    FM-Base World Cup

    Hey guys, I think this is one of the coolest ideas I've had in a long time. Most of you may know me as the great idea guy that always fizzles out (i.e. Zidane's XI, APL, and Buckingham FC). But, I think I finally found the idea that I can rely on to complete. Unsurprisingly, this is probably the most complicated project yet. But, the great part is that it relies on you, and so I'm motivated to complete this and possibly make this a yearly tradition. My project is called the FM-Base World Cup. I drew inspiration from the FM-Base Ashes and Knockout Cup. Basically, this will hopefully become the premier versus tournament on the forum here. I hope you guys register, and let me know if you have any questions!

    Format:
    This tournament is like any group stage+knockout tournament. There will be one leg in each group and knockout stage fixture, like the real world cup. Depending on interest, this competition will have between 16-32 members (That's right!) ((EDIT: Every edition will have 16 members from now on!). Games will be played in versus mode, and I will announce fixtures (as well as the draw etc. following registration and team selection). The format for the competition will be 4 groups of 4 teams, with each team playing the other teams in their groups once. Then, the top two teams from the groups will be pooled into one big table, and the higher seeded teams play the lower seeded ones in the quarter finals (for example of this competition mode, see the Heineken Cup). Now, to register yourself and make your team, you must fill out the form below. You may be wondering, how will I pick my squad? Well, the answer to that is a draft. The order you are in the draft will be based on a randomly generated order, and the draft will work in a snake system, with the team with the last pick getting the first pick in the next round. You can literally pick whichever player is available, and the way to pick is that I will send you a PM saying that it's your pick and when you respond you get that pick and I post the pick on this thread (there are 10 rounds, round 1 having one player picked, rounds 2-6 having 2 players picked, and rounds 7-10 having 3 players picked. IF a player misses a round i.e. they don't pick in the 12 hours allotted to them, they can reclaim that/those pick(s) at any point, however they will not have the opportunity to choose from the players that were available at the time of their pick but now are not). NOTE: I intend for this game to last until the release of FM16, so please sign up ONLY if you know you will be committed for this time period and will take the game seriously. I anticipate the signup period to take up a few days, then the draft to take another week and a half, and then the tournament to begin (groups will be assigned after the first round of the draft/fixtures will be assigned the day after the draft and the day before group play/trading will occur the day after the draft and the day before group play). This really will be a test to see who the best FM player on this site is. This is why I invite every type of FM-Base member, whether you are an observer, strict story poster, or alternative (BaP, Versus Gamer) story poster as well (you just have to be dedicated). Games will be played on versus mode(injuries in game will carry over one match as will red cards), and you must take a screenshot of the final score and send it to me via PM (however, you must schedule the games on your time) Each round will take up a certain period of time (likely a week per round), and if you have not reported the score by then, then the score is counted as a 0-0 draw (However, if you are on vacation or something, let me know and I will see what I can do. I'm super pumped and I hope you guys are too! Below is the registration form for you and your team . Again, if you have any questions or any suggestions on how to run this from a thread or technical standpoint, please let me know! Let's get going , and may the best FMer win!

    Yea but assuming there are 32 people in this tournament, that would be extremely difficult to coordinate.

    No worries, if you have any questions I'll be here and you can let me know It's just creating a team and adding them to any league that you can play in, and just adding players to the team. If anybody really doesn't know how to do this, I can make the editor file for them, but please don't ask me just because you don't know how. Cheers!

    Are you wondering implementation or the draft process?

    In terms of implementation, it'll be me contacting you via pm when its your turn to pick the player. The process is, you can pick any available player that's not been picked previously, and the draft works in a snake pattern based on your registration order. For example, I will get first pick in the first round, last pick in the second round, first pick in the third round, etc.

  24. Hey guys! Right now we have fourteen members; I think that unless there is a surge of registration, it will be capped between 16-24 people. However, please let all of our friends on FM-Base or anyone who you think would be interested know. This is really to see who is the best FM player on the site, so a wide range of participation (i.e. people that write stories, tactic makers, etc) would be awesome! Cheers!

    Without wishing to seem a pain in the arse, is it not a little unfair you pick first given you were the thread creator, and therefore had the first chance? Would it not be better to wait until everyone is in, and randomly generate it?

    A random generation using a spreadsheet or something like that would seem the fairest way, coz I have only just seen this thread and so if I was to join now I am at a disadvantage.
    If I was to join, would someone be able to right a quick checklist of how to do the editor and how to set up a versus game because I have never done anything like that before. Thanks.

    Thanks for the enthusiasm mate, feel free to invite others as I'd like to have at least 20 members (4 groups of 5).

  35. So, we have 16 members now, I'm allowing four more members to join for this edition. Don't worry, depending on how successful this is, I'd love to do as many of these as I can in FM15 and FM16 as well. However, if nobody registers by noon GMT tomorrow, then we will close registration and begin the draft process. Cheers!

  41. 19 members now, so one more I think and we will call it finished with the draft beginning next Monday. We will use the rest of this week to explain the fine points of the draft and cup process.

  42. If anybody knows someone who will be interested, please let them know ASAP as we only need one more member. Would like to get the draft started next Monday and want to leave time for explanations so if we could have another registration then that would be great. Thanks!

    Perfect lads! We have 20 members, registration is officially closed! It's late where I'm at, but tomorrow I'll give a more detailed explanation of how everything should work from here on out. For now, welcome to the first ever FM-Base World Cup!

    Genuinely so excited to be part of this, especially coz I'm a fan of all your stories

    Thanks mate, although this will hopefully be my first story to actually finish haha.

    Anyways on to an explanation of a few things:

    1) The Draft: This is pretty straightforward, but it is going to take a lot of commitment from you guys. Please check often when it is close to or near your turn so that you receive my PM as soon as possible. Basically, I will be sending out PM's when it is your turn to pick a player. Already taken players will be posted on the first page of this thread, use that for reference. Draft order will be decided randomly and announced on Sunday, with the draft beginning next Monday (when I send out the first PM). It will work in a snake pattern, so the last pick of one round will be the first pick of the next. If you guys don't understand any part of this, please let me know. Also, some advice: Be tactical about who you pick. You should probably have a tactical system in mind, and look for players that fit that system; literally everyone is open game.

    2) Editing - It's not that complicated in regards to editing. You will just create a new editing file using the 15.3 database, create a team, add all of their basic info, (on the first page of editing, that's what you need; don't edit financials, play preferences, staff etc.) , pick any stadium you want, edit the kits, and just add the players that you acquired in the draft. You will then replace them with any team in any playable league of your choice. Brendn has agreed to give a much more in-depth look and tutorial on this closer to the date, so please show appreciation for this and use it if you have trouble with the editor.

    3) Playing Matches - All matches will be played in versus mode. To enter this game mode, you must load up a new save on FM, go to the squad page, and toggle to export it to versus mode. Then just coordinate with your opponent on a time and have at it. IN ORDER TO HAVE A SCORE, both teams must screenshot their scores and PM them to me!! Only then will it be official. I suggest you do this as soon as your game is over, it would just help me a lot. Each gameweek, I've decided, will be a week long. If you have any questions, let me know ASAP.

    3) Future Plans - Pending the success of this competition, I plan to make one every month or so after the previous one finishes (always first twenty sign ups - allows for competition and drive to sign up). This can add history to the competition, create rivalries and favorites etc. The good part about these Cups are that they only should last 1-1.5 months and people can register for each individually so that they don't have to do one tournament if they will be busy; basically, sign up whenever you are free and make your name on the site. This should add history to the event, and I will always recognize past success stories in each intro thread. No, you guys don't have to provide any stories for this, but I'll be doing some round previews before each gameweek (i.e. a dark horse vs. a favorite) just to create banter and hype. Basically, I'm really hoping for this to become a mainstay of FM-Base and an event that shows who the best players on the site are!

    Any questions or concerns? Please let me know! Super pumped for this event to begin Cheers!

  47. You can just right-click a club in regular mode and select "Export Team for Versus Competition" too. So it doesn't have to be classic mode.

    After the Draft is made, I'll be drawing up a tutorial (with pictures and everything) explaining exactly how to go about this process. It's rather simplistic but it can be a bit daunting for people who've never used the editor before.

    Like Mkmillwall said; any questions, fire them at me and I'll help you out

    With a 20 team World cup, you could use the Rugby World Cup format and have 4 groups of 5 teams.
    Top 2 team qualify for the Quarter-Finals.

    A 4-game group stage means everyone gets a good run in this competition but only the best 8 get to contest the final prize



    Edit:

    While I'm at it. I was always a huge fan of the old Heineken Cup quarter final seeding system.

    Each of the qualified teams are ranked into a table using their group stats (Points, Goal difference, goals for, ect)
    and the teams are drawn as such.

    1st vs 8th
    2nd vs 7th
    3rd vs 6th
    4th vs 5th

    It means that even while the groups are wide open, people can have fun thinking about who they might get if results go their way. Or what kind of a result they need to avoid certain players. For the fans, this system was bloody amazing and very exciting.

    While I like the randomness of unseeded draws used in football. There's a certain magic to the old Heineken cup seeding system

    Quite like this idea, would be a shame to go through a week (plus) of drafting just to lose one game & be out....
