Here I will attempt to keep some structure and information about the league.
My goal is to create at least 4 seasons using the same teams if possible. An atmosphere where it can be as 'real' as possible to a true Connected Franchise type game. After the fourth season, we will have a tourney with the top 4 teams over those four seasons.
10 game seasons. Home and Home tie. Standard table/standings rules (3 points for win. 1 point for a draw). If teams are tied in points in the regular season table, the first tie breaker is head to head wins. If that's tied – then total goal difference. If that is tied- total goals for. If that's tied, I quit.
You MUST be dedicated and available. So if you don't think you can fulfill the obligation, please let us know ASAP.
There is no set schedule. You can play anyone that is available. All games must be complete in 30 days. I think that is more than reasonable for a 10 game season. Just make sure you get at least 2-3 games in per week and you'll be good. If everyone keeps up, we can knock the regular season out in 2-3 weeks. If you can't keep up, you'll eventually be replaced.
My goal is to get at least 4 seasons done and have a cup type tourney after 4 seasons. I'll explain this a little more at a later time.
Keeping Track of Games:
If we can get this stickied, I'm going to start a thread for every season to post scores & to arrange your games. PLEASE ONLY POST SCORES OR MAKE ARRANGEMENTS WITH YOUR OPPONENTS in that thread. There will be other threads for everything else (trash talking, etc.). This is important for me to be able to keep track of the matches.
Whoever posts the score to your tie, tag me @Leo so I know to enter it in a spread sheet (that I hope still works). THEN the other team “like” it to confirm the score(s).
Post the scores something like this: Leo 0-1 Other team
Again – this is very important for me to be able to keep track of the matches.
If a game is too laggy, let me know.
Play Off Rules:
2nd & 3rd place in the table will play a one game play-off with the 2nd place team hosting. The 1st place team in the table will host the winner of the play-off game in a one game championship match.
The home team will always get to choose the extra time format (only way I know how to give home field advantage). Use the options that EA gives (Golden goal or extra time or pens, etc).
