Sadly no fun to play for me, Division 2 is much too easy.

Talked to lifeschool. Unfortunately there's no way to start division 1 right away. Also not everyone knows this game well yet so it should still be fun for the majority.

I hope.
For me the game is such a classic that everyone must know it
The first results show that everyone will have 14 or 13 victories.
Even being average I think we can win the division 2 in the first part!
I think the Bitmap Brothers were wrong for the difficulty, the league 2 is a little too easy.
Speedball 1 offers a better challenge imho!
But there are other game modes in SB2 and it's still a great game

Ice cream! Ice cream!

It's half-time. 10.5 days to go.

Yeh, I found it relatively easy to win the league. I had a few false starts, but then picked up a few tricks and it started to fall into place.

In League 2 do you get promoted with your team intact?

I bought several players (striker (C), midfielder, goalkeeper) and I had no injuries in my team.
Here my new score:

455+315-019=751

To me it's a very frustrating game of luck where you must hope you won't encounter Steel Fury, Damocles or The Renegades in the first three games (if you want to win all 14 games).

For the contest it does not matter to lose, the important thing is to score.
Nevertheless it's possible to beat them very early.
The important thing is to have the multiplier x2.
If you have difficulties to score a goal against these 3 big teams, change your tactics.
Turn on the 5 stars, it pays a lot of points too.

In the second game if you can have a central striker in transfer, it simplifies everything.

20 points is not a lot in this game for having to activate 5 stars.

That's the same as you get for a single goal with 2x multiplier. Which is easy against the weak teams but when they're stronger it's very hard to get the multiplier.

Yes if you get lucky with the transfer market that helps a lot.

Okay, got the hang of it now. After Revolver and Raw Messiah I got a center forward (Midia) and was then able to beat Damocles 34-20 in the 3rd game. Managed to later beat Revolver the 2nd time with 305-0. But afterwards I wasted time trying to get the multiplier and had close losses to Steel Fury and Damocles.



304 + 184 - 19 = 469

First and only attempt. Could probably do better but I don't have any time left.

Thumbs up

Round is over - rexsu wins his 17th GOLD medal and now has a lead of 41 points in the Super League. With only two more games to play that means no one can catch him anymore.

Congratulations to your third Super League championship, rexsu!

After two consecutive titles in 2009 and 2010 this is a well deserved return to the top!


Also great Speedball 2 scores by ChrisN82 and lifeschool who take SILVER (Chris) and BRONZE (Dan).


In the team battle Lemon beat us 65-53!
Lemon equalized the battle - it's 8-8!

Thank you
Things always come in threes !
Almost 10 years after my first win, it doesn't rejuvenate me.

Sorry for the other players but it's because of John4p, it's him who motivated me to come back

There is still a goal to accomplish because the battle continues with Lemon 8-8

You really shouldn't apologize for giving your best. Without motivation this league would be dead.

Truly pushed quite a few games to their limits - incredible results for F1, Saint Dragon, Ziriax, Zarathrusta, Zool 2 and Toki!

Hope you're here to stay.
