Myself and someone else talked about this some time ago, think it was magnus or Torkel..anyway, as soon as CM4 comes out, we need to set a certain challenge, and see who the first person is to achieve it! For example, winning the world club championships with Ayr United or something equally ridiculous. Whomever can do it in the least playing time is the winner, and crowned Cm4 GOD!

suggestions for the challenge can go here, and put your names forward if you are up for a pasting :D

I think its generally acccepted who is the best at CM3 (me :p) but with the new game, hell even Torkel could be crowned champion :eek:;) what with the new cheapo players, new tactics, and new..well EVERYTHING..really anyone could win!

What to say to post like that Tom?:D

First of all, I'm in, as long as we pick the right team and everything. I think we should have a lowly placed Italian team, it would be more fun when we started moving up the divisions and got to play with the big boys. I nominate my old dreamteam: Lucchese Libertas :touched::star:
Last time I checked they were in Serie C1A. Might vbe too high, an even lower side coulod be better.

Also, I think we should be aware of the fact that people might not have the same amount of time to play and stuff like that, so it should be a pretty un-official thing. Basically it's just an excellent way to learn the game. But it sounds fun kicking your ass:p

I'm with you on the first part. If someone comes back in a week and says 'I won the WCC with Lucchese' and gives a photo as proof, it might be cause they played on it 24/7. One day later, someone that has hardly played on it might do the same. Which is the better player? the second one.

We should simply take into account how many seasons it takes each of us to achieve the final goal. If it takes me 6 years, you 18 then obviously I am the better player :p;)

but I am at a disadvantage since I hate the look of CM4 and will probably quit after about 10 mins play :D lets hope Martin sent that list to them :nervous:

may the best gamer win! :fero:

btw I like the idea of an Italian club, since we all love calcio, it would be a fair league to choose. C1/A seems about right to me, no point going too far down or else it will take forever just getting up to serie A let alone staying there and winning some trophies!

we can each start our own thread detailing our progress, with hopefully some photos from the game (if my comp doesn't go wrong again)

I don't think I want to play CM4 longer than one season :down:
Aaah, you just wait and see, it'll be superb.

Anyways, you can't withdraw from the challenge. Chicken!!:D

Tom, you guys should make it the shortest playing time, ie. time as in the game. Makes a lot more sense. I dare you to do it in 2 seasons :p

the two seasons would be spent on trying to get promotion with a serie c1 club,so naturally it's impossible.

anyways,i'm in.if i can do it in 20 seasons i'll be happy:D

How about Fiorentina?
too easy, I expect their squad will be superior to others in the division, plus you will get much higher revenues from matches than other teams. We should go for an average C1/a or C1/b team IMO, but lets see what the others want to do

Nekton, I feel exactly the same way at the moment. I'm not gonna buy the game, I'll probably just copy it, hopefully I'll end up liking it but the demo is piss-poor
