    Still a lot to do before we actually start games so there may still be hope mate


  4. The Aussies

    Lippo255

    Yeti01

    PatrickLFC

    Feliks

    Kaarto7



    So, here is the team that is going to win the Ashes!

    I would also like to give a special welcome to Jela. He was actually eligible to play for both sides but, of course, decided to join the winning team. Good call Jela, you wont regret it!

    Aussies 1 - Poms 0, & we haven't played a game yet!

    I will now leave it to the English captain, Godfish, to announce his team. When he is ready of course.

    Here stand the 5 that are to mercilessly crush the Aussies. We are entrusted with smashing the Aussies to pieces, and bringing home the urn.

    Also the first team with a full compliment, 1-1 now I believe?

    Up the Barmy Army!

  14. Draft Update

    Myself & Lewie have just decided who will pick first in the draft. Lewie entered the names of all the players who have signed up so far into a randomizer. The winner would be the country who had a player top the list best 2 out of 3. Here are the results!

    Pick 1 - Lewie

    Pick 2 - Yeti

    Pick 3 - Jela!


    The Aussies will pick first! Now the big question, Messi or Ronaldo?

  22. Also, i want to encourage all the participants to play a few practise games against players from the opposing team just to get used to it. It is more then likely that players will need to match one anothers download region in your steam settings to be able to find games, so it can be a bit tricky.

    Yeah it was fun, bit of steam banter in the background!

    I took one thing from that game, dont pick mignolet in the draft

  26. Dang it, I'm not aussie or english but what if my country time difference with Australia is 2 hours

    Tell you what, if we dont get another Aussie in the next 24 hours mate I'll dub you an honorary one

  28. Being Scottish hard to decide who to support English or Aussies looking forward to it though

  29. Was going to say that Australia should pick first in the draft - it's only fair as we have superior players in the real Ashes, and the aim is to reflect that, right?

  46. Ok, so after a quick chat with Godfish, we have decided that the draft will take place at 6am my time, which should be around 9pm London time. Give or take.

    Is everyone familiar enough with the editor to make their teams? Should I do a guide type thing?

    Also, does everyone have an idea of how to find & set up games? I can do guides for both at some stage if needed so let me know, or ask a team mate etc. which ever you all think is best.

    That's almost as impressive as when i was managing Barcelona, going into the final day, overachieving massively, needed a win to seal the La Liga title, got a very respectable 1-1 draw at home to Cordoba, i was so proud of the lads.
