Same as the others. Mo wib wob. Flat back 4. Other than that I think it is free for all.

We have to agree on leagues etc though.

But any ideas are most welcome :ok:

Have no plan. Was just checking for interest. Everyone is welcome to come with ideas.

Days and times will be agreed on.

Flat back four and no wibwob should be hardcoded imo.

How many players will you wait for? All in same League?

Janis89
03-09-14, 03:43 PM
All in the same league is most fun. New update is not out before maybe October. So have good time to make some rules etc.

Feel free to share any ideas.

I liked the old network games very good and the rules we had there. So I will aim for that.

3 or 4 players is minimum. Over is prefered :P

Tuesday night would be good for me, 7ish UK time

Maybe a planned routine for session, i,e,

session 1, sort squads,bid for players etc...
session 2, kick off 1st league games

I'd suggest making 2-3 Hammi groups, post em or pm them with password and go from there

Great stuff, thanks a lot for PM Offside Trap. I've done all steps so I should do fine! Tuesday's 7ish should be fine for me also.

Right - downloaded and installed that Hamachi thing and deleted the file from CM folder and double clicked ip file (which did nothing)

What's next?

Thanks for the pm as well offside trap!

I am interested too. I never tried a network game, i remember trying to set up a game with 2 friends, connecting cables etc but something was missing. We also want to play a game with member Tsakas but we haven't done it yet. I have Hamachi installed and playing ODB right now.

Janis89

Will be no problem getting everyone set up when due time. As long as you don`t have Vista or something similar :lol:

My intention was to check for interest and start when the new update comes out.

But if people really wanna play asap. We could always set up a game with the March edition.

And I`ve given out links on how to get everything set up :

Let me know guys! :ok:

dropping out of this chaps. New update out soon with will start on that

Janis89
24-06-15, 01:43 PM
Alright boys whos`s interested

No Wib\wob

Min 3 defenders and 2 wide men

One set day for example Sunday where everyone can participate. This is crucial the first 6-12 months in game so people don`t lag too far behind and lose interest

Can do original db or the latest odb update

Have a few other ideas, but checking for interest first


And if anyone have any ideas please post them here or pm me :ok:

a few things ive noticed playing network games the last few yrs...

the more people who play the more the game dies...
regular times/days works ok....but u need to have a certain percentage to play the game...fair that way.....say 6 players...4 must be online to play etc...
no passwords so people can be put on holiday...
a set time to bid for players during off season etc.....then keep stuff to when others are playing....slow play is the biggest frustration....


there are more ...but thats ok for starters

there are more ...but thats ok for starters

1 - Agreed. Been a while. But iirc the sweet spot is 4-6 . Have had good games with 3. Can not recollect a good game with 6 + though


2 - Agreed. Need 1 or 2 set days for the game to run. And everyone should be there for the first sessions. That way they can remould their squad and there would be no problem holidaying until the next transfer window (at least that is what I would want for my team ) And after the start up sessions are done the majority should be there for a session to be ran - 4 out of 6 is a good call. And these session where people are missing should not be very long ideally. Transfer windows
and end of season is crucial imo.
3 - Agreed. Passwords should be banned. They are only hindering the flow - no one cares about your shortlist or how you amend the training

4 - Agreed. Off season shopping is okay. But it should not get in way of the game speed, a good flow is crucial -And as you say set times 20min for example would be a good way to handle that

More ideas\thoughts are most welcome

I can't commit at the mo mate - work is crazy busy and not much champing as I'd like at the mo :(

Ok - My View -

Have set rules from the very start,

Create a Hamachi group with all participants in

Ideally, use Hamachi chat instead of CM Chat, so ensure you're playing the game win Window form, I only use CM Chat when we're playing our 6-way game as we all dont fit into 1 Hamachi group (Unless you pay for an increased amount)

Accept that 1 day wont be good for 1 another etc.. so get into the habit of being online via Hamachi so others know you're about and possibly able to have a session

Leave offline messages on Hamachi as a form of communication

If you get chance, try get in any session, even if it's half hour here and there, they all count.

Have weekly save on

Be respectful in all aspects, as crashes will occur and sometimes you might lose a vital game and have to replay it, so accept this is part of the parcel in a game being a success

Have banter, makes the game form fun, such as mickey taking, that sort of stuff

Build a rapport with people wanting to play, if you're looking at long term game, dont let every Tom Dick or Harry join the game as potentially, they could ruin the game


Hope this helps
