    To Be The Best, You Got To Beat The Best - Season 2

    Enough of you have said to be interested in bringing this back so here's some more information on how this will be done.

    The general idea:

    A total of max. 12 managers who will battle it out against one another in a series of 1 season challenges. Each season they will 'create' a team through drafts 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:

    - For season 2 we will use the Saturn v8 patch with the latest October 2019 update.

    - You get to create a custom team in the Premier League which you will stick with throughout the series. Those of you who already have created a team will keep it unless you want to change something.

    - 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 any of the standard formations 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. So I will not select a fixed formation for you like in season 1.

    - Squad submission will be weekly so a season will be run in 10 weeks. I will holiday each month and post screenshots for results.

    - 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.


    Now about the draft.

    Each team will have to assemble a squad of 24 players in a total of 12 drafts. I will do a random draw to create the order of picking, but will make it so that each manager will get first pick in any one of the drafts. Each manager picks two players per draft with the first pick being in descending order (1 to 12) and the second pick being in ascending order (12 to 1). The drafts themselves will be varied and randomized with enough players to pick. Since you can choose your own standard formation you have the freedom to pick whatever players you need for your squad. So no more 2x RB, 2x LB, 4x DC, etc.


    Any questions? Let me know!

    So I will not select a fixed formation for you like in season 1.

    I kinda liked that. We all had to fight with the same weapon. Makes for perfect comparison material. This is also how Bridge works, which I played for years.

    True, but not with the same material available.

    There are not 12 players of the same quality available for most positions. It would come down to how lucky you were in the specific draft.

    Want to try it without the restriction to see how it goes.

    So far 8 of you who have returned to give it a go.

    No word from Dermotron, riise, adnams and mikecoxon though.

    I will give them a few more days to respond after which I will look for more managers in chat.

    Been told by Mark that we're moving to a new place so will put this on hold until we have moved.

    Gives Dermo perhaps a chance to join back in after the heat of updating is over and Mark said he might join once we're at the new place

    Will be continued for sure
