Patch Notes – New User Ladders and More! – Patch 2.3.0

Thisweek we are pleased to bring you a large patch with a whole new system designed to get new users playing competitively from their very first login!

Major Changes

New User Ladders

We’ve created a new way to play the game, to integrate new players into the game quicker & easier. There will be ladder tournaments running throughout the day, which now include bot clubs. These clubs are self-managed by the game and play every day. They start with a group of bot players, but will look to fill the line-up with trial contract players immediately. As part of the character creation tutorial, users will be displayed with 3 contract offers from bot clubs playing in the closest time-slots available.
Trial contract players will be able to renew their contract with the bot team through the notification system. If a player becomes inactive or their trial contract expires, the position will be re-advertised on the trial contract page. The system will ensure there is always a club available to join for every position in each ladder tournament.
Managers will be able to view the most active players on the transfer market page. Trial contract players can be signed instantly on full contracts.
