  1. Hello. I would like to ask if any of you have a formula in your heads or a shortcut that you may use in creating unusual cup rounds. I've attached a screenshot from rounds designed by a friend of mine in the past but I've no idea how he thought it out (going back from the final, adding teams?); I've rolled back to basic rules since it shows in one neat screen how the teams enter and are distributed. I want to create some similar cups, but for a different number of teams and different number of added teams/round. So for instance say there's this cup with 420 teams, but (save for the first few qualifying rounds) I would like that for each new round 32 teams are added until the round of 64, then 0 for round of 32, then another 16 and striaght KO from there to the final. That's just one example. I would also like to make some regional cups inspired by the Brazilian state cups model. So say we have 53 teams. Teams from the highest division (say top 4) should enter around Q-final or S-final, then the lower-tiered say 10 teams a round before that, and the rest of 39 split into 2 or 3 qualifying rounds. I've seen here on the board an easy way to make the regional cups, by assigning the teams a secondary division, so that works for me. Therefore what I'm really looking to find out if you are using a specific method in making the calculations required for such types of cup rounds. Or maybe instead of calculating it, maybe use byes for the higher seeded teams? (I couldn't find where to give byes to teams in the advanced editor, though). Thanks! PS Does choosing a number of qualifying rounds in the editor have any real effect in the game?
  2. Curious. I mean, I know I can set a specific stadium in the editor, I've done that, but it hasn't worked. Maybe I need to make changes in more than one section?
  3. I'll try that, thanks! But in the end, the editor still won't allow for one single stadium (such as with Wembley) to always host the final?
  4. So I need to add more than one in addition to the one already under "stadiums for fixture"?
  5. I've been having another issue for awhile and I guess this is the best spot to ask the question. When making the main FA Cup I wanted the final to be played at neutral ground, a specific stadium. During the first few iterations of the db this worked but after awhile it stopped: right now, in-game there is always a "draw" for home team and the match is played at the grounds of one of the finalists. I'm attaching the relevant details in the hope that someone might offer some insight as to what is wrong. And by the same error I guess the neutral stadium rules for the semi-finals don't work either.
  6. Thank you! One other thing: if a cup uses teams from child competitions, which are all the same level, all should receive same seeding, a higher number than the division above?
  7. ...I think I'm realizing what I've overlooked
  8. Certainly. I'd like to note however that I've tried multiple combinations to no effect (sort by last position, reverse order).
  9. I'm also interested in how to make the poorest - either lowest reputation or lowest placing in the division - from a league play a preliminary round in a custom cup. All my efforts so far have resulted in the best 4 teams always playing the preliminary round...
  10. Is there a way to exclude (A) and B teams (Spanish style) from registration rules requiring a maximum no. of foreigners?
  11. Anyone know why the season odds appeared in April, when the season started in July? I'm thinking I didn't tick a box in the editor when I was should have, but I've no idea which one.
  12. Add players to playable teams

    I think reputation is a strong factor in how players are generated.
  13. National cup seeding problem

    Does Division 1 have to be same as Division 2, when picking "keep teams from same division apart"?
  14. What draw rules should I tick so as when the top division teams are drawn in the FA Cup, they don't play each other?
