I have just started a season as Team Wellington. Just curious to see if anyone else has had a go at the ASBP on the latest FM as well?

I am struggling to find a database in which the ASB Premiership works correctly - what one are you using?

To be honest, I've just done a little bit of editing in the Editor itself and then done the rest (competition format etc) in the Nation Rules part of the Editor. Works quite nicely although it's a very short season of course.

Only major difference I have is that I have the Chatham Cup running at the same time as I like the idea of the ABSP teams competing against the established club sides for that in a FA Cup-style David & Goliath scenario. :)

check this one out.. works out fine for me ;) http://www.fmscout.com/a-fm16-leagues-megapack-by-...

I think it's about 99% correct apart from some players who aren't in the right team.

Have fun!

Yeah massively indepth...No chance to have careers in to 2040+ that I had in FM08, FM09 & FM10 any more...

Though the FM Classic (or is it FM Touch now?) mode is a little less in depth, I think I'd like the options to turn a lot more things on & off so easier to play through some seasons.

I find when I first join a club it takes me about 10-20hrs gameplay before I play the first game of the season (Assuming I join in preseason), if I join in season then I spend a long time preparing for the first transfer window before I even push continue that first time...

Oh and that 10-20hrs wouldn't include me setting up my squad & transfer views that I do before doing anything else (Though only have to do them 1-2 times per game release)

Man, it is bloody hard coaching the nix. I had to sell roly coz I was losing so much cash. And now Lia has kicked up a stink about us not challenging for the title so he doesn't want to play for me and reira is homesick and wants to leave at the end of the season! Ffs. Add to that the salary cap and max foreign players. My new plan is to get the editor and put them in England doc 2 and work them to the premiership

I used the editor to take over a team from "Wellington" in Lower Leagues  (Using a Level 10 edit), changed them to yellow & black, and a few other small edits and worked them up :)

Yea I might have to do that. My guys are still on struggle street. The transfer window was a nightmare for me with players wanting to jump. BUT I sign del peiro for peanuts and now Krishna is banging them in!! ... I'll still get the sack at the end of the season though....

I'm slowly getting the hang of it now. I've quickly learnt that going on the attack all the time is the worst thing to do. But now I'm struggling to buy in good players now that I don't know who is good anymore( this is a few seasons into the future) and all of my scouts are only 1 star. In fact all of my staff are 1 star. I need to get a few 2s and 3s I think.

Yes - scouting quality is key. Also need to scout players for a while especially to avoid injury proneness. I personally think the Australian local players in the database have inflated Current Ability and Potential Ability. 

Are you still the Nix? What year?

Anyone else think that this season's EPL looks like something from FM a few game-years in? United and Chelsea out of the top 4, Bournemouth looking like staying up, Villa going down, and of course Spurs and Leicester battling for the title. Even Leicester's squad looks like something out of the game - top scorer was playing non-league football a few years ago and their best mid cost less than a million pounds.

People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.

i was but after a huge fudge up last night i lost my game. I was playing around with the in game editor and was trying to create a nix team in 2nd div england and accidentally saved over my file!!! 

I was in my 2nd year with the nix and i had managed 9th in the first and was sitting 6th half way through the second.  

i think ive settled  on a structure with the nix that worked well and that is a 4-4(off set with Krishna playing AML)2. was working really well for me. Both Fenton and Gorrin come on heaps ay

yea scouting and contract signing still does my head in. i struggle gettting a good balance of things ay.

Into my 2nd season with the nix in England. Came 3rd in league 2. Got promoted and now I'm getting smashed. But my biggest issue is not being able to re-sign any nix players(except for arod and Albert) due to visa restrictions. So at the end of the year most of my team will leave for free.... Fark.

Oh yeah you need to give them secondary English nationality or you are screwed.

Just got this the other day. Took over as AW's manager so I could play around with tactics, formations etc without the financial pressures of running the Nix. Also find it's helpful having a good look at the National Pool, to get a gauge of the talent, and the regen's coming through who could be promising players, so I can knick in for them later on :)

Won the Nations Cup in a canter, and had some encouraging results against some decent sides (ie - teams in the top 80 in the world rankings), drew 0-0 with Ivory Coast, thrashed Montenegro, Canada, & Haiti. Dominated Venezuela in shots, possession passing, but lost 1-0...

Will take over the Nix at the end of the season as Ernie's off in to retirement. Looking like a shocking team to try and take over, I'll try get some screen grabs of what I'll be getting myself into. 

Already sorted my strategy for them too. Planning to release all import spots and raid the lower leagues of Uruguay, Chile for cheap talented kids. Try and pick up some of my AW's regulars - Musa, De Vries, Old (Yes Steven Old!) Roux. And promote Dimairo, Singh, McGarry & Rogerson. 

Wish me luck!

Try USA as well. In previous versions of the game all their clubs had high Youth facilities and Youth coaching so players had high PA. Haven't looked this time around but probably still the same. I've had back luck in the past with South Americans not adapting and wanting to go home (mainly Brazilians and Argentinians though).
