    Challenge 5 - Who's your Fritz?




    Fritz Walter (31/10/1920 - 17/06/2002)

    Under the guidance of Sepp Herberger, in 1954, Germany won their first ever World Cup. The manner in which the Germans won the Jules Rimet Cup was so inspiring that it went down in history of "the Miracle of Bern" (Das Wunder von Bern)...Rent the movie!

    In no small part was this due to their star player, prodigal Fritz Walter, that Germany beat the Mighty Magyars in the final, after previously having been beaten by them earlier in the tournament. This particular win sparked the German reputation that still goes today; "German sides aren't beaten until they're back in their team bus" and as Gary Bigears said "...and in the end, the Germans have won."

    This Challenge will have you trying to recapture that glorious moment!




    Your Challenge starts right after the Fifa World Cup Final in South Africa and sets you on the road to Rio!

    You'll take over the German National Team in 2010 (make sure the Germans don't win the 2010 WC!!) and try to get them crowned as The Kings of Football in the Home of Football, Brasil!

    As you all know, the 1954 victory was partly inspired by a system that later (actually, right after the tournament) became known as the WM (weltmeister) system. It featured 5 attackers deployed in a W and 5 defenders on the pitch in an M formation. Looks like this:




    This is the formation you'll have to use. Arrows and instructions are all up to you, but mind you: this is a non-wibwob challenge!!

    To make it a little harder (yes, we ARE bastards), your squad may consist only of U-25 players, at the start of your campaign!

    Additionally, you may pick one of your players to be your Fritz.
    Fritz's goals and assists will be worth gold, as they will translate into a massive amount of bonus points!

    TARGET:

    -WIN THE 2014 BRASIL WORLD CUP!
    With an all U-25 at the start, in the famous (but non-wibbed) WM system!
    -Have your Fritz crowned as Golden Boot!



    RULES:


    -Use March 2009 Update with Tapani patch
    -Do not wib and do not wob
    -Pick only players under the age of 25 (date of check:31 august 2010) (that means that any replacement player/ regen you call up cannot be older than 29 come 31 august 2014)
    -Pick a Fritz in advance

    I'm sure we'll add rules as we go...

    Requirements (screens):

    -An overview of your starting squad (age)
    -An overview of manager stats after final game
    -An overview of fixtures played
    -A screen of every achievement (qualification, golden boot, etc)
    -A screen of Fritz every year

    We may add some along the way...

    Points:

    1000 pts for winning the World Cup
    500 for second place
    300 for third place
    150 for fourth place

    100 for reaching quarter finals
    50 points for qualifying

    10 points per goal scored in an official match (non friendly)

    500 for having Fritz win the Golden Boot
    300 for having Fritz win second place
    150 for having Fritz win third place

    Bonuspoints:

    For every goal and every assist Fritz makes, you get ten extra points!

    (For example, Mario Gomez, as your Fritz, plays 25 matches in the challenges and scores 20 with 5 assists. He would then earn you 250 extra points.)

    Possible ways to cheat:

    -use older players in matches that do not require screenies
    -use wibwob techniques anyway
    -use a different formation in the games themselves
    -take over a club and train your Fritz under a different manager name
    -etc..

    No way on Earth can we exclude all ways to cheat. Again, we aren't the Challenge Gestapo...

    So, please, play in the spirit of the game and stick to the rules,ok?

    Righto - challenge complete!

    Challenge 5 - Who's your Fritz?
    ========================

    Fritz chosen was MARIO GOMEZ

    Friendlies and Euro qualification all went well. Euro 2012 went even better as we only went and won the damn thing! Top stuff and formation working well with youngsters. Fritz even got a mention!






    Again - World Cup Quals all went well and GOMEZ had a good couple of seasons and generally scored well as Fritz (more of that below).

    Sadly - he wasn't really firing during World Cup. We got through the group and then had Holland in 2nd round - tough draw!

    We went a man down - DISASTER!

    But ended up wining anyway 2-0 -




    Quarter Final and again - tough draw vs a Ronaldo inspired Portgual

    Started off by going into the lead but Portugal overpowered us and won 3-1



    The end of my adventure!

    Pretty gutted actually as we showed great form for the years leading up to it

    SCORES
    ======
    100 points for getting to Quarter Finals
    Fritz was nowehere near golden boot
    Assist and Goals from Fritz for entire challenge = 280 points

    Total points challenge = 380 points

    All Fixtures, Manager Stats/Squad Age and Fritz Goals/Assist are all in the links below

    Thanks for an enjoyable challenge guys!

    "-Pick only players under the age of 25 (date of check:31 august 2010) (that means that any replacement player/ regen you call up cannot be older than 29 come 31 august 2014)"

    that 29 age is wrong right?

    I started at 3/7/2010 is that ok?


    got it, august 2014

    Took control of the "B" and the U-21's also, probably first time in any national career. Good to find right players

    "B" team doesnt have a fixture tho.

    Bonjour la compagnie!
    A question: 10 points per goal scored in an official match (non friendly), ok. But what about the goals and the assists of my Fritz on friendly games?
    Thanks

    Friendlies don't count, nothing stopping you from arranging a ton of friendlies so your Fritz scores/assists more.

    Apologies mate, forgot you manage the national team! No you can't arrange international friendlies unfortunately, but no points can be earned from friendlies though.

    If you change your "Fritz" then you need to restart the challenge I think....
