    Default Mack4life's Chairman Game

    Ok, this is going to be my first effort at running a Chairman game. I have taken part in a few over the years and for some reason had never bothered to try and run my own. Well I've got bags of free time at the moment so I thought I would give it a go. The rules are going to be broadly similar to those of the other chairman games on this forum but with a few tweaks.

    *The rules are based on those by ollie laaaaaaaad but with some changes*

    This game WILL run for as long as I have people willing to participate. It will not end early.

    Rules

    General

    1) Only sign up for this if you will be able to commit to it. Don't sign up if you can only get on the forums once a week or if you're going to drop out before the end of the first season.

    2) You can chance your manager at any time and as many times as you want, but obviously changing manager often will be very expensive.

    3) When a manager is fired the remainder of their contract will be pain in full.

    4) Only realistic managerial appointments can be made, so no you can't hire Sir Alex Ferguson if you're managing Wigan.

    5) If you want a manager from a team in the league then you will have to sort out compensation with the chairman of their current club. If you sign a manager from an AI team then the compensation value paid will be the remainder of their contract + 25%.

    6) You may set your transfer & wage budgets to whatever you like, but just remember, set them too high and your club will run the risk of bankruptcy. Also, your transfers may not take you over your wage budget. If your manager chooses to do so there is nothing you can do, but you may not offer more money than you have set out in your budget.

    7) Your facilities can be upgraded if you want to. The cost will be:
    £2,500,000 for a minor improvement to your youth system.
    £3,000,000 for a minor improvement to your traning facilities.
    After the first season I will allow chairmen to improve their stadiums if they desire, however the details of that will be sorted out later.

    Transfers

    8) Limits on transfer numbers are as follows:
    Transfers between clubs in the league - Unlimited
    Loans between clubs in the league - Unlimited
    Transfers from clubs in your nation, below your league - 4 per season
    Transfers from foreign clubs - Maximum of 2 in the Summer, maximum of 1 in January, maximum of 3 in a season
    Loans from foreign clubs - 2 per season
    Free signings - 3 per season
    Transfers of youth players from foreign clubs - Maximum of 2 in the Summer, maximum of 1 in January, maximum of 3 in a season
    *A youth player is classified as a player aged 17 or under and valued at below £2,500,000*

    9)Transfer values are as follows:
    Transfers between clubs in the league - Agreed between Chairmen
    Transfers from clubs in your nation, below your league - Double the players current value
    Transfers from foreign clubs - 2.5 times the players current value
    Transfers of youth players from foreign clubs - Double the players current value IF they have not represented their nation and have played less than 10 senior games. Four times the players current value if they have represented their nation or have played more than 10 senior games.
    *Represented their nation counts as Under 21s or Senior sides*
    *If a player has a minimum fee release clause in their contract which is less than the calculated value then they can be purchased for the value of the clause*

    10) At the start of each transfer window I will post up a list of the top players available on a free transfer. If a chairman wants to sign a player they will PM me their contract offer. I will then announce the player on this thread and every chairman will have the opportunity to PM me their own contract offer. The player will sign for club who makes him the best offer. Posting up your offer in the thread rather than in a PM will result in the player rejecting it.
    *In the first season you can view the players in your own game, however after the first season if you want to see a players attributes then just ask and I can send you a screenshot, as obviously after the first season some players will have started to decline*

    11) If you wish to sign a player from another club in the league then you need to contact the chairman of that club, agree the details of the transfer, then let me know about it, and once I have confirmed it is all OK then you can announce it in the thread.

    12) Your control over the sale of players is more restricted than with signing players. Players that you want to get rid of can be offered to other clubs in the league by posting up an announcement of your desire to get rid of the player or by contacting chairmen directly. You can also choose to release players on a free transfer however the remainder of their contract will come out of your transfer budget, or you can transfer list a player. To release or transfer list a player you need to contact me and I can sort it out for you.

    Wages

    13) The wages that players will be signed on will vary depending on the player you're signing and the club that you're at.
    Predicted League Position of 1st to 6th:
    Player aged 18 of less - 2 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 2.25 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 2.5 times current wage
    Players aged 33 or over - 2 times current wage
    Players from own league - 1.5 times current wage
    Predicted League Position of 7th to 14th
    Players aged 18 or less - 1.75 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 2 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 2.25 times current wage
    Players aged 33 or over - 1.75 times current wage
    Players from own league - 1.25 times current wage
    Predicted League Position of 15th to 20th
    Players aged 18 or less - 1.25 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 1.5 times current wage
    Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 2 times current wage
    Players aged 33 or over - 1.25 times current wage
    Players from own league - Same as current wage
    *I know that this seems a bit complicated but it is my attempt to make things a bit more realistic and to balance the game out a bit, so big clubs have to pay higher wages than smaller clubs would, and hopefully if this game runs for a number of seasons it could see the smaller teams being able to make indents into the top of the table*

    Playing

    14) Everything must be confirmed by PM before being posted on this thread. So for example, you don't announce a transfer until I have confirmed by PM that it has gone through, you don't announce a manager sacking till I know about it and have told you it is OK, and so on. You get the idea!

    15) If you wish to take part in this game then PM me the team you want to take over along with your wage & transfer budgets. Then once I have replied to confirm that the team is available you will need to post up a press release on this thread announcing the new chairman.

    Important

    This is a save game which has the exact database I'm using at the start of the game.
    You can use this to see which players are available, use it to scout, and so you can see the current values & wages of every player.
    Just download it, put it in your save games folder, and load it up in game.

    *Loans*

    I have had a couple of people ask questions about how to make a loan of a player from abroad. I will handle it by adding the player to your squad for the duration of the loan as there isn't a way to create loans in FMRTE. You will always have to pay 100% of their wages.
    As for who you can loan, if it is realistic it will be allowed. So any player who is listed for loan, fine, most players who are listed as backup, fine, Lionel Messi, not OK!

    *Youth Players*

    If a youngster is available for a direct contract approach in the game then the cost to sign them will be the compensation that the club requires in the game. E.g. If you approach to sign Bernard Mensah from Watford, the cost of signing him will be £1.21m, as this is the compensation that Watford ask for in game.
