kicker Matchday is a soccer manager game in which the focus is not on the season, but on the game experience and the player. Matchday is the only manager game that is based on real-time player actions and actual game happenings. The player index is an intelligent rating system that is composed of over 100 parameters and determines the ranking of a player. The development team integrated it into the framework of the system, thus ensuring that there are real-time updates. This enables users to make decisions about line-ups or substitutions during the actual game.
The Matchday player market is based on an in-game economy developed by the made.by Tickaroo backend development team, so that the price of a player is dynamically determined based on two factors: the player index and demand. The result is a dynamic gaming experience that adapts automatically without human or administrative intervention.
In order to make the game even more enticing for the users, some special add-ons have been implemented. Users are rewarded for their in-game activity with an in-game currency and by being included in the weekly leader board. In order to progress even faster, users can also purchase booster cards via in-app purchases.
