2014 FIFA WORLD CUP (FROM THE GROUND UP)

THE 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP: BRAZIL

I will be recreating the 2014 FIFA World Cup using the 2014 FIFA World Cup: Brazil video game as my simulator. I will not be controlling either team, it will be a pure CPU vs. CPU simulation with nothing changed besides the halves going from 5 to 10 minutes. Only change I have made is by randomly drawing the pairings and groups, just to give the match-ups a little different feel! However if a team withdrew in real life, then they will be withdrawn here unless they're in the game. For those of you who followed my first adventure; the 2010 World Cup, expect the same detail but even more this time around! The 2010 journey saw Germany win the World Cup. Will the trophy stay there for 4 more years or will it change hands? Only time will tell.

Here is a quick Q&A to answer any questions.

Q: What does from the ground up mean?
A: I will be recreating each confederation qualifying from the preliminaries all the way to the World Cup Final.

Q: Why CPU vs. CPU?
A: I feel that this game is a great representation of the game and I personally like watching CPU vs. CPU. You never know what the result is going to be, just like on the pitch in real life. *Some info* The qualification competition for the 2014 FIFA World Cup is a series of tournaments organised by the six FIFA confederations. Each confederation the AFC (Asia), CAF (Africa), CONCACAF (North, Central America and Caribbean), CONMEBOL (South America), OFC (Oceania), and UEFA (Europe) was allocated a certain number of the 32 places at the tournament. A total of 203 teams entered the qualification competition, with Brazil, as the host, qualifying for the World Cup automatically.

Q: How will updates occur?
A: Different from my first adventure recreating the 2010 World Cup, updates will be much more detailed for these reports. They will also chronicle the individual story-lines along with week-to-week updates instead of waiting for a whole group to be finished.

Q: How will I know what is going on with all the games being played as a reader?
A: I will have information explaining every update on what is going on and I will try my best to make it clear what is happening so it is not jumbled and you folks are not confused. Most were happy with my 2010 report, so I won't mix it up too much.

Q: Will you be doing one confederation at a time?
A: Yes, until all 32 qualifiers have been selected.

Q: What are the confederations?
A: Each continent has its own football confederation, UEFA, CONMEBOL, CONCACAF, CAF, AFC, OFC.

Q: What about Red Cards, Lineups and Injuries?
A: Red cards yellow cards and injuries will all be dealt with as they normally are in real life. A red card means immediate ejection and you miss the next competition. The recaps will provide all the details on what happens in every game during the qualifying process and the World Cup. In terms of squads, I will do my best to represent real life situations and go from there. Try to mix it up as it happens, just like in real life.
