I looked for this information in the documentation and in the forum, but I did not find it. When does the World Tour start? For example, I am playing now during week 27, 2008. I'd not really noticed the date until now. Did the game start at Week 1, 2008 by default? Is there any control of this without adversely affecting my career, etc.? Would it be possible to be playing in 2009, or would this be a bad idea? The weeks go by so quickly that I will probably soon be in 2009, anyway. I was just trying to understand more about how this works.
