We kicked off the first short season of our FIFA Masters Championship (FMC) on both 360 & PS3 in October as a pilot to get the Players and Admins used to the playing system, ready for the 2nd season, which we plan to kick-off on Friday November 15th from 5pm. Get signed up today and be ready to play on Friday!
The Aim of the FMC
The FIFA Masters Championship (FMC) is a structured ladder which encourages FIFA players to get involved in your FIFA community and where you match up against fellow FIFA fanatics. Players can play as much as they like in the Ladders and it will run up to Christmas and will consist of 2 leagues:
- League 1 (Everyone starts here)
- The Championship (Your chance to gain promotion in to the Elite League)
The top 4 players in the Championship at the end of the season will gain automatic entry in to the next season of the FIFA Masters Elite League, a high profile league where you match up against the best FIFA players around.
- The Ladders will give you a sense of achievement by playing in a great community that is friendly whilst competitive.
- Test your skills with like minded players.
- To gain and build your stats on the site.
- To play in Cups or Tourneys.
- Promotions through the divisions to get a chance to play the Elite players around the world.
- Chance to win some prizes along the way.
How the Ladder Works
Everyone starts in League 1 and the idea is to play as many games as you can to gain promotion when the Divisional Updates run, which will be every 14 days. When a Divisional Update happens the top 4 players will gain promotion into the Championship and the bottom 4 in the Championship will be relegated.
- To play matches click on the Match Scheduler.
- You simply click on the available times showing by clicking on the “Sign up For“
- Select the times that will suit you and you know you will be available to play. The times available will be set and will not change during the week or weekend.
- Once you have selected a time you will then be matched up with an opponent.
- A little tip when looking at the the scheduler is if you noticed the little ppl icon by the times is coloured, that means there is already a player who has selected this playing time, which means you have more chance of getting a match up with an opponent, which is key.
- Another tip to ensure ladder games flow, would be to contact the players profiles via the ladders. Send a guestbook message or site message or add them to your site buddy list & console. That way you could even arrange games yourself and make sure you select the same time slot. The more players selecting the same time slot the more chance of a match up.
- The game times close 15mins before, this is a period where you will be matched up with an opponent.
- Once you see who your opponent is you can contact them via the site and arrange to play.
- Once played you then have 60 minutes to report the result. Both players must report.
- If you click on the “Open Matches” which is located at the bottom right of the site in a grey bar, you can see your matches where you can open to report the score or add comments, etc…
- Once reported the ladder will be updated.
- The Points System is explained here.
