everyone - when you go on vacation, or if you have a busy week coming up - or maybe you just need a little break from the pressure of Derby for a while. The tricky bit is knowing BEFORE the Derby starts - when you Opt Out, its from the start of the NEXT Derby - it doesn't affect the current one. And of course you have to Opt back in again when you're ready to play Derby. A new TIP has been added to help you with this feature. A few FAFF members have already tried it out with great success, and benefit to the neighbourhood too.
The other new Derby feature that has been very interesting is the ability for everyone to see how all the FAFF Derby players are going with their tasks and points. This is a great way to keep everyone honest, and as a side benefit it has sparked a bit of lively competition to see who finishes with the most points every week!!!! So....we have added an HONOURS BOARD.....with the highest points scorer for that week added to the Board........is your name there?
Don't forget you can add a comment if you want to.......
