...do as the Asians do!

Your task is to dismantle the best ODB team and create an all-Asian Roma!

This is a special challenge for all the ODB players out there.

RULES

- as already stated, you have to use 3.9.60 database
- no tactics restriction, except for the usual - you have to have at least 3 players in your defensive line and/or wide players somewhere
- you have 5 seasons for this challenge, BUT you have to use the first season for shifting the players
- by the time the first Serie A game of the 2nd season kicks-off, you must not have non-Asian players in your team
- you get no points for the first season, only the results in 2.-5. season count, i.e. the time when you have only Asians in the team

POINTS

- once again, no points for the first season

Serie A
Winner - 100
2nd Place - 90
3rd Place - 80

Italian Cup
Winner - 100
Runner up - 90
Semi-finalist - 70

UEFA Cup
Winner - 150
Runner up - 130
Semi-finalist - 100

Champions League
Winner - 200
Runner up - 170
Semi-finalist - 150

SCREENSHOTS

- the usual, squad screenie(s) to prove you have no non-Asian players and everything to prove your points

NOTES

- According to FIFA, there are 46 Asian associations, but we obviously won't count Australia so that leaves us with 45 nations (http://www.fifa.com/worldfootball/nationalteams/confederations/confederation=25998/index.html)
- second nationalities do not count

Good luck!

Hi, i would like to try this chalenge but i have only one doubt: i usually play with only two tactics: 4-3-1-2 or 4-1-3-2, both of them with 3 central midfielders, 4 defenders in line and 2 central forwards. Can i use this tactic? Because you say that we can use 3 defenders and/OR wide players somewhere and i want to make shure before i start.
And one more question, can i select the asian leagues to load more players or it has to be the italian league only?

It's my first try with your chalenges and that's why i'm making all this questions.

You can use both those tactics. Youre not allowed to use tactics that don't incorporate any wide men (for example 3-1-3-1-2) or tactics that use two defenders. Loading of additional leagues is perfectly allowed.

In reallity i never tought that this would be such a difficult challenge, and why is that? The answer is very simple: there are no good asian defenders or goalkeepers!


But first things firts: My minimum objectives to this challenge is to win at least one Serie A and one Uefa Cup, make a decent team composed mainly from young asian players and improve them, so that possibly in the 5th season i could aim to win the Champions League.
- Just reached January of 2002 and my four last non-asian players just left the club, i had to keep them until now so i could make some points in the league that would keep me safe from getting fired: Totti went to Barcelona, Walter Samuel to Arsenal, Pelizzoli to Real Madrid and Montella moved to Dortmund.

Here is my squad:

Reserve Team:

Tactic:
http://img547.imageshack.us/img547/1843/ttica.png

Results:
- Serie A: 14 games, 5 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses, 21 goals scored and 24 goals conceeded (so that you can see how bad my defense is)
- Still in the Italian Cup, but just got Juventus so probably wont pass to the next fase;
- Champions League: Passed the first group stage with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 lost game, 16 goals scored, 5 conceeded; Got Liverpool, Maiorca and Schalke in the next fase, first game a draw 2-2 away at Liverpool and next beated Schalke at home by 4-1.

Results:

Best signings so far are:
-Yoon Hwa-Pyung from Kangnum Agricultural High School for 100 thousand €, and has in 24 matches scored 13 goals.
- Hiroshi Nanami from Jubilo for 15 million €, with 25 games, 4 goals, 7 assists (top of my team);
- Yoon Jong-Hwan, from Cerezo, 10 million €, 24 games, 5 goals, 7 assists;

Sorry for the images in portuguese, but when i try to change the language the game crashes. And i don't know how to put images here, if someone can help me i would thank you.

There are some good young Asian keepers if I remember rightly - search on handling and reflexes and order sure the ones I had were both young but had good potential and worked out well

Just to clarify - second nationalities are allowed, yes? I have used 2 players like this. Both are from Russian republics. One of them is Tajik-Russian(or Belarus, not sure). And other one is a key player for me with dual nationality - Belarus-Kazakh. In the game(2001) Kazakhstan are AFC members, but they are not such as of 2002. So can I use them both or I should start over? :/ (I have 1 season left to finish the challenge by the way)

As clearly stated in the 1st post, 2nd nationalities do not count... therefore whatever their first nation is will determine if they are from an Asian country or not... so if your Tajik guy has that as his first nation he is Asian... the second guy you are out of luck.... neither Belarus or Kazahkstan are listed in the 45 countries (not including Australia) that are part of the Asian Zone according to FIFA.... check the link in the first post :ok:

10-06-13, 09:57 AM
Well, Kazakhstan are in Asian zone in the game. I checked and searched from there - Asian countries, but moved to UEFA in 2002. And Kazakhstan is more Asian than Iran, Iraq and Syria maybe, but anyway. At the start he is youth player and plays his first international games for Belarus, because they are better than Kazakhstan. :)
Guess it will be tougher without my best defender(also won defender of the year!!! in Seria A, among best youth player in my third season I think), but anyway I will give it a go :)

So on the second try it is almost too easy, at least first several seasons. Getting harder after the 3d, but still able to maintain pretty good results. I shipped out original Roma players pretty late, but was able to make good mix with new asian signings, and won the treble. Strangest thing Montella and Totti were 20mill each, no more than Candela. Go figure...Anyway at the time for supercup game with Lazio, the team was already all asian.
First team - http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/4011/ix.jpg
and reserves - http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/7524/r9xm.jpg
Along the time of the challenge the derby with Lazio went on to new hights, and they were my main problem. Even tooked me one title with only 3 loses and 3 draws for entire season. - http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/7845/icuh.jpg
But we were pretty successful in Italian Cup and Champions League also - http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/7610/mvfh.jpg and http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/5254/77b.jpg
We won also several supercups - http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/4188/zqfi.jpg and http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/5220/tr59.jpg
And couple Intercontinental cups - http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/12/20px.jpg
Best signings would be Nishizawa - 3 times goalscorer, 1 time player of the year; Nanami and Nakata - constant asists and goals; Cheng Liu - 3 times young player of the year; Song Jong Kook - 1 time defender of the year, constant performances all the way, alongside Lee Young-Pyo ; Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi - 2 times goalkeeper of the year.
Used tactic - UTL 4-5-1 Normal, with little changes of my own.
And the transfers through the 5 years - http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/2993/c8ao.jpg , http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/6783/lv5y.jpg , http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/1224/lx3u.jpg , http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/687/jjmb.jpg , http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/1621/jpud.jpg , http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/2360/91fa.jpg .
At the end, after 4 points seasons - Seria A 3 times winner, 1 time runner up; CL - 2 times winner, final and semi-final; Italy cup - quarter final and 3 times winner; Italy Super cup - 3 times winner; European Super cup - 2 times winner; Intercontinental cup - 2 times winner
All in all, in my calculations - 1830 points. Pretty good I think, and went on to suffer(at least I think I will) with Milan in Total football challenge :)

Season 2 start, got all the players I wanted, with the exception of Sun Jihai, who went to Sedan... bastard. Got Nakata this time, for just 22 million. Still, how I'm gonna win the league with this team is beyond me.

21-10-13, 11:06 PM
As expected, season 2 was a disaster. Last match day, I passed Fiorentina for 7th and a UEFA Cup berth, which saved me from losing the job.
I tip my hat to the maestros that managed to get those high scores.
And now... splash the cash:

I have kept 11 world class players for the first season: http://imgur.com/dVT0Qhr
Italian champion, and losing in penalty session in final of italian cup, and Champions League!!!
Totti sold for 47M, at the end I have Nakata (Parma) in my team for 50M cash plus Antonio Carlos.
Only Walter Samuel in my team, waiting for his work permit (July 2002).

Okay, I suck at this.

In season one I cleared out the squad as quickly as possible – best to get on with it I figured. I then nearly lost my job several times, finishing 6th in the league eventually. But I achieved the all Asian squad...

http://i.imgur.com/ihUcaZq.png

Season two was a little better – 4th in the league, but no points having gone out of the cups early. Season three saw me register my first points as we reached the final of the Italian Cup, only to get thumped over two legs by the hated Lazio. We finished 7th in the league and exited the UEFA Cup early. Season four was a bit of a re-run. We reached the cup final, again, and lost to Lazio, again. We finished a place lower in 8th and couldn’t get beyond the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup.

http://i.imgur.com/OkYPn6k.png

Season five was a bit (just a bit) of an improvement, in that we got to the semi finals of the UEFA Cup and finished 3rd in the league.

http://i.imgur.com/P9yjxIa.png

http://i.imgur.com/CHUXLHe.png

So a grand total of:
- 2 x runners up in the Italian Cup = 180
- 1 x semis of the UEFA Cup = 100
- 1 x 3rd place in the league = 80

That’s a pathetic total of 360 points. I’ll try something easier next time!

Started this and season one flew by with a big mistake on my side. Started letting players go so as I am buying asians I am training and playing them so seson 2 won't catch me by surprise. Unfortunatelly, didn't foresee that they won't be eligible for CL so through the second group stage I barely made a functional first 11, no subs :) Didn't really care eventually but I though it would have been a nice addition. Got knocked out by Dortmund from Quarter finals.

However, managed to lean Seria A without much problem as I got a significant lead start. Also, the Italian cup after a final with Milan.

Overall, sold players for 220M, some going out really cheap unfortunatelly - like Walter Samuel going to Man Utd for 3.5m only to be later bought by Arsenal for 50M :O
Bought enough experienced players with a late sesason Nakata.

So, season 2 was about to start with my all-asian team.

Serie A : - is there still a way to see the full league tables now?

If you go on your managerial stats it should say what position you finished in in the league.

Best of luck with the challenge :ok:

Season 2 begun with high hope. Managed to get most of the transfer I wanted with a couple of yungsters to fill the squad if needed.

Managed to win serie A without any problems:

However, Lazio got their revenge in the cup semi final with a 6-3 agg win :(

Champions league was going pretty smothly with a phase 2 group with Arsenal, Real and Dortmund from which we qualified

However, Lazio got their revenge in the semi-finals as well. Thought that a 1-0 lead in the first leg at home will be enough. Boy, was I wrong :

Season 3 begun and after a few transfers in and out (got rid of some asians that didn't develop that well after training) was hoping for at least a CL final.

Inter with a beautiful performance managed to win Serie A by 10 or 9 points if I remember correctly (didn't take a screenshot of the table unfortunatelly)
By the time they had 10 points and was hoping for them to stumble into a draw or lose, I got the same result as them in my games so no chance of catching up:(

However, this allowed me to focus on CL. After a 6-2 overall win over Dortmund in the quarter finals I managed to get my revenge from last season from Lazio in the semi finals with an away goal qualification :

The final . What can I say, the final really was a rollercoster ride but managed to win agains Milan. The Asians took the trophy home. To Rome, not anywhere in Asia though :)

I guess that the Italian Cup early knock-out helped the CL performance. Bologna knockd-us out from the quarter finals after a 0-0 dull draw and a penalty shoot-out :(

Currently in the 4th season now, Inter still giving me troubles in Serie A, not sure how we can manage to be winners. Hoping for a CL semi-final if we're lucky in the draw. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks, noticed that it says what position you finished but I was thinking if there is a way to see the full table from that season. If not, i'll make sure to take screenshots as they end

Ok, managed to finish the challenge. Fun one, some frustration over some of the player names and with me not being able to remember them all. Had to spend some time when makins subs.

Also, in hindsight, should've focused maybe a bit more on the Italian Cup - managed to win it only once.

Being at my folks for Christmas gave me the chance to finish off a challenge I started in the summer when I was looking after the old man (and give me a break from my disaster that is the England challenge)...

I liked this challenge but actually found it quite easy, selling all the good players at the start gave plenty of cash to get the decent and much cheaper Asian players.

Overall here's my points:

Obviously the points scoring must be different now from when it first started as there are 3 people on the leaders board who have scores that even full marks can't match!

Only blemishes were two champions league defeats, to the mighty Ajax and then the giants that are Celtic... who says this game isn't realistic! (To think I was happy when they overturned a first leg deficit to knock Barca out of the Semis!)

Screen shots of trophies, total transfers in/out and squads at the start of the 2nd season and end of the 5th can be found here:

Thank you all again for coming up with these challenges to help keep the game fresh! Oh and Merry Christmas and all that - suppose I should go and socialise with the family now... (I wonder if they have the football on!)

Made the mistake of doing well in season 1, now the board expects success. Champions League and League double.

Now ready for the start of season 2 with this group! Spent 78m in total first and second season. Looking forward to struggling!

Finished When In Rome today and thoroughly enjoyed it I have to say. Nice to see some new faces I have never signed before and see how they develop.
Huge standout in the final season was Chinese central defender Liang Wang, most tackles per game in the league and third highest rating of all players.

As for points in the challenge, it wasn't so successfull.

After gaining no points obviously for my league and Champions League double in season 1, it took me a while to get on the board.

Season 2 was a complete write off, points wise. So on to season 3.

A defeat in the Cup Quarter final by Juventus, and failing to qualify for Europe from the previous year meant only the league would earn my points.
https://s8.postimg.cc/vo88rl2f9/When_in_Rome_season_3_league.png

A credible, third place, so 80 points towards the total, thank god!

Season 4 saw a huge improvement, but a loss in QF of the Champions League bu Juventus meant no points there. Again, Juventus beat me in the quarter final of the Italian Cup, very frustrating. They were proving to be my nemesis.
League...
https://s8.postimg.cc/o88z5su5h/When_in_Rome_season_4_league.png

Thankfully their exploits in the cup meant they couldn't keep up with me in the league, and the title came back to Rome!! 100 points

Season 5 was going to be successful I thought, but it turned in to real frustration. The Italian Cup saw me finally reach the semi final, against, you guessed it, Juventus.
https://s8.postimg.cc/s4mb1rrzp/When_in_Rome_-_season_5_Italian_Cup_semi.png

A nightmare second Leg left me furious. 70 points!

After winning the first two games in the 2nd phase of the CL, I was looking good, but the final four games saw keepers averaging 9.5 against me, as I scored 2 goals and only managed 2 points. Going out on goal difference to Valencia, I was furious, and needed to win the league.

The league saw myself and Juventus going neck and neck all season. We had both lost just 1 game when it came to game 33 at the Delle Alpi in Turin...
https://s8.postimg.cc/uypgf89lh/When_in_Rome_v_juventus_game_33.png

Finally managed to get one over on them!!

https://s8.postimg.cc/paj5ockol/When_in_Rome_season_5_league.png

My best league season in the last year, and another 100 points.

2 titles, 1 third place, and a semi final. But a smiling face = 350 points!

Finally got a decent striker. We did not score much more but at least this is the first season we score average of 2+ goals per game in Serie A. We won Italian Cup Final first leg 1-0 against Lazio. Second Leg was intense but Yanagisawa was super sub scored a winning goal. Champions League Final against Lazio again but it was an easy win (with some luck as we are rewarded with on own goal :D and one penalty)

Italian Cup: Winner +100

This was initially pretty fun, but after the initial mad rush there isn't much you could do with your squad.

The only reason I had the initial Data Base installed was that I just started using Nicks patch. It was fun to see names like Battistuta, but the football world did feel a lot smaller then. A lot less options for players.

After adding Nakata before the 3rd season (2nd scoring season) it felt like the team was done. I did pick up Seol who starts at Antwerp just before the last scoring season. Wish I found him earlier as he scored 51 goals from 61 games.

We finally picked up some points from Europe in the final season which felt like a nice way to end it. 2006 World Cup squads were announced and I had 11 players in each of the Korean and Japanese teams and 5 in the Chinese one.
