Ok guys, with the world cup closing in fast I was thinking of doing a Fifa 14 (on the Xbox One) tournament for us to take part in.

I have the format sorted it is mainly based on the real thing - group stages and then knockout format and the amount of groups and numbers in each group will be decided nearer the time once I know how many people have signed up.

The 1 big problem/question I have is how do I rank the players and dish out the teams???

I will do a live Skype draw for the teams but need to work out who goes into which pot to be drawn out of.

Do I not rank people and just do a random draw for the teams (using the real life teams) - but if X Bulldog gets Brazil we are royally screwed lol. And say then also a weaker player gets the worst team it will be unfair. Or do you guys like that risk to the tournament?

Do I take the top players and draw them from one pot using weaker teams and everybody else using the better teams?

How do I balance the teams/players to make it a fun and fair comp.


So ideas guys? I need your help!!


Cheers

First thing to check are all the teams on the game that are in the comp? I remember euro there was a few teams missing.

If you try to get into a ranking system it will through up the question of who do you put into that upper tier. Personally I'd just throw all the names into a hat and depending on sign up numbers exclude the weaker teams (England lol) to suit the numbers. If that makes sense lol

I will make a list of teams in the real comp and see which ones are in the game and the missing ones.

Do we pick just the best teams then? Or mid ranked teams? I don't mind having more than one of each team in the comp.

Brazil will do me Smile

However we do it doesn't bother me. We haven't all played against each other in a long time anyway so will be hard to know how good some people are.

We could have only say 4 and half star teams which would narrow it down to a few teams to make it equal. I could pick say all the 4 and half star teams and do the live random draw for who goes in to what groups then people could pick what team they wanted from the small list of same starred teams. So all teams are equal.

Would that be an option guys?

What about if you have everyone have random teams from the championship. Then when playing the games, everyone uses the ea allstars team. or whatever they're called.

So you'd still have a countries name linked to you. Just not use said team when playing. Use it for the tables only.

I'd see how many people sign up, then pick that number of teams out of the current world cup teams, then draw a player to a team and then put the players into the groups!

I remember for Euro's I got poland and ended up beating spain and drawing with england. I think it's just a case of luck of the draw, didn't X bulldog get italy in the euros?

That's a good option.

So would be happy all players having same strength teams? I think it's to hard to judge whos better than who then trying to put them into ranks.

Random draw is the fairest way. If your good your good and if your bad your bad. Smile

Missing teams are:
Iran, Japan, Algeria, Ghana, Costa Rica, Honduras, Bosnia and Croatia


Ecuador are in there.

Possible Replacements:
Egypt and South Africa for Algeria and Ghana (only other 2 from Africa)

There are no replacement CONCACAF teams in FIFA so probably Venezuela and Paraguay are the most logical for Costa Rica and Honduras

Sweden and Romania as the only other European play-off teams in FIFA for Bosnia and Croatia

India???? (who knew...FIFA must be popular in Mumbai) for Iran - no other Asian team - so I would suggest New Zealand as the geographically closest for Japan.

Don't mention Ireland again Raingod, had nearly forgot about that.

Just an idea for maybe a future tournament, maybe we could hold a draft for picking teams. It could be based on where people finished the last tournament.
