  1. MLS Update Day

    Hi, everyone. I've finally been able to get back into playing FM again. I took a long hiatus to get through grad school and a couple of other life-related errata. I always loved being able to use the editor for simple things, but now advanced editor has opened up a dirge of other options. I've been browsing this board for a while in anticipation of diving into my own editing journeys, but I keep coming up short with errors. I've finally decided to come to the community with a question, and it seems a common one, though the common fixes don't seem to be helping. I'm trying to create an MLS structure with a simpler 6-team playoff. I seem to be able to get the teams into the final playoff round (which ends Nov 26) but the season doesn't finish in time for the update day the following year. I've tried removing the end dates and moving them all the way to the end of December. I'm wondering if there's an issue with the regular season that I can't see. Either way, any help would be appreciated. I've attached the file, which also includes the rest of the pyramid, but I'm only worried about MLS for now. Thanks in advance. usadv.fmf
  2. Playoff and Scheduling Issues

    This isn't possible to do in the basic editor. The BE only works with even numbered playoff teams. In the AE, you can qualify 3 teams in one stage and then seed them by their league position. I believe the editor then places the 3rd and 4th teams in the first round and have the winner play the team that starts in the second round (the 2nd place team). You would then use fate actions to qualify the winner of the second round for the relegation playoff, and then another fate action to determine what happens to the winner of that round depending on their division. This does indeed get rather complex. I learned by opening up leagues with similar structures in the advanced editor, taking screenshots, and trial and error. Even then, I still get stumped.
  3. Ok, no problem. Thanks for your response!

  5. Cannot Add Playoff Teams

    What do you mean by 'fixing both of them at the same time'? Do you mean you selected both stages and made the edits?
  6. Promoted and relegated teams do not match up!

    How did you fix it? I'm having a similar issue.
  7. So I'm trying to set up a 6-team MLS playoff with the top 2 teams getting a first round bye. I'm not sure If I do this using the fate options or the draw mapping settings. Any insight into this?
