No one tells me I'm getting owned and gets away with it. Well, except for that one guy that told me he was going to own me then he ran away. He got away with it. Come to think of it, he's the only one that said that I was going to get owned. So after today, only 50% of the people who said they were going own me will get away with it. Be prepared for 'Spoony G and his hamster wheel'!

INTRODUCTION

About the Game


Description

Unreal Football (UF) is a turn-based, browser-based, text-based, online multiplayer football strategy game where you assume the role of Head Coach and compete against other users in virtual football leagues.



Turn-Based

Most leagues will have a "one-a-day" simulation schedule, which means that one regular season (or post-season) game will be simulated once a day. This gives you plenty of time to manage your team between games.



Browser-Based

UF is played entirely through your browser. There is nothing to download in order to play the game.



Text-Based

With the exception of a few humble icons and logos here and there, there are no graphics in UF. When a game is simulated, you "watch" the game by reading the play-by-play commentary that was generated when the game was simulated.










Glossary of Terms


In this manual and throughout the site, there are certain terms which are mentioned repeatedly. It's important that you're familiar with the context in which these terms are used so that a clear line of communication can be established between yourself and the UF Dev Team. Below is a list of the most commonly used terms and their meanings:



Coach - This is the role you assume and how we refer to each other in the game. I'm a coach, you're a coach - we're all coaches. Sometimes used in place of "user".



The Game - This term refers to Unreal Football as a whole. (Example: We have just added two new features to the game.)



Leagues - These are the things you join. If UF is "the game", then leagues are "mini-games".



Season (League-Specific) - A league's season starts the moment it reaches its closing date and finishes when its UF Bowl is simulated.



Closing Date - When a pending league reaches its closing date, three things happen: 1) No more users are allowed to join it, 2) the draft auction gets processed, and 3) the league goes from "pending" to "active".



Pending Leagues - Leagues that are open for users to join.



Active Leagues - Leagues that have started. No more users are allowed to join the league once it becomes active.



Finished Leagues - Leagues that have finished.










GETTING STARTED

Registration


Before you can join a league, you have to register with the site. Registration is free.










Joining a League


Once you've activated your account, the next step is to join a league. There will ALWAYS be a league available to join. When a league fills up or kicks off, a new league is created automatically by the server to take its place.



There are three steps to joining a league:



1) Choose the league you wish to join.

2) Choose the conference and division you wish to be in for that league.

3) Choose a name for your team.



When you've completed all three steps, you have officially joined that league. At this stage you're strongly encouraged to setup your "Draft Auction" values. You have until the league reaches its closing date to do your auction, and once you've submitted it, you can go back and modify it as many times as you want until the league kicks off.



Also, if you decide for some reason that you no longer want to be in that league, or if you'd like to change divisions, you can "Drop" from the league and join it again. (Note: If you drop from a league, your auction values will be lost, so if you join it again, you'll have to re-setup your auction values.)










Drafting Players


This is also referred to as "setting up your Draft Auction" or "doing your auction".



Once you've joined a league, you can now setup your "draft auction".



On the auction screen, you will see one drop-down box for every player on whom you must place a bid (even if the bid is $0).



Example:



QB: [drop-down box 1] [drop-down box 2] [drop-down box 3] [drop-down box 4]



The 1st drop-dwn box represents your 1st-string quarterback, the 2nd drop-down box represents your 2nd-string quarterback, etc.



When the league kicks off, the server will look at everyone's auction values and assign the best player to the user who bid the highest for that position, and it will assign the second-best player in that position to the user who bid the second-highest, and so on.



Example:



User #1 bids $10,000,000 for his 1st-string quarterback.

User #2 bids $8,000,000 for his 1st-string quarterback.

User #3 bids $6,000,000 for his 1st-string quarterback.

And all the other users bid $2,000,000 for their 1st-string quarterbacks.



When the league kicks off, User #1 will get the highest-rated QB, User #2 will get the second-highest-rated QB, User #3 will get the third-highest-rated QB, and the rest of the players will be randomly assigned to the rest of the users who all bid the same amount.



You may submit and re-submit your draft auction as many times as you want before the league kicks off.













Waiting for the League to Kick-Off

Once you've setup your draft auction, there's not really much you can do until the league kicks off... so you just have to wait until it does. You will receive an e-mail when the auction has been processed and the league becomes active.

i need to check my scores from today...


Whoa, Im kicking ass. I have given up 2 FGs and 2 safeties total.

I scored 3 safties my first game... heh. Safetyfukin-athon.

Ari Chi3fs
12-12-2005, 01:27 PM
1 safety
4 FG's
2 Td's

heh. 2 points allowed today. My D is ferocious, apparently.

I play the DeathGrips twice in a row these next two games... could be interesting.

KCChiefsMan
12-12-2005, 01:30 PM
I joined, I'm off to a nice start at 2-0 with 44 PF & 8 PA

its interesting, but I don't understand the game planning that well, would it benefit you to sub in/out your players in different formation. I've just been going with my best players starting.....must be doing something right

I got Brad Johnson as my QB
Mad Dog as my MLB who is a 90...???
Marshall Faulk for the HB at a 98
and 3 WRs at a 93 that I never heard of
oh ya I got Will Shields too baby! but he's only an 88 wtf??

Ari Chi3fs
12-12-2005, 01:35 PM
i would recommend going into your next opponents play by play of their last game... and see what their tendencies are.

subbing in and out doesnt seem to matter... and you can rename your players, if you want.

MOhillbilly
12-12-2005, 01:35 PM

One question, it looks like the draft auction has spaces for both a 3-4 and a 4-3 defense...do you select all positions or just the ones applicable to the defense you want to run?

Ari Chi3fs
12-16-2005, 03:34 PM
One question, it looks like the draft auction has spaces for both a 3-4 and a 4-3 defense...do you select all positions or just the ones applicable to the defense you want to run?

the defense can be as vanilla as , All Run, Mostly Run, balanced, Mostly Pass, or All Pass.

Diving into the playbook seems a bit daunting at first... seeing as there are literally 6000 plays to choose from.

When drafting, I would allocate money on the key positions you want... Worked for me.

Weird, but todays games have yet to be simulated, and Im still pissed about our schlacking by KCChiefsMan, how embarassing.

Any way this can be put in the games forum, so we can find it easy and work on making this league happen after we get one under our belts?

Also...Am I just being a dummy or can you not select your plays et al until after the draft? It looks like noob 171 has been moved up to tuesday at 4:15 or so.

171 question.

I saw that the draft was to be moved up to today...but I see nothing has happened.

Can you not set any of your coaching settings..play calling preferences et al until after the draft?

htismaqe
12-21-2005, 09:05 AM
Yo, Iowanian, what kind of team did you end up drafting?

I haven't gotten through mine, but I noticed that my starting QB is Tim Couch and my backup is Neil O
Donnell. I got the Bus and LT in my backfield. :D

Iowanian
12-21-2005, 09:31 AM
I have no idea what the hell is going on...I put $0 on all the 3-4 positions...and its still a "full roster"

Alot of names I've never heard of, but I'm pretty deep at some positions.

QB M Hasselback,Trent Dilfer, B Volek, J Delhomme
RB Tiki Barber, Rudy Johnson, Ricky Williams.....
FB D Shelton......
TE. D Wilcox? J Robinson?......
WR Jimmy Smith, K McCardell, B Finneran.....Dave Klemic*
LT W Jackson J Jansen
RT Roman Oben, J Williams, A Gibson

D
LE J Kearse E flowers, M Tugbenyoh
DT a bunch of guys I've never heard of
RE McGinest, M Coleman
LOLB J Seau, B romanowski, M Greenwood
MLB..Mike Maslowski, B Harris
ROLB Kieth Jackson, Lavar Arrington...
CB..D Abraham, B Tayloy, T Vincent, Mike McKenzie....
SS L Flwoers....
FS.....
K D Knight? T seder?
P Turk...N Harris?


I'm not really sure to think about it...its confusing...

12-21-2005, 10:18 AM
My defense is stacked. My lowest guy is 86. I have Warren Sapp, Roman Phifer, Jimmy Johnson, Ray Lewis, Seau, Derrick Brooks, Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, and Kwame Lassiter.

And by the way, the fuggin Advanced playcalling is HORRIBLE.

Iowanian

I'm going to start with the basic play calling. Set my % and see what happens.

I'm afraid I'll not pay enough attention and end up Punting on 1% of my 1st downs or something.

I also didn't like that my punt/Kick returners have to be a safety or CB.

Unless I'm missing something, basic playcalling doesn't have percentages.

You just select your run/pass bias for both offense and defense...

I see no point in having an 89 man roster.
I hope they'll work on that and make you pick 53 positions to fill as you choose.

That'd be the first recommendation I'd make to the guy.

I dinked around quite a bit in the advanced playcalling and I know basically what I'd want...but I decided if I wanted to be confused by too many numbers and things that don't make sense...I should just do the work in front of me.

I dinked around quite a bit in the advanced playcalling and I know basically what I'd want...but I decided if I wanted to be confused by too many numbers and things that don't make sense...I should just do the work in front of me.

Yeah, the roster is kinda dumb. You should have the capability to fill your roster based on your philosophy and only draft positions you need.

I figured out how to get around it, but it took quite a bit of time.

And I'm like you on the advanced playcalling. Too much tedium for my taste...

0 dollar draft value still gets you a viable back up.
let the cpu auto arrange your roster - i got into mina and jacklegged it up and lost two division rival games to Kclee before i figured out that i had 2nd stringer at 4th string and guy in 2nd and 3rd ect.

When I auto arranged..It put Trent Dilfer ahead of Hassleback? It put Tiki Barber and Rudy Johnson behind Ricky Williams?

I'm going to give it a try, but hopefully the creator is up for some suggestions.

Yeah, the auto-arrange was messed up.

I ended up setting my depth chart and then going through every formation and making position changes.

Mine was supposed to have played last night also...and hasn't.

I have to say, I like the concept and the game has potential to entertain me for a while...but I'm not real impressed with the technical performance yet. I'm not long for the game if it doesn't start working.

I found this on the "Announcements" section of the game boards:

Games Simulating Behind Schedule <HR style="COLOR: #3d5b35" SIZE=1>Sorry for not posting this sooner, but I've been frantically trying to a) figure out what happened so it doesn't happen again, and b) trying to speed up the game server in order to reduce the HUGE backlog of games that are sitting in the game server queue.

for those of you who haven't already figured it out, here's what happened:

a couple of days ago, the game server crashed, and i wasn't notified about it. usually it sends me an e-mail, but this time it didn't, for whatever reason.

anyway, nearly 3 days go by when i finally realize that no games have been simulated in that time.....

not good.

when i checked to see how many games needed to be simulated, it was close to 700.

that's really not good, seeing as how it takes nearly 4 or 5 minutes to simulate a single game now.

at the current rate, we'll never catch up and things will always be behind schedule, so i've been doing everything in my power to optimize the game server and reduce the sim times as much as possible.

i've managed to get it down by about 30 seconds, but that's still not enough. it needs to come back down to 2 or 3 minutes MAX for a single game to be simulated if we're ever going to catch up and stay ahead of things. this is proving to be extremely difficult because there's just so much going on now with all the fatigue and injury and subs, etc.

i'll continue to work on it and i'll try to do a better job of keeping you guys informed as to what's going on.

if you're waiting for a league to simulate, please be patient, it might take a while for the server to get around to it, but it WILL eventually simulate your games.


sorry for this massive inconvenience,
jul

Wow, that probably kills it for me.

We'll end up having games simulated at odd times and we'll lose because we haven't had a chance to tweak...

This game is ****ing dumb.

The best rushing team in the league averaging just over 1 yard per carry?

I have Jerome Bettis AND LaDanian Tomlinson. I have Walter Jones and 4 other linemen rated 86 or over.

And I'm averaging .97 yards per carry?!?!

This is just dumb.

thanks! I just hope Marhsall Faulk continues to tear it up at 2.69 yds per carry and my QB Brad Johnson who has started all year with 2000 yds, 4 TD passes and 0 ints.....

what an amazing year, not one single QB in the whole league threw an interception ROFL

I just noticed my Atlantica Crackwhores have been punting on 1st-3rd down. Gotta fix that one.
