    Injecting this update in the game must not be intended. Many people don't like to play matches with stars, WHY the game need to force them that.

    Another thing, I bought many packages from the store before related to Bux & Gems, so what will be FTG decision in returning back our money since no use for money now for me. Additional to that, if people don't have bux, how will they upgrade their players, FTG will force them to buy packages to get bux for that upgrade (L9 to Max is 100,000 Bux). Not everyone have the ability to buy stuff from the store.

    Also, giving your captain to friends to assist you with Bux in higher arena will disappear, so many good relation which was built because of the game will disappear.

    FTG need to review this

    Makes no sense! I don't want to play for stars! I just want to play the game! Unlock the previous arenas!!! What's wrong with you? 800 reward on arena 7? Are you serious? Unlock the previous arenas and give reward money back! It will take forever to upgrade players!!! Please!!!

    Thanks for the feedback folks. We understand this new way of playing is quite different from the way you'll be used to, but we hope it will be just as much fun in the long run. Moving from a wager (playing to win opponent's Bux) mechanic to a free play mechanic put more emphasis on earning Bux from your packages, friends' bonuses and Events, as well as your wins. You should also find that the Bux in the packages becomes more meaningful even when you're at higher Arenas. Although these seem like really small Arena reward amounts, for the average player there won't be much difference in net Bux inflow.

    As usual, we actively monitor Score! Match to look for improvements, and we're happy to receive more suggestions, though we can't promise we'll implement them.

    This update will force people who is playing seriously and don't like to lose, to promote to Arena 10 and they have low level captain & they are not ready for that. Then, they will get stuck with powerful players. In this time, he will be in a loop up & down till he has the luck to upgrade his players.

    Previously, the people was playing in certain Arena and when they are ready to the next step, they promote. FTG was not forcing anyone to promote to next Arena.

    Can we have explanation for that??.

    Also, when you increase the player upgrade 2.5X, how the people who already lost all their money can upgrade player L9 to L10 costing 250,000 for example with this methodology of gaining money.

    Another thing,the major complain right now regarding the GK behavior. I think quick update need to be done for that because people losing game for a silly mistake from the GK.\

    Thanks for your continuous support and this nice game.

    Whoa, wait a minute, don't they inform at the top that: "With the new values, progression is easier to understand, and you’ll be able to keep playing in your highest Arena possible, no matter how many defeats you experience."

    But... wait another minute - it just doesn't make sense.  You are strictly forced to promote because you can't play just for fun. So - let's make it clear - you win 10 games and then you loose 10 games on purpose in order not to get promoted. Since I was "abducted" by "live test", I didn't play more that couple games per day (in order just to gain goal packages and level packages), before - I was playing much more games having fun from this game.

    So, trying to explain it to you, you have to pay for the game to buy bux, because when you get promoted, your 6 or 7 level players will be eaten alive by 9 or 10 level monsters. It sounds silly because some people have rich budgets collected before this "unique" update (me for instance). So it completely changes everything, some players really can feel cheated.

    Also, when you increase the player upgrade 2.5X, how the people who already lost all their money can upgrade player L9 to L10 costing 250,000 for example with this methodology of gaining money.

    Go back to previous sentence - you are forced to invest in the game.

     

    Generally, it looks like nobody has a concept of this game at the start and now someone is trying ineptly to save this whole entertainment. With rather pitiful result...

    According to me the last update was good but i think that there are some problems:
    - i think that was a good idea to play only in 1 arena but i think also that you have to find another motivation/purpose for the player besides the stars (like infinite stars or many more arenas after 10+, and match will be against players of the same arena, not 10 vs 10+);
    - 1 arena only for training, and so without bux or stars;
    - if you play only in 1 arena can't unblocked all the players of the team or other thing like smile, shoes, T-shirt, etc;
    - all Gk more strong, now they do a lot of mistakes;
    - other formation like 4321, 424, 3412; 4312, 541, 5131;
    - possibility to have two players for each role;
    - the match without limits of goal but only with time limite: 2 minutes.
    - possibily to buy players with the bux.

    This are some ideas that i and my Friends thought... Thanks for all... Good work...

    it would also be nice to be able to change the names of the players of your team but these are minimal details

    Hi all,

     

    Some answers to some of your questions/statements:

    - iOS will be with all players within the next few days

    - We will take a look at GK behaviour. This is not a "hidden" update, but sometimes unexpected things can happen.

    - You may find that you have a few easy or tough matches in a row, as all players will be finding the right arena for their skill and team quality, please don't be put off by this.

    - Don't feel you have to spend lots just to stay in an Arena you've just been promoted to. It's not a race, so be prepared to move up and down a bit while you strengthen your team. This happens with teams in real football too.

    - Thanks for the other suggestions, we'll consider them!

    One question still no answer for it:
    If L9 player lost his money before the update and now need to upgrade his captain by around 250K, how can he do it with the existing Arena prize?

    There are some good changes and some other ones :)

    It's good that you can not be so quickly stopped playing because you ran out of bux.

    The game has gotten harder with the new changes. Defending is harder and tackles go wrong much more. It's harder to play nice football because everything is so closed. Best football are open matches. No one likes a game with 35 tackles and hoping that one will turn out lucky for you. We want nice passes, perfect runs, driblles and awesome shots at goal and nice saves.

    Why make winning bux harder when all the other changes involve paying more bux? People like to evolve quick and some will pay for it but it should be possible for people with no money (children) to play the game also at a slower pace. Nobody plays just to loose every game because your players are not good enough.

    Why make arena 10+ harder when you can create arena 11, 12,...?

    Some good idea's been given here but the best is the freedom to give ALL your players a name. It is so much more fun/realistic to have players you like and control them.

    Buying players with bux is also a good idea just as buying new shirts. Why not let the players design their own shirt? How cool would it be to play in the shirt you play in yourself in the real world? Now there are some really rediculous shirts one would only tolerate at freakshows.

    Why not let players change their formation more freely. Now you can have players who are not ideal for the formations you have and the formation you want can be very far away...just because you are unlucky.

    I can live with one arena for winning bux and gems but we really need 1 arena for practice. Now we can't play just for fun or practice new formations. Now you must loose games not to get promoted to a league where you do not have the players for, that doesn't make sense.

    Why is there a counten on winning streak and max wins if it is meant to end at 50% for everybody? The incentive to get a higher percentage was just one of the fun things in the game. If you are obliged to promote and loose a lot of games because your team is not ready, this feels unfair.

    I hope FTG considers these ideas so the game get's fun again for everybody.

    This was the worst idea ever. The low amounts on the arenas makes it no fun. Please change this. More options on what you want to bet. Playing for 600 bux is useless. I don't even care if I lose. I literally have lost interest in playing the game. I played about 50-70 games a day and since the money amounts changed I played one game and closed it because I didn''t care. PLEASE!!!!

    Well said guys! I have played more than 5000 matches. On the bus, on the car, waiting for my wife... everywhere!

    Today I played 2. Just for the packages! No fun, little money and I advanced to the new arena. So, unexpectedly I got a new player! He takes now more of the packages while I was waiting forever to upgrade other players.

    Let me rephrase. I don't want to move. I want to move once I have upgraded my players! I dont't want new players! If so I want to choose who get the upgrade, not the system! I want the previous rewards! Not 700bux on level 7! That's crazy!

    Personally I still don't get it... play at the arena you belong, lose a thousand matches so as not to enter new arena and perhaps take as a "gift" a useless player who will benefit from the packages...

    I remind you! I have played more than 5000 matches! I'm not someone new at the game! But the new update really sucks FTG! Sorry to mention that but I really don't care if both teams share a "Hovarth" or not! Changing the names doesn't make a difference! But advancing arenas, for luck or skill, and facing MONSTERS going that way up and down is crazy! I want to play at an arena I want even if the money is little! But not 700! It was 7500! And the arena 8 was 15000. And now it is 700?!!?!?!!??!?!?!

    Come on... is this a joke?

    And something last! I've spent all day trying to downgrade the app with no luck thus losing 5 hours!

    Sorry for continuing but really I don't feel like playing any more! You've ruined all the fun! This is perhaps the first night I didn't even run the game. Seems useless anymore. Nevermind the REAL money I've spent on the game. Well FTG, thanks for nothing...

    "Advance" they said... "it will be fun" they said!

    Shame on you guys! Good job...! Keep it up!

    Most toxic game update ever.

    Once you're promoted, that's it, it's all on stars now, no just chilling and having a friendly game to pass time, every game kind of 'means something'.

    'll just play less, not bother about the daily goals thing and just play for events, suppose its more time to do things more constructive in my life.

    Bye random matches - I spent a good time with you

    Open up a friendly match arena for all those who just want to play for fun, not for stars. There should however be no bux or packages rewards for playing there. 

    The argument that people do not want to promote because they have to face "monsters" in the new division does not hold up. If you are not fit for the next level, you will relegate again and can play lower ranked teams. After some time it will all balance out and the right teams will be in the right arena. Before the update, I actually had to play so often against these "monsters" because they would deliberately stay stuck at lower levels.

    I think the reason some of the folks above are complaining is that they prefer to crush teams with overpowered teams in lower arena's than to face some fair competition.

    And with regards to the costs of upgrading players, it is not strange that you have to work for this and that it needs time before you have the amount required to do this.

    Marc,

    Let's move with the method that every player will play in the right division:

    For example, I played matches and keep winning with team full of L6 & L7 then i reached to Arena 10. I will get  stars for around 6 to 7 matches in this Arena, I got crashed by the monsters there and lost the 7 matches and got relegated.

    Then I have one match to promote again to Arena 10 and the loop will continue till my team became L9, where will be the boxes & bux coming from since I win one match and lose 7 to 8 matches.

    There is will be closed loop for everyone which he will stuck in since his team won't be ready. The lower players who will be highly impacted with this Arena new methodology.

    Good move on upgrading goal keeper's performance on one on one unlike before where he'll just stand infront of the striker allowing him to score without defending.
    Horrible move👎👎👎: on making player upgrade coast so madly expensive yet giving little bux in arenas👹👹That does not make sense at all. It's gonna be almost impossible to promote.

    Again please improve players response when the ball is tossed high above towards them. They just stand still withou jumping or competing for the ball and allow the opponents to just take the ball with no challenge👎👎

    For regular players, in my case about a year with this game, you really need to give us an opportunity to convert our bux to gems, even if the rate is less than favorable. I played the game a lot, and racked up and saved a lot of bux for reason. In case I went on a bad streak or was overmatched in Arenas 10 or 10+, I didn't want to run out of money. So I played the game loyally, played it well, but now have 70M useless bux. Your game changes aren't really for long-time players, it's more a look towards how you want to keep the game popular moving forward. So how about you reward us old players and let me actually put that money to use (like using gems to get my captain finally upgraded to 10).

    Upgrading the keeper? They are better at some situation but complete idiots at other. When a deep ball is played they leave their goal but are too slow (by far) to get to the ball. This makes a 100% goal against and so I lost several games just because of this stupid behavior, even sevaral times in one game! Please fix this.

    I was in higher leagues even with players from lower league but could manage because of playing well. Now I loose a lot more and relegate to lower league, why???

    Why allow players to evolve their team or get teammates from friends with higher stats and than punish them? Why mention winning strikes/percentage if the goal is to get everybody at 50%?

    I feel FTG is too much interfering with the game. Why the loosing streaks if you just can let the quality of the players be the decisive and FAIR way to deal with difference between players?

    After the update I feel the game is less fun because playing just for fun is not possible anymore.

    Devs should consider opening two more arenas to play free - first to play with teams from the same league without any stars to win for example small amount of bux (e.g. 10% of bux that you can earn on each arena when playing for stars) and second to play not for bux and open to everyone (just free games for fun, without any risk). Without possibility to play for fun the game is useless.

    But I guess that the problem is - like always - with money (real money), changes are made to earn better and we are forced to go up and invest to fight with better opponents.

    I do not like the update. Players are either forced to promote (also if they do not want to) or to lose games intentionally. I would like to decide on my own how fast my development is. You may of course keep the new setup in general, but please re-open the lesser leagues, so that we can play without gaining/losing stars.

    FTG: the "Live Testing" now just seemed like a way to make it a reality, and it comes off like it doesn't matter what we say because you're just gonna do whatever you want. Please at least listen to your audience. Everyone is pretty much asking for a way to play casually. Open a type of arena where you play for no money (or maybe very little money) and that doesn't cost stars. I think you'll get a lot less complaints if you at least do that, and you'll get people wanting to invest in your game.

    I found myself playing this game a lot less now because of this update because it's never a casual game anymore. It's all about the stars.

    AI stuff has always been an issue for some people, and that can always be improved upon, but the arena lockout is def something that just doesn't make any sense.

    @eduardo mora,

    you couldn't have said it in a better way. 

    Seems, that FTG has a mind of it's own. You play? you go up or down! No more play for fun...!

    Don't want to lose or earn stars? don't play!

    Yesterday I won three matches and lost three intentionally! Yes... 3! All day long! i used to play more that 20! And yesterday I played 3 (if you ask I didn't play any today)

    I really don't get it... advance, lose or don't play at all! Where is the fun? I really don't get it. Ant you guys at FTG... nice job but hear your players - customers once in a while!

    Many Complains over their website & FB but still insisting that it is better for more people.

    FTG are saying that they have their tracking system to ensure more are enjoying!!!

    Really, they done great job before but after this update, they screwed it up.
