Difficulty - Extra Hard

Expires 5pm Saturday 15th July 2017


The save
Now it gets tough, you take over SonBong Sports Group in North Korea, they sit bottom of the league with 20 games played, 1 win and a goal difference of -45. Your mission is to somehow save Sonbong from relegation.

If thats not difficult enough for you, the team has 1 player who's 26 and the rest are 18 year old or younger, with an extremely small squad. Good luck, you're going to need it!

  • The manager has already been added, you just have to load the game.

  • Save must be uploaded. Tutorial at the bottom
  • The game must only be saved once at the end of the challenge, please ensure auto save is turned off in the preferences. Game status shows us how many times its been saved, currently 2. This should finish on 3.
  • No use of any kind of editors, we'll be able to tell via the save game being uploaded.
  • No transfers allowed for this particular challenge.

The number of points you accumulate during the challenge will convert directly as your score.
3 points for a win
1 point for a draw
0 points for a loss
15 points if you save them from relegation
5 points per clean sheet

Uploading the save
One of the easiest ways to upload the save would be mediafire, you can automatically sign up via facebook if you don't have an account. Simply click the upload button and once you save it for the final time just go to the following location; My computer > Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2017 > Games You should find the save file, should be called FMScout Challenge. Once uploaded, copy the link and post it into this thread.

Overall Leaderboard
Can be found HERE

Other Info
Sometimes game saves corrupts when we try to load them, if this is the case send screenshots to the thread you posted in, we will only accept screenshots after we've attempted to open the save, we require a game save file first.
The winner will be added to FMScouts & ooClanoo official twitch channel in the panels located at FMScout & ooClanoo

Does the no transfer policy include using grey players and players from youth intake?

First time, managed to win once and drew twice. Sacked before the last 2 games due to relegation.

At 81st minute of the last game I was safe.. but conceded and was relegated.

Some wins, a draw, clean sheets, not bad. Just gutted didn't avoid relegation when it was so close.

This may be my last challenge.

I've tried all of them and the short term challenge just doesn't interest me.

I love that you get to play teams and leagues you normally wouldn't but I find it hard to see the point, when you only get to manage 7-10 games.

There's no depth and no time to really get in and get your team to learn a tactic. It seems to me that results are random then and sometimes based on luck rather than really great in depth managing.

Just my opinion.
