The game features more than 1,500 players from E.U. leagues. In PES Manager, they appear as badges, which players collect to create their team. Players earn cards with PES Manager's Prize Draw system. For a Normal Prize Draw, players use friendship points, which they can earn by playing against other users or by receiving as an in-game gift. Gather five energy balls by clearing matches, receiving them as an in-game gifts or buying them through in-app purchases, and you'll earn Premium Prize Draw.
Keeping the right group of players on the field, executing special skill moves and earning points help virtual managers improve their squads as they play challenge, skill and league matches.
- Challenge Match
Clear stages, where every stage has several rounds. Each stage cleared gives 1 energy ball.
- Skill Match
Weekday matches are used to upgrade team skills and Weekend matches are used to upgrade individual skills. These are used along with relevant coach badge. (See "Special Match")
- Friendly Match
Challenge your friend to play what formation suits your players best. Note that all players have different playstyles, not just statistics. Walcott, Sterling dribbles a lot, Alonso passes a lot.
Each match gives you 50 FP and your friend 20FP.
- Special Match
Every Midnight, 4am, 8am, Noon, 4pm, 8pm, there will be special matches in which you can gain coach badges. 3 and 4 star coach badges give 1k and 3k exp respectively. They are also used to upgrade special and team skills. (See "Skill Match") 5 star coach badges are not available yet except for special coach draw tickets and you need insane luck.
Random 1-5 star cards, more often 1 star. When there is an event, you may get higher chance of coach cards. Coach cards, especially the coveted 'ALL' coach card, gives 10k (3 star), 20k (4 star) and more, can be gotten here, albeit with very low rates.
There's always events such as buy 10 get 1 free, or comes with free FP or coach tickets, and many others. Each costs 5 energy balls normally.
You may get tickets as rewards from events, academy, and even league/tournament matches. This can be redeemed here.
Much like accomplishments where you can get bonus rewards for reaching certain milestones. It isn't the main method to get rewards but it is the main way right now until league matches and other events begin in earnest.
Tips and Tricks
- Gain 5 energy ball quickly through stage clearing and academy rewards, and roll for a 4 or 5 star. If 3 star, quit and remake a new account. A lot of people do this to get 5 energy ball and reroll, hoping for 5 star. This is a very tedious process and normally happy if just 2 4 stars (the other 1 from first draw). This task can be supplemented by free gifts from the developers which comes on occasion.
- League matches are starting soon, kicked off by a giant killing league round this Sunday. They last for a week and gives really good rewards. The league rewards between the top and the mid tier isn't huge, so it's not a big pay to win here. Good players that suit your formation plus supersubs (and ultra badges) make the difference over a team full of 5 stars.
- Ultra badges can be achieved by maxing out a card completely (excluding limit break). This makes cards that currently has a B team skill and C individual skill highly rated. You can essentially max them out and make an ULTRA card which reduces the stats of your opponent's players.
C'mon, lai play
