Football, Tactics & Glory - _K_o_S_


This is part of a series of articles that talk about the many new features that will appear in the next major expansion. You can find past articles there.

In the comments to the previous news, many of you wrote that you would like to see a screen with the statistics of goals, assists, tackles, saves for all your footballers.

Well, here you go! Such a screen is going to appear in the next expansion. Today I want to show it to you.

Statistics of your footballers



On this screen you will be able to see and compare your footballers by following stats:

  • Matches played
  • Number of Man of the Match awards
  • Goals scored
  • Assists
  • Tackles
  • Saves
  • Cards
  • Injuries
  • Total time of being injured

Moreover, you will be able to sort the table by any of these stats. Here, for example, I've sorted the table by the scored goals:



After sorting I've noticed that my RD Thonis, despite being a full back, scored 1 goal and made 7 assists.

By the way, note that you can filter the table by the tournaments. This will allow you to see data separately for leagues, for cups and for continental cups. Also, you can see separately the data for the entire history and data for the current season.

Statistics of the footballers after the match

A similar screen will be shown after every match:



On the screenshot you can see, that FW Squirrel scored 3 goals, made 1 assist and 1 tackle, and as a result earned the Man of the Match award.

Comment if you were happy to know about this screen
As usual, if you were glad to see this screen in the game, write about it in the comments. And if you do not care, or not particularly interested - also write. This will make it easier for us to understand your expectations.

I want to recall you that you can already add Football, Tactics & Glory: Manager's Journey to your Wishlist.

Football, Tactics & Glory - _K_o_S_


This is part of a series of articles that talk about the many new features that will appear in the next major expansion. You can find past articles there.

When you love your club, when you put efforts in each match, sometimes you want to see a big picture of how you play. Do you score more at home or away? How do you score the most goals? How do you concede most of the goals? How many red and yellow cards do you get per season? How many injuries did your footballers have? Etc.

Also, when you have played 5 or more seasons, it is interesting to look back and compare your current successes with past ones. Did the winning percentage in away matches increase? Have you started to score more with a Cannon shot? Has the number of injuries decreased?

Such information would be great to see in diagrams and graphs, rather than in dry numbers.

To answer these questions, we created two new screens: Seasons and Trends.

Seasons
We collected some pieces of global statistical data, placed them on the charts in such a way that it's very easy to look at and evaluate the changes which happened in every season.



At first glance, the screen seems scary. But when you start to delve into the data, you will see that they are placed logically and easily for perception.

For example, the screenshot shows that in the season 2023/2024 in home matches I mainly won. But in the away, I had fewer victories, but many draws and defeats.

However, in the season 2025/2026, I was able to ensure that in away matches I had more wins and fewer losses. Given that I won the European Cup this season, we can assume that away victories were earned precisely in the play-off matches when it was necessary to get the victory in order to go to the higher rounds.



At the bottom of the screen, there is a switch that filters only matches of the league, cup and continental tournaments. So you can switch and see if your assumptions are correct.

- - - - -

Another very interesting feature is the ability to see on the charts how you scored and missed goals.



For example, see how the ratio of goals scored by a Cannon shot (red sector) has changed over the past three seasons. In the year 2023, I bought several young forwards with this skill, began to train the skill in training, and more often put forwards on the matches.



As a result, in the last season, the forwards improved their skill level and began to score a lot, having displaced the Rainbow feint from the first place. It's worth noting that the share of Rainbow feint decreased partially because I sold an old forward with the third level of this skill.

By the way, the charts clearly show that I really like to score goals after crosses (orange sector).

Trends

In fact, we show almost the same data in the form of graphs. The graphs allow you to look differently at how your progress has changed over time.



The graph shows how the number of my victories grew and the defeats fell over time.

You can see the absolute values ​​of victories and defeats, but they make little sense if you play a different number of matches in each season. Therefore, we introduced an option that allows you to divide the number of pieces of statistics by the number of matches played. So the graphs will provide more logical information.

But if you look at the screenshot, you might think that it would be great to compare the successes in matches with your progression in the league. After all, it's interesting to correlate the number of your victories with what place in the league you took and whether you won any trophy.

We have added such an opportunity. The left bar shows statistics, and the right one - the place taken in the league.



Now it has become more interesting. After all, you can, for example, see that in the third season I took seventh place. And this was the season in which the number of victories fell and the number of defeats increased.

This screen also shows other statistics. Here, for example, is a comparison of different kinds of scored goals for each season:



See how rapidly the number of goals scored by the Cannon shot has risen.

Comment on what you were most interested in
As usual, if the information about such statistics was interesting for you, write about it in the comments. It allows us to better understand you.

Despite the fact that in the next major expansion we make a huge emphasis on statistics, many other game elements will be improved as well.

Today I want to talk about how the substitutions mechanics will be improved.

Visualization of substitutions, injuries and cards
Earlier, when the substitution took place, you learned about it from the fast-moving text at the bottom of the screen. This was not obvious, especially if the substitution was made by your opponent.

Same with injuries and cards. You might have missed when a footballer was sent off the pitch.

Now, the game will be showing when such events happen.



We prepared different poses for substitutions, so they can be selected depending on the game context: footballers can leave the pitch being happy or disappointed.

Sure thing, the poses for the yellow and red cards will be different as well. For us, details matter.

Substitutions while stopping time
Earlier, in order to make a substitution before performing, for example, a free kick, you had to very quickly press the “Substitution” button before the free kick mechanics started.

In the next expansion, we introduce the concept of 'Stopping Time.' Now, while you have not moved a single player during the free kick, penalty kick or the throw-in, you can make a substitution.

The game will show when the instant substitution is available.



Additional information about the situation on the pitch
Despite the fact that you quickly get used to the 'Skills are not available after kick off' rule, some players complained that they constantly forget about it. Therefore, now we will inform you when skills are not available. It will be shown at the bottom of the screen.



Also, now we will inform you about what phase of the penalty/corner/throw-in/free kick you are currently on. You can see that on the screenshot which shows the stopping time.

Comment on what you were most interested in
If you are glad to find out that the substitutions will be revamped, write about it in the comments, please so we know if it made sense to spend the time on this feature.

Earlier I was telling how the next major expansion will show detailed statistics for each tournament.

Now, we started working on the club's statistics.

What historical stats did we show earlier?
In the current version of the game, you can trace how the position of each club has been changing on the historical chart. It also shows what the strength of the club at the end of the season was and what trophies the club won.

But we decided that this is not the most convenient way to track the historical statistics of the clubs. We want to know more details. Therefore, for the next expansion, we developed a separate club's history screen.

Trophies
First of all, you can see how many trophies the club has won in its entire history. On the chart, you can evaluate the ratio of the trophies won.

We also decided to introduce a historical scale into the game, which will help to quickly assess the success of the club in different seasons. If the club won a trophy, it will be displayed above or below the scale. If the club relegated from the league, this year will be colored in red. If it promoted (or got into the top 3 in the Premier League), then the selected season will turn green. If the club won a gold double (became the champion of the league and won National cup), then we color it with orange.

When you spend several seasons in the game, it is interesting to go to the screen of the clubs you are interested in and study their achievements: do they have the doubles, what is the highest place they reached in their history, how high they got in the cup.



Important trophies
Separately, we decided to show what important trophies the club won or tried to win. If the club participated in the Premier League, the National Cup and/or any continental tournament, then the game will show what the club achieved in these tournaments.



Footballers
The strength of the team is seen not only by its trophies but also by the value of all club players. And if we can show this information, then why not to show other interesting data related to the players?

For example, now you can see the average age and level of the club's players, the most expensive acquisition, the most expensive sale, the football player on which the club made the best money.



Opponents
Over the course of several seasons, each club shows regularities in which opponents it is easier to play with and which ones are more difficult. It used to be unrealistic to track. And the expansion, in a separate field you will be able to see it easily.

The screenshot, for example, shows the rivals of my club Dortmund FC. Surprisingly, the easiest opponent is the league leader Munich FC.



These stats can be tracked for every club. For example, here are the data for Munich FC:



Streaks
On the tournament statistics screens, we have already shown information on successful and unsuccessful streaks. But when we introduced similar statistics for each club separately, we thought about the following:

Each club has ups and downs. In some seasons, the club will sweep away everyone in its way, and in other seasons, the competition will appear in the league, and it is no longer easy to win. The streaks sometimes represent such ups and downs of the competition, struggle, easy wins to hard losses.

If we can't “see” the streaks visually, then this information is almost useless. It is difficult to perceive.

Therefore, we invented a special way to visually see when the club had the best streaks.

Here, for example, the statistics of the club Munich FC:



Comment on what you were most interested in
We would like to know what do you think about these stats. What pieces of information do seem most interesting to you?

While you can't purchase it now, _you can add it to Wishlist_. It will allow you to not miss the moment when the add-on is live.

At the same time, we want to please you with the news that the add-on will include the feature which many of you have been asking us for: cup celebration animations! Now, when you win any tournament, you will see one of the several new animations in which the players you get used to are celebrating the win.

Moreover, you will no only joy together with the team, you will be able to take a photo of this precious moment!

In addition to implementing statistics, we are also working on the introduction of several features that will allow you to better feel the game world. Today I will talk about two such new features: Man of the match and Team of the round.

Man of the match
Earlier, the best player in a match was determined only in the match in which your team participated. And even then, regardless of whether the team won or lost, each team had its own best player.

Now the game determines only one best player in each match. The game evaluates all the actions of a footballer in a match. As a result, in each match, only one footballer will be the Man of the match.

If your player has become the Man of the match, he will earn additional experience. In the screenshot, this player is marked with a crown icon. Look at the hint above: it shows how much XP points the player earned for becoming the MoM.



Alongside the top-10 tables (best scorers, best assistants etc) there will be a table which shows the best players. At the end of the season, your footballers, who got to the top 3 best players list, will bring additional Glory.



The team of the round
After each match, the game will comprise a team of those players who played best in the previous round. Such a team will be composed for all tournaments.



If the footballers of your team got into the team of the round, then the number of your fans will increase.

If it is your club that becomes the source of most players in the best team of the round, then you will earn bonus Glory points.

Moreover, we also show what the selected players did in the match so the journalists decided to select them to the top-11.



To make the list even more interesting, we decided to track and show some special important factors:
  • saving a penalty
  • scoring a deciding goal
  • scoring a hat-trick

At the end of a season, you will be able to see the team of the season for every tournament separately. If your players get to any of these teams, your team will earn fans and Glory.

Comment on what you were most interested in
Both of these mechanics do not affect the gameplay significantly. Rather they make the game world more lively and interesting. If I remember correctly, no one asked us for them in the forums. I wonder if there are those among you who wished about having such features to appear in the game ;)

As I told earlier, now we store the history of all matches separated by tournaments and seasons.

But besides the dry numbers, it’s also interesting to learn about the most interesting matches, the most unusual achievements, the most special players in the history of the tournaments.

For example, you might be interested to know which youngest player scored a goal in the European Cup final. Or, for example, which club scored the most goals in a season.



To do this, we made several screens, on each of which we show analytics both for the current season and for the entire history of the tournament.

For screenshots, I simulated 20 seasons. The screenshots show the analytics of the European Cup. Just imagine how cool it will look with modifications ;) I already played the add-on with the modifications, and it makes the game much more immersive.

Clubs
Analytics that shows clubs with the most interesting achievements.





Footballers
Here we show the footballers with some interesting records. If your player once set an unusual record, you will see him on this screen until someone else beats his record.





Matches
Most matches are unremarkable. But some matches are special. For example, an underdog defeated a much stronger team. Or the team made an unexpected comeback in the European Cup, losing the first match 3-0. On this screen you will learn about such matches.




General statistics
Since we collect a huge amount of statistics anyway, we decided to create a separate screen that displays information about the most common indicators such as the number of home victories or the number of goals scored on the road in the tournaments.



Comment on what you were most interested in
If you have an idea for some historical analytics, which could be shown on the screen and which you did not see in the screenshots, I would be glad to hear about it. If possible, we will try to implement the best ideas.

Also, if you can propose better English terms for the stats we show on the screenshots, it would be great as well.

Football, Tactics & Glory - _K_o_S_


A few weeks ago, several players complained that the Steam Cloud did not properly synchronize their saved data.

And since we really want your gaming experience to be as enjoyable as possible, we decided to spend some time and try to understand how, for our part, we can “help” Steam Cloud make better decisions about synchronization.

Yesterday's small update does just that: it improves interaction with Steam Cloud.

Additionally, we have significantly expanded the database of names for the following countries:
  • England
  • Scotland
  • USA

Thanks to Moray Greig for helping us with the names!
Football, Tactics & Glory - _K_o_S_


Last time I have told that there will be more statistics for the tournaments you play in.

Today I want to tell about other data you will be able to see in the game.

Seeing other countries
Many players asked about the possibility to see the tournament tables of other countries. We will give this possibility.

Now you can go to the Countries screen, choose the country of interest and click the 'Tables' button at the bottom of the screen. In the screenshot, my club plays in England, but I chose Italy:





View the results of all matches of the season
This is a possibility which many players asked us for as well.

At the bottom of the Tables screen, there are arrows to the right and left. They change the information about the selected tournament. Previously, you could only switch between the Clubs and Footballers views. Now we have added an additional view: Matches.

Moreover, you can even see the history of all matches of the season and in other leagues as well. For example, in the screenshot below, I opened the results of matches in Italy (I recall that my club plays in England):



Similarly, you can see the match results in continental tournaments:



The history of face-ups between clubs
Finally, the most important feature. You can see the history of face-ups of any two clubs.

Firstly, now before the match, a button appears that allows you to recall the history of plays with the next opponent.



Secondly, if you select an opponent in any of the tables, a button will appear at the bottom of the screen allowing you to see the history of matches with him.

And thirdly, on any of the screens that displays the results of matches, you can select the pair of clubs to see the history of plays between them. In the screenshot below, I look at the statistics between the two clubs in Italy:



This screen displays how many times each team won and how many draws were in the face-ups.

In addition, here we display additional data. For example, how many goals were scored in these matches by each team.

At the bottom of the screen, you will see all the matches in which the teams met each other with the date of the play, the name of the tournament and the round of the tournament.

Additionally, the result of the last five matches for each team is displayed in brief form.

Here is an example of interesting statistics between Liverpool and Madrid:



In 2019, teams played in the group stage of European Cup. Madrid beat Liverpool twice. But the matches were hot. Next time they met in 2023 in the finals. Liverpool avenged defeat. And two years later, Liverpool won again, but this time, in the semifinal of the European Cup.

Comment on what you were most interested in
If you were pleased with the information about any of these statistics, I would be glad to know what you were most interested in. Also, if you have any questions or suggestions - feel free to write in the commentaries.

Btw, I wonder if do the English terms I used here are correct. Does "Face-up" mean the match where two teams meat each other? Do "Shoot-Outs" mean the matches where at least one of the teams didn't miss a goal?

Football, Tactics & Glory - _K_o_S_


While we are working on the next add-on, I will tell about new features we have already made for this add-on.

Today I want to talk about statistics that will be displayed for each tournament.

The screenshots below might be not final. There are some elements which will be polished later.

Basic Tournament Information
Here, you will find the main information about the chosen tournament be it Third League or European Cup.



In the place where 'Not enough data' is written, the most interesting statistical information about the tournament will be displayed. For example, the club that scored the most goals; the country with the most trophies; etc. This information we have not added to this screen yet.

Champions
It's a list with all the champions with the details about played matches, wins, loses, scored and missed goals etc.



Also, here you will see the best players in the tournament for each season.

Clubs
This and the following three screens are my favourites.

Here you can see the history of the performance of all clubs for each tournament individually.



In addition to basic information, here you can compare clubs according to the following stats:
  • How many seasons did the club participate in the tournament
  • How many times did the club take second or third place
  • How many times did the club lose in the finals or semifinals (for the cup tournaments)
  • How many matches did the club play in the tournament
  • How many times did the club relegate from the league
  • What the maximum place did the club take in the league

After 10 or more seasons, this table is filled with the history of ups and downs. It is especially interesting to dig into the statistics of clubs in international tournaments.

The tables on this and all subsequent screens can be sorted by different stats. If you want to sort the teams by the number of matches played in the tournament or the number of defeats in the finals - you will be able to do it easily.

Footballers
This is also a very interesting screen, the whole charm of which is revealed after 10 or more seasons.

It displays the top 20 players of the tournament in different categories (best scorer, best goalkeeper, etc.) in its entire history.



It is interesting to find your players on this screen, it is interesting to watch how other players have become stars in other clubs.

I like that after dozens of seasons in the table will be both football players who set records in the early years and beginners. This can be seen in the "Debut" column.

Countries
Another very interesting screen, which is displayed only for continental tournaments.



It shows how well different countries perform in these tournaments. Also on this screen, you can see all the winners and all the finalists of the chosen tournament.

Comment on what you were most interested in
If you were pleased with the information about any of these statistics, I would be glad to know what you were most interested in. Also, if you have any questions or suggestions - feel free to write in the commentaries.
