    A few people talking about having a Football Manager 12 challenge.

    Anyone interested? Start this Sunday?

    The Challenge.

    Everyone goes Hull City and bescially see who can do the best, see how it's goes for the first season and take it from there? Say first person into the top 10 of the PL wins? What do you win CS FM12 king bragging rights :smile:

    ideas feel free to chip in, team can be changed to suit everyone(Birdie :tonguewink:)

    Rules:-
    Everyone picks Hull City.
    No cheating your only cheating yourself :tongueout:
    No editing before hand.
    As a Manager at the start we all pick semi-pro footballer as past experience.
    You get sacked you lose
    You can't take a managerial role at any other team

    Why Hull City? Is it done by real time or FM12 time to who wins?

    Suppose people can start when ever we agree on the team and people involved really just I cant play it until Sunday after today.lol.

    I just randomly picked Hull can be changed, any suggestions?

    As for the time it will have to done in FM time. E.g say Adam reaches 9th in the PL by the end of the 2014 season but I haven't yet finished the 2014 season I could potentially finish above him. If you get me.

    What if you get the sack can you get a job with another club and continue?

    Done by FM12 time I'd imagine. So someone who gets Hull in to top 10 in, say, their second season but takes a week to do it, will beat someone who gets them in to top 10 in their 5th season but only takes a day to do it.

    I have edited that in.

    Get sacked your out the game.

    If a job offer comes in for a better team with a higher league position it will be classed as cheating if you take it.

    Stay with the team we pick until someone wins and take it from there see if people want to carry on and turn it into a first into Europe etc.

    As I say only the testing the water so rules can be changed as can teams etc until we all agree.

    We could maybe report back to the thread after certain interval of games, after every 10 for example. Or maybe say by a certain date in real time to have played a certain amount of games to make sure people dont fall behind?...for example by the end of March play X amount of games? Just ideas :smile:

    Ill do it. Dunno if I'll start on Sunday but either way if we all post seasonal reports it'll be nice to see how people progress.


    One thing to add though: check the latest version of the database when you start a new game and make sure we all play off the same version :wink:

    I might try and start fri night/Saturday if I'm free I can usually blast a season in a weekend

    That is a very good point about checking database version - didn't even think about that!

    I'm happy with Hull or Bristol City, any of those "secure" clubs.

    Good idea Iain I'm not running any updates yet.

    Also everyone will have to select the same available leagues to make scouting players fairer, also take attribute masking off guessing everyone does this anyway.

    Leagues to pick the main ones England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal or is that too many for some people?

    Most of the people taking part seem to be online so should we vote for the team.

    Hull City is my pick.

    Attribute masking off ftw.lol.

    Ok we will go with the PL, Chapionship and below for those who can cope, Spain and Italy. They should do.

    Steam has decided to upgrade my game which takes 90mins FFS. At least I will be running the lateset database though.

    Right then sorted Hull City it is.

    I have attribute masking on on my game, makes it a bit more interesting having to scout players etc, but each to their own I suppose!

    Surely having the option to pick different league will affect the course of the game? I'd play it as everyone has the same leagues, attribute masking etc etc so that it really comes down to good scouting and managerial tactics.

    Yeah it does exactly that so you have to scout players.. Makes it more realistic tbh and more of a joy when your scout finds a gem

    Attribute masking is pure s**t.

    Especially in major leagues because you can watch any team you like and see how good they are. As a manager in the industry you can get footage of any game you like Ahhh I vote turn it off

    The clear out begins. Got rid of all backroom staff that were there and searched for new staff based on attributes.

    Found a few good ones so far...
