Dunno if this will take off or not, but a few years ago I used to run a eBaller thread on the Football Manager forums - basically you created a footballer by way of name, position, country etc and then based on how many games they played you were given points to develop the player and see how they went on. I worked ok for a while but at the time FMRTE didn't freeze the stats so the game used to revert the players stats back to normal. If thid didn't make sense don't worry, all will make sense shortly.
Soooooooooooooooooooo because I am a bit of a stats freak and its slow at work at the moment, and for a bit of fun. Anyone fancy a blast at a Footy Manager Agent type game.
My idea is as follows - you pick a club in any league that is within Footy Manager and Europe and you pick a player - then based on how many games they play they gain points, you then as their agent virtually 'sit' down with the player and discuss how they are 'getting on', so you change their stats to how you want them - with the aim to produce a stable of the best players in the world.
Why do this - well, why not, not much football on at the moment.
How will it work? - Basically say 'im in', and I want to start in xxxx country and I will screen shot you a list of clubs you can have your first player from, ill then screen shot you the youth team and you pick a player and then I sim the game 3 months, look at what your player has done, and you then make changes to the stats 'thus they get better' and develop as a player - so your starting point is very important as you dont want a player 'stuck' playing youth and reserve football.
Example - Someone picks England and North Vanarama as they are the bottom tier of football and they then pick York - so I would then show them the list of the youth team....you would then pick a player....this would be your first player in your stable of players....in this example I have picked 16 year old Luke Jones - his player card looks like:
The game is simmed for 3 months and based on the number of games they play they gain points based on the rep of the competition they played in. So if the rep of youth football was 24 and he played 6 games, he would earn 144 points to spend,
You still with me here or you fell asleep?
How to change a stat? Easy if you wanted this kids Free Kick Taking to increase then he is 3 at the moment so you would spend 4 points to get him to 4, if you want to get him to 5, then you spend 4+5, so 9 in total, so to get him to 6 it would be 4+5+6 = 15.....got it? You might want to drop his Injury Proneness, so to get him to 11 it would be 11 points etc....etc....
You can also add you your player positions.
Season 1 you get 100% of the points given, then each season after is the total divided by the number of season. So imagine season 6 and hes earnt 500 points in a 3 month period, you would have 83 points to spend.
Sooooooooooooooooooo anyone wanna have a blast? People can join at any time - the aim is to have the most expensive group of players in the whole wide wooooooorld.
The best player of all agents for the year will get a brucie bonus of being able to pick a preferred move (59 in total) ooooor you can sabotage another agents player by picking a **** move (such as Likes to beat man repeatedly or dwells on the ball).
If you never played Football Manager then the above might get you thinking eh? Even if you know Football Manager you might think eh?
Anyone wanna have a go? If so, let me know the country you wanna start in and I will crack on and start it off. European leagues only. If you need a list of these then let me know and I will stick an image on.
