  2. Fantastic job, mate, and you didn't spill a drop Seeing people giving these challenges a go motivates me to create more. And I will at some point. Congrats!

    Looks great! Goodluck

    The way I usually go about these "big transfers" is if it occurs 4-5 seasons into my career I refuse them as my squad is near perfect by then and it's really hard to find decent squad additions for under 50M. If it happens in my first season and my squad is undergoing a rebuild, I'd sell the guy and buy 3-5 players in his place.
  5. Resurrected: Farm to Treble

    You're going through a bit of a rough time at the moment trying to get the best formation for your unhappy lads but still a decent league position. Hope your hard work starts to pay off soon. Hang in there!
  6. Man, I do remember reading this challenge but ages ago. Nothing like it so it'll be fun to follow. And even more so to see you struggle big time and ultimately fail Goodluck!
  7. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    You're right, he did move into midfield at times but only for tactical reasons later in the game depending on the opponent. He pretty much started every game as a defender so it makes sense Ashez made it a challenge rule. Role selection is my choice but that should be obvious. Thanks mate!
  8. Hi guys, It's time for a new career. I haven't done anything like this before so I have absolutely no clue how I'm going to make it, and if at all. For all I know I could fail miserably but it's something that's been on my mind for a long time and now the time has finally come to give it my best shot. Enough scoring with forwards. Enough assisting with midfielders. It's time for a Defender to shine and be the hero in one of my careers. The idea is simple, the rest nothing but. It's a challenge created by our friend @Ashez Thanks mate, see full details in the spoiler: There you have it. I'm going to attempt scoring 250+ goals with a defender whilst playing him as a Center Back only!! I feel this could be a looong career but I'll be delighted if I even come anywhere near Ronald Koeman's amazing record of 253 goals. I hope with your help, support and encouragement I manage to do the impossible and help the chosen player to become one of the highest, if not the highest goal-scoring defender of all time. Country: Portugal League: Primeira Liga Club: S.L. Benfica Defender: Riechedly Bazoer Player Role: Ball Playing Defender Formation: ? Engine: OME Progress Wish me luck!
  9. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Post up Can't do 1Ks back-to-back lol Maybe it's one of those saves that's more fun to play than to follow but honestly I got my hands full trying to get a defender to score so I'm glad there's no side challenge to distract me. It's 99% the same in my case. 2 CDs stay back on half line and 2 FBs stay between half line and box. And 1CD, Bazoer, goes into the box. Every time. No idea how the EME reacts but will test eventually. Thanks mate! I'll try to keep it interesting by posting different types of updates every season focusing on a slightly different aspect of the challenge/career. Cheers guys!
  10. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Thanks mate. Would love to get my hands on the national team next season and play the exact same style.
  11. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Hard to say. I think Bazoer scored 3 or 4 penalties this season and on the EME it's generally been 10. But I have no idea if this formation works on the EME at all, but I'd try creating a 5-def formation again and see which one of those 3 CDs go forward with corners Still, 20 goals with a defender is really really pushing the limits I think. Maybe I can on an odd season but on a consistent basis..doubt it. If I get the Holland job then definitely yes. Thanks for the comment.
  12. Mourinho's sacking will come eventually. Especially if he keeps playing his strikers as defenders Keep up the good work!
  13. Blue Moon Rising

    Sad to see PSV lose but it got you to the final in Amsterdam, the wonderful city of Amsterdam. You did extremely well getting their in the first place but just came short. Next season come back better and stronger. KIU!!
  14. Jesus, 1000 Goals?

    Doing great mate! It's a marathon so just make sure he keeps banging in the goals every season. 50+ is good. 60+ is great. 70+ is worldclass
  15. 89 Sweet!!! Now get him to score consistently and you have nothing to worry about. You're doing awesome! Dybala is a maniac!
  16. Oh man all this reading makes me really thirsty. I'll have a glass of wine right now KIU mate.
  17. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Season 4 The Squad Pretty much the same as last season except everyone's got a year older. Still a young-ish average age this squad tho and no outside additions needed in the seasons to come. Just the 2-3 talents that earn a promotion at the start of every season. Ze Gomes is one of them and doing very well everytime he comes on as a sub and it won't take long before he'll offload Jimenez as our main striker. His time will come, in 2 seasons perhaps, and Jimenez will then spend his "retirement" season as a sub. The Transfers Again no transfers undertaken this season. We simply don't need any additions from the transfer market. This club has great youth and training facilities and the youngsters who join the team do really well and deserve to stay on. No need for anyone to interfere with my youngsters development so I'll just keep saving the money until I really need reinforcements. Closing in on 500M but won't need to splash the cash until another 5 or so seasons from now. The Formation Same one. Don't fix what ain't broken. The 5-2-2-1 is working like a charm. We only recorded 1 loss this season, well..a loss on penalties, so we're good. And Bazoer scored his goals so we're definitely not going to swap formation anytime soon. The Holland Job Still waiting for this one. Holland's doing well but from the previous saves the manager (Jan Jansen) generally retires pretty soon and he's 58 already so I'm hoping he quits after the 2020 Euros so I can start scoring some ITN goals with Bazoer. Practice Makes Perfect Every season I seek for minor improvements to increase Bazoer's chances of making the 250+ goals. In the first season I created the formation that suits him best as a Ball Playing Defender. In the second season I tweaked his position to #6 to get him forward more often and score more goals. In the third season I gave him better teammates and the best captain for the team. And this season, in season 4, I'll try to up the attributes that make him a better goal-scorer by tweaking his individual training regime. He's showing great greens already! Bazoer at the start of his career Good attributes as a starter with 1 green and many good-looking blues. Lots of potential. Bazoer's Training Regime (1st half of season) Bazoer is a Defender first! So I had to make sure he got his needed defensive attributes up first, such as tackling, positioning, aerial etc. Also, since the most crucial part of this challenge is to have him score goals it's equally important to up his attacking attributes, such as aerial (again) at corners with strength and of course shooting. Bazoer's Training Regime (2nd half of season) Once his defensive attributes looked pretty enough I wanted to focus on his physical attributes such as pace, stamina and strength so I switched intensive defensive to fitness. It was always a risk causing him to be unhappy etc but he seemed pleased with the change and he improved nicely so all's good fortunately. I may tweak things again in season 5 depending on how his greens look. Bazoer in 2020 He looks impressive. I'm particularly happy to see his shooting skill up from 11 to 15. Still think his aerial isn't high enough to be deadly at corners so I'm hoping to turn that into a green as well at some point during this career. Overall, I'm delighted as he's still only 23. Worst Game Not a terrible game but it's our only loss of the season so.. And the penalties stopped being counted after 10 as the "same" names started to appear on the scoreboard but doesn't matter in the end. The fans loved the spectacle so this one was for them. Best Game Always fantastic crushing one of our rivals in their own home in front of their homefans. A 1-5 win in Estadio Dragao is great. Our biggest game is versus Sporting tho, the big Lisbon derby match, hopefully we record the same numbers in their Estadio Jose Alvalade next season. Biggest Win Small opponent but nice netting 10 goals nonetheless. Only 1 for Bazoer. I'll take it. Bazoer Brace It just a brace but I still get overjoyed everytime I see a defender score 2 goals in 1 game. Awesome stuff! More Bazoer Goals BatiGoal Best Manager Finally some recognition. Manager of the Year. My 2nd one. I couldn't agree more Bazoer Goal Tally I think 15 goals a season is pretty close to his maximum on club level. I really don't know what else I can do to score more goals with a defender. I tried pretty much everything but getting 20 will be really tough. I'll need a bit of luck with more penalties and keep improving him, his attributes, his teammates and the entire squad to suit his needs and try to reach that next milestone of 20 goals. If Bazoer manages that I'll be absolutely thrilled! Also, getting the Holland job would be a very welcome boost to up his overall goal tally. We're 4 seasons in now with 55 goals. We're well behind Koeman's record of 250+ goals, but honestly, I think that record is totally out of reach for me, but I'm not focused on that in particular. We'll try to score as many goals as we possibly can and see what number we end up with. I'm satisfied with BPD Bazoer's progress so far and can't wait to continue this very enjoyable journey in season 5. Progress Comments of any kind welcome. Thank you!
  18. 2-4-1-3 Gung-ho!

    As far as I'm concerned, any formation that isn't blatantly taken from someone else's career will do. With so many players here at the moment there's bound to be near identical formations so don't worry too much about it. Besides, a good formation is only half the work. People still need to put the right players in the right spot and tweak countless times during these 1KC careers. I see a lot of managers starting this 1000 goals career but very few are able to complete it
  19. Challenge Cup 2017

    .....yes? go on..
  20. Challenge Cup 2017 Hello fellow Vibers, and welcome to the 2017 version of VibeCommunity's Challenge Cup. This is a series of in-game challenges where members face off against each other to see who becomes the 'King' of FMM. This year's version will be brought to you by samhardy and me. If you are an FMHVibe veteran, then you will know how these work. If not, then there are 9 other glorious Challenge Cups for you all to look back on. The very first CC was hosted by samhardy and won by Ollie back in 2011. CC2 and CC4 were won by Sunny who remains to date to only person winning it twice. Scott beat this year's co-host, samhardy, in CC3 and Lewiitom claimed the Cup (CC5) early 2013. Due to unfortunate circumstances CC6 had to be canceled and what followed was a series of Cups where Ashez played both Hero and Villain. A lot of the latter and a little of the former to be exact. Devil popped Ashez's balloons in the finals in March 2014 claiming the CC7 title with the runner-up Ashez paying that favor forward annihilating Scott just a few months later, and becoming the 'King' of FMM in August of that same year. But then in 2015 Ashez failed miserably to retain his crown and was dethroned by MerlionMaple96 in the final. Let's have a look at the winners and losers of the glorious past. Do you think you have what it takes to beat every manager put in front of you and call yourself the next 'King' of FMM? Well, join and prove it! Your name could forever go into the history books of Vibe. Rules There will need to be rules to keep this madness on track so keep these in mind pls! To keep things equal all challenges last 1 season and will need to be played on Enhanced Match Engine (EME). Each challenge comes with a deadline, and each deadline comes with no extensions. No entry -> No points. Every manager must provide evidence using screenshots. As the rule above, No screenshots -> No points. No unlockables and no coaching badges. If suspicions arise, you will be asked to submit your save for inspection. No holidaying, a screenshot of manager profile after each challenge is required. No cheating and no use of any editor at all. Own tactics only. Send your results via PM with both samhardy and BatiGoal included in it. Have fun !!! After a brief discussion with my co-host we've decided that for the first round 1 challenge will be posted. The top 16 will qualify for the group stages which will see the numbers 1 and 2 of each group move on to the quarter-final stages of the tournament. Winners meet in the Semi's and the winners of those in the Grande Finale of CC10. Challenge Cup 2017 - Schedule Please leave a comment below if you want to join.

  21. 2-4-1-3 Gung-ho!

    If you want your striker to score 1000 goals you gotta make sure he's alone up there. There are exceptions to that but just to go at it the easy way playing a 1-striker formation, especially with a player of Ze Gomes' skills, is the best way to go. Alternatively playing two with one as "creator" and another, Gomes, as "scorer" works well too. Right now he's sharing the goals with the two other forwards alongside him. You could play his two fellow strikers on the flanks and drop those wingers a line or two. Or turn a forward into an extra defender. There's endless possibilities, but you need to focus on Gomes getting balls from left and right to make him score 50+ at least. Maybe read a few 1KC careers, there's a lot of useful pointers in those too. Can't help too much you gotta create your own tactics for these challenges
  22. 1k Slb Challenge

    Ze Gomes is a great pick for the 1KC but he's falling way short at the moment. He should be scoring double the amount or it'll take him 20+ seasons at this rate. I suggest finding a new formation/tactic for him or you won't come anywhere near 1000 goals. Goodluck
  23. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Thanks mate. I'm inclined to do a 1KC in Portugal after this on the OME. Or maybe a 1.5KC
  24. A Defender's Story: 250+ Goals

    Thanks mate. I'm competitive. I want to win. I want Bazoer to own this challenge and I will do everything within my powers to succeed.
