Well seeing as I was responsible for starting this challenge a couple of seasons ago I'll take the responsibilty for starting this thread this year. I will also definitely give it a serious run for its money. Thanks to the editor and super bladesman's hard work we're going to do it a little different this season. First you will need to download super bladesman's English League level 10. This can be found HERE. Just follow his instructions, its real easy. RULES 1 - No need this season to go on holiday because as you have the ultimate challenge you can get to it straight off. Take control of a "level 10" club, anyone you like. 2 - Be honest when entering your nationality and of course your experience is "Sunday League Footballer". Tick the "Add key staff" button to get you started staff wise. 3 - Under no circumstances are you permitted to buy or loan players from any club or bring in freebies. Your only access to players are your youth system and your "grey players". I do believe the game will actually give you a full squad of regens. You can however loan players OUT. This may well become key in getting those regens upto scratch. How much detail you run with is irrelevant as is including other leagues or size of database as you can't buy those players anyway. 4 - You may only bring in a coach, physio or assistant if you haven't got one already. His/her reputation must be "obscure". The idea is that when your youth players get older you employ them as staff. 5 - The 1st part of this challenge is complete when you have won the Premiership AND Champions' League with a team made up entirely of your own youth products. Your staff must also be a product of your youth system. 6 - No international management until you have completed the 1st part of this challenge. When the first part of the challenge is complete you can take the England job (and only the England job). Then to be the ultimate supremo you must win the World Cup with a squad of ONLY your players and staff from your own club whilst still winning the Champions' League and Premiership in the same season. These rules may be updated along the way so keep watching. REMEMBER!!! There is no way anyone is ever going to complete this without cheating. The question is which one of us can get the furthest. Please give the sort of end of season reports you see in the other challenges. In this challenge avoiding relegation by a point, from say the North West Counties League Premier Division", is definitely going to be a major achievement. Cheers and the very best of luck
A little history lesson Back in FM07, an experiment was created to analyse how the game engine would handle extreme circumstances. A fictional team, the Bandits, were created, given 22 superstar teenagers, a huge bank balance and the freedom to rise up from their initial starting point of the Conference South. In addition, two bad eggs were created. Equally as talented as the kids at the Bandits, they had abysmal mental statistics, with no intention of loyalty or even working hard. The experiment ran for over two years of real time, and nearly 70 years in-game. [EDIT - if you want to skip straight to the first update, you'll find it here: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?p=2946303#post2946303]
The Aim To take a small club who were previously unplayable in the game from the Blue Square N/S to Premier League and Champions League glory. The Rules Just like last year, to make sure that the eligible teams have the correct squads, we will be using a .ddt file to retain the players for those teams. Download Link Alternative download link. If for any reason these don't work, let me know, I'll fix them. Here's where it needs to go: Vista - C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt Steam - C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt Or with the 10.2.0 patch, here: C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\data\updates\update-1020\db\1020\edt To make sure it is working, when you set up your game, go to preferences - extra files. You should see it listed and ticked in there like this. Load a game with the English leagues only, with the Blue Square N/S selected, a large database (or smaller if preferred), the attribute masking, real players and transfer boxes ticked and the add key staff box unticked. It should look like this. In addition this year, for those of you who want to add to the database to make things more competitive at the top level in the long term, you can set the database level to custom to add the players for the top clubs in each continent. It should look like this. This is purely optional, but no extra players can be loaded on top of this, this is the limit. The extra levels of detail that you can change while in the game are up to you, as they shouldn't make a difference. Add yourself as an unemployed manager, the details are not important at all. I like to call mine 'Holiday Man'. Go on holiday until 25th June, this shouldn't take too long, perhaps about an hour. Saving on 24th June may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this. Retire your 'Holiday Man' manager. After spending his entire career on holiday I'd love to know how he spends his retirement. Add a new manager, the options are up to you but 'past experience' must be set to the lowest possible which is 'Sunday league footballer'. I understand that choosing different nationalities may have an effect later on, but I trust people will be sensible with this. I would expect people to use their own true nationalities. Whena adding a new manager, choose one of the new clubs promoted to the Blue Square North or South to manage. They should appear in this list which also shows the reputation of the possible clubs. The reputation should act as a difficulty level, the lower the reputation, the harder your game should be.

It is now up to you to manage this club all the way to the Premier League title and UEFA Champions League crown. You may not move clubs unless you are sacked. If you get sacked, you can either take over a newly promoted club that satisfies the original criteria (check the club's league history), or just start again. Any form of international management is not allowed, until you have completed the challenge. Assigning parent clubs and loaning players is completely up to the player, although it should be noted that on occasions a parent club can lend players which will make the first season or two slightly less of a challenge. It is completely up to you how you play this one, but everyone knows real men don't use parent club loans. Personally, I like to assign a parent club for financial benefits but never take any players on loan from them. To sign a player, you must be able to scout them, this doesn't mean you have to, just he must be accessible to your scouts. If you have a foreign player on a free transfer who is willing to come on trial, you do not need to be able to scout them, as long as you have them at the club on trial so you can get a coach report on him. No external utilities such as scouting programs should be used and the database should be unedited, this is particularly important with the new changes to the editor. Should SI release a data update, this would be allowed but any other data updates are not. It is advised that people should update using the latest patches as they are released, we have waited for 10.1 before starting so I would expect to see everyone using it from day one. Use of save game editors is strictly banned, whatever the reason. Rules for this Thread Player naming is allowed. General discussion on tactics is allowed, although people should not refer to downloaded tactics. They are not banned, but I would expect the majority of people to avoid them. Screenshots for anything are encouraged but please post links to your pictures, don't post them as images as it makes the pages slower to load. Posts included embedded images may be deleted without warning. When you join the challenge, could you post a screenshot of your manager's profile on the 25th June like this. Progress of your club should be documented using this thread, we want to hear the story of your club all the way through. Please keep us updated, even if you are doing really badly. At the end of every season, could everyone post some kind of season review, including at least a screenshot of a league table and the clubs transfer page. If you give this a title in bold it makes it a bit easier to pick out. Sadly we no longer have the website to track our progress, so there will not be any full tables posted as there have been in the past. I will try and keep a table of PL and CL wins and completions going, so if you win either competition for the first time please make it clear in your end of season review. How to Post a Screenshot While in FM, press Alt and F9 A picture will be saved to a screenshots folder, in the FM10 folder in your documents Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket Post the direct Url to the image here. How to Add Links At the top of the forum, go to 'Settings' then 'General Settings' (on the left). At the bottom, select 'enhanced interface' and save the changes. This will give you access to the extra posting tools that make it easier to post links. Once you've done this, highlight the word you wish to turn into a link, then use the link button (looks like a little globe) to paste in the direct Url to your screenshot. Enjoy
The Afrovision Managerial Contest (Much of this is a repeat from the opening post of the first thread. Please read it all though, as some details have been added in) From around the globe, 53 managers have come to Africa! Home to what is perhaps the most flamboyant football in the world, and what is essentially an underrated continent in footballing terms. However, the 53 impoverished nations that make up the continent can together boast a number of stars, which tells us that the quality is there. All that is needed is the public attention, and that is what the continent shall get as The Afrovision Managerial Contest lands upon the 30.2 million km2 of earth. The South African multimedia company known as Broadcasters, African Television, Radio and Complete Entertainment Revolution (BATRACER) is the key company behind the new scheme that will bring fame to African football. After some success after a similar contest was trialled in the Americas, and of course following the huge international celebrity of the Eurovision Song Contest and the Eurovision Striking Contest, Africa is the next continent to be swept by the reality TV and interactive show craze. BATRACER will be broadcasting the Contest to all 53 African nations, and of course to the most interested of other nations (those currently being: the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, Russia, China and Japan), and will offer exclusive coverage of the finals. Here’s how it works: 53 of you have been selected to be the managers of the African nations. Mayotte and Réunion, not being FIFA members, have opted not to take part in the contest. The nation you will manage has been randomly assigned to you, and you can find out whose yours is below. With all the managers set at their nations, I will simulate two months of game time and provide a report. I’ll then do this again until I have done six reports and covered a year of game time. This is where you’ll come in: as Africa is such a huge continent, two nations will get a bye to the final. These will be the holder/host and the highest ranked African team at the end of the 12 months. If these are the same, the bye will go to the next-highest ranked team. The other 51 nations will compete in Semi-Finals, 17 in each of the three semi-finals. From each of the three, five nations will qualify, joining with the two biggest nations to make a 17-strong final. You will be expected to vote in the semi-finals and final, so it is essential that you are able to continue to follow the sign-up once you have signed up. If you are one of the two nations with a bye, I will get you to give your votes for a specific semi-final. The others will vote for their own semi-final. All 53 managers are expected to vote in the final. As per the Eurovision Song Contest, your votes will consist of a 12-pointer, a 10-pointer, an 8-pointer and votes from 7 down to 1 points. After the votes, the nations are ranked in order of the number of points they have earned; the top five go through from the semi-finals but only the top nation will matter in the final, as they will be crowned the seasonal champion and will host the next contest. If nations are tied, they will be sorted by the number of 12-pointers they have received, then the number of 10-pointers, etcetera, until the tie is broken. You have each created your manager and attributes have been assigned to that manager depending on how you valued different components of the Eurovision system. You have also been assigned a nation using a random number generator. Here are the managers of the nations that will take part in the tournament: [font=Courier New] [b]Username Manager NAT Managing...[/b] [/font][font=Courier New]DodgeeD David Dodgson ENG Congo (Republic of) [/font][font=Courier New]Whoopy D Whoopy Dee’e CMR Djibouti [/font][font=Courier New]weeeman27bob Weeman Fernandez PER Namibia [/font][font=Courier New]bergtaur Hryhorii Zahorchak UKR Chad [/font][font=Courier New]Cardiovascular Cardio Hernandes POR Sierra Leone [/font][font=Courier New]Pau[/font][font=Courier New]lHartman71 Jeremy English ENG Sudan [/font][font=Courier New]pompey13 Pompey 13 ENG Malawi [/font][font=Courier New]joetheref Joe Tompkins ENG Lesotho [/font][font=Courier New]MattFergie Matt Ferguson SCO Somalia [/font][font=Courier New]dafuge dafuge ENG Mozambique [/font][font=Courier New]NeoAC Ryan Andrews RSA Swaziland [/font][font=Courier New]rancer890 Ricky Nakano CAN Central African Republic [/font][font=Courier New]canvey!!

Pretty soon, BATRACER will send out its first broadcast updating 62 nations on the progress of the new competition. After six broadcasts, the competition starts properly, ramping up pace for live voting shows. Don’t forget, as a manager, you are expected to vote in the semi-final that you are involved in and the final, and if you receive a bye I will give you a semi-final to vote in. I have marked several of those who have signed up on a watchlist: if you are one of them and you miss a tournament’s worth of voting, you may be dropped without warning. If you miss one set of votes, your nation is deducted 12 points for that set of votes. The spotlight now turns to South Africa, the host of the inaugural tournament. It will be up to their manager Matt Lepino to ensure that the host nation delivers a good performance themselves. So, without further ado…let the games begin! Some Notes Each manager has started with a Current Ability of 130 and a Potential Ability of 160. They have a reputation of 7000 for each of the three reputation values. During standard update time, I will post an update every other day. Then updates will cease for a bit during the voting period, and updates will be every day during the tournaments. Managers mentioned in any reports will be mentioned using their manager name. The table above is a good example of one you can use to cross-reference if necessary. There will be times when I cannot make an update. I will tell you in advance and, if possible, will provide you with a few updates at once if I am going away for a week or two. The leagues loaded are the first divisions of England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal and South Africa. These will be run on minimal detail while international friendlies, the World Cup, the African Cup of Nations and African qualifying for those two will be run on full detail. If your manager gets sacked or leaves his job, you will retain your place in the sign-up. However, other forumers will be made aware that your manager is no longer in his/her job, so your performance in the following finals may suffer, but would improve thereafter. You are at risk of losing your place in the sign-up, however, if you fail to vote (see the stipulations above). The image is courtesy of news.myjoyonline.com.
