Replacing the current club continental competitions

Recommended Posts

Not asking anyone to create anything for me, merely wondering before I try and create it, if it's possible to (for example) get rid of the UEL and UCL, the Copa Libertadores, and African Champions League etc and instead have a World Champions League with just the champions from around the world taking part in a large tournament (maybe the top 32 or 64 countries champions) and a World Something Or Other League for teams coming in positions 2-4 for example (apologies for the name of the lesser competition, that's until I can come up with a sort of sensible name, if anyone has any ideas, let me know please), and maybe even a 3rd similar competition for clubs coming 5th and 6th.

Any ideas if it's possible or not, while getting rid of the various club continental competitions? If so, would I need to go to every country I want to use and go into the Nation Rules for them too? Sorry if it sounds complicated, just wondering if it's possible before I begin making a start on it, assuming it's possible of course.

Yes it is possible to make it and not too difficult, the only problem I'm finding is I can't disable the current competitions though.

You make it through the continental rules screen adding all the countries of the world then setting how you would like them to qualify, which round etc.

Right, that's fine. I just need to make sure I can get rid of the current competitions though, otherwise the top teams could end up playing a daft number of games in a season. If someone knows how to get rid of every other countries continental competitions, please let me know (African Champions League, Club World Cup, Europa League, Copa Libatadores etc).

Yes I am really hoping someone knows how, I have tried turning them 'extinct' and deleted all the clubs but this doesn't help.

Yup, without being able to get rid of every other continental competition, I'm going to find it basically impossible to do it without giving some of the best teams a ridiculous number of games a season.

Thinking of doing similar for the international teams, eg a Major World Cup (the 64 teams ranked highest with qualification to get to the MaWC itself with 8 groups of 8 and the top 3 in each group automatically qualifying and the teams in 4th and 5th in each group going through to the playoffs so 16 teams, with 8 winners of the playoffs also qualifying, giving 32 teams)

A Minor World Cup (the rest of the countries qualifying to get to the MiWC itself but would have to come up with something different for them).

Also the same for the European Championship with a Major European Championship (32 highest ranked European teams qualifying to get to the MaEC with 8 groups of 4 and the winners of each group qualifying automatically and then positions 2 and 3 in each group going through to the playoffs giving 16 teams, with the 8 winners of the playoffs also qualifying, giving 16 teams)

A Minor European Championship (the rest of the European countries qualifying to get to the MiEC but would have to come up with something different for them)

Doing that might be even more awkward though due to the issue of teams moving in the rankings throughout the year, but it might be possible somehow, but I doubt it sadly (again I'd have to get rid of the current World Cup and European Championship).

You need to go into add continental rules select a continent other than World and then leave it blank. Repeat it until there are no other continents left. Save it as a separate editor data file each time and run them alongside the World Champions League.

So if I do that, the other leagues around the world will still carry on, but it'd get rid of every continental competition except for the competitions I chose to create? If so, that's just what I want to hear. I'd presumably need to do the same if I wanted to do similar for a World Cup, African Cup of Nations, European Championship, Copa America, or would I have to go about that in a different way? You can obviously get a rough idea as to what I want to do with them in my previous post, but it wouldn't be based on continent, it'd be a case of literally the top 64 teams in the world, wherever they are, trying to qualify for the Major World Cup.

The leagues should carry on and I can't see any reason why they won't. It doesn't work for internationals though. If you wanted to do that you'd have to use the existing competitions and add them in from scratch. Which I think is what you want to do.

As far as the internationals go, I kind of do but kind of don't, if that makes sense. In effect I want 2 World Cups, 2 European Championships, keep the Copa America, the African Cup of Nations etc, but I want to in effect change the way they're done, so 4 different qualification processes for the 4 World Cup/European Championships and the teams for the qualifying groups for each tournament sorted by ranking on a certain date, as obviously teams will change ranking positions throughout the year.

I appreciate that the way I worded it up there may sound pretty complicated (it is to me as well if I'm honest) but I'd love to be able to in effect get rid of the current World Cup, and create 2 new World Cups with qualification done in the way I want it, and the rankings to determine whether a country takes part in qualifying for the Major World Cup or the Minor World Cup (plus I guess i'd have to sort out hosts etc as well), but also have it so that if say Oman were ranked 73 now, but in say 2022 they were ranked 43, they'd move from the Minor World Cup qualifying section to the Major World Cup qualifying section.

I tried your method but I just get this error message when I load the databases, the game doesn't crash it just continues to load as normal.

So it makes no difference? It still loads? If so then there's no problem. If not just try and have the winner of the top two nations league play each other in one match. Don't make it that high a rep and don't put any money in it. I do know what you mean for the qualifying and internationals, well I have a good idea.

It loaded yes but the competitions were still the old ones and my new ones didn't even load up. I have found a way around the problem now, it was so simple, I just overwrote the files in the editor instead of creating new ones!

What I did was replaced the CL etc with pointless competitions featuring teams who'd never qualify for the real CL.

For instance, I'd, say, add cups to England or Scotland using the CL as the competition and these cups would be like a two legged match between the winner of the Conference North and winner of the Conference South early on.
