    UEFA European Championship CM Network Tournament

    With Euro Champs fever gripping Europe's nations this summer, I thought it would be great to get a CM 01/02 network game going to celebrate the occasion.

    Here's my idea...



    We start a brand spanking new network game hosted by Mike (Offside Trap), using the Tapani 2.21.1 patch and the latest April 2016 data update.

    Mike will holiday the game for a season and save just after the UEFA Champions League final, this will bring us nicely to the start of the UEFA European Championships build up. This will then give each player a few weeks to finalise their squads for the tournament.

    The 16 teams that have qualified will be put on the forum and depending on how many we get sign up the strongest teams will be used. For example; if 8 sign up, then we will use the 8 strongest teams such as Germany, Spain, Italy, France etc. I could maybe do the draw live on a twitch stream or something.

    The winner of the tournament will get an engraved trophy that I will pay for and send to the winner. Maybe the winner once they recieve it could then take a photo of them with the trophy and attach it to this thread so we can keep a history of winners.

    Depending on the interest we could more than likely get this played out in a couple of 2 hour sessions on nights that would suit everybody.

    There can be no use of wib wob and maybe (if this is possible?) we can get the saved game loaded up on the net so people can load it up in their own time and check out their nations form players etc and once you know your squad you can submit it in this thread. This will save time and get things flowing well once we kick off.

    We definitely have 6 signed up for this already, with all 6 of the players playing 'The Big 6' network game up for it, but it would be great if we could get a few more reliable players to sign up.

    I will leave the sign up open until Sunday night, so come Monday morning the sign up will be closed and we will get the ball rolling.

    Games need to be played on the 'very slow' setting as this gives players a chance to tweak their tactics during the match, don't forget the Tapani patch makes even the slow option fast lol.

    'The Big 6' network game will be put off until this has finished, to which it will then resume again.

    Sounds good, and the great thing is, we may well finish this in 1-2 session, so minimal risk of someone not making it.

    Nice one mate. You up for doing it? Your more than welcome if you can be committed to it? Shouldn't last more than 2 sessions I'd have thought.

    Okay Guys, have holidayed a year and the date is 21 May 2016, few days before the CL Final, had to make sure it was prior to countries selecting their squads for the Euro. 2 notable absentees from the competition are Holland & Belgium who both failed to qualify but have had a glance through the 16 teams in it, and its now down to the vote which we all consider as the big guns. As it stands, we have 7 players participating, ideally, 1 more would be perfect, so in no particular order, IMO , the giants we need to choose from are as follows

    Spain

    Germany

    England

    Italy

    France

    Portugal

    Sweden

    Czech R

    The holiday year included many many league to generate alot more players for us to choose from, and the DB is at a maximum. Matt will look at the best way of deciding which players is gonna have which nation, i'm not sure how easy a stream is gonna be, but an idea, Chris aka 316'sRegen, he could assign a number to the teams we select as the big guns, then participating players, pick a number, and then at the end, he announces who will manage who - just an idea

    The link below is a link to the saved game at the date I mentioned. As and when we all know which team we're gonna be, you guys can D/L it and scout your county for players, maybe make a list and then when we have the first session, you can go straight to them - what you think

    The D/L has the game twice, once as is, and once zipped up, (I use WinRar)


    https://www.sendspace.com/filegroup/...EMFtUmLmuabEkg


    What we really need to know now though is the essential order of teams, which we are going to pick numbers from, the list above is purely my opinion, and am happy to swap change whatever, as my last 2 I'm, not too sure of tbh - feedback welcome

    At first glance I`d change Czech R with Croatia

    And would personally manage Turkey over Sweden (even though Zlatan)

    Hoping to get one of these :

    Spain

    Germany

    England

    Italy

    France

    Spain

    Germany

    England

    Italy

    France

    Portugal

    Sweden/Croatia/Russia/Poland



    If you put them 8 teams and the 7 players into 2 separate pots Chris but as 7 bits of paper for the 8 teams if that makes sense? That way if you draw Sweden/Croatia you have a choice out of the 2, with them being the weakest sides IMO. If we get an 8th player that would be fantastic as we could make Sweden and Croatia seperate picks in the draw, but if not, go with the above.

    I've changed the rules on the speed of games:

    Games need to be played on the 'very slow' setting as this gives players a chance to tweak their tactics during the match, don't forget the Tapani patch makes even the slow option fast lol.

    kruleone, have you read the details on how to install Hamachi and get set up?

    Have a look - http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4632 (this is for windows 7)

    Once you get set up I'm sure the guys here will tell you the name of the group to join through a PM

    London35 - I'm guessing you have checked the save and know that these teams are qualified. Tierney's the man with the plan so I'll make the draw and you guys can sort it out before the first session. Be sure to tune in at half time in the France game

    We'll stick with the 8 teams we've got mate, but what we'll do is if you get drawn these lot Sweden/Croatia/Russia/Poland (if Poland have qualified Mike?) you get a choice out of the 4 as their arguably the weakest sides. So Chris if you can stick them 4 in the draw as one pick that would be great mate.

    Kruleone would be great if you could play mate but you need to answer Regen's question by about 5pm today because the draws being done, if that's the case and Kruleone wants to join and can then we'll split Sweden/Poland and Croatia/Russia as 2 separate picks.

    As it stands, we have 7 confirmed players, they are:

    1) London35
    2) Janis
    3) Ian Wood
    4) Morten
    5) Pepe
    6) Matt
    7) Michael


    Deadline is 5pm for new players to showcase proper interest for participating. I'm around most of the day and will therefore be online, if any help/assistance is needed. I can either guide you what to do, or Teamviewer it, but like Chris said - most Questions and Issues can be on answered on the link he posted - Windows 8, and 10 are just as straight forward
