How do you score the games for your league?

Originally I was going to use Football Manager but I couldn't get the editor to work so I just determine the results myself based on a few different factors.

Interesting. It was this that crapped out my last league concept. I wasn't happy arbitrarily deciding which teams would be good or bad, and that bonked my enthusiasm. I've almost come up with a sim solution but its pretty goofy.

When i tried football manager i changed club names and simmed it until and real players had retired..then started, but all the generated players were generic and there was too much parity. beyond that, the editor was ehh and hard to make custom leagues.

 

so....remembering i said this very goofy....

i use high heat baseball 2003; its abandonware online and has a great editor.


I make games 3 innings long and tuneball ballpark factors to generate lower soccer-like scores. Ive simmed 30 years to test it. happy with how leagues unfold. i can do promotion/relegation by moving teams from one league to another at the end of each year, and generate an FA type cup a similar way. Because there is no ties in baseball i just assume shootout victories in game results separated by one goal. If it mattered, id determine if a 1-goal difference result was actually a shootout or not with virtual dice or something. since my concept is set in america and we hate ties/replays, this works for me with league games.

 

...yep, verry goofy...

 

hey make more updates dude, your concept kicks ass! B)

Thanks! Updates are coming! I've been very busy with school and sports leaving me tired and with little time to put much effort into this. I first have to catch up with the results and rankings first and I suppose this is a perfect week considering it's the international break. Plus I have a special historical event that coordinates with the league coming soon as well...

Alliance Day

The bond between Granon and Normania is very close. To many, they're just states within the country of Monarch Island. The two countries hold joint military practices, often have government leaders plan with each other and obviously share a soccer league. 

A special way they celebrate this connection is through Alliance Day, a day-long celebration in the border-city of Saint-Paul.

First, a parade starts at 9am, goes along the river promenade, passes the stadium and ends at the palace lawn.

The next event of the day is an international friendly between the two countries at 2pm. Thousands usually gather outside of the jam-packed stadium and watch on.

Finally, at the end of the day, a concert is held in front of the palace. Fireworks end off the night, accompanied by the Saint-Paul Orchestra as they play the Anthem of Alliance. The performance is done in front of the once British palace and stronghold where they surrendered in twice, once to the retalliating army of Granon and once to the rebellious southern Normanians, with aid from the already well established Republique de Granon.

New team tomorrow!

 

EDIT: Forgot an "L" in alliance but lets just say thats how they spell it on the island!

Le Mans

With only 2 pieces of silverware in their trophy case, excluding promotion cups, the fans of Le Mans are often used to disappointment and relegations. Over the past few years they've jumped between the first and second divisions and even dropped to the third in 1996 after a financial disaster. From that disaster though, came a couple of years where the team looked like they could compete for a top 4 spot without the use of big money. In 2001 the team was sold to a billionaire in Spain who owned a few hockey clubs throughout Europe and lower division soccer clubs throughout Africa. It looked good for Le Mans and in 2003 they won the Monarch Premiership post-season Playoffs after just qualifying at the 8 seed. But from there the team fell short to produce. Many star players were sold to larger clubs after their heroic performances and it left the owner unhappy, who sold the team in 2007. One supporter was incredibly angry at the owner and after seeing him on a flight, brawled with the 63 year-old, landing devastating blows to his face. The former owner later died from his injuries and the club further plummeted. Only recently they finally began regaining success and after a promotion in 2012, fans are hopeful.

Tomorrow I'll try and post the updated tables and results as well as top goal scorers and any new storylines!

I like Le Mans kits, they are very clean however one suggestion I have is to make the crest on the away kit either fully red or have the black half in a different shade of red as at the moment it looks kind of strange to me.

There is an outline around the logo but it's hard to see. I think making the whole thing red would work fine though. 

 

 

Le Port FC

Founded in 1941 because the city council wanted to take people's minds off the on-going war close by in Europe, Le Port started off with a mix of boys ages 16-17 who couldn't fight in the war and men who were 50 or older. A large majority of footballers at the time were fighting overseas besides those who were foreign or too young or too old. The team played at a small pitch with no seating but the team quickly became popular. In the following years after the war, a proper stadium was constructed and the team gained a couple of investors who wanted to see the club rise to prominence. In the 1960s the club was in the fourth-division and as the city itself grew with large amounts of new industry and migrants, so did Le Port FC. The team adopted the nickname, Les Toutes which pretty much translates to The All or the basically the club of all people. The club has bounced around between the top and second flights over the past few decades but they've done a good job of staying true to their nickname. The team is 50% invested by donations from fans, 25% from outside investors and owners and 25% from the city. Le Port has a huge rivalry with southern neighbors, Le Mans and away fans are often escorted by hundreds of policemen and sometimes SWAT enforcement.

 

For their 75th season, the club revealed a throwback secondary kit which resembles the first ever uniform worn by the team.

All of this is amazing, I especially like the extra bits you added. Would you have any advice for me, as I'm attempting (again) to do a fictional country league like this?

Thanks! Some advice I'd give would be to make the league more than just dots on a map and logos. Make the area have history and each city have individual things that make them unique. Also, I like to play around with what the stadiums are like and how the supporters are as well. I think the main mistake I did on my first attempt was not giving each team and city individual characteristics so eventually the crests looked all too similar and basic.

The two Nenor clubs! Both based in the capital of Normania, the streets are divided among Loyalists and Tridents!

 

Nenor City

The younger of the two, Nenor City was founded in 1913 by a group of laborers who were fed up with football in Nenor being only for the wealthy. Known as the Club of the Working People for many years, the team was bought in 1936 by a mining corporation owner who changed the name to Nenor City had had a trident placed of the crest after his surname (he was quite arrogant). Although many were angry at first, the club progressed greatly, reaching the premier division by 1947. In the 1960s Nenor City really started to take off with constant success. Between 1960 and 2012, they've won 19 titles which is enough for second most all time in only about 50 years. They have lots of cash to spend each year as they have investors from SkySports and Samsung as well as many Chinese businessmen. The supporters have always been criticized for their history being built on money but the argument of having 19 titles will surely shut many up.

Nenor United

The Loyalists are one of the oldest clubs in the league being founded in 1898. The crest takes the Nenor Crown which was used a symbol during the British days, as their main logo, as the city was loyal to Britain for many years. Usually their fans are more upper-class and wealthy, as has been throughout their history. Over the years they've only managed to win the premiership 7 times for fourth most in the league. Their most recent title came in 2010 after a 14 year drought. But they were only kings of the city for 2 years, as usually superior, City won the title in 2012. United have worked tirelessly to invest in youth instead of buying proven players like City. Their chariman has said that he wants to see United have more titles than City one day, and that will only happen with the youth. In Nenor, though, the academy recruitment is extremely difficult and the two clubs are often forced to fight over young prodigies which made the league install boundaries to their recruitment areas. United controls north of the river to the border of the greater Nenor metro area, while City is south. This further expands the stereotype of United being for the rich and City being for the working class as many high income families call the north their home. United currently are ahead of City in the table and are still possibly in the hunt for their 8th title.

AFGV crowned champions of the premiership again! It is the first time a club has won back-to-back titles since Nenor City won three consecutive in 2005, 2006 and 2007. 

The top 8 clubs will compete the 2017 NISSAN Premiership Playoffs which seeks to give glory to lower teams.

Tallon, Northam and Wanderers fans will be saddened by the relegation while Great Oak supporters will be happy with their survival in the top flight.
