    re: rewards for friendly competitions.
    should take a page from the book of Philip Morris, where winning friendly competitons give you points, then you can trade in your points for FML Merchandise. Hats, Jackets, Scarves, mouse pads, track suits, a chalkboard for designing plays, etc. Maybe a personalized team jersey: your FML team's uniform (with crest), with FML, or SI or SEGA as the teams's Kit sponsor.

    Great interview, i wished it was longer. I was blown away when you introduced your guest, as Ov and his brother are some of my favorite personnels' in the gaming industry.
    @ Ov, I'm sorry if I was a bit harsh on the game, so here are the things I like:

    The fact the FML is the best way to play football management online

    I love the fact that you are only charging users on a monthly basis, unlike other MMO's where u have to buy the game + Expansions

    Love all the shortcuts.filters,widgets, little thingies "call them what you want"

    FML works fine 90% of the time which is great

    Finally the best part about FML is that its a very polished game, most of our "complains" are really demands of tweaks/improvements rather than bugs and errors

    So keep up the good work, and hopefully we are here to stay :)

  • Keep up with the good work guys!

    We count on you!
