Viva Ronaldo is the ultimate social and football app experience. It brings together Cristiano Ronaldo's 80 million plus fans and hundreds of dispersed communities in a groundbreaking Social Media Environment featuring an exclusive reward system and impressive features. Fully integrated with his official Facebook, Twitter, and website, Viva Ronaldo is the one-stop shop for Cristiano Ronaldo’s fans, offering 24/7 entertainment designed to suit different profiles. With Viva Ronaldo you can Support, Cheer, Play, Predict, Chant, Wave, Jump, Dribble, Score, Compete, and... Win incredible prizes! No matter where you are, every Ronaldo’s match will now be at your fingertips ;)
You talk a lot about "playing"... Is Viva Ronaldo a game?
Well, we can answer this one the same way many of you refer to Cristiano Ronaldo on Facebook comments: Support + Cheer + Play + Predict + Chant + Wave + Jump + Dribble + Score + Compete + Win = Viva Ronaldo :)
Yes, all Viva Ronaldo activities are free. However, if you really want to dive into the app spirit and take advantage of unique features (like betting in a Goal In the Next Seconds), you will need CR cards. At the beginning of every match your account will be credited with 7 free CR cards. How cool is that?! But if you are a serious fan and want to play hard just go ahead and get packs of extra cards at the store (currently in-app only, but also online in the near future). Dare to win big!
No, don’t worry, you can either use your smartphone or play on virtually any modern web browser. Although our Techies are working around the clock, they still do eat and rest once in a while. At the moment all our brain power is geared into getting spot on success for iOS, Android, and HTML5 platforms. But don’t despair Windows phone holders, as we will devote our attention to you ASAP!! :)
Do I need a Facebook or Twitter account to play Viva Ronaldo?
Don’t feel left out as you can register with your e-mail address, that simple! However, your Viva Ronaldo experience will sky rocket if you connect with your friends via Facebook and/or Twitter. Either way, we welcome you to the growing Viva Ronaldo family!
Why should I link Viva Ronaldo with my Facebook and Twitter accounts?
As Viva Ronaldo is a Social Media environment, connecting with all your friends and sharing your achievements and thoughts on Facebook and Twitter will undoubtedly boost your app experience. Furthermore, in the future Viva Ronaldo will reward all your Social Media activity related with Cristiano, so stay tuned!
You can access your account via vivaronaldo.com at any time to check your achievements, invite friends, read the latest news, and edit your profile (including your app display picture and password). At the moment, display pictures obey a priority order whereby a profile-uploaded file will prevail over the Facebook avatar even if you use your Facebook account to log into the app. In turn, the Facebook avatar will prevail over the Twitter one even if you have associated your Twitter account to Viva Ronaldo. In the near future you will be able to choose your picture without priority constraints.
Currently, CR cards can add +25% points in any challenge bet score during a Team CR match, for instance, while guessing the outcome of a Corner, Penalty or Freekick play, or when you answer a Trivia question about Ronaldo. You can also use a CR card while predicting a Team CR goal anytime during a match, and even add +25% points to that bet by using a second CR card. Further CR card advantages are around the corner. Do you want to win big? Bet big!
We will offer you 7 free CR cards (8 for Viva Ronaldo Pioneers until the end of 2013) when each Team CR match is set to active (i.e. when the corresponding Prematch becomes available on the app). But you can get more in-app at anytime (in the near future this feature will also be available online at vivaronaldo.com). Note, however, that while the free-of-charge cards do not transit into following matches, the store-bought ones do and you can accumulate an unlimited number, valid for a 1 year period starting on the date of purchase. And don't worry, store bought CRs will only be used after you have spent all your FREE CRs. Do you really know Ronaldo? Stock up, bet wisely, and blow everyone’s socks off!
A Key Moment is any match event that triggers a user prediction request on the Viva Ronaldo app. Techie talk aside, Viva Ronaldo will ask you to predict the outcome of Freekicks, Indirect Freekicks, Penalty Kicks, and Corner Kicks throughout the match. Channel the football spirits in you and score! Use a CR card and climb the rankings! But of course, Key moments are exclusively for Team CR actions, none of us want to predict an opponent goal, right??
Can I explore the Viva Ronaldo app while a match unfolds? If I do that, will I lose any Key Moments or the ability to predict a goal in the next seconds?
Yes, you can navigate the app freely and still get all Key Moments, Trivia questions, and friends' messages anyway. You can also access the Goal In The Next Seconds feature from any screen, except when you are chatting with a friend. Chat or play? Choose wisely ;)
A rival is a friend that you can pick from the your friend list that are online at that particular time. Try it out! You can then follow his/her Prematch score as the game advances, compare it to yours, and plan your strategy accordingly so as to win the game. Although you can only follow one rival at a time, you can change your rival choice throughout the match. Yup, get ready for the war and fight for the top!
No, it’s your choice. Guess as little or as much, answer none, one, or all the questions. It’s only up to you. The more you answer, the higher the chances to get extra points and climb up the rankings at the end of the game. You will never lose, you can only win more with Prematch. Do you think the winner is certain? Don’t ever! Surprises are always around the corner and usually flip the scores. Prematch is win-win for everybody!
Yes, please do! In fact, Viva Ronaldo was devised to be played with friends and to have fun! Challenge a friend during a match, compete with your buddies for the best prizes, test your knowledge on all-things-Ronaldo, and chat all you want!
What if my friends and I have different smartphones and browsers?
That’s no problem! Viva Ronaldo was build from the ground up to be cross-platform, because together we are stronger! That means that fans playing in a web browser can join their friends on iOS or Android devices, and vice-versa!
Should I keep the Viva Ronaldo app open during a match?
The app needs to be active for you to receive all Key Moments, predict a Goal In The Next Seconds, answer Trivia questions, or Chat with your friends. But don't stress if you (need to) exit the app!Reopening it during a live match will resume playing almost instantly, and you will only lose the events occurring while you stepped aside. The more you play the better your chances are to win, so make sure to be back quickly!
I see some players with a Team VR symbol on their avatar. Who are they?
Well spotted! These are members of the development team of Viva Ronaldo. They love to use Viva Ronaldo as much as you do, so it’s likely you’ll see them once in a while. Feel free to contact them if you have any problem or if you just want to show your support for Viva Ronaldo!
We have put together a Prizes section on both the mobile application and online to list the amazing rewards that await you. In the near future this will also be available on the website. Make sure you play, and we’ll make sure the prizes will rock your world!
What about Team VR members? Are they eligible for prizes?
No, rest assured, Team VR will never win any prizes. However, and since they are also true fans of Cristiano Ronaldo and Viva Ronaldo, you will see them in the Rankings. If you do... try to beat them! If you can... ;)
Do I still have any chance to win a prize even without watching every Cristiano Ronaldo match?
Sure you do! Besides the incredible Month and Season prizes, we also have great prizes for match winners and even a special prize that is independent of the points accumulated in the past matches. Your effort and dedication will be rewarded.
Sometimes I feel like the app runs ahead of the match and spoils my live broadcast experience! How can I prevent this?
This can mean two things: a) That we have developed an incredibly fast updating algorithm for Viva Ronaldo (Hip hip hooray to our Techies!) ; and b) That your live broadcast is delayed compared to the actual match, so you should contact your provider to let them know. With you in mind, our user interaction experts devised a solution to improve your Viva Ronaldo experience: under your profile > Options, you can adjust the delay factor accordingly to start receiving all the Live Match notifications in a timely manner. Oh yeah, you’re back in the game!
