    Default What leagues would you like to see added in the future

    Now i know that Fm09 does not exist, but assusing that it will which leagues or division would you like them to include in the game.

    My List as Follows

    Wales Second Division
    Argentina Third Division
    Latvia
    Faroe Islands or San Marino
    Ghana
    Cameroon
    Canada
    Nigeria

    Perhaps the English Lower levels but they could be view only as well as the highland League

    Welsh second and some North African ones... some more African would definately be good. Saudi Arabia's a good call, it'd be good to round out the world picture, although understandably its not easy getting researchers.

    Yes because Utah Mudskippers are a more worldwide will known club than say Bradford...or Brentford....seriously though....all joking aside...and that was meant as a joke, not a putdown, i would like to see:
    The Unibond etc leagues - i.e the step below the Blue Square.
    The Estonian leagues!
    Some more African leagues...Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria?
    Some more Central American leagues, Jamaica, Costa Rica?

    I really like the sound of that.

    I'm not much of a managing abroad person, so that would be perfect. I wouldn't mind if there would be no research done aswell, just to be able to see how the league is shaping up would be nice, even if it was all grey playing.

    All of them please!

    I don't even care if Botswana isn't fully researched and all we have are stadia and club names (everything else random), i just want to be able to load up all of Asia and Africa and have a go!

    As an aside, back when i used to play the FIFA Manager series (when it was called TCM), we were able to create leagues and cups in the editor (we had to use one of several league templates, but the cups were fully customisable if you knew how to write the script).

    Maybe one day FM will give us the option of making some crude leagues without having to trick the game and sacrifice an existing league.

    Alright, sorry, triple post.

    TCM also had every country's data in a separate data file within the database folder, so it was much easier to import downloaded leagues without ruining your custom database. FM doesn't have this structure, so i suppose it would be difficult until they change their database structure (which would be for the better, by the way!).

    Just think, one day our children will be playing a FM game with every nation playable, entire league structures all the way down to the amateurs in every nation, and their computers will be so fast that there isn't even an option to choose which leagues to load...they are all loaded automatically.

    Those ********!

    Does the game REALLY need anymore leagues?
    I would have thought concentrating on getting more detail into the game and making it more realistic would be more productive, then having a new league in Morroco.

    Is it only me that feels this?

    The Venezuelan League is pretty decent, and it's better than the likes of Wales, N. Ireland and Singapore.

    I am sure you wouldn't think this way if your favorite league wasn't in the game already.

    PMLF - Should the game cater for individuals or the masses?

    My favourite league would be the Wessex League at non league level, but I would rather see more time spent on other aspects of the game.

    What about someone in Morocco who bought FM but can't manage his own local team?

    The Hungarian league was not always present in CM/FM (don't remember the exact year when it was added), and I was not happy about it when I was not able to manage Hungarian teams.

    Even though I probably would never manage teams from all nations, but still sometimes I like to load all nations and have a career game where I spend 1-2 years then I go on to another team in another country.

    Would love to see the number of African leagues expanded beyond just S.Africa. I often play games with a "regional" setting ie UK, Scandinavian or Southern Europe. I've never been tempted to start a game in S.Africa because thats the only playable league in the game.

    Highland League would be cool as well!

    I agree it would cost too much to research all teams from all nations and I don't think there will ever be an FM version where all leagues would be available.

    This is why:

    - adding the possibility to add leagues with the editor
    - adding the possibility to manage clubs from other nations, even with grey players

    could offer some workaround for those who can't find their favourite league in the game.

    Peter Cseke - fair point, but by having a league in Morocco, will the time and effort in preparing this league, researching this league, establishing the leagues rules be time well spent, compared to improving the game overall, instead of a poor mans version of a data update each year!

    The thread question is:

    What leagues would you like to see added on to FM09
    I would like to see those leagues added, regardless of what the "masses" want.

    Ok PMLF - I dont want to see NO new leagues, sorry but I thought it pointless to start a new thread about why we shouldnt have any new leagues.

    We can all want, but some may never get...

    The scottish Juniour leagues woudl be good. Yes I know no promotion to the SFL but still would be a good challenge as now the 3 superleague winners and cup winners in the juniour get into the Scottish cup. Lucky Girvan get in it every year as they are full SFA members. Would eb good though and in fairness the top juniour teams are a match for 3rd div teams at least.

    I would say though for other countries:
    Egypt
    Tunisia
    Morroco
    Cyprus
    Nigeria

    England has more than its fair share of teams unfortunatly leaves the games too unbalanced at times with their being so many english players in the db. Let other nations catch up first then fair enough look at England again though try and keep the game balanced.

    ]Expecting new pc around 2009 and looking forward to FM 2010
    Posts

    Default

    Not that my current PC can cope with it but one can always dream.

    I would love to have:
    3rd tier Argentia
    2nd tier Wales
    Proper representation of football on State level in Brazil (Including different levels at State level and proper qualifications for the Série C)
    3rd tier Greece
    3rd tier Czech Republic
    Fully playable CFA in France

    And if I may drift away for another dream:
    First two tiers Paraguay
    First tier Marocco
    First tier Egypt
    3rd tier China
    3rd tier Romania
    3rd tier Croatia
    3rd tier Finland
    3rd tier Iceland
    First tier Bolivia

    Yeah, I know, pretty unrealistic to expect something like that to be added to FM in the near Future. But as I said, one can always dream and with a bit of luck by the time I buy my new PC SI have added a few of the listed ones here.

    It would take perhaps 20-30 hours to (at least crudely) develop a new league in the game.

    Assuming 8 hour workdays, 16 workdays per month (that's about 4 days per week), there are 576 hours of labour available for each SI employee (assuming each employee gets three months of not working on the game due to vacation, databases locked for disc production, etc).

    I think at least a couple new leagues each year isn't too much to ask. Once the work is done, it'll be there forever since the structure of the game doesn't change drastically from year to year.

    And i'm sure SI gets this all the time with nothing to show for it, but i don't have to return to work until September 2008, so i spend all day either at the gym or playing FM. Tell me which programming language you need it in, and i'll make the damn leagues

    Have all the South American leagues. That way, you can play a full Copa Libertadores and others. There are only ten nations and FM08 already has 6, so adding 4 more to make it real would be good.

    Aside from that, the NCAA would be great.

    Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Malta, Cyprus, Venezuela, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and of course Japan if another brand wouldn't have the exclusive license for J-league

    I think there are already enough English leagues in the game so it would be nicer to see leagues from new countries instead..

    I think you've hit the nail on the head there mate. Those leagues would definately give a better balance to the FM 'World', where we're certainly lacking in Africa and the strong Asian leagues.

    I think Europe is more than well represented with it's various leagues across the continent and the leagues you mention are exactly what I think should be added.

    ..and the leagues you mention are exactly what I think should be added
    Thank you Colorado (maybe SI will call me now to work for their marketing side )
    But I think there should be also the 2nd division for the leagues that have only a division in the game. You only can choose a couple of team anf if you get relegated you just have to resign.. and if you are sacked you don't have a great change to get another team (See Australia or India)

    I think we need the ability to makes leagues in the editor for certain countries i may be wrong but if teams from un playable leagues qualify for the Champions League qualifiers then why can't there be a create function in the editor to make league for these countries?

    I would like to see more African league and more South American, Japan aswell as more lower league teams in Spain and Italy.

    I really like the sound of that.

    I'm not much of a managing abroad person, so that would be perfect. I wouldn't mind if there would be no research done aswell, just to be able to see how the league is shaping up would be nice, even if it was all greys playing. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    African leagues

    I agree about the fact that research would be basic, but I'm sure once in the game sooner or later there will be a proper research

    ng a FM game with every nation playable, entire league structures all the way down to the amateurs in every nation, and their computers will be s

    You know the major problems with these new leagues being implemented will be research. If you think you can help why not email SI and find out if you can help in any way! I'd like to see more in Africa, Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East. Thing is I know nothing about these places!

    I am *sure* if SI could get the researchers for some of these leagues they could be implemented? An example of this would be non league in England. They need researchers all across the lower pyramid and there is a person to contact who are interested in helping with the research.

    I would suggest those wanting a league such as Boznia and who have good knowledge of the league post in the Data forum to see if SI are interested. Just an idea guys!

    To an extent I would agree that having NCAA teams (outside of the ones that compete in professional leagues BYU does i think for instance) but the fact that the license would probably be very expensive and you couldn't even use the real names of players on the teams (because they are amateurs), I feel like it would feel like it was lacking depth (Though i would like to take over a university team several years in the future when it's full of regens). Also i imagine it would be difficult to implement an entirely new league structure where you have to lose certain people every year to the MLS superdraft. still i'd like to see it.

    I like the NCAA idea. Personally I'd like to see at least one more level of English leagues (I know the research would be difficult...)

    More levels of leagues for big football countries, ie Brazil, Germany, etc.

    Also, (and apologies if I dreamt this), but are Scotland introducing a relegaton from the 3rd Division ?

    If they are, then whatever league is below that.

    i'd love to see some more leagues in Africa (Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast etc) like said above, plus the Iran, Iraq, Saudi, UAE, Qatari, and various other middle eastern leagues. The J-League is a given, we'd all love that one back in. Plus i wouldn't mind the NZ league in the game, i'm tired of their national team being far too easy to beat with the Aussie team, in real life we can only thrash them 4-nil, not 12-nil like you can do by 2015. Wales deserves a 2nd division, also, I think some more smaller european nations would be good.

    I think that would do us for at least 09!

    As said by me a number of times, the only one I really want is the U.A.E League. Hell, with Cocu and B. Kalou going over, it's defo. getting bigger.

    Me and the 'bro made a crude re-make with the Editor over the Malaysian League. (On 07). I don't think i've ever enjoyed a league more.

    Go on Al-Nasr! We love you.

    And why we need more english leagues. we have more than enough tiers in england.. there are quality leagues missing in the list, so... first of all i´m agree that mission N1 must be to add the second league of these countries, in which we can play only the first division. and after that some quality leagues.. the south american 4 missing leagues are the most quality missing leagues for sure

    Let's see....

    If I'm being optimistic, I'd like all the European and South American leagues in. The two biggest continents on footballing terms would be great if fully represented.

    Idealism aside, however, I'd swing for the following:

    A number of lesser leagues including Cyprus, Malta and the Faroe Islands, to provide a fun counterpoint to the major leagues.

    English expansion down a further two levels. One would be good, but two would be excellent and the two new levels together would introduce some fun concepts to play with, particularly with the general lack of contracted players and need for local talent.

    Africa's biggest and best leagues. Having only one African nation in the game makes it less interesting as a proposition. Expanding it to include Egypt, Ghana, Libya, Tunisia etc is an important step.

    Asia's quite good at the moment in the Far East and South East regions, but the middle east is virtually unrepresented. If we're to look at the top 14 nations according to the AFC, the East region in FM has Australia, China, Indonesia and South Korea (four of the seven, with Japan only absent due to licensing and one I'd love to see return) whilst the Central & West section ha only one - Saudi Arabia. Iran and Qatar would be good additions.

    North America needs to see more depth in the US, even though it's not a true pyramid as most leagues have. The USL - both divisions - would be a lovely step and a nice place for anyone trying a US career to start, with the goal of landing an MLS job rather than getting one off the bat.

    A few other leagues would be good to keep the competitive level of the continental competitions up - Costa Rica is a given, with Honduras, Trinidad & Tobago, Haiti and Jamaica good shouts.

    That leaves us with Oceania. The New Zealand league would bring a bit of life to the now-dead confederation. Perhaps Fiji and Vanuatu would be next to consider.


    Of course, all this is entirely subject to research, which is the main stumbling block when it comes to adding new leagues.

    Italian Serie D
    San Marino

    - Playable French 4th tier
    - Greek 3rd tier
    - maybe one Baltic league
    - I really hope for African leagues, but I know it's hard to research. The continent is way under-represented.
    - Also Saudi and Iranian league

    Before any leagues are added I'd like to see the link WSM Boxed Mac version of the patch fixed. Then I'd add Botswana's Elephant league.

    A friend in Australia told me that the only team of note in New Zealand, play in the A-League (genius how they do it isn't it, take the first letter of your country's name and add it in front of league )
    The NZ team in the A-League is sponsered by the Football Federation of Australia in an attempt to build the game over there. I'm actually against them playing in our comp and would love to see the money spent on building up thier own league (same for everyother damn comp for every other damn sport we've got they have to be in). NZ do actually have a league, teams like Team Wellington and Auckland City aren't that bad, they win the Oceanic Club Championship (not really an acomplishment though!).

    With the naming the brain squad at the old FFA decided to just mimic all the other Asian nations in their naming schemes (Japan=J-League, Korea=K-League etc) I can't stand it personally. But the term Australian Football League is taken by another crappy sport played over here.

    fwiw here's my view:-

    English lower levels (Unibond, Ryman & BGB Southern all divisions)
    Welsh Second Division (level below the Premier)
    Scottish Highland, East of Scotland and South of Scotland Leagues
    Add the rest of the missing European & South American Leagues (Paraguay, Bosnia & Faroes etc)
    Nigeria
    Cameroon
    Egypt
    Algeria
    Ghana
    Morocco
    Saudi Arabia
    Japan (If SI can get the license back!)
    Thailand
    UAE
    New Zealand (As there are currently no leagues for Oceania)

    I can fully understand that research may be difficult for some of the lower leagues but then most people sell those players on any way so maybe fill the lower league sides with regens and randomized players.
