A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012)

Recommended Posts

A Nation’s Pride

XCUJT.jpg

Prologue:

Football is like performing magic with one’s feet. Deceiving yet witty, elegant yet robust.

It is God’s gift for a nation to produce and groom the best talents in the game. A top talent is the pride of a nation and envy to others.

As the clock ticks closer to the end of the world, major footballing nations cross swords in the biggest competition in history to claim the kings of football. This competition is known as A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012).

Countries send their most influential clubs into the competition with only one goal in mind, to finish at the top of the world. In ANP 2012, behemoth clubs from all parts of the world will clash to vie for mankind’s final glory.

Game Rules:

Each team gets to pick 1 top talent at the start of the game, the player must be of your club’s nationality. You will then build your team around this player. (Teams must sign up their chosen one. Do not sign a player that belongs to another club!)

Season 1, clubs can make signings freely from any nation to build their initial squad.

Season 2 onwards (on alternate seasons), clubs can only buy players with the same nationality as the club.

12 teams x 2 divisions

3 Promotion, 3 Relegation

Player Concerns – On

Economy Level – Strong

Every team starts with an empty squad and £250M.

No buying from Unmanaged Clubs.

No Transfer Window. Transfers can take place at anytime throughout the season.

Login period – 21 days.

Every team must sign up at least 21 players before the first league game to fulfill minimum squad (during the pre-season period). That will give an average cost per player of £11.9M (£250M/21). Teams have to be careful & tactical with their money and spend them wisely.

All teams will start bidding only after every manager has taken up their teams.

Looking for:

ANP welcomes Active, Friendly, Patient, Committed, Passionate and Matured players.

Strong coordination and harmonization among players is required to make this fun for everybody.

Priority will be given to friends and well-established forumers who follow game rules. Participants need to have a SM forum account with PM/VM enabled.

Tourists and players who are looking for only a short run should not express interest for the league. Thank you for your understanding.

When expressing interest, do confirm your participation, no maybes or withdrawing. Please provide your preferred clubs and SM Game nick too as I’ll add you for invitation if there is a club available.

Cheaters or rule breakers will be reported to SM and removed from the game.

Re: A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012)

Mate about time too see you putting this up.

Put me down as

- Barcelona and you can do the rest it is one team too a N-T right.

Not one team per nation. That will be too boring and unbalance to weaker nations. Watch my reserved post go poof in a minute. :D

Re: A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012)

So just let me no if this is right:

1: Each team stars with no squad - (Happy with that)

2: Each team gets 250M - (If more then one team per NT should make 300)

3: You can have a number of teams from same nation

4: You pick on name too have I.E Messi!

All these have been addressed in the game rules.

But I'll clarify it again for the benefit of all interested parties. Everyone please spend a little time to go through the first post too.

1. Yes Empty squad for every club at the start.

2. Each team has 250M at the start. I feel it is more suitable than 300M because having every single top player snapped up in first season may cut out a dimension of the game. Even at 250M, it will provide a pretty decent team too if you spend your money wisely. So this game is not just about tactics or player prowess, managing your money and finance is important too.

3. Yea right. Some nations have more, due to the club's popularity and reputation. But I made sure every competing nation have at least 2 representatives.

4. Every club get to pick 1 player of their club's nationality. In order to pick Messi, you have to pick a Argentine club and hope nobody picks him before your club. Top top players from any part of the world will also cost more, but it is good money spend as he belong to you.

---

I maybe sending out PM invitation later in the day. If you know managers of the above qualities (in first post) to recommend, you can inform them about the game and let me know you recommended them. :)

Re: A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012)

So that means after choosing my top player, the rest of the 24 players will be still up to my choosing right? Or players can start bidding for the rest to fufill the requirement of the squad.

Correct me if I am wrong on this but I believe you should be right?

I believe this is the part where it is different from FDL, where after choosing your top players, the rest of the minumum 20 players is up for grab for anyone.

Meaning if you choose to bid for a popular player, most likely you are going to face a wall of bidders who will try to overbid you. But managing the finance is the challenge for the manager to ensure he doesnt overspend for the first season but still be able to build up a reasonable squad to survive or challenge for the title.

In true spirit of this forum.

Hold this helps, mate :D

Masashi Honda as well...but with a rating of 40.

Do I have to pick my star player first since I thought it was by the order given by evoked.

Spot on.

he's still best

i can bring best out of him

also i wil get it as a tough challenge

:D

Excellent pick. Hahaha.

I'll like to inform everyone that although your first player you picked from your nation is important' date=' the overall management of your club and the other signings you will then make could be even more vital.

[b']Updated the Participants post.[/b]

If you haven't got a club then it is most likely because somebody picked earlier.

As for jaison, thank you for your interest, but your SM account looks a bit dubious. Do you have a referee or somebody that can testify yourself? Sorry that I delayed your entry or cause any inconvenience, but it is required to ensure everyone can have a fair and fun competition.

Re: A Nation’s Pride (ANP 2012)

Nice idea mate:D

So after the first season, we can only go for same nationalities as our club, but what if our club's national players are all at managed sides that don't want to sell? Do we have a duty to sell players to their 'rightful' club or not?

Anyway, may have to buy some club slots now:L

I was after a German team but it seems every else is too, so I'll take Marseille I think, in game name is Kieran Hepworth and I'll reserve Benzema:)
