‘Dream Team’ feature:
Are you that footy fan who always thought of building their own dream team? You can pull off this thing with the new feature in eFootball (formerly PES 2022). The ‘Dream Team’ feature will let you build your original team. You can sign your favorite players and managers to play and work for your team. Once the team is all set to go on the field, search for matches, take part in different events and fight all the way to the top of the Division-based eFootball league.
How ‘Dream Team’ Works:
When you start your ‘Dream Team’, you will be able to have a 23-men squad that will consist of original players. It depends on you what type of players you select for your team because if you choose players who are low in stats, they won’t give a boost to your team. You won’t be able to compete with other teams.
For the beginners, they can use the introductory rewards to use them for signing players from the ‘Standard Player List’
Special Player List:
You can sign players that have higher attributes and stats to perform really well in the matches. Most of these players are top-performers in real-life matches. Also, you will find football legends in the list of the special players.
Standard Player List:
You can sign any player that you like. There will be a ‘filter’ feature from where you can sort out the players.
For your Dream Team, you can assign managers of your choice. They will have different Coaching Affinity, which will help in the tactical setups for your ‘Dream Team’.
Registering Your Signed Players:
Once you have picked the players for your team, you can register them via Game Plan to have them featured in your matches.
Enjoying Your Matches:
After building your team with the signed players, head over to the ‘Match’ and play the match with your team.
The ‘Starter’ event is created especially for the users who are beginners in the game. The AI-controlled matches against them will let them learn new stuff in the game and play matches. They can play these matches to boost their players. The players can also play with other Dream Teams that will be operating and playing with from around the globe using the ‘User Matches’ feature in the Events.
This feature is a Division-based league. Players from across the world will be playing against other users with their Dream Teams. It will have a phase that will be up for 28 days. During that time, you have to progress by playing matches and winning to reach the highest Division.
Once the Phase ends, you will be rewarded according to the Division you have reached by playing and winning matches. The rankings will get reset, and a new Phase will kick start from it.
Here is a list of licensed leagues and tournaments of the game:

These quick matches won’t count in your match records. You can win them, or even if you lose, you won’t lose XP points or get your rank lower.
Developing Your Players:
You can develop the players you have signed for your Dream Team, apart from the fact that you can choose players from different Player Types. You can also develop them according to your needs.
If you wish to develop your players, you need to follow these steps:
● Head to ‘My Team’
● Tap on ‘Players’ and select the player you want to develop. Follow the steps to develop the player.
● Level up your player by putting them in matches or using the ‘Level Training Programs’ from the event rewards that you have received.
● You can develop them by using the Progression Points that you have gained by boosting and leveling up your player.
● Player Progression will allow the users to develop players according to their liking by using ‘Progression Points’. You can develop the player with 2 factors in Player Progression.
● ‘Player Stats’ focuses on shooting, dribbling, or defending. This will boost the player’s progress in these attributes. You have to use the ‘Suggested’ function that will gain your player’s stats and allocate the points automatically.
● ‘Team Playstyle’ is mainly focused on the tactical setup of the team. You can configure and change from ‘Game Plan’. Every player and manager has an attribute called ‘Team Playstyle Proficiency’ that tells how capable they are. Players with having a configured Team Playstyle will perform better with their movement on the pitch.
Dream Team goes through different periods that are called ‘Seasons’. Every ‘Season’ has its own theme, which shows the hot topics happening in the real footballing world. There will be a wide variety of events with matches inside the Seasons.
In the ‘Challenge Event,’ you can play against other users, or the Tour Events will let you face AI-controlled teams in the matches. Keep playing the matches and earn rewards to sign players and build a squad that will match the Season’s theme. Create a unique team that will be able to battle against any team in all kinds of matches.
