Since people asking for ideas as to who to be in their career modes is a major cause of spam and general wasting of people's time, from now on you can simply direct them here!
The premise of this thread, similar to the Recommended Players Thread of the FIFA 12 forum is a two-way source of challenges and ideas for people's Career Mode games.
Quite simply, if you have an idea for a Career Mode challenge that you think would be fun, post it here. Likewise, if you want a good idea for your Career Mode, it's all in one, easy to find place.
If you post your suggestions using this format, makes it easier for me to put them all into one post.
[b]Challenge Name:[/b] This is the name of your challenge, if it has one.
[b]Team(s):[/b] The team (or group of teams, ie. "League Two teams") this challenge takes place with
[b]Aim of the Challenge:[/b] The overall goal of the challenge ie. "Win the Champion's League"
[b]Rules of the Challenge:[/b] Any extra rules of the challenge, ie. "Youth Players only"
LIST OF CHALLENGES
Challenge Name: Journey to the Top
Team(s): Any 0.5* or 1* team.
Aim of the Challenge: To become the manager of a major European footballing team; Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, AC Milan or Bayern Munich
Rules of the Challenge: This is a journeyman career, and as such you are not allowed to stay at any one club for longer than one season until you reach one o the teams listed above.
Challenge Name: ..But you can call us "World XI"
Team(s): Any team, though an incredibly rich one will come in handy.
Aim of the Challenge: To assemble the best footballing XI in the world.
Rules of the Challenge: You must buy, train or scout the highest rated player in the world for each of your positions. The challenge is complete when your entire starting XI has the highest OVR rating of anyone in their chosen position (highest rated GK, highest rated RB, etc.) This does not necessarily mean you need the 11 highest rated players in the game. Messi (CF) and Neymar (CF) will no doubt both be rated higher than the highest rated RB, but you only need Messi to complete the challenge (unless you aren't playing a CF) If you aren't clear, your starting XI must each have the highest OVR in the game for the position in which they are playing. Joint-highest is acceptable.
Challenge Name: Who are they? Exactly.
Team(s): Any League Two team
Aim of the Challenge: Win the Champion's League
Rules of the Challenge: For the completion of the challenge, your entire Starting XI & subs must be scouted players who have come through your academy. You may have non-scouted players in your team at any point, but to complete the challenge, no non-scouted players can play or be on the bench for the Champion's League final match.

Challenge: League 2 team to best in Europe Club: Any in League 2 (I used York City because I live in York) Time Limit: None Rules: No created players
I gave York a couple of world class players, simmed a season and then sold them and started building from there. Don't worry about wages because you get £12.6m for winning premier league £6m for champo league etc so as you get better going up through the leagues you earn more money. It's boring at first but you eventually see the progress.

Challenge Name: Money Mission
Team(s): Any (Real Madrid,Barcelona,Man City and PSG are easiest)
Aim: To get 1 Billion worth of transfer funds when slider is at 50:50 by the end of a season
(Note: if your transfer budget is lower the following season take note of it beforehand and add the profits of the next season to it)
Rules: You must try to sell the players you have from the start of the year until the January transfer window. any player not sold in that year must be released (transfers bought in July-August window do not have to be sold only the following year)
You cannot have 1 billion funds on a different wage budget. You can adjust the slider but only at 50:50 is when the 10 billion counts.
You are not allowed to Loan In or Loan Out Players
You cannot Pre-Sign people. That means you cannot sign people who are on their last year of contract and get them free the following season.
You cannot use the Youth Academy
Billionaire Takeover is allowed for assisting in your first playthrough
Strategies: Buy young players with high potentials and sell them next year for profits. E.g. Buy Balotelli at 84 rated and develop him to 89 before the next season and make profits of around 20M
Do not put high quality players on the transfer list as your adviser does not give you high price ranges that your player could be sold at and may not make profits.
THIS IS HARDER THAN IT LOOKS BE AWARE

One thing they need to change is when you search for a player to buy and you select like 70-75 overall, there are that many players that by the time you get to the allocated 150, you're only on like 72... Which means you cannot see 70, 71 and the rest of 72 - which if you aren't particularly looking for a certain type of player can be annoying. They need to either higher the allocated amount or let us look for all overalls like 70-71, 71-72, 72-73 etc...
