Crossing Cup Walkthrough
Crossing Cup is one of the most interesting and engrossing soccer games online simply because it will allow you to play in every key position in the game. You'll take turns playing as offence and defense which offers a great, well rounded gaming experience. Instead of just having to either take penalty shots or defend the net, this game allows you the chance to do both. That makes things a lot more difficult but also makes things much more entertaining. Likely the biggest advantage of this game is it challenge you to make use of several different skills as you would in a team soccer game but isn't quite as complicated as most of the team soccer games online. The controls are simple and easy to understand without making the game too easy to be fun. It isn't the most difficult soccer game online but it will keep you entertained and offer enough challenge to get you hooked.
The game play mode in Crossing Cup alternates between offense and defense from turn to turn. In other words, if you are playing offense, you'll be playing defense in your next turn. When playing offense, you'll be covering two positions; the corner kicker and the kicker. It is the corner kicker's job to get the ball to the kicker. The kicker will then try to get the ball passed the opposing goal keeper. You only have one chance to kick the ball so make it count. When you're playing defense, you play the goal keeper. Your purpose here is simple - keep the ball out of the net. There will only be one shot kicked at you, but you'll only have one chance to get the save. It can be fairly difficult, but if you have decent reflexes, you should be able to get the hang of it. Although it sounds complicated, it really isn't. The hardest thing about the game is getting the hanf og the controls, but even that isn't really all that hard. The controls are comprised of simple keyboard shortcuts much like the ones you would use in many of the other soccer games online. Once you get the hang of the controls, the game is much easier to get through.
When you play as the corner kicker in Crossing Cup, aim and power are the two primary factors you need to focus on. To begin with, you're going to aim the ball. To aim properly, you need to look at where you want the ball to go and figure out how to get it there. Once you've gotten the angle right, you need to choose power. Press 'space' once to begin the power meter. There will be a red indicator that shows you the power of your shot. Pay attention to that red indicator. If you use too little or too much power, you will miss your mark. Once you're satisfied with the power, press space again to kick. If you've done everything right, you should be able to get the ball to your kicker which will begin the next stage of the offense turn. If you miss, look at the different aspects of the shot and try to figure out where you went wrong. Often the angle was fine but the power was off. The more you play the better you'll get. The same basic technique can be applies to when you play as the kicker. The basic difference here is that instead of trying to pass the ball to the kicker, you'll be trying to get the ball in the net. You'll only have a few seconds to get the kicker into position before the ball comes so you'll have to think fast. The great thing is that you can still control the ball after it has been kicked by using the arrow keys. Don't forget that. It can definitely come in handy.
The key to doing well with the offense turns in Crossing Cup is to focus on timing and aim. Both of these things are absolutely vital if you want to score on your opponent's net. Great aim will be a big benefit but will do you little good if your timing is off. The same can be said about great timing and bad aim. These two things go hand in hand. If you're having trouble with one aspect of your offense, work on strengthening that by looking at what you're going wrong. If your timing is off, figure out how you can improve that. If you're really having a hard time, stop trying to get the ball in the net and instead focus on thinking about a few games as practice. Work on controlling the ball. Look at what effect different angles have on the end position of the ball and adjust your aim based on that. Work on seeing how power effects the ball. Finally, work on your timing. Without the pressure of trying to score a goal, you can focus on improving your skills and gaining experience. If you can get that experience you need, you'll do much better in the game when you start actually trying to score.
The scoring system in Crossing Cup can be a little complicated to understand for soccer game fans who are used to the way other online soccer games are scored. This one is scored more like real life soccer games are scored so that might take a little getting used to. Basically, there are two rounds in the main tournament. There are thirty-two teams in total competing and those teams are divided into groups of four. The two teams ranked at the top at the end of the tournament will progress to the finals. There are basically three matches for each team in the first round with the winner scoring three points, a tie awarding each team a point each and a loss resulting in zero points. The 'winner' of a tie match will be decided based on the goal gap. If you have a higher goal gap your team will rank higher than the team with the same number of points. Once your reach the playoffs, you will need to win your game if you want to progress.
Overall, Crossing Cup is not nearly as complicated as it sounds although most players, regardless of their skill or experience level with soccer games, are going to need a little time to get used to how the game is played. This isn't a game like any other soccer game online even though the controls are basically the same as the controls you would use in any team soccer game. If you focus and take time to get more familiar with how the game is played and focus on learning the finer points of both the offense and defense modes, you should actually do fairly well. That said, this can definitely be a frustrating game. If you want to do well, you need to have a little patience. You will almost certainly mess up over the course of the first few games but stick with it. You will improve and you'll be glad you gave the game a chance. This is a soccer game no fan of the genre should pass up.
