    Challenge 29 - O Rei and Monstro Sagrado

    Challenge 29 - O Rei and Monstro Sagrado



    In honour of the deaths of both Eusebio and Mario Coluna in early 2014, your challenge team (and Duke29) have decided to create a special Benfica challenge.


    - Use March 2014 DB
    - Take control of Benfica for 2 seasons
    - Sign 2 players with African/Portuguese dual nationality (need to get around the foreign players in the team limit and there are only 4 Mozambique/Portugal players so I'm opening it up slightly...) players to be your point scorers. One must be a forward and one must be a midfielder
    - Try and win the Champions League 2 years in a row

    Restrictions


    Benfica played a 3-3-4 formation with 2 FCs and a FR and FL… I won’t force you to use an identical formation but the top of your formation must look like this



    As usual you can use arrows but no wib-wob, no cheat tactics, and a minimum of 3 defenders


    Can’t buy anyone apart from the 2 players mentioned above
    No loans in
    Don`t care about players out

    Scoring

    Every goal from your 2 bought players = 5 points
    Every assist from your 2 bought players = 10 points
    Every MoM from your 2 bought players = 25 points
    First Champions League win = 1000 points
    Second Champions League win = 2000 points
    League win = 250 points
    Portuguese Cup = 200 points

    Screenies

    Anything to prove your points
    Transfers In/Loans In screens
    Tactics

    Enjoy

    You can choose to create the game yourself, or download a pre-loaded save

    Gonna be a tough one with only 41 Mozambicans in the DB!

    Very interesting though. Make sure to use Max DB

    Bloody hell - they ain't half got some foreign players - only allowed to play 4 in league!

    But in CL I think you can play them all!

    Ya the days of getting Eusebio or Columba from Mozambique are long gone.... but you only need two..... and they don't HAVE to play.... you just get points for them scoring and assisting

    My signings are doing TERRIBLE

    Doing badly in CL 2nd phase but top of league by few points and still in cup

    Formation restriction makes it tough as well

    Season 1 complete!

    League and Cup won - fell out of CL group at 2nd stage = 450 points

    My 2 buys didn't do great!

    Goals = 6x5 + 12X5 = 90
    Assists = 11x10 + 16X10 = 270
    MOM = 0x25 + 2X25 = 50

    Total after season 1 = 860 points

    Challenge 29 - O Rei and Monstro Sagrado

    Season 2 complete!

    League won with ease - 250 points
    Cup - lost at SF stage

    CL - lost in semi's v Bayern - fuckers scoring in last mins in 1st and 2nd leg - wankers!

    My 2 buys did a bit better this year

    Goals = 19x5 + 11X5 = 150
    Assists = 25x10 + 6X10 = 310
    MOM = 5x25 + 3X25 = 200

    Total after season 1 = 860 points
    Total after season 2 = 910 points

    Total for challenge = 1770


    Really enjoyed this challenge - short and sweet enough

    Benfica have a BIG squad and full of talent - they have a SUPERB squad!

    Defenders were a bit light on quality so I went for a 3-5-2 formation (but did adhere to the 4 attackers as seen in previous screenshot tactic)

    IMO I got unlucky in CL this time around and rested players in cup which meant I got knocked out and then the plan backfired as I got knocked out of CL!

    Think my score will be easily bettered by a lot of people but CL not easy to win

    Cheers Challenge Team - onto the next one!

    Screenies for season 2 below!

    Nice! I was up for a challenge as soon as the update was out and this is just perfect for me! Too bad you didnt allow the use of the EEC hack, as it would emulate the current foreign player restrictions in Portugal But it will add up to the challenge!

    2nd season a load of them seem to get Nationalised anyway so I didn't really have that problem

    Apart from Eliseu and Sami, other quality signings I am pondering are William Carvalho, Nani, Bebé, Varela, Agostinho Cá (he's at Barcelona B but might load as free), Bocar Djumo, Aladje, Bruma, Carlos Mané, Danilo Pereira, Diogo Salomão, Éder, Héldon, Manucho and Zezinho. Some of them are in rival clubs that wont sell them easily or even at all, and others are in bigger leagues and wont consider downgrading...

    I have one doubt: when you say one midfielder and one forward, can it be, for example, Nani and Bebé? They are both simultaneously midfielders/forwards but not purely a striker or a midfielder.

    Hmmmm, seeing that assists will get you more points than goals, maybe I should have bought two wingers (AM/F....)

    Shamefully Nani wont consider coming back to Portugal although ManU agreed to sell him for about 17M. I had to settle for Bebé. Same thing with most of Sporting, Porto and Braga players, they rejected me because of rivalries...

    I made a bet in Agostinho Cá (DMC) on a free. Let's hope I wont regret it...

    Thanks for accepting my ideia, i've done this challenge but a little different, i sold all the non-portuguese players, bought two mozambique players and the rest all portuguese players. First season was awfull, but managed to win two champions at the 3rd and 4th season. Gonna try now with your rules.

    Well done on completing the challenge Red, and cheers to Duke for coming up with the idea, and CF for posting it.

    Best of luck Clay!
