Beginning of our story

Greetings, footballers!

Hope you’re all doing well. We know you’ve been waiting for some sort of clarification from our side and we thought now is the perfect time to do it. We also understand this page will be visited by users who haven’t heard about us, so we will try to shed as much light as possible on our project. Now, without further ado, let’s cut to the chase.

What is going on here?

Some of you are not only familiar with the concept of our game but have also been occasionally teased by us. This part is mainly aimed at those who are new here. For the past few months, we have been working on a mobile game which can be placed in the ‘football manager’ category, although instead of controlling the whole team you will only be in charge of one footballer and that’ll be your in-game character. You will have the ability to create your own club or join an existing team, the first option means more responsibility but also more control, which is important because there’s plenty of things that can be done within the club, for example, improving the infrastructure which affects club finances. There are also elements of RPG built in the game like item upgrade system, which is extremely important for character development. The objective is to supply you with necessary tools and see what you can come up with, are you going to lead your club to the glory or are you going to focus on individual achievements? Whichever path you decide to choose, we will ensure to make it exciting and worth staying a while.

Who are we?

We are a tiny but ambitious team whose goal is to develop and release a product attractive to a lot of users. We have known each other for a couple of years and discussed about creating a game together many times, however there was always something stopping us from doing it. Nonetheless, after months of productive discussions, we have finally managed to get together and started working on a project, which is now known as fballers (short for footballers). Between us, we have a couple of years of experience in project planning, development, and management. We have successfully delivered web and mobile projects (including games) in the past either as project managers or staff members, and now we’re hoping to do the same.

What is our plan?

The main aim is to release a game focused on and around football, however at the same time make it interesting to those who are not necessarily football fans. It is certainly a huge challenge, but we believe it can be achieved with the right decisions, a little bit of effort and hard work. Further, we promised ourselves this game would be free 2 play (F2P) and also that we would not heavily rely on pay 2 win (P2W) aspects either. We are hoping to implement cosmetic and superficial features, as opposed to game producers who often offer in-game resources and quickly turn their games into P2W. This is another huge challenge that we have to face and overcome but we belong to the group of believers who think this can be done.

When you can expect to see content from the game?

As it stands, we don’t have any official timeline or roadmap that we could share with you, however we do have content to publish. There is a lot of aspects that we’re still working on as well as constantly changing, and we feel like sharing unofficial and unfinished content wouldn’t be fair. But nothing to worry about, we are planning to release some screenshots and game content in the next few weeks, it’s just that we are unable to provide specific dates as of yet. All game content will be published on our Discord server and in the news section of our landing page. Stay tuned and you won’t be disappointed.

Communication is key

We believe communication is key to everything, therefore we are open to any suggestions or discussions regarding our project. The more input and feedback we gather from you, the better the end product is going to be. After all, we are creating this game for you, so we would like to make sure you have your say during the development process. This is why we’ve decided to create a Discord server and share it with everyone, we’re hoping that improved transparency and open communication will be one of many reasons to convince you to stay with us for a long time. Just like football clubs wouldn’t exist without fans, games wouldn’t exist without gamers.

Growing our community

As previously mentioned, community is very important to us, we’re looking forward to building a strong relationship with all users and turning our Discord into one huge family. To make sure everyone feels welcomed and included, we have created non-English channels for those who find it difficult to fluently communicate in English. Further, the most active non-English channels will get their own sections and sub-channels, so don’t be afraid to join our Discord server because we will do everything we can to make it feel like home. We’re happy to keep expanding the server, so if you have any ideas or perhaps you speak a language that doesn’t have its own section just let us know!

Moreover, in order to keep you in the loop, we plan to organise AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions once every two weeks on our Discord. During the AMA sessions, you'll have opportunity to ask questions and discuss your concerns regarding the project. Specific times and dates will be provided at later stages via the news feed.

Regards, team fballers
