Ever Killed A Team?

40 posts in this topic

What I mean is just release all their players, leave them with nothing, then resign to watch them sink?

I did that with Falkirk after a horrible run with them in the First Division. They annoyed me completely, underachieved, complained and moaned all the time, and couldn't get promoted after losing the last game. So I released every player from first team to reserves to under 18's and just watched them sink. Surprisingly they only managed to sink to the second division and promoted back to First, but they're always in relegation zone. And every manager seems to get sacked from Falkirk, quite amusing.

I did something more fun in FM07.

I was managing Villa. There was a broad takeover and the new owner decided to sack me and employ someone else. So I went back to my save 2 weeks ago (I have a rolling save every two weeks) and offer every single players a 5 years contract with the highest wages (about 40000 a week i think) plus a 25% annual rise plus maximum bonus.

Two weeks later i got sack as expected. What they have left then was a huge wage bill which they can't maintain. The new manager can't sell anyone due to the high wage. With the 25% rise it get worse every season. The slump all the way down to the league two and bankrupted a several times on the way. They change manager every few months but nothing can help them get out of the rot. Strange things is they were still able to attract high profile-ish manager to manage them and sometimes still able to get better players than other division rivals. I guess that was due to higher reputation than others.

pretty much every english game i play i do the same to chelsea, just to restore the balance in the prem. it's not so straightforward but very much fun. release all the players i can, set those i can't release's asking prices to zero and offer them to everyone when they have pretty much have no players left i buy someone from a non-playable league for 50-60 million and then sign free transfer guff players on 5-year 125k p/w contracts just to insure they fail. it really helps me in terms of longevity of my game just watching them nosedive. usually they end up as league one also-rans and bankrupt.

priceless!

I'm actually quite surprised I still get hired after my Falkirk incident.

Hmm maybe I'll add another manager and steal a couple of Celtic players, they keep sticking their noses in my transfers.

I'm currently doing the same with Barcelona. I'm trying to sell all their players and replace them with rubbish free transfers. I've moved all their first team to the B-Team and registered them and gone on holiday until January.

I've also sent a load of them I couldn't sell to an Italian feeder team.

I am in control of Harrogate in the lowest english league, but created another user just to see Chelsea go down. Donated all their money by buying terrible players from Dundee, sold all their players, and then again used all their money recieved from the transfers. Then I fired all the staff members, and signed just horrible players from free transfer and offered them the longest contract possible with the highest salery and of cause 25 % wage raise. Now to seasons later they are in recievership, already owing the bank 450 million punds, and about to be taken over by the third board in just two years. I just hate Chelsea if you have not realised that yet [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

as i do in every game i play.....i set man utd rep to 10, gave them minimal training and youth facilities . got rid of their best players, and then signed all the rest to maximum allowable contract 25% yearly increase. sacked all their staff, fined and criticised all remaining players.
spent all their transfer budget on rubbish players, signed up all the useless unattached players to further increase their wage bill.
then i sit back and enjoy [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

I did that to Man Utd in CM3. The difference was that I played them, picking weird formations with no goalkeeper to see them get pummelled 35-0 each game. I sold as many Man U superstars to Brighton for almost nothing (except most of the players refused to go), released players that had high value long term contracts (except the board prevented me sometimes), and signed all the Brighton youth dollars for millions. I kept getting fired every few months and had to retire and re-create myself. It only took a few days to play enough seasons to get ManU out of the league. Silly, but quite fun for a distraction.

It's fun. As a Leeds fan I used to do it to Man U once I'd got bored playing the game properly. I'd sell all the stars and buy in some rubbish/mediocre people for ALL their transfer money. Then go on holiday as ManU manager and play my game as a proper manager, watching them go all the way down. And yes, I was motivated purely by spite and jealousy.

Haven't been bothered to do it in releases that see Leeds languishing in the lower reaches.

I sometimes ruin Leeds just for sh!ts and giggles if I'm bored. Start them in the Premiership, but rack up the debt and turn back the clock. Watch them get relegated, twice, all over again. It's great. Not jealousy (what's to be jealous of?). Not spite. Just pure and uninhibited loathing.

The challenge is keeping them there wihout getting sacked.
