    Challenge 4 - Nationals Only

    Well, the title speaks for itself. This is a long challenge, for the bravest



    You are to load 5 leagues, namely English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.You start as Juventus manager and your (first)aim is to win the championship with the national players only! Only then are you allowed (AND REQUIRED) to move on to ANOTHER country and do the same with another club! Once you win 5 domestic titles with 5 different clubs in 5 different countries using ONLY National players you're done!!

    RULES

    - in order to fulfill the "nationals only" requirement you HAVE TO have NO foreign players in your club (which means reserves are included) from the first to the last official match in that season...that means you cannot do it with anyone in the first season as most teams have at least one foreigner (EVEN if you get rid of the foreigners before the first official match, the first season at a new club still doesn't count,i.e. everything you win counts as "with foreigners")

    - no cheat tactics (centralized-less than 3 defs and/or no wing players)

    - no month-to-month contracts cheat or any other cheat - if you have the need to bend the rules and rape the game just to win a challenge, go get a life!

    - use March 2009 Update, Tapanified or not

    - second nationalities count as well

    -you have 25 seasons to finish the challenge

    POINTS

    WITH foreigners

    Domestic title - 100 pts
    Domestic cup - 50 pts
    Champions League - 300 pts
    Uefa Cup - 200 pts

    WITHOUT foreigners


    Domestic title - 1000 pts
    Domestic cup - 400 pts
    Champions League - 800 pts
    Uefa Cup - 600 pts

    League Cups do not count either way

    SCREENSHOTS

    - anything to prove the points you win
    - squad list to prove you have (and had at the beginning of the given season) no foreigners (reserves included)


    You can choose to create the game yourself, or download a pre-loaded save

    Made a start on this, did very well with Juve, then got to EPL with Spurs. Now spent a whole year with no job applying for everything in every league, and getting no offers. No one likes to hire English managers it would seem. England failed miserably in the world cup, and have now offered me the position. Frustrating that no club will take me on in the second divisions of France and Germany. Will take England job and apply for everything that turns up.

    Are there points deductions for this for using March 2012 given we have no current access to the March 2009 data? (One who has these files upload them if they can)

    Use a save game editor to see what your CA/PA is and to set a second nationality for yourself if you want (but only once).... there are known issues regarding applying for and getting jobs in different countries..... many of us who have done this challenge have ended up taking over teams in the lowest divisions because we couldn't find jobs anywhere else..... although by the time I got to Spain as my last country, my choice of Spanish nationality had paid off and I got the RM job.....

    ....of course the first time I tried this challenge I picked Canadian as my nationality and that got me nowhere

    I have the March 2009 update at home and will upload it when I get off work (or sometime later tonight)

    No, you can't use the March 2012 update.

    Can you upload the save for us to have a look at please mate? I'm rather hesitant to allow people to edit their CA/PA and nationality on this challenge when others weren't given that luxury. If it is the only way though I wiil.

    I persevered with this and have been given a job with Balma, in the French National. Terrible sqaud, avoided relegation and managed to make signings the next season. No editing has been done, I am English in the game. I am now looking forward to life in the second division.

    I attempted this back in March 09 and had a corrupted save. I am going for this again however I am not claiming points as it's personal and I will be using March 2012.

    If others would rather I posted updates in "how are you doing" I'll understand.


    Loading...............now

    Post it here.... the fun with the old update is that Jorge Andrade is out for the season with an injury so it makes it hard to get rid of him.....

    So with my first season over and wholesale changes and all foreigners departed I am looking at retaining the Serie A Title. We finished 1 point ahead of Milan in what was a tight battle with them throughout. Thankfully they lost the game in hand and we won the title by just 1 point.

    We also triumphed in Europe by winning the Europa League after a 1-0 victory over Schalke.

    The squad will need strengthening over the Summer as players are complaining about lack of depth I have 32M at the moment so that should help, although I don't want to spend for the sake of spending so Juve don't struggle when I hopefully depart at the end of my second season.

    I am pleased with the double as it'll boost my reputation for when I depart.

    Started this challenge, 1st season won serie a, then got the leeds job and won the prem 2nd season. after this found it hard to get a job because of nationality, in the end had to take the offenbach job in germany and progressed threw the leagues to win the top divison. then sturggled to get a job in spain or france. Currently managing rouen in france top division hope to complete this soon.

    You have to stay with clubs for a minimum of three seasons in the top flight mate except Juventus where you spend two seasons which I don't think you've done unfortunately mate.

    I've played tru this challenge a few years ago.

    Was the best thing i've ever did, or at least very close. Been globetrotting in my saves ever since

    1 thing i dont get:

    One can finish this challenge in min of 10 years (first years dont count thingie) but it is better for score to play for 25 years? if you get to your last club/nation, you would keep a foreigner till the 25th season and get points every year.

    Hope i dont sound too ambitious... check my challenge scores if you think that
