KiO World Cup 2021

Everything you need to know!

Qualifiers start June 11th

There will be 192 Qualifier tournaments, roughly one each hour between 10 and 22 CEST. Winners advance into the group phase. You can try as many qualifiers as you want.

In the group phase there will be 32 groups with 6 team each playing in league mode with rematch. Not more than one team per clan and group.

64 Winners and runners-up advance into the great final tournament which will be held later this summer in KO mode with rematches.

Shall the games begin!

11 Years Kick it Out!

This weekend we celebrate the 11th birthday of Kick it Out. Version 1.0 was released on may 21st 2010!

Until tuesday, Birthday Cups are held each ~30 minutes. Win 11 talent points or (as runner-up) 11 coach action points.

Only today, may 21st, from 16-22 CEST, you also get a free present for each 11 matches you play!

We also bring back the rewarded video ads until tuesday.

Make sure you get the latest update 10.6! It shows the KiO World Cup on the archivist’s pages – because the next KiO World Cup will start on June 11th! Also, tournament winners are now displayed on all great tournament lists.

Furthermore, we added a small feature to the chat: You can now tap-and-hold a bubble to copy the text to the clipboard. That’s useful if you want to forward something to somebody or if you want to use a translator app.

Thanks for playing and have a great weekend!

May update

The May update will be released on may 1st. It brings the following changes:

  • Counter offers. Whenever you receive an offer for a player, you can easily send a counter offer with a higher transfer fee (with a certain limitation). The sender of the offer can then accept your counter offer or send a new offer. This is not supported on Windows.
  • Silver and Gold Leagues give no clanscore points anymore because this is not appropriate.
  • Price for carees crystal balls (the redish ones) is lowered permanently to 7 ruby.
  • Season Pack remains unchanged for may. That said, please remember that purchasing those packs with secondary teams and then transfering the worldstar player to a main team is considered multiaccount abuse! There have been multiple cases in the past, and if this doesn’t change, we need to review the contents of the pack.
  • We are testing clan internal yearly trophies in the next weeks. If the feedback is positive, this will be added to the game for all clans.

Last News about KiO 10.4

The latest update is here! We have some important information about the update:

  • The new integrated chat window is compatible to the old version, so yo can still chat with people having an older version or playing on Windows. Please remember that chat messages are not encrypted in our database. We only read them if somebody claims inappropriate language or the like. Chat messages are deleted after three months.
  • We manages to add another new feature wished by the community: A new (red) crystall ball which gives career length insight instead of max strength. You’ll find this new item in the premium shop like the blue one, it works just the same way, also on foreign players.

We are looking forward to bring this update live! Thanks for playing!

Announcing KiO 10.4

End of january, we will release Kick it out 10.4. It will bring a couple of improvements due to suggestions from the community.

Buddy/Clan Chat function will be rewritten.

When trying to enter a tournament which starts in more than 15 minutes, an “are you sure” dialog will show up to prevent accidental signup for undesired tournaments.

The Hairdresser will offer more options to select from.

Links to our Youtube channel will be integrated.

December Update

This is all about the new features the december update 10.3 will bring this weekend.

We are going to bring back the rewarded ad videos. That said, due to the minimal income it produces, we need to drastically cut down the rewards. You will get 1 new “video collectible” per consumed video ad:

As always, 11 of those can be exchanged for an item. We are going to change the item you get from weekend to weekend, and rewarded ads will only be available on the weekends until christmas (for this year, this might change later depending on your feedback). Of course you can simply keep the collectibles if you don’t want the item in which they could be exchanged, and wait for something better. We will of course announce which items you get if we change this. On the first weekend of december, it will be the brand new item described below.

The hairdresser item

The new hairdresser item will allow you to change hair and beard of a player.

We are going to add this as a new fun item in the shop for a price of 5 ruby. You’ll also find it in the advent calendar and on the first weekend you’ll receive it for 11 video collectibles. Due to technical considerations, you cannot change player’s hair freely. More simple, you just choose one look from a list of 16. This is how it looks:

Yes, they are all different. Hairdressing even includes the color and shape of the brows.

Xmas specials

Don’t forget to get yourself an advent calendar from the ruby shop: Then activate it once each day to receive a free item.

Also, from december 24th to 26th, you get one random xmas collectible item for roughly one of three matches played. 11 of those item can be exchanged into other items. Which ones? That’s of course a surprise. From 26th to january first, you’ll get fireworks which basically works the same. Have fun collecting! Note that we are going to remove leftover collectibles in january, so make sure you use all piles of 11 or more.

Further changes

With certain propability, new “born” players may be of color. So you’ll find german players with maybe african roots or english players with asian faces. This overdue improvement reflects the colorful society of this century and I’m confident that you all support the concept of totally different people living together in peace.

Lastly, for technical reasons, we are going to remove the sponsored ruby offers from the game and we are ending the cooperation with our partner Fyber. Note that you can finish started offers after the update, but you cannot start new ones.

Fall Update 10.2

Kick it out! 10.2 will come on october 31st.

It will introduce the following improvements:

  • The counter ace specialists will be improved so that they are a good choice in 541/4231 formations, mostly even better than header formations (of course depending on opponent’s setup).
  • The clan challenge requirements will depend on the clan’s average position in the 10 last seasons instead of only the last season. This will make the clan championship more interesting because all top clans will have roughly the same requirements in each season.
  • The Player Pack will be upgraded on november 1st: It will contain 2 and not only 1 top platinum player. The third player will become a potential gold to platinum (max 81-99) instead of silver to platinum (max strength 61-99).
  • The archivist will have a list of the Clan Master Cup winner teams.
  • World Cup collectibles can be recycled.
  • Other minor improvements and fixes.

KiO 10.1 available

Check out the latest version of the game: It brings a new feature to gather ruby for free by watching rewarded ad videos. Open the promotions screen (for example by tapping the ruby display on the main screen) to start this option. We are introducing this explicitely as a test run, so your feedback is important for us. Note that currently you get 2 ruby for watching an ad video, and the usage is limited to 10 times per hour.

Furthermore, this version drops support for the MQTT mode for technical reasons. You don’t need to change anything, and the game will continue to work as before for you.

Automatic coach setup max strength adjusted preliminary

We just adjusted the maximum strength which the coach consideres improvable from belov 97 to below 95 for the next 4 weeks. This is a test to find out if the automatic coach setup (which by the way occurs in 0,2% of all matches and losses after coach setup are far less likely than by sensations) can reach higher acceptance. This will be reverted if we receive complaints about supposed manipulation (intentionally losses due to setups with strength between 96 and 94).
