FM-Base World Cup

Hey guys, I think this is one of the coolest ideas I've had in a long time. Most of you may know me as the great idea guy that always fizzles out (i.e. Zidane's XI, APL, and Buckingham FC). But, I think I finally found the idea that I can rely on to complete. Unsurprisingly, this is probably the most complicated project yet. But, the great part is that it relies on you, and so I'm motivated to complete this and possibly make this a yearly tradition. My project is called the FM-Base World Cup. I drew inspiration from the FM-Base Ashes and Knockout Cup. Basically, this will hopefully become the premier versus tournament on the forum here. I hope you guys register, and let me know if you have any questions!

Format:
This tournament is like any group stage+knockout tournament. There will be one leg in each group and knockout stage fixture, like the real world cup. Depending on interest, this competition will have between 16-32 members (That's right!) ((EDIT: Every edition will have 16 members from now on!). Games will be played in versus mode, and I will announce fixtures (as well as the draw etc. following registration and team selection). The format for the competition will be 4 groups of 4 teams, with each team playing the other teams in their groups once. Then, the top two teams from the groups will be pooled into one big table, and the higher seeded teams play the lower seeded ones in the quarter finals (for example of this competition mode, see the Heineken Cup). Now, to register yourself and make your team, you must fill out the form below. You may be wondering, how will I pick my squad? Well, the answer to that is a draft. The order you are in the draft will be based on a randomly generated order, and the draft will work in a snake system, with the team with the last pick getting the first pick in the next round. You can literally pick whichever player is available, and the way to pick is that I will send you a PM saying that it's your pick and when you respond you get that pick and I post the pick on this thread (there are 10 rounds, round 1 having one player picked, rounds 2-6 having 2 players picked, and rounds 7-10 having 3 players picked. IF a player misses a round i.e. they don't pick in the 12 hours allotted to them, they can reclaim that/those pick(s) at any point, however they will not have the opportunity to choose from the players that were available at the time of their pick but now are not). NOTE: I intend for this game to last until the release of FM16, so please sign up ONLY if you know you will be committed for this time period and will take the game seriously. I anticipate the signup period to take up a few days, then the draft to take another week and a half, and then the tournament to begin (groups will be assigned after the first round of the draft/fixtures will be assigned the day after the draft and the day before group play/trading will occur the day after the draft and the day before group play). This really will be a test to see who the best FM player on this site is. This is why I invite every type of FM-Base member, whether you are an observer, strict story poster, or alternative (BaP, Versus Gamer) story poster as well (you just have to be dedicated). Games will be played on versus mode(injuries in game will carry over one match as will red cards), and you must take a screenshot of the final score and send it to me via PM (however, you must schedule the games on your time) Each round will take up a certain period of time (likely a week per round), and if you have not reported the score by then, then the score is counted as a 0-0 draw (However, if you are on vacation or something, let me know and I will see what I can do. I'm super pumped and I hope you guys are too! Below is the registration form for you and your team :). Again, if you have any questions or any suggestions on how to run this from a thread or technical standpoint, please let me know! Let's get going :), and may the best FMer win!

Good to see it starting off well! Remember, before you register, you must be dedicated. THIS WILL take a long time. Also, for team selection, you can pick whoever you want, but make sure they play whatever tactic you want haha ;)!

Yea but assuming there are 32 people in this tournament, that would be extremely difficult to coordinate.

No worries, if you have any questions I'll be here and you can let me know :) It's just creating a team and adding them to any league that you can play in, and just adding players to the team. If anybody really doesn't know how to do this, I can make the editor file for them, but please don't ask me just because you don't know how. Cheers!
