X FACTOR SIGN UP - IDEAS
People to sign up by creating a player - am looking at 20 if possible. The player will start with all attributes set to 10 but the sign-up will require the CSE member to 'spend' 50 attribute points on improving whichever attributes they want to as well as identifying positions and information for the sign up player. I will be limiting to 2 GK, 8 DF, 8 MF and 4 AT.
After that, it will be time for the auditions. The twenty CSE members will have the opportunity to 'earn' a top ranking and the right to choose which manager they will play under - these managers will be representing the X-Factor judges - and some will be better than others obviously. I'm thinking that answering a question about one of the managers will be a good way to generate interest at the early stage. The first person to answer a question will get first choice at the managers, the second person will get second choice etc ...
After the auditions, the players will be sent to boot camp. This will be in two pre-season matches on FM - ten players will be placed at one team and the other ten at another team and they will play a two-leg match with each team at home once each. The twenty players average ratings from both games will be added together and the players will be ranked from one to twenty. The top player will receive another 20 attribute points to boost their player, the second player will receive another 19 attribute points etc ...
After boot camp, it will be time for the main show. The players will be placed with their manager in four groups of five at a random Premiership clubs. I will play a full season and rank the players by their average rating in all competitive matches. The bottom four will be 'in danger' of being eliminated from the competition with two to go. Am unsure whether to eliminate the lowest ranked player or run a voting system amongst the readers of the sign up.
Once the bottom two have been eliminated, the remaining players will receive extra attribute points based on their final positions, the achievements of their teams and managers etc ... The highest average rating player will get to decide which Premiership club their player plays for next season - the manager and other players that were with that player follow. Of the remaining players, the highest ranked one will decide on their players club and the manager and other players will follow etc ... Then the season will be played again and we play the next show.
Once we are down to six, I will make it one player to leave per season.
Once we are down to three, it will be all about being the player with the highest rating. This player will be crowned champion.
These are ideas and are subject to change still. Would love any suggestions that you guys may have.
