  1. Are you going to be running a new sign up / challenge for FM2009?

    I intend to run my Big Euro Nation challenge again this year, hopefully starting it from the off can raise the profile of the challenge.

    Are you going to be posting your thread as soon as the game is released or wait until a patch has been released?

    I will probably post it soon after release (However I have no idea when i'll be getting FM09, probably for Christmas).

  2. I have a vague idea for an interesting mix of sign-ups and ideas which have been suggested recently. (ObviouslI'd need all the relevant permissions from Birdy and aaberdeenn to start this up, and I won't have time to run this myself (Due to school and exams) however I would be willing to sort out the database then hand it over to someone else to run!

    The main idea is a mix of Birdy's sign-up (With his permission of course) and aaberdeenn's idea (Again with permission). I would set up a draft style (like in Birdy's thread) but with only premiership (And perhaps one other league - spain or italy i'm thinking - to keep it different from Birdy's game), then instead of using a simple league table in game to determine success, base the points on perhaps one, two, five or even ten seasons in game, with points for wins and draws, minus points for defeats. Then perhaps points for goals scored by a team (eg 50 goals in 1 season - 10 points or something then 60 goals - 15 points etc), points deducted for conceding more than x amount of goals (perhaps 35-40) in similar amounts to goals scored.

    Then run a league table in the thread based on these points. Its a bit complicated and I would like to hear your thoughts. As I have already said, I would be prepared to do some editing, but would not have the time to run it, so if people like the idea someone will have to be willing to take it on.

    I personally like the idea of concentrating on a manager's career.

    Something like:

    Unemployed to Millionaire

    Load up all the English leagues, set your manager as unemployed, reputation of Automatic, and see how many seasons it takes for you to make £1m (this can be changed depending on how easy it is). Awards would then be given for who made the million fastest, who had the most money after x, y, and z years.

    Been thinking of something like this since I saw the "career earnings" feature had been put in the game.

    That would be a great idea!

  5. Challenge Idea - Hong Kong Double

    Before I start, having looked into this in game, I cannot seem to find any competitive fixtures for Hong Kong - would this be thae case every time, or do i have to run certain leagues to 'set off' national competitions?

    Basically, I had a look around and noticed the lack of Asian challenges. I had a look in game, and based on a couple of the successful challenges already running, devised an initial idea for a new task - quite simply to start at "Workable", the lowest predicted club side in Hong Kong's First Division, with only basic training and minimal youth facilities, and lead them to glory domestically, trying to win the First Division. Unfortunately, Hong Kong doesn't qualify as a 'mature' nation in Asia, and hence cannot qualify for a place in the Champions League, however, if this state changes with reputation in the game (Would need some help/info on that) this could be another aim).

    Also, the second aim is to then manage to get the Hong Kong (China PR)national job (Through either application or being 'headhunted') and lead them to a World Cup and get as far as possible, trying to win it (Hong Kong have never qualified for the World Cup before. In doing this, you can then aim to gat the nation to their highest national rating - above 96th. Then, as yet another challenge on the national scale, win the Asian championships (previous best is 3rd).

    Would there be much interest for this difficult challenge?

    Has anyone got any suggestions to further enhance the idea?

    Can anyone possibly shed any light on if Hong Kong teams may be able to qualify for the Asian Champions League in future, if reputation rises enough/is this something which is likely to happen?
