EAB/Lemon Super League 2013: Round 5 - Speedball 2

EAB/Lemon Super League 2013: Round 5 - Speedball 2

Starts: 00:01 April 14 Finishes: 23:59 May 4

Rules

Post a picture of your score here with the score written underneath. Enter as often as you like. Only scores achieved during the round's time frame count.

Play Knockout mode - your score will be 1,000 multiplied by the round you reach, together with the goal difference during the last game you play - i.e. a 36-20 defeat in round four will give you a score of 3,984. Draws and defeats mean your game is over.

No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. No continues/passwords allowed. If you suspect anyone of cheating please let us know in private - anyone found guilty will be banned for the entire season.

Remember, anyone can join in at any time. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

For a guide, here are the teams you play in each round:

1 - Revolver
2 - Raw Messiahs
3 - Violent Desire
4 - Baroque
5 - Renegades
6 - Damocles
7 - Steel Fury
8 - Powerhouse
9 - Rage 2000
10 - Mean Machine
11 - Explosive Lords
12 - Lethal Formula
13 - Turbo Hammers
14 - Fatal Justice
15 - Super Nashwan

It won't say anywhere in the game which round you are on so it is easy to lose count, but it will say on the game over screen which team has just beaten you, so you can use this list to help work out your score.

If you win final match against Super Nashwan, you'll have to take a screenshot of the screen showing your final score, and also the following screen showing the image that signals that you've won the knockout trophy.

Thanks for this, and for all your input into this, it was a big help.

This is kind of why I thought playing just the division 2 teams might be a bit easy. Still, I didn't think I'd win it first time.

It's okay, Graham, everything's fine here now.

I've just reconnected to get a different IP address and that's solved the problem!

(Though what the exact cause could have been is anyone's guess. )

NEW! Thanks to mihcael we now have one of those lovely auto-updating scoreboards like they do on Lemon. On the plus side this means no more manually updating the first post with tedious copying and pasting of BB code, instead only having to bung the new score into our score-updating utility thing. On the down side, I'm starting to feel a little redundant

Some tips:
You want to get yourself a comfortable lead then concentrate on picking up as much money as possible without risking a loss. You'll want to aim for at least 1000 to spend between rounds.
I just upgrade everyone evenly with exception to center fwd, try to always max his ATT, SPD and POW.
It gets a lot easier as your squad stats increase..
In round 15 it's all about getting 2x multiplier quickly (loopy ramps on the side) then scoring as many goals as possible.

No more scores from me until the last few days

Dayam. Got to Rage 2000 and was fleeced, but the game over screen disappeared as I about to take the picture! Will play this again.

Sit back and relax! Make a game for us all to play - spare time is hobby time.

BIG SHOUT OUT to Mikes Superleague Live Ladder too. If anyone from EAB hasn't seen it yet, check it out.

I beat Fatal Justice by 270 points, but a lot of little things went wrong against Nashwan, so I didn't score as much.

15,150

It occurred to me that some people might be suspicious that some of the winning margin screenshots might not be from the final game - it also occurred that you could screenshot your ingame score just after you've scored, so it includes the name of the team you've just beaten. I know it's not necessary but I've included it anyway.

..and exactly who is suspicious?
Good idea though I'll include the extra screen next time

I tried capehorn's suggestion but didn't get the team names to display, only the final score as shown below, rendering it rather pointless:



Anyway, I'm sure you all believe me seeing how surprisingly easy it actually is. First go in years at this game. Forgotten how good it is, I have to say. A grade-A classic and no mistake.

joking aside, it's still a very good idea. Do both team names come up after scoring a goal? Even if the score totals don't match because you got some stars or domes later, at least it would confirm the player got to the final team. I know it's another one of those situations, now you've raised it. Will have to give this another go soon and see what can be done.

Yes it is sooo easy, but hats off to your victory all the same. Looks like the league will be tight come week 3.
