May 20, 2024, 8 PM (JST) Update Release
Beta Test Demo ver.1.1.0 Planned Revisions and Additions

  • Addition of "Story Mode"

    Unlocked the Story Mode in the title menu, allowing you to experience the story of a new protagonist, Destin Billows.

    The first chapter adapted for the demo version, "You Still have Football," is now playable.

  • Addition of the "Player Guidebook" (Updated 05/20)

    Added the "Player Guidebook" to the title menu. Inside, the "Scene Archives" allow you to replay previously-viewed visual scenes.
    In the demo, only the endings of each mode are available.

  • Implementation of a Penalty for Improper Disconnects

    • Any player who disconnects improperly automatically loses, and the opponent is awarded the victory.
    • Even if the game is disconnected midway, the player who did not disconnect keeps all items acquired up to that point.
      * The items obtained by the player who is judged to have disconnected improperly are confiscated. If the match ends during the first half, neither player receives experience points. If the first half has concluded, the player who didn't cause the disconnect receives halfthe experience points.
    • A message is displayed depending on the situation of the disconnect:
    • [When an improper disconnect is detected]
      [When an opponent disconnects]

    If repeated improper disconnects occur within one hour, the player will be temporarily banned from online matches for a certain duration.

    1st Offense: Warning message displayed
    2nd Offense: 5 minutes banned from online matches
    3rd Offense: 10 minutes banned from online matches
    4th Offense: 15 minutes banned from online matches...
    * For offenses from the 2nd one onwards: (Number of offenses - 1) × 5 minutes ban from online matches.

  • Addition of the "Concede" Function During Matches

    To remove incentives for intentional disconnects, if you determine that there is no chance of winning, you're now able to choose to Concede to legitimately end the match at any point.

    When a match ends due to a player conceding, both players keep any items already obtained.
    If the match ends during the first half, neither player will receive experience points.
    If the first half has concluded, the winning player will receive half the experience points.

  • Measures Against Lag in Online Matches

    • The amount of data transmitted has been reduced to approximately 10%.
    • We have optimized the program to be more resilient against lag.

    When turning on the Advantage Judgement setting in lobby matches, in case of a tie, the winner will be decided based on an official set of rules and an evaluation of the players' performance for the match.
    * This setting applies to all matches in the lobby if any participant or spectator has it enabled.
