Entire ontinent of Iris caught up in football fever
Of course, the inhabitants of the continent of Iris aren’t simply going to stand by and watch; they will be celebrating this event of events in their very own way. For example, the new Alber map has been turned into a playing field and a game master is declared a football! In order to decide who will become the World Cup champion of Alber, the game master will have to be brought to a particular location by one of the two factions. But Last Chaos wouldn’t be Last Chaos if the rules weren’t somewhat different: The players will be duking it out in full battle jerseys! If there was ever a referee in Alber that wanted to prevent this from happening, he seems to have disappeared mysteriously. Tactic and lineup however will be kept top secret until the weekend. You can find more in depth details here on time for kickoff.

The team that scores the most goals wins, and will be awarded coins that can be used to redeem great prizes at Soccer Ming. For more information on the event, please consult the trainer.
