UKFF FIFA 12 PS3 League: Season Two

762 posts in this topic

I've been asked about control settings before. Most settings should be set to assisted by default, but as well as tactical defending I would suggest that we all have pass power assistance turned off (as otherwise it's too easy to ping the ball about) and cross assistance at most set to semi (which it should be by default).

 

One thing I would suggest, though it's not the be all and end all, is now we're playing each other twice, the home team should send the invite where possible just to reduce the likelyhood of any cheating/accusations of cheating.

Transfer Windows

 

There will be three transfer windows during the season, this will be during:

 

- Week 3

- Week 7

- Week 10

 

The window lasts from midnight on the Monday of the week until midnight on the Sunday of the week. All deals must be confirmed via pm to stunstone by both managers and he'll announce when they're finalised. Managers obviously can plan to do deals outside of the window and discussion is allowed in the thread. Deals involving multiple players are allowed, as are deals with multiple players for one player, as long as it doesn't take you below the 18 player minimum. Also, legends can be traded, but you must still have four legends in your squad.

Free Agency Pool

 

Here are the rules regarding free agent pickups from now until the end of the window.

 

- Free agency window opens at 7pm tonight and closes when the main transfer window closes at midnight on Sunday.

 

- Players can pick up to two players per day from the list of players on the free agency list but must release a player from their squad for every free agent they claim.

 

- As with the free agency pickup, put your trade in bold in this thread to save stunstone's creaking inbox. (i.e. 'Free Agency: Player A picked up (free agent) for Player B (released)')

 

- Free agent trades become valid at midnight on the day of pickup and can be used after that (released players can still be used up until midnight), with released players joining the free agent pool at midnight as well.

 

- You can't trade players picked up from free agency in the same window (or release them again to pick up another player in the same window).

 

- You can't re-sign a player you've released in the same window.

 

- Once posted in the thread all free agent pickups/releases are final and can't be changed (a.k.a 'The Stunstone Ruling' :laugh: )

 

- Make sure to check other player's pick ups so you don't pick the same player, if this happens, repost with your new pick.

 

- I'm also adding some 'legends' to the free agent list, so legends can only be swapped for other legends (and legends can't be released to pick up normal players).

 

 

The players in the free agency pool are as follows (if you notice one of your players in it, let me know):

Well so far my 2 squads in comparison. I had Cech in Tildes draw and this time I have Villereall's Diego Lopez. I know which I'd prefer.

 

Full backs though is much more like it. Last time I had Arbeloa and Cissokho.....this time Lahm and Marcelo. Classy.

That concludes my part of the draw. I'll put full team lists on the OP soon. TapOut will be drawing four legends to complete the squads.

 

One issue to be cleared up is season length. As we've now only got 14 players, do we want to do a full season (play each other twice) or a half season (play each other once). A full season may lend more importance to the transfer windows but may be too long and lead to burnout. The short season will be quicker but the transfer windows won't be as important. How does everyone feel?

I would be up for a full season with 2 games a week so it doesnt drag and would make the transfer windows an important period. I also liked the notion in the previous thread of being able to pick a player at will from the opposing team if you managed to beat that opponent kind of like a wildcard week if you will. What a crap team I have though!!
