Berlin, Sept. 5th 2008 – Frogster has opened the virtual soccer pitches of Kickster – Online Street Soccer for 1.500 new players. This current wave of the private alpha is by far the biggest enlargement so far. Because the closed beta is scheduled to start soon, Frogster is going to activate even more registered accounts for the alpha version within the next few days. Although a German beta client is almost ready, the closed beta will be open only at certain weekends during the first beta phase. Thus, a quick registration for the alpha assures the opportunity to play Kickster non-stop for a while.
