KiO Week Season 414



We have some important news to share, so it’s time for another issue of KiO Week.

Pot B

Today we introduce a “pot b” for all elimination (KO) tournaments. All bot teams are put into that pot before the draw of the first round, and the result is that in that round a bot plays a non-bot team whenever possible. This means that no real team can reach a final match just by beating bots while other teams have to play other real opponents in all rounds. We are introducing this today for standard tournaments and on sunday for the league cups. This is an improvement suggested by the community.

Furthermore, this allows us to give 50 clan score points to the loser of league cup finals. We did not do this until now, because sometimes the loser of the final had only beaten bots or low strength teams, but in the future that cannot happen anymore due to the “pot b” draw. We are sure you like this change.

Autumn Cup

Summer is gone, say welcome to autumn! So we’re going to start a large tournament special today running until october 18th: Join the Autumn cup and win a free training camp! To give not-so-strong teams a chance, the tournaments are held with random max strength values. Have fun!

KiO Week Season 412



Another season is about to end, and very soon we’ll have our KiO 9.1 update weekend!

You already know that there will be a new building, the underground parking with train station and a minor change to defensive headers. I’d like to stress that this really is a minor change which will have impact on a low number of matches only (when you play a team with many headers and crossing specialists).

There’s another addition which was on the wishlist of many of you for quite some time: We are going to introduce the list of league cup winners per league, just alongside the existing list of champions.

The Android app version 9.1 is scheduled for release saturday afternoon, the Windows version will be available during the next days, as we cannot specify exactly when Microsoft is done with their review. Note that the change to the headers is server-side only and will be switched early sunday morning (CEST), so after the season ended and before the new league season starts.

KiO Week 410: September Update Preview



Time for another update preview! KiO 9.1 is scheduled for sept, 22.

This update features two changes, one of which is more or less game independent. And yellow.



What you see here is an improved version of the large parking deck (screenshot from a tablet). You will be able to upgrade it to a underground parking with tram station. The tram is of course animated, but the line is only active before a match (when the fans approach your stadium). This building has no further influence on the game, so no free items, no better players, no less sensations. It’s just a more modern building, so build it if you like and don’t if not.

The more important change affects crossings.

That’s right, we are going to do another very small change to the simulation. As with the last update which introduced the Hammer specialists, we are sure that this is a good thing for the game and will not brake any tactics or formations. The motivation for the change is that it does not matter how many crossing and header specialists you have, your opponent can stop them with just one defensive header specialist. So up to seven specialists are nearly completely countered by one. We think that this is not good balancing, so we are going to change it. Starting with the KiO 9.1 update, defensive headers will only stop a certain amount of crossings played. For most matchups, this will not change anything, as most opponents simply do not play that many crossings. Or you win anyway because of higher strength, morale or chosen formation.

But, given equal formations, strength and morale, and an opponent with many crossing and header specialists, you will need two defensive header specialists to stop as many crossings as now stopped with one. This is especially interesting for 343 vs. 343, because in 343 you have not the option to add a second Center Back header (def midfield headers are not counted as defense in this formation). So 343 will become vulnerable to 343 with many crossings. There is more to find out, but we can asure you that in most matches you will not experience any difference, as we did lots of tests. But if you like to try the new options, you now have plenty of time to get the players needed until the update comes.

KiO Week Season 409



Here we are at the end of season 409!

While we are busy with some important updates to our other game, Railroad Manager, we of course won’t miss to inform you about this weekend’s ruby special. So, for each purchased pack, you get 3 free ruby extra until monday, midnight CEST.

And now for something completely different. As you know, we ask you for your opinion on certain topics of our game from time to time. Today it’s again time for another survey! This survey’s topic is the rock-paper-scissors system, because we receive lots of totally different input from you, like: “That’s not football, it’s trying to read another one’s thoughts!” or “Why the heck did I loose, I played the correct formation?”. So here’s your opportunity to tell us what you think. Just answer the brief questions and we’ll see what the results are!

Enter the survey here!

KiO Week Season 406



Summer is still here! And so the Hot Summer Cup returns for another great weekend!



But also the “real” (if that’s relevant for you) seasons are due to start, so we changed the reward for the Hot Summer Cup winners to a Training Camp!

Have a nice weekend!

KiO Week Season 405



It’s hot in Germany! But of course I’m willing to just leave the pool for a couple of minutes to write this news for you.



Time for some refreshing summer boosts!



This weekend we are running the Hot Summer Cup (during daylight time in europe). Winners get one free +2 summer boost (increases player strength by 2 for 1 day)! The tournament is limited to strength 99 so not only the top teams have good chances to win.

And now back into the POOL!

KiO Week Season 404



Here’s another issue of Summer vacation KiO Week!
First thing to mention is that we have another pack special this weekend. So you’ll get 3 bonux ruby for each pack purchase until monday, midnight CEST.

Furthermore we’d like to inform you that the next notable KiO update for Android is now scheduled for september 22. There will propably be an update to the Windows version before, and we also work on a stability update on the Android version, but without new features, but both have no release date, so they’ll come once ready.

So let’s lean back and watch the exciting clan championship this ween, where currently the top 3, JVP, -GVV- and TRM, are only 30 points apart. Surely the championships today will change that situation, but how? We don’t know and we are very curious which clan will win this season’s championship!

KiO Week Season 403



Welcome to a brief summer issue of KiO Week. We just added the ruby pack awards to the top 10 of the worldcup Kicktipp round. We also started a new prediction game for german Bundesliga: https://www.kicktipp.com/kio-buli-2018/. And another one for the forthcoming UEFA Nations League: https://www.kicktipp.com/kio-nl-2018/. Top 10 finishers will be rewarded with ruby packs at the end of the season. If you join, make sure you use your team name as nickname so we can identify you!

Enough for today, let’s enjoy the summer!

The KiO World Cup Final tournament will start next saturday around 15:30 CEST, the tournament will be visible in the tournament list much earlier. The final tournament will be played with rematches!

We apologize for the timing problems of the group phase tournaments which made it neccessary to play most of the tournaments on sunday instead of saturday.
