Regional divisions moving around

Recommended Posts

Having a problem that is sort of hard to explain, but I'll give it a go.

I am creating a system where there's about a dozen regional divisions under a 'parent' with a playoff to the league above. 3 go up in total and 3 come down to join the regional leagues. What my problem is is that teams are moving horizontally between leagues for no reason, and teams aren't being put into the right places. For example, teams are coming mid-table and randomly being moved to a new division.

In addition, there is a second tier of regional leagues below with direct promotion/relegation simply from A->B of the same region/federation. Teams that should have been promoted have instead been promoted into random other leagues. I am at a loss.

I assume it's something to do with the relegated teams being assigned leagues and numbers forcing others out, but I've tried fiddling with all that to no avail. Am I missing something?

Doing this in standard rather than advanced editor btw.

Hersh.

i just copied my answer from some other thread but i think it will be helpfull...

this is oldest problem for all of us who try to make lower leagues. I made "Serbian lower leagues" for FM14. 7- level system with 151 leagues and 1850 playable teams. You cant solve that wrong-division issue at all but you can decrease % of wrong division teams. I have about 5-7% after 10-15 seasons and thats acceptable for me. you need to set this properly:

1. set right cities for clubs and their stadiums.

2. set boundaries for competitions

3. set regional divisions settings for all clubs

also i made whole new cities because game use "square" when make boundaries ( and when you use 4 cities it make square on map) and if some of that squares have overlap (is this right word? i used google translate...) clubs can go to wrong division because their city belong to 2 or more "squares". i made new cities and set latitude and longitude so i cant have that square "overlap. however i again have wrong division teams because sometimes from division we have 3 or more relegate teams to one county and for other counties 1 or none.

I have done that. The problem is that the 'regions' aren't exclusive to the leagues. They're based on federations, to which clubs belong, but there are more than one in a number of regions.

There should be no reason why a team in mid-table in a league should have any cause to move over to another however.

maybe you have that "square overlap" if i use right word and if you understand what i mean by that

Again, I'm pretty sure I don't, but that shouldn't make a difference.

What should happen is simply that teams relegated from the domestic league from the regional should fit in where there is space, and maybe 1 or 2 move around if really need be. There is no reason why so many teams should be moving.
