1) What was the biggest challenge throughout your manager career?

Getting started and getting over the initial learning curve. The first season was all about understanding the interface and how to play. I quickly realized I could play 4231 all the time in league 3 and win a lot but still not enough wins to advance until I started building a good roster of players and a strategy.

2) What is your strategy to win?

First I observe my opponents. The dGoal interface is great for understanding and countering their tendencies. Also for a team that appears to use a lot of formations, I might look back to the previous seasons and see they only play one or two formations when facing my team.

Second, for time management I learned to submit my formations for half the season right away and then the other half near the midway point. This way all I have to check is if anyone was injured or blocked.

Last but most important is player selection. Until I can max my youth academy I rely on signing or buying players. I try to find players that excel in their formations more than in their overall strength (OS).

3) What is your favorite team member and why?

I have one player, Oliwier Kowalczyk—I call him Okie—who has probably been with me since league 3. He is 39 years old and a 58 OS so he doesn’t sound very good, but he is a 98 in the 4231 so he is still in my starting lineup for that formation. He will be the first in the Hall of Fame and Fortitude.

4) When did you realize you can win the season?

I was hopeful from the start but at the halfway point I was 12-1-1 and thought “wow, I am doing really good, I could win again.” Of course I immediately lost the next game 😂

5) What was the toughest game?

My second match against Beerbased Lifeforms, managed by @twinner. He is already a legendary champion and was second in the standings so a loss would have been devastating. I like to look at the match highlights and imagine the story. In that game Beerbased Lifeforms went up 2-1 in minute 52 and it wasn’t until 88’ that we tied the game. It was a home game too so I can imagine the reaction in the stadium at that goal knowing the title implications of that game.

We meet each other in the last game of this season so that could be exciting to “watch.”

6) What was your personal highlight of the season?

It is hard to beat that one but I also like when my players get a three-goal hat trick. That happened three times this season so that is fun. A few seasons ago a player of mine scored three goals in three minutes. That would have been fun to see!

7)What opponent do you fear?

Definitely Beerbased Lifeforms and Bier Nach Vier managed by @uwelang. Both have so many championships. I try to pull out my best any time I’m facing either of them.

New contests to follow soon Rabona guys

Great insight on how Rabona should be played right, hopefully some knowledge sticks to me as well. :))

Thanks, @uwelang, for the opportunity. I think there are a number of successful strategies and it was fun to share mine

Maybe you should add Weekly Rabona Journal.

What would it be? You can elaborate! :)

All important news that happened that week, that we can read like a newspaper. Like this interview for example.

I like the idea - maybe a Season Journal

I like this mediatic stuff related to the game. It helps me to discover champions' secrets, too.
And...well done Fame and Fortitude! Hope to play one more time against you soon...but this time in League of Champions!

Looking forward to that day!

1st League is way harder than I thought.

Every league has a new set of challenges. Its is like parenting in that way 😂

Are you using the dGoal interface to scout common formations used by your opponents? All but the best players have tendencies/weaknesses that can be exploited.

I am using both interfaces. But dGoal is getting better and better. So, eager to see the next developments.
