Improvements needed

Great game could a bit harder to win some games against equal sides are just to easy.

Would liked to be able to choose to play domestic competitions other wise it’s a great game.

Easy and Hard

There’s unfortunately no middle line when it comes to difficulty.

Amateur level = you winning by 50 plus points to 0 the AI can’t even attack properly and to defend you just need to watch and do nothing. Way to easy!

Semi - Pro = you winning by 1 try if you lucky and the AI with 0 or maybe a try on som occasions. You find yourself trying to defend 80% of the time and when you do have the ball you can’t find any gaps to run through. As you get closer to the line the AI just turns the ball over and kicks it up the field only for you to realize half the match is gone. Final scores end up so low and matches are boring. Least the AI can attack in this mode but still challenging as they keep the ball forever.
