Assistant NT manager for small nations
« on: January 04, 2015, 01:19:10 AM »
I think there is a way to give managers in small nations (without elected NT managers) some involvement in the management of their NT without full managerial controls.

Allow these nations to elect an "assistant NT manager" with limited controls, specifically:

- the ability to select formation and tactics prior to the weekly player selection deadline. Ideally the computer would then select the best players for the formation and tactics, but the manager could not select the players directly.
- the ability to set advance instructions and edit individual settings after the weekly player selection deadline. Starting lineups and tactics at kickoff would be set (and unchangeable once player selection was made) but special instructions could be used to alter these during the match and individual settings (long shots, run with ball, on penalty area) could be edited to improve the effectiveness of individual players.

Thus, the game engine would do all the player selection, but the "assistant manager" could still influence their NTs by selecting formations/tactics that would enable their nation's best players to play in their favoured positions, and affect how the team played without directly selecting players, eliminating the possibility for managers in small (and off-the-radar) nations to abuse their position as full NT manager.

What do you think?  ;)

I like the idea. Play againist COM (BOT) is not funny neither fair. Small Nations need to have a human NT coach. It would be better to have a real NT, but is better to have an assistant NT than nothing.

 ;) This is an awesome idea and really what the Bermuda League has wanted for a long time. The ability to select players is key for team development but having the ability to not have the BOTS select players out of position or use those crappy tactics would be a Godsend. We could really get more involved with Nation Team activities and take some pride in what our small countries are doing there. Two thumbs up Brian. 8) 8)

It would be a great solution to avoid cheating in smaller countries, and it would also increase the NT level, like it!

Great idea, it would be fine. Again, the game is somewhat been improved.

But when would have the opportunity to fully benefit, when I've already suggested that the managers of the national teams can edit their national dress, not the developers still implement this idea.

1. question: How would the NT Assistant be chosen? From whom?
2. question: If there already is the way to choose NT Assistant, why not to give him full rights, and make him NT Manager? It is certainly easier and IMHO better, than making additional constrains for NT Assistants.

Although, any solution is better than having bot nations! Cheers!

1. Elected just like the NT managers are, but just for small nations currently without NT managers
2. agreed, but there are legitimate concerns that managers could hijack small nations and use the position to train their players rather than select the nation's finest. I'd assume that once a nation had enough managers they would get full rights.
