In the second part of our detailed GoalTycoon review, we will deal with the competitions that your team is going to participate and the bonuses that you will get from each one of them.
Your team is going to participate in the following competitions:
As we have seen in the previous review upon joining your team is assigned to the lower league of your country. Each country has different stages depending on the number of the teams each country has.
In the National League, in each subdivision, a number of 16 teams will participate. The games are played in 30 stages, on a home – away match system. Every season lasts 30 days.
Depending on the league in which your team is, the games will take place between 19.00 and 20.00 local time. You can check at what time your team is playing from the Schedule menu. The game lasts for 10 minutes with a 2-minute break between the two periods. If you are online during the live event you can make changes to your players, your tactics and boost your player’s energy by consuming energy drinks.
At the end of every season, a championship bonus will be distributed to all the teams of the Federation, at all the divisions a country has. The higher the division of your club and the higher the final ranking, the higher the bonus you will get.
The bonuses of the Greek first division, for example, are shown below. Each country has different bonuses.
Except from the bonus at the end of the season, each time your team wins a championship match you will get a victory bonus. Each team will receive this bonus according to its league. This bonus is the same for all teams, regardless of the ranking.
The bonuses of the Greek Federation, for example, are shown below. Each country has different bonuses.
Except from the bonuses the higher the division the higher the experience points your players will get for playing in matches. That is 0.5 points for the first division, 0.4 for the second etc. until that amount reaches the 0.1 points.
The National Cup is a football competition in which all the verified teams from your country participate. All the teams that have been active in one of the last 5 days before the competition begins will be able to participate. The matches from the National Cup will start between 16:00 and 17:00 local time of each country. If in the 90th minute the score is a tie, the match will continue until there is a winner.
The National Cup bonus will be distributed to the teams that qualify in the last 10 stages. Each team will receive a bonus, in local currency, depending on its results. An example is shown below.
Each player from the First team and reserves will receive 0.25 experience points for playing in a cup match.
All teams from a continent that meet certain criteria are able to participate in the Continental Cup.
In order to be eligible to compete in the Continental Cup, you need to be verified and to have logged in at least once in the last 5 days before the start of the competition. Don’t forget that if your club’s local currency is on the negative, you will not qualify for the competition.
The Continental Championship matches will take place according to the time zone of the home team. The matches will be played starting with the 21:00 local hour of the team playing at home.
The same as in the National Cup, if the score is a tie at the end of the match it will be prolonged. Being an home-away system, if for example your team wins the home match with 1-0 but in the away match loses with 0-1, the away match will be prolonged until one of the teams wins.
The bonuses for the Continental Cup will be distributed only in the last 10 Stages of the competition. The bonuses are substantial as shown in the image of Europe below.
