Seeing as how the FM sub-forum above is out-dated and posts aren't looked at in there I propose we start one here. With Football Manager 08 or wait for Football Manager 09 is what I wanna know? Anyone interested?

EDIT:

Information for first FM Challenge:

League:- Indian National Football League

Screenshots/Network: Screenshots are being used, screenshots of your profile, league table, fixtures and results, game setup page, manager overview and also the game status which can be found in the options menu to be posted before the deadline.

Team: Use whichever team takes your fancy, the teams are fairly even except one or two are really p*ss poor.

Database: Use a large database if your computer can take it, with no players loaded from other nations!. Also enable real players and no attribute masking.

Points:

League win: 350 points

Runner-up: 300 points

Durand Cup : 150 points

Indian Federation Cup: 150 points

Confederations Cup Winner: 350 points

CC Runner-up: 200 points

CC Cup Semi - Finalist: 50 points

CC Cup Q - Finalist: 25 points

Deadlines:

The game will start on Tuesday 15th, 12 noon GMT. Or 8:00PM AEST, Wednesday 16th for the Aussie lads playing. Game finishes Saturday August 16, 12 noon GMT or 8:00PM AEST, Sunday Augst 17 for Aussies. If your not in either time zones tell me and i'll add your deadline here if you like.

IF YOU MISS THE DEADLINE OR DON'T POST ALL OF THE ABOVE NECESSARY SCREENSHOTS OR DON'T HAVE A VALID REASON AND CAN'T PROVIDE THEM QUITE SOON AFTER YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. SAME GOES FOR CHEATING.

i'm interested like.

When does 09 come out and are these games not really slow. I used to do them on FM 07 and it used to take forever when you had to wait for people.

Boris
11-07-2008, 04:04 PM
We will have deadlines though. It will work. 09 is out in October, f*ck it, lets do one as soon as we get 5-10+ people :)

Geordie JJ
11-07-2008, 04:08 PM
I sort of lost my FM08 disk. lol. Been thinking of getting it again but i may as well just wait. I will be up for a league when the new one is out though.

Boris
11-07-2008, 04:11 PM

Boris
11-07-2008, 04:25 PM
Starts as soon as we get enough people :)

I typed in "Football Manager 2008 torrent" and scoured the sites until I found one, different links are better for different people. Maybe we should discuss this off forum aye :lol:

Boris

I might be interested, my FM runs very slow though.

Boris
11-07-2008, 05:10 PM
Mine did too until my stupid brother formatted my computer, I reinstalled it and its quickest program I have :lol:

G_Man
11-07-2008, 07:11 PM

Geordie JJ
11-07-2008, 09:38 PM
I'm not too bothered which one we do.

My FM will not be getting here till early next week. It cost under 9 on the net :P ... from Amazon

Kylus
12-07-2008, 07:43 AM
Since I've been playing FML, haven't played 08 much, i'll probably still get 09 because I hear there are supposed to be major changes to the game, all the better.

Boris
12-07-2008, 07:55 AM
FM Live was quite crap. I gave up after the opening week or so, but I was playing Beta...

Kylus
12-07-2008, 08:20 AM
Yeah I'm on beta, I've been on it for a couple of weeks.

I'll probably revert to 09 once it's out.

Anymore details on how this thing will work though, I'm interested in getting involved.

Boris
12-07-2008, 08:26 AM
Still planning, I want numbers before I put everything out on the table. And it depends which league the majority of people want too.

Is this a network game or a challenge where we post screenies?

I'd be up for it if it was screenies. I'm in the middle of taking Man City to heights they've never seen before atm :P

Boris
13-07-2008, 06:48 AM
Screenies.


Network games are sh*t.

We got anymore people interested? We'll start the day after Jack has his FM installed and working on his computer.

Geordie JJ
13-07-2008, 08:35 PM

After Geordie gets his FM disc the game will start. We will be using the Indian National Football League. This isn't a network game, its screenshots.

Basically starting the day after Geordie gets his game ready and working (hopefully sometime this or next week) each of us will take control of an Indian team and have a month to complete a single season.

You will gain points for your league finish, how well you do in each of the 2 national cup competitions, qualify for Confederations Cup, how well you do in that competition etc.

League win: 350 points

Runner-up: 300 points

Durand Cup : 150 points

Indian Federation Cup: 150 points

Confederations Cup Winner: 350 points

CC Runner-up: 200 points

CC Cup Semi - Finalist: 50 points

CC Cup Q - Finalist: 25 points


The way Indian League works is unless you win the league; Confederations Cup doesn't apply to you.

The Super Cup is a off-season, one off match, cup competition that is played between the season befores Indian Super Cup Winners and the previous league winners so unless you choose those clubs you won't get in so there is no points for that competition. It is played during May, after the clubs end of season break so finish your game on June 1st if you did not win the league.

Confederations Cup, continental competition starts after the season finishes and continues right through most of the next season. It doesn't bother me if you play the second season games, you won't get points for winning, losing or drawing them, if your in the CC Cup thats all I really care about. The Confederation Cup finishes around November if you reach the Final.

The game will start on Tuesday 15th, 12 noon GMT. Or 8:00PM AEST, Wednesday 16th for the Aussie lads playing. Game finishes Saturday August 16, 12 noon GMT or 8:00PM AEST, Sunday Augst 17 for Aussies. If your not in either time zones tell me and i'll add your deadline here if you like.

Any questions, feel free to ask in this thread. Important details added to original post.

Boris
14-07-2008, 01:00 PM
Why not Floodster? We need someone to hold up the rest of the league! ,;)

14-07-2008, 01:01 PM

Boris

I'm quite good actually. I've won a few of these things using obscure leagues.

Boris
14-07-2008, 02:02 PM

Donkey08
14-07-2008, 02:56 PM

Boris
14-07-2008, 02:59 PM

14-07-2008, 09:19 PM
My FM isn't working at the minute, but put me in anyway If i keep fiddling with the computer I may be able to get it up and running. It sounds interesting.

15-07-2008, 01:35 AM
Count me in.

Boris
15-07-2008, 01:53 AM
Ok...

Neil unfortunate you can't be in but if you can still play if you like, anyone can just so long as they get their screen shots in.

Becks you can start your league the day before the deadline for all I care :lol: I just don't want people starting before it.

Welcome paddy :)

Kylus
15-07-2008, 02:17 PM
Yeah I'm up for this.

Will this be the thread we use to keep updated with each other and so I can post how I'm winning so much?

Boris
15-07-2008, 02:40 PM
Yes. Everything stays in this thread.

If anyone hasn't read the terms of participation in the orignal post please do so now :)

Boris
16-07-2008, 11:39 AM
As on an hour and a half ago you could have started. Good luck!!. People can still enter and participate, just everything must be submitted before the deadline and post here that you are participating

Geordie JJ
16-07-2008, 11:40 AM
OK

Boris
16-07-2008, 11:48 AM
haha. I figured different coloured writing it would stand out if people scroll through :lol:

G_Man
16-07-2008, 01:16 PM
i will start tonite after work. Im gonna bet people are gonna find who the champions were the season before and be them.

Boris
16-07-2008, 01:24 PM
Thats Dempo. They're a top team but it doesn't matter who you pick, they don't have the best players on this game. I'm already 2 months in.

G_Man
16-07-2008, 01:26 PM
If you want extra points in this tourney your gonna have to be them

Geordie JJ
16-07-2008, 01:29 PM
I'm gonna be Dempo. More chance of points. I dont think the gap will be that big though G_Man.

G_Man
16-07-2008, 01:34 PM
Are you allowed to quit and start again? Are you allowed to save every week in order to win every week ,;)

I know theres rules for what we win and how long we got but thats about it boris lad

Boris
16-07-2008, 01:42 PM
Why do you want to quit and start again? Its your time your wasting. .Save once a month, thats the normal FM setting and even if your Dempo or Mohun Bagan and start off in CC Cup you don't get points for it since you didn't play the full competition. They both start from Quarter Finals. Thats why I said play the Confederatiosn Cup a bit into the second season if you get that far.

Also use your real name for manager name so we can tell its legit. Also be helpful if you posted your real name here.

Boris
16-07-2008, 02:37 PM
My real name is Reagan Gerrard, also my managers name on the game :)

Becks THFC
16-07-2008, 06:57 PM
I'm Dempo. The brazillian forward is going to be a legend. I can never remember his name though :x

Boris
17-07-2008, 12:32 PM
Beto. He was good for 3 games on mine. Crocked now. Pardal and some Indian attacking midfield are competiting for Top Goalscorer :lol:.

By the way I have already won the Federation Cup, Durand Cup Final about to be played and i'm 6 points clear in the league :) GO EAST BENGAL!
