  1. In Korea, 2 teams were unable to qualify for the Asian Champions League (ACL) due to them being military teams However this year, one team (Chungnam Asan) are no longer a military team and are allowed to qualify again for the ACL. This is what it looks like in the game. Does anybody know how to change this in the Advanced Rules? I'd like to allow them to qualify the same as the other Korean teams.

  3. I am trying to edit an FA Cup structure and I am bit confused about how to add teams based on their league, or continental qualification. The structure is essentially this. The whole competition has 60 teams, start to finish. The first round has 11 teams from the 5th tier of the country. The 5th tier has 11 small local leagues, so I can tell the game to choose the best team from each individual competition to select the 11. It then also adds 11 teams from the 4th tier. And then the 10 'worst' teams from the 3rd tier, for a total of 32 teams. The second round has the 16 winners from the previous round, with the addition of the other 6 teams from the 3rd tier and entire 10 teams of the 2nd tier. That is a total of 32 teams again, 16 winners go to the next round. The third round is where things start to get complicated. This has the 16 previous round winners plus 8 of the teams from the 1st tier that did NOT qualify for the Asian Champions League. This is a total of 24 teams, 12 winners go through. There is an issue here if a team not in the 1st tier qualifies for the Asian Champions League, which I assume would cause the cup to not be able to get enough teams at one stage and I don't understand how to prevent that. The fourth round has the previous 12 winners, plus the 4 teams that qualified for the Champions League, for a total of 16 teams. The fifth, semis and finals are simple, just a knockout without adding teams. Now my issue is, is there any way to set this up in the Advanced editor? Can anybody help with any if this at all? I have just spent a day adding a 5th tier to my database and adding a whole bunch of clubs and league changes. But the FA cup is my final hurdle to get this league perfect.
  4. Season 2021 Review League Table - Fixtures 1 - Fixtures 2 - Team Overview - Finances - Club Vision - Transfers Thanks to a very good run in the middle of the season, we managed to avoid relegation fairly easily. The form at the start of the season was expected, but the form towards the end was abysmal and I can't really work out why. Our top scorer did only get 9 League goals, the Kosovan with too many L's in his name, Erblin Llullaku. The man scored a decent amount, but his lack of pace is annoying and I may need to move him on if I can blood a suitable replacement next season. The only major transfer casualty was Halvard Kvamme Urnes. He only had 2 months left on his contract and refused to sign a new one. Due to his huge transfer value of £0, I couldn't get any upfront money for him, but I was able to get a '50% of next transfer' clause in there. So if he sells for money on his next transfer, I will get something at least. But it is unlikely I will ever see any money from that, unfortunately. The two star players were Lars Rydje & Sander Hagen. They both had very good seasons, but I don't think I'll be able to hold onto Rydje once his contract runs out at the end of next season. Youth Prospects Due to the youth intake happening before the season starts, in February, my original post had a quick overview of the candidates. After a season, I have a better grasp of the prospects I have. The following 5 are the best of a very good bunch. Sven Granlund - Jumped straight into the first team and has played all season. Hoping he continues progressing. Onar Aaslund - Lacked a decent RB this season so he got a bit of game time. His pace is terrible, so works better as a defensive full back. Atle Ingebretsen - I definitely didn't give this guy enough game time, but looks solid and will likely get alot of game time next year. Will be the Llullaku replacement. Hakon Hagen & Ali Esmaeili - Two top looking prospects. Got no game time because I play a narrow diamond and don't need wingers. I will loan them out or adapt my formation Now that I have finished a full season and I know I should be able to continue improving from here and (hopefully) won't be sacked, I will spend most the pre-season trying to get every player on as long a contract as possible. We already lack depth in the midfield and I don't want to lose any more players if possible.
  5. So after almost one season, Allerod are officially relegated and I am kicked out the club. The board were actually happy with my performances all season, but no lower leagues means I lose my role. I am actually annoyed at this, this team had Excellent youth recruitment so I was looking forward to the regens. Sacking Message League Position Time to move on I guess. I will be starting again in Norway. I have been very fortunate this time again with a team that were in the top division as recently as 8 seasons ago; Hønefoss BK. Newly Added Manager Let's hope I can get more than 1 win this season. Edit: Quick update. The youth intake happens before the season starts, in February. Looks like a few useful additions - Youth Intake The 2 most useful additions are a decent backup Goalkeeper Sondre Sagbakken and a backup Right Back, Onar Aaslund, as I was lacking anything decent on the right
  6. I decided to manage in a country I had never tried before, Denmark. After a couple of save reloads, I spotted Allerød Fodbold Klub. They already have excellent youth recruitment and excellent academy coaching. This is a massive advantage to the start of this journey. Let's hope I don't get fired within the first 3 months.
  7. I have been playing this game for so many years, but I am still useless at it, so I avoided this challenge. Time for a shot at it. I start with Merthyr.
  8. Does anybody know where the flexible rules option has gone in the editor? I can't seem to add division properly to the nation without changing that rule (unless I'm just an idiot). It's usually on the right in the image below
  9. So I finished my first season with Knockbreda. I decided not to win the league, despite leading for about 30 games. I thought it best to give it to Portadown, I felt bad for them. We were supposed to be in a relegation battle, so I thought it only fair... Only kidding. I bottled it in the last month. My strikers seemed to forget where the goal was and my defenders were on some sort of strike. So I won nothing. Didn't get promoted. Was a decent season compared to expectations. But my team was also stripped by bigger teams because of semi-pro contracts. I'm not sure whether I will move on to another team, or if I will give Knockbreda another season. I have May and June to think about that I guess.
  10. So this is my first time ever joining a challenge on these forums, even though I have played for years and done many challenges on my own time. Started unemployed, no badges, no experience. Managed to get the job at Knockbreda. The journey begins.
  11. That makes sense for the first season, team was newly relegated. But the second season? I had the cup that season too. Is this just a weird glitch because of the lack of regional cups in the database?
  12. I'm currently on my third season with Magdeburg in 3.Liga (3rd tier). Had 2 previous seasons in the same league and as such, I was entered into the DFB-POKAL at the very first round in those 2 seasons. But this season I haven't been entered into that competition at all. It's not even a target in my club vision, even though it was with the first 2 seasons. This is also the first season that introduced the Euro Cup 2, not sure of that is relevant, but it is the only competition change I can see. I only have the german leagues loaded currently. I'm not sure if this is an issue, or there was a change with this cup in real life. I've attached images below.
  13. Ansan Police in KL2 have the wrong name. They haven't been called that since 2016. They are now known as Asan Mugunghwa FC - https://www.asanfc.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asan_Mugunghwa_FC https://namu.wiki/w/%EC%95%84%EC%82%B0%20%EB%AC%B4%EA%B6%81%ED%99%94 https://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EC%95%84%EC%82%B0_%EB%AC%B4%EA%B6%81%ED%99%94_%EC%B6%95%EA%B5%AC%EB%8B%A8
  14. Afternoon all I have been trying to activate the lower tiers in South Korea and add the real life promotion system they have. I have spent 3 hours getting several errors regarding dates and not being able to get enough teams and I have managed to get past all them. But I have just ran into an error I can't work out. I test the rules of all the 5 leagues and the first 4 divisions work fine, but as soon as I test the 5th tier, it get's to about November 2018 in it's simulation and then shows an error stating "Error in nation rules - unknown type". I have attached a screenshot Does anybody know what this error means?
  15. I just decided to start this challenge. Lost my only goalkeeper to Swindon. I am now forced to use a grey player, seeing as I can't sign anybody at all. This is torture already and it's only my first season.
