In case you're looking for something to keep you occupied before the World Cup arrives, Champion Eleven might just be the game for you. The new FIFPro licensed football management sim comes to you courtesy of MeoGames, and is officially endorsed by football legend Pep Guardiola. There's certainly plenty of anticipation building up around the game, so we've come up with 5 reasons why you should check it out. To kick things off...
You get to pick your perfect team
Every fantasy football enthusiast knows the joy of being able to pick and match the best players from their home league - and then mercilessly drop the ones that don't perform. Well, now you can do it on a World scale with all of the best players at your disposal. Over 60,000 players feature in the game, including Messi, Ronaldo, Coutinho, and Pogba. Best of all the combination of a very clever AI system and motion capture technology, gives an authentic feel to how they actually perform on the pitch in reality.
Players are never too hard to come by
Champion Eleven provides a number of ways to acquire the famous players the game promises. For any City fans out there, you might be pleased to know that one of your club favourites, Gabrielle Jesus, joins the game right from the beginning. Thanks to generous daily login bonuses you can also add World Class talents to your squad like Messi, and Ronaldo, after only a matter of days.
Funds and tokens (Champion Eleven's in-game currency) allow you to pick up players through the game's transfer system, and the great thing is that there are plenty of opportunities to earn them. For instance, before entering any league or tournament you can pick a sponsor which will offer bonuses based on how well your team performs. Funds, tokens, and valuable players can also be obtained by completing tasks, and winning tournaments.
It's not just about coaching
Besides picking up all the duties needed as a manager, you'll also get to step into the shoes of chairman, putting you in charge of player transfers and team facilities. It takes more than just investing in your squad to see your team improve, with training grounds, medical facilities, and your stadium, to maintain in order to keep your team at their best. Medikits, energy drinks, and morale boosters are just some of the rewards you'll receive for doing so.
Real time PVP matches
Champion Eleven boasts a multitude of different cups, leagues, and tournaments to participate in as you make your way through the game, but none are more satisfying than PvP modes like Champions League.
Players won't be forced to take a back seat and let the AI do the thinking either - both you and your opponent determine the tactics and changes throughout the matches in real time. There's a number of different attacking and defensive options to choose from so knowing your team's strengths is absolutely key - for instance, if you have a pair of world class wingers on your flanks then make sure you instruct your team to attack the wing to start getting the ball in the box.
It's got Pep's approval
Some gamers might find themselves a tad cynical when it comes to sporting personalities lending their names to games - there's certainly been more than a few that missed the mark. But Champion Eleven players can rest assured that Pep Guardiola has done a lot more than just add his name to the game.
For one thing, Guardiola appears throughout, lending helpful tips on tactics, and to make your team progress. On top of that, Guardiola has also signed on to be the global promotional ambassador, whose endorsement (alongside its official FIFPro licensing) promises a quality managing sim worthy of a World Cup year.
