    What if a Cup tie was a one-legged affair?

    I don't know if it used to be so, started playing TE on sept. 2015. What's your opinion?
    If that happened, then we have to play only 7 matches to win it. It will reduce injury rate. In that case we can make the draw level based (where lower level managers have home advantage), 1vs 2, 3vs4, etc. draw can be like that. Anyhow, the cup would be harder to win.

    I thought about this since I have only 6 defenders. I generally play 5-4-1 at home cup and 4-2-2-2 in league. I means 2 of my defenders must play everyday. I had one injured, recovered on Day 7, that means each of my defenders had to play every other day. With only one game every 4th day it may reduce player fatigue.

    Bunzo, i wanna reduce injuries and player fatigue.
    spornybol, we can give the prize of both matches at once. In round 1 level 3, gate receipt is 60k/match. So 120k in the tie. So we can offer 120k in the lone match.

    Maybe a cup with only 1st and 2nd leg in the semi-finals, like league cup in England or Ta├ža de Portugal

    The injury rate problem can simply be solved by a change to the games programming code. Of course, that change will never happen.

    1.At a neutral ground
    2. Like the FA cup, a random draw for home advantage. If match drawn then replayed at the other stadium. Basically we play the 2nd leg of the cup if necessary.
