    BOTW has just completely blown me away all over again and I've lost yet another evening in this amazing game! 
    I was in between games as I'm still waiting for the Starlink update before starting that so I decided to do some clean up on something with BOTW obviously being the game I picked. I still have no interest in the seeds but I cleaned up a few side quests I abandoned a year or so ago and I just couldn't turn the bloody thing off, I was just exploring knowing I had nothing worth looking for 😂. 
    I can't even put my love for this game into words, it's just special.

    A nice physical and mentally draining defeat :D, disappointed they miss out on two games though. 
    A wounded City verse a flying Spurs, 0-0 hopefully 😂
    Yeah I watched our training match instead

    Just to indicate - there will be another update to FMM19 yet, I'll indicate details when its coming up to its release. I don't see continuing to tune 19 as being detrimental to 20 as obviously one will build on the other and I want as many people as possible satisfied with our games

    I apologise for not having posted much recently but (1) I'm working on the (hopefully) final update for FMM19 and FMM20 features, (2) My girlfriend has been having health issues so I've have been spending more time in hospitals than we'd like which unfortunately gets in the way of important things like posting on forums

    Thanks everyone, I'm pleased to win it as there was loads of brilliant individual performances throughout the tournament. It was a fantastic final with another great performance from myself but also from @Foxy as we only dropped 29 points between us in our seasons.
    I think GD wasn't included to put me at a disadvantage but as soon as I saw the points system I knew I had the upper hand as when GD isn't involved it means there's a maximum points total when there usually isn't. Therefore I ended up playing for more points than Foxy by going to NI which made the difference in the end.
    I've already thanked everyone for taking part so no need to do so again, also thanks @Ashez although you're sacked for next year

    Well done to both of you for a greatly fought final.
    @samhardy you made the perfect choice there with Linfield in the end and deserved the win despite @Foxy having a phenominal season really.
    A huge well done to all competitors for making this years VPL the best yet but the biggest thanks go to @Ashez , @Nucleus and @samhardy for being fantastic hosts.

    Congratulations @samhardy, really well played. Commiserations @Foxy, had he chosen any other team/league I’m sure I’d be congratulating you! That’s a tough challenge that, one that in slightly accustomed to and you both passed it with flying colours!
    No need to thank me for my contribution as there quite simply wasn’t any 😛
    Nice write up @Ashez and a couple of cracking challenges!

    Enjoyed that @Ashez and I like how you kept them waiting for a couple of days before the reveal.
    Well done @samhardy, a great campaign you’ve had and if I recall correctly you were quite unlucky in the league faze and it was touch and go whether you’d go through. My first save on this years game was a save in NI and I can remember all those cups so was good thinking that.
    Unlucky @Foxy, feel like the team choice looks to have made the difference but still a cracking season with West Ham that is.
    I already thanked everyone when I went out so won’t do again but a great tournament it’s been. Really enjoyed taking part and following.😀

    Firstly thanks to @samhardy and @Ashez for doing the hosting honours and also @Nucleus for helping out as well. This has been an excellent event with some great challenges and some frustrating ones as well but that’s all part of the fun.
    As for the result of the final I knew the draws would cost me big style and of course my league choice was a risk as well but I thought I would have a better chance of scoring a decent total with West Ham.
    @samhardy you have earned this mate.

    The Vibe Premier League Final
    Today will be the final update in this historic thread as it's my duty......no my privilege to announce who won this year's event. We've seen some tremendous saves over the last few weeks and some heart breaking failures but all those roads led to this final encounter as @Foxy takes on @samhardy. 

    In this final challenge our competitors were tasked with picking a side of their choosing as long as they didn't have continental football, after that they were forced to remove their highest and worst rated player from the squad each month while only receiving one player in return. On paper I think we all thought this looked a brutal sounding challenge but it's now time to see how it turned out in practice. 
    The Final
    Samhardy Vs Foxy
    Averaging Out + Selling Them Fastly
    The Clubs Chosen 
    Samhardy - Linfield - Northern Ireland
    Foxy - West Ham United  - England 
    Our finalists had the pick of Europe but Foxy stayed with what he knows by heading to London while Samhardy took a massive risk heading to Linfield. We have two very different approaches here with Sam going to a weaker league where he might struggle for signings while Foxy has decided on one of the toughest leagues available knowing he'll have the pull of the Premier League. Simply fascinating stuff this! 
    Point System Reminder
    The points for this final are the competitors league points combined with one point per cup round passed. 
    The League
    Defeats
    Samhardy - 1
    Foxy - 0
    Foxy makes the perfect start as we see our first shock of the night with Foxy pulling off an undefeated league season! Sam's side only losing once is also impressive but first blood goes to the Fox! 
    Draws
    Samhardy - 2
    Foxy - 9 
    Just like that however Sam lands a counter as while undefeated seasons are good they only really make a difference if you win and unfortunately Foxy dropped 18 points due to draws. It's still two extremely impressive campaigns though! 
    Wins 
    Samhardy - 35
    Foxy - 29 
    Current Scores
    Samhardy - 107
    Foxy - 96
    Despite the different approaches the final is still reasonably tight as Samhardy holds an 11 point lead as we head into the final stage of this challenge. 
    The Cup Stage 
    Foxy
    League Cup - Winner - 6 Points
    FA Cup - Runner Up - 5 Points 
    Wow...Wow...Wow! Foxy levels things up at 107 a piece! All he needs is Sam to flop in his cups and we'll have a second leg!!

    Unfortunately for Foxy this is where his journey ends as Samhardy pulled off an absolute blinder here by picking Linfield! Not only did he have a weaker league but he also found himself competing in not 1, not 2 but 5 domestic cups! Foxy might of had a chance of Sam flopping in one or two cups but in 5 the odds were in the Black Cats favour as he collected 23 more points. 
    Final Scores 
    Samhardy - 130
    Foxy - 107 
    Two bravely fought challengers but @samhardy is your Champion!! Congratulations!!

    Foxy put up one hell of a fight but I think Sam's club choice was the defining moment in this challenge, if Foxy also considered the idea or if Sam ended up in a bigger league I think this would have been a real nail bitter! I heard the different approaches early on and in truth I was worried for Foxy but he absolutely smashed it, this time however Sam out thought him winning the challenge in the planning but also on the field, I'm so impressed with them both. 
    Finally I'd like to thank @samhardy for running most of this event, @Nucleus for being my right hand man, @Foxy for his fabulous graphics and finally every member that took part or viewed these adventures. You are why these events take place!

    Ashez got a reaction from Dar J in What would you like to see in FMM20?   
    1. Detailed stats in match and day to day, I want the information to make informed decisions and it'll be an excellent way to give players an identity. it'll allow us to see how different players perform in each role and find those not pulling their weight. Error stats, running stats, conversion stats, save % and so on would add so much depth to the game and bring it back to it's text based routes. 
    2. Set Pieces 
    3. New roles - Ideally a way to edit how the roles play individually
    4. Bug fixes!!! 
    5. More in-depth settings
    6. Greece/Ukraine and Brazil back would be quality.....Especially Brazil! 
    7. No gimmicks! 
    8. Detailed ITN management
    9. DLC challenges monthly. 
     
    Thinks I don't want 
    1. Gimmicks
    2. Team talks/media/other dating sim elements
    3. Bugs
    4. Realism.....Or anything that hinders the fun 😛. 
    5. Sound effects 😂
    Tbh I just want more depth to the tactics/statistics that imo should be the game and where the focus is, I'm worn down and fed up of gimmicks, Buzz words and stuff that takes away from what the game should be.

    A lot is trail and error but a few pointers of things I do.
    Everything needs to be about the striker. That means the team is working to give him the ball and as little as possible not playing for themselves. Think about player roles and what they are going to do when they get the ball will they look for a pass or will they go for a shot themselves. What sort of striker is he? Is he quick and a good finisher, is he big and strong and will thrive on crosses, even better will he do a bit of everything. Set your team up to play to the strengths of the striker that you plan to use and pick a role to suit as well. Buy the best and most suitable players that you can for your team to complement your striker. Be paitient if you striker is young and follow the Rule of Bati which states that all goals before he turns 20 are a bonus to his total. Once your striker turns 20+ that is when it is time to try and hit the big numbers. I know these are general tips and nothing specific but I don’t want to give all the answers because trial and error and working it out for yourself is all part of the process and the fun imo.

    The Vibe Premier League Final

    Wrestlemania may have been this past weekend but the real showcase of the immortals will be taking place right here on Vibe! After a brutal qualification process we find ourselves with @samhardy and @Foxy battling it out for the trophy and the bragging rights only winning a Vibe event can grant you. Across this very tournament and others in a similar vein like the Challenge Cup we've seen members establish themselves as heroes in the eyes of many, and I can guarantee you the winner of this round will deserve such praise. I took my foot off the difficulty peddle in the semi final which saw these two experienced heads breeze into the final but it's now time to put the peddle firmly to the metal! 
    The Challenge Reveal
    I knew the difficulty needed to match the calibre of player in the final so I reached into the darkest corners of the dungeon....I mean Vibe and took inspiration from two of the hardest challenges I've personally played. This is a final after all and I wanted this challenge to test our finalists decision making, creativity, squad management, financial management and above all else their desire to win! 
    Remember "The No Transfer Window Unlockable" must be active. 
    Part 1 - Picking The Club 
    The first element of this challenge is basically up to our competitors as they can pick any European top division club they like, as long as they aren't involved in Champions League or Europa League football (including qualifiers) or have a full reserve team. In other words the choice is yours as long as you pick a side who is only fighting on the domestic front with space in the reserves. 
    Part 2 - The Transfer Window 
    The summer transfer window is once again completely in the hands of our finalists as they have free reign to do as they please, the only condition however is no loan signings are allowed within the squad, so anyone already on loan at your selected club must be sent back to his parent club while you can't make any loan signings. Otherwise you can buy, sell, trade and do as you like but your squad must be ready by the start of August, after this date no normal transfers are allowed and you'll be making no normal signings in January. Finally this is a first team squad only challenge so no filling of the reserves. 
    Part 3 - Once Every Month Ends 
    Once the month ends you'll need to sort your playing staff by their Average Rating, upon doing this you'll have two tasks to undertake. 
    1. Your highest rated player must be demoted and sold asap. You will be getting no replacement for this player. 
    2. You lowest rated player to actually feature and have a rating will be demoted and sold. However with this player you will be able to buy a direct replacement with the catch that he can only cost 10% of the price you sell him for. So if your worst performer sells for £10m you can sign his replacement for £1m (no loan signings or trades). That's not all however as you have one week to handle this situation so by the 7th you'll need the replacement tied down, if you're unable to achieve this in the time frame a free agent can be signed with direct replacements being the priority (if the demoted player is later sold void his fee). The player in question can be offered to clubs before the 1st of each month but only after the last match of the previous month. 
    If the average rating is a tie it's up to the competitor to decide which player leaves. For part two if the player in question is injured and unable to pass a medical in the required time frame I'll allow the next lowest rated player to take his place. 
    This challenge will see 2 players leave every month for 10 months with 1 player coming in, this means 20 players will be leaving with 10 coming in so your squad building and management skills will need to be on point. 
    That reveals my Selling Them Fastly and Averaging Out Challenge! Thank you @Nucleusfor helping out and testing the concept
    The Points System 
    The points system will be a basic head to head as we'll have no bonus points this round with the focus being on league points and a singular point for each cup round passed. That's correct, goal difference will not be a contributing factor this round. 
    Any questions?
