The Challenges are back!

As this is the 2nd time we're setting up the same challenge, I can't be bothered with the fancy layout, so this time you'll get just the basics.


You start as Hoffenheim manager. Your primary goal is to win as many Bundesliga titles as possible in 10 seasons. EVERY title has to be won with a DIFFERENT club. You can move from Hoffenheim only after you win the title and you MUST move clubs if you want to keep earning points. I recommend choosing German nationality at the beginning.

Only September 2008 and December 2008 updates are allowed...

Free choice. Centralised tactics and tactics with less than 3 defenders are frowned upon.


Title - 200 pts
Runners-up - 180 pts
3rd Placed - 160 pts

German Cup
Winner - 150 pts
Runners-up - 130 pts

German League Cup
Winner - 100 pts

Individual titles
Top League Goalscorer - 25 pts
Top League Assist Maker - 25 pts

Points Deduction
5 pts for EVERY player signed including loans

Screenshots required
-transfers in
- competition records- basically you need a screenie to prove everything that brought you points

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

Just starting this challenge.

08-04-12, 08:46 PM
Good luck mate - cracking challenge and good slog as well! :)

10-04-12, 12:40 PM
First contact with Hoffenheim squad.

GK. Timo Hilldebrand. Four other keepers in squad. Only Haas with some potential. Two of the rest are available for transfer.

Defenders. Ibertsberger and Beck as left and right back. We need some improvements in centre back. Nilsson will be starter, but there are some weakness in this position. Looking for options. I like playing with 3 centre-backs and 2 long wingers. At this time is a little risky.

Midfielders. Bosnian Salihovic may be a good playmaker. Obasi (R) and Carlos Eduardo (LC) are best players of the squad. We need some strenght in midfield.

Attackers. Ibisevic and Demba Ba are good options, but we need a top class up there. Wellington and Borghammer are in transfer list. We need money to buy new players.

07-06-12, 02:55 PM
How you getting on mate?

08-07-12, 03:29 PM
Right .. Time for me to do some of these challeneges - so guess i better start with number 1.

08-07-12, 03:58 PM
Best of luck mate!

08-07-12, 04:14 PM
Slightly confused ...installed the Sept 2008 update - but Obasi is known as Edu and isn't a RIght midfielder but a striker - bit confused - cant find the old December update either ...have i got the right update ??

08-07-12, 06:45 PM
That must be right for the Sept update mate. I can't find the Dec 2008 update either so you may have to request that here if you want to use that http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?243-Comments-and-Questions-that-Don-t-Warrant-a-Thread/page9 although I wouldn't count on someone having it mate.

09-07-12, 03:01 AM
Ahh bummer - think its the sim update and i hate playing with that DB lol Ill post on there and see what i can find - if not then Sept 2008 sim one it is . I must be able to at least win wont title in 10 seasons...i think... lol

14-07-12, 06:21 AM
Does anyone have the September 2008 or December 2008 updates?

If not, can this be done on another update?

Craig Forrest
14-07-12, 07:28 AM
Sept 2008 was pre-split so there was no SIM or ODB update.... and it is in the dl section

maybe vjatceslav was using the wrong DB?

30-11-12, 08:08 PM
First season 3rd :( 2 points behind Stuttgart and 16 points behind archelock Bayern.

01-12-12, 02:35 AM
Ooooossshhhttt - lovely little challenge this

08-12-12, 03:02 PM
I restarted this as I fucked up the previous save with tons of foreigner drunk transfers :redface:

As from experience I didnt made lots of tramsfers this time. I got Denilson for free and Paraguayan AM LC Dos Santos for 1.4M


I used the FurryoftheBeast as tactic, so thanks to the creator.

I sold keepers Kirschbaum and Ramazan Özcan for a total 1.1M

The MRL Weis went to M'gladbach for 2.8M as I wasn't going to use him.

Also the veteran MR Keller went to St.Pauli for 60k.

Season went very very well, apart from the cup tho, we got beaten by Rostock in the second round.

At about 20 games in the league we were around 15 points ahead of our closest follower...but Bayern was 20 points ahead of us. They lost only 3 games all season and no draws untill 6 matches from the end of the season when they were crowned the plate.

There is no way I can see to beat them in this first season. Damn you Pati!

Bayern also got the cup.

We finished 2nd:


I couldnt ressist selling d L/C Compper to Bayern. 5.5M was too good to turnd down.

RB Beck was awesome all season, 7.33 rating with 7 goals 5 assist and 2M.o.Ms. He was capped once too.

Denilson did well too, 6 goals and 4 assist 7.21 avarage.

Ba was the highest scorer with 15 goals followed by Salihovic's 12

Carlos Eduardo, Ibisevic and Salihovic got 6 assists.

The fans favorite of the season, Salihovic was the highest avarage with 7.65 followed by Ibibsevic's 7.38

So we are going to Champions League with our amazing 4500 capacity stadium. At least 1620 of those can sit!

I'll probably buy some full back subsitude, might buy a very very good DC if I can find one with reasonable price. Surely a DMC and probably a AMC with high assist ability.

Hoffenheim didn't win any award whatsoever this season but we hold the highest scoring league game record:


By the end of the year, the board announced 2000 more plastic chairs will be put next to the stadium.
Score: 180 for league 2nd
-10 for 2 transfers

total: 170 points.

11-12-12, 07:34 PM
Season 2:

I got more involved in the market this year:


Hamann is a youngster highly recomended by my new good scout. He played 6 (7) games and manage 2 goals and 6.46 av.

Nocerino and Bentivoglio were the new DMC's

Terzi a back-up DC

More about Almeida and Makinwa later.

Players out:


The season started with the league cup, we went out in semi against HSV after a ton of penalties. Strike 1!

We got out of the CL first group 3rd, went to the UEFA only to get hammered by Middlesbrough 3-6 on agg.

Europe out and done only one more cup between league concentration.

We reached the semi's of the German cup, loosing to last year relageted VFB Stuttgart.

I tried to buy Mario Gomez, Serdar Tasci and Sami Khedira all year but didnt manage one. Altho HSV managed not one but 4 of their players:


Hope they wont be able to finish all of those purchases, or at least a manager firing at some point :D

The league went well and ok, keeping Bayern a point or 2 behind, untill 7 matches to the end of the league, where they got the lead and didnt give it back. :((

We did however manage to get a high scorer and a high assister.



Final points:

Runner up: 180
Goalscorer: 25
Assister: 25
Transfers: -30

Total: 200
Season1: 170

Alltogethernow: 370 :dance:

29-12-12, 01:07 AM
Season 3:

I bought these players mostly by relegation release clauses or unhappy bastard clauses:


and :censored: Bayern got Iniesta and Terry.

The seasons saddest moment was this:


I got knocked off of all the cups and shit early but it didnt help our league progress. I am never going to say we are contesters ever again!

Final league position:


Final points:

3rd: 160 points
transfers (6): 30

Sub: 130
Prev: 370

Total: a fine 500!

29-12-12, 04:40 PM
Season 4:

Transfers, lots of transfers:


and out:


that is - 35 points

Which we made up with an early league cup, our first cup ever!


We got knowcked out of the CL cup in the second group, being 3rd after Real Madrid and Panathinaikos but above Inter.

The season went awesome apart from that. We made it to the DFB Pokal final, but lost to 2 early goals from Sttutgart:


And in the end we won the plate!



and Galatasaray won the UEFA Cup!



Final Points:

1st in League: 200
League Cup winner: 100
DFB final: 130
Transfers: -35

Sub: 395
Prev: 500

Total: 895 points!

So some qusetions:

This is my pa/ca:


I get to chage that to 160/160 right?

And, there is no job available in germany. Do I get to stay in Hoffenheim and get points by winning cups or I have to quit and wait for a job?

29-12-12, 06:09 PM
now there are jobs from regional with teams of 2 players at most. I have to take one? :shocked:

29-12-12, 06:29 PM
Don't have to move on from Hoff but you don't get any more points mate. Resign from Hoff and hopefully you can get your replacements club :ok:

well done as well!

30-12-12, 10:36 AM
Got me a new job, I'm "glad" :ok:

30-12-12, 05:46 PM
Best of luck with Borussia Monchengladbach then!

01-01-13, 05:40 PM
Season 5:

Left my perfect squad to Michael Skibbe, who ruined it :( Final position for Hoffenheim: 11th

First and only oppening was Borissia M'Gladbach.

I got the job and saw the leaving manager made tons of transfers. Boruc :tsk:


So I made a few more...


We did very well just untill the finish. I didn't reply the "Are you challangers" news but the team got downformed again anyways, I will deny next time.



Final Points:

3rd in League: 160
League Cup winner: 0
DFB final: 0
Transfers: -25

Sub: 135
Prev: 895

Total: 1030 points!

01-01-13, 05:41 PM
ah, here is me getting the job date, for transfer check :ok:


06-01-13, 01:43 PM
Season 6:


It was a boring season, dominating the league. Champions with 3 matches more to play. I can resign before playing those right?




1st in League: 200
League Cup winner: 0
DFB final: 0
Transfers: -35

Sub: 165
Prev: 1030

Total: 1195 points!

I need to win more cups :doh:

09-01-13, 08:39 PM
First off, I forgot the "Top League Goalscorer - 25 pts" for last year, here it is; Falcao!


Total till now: 1220 points.

Season 7:

Agreed a 1 year contract with VfB Stuttgart and made a freaky season start:


They won the UEFA cup last year and finished 4th and somehow ended up in Inter-toto.


Khedira was injured bad so


I had to buy Vitor, Cavani and de Mello :D


Kyung-Suk Volas was probably one of my best finds ever. He started the season like this:


ended the season with 8.09 avarage, 7 goals, 10 assist and 5 m.o.m's in 40(5) matches. :hail:


Somewhere into the season I sold Marvin Compper to Bayern for 8.5M €, de ja vu :lol:


And later on Denilson decided he needed a new challenge and asked for a transfer. I also need another challenge but I am finishing the one in the prosses first, fucker. He buggered of with his 9.25M release clause to M'Gladbach.



The late transfers, Kuzmanovic and Rakitic did good. Kuz managed to be the highest avarage rated player, 19 matches, 14 goals and 4 assist and 5 m.o.m with 8,14 avarage rating in league.

Rakitic managed 5 goals, 6 assists and 2 mom in 13 league matches and 7.86 rating.

Altho Beck and Dzeko managed to get us 50 points.


And we won the plate:


So points:

League winner: 200
Inter Toto Cup Winner: 0 :rant:
World Championship Cup winner: 0 :rant:
UEFA Cup winner: 0 :rant:
German cup: Out in 3rd Round :tsk:
Goalscorer: 25 :dance:
Assist: 25 :dance:
Transfers: -55

Sub: 195 points

Previous: 1220 points

Total: 1415 points :w00t:

12-01-13, 08:50 PM
Season 8:

Manager of Hannover 96...


Because I signed before the end of the season, I colored my transfers, the others were arranged before I came. I dont know how I can proove this I dont know tho.

Probably yes but I cant get a job above regional :(

13-01-13, 01:27 AM
Season 9

Manager of my beloved Dortmund.

I got control in 27/12/2009, in the winter pause.




The half season went great, we managed 13 wins and 1 draw, finished 1st for 0 points


Our best buy was Jimenez, instantly making a difference:



Does this count for league top goalscorer bonus AMC? If yeah then yay, if nay than you are afraid I'll beat your score. :P

06-03-13, 11:39 AM
Kicking off this challenge. :)

I'm starting again w/ December Update (the one I have in my computer. Can't find it in DL section).

06-03-13, 12:01 PM
First look at the squad:

GK: Hildebrand and Haas are good enough, and Kirschbaum as third option (low salary), so Özcan must leave.

Defenders:We must improve every position to have any chance of success. Our wings seem to be very weeek, and our centre backs are very unexperienced.

Midfielders: Salihovic and Luis Gustavo are both good players, but we need an experienced playmaker. Carlos Eduardo is the key player (AM LC). Some players must leave to left their place to better ones.

Forwards: Ibisevic and Demba Ba will be starters, but Wellington isn't good enough. We must find another experienced striker.

There are 9M € avaliable to spend, so we need to sell players in order to increase the budget.

09-03-13, 02:53 PM
A question:
The Champions League also awards points to the challenge?

09-03-13, 03:33 PM

Great season. It would be a shame if you left that team now....


17-03-13, 02:31 PM
Hi to all,

I have been a lurker on this site since i stumbled across it when looking for data updates. Figured i would try my hand at some challenges and no better place to start than at the beginning, so here goes. I am a noob so if I am breaking any rules / doing anything wrong please point it out to me.

Got an error message at the end of my first season, first time i have ever seen an error message. Something about Oceania cup error. Researched in the forum and found a post with the same error name, and from what others have posted it seems i got error because i started in 08/09 season. Fresh install of game with 3.98 patch, then tapani 2.19 and then sept 08 data update, gonna try it again.

This is the tactic i used first time around. I am new here and still learning some of the lingo so if this is a centralized tactic or I am doing anything that is frowned upon could somebody point it out to me please.

17-03-13, 03:00 PM
Welcome and good luck on the challenges!

17-03-13, 04:22 PM
Nothing wrong with the tactic mate as you've got wide players in your DL and DR. Best of luck!

17-03-13, 07:52 PM
Thought id give this one a go.. First signing on a Free - Ronaldo - Talk about rolling back the years ! lol

17-03-13, 11:05 PM
Club : Hoffenheim

After getting an error at the end of season on my first try, and learning what centralized means, I re installed and started again with the tactic I am most familiar with, IodineCF (all credit to CamF). The season was a lot smoother and we easily won the double.

http://img547.imageshack.us/img547/5551/scorer0809.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/547/scorer0809.png/)

I did need to buy 3 players but they were well worth losing points for.

17-03-13, 11:31 PM
A few questions about how to proceed.

1) can I modify my Ca/Pa ? I read the post about manager Ca/Pa in the forum. Can I use cmexplorer to set it to 160/160, to stand a better chance of getting a different job. Is that allowed in this challenge or not?

2) can I quit my job before the end of the season? I have saved just after the cup final, can I resign now and start looking for another job?

3) If the answer to Q2 is yes, what happens to the transfers due to go through at the end of the season? would my new club still sign them? would I be deducted points for them?

Thanks in advance.

18-03-13, 09:32 AM

1- Yes you can cahnge.

2- Yes if you are already the champs

3- No points deduction

19-03-13, 12:53 PM

Took a long time for any job to become available, I accepted the first D1 job offered. New manager of Stuttgart, 16th in league with 13 games to play. I finished the season without adding any new players and was able to finish mid table. 0 points gained and 0 points lost makes this season a wash.

After finishing up last season with the squad, I saw that several players needed replacing to be successful.

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/1933/transfers3.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/12/transfers3.png/)

The replacements made a lot of a difference and we cruised to an easy league and cup double.

Pretty much the same as season 2, waited 9 months before another job became available. Took over at Frankfurt with 7 games remaining and needing 5 points to pull out of relegation. Again finished the season with no transfers in and managed to avoid getting demoted.

19-03-13, 10:43 PM

6 transfers made to strengthen the squad, to be honest I was expecting this season to be a little more challenging judging on the previous games with this squad. Turned out to be a walk in the park with maximum points gained for the season.

wasnt that story from the nationals challenge?

22-05-13, 12:11 PM
I did a story based on that once yeah, but it was left behind on the old site :(

05-06-13, 01:38 PM
Well I've finished my first year already and only avoided relegation on the last day of the season despite a good start :eek:

We did make it to the German Cup Final though and as runners-up, it gives me 130 points to start with.

No joy with a leading goalscorer or assist maker in the league with Vedad Ibisevic finishing 14th (lost his place midway through the season due to Edu's form) while my best assist maker was Carlos Eduardo with 5 :eek: and 58th overall!

Signed four players though so lose 20 points which gives me 110 points to start!

Glad I got points for the cup because I've a feeling I'm going to be busy in the transfer market now.

Keep going cheif!

Season 2 went horribly wrong. Knocked out of the UEFA Cup in the 2nd round, beaten in the 1st round of the German Cup by non-league opposition and despite a good start in the league, ultimately finished 10th.

No joy in the player titles either after pinning my hopes on Demba Ba as top scorer and Carlos Eduardo as top assist maker. Ba started well but ended up with only 3 goals in 10 appearances after the arrival of a new striker while Carlos Eduardo was by far the star man of the season with 9 goals and 10 assists but not good enough for the league statistics where he finished 9th overall. Stephane N'Gouema (who took over from Ba) ended up 9th as well in the goal chart but still a whopping 15 goals behind Miroslav Klose.

So no points earned at all after season two and having signed a total of 11 players, that takes 55 points away from my tally which is now.... 55 points!

Finally managed to get another job with 3 games left in season #2..... the bottom placed club Greuther Furth.... who have already been relegated....

If there are already 3 transfers arranged by the former manager do I need to cancel them? Do they count as signings made that I get -5 points each for?

10-06-13, 03:31 PM
Unlucky CF - sounds like at least 2 season gone until you're potentially gonna win the league again (in 4th season). Let the rebuilding begin!
I think you can either let the transfer go through and you won't lose points or cancel them
Am sure the Challenge team will let ya know!

10-06-13, 04:48 PM
I'd say you'd either get the transfers and loose points or cancel them.

But wait for the other Canadian Mountie guy to answer that ;)

Craig Forrest
10-06-13, 06:29 PM
The other Canadian Mountie guy and the Challenge Team guy have both let me know that I should either cancel them or take the points deductions.... I'll live with their decisions :ok:

10-06-13, 06:36 PM
Also just realized there is nothing in the rules about switching teams before you win the league.... the only restriction is that you must win every title with a different club and that youmust win your first with Hoffenheim before you move on... but nothing about teams after that..... maybe I won't have to wait until season 4 for more points if something else in Div 1 becomes available :D

Season 3 was not much better :( a 14th place finish in the league and knocked out by 1860 Munchen in the 3rd Round of the German Cup. Defensively we were 'OK' but really struggled to convert our chances all year round with red cards costing us a lot.

Top goalscorer was N'Gouma once again with 13 goals (8th in the league) while new signing Kwame Quansah was our top assist maker with a terrible 5 assists (26th in the league).

No points earned at all and with 10 new signings, we've lost 50 points which leaves me with just 5 points overall so far.

17-06-13, 04:51 PM
Blimey - not haviong the best luck mate!

What you struggling on? Scoring? Defence? Injuires/suspensions? Luck?!

18-06-13, 02:06 PM
A torrid spell of red cards at the moment! I'm doing a story on it so you can see from the review of the season that we're struggling with goals as well.

18-06-13, 02:09 PM
A non wib-won tactic doesn't help either!

Makes for a good story though :D

21-06-13, 02:16 PM
I'm having a 'mare!

Overhauled the squad somewhat, letting go some big players and bringing in some established names in the process. The season started so well that I was 2nd and just 4 points from the top before the Christmas break kicked in.

What followed was a disaster, we came back and went 13 games without winning a match and sunk like a stone to 10th before two wins secured an 8th place finish which is still a personal best since I started the challenge but what a disappointment...

Atanas Kurdov was the number one striker all season and got 12 goals to finish 10th in the overall table, no bonus points there but it's an opportuniy missed given that the top scorer only had 19...!

My midfielders started well amongst the goals and assists with Kwame Quansah, Umit Korkmaz and Dennis Aogo racking them up before tailing away during that horrendous run. In the end, it was unbelievably a left-back who got my best tally of assists as Alex Cazumba's 6 put him 20th in the table. No points there for me either.

Also got beaten in the 1st round of the German Cup so no points there for me.

10 new players means I lose 50 points in the challenge as well which gives me a total of -45 as I approach the halfway point of the challenge!!

Disappointing end of the season

I was so close...in 21 round that left after I took over Hertha...I had 19-2-0...but those ties were against FC Bayern and HSV which maybe ultimately cost me title

- this was battle till the last round...most exciting thing this season. 3 round before the end 3 players were tied with 14 assists...in next 2 rounds non of them was able to get any...so all were tie coming into last round

Fortunately for me I played versus Bochum (who's player was one of them), so I knew he cannot get more than 1 asist. But I needed Modric to get it.

So Modric did get assist and went on 15...however Stuttgart was leading 2-0, and their Jarolim was one of tied players. Game ended 2-0...

Did he get any asist in that game...you can see here...

This was very exciting season. I accepted Schalke 04 job, without knowing that 8 first team players already have transfers arranged, so I lost 8 standard player before beginning of the season. Which made my task very challenging.
I barely had all positions covered and often had to play players on wrong positions.

6 rounds before the end I was 5 points behind.
3 rounds before the end I was 3 points behind
2 rounds before the end I was 1 point behind
then they finally lost to Leverkusen 1-3, and I took opportunity to past them on top.

Apart from Mark i guess :D

06-09-13, 01:06 PM
Problem with this challenge is that is more rewarding of 2nd places rather than first

if I finish 2nd, I get only 20 points less, but then next season im able to play League cup and I can win 480 points per season...which I cant play with mediocre clubs who's managers are getting fired, their top even with 1st place is 400

For me best thing would be to sabotage myself in League.

I dont think that my 3 titles in 4 seasons are rewarding enough

If for example I'm crazy enough to start again, i would have 4000+ points :)

Season was easier then I expected...

Team already had strong base for my tactic in Van Der Meyde, Dos Santos, Santi Cazorla,trio, and Felaini as DMC. Bringing in Kerzhakov to materialize their efficiency proved to be more than a good signing, although he was injured several times, was just too good goalscorer

I would probably win League without him too...but I wanted to get Top Goalscorer and Top Assist prizes too

This season was ridiculous. I decided to buy only 1 player, which meant I had only 17 good players to choose from, others were pure rubbish.

Toughest thing was winning Top Scorer and Top Assister rewards. I had so many injuries during a season, at one point 9 players weren't able to play due to various reasons. I havent played a game whole season with filled substitutions, at least 3 players at all times werent able to play.
At one time, 3 defenders were injured all on 5 months...

My first attacker was supposed to be Mladen Petric, but he injured like 6 times, so 7 rounds before the end I had to change my plans, and place Stefan Kessling who had 4 goals less than top scorer at that time. Luckily he went on scoring spree.

Same thing happened with Assisters. At one point Rakitic was 6 assists behind Santi Cazorla (7-13), but again luckily Cazorla injured on few months, which made Rakitic possible to catch up, and round before the end Rakitic got 3 assists in one game to finally win that reward.

You're flying through this mate! What tactic u using?

07-09-13, 02:04 PM
I cant really remember in which one, but its in one of the tactics patches.

I used it in online play with couple of friends, it worked great against them, so I continued using non stop.

You can see formation in 2nd screen in every post ;)

It really makes wingers scoring great and often getting lots of assists, always one DMC in a team on MC, and one AMC on MC...once you control mid with this tactic, your attacker will just score mercilessly

However, you need, several very adaptive players, that can play several positions (if you dont have really big squad)

This season may look like it was easy...but really wasnt. Until 28th round, Schalke was only 1 point behind and was playing really good. While I was actually struggling in lots of matches with often clinging victories in last minutes.
But then they suddenly stopped winning in League, a guess with Champions League matches it was too much for them. Yep, they won Champions League.

Uefa Cup

Last season I also played Uefa Cup, but that season was full of injuries, so in 3rd round's 2nd leg (home) 2 of my players got injured, so I got really angry and removed my keeper from goal in order for me to lose...

But that is funny I actually first scored 2 goals without GK...and was leading 3-1, (4-2 on aggregate)..."luckily" they scored in 89th and 90th minute for me to get out.

This season I decided I wanna win it, I had no problems with injuries so here is the screen

Considering my next job is without League Cup, I will maximally be able to get 400 points, and lets just say if I win maximum of 1400 points in next three seasons, I still have potential shot to beat Info's score.

Keep your fingers crossed

Oh man, First, Stuttgart had extremely poor team, so I had to invest a lot in it. That is why 3 transfers, if I did not made them, I think I would battle for mid table.

On the other hand, Werder, my last season's club, became a beast. So I had extremely tough season, and I lost all my hopes for the moment near the end. And it was imperative for me to win it, because several important players did not wanted to sign new contracts, which would make me play with Stuttgart one more season, with even worse team.

So Werder wasn't slipping up at all, 6 rounds before the end, they beat me 3-1, which was my first and only defeat in the whole season, so they extended the lead. And they kept their streak for next 4 rounds.

Then in 33rd round something happened...
They had two away games against HSV and 1.FC Koln...

Table and last round (4 pics)

German Cup
- Real Final was in semis, where I defeated Werder away 3-0

http://s9.postimg.org/wf6ykenkv/kup.png (http://postimage.org/)

Bundesliga - 200
German Cup - 150
Top Scorer - 25

Transfers - -15

Season Total - 360
Challenge Total - 2585 + 360 = 2945

Well, still I have theoretical chance to beat Info's score. However I need maximum number of points, without making any transfers and getting 2 times in a row team that can actually play in German League Cup.

This may fall trough very soon, as only team that is playing League Cup that I still haven't managed is FC Bayern...so I have to get their job or I cant beat Info.

However, I might get lucky, as World Cup is currently going on, so Klinsmann might get their job if Germany fails to reach semis.
He also has insecure status so, my hopes for miracle are still alive :)

Next job
- Not yet sure

08-09-13, 06:42 PM
Season 9

City - Dortmund
Team - Borussia Dortmund

Transfers - only last transfer is mine...if you need more confiramtion tell me...im too lazy to upload another photo :)
http://s8.postimg.org/mg3iyb1ol/kjgdkjdkutj.png (http://postimage.org/)

And all my dreams are gone xD

I should've let Werder win last season's title. As I would play League Cup (most probably win it) and would have safe 2nd place on Challenge Table

But I can't let title just because of points, goal is after all to win German League as much time as possible. That is my little problem with this challenge.

Anyway, I did no get job of Bayern unfortunately, Werder appointed guy from Regional League, while Germany NT appointed BVBs coach.

So I had no other option than take over Borussia.

Season itself wasnt bad, actually it was quite good, my attacker Laux was unstoppable...IRONY really because I had same attacker in Stuttgart and I sold it to Dortmund -.-
Then my attacker in Stuttgart scores 15 goals in whole season -.-
Tell me about FAIL xD

German Cup
http://s21.postimg.org/yzmiu39iv/kup.png (http://postimage.org/)

Bundesliga 200
German Cup 150
Top Scorer 25

Transfers - -5

Season Total 375
Challenge Total 2945 + 370 = 3315

Because TOP 6 clubs, were all that I managed already (as I did not wanted to ruin them after I was done with them...which I easily could everytime so that they dont pose me a threat) I again, cant play in League Cup..which means automatically 100 points less...so maximally I can have 3715 points...which is not even good for 3rd.

Ill play last season just on formality, but Im certain 4th...if I start again...I will have 4500+ points.

I still can brag that I won 8 (most probably 9) bundesliga titles in 10 seasons, with all different teams ;)

Its a good challenge, really good, just points need a little bit tweaking to have less chance for frauding. At the end, goal is to win as much titles as possible. ;)

Next Job
Eintracht Frankfurt - they were 7th last season...they offered me their job by themselves without me even applying

09-09-13, 10:11 AM

I just spend a second season with no job.... I'm restarting this damn challenge....

12-09-13, 04:03 PM
Did the jobs just not come up or did you not get them? Don't forget you can edit your CA/PA.

Craig Forrest
12-09-13, 04:27 PM
The only jobs that came up were Regional jobs.... and I didn't edit my CA/PA and looked at it before I restarted..... it was like 43/57 or something around there.... so I wouldn't have been hired even if there was an opening :D

Craig Forrest
13-09-13, 04:49 AM
This season after the restart I'm killing it..... maybe it's because I know what players actually perform :ok:

Well done on completing the challenge Shabba :ok:

Craig Forrest
17-11-13, 05:05 AM
I'm about 4 or 5 seasons into this one but I've been occupied recently :ok:

21-11-13, 04:56 PM
Finally completed the very first challenge:

I bought 110 players over the 10 years which gives me a lovely start of -550 points:


Only twice I won the league, in my 7th year at Hoffenheim and in my very last year at Stuttgart. I also finished 2nd once with Hoffenheim and 3rd once for Stuttgart. That should take me out of the minus to 190 points:


I won the German Cup only once in my last year at Stuttgart and was runners up in my first year at Hoffenheim. That should take my total to 470 points:


I came runners up in the German League Cup twice in 2010 and 2007 but unfortunately that doesn't get me any points so I stay on 470 points:


I never got a top scorer at Hoffenheim but Ciprian Andrei Marica did so once for Stuttgart so that takes me up to 495 points:


I did manage to get top assists twice (Marica in 08/09 and Brown in 07/08) which should make a grand total of 545 points :


That should be everything! Let me know if I've made a mistake or anything.

Hopefully you've all enjoyed the story I wrote based on this challenge :ok:

22-11-13, 02:37 AM

Craig Forrest
06-12-13, 09:56 PM
So one of my guys finished tied for the lead in assists with 12 but he appears 3rd on the list..... does that count as the 25 points for top assists since technically he's tied for first place?

05-01-14, 04:09 PM
So its a new year - and i want to win King of the Hill 2014 - so why not start from number one and work your way through them !!
I have all the screenies but to save time will upload manager stats and then the ones i cant proof from that screen - If there are any other queries im happy to upload if i realllly need to. (Just very lazy :) ) Ill list every team i managed and just list what i got points for. Also used a 442 tactic :)

In a nutshell i never won the german league cup (once i did but while waiting to change jobs so it doesnt count), won the german cup 6 times and won the league every year with a diff team \o/


Season 1 - Hoffenheim
* Won the league

Season 2 - Rostock
* Won the League
* Won the Cup

Season 3 - Werder Bremen
* Won the League
* Won the Cup
* Top Assists

Season 4 - Borrusia Dortmund
* Won the League
* Won the Cup
* Top Assists
* Top Scorer

Season 5 - Leverkusen
* Won the League

So we have a grand total of :

10 Leagues - 2000 Points
6 Cups - 900 Points
1 Runner up Cup - 130 Points
8 Top Assists - 200 Points
4 Top Scorer - 100 Points
47 Players Bought - -235 Points

Total Points - *** 3095 Points ***

05-01-14, 06:03 PM
Congrats shabba6!

keep going with the other challenges!

10-01-14, 10:00 AM
Good effort Shabba. :ok:

14-01-14, 09:58 PM
Ok, tried this last year and kept getting an error at the end of the first season, so I am giving it another try now. I will post up shortly once i get the update installed.

15-01-14, 09:12 PM
Halfway through the first season and i'm struggling to fight off relegation! Have switched between a few different tactics before settling on a 4-1-4-1 that i created. It worked well for me as barca a few months ago so i'm hopeful i'll pull away from the bottom. Can't see us winning the league now!!

15-01-14, 10:28 PM
Right, after getting relegated in the first season ( i know :lol: ), i'm gonna restart using a tactic made by someone who knew what they were doing

16-01-14, 04:52 AM
You should have kept going!

Don't think I've ever been bothered to re-start challenges

16-01-14, 09:25 PM
You should have kept going!

Don't think I've ever been bothered to re-start challenges

Turns out i restarted and played a couple of months, but forgot to save it :doh:
I guess i'll continue on in the second division :lol:

22-01-14, 09:18 PM
Quick question - am i allowed to edit my ca/pa to get a new job?

23-01-14, 04:21 AM
Don't think so mate - just stick ur nationality as German maybe?
Dont think I did and was fine getting jobs

23-01-14, 11:31 AM
Quick question - am i allowed to edit my ca/pa to get a new job?

I think this only applies for challenges where you need to move country.

27-01-14, 02:30 PM
I've been bogged down with college work recently, I haven't got to play on much. I ended up taking the Düsseldorf job in the third division, so I reckon I'll be doing well to break even on points by the end of this challenge!

18-02-14, 02:08 PM
I will begin this week this challenge with a little more difficulty! I will play only with a default tactic and default team/players instructions!
News soon!

18-02-14, 04:03 PM
Good luck!

19-02-14, 10:18 AM
Qualification rules for german league cup?
Rules for transfers in Germany? Thanks! I have 2 strategies, need this infos To choose one!

19-02-14, 10:40 AM
Read the opening post (first post) in this thread - in page 1

19-02-14, 11:21 AM
My english is so bad! How To qualify in german league cup in general (the 8 first of the german league for example).
And when the transfers Will be over? Is there a winter period for transfers etc...
And as an evidence i have To read the first thread, you're right!!!

19-02-14, 11:51 AM
I am not sure sorry when transfer window finishes or how many teams get into League Cup

20-02-14, 09:12 PM
I think the German League cup is between the top teams from 1st to 8th maybe? I don't really know, just guessing.

21-02-14, 09:22 AM
Ok, The 6 teams qualified for Champions League or UEFA are playing the German League Cup. There is two 1/4 finals and the winners play in 1/2 final between the winner and the runner up of the German League. The transfer window close at the beginning of the german League between German lower clubs, and all transfers closed at the end of January.

21-02-14, 03:54 PM
I always use default tactics (default team and players instructions), so I had to make choices... How can I win rapidly the German League against the Bayern, with few money and very bad defense...There is a big risk: if I don't buy some good players (losing points) and don't finish in the 3 first of the League, 0 pts - 0 money - a poor team.
I will try another strategy, transfering a lot of players for money and trying to build a team for years, scoring each year. So I buy 12 players!!!

GK: D.Hass, Özcan, Zilic (Rijeka). I think it's too dangerous begining the season with the 2 GK of the club...
DL: Ibertsberger, Babayaro (free).
DD: A.Beck, Makanga (free).
DC: Enakarhire (free), Lundqist (free), L.Bah (free)
DM: S.Appiah (free), DeSmedt (free)
AM: F.Copado, Salihovic, Carlos Eduardo, F.Ljungberg (free), DeSouza (free), Cordero (free)
FW: D.Ba, Edu(Obasi), Ibisevic, Drwierga (free)

Not a champion team, but if I sell well, I will have money to buy top players...
Trying not to be the last! I hope more than 1000 pts!!!

24-02-14, 08:21 AM
First season completed. Bought 12 players, 12*5= -60 pts


With a default tactic and instructions:


Finishing third!!! 160 pts


Season 1 : 160-60= 100 PTS

My team is built up for years. Let's continue!!!

24-02-14, 08:46 AM
Good start mate - hopefully title next season!

24-02-14, 09:25 AM
Is it really interesting winning the tittle? I don't know!
A third or a second place with a cup and players points each year will be a high scoring!
And as we say in France, "c'est le jeu ma pauvre Lucette"! It's the game my poor Lucette!!!
I think it's the best way for me to do the more points with my defaults parameters!!! :boxing:

24-02-14, 11:35 PM
Well................Your primary goal is to win as many Bundesliga titles as possible in 10 seasons. EVERY title has to be won with a DIFFERENT club.

So - try to win the title!

25-02-14, 09:59 AM
My primary goal is to score the more points that I can, isn't it?
I'm a little twist-mind, so I will try it, respecting the challenge's rules!!!
BlackyM in a precedent thread give me the idea.
Playing with a default tactic, the difficulties of this challenge are increased:

-Poor difference between a Bundesliga tittle and a second or third place.
-Time wasted searching a club after winning the Bundesliga.
-Not assured that this club will play the League Cup.
-Because of my tactic, I have to buy and buy more very good players to win something: more penalities and a season or two to win tittles.

I will do my Mourinho (Inter Version)!!!
He won the Champion's League with Inter against El Barçà respecting the rules...
But actually playing with Samuel Eto'o as a righback...

I accept the critics, no problem!!! But I respect the rules!!!
I really like to find the best way to score the more points I can, searching the faults of my opponents!!!

It will pay!!! And perhaps I will do this challenge again trying to win each Bundesliga and changing clubs, I'm certain it will be a disaster!!! :peep:

25-02-14, 07:02 PM
Beginning this second season with only one transfer in, -5pts

My team...No changes!

Strike! +25pts

Sometimes you need a bad goalkeeper...:embarassed:

So, for this third season:

+100 pts German League Cup
+180 pts 2nd of Bundesliga
+130 pts Final of German Cup
+25 pts goals
+25 pts assists
-5 pts transferts
= 455 pts + 325 pts
= 780 pts (Season 1-3)

Only 7 more !

07-03-14, 10:18 AM
Season N°4, it seems like perfect! Good and pervert choice I've done!!!

German League Cup Winner, +100pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img607/7584/2sor.png

Second place in Bundesliga, +180pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img203/4945/ihn2.png

Bundesliga Best striker, another time Ibisevic, +25pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img691/1562/1omb.png

Bundesliga more assists, one more time for Ljungberg, +25pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img811/1260/ryxx.png

Only one transfer, our friend Khedira, -5pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img822/3227/0wmf.png

And, first victory in German Cup!!!, +150pts, http://imageshack.com/a/img577/4817/x67v.png

So, Season 4: 100+180+25+25-5+150= 475 + 780 (season 1-2-3) = +1255pts (Season 1-4)

It's a little bit repetitive, but I will go on!

09-03-14, 12:30 AM
nice work!

+1710pts (season 1-5)

11-03-14, 01:13 PM
The problems begin...There is 2 years that The Offenheim board want the title, and I thought that finishing second will be sufisant.
There are just satisfied if I win a cup or two, finish second and go until 1/4 final of the Champions.
My team was at his top the year before and know begin to decline...
If I don't realize good performances in Champions League, and don't win any domestic cups... I could be fired...
In this case, I suppose that it will be over for me... Only winning the Bundesliga allows me a change of club...

11-03-14, 01:15 PM
Season 6,

Eternal Second...http://imageshack.com/a/img30/4413/0klb.png, +180pts

German Cup Winner, a good news, the board was unhappy!!! http://imageshack.com/a/img691/5703/wmbz.png, +150pts

Bundesliga Top Goalscorer, the Great Ibisevic himself!!!http://imageshack.com/a/img547/4176/m3zi.png, +25pts

One transfert because I don't want to be sacked!!! http://imageshack.com/a/img844/314/3ma6.png, -5pts
21M for Kameni(GK), it's a robbery!!!

So, 180+150+25-5=350+1710=2060pts (season 1-6),
4 seasons remaining...

12-03-14, 09:48 AM

So, 100+180+25+25=330pts+2060pts=2390pts (season 1-7)

12-03-14, 11:25 AM
Great stuff! It must be hard 'losing' games to come 2nd all the time though? :)

12-03-14, 11:53 AM
One third of my team is now from my youth academy. One had 8 caps for the Manschaft! But others are very young/very bad.
The difficulty is to loose games with Ibisevic scoring and Khedira / Carlos Eduardo assisting...
And don't forget I'm playing with default tactic!
This year, Babayaro-Lundberg-Lundqist retired, with no transfer, it will be easier to finish second...But very difficult to go far in Champions League...
My Board doesn't boring me since the Champions's victory...
And Ibisevic doesn't want a new contract...I'll have to win the last Bundesliga without him!!! It would be funny finishing second the last year!!! :doh:

So, for this last season: 200+25+150=375pts+3150pts(season 1-9)=3525pts

At the end of this challenge, 43% of the players of Hoffeneim arrived by my youth academy. 2 of them played for Germany (one had 21caps/4goals!!!) and 9 for the -21 Germans.
I made this challenge always playing with a basic default tactic, with a very strange strategy but it was funny!
I won 4 Champions Cup, 1 Super Cup and 3 Intercontinental Cups.

Bundesliga: 1st 200pts, 2nd 1440pts(*8), 3rd 160pts= 1800pts
German Cup: 5 wins 750pts, 1 final 130pts=880pts
German League Cup: 6 wins= 600pts
Top goalscorer: 8 times(Ibisevic*6, Edu*2)=200pts
Top assists: 5 times(1*Carlos Eduardo, 2*Ljungberg, 2*Khedira)=125pts
Transferts: 16 players bought = -80pts

TOTAL 3525pts!!!!

21-03-14, 04:42 PM

Nice twist you did on this and think you are 4th/5th top scorer in challenge!

21-03-14, 05:17 PM
Call me The Brain!!!:violin:
Thanks! Now go to Man City, and with my legendary defensive attitude...it will be difficult to accept conceded so many goals...

22-03-14, 07:15 PM
I'm in season 8 now, I had to take over 2nd division clubs twice and try take them to the top :lol: Currently top of the league at Christmas with Burghausen

30-06-14, 10:56 AM

30-06-14, 11:33 AM

Season 2 update

Qualified for the chumps league beating rangers which i shouldn't of done! No points for Europe, I know why as the idea of the challenge is to win the league and move on. Will not be going near Europe again if i can help it, play the reserves if have too. A little better with tactics using my own 4-1-3-2 and furyofthebeast. HATE not having a reserve team at hoff, as i am a little ocd when it comes to my first team squad being able to see all my players without scrolling down... WEIRDO!!!!

-Only made it the semi finals in league cup being beaten by werder bremen 1-0. No Pts
-Knocked out in second round of German cup dissapointing 1-0 defeat to Hertha. No Pts
-Transfers 4. -20 Pts
-Loans 2. -10 Pts
-Top Goalscorer Demba Ba 25 goals. 25 Pts

21-01-15, 07:45 PM
Nothing cheeky about it, just changed formation to my own on instead of 442cfj. Now at wolfsburg and there squad isnt the best could take me a couple of seasons. Deleted all of the formations that wasnt mine as the game was to easy and i got bored.

Bielefeld, Dortmund, HSV and Hoffenheim all doing well after i managed them must be me... Seen something a bit strange that the semi finals of uefa cup where all german and i think 3 of them where the teams i managed.

25-01-15, 01:32 PM
Season 7 Wolfsburg 7th june start date

Very poor squad, need overhaul, 12 transfers in and 3 loans, David Villa, Michael Owen, Klose and Ashley Cole on frees helped. overall spend was 4.9 mil.
