    Welcome to
    The 3rd OcUK PS3 FIFA09 Cup

    [​IMG]

    This competition has now finished, see below for a full round up of results and the trophy award ceremony!

    Format & Guidelines

    I will be initially looking for 12 players to make 4 groups of 3, each player playing the other's in their group twice. The top two from each group will go through to the knock out stages. (3pts for a win, 1pt for a draw - Extra time does not count.) There will be a second knock out stage for those teams finishing in 3rd and 4th Place in their group, however the champion will be the winner of the main knock out stage.

    This Format will be confirmed when we have an Idea on how popular the competition will be. I may increase the numbers to 16 or 20 players if the demand is there.
    Edit: Right this has been upped to 20, due to there being a lot more demand to play than I had originally thought.

    Please note: Priority will be given to those who have proved reliable in previous competions.

    The Cup competion will be using 3.5 and 4* international sides.

    If lag causes a game to be unplayable then it should be quit and rescheduled, but please make sure this is obvious to your opponent that this is the case. It is worth trying swapping host if you are consistantly getting problems.

    It is virtually impossible to judge which player's connection is causing the lag problems, especially if they get decent connections with other players, so attempting at another time is the only real option, other than that each incidence will need to be looked at seperately for a decision to be made on the next step.

    Yep, will go with 4* again as it seems to be a good level for these competitions.

    ? so each have a different 4* team and play a different 4* team home and away...again? That was same as last time. Why not play as each other's team for one of the legs.

    That would even out the "fifa AI" and make it so that its the player who is entirely winning and not just the team.

    We should have a tougher time limit on games- the last couple of tourneys took ages!

    I'd like to put my name down...being following past fifa comp threads and always wanted to go for it.

    But before i do - is there a time limit on when games have to be played by, reason I ask is that im off on holiday soon and wont be able to take part for the next couple of weeks.

    Id liked to have a league to, but knowing how these things drag on a cup seems at least sustainable.

    Also I know when we first did a league and had teams assigned the ones with 'poorer' teams jsut dropped out and didnt play most of their games due to complaining about get the short straw...

    Perhaps for FIFA10 - should have a load of PS3ers getting the game (mines on pre-order)

    And with that, a load of newbies who will likely become dropouts.

    Looks like we already have a possible 12 entries, I will up the number to 16 (maybe even 20) as there seems to be more interest than I had expected.
