PES 2020 - Boards League Thread

    Hi all,

    Just carrying on from a discussion on the PES 2018 thread, we're thinking of setting up a league for the new game on PS4, similar to the FIFA league run on boards.

    Firstly, before I put the wheels in motion, I'd like to gauge people's interest in a league and gather together some provisional numbers.

    It'll probably be a week or 2 after release before I'd start it up, purely to get people used to the new game and give those interested a chance to buy the game.

    Hopefully this can take off anyway!

    You probably have some in mind already, Colemania, but here's one I found that looks pretty straightforward :)

    I'm happy to start the setup of the league the week after release if everyone is ok with that and a minimum of 10 teams would be good with me. Already have 9 so we're in great shape with 9 or so days to go to release.

    I'm going to get on to one of the mods and try get a sticky on the first post of the thread with all boards and PSN usernames so it's easy to add people.

    Also, I'd like to make it clear that I'm open for suggestions throughout this whole process be it league format, knockout competition, random selection matches, what teams to choose from, rules etc. We're not a big community like that FIFA crowd (booooo :pac: ) so we need to make sure that everyone stays interested and keep a steady group together while adding to it when interest grows in the game.

    So anyone who hasn't posted their PSN in the thread already, let me know by PM preferably or just post on the thread again.

    Thanks lads :)

    I'd like to be the guy who offers no suggestions what so ever but moans about every decision made afterwards if that's ok.

    Great stuff, Colemania! Excited about this :)

    Over the years I've organised local PES tournaments. They were great days. We would have anything from 12-16 players per tournament.

    What I used to do was avoid picking the top, top teams like Madrid, Barca etc. Approximately 2 weeks before each tournament we would pick the correct amount of teams (anything from 3.5 - 4 star teams).

    We would draw out all the teams and assign one to each player. So, you found out what team you had and got to practice with them for a bit before the competition got underway.

    Anyway, just an idea :)

    That's a good idea, anything to avoid the Madrid Barca dilemma.

    Thanks Koolhanger. Yes I definitely plan on avoiding the 5 star teams, maybe even the 4.5 star teams. I'm going to do a random generator to assign picks for teams so people can then pick their own team. I see Leipzig are in the game so could be a good 4 star team to pick!

    What I find with Pro Evo, especially around the 3.5 - 4 star area, a lot of people have a go to team that you wouldn't normally think of so I don't want to pick 10 teams of my choice and then assign if you know what I mean. Always do well with Ireland for example in FIFA and Pro Evo, don't know how that's possible with Glenn Whelan and Stephen Ward :pac:

    Eventually if we have a steady group of players for the league, after a few seasons I'll start assigning team picks based on league position from the previous season. I'm sure we're going to have some excellent players on this and we need to give them a challenge ;)

    Great stuff. It sounds like you have it nicely planned out :)

    Looking forward to it!

    Ok lads, just from a quick look at PES 2017, the 4 star teams that we could pick from would be the likes of Crystal Palace, Leicester, Southampton, West Ham, Lyon, Lille, Marseille, Monaco, Nice, Fiorentina, Lazio, Bilbao, Valencia, any Dutch or Portuguese league teams.

    With regards 5 star teams, the only 5 star teams in PES 2017 were Barca, Madrid and Spain. So you can imagine that every big team I left out above is 4.5 star.

    What does everyone think of that? We can do 4.5 star starting off if ye want. I just fear the likes of United, Juventus, PSG and maybe Chelsea will be a good bit stronger than the rest but I could be wrong.

    I think you could have different weeks with different restrictions. 4 star some weeks. 4.5 star weeks every now and again.

    I actually don't mind playing against 4.5 star teams really as games against Roma, Arsenal, Dortmund, Atletico etc are great craic and it would be a real shame to exclude them all from the league as they're great fun to play as and against.

    Remove the handful of 5 star teams and you'd be fine. It's the Madrid monotony that's usually the problem.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,896 ✭✭✭ Exclamation Marc


    Another idea is that you could have a proviso that you could only pick a certain team 4/5 times during the course of the league. Given that you might have 20 games in the league it's not the worst to force switching it up.

    Keeps it fresh.

    Ya i get you. Maybe I'll just stick to everyone using the same team for the league and rather than go the whole hog and have everyone play each other twice, I'll see what everyone thinks after the first 3 games or so. If its getting stale using the same team, we'll just play each other once in the league and start afresh with the next league.

    I also had the suggestion of having a knockout cup competition during the league, i.e. during a standard 22 or so gameweek league, just to mix it up. We could do a random selection cup with that new mode and maybe use teams involved in the league.

    Loads of ideas for this league! :D

    I like the idea of using 4.5 star teams. I also think it's a good idea to run an "FA Cup" during the season as well :)

    I'm easy re what teams, I enjoy trying out different ones!

    Last year I ended up fairly fond of Leicester from just mixing up what team I played as!
