Most Asked Questions
Is there a platform for all START7 managers?
Yes, a dedicated server has been set up on the Discord platform for this purpose, which anyone interested can simply join. There are various categories on the server with different channels in which every manager can talk to other handball fans about the Fantasy Manager or their own club.

How does START7 calculate its points?
The points development is based on the performance data of your players from reality. The basis for calculating the points awarded to the individual players is the Handball Performance Index, or more precisely the HPI points. For each match action during a match, your players receive minus and plus points, which determine the amount of your bonus at the end of a match day. The more HPI points a player has collected, the better his performance was in the match. For the calculation, we use 25 statistical values (performance and position data) for each player in the LIQUI MOLY HBL, which we collect together with our data service providers.
Unlike the HPI points, where the starting value is between 50 an 100, the point calculation for START7 starts at 0.
You can find more information about the HPI here.
For which match actions on match day do my players get how many points?
The weighting and classification of the individual game actions is different for goalkeepers and field players.
|Type||Points save||Points goal against|
|6 meters center||8||-2|
|6 meters left/right||8||-2|
|9 meters center||7||-3|
|9 meters left/right||7||-3|
|Direct free throw||5||-5|
|Type||Points goal||Points assist||Points throw off|
|6 meters center||6||4||-7|
|6 meters left/right||7||3||-7|
|9 meters center||10||0||-4|
|9 meters left/right||10||0||-4|
|Direct free throw||10||0||-1|
How are the market values of the players determined?
The market values of players are calculated based on supply and demand within the app. If the player is sold in an above-average number of leagues at a price below his market value, his market value decreases. If, on the other hand, he is bought more often than average at a price above his market value, his market value increases. Our market values are updated once a day around midnight, so that there is always a current daily price for each player.
How does the transfer market work?
On the transfer market, you can sell your players or buy more players for your squad. To buy a player, you simply place a bid for him. The offering manager will then receive a notification and can accept or reject your offer.
If you want to sell a player, select him in the transfer market screen via the plus symbol. You can enter your desired price for the player there, as well as the duration for which the player is to be offered on the transfer market. As soon as the player is on the transfer market, START7 will make you an offer for the player after some time. The other managers in your league can also make offers for your player via the transfer market. If you like an offer, you can accept it immediately and the player will then be transferred to your squad.
Further explanations of the transfer logic can be found in the game rules.
