Launching a Quidditch Manager browser game more than a year after the release of the last Harry Potter movie may seem like a crazy idea, but as I had the urge to play a comprehensive manager game with a Quidditch theme and didn't find any, I still went for it!
As a general sports fan, there were a million ideas in my head of what should be possible inside the game: Changing the line-up, playing around with strategies, even bribing the referee. Authenticity is something I have always been looking for.
I want QManager to be a casual game in which you would be able to be successful, have fun and socialize with others without having to spend a lot of time, if you don't want to. You register, create a team, set your line-up and are ready to play other teams. If you want to, you can go deeper: Determine the training routine for the day, trade players or figure out which sponsor would be the best for your team's needs.
The game is already up in a open beta state, but the current features are only a small part of what I envision to be the final product.Game FeaturesLive

Definitely! In QManager the snitch is only worth 50 points, equal to 5 goals. This results in teams not being able to catch the snitch, if they have weaker Chasers and just focus on their Seeker. Also snitch appearance is more probable later in the game.
The balance is kept by the necessity of having Chasers which are able to keep up with scoring, a keeper who's able to pull off some saves, beaters which impede the opponent's game from developing and finally the seeker who scoops the snitch before the opponent does.
Just append "PA" to your username, when registering (The "PA" will be removed once the upgrade has been granted)!
