Now This Is What I Call A Soccer Challenge


Recommended Posts

Hey guys and girls.

First of all i wanna share that this idea has been brought up by 3 other managers and myself. The last week we have spent almost all evening sending pm's on thinking about a gw concept. Ben C (famous for the current Financial Fairplay gw) is the one that helped me working out the first concept. After that i changed a lot around to make it even more challenging. The new concept was again sent to the 3 managers and Elohim (mainly known for his long beard and helpful character :P) helped me to even further evolve this concept. Now for the fun (and long) part....about the gw itself!!! :P

The gameworld we are thinking about will have 3 divisions with a minimum amount of 21 youth players at the age of 21 or younger. There is a maximum to the players you can have in your squad which is a total of 36 players, that is including your youth players. So basically you have to buy 15 players at most next to the above mentioned 21 youth players.

There will also be a youth division and youth cup which we will play by organising friendly matches and i (onomanunn) will keep the scores and rankings up to date in the forum. In the youth division matches only players at the age of 21 or younger are allowed to play. In the youth cup the same rules will apply but with as extra rule that 3 players of 22 and above are allowed to play in the team and on the bench.

When a team gets demoted (3 teams per season and per division) a penalty is given to the demoted teams by way of having to sell players above a certain rating and with that the teams that get demoted need to buy lower level players to fill their team again. When we are thinking of the 3 divisions we are thinking about a rating cap of 87 for Divison 3 and a rating cap of 89 for Division 2. Division 1 has no caps at all when it comes to ratings. For example when a team from Division 1 gets demoted the manager must sell all the players with a rating of 90 and above. Another example is when a team gets demoted from Division 2 to Division 3 the manager of the demoted team must sell all players with a rating above 87.

When a team gets demoted they must sell their players above the respective caps for the divisions, by offering the players in the forum by adding a post to the forum thread that will be made for this gw. Every human manager is allowed to make a bid on the players as long as they comply to the rating rules of the division that human manager plays in, with the exception of when a manager achieves certain goals, more on that later. If no team is interested in the players offered, then after 2 days the selling team has to sell their players to an external or unmanaged team before the new season starts. If the team has failed to sell the players above the rating cap for the division they will play in when the new season starts, the respective players that have too high of a rating for that division will not be allowed to play at all!!! And on top of that when the players are not sold they still do count to the maximum squad of 36. So selling will be very important when you get demoted.

Of course there is also a bonus system for the teams that won't get demoted and/or achieve certain goals in a season.

The goals are:

Win the division

Prize: Buy one player of any human manager without getting rejected.

Win the cup

Prize: Buy one player with a rating of maximum 89 of any human manager without getting rejected

Winning the youth division

Prize: Buy one youth player (age must be under 21) of any human manager without getting rejected.

Winning the youth cup

Prize: Buy one youth player (age must be under 21) with a rating of max. 87 of any human manager without getting rejected.

Best attack (most goals scored) of the season

Prize: Buy one attacker of any lower division team with a maximum of the rating cap, the winner in division 3 is allowed to buy one attacker from any division 3 team of course without getting rejected.

Best defence (least goals against) of the season

Prize: Buy one defender of any lower division team with a maximum of the rating cap, the winner in division 3 is allowed to buy one defender from division 3 of course without getting rejected.

Best average goalkeeper of the season

Prize: Buy any second best goalkeeper (ratingwise) from any team in the same division you play in without getting rejected.

Best average defender of the season

Prize: Buy any second best defender (ratingwise) from any team in the same division you play in without getting rejected.

Best average midfielder of the season

Prize: Buy any second best midfielder (ratingwise) from any team in the same division you play in without getting rejected.

Best average attacker of the season

Prize: Buy any second best attacker (ratingwise) from any team in the same division you play in without getting rejected.

Defenders are the following: DL/DC/DR/DRLC

Midfielders are the following: DML/DMC/DMR/DMRLC/ML/MC/MR/MRLC

Attackers are the following: AML/AMC/AMR/AMRLC/FL/FC/FR/FRLC

Teams will start with empty squads and 200 million to spend on their team.

However of course there is also a rule how to spend your money in the first season. Because we wanna start with a fair gw Division 3 is allowed to spent 170 million in the first season, Divison 2 135 million in the first season and Divison 1 100 million in the first season. Mainly this rule is applied to make sure that the lucky ones that start in Division One and Two won't buy just the best team when it comes to ratings but rather buy and build a team that will be able to grow in the future.

Every manager interested must show interest and apply by posting in the forum and every manager will get a club based on random lottery which will take place on a website outside of Soccer Manager. I will put a list of the available clubs on this forum thread after i have at least 10 interested managers.

I know this has been a long read but i hope that you like the idea enough to join this gameworld. Any ideas or changes can be discussed of course till the gameworld starts. Thank you for all the time you took reading this! :D

If you have interest let us know here on the forum and/or pm onomanunn. At most i will accept 30 managers so the gw won't get too big.

One warning though to everyone that wants to join. I will check your history before i accept you in the gw. If i see that people quickly quit gw's i will not accept you because i don't want other managers to get stuck with teams they had no control over plus i don't want other managers that do want to play the game to feel let down because of someone leaving when they lose for example. It may seems pretty strong words but i rather play with 10 committed managers then with 30 that leave quickly. ;)

Hopefully we will hear from you soon ;)

Daniel (onomanunn in the forums and the games)

Edit: There have been some questions about the rules stated above. I will answer all questions with quotes in the forum but as well will i put links to the questions and answers here so you can get extra information without having to look through the whole tread. If anyone has more questions don't hesitate and ask.

As you maybe noticed guys and gurls in the above list Elohim is missing. He had to withdraw due to unexpected beardgrow :P I do hope Elohim will get back but we will just have to wait and see if he can get get his beard under control first. Until that time i am still looking for new managers so if you know someone pass this forum thread on so we can kickoff whenever we feel like it ;)

Because the first 10 managers have shown interest i have posted the first ten teams that will be in the gw. They are open for discussion though. Check for the teams:

As far as the unrejectable goes..i thought about it four days ago and i really think it's a competitive element for everyone to take into account.

I do hope you will have a great time in your gw's and all the luck and right managers you need for it :D

Re: Now This Is What I Call A Soccer Challenge

A very nice idea mate' date=' seems very interesting to me, but not sure if I will be able to place my interest due to time restraints unfortunately.

Will look into it in the next few days and maybe I will.

If not good luck with the setup mate, seems one designed for success![/quote']

I read about your studies i think. These are way more important. But take some time and i'll keep a space open for you for the time you need to decide. No hurry at all ;) Thank you for the compliment but i could not have done it without Ben C and Elohim. :D
