(French translation pending)
First of all let’s define game types. We can talk about three kind of it:
Network: You can call it online-career game too. When you find other human players (your friends, or people from a forum), everybody choose a team, and play against the computer plus sometimes against each other through seasons.
It is hard to find a timeslot when all of your friends can play with you.
You will be a rockstar only for your friends, or you have to build a community (on Facebook or Twitter) to share your career with the others.
So online FM at GOCLand is not network game!
You can play online versus game only with a purchased game!
In a ladder, any participant may challenge another.
Write to your opponent before challenge her/him! The challenge may be rejected by the challenged if they choose, so it is better to challenge only those who can play with you.
You and your opponent can not play with the same team, so you have to agree with your opponent about the teams. If it is hard for you to agree , then you can give a team order to each other, for example:
Your list: Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City
Your opponent list: Real Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester City
The first difference between you and your opponent list is at the third team, so you will play with Barcelona, and you your opponent will play with Bayern Munich.
Or you can use our pot system too.
Now you have to agree who will create the game, and who will join.

The initial result is determined by the aggregate score of the two played matches. You will play one match at home and the other one at away. For example: Your team is Barcelona, and your opponent’s team is Real Madrid. You win at home to 3:1, and lose away to 1:2, then the final result of these two matches is 4:3, so you are the winner.
Away goals count only in cup games, but draw allowed in ladders. If you loose away to 0:2 at the second match, then the final result would be 3:3, but your opponent scored a goal at your home, so she/he is the winner, and the submitted result have to be 3:4.
