FOR THE OFFICIAL BEGINNING OF THE ICON GAMES Finals Game World

FOREWORD

The first game world ‘event’ of 2013 is finally upon us. Once again, ultimately we will be looking for just one winner. This time though I will need more forumers to take sides than I have ever asked for before. This new concept has been in development for many months now and will not only be the biggest concept I have undertaken, but the biggest concept in the history of game world creation.

This new concept is ‘icongamessmall.png’…

The International Championship Of Nations (ICON) Games is a revolutionary new concept for Custom Game World creation. Ultimately it is very similar and perhaps the closest game world concept we could ever get to The World Cup.

The ICON Games will be made up of an unprecedented 6 (yes, SIX!) Game Worlds ranging from Qualifying to the Finals where we will crown our overall winner.

I have scoured the SM database and found the most suitable 60 Nations in the World to take part in a competition that will yield just one winner but all 60 Nations will have equal opportunity to be that winner.

The 60 Nations will be represented by a club from that Nation; the club will start with an empty squad and will ONLY be able to purchase players from that Nation.

Each Club has an equal rated pool of players to choose from because the ratings cap across the entire concept will be 80. This ratings cap is to be implemented to keep the playing field of ALL Nations balanced throughout the entirety of the game play. Once a player gets a rise taking him above the 80 ratings cap, he must be sold on. When a player is rated above 80, he is NOT PERMITTED to play any part of a match ,including being on the bench. If a player is 'Transfer Banned' when they rise, they are not permitted to be a part of the match day squad until they are off their transfer ban at which point they must be sold.

ALL Clubs in The ICON Games will ALWAYS have an equal opportunity of success and theoretically shouldn’t ever get left behind. The main reason for success or lack thereof will be down to the individual manger and their chosen tactics.

Ultimately the winner of The ICON Games will be the Nation of the Club that progresses through as one of four qualifiers from their Qualifying Game World, and then wins the Finals Game World – World ICON.

The 60 Nations will be divided up into 5 World Sectors of 12 Nations.

The World Sector Qualifying Game Worlds will simultaneously run for 4 seasons each with 4 Nations qualifying from each Qualifying Sector.

I will be governing one of the Qualifying Sectors, I have drafted in 4 other creators to govern the other 4 Sectors. Each ‘Governor’ will have the exclusive decision as to how the 4 Qualifying Nations will be decided. These are the four options are available to them -

1. The highest placed Nation (not previously qualified) qualifies for World ICON.

In this option, the winners of the league in the Sector each season will automatically qualify for the World ICON Finals. If a Nation wins the league that has previously qualified, then the next highest placed Nation not yet to qualify will be given the qualification place.

2. Top 4 of an overall points system qualify for World ICON.

In this option, at the end of the 4th season, the points tallies from all 4 seasons are added up and the 4 Nations that have accumulated the biggest amount of points from the entirety qualify for World ICON.

3. Only the League winners automatically qualify for a place in World ICON. Then an overall Points system is used to determine the remaining places.

In this option, if you win the league in one of the 4 seasons in your qualifying Sector Game World, you automatically qualify for World ICON. If a team that has already qualified for World ICON wins the league again, then no one automatically qualifies that season. If this happens, then at the end of Season 4, there will be less than 4 automatic qualifiers. To decide the remaining qualifiers to World ICON, the overall points system comes into play. The Nation that accumulated the highest amount of points across all four season that has not yet qualified, gets the remaining qualifying places.

4. Governors Points based system.

In this option, the Governor of each World Sector can create their own clearly indicated, and displayed before creation of the GWs. A Governor can come up with any format of how he will reward points. For example maybe 1 point for last place, with staggered amounts of points being given the higher placed you finish in each league campaign. Maybe more points issued for Cup successes or SMFA competition successes.. Possibly point even could be awarded for having the player of the season. For example, Highest Average Rating (must have played at least 75% of league matches) gets 2 extra points. Top goal scorer, most assists, most man of the match awards etc. Governors must firstly run their ideas through me before this option can be cemented in.

Whichever of the 4 options above is going to be used for each sector must be indicated to me by the governor of each Sector before any of the Qualifying Sector GWs are created. Once the game worlds have been created, the option that was chosen will be permanent for the duration of the 4 seasons and cannot be changed.

World ICON will be made up of the Final 20 Nations that came through their Qualifying Game Worlds.

NOTE: The Nations involved in each World Sector will be revealed and detailed in subsequent posts.

1,000 SM Credits for Qualification to World ICON. Credits payable at the end of the 4th season and are null and void if the winning manager is not still the manager at the end of the 4th season.

10,000 SM Credits to the Winner of The ICON Games. The full amount will only be paid if the same manager has taken his Nation from the beginning of the Qualifying GW to the title of World ICON.

iconconclusion.png

So there you have it, all prepped and ready to go. Be sure to look out for the subsequent posts to this one where the Nations and Clubs representing those Nations will be revealed.

This is a real opportunity for some lesser known, yet great, managers here on the forum to get noticed and make a name for themselves with the more established.

Please post your interest here on this thread and also your in-game name.

As of yet, teams will not be handed out but feel free to mention your most desired Nations.

I still have to discuss with my fellow Governors how we are going to assign the teams to the managers. Remember though, all Nations will always be rated equal as ALL Nations have a good pool of players rated at up to 80 which is what The ICON Games requires. No one Nation should ever have an advantage over any other in terms of player ratings.

Any questions, suggestions, or tips on how to improve the idea are also greatly received and considered.

Re: THE ICON GAMES - The World Is Watching

This post will be populated as time progresses.

As the 20 Nations that qualify from their Qualifying Sectors and are confirmed to be a part of World ICON they will be added here.

argentinabanner.png

ARGENTINA

Rosario Central

Qualified on June 9th 2013

as winners of the Season 1 ICON New World Sector league title.

Manager : Ghora

austriabanner.png

AUSTRIA*

SK Austria

Manager : Dai Smout

*Austria qualified as the Southern European Sector Season One winner even though they finished in Second place.

The actual winners were Portugal managed by Gusma (Gasper Senka) who was forced to withdraw from the ICON Games due to personal commitments.

As the rules to the Southern European Sector had stated from the beginning. any withdrawals would see that Nation withdrawn and replaced with the next highest Nation in that respective Season.

CHILE

Colo Colo

Manager : sonofpluto

Qualified on September 12th 2013

as winners of the Season 2 ICON New World Sector league title.

russiabanner.png

RUSSIA

Krylia Sovetov

Qualified on June 13th 2013

as winners of the Season 1 ICON Australasian Sector league title.

Manager : Iano Ludz

southkoreabanner.png

SOUTH KOREA

Jeonbuk Motors

Manager : VatreniUnited

Qualified on September 12th 2013

as winners of the Season 2 ICON Australasian Sector league title.

  • ICON Austalasian, New World, and Southern European Sector's all automatically issue one of their four qualifying places to any Nation that wins a league title.

  • In the event that a Nation wins a league title but had already previously qualified

- the Australasian and New World sector's both give the place to the highest ranked non qualifier after a full four season points table.

- the Southern European sector gives the qualifying place to the next highest finishing Nation in that specific season.

  • Both the ICON African and Northern European Sectors will have their 4 representatives confirmed towards the end of the fourth season as all four seasons are compiled into a points system to decide who advances into WORLD ICON.

Thank you for the compliment Dermo.....that was me at my most eloquent. :D

Nice to have you in this set-up really is going to be epic.

Sunday night I will draw up a list of managers for when Gorbash comes back online. Due to being henpecked he is not allowed on over the weekend and his missus puts him back in his cage until Monday as well. :P
