The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Recommended Posts

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Actually' date=' here's what I was thinking for the formation tracker. I had to ditch the layout I had below as the code's really complicated to make it look aligned. It was not nice to edit!

Each of you would just copy the this and post it at the bottom of your results posts here to keep yourself and everyone else up-to-date with what you have used/left available:

Key: Green = can use at start or as change during game, yellow = can use at start but not as change during game, orange = can't use at start but can use as change during game, red = no longer available at start or during game

(recalling that each formation can be used just once at the start of the game, and can be used just once to switch formations during a game)

So for example, say I play Dom, and I start with 3-2-2-2-1, switching at 60 mins to 5-4-1 and back to 3-2-2-1 after 75 mins, and Dom plays 3-5-2, switching to 4-3-3(W) after 45 mins and 3-3-4 after 75 mins then we would update our trackers to look like this:

Questions? Comments? How'd that work for you? :)

Yeah makes sense mate, would it not be easier for you to make people stick with the formation they started with though?

Regardless, i'm still in.

Huh?! No, that's the point, to get people to have to try out new formations! :rolleyes:

Okay, great stuff, so we're rolling. Not sure when I'll get a chance to put the fixtures up but I'll do it ASAP. Might even start a new fixtures/results thread, just to keep things tidy...

Oh, I see what you mean, no in-match formations changes? Yeah, we could do that. What does everyone else think? (it's been a long day!)

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Im up for that :D

I dont want too much work ! :P

Okay, if that's what Dom wants then that's what we'll do! Anything for a simple life! :P

I'll remove the yellow form the formation tracker, so we're down to a real traffic light now, couldn't be simpler! So the new rules is that you can make tactical changes but no formation ones. Any in-game formation change results in a 5 point penalty! You can thank Dom for that :D

EDIT: Hang on, it's not even a traffic light, just green and red. By god Dom boy, you're a genius! Oh hang on, or should that be Alurcard? ;)

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Formation Challenge Fixtures!

Okay, so due to popular demand, here's the fixture list for the first ever Formation Challenge! Just putting it down drives home what a big thing this is! I'm sure we're all up to the challenge!

Okay, so the fixture list is below but just a few points first:

- See the fixtures as a guide rather than definitive. Ideally we'd like to aim for this, but we've all got other things on, and if a fixture is missed because you forget, or if you can't play it because of some other commitment (say Forum Cup games) then so be it, we can catch up later as this thing was always meant to be flexible.

- To allow for greater flexibility I've included 'rest/catch-up weeks', one every 4 games and 2 every 8 games. If this proves unpopular we can whip them out down the line, and if we need more we can just add them in...

- As there's 13 teams involved each week one will always have a rest week. Because of this though I'm not sure that we will have all played the same amount of games at the end of the 18 week season (the fixture list generator did a 26 week season so things are a little wonky). It also means that everyone does not have the exact same schedule, but this too was unavoidable given that we're shooting for 18 league games and 6 playoffs to match the 24 formations. I'll post separately how I propose to fix this...

And so with those points in mind, here's the fixture list:

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Hey, so can everyone do me a favour? It would be a tremendous help if you could all post what your own team's fixture list looks like. That way we can then see what games we need to schedule to make things even at the end of the 18 league games. Also, add your formation tracker under your fixture list. That way if you just update this one post as we go along I can just hyperlink to each one, making it easy for all to find. :)

I'll get the ball rolling and if you could do the same for your team with the same format that's be really helpful :D

There you go, took less than 5 mins to do and will be even quicker for you as you can just copy this format ;)

One thing I'm just realising is that because of the missed week as a result of 13 teams we're going to have to add in probably one more extra week at the end of the season as I've only got 15 fixtures there and will need 18. Once I see what the rest of you post then I'll try and put up those last 3 weeks :)

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

The FORUM CUP should not interfere with this comp.

To make it easier - forum cup should start after this finishes.

After all, we have committed to play in this so we should see it through before adding any other comps that could interfer with it.

Like I say Craig, it's always intended to be flexible. Here we are just trying this out to see how it goes, and we have flexibility built in for people for whatever reason they need. To say make it that no-one has the ability to play any other friendly for any reason is untenable. Besides, the Forum Cup is already well under way. I'm guessing no-one would want to sit on their hands and just wait for that to finish first would they? Just roll with it please...

being flexible is fine but when both clash on dates etc - it becomes an added problem.

anyway, I'm lost already :o

How many home games and how many away games in total

And that's why we've got extra 'rest weeks' added in to allow for such clashes. If someone has to postpone then they can just re-schedule at a later date, just like Man Utd do (Freguson's Man Utd, not SOP's :P)

There's 18 league games, 9 at home and 9 away. Because we have 13 teams everyone cannot play each other, as that would be 24 games, which although this is the ideal number of games needed for the challenge, I also want to cover against the possibility of someone pulling out and letting us down.

So, we play 18 league games but the fixture generator calculates it on the basis of 26 weeks, not what we need. I cut it off before then, but because each week one team sits out I was unsure what corrections we need to make to ensure that all teams play the same number of league games, 18.

So right now, you should have either 14 or 15 fixtures posted. If I posted 18 for you then some teams would only have 17. I've pulled short so I can see what fixtures we need to add to make it work but I need everyone to post their schedules first and then I can work out what's needed and will post the final fixtures. It only takes 2 minutes...:rolleyes:

For now though, just get cracking and start arranging the friendlies and we can tweak things are problems arise (hence the need for flexibility...)

Any questions?

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

And that's why we've got extra 'rest weeks' added in to allow for such clashes. If someone has to postpone then they can just re-schedule at a later date' date=' just like Man Utd do (Freguson's Man Utd, not SOP's :P)

Re: The EC 7046 Formation Challenge

Okay, so with just 1 day to go we've just 5 out of the 13 managers who have their fixtures up and just 2 of Thursday's 6 games arranged. Sorry lads but I've put quite a bit of effort into this and just a little of the same from you would be appreciated :(

People who have posted their fixtures: Ahmad Rivai, Alurcard, Elton, Hazrboi, Jooles, Kapitan Kloss, Nikidinho

People yet to post fixtures: Craig, Dom, Gurnak, Rob Walshe, StephenMUFC, The Inferno

My original request is here and the full fixture list is here :(

If everyone can post and update a copy of the formation tracker underneath, and update this and your results and formations used that's how we'll keep track of things. I've put together a post, here, that you can all refer to for easy access to everyone's info, as well as all the rules (please take note of all the points penalties! :eek:), and the league table.

Let me know if you've any questions please...

And here's our fixture list for the opening day of the challenge, with just 2 games arranged :(

Week 1 - Thurs June 9th

Sheff Utd v Carlisle - confirmed

Burnley v Derby - confirmed

Hull City v Blackpool - not confirmed :(

Middlesbrough v MK Dons - confirmed

Fulham v Leeds - not confirmed :(

Man City v Millwall - not confirmed :(

Sorry, I'm willing to put a lot of work into this but I'm not willing to do everything. It's an ambitious (but hopefully fun and interesting) project and ultimately it will only be as successful as the effort that you yourselves put in...:(
