The information below is an attempt to keep managers informed of changes to the game of Mystify Soccer.

It will not contain information relative to the match engine or any aspects of the game that managers need to work out for themselves.

It should, however, be a log of changes to game rules and amendments to the web site.

Planned changes

  • Implementation of player contracts (ongoing).
  • Improvements to mail page for performance benefits.
  • System to mail managers their weekly results, if wanted.
  • Verification of managers to give extra benefits to those that are.
