From early October until a couple weeks ago, I ran an interactive game
that involved seven people including myself in which we followed the career of an individual that we created at the beginning of the game. Overall, I feel that the game was a success, though there was one major flaw in the game. The player potentials. So, this time, the player potentials will be -10 instead of -9, meaning that they will be random potentials between 170 and 200 (on a scale that goes up to 200), instead of last year's 150-180 limit.
As I said at the beginning of the first iteration of the game:
This year, instead of managing an entire club, you will have the opportunity to create your own player. It could be based off of you, someone you wish you could be, a friend, an entirely fictional character, etc. I will be posting those players' process throughout their careers. Their career trajectory will be based entirely off of the attributes that you choose for your player. You won't be able to directly interfere with the player's career, and neither will I.
I would like to specifically invite the members of the previous version of this game , @Chris
, @Duncan ferguson
, and @R2GFifa
to join the game, either as similar players to those used in the previous ICAPC or completely different. (Or in-between. Whatever you want.) I would also like to specifically invite @ale85bg
, who showed interest in this at the end of the last one, as well as anyone else who wants to join. Or even if you don't want to join but are bored.
You will be able to choose everything about the player except for the birth year, which will be 1998 for every player, and the starting club. They will all begin their career club-less. To join, all you have to do is fill out the below template.
