The year 2013 is coming to a close and it’s been another great one for Top Eleven. We’ve made many improvements to the game, both cosmetic and in regards to gameplay. This week, we’d like to use the opportunity to take a look back at some of the major updates.

First off, the biggest visual change was adding the one and only José Mourinho as the new face of Top Eleven. The legendary Mourinho was initially there just to assist and advise Top Eleven managers, but we soon added the ability to challenge him to friendly matches. Now, managers can put their skills to the test by playing against the Special One.

We also focused this year on improving the mobile versions of Top Eleven, making the game more accessible and striving to offer the same experience across all platforms. We added VIP Live Matches, which allowed players to support their friends on mobile devices. We also released an iPad version of the game, giving managers even more choice when it comes to how they want to play the game.

The new Cup format released in March offered a fairer system for the Cup competition, pairing up players based on their squad’s quality and putting an emphasis on tactics and manager skills. We also removed the Daily Maintenance from the game, changing it so that players could log into Top Eleven whenever they wanted, without the game being unavailable for an entire hour each day.

Last, but not least, we added many new official clubs to our Club Shop, but also updated old items to reflect their teams’ new designs. At this moment, a total of 22 football clubs are featured in Top Eleven! Not only that, but during El Clasico, we offered limited vintage designs of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid C.F. jerseys.

Each year, the number of managers playing Top Eleven grows. We’d like to thank you for being one of five million managers that log into the game every day! 2013 is another year to remember and we’ll strive to further improve Top Eleven even more in 2014.
