There’s a whole bunch of different Rumblers to play football as in this game, and as such, it might be difficult to select which is best for you. But worry not my friend, as we’re going to run you through what you need to know.

The best way to get to know a Rumbler, besides looking at their profile, is by using them of course. Some, like Sniper Wolf, move fairly slowly, while others, like Froggy and Lazy Panda, don’t really move much at all.

These characters are great strikers though, and so paired with a Rumbler like Loyal Dog who only passes the ball to other players, they can be incredibly useful.

The harder a striker shoots a ball, the slowly they move, usually. That’s why the fairly speedy Striker Tiger moves well, but his shooting skills are more about quantity than quality.

But Striker Tiger and the other Rumblers are great when they work as a team, and all characters have their important uses, even if they’re not obvious at first. The least obvious characters are the assists, like Magnetman and Mr. Fire.

As you play you’ll find which characters suit you best, and which characters you use the least. Bench these Rumblers and swap them out for more useful ones when the time comes.
