Besides, the game has cross-platform support, which means you will never run out of competitors.

More precisely, it’s floaty, and you feel like you’re chasing a balloon instead of a giant soccer ball at times.

In other words, the servers frequently crash due to the overload of players from time to time. Also, the game stopped its support for Mac and Linux in 2020.
