    Challenge 33 - The Cherries On The Top

    Challenge 33
    The Cherries On The Top






    Credit to Dermotron for the idea and the testing.

    This challenge is based upon the idea of spreading the wealth that teams in the Premier Division have amongst the lower division teams of the English system. You will take control of newly promoted Bournemouth and attempt to transform them in to a title-challenging side with only players recruited from the lower divisions in England. You have six seasons to do your best.

    Rules:

    - Six seasons
    - April 2016 data update
    - Non wib-wob tactics only
    - The challenge is over if you get relegated
    - Sell all current players by end of season 1
    - Only buy players from 1st Division, 2nd Division, 3rd Division, Conference and non-league
    - No signing of players on loan from EPL or abroad
    - No free players
    - No bosmans
    - No unprotected contracts

    Screenshots:

    - Tactic
    - Transfers In
    - Screenshots of the Squads who’s team you purchase the player from (to check the division)
    - Competitions won and end of season position in the league

    NOTE: Before season two please provide a screenshot of your whole squad or transfers out.

    Points:

    NOTE: You do not score any points for your first season.

    - Premier League (Winner) = 1000 points
    - Premier League (Runners Up) = 900 points
    - Premier League (3rd Place) = 800 points
    - Premier League (4th Place) = 700 points
    - Premier League (5th Place) = 600 points
    - Premier League (6th Place) = 500 points
    - Premier League (7th Place) = 400 points
    - Premier League (8th Place) = 300 points
    - Premier League (9th Place) = 200 points
    - Premier League (10th Place) = 100 points
    - Premier League (11th Place or lower) = 0 points

    I've never not started a challenge straight away but this may have to wait a while as enjoying new game on latest update

    Looks a toughie though and properly looking forward to it!

    I created the save without the Tapani patch - I thought that is how you had done the previous save games?

    Hmmmm - I already had Tapani patch installed to my ongoing game and 7 subs there?

    Although saying that I'm sure Dermo may have passed me a link with new update and Tapani patch with new colours and modern finances already installed (you were talking me through it from your thread)

    But somehow gone from 7 subs to 5

    I should have just created the challenge myself and prob would have been fine

    Doesn't matter anyway - you can only use 3 subs! Just always nice to have the options

    Update after 4 games. 2 wins and 2 draws so a great start but my team is shite and staying up is the aim

    Really good challenge this as hard to get a good team given the club rep/stadium size etc

    Probably got about 10-11 'new' players already signed so it's more getting players I really want now than fattening the squad

    Before the first competitive fixture of the second season.

    I'm on this. Getting halfdecent players in first season is pretty hard. They tend to be overpriced or simply not good enough. I have accumulated a crapload of screenshots of clubs in lower divisions for my 9 signings so far. Hoping to get to 6th place first season. Can't get this unstable side to win consistently. Star players so far; Moussa Dembele and Daniel Ayala. Lots of so-so signings include Ben Mee, Sam Winnall, Milan Lalkovic and such. Threading water now, until some decent side goes down and we snap up all their good uns.

    Might be better to screenshot the division that you're buying from if you're buying multiple players from each division. I'd imagine going forward after the first season that you wouldn't need as many screenshots.

    thought I'd stick to the rules this time , expecting to buy 5/6 players per future season, so I'll be fine.

    Also I think scoring points in the first season should be -on-. It's even harder during transitional times.

    Sold a lot of the reserves already.. The first team and the 2 players with big injuries will be a big problem.

    One signing in from QPR already, Prem quality too with another on the way from same club

    For the first season you may as well do what Redders is planning to do and post a screenshot of your transfers in. It will be obvious if you've signed anyone outside of the Premiership. From season two onwards you'll have to screenshot the divisions or club squads that you buy from.

    yeah, I had some time invested as well. But hey, shit happens. Nothing Jesus could do, he did his bit.

    Let's just restart the damn thing. At least we know who's good and who sucks.

    Why do people need a link anyway? If anything it takes longer to download the link then just making the game yourself.
