Please note that the following guide is made for beginner players, by fellow players.
When you start the game and after all the updates and downloading, whether or not to play as a guest or a registered HIVE user, then enter your nickname. After that the character selection screen will appear.
You can choose either Sam or Noa. Both Sam and Noa are strikers. The only differences are their starting team, trainer, and stats; though both function almost identical with almost identical effects. Really, it's just about preference. If you do want some kind of advantage however, one of Noa's starting units (Wayne) can be very rare, but won't really influence your gameplay.
You will be shown their starting team and trainer along with their stats before being forced to choose. Sam is from Legend Tiger so his Guide will be Selena, while Noa, from The Champions, will have Eve as her Guide (the guide who will show up is the girl in the main menu).
Both character's starting teams are similar, so don't worry. You can always change your team members/ace later. After you've selected your member, you will jump into a tutorial screen. Both trainers have the same effect. Most basic trainers provide passive stats to players and a +3 ST bonus every 4 hours, but you have to confirm it.
Follow the tutorial from Eve (or Selena if you've chosen Sam) you will learn game mechanics and content.
The Sponsor provides a small amount of gold boost for every battle you partake in and 3000 gold every 4 hours. You can get her from the mission free match [1-14] to get her you need to get a score of at least 7600 or more. Don't bother wasting exp/gold evolving you only get 1.5k more gold per use, only improves the skill and you have to use 100k+ exp to hit level 30. She loses her bra when evolved though... so there's that.
Your soccer team consists of 10 Players + 1 Friend/Assist
There are 3 Forward, 3 Midfielders, 3 Defenders, and 1 Goalkeeper along with a Friend/Assist that can enter any position but Goalkeeper.
In Galaxy League (PvP), which is unlocked at level 10, you can use 11 of your own players. If you don't have enough players on your team, you won't be able to start the game. This team will be on your 5th team slot.
- If you want to level up your players, go to Shop > Match and buy a Penguin match that attribute's matches with the player you want to level up. While it cost some crystals, Penguin matches offer a lot of EXP and decent amount of gold. Just buy them wisely so you don't end up wasting all your crystals.
- Training a material player of the same attribute of the selected player will grant a 50% boost. Make sure to always use it to your advantage.
- Don't waste any Glory Points (GP) trying to get any 3 star trainers, scouts, or sponsors. You will get many of the trainers from the free match rewards. You will get Lohengrin and other managers easily through re-challenging Story Mode. You can swap managers to make use of their passives. The managers' active skills will get reset every time you swap them, but it's not worth worrying if the effect is dismissible (e.g. 3BP).
- It is recommended that you buy some inventory slots (as you need them).
- There are tons of upgrading materials and Swirly cards which you will eventually get. The Swirly cards give a random stat boost if fed to a player card. Save the Swirly cards for 5-star units and above as these are far harder to train and level than the 4-star or lower cards. Be careful as they work with a % success rate which is shown when you add a swirly. You may need to add more than 1 swirly to succeed, and even at 90% you can still fail. This makes it advisable to aim for 100% (either 1 5-star swirly or many smaller swirlies). Do this wisely, as feeding Swirlies can be a major gold sink.
- Don't forget that you can either feed 3-star units to other units or sell them for twelve Glory Points (GP) each. It is highly recommended that you sell these 3-star cards instead of sacrificing them because Glory Points are extremely valuable. Scouting with GP will be your most reliable source of good players.
- You can check an enemy team's ability in the screen before starting. This may help you adjust your team to beat the opponents, if your team's abilities are nearly the same as the enemies.
