Hey all :)

Badge image
I didn't know where else to place this, but I just wanted to introduce myself to the MZ Community, so hello there! :)

I've heard of MZ ever since I first started playing Power Soccer back in 2009 (hoping one day it'll come back!). Now, after being overcome by a wave of PS nostalgia, I've finally decided to give MZ a shot!

I don't have very high prospects at all at the moment quite frankly. I just want to make sure I establish an OK team so I can begin to gain some momentum.

I've already developed a tactic and so far it looks alright! I'm currently waiting to build my Youth Academy, the last bit left of the Beginners' Hub as it stands at the moment.

So, what advice would you give a newbie like me? How can I be proactive in terms of training my team, finding what positions suits them best, how to keep my finances in check, all of that good stuff.

Cheers!

(PS: If you happen to be a fellow American reading this message, howdy! Nice to meet you. :) )

Hello and welcome. Once you have your youth set up, they will come with scouting reports which lay out some of their strengths and weaknesses. Some people recommend selling off most of your senior players (except maybe a couple that seem really good) and playing with mostly youth for the first few seasons to keep costs down and build up a balance of funds. I did not go that way so I cannot say how well it works. In the lower leagues, you may find yourself competing with bot teams so having a less developed squad may not be as much of an issue as it can become once you work up to Division 2 and above (in the US).

As far as the rest of the squad, their levels in the primary skills (shooting, passing, tackling and keeping) can help you to determine where best to play them on the field. If you are looking to fine tune your tactics, it is recommended to use the arrow keys as this gives you more precise placement and sometimes a few pixels can make a big difference in a players performance.

Another important factor in getting your finances in order is to make sure your stadium is appropriate for the Division in which you are playing. There is a tagged thread in the Questions and Answer forum thread on how to best develop your stadium based upon the Division in which you are in. First goal should be to get your terraces, seats and VIP numbers right. Then build hot dog stands and souvenir shops to the recommended levels (these give you the best return based on expenses). After that build one of each type of facility and gradually build up to the recommended numbers.

Make sure you sign up for all the Welcome Cups you are eligible for as this is also a good source of early income. Then there are the achievement chains, some of them provide tokens and team money.

Hope this helps.

Hello bro, I'm here from the Power Soccer community too, this is a pretty old account...

As a pretty bad manager, I'd tell you to level your players' skills as best as you can depending on the role they're playing and keep them active on the market.
