    Ultimate Managers League - Rebooted!

    Alright I've come up with a new format that will hopefully steer this thing away from being a DTL clone (although I will keep some elements of it) and I hope you're interested.


    The Format
    Each manager will have a team created in the lowest playable league in England. The goal is simple: guide your team through the lower leagues of English football to as much success as possible. The end of this will be reached when one of the managers wins the Champions League with his team and thus becomes the Ultimate Manager.

    You will get 26 randomly generated youngsters (2 for each position and 1 extra GK, defender, midfielder and forward) with a set CA/PA value matching the division you're starting in (this is the same concept as in my Almere Boys story)

    Every week you will provide a tactic + lineup to me for one month ingame. The tactic needs to be non wibwob, has to have at least 3 players in the backline and wide players somewhere on the pitch (this is how it was in the UML) I will set your tactic + lineup and will holiday one month ingame every two weeks (this is the same as in DTL although longer deadline).

    Your players will score points for all sorts of things: first team apps, sub ins, goals, assists, etc. which can be used to upgrade you players attributes, CA/PA, reputation and whatever can be edited in a save game editor ((same as in the 'Road to Glory'). The points will not be gathered per player, but as a total 'points pool' that you can spend on any player. So you can spend all the points gathered on one player or on several, that's up to you. Also you can spend points each month, but saving them up and spending them in 1 go is also allowed. If you want to spend points, you'll need to submit that before the same deadline as the tactic/lineup deadline.

    Each club will have the same starting stadium size which can be increased during the game with points gathered. We'll be using the ingame finances to handle the transfers stated below so you'll need to keep investing in your club as well to stay competitive.

    In the summer transfer window you will be allowed to haggle for eachothers players and there will be one special auction where you can acquire up to three players from other CPU clubs using the ingame finances of your clubs. These players will be of the level of your current teams so don't expect world class players in the lowest leagues.

    The save game will carry on into the next seasons which is a major difference than existing/previous formats where each season gets restarted freshly. This will mean that you can develop your players fully to their potential.

    There will be room for max. 15 managers as I need one slot open to make CPU transfers (the game allows max. 16 managers to be added). I want to give the managers who participated in the first season of the UML a guaranteed slot if they're interested so they will be allowed to sign up first. After that this will be open for anyone who's interested (requirements are listed below) and we'll fill up the spots first come, first serve.


    Requirements
    To particpate in this you'll need to use the GK save game editor to see the values of the attributes of your players. I'm not going to make screenshots of every player of your team for each month (I'm crazy, but not THAT crazy! ). You can download that editor here: https://champman0102.co.uk/downloads.php?do=file&id=16. I'll make a YouTube tutorial on how to use it.

    Also you need to be commited. This will be a game for the long term so if you can't commit, don't do it. I will simulate a month ingame every TWO weeks so you'll have two weeks to do your point spending and tactics/lineups. I do this on purpose to not put that much pressure on everyone as there can be moments where you don't have the time. Also we'll put this on hold during vacation periods so don't worry going on a vacation and missing out.


    That's it for now. Mark, Redknapp69, Erkifino, evesham, AJ and London35 have a guaranteed spot if they want as they wanted to stay in the UML after the first season. Let me know down below if you're interested and/or if you have any questions. I'll provide a form to fill in for setting up the teams after the registration has been handled and we've got enough people to get this thing going!

    Cheers!

    Sounds like quite the ordeal, but I'm in!

    Do we get to choose what team we get, or do we get to name our own team?

    That's why I give everyone two weeks time to do their submissions rather than the usual one week so you don't have to rush anything. If two weeks moves to slow forward we can always go to one week.

    I'll create a team that you get to name and add that one in the lowest playable league instead of an existing one. I'll post up a form with info I need for that when we've got enough managers!

    Hmm, not too sure whether I'll get involved in this. Just sounds like a lot to keep track of on top of the other stuff I've also signed up for. Sure you'll fill the places out though

    Jup it was a good idea. I've mixed it with some of my own thoughts and came up with this!

    Perhaps I should've credited you?

    Count me in! As they are made up players can we name them as well?! Happy to do this myself if you send me the save file

    Are we all starting in the same division? I like the fact we’ll progress in-game as opposed to restarting each season! Though it will be long running - will take approximately half a year in real life per season; that doesn’t bother me though

    Look forward to it. With the Road to Glory, Vipers and the Scout Story I’m going to have to take on ChampMan as a part time job!

    This.
    I'm one of those who can't guarantee my commitment what with other stuff (hence my drop down the divisions in DTL) so I'll miss out but wish the best of luck. Sounds like a good one.

    Naming our own players sounds cool!

    If that's what you want than by all means go ahead.

    And yes Jay, you will all start in the lowest playable league in England.

    Once we've filled out all the manager slots I'll post up a form for what I need from your team/players!

    Hmmm...


    Hmmm...


    Hmmm...


    This is without a doubt an excellent format Raymundo. I would be in like a man's name beginning with F if you had stuck to vanilla formations rather than letting people mangle their own...but hey...


    let's give it a go and see what happens!

    So does that mean you're in?

    Sticking to Vanilla formations would copy the DTL and that's something I want to stray away from to keep things fresh.
