I think we need to convert some more forumers :)

I did look this up in the App Store after you both waxed lyrical about it but I read the reviews ... They all pretty much said the same thing which is - great game, very enjoyable,then you get promoted & smashed each week unless your prepared to spend real money on IAP don't bother

That kinda put me off as I dislike purchasing 'upgrades' but it seemed these were more of a necessity than a luxury

Well I'm on brink of promotion so I'll see how it goes, in fact mathematically I'm already up first just going thru last few games.  Have watched some vids to get coins and some of other games look quite decent too so may try them out if this goes downhill fast after going up

Does sound ominous.

One thing on the reviewers & not to sound negative towards them or even justifying my liking the game - were these the ones that wanted instant gratification & wanted to get promoted year one year automatically?

It would probably be the same if people were reviewing UT seasons, saying that they should automatically win D1 the moment they have been promoted to from D10.

Don't want to sound like everything replicates RL as close as possible, but it would be a good touch (more realistic) to actually struggle in the next division.



Nice ones Eric - I'll check my players too and see what they look like.

I may have a reason to create a Facebook account :P.

Yeah I also wd reserve judgement on that as these reviewers cd be kids or maybe kiwi puts it better.  I mean I don't expect back to back promotions necessarily.  Usually when a team goes up the first aim is to consolidate and not go back down.  Anyway I've one game to go in the division which is due shortly so will let you know how it goes.

Ok quick update.  Played 2 games, won first one lost 2nd and didn't have great chance to win it.  Got more coin than ever ~90k but problems now, seems like my entire team is f*cked, really need a nutritionist but can't afford one.  Had a def on bench for a gd few games but doesn't seem to be recovering fitness.  Will see what I can do later but maybe I have hit something of a dead end for now.  Cd no doubt buy a new player with my coin but way it looks I prob need 2 or 3.  Hmm.

Yeah - probably have to leave them overnight now. The game is geared for that fairly lengthy layoff.

Kid just won the league - got 15k, 100 Rep, no gold. Not much actually ::)

Lol have the wheels came off already.  Well after a bit of a break, travelled down to Swansea for a training course at work for this week, i went back on it and my players were reasonably fit so subbed in my slightly better players and tried again.   Not done too well, lost my next couple matches, you really really have to take your chances at this level, div 4 lol, and some of them are bloody hard too, a good bit further away or about 3 bodies immediately in front of you, not much room for error.   Lol just gonna persevere anyway and try not to get relegated.   The other thing ive noticed is that your opponents have more spirit than in div 5, which might or might not make a difference.

As im not caring a whole lot i went into my last match with no practice, so no spirit, lost 3-1, didnt take my chances, blah blah blah.   Yep played about 6 games now and its not looking good, sat in relegation zone, but its hard when ive probably not been able to field my best lineup fully fit in any given game.   Meh, anyways knackered now will see what to do tomorrow.

downloaded Remember Me (free for PS Plus members during January) and I am pleasently surprised by this game. It is a mix between some platforming and hack & Slash packed in a good story (I am only in chapter 3).

refreshing game from the old master of CAPCOM

Didn't play at all during the day today. Just got on and decided to see what D4 would be like. However, I stupidly decided to upgrade players beforehand. Did not realise that the upgrade on the keeper would take 45 min :o. Not impressed.

Also, I see that the points required for 'spirit' have increased to 8 k now. Ok then. Managed to get 7 - not bad to my opponent's 3 and playing at an upgraded home stadium (16k capacity), I thought I had a chance. Nope - lost 1-3. Still, first game of the season ...

Decided to practice and play another quickly - opponent is Genova - they were promoted with me. At home again and spirit was 6 vs his 1 thus looking for a good performance. Missed a cross dismally, but found some form to win 3-1 with a pretty poor miss from my side - would've been nice to get the 4th.

Was happy to win but think that the opponent was weak in comparison to the first one. I can definitely start to see that in app purchases will have to be made to do a lot better. One thing that will frustrate me will be the time taken for the higher end upgrades to the players ... 45 min is just way too long IMO. And this is around that 40% of the attribute done.

Without speeding that up  it will be like playing one game, maybe 2 per day!

Thanks for the headsup Sherlock on NSS - will try it out.

Quick one re NSS ... Great game, thanks Sherlock. Initially thought I had downloaded the bring app. But there is a lot to this game!

Played 4 games - unfortunately one I wasn't picked for as my energy was too low. Thought I could 'energy up' before but the boss didn't pick me & was furious. Oops.

Game after next I got 5 assists and a headed goal. Rating was 10.0. This can really get quite addictive.

Did you try out Contrast last month Glad? Pretty interesting game, as was Resogun, very, very old school in the object of the game but very futuristic looking. Like an updated version of Space Invaders :D
Jaja WAS the silver Ibra. :(

Ok so football kicks has died a bit of a death for me at the moment due to whats previously been discussed.   I looked up that NSS game but the reviews on that say the same thing, was great fun but now developer gone down 'freemium' route and you have to pay 69p every couple of days to stay in the game.

I dont like being sheperded into paying money for stuff i have no real intention of paying money for.  Might have to look around try find some other good games for the phone that dont try to siphon your hard earned cash off you.   Im not a child, these tactics dont work on me lol.   Will look for something else and check reviews before downloading.

Might try an RPG, hack n slash style game, might give that Dragon Age a try.

Not altogether dead Eric.

Interesting one that I focused on upgrading players during season 1 & that might've paid dividends. After 4 games (played 2 this morning) sitting mid-table (2-0-2).

Still not getting the people through the turnstiles though - capacity of 16,000 but no more than 8,500 attendance. Had about 40k before the last player-upgrades and the keeper around the 40 rating.

Will probably keep trying it given not much too lose. Just won't be able to zoom through a season in 2 days, given the duration of those player upgrades. In the immortal words of Yoda ... Patience you must have ...



Re: NSS ... wow! Hopefully Sherlock can confirm the 'stay in' fee. That's freakin' nuts to have that in play.
