Season 13 was full of tough matches, both in league and cups. Although it was suppose to be unlucky, there were no major bugs found, so that was a good thing.
In Division A Junior MKS, despite losing its manager, won the title for the third time with clear advantage of 11 points over Tormboo S.C. Dean Hutchison of FC Comandoh was the top scorer with 25 goals.
In Division B, as usual, it was very tight at the top, this season Chievo Verona became the champion with 2 points advantage over Bombezni Lamantyny. Daniel of Super Dark Blue was the top scorer of this division with 25 goals.
In Division C it was even tighter with Nothing Toulouse FC and Kimmeridge ending up with same amount of points, same match record (20-1-1), but Nothing Toulouse won by better goal difference. Chin-Mae Moon of SAC Suncheon ended up as division top scorer with 17 goals.
In Division D Nanning Royals FC beat FC Bartalona by only 2 points and until the last round the title was up for grab. Ian Holland of GoeBezig Vilvoorde was the top scorer with 16 goals.
Congratulations to the champions and smaller congratulations to those, who ended on second places :)
New indoor matches engine just made its premiere with... tiny glitch, of course. The new version puts a bit more emphasis on team formation selected for the tournament, so now it makes a bigger difference if you choose 2-2-1, 2-1-2 or 3-1-1 formation. Another difference is that each match details right now contains not only the goal scorers, but also full statistics for each player involved in the match and simple representation of team formation used by both teams.
There will be few changes for the upcoming season 17, apart from new match engine, there will be better indoor tournaments match engine, fully played reserve / youth team matches. Also there will be two changes in the transfer system: planned transfers will be finalised after each league round and the transfer window will not close after round 12. There are small changes in the interface, which is part of the bigger planned rework.
The start of season 17 will be delayed until Wednesday, 19th April, so I could do some more tests of the new engine. The main change in new version is putting more emphasis on tactics and team formation than in previous one. This should result in less predictable matches - even if you have less skilled players you can use the weak points of you opponent to your advantage. Second main change aims to reduce chances of one-sided matches, where one club gets 70% of the ball possession and 90% of goal chances. Third important change will be with the tactics settings - your playmaker will be able to try another tactical setting (f.e. switching to attack on the wings rather than through center) if the tactics up to that point was completely ineffective. It does not mean that the basics of the engine have changed, if you had a strong team, it will remain strong, but it will take a bit more effort to prove your domination over your opponents.
