    Longest Save Game?

    What is the longest save game you have played before it crashed or you lost total interest?
    Without holidaying that is.

    I have just clocked over 21 days playing time on one. 16 managers tho, so it's only about 2018 or something. Been going at it for about 18 months, amidst other saves.

    And even with holidaying, what's your longest? What's the furthest into the future anyone has gone?

    I played the Nationals Only and Roman General challenges for about 20-25 years.... Red9 (who I don't think is around anymore) had a game he holidayed over 200 years into the future to see what had happened in the game

    50-something seasons in the Finnish(!) leagues on ODB, managed two clubs in total.

    Remember that, he made the save game available too, must be on the old server.

    Played for around 40 seasons before i got bored, I never used to move around but in that game I discovered it's the best way. Now I have to load at least 5 leagues on new games to keep it interesting for longer. After gaining rep around all your active leagues you feel like the Sir Alex of the game

    Funny you should say that. Finland is my longest. Was started on the Feb 2011 DB. One club. Chosen for their funny name. I play and holiday this one. I played the first 20 or so years then holidayed and I dip in for a few 5/6 season blasts here and there.


    The year is 2142. No non-Finnish side has won the Champions League since Inter Milan in 2096.
    Blackbird have so much money, they made 480m in interest last season.

    My Centurion story was my longest, about 60 seasons and 100 jobs. Need to dig out the final save to find out how much of my life I frittered away playing it

    Never had a game anywhere near this long. However me and my uni housemate played about 18-20 seasons two player on LAN.
    We started as Arsenal and Liverpool on the ODB and pretty much used to compete with Man U every season for the premier league. Neither of us were that good at the game though. Don't think we ever won the champs league!

    Now starting to wonder if I've still got the save sitting somewhere...

    Since I bought Cm0102 when it was released

    I have only ever had three saved games.

    My current game with San Marino has 9 managers, and I have been playing for 17 days, although due to the fact I have so many teams and often have the game running so I can write up my story, I am nearing the end of season six.

    my original game played over a few years was about 10 seasons I think, my second game played I guess on and off over about 8 years crashed at the end of season 15. this led me to uninstall the game and throw it away.

    Then I read about this site on Wikipedia, bought the game and got addicted again

    I have a save where I have been managing until 2037, and with 3 managers simultaneously, which takes a little longer. Playing in many countries, switching clubs, trying different challenges. I haven't totally lost interest in it, but I haven't played for a few months now. A question of time, I guess. And of focus. When I get back to the game, I also think about it while I'm not playing, that's a bit intrusive. So when I need to concetrate on other things, I just cut the CM playtime completely for a while.

    28 days, 14 Hours, 57 minutes and 32 seconds of game time

    I can give this game up whenever I want, really I just don't want to.

    Is that why she dragged you off to Kiwi-land for a while?

    Had a game with Celtic, won the league 15 times out of 17 seasons played.

    Got to six Champion's League finals, somehow lost all six, losing one to Rangers on penalties!!! That hurt a bit. Pawel Brozek was a hero for me in that game.

    I'll upload a screenshot of my longest save game on Friday.

    I'm in the year 2100 and something and started at 2001...

    Was in charge of Arsenal for about 60 years, then Colchester United, a few national jobs in between and now Scunthorpe. Haven't played this one for a few months mind...might get back on it.

    Been playing my drinking 0001 game most Fridays for almost 6 years since 2008 and in that time I have managed 26 seasons & have about 7 clubs & 3 national jobs on go at same time.

    Easily my best career game & look forward to playing it every weekend.

    Did a top premier league team over get relegated to the conference?
    What was san marinos biggest ever win?
    Does any team in serie a or la liga have a stadium over 5000?
