Announcement: Kick it out! 24

On 4 November, the big annual update of our game will be released: Kick it out! 24

There will be several minor or major innovations, but the core of the game will remain untouched.

New rule: League participation restriction for households. Due to frequent complaints and time-consuming suspicion checks, starting with this update, we are preventing teams on the same network (i.e. household) from registering for the same league (i.e. country and division). Bypassing this restriction is therefore considered a rule violation. Once again: Participants in the same household (family, flat-sharing community, but also second teams of the same manager, etc.) are prohibited from participating in one and the same league. We ask for your understanding for this measure. We are sure that the enjoyment of the game will not suffer if people within the family only meet in tournaments or friendly matches. Big advantage: As a family, you no longer have to feel exposed to the blanket suspicion of „arranging“ league games because you don’t meet each other at all. More relaxed playing for everyone!

New coach action: Set up team. In future, you can let the coach set up the team. A feature that really exists in every football manager game is now also available in KiO. It is certainly interesting, especially for beginners, to see how the coach sets up the team. By the way, the set tactics remain untouched. Of course, every experienced manager is free not to use the new coach action!

New campaigns

The biggest news is the new advertising campaigns. There are several of them, and we will not present them all in detail here. Basically, the following applies to each campaign:

You can buy the campaign in the shop. Attention: The campaigns are very, very expensive. That is on purpose! They are there so that extremely rich teams have a way to shell out their money for at least somewhat useful things. Having an extremely high capital is not a useful goal for a football manager. So you can finally invest your dough!

You can only have one campaign at a time. This restriction is necessary so that extremely rich teams can’t take advantage of multiple benefits in a short period of time.

Campaigns run for 2 or 3 days. You need to have level 20 (for the „coach memoires“ campaign) or 30 (all others) to see the new campaigns in the shop.

During this time, campaigns grant small benefits (but not in simu!). The advantages are intentionally small so that rich teams do not suddenly have a huge advantage over others.

Here is an example of one of the new promotional campaigns:

As you can easily see, this is a „Tiktok advertising campaign“. It simply generates a certain number of talent points during the runtime of three days. Exactly how many and when is a bit random, and we are not revealing the exact value at the moment, nor the price. Only this much: it’s a three-digit million amount. That’s a lot! You are therefore faced with the decision of whether or not you want to shell out the money for a small pile of talent points. Your free decision!

We will start with six new campaigns. We may be due for a readjustment, and possibly more campaigns will be added in the foreseeable future. Because we don’t think much of you having tens of billions lying around and not knowing where to put it. Now we are creating an opportunity to invest large amounts of capital in a realistic way. We are sure that the majority of you will find this useful and interesting!

KiO World Cup 2023

Of course, the big KiO World Cup will again take place this year!

The start is on 23 June.

As always, there are 192 qualifying groups in knockout mode every day between 10 am and 10 pm, the winners qualify for the group stage (you can participate as often as you like until you qualify). The qualifiers run until mid-July, so I’m sure everyone will find time to participate at some point. We end the qualifying phase again with a Youtube video showing the group draw.

The group stage will probably take place on Saturday, 5 August: 32 groups of 6 in league mode with first and second legs, 1st and 2nd place will advance to the final round. There will be no more than one team from the same clan per group if possible!

The grand final day is expected to be 19 August: 64 teams will play the winner in knockout mode with second legs.

Good luck and have fun with the preparation!

Announcement: Kick it out 23

On the occasion of our game’s 13th birthday on 21 May, KiO 23 will be released!

We are expanding the game with interesting aspects and carrying out necessary technical renovations.

New: Monthly specials

There will be monthly Nation Specials, initially alternating between Spain, Italy, England, France and Germany. These are regular knockout tournaments that run several times a day with one special feature: you must setup at least 3 players from the respective country! As special rewards, tournament winners will receive two (final losers one) new collectibles, 11 of which can be exchanged for a top platinum player from the respective country. So it’s worth taking part! There are also new medals for winning nations tournaments. Alongside with this innovation, you will be able to choose new player’s home country when activating rookie contracts in the academy (from a selection).

New: Donate your stock

We know that many of you have hundreds of items in your inventory that you will never use up. Instead of recycling them, you will be able to donate piles of these items. You won’t get anything out of this apart from a new medal, but others will: Ludetis will announce donation goals each time. As soon as a certain number of items has been donated in total by all users, Ludetis will donate a fixed amount of money to a previously announced charity organisation! We will announce the details at the start.

Technical changes

Due to frequent problems with location detection (not only technical, but also due to Google’s complicated data protection regulations) and the impractical mechanisms on the device, we will in future only carry out location tracking on the server side. For this purpose, your IP number will be evaluated – an inaccurate but technically unproblematic procedure. We will only know the city you are in (sometimes even this is only approximately correct) – but this is sufficient for our needs, firstly to check in which RegioCup you belong and secondly to check for multi-account abuse (done only in case of suspicion). Other changes concern bug fixes and the updating of components that the game needs. Such things are not visible to the outside world, but unfortunately cause a lot of work. Therefore, even more innovations in this update are not possible. We ask for your understanding.

We are looking forward to the big update with you and are working hard to make it a fun experience!

All about the november update

On 11-11 the November update of Kick it out (version 10.12) for Android will be released!

And this is new:

Friendlies: home, away, it doesn’t matter!

The update brings a new button to the friendly match lounges: In future, you can determine that you don’t care whether you play at home or away. Accordingly, you will be drawn to any suitable team that is also currently on the lookout, regardless of where the match is taking place. This innovation is based on a suggestion from the community.

Own tournaments with weak SSP

In the future, you will not only be able to organise your own tournaments with a strong SSP, but also with a weak SSP. This improvement was also a suggestion from a fellow player.

Mentor list

To make it easier for new players to get in touch with the community, there is a list of managers who offer their support: The „Mentors“. New players can use this list to request a friendship with mentors and then ask questions and receive advice in the chat. If you want to become a mentor, apply: send a message to the support. Mentors have no benefits in the game, so the work is purely voluntary. We have no way of knowing how many newcomers will take advantage of this option – but we would like to try to make it easier for new players to get started in our game, which is really not all that easy.

New playable country: Morocco

On the initiative of fellow players, Morocco has been added as a playable country in the Africa League.

Corrections

In addition, as always, there are a number of corrections, many of which affect the statistics part of the tablet version. Also, when selecting crests, your stars are now shown in the preview.

The update is expected to be released on 11-11 during the course of the day and will install automatically, you can recognise it by the version number in the bottom right corner.

There are no gameplay changes that affect the simulation or your players.

KiO World Cup 22 Announcement

Of course the great KiO World Cup will take place in summer – not in winter, like other world tournaments you might think of.

Start is on July 11th!

There will be 192 qualifier tournaments in KO mode hourly each day between 10 and 22 CEST. The winners progress to the group phase. In contrast to the UC qualifiers, you can play any number of KiO Worldcup qualifiers until you win one. Note that this might become easier in the last tournaments when the strongest teams are already through…

There will be 32 Group phase tournaments with 6 participants each, taking place on saturday, august 13th. The mode will be league with rematch, and the 2 best teams progress to the final round. The system will put no more than one team per clan into the same group phase tournament.

The great finals day is august 20th. On that day, the 64 finalists will fight for the KiO World Cup 2022.

Have a great summer and good luck in the largest KiO tournament of the year!

Announcing KiO 10.11

12 years of Kick it out! Yes, our game left the official Beta in may 2010. About time for a great update, isn’t it?

KiO Solar Cup

Yes, we have a new great tournament!

The Solar Cup will be the new second-tier weekly tournament, while the Galaxy Cup will be moved to third rank. The net result is that both tournaments can run with 64 participants (not 128 like now) and the 6th place in the league allows for participation, too. Also, we add a last minute registration period of 5 minutes before start, open for the public to decrease the number of bot teams. While at it, we are slightly changing the schedule for the Saturday tournaments.

To be precise, the new system works as follows:

10:00-15:30 UC-Qualifiers
17:30 League Cup Finals
19:15 Clan Master Cup
20:15 Universe Cup (for league champions and qualifier winners only)
20:45 Solar Cup (for league place 2 and 3 and league cup winners, with last minute registration)
21:15 Galaxy Cup (for league place 4, 5 and 6, with last minute registration)

With this schedule, more teams can participate in the great tournaments, they do not interfere with clan cups and the last matches of leagues are more important.

Let’s find out who will be the first Solar Cup Winner on June 4th!

Team Events

We are also introducing a new rare item, the Team Event:

You can activate a team event any time (it becomes colorful then) to increase the morale maximum of your team by one for the next 90 minutes! Then the item vanishes.

Multiple active team events add up, but the morale maximum can never exceed 13. There are two very important things to note:

  1. Team Events cannot be combined with Spring Awakenings. That said, they CAN be combined with the Motivator coach, so if you have him, you only need zwei team events to reach the maximum fo 13.
  2. Activations do NOT increase the morale, only the maximum. You need to raise morale the usual way as long as the active event remains to get advantage from it.

Team Events will show up in platinum treasure chests. They replace half of the magic shoes in there, which means that rarity of other items does not change. Also, there will be Team Events in the summer season pack available june 1st.

Team Events are made for the most important matches! You’d propably want to activate them before the last league match or the Universe Cup. Remember you need time to actually raise your morale by winning tournaments before your important event actually starts.

Wrapup

The updated app is scheduled for release on may 30th. It will also include the translated version of the new KiO manual which is available as PDF. This replaces the old wiki.

Thanks for playing and let’s have fun together for another 12 years of Kick it out!
