May season review

ASL1: Nestoroide crowned himself as new ASL champion. He collected an incredible amount of 55 points. Playaveli came in second, whilst lemonheadiv took away the bronze medal. In the bottom of the table it was a real fight. Bobbie, patigoal, SPIR and nunoportugaln will be relegated.

DSL: bomb made a great comeback season, clinching the German title. This month, he will reappear in ASL1, rejoining the highest league by veteran rule of being an ex-champion.

SEP: assura won the title, just ahead of cinek.

PPL: lemonheadiv won the PC title for the first time. This might be a taster for Sensible Days in summer, when he will participate in PC and Amiga competitions.

Austria rocks german league

Ruhbi is leading the table and may be only stopped by a bomb like AndYpsilon. This time german league is really active and played frequently by 12 people. There were some nice surprises and we will wait for new in the 2nd half of the month.

As admin it is nice to see that 3 players have already finished all games :)

OFFLINE SWOS rulez, even in 2015

Although some SWOS communities are currently taking a SWOS break (e.g. the SWOS teams of Serbia, Czech Republic and Italy as well as the Hungarian Crew) especially the Danish and German communities have started well into the SWOS offline year 2015.

The Aalborg Crew hosted two tournaments in January - the local "Mega hertz cup" and the famous "Nordic Open", a big tournament of 19 players with three international guests from Germany. HeinAir already hosted three local cups this year (even attracting some new players): Two editions of "Mülheimer Lokalrunde" and "Keypad fun cup". Last but not least the Eifel Crew organized the third edition of SWOSter Bash with a decent number of 12 participants and an old veteran returning to offline SWOS: Craizinho.

Furthermore, two offline events are already announced: The "Danish Cup" in May and this year's Sensi Days in Lubin (Poland) - a highlight that no SWOS fan should miss.

Marin Parushev wins Eifel-X-Mas-Cup 2014

Reigning PC SWOS world champion Marin Parushev from Bulgaria added another trophy to his impressive collection of SWOS titles: He won the Eifel-X-Mas-Cup 2014 by beating AndYpsilon (who played the 8th final in a row) 4-1 and 1-1.

Vice world champion and double X-Mas-Cup title holder ElMichaJ came in third after two victories (2-1 and 1-0) versus Danish SWOS pro Andib. Andib debuted at the traditional Eifel tournament alongside with his mate djowger (Amiga SWOS world champion 2014).

An impressive amount of 24 participants from Bulgaria, Denmark, The Netherlands and Germany gathered in the small and snow-covered Eifel village Sistig to have a great time while chatting, playing, eating, drinking and watching football together.

Interview with ElMichaJ

Michael Jänsch aka „ElMichaJ“ founded in 2001. He's not only the website's main admin but also organizer of endless online- and offline events as well as winner of various tournaments. Highest time to talk with the actual PC-SWOS vice world champion about the history of, offline-events and his personal aims for the future.


AndYpsilon: ElMichaJ, characterize SWOS in just three words!

ElMichaJ: Fast, fouls and fun.

AndYpsilon: How and when did you get into the game?

ElMichaJ: I got the game Sensible Soccer from a friend in 1992 and I played it with my brother and many friends at home. In 1997, a schoolmate got SWOS for PC and a group of 5 to 7 players played some tournaments in free periods at school every week. Until the end of school I have played at least 10000 matches of Sensible Soccer or SWOS.

AndYpsilon: You are 'father' of and member No. 1. When did you have the first ideas about this project and what has been your intention creating the website?

ElMichaJ: After schooldays my SWOS posse (number 1 to 4 of the members list of have always been part of it) played tournaments twice a month. Although some players were always favorites to win those tournaments, in most cases noone was able to defend his title. So we decided to introduce something like a ranking list. I am a coder since 2000 and thus I created a program (made in Delphi with text database) to enter the standings after each tournament: A strange formula that put out some ranking results.

I did also some research in the internet to find something about SWOS. I found a lot of fansites and a bigger community called “SWOS Witnesses” from Serbia, who hosted some bigger offline tournaments back in the days. However, I found this Serbian project too late, because it was not very active in organising offline tournaments anymore. But they played some kind of Online-SWOS: Playing a 'szenario-match' like Malta/Germany vs PC and comparing the results. Well, that was not really cool but it was a start.

I created a small website (only HTML) of our Berlin SWOS League and entered every result on that page. Some time later I had the Idea to search for some German SWOS entries to find more players for our tournaments, at least in Berlin, and I found some people who played with us every now and then. The next step was to organize a bigger tournament like the Serbian guys did. The first attempt was a real disaster. I rented a room for 20 players, but only 3 showed up … well, I guess it was my own mistake becuase It has not been planned very well. However, by the same time I came in contact with Redhair. After some talks he showed me a website he created (looking better than mine) and I completed it with backend and database functions. The inofficial date of birth was 4th May 2001. The website started to grow and attracted more fans of the game.

I started another attempt of a bigger tournament at my homeplace with enough space for up to 10 players:

7 players came and we played our first official offline tournament on

I was motivated to improve my skills as a coder and Redhair gave me a lot of designs for planned functions and subpages. So we built up togehter – step by step.

AndYpsilon: Do you have a special highlight in the history of

ElMichaJ: Yes, the implementation of SEGA Online OOO. That was the 'main kick' to build up a bigger community. AMIGA SWOS boosted it a second time.

Personal highlights are the medals I won at Sensi Days as underdog and favorite killer. And that the community lived on during my break from 2006 to 2009.

AndYpsilon: And did you ever want to quit the whole project?

ElMichaJ: No. Only when I am dead or when better and more professional structures are implemented by other SWOS communities. But even then I would try to work with them together.

AndYpsilon: You've already spent a lot of money and countless hours of work to keep alive. Tell us your secret staying motivated after all those years.

ElMichaJ: At some time this community will rule the world, so by then it is not bad to be #1 … just kidding ;)

Well, I've been into some other communities for PES or Counter Strike. But these communities were not really fun for me. The SWOS community is very active and there are always new challenges, tasks and things to bring to life. I only coded functions, but I wasn’t forced to moderate this. But the people I met and still meet are great and I never would give it up!

Visiting other countries, not as a tourist but to meet friends and sensible people from everywhere and play SWOS with them – well, these experiences and impressions are priceless.

AndYpsilon: Today has nearly 12 000 members. Compared to this impressive number the list of active players is very small – maybe 100-200. Do you have an explanation for this phenomenon?

ElMichaJ: We had many more active players who played for many years. At some point they have probably been satisfied with playing SWOS and had enough.

But there are two bigger problems we need to solve. We need more admins (!) for marketing/advertising and helping new players into game. The initial setup to play online is really hard and not easy to manage for newcomer. Can you remember how much time you needed to be able to host a p2p match? It takes a lot of time to help new players and therefore it's not a very popular task.

If we had a game with in-game-lobby and plug-and-play we could reach a mark of 1000 active players easily. Currently, only hardcore SWOS fans are playing online (which is not so bad in my opinion, but not good as well).

AndYpsilon: Compared to the „golden years“ 2007-2011 there seem to be less and less offline-cups: Events like Saltgehtto Cup, Prague Open, Wroclaw Open, the WST's have obviously died out. How do you rate the actual Offline-SWOS movement?

ElMichaJ: The present situation is like a rebuild of structures. The big hype has gone and realitiy is back. Many players took a break because of several things (childs, work, other stuff) but you can still watch some of them coming back from time to time. There are less events nowadays (30 offline tournaments a year was crazy) but hey, if I can play 5 to 10 offline tournaments across europe a year, I am happy (btw. that was my main intention for creating the website => OFFLINE-SWOS).


AndYpsilon: At this year's Sensi Days in Billund you came in 2nd in the PC-SWOS tournament – a great success and certainly a milestone of your career. Any other cups and titles you like to remember?

ElMichaJ: Well a lot: My titles at Eifel-X-Mas-Cup, the bronze medal at an ISSA cup, Berlin “high” skilled tournaments, Polish cups, Serbian Open, tournaments in the Netherlands, Denmark, Bulgaria and Prague Open of course. I remember a lot of tournaments. Once in Prague I was the only one who beat ALI (3-0) - he won the Amiga title without any other defeat. All those little details I will never forget and there is a lot of space for more :D

AndYpsilon: Tell us about your future ambitions – considering your SWOS career and


  • Winning PC SWOS on Sensi Days
  • More community and group features. Trying to implement SubCommunities (atm working together with the polish one)
  • doing a lot more tournaments
  • maybe to manage the project of a real new SWOS version of that we dream of

Berlin Open 2014

The Berlin Open 2014 was a very good high-level competition last weekend in bombs home. Announced as BAAH Open (Bombs Alone At Home Open), there was no doubt about the atmosphere - a small place filled with 12 or more (partly filled) enthusiastic SWOS players! The atmosphere was great, the games were great, and at the end there was a surprising final: Andib vs. Playaveli. Playaveli won it after one year without any SWOS practice - congratz and big respect for that! But Andib took great progress in last time and got a totally deserved second place plus the TopDefender Trophy. Marin got Third and TopScorer. In short words: it was a great 4-Nation-Tournament and a very good warm-up for the Sensidays in July. Thanks everyone for coming, I appreciated it. And in even shorter words: Pure SWOS! Keep it going!

W marcu sezon zapowiada się dosyć ciekawie, do gry zgłosiło się dwóch nowych graczy, co dość dawno już nie miało miejsca. Po sporej przerwie na boiskach Ekstraklasy zobaczymy także Basto. Czy powalczy o medal, czy też będzie mu ciężko po przerwie walczyć o najwyższe cele? Bobbie jest jak zwykle faworytem do złota, jednak deyna i ulg nie ułatwią mu tego zadania. Nowi gracze - parsi i Loozak, a także weteran Western i migg będą raczej walczyć o miejsca 5-8, a może pokuszą się o niespodziankę?

Interview with St.Vitus

1) At what time you played SWOS the first time, and on which Systen?
I discovered SWOS back in late 2008 when I had to kill some time at Malaga Airport. I got plenty of MegaDrive Roms on my GP2X Handheld (, then I started a rom called SensibleSoccer by random...

2) When and how you find to
After finding out Sensible Soccer exists, I was looking for other versions and so I found in a short time via Wikipedia.  There I also discoverd the updated version called SWOS and so I got in touch with the Amiga Version.... I already knew Kailliera from MAME and C64Emu, so it was fun for me to setup the online play...

3) What do you think about the community
It's impressive to see so many players from different countries, still playing a more than 20 year old game. Most of them are idealists with tons of patience explaining new players f.e. how to play online. This seems to be unique, at least for me. A highlight to me for sure was to meet and play vs Jon Hare 2013 on SensiDays in Berlin.

4) You are a very active member and admin, what do you like on your work?
I'm managing the ASL Leagues together with Rock And Roll for a few years now. Due to private reasons, I don't have much time but thanks to ElMichaJ the new website allows me to make changes or even new setups in minutes.

5) Can you describe the differences between online and offline playing?
Offline games are more "straight in your face" without any lags. It feels quicker, faster and you have more "Arcade-feeling". However, moves you can make online are harder to make offline and vice versa... If I can choose I would love to play offline every time. This surely is not possible so we can be very happy to be able to play online at least the Amiga SWOS. (Thx again to Redhair.)

6) how was your first offline event ?
It was back in spring 2011 when I played my first offline event. It was funny to see some of the people in real life after chatting for over 2 years. Since them I visited several events and I am always looking forward to the next.... So I think it, my first event was mostly positive... :-)
At last I will tell you this:
AndYpsilon told me in December: "It was great that I met you, so I know, it will be possible for me to play SWOS even in 10 years. (It's because of the fact I am 10 years older (nearley 42 to be honest), but I think I will try to play the game in 10 years too...) :-)

Picture with AndYpsilon, Schulle, Me (St.Vitus) and HeinAir on SensiDays 2013 in Berlin, wearing the the German WM jersey from World Cup 1954.

Ali Interview

ALI InterviewALI

Quick Facts:

Name: Ali Kartaloglu
Age: 28
City: Almere, Netherlands
Favorite Teams: Galatasaray
SWOS teams: Swos Turkiye
Job: Airfreighthandler
Hobbies: Soccer

Q: Hello Ali. Thanks for doing this interview for the website. Let us start from the beginning. How and when did you first get introduced to SWOS or Sensible Soccer?

Thank you too for doing a interview with me. I start playing sensible soccer '92. My cousin from Turkey send it to me. As you know sensible soccer is very popular there. Later he sent us Swos '94. For many years my brother (HakanFB) and I played those two versions. Version '96/'97 I played on

Q: When did you join the website and what was your opinion on online playing back then compared to now?

I joined in March 2008. I remember I called my brother: Hey you can play Swos online!! Amazing it was.. I start playing vs Ejder-Z. He showed how to play online. Thought I am gonna kill him, but it didn't happen. Also because I played for the first time with keypad while I played for years with The Arcade joystick. It was really hard on a keypad. (Respect for the keypad players). Lost many games I can remember. More defeats then wins. Till Sensible Days '08 I had to do with it, with a keypad. Then I bought from Redhair an adapter. After that my statistics were getting better.

Q: You are now the reigning and 2 times Amiga SWOS World champion! Will you be able to defend your title in 2014 and complete the hattrick, and who do you see as your biggest rivals for the title and why?

I think that I am able to defend my title. I want to win the next days more then the days before. None did it before to make a triple. I think same counts for Playaveli at Pc. There are a lot rivals, enough players who can beat me. Playaveli, Djowger, Marin, Lobo, Foka. But the biggest rival is ofcourse Blazej. I am sure he wants his revange. He is so good and can stop me in the air. Don't know if Coolio_Jack joins next Days, these days he is unstoppable. So biggest rivals: Blazej and Coolio_Jack.

Q: What do you think of custom tactics as opposed to standard tactics? Which do you prefer over the other and why?

Custom tactics are in advantage if the tactic is made good for your own style. Lot of players everywhere, no space, less time to think, act. It'a chaos. That is why I like more the games without tactics. It's more relaxed. But in crucial games I play with tactics. Feel that it makes me stronger.

Q: The online scene of Amiga SWOS has it its ups and downs, with people joining and quitting the leagues from time to time. What is it that keeps you motivated to still play the game – and what do you like and dislike about the SWOS community?

Jon Hare said in Berlin, this game is 21 years old and look at this, what you guys have done. That's also what I think about the online scene. Besides late in the night or morning early you can always find someone to play a game. So I am proud of it. This is motivating me to play the game. I have no dislikes in the Swos community.

Q: Who is your favorite SWOS player and why?

Coolio_Jack, because I learned a lot from him. His style and technique and everything is so perfect. Very hard to beat him..

Q: What tips will you give to “new” players on how to improve their game?

My advise to new players, keep playing online against different style players. Try to do the same what they do, till it works. Every player will teach you something.

Q: Any last thoughts or shoutouts you want to share with the SWOS community?

All join Sensible Days 2014 !!!

Have Fun and SWOS on ^^

New Features

There will come a lot more .... most for premium Users, but its needed, because of antispam stuff.

Credits for features and Cups
I have basicially implemented the first payment system.

In your membercard on the right top of the website when you are logged in, you can see your amount of open matches, requests and messages.

Now there is a new line with the actual amount of your credits.

Credits are something like an own website currency. You can buy them by paypal, bank transfer or direct handover ^^

the amount of credits increases for higher payment at one time.

Amiga SWOS - World Cup final

written by Playaveli @ 2013-09-04 12:59:39

ALI and Playaveli retain their titles!
Both, ALI (Amiga) and Playaveli (PC) defended their title at this year's SWOS World Cup, held in Berlin. This is completely unheard of and a remarkable achievement. The tournament itself had the best field of participants since 2009 and the organisation by ElMichaJ and his staff has been excellent. Another highlight was the honorable visit of Jon Hare (game creator).

Defining Premium Features
I am sorry, but i am forced to do this, cause this year i am missing 1200 EURO cause of server costs, maintenance service and Sensidays.

The amount of Donations is definitely to less!
And donation member are to less too!
So i am thinking about a multilevel payment system with several rights.

here is now the poll about the features which should be included.
Ideas for new features are also included.

This will be the primary goal now for coding on the website.....

Sensi Review

written by Playaveli @ 2013-05-11 11:58:36

Quick start for Assura in Ekstraklasa
Looks like Assura is in the mood of getting Polish Championship title from bobrix's hands. In his first games against solid player Rysiek85 and Gloomy he got 18 points while scoring 30 goals against 15! It's only 8 games but that's a clear sign from Assura that he wants to be first this season... How will bobrix answer?

Who will be promoted to ASL1
We only have few months left before sensi days, and the competition seems to be harder than long time. With favorites for Sensi Days, Ali, Manuel and Playaveli (all former winners of Sensi Days) back in ASL1 everyone want to get promoted. Its gonna be exciting.
