Feature update July and outlook

Welcome managers!

As promised, we will update this development blog more often since the release of goalunited PRO. As more and more features updates are coming along, we want to give you more insights from the team.

Coming up next is the finance update that we mentioned in an earlier blog entry. On the 28th of July the feature will be released and give you more overview about your incomes and expenditures. You will find this feature in the „Finance“ section behind „Club“.

Special diagrams will give you a daily, weekly or saisonwise overview.

The „cashbook“ shows a tabular-chronological list of all account transactions. In addition, you can set the ticket prices for all types of players, and you look at the last revenue even more games away under "prices".

After this update we are working on a social connect feature including friends list. Here are some screenshots that will give you a short preview of what is coming up.

With some buddies in your friendlist you can enable challenges, request new buddies and get even an overview of all your friends.

Social view: contact and challenge

Community questions

Hello managers!

As you already know the two goalunited titles – LEGENDS and PRO – are independent games. This decision has prompted a few questions from you that we would like to address.

First up: In the forum the topic of discontinuing goalunited LEGENDS comes up frequently. About this we can say that we are not wasting any thoughts on that. It is a full-value game with one of the best communities imaginable.

If I delete my goalunited LEGENDS (previously goalunited 2015) account and start over in goalunited PRO (previously goalunited NEXT), do I receive a compensation for the invested STARS? After all, over a long period of time a true update was announced!

We are currently analyzing if it is possible to transfer STARS and premium days (without deletion of the goalunited LEGENDS account). Compensation above that sadly cannot be given.

Will there be new features or improvements for goalunited LEGENDS (previously goalunited 2015)? Is it planned to add current features from goalunited PRO (previously goalunited NEXT) also for goalunited LEGENDS?

goalunited LEGENDS runs as independent game and will not be replaced by goalunited PRO. Improvements and bug fixes are of course a part or running a game. goalunited LEGENDS makes no exception here.

In goalunited PRO practice and friendly matches are planned to be individually set. Can something like that also be implemented for goalunited LEGENDS (previously goalunited 2015)? (For example by 1on1)

No, for technical reasons this is not possible.

Will there be changes to the personalities? Many have planned with flexible players which are now almost worthless in goalunited LEGENDS (previously goalunited 2015).

We are thinking about balancing adjustments, big changes to the personality system are not planned though at the moment. With a balanced squad you are always taking the right direction.

Will a personality limit be added or new cards and tactics?

We cannot definitely say no to that, especially as changes to the balancing can affect the requested topics as well.

Will the fixed formations from goalunited PRO also come for goalunited LEGENDS?

No. This feature will only be used in goalunited PRO.

Welcome to the world of goalunited

Hey managers!

Hopefully you enjoyed playing the Open Beta of goalunited. We thank you so much for participating – we earned a lot of valuable information to make the game even better. The winners of our raffle will be drawn shortly.

For those who had not heard yet: The game is now called goalunited PRO. We need to separate from goalunited LEGENDS, as PRO is developing to something different. As a result of this we will have two versions running: goalunited PRO (working title: goalunited next) and goalunited LEGENDS (formerly known as goalunited 2015). Sounds confusing, right? We had the same problems after deciding the new names, but you will get used to it very quickly – believe us :)

So, you players with years of loyalty are our real legends. You formed the game by loving and playing it. And because of that, the game won’t be updated to the new version.

goalunited PRO is going a different way: Cross-Platform playability with the upcoming tablet version, a companion app for smartphones (goalunited LIVE), a new graphical approach and a different user interface, that is so much better in every aspect after spending some time with it.

The game started recently under Some of you are very unhappy that they cannot take their credit from goalunited LEGENDS to goalunited PRO. Don’t worry: We hear you and we are reading your comments in the Forums and Facebook. We are still looking for solutions there – it is tricky as these two games are very different now. Especially by putting this into the very tight development circle. This also includes bugs that are unfortunately still in there.

One of the first things you will mention is that there are some features known from goalunited LEGENDS missing. This is because the features need much more time than we have expected while upgrading and bringing them further. We are going to give you feature updates in a high frequency until the end of the year:

Coming up next in about 2 weeks is the „Finance“-area with some new stuff:

  • Overview is now also possible on a daily or full season base. (only weekly in LEGENDS)
  • Professional structure of the in- and outcome
  • New cashbook
  • Additional possibility to set stadium-pricings including extended overview on the last matches

    Finance balance

    Finance cashbook

    Finance diagrams

    Finance arena prices

Every following month we will add more and more features to the game. The next thing will be the friend list, just to be more specific.

For those of you, who are waiting for the tablet version: There is still some work to do. But the good news is that the companion app “goalunited LIVE” for smartphone will be out soon.

Ah, there is one more thing: New players will get a free Booster-Pack by clicking this link.
