FM Fantasy Football Game - Join Now.

  1. FM Fantasy Football Game - Join Now.

    I thought I would give a Fantasy Football Game a go, I know there are a fair few on FM-Base but I really enjoyed the first one that Will1981 did, and have missed it ever since, so with his permission I have set one up myself very similar to his.


    The Concept.

    Take charge one of the 92 English League clubs and your job will be to negotiate, trade and manage your way from the lower leagues up to the golden Premier League or establish yourself as the constant favourite.


    How it will work.

    You will be given a budget to make improvements to your squad, (see what to spend your budget on to see how). Once the trading window has closed I will then holiday through one season and the award prize money based a number of things (see prize money). Then I will edit the database, promoting and relegated the necessary teams, and then repeat with the new budgets. I will just be simulating the first season over and over (with the applicable database edits), so no player will age.


    What you can spend your budget on.

    You can spend your budget on any of the following ways:
    1 – Buy players from other managers involved in the game.
    2 – Bidding on the players that I put up for auction each week.
    3 – Boost the Current Ability of your current players and manager. Can only boost each player a max of +10 for each season and a total of +100 for the team each season.


    How to increase your budget.

    There are three ways of increasing your budget:
    1 – Sell your players to other managers in the game.
    2 – You will be awarded prize money dependant on your final league standing and your cup progress
    3 – You will be awarded prize money if you have players that finish in the top ten for goals scored, assists, average rating for each competition.


    Competition that are included will be.

    All 4 of the top leagues, FA Cup, League Cup & JPT


    Auction:

    Each week I will auction the best players and managers from each of the non playing countries, so one week Scotland, Spain, Italy etc. I will post up a closing date for each auction. It will be a silent auction, so everyone PM your bids for the players you want and then whoever bids the highest gets the player, simple.


    Negotiation.

    Please negotiate with the relevant managers via PM/VM with them to stop this thread getting clogged up with loads of posts, and then once a deal has been dealt if it can get posted on the thread in RED.


    Player Boosts.

    Players can be boosting up to a max current ability of 200, each 1 ability boost point will cost £2 million, again can you please post these on the thread in RED so that they are easy to see when going through.


    Going over budget.

    If you fail to keep on top of your budget will result in a 1 point deduction per £1million over budget (rounded UP to the next million).


    Loaned Players.

    All loaned players will belong to the team that they are loaned in accordance with the 11.3 patch.

    All interested players please post on this thread the first and second team that you would like to be with your post count. If two players want the same team, then that team will go to player with the highest number of posts the player missing out will then go to their second team.

    I will start the first auction as soon as I get a decent amount of players. (Not expecting to fill ALL the teams, but 50+ would be good).

    If there's anything else that I have missed please feel free to PM me

  14. Barnet Please mate

  15. Man united please
    second choice Spurs
    over 800 posts

  16. Before I join, I just have a few questions;

    Will their be auctions for players outside of England as in Wills?

    Is only C.A that you can improve? I think this is the most vital part of auction games.
    I'm kind of growing bored of the other auction game, as everyone can improve players' Potential ability and therefore after a couple seasons trading between teams stops and the longevity of the game goes out of it. I have a good idea about how you could approach this, maybe you could have a +10 ability limit for every player per season? Then, wonderkids can only improve in a realistic way. Then when you reach the players potential ability in the database you can't improve the player anymore.

  17. Exeter city please 423 posts...

  37. Ive updated the OP. I will be putting up the prize money later this evening. I will be starting the first season as soon as I get enough people, so in a couple days I will put up the first auction!

    Also can people please look back at Clince121188's post Number 16 and let me know what people think about how to improve this Fantasy Game, I want it to last a lot longer than they tend to last, and still be fun. Any other ideas are more than welcome.

    i think this is a good idea to have a limit on the amount of upgrading of players otherwise after a few seasons most teams will be fully upgraded. maybe either limit to +100 per team/season or max+10 for each player/season. also if its the same as will's then surely wonderkids wont improve as database is just updated and restarts sim in 2010/11 season each time...

    I think with the wonderkid situation is that they can improve up to a much higher PA where as the players with very little difference between CA and PA wont improve much if anything.

    Im thinking of adding a +10 CA per player per season to a max of a total of +100 per season across the whole team per season.

    Another thought is to only be able to improve CA up to PA at a cost of £1 million per point, but you can increase PA by a much higher cost at say £3 million per point, but I want to hear peoples views on it before I go ahead and make it official.

    Let me know what you think people!!!

  47. West bromwich albion 76 posts .

  48. Need a few more players and then I'll get the first auction up. Try and get people you know to join this

  49. I'll go Ipswich please.

    Edit: My post count is 395.

    And just a few questions,
    You say you can buy boosts to CA, but will it naturally increase like in a normal game anyway?
    So the figures by the team names in the OP are the starting budgets to spend?
    And finally, do you have to only bid for realistic players and do wages mean anything?

    Thanks.
