Xbox Blog - Edition 6

Written by Scottish Champ

As a famous man (or child) once said. Back once again for the renegade master, D4 damager, power to the people. Back once again for the renegade master,D4 damager, with the ill behaviour. Or something like that. Anyway the reset is done! We're back for our semi-regular look at what’s going on in Xbox land.

First things First, A Call To Arms

The Xbox Leagues need YOU.

It’s the start of the new season and the xbox leagues are alive and kicking, 24 teams, 3 new members and 1 not so new (but a welcome returnee). We need to keep things moving this season, no waiting weeks to play fixtures. If you arrange a time make sure you are there ready to play. Be active on the forum, get involved (especially in community nights) and most of all enjoy it and sell me all your good players for cheap. Seriously though let’s build on what we have over the season and not regress this time, we are a great bunch so let’s keep adding to our squad!

 

Championeees

After contacting Steven Hawking to calculate the final positions after some disappointing effort by some to get all the fixtures played. Congratulations to MB 11 on winning the Season 10 Xbox title. MB declined to comment from his golden pedestal instead opting to polish his G.O.A.T horns. One things for sure he will have a big target on his back in Season 11 as everyone tries to beat the champ. Rumour has it someone south of the Spaghetti junction was quoted as saying

"Blimey! I'll beat dis boy if its da last fn' I do, He 'as made a fool ov me fer da last time. Nuff said, yeah, just you wait and take a butchers hook at the table in carpet months time"

 

In Memoriam

Sadly we have lost a few members over the off season most notably Ginger Pele, we are sorry to see him go and we can neither confirm nor deny the rumour he has ran off with Anne Robinson to make beautiful music together.
However…

 

New Blood!

A big welcome to Recon, TO Falcon and Donkeyhugger who have joined the ranks heading into the new season. We also welcome back Laid Back Yeti.
Get stuck in lad’s and don’t be shy.

 

The Big Reset

The reset news dropped in February this year and I think it's fair to say an absolute sh*t load has gone on since then. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say a massive thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work, effort and own time they have sacrificed into the whole thing. Yes, even the PS4 darkside pookeynoodle's have our best wishes after this one.

Tuesday the 25th of April had a big red circle round it on everyone's calendar the big team draw was incoming. Everyone gathered round youtube waiting to see who they would get. The numbers were lined up and drawn, and the chaos began. Whilst there was an almost universal Connor McGregor style "Who the f**k is this guy", we contacted a few managers to see their thoughts on their new teams.

"All the teams are really well balanced. Some have better defensive options, but others some better offensive option. So more or less balanced."

"Potential"

"A good balance but slow in the centre of the park and lightweight upfront"

"The oldness was destiny"

"What is this abomination, can I not have someone I like?!"

"Where the f**k's Larrondo"

"Got a good solid spine to the squad, just needed to add abit of flair"

"I wondered whether there was a a third world war that wiped out every man between the ages of 24 and 29... everyone's a baby or an old man!"

"Man that SC is a pookeynoodle, bet his team is awesome... i don’t even know who half this lot are, this keeper better be good... oh sexy forwards.. sweet"

"Not too bad. Like seeing an average looking bird with great boobs. Not perfect, but I'll have fun playing with them."

Once everyone settled down and got to work gentleman's agreements were flying around thick and fast, and no one even had their budget yet. At the last check The xbox side on their own had participated in approx. 120 transfers. There's no truth in the story that MB, Adrian and Taz have been involved in 84 of them.
And that just about brings us up to the present day. Hope and Anticipation building, Dreams preparing to be shattered and 2 divsions of Xbox players waiting to see how tall Jeemy's strikers are.

I'm Antony aka WilfulTrack.

When did you first start playing PES?

PredatorFC recommended it to me.

What Brought you to PEN ?

Two of my close friends are in the Xbox league. All they spoke about was this, transfers etc. I was still playing FIFA and they kept asking me to buy PES and join, finally I did and I haven't looked back since!

How Long have you been here?

I joined in November.

If you don't play both, why did you choose PES over Fifa, If you do play both Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

I chose PES over FIFA because PES game play is more realistic and is a generally better game than FIFA in my opinion.

PEN Honours ?

I have no PEN honours at the moment.

What do you get up to in the real world?  Job/interests etc

I work in a supermarket. My hobbies are gaming, going to concerts, traveling when I can, playing the guitar and socializing with friends.

Worrisome Owl

When did you first start playing PES?

I've played since the days of International Superstar Soccer, but had a break of 3-4 years around 2009-2012.

What Brought you to PEN ?

I like to play with the non superstar players, so this format seemed ideal to me.

How Long have you been here?

Only a few weeks, so with the reset, it's all been abit chaotic.

If you don't play both, why did you choose PES over Fifa, If you do play both Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

I play a bit of both, mainly PES for single player & FIFA for Pro clubs

PEN Honours ?

Nothing just yet as I'm new to it all.

What do you get up to in the real world?  Job/interests etc

I'm self-employed. I sell electronics & video games online and most recently did a property renovation.

I've got a 10 month old baby girl, so she keeps us very busy.

What football team do you support?

Stoke City season ticket holder.

If you were a footballer who would you be and why?

Alexander Hleb, Ozil or Iniesta. I'm a creator rather than a goalscorer.

Tell us something we might not know about you?

I definitely think WBA are a far better team than us.

 

That's all for this edition folks, We'll be back for another look once the season is underway.
