Still a good game, but....
I had this game about a year before the update, and I have to say I got completely hooked when I first played it. I got to level 55 or something by the time I stopped. But major issues remain in the game after the update. For example, I find that it is too easy to do ridiculously well in the conference level leagues, way too easy, in terms of shooting, dribbling etc, and if you do well you can get moved all the way up to the Championship in one season. This happened to me after the update, and once I was in the Championship it was just too hard. Players chased you down 6 times faster, it was so so hard to even get +1 point on anything after every game, even if I got say a goal and an assist from 5 chances, and NRG drinks and boots were taking up all my coins. Especially the in game play, everything about it is took difficult in the Championship for someone who's just got moved up from the Conference North. Basically, my point is that it's too easy to get moved up like 4 leagues at a time if you're at a lower league level, then it's too hard in leagues at Championship level.
Great Game, spoilt with in-app purchases
The gameplay and idea behind this are great. I played it a lot a year or so ago and loved it. Progress was well paced and it was great entertainment. However, recent updates have made it incredibly difficult to progress without in-app purchases. I really wouldn't mind paying a few pounds for this game. I paid to remove ads. But I really resent buying 'virtual items', especially ones that expire after a certain number of games. This seems to be a general trend amongst apps, especially games. Please just give me a whole game for a set price, not a hobbled version that requires pay-per-play! It seems like a triumph of capitalism over quality. This is by no means the only game to do this, but it's infuriatingly spoilt a game that is so close to being something brilliant. As for the game itself, it gets very difficult to progress out of league one / league two without in-app purchases. You require money to train (for energy), for special boots (otherwise your player isn't good enough), and for 'lifestyle items' otherwise you get unhappy and ridiculed by your team which undermines your performances. And unless you pay real cash, you don't get enough virtual cash to do all this. Such a shame!
A once great game ruined
The actual gameplay is very good, however the game itself has been ruined with the last couple of updates. This game used to be fantastic. Now it is impossible to keep up with refilling your players energy unless you pay real money for the in-app 'bux'. The price of the standard energy drink never stops rising and is now 136 in my game! I haven't actually been able to purchase any of the items in game (houses, car etc.) because all my 'bux' go on having to buy energy drinks, and with the most recent update I can't keep up with refilling energy as I simply cannot afford it (without in-app purchases of course). So for this reason I believe the game has been ruined due to the fact that you cannot progress later on in the game without in-app purchases. I would have happily payed £2.99 as a one off purchase to get the game to begin with instead of having to pay ridiculous prices for bux in the game. Hopefully the energy recovery is improved in a future update, although I highly doubt it. If anything it will probably get worse yet again.
