- 11 Bati's For Glory -

 

During this challenge I'm going to build a team of 11 Bati's (--Spoiler Alert: you may find that the word Bati is slightly overused at times--) and follow their progress until the day, if there is one, they win a piece of silverware. The hardest part of this challenge is that there's only 16 Bati's in my database, so I gotta make do with the better 11 of that select group. The even harder part is that I gotta stick with the original Bati's until the very end. No looking for better options during the transfer window, no Bati Wonderkids, no Regen Bati's, no IGE-enhanced Bati's and no Son Bati's, nuttin of that. So there's no need for any info on transfer dealings throughout the challenge, apart from a few faceless subs, as this is everything about the starting Bati's featuring in all games, their improvement, their performance and their journey as a whole. And hopefully there's a prize to show for at the end. 

First thing we did was buying the entire Bati DB. Firstly, I had no idea how many were going to accept/deny my request so I tried all 16 regardless the quality. Secondly, it's a lot easier picking the best 11 once they're all in the squad and give 'em all that thorough closer look. Besides, they're not exactly your typical Ballon d'Or contenders so these Bati's come reasonably priced anyways.

There's the group in order of position that desperately want part in this challenge. All affordable as per the club's transfer funds and for some positions, like GK and ST, I've only got a single player to choose from so we can but pray that there's enough quality there to make this challenge a success. Needless to say the 5 Bati's that didn't make the cut won't be taking credit for any future successes. No mention or appearances either other than the occasional sub role.

And as you may have seen from the screenshots, the club that reluctantly agreed to partake in this Bati madness is none other than 2nd league, 111yo, nicknamed The Babies (The Baties? close enough) or Sea Heroes (more like it),.. drumroll.. Leixões Sport Club.

Are you sure that's the right logo, Bati? Is this FMM?

All valid questions, people, but I'm not going to defend the logo, I couldn't, keep reading..

 

Meet the Bati's 

 

#1: Ricardo Bati Sta - The Goalkeeper

Screenshot_20181203-173550.thumb.png.648b5469ab4af482c9398b1ce8e5c9fc.png

Primary Attributes: Aerial Agility Handling Reflexes Decisions - I put these up to have a clearer understanding of what I'm looking for in my players/roles, and what needs to be worked on. With 4/5 attr. in blue I'm happy with my GK. Let's hope training bumps Decisions into blue as well. 

 

#2: Fabio Ado Bati - The Right Back

Screenshot_20181203-173605.thumb.png.d8eb18d9ed8b7624d5c0b6b3c5c8805e.png

Primary Attributes: Dribbling Tackling Positioning Stamina - Bati #2 and #4 have actually swapped position and player role a few games in as both are able to cover them. But I feel #2 makes a better CD and #4 a better DR. Since squad no. are locked I'll have to change it back next season. 

 

#3: Sergiosa Bati No - The Left Back

Screenshot_20181203-173611.thumb.png.058b9bf92e5db9a9884e0e8475ebd063.png

Primary Attributes: Dribbling Tackling Positioning Stamina - I'm not too worried about a lower Dribbling to be honest as I'm not going to use this Bati as a WB anyway, alternatively a CD. As long as the other three remain in the blue I'm happy. Stamina is even almost green and that would really help the team. 

 

#4: Sidojom Bati - The Central Defender

Screenshot_20181203-173618.thumb.png.3b5979957b409b9bb0d44626f5892b73.png

Primary Attributes: Aerial Tackling Decisions Positioning Strength - so this Bati has actually become our DR since. He could possibly feature as WB if needed. Tho I'm not even looking at any secondary attributes at this point because the lower quality of players I'm working with. 

 

#5: Pasqualedisa Bati No - The Central Defender

Screenshot_20181203-173624.thumb.png.e805d391f6c1048ba7de69d51be4a5eb.png

Primary Attributes: Aerial Tackling Decisions Positioning Strength - I really like the physicals on this Bati but I'm hoping he manages to bump that all important Tackling and Decisions into blue. At 21 years of age one would expect so with the right mix of training and game time. 

 

#6: Bati Stamendy - The Anchor Man

Screenshot_20181203-173630.thumb.png.6342bde0ef88891dc178dc6360da66f6.png

Primary Attributes: Tackling Decisions Positioning Strength - toughest decision I had to make. One could argue he'd make a better CD but I don't want to field a 5 Bati defence. So due to the Bati's we already have this one must play in his 2nd best position to accommodate our formation. 

 

#7: Jean Bati Sta - The Winger

Screenshot_20181203-173643.thumb.png.14fd6c4a26d97d32ffbe7875f0ce703d.png

Primary Attributes: Dribbling Crossing Movement Pace - nice strong blue's on my Winger Bati which pleases me. Tho on the other hand there's not much else and too much yellow all over the place is a slight worry. If his Movement improves you'll hear no complaints from this manager. 

 

#8: Diego Bati Sta - The Central Midfielder

Screenshot_20181203-173650.thumb.png.5b86217e9e216905957727ccf77057f6.png

Primary Attributes: Passing Technique Decisions Teamwork - PA-wise Diego Bati is one of my better players so I've placed higher expectations on this lad. He doesn't know it yet tho. That passing is still too low for my liking, and if Creativity jumps up I'll turn him into an AP. For now he remains a CM. 

 

#9: Davidesa Bati Ni - The Poacher

Screenshot_20181203-173657.thumb.png.67b29360c2def992e0549c1acd358453.png

Primary Attributes: Shooting Decisions Movement Pace - absolute garbage mental attributes on this Bati ffs and that's a massive worry for a main Striker. But he's my only out-and-out ST so we gotta go with him. But if Decisions and Movement among others don't turn blue we're in deep deep trouble. 

 

#10: Antoine Bati Sse - The Advanced Playmaker

Screenshot_20181203-173706.thumb.png.dc83e7769b098503c8243ba4a82c786e.png

Primary Attributes: Passing Creativity Decisions Teamwork - probably the best looking Bati of the lot at this point. He may very well be a natural defender (got 6 of those already) but he's desperately needed in CM spot as an AP alongside our best PA Bati. These two Bati's are our top players. 

 

#11: Simão Bati Sta - The Inside Forward

Screenshot_20181203-173714.thumb.png.7ac9b707e93e9592fd1f044c2f7a0715.png

Primary Attributes: Dribbling Shooting Decisions Movement - not exactly ending our Bati evaluation on a high are we.. arguably the worst of our 11. His biggest weak is having no left foot. Literally. So it's of no use playing him as a Winger. He's our IF to add to our attacking arsenal but that Shooting!! 

 

 

The Bati Stars viewed in.. FMM stars

Screenshot_20181204-101325.thumb.png.874a1fb61223836ce408808f6b8aef52.png

See here the stars in stars. Not the absolute worst to be totally honest but no Wonderkids either. Altho... altho.. Diego Bati is looking quite nice. We're actually fielding a nice CM triangle in Bati, Bati and Bati. That's the core of my Bati Team and what I'll need to build the team around..with no transfers! GK's ok-ish at best, but defence is worrisome. 4 Bati's with a combined 10 stars out of 20 equals concede a shitload. Even worse is flanks up front sporting a total of 3.5/10 stars, and that's PA. CA is 2.5/10. Yikes!! If I really want to sound depressing I'll say that there's a combined 187 attributes among my 11 Bati's and only 3 are green, one of which is Aggression, gulp.. But what choice do we have? The Bati's gotta play, right, so play the Bati's will. Happy enough to have a pretty OK striker in Davidesa Bati Ni who hopefully grows to become a hardcore menace to our Bati-fearing opponents.

 

The 4-5-1 Formation a.k.a. The Bati

Screenshot_20181203-151501.thumb.png.d9a83fc551ecbd6ebdfa9ec265c3d9b6.png

It was tricky getting a formation that I was satisfied with because I was very limited in my choices. I was thin on Bati's up front so it was self-explanatory-ish to go with two forward flank players and a striker. The struggle was midfield and defence but in the end I settled with what you see up here; 4-5-1. Also, 4 Bati's are playing in their accomplished role rather than their natural one, so they've been undergoing the proper training to get that more desirable light green position color. Those details could make the difference in the end you see. The initial roles displayed are just that tho as the end product is yet to be determined. But as a start having played through the pre-season friendlies this looks the most promising for this Bati Team for now. But how will this entire new team cope Vs their 2nd div opponents and in the Cup. The truth lies in the future...

 

Please keep those expectations low as we enter the competition proper and wish this Bati Dream Team some Vibe luck. Thanks for reading and see you at the first half season update.

I bet you I can beat your score using your exact same players. You're just acting as though it'll be tough... It's the Portuguese 2nd league, have some self-respect, you hussy.

The Dutch don't need me for that. Just look at their Frankenstein-kroketten.

But in all seriousness, I like the OP :D  I hope your Bati gets spanked here and there, but I honestly don't foresee any problems.

There's not going to be any updates here, people, the update was written but I've decided to end this career. The interest seemed to be there with a promising large majority vote in the poll but lots of views and a scarcity of comments makes it simply not worth my time. 

Real life is a lot of 'take take' and no 'give' and this community sorry to say has become no different. Yes, I've said it. I miss the old Vibe where career posters were brave enough to venture outside their own career bubble to encourage others with theirs. Perhaps that's the strong disconnect I have felt lately with this new generation of FMM players. The truth is that very few careers interest me with the same PSGs, the same Pellegri's and the same Fabio Silva's, zero pts for originality but I feel it's important to drop a few encouraging words anyway to nurture these career posters and simply hope the next one's better. That's one of the main reasons you'll find at least one comment of mine in your career. But the FMM player of today is a lot more self-centered in that aspect and that I think is a shame for a great place like Vibe. 

I've been nothing but honest with my words today, as always, and if you feel offended by anything I've said that problem is entirely yours. Chew on that while this FMM veteran closes the door behind him. Take care everyone.

Whilst I am guilty of pretty much all of this I have to say that I love reading through careers that are unusual like this. At this stage I have got my Pellegri PSG career going but that is more for myself to prove that I can complete a 1k. I look forward to trying unusual challenges this year and I already have a few lined up.

Sad to see you not continue with this maybe I better start leaving more comments on the posts I read.

FMM vibe is a community but seems at the moment to be a popularity contest and full of people wanting to know your tactics instead of enjoying the posts themselves.

This is what I’ve been banging on about solid for the last year! It’s absolutely depressing to say the least. You take so much time to write a guide or a career update and it’s all for nothing the majority of the time. No thanks, no well done, no nothing. Shame about this BG as it had some promise 🙁

although I have followed this path so far I feel for some including me these sorts of players and leagues are the easiest to get your first 1k under the belt although I can see it becoming repetitive and I can see it becoming harder and harder to comment on such careers. In my honest opinion the best careers to follow are the ones that are unique just like these one for example even for 1ks using a player no one expects, my favorite career to follow last year was a 1k on Chuba Akpom.

Hell my first 1k was with a defender last year! 😂 a 1k doesn’t have to be the top top wonderkids year in year out, the database is full, and I mean FULL of talent just waiting to be unearthed.

of course it is but what I am meaning is many see it as the easiest, hell I tried with Quitongo and if i didn't accidentally reset my (excuses😃) I think i would have had it this year I thought I am just going to go with the easiest way bang out a 1k and move onto other challenges. I remember reading one of a defender, it might have actually been yours did you use Ajer?

I totally get that, it’s the ones that are using Pellegri/Silva etc. and banging in a 150+ Goals a season that bugs me! 😂

Yeah that was me with Ajer, that was my first ever 1k

I 100% agree with you which also I admit makes me a hypocrite as I never got round to commenting on this, I also don’t comment on every career I read and even the careers I follow I can be a bit sporadic in my comments. This despite the fact that I know just how far a comment can go to help with motivation when posting anything.

I have no problem with 1k’s and it is up to the individual what career they want to play and post on here. I did a 1k in last years game for the same reason as others have said which was to say I have done it, a Vibe right of passage I guess and it seemed to be a career people enjoyed but that wasn’t because of the 1k but instead the more unique Goal a Minute challenge with a midfielder. The problem does come when there are careers posted with similar clubs and often the same player despite there being loads of potential 1k strikers in the game but again that is people’s personal choice as they used there own money for the game so they can play as they want.

What surprises me is the number of people that read posts but don’t comment ever. It takes a minute to say well done or commiserations to someone but a comment means a lot as it shows you felt that particular career or post was worth taking the time to comment on. In the most part Vibe is a friendly community if people are constructive in there comments so it would be great to see more people comment on all careers or posts.

Having just caught up on this thread I’m gutted to see it start and finish so quickly. I was genuinely interested in seeing how it went as it was something different. 🙁 

What I would say on the career front is that I do agree with @BenDTner in that if it’s your first 1kc then you are bound to use the safe players and teams. Hell I used PSG for my Strikerless but that’s because I needed all the help I could get. What does do my head in is the career replicas, such as the recent copy of @Nucleus‘s Silva one.

Such a shame but I know where you're coming from, Vibe has always had issues encouraging viewers to comment and of late it does appear shit again tbf. Lurkers just don't understand the power a simple comment can have on content providers, I'm however trying to focus on views just to keep myself motivated. I unfortunately missed this completely and when I spotted it today my excitement of a Bati career soon vanished lol. 

I'll admit I've dropped off the support wagon of late and that's simply because nothing's gripping me, people can post as they wish but not everything will be for everyone lol. I'm just tired of the 1kc in general tbh and similar clubs and players have worn me out, I agree with Foxy's points and I know why they're popular but I jump in and out now instead of following religiously lol.

One thing I would add is if you have played the save or season and done the update you might as well post @BatiGoal because you have already put the effort in and it is likely that the actual season you have played will spark more comments than the OP would.

Simply gutted! But totally understand.

Only just realised this had been posted but in saying that i have not been around the site much the last few days.

Read the OP and i was soo looking forward to it. 1kc are great infact i love them but i do think moving from the normal teams and players is what make things more exciting.

Im positive @BatiGoal would of made this a great career to follow too.

Disappointed about this Balti, but I understand, I was looking forward to your career, I don't comment every new post for a career but do try and comment semi regularly. I don't post a career myself as I don't find enough time to play the game much, so far in 19 I'm only on my 2nd season, despite having the game since launch day.

100% right @Foxy and that's why more and more people are either giving up or simply not bothering as Bati has done here, my take is to many people looking JUST for a better Tactic, or use for there own pleasure in a YOUTUBE link or whatever these days, yes i'm an old fart, but I can see so many people now getting fed up to create a Challenge/Career, have hundreds look at it, but NEVER comment, a simply Nice! I like! or even thanks! is not a massive amount of their time to type, but sadly that is the way it is now.

If I'm honest, I don't really get what all the fuss is about. If you're creating something, you're doing it because you simply like creating. Not because you want te get reactions. Sure, you do it to communicate and make people happy. But if you're not doing it firstly because you simply love doing what you do, why do it at all? What I do, I do it for myself. Views are great and reactions even better. But those reactions shouldn't be your goal.

Just my view though.

I understand what you're saying and I agree with you to a certain extent but my concern has always been about the bigger picture. I certainly don't wish to tell people what to do here and I apologize if I came across that way, but on the other hand I do strongly believe that when people are part of a community like Vibe they need to understand that a little, even just the slightest, effort is in order to keep things rolling if you understand what I mean. My motto has always been when I receive one comment I give one back in return and I've just not seen any of that at all for ages, which kinda bothered me. And not just in my threads but in others' too. Maybe I care too much, and when I dislike things I speak my mind. Not always a good characteristic to have but fcuk it's too late now 🙄 That's all I have to say really.
