The following have special dispensation due to late entry or holiday, meaning that they will be able to complete challenge 1 alongside #2 but they must both be handed in by 12 noon next Sunday:

Bealesy
Adam C
Spartans5

mikeytwigge
27-07-2008, 15:30

Duno if this counts as points but beat zurich 3 out of 4 and drew once with them.
You said beat them both times? Did you mean both times away? Did you mean twice?

As you can see my season wasnt great but we did have some good times and i enjoyed the challenge. Its a pity Xamax didnt lose the last game of the season or we would have come second. Was very tight.

Sorry for short update been a very busy day.

Weeman27bob vs Mikeytwigge

Get over your heartbreak (or your joy if you're not English :D)

Euro 2008 was strange this summer without the joy of watching England go out in the quarter finals.
Put this right and get England where their expectant fans want them. Load up the english leagues only.

Scoring System:

Win Euro 2008: 100 Points
Final: 80 Points
Semi Finals: 50 Points
The Dreaded 1/4 Finals: 30 Points
Reach Euro 2008: 10 Points

Bonus Points:

One of your players scores more than 5 goals in the tournament: 10 Points
Win every remaining qualifier: 10 Points
Don't concede any goals in the remaining qualifiers: 20 Points
Win the final by more than 3 goals: 30 Points.

another euro2008 one. i had greece last time

FMs going really slow during matchday atm for some reason, but I've got my usual running at the same time (WoW, Toffeeweb, SI forums etc.) so I don't get why it's going so slow :(

rancer890
28-07-2008, 19:48
Actually, it's only the SI Forums. Everything else I usually go on loads a lot quicker...so I have no idea why only the SI Forums have these problems:(

I always run a lot of leagues in the game (except these challenge games, and FM08 A New World Challenge), so I actually finish a season quicker than usual:D

If i ran WoW and FM on my laptop at the same time ( not that i play WoW anymore) it would die!

That said, i do have a friend who's laptop has better specs than mine and yet is terrible. For example his laptop is meant to be a media/gaming laptop and it lags playing music! let me say that again, it lags playing music!

It's a bit daft though, it's the only CSE Championships on the forums so it's free to be the official one :(

Maybe it's me being fussy but I hate it when people put 'official' in thread titles. Perhaps it's something that stems from OTF where a lot of threads have *official* in the title despite not actually being official in the slightest, It's almost a bit of a running joke there.

roberto922

glennuk
29-07-2008, 10:38
This will be fair if he can prove he hasn't holidayed, i also propose that a set of rules are made up, which would help the challenges be adhered to.
Also i will delete my previous posts, and accept your apology. I also hope this doesnt affect my standings in this thread with other members, but i do always stand by my cause.

PS: Cant delete them oh well! Will post in sign ups though.
PSS: Also if anyone doesn;t want me to continue to participate please dont hesitate to tell me, after all everyones opinions do count.

How do you propose we prove he han't holidayed Glenn? Words mean nothing if you can't bac them up, I'll pm him in a minute telling him the news but there is no way that I can think of where we can know that he hasn't holidayed.

glennuk
29-07-2008, 11:01
I think we should eb able to take peoples words for it. But if not the Game Status screen could be posted showing how long it has taken. For example i just for a test went on holiday for the first two months of the season with FC Bayern and it took 8 minutes, now if i palyed the game properly then it would take at least 2 hours (Especially seeing as these were the first two months of a new game)

So if someone finished there season in like 2 hours then its pretty unrealistic. I mean i dont think it will come to that, i expect everyone to be honest about it, and dont think anyone would intentionally cheat cos once again that would go against the whol idea of this challenge.

roberto922
29-07-2008, 11:04
That'll have to do, I'll put a notification up in a bit stating the new rules.

Adam C
29-07-2008, 11:25
Does it matter if you holiday between the games? As i did that with Greece. I played every game, but after each game I would holiday till the next, which is why I finished mine so quickly. Does that matter? Sorry if it does.

Aachen 2 - 3 Pasching/Wallern
Ulm 0 - 8 Aachen
Eintracht Braunschweig 3 - 3 Aachen
Kvsk 1 - 1 Aachen
Aachen 2 - 3 Sint-Truiden

Not the best pre-season, but It could be worse. (highly doubt it though.) Just friendlies though, who really cares? I made no transfers lol, as my wage budget doesn't look good, and I barely have any cash to spend anyhow. But I plan to win the whole league.

glennuk
29-07-2008, 12:30
Good luck adam, im around a third of the way through the season and its been a mixed performance so far.

Dont think so, not much point seeing who is the best manager when all you have to do is press go on holiday and hope you assman does a good job.

He also posted on the 27th which meant he had the 28th still to actually play, but no he went on holiday.

If there aint any rules there isn't any point.

If the same thing happened to you, you wouldnt have allowed it.

It will become pointless if all people do is go on holiday. Then how is it that WEEMAN beat me, as he did nothing except sign three players. Even if he played 10 games i would have been happy with it, but he himself said he holidayed every game.

PS: Also the fact weeman had since the 20th to start the game, and i didnt join until the 22nd. Which means he had more time than me anyway.

If he couldnt do it in time then he should lose the match.

Also i spend liek 8 or 9 hours playing a game only for it to count for nothing because an assman beat me.

Ridiculous as i thought this whole challenge was based on Player Vs Player.

Very poor if Weeman does get the win in our match and even poorer if it continues.


I can see completely where your coming from.
I didn't holiday to try and win.
I holidayed to get my result in on time because i went away unexpectadly.
I posted on the 27th thinking i'd have missed the deadline.
I didn't have a hope of getting my result in on time unless i holidayed as it takes me lots of time to complete a season.
Had there been a rule against holidaying, i would not have done it.

I'm perfectly happy to let you win

england 2 france 3 england go 2 goals up thanks to rooney (2,6) before losing the lead. More bad news as ashley cole is out for 6 days which means he will miss the game against holland leaving lescott as our only left back

mikeytwigge
29-07-2008, 22:15
a 2-1 loss to holland means i am likely to be out of this now. I will post screenshots at a later date although my only hope to stay in this tournament is either weeman not to beat me (extremely unlikely) or adam beats glenuk and weeman and i beat glenuk which would then leave the table as adamc 6 me glenuk and weeman on 3. in which case i do not know how you will decide who goes through as you cant do it on points scored in championships as some challenges have a lot lower points than others. The only solution i could see would be is to put all 3 into a decider single challenge or put all 3 into the next round and have a 4 way match in which only 1 gos through. Also when will the next challenges be posted as i go away on the 3rd until the 10th so i may need some special dispention or to be given the challenge early like you gave someone else. I wouldnt if it turs out that i get a few days before the holliday for this challenge and a few after for the next one as i do not need the full time period

roberto922

I'd like to 'resign' or 'retire' from the challenge, I don't have enough free time to complete my current 'Norwegian Challenge' within the time limit, so it seems pointless to stay in the challenge. Good Luck with the rest of the challenge though :thup:

Get over your heartbreak (or your joy if you're not English :D)

Euro 2008 was strange this summer without the joy of watching England go out in the quarter finals.
Put this right and get England where their expectant fans want them. Load up the english leagues only.

Scoring System:

Win Euro 2008: 100 Points
Final: 80 Points
Semi Finals: 50 Points
The Dreaded 1/4 Finals: 30 Points

One of your players scores more than 5 goals in the tournament: 10 Points
Win every remaining qualifier: 10 Points
Don't concede any goals in the remaining qualifiers: 20 Points
Win the final by more than 3 goals: 30 Points.

Here are my results

Oh,lol. I thought i'd beaten you. I might have some bonus points as well then. I didn't bother to check last time as i thought you'd gone out in the group stages, giving me an easy win

Did England have one loss to start with?
