Hi people, The original advertised League got deleted (as it failed to attract 6-plus managers in a 3-week period)... so here is detail for my next attempt, in which I've 'widened' the interest pool.
I'm trying to set up a new Xpert-Eleven 'football management' game League and I'm looking for interested footie-game players who'd like to gain entry 'on the ground floor', so to speak.
Basic entry to the game is completely free, but you can purchase 'VIP Status' quite reasonably, and which I recommend for the various 'perks' and more rounded immersive experience. When you join a 'Private League' like this, you also qualify for a free team in one of the two dozen or so 'Official Leagues' and also have the right to start-up your own 'Private League'. This portfolio is expandable as one of the 'perks' of buying 'VIP Status'.
This is a simple game in respect of basics, but has hidden depths to explore for the more committed player. And it's players prepared to commit that we're looking-for...
serious, mature, dogged even, certainly not fly-by-nights who'd abandon the game on their first serious reverse.
Anyway, you become the manager of a team in a division initially planned to hold 10-14 teams. That's 18-26 league matches, either twice per week -or-
just once a week, allowing knock-out cup matches instead.
You're involved in players' skill, form, development, even character to some extent. For each match, you pick your team from a squad that you've shaped yourself, with transfers and developing youth prospects. You also select tactics for each game, based on 'spy reports' you commission on your opponents.
Naturally, all this requires finances, so accordingly you deal with the team budget, apportioning amounts to transfer kitties, youth development, player training & injury rehabilitation, awarding win bonuses, etc.
I find the whole gamut great fun and deeply fascinating, and I'm quite certain that plenty of others in this Forum would do so too... at least, those forumites whose 'inner child' is still pleading jumpers for goalposts!
a few small VIP prizes on offer for certain feats of success, kindly donated by 'interested parties' and we'll always encourage our managers to donate their own little prizes from time to time, sans obligation. I'm also developing four little 'outside-the-game' 'Reckoners' intended as prizes... to assist you in evaluating & organising (a) General Player-Strengths; (b) Captaincy-List; (c) Free-Kicker-List; &/or (d) Penalty-Taker-List. (Useful time-savers, all!).
The League I'm running is The PAN-AFRICAN ALLIANCE
and may be found here:- http://www.xperteleven.com/?lid=326327
The theme is 'African Football Clubs'
and the design is to name all of our teams for 'real live' African teams of the present or past.
There's just one further demand for entry into the League:- Every manager must
write 250-character plus PRESS REPORTS about the doings at his club at least
twice per week. These may
be cut&paste-based from notifications by X-11, but must be
comprehensively edited/adjusted to read just like they'd appear in your local weekly rag!
Any queries or questions need to be made via xpert-11, as I'm rarely in this Forum these days.
Hoping to see a number of you there soon,
Not THE Chris Brown
