Air Miles Man - Back to Civilisation

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am currently enjoying another career update I am doing with my node maps, but having another idea and with a bit of gusto to manage elsewhere in the world apart from Africa. I have devised a new challenge game that I think will be fun for a good while.

I will be starting in Fiji, and a random club and seeing how well I can do there. However I will have to earn the right to move clubs, through wins at that the current club and each win will give me air miles that will accumulate over time to allow me to potentially move to a club elsewhere.

The formula for accumulating air miles is the following:-

1 x Country World Ranking on the date of my first domestic fixture of the season x Win a Trophy Modifier x Short Season Modifier (1 x WRM X WTM X SSM)

So minimum for every win I get 1 mile per win.

The table for modifiers for World Rankings is as follows:-

World Ranking Modifier
1 700%
2 693%
3 686%
4 679%
5 672%
6 666%

The win a trophy modifier is a straight doubling effect if I win a trophy in that season

So a working example might be, say I am managing Anderlecht in Belgium and win the league. The formula would be (1 x 7 x 2) as they are ranked 1st in the world and I would have won a trophy but the season is over 30 games long. Each win would net me 14 air miles.

And the short season modifier is there in case I play less than 30 fixtures in a season, everything is multiplied up to a 30 fixture season. So if my season is 10 games long and I win 8 games, then the air miles for those games would be multiplied by 3 in this case.

Specific Rules For The Challenge

  1. The epicentre for the miles to and from each club are from club stadium to club stadium when I move clubs.
  2. I must only move to another club whether through application or headhunted if they are less than the accumulated miles I have acquired.
  3. I can only load other leagues once the closest point of the country is within the accumulated miles distance. Not all countries are there databases for so, some countries do not count, I can't move there anyway.
  4. I can take the national job of the country I am working in, in an effort to improve their world ranking and speed things along.
  5. If I am sacked I lose all my points and must take another job in the same country (within 100 miles of the last job).
  6. World Ranking Modifiers are set on the date of the first domestic competitive fixture I play in that season. They only change at the same point in the next season.
  7. When and if I do move jobs I lose the air miles for that transit. So if the clubs are 500 miles apart and I have 520 air miles, I can move and I keep 20 air miles in the bank.
  8. If a job comes to me mid season and I have not yet completed the season at my club, I will calculate the air miles gained that season on the basis of what has happened up to that point, if I have not yet won a trophy I cannot include the modifier and the world ranking is what was set at the start of the season, all short season modifiers are forfeit.
  9. Director of Football challenge, my staff must bring in players, although I have final say on which players leave.#
  10. Manager can be any nationality but must start with no badges or experience.

So there you have it, really the goal will be to win as many things as possible and get back to Europe, and I should in theory have some long term stints at clubs and hopefully be able to build up some powerhouses as I go through.

Next up we will find out who we will be managing in Fiji.

We take charge at Division One Nadogo, this is the second tier of Fijian football and our manager is Sergio Cordoba, an Argentinean starting out his career in the backwater of Pacific football. This is going to be some challenge

Finances, or lack there of.

A very short season it would appear.

The club have never won a single trophy in their history, lets see if we can go about changing that.

Our only pre-season friendly is a 4-2 win for us, a decent performance by the team as we look to build something here. No air miles for non-competitive games.

Our first signing and it was much needed in a goalkeeper. Dickson looks like a major upgrade in goal, so its good work by the chairman to bring this guy in.

First game of the season against Tailevu North and a good solid 2-0 win is what we get.

 

PS: Unsure why the graphics are messing up on these, might be related to the FIji db maybe.

We batter Bua at home after being 3-2 down at half time, we come back like possessed creatures and win the game 9-3 with Deyama getting 4.

We were outplayed and lost our heads as we lose to a Prasad penalty, as Nadroga take the spoils and top spot in the division.

We manage to get the win despite another sending off

We remain in second as Nadroga remain perfect this season, this may come down to the return game at their ground.

Another win but we keep making things harder for ourselves by picking up these red cards. As for the game we were dominant, and really the scoreline doesn't flatter us at all.

A pretty bad draw in the context of the league, no sending offs but still showing a lack of discipline with the number of yellows.

We go top but really only in name only as Nadroga still have a game in hand.

We blow any chance at the league with another loss, and another sending off. it's getting a little bit silly really.

A good final day performance as we draw against promotion playoff hopeful Nadroga. Not sure what the headline is talking about, nothing changed to my knowledge.

So now time to work out how many air miles we have.

4 wins this season.

Our calculation for each win is the following

1 x 1.37 x 1 x 3.75 = 5.05 miles per win

The 3.75 is for the short season of 8 games.

So for the 4 wins we have 20.2 miles, this season. Not going to get us very far.

Not even out of the north island, so it's going to be a very long road to even move within Fiji.

I expected this game to be the toughest of the year, we led, but couldn't hold on, we were well dominated all game. We haven't started well this season.

1 point from two games is not very good, we need to improve quickly.

We are simply not clinical enough to take our opportunities and this season we are paying for it heavily as we drop more points late on.

Another win this season, which have been rare. This time we were in control as we swept the opposition aside.

We have let so many leads slip this year and we do it again against Navua, this is turning into a nightmare season. Very poor.
