No, actually I wish I had my own thread. I made one a few years ago and I think a few people said "that's what the screenshot thread is for", but I really just wanted one for my own game(s). I mean, it makes sense for cool random screenshots, but this forum doesn't get any traffic anymore, why not each of the regulars have their own thread?
Thomas Muller: "We're not careless or arrogant. We're dominant'
this where qualis begin in earnest, and I think we have an outside shot in this group ... Uganda should be 2 wins in the bank ... we just beat Togo in that epic, so we're capable of getting the better of those two ties ... and Egypt are the ultimate chokers when it comes to WC qualifying in real life; don't know if the game engine will respect that record though
yeah, have to win the group ... I think we have enough quality to pull off a draw against Egypt at home, but I don't think we can beat them -- actually, I expect it'll be about managing the goal difference factor against them, just in case that ends up being a factor ... but since the game engine is essentially "on paper", I'd expect Egypt to hardly drop any points, so this could be a formality ...
as for coefficients, we've been going up the rankings consistently ... 2012 QF, 2013 SF, and a good showing so far in the WC qualis ... it's been better than I initially expected ...
I wish the answer was that easy, man ... but I've got a monster desktop PC, so I have the largest database option loaded (as well as every major league playable, not just the elites) ... I'm going to have to attribute it to the algorithms containing some sort of "upset" condition -- both for the big teams to flop, and the minnows to overachive: like Gabon making the Africa Cup final, or Canada making the 2014 World Cup while the USA failed to do so ...
I've noticed that on club level too. In my Ajax game Groningen and AZ were my biggest concurrents for the title, while PSV was somewhere midtable and Twente was fighting relegation. And in my Atletico game Almeria finished 3rd in the league table.
