  1. Good game but need to be improved because people spend real money and time on it..

    Well first on ball at ICONS SPOTLIGHT that star or what ever it is is like a PENTAGRAM and thats not aloud in one game that plays all religions..

    Improve FORMATION that we could make one or OWN and KITS we should have a chance to pick one BY OUR SELF not random..
    Also for some coins we should have a chance for some NATIONAL flags or KITS..
    also time for tournament should not be so long (make it shorter than all players will play)

    Also improve game play..when will finally auto play stop because it does have no sense..then player will really need to play the game witch is better..Because that’s what Football is..

  2. I started a league tournament last season (2019). This tournament exists now in 2020 and my friends who were in in it last season are still there. But it seems I no longer have the moderator powers. When I’m in my league dashboard and I click on Tournaments and then I go to click on the button that normally says “Find Opponent,” it says “Waiting for Tournament” instead. Help! 🙁

  3. My friend can’t locate me because I have an apostrophe in my name. When my friend or I click on the apostrophe button it doesn’t show up. Nothing happens. We are in the same league but there is not way for us to add each other as a friend there. The other problem is his name is Dan and there are 1,000s of Dans out there so I can’t locate him.

  4. I bought one of the Independence Day special (1.99), have the receipt, but the new player did not show up in my team. Please advise on how to get him listed.

    Thank you!

  5. If I apply a skill boost to a player that I later sell on the market will those enhanced traits or attributes be transferred to the new owner of that player, because currently OVR no longer changes for that player?

  6. I created a league and tried to invite my friend to join. I used ‘invite member’ to find my friend and it showed my friend. However I’m not be able to invite him. How can I solve it?
