A Guide to Getting Your Head in the Game
Pocket League Story is less complex than most other games in the "Story" series. Once you grasp the fundamentals, you'll rarely find your team losing matches, or have difficulty earning money and points. Just follow the tips below.
You'll begin with a group of teammates who all have one thing in common -- they're incredibly average. They'll simply never be superstars, as they lack the potential talent rating. Under each player you'll see a label of either Average, Exceptional, World Class, or Superstar.
Your first goal is to begin replacing these money pits -- no matter how much you train them they'll never get any better. As soon as you see a new player available, check him out -- only Exceptional players will be available at first. As you progress you'll be able to move up the ranks to recruit players labelled "World Class" and eventually "Superstar". Remember to spend your points wisely. For instance, don't spend them training "Exceptional" players once you've unlocked access to "World Class" ones, as you'll be replacing them soon anyway.
Next, you'll need to choose three players to focus your special training on -- most likely made up of a defender, goalie, and forward. Go into Special Training after each match and keep leveling their skills. Make sure you're adding buildings to your soccer complex, and keeping extra players on your team who will make these buildings work, as those buildings generate special training points.
Research points belong to one of four classes -- tactical, strength, heart, and idea. You'll use these for training players, recruiting sponsors, and fan events. Make sure you're funding those fan events, as they'll give you access to new features, including new training activities, buildings, coaches, players, and more. Remember to unlock activities evenly across the board as well, or you will find you're playing catch-up later down the road after you've created a team heavily unbalanced into one skill. Finally, don't underestimate the benefit of sponsors. Not only do they generate cash, but they also unlock special talent stats.
