Season XIV and the first season of FIFA 11 is on its way.

On Wednesday the website will be updated allowing managers to protect players if they wish (15k for 1 year, 40k for second year, 100k for third year). Please be careful of your finances. Punishments won't be handed out if you go into debt as long as you are making plans to get back into the black again.

At the moment we have divisions of 6,6,7 as we have 19 players.

FWL Creator and Competition Organiser: The Omen
I will focus on code for the website, improving the game and fixing bugs. I will also be the main competition organiser and it will be my job to set up fixtures and tournaments. I'll obviously also watch over all FWL events.

Chief Administrator: Panzer
Panzer will deal with any fair play issues and disagreements between players. He will keep an eye on deadlines, make sure people aren't going too mad on finances and keep an eye on teams going over their deadline. It will also be Panzer's job to keep the FWL rules up to date.

Data Administrators: Fozzie and Scotty
They will watch over data, adding new players and checking that ratings are correct.

Thanks for the hard work Omen, and those others that helped out, looking forward to a new season, and everyone remember I have first dibs on all Palace players!

Fozz, Hypje and Bullet deserve a big pat on the back for updating players. I'm hoping to actually allow admin players to have the same control of the site I do next season which should also give me time to keep adding bits to the code.

IMVHO, I think it would be unfair on the other newcomers to put Seaside in the Championship, however good he may have been in other tournaments, while they all start on League 1.

I used the nickname "HyPeR" playing Counter-strike back in 1999/2000.. and it basically just stuck and then evolved into hypje ('Hype-Jay'). Interesting anecdote huh? :S:

Looks like another season of non-promotion for the regulars in league one, but still looking forward to it (once I get my box back).

Seriously, I'm not saying it's easy, but something must be done about a way of placing newcomers based on ability. How about using their online level as a barometer.

Oh, and ardeo, you can only have dibs on the Palace players that aren't managed by George Burley, I'm sure you know that ;)

OMEN - I have a problem:

Suppose the following:

I currently have a 500k squad.

I spend 100k on the U21 upgrade

This upgrade makes my lowest U21 player "free"

Do I then have 10k to spend on players, so that effectively I have a budget of 510k in wages, but because of the U21 upgrade I had spent, I will only pay 500k?

Panzer
11-10-2010, 07:58 PM
I would imagine any upgrades don't take effect until the following season

When will the draft be?



Predictions

Premier League – I feel that all leagues can be wide open this season. This being because being extremely good at FIFA10 doesn’t mean that you will be the same for FIFA11.

After a dominating season last season in the Championship Hypje will have a good chance. The old gentleman Pimmy also looks strong on FIFA11 and will probably be up there at the top again. But it is the Premiership, and the players are not there for nothing, they are all well proven players and it could be anyone’s, Good luck.

Championship –I hope to do well this season but it could be hard. Shad has just come down from the premiership and is an extremely good player after the 5-0 ‘spanking’ he gave me in the Fairwell Cup group stage.
Bullet could also be one to watch after a Almost clean sweep in league 1 losing only 1 of 7 games played.

League 1 –Hard one to predict, Seaside is apparently quite a good player so he could be in contention for the league.

Would have no effect as upgrades won't be available until the season is under way and by then you would have already paid your wages.

Certain upgrades can be purchased for your team to give you 'advantages'.

You can see the potential upgrades on the team page of the website (hold your mouse over the picture for a brief description). However, I haven't had time to code them yet and they aren't first on the agenda. Expect to have them in use before the end of this season and the first star is likely to cost 100k - rising for 2 stars, 3 stars etc.

15-10-2010, 04:56 PM
Rough draft of rules: TBC

How FWL works:

Custom Teams are made up of a minimum of 16 FWL squad members. Managers may choose any available club side they wish. As a minimum squad of 18 is required in game, the 2 "unused" players should be the lowest rated players from the exsisting squad.

Each manager is given an initial income of 600k per season. This can be used towards player wages &/or club upgrades. *There is a tax free limit of 500k on wages but after this limit additional wages will be taxed at 100% i.e. 520k salary = 20k taxed at 100% = total wage bill 540k

Player wages are set according to their overall rating on the player profile page in game, as follows:
60 and less = 10k wage
each additional player rating point costs a further 2k.
eg. 61 = 12k, 62 = 14k etc.

At the end of every season a player draft takes place according to manager rank, with lowest choosing first, any new managers go last in their first season.

Protect Stage: Teams can protect a certain number of players if they have puchased the "protect" upgrade.

Steal Stage: In order of rank, lowest first, teams may steal up to two players from other clubs or sign free agents in place of any unused steal.
Individual Teams can only have a maximum of two players stolen from them.

Release Stage: Teams release unwanted players.

Free Stage: Teams sign any players not contracted to an FWL team on a set schedule.
After the initial season on FIFA 11 these will no longer be free. For subsequent seasons a small fee to sign a free agent related to their rating will be introduced (suggested at 1k per rating point).


Discipline: 2 yellows = 1 match suspension

2 yellows in one match = 1 match suspension

Straight red card = 2 match suspension

Suspensions apply to the next fixture in your fixture list in the same competition the card/s were received. If there is no fixture below the match where the suspension was received, the suspension applies to the top fixture in your fixture list.

Upgrades: are available at a cost as per the FWL website. Any upgrades purchased will take affect at the start of the following season.

General Rules:
Only default formations can be used. Managers are allowed to alter a players role but no positional changes are allowed.

Do not abuse or get involved in any arguements with opponents. Any disputes can be raised with & resolved by the Admin team. Always maintain a curteous & sporting attitude at all times & show respect to your fellow FWL members.

Do not cancel out of a game at any time, even during highlights at end of match. Disconnecting on another player may result in a fine, points deduction or even expulsion from the league.

Any team going over their finance limit could have a league point deduction & other penalties applied if they do not address the problem.

Do not play ineligible players. Any fixture where this occurs will result in a points deduction &/or a fine.

Under no circumstances at all should any player by edited. Players who edit their players will face expulsion from the league.


Things that are frowned upon, but aren't illegal: Chasing down the goalkeeper when trying to take a goal kick

Marking defenders tightly when keeper has the ball

Hacking down attackers when clean through on goal

General Behaviour
Do not watch a replay more than once.

Do not watch half time or end of match highlights if the other player has chosen to continue.

Use any celebrations sparingly & consider how you would react if reversed.

I'm not interested in any steals, I don't think. All of the players I am interested in are either new, or have been released.

Slightly concerned about having so many people pick players before Round 6 though. How does the system work? Does everyone get to sign one player, or us newbies left without any decent players to sign?

Steal round is 2 players per person (you can pick free agents if you are not stealing). Draft round would be 3 at a time per person

Can somebody just explain when and how the draft is going to work..

What time and date as in 17th? 9pm?

Once the person before you in the round has chosen there 3players? can you then choose yours?

Or do we just list our whole squad when it comes to our turns in the round?

Also if we have a player already protected does this take money of this seasons wage bill?

The Omen

17th 9pm

We will work through 2 players at a time. First the draft players then the free agents.

We will work through 2 players at a time. First the draft players then the free agents.
On here? So have I got this right: at 9, the first group will make their steals, once they are done (or x minutes after their window opens) the second group makes theirs and so on. Then free agents we have 2 every how often?

Nobody is changing rules. At the start of every new release we do an MSN draft where the whole squads are chosen.

You can PM me your players if you want and select the rest afterwards or PM me your whole squad in the order you want them picked.

Neil
17-10-2010, 10:07 AM
Oh, I thought this was akin to the stealing stage, where before we've only had two to pick.

I've PM'd you my choices anyway. Not fussed about anyone else. I'll do the rest once everyone has picked.

You can protect now but you need to pay. It's already available on the website.

Omen, I was just thinking about transfers between teams and how to encourage them. I am not sure with a standard player contract being only 1 season that we will see many transfers as players may just hold out in an attempt to make the steal at the end of the season, how about making a standard player contract 2 seasons? and create a transfer list on the site? To release a player after one 1 season you have to buy out his contract or sell him to another team? This would of course mean players are automatically protected for 1 season, but we would see less mass releases and encourage increased transfer activity.

BulletEagle
17-10-2010, 10:58 AM
I like the sound of that, maybe too late to do it this season though and start next, with all players getting a two year contract starting Season XV

But surely they are likely to be wanted to by other managers.

I set up my team by getting one class goalie, defender, midfielder and striker and then filled the rest of the with lower to mid 70s. And I chose all my players from the list on the website rather than from fifa and all those players have been used before I assume?

There seemed to be quite limited choice of free agents on the website in certain positions so I'm sure some of the better players are likely to get snapped up before my draft.

Whether or not they are on the website means very little - some very good players such as Ryan Giggs are not on the database. As you play more and more in the FWL you will probably realise there are players that are more effective, and better value for money, and because there are effectively three bands of involvement and keenness* some managers will just pick players they have heard of regardless of how good they are and some managers will only pick players who play well.

You will probably get most of your intended targets, but there will probably be some targets that you would not expect to have been picked - last season I had back-ups for all my big players (Kuyt, Podolski, Arteta, Bodmer, Lopez) but in the end the only player I had to sign that was a second choice was 70 rated right back Danny Simpson after Bryce Moon had been picked.

As the league and FWL continues to grow (not so much in amount of people playing, but in regards to complexity), maybe it is best that we consider different kinds of responsibilities for the different admin people.

For example, a data manager (checks player ratings and adds new players), a code manager (deals with bugs and coding issues on website), a competition organiser (sets up and maintains competitions and deadlines) etc.

What do people, mainly admin guys, think?

Today Peterborough have signed Martin Blaha from Sigma Olomouc. The keeper has been signed as back up to current captain and number one Van Hout. Blaha stands at 6'6 which now means the average goalkeeper height at the club is 6'8. A plan to increase the size of the changing rooms to accommodate these 2 has now been put in place.
