Tips for maximum success in the World Cup

World Cup time equals winning time! As a Football-Stars lover, you have been busy participating in our new Ranking-Challenges.  The benefits are pretty clear – you can play for free. However, you may have noticed winning is much harder due to the higher number of participants.

So, if you want to earn more Coins, we recommend that you play certain selected challenges rather than use all your coins on every challenge. The number of participants is significantly lower, which increases your chance of winning. In addition, there is always the chance to earn cool Stars, which you can redeem in the Reward Shop. Our tip: concentrate on challenges that feature teams you are familiar with, and can safely bet Coins on.

Even greater gains come in our “You vs. kicker”-Challenges, which usually take place weekly. If you win these duels against “kicker,” you are automatically placed in a pot for a chance to win a hot prize. Currently, for the World Cup, you can receive high quality DFB-Merchandise.

One last thing: You can edit your lineup in all World Cup Challenges until just before kickoff. If you like to watch the World Cup in a beer garden, Fan Mile, or bar, we recommend the Football Stars Challenges App on iOS- and Android. If you live in Berlin, here are some tips for public viewing!

We wish you and your friends the best of luck and much joy in facing our challenges during the World Cup! 🙂

The Season’s Eleven

The 2017/18 Bundesliga season is over – except for one thing: The Season’s Eleven. 3 players from Bayern, 2 from Hoffenheim, 2 from Leverkusen, and one from Gladbach, Schalke, Augsburg, and Stuttgart build this dream team. Logically, the team is composed predominately of the European Cup qualifiers. Of the eleven players, more than half are of German nationality. With Kimmich, Ginter, and Brandt, there are three current national players and potential World Cup participants.

Speaking of national players: Our MVP of the Season, the Brasilian, Naldo, was not nominated for his country’s World Cup squad, which is incomprehensible, at least from a performance perspectibve. The 35 year old Schalke defensive chief protected without compromise and stepped forward 7 times to score goals. Sorry, dear Dortmund Fans, but the golden goal causing the 4:4 tie during the Wahnsinns Derby in November 2017 alone qualifies him for this award. He also has an unsurprassed score. Congratulations on this outstanding season! You can find all the other judgements and decisions about the eleven in our Kicker-Article!

Community Record Breakers: 95 managers become “Kicker-Conquerors”

“Best in class,” “new era,” “record result” – these headlines did not grace the gazettes on Monday after the world class effort of the Football-Stars-Community. However, these superlatives were very appropriate, after the effort and grit they showed their peers the last game day. With their lineups in the “You vs. Kicker”-Challenge many managers persevered against the expert’s teams. The challenge this time was to choose which eleven German players would do the best on the last Bundesliga match day of the season . 95 managers succeeded in the challenge and received the title of “Kicker-conquerors.” If you think you are one of these managers, you can check when looking at the Ranking! 🙂

You can find more information about the choices amd the top formations on the Kicker-Website!
