Exciting Ideas ,

Solid and excited to see the future

This game is truly remarkable when it comes to its ability to combine fun and challenging gameplay with an in depth simulation of managing a football club. This alone makes this game an amazing experience for me the only things that could Improve this game are.
1. Having the ability to manage a national team.
2. More customization of club kits and crest etc.
3. Manager transfers or the ability to manage another team.
Also an extra thing that could be interesting would be the the ability to select a location or city that your team plays in and have certain rival teams which can correspond (teams from the same city or area or maybe a team who tend to beat you ) these rival teams would serve as extra objectives and could be used to make playing in the lower leagues in the beginning of the game more interesting as playing a rival team could mean could mean losing or gaining a large amount of trust from the fans or board. This same affect could be used if I player was bought from or sold to a rival club.

How?! You guys went from an amazingly fun game with New Star Soccer, to an even more fun, slightly different 3D version(which is perfect, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And if it’s just a little worn out then a little upgrade never hurt did it?!)!! And the best part is that this game you can play for hours on end and never once have to worry about paying or having to get off to get energy back or something!! This company truly is a modern marvel, and should be considered the ideal model for other companies to follow. What I love is that they seriously brought every issue that they had to the table with NSS and clearly, they said “what can we do right now to either fix this, or to make it more fun?” And they absolutely nailed it! Easily the best game I’ve ever played. So far no bugs, no glitches, just another excellent game created by this company. Can’t wait for more from them! Thank you so much!

Having a bit of an issue

New Star Manager is one of the best sports manager games out there. Every aspect of the app is good. The you you buy a player or staff member is good. The way you upgrade a player of staff member is good. The way you upgrade a building is not the best because it gets very expensive very quickly, but other than that I like it. The only thing I will criticize is the way you play the actual games. I don’t like how you only play short clips of the game, rather than the whole thing. And I guess I get how it’s supposed to be more of a managing game than a player game, but it’s just something to think about.

My main issue is that starting yesterday, when I open the app within a few seconds a white screen comes up, and it doesn’t go away. I’m not sure if it has to do with the update that happened yesterday, or something else. Either way I can’t play the game, and it’s driving me crazy. This game is definitely my favorite game at the moment, and now I can’t play it at all. Please do something about this as soon as possible. For now I am downloading another manager game to play, so that should give you some encouragement to fix it.
