    With Season 10 nearing its end, that means it'll soon be time for some off-season mini-tourneys! We went thru some ideas in the league discussion thread not long ago... but I've had a lot of beers since then and thus I've probably forgotten most of those ideas. So let's hear some ideas and see what draws some strong interest.


    Past Mini-Tourneys
    FIFA 12
    After S3 - Winter World Cup
    After S4 - Spring Training Tourney (users' TFS teams)
    After S5 - Euro 2012
    After S6 - MLS Tournament
    After S6 - 5-Star Tournament

    FIFA 13
    After S7 - Champs League Tournament
    After S8 - 3-Star Tournament
    After S9 - International Tournament

    Something unique from one specific league... such as:
    MLS-only
    EPL-only
    An obscure league only (such as Australia)

    Could also go with a free-for-all with team draft, so somebody can play as Barca, Real Madrid, etc.

    I feel like we can have a few mini-tourneys since the S11 won't start for two months. I'll let you know if I come up with any others.

    Anything were I can use Barça Sr. team would be 1st on my list. Champions League-esque

    Copa Libertadores type tourney with MLS, Liga MX, Argentina teams and Brazilian teams.

    Depending on the number an U-23 type tourney international teams.

    So basically a Champions or Libertadores type tourney!!!

    i updated the first with tourneys we've done in the past. Not to say we can't do ones similar to those, but just so you all can see what's been done most recently

    MLS sounds good as long as we pick our team. Obscure league (no England Spain France Italy Germany) and you could probably ex out any current TFS teams too for another tournament.

    Problem with MLS is only 19 teams. Will this be first come first serve?

    MTs in the past have averaged about 16-20 teams. If we have a cap (like MLS w/ 19), then yeah it'd have to be first come, first serve... and if we have more, that allows us to have reserves in case someone signs up and then disappears

    Im in no matter what we do.

    MLS is fine. Though there is a big gap between teams even in that league.
    I love the EPL idea too. Maybe give the Serie C people first pick and then best of Serie A last pick? Maybe even it out somewhat that way.

    I really wish more people here played Ultimate Team. An Ultimate Team tourney would be really fun.

    No matter what format, the team selection will likely be by a random draft.

    I like that idea.

    There also needs to be some sort of sarcasm font. Unless the Mutiny and Fusion are in the game. Then sign me up.

    Whatever the format, I think it would be cool if we used the away goals rule (aggregate scoring) in the knockout stage. It yields more strategy and no PKs, typically. Obviously the final, as with the UEFA CL, would be a single match deal.

    That would be awesome. Would kill the defensive type games, and milking of the clock hoping for PKs!!!

    As for obscure teams, it may be time for me to play with an Australian squad. Emile Heskey's Newcastle Jets or Alessandro Del Piero's Sydney FC? :)

    A 1.5 star or less would be awesome. Kill all the speed only people (figuratively)

    Probably too time consuming but a best of 3, 5, or 7 series would be pretty neat, too. Similar to the MLB or the NBA playoffs.

    Could be intriguing with cards piling up as well.

    Ha, that was me taking easy on y'all. I could've gone with Neymar. It would of been a Lebron-esque type season for me with Neymar. However I'm a Palmeiras fan, so I couldn't go through playing with Santos. It would be like using Real Madrid!

    Love the idea of a U23 Internatinal tournament. Or even U20. Would take some doing from users though.
