- 6 March 2019
May have seen me playing around with the idea of starting a GOTM competition just for a bit of fun, well, rather than taking too long thinking about it, I've deiced to just get it up and running while the demo is out, and we can tweak the rules along the way if we need to!
Please read the rules below, it'll make everyone's life (especially mine!) much easier if you could follow them, I'd massively appreciate it.
So Welcome to our first GOTM for August 2019!
There are no restrictions whatsoever on the platform you play on, the game mode you're playing, the difficulty you're on, or what type of shooting / PA you use. Whether it's ML or MyClub, Basic shooting or Manual, they all count. All you'll need to do it let us know what kind of game you were playing, and what settings you were using, but I'll explain more about that further down.
Please do not completely discredit goals that have been scored using PA3, or against 'Professional' AI. Yes, I don't disagree that a tiki-taka manual goal might be a lot more impressive and be much more deserving of a GOTM, but not everyone plays at that level and we don't want to discourage anyone who may want to enter.
There is ONE entry per person.
You CAN change your entry should you wish to, as long as it's before the cut off date. However, please do not post another video and instead either delete or update your original post. This will make it easier for me, otherwise, I could end up with 10 videos from the same person in here, and only one is their entry.
ONLY goals recorded with actual gameplay will be included. Basically, I don't want goals recorded using the in-game editor like this
Please try to record to in-game replay of the goal as well if you can. They often look brilliant, and it'll help a lot. Appreciated though that if you play online your opponent might skip it, so, this isn't required, just a massive help if you can get it.
Should you miss the goal in game, the end of March highlights is normally a great replay too, such as this goal https://www.evo-web.co.uk/threads/evo-web-gotm-august-2019.80638/#post-3415407
Please also try to record the in-game sound effects as I'll always be using them. If I get goals which just have music over them instead I'll have to add the sound myself, and I'd prefer not to if I can.
If possible, please also turn the celebration control menu off. It's just so ugly and really gets in the way when trying to make a nice video. It’s not essential by any means, replays just look better without it.
Leave a post in here with a link to your goal, and the following details. (Thanks @PRO_TOO for the example )
Game mode: ML
Pass Assist: 1
Time of goal: 41:45 (if you're sharing an entire match, such as this example. Obviously just the goal is better!)
Once uploaded to xbox live you can find your goal on Gamedvr.com and post a link to it. Here's one of mine from PES 2018 as an example
If you REALLY want to, you could download it from Gamedvr then upload it to YouTube, but that's entirely up to you and certainly isn't required.
Link your goal on YouTube.
Link to your goal on YouTube.
If you're having problems uploading to YouTube in 1080p, you can also upload your goal to www.mediafire.com and share a link to it should you wish to. This is not a necessity though.
Goals can be submitted between now and Saturday 31st August.
I will then upload a video such as this one on (hopefully!) Monday 2nd August along with a poll for you to choose your favourite.
The winner will be announced at the beginning of the video for Septembers entries around Monday 30th September.
PRO_TOO's PS4 Pro!
No, I'm only joking, you win absolutely nothing except the praise from your fellow football fans
Tom is going to look into making some funky little badge that will be displayed on your avatar, you know, just for bragging rights.
Any questions please post them here, or PM me.
Let's try and keep these threads just for posting and talking about the goals!
So there you go! Get scoring, and get posting! If we can keep this going all season then the 'Goal of the Season' video next June or so will be epic.
