CyberSports have sent words that their foot-to-ball massively-multiplayer virtual world, Football Superstars, has now hit the 250,000 registrations mark. It’s an interesting proposition, not unlike the quite-good-and-similarly-free-to-play Empire Of Sports, with players able to create their own ballists and then partake in games from 3-a-side up to full 11-a-side matches. Foot-to-ballists grow in competence over time allow you to increase “stats” as you “progress”. And it’s a real-time action sporter too, unlike the similar sports-fixated Football Manager Live.
It’s all rather mysterious to us, of course, since we recognise none of the terrain, shotguns, or base-building that we find to be essential to a real game. Perhaps you understand what this foot-to-ball phenomenon is all about?
