Premier League 2018/2019
Hi and welcome to an old forum game to have some fun during winter break.It's the second time I host this kind of tournament, the first one was at fifa 17 and it was very active and fun (https://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/290530/matts-premier-league-17-18-season-is-done/p1)
. I'll be your guide to the simulation of a new Premier League season! If you want to know details of the mechanics of this, check out the Q&A below.
I'll need 20 users to sign up for this. Every user will be assigned to a Premier League team from this season and will basically be its manager. Every single user will have to negotiate transfers with the other teams, bid for players from the auction house or manage the first 11 for the upcoming game. To help with that, every team will have a certain budget.. After 20 users will sign up, I'll assign a team using random.org for everyone and the first transfer period will start. More info of that, at a later time.Q&A
1. What's an interactive league?
I'll edit my fifa with the teams and first XIs you guys have and the proceed to simulate the games between all teams. You don't have to play any game, it's all simmed
2. How do we make transfers?
There are 2 ways. You either negotiate with other managers from here and PM me after there's a deal so i can make the changes official ( squad and budget both on the forum and on my game ) or you bid for foreign players from the auction house.
3. But if i get Leicester i won't be able to compete with City or United?
That's true. But maybe you'll pull out a 15/16 Leicester. It's not the same chance for everyone to win it.
4. Where can i see my squad?
I'll have a special post with all the squads so it'll all be easy to follow. For that to happen everyone must PM me all transfers and squad changes.
5. How will the transfer period work?
The first transfer period will last 4 days and you can do whatever you want with your budget to make your squad better. We'll also have some friendlies and a winter transfer period.
6.I want to get more money, can I quick sell some of my players?
Yes you can but you won't get much for them and you must PM me.
7. How else can i make money?
You can also make money from friendlies and the Cup tournament, but the second option is more for the winter transfer period.
8. Can i change my team?
Nope, once you receive your team you work with it to the end of the season.
9. How do we know the OVR of players?
You can get them from sofifa.com or other sites.
10.Are there wages?
No, far too complicated.
11. Are you going to manage a team?
Only if we don't have 20 managers active.
12.Is this going to have 2+ seasons?
The format of the tourney only allows one season.
13. Is there a deadline for sign ups?
Yes, we'll either get 20 users or end the sign ups when it's clear there isn't anyone new signing up.
14.I would like to manage a team with another forumer, is this allowed?
Sure it is, just say.
15. If there are already 20 users signed up, can i still join?
Yes, but you must have a signed up user as a team-mate.
16.I have a question you haven't answered yet, can I ask it?
Sure, you can post it in the thread or PM me, I don't mind.
