Soccer Elite Manager is a football management game in which players are either team managers, player agents or club owners. Players agents need to make sure their players end up a good clubs, and team managers need to buy players to perform well. In addition club owners need a good manager to lead their club, or get rid of him.
The football management game is running completely on-chain. This means that every setting, action and transaction is handled by the blockchain. Xaya is not using Ethereum or Flow for this, but its own community-powered blockchain solution.
Players can install the full game include node options, or can opt for a lite version. It seems obvious that the mobile version will be based on this lite version. The game launched in open beta in November last year.
