Suggestions for solo play

Postby geow6 » 05 Apr 2018, 17:54

Hi all,

I was going to post this on the ISF solo section, but thought more people seem to respond on the general threads so I thought I'd leave it here.

If anyone has been following my solo play over the last few years, they'll know I've completed quite a few "projects".

So far, I have done a full Premier League season (2017/18) as well as a full European Championships and World Cup (from qualifying to finals). The World Cup finals is due to start next month, and I will have it done by June.

This has got me thinking about where I wish to venture next. I probably have a bit more solo play left in me yet, but don't really want to embark on another full English season.

Any suggestions from people on here? I've thought about a Champions League or even old style European Cup, but feel I would be buying quite a few teams for little reward, especially if they went out in the group stages or first round.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

I first started by playing a complete 1982/3 First Division, which was great but didn't fancy doing another as its a long haul.
Decided then to start a league of four divisions and carry it on from year to year. I've got 12 teams in each and the fun of this is that there is relegation and promotions. I only play three games per week in the First division and one in each of the other three. All the other games are decided by a system, so it is very manageable. I also do a League cup and an FA cup where I involve another 16 teams (non league) to enter 64 teams.

Decide how much time you have.

Decide how long you want the season or tournament to last.

Work out how many games that represents.

You now have a starting point for the format of your tournament.
