Flag Chasers Community - the biggest federation in Hattrick, with over 10.000 members at the moment. The federation started when Henri77 came up with the idea for the little flags that can be aquired with international friendlies. He got a group of enthusiastic people around him and the federation started to grow rapidly. This became known as flag chasing.

Introduction[edit]

The federation developed some unique aspects to keep people active and interested in the community. Of course there is the FCC Logo, which is well known to the whole hattrick community. But there are also a lot of different unique competitions inside the community. The competitions at this moment are:

  • RISK: you 'conquer' countries by winning games in front of a large attendance. This game favours strong teams.
  • CODE: you try to 'crack' a flag code chosen before the season starts. This game favours weaker teams, since they can make more friendlies, because they get kicked out from the cup earlier.
  • PULL: this has actually nothing to do with flag chasing. You win if you pull better youth players than the other participants. This game favours teams with an excellent youth squad.
  • LUCK: you play your away friendlies during the season. At the end you choose 7 games you want to keep. Those will count for you LUCK-score. After everybody has chosen their 7 countries, a random script will generate the scores for each country. The best score wins of course.

Beside this, the federation is very much focused on internationality and encourages people not only to exchange their opinions on Hattrick but also common life topics associated with flag chasing (travel plans, holidays, postcard exchange, recipes from all over the world etc.)

After about one year at the top, Henri77 decided it was time to let someone else run the show and take the federation from 9.000 members at that time (and thus making it also the most rapidly growing federation in Hattrick ever) to around 10.300 members in September 2006. The new president was Djens. After that, some things changed. The federation became more rigid (no longer free entry) and a few competitions and ranks were changed or deleted. The highest known number of members were 10.606 10th of April 2006.
