With faces the game visually helps to have a more immediate approach with players, making them easier to recognize and giving them a human resemblance that shows a distinct personality.

For long time player faces can be seen by supporter only. Before Hattrick site restyling, faces were smaller, squared and less cartoonish.By paying extra credits, each player's face can be shaped and modified. The manager also has an avatar that can only be created and shown with supporter's features.

Face Generation

Like anything on the site, all face elements are designed and created by the illustrator Beach.

The face is generated randomly mixing basic elements based on the player's personality and nationality: "skin" for Mediterranean players, for example, are darker on average and their hair is black, while the Scandinavian players have lighter skin and their hair is often blonde or ginger.

The system also takes into account the minorities of the various countries: many French players have a North African appearance; some English players are of an Asian appearance and speak Hindi. There are players with a North African appearance that speak Tunisian and Swedish black players speaking South African Tribal

Unordinary Faces

Illustrator Beach also created very appreciated "pixel art" faces (a bit dated in terms of style and then discharged for a more cartoonish, style). Pixel art faces were all so similar and so little modifiable that ended up giving the impression that there were very few variants in players.

Again, faces were build up by overlapping pictures - Here are two different examples
A standard background  Face background.jpg  Face background.jpg
A head with hair  Face head 2.jpg  Face head 4.jpg
A set of eyes Face eyes 2.jpg Face eyes 4.jpg
A nose Face nose 1.jpg Face nose 4.jpg
A mouth with possibly a moustache or beard Face mouth 1.jpg Face mouth 4.jpg
