Ok guys, now that we have the forum space we can start with the process of putting the league together. We are going to take a similar format to what the XBox leagues have with these rules in place. Description and Rules - Tradition Futbol League (FIFA) Welcome to the Tradition Futbol League. This is your home for organized, competitive, SIM style FIFA. We are a multi-layered league complete with Premiership, League 1 and Club Competition. To support expansion and long-term competition, the TFL supports a promotion / relegation structure whereby clubs will compete weekly to earn their spot in the table. Being apart of the TFL is an opportunity to be apart of something special with futbol gaming, online. Therefore, work on your fitness, keep up your form... or you may just be relegated. Rules and Guidelines Standard Tradition Sports Online rules and sportsmanship guidelines are in effect. This is a cheese free zone. Those interested in hardcore, no holds barred, win at all cost FIFA game-play, then this is not the place for you. Therefore, we do not expect to see extreme custom formations, 100% aggression tactics, known glitches and/or otherwise unsportsmanlike conduct. Like content, SIM If you have specific questions and/or would like to report another member, please seek guidance via your league commissioner through use of PMs. League Structure TFL: Premier League = 12 clubs TFL: League 1 = 10 or more clubs Relegation / Promotion zone - 3 clubs League Settings XBL> Head to Head> Custom Match> Play a Friend Game Type = Unranked Half Length = 10 minutes Controls = Semi-Assisted Game Speed = Normal League Schedule The season consists of each club playing each other twice on a home-and-away basis. The TFL fixtures will be created at the beginning of each season via League Republic. Each club owner is expected to play 2 matches per week that of which will be posted weekly via code snippet from the League Republic site. These weekly fixtures are released each and every Friday which gives everyone ample time to schedule their matches, either on the weekend or for the upcoming week. Each club owner will be expected to schedule their matches with their opponent by posting in the current weekly fixture thread. As we follow a hard advance policy, each and every fixture remains open for the duration of one week. Once a fixture has expired, that thread will be locked as the next fixture is released in a new thread. Any unplayed matches will be recorded as cancelled. Clubs All TFL club selections are based on a 4.5 star and under cap. The thought is for each owner to select a club he wishes to permanently manage for the duration of his/her TFL ownership. All team rosters are based explicitly on the current EA Sports FIFA rosters available via download. In other words, manual roster are prohibited. Content As is standard in all TSO leagues, we require game summaries to accompany match results. At TSO we encourage content. This is your chance to be creative, add original user generated summaries, team specific pages, weekly league recaps, players of the week, etc. To take the lead on creating content, please see our content manager and/or league commissioner. Match Results It is the responsibility of the winning club to post the match results in the designated TFL match results thread. The match results consist of both goals and match bookings. The format to use when posting match results can be found in the OP of the TFL match results thread. There is no extra time and/or penalties in the TFL. All matches that end in a draw after full time are recorded as a draw. Cancelled Matches Should there be any unplayed matches when the weekly fixtures expire, these matches will be recorded as cancelled in order to allow TFL advancement. There will be two chances during each season to make-up these cancelled matches. The first will be during the imposed mid-season break, while the other will be at the end of the season after the final fixture has closed.-------------------------------------Please read the rules and if you have any questions or concerns about them, you can bring them up here or PM me.One thing I wanted to get from you all is what clubs to use. I want to restrict it instead of everyone using the traditional powers. My question is do we want to go with 4.5 star teams and below or 4 star teams and below?Also, I would encourage everyone to get an AIM account if you do not already as it makes communicating and scheduling much easier.I have set up a website to control the league fixtures and standings...http://traditionfutbol1.leaguerepublic.com/and will be working on a Google Doc as well to keep organization clean.If there are anymore questions or concerns about anything that I haven't touched on here please feel free to bring it up. I am hoping to ultimately get started playing by the end of the weekend.
