The World Cup - Showdown. Match Reports, General banter and bragging rights thread.


Recommended Posts

Hi and welcome to my newest concept:

THE WORLD CUP - Showdown.

Revisedgif_zps84f0395f.gif?t=1403998368]

Well with the World Cup now firmly under way I was thinking how could I have a World Cup style format and this is what I have come up with.

THE CONCEPT:

● 32 clubs, one from each nation in the World Cup thus representing the real life teams.

● 4 leagues of 8 teams this will be 2 world cup groups merged together to make one league. It is the closest solution I could think of.

● First 4 qualify and then will be entered into a knockout style format via the connect Game World's route.

● All clubs start with original squads and 300 million budget, however each club MUST buy the players selected by there nations for the world cup. Your squads have to mirror those real life squads chosen for the World Cup. So for example Barcelona will represent Spain since they already have many of the Spanish internationals at there disposal so will sell all the players not eligible and purchase the required players. In the event of the 3 player purchases per club rule, adequate replacements will be found. Only 6 nations fall under this category and information is available in the league posts (posts 2-5.) Your club MUST mirror the real life World Cup squads.

The original squads and 300m budget was the only way countries like Spain and Germany amongst others would be able to fulfil the requirements of having world cup squads since it would have cost half the budget just for Ramos, Busquets, Iniesta, Xavi and Pedro.

All players that are required to be sold internally (to managed teams) MUST be sold for chairman's value. This is not about making money since cash will not be an issue, it is about all teams having squads as close to the real life squads already at the World Cup as possible. Please do not offer part/exchange to managed clubs unless those players on offer are in the World Cup.

TEAM ALLOCATION:

It has been decided that the most efficient and fair way forward is to have a full random draw. The draw will be made using random.org.

Re: The World Cup - Showdown.

Put me down as normal m8

:D

-

Some quick thoughts from previous

-

Maybe option one, ive been thinking of a similar gameworld for a while now but hard to sort this to keep it competitive for all teams around the world, so many weaker nations. I felt though if you change that though its not the national feel

-

I also thought about having to play more then 50% of the team needed to be from that nation - ie 6 players / 11 every game

-

The 23 man squad is fine - perhaps you have to have say so many of the players in final world cup squads say 18 and 5 of your own

-

Drafts with each nation allowing one player from another nation, and letting the teams ranked 32nd 31st the first picks

-

GL with it m8, no doubt as your other gameworld great games to be involved in

Thanks for your input mate. I don't really want to go down the route of making the custom a hybrid. I want it to either be option 1 or option 2 and not a combination of both.

Option 2 for me is open to a whole host of problems, managers overspending, not buying sufficient players to cover all positions and end up with 12 forwards and one CB. Yes it is unfortunate that there will be weaker sides but it wouldn't be a World Cup style format if they were all the same.

Option 1 is by far the better option in my opinion, and the key will be to get the real life groups as even as possible. For example it is pointless having more than 3 power nations in one group of 8.

Re: The World Cup - Showdown.

Count me in, Just through the first couple of paragraphs this is a far superior idea to the player performance League ;)

Na in all seriousness sounds half decent, hopefully I get a decent squad and God help whoever gets the sides from Honduras and Iran :o

In all seriousness with some of these lower countries will al there players actually be on the Database???

Only issue I can think of.

I'll get involved to give some points away Matt.

I'm feeling charitable.

Glad to have you both on board' date=' I am the one feeling charitable since you two are both easy picking, (assuming you are in my group.)

Good point Raymondo I will have a quick glance through the lesser Nations though I imagine if they are internationals then they will be on the database. [/font']

Re: The World Cup - Showdown.

I am interested.

however looking at only Spain(not even checking anyone else) Barcelona have 7 players, Atletico Madrid have 4. there is a 3 transfer limit between clubs - so how would that work?

problem solved, the website I looked at still had Villa as a Atletico player

I am having to work my way through the website I have given the link to for the World Cup Squads since I still can't get on SM, which would be less time consuming.
