The group phase will be held on AUGUST, 15TH starting 14:00 CEST.

The tournaments run in league mode with rematch. Place 1 and 2 will be allowed to join the final tournament one week later.

Please note that the tournaments are started one after another with delays of 2-4 minutes. This means that Group 1 starts around 14 CEST, and Group 32 sometime between 15:30 and 16:00. We cannot tell the exact time because it depends on server load. Just be prepared and monitor the tournaments list. The group tournaments will show up early enough for you to join in time.

If only 3 participants show up, a bot team joins them. If only 2 participants show up, the tournament is cancelled. Please note that in this case we give out the finals passes manually to the 2 participants, so please be patient because that may take a couple of hours.

KiO World Cup starts july 7

As announced earlier, the KiO World Cup Qualifiers are going to start on July 7th.

Qualifier tournaments will be held each hour from 15:30 CEST to 22:30 CEST for 16 days. That’s 128 tournaments, and each tournament winner qualifies for one of 32 groups in the next round.

You can play any number of qualifier tournaments until you win one.

Good luck!

All about KiO 10

Kick it out! 10.0 is scheduled for release on may 27th 2020 which is the 10th birthday of Kick it out! 1.0!

This article explains the changes in KiO 10.

Clan Master Cup

The Clan Master Cup is a totally new Clan tournament which is held each saturday at 19:00 CEST. It’s a one-for-all-tournament which means that each clan can participate with ONE team only. The first team of each clan that joins the tournament will represent the clan. The winner’s clan gets the Clan Master Cup (not the team!) and an entry in the new Clan Master Cup hall of fame.

Other Clan Improvements

Clans are important for our game, so there are even more improvements. Clan admins will be able to make other teams new admin directly in the clan management. No more need to send us a message. Also, clans can be deleted using a new item from the shop. So also no need to send us a message, and, even more important, wait until we execute the change.

And there’s more: Whenever a team above level 30 joins a clan, you will see that in the newsticker.

Help and Support

The Wiki will be integrated directly inside the game on the help screen. We are currently working on improvements in the english version, this will propably not completed when KiO 10 is released but somewhat later. Furthermore, the ingame message system will be replaced by an e-mail system.

Improvements for Beginners

We have many more users since a couple of months, and we found that we should make their KiO lives easier. We are going to remove the strength limitation of player transfers and we will change the player offers in the shop.

Fan Clubs

A completely new feature are the Fan Clubs. Your club can have multiple of these, and you get them when you solve special challenges which show up only once on fridays as you play. Fan Clubs increase the number of stadium visitors, or allow you to increase the ticket prices withoug risking lower number of visitors.

Specialist Eraser

There will be an often-demanded new item in the June Season Pack: The Specialist Eraser. This rare item allows you to make a specialist a “normal” player, and then to make him a different specialist by using the well known specialist training.

Adjustments

We will do some additional adjustments as follows:

  • In the simulation, some parameters will be scaled down for low morale (below 5). This means that losing against a team with morale 0 but surprisingly right counter formation will be much rarer. Also the chances to win against a low morale team with same formations (or even the right counterformation) are even higher than before. No changes for high morale greater than 4!
  • Payouts will be adjusted in Universe Cup, Galaxy Cup (higher) and Clan Cup (much lower) as they currently do not match the importance of those tournaments.
  • The list of highest or worst results will be removed because it heavily downgraded the server performance.

Please note that there will be no new version of the game for Windows. This means that certain features (those which depend on the app) are not supported on Windows, while server-only changes are.

Thanks for supporting us and for playing our game for more than ten years!

New In May

On may 27, we celebrate the 10th birthday of Kick it out!. No kidding. Version 1.0 was released on 2010/05/27. That’s ten years ago.

That’s the perfect time to not only release Kick n Goal 1.0, but also Kick it out 10.0!

We already pointed out that KiO 10 will introduce a couple of new items about which we will talk more later. But the main new feature is the all new weekly clan tournament in “one for all” mode. Each saturday (19:00 CEST, 17:00 UTC, one hour before the Universe Cup) we will launch that tournament. Only one team per clan is allowed to take part, and the winner takes it all – and wins the new trophy for his clan. This will be displayed alongside the existing clan championship. The important difference is that smaller clans will also have good chances to win this tournament!

There’s only one thing still missing. That’s a name for the new tournament. Now that’s where we ask YOU. Please send your suggestion for names for the new clan tournament until may 9th. Afterwards there will be a poll to find the best name. The last step will be to choose a trophy from three suggestions we will make based on the chosen name!

Still Spring Time

Note that the existing Season Pack will remain unchanged for may.

As a side note, please don’t try to purchase that pack three times. While it might happen that the game still shows you the buy button after two purchases, adding the content will certainly fail (the reason being that Google payment does not implement monthly limitations, and we had to add that on top).

Rules change

Due to some indicents in the past considered unfair play by many users, we are going to introduce the following minor rules changes for next season:

Coach setup

The coach currently tries to improve your setup if it has strength below 97 AND 10% below the best strength possible (but not if you have team strength below 70). This only happened in league matches, but we are now extending this to Universe Cup, Galaxy Cup and Clan Cup matches.

Furthermore, as the coach setup often was not very good (ignoring specialists and such), we improved the coach’s algorithm a bit. This is of course not meant to support lazy managers, because any top manager will be able to set up a better squad especially for a given opponent, but a bad auto-setup honestly does not change the result of any match.

Organized tournaments

Recently we noticed that organized tournaments are held in huge numbers to solve the clan challenge “win x tournaments” quickly. Self organized tournaments are meant for fun, and not for simplifying challenges, so starting next season, organized tournaments stop counting towards that clan challenge.

Clan agent

As you know, we disabled all clan agents due to some kind of misuse. We reconsidered the whole feature and came to the conclusion that the clan agent is not a feature we absolutely need. As a consequence, we are going to remove all clan agents in the foreseeable future from all teams.

Future sight

We are aware of the fact that most these changes are concerning the clan features. Of course the clans are an important element of the game, that’s why we need to take care that they allow for a great and fair play oriented experience. That said, it’s a good thing that we are going to improve the clan elements in the planned KiO 10 large update: There will be a new weekly clan tournament which also smaller clans will have a chance to win, and we are going to add a “close clan item” which allows to remove a clan without members immediately. This currently is done manually, and on weeksends not fast enough if someone wants to remove his clan and join another one. And there will be more, so stay tuned!

And stay healthy!

New December Pack

On december 1st, we are going to bring a new pack.

The December Pack will contain the beloved worldstar player including a specialist training to make him the specialist you need. But the rest of the pack has been changed for this month: It contains no less than 33 presents!

To make this more interesting, we are changing the contents of all presents slightly. They will contain less wonder socks and among other stuff, even crystal balls, prolongations, boosts and player renames!

Note that this applies for all presents, even for those you might still have in your inventory. As you propably know, presents and surprise items used to contain the same items. This will now change! Surprises aren’t changed, only presents!

Starting on december 1st, you’ll also find our advent calendar in the ruby shop. You can activate it once a day until december 24th and it will give you a free item.

There will also be a minor KiO update later this month, about which we are going to inform you later.

Have a great advent time!

Special Week

Next week we’ll have a short week because thursday is Unity Day in Germany. Now, we said, let’s make a whole Special Week!

Starting today, we are having the Ruby Special, which means you get 3 free ruby for each pack purchase.

This is active until October, 7th, midnight CEST!

Furthermore, the new update is now active on server side, so top scorers in top leagues get the scorer cannon, also the luxury training center now can also produce specialists with the same (low) propability like the large training center. And bot matches are not counted anymore in the paper scissors rock statistics. That said, we again want to make clear that statistics make no sense if you have only a couple of matches. So, winning 4 matches and losing 1 is NOT equal to 80:20, it might just be a random deviation! The more matches, the better statistics become, more than 100 matches are optimal.

On oct 1st we are going to bring you the new Season Pack Autumn. It will contain mostly the same as the current pack, as this is quite well received. On oct 3rd we’ll but the 100% platinum specialist in the ruby shop. And on top of all that, we have a very close clan championship this weekend!

So, have a great time in the game!

Announcing the September Update

We are going to release the September Update of Kick it out next weekend (sept. 28).

The new version will mainly contain some technical changes needed to conform with changes by Google. Most are invisible for you, but for example there will be a nicer round icon on Android 9 devices.

But there are also some functional changes. Most notably, we are finally adding cannons for league top scorers.

You get one of those (with player name and goal count added) when one of your players is the top scorer of a premier league. Note that you keep this trophy even if the player who won it leaves your team.

Another improvement is an footer popup whenever you advance in a challenge, showing the percentage.

Also, by public demand, we improve the Luxury training center: It will also be able to generate specialists randomly during training, like the large training center did. You don’t need to do anything, as this is a server side change.

Furthermore, we are going to remove matches against bots from the match statistics.

The last change affects the Friendly Tour item. This will be removed from the game by end of this year, as it sometimes hangs, and we are not able to solve this with reasonable effort. Consequently, the item is removed from the shop, and a recycling option is added.

The update will be released next saturday, server side changes will go into effect on friday, enabling the scorer cannons for next season.
