How to Play AFK Football: RPG Soccer Games
You’ll start the game with a team of three Stars in AFK Football and make your way through the tutorial with these members. As you continue to follow the directions shown on screen, you’ll be awarded more Stars to round out your team, eventually bringing the number of your active Stars up to five.
The tutorial will span the length of the entire Brazil league, a total of 12 matches before the game allows you to Transfer/Summon more Stars. As long as you level up each of your Stars to around Lv.10, finishing the tutorial should be a cakewalk.
The Home Screen will have plenty of inaccessible buttons, but you will slowly unlock new features as you progress through matches with your team.
Once you’ve reached the home screen, starting matches is as easy as pressing the “Next Match” button located on the bottom half of your screen.
Manage Your Team
Because AFK Football: RPG Soccer Games is an AFK game, our only real role is to manage our team by equipping them with gear and leveling them up while they do most of the heavy lifting during their soccer games. Hence, our article will focus on the characters and how to increase each of their Star Power Ratings.
How to Increase Star Power Rating
Once acquired, each Star will begin their journey at Lv. 1. It is up to you as their manager to level each of them up by consuming increasing amounts of Gold, Blue Star Experience, and Purple Star Experience.
You will only need Gold and Blue Star Experience to level up at first, however, after every 10 levels, you will need to spend Purple Star Experience to break through their current level cap.
Equip Stars With Gear
Once you’ve leveled up your characters as much as you can afford to, you can then look towards equipping them with the best gear pieces you have available.
You can find new pieces of equipment by winning matches and by waiting for your AFK rewards to pile up! So don’t worry too much about this at first and just equip the pieces you already have.
Ascend Stars At The Gym
Ascending Stars is similar to the ascension mechanic found in other character-collecting gacha games. It boosts the performance of one Star by sacrificing another copy of the same Star.
You’ll use this sparingly at first, but once you’ve accumulated a larger collection of different Stars, it is in your best interest to look towards ascending your most used Stars.
Star Roles in AFK Football
Every Soccer team is made up of 5 players. Each of these players can take up one of three available roles; an Attacker, a Defender, and a Goalkeeper.
Attackers should be positioned on the front-most side of your team. These characters are responsible for offensive plays and, from our observations, are the only ones who can score goals against the enemy.
A typical line-up will usually have two Attackers, but you should always have at least one.
Defenders stand in between your Attackers and your Goalkeeper. Their job is to intercept enemy Attackers and steal the ball from them to pass it back to your Attackers.
Because Attacker’s AIs are programmed to walk on either the left or right side of the field, it is highly recommended to have two Defenders positioned across from one another to make sure both sides of the field are defended.
Your Goalkeeper will play the pivotal role of protecting your goal from the opposing team being able to score.
These characters will typically have pretty good stamina since they will constantly be on the defensive against opposing team attacks. It is important to prioritize investing in your Goalkeeper as much as investing in your Attackers.
How to Get More Stars
Transfer Them From The Club
After completing the Brazil League, you will unlock the Club functions from the main menu. You can press the button on the bottom left side of your screen to access The Club.
From there, select the Transfers building to the left of the Medical Center to attempt summoning better Stars.
