During this last fall, I ran a pair of interactive games in this style in which we were able to follow the careers of fictional characters designed by us the forum members. I have decided that with the end of Merte's game imminent, I will bring back this interactive game for a third and, for this year, final time so that the forum doesn't completely die out during these summer months. Those of you who have participated in the previous versions of this game already know how it works, but for those of you who don't, I have provided a small excerpt from my previous two versions of this to better explain this.
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.

You will be able to choose everything about the player except for the birth year, which will be 2000 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.

    Good to see that there are already multiple participants signed up within just the first day, both from people who weren't involved in the first couple of these. :)

    @b4usiddhu2 You have five preferred moves listed when I have a set maximum of three for the player to begin with. Can you narrow it down to three please? :)

    Great to see five signups already!

    I've decided that Monday the 18th will be the last day for signups to allow for people who don't have much time during the week to create their player to do so, and I look forward to seeing who else signs up before then. As in the first version of this interactive game, I have decided that I will also be participating, and I will submit my signup form later today. :)

    I create all the players based on the information provided in the templates and randomly generate a current ability for the players between 105 and 115 (in FIFA's rating system that's mid to high 60's) and give every player a potential of -10, which has the game give them a potential between 170 and 200 (high 80's to 99 in FIFA) which can slightly fluctuate based on performance level and training facilities, among other things.

    Once I've created all the players, I insert that database into Football Manager 16, an extremely in-depth football simulation game that can run just about every league in the world simultaneously, and simulate without interference from myself, providing daily updates on the players' careers that span about a third of a calendar year per update until every player has retired.

    Tldr; Essentially what @Greenman019 said :p

    Yep, doing it on FM16 like the other ones. He wasn't part of the forums back then though, if I remember correctly, so that's why he didn't know. :)

    I was not familiar with Football Manager. I came on this forum last January. Should be a fun thread, and hopefully my buddy "Dugger" has a good career. :)

    @DaBeastModeTey Unfortunately you can't be a CF as that is not a position that exists in FM16, so you have to change that position. Other that than, it looks good though. :)

    Sorry, I'm gonna have to say no to that, it would take too much time for me to do if everyone had two players.
