    Cup Draw

    Why the feck do I constantly get a difficult draw?? For the fourth season running in going to be out of the cup before the league campaign begins......

    So come Tuesday I'll have only the league to play for

    Yet many of my friends all won handsomely today against weaker teams, my draw was against a higher level opponent.

    Because you have a strong team and get into higher level cup draws.

    2(2) 1st 3rd Top 16
    3(3) 1st Top 16 Playoffs
    4(4) tbc. tbc. Playoffs

    The average quality of your top 14 players are matched with similar average quality of other managers top 14 players, regardless of level

    Not really regardless of level, NGE still tries to group those team with similar quality and also close club levels together.

    In my opinion the cup is the weakest trophy to win. Especially if you make your team weaker before the draw. I cant see where the fun is, when you have to do this to beat teams 2-3 divisjons below. Its more fun to win a game when you meet an participant who are in your league. My opinion

    Every competition have a troll form to be owned.

    League if you add friends with low quality teams.

    CL if you tank.

    Cup if you sell all the team at the end of season and buy 3* and keep 1-2*..... and when season starts sell all again to obtain 5-6*.....

    Play as you want. I like to play light, tanking :P

    In 17 seasons I've never played a team in the Cup less than 2 levels above me.
    I've won it once and am happy just to even reach the knockout stage.
    It sounds more fun beating teams two levels below me.
