    Challenge 24 - Here come the Vikings



    Challenge 24 - Here Come the Vikings

    The Viking Age was a period in European History, especially Northern European and Scandinavian history, spanning the late 8th to the mid 13th centuries. Scandinavian Vikings explored Europe by its oceans and rivers for trade and warfare.

    Your goal is to take a band of Vikings (Load Norway and take control of Viking FK) and defeat your European adversaries in the shortest time possible. Once you win the CL the challenge is over. You have 5 seasons to accomplish this task.

    Database: March 2013
    Transfer/Squad Restrictions - You must have a minimum of 5 Norwegians, 5 Swedes and 5 Danes in your squad. You are not allowed to have any other nationalities in your squad by your first competitive game of season 2.

    Tactics restrictions
    - You must use a formation with 4 forwards

    (Vikings being known for their attacking skill rather than their defensive capabilities). No wib-wob but arrows and player/team instructions can be changed at will.

    Points:

    Win the League = 100 points
    Win the Cup = 100 points
    Win the CL in season 2 = 1000 points
    Win the CL in season 3 = 750 points
    Win the CL in season 4 = 500 points
    Win the CL in season 5 = 250 points
    Every league goal scored = 1 point

    Every player who isn’t Norwegian, Swedish or Danish who plays in season 1 = -1 point per player per game

    Required Screenshots: Formation, Squad at the start of each season, appearances at the end of season 1, and anything else to prove your points

    See you in Valhalla

    By the way I haven't really tested this one so much as I'm working on a crazy long challenge idea that I've been busy with..... so apologies if it's not up to scratch

    Guys.. i got a question or 20 ... First time on these challenges...

    Can i load more leagues and not the Norwegian alone?
    By 4 forwards, its 4 as far up as they can go right? LF,SC,SC,RF right? No Wingers with arrows up or anything?
    Appearances at the end of season 1, a view from "Selection mode" will be enough right? Dont have to take a screenshot of each player right?

    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_are_fi...ngs_so_awesome Why are finnish vikings so awesome? Finland, like most countries of pre-medieval times, consisted of various tribes, only one of which were the Finns. During the Viking era, there was no such thing as Finland the country. Thus, the tribes of Scandanavia in general roamed freely between the different provinces by land and by sea. Thus, the Swedish Vikings and the Finnish Vikings were often descended from the same tribe. Finland had Vikings and they were just as awesome as any other place like Sweden and Norway.

    You are right. I should have researched this before posting up. Just wrongly assumed Finland was known for Vikings too

    Being Norwegian and all, I really should win this.. But one question:

    "You must have a minimum of 5 Norwegians, 5 Swedes and 5 Danes in your squad. You are not allowed to have any other nationalities in your squad by your first competitive game of season 2".

    Can I go all Norwegian? Or do I have to include both Norwegians, Swedes and Danes in the squad (5 of each)?

    Nope.... you must have a minimum of 5 each.... so you can have 5 Swedes, 5 Danes and the rest as your people

    I'm assuming that this challenge is close to impossible with no wib/wob by the way.... but I wanted to see what people could do with such heavy tactic restrictions
