    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.

    Any questions? Let me know!
