How many seasons does it take you to get promoted from division 3 on extreme?

As soon as you can buy players then just go for it, don't hold back with the shitty default team you get.

05-08-2003, 20:53
yea i do...all the best ones and that..i guess i want things to happen too quickly..cos getting promoted with the default team would be very hard

i think getting out of division 3 on extreme is the hardest thing to do in extreme mode but its also fun looking for great freebies you've never heard of or signed!
annoying when they dont come though!!

I have always finished top of every league in PES1 and PES2. These games are a little too easy.

WE6:FE and WE7 are much more difficult and provide a real challenge.
BTW, in WE7 there are 5 star levels for difficulty as there was in PES1. Not sure if you can change during the campaign. 5* will make you work hard.

when I make tranfers it usually takes me 2-3 seasons. I tried with the default team (no tranfers) and took me 9 seasons. There is a thread about getting promoted with default team and I try this now. tried 3 times (1st season 4th place, 2nd season 3rd place, 3rd season 2nd place, eliminated in playoffs)

Yes it's very hard the first season, but the 2. season is way to easy...

hard to say who long it takes cause it is a mether of skill and luck. Sometimes I manage to win the first 4 or 5 games, with average play. Sometimes I play very well in the beginning but shoot the post or the cpu goalie haas everything and I draw or lose.

Mostlyhowever I promote the first season and sometimes the second

Why won't Olisadebe or Mostovoi join my team, the sods, it's not like they have another :(

I don't know i don't think extreme is THAT hard when i was on hard i got up it my first season-i don't really play master league that much.

But as long as u keep it simple and just try and score the easy goals(sweet spot)then u can usally defend your goal lead quite well.

Its the scoring thats hard not the defending

agreed, I don't found the third division too hard.

20-09-2003, 15:08
Well I used to play on normal but ive started playing on extreme and im 3rd in Div 3 on my 1st season, but its impossible for me to finish in the top two.

20-09-2003, 15:11
I just finished in first, on my second season in the third division, despite a 3-1 tanking by Spartak in the last game. Here's hoping the play-offs go well....

It took me one season on the Extreme Level to get promoted. Just buy players as soon as you have the chance. Pull up their loans a bit and they will join your club. Don't worry to loose money because of the high wages. Just make sure you end first in the third division, have the top goalscorer and the top assister, and win the tiny cup. You will earn a lot of money doing that, and there won't be any problems.

Go for Chilavert (Paraguay), Dida (Brazil), Kiraly (Hungary), Quintana (Colombia), Gamarra (Paraguay), Suarez (Mexico), Mokoena (South-Africa), West (Nigeria), Ulises (Ecuador), Novak (Slovakia), Gedic (Slovakia), Fadiga (Senegal), Denilson (Brazil), Mostovoi (Russia), Juninho Paulista (Brazil), Balakov (Bulgaria), Zahovic (Slovenie), Djorkaeff (France), Zuma (South-Africa), Olisadebe (Poland), Diouf (Senegal), Rebrov (Ukraine), Masinga (South-Africa), McCarthy (South-Africa), Emile Mpenza (Belgium)

Later you will be able to sell those players and get a lot of money for them. This gives you the opportunity to buy your favorite player(s).

If Mostovoi, Diouf or Olisadebe join your team I want to know what you did that I didn't.

20-09-2003, 17:53
Just pull up their wages!!
For exemple: you want to buy Olisadebe. Salary points (for exemple): 260. Make it 375 or something like that. I'm sure he will join! Give him a 2 year-contract. You will have to pay less then when giving him a 5 year-contract. But if you do that, giving him a 5 year-contract for exemple, you will lose money: When he plays well, after a season or two, you will get offers from Juventus, ... They will give you a huge some of money. Sell him! But if you gave him a 5 year-contract instead of a 2 year-contract, the profit won't be that high, because you 'paid' for 5 years.

In PES2 and WE6:FE, whenever I bought a player I never offered more than 10 over the asking price for salary and wages and I usually got who I wanted.

21-09-2003, 19:01
yep, I don't usually offer too much unless I really want the player.

22-09-2003, 16:10
Doesn't work with me on the Extreme level. When I offer just a bite more money, most of the players won't join my club. Maybe it depends on the team you are playing with...

22-09-2003, 18:47
sometimes they come and sometimes they don't i never put the money up and people like Olisadebe and Emile Mpenza always join. Also Doni is an awesome free midfielder he would cost around 5000 points to buy. I usually go up in my first season or if i don't i lose in the play-offs.

i have only ever not finished top of div.3 twice, and i started the game straight from purchase on extreme mode, this is the best way cos although you get hammered in your first few games by the end of the season u will have cracked it. also i have finished top of the 2nd div every time and the first division. the closest i ever got to finishing 2nd was when if i lost my last game and the 2nd place team won i would concede the title. i lost but alas, so did they. this seems to be the problem with the difficulty of this game, the other teams are not consistent enough to challenge you. i think in the new game they should have some kind of system where 2 or three teams start buying players chelsea style if you are winning it by a mile every time and improve thier performances against you.
