    Exclamation General Information, Setup & Questions

    OK, here is how I envision things going.... feel free to point out any obvious flaws in my master plan... I may have overlooked things....

    ***************************
    Step 1 - Draft


    2 GK
    8 D (or D/DM or D/M)
    8 M (DM/M/AM)
    4 F (F or SC)

    If a player has multiple positions, you need to say if it's one of your D or M or F picks
    Squad size: minimum 22, maximum 35

    You will have 40 million to buy depth players to fill out your squad

    Step 2 - Buy depth players

    You can (but don't have to) buy depth players at their cost in the save (that I will create and post once things get going)
    Submit list of players and bids via pm
    Any players with multiple bids go to auction

    Step 3 - Auction

    Any players with multiple bids go to auction…. simples

    Step 4 - Haggle

    I don’t think this part needs explaining... calm down AJ, we're not at this part yet

    NO LOANS - Cash or trade only

    ***********************************

    General info:

    All Assistants will be handy-manned (20s in everything)
    Lineups and tactics will be submitted once per in-game month
    No transfers during the season (as it’s a huge pain in the ass to do)
    I’m running the vanilla game with no patches so I’m going to use a league other than Engerland so we can have 7 subs, rather than 5…. maybe Spain….
    No European competitions for the first season

    Formations:

    Wib-Wob allowed but no centralized cheat tactics (you must have 2 wide players somewhere)
    As Dictator of this league, I will be the only and final judge about the legitimacy of a tactic

    Quick Q is the draft done being randomiser and those 22 players are free? And then the "depth" players (to make up to 35) come from the 40m?

    Learn to wib-wob..... or pretend you have and steal an Iodine clone from the tactics section, rename it, and call it your own

    Yes... random draft order, 22 players selected, then your 40 million shekels to fill out your squad (or not)

    BTW, nowhere do I say that it has to be a tactic that you create......

    Yup.... I'll put us all in a random number generator so we know who picks when.... then it will go from #1 to #10, then from #10 to #1... and so on until we've got our 22
