View Full Version : New format: To Be The Best, You Got To Beat The Best

Hi lads,

I'm back with another format. :)

The general idea:

A total of max. 16 managers who will battle it out against one another in a series of 1 season challenges. Each season they will 'create' a team through draft and use a custom tactic for that season to determine who is the best. A seperate league table will be made for to keep track of the winners and who ever wins the series of challenges, wins the game and a small prize.

So in short:

- We will use the Saturn v7 patch with the latest March 2019 update.

- You get to create a custom team in the Premier League which you will stick with throughout the series.

- Each season we will start on a new save and all the players in the DB will be released with the release them all tool.

- Your team will have to be drafted together each season (I will explain the draft in depth down below).

- You must use a custom formation from the game, but you are free to use any arrows, player and team instructions to your liking. But the basic shape of the formation must stay the same. Each season a different formation will be chosen.

- Squad submission will be weekly so a season will be run in 10 weeks. I will holiday each month and post screenshots for results.

- After the December month there will be a 'haggle' window where you can swap players, but only 1 for 1 or 2 for 2 etc. to avoid imbalances in squads.

- At the end of the season there will be points given for your ranking that will go into a seperate table. At the end of the series the one with the most points wins.

- That's it. :)


Now about the draft.

Each team will have to assemble a squad of 23 players (2 for each position and a 3rd keeper) and based on the tactic chosen there will be 11 positions.

So if let's say the 4-3-3 is chosen there will be a GK, DL, DR, 2x DC, MLC, MC, MRC, FL, SC and FR.

I will create 11 drafts in total to fill all these positions. For each draft I will select the 32 players (if there are 16 managers) for that position with the highest CA ingame. Then I will do a random draw to determine the pick order of the draft amongst the managers. You then each pick a player until we reach the last one to pick and then we reverse the order to pick again (you need 2 players for each position). So the one who picks first also picks last again. With keepers we will have 3 rounds as everyone must have 3 keepers.

And so we do 11 drafts to assemble the squads. Each draft I will do random draw for the picking order to keep it fair. :ok:

Any questions? Let me know! :ok:

First draft will be coming Sunday and the next one will start once the first has ended. So I expect the next two weeks to be busy with the drafts.

In regards to the draft I will hold one big draft for the 3 midfield spots.

At first I had it split into the right sided M's and AM's for the MRC spot, the left sided M's and AM's for the MLC spot and the central sided M's and AM's for the MC spot. But thinking about it I will mix them all together and we go for a 6 round!! draft where everyone can pick their 6 midfielders from the entire pool. That way you can chose whether to focus more on wingers types or actual centralized type of players.

Forwards will be one draft as well with 4 rounds so after the DMC draft there will be 2 more drafts :ok:

When the final draft finishes I only have to put the players from it into the editor as the others are already done.

So ideally that will be done tomorrow or Thursday at the last and I will start doing the pre-season review of all teams which will be up this weekend. I will also upload the save for you to check and you'll have a week to submit for the first month. :ok:

I removed all major injuries, loans, future transfers, etc. from the player_setup.cfg file. Any injuries that are in your squad now happened while holidaying from when the game was created until the start of the season. I could fix them with CM Explorer, but that editor has ruined many save games for me so I dare not touch it anymore. So I'd say tough luck.

Squad statuses and new contracts can indeed be posted in your offices.

We're using the Saturn patch so 7 subs allowed in matchday squad.

I noticed some of my top guys played the reserve game and aren't fit for my first league game. Seven in total. Silva and both holding midfielders included, leaves me a little short in midfield. Hopefully should get passed Leicester though anyway.

Not your fault Ray, just wondering if I'm the only one?

That's because I've holidayed to the start of the season. The ones your Ass Man selected for the reserve game will be not fit. It's one of the things that happens when holidaying sadly.

But manually clicking through a month and a half for 12 managers with all the transfer bids coming in is worse than hell. :(

dweatherston11
06-05-19, 04:31 PM
Yeh absolutely understand that. Normally it's the guys I wouldn't play, But Bernardo is my star midfielder!

Don't worry, I should do Leicester no bother then fitness shouldn't be an issue in the future games!

With the ban of Jacob (and the fact that I'm completely done with him personally) there's now a spot open in Beat the Best Manager.

Central Coast Mariners can be taken over by any who pleases (not the existing managers though ;)).

Iíll pick it up, mate. Was regretting turning it down when the draft kicked off!

Cheers mate. I'll open the office again for you. :ok:

Jacob already submitted I think for coming Sunday when things kick off, but you can make your own tactic/squad submission obviously. Deadline is coming Sunday 12 AM UK time.

As things stand now the season will finish with the final month of May on July 14th.

On the 15th I'll leave for a 3 week holiday so there will be at least a 3 week stop to this before season 2 starts. :ok:

I got a question for you all to think about the coming weeks.

During draft, do you want to pick your own player out of the database or from a set list?

This draft I made lists of players for you to choose from, but I did notice that some of you weren't to happy with the quality in some drafts.

So how would you like it to pick your own players? I would still determine the draft order per position and what positions are eligible, but there wouldn't be a list to choose from. Instead when it's your turn you name a player that's allowed.

For example when DC's are being picked I would state that only DC, D/DMC or SW/DC can be picked so a DRC wouldn't be allowed.

Thoughts?

Madness. That would require a lot of work on our part, far, far happier for you to do all of that nonsense!

I was thinking a couple things or ideas for you.

1. We each get to choose 1 player to keep, so there is at least someone we will have again.
2. Keep the lists, but put them all out at once, Players can choose who they want when they want. As long as you pick the correct number from correct position.

Up to you of course. Was happy with the previous way. If its a free for all it will take too long in my opinion.

To those of you who don't know:

I've been thinking about this for a while and have made the decision to cease my activities here on this forum.

Long story short: I want to focus on the things I do on the Facebook page as they're more interactive and give me more satisfaction. I can't maintain both forum and FB page with things that are going on in my private life so I had to make a decision.

I will run the final 2 months (March and April/May) and then take my leave.

Thank you for participating and if anyone wants to take it over, send me a PM and I can hand it over :ok:

Ray the only thing that disappoints me about a few of your interactive games is, you start with such promise and excitement, and then 2 to 6 months later you're commitment level waines and then dies altogether, I just wish you would finish what you start. Good luck with the new job and don't forget where home is :ok:

Can't help but agree... It's not gone unnoticed to be fair and some of us did warn GFRay against taking on too much as it's happened a few times before now.

In fairness, the only person who has ever managed to do that consistently over the years is me :D But I'm lucky as I've been in the same job for so long that I can spare my lunch hour to work on one competition one day and something else the next without feeling burnt out.
