I love Master League - I hate playing AI

Recommended Posts

I've always loved master league since it's first inception in ISS Pro Evo 2 or whatever it was, spent hours alternating between that and power wanking over old VHS porn on my rickety wooden chair. 

 

Don't play it anymore, playing a real life player is so much better than the AI. Even if the game's are not better; they might be slaggier, laggier, less like the real iteration of football - they are against someone else, there's emotion, elation, despair. 

 

Is it feasible to make a Master League where the matches are played online?  Not like the old MLO, but where it's the fully offline set up of master league, and then the league match is against a real person matched similarly by your team strength and ability.    Obviously the teams shown in your league tables would have to be Team A/Team B/TeamC etc with randomly generated results , and then the other leagues  - Premier league, Italian etc would be as standard so you could still do the transfers.

 

I know it will never happen as it kills the Myclub cash cow, but could it work somehow? I haven't played Master League in years so don't know it it's feasible

I’ve always invested lots of time into master league, normally after I get fed up with online divisions...... but this year master league is gonna take a major hit since going PEN and finding like minded players 👍 so much more enjoyable playing friendlies (and eventually league matches I hope) against you lot 😁

I was thinking a few weeks ago about a master league with friends, like a football manager style game, would make it more exciting a think.

Of course Konami could easily do it.Will they of course not as it doesn't bring in coin.

Be thankful we have Pen.

Yeah, MLO was a lot better. They just need to make the top player ridiculous wage/cost so that people still spend on coins

I have/had a Paris FC (not to be mistaken with Paris-SG) save in Ligue 2 using the ML defaults.

The story underpinning the save was basically one of building to topple Paris-SG and become the number one club in Paris.

When I started, I hit it hard but slowed down as online friendlies/other games are always a lot more fun to play in a party.

It was being played on SuperStar and there were a few self-imposed rules:

- Don't take the best players from the Youth Team (Nelliender and Filzaotinho) and punt them big to set-up the club's finances.

- Take every offer from a club bigger than my own.

- Take every offer for the best players I have in the starter team (Arcas)

- Only buy players I have never ever heard of (not even pretending I have not heard of them to get them in on the sly).

 

I was enjoying it - it was a struggle aswell... then like a dickhead, I joined an invite for a PEN friendly without saving and lost a few hours worth of progress and just lost the love for it... as there was a couple of wins that I ground out with difficulty that I lost LOL.

Never revisited but this thread is making think about it, although the reality is a lot more furstrating ha ha.

Personally I had lots of fun with master league this year..... started out as Valencia but didn’t meet the targets set by the chairman, showed me the door after only a season in charge 😭

then applied for the vacant position at Las Palmas and only lasted a season hahaha, not meeting the chairman’s requirements once again.....

finally got a little bored when I took up my third managers position in three turbulent seasons as the boss of relegated Real Betis. Found things a little to easy in the spanish second division with quite a good squad at my disposal (and good transfer budget).

came away with a new found love for a few players though....... Parejo and Vezo at Valencia. Halilovic at Las Palmas and Durmisi and Boudebouz at Betis. 

I’m sure I would’ve stuck with it longer had it not been against the AI and against human opponents instead
