Default W5?

Hello and first of all, i would like to wish you happy christimas and also a happy 2020!

My question is, if Playa Games is going to launch a new soccer star server or is only thinking about SFGAME.

i personally think that there is no need for a new world

playa should first solve the problem with flash player ..

Thumbs down

I also agree with Bianco, there are several issues to solve, one of which is the flash player,
and without a new update, there's no reason to open a new world,wouldn't change at all !..

Created accounts on W4.soccerstar.com after 10 full months: 4030.
Created accounts on W37.sfgame.net after 1 month: 150,038.

You do the maths.

Its actually unbelievable that a Comic game has more players than a football game.

But it shows very well, that literally everything went wrong with SoccerStar.

With better Company politics, such a thing would never happen lol

I would think you underestimate the amount of people that play "Comic" games. There's literally 10s of YouTubers making video's on the game and getting very decent views on them. SF is way more thought out than SoccerStar, has pretty much monthly content updates and they actually seem to give a crap about the players on there, because guess what? They earn them money as it's their most popular game by a countrymile.

From a business perspective shutting down SoccerStar makes sense, even if everything prior to the shutdown went wrong (Which it did). It's probably costing them more to keep the servers running, keep people employed for the server maintenance and payment system, than they have revenue coming in from star sales.

Of course there are Youtubers playing SF. Guess what. They get paid for it lol.

And obviously SF is way more attractive than SoccerStar, because of how the game is handled by Playa.


I understand the business and and it definetely makes sense to shut down this game. Im just talking about the desicions which were made a few years ago., which led to this end.

EDIT: And yeah, maybe Im underestimating Comic games. But you know by yourself that 4k Players for a Football game are just incredible bad.

Running a game is expensive, even without updates. Just having a payment system costs money. There are fees for offering credit card, Paypal, SMS etc. payments.

S&F is still alive because of the vast amount of players. When a new server is launched, more players sign up in the first two hours than the total of SoccerStar players in an entire week.

S&F is special because of the art style and World of Warcraft reference whereas SS is unique for the gameplay, but still "only another football-themed browser game". Competition is tough with a ton of games. Do you know how many match 3-games are out there? Our game Tiny Island is cool (my personal opinion), but there are so many similar games out there.

S&F is mainly played by adults and a lot of die hard-gamers, but among SS players, there are a lot of young players and children who never buy stars.

We discussed many months how to keep SS alive, even thought about a Remastered version without Flash, but coding everything from scratch and new art is costly and simply not possible without enough profit to finance everything.
