Resetting game - for those with retire game lock issue
Update: patch 1.0.2 have various fixes to make it much less likely to retire units so you can't buy a new one. There's also a reset game button in the options as a last resort.


Hi everyone,

We have this logical bug where you can end up retiring your team down to it being unplayable. We will fix that for good in the next days. Sorry.

Here are some instructions to those that have NOT bought ingame credits. If you bought the Steam unit DLC, then this is save to do.

This will completely reset your game - delete statistics, teams etc and start you out with a fresh beginning.

So just once again to make sure:

DONT DO THIS IF YOU BOUGHT INGAME CREDITS

With that out of the way

Take a backup of the folder you are about to delete - you can then always move it back if something went wrong.

PC / Windows 7:
* Turn off game
* Delete the following folder, substituting ##YOUR USER NAME## with your local Windows user
C:\Users\##YOUR USER NAME##\AppData\Roaming\Full Control\FT
* Start game

Mac:
* Turn of game
* Open a terminal / command line
* Type the following:
rm -rf .config/Full\ Control/FT
* Start game

Perfect, once more fixes a problem I had within a few minutes =D

Glad it helped. Eisen Zahn. I'm unsure where the folder is on XP. Try to search for a file called slots.ft - remove the folder that this file is in.
GalaxyRuler Oct 28, 2012 @ 11:11am 
ah with search for file "slots.ft" i found the folder. it seems, the folder is per standard HIDEN in windows-options

Eizen Zahn Oct 28, 2012 @ 12:40pm 
man.. i still cant find it. help please. and the store is still offline and no DLC. Am I doing something wrong here??
GalaxyRuler Oct 28, 2012 @ 1:04pm 
eisenzahn, hast du nach der datei SLOTS.FT gesucht? einfach beim start menü in der suche nach dieser datei suchen, danach in der (hoffentlich erfolgreichen) suche den ordner öffnen wo die datei gefunden wird. lg
Eizen Zahn Oct 28, 2012 @ 10:05pm 
Galaxy, i've searched for it. Still not found. I do not have any file named 'SLOTS.FT'. Using windows XP. =(

Windows 7 user: (and to be fair - I have just upgraded and still getting used to it)
Couldn't find this folder or "SLOTS.FT"
Did manage to un-hide systems folders.
No luck.

C:\Users\##YOUR USER NAME##\AppData\Roaming just put that link on and u should find it.

Would it be difficult to put in a reset account button that does this automatically? ofcourse with 2-3 warnings to warn that you are deleting all your progress to default.

Reset button is coming up. Will be soon in the update.

The 1.0.2 patch have some changes that will make it much less likely you get into this situation.

As a last resort there's also now a reset game button on the options menu.
