  • Can sport management and fantasy be combined?

    Hello,
    I have quite a tricky conceptual problem: can management and fantasy be combined? I'd love to hear what you guys think.

    Let's start from the beginning. I've tried both, and found them unsatisfactory eventually (the FM part took a decade or so, but that's a different story). Now I've decided to take things in my own hands and I'm trying to create simple games that combine the best parts of each one, or - in other words - create a bridge between gaming and what you see on the telly. Which are said best parts?

    Management:
    long-term planning
    complex financial model
    laws of supply and demand
    realistic team selection
    in-depth performance analysis

    Fantasy:
    real-life results and career paths
    pure multiplayer

    The links are below in case you're interested in more details of my attempt to create such a game. But more importantly, I'd love to hear whether you see any conceptual problems. I suspect there are some I can't quite see.
    Cheers,
    Daniel

    We're currently around 20 people, but up to 100 people could take part (in which case you'd be limited to one team each). I'll be travelling to the Olympic Games, thus the official kick-off is August 12.

      (Scratch that, turns out in France they're kicking off on August 11.)

      Our game has started! You can still join.

            Sorry for the delay, just seen your post

            If you want to know more, contact me at ProFSL. I won't be coming back here.

            In short: A web of major European football competitions. Allows every user to own up to 1 team per country. The competitions are the top divisions in England, Spain, Italy, Germany, and France. Separate player universe per country, allowing for easy scoring according to the national calendar. Countries connected by international transfers and loans, Champions League, and Europa League. Bonus: head-to-head League Cup and FA Cup. International and national transfers, international and national loans, free agents. Transfer fees, loan fees, signing fees. Every team has its budget (the vault), from which both fees (deducted once) and salaries of the players (deducted every 6 months) are paid. When buying a player, an understanding has to be reached between both teams (resulting in a transfer fee), as well as between the player and his new club (resulting in a new contract). All team rosters built from scratch.

            I also made two video tutorials, maybe they can help:
