I check this site occasionally for Viggle info and you guys help me out a lot. I noticed no one had posted a sound clip for last night's Celebrity Ghost Stories. I don't have a sound clip, but this video worked for me.

Would you mind telling me step by step? I could not find transfer fund option anywhere. the only transfer thing is prescription.... Thanks

I can no longer find it on the account screen now myself. It used to be there on the my account screen. I will call on Monday and see what the new process is for adding egifts to your account as I know we have done so before. In fact for my birthday my wife got me a 50 dollar cvs card and I am sure I remember adding it to my regular acct as well. Will let you know what they say on Monday

As my guy is about to start I would like to offer some tips to winning.

If you're like me and play on multiple devices, the biggest tip I can give is to stagger your entries.
I start the game from the beginning with one device, accumulate a lead, generally most lose interest (which you can tell by checking the Leaserboard and noticing they aren't changing player chosen).
At the point the lead is easy to increase, if no one else is actively playing against you, just play defense.
Until your defense gets in to their red zone, switch to the running back with the QB selected, don't hit confirm until needed.

Once you get a 400 point lead, enter the game with another device, preferably during a commercial, AFTER the last play has been credited so you don't start in the hole from someone whose device connected a bit faster and got credit for the last play.

Repeat this method for as many devices you have, I play with four.
Out of laziness, and to make things easier, I used to add my last device in the final 2 minutes of the game.
However, recently, this has become a crapshoot. Sometimes, my guy doesn't let me connect with that little time remaining so I enter with at least 4 minutes remaining.

***Remember, if you're in first on two devices and in third place on one, be sure to maintain your first place leads as a priority. Don't let your attention be swayed to trying to win with the third place device and lose your locked 1,000 point wins.***


Now a few small tips that have helped me in the general playing of the game.

1. Kickoffs and punts are VERY IMPORTANT.
Return yards can be HUGE points for you but you need to pay attention to the kicker/situation.
If it is a punt and the kicker is near the 50, choose the punter.
If it goes out of the end zone, out of bounds, or if the returner just let's it bounce, the return team gets ZERO points but the punter gets points (remember, you have to choose the actual punter/kicker and not that teams Defense/"special teams". Conversely, you don't choose the actual person returning the ball, you choose "Defense/Special Teams".)

If the punter is on his own 35 or back then choose the return team.

On knockoffs, you have to know the kicker. Guys like Janikowski boom the ball and there are no returns.
But most often it is best to choose the return team.

2. The safe bet is to always have the defense set as your choice, while being safe, you will rarely be #1.
One defensive tackle is worth 5 (not in the bonus) one 3 yard rumor reception is worth 6.
Do the math. Wink
In the obvious running situations, I choose the RB.

3. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER START A PLAY WITH THE QB CHOSEN!!!
Almost all results are negative or not worth it.
Incomplete pass = broken streak -10 pts.
Sack = broken streak and negative points.
10 yard pass = 5 whole points whereas the tackle on the pass = 5 points without the aforementioned risks.

The only time I use a QB is close to the goal line.
I will have the starting running back as my player.
I will be on the players page, I will have clicked on the QB but have NOT clicked "Confirm".
If the QB does throw a touchdown, as SOON as the receiver looks to have made the reception, immediately click confirm.
You will get the td.

***side note, as soon as a touchdown occurs (unless it looks like it is going to be reviewed) wait 8-10 seconds and then select the kicker so you get the extra point credit too.

These tips are some of the easy keys to separate you from the pack to victory.

There is one other tip, and this is by far THE BIGGEST.
If at all possible, watch-the-game-in-lo def. Not in hi definition.
The reason is that the high definition broadcasts are SEVEN SECONDS behind lo def broadcasts.
This lag prevents you from choosing a player doing something good in MID PLAY and getting credit for it most of the time.


Hope this helps.

THanks for the GREAT tips...

The only thing i'm unclear about is the blue button? when is the best time to press it to change player... at times it changes instantly and others it switches back and forth and i loseFrown

I think there is way less lag with BB because less people are playing it. The games are not searchable by team names like the FB ones are so they are not as easy to find unless you know how to do it.

Most of this was posted days ago on my guide which is in the myguy faq on the wiki. other than one new paragraph this poster added, its a basic copy of a guide we already have. copying someone elses work just to get rep as a new user is kinda retarded

Basic Success Guide for MyGuy(football) (by Viglodite)

First you need to decide which type of style you wish to play. The two types are "set it and forget it" and "watch and play." Before you get into any myguy game, take into account the amount of time you actually have to commit to watching the game. If you have to leave for work or have something to do during game time, then the set and forget method is for you. If it is a game you plan to watch in entirety anyways, then by all means play the watch and play style. The choice is up to you and I will cover some success tactics for both.

"Set it and forget it"

Set it and forget it is just like it sounds. You pick a player after you have activated MyGuy and then you go off about your business and pray when you return that you have won some points. This can be very profitable for those that have time constraints. Here are the ways that I personally maximize this type of style.

1. Do some quick research. Check yahoo sports and see who the hot player is. Look at the game tab on yahoo sports and select play by play. See who has scored well individually during the part of the game that took place before you joined.

2. NEVER EVER join MyGuy before the initial kickoff if playing set it and forget it. You will seldomely win by doing so as most people who plan to use the watch and play style check in then so your chances are slim of catching the 2-4k points they will get during the game.

3. Pick a time to join AFTER someone has scored a field goal or touchdown. This stops you from being a victim of the lag monster and losing valuable early points to someone who got in before the extra point with a super fast connection, allowing them to pick the player who just scored.

4. NEVER choose any defense when using set and forget style of play. Defenses get penalties. Penalties stop your streak. Ended streaks cost you double point possibilities and basically destroy any chances of coming in first or second.

5. Never pick a quarterback. Same reasons as above with the added destruction of points that come from incomplete passes or sacks.

6. The best time to start a set it and forget MyGuy game is about 3 minutes before the third quarter ends. As long as you start the game with at least ten players you will be awarded full points for the win. Starting a game with any less than 10 players will award a reduced point value.

7. Find out who the field goal kicker is. They do not get penalties except on extremely rare instances. A field goal is worth 60 points, 120 if streaking(3 correct plays in a row). Extra points are worth 20, 40 if streaking. If a team is losing badly but has had 5 field goals made already going into the fourth quarter, then its a good chance they will be forced to kick more of them. You may even get lucky to have picked a kicker who does the kicking trifecta as I call it. This is a player who is responsible for field goals, kickoffs and punts. This player will make you a ton of points. I have always had the BEST experiences with choosing the most used kicker when playing set it and forget it.

8. If multiple games are being played, as during the playoffs or on any bowl week, enter the MyGuy for each one and make your picks. Playing multiple games at once is very easy using set it and forget it and also usually very profitable.

"Watch And Play"

This style is best for those who wish to have constant control of the outcome of points playing MyGuy. this is also for those whom wish to enjoy watching along the entire game. These few tips will help you place in the rankings each and every time.

1. Join time: It is ideal to join a watch and play MyGuy session about 5 minutes into the game. This helps you weed out all of the would be attackers that join on game start. Joining at the very beginning of the game can be done but takes full concentration and the competition is more fierce.Dont do it.

2. Pay attention to the initial kick off at start of the game. I say this so that you will remember to write down who kicked off and who got the ball first. This also usually helps you get some extra points at the start of the second half because you will already know which player is kicking off and which player or team will be receiving. This is valuable information points wise and many times gives you that one play needed edge to overtake that guy in first place who has been ahead of you all game by 20 points.

3. The Lag Monster: Lets face it, it is going to happen. Adrian Peterson just scored a big 65 yard run while you had the Green Bay defense picked as your player. You quickly rush and mash to switch to Peterson. You arent fast enough or your net connection isnt fast enough, or, and this is most common, the game server isnt as fast as you are. Be careful with this because if the game awards for Petersons run and THEN it switches your player, you will basically become 2 plays behind while trying to judge the time of the game server. This can be extremely costly, especially in close knit games between you and the other players. Use the previous speed of the game server to decide if you should or shouldnt switch to Peterson real quick. remember you dont need all of the big plays to win at MyGuy. You just need the right plays. Huge difference.

4. Quarterbacks: The only advice I can give about picking quarterbacks is be very careful. They have hot and cold streaks during every game. It wouldnt make sense to see Aaron Rodgers complete 4 passes in a row and it happens alot. Picking him now though would be a huge mistake. Having completed his last 4 attempts now makes the odds greater that he will throw an incomplete pass. Play probable odds when choosing quarterbacks. they arent always the best choice as if they get sacked, get a delay of game, throw an incomplete pass, your streak ends and you lose valuable double point streak status immediately.

5: Defenses: Pretty much the same rules as quarterbacks. Dont leave it on a defense for too long. Penalties WILL happen and cost you streaks. See tip 7 below to learn how to combat a penalty or any play that will suddenly end your streak.

6: Running backs: Some of the best points can be attained by having running backs picked. If you have a streak going and a running back picked, let us assume that most runs from scrimage will be at least three yards. 3 yards pays you 12 points(3 yards at 2 points per yard and doubled). These 12 points just gave you a slight edge on your opponent who is getting 10 points for every defensive tackle. Be aware that anytime a RB is stopped behind the line of scrimage, you will lose points as well as ending any streak you have going. Learn how to prevent this in step 7 below.

7: Being sneaky, keeping the streak alive: After you have chosen a player for any particular play, que up another player and have it ready so all you have to do is push accept. If you have the defense picked and they get a sudden penalty, using this tactic will allow you to quickly take it off the defense before the penalty hits and ends your streak. You should ALWAYS have a player qued up and ready to go in. this works well with quarterbacks, defenses, and running backs.

8: Think on your FEET: Kickers can provide what I consider the best possible and most reliable points during any MyGuy session. Learn right away which kicker is responsible for what duty. Be it field goals, punting, extra points, or kick offs. Know them for both teams. Have them qued up and ready to go immediately after any touch down is scored. This way you will have hopefully caught the points for the touchdown and also for the extra points. Most people playing are only able to get one or the other. I use my que tactic like a religion and it almost always works well. If you do happen to miss the extra point score after you have picked the kicker, do not be upset. Leave him in, you will still get the points for the insuing kickoff he is usually about to do.

9 Kick offs: Here you have only two options for what to pick. the actual kicker or the opposing defense. I have watched numerous people select the guy on defense that is returning the ball. This is pointless and awards zero points even if he gets crazy and does a 70 yard return. You must pick the defense in order to get credit for that play this way. Unless you have witnessed a Deion Sanders type punt or kick off returner just going crazy all day, choosing the kicker is the best option on kickoffs. Special teams or defenses as they are listed are prone to many penalties on kick offs and punt returns. These penalties will again end any streak you may have going. However if you have the kicker picked and his team commits a penalty on the kick off, you are not penalized unless it was actually the kicker who caused the penalty, which almost never happens. Kick offs and punt returns are where the real money is. Playing these correctly and smart will usually mean the difference between a first and a second place finish.

10 Keep your cool: Never panic if you choose wrong or do not catch a player in time to get the points for any play. Getting into a panic will almost always set you back a few plays and many needed points as you try and play catch up. Keep your wits and shrug it off and move on to the next play. Nothing worse than trying to catch up with the server on the next three plays, failing to do so, and watching the guy above you pull away even further. Never try and second guess your own choice.

11. Ads: If you are lucky enough to see them during MyGuy, you have an important choice to make now. Ok great they are guaranteed points. BUT they can cause you to lose out on a play because you were busy watching the ad. Whenever I am close in points to the next player above me, I will usually skip the ad or get it from the scrolling game bar up top. I NEVER watch any ad during MyGuy by using the one that pops up in the middle of your screen. I always use the one on the scroll bar and only do so after I have my next player picked. The only time this does not apply is if the ad is followed by a TV time out or commercial.

12 Down to the wire, the end game: You have played like a true NFL coach for the entire game. There are 4 minutes left on the clock. You are so close to that 1k points that you can taste it. You are sitting in first place and the second place guy has been closing in on you for the last 2 minutes. Now is the time for discipline and poise. Slow down. Take your time and let the other guy play your game for you. what we mean by this is stop making your own choices at this point. Instead now your main goal becomes picking the players that the guy below you has. Remember you arent awarded points based on how badly you beat the other guy, but only that you did in fact beat him. Picking a mirror to his picks means he cannot gain any additonal points on you that you will not also get yourself. I cannot stress this enough. I have watched people in second place not use this trick and try to catch the first place guy. More times than not, they end up over playing and will mostly fall to third due to a stupid mistake.

13. "You mad?", smacktalk feature: Simply put, stay off of smacktalk. End of story. All it does is upset you, It will usually cost you a few plays as you are trying to out trash talk the other guy. So you have accomplished nothing. I cannot be more blunt about this.

I checked into this last night but never go the bonus pts. Never got pts for my guy either. Really strange I'm not over watch hrs or max pts. I did have lots of trouble with my guys yesterday. Kept giving me connection errors. But it showed I was in top 4 in a couple of them. Wish viggle would get all the bugs out.

Not everyone reads the wiki first. It is way too long, for one thing. The reason the posts match is because everyone pretty much uses that strategy. MyGuy is not rocket science.

Being a jerk because someone else did the same thing you did is retarded. I'm sure a lot of people were already using the "strategy" before you even posted it, and you don't see us saying "Hey, those are my techniques! He stole them!".

I think this depends on your provider and/or equipment. I have DirecTV, and my old DTV Tivo (non-HD) broadcast is a second behind the HD broadcast on my HD receiver (HR22). Cable might be different. OTA would probably be the best way to watch if the game is on one of the national networks.

Not always true. It depends on your provider/TV/connection, etc. High definition is almost always faster for me.

I agree with you. When it comes to MyGuy there are no set-in-stone-sure-fire strategies. I read that whole thing & disagreed with many of those tips. I've had 1st place finishes by playing just the quarterback, or just playing the defense. Its all guesswork. Playing the kicker only seems to work for college games(i may be wrong, but it seems they do kick more). To come on here & get angry because someone stole your tips is insane. Everyone plays MyGuy different. Yet everyone does something from your list of tips (i do) abd probably figured it out themselves (i did). Also, my nephew has down syndrome, can we lay off the use of "retard". Nobody uses strong language here, why should they use that word. Thanks.

while i agree with what you wrote, making word for word posts of another is what i was saying was retarded. and you are no diff by saying im a jerk. this isnt the first time someone new has copied stuff from the wiki just to gain rep. moving on.....

So I won first place and scored 3048 and got the message "Game over 0th place You didn't rank high enough to earn any Viggle points this game. Better luck next time"


Just got the 1000 points....I was worried!
